    Or are you just using convenient talking points? Tell the truth now...



    I said what I said and it's pretty damn simple: If you drive up and down the road without auto insurance, you have a problem.

    Take it any way that you want to take it, but I strongly advise you not to try driving without auto-insurance - no matter how much you might dislike the fact that the government requires you to have it.

    But, hey,do whatever you want to do - won't cost me a nickel in any case.

    If you really believe that, you are seriously out of touch with reality.

    Her chances are way smaller than Dr. Carson's, which are mighty small.

    I would say yes, but there is a distinction. The health care industry is a massive percentage of the economy, and therefore usurps an inordinate amount of labor. Secondly, there was not true consent of the people. When the legislation was passed there was public polling that suggested the majority didn't want it. It was passed with a completely partisan vote. The normal legislative order of the Senate was set aside in order to defy the will of the people. While effective for passage, the maneuver has failed to create consensus, and therefore created ongoing dissatisfaction. The key to appropriate public usurpation of labor is consent.

    Ok now I know you are either uninformed or dishonest.

    Who doesn't have to acquire auto insurance under the law? What authority requires one to acquire auto insurance?

    Why don't you be honest and admit the best thing about Dr. Carson from your POV is that he is BLACK and he doesn't like liberals?

    If you don't already know the correct answers to those questions you have a problem which I don't feel obligated to help you with.

    In any case, have a nice day.

    Lady Gaga has enjoyed a great deal more success in many areas than Barrack Obama. His only achievement so far is learning how to use a teleprompter (something Lady Gaga doesn't require) and get elected by the very poorly informed. Americans have already elected a President based on coolness rather than proven abilities and many people see Lady G as being the epitome of cool. Plus she already has a title in her name.

    As a bonus the first female President would demonstrate to an indifferent world that the American people are not sexist. The left cares about things like that.

    Liberals play the race card yet again!! Have you no shame?

    The Democrats history of racism never runs far from the surface.

    Well, we did elect Ronald Reagan.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
