    Best conservative idea ever.
    Yeah, forcing people into commerce sounds like a great idea.

    Btw, besides taking the money from your refund the IRS has no way to make people pay the fine. If they fail to get the money from either you paying or them taking it from the refund they will just send you nasty letters. I hope people post some when they start rolling out.

    But you? You spouting such feebly stupid positions fully expecting that rational people accept that? I mean, knowing you have no shame for such silliness, I am embarrassed for you.

    Would suggest putting some time in on honing your reasoning skills, if you can find such, even more time on supporting your views with evidence. If you started doing that you might just find yourself changing stances as you grasp at wisps of nothing, like you did in this case, in your efforts to defend silliness.

    Just saying...

    Evidence? I'm not sure I'm talking to rational people, but I have laid out reasoning. You can address the reasoning, or play the insult game. Don't much matter to me. But talking about race isn't racism. Expressing the same feelings any reasonable person would have isn't racism either. Every bit of your so called evidence can be reasonably explained. You choose to read into the what isn't there.

    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.

    Does he posses a degree that that makes his opinion less than anyone else?

    With an understanding of slavery and the word slave, his remarks were right on the money. And your opinion is noted but discarded as there is no tragedy worse than losing one's freedom.
    If Carson actually believes that the ACA is worse than the Flu Pandemic (30-50 million dead), World War I (over 37 million dead), World War II (over 60 million dead), The Holocaust, The Great Depression, the Korean War (over 36,000 US deaths) the Viet Nam War (approximately 50,000 US deaths), Pol Pot, Stalin, and the countless other wars and massacres of the 20th century, then Carson not only needs to go back to school and get a degree in history, he needs to get his head thoroughly checked while he's at it.

    If you wish to practice your right to use your property towards a business venture you are forced to sign away your rights to do so. It should be obvious why the contract should be null and void.

    Anyone besides me note that with one exception (the flu) everything he listed involved people losing their freedom?

    Try something else because that one did not work for you.

    So murder and wars = slavery.

    Right-o.

    At least you admit the Great Flu Epidemic is worse than Obamacare. Christ on toast that's something at least.
