Dan K. here's my take on the article and the rest of the discussion. Besides being jealous of not being able to afford to go to Argentina and Africa, I think he is absolutely correct about where obamacare will lead us. Lets put it in simple layman's terms. I am an hourly wage earner like most people. Let's say I make a hundred dollars a day. I decide to take a day off and go skiing and a lift ticket costs one hundred dollars. That is a 200 dollar swing for my bank account. It won't take long until I am in the same boat as the US gov't (in hock up to my ears). Now the CBO says people will be taking off and working less in order to stay home with the kids. Lets say that kid wants to get some ice cream. It's going to cost twice as much for the ice cream now. ($10.00 not working for an hour and $10.00 for the ice cream.) If I'm currently paying roughly 28 percent of my paycheck towards taxes and I start making less to stay home with that kid thats that much less I'm paying into the system and now the system has that much less for cops, roads, education etc. etc. How is that sustainable? Am I missing something? Perhaps Ken Collins or Dan S can correct my logic and straighten things out for me, but the way I see it this obamacare thing is a losing proposition.
Can you really call it a flash mob if everyone knows about it?
I wish the powers that be would make English the official national language.
Dan, you are correct the market doesn't trust the gov't. Hence the reason it is down another 110 after having 4 out of 5 losing days. And yes we will need those guns because as Obama himself said the other night in his SOTU address "I will act with or without the consent of Congress". NOOOOO!! that is not how the system was designed to work. How are all the pundits in the media not jumping on this phrase.
Can't say that I heard the words Steamboat Springs once. Heard they were in Colorado at least a half dozen times but not where in CO.
Lee, coming from the Big City I always park far enough back from the car in front of me so I can get out if I have to. If I were to park tight to the car in front of me and some jackwagon was to park right on my rear bumper I would never get out. I also stop so that I can see the wheels of the car in front of me touching the ground. People have asked me why I stay so far back and I tell them so I can't get carjacked. I have plenty of room to get away.
Jerry, if they started to expel students for getting drunk and or stoned or both they wouldn't have any students at all and then how would you expect them to collect tuition and make money?
Another question is why do they need to review the rules? Are the current laws not sufficient?
I'll be vying for the position for the 3rd time. (and I not going anywhere anytime soon).
Joe, where you gonna take your kids when the other 48 states climb on board this cash cow and legalize this stuff. I'm not a fan of it but that seems to be the next wave of the future so what can be done? Just wish I bought some penny stocks in the weed business. Grow Green(?) is up 6 thousand percent in two days.
