"I stand in solidarity with journalist and advocate (Vargas). He exemplifies what America is about." Yeah, today it is about lawlessness and anarchy, unless you are a US citizen, then, by golly, you'd better follow the law. No, wait, I mean if you are the middle class, you'd better follow the law. Rich drunk drivers and poor young thugs of color don't have to follow the laws either.

You know what's really sad, is if the kids don't eat at school (because the food sucks), and then gorge when they get home, they are going to get FAT! Their body is going to go into "starvation" mode, drop their metabolisms, and start storing calories. Jeez, unintended consequences anyone?

What? They don't even let you send a sack lunch with your child and FORCE you to buy school lunches? I swear there's a lawsuit in there somewhere. That just blew my mind, right out my left ear. Oh my, Toto, I don't think we're in the U.S.A. anymore...!

Wow, have we come so far that our government regulates how many calories we can feed our kid for a snack (albeit indirectly by controlling the snacks at school)? I don't think even the USSR went that far!
Hah hah, competitive? Sorry, it's not. Know why? Because health plans that do well and make even a little profit, while still insuring that a significant portion of member premiums are spent on health care and a cap on administrative costs, have to share their profits with health plans who do terribly. A competitive market would let the best health plan win, not force the best to carry the least.
Yeah, I absolutely agree with Heinlein's requirements for political participation.
I'll crack a Billy Beer to that, Stan!

The whole reason the government won't privatize it is all those politicians will lose the ability to write IOU's on the Social Security account...! How can they Ponzi if you take the scheme away?
