    Metaphor generally doesn't register with black/white thinkers.

    It is very difficult to get libertarian ideas through the thick skulls of liberals. They simply cant contemplate the idea of the state not regulating every aspect of life.

    Whenever I hear something outlandish, especially on social media, my first impulse is always to find out what the real story is. I don't care if it's Tom Tillis or Hillary Clinton. It's generally pretty easy to find the truth. Nobody in their right mind would advocate restaurant workers coming out of a bathroom not wash their hands in reality. The disappointing thing is that people post these things without the curiosity to find out what the truth is.

    Do I think that Tillis's example was good? Not necessarily because for small business, replacing one sign with another makes no sense. In general though, there are other examples where the market would do a better and more equitable job of managing business than government regulation. Farm price supports come to mind..

    Well, it's about time you came to that conclusion about Fox "News".

    No, I came to the conclusion about you frankly. I never followed the Fox news link because a friend of mine pulled this nonsense on FB and I was ahead of the story.

    Im pretty sure he was saying you are a weak minded person that lacks the capacity to utilize reason and independent thought but didnt want to insult you. Of course...then you go and make your your retort about 'Fox News' and went right ahead and reinforced his initial statement. So...while you may not have dropped the glass slipper, you are damn sure working hard trying to get it on your foot.

    Clearly you don't understand the reference.
