Not too many businesses in the private sector gain marketshare by advertising that they are infallible at making everyone blissfully happy, then coerce by pain of asset forfeiture and imprisonment if you don't want to do business with them.
He could easily have left it in place. Now if he reinstates it, he'll look like the obstructionist. Just another example of how clueless the Republican leadership seems to be (unless it is intentional, being used to hide his true political leanings).
Unfortunately the Republicans seem to have no public relations sense at all. It really doesn't matter what they do. Unless they just vote in step with the Democrats, they will be portrayed in unflattering ways. Just bite the bullet and do what is right.
That's simple. Until the tax rate reaches 100% of all income, there is still money that belongs to the People (government) floating around out there ready to be collected.
I think our current President provides more than enough evidence that college degrees or quantity of education is no indicator of how well someone could perform as President. I'm not sure why Howard Dean thinks he's qualified to comment on it anyway. Didn't he run for President himself, and LOSE?
I would consider a President that is for amnesty. As long as it is clear that isn't a goal he thinks he's personally responsible for promoting or implementing, in violation of his oath, the Constitution, and the job of Congress.
When liberals say conservatives "spin" something, it usually is in regards to direct quotes and videos being used. When liberals refer to their own use of "spin", it generally is related to their outright disdain of the Constitution and how it doesn't apply to modern America.

Sorry didn't mean that to come across so condescending. I don't use math much in my current job either. But previous jobs I have used it extensively to solve problems that could not be done without advanced math.

Calculus is only useless until you need to solve a real problem. Which is really the useful part about math in general. If your "technical field" job consists of putting together spreadsheets, then I agree, you don't need math. But then you aren't really qualified to talk about whether or not it is useful or not.

Climate Catastrophe

"I wish climate alarmists would weigh its accomplishments against the relatively small downsides of climate change. One of industry's biggest accomplishments is creating a world where far fewer of us are likely to die because of weather." You have to remember that the people promoting human-caused climate change are the same people that think there are already too many humans on the planet. In other words, fewer people dying means even more climate change. And so the real problem just keeps getting worse (that we are all still alive).
