Mr. Kaepernick is going to be given a forum to finally tell us all how he really feels.

Re: NFL National Anthem Controversy

And if you dug into it a bit, I bet you'd find that the same multinational corporations whose vast array of subsidiaries own everything else in the western hemisphere own the NFL players as well. But you aren't hearing anybody protesting about being bought and sold by the elites when those multi-mi...

Re: Urgent! Heading to ER, surprise bills

Health insurance is pretty close to a complete racket. If you have it, then you think you "save" a lot of money, but you don't. If you were self-pay you'd get services even more cheaply. Back when I was self-employed and decided to take the chance of being without health insurance for a couple of y...

Re: NFL National Anthem Controversy

So when these 250-pound children start grandstanding around the National Anthem, they simply show the world how really stupid they are. Exactly. And isn't that big Afro that Colin Kaepernick (who started it all) wears really cool? What I want to know is how the heck you stuff all that hair inside a...

Re: Urgent! Heading to ER, surprise bills

Having a capitalistic health care system means that the patient would be the customer, which means that consumer sovereignty would reign, as it does in every other capitalistic market. I agree in principle with your libertarian view of health care but lately I'm becoming more of a pragmatist than a...

Urgent! Heading to ER, surprise bills

This isn't me. I just saw this post over on Bogleheads. I hope he's okay but can you imagine sending out an urgent message like this, presumably from your cell phone, while you are on your way to the ER? I have no idea what his physical problem is but I can feel his pain as far as his financial worr...

Re: Tax Puzzle

I would take what's behind door number 2 - claim the loss. The rationale would be because death and taxes are the only sure things in the world and if I have the opportunity to reduce my taxes and save money today, I'm probably going to do it. No telling what is going to happen to those assets in th...

Re: NFL National Anthem Controversy

It was written by a Socialist trying to indoctrinate schoolchildren to be loyal to the all-powerful national government. Here's what it looked like: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-BasKB5lX0dQ/TsqBpwPUyMI/AAAAAAAADHk/nI9AFooRNMI/s1600/Bellamy2.jpg Horrifying. So, yes, "Under God" was a later addition, b...

Re: NFL National Anthem Controversy

As long as the Saints keep winning all is right in the world. :D Green Bay aint so good without their QB. WhoDat. Yeah, I saw the replay of Rogers being slammed into the ground well after he released the ball and wondered why they didn't throw a flag, not that this would have done any good at that ...
