  • Commented on South Park Death Threats
    Asif Mandvi is not being fully upright. He is barely being politically correct, but if pushed into a corner, he would have even lied. I can see him go to a dark room when this show is over and shout...
  • Commented on Protect Insurance Companies PSA
    gypsy sister, The system you described is called health insurance. For it to work all people in a pool must face the same type of health risk. If you put people of different risks in the same pool, then what...
  • Commented on Protect Insurance Companies PSA
    Well gypsy sister, your argument basically boils down is that people who are healthy must pay for people who sick, so that they do not have to pay more while the healthy one does. What this does of course is...
  • Commented on Protect Insurance Companies PSA
    I got news for you. Actors don't become rich by not charging for their appearance. And even if they did not charge for this particular one directly, it can help increase their exposure and thus enhance their market value. Conspiracy...

    About the video? The word 'Propaganda' comes into mind. Which is not to say it is all lies. Propaganda is communication aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position. The cause or position here being...
  • Commented on Protect Insurance Companies PSA
    It is pretty simple logic actually. If someone starts to fine and throw people into jail for not supporting your business then, you will get more customers and you can charge high prices. It is like having the mob support...
  • Commented on Protect Insurance Companies PSA
    I wouldn't be surprised if the insurance companies pitched in to make this ad. When Obama begins to fine people and throw them in jail for not buying health insurance, that is when you know the insurance companies are really...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    For a person that you are not interested in, you have spent an awful lot of time conversing me. Hoppe would call it a performative contradiction. I never said all janitors are illegals. I was trying to make better sense...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Time wrote: 'And don't you just love the way he jumps to generalities when pure blistering reason fails.' Tim, if you start distoring what I say, you will get fools to agree with you. As for your two Texans, You...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    You cannot think of anything wrong by redistributing wealth along ethnic lines? Ok....
  • Commented on The Public Option
    I do not have a shadow of doubt that if there is a civil unrest, riots will break along ethnic lines. However, the solutions currently proposed will not prevent it, only postpone it. It is like taking a medicine to...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    I understand you are a bit slow. But eating babies offends my sensibilities, Jonathan Swift or otherwise....
  • Commented on The Public Option
    I know that. How economy is supposed to work is that when people make less money, the prices of things come down, but the quantity of good go up because people are working for less, thus producing. And what is...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    You have not dented my argument. If you pay $405 in New York for someone not to work, then you will find no one to work work for $400. It makes perfect sense. This decreases the standard of living. If...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    I have read Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell. I did not agree with all he said, but over all it had a positive message. What is your point?...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    You called me a right wing libertarian. Wow. That is only as oxymoronic as dry water. Having said that I do notice libertarian ideas being taken up with interest by the right wing. But I do not think they will...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    You have linked me to what I would have called a very sick idea for joke....
  • Commented on The Public Option
    You need statisitcal data to know that if you pay people for not working they will choose not to work?...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Thanks for misleading everyone by strawmaning Hoppe. When good arguments fail you need something to fall back on....
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Helping those less fortunate than you is a private choice that each individual has to make on his own. The Robin Hood ideal of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor simply will not work. You will only...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Finally, some progress. Let me put it down more clearly so that others can understand. If the government takes a bigger chunk of your income, you deserve more say in how it gets used....
  • Commented on The Public Option
    You know, the creationists where made to look like idiots because they criticized without understanding what they where criticizing. And when they did understand all they could do was try to deceive, for which they where called foul and mocked....
  • Commented on The Public Option
    I put the video here because I wanted to focus on the sanity of the messenger as well. Despite appearances, his is a dangerous message. But I have spend more time discussing the message than the messenger. This person thinks...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    He does not seem to understand why he his work suddenly becomes so important just because a few people in a Swedish Academy says it is. As if, if they do not say that, it is of no worth. That...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Human beings are not the subjects of financial instruments, they are its makers. It is not our god; it is our servant. If financial instruments are like a web, then we are the spiders that weave the financial web, not...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Yes your reasoning is definitely flawed. The problem with insurance is the core of the issue and you call it a tangent. As for Paul Krugman being an idiot with a Nobel Prize, I concur. Tell me are the people...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Look man, I am dealing with the same cold hard facts that you are. Just deriving different conclusions from it because you use a flawed sense of reasoning. Economics does not rely on empirical evidence, but proper logical deductions through...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Duncan, why do you have to believe them when they say the plan won't be subsidized or supported by the government. If that is really so, why call it the 'public option'. If such a business model is viable, why...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    Say, how about having the tax payers represented in proportion to the taxes they pay? How would you like that idea?...
  • Commented on The Public Option
    First of all, drug companies in other countries face similar or even more stringent regulations and yet their prices are cheaper than their counterparts in the USA. Have you considered the fact that when drug companies sell cheap drugs to...
