    Great interview. "If it turns out that the intelligence agency were being used for political purposes, it will dwarf all the other stories"

    I have to side with Swordsmyth. The government is starving its own people. I believe the average citizen has lost 19 pounds since the socialism was put in place. Venezuela was one of the richest countries in South America before socialism, now it is one of the poorest. If I lived there, I would be doing what I could to overthrow the government. I am surprised anyone that supports liberty would also suppor sniping Venezuelan protesters.

    Yes, I meant people using pot to tolerate chemo treatment. I understand that no one in Washington state is going to jail over pot right now, but it is still a schedule 1 drug. If the feds want to, they could start enforcing federal drug laws. I think Jeff Sessions wants to: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/12/jeff-sessions-coming-war-on-legal-marijuana-214501?fb_comment_id=1171919976191177_1172159776167197&comment_id=1171964592853382&reply_comment_id=1172159776167197#f82799f7cdc629

    Better buy correction company stocks and profit from all the cancer patience put in jail for smoking pot.

    What I came to realize from the "Sanctuary City" issue is that police departments rely on funding from centralized government, not from the community they police. It is more important for them to meet federal and state standards and goals than to service the community. Cops would be more accountable if they relied on their jurisdiction as the sole means of funding.

    Your first question implies that the minimum wage prevents worker exploitation, and if repealed would increase worker exploitation. I believe that to be a false assumption. Unionization is one of the main methods to combat worker exploitation and has nothing to do with minimum wage laws. The second question concerns 1)work place safety 2) 40 hour work week and 3) 9-5 schedule 4) sick days. Workers can deal with workplace safety abuses through unions if they are a member, or legal tort system as is happening now. OSHA or other government regulator workplace safety don't current have a heavy hand in making our workplace's safe. Companies are motivated to make their workplaces safe to save money and increase profit. The 40 hour work week in a arbitrary relic. I will be glad when it is gone. It does not exist for salaried employees now. A 9-5 work day is great if that is what make a company profitable, But most companies would not be viable keeping those hours. If the government regulated every workday to 9-5, our country would go into a depression overnight. What are the legal benchmarks for sick days? I do not know any. I work for a large organization that did away with paid sick time years ago without legal ramifications.

    I have been employed, and getting insurance through my employer since before Obamacare. Back then, my employer paid 100% of my premium for an HMO. I only paid copays for a family of 5. My out of pocket expense was under $2,000/year. In 2017, my expected out of pocket expense is over $12,000; 6X my pre-Obamacare expense. I consider myself lucky compared to my best friend. He and his wife are in their late fifties and do not have employer health insurance. He works one fulltime jobs and a part time job to cover medical insurance. They live on his wife's income. If the new law gets passed, they may no longer afford to work.

    I have it. I found the best treatment for immediate relief is a frozen water bottle. Place it on the floor and press your foot on it firmly. Roll your foot over the bottle for 3-5 minutes and the pain will go away.

    If a foreigner wanted to celebrate the 4th of July by drinking Budweiser, eating McDonalds, and gaining 80 pounds, I would not be offended.

    Why does it hurt to ask the question? Sure it has nothing to do with the current presidency, but academically it is a sound question. It has been discussed on this forum before. Why is the US the only country that needed a civil war to make slavery illegal? The Andrew Jackson thing does have me scratch my head.
