    That will get employers motivated to hire people.

    Why do we call it road rage. Millions of people drive their whole lives while managing to keep their cool while the idiot in the next lane is ticking them off. Why can’t we admit road rage doesn’t bring out the worst in drivers. These drivers just suck as human beings. I’m sure there are a lot of instances where these same people fly off the handle where better people just handle it. Driving is privilege, it’s time to start taking it away from those that can’t handle the responsibility.

    I didn’t know usually meant “almost never”, guess I need a dictionary. Maybe I’ll look up the word “is” while I’m at it.

    That’s how I’ve always seen it.

    Using the past as reference I predict the democrats will turn this back on the “evil” republican governors who failed to set up state exchanges. This falls election will then be about “evil” republicans wanting to take your healthcare. This will prevent republicans from getting the Senate. The republicans have the house because democrats want them to, so that won’t change. Then the campaigning for 2016 begins and the whole charade starts over again.

    None of your examples involve a machine taking the place of an accountable person. This would be closer to googles’ driverless cars. I’ll bet google will be held accountable for any accidents because they have removed driver accountability. Jack Daniels doesn’t remove the bartender nor does GM remove the driver. This machine takes the place of human discretion as well as labor. Legally I think you’ll find this opens a big box of worms.

    Same time the Romans did.

    I actually agree with your assessment of minimum wage, it should be a balance to government subsidy. I would argue however that the better solution would be to cut subsidy not increase wage.

    I thought the commandment was “Thou shall not steal” not “Thou shall not steal unless it’s from someone with more money than you”.

    Had to chime in on
    6 If the $100,000 K-12 education that every American child gets at the great expense of property owners wasn’t so worthless then you wouldn’t need college to get a “good” job.

    This all seems pointless. I believe there is a law requiring IRS employees backup their e-mails. The logical place to start then is give all those involved the maximum penalty under the law. Ignorance of the law is not a valid defense. Us regular folks are required by law to know and understand the law. This law exists for the sole purpose of preventing people from using ignorance as an excuse. I’m not sure what is more infuriating, politicians flagrant violation of the law or their “mock” attempts at enforcing it on themselves. It’s time to (you know what) or get off the pot. Everyday I’m more and more convinced that our government is lost cause.

    Detroit is dying this is just a gasp for air. Progressive policies naturally attract consumers and deter producers. It shouldn’t be hard to figure that if you take from those that “have” and give it those who “need” you will deter the former and attract the later. Detroit is now left with a government big enough for three times the population it has left. The remaining population is primarily made up of the “need” group. Now Detroit is left trying to squeeze every last nickel possible out of any remaining “haves” in the area.
    How many people in a position to move would want to move to Detroit under those conditions? I know when I move it’s for greener pastures. Where would one have to live to consider Detroit a greener pasture? North Korea maybe?

    It’s a neat idea but thanks to the government I think there will be some legal issues to address. The biggest one being accountability. In my state(as well as many others) the bartender is responsible if they over serve someone then that someone commits a crime while drunk (usually dui). So if the bartender is a machine would that make the bar owner responsible or the manufacturer. In America your accountable not your potential customers. It’s something to keep in mind when you start a company. Drunks aren’t exactly the kind of people I would want to be responsible for.

    This trend started with the countries shift to a “service” economy instead of “manufacture”. This means it’s not just a goal of this administration it’s the goal of government as a whole. The process is just accelerating under Obama, it’s not his idea. Republicans and democrats pretend to be different to make we the people believe we have choices. Behind the scenes however they agree the government should be all powerful and we should all be forced to listen to them without question. That is why nothing changes. Problems(most of which are wholly manufactured by the government) are never solved there just put off for the next time the government needs to distract we the people. Obama was described a scenario where the republicans racked up a big dinner bill and then skipped when the democrats show up to stick them with the bill. This shows the arrogance of the government today. Our children are the ones getting stuck with the “dinner bill” the bill isn’t the responsibility of the republicans or democrats. These two parties have made everything about them and their drama they care nothing about the country or the future only attention. Their like children starving for attention. We really need to vote them all out.

    If you take sex out of it your left with one human being believing all other human beings are responsible for her tender feelings. Grow up, the rest of us don’t exist to make you feel comfortable that’s your responsibility.

    Harry Reid is too brain dead to be embarrassed about anything he says. Give him a weak and he’ll say something even dumber.

    Your talking prevention. I’ve been told the cure is to put your head in a bucket of water three times but only take it out twice.

    Calling America exceptional does that. I thought it was the stick in …… oh never mind.

    Considering who profits from the book. I believe it is fiction written for the sole purpose of separating suckers from their money.

    I don’t doubt the resolve of a Texan. I’m just pointing out that this has already been attempted and I also believe Arizona was serious about it. I don’t think the feds will allow it. It’s not that I agree with the feds stance but reality says no one will stand up to them so that just leaves talk. We have to vote out the status qou in DC to fix any of our problems. The feds won’t give the power back we the people have to demand it. I wish you the best of luck in trying to fix the border though. My state boarders Canada, our big worry is them building a wall to keep us out as things get worse here.
