    Just like the bubbles, it's only a matter of time before someone starts demanding payments instead of promises.

    Anywho, following the logic invoked for the equality of marriage, every state would then have to honor Texas' firearms laws.

    It would seem the mental gymnastics have an early jump

    I get what you're saying.  However, if a fetus is a person, then that would essentially be giving someone the okay to kill an innocent because of an action not their own.
    As for PP being essential to women's health in this country, I think you're drinking the kool-aid for that one.

    Will like to see this new logic of marriage equality across all state's be applied to second amendment rights. Then again, insert some logically fallicious point about how they are apples and oranges..... hence, 14th amendment through some other gambit of mental gymnastics

    We have more than twice that in unfunded liabilities. Hyperinflation, here we come. Who needs retirement funds?

    It doesn't take much to understand what makes some inome disposable or otherwise usable.  When you're ready to understand that bit of wisdom, a lot more doors of understanding will be available to you.

    Yeah... I figured you'd fail to grasp the economics of it.
    Here's another example.  Remember when everyone was clammoring for NC to start doing the "lottery for education" to boost revenues for said purpose?  Well, we now have the lottery.  How's that education budget faring?  I mean... NC government is obviously getting that extra money because people that want to gamble have to do it through a state institution.  All of that is supposed to go to the kids, right?

    It's a pretty long winded way to rationalize the rule of law by fiat

    Can you give me another reason why they receive subsidies?

    I was waiting for more information to form my own judgement regarding this guy.  My first inclination was to look to the hunting escorts that should have been familiar with the territory and the laws that guide it.  Zimbabwe seems to have dealt with them appropriately.  However, this dentist seems to have had several proven brushes with various legal systems for this kind of thing, so his plea of ignorance doesn't hold water.
    If normal people are convicted of a particular crime, they normally take extra precautions to keep from doing it inadvertantly in the future.  A precious few people simply modify their mode of operation to simply evade legal trouble.  This guy definitely seems to fit the latter profile.

    Still refusing to come to grips with the reality of economics, I see.
    If business A get subsidized for their business model and business B does not, which is far more likely to be "too big to fail"?
    If said subsidies come from forcibly mandated regulation penalties and manipulated tax code by compulsion, is it more likely that:
    a) Business A will get money from Business B by force, or
    b) Business B will get money from Busienss A by force, or
    c) Both Businesses get to compete in an open market and on a level playing field?
    I'll give you three guesses.  I'm betting you'll need all three to get it right.

    Perhaps that is the GOPs agenda.  My agenda as a libertarian is to get government out of these businesses altogether.  Picking market winners and losers.  Doing it with compelled revenue.  People voting themselves other people's property.  A ruling class that picks and chooses law based in morality according to perceived majoritarian tyrannical rule rather than respecting individual liberties.  That same ruling class that gets to live their lives independently of the rules the rest of us have to live by.
    Spare me the hyperbolic pablum.  Republicans want to get re-elected... just like Democrats.  They depend on suckers to buy into hyperbolic pablum to keep this game going.  That you buy into this spin on what was obvious from the video that started this last round is pretty sad.
    Perhaps that's too high minded.... how about something the public can eat up?
