The nitwit owners of this place would probably argue that by not allowing any patrons or employees to be armed, they probably saved the occurrence of a dangerous crossfire. LOL Of course, I think the patrons of the Aurora theatre, Sandy Hook school, or Lubey's restaurant, etc., would have loved a dangerous crossfire instead of multiple cold-blooded killings. But that's just my opinion.
The answer to every question in this article is because all liberals are hypocrites and only push their idiotic inequality arguments to fool people into voting for them. What's actually true is that the greater the income inequality (assuming that it's a free society where everyone works at some sort of job and no one are slaves to others) the better off everyone is! Sure, some are doing fabulously well, but the rest are doing better than if the economy sucked. On the other hand, where there's little income inequality it's because government policy makes sure that the economy DOES suck and nearly everyone (except the ruling elite) is doing equally poorly. That's the liberal/progressive/communist outcome.
The Republicans have NEVER put forth an alternate plan to ObamaCare for the Government taking over the country's medical care system, and it's a LIE to say they have! (This is what the liberals mean when they say the Republicans have offered no plan. The don't count any plans where FedGov isn't put in charge.)

Try going back to Econ 101. There is much competition in the Insurance industry. Their rate of profit is in the 3% range, lower than many other industries. If a company is sub-par, they go out of business. Although in any large industry you can find anecdotes that go against the grain, polls showed that 85% of consumers were happy with their health insurance before Obamacare. That doesn't happen if large numbers of valid claims are being denied on a regular basis. I have had severe health issues of late after being extremely healthy for years. My insurer has been easy to deal with and given much latitude in attempts to find answers to my rare and difficult issues. But while my story is just another anecdote, the overall percentage remains clear. The type of satisfaction determined by polling data only happens if the industry is doing a good job at what it is supposed to be doing. Your outrageous claims of malfeasance have no basis in fact.
This would be riotously funny if it weren't so disastrous for the citizens of this country. When you have a Chicago style management team where loyalty to the cause trumps all competence and performance, is this any surprise?
This distresses me because although I disagree with Juan on many and most issues, he generally comes across as sincere and one who is willing to argue on the merits rather than tossing out straw men and epitaphs. It was those qualities which got him in trouble with NPR. But I guess in the end liberals just can't help themselves. Juan, the reason why libertarians, conservatives and many Republicans oppose Obamacare is because it is a disaster for the American People whether the web sit works or not.

Amen.
If one is stupid enough to buy snake oil, he should be allowed that opportunity. But what started as regulations to prevent people from being duped by snake oil salesman has turned into a nightmarish plethora of licensing requirements lobbied for by whatever industry is doing a particular occupation. It's using government to cut competition, pure and simple, and should be minimized as much as possible, not expanded until all work will require expensive "training" and be done under the constant eye of various bureaucrats, most who won't know anything about what their regulating.
Yes, when I listen to Obama, Jay Carney and others, I better not be drinking coffee because it will be coming out my nose! The lies they tell are so egregious that after I'm done laughing I think, "OMG, he actually thinks anyone can believe that (fill in the blank)? Yet, obviously, many people do! I know our government schools are bad, but I continue to be amazed at the total dysfunction of so many of the people's brains. And what really gets to me is that they take down the rest of us with them. I wish it were possible to just secede.

"Here was the recommended Beltway GOP strategy: House Republicans should vote to fund Obamacare in a clean CR. Then exploit the disaster of the rollout to show what a horror it is. This will pump up our polls and improve our field position for 2014. Then we can pick up some seats! Bottom line: Let's vote to impose Obamacare on America and make Democrats pay the price of the calamity we voted to impose. Now there may be a more cynical strategy than deliberately doing permanent damage to your country to help your party. Right now, I just can't think of it." Great article, Pat! There may be a better way of describing what was at the crux of this debacle. Right now, I just can't think of it.
