    Regarding cannabis legalization Ann says, “Right now, I have to pay for, it turns out, coming down the pike, your health care. I have to pay for your unemployment when you can’t hold a job. I have to pay for your food, for your housing. Yeah, it’s my business!”

    My question is, what kind of restrictions on behavior could you NOT justify with this kind of logic?

    You can’t smoke because I pay for your health care.
    You need to go on a diet because I pay for your health care.
    You can’t own a gun because I pay for your health care.
    You can’t drive a car because I pay for your health care.
    You can’t work overtime because I pay for your health care.
    All of these activities have been regulated through outright bans or heavy taxation by the cute little social democracies of Europe. Until recently FRISBEES and SKATEBOARDS WERE ILLEGAL in Norway because it was thought that they could lead to injuries that would cause unnecessary burdens on the healthcare system.

    You can’t have ANY fun because I pay for your health care.

    Try again Ann.

    No. I think she’s a brilliant debater who occasionally underestimates the intelligence of her audience causing her to speak as if she were addressing a room full of pubescent boys.

    I love Ann’s acerbic wit which explains why I’ve read most of her books. Having said that, I can’t help but notice that the weaker her argument is on any given issue, the more likely she is to cast aspersions regarding her opponents gender identity, i.e. “you don’t agree with me so you’re not a REAL man” or “you don’t live your life according to my principles so you’re not a REAL woman.”

    She makes these kinds of comments so often that I really begin to wonder if she’s a bit obsessed with other people’s gender norms. Calling someone (or a group of someones) a puzzy because you disagree with them is the kind of language we expect from 7th grade boys, NOT from purportedly intelligent social commentators.

    I understand that it’s all part of her schtick as a babe-a-licious conservative firebrand, but really, Ann, try using your brain once in a while ok? The argument that you have a right to tell me what to put in my body because you pay for my healthcare is EXACTLY the argument that the left will be making when they come for the remainder of our freedoms. Why do you think they’re trying to make guns a public health issue? Hm?

    Whose side are you on, Ann?

    Get your mind out of other people’s crotches and start doing a little critical thinking would you, please?

    Taxes go up. Taxes do not go down. They are renamed, repackaged, re-marketed. It’s a shell game. The portion of my income that has been going to the govt. has been steadily increasing my entire life.

    @ MBE: His mouth is moving and noises are coming out, but spending is increasing. Actions speak louder and more truthfully than words. Why then should we care what he says?

    Uh… could this story possibly be subtly symbolic of the navel gazing that is currently taking place in the Republican Party? And could it be true that while were all engaged in this intense round of navel gazing, the world is crashing down around us?

    There is no Benghazi in your navel.

    Seems odd: the map suggest there is no such category as Leaning Romney.

    Most of what currently passes for “atheism” is actually anti-theism. Atheism is the absence of belief in a divine creator. What we are seeing here is NOT just an absence of belief, but a rejection of any possibility of a divine creator.

    In addition, it is more than common to find that so called atheists reject any mention, symbol, sign, speech, ritual, or printed material that in any way supports a world view that includes a divine creator. Anti-theists seem to suffer from an intense fear of anything that hints of divinity.

    How illuminating that “atheists” have chosen a stylized letter “A” that is so similar to Aleister Crowley’s symbol. Old uncle Aleister might have gotten a good laugh at this! While he was known for his hatred of Christianity, he was also enough of a contrarian to recognize and enjoy the irony in a unifying symbol for “atheists”.

    You so-called “atheists” are actually anti-theists. You suffer from a deep rooted fear of divinity. You totally reject the possibility that God might exist because his/her existence would render your current, self centered, narcissistic world view completely irrelevant. The existence of objective moral principles is what scares you the most… the possibility that you may be deeply flawed, wrong, and that you may one day be forced to pay a consequence for your immorality.

    The first step in healing yourselves is to admit that you have a problem.

    Oh… and by the way… I’m not a christian.

    Romney is another Washington insider, a big govt. progressive with and R next to his name to confuse the gullible. I will NOT vote for Romney in the primary and I will NOT vote for Romney if he is nominated. I’m sick of compromising my principles for the lesser of two evils.

    Nice. Gummint gives us a visual that shows us how to eat.
    Maybe they can develop one that shows how to TWEET.
    Make sure everyone in congress gets a copy.
