But the insurance companies aren't telling people they CAN'T use their private property in a certain way. They may be saying it will cost you more for a policy because the risk is now higher, which is perfectly legitimate and fair--that's how insurance works. If you don't want to pay more home owners insurance then don't--take on the financial risk yourself. The insurance company isn't going to stop you from operating your business. But the government will. If you were poor and wanted to get out of poverty, there are lots of things an industrious person could do to get themselves ahead. Selling loosies is actually a great example. But the government won't allow it because they can't claim their piece of the action. Even if it weren't illegal, they would require permits and impose other costly regulations which make it impossible for my fictitious poor person to engage in productive activity to better his/her own situation. This is the problem.
The insurance company isn't telling you what to do, they are telling you what your policy covers (or not). If you decide to be an Uber driver, it's your responsibility to understand the risk. If your insurance company wouldn't cover you as an Uber operator, then you should either buy a different policy that meets your needs or cosigner if Uber is the business you want to get in to. This is basic planning, which one should do before starting any business.
That's a decision for the AirB2B or Uber operators. In a free society, they should be free to take whatever level of risk they feel comfortable with (and they should be responsible for the consequences). Are you just pointing out these issues, or are you arguing against these businesses?
I was also married to a foreign national and I can tell you that while it may not be legal, lots of illegals do vote. When my husband got his driver's license, he was mailed a voter registration card. I assume this is a problem with the 'motor-voter' program. Apart form my anecdotal evidence, there are reports form all over the country that where voter registration is tied to the issuance of driver's licenses, people whoa re not eligible to vote are being registered and getting voter registration cards. Without voter ID laws, these people can and do vote.
Yes, he does. And he invites all of them to follow him so that they can enjoy a relationship with God. I hope they all do, because followers of Jesus are compelled to try their hardest not to commit any sins, and when they falter, to confess and make amends. Lying and breaking the law are sins. If these illegals become good Christians, they would turn themselves in and/or self-deport.

I think the elite politicians are, as usual, completely out of touch with regular people. They are very used to lying and getting away with it. Despite roughly 3 decades of the internet being widely used by everyone, they haven't yet figured out that people can and will expose their lies. It's almost funny how hard they work to control the MSM--as if we have no other sources of information.

Well, hunger and homelessness are usually pretty good motivators. I have no problem providing public support for people who CAN'T take care of themselves--the disabled, for example. I also have no problem providing public funding for second-chance type programs so kids who made stupid decisions (like dropping out of school) and later on recognize the foolishness of those decisions have an avenue to improve themselves. But for those who choose not to apply themselves, who choose to do nothing to better their own lot in life, who refuse to accept responsibility for their own choices--screw them. For some people, only the prospect (or the reality) of going hungry will motivate them. Increasing cash payments to such people, easing requirements for assistance and even raising minimum wage for jobs that aren't worth $15 an hour only serves to perpetuate the situation. If we want people to get out of poverty, we need to provide opportunity, not hand-outs. And if some chose not to take advantage of those opportunities, then they can live with those choices.
What does "fiscally progressive" mean? I am guessing you mean government money to the poor, or perhaps universal government-run healthcare, but am asking clarification. Also, if that is what you mean, do you still support 'fiscal progressiveness" when it means the government has to borrow money to make those payments? I'm curious because most Christians I know consider it a moral responsibility to stay out of debt, and would find it objectionable for the government to incur debt we cannot pay.
I have no problem with whatever sexual behavior consenting adults choose to engage in, but I would encourage you to drop the "It's NATURAL!" argument. Tsunamis, arsenic, poisonous plants, earthquakes, floods, radiation, Ebola, birth defects.....All natural, none of them good.
So your theory is that Brown did nothing at all, Wilson dragged Brown into his SUV, and then shot him both in the car and as he was running away? And Wilson beat himself up?
