    This isn't a cognitive lapse on my part, this is a failure on your part to properly define your position.

    It's good to know that your argument is so weak that even you acknowledge all that is left to you is to sling personal insults.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

It will not be in the final bill.

    They picked 200k because it sounds impressive.

    Since that number isn't going to steal the revenue needed to make this behemoth government takeover scam work, it's merely the current ceiling which will be lowered rapidly until old liblady and her pals are "contributing" more than they feel comfortable with, and then some.

    And they'll still be saying they're not paying enough in taxes.

    I wonder how many of those people donated to Huckabee's "Tax Me More Fund"?

    Clearly it was, since you failed to understand the implications.

    My position is perfectly defined.

    Right now, I'm sitting, with my knees bent, elbows on desk, typing, with my head turned slightly to the left and looking down at a monitor.

    My political positions are also perfectly defined, if you unclearly meant to imply some kind of philsopical stance, not a physical one.

    Not necessarily.

    Pointing out that your assertion that I may be calling you a fool and whatever else it was you said didn't mean the second part was true.

    It did't mean the first part was true.

    It meant you're not very adept at presenting logical conditionals for public perusal.

    The logic traps you create for yourself aren't assigned to me to unravel and correct. My name isn't Samurai Second Grade Teacher-San.

    I haven't slung personal insults, I've bent over backwards encouraging you to examine your logical posturing without actually -ewww- holding your hand to do so.

    Okay, so it's vastly entertaining to watch someone like yourself work diligently with that shovel.

    Can you explain why you think the hole you're in will get less deep if you persist in digging?

    Can you identify the single logical flaw you made that got yourself special attention from your superior, me?

    Re: Unions will dodge O's health tax

    they raised the exemption from 8500 for an individual to 8900, for a family from 23000 to 24000

    UNLESS you're member of a FAVORED union

    the secrecy of this bill's crafting

    the bribes

    the strongarm nature of its passage

    he had a capitol hill rally and wouldn't let the MEMBERS hold their blackberries

    shh, shh, can't let the public know what we're doing

    and now, the newest, biggest buzzword, blooming like a southern california fire fanned by hot santa ana winds---EXEMPTIONS

    nebraska---let the other FORTY NINE states pay

    government motors---let OUT of obama's brand new, embarrassingly ad hoc bank tax, his FINANCIAL CRISIS RESPONSIBILITY FEE

    LOL!

    uaw, spared as much pain as possible in the auto bankruptcies, rewarded beyond all due, while stockholders and especially taxpayers get screwed

    the secret deal with phrma

    and now this---the let-my-people-go COLLECTIVE BARGAINING exemption

    no wonder they have to surrender their blackberries

    this pill is poison, they're chumps to pass it

    can't they hear MASSACHUSETTS, her voice so loud and clear?

    it's only a couple hundred miles

    and they're hardwired on the same wavelength

    weird

    party leadership is playing so like petrograd, it's engendering rage out there IN MASSACHUSETTS

    oh well

    party on

    Excellent post prof. You summed up Obama's first year pretty well. I surely would have thanked it if the system were enabled. I'd just add creditors to your list of people that were screwed in the UAW deal.

    The fact that BRIBES are necessary says EVERYTHING about this plan, and the left.

    Since when is the New York Post breaking news?

    Gotta love the journalistic integrity of the headline...

    Better late then never to complain about how breaking something is.

    Re: Unions will dodge O's health tax

    the ny post is responsible for contributors to obama being EXEMPTED from taxes everyone else must pay?

    are you sure it's not the nebraska post?

    the unmeasured mindlessness only a cspan afficianado ignorant of conference procedures could be capable of
