"mental health day"??
 
WTF?
 
I dont really employ people(as part of a side venture me and 3 other people have a few part time people) so maybe Im not one to talk, but if I had regular employees and they told me they were taking a 'mental health day' then they'd be dismissed that very moment.
 
Amazing...

I prefer my office. Door is open if you need to come in. But I often have conference calls with vendors, customers, or international collaborators. Don't think I want to be taking those calls from the open environment.

Me too. Personally, I want a door. I don't listen to music while
programming, either.

What's embarrassing about Russian stuff? Do you actually think Trump
cares about what liberals think?

One more appointment to the SCOTUS and who cares about "the drawbacks
of electing a president with no real principles except "win" and "get
something done".
 
It's startling how many things I would now vote for others to do that
I would not do myself.

well the senate is out(in fact its pretty likely dems lose seats there)

dems need to be aware that public interest in these whole stories they are pushing are very low.

umm...there are a bunch of dems who would also have to see the light on single payer too.

No, but understand that buying quality, buying food in bulk,
cooking ones own food and steady saving and investing will
take you from zero to comfortable, if not set for life.

If that's the case, I'd like to see the calculations from some third world countries by the same author.

I'm a Yankee who has lived in the South. And when you live in the South you
learn one thing about that "Southern Hospitality". It's a mile wide and an inch deep.

misleading because jackson, ms and a typical jersey exubrish area are 50 times more similar to each other than either is to a third world country.
 
You can have access to uber trained medical specialists of every kind in Jackson, shop at Whole Foods, buy a ferrari and have it serviced, etc etc...most of the things upper middle class people enjoy doing in jackson you can do. Now does Jackson have the same variety and quantity of things in terms of culture and entertainment as Jersey(or more specifically across the bridge depending on what part of jersey you live)? Of course not....but if we're speaking specifically about how people like us typically measure quality of life, there are a good number of advantages to jackson, ms vs most of new jersey.....(and I bet there are places in new jersey that are actually quite similar)
 
Now some *real truly rural* place in mississippi or alabama? Or georgia or Oklahoma or Florida or South Carolina or MIssouri or MIchigan or Iowa? Id have trouble with that....

Read what? If the laugh was disruptive then that is sufficient.
The judge says it was not disruptive. He was not in the chamber
and neither were we.
 
There is no accounting for what a judge will do.
That is because they are not accountable.
The judge is only right because there is no appeal.
I am right and he is wrong.

You aren't reading it carefully. Already gave you the punchline.

Because the ONLY legal means to undo it would be to pass
another law. If the only way the moderates will support the
initial bill is by changing something for them it's stupid to
expect them to vote to remove it later.

No such expectation...
 
I suspect voiding the requirement to have insurance would not require
a vote. SCOTUS could declare the requirement unconstitutional. Or an
Exec Order might excuse not enforcing the requirement law. There may
be a way to underfund the subsidy. In any event I suspect a savvy
politician could determine how to proceed even if a court reversed -
and that might not occur before the damage was done.
 
As a last resort anti-Trump people have made usurping the rights of
others, rioting and violence acceptable.
 
Sometimes you have to give a little to get a little. It's called
whatever it takes.
