    I'm not against Rand's plan. I'm all for it. I just hope repealing the mandate doesn't get lost in the shuffle. I fully expect Rand to fight to repeal the mandate. I'm not sure about the rest of the GOP. After all the mandate was the idea of the treacherous "Heritage Foundation."

    Dear Rand. Please get rid of the mandate. After that, I don't care. Thanks a bunch.

    You're missing the fact that Congress has not legalized marijuana so the attorney general of the U.S. can enforce federal law and crack down on marijuana even where it has been legalized at the state level. Obama's AGs, despite their faults, by and large did not go marijuana users in states where marijuana is legal. Further Jeff Sessions is a champion of asset forfeiture and the unPatriotic Act.

    Okay. I'm not a Trump fan. I get attacked routinely by the most rabid Trump fans. But if the reports are true that Donald Trump plans to meet Vladimir Putin sometime after being inagurated, how is that a violation of the Logan Act?

    :rolleyes: But "for a long time" the private property could not self report. Now it can. There is a difference between police dusting for fingerprints and the police saying "Alexa....give me a rundown on what's being going on here the past 48 hours."

    Cause....Israel is such a friend of freedom in the middle east. :rolleyes: It's interesting to note that when Iraqi Christians were fleeing Iraq by the hundreds of thousands because we "liberated" Iraq's Shiite majority to begin oppressing everyone else, most went to Syria. Why didn't they go to Israel? Rhetorical question.

    Dr. Carson is a smart man, at genius level when it comes to neurosurgery. But ^that was the really stupid thing he said. If you lack the experience to run a federal bureaucracy then why on earth would you run for president? I'm guessing that he simply didn't want the controversy that will come with being over Health and Human Services while the GOP is trying to dismantle Obamacare. And being surgeon general would mean having to deal with thorny issues like abortion and "gender identity disorder." I could see it now. "Dr. Carson, do you believe that little boys who decide sometime in elementary school that they want to be little girls are normal? Do you think they should be encouraged or discouraged in that decision?" No win situation Dr. Carson, especially thanks to his unapologetic rhetoric on LGBTQ issues. But where's the controversy regarding HUD?

    And it's still mocking the disabled. Good grief the level of cognitive dissonance here is astounding. So if I make fun of the disabled 24/7 then when the person I'm making fun of is actually disabled it doesn't matter? Well I guess one way of getting out of calling someone the n-word is to just call everyone the n-word. Case in point. And for the record I don't give to shyts about Donald Trump mocking the disabled (he clearly did) or Robert Byrd using the n-word (he clearly did), but this trying to pretend what clearly happened didn't because "we don't like the liberal media" is silly.

    Good response. True. :rolleyes: Just because someone shouldn't "take the media's word for it" doesn't mean that person should "take Trump's spin on it." On what plane of reality is this not mocking the disabled?

    The one thing the federal government actually has a right to do under the commerce clause is to stop states from interfering with interstate commerce. State laws that bar insurance companies from competing across state lines do just that. Also the tax code should be changed (scrapped really, but that's a fight for another day) so that health care expenses are "above the line" deductible. In other words you should get a dollar for dollar reduction in your tax burden for every dollar spent on healthcare, whether that is for paying your deductible, paying your premium, or just simply paying your doctor outright. And yes, the mandate should be sh&^canned.

    Okay. Ya got me. I will admit when I'm wrong. I'm a bit shocked that Trump would do the right thing on this. Spending 1 trillion on infrastructure makes more sense than spending 1 trillion on a stupid designed by committee "joint strike fighter" that can't even do the job it was designed to do.

    Wow! Score a liberty point for John Kasich. (I don't know if he pushed for it but at least he signed it.) Let's hope Trump will take note. (I doubt it, but that would be nice.)

    Hmmmm...maybe. Maybe not. How many people have been driven to get subsidized insurance because of the "mandate" who otherwise would have said "Thanks but no thanks" to the subsidy? How many are saying "Screw it" to the mandate and just paying the fine? How many have decided to just drop out of the economy altogether?

    True. Putin saved Assad and Assad has been protecting Christians both those native to Syria and the ones who fled to Syria from Iraq. That said, China and Russia have already formed an alliance to counterbalance U.S. stupidity and Iran, India, Pakistan and other nations friendly and hostile to the U.S. are a part of it. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Cooperation_Organisation Even Turkey is now coming on board. All of this started back in 1996 and it's the reason why we can't go to war with Iran and why the war against Syria was doomed from the start. Syria filed an application to join as an "observer" to the SCO back in the summer of 2015. (See: http://tass.com/world/799107) And what followed? Why the Russian intervention in Syria of course. (See: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/14/russias-military-action-in-syria-timeline).

The War of the Dandelions

I wrote this up this morning. Enjoy. Spread if you like it.

The War of the Dandelions

In one neighborhood of small town America, a father of five was terribly distraught at the dandelions overtaking his yard. He sent his children out to pick them all, paying them a small allowance. He was so proud of his yard, that he decided he should send his children out to neighboring yards on a daily basis to help his neighbors with their own
