Irregardless of what the shooter did I think banning spongebob is a pretty good plan.
This is something I couldn't agree with more. Inability to file for bankruptcy independently and instead having to hope for some sort of debt forgiveness like this has left me not able to be productive since I can't own a vehicle and none of the places in town will hire you if you don't have a licence and a vehicle.

It's not the school's job it's the parents' job. On the other hand parents need to realize teenagers will have sex, they're defiant sh-theads that have been doing the exact opposite of what their parents have been telling them for millenia ESPECIALLY when it comes to when their parents say 'don't have sex'. Plan for it or pay for it.

Is there anything you can give a teenager that lessens the consequences of drinking should they do so despite your best efforts to prevent it? Is there anything you can give a teenager that lessens the consequences of sex should they do so despite your best efforts to prevent it? The answers to these questions aren't the same and thus your analogy is worthless and you're worthless for using it.
>Having to pay union workers roughly $100 per hour I call bullfeces. PROVE that a union worker at hostess in an unskilled and non-hazardous position earned that amount. Hostess didn't fail because if unions, it was its own fecal mismanagement. The company was doing poorly since the 2000s and while the union workers agreed to take pay cuts to keep the company afloat the CEOs each gave themselves raises, one CEO raised his own pay three times while the company was failing. Even if the labour costs are high a smart company would have invested in better automation to make up for it, the management was too busy figuring out how to fatten their own wallets to figure out how to keep the company's wallet from becoming anorexic.
The company was mismanaged since the early 2000s. The unions kept giving them concessions and rather than using them to keep the company profitable each of the CEOs instead turned around and gave themselves raises and hamstrung the company.

Insurance Exchanges Won't Work

The problem with this supply/demand analysis is that with something like insurance the greater the demand is the more people are paying into it as well, thereby increasing the supply. And since the we have this requirement to purchase insurance the market is captive. Putting a ceiling on it is only logical since that's the only thing that would prevent abuse.

The law requires even basic coverage have a certain level of service and that the ratio of revenue spent on coverage to revenue spent on salaries/marketing/etc be at or above a certain level so such a thing would be fraudulent.

As far as coercing the states into medicaid expansion the feds just have to freeze the standard medicaid budget and let inflation and increased population do the work so they have to take the bonus funds if they want to survive.
