    That is not just my position, or just one way of looking at it. It is the law. Your beef is not with me, it is with the constitution.

    I miss Roy Barnes. Purdue should be more focused in trying not to destroy our education system over some silly ideological battle. Especially when other states are suing over the same thing and essentially footing the bill for this fight.

    It is not the law.

    The Constitution doesn't grant Congress an infinite power to compel people's behavior through the tax code.

    Why, you ask? Why hire a "Special AG" when you already got a perfectly good one?

    Well, when the elected AG tells you:



    The State does not have a viable legal claim.

    So, when you don't get the answer you want, hire someone to give you that answer... With Tax-payer dollars.

    Nice.
    Why hire a special AG? Because using the regular AG does not get the same kind of press as announcing that you have hired a super duper top secret with whipped cream and a cherry on top AG.

    Oops.... I forgot the nuts. That's OK, the Tea Party will supply those.

    Well, no threads complete without Dana taking a pot shot at the tea parties in an entirely unrelated, off topic, way.

    First, Right already hit on the pro bono thing and tax dollars.

    Second, I would say my agreement with this would be based in part on what the general feeling of the state is with regards to the bill. If its not costing them money and the majority of people are against it I don't have a big issue with it, though I think its kind of pointless. If most in the state were for the legislation I would be against this though.

    And the fact that Sarah Palin associated herself with the movement makes it doubly important to slam them. No doubt this is all Bush's fault.

    Have you never filed a federal income tax return?? The entire tax code consists of congress compelling behavior through the tax code.

    Again you fail to see the difference between an incentive and a mandate. If I do just fine taking public transportation, I don't feel "compelled" to go spend $25,000 on a new car simply because I can get a minor cost offset on my taxes.

    Feeling "compelled" is Obama saying, "I don't care if you want a car or not. You either buy one, or every year I'm going to make you pay me what everyone else pays for their car."

    The tards in Georgia do not have a case. If they even ATTEMPT such an action, the SCOTUS will crush their sorry asses.
