Random Thoughts

I believe that that is incorrect. It was sold to the public as a penalty, not a tax, but in arguments before the SC, the administration lawyers used every possibility to try to get a favorable ruling, including saying that the fine was a tax. Apparently, by law or precedent, the court must consider all arguments, and of course it is already long since established that the government has the power of taxation. I believe that Justice Roberts made his ruling in good faith, thinking that tying Obamacare around the president's neck would lead to his being voted out of office and the law being repealed, which would have been a much less divisive way of getting rid of it. But conservatives fielded a weak candidate, failed to support him and screwed themselves. We need to win elections, not prevail by means that the left can easily portray as disenfranchising voters. For the same reason, conservatives need to stop blathering about impeachment. It is the right thing in principle; in reality, it would be an unmitigated disaster for conservatism and the country.
I guess in the Orwellian world in which reductions of the rate of increase in spending are called budget 'cuts', morons like you can be forgiven for thinking our wish not to pay for the murder of unborn children is remotely like state control for a woman's body. I wonder if you posed the same objection to Mr. Obama's 'Julia' campaign, because a life lived under those guidelines would subject a woman to FAR more state control than anything any conservative has proposed.
I see this response often on here, and yet the comment referred to never appears on my screen as actually flagged, When I flagged someone, the box that still, in the post you refer to as 'flagged', reads 'flag as offensive', changed to reading 'flagged'. Did you actually hit the flag button, or is it just something you'd like to do, but can't muster up the nerve?

The Myth of 'Traditional Marriage'

I'd be interested to hear how homosexual marriage 'offer(s) a framework for procreation and upholding the interest of children in a legally protected family.' Apparently it suspends the laws of biology?
As Nietzsche said, 'Without music, life would be a mistake.' And it can be a very potent consolation in these parlous times. No one suggested entertainment is God, or anything remotely like it.
Let's not, since you have nothing worthwhile to say about it.
Absolutely absurd. But fun! Thanks for playing.

Poll: Grimes: 46%; McConnell: 42%

Damn, I was hoping she was Mr. McConnell's Republican challenger. I don't live in Kentucky but if I did I believe, based on that photo, I could, ah, get behind Ms. Grimes.
If there ever is a real conservative revolution, it will follow the example of the Founders and there will be no hangings. Murdering one's political opponents is the Left's modus operandi.

Sex, Death and Loathing in Hollywood

Of course it makes it less tragic. Wonderful, talented, good people die all the time, in horrible and horrifying ways, due to circumstances utterly beyond their control, in some cases almost beyond imagining. I have enjoyed Mr. Hoffman's work a great deal; he was a tremendously talented actor, but his death was the result of a foolish decision he made. It wasn't tragic, it was pathetic, sordid and sad.

Covet is a verb; sin is a noun. More Fremdschaden. My heart bleeds for your cluelessness.
