| Political Talk|| Most likely path to repeal Obamacare? - GeneralLee on 11/14/13 at 8:19 am|
What do y'all think is the more likely option at this point.... a 2/3rd's majority in both houses of Congress to overturn Obama's veto, or a constitutional convention? I'd say today that the convention route would have a higher chance of success, although it would take longer to accomplish. There a...

"The president does not have power under the Constitution to
unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not
involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation."

the 2 party system in this country? If this doesn't get people off their apathy i'm not sure what will. It's pretty clear at this point that both Republicans and Democrats are statists at heart....
| Political Talk|| Well my girlfriend is now in the 29 hour Obamacare victim pool - GeneralLee on 5/28/13 at 11:25 am|
She's an educational assistant for a public preschool and they are cutting all of them back to 29 hours per week. In addition to hurting the assistants, it will also harm the children's education as the turnover rate is going to be much higher and they won't be able to have the same assistant consi...
| Political Talk|| Obamacare question - GeneralLee on 11/10/12 at 9:40 am|
So the way I understand obamacare is that if you elect to not get health insurance you pay a tax. So are poor people able to get insurance through Medicaid which would exempt them from that tax? While middle class people would pay the tax if they didn't have insurance and made too much money to be o...

Unemployment rate, national debt, gas price, and change in housing prices.. I'll go with 8%, 21 trillion, $6/gallon, and an additional 10% drop in housing values. Gonna be a lot of pain out there. I plan on selling my house and living in an apartment close to work to help weather the storm....

| Political Talk|| Romney's most likely path without Ohio?? - GeneralLee on 10/25/12 at 8:26 pm|
Playing around on 270towin.com and looking at the polls, it seems like a combination of IA and WI is Romney's best option if OH does not go his way. What do y'all think is his best backup state combo without ohio?...

How on earth can the media blow up the valerie plame "scandal" for months yet the Benghazi attack doesn't even make the front page? It a shame, for all Americans liberal and conservative, that there is no longer a non par...
| Political Talk|| Excellent article on 2012 election polling/outcomes - GeneralLee on 10/25/12 at 8:22 am|
This coming from a Democratic consultant. I really don't see how Ohio can go for Obama in 2012 when it was only 51/48 in 2008 in a wave election that was a perfect setup for him. The media will be shocked in just a few weeks.
| Political Talk|| Angle, Buck, O'Donnell, Akin, and Mourdock - GeneralLee on 10/24/12 at 7:53 am|
Likely to be 5 Senate seats that the GOP will give up over a 2 year period. Thanks Tea Party! Because of the nominating of idiotic, unprepared amateurs, there will likely be a Democratic Senate from 2013-2014 which will prevent the repealing of Obamacare and the nomination of conservative justices....

I think I've narrowed it down to these two locations that fit our budget and our interests. Oregon would be more of an active trip while Prince Edward island would have less travel and be more relaxing. What would your advice be between these two locations?...

With each passing day many LSU fans will become more and more resentful that Miles refuses to tell us anything close to the truth on why Lee wouldn't be put in come hell or high water! Why on Earth did Miles zone out and not care in the biggest game of his coaching career? Why do you play to win i...
| Political Talk|| Ron Paul.... any chance he gets the nomination? - GeneralLee on 12/14/11 at 10:48 pm|
His odds on intrade are up to 7.5%. Out of a field of terrible candidates, he's by far the best one left and the only one I would feel enthusiatic voting for. He has probably 9/10 brilliant ideas and 1/10 lunatic bat-sh*t crazy ideas, but that's better odds than many other politicians who are boug...

Below is one of the better links i've seen that explains this policy.
Basically, the argument is that the Fed should change the mandate to one of nominal GDP targeting instead of price stability and full employment. By changing to NGDP targeting,...

That's pretty abundantly clear to me after watching the games this season. The first snap JJ comes in last game we had 12 people break the huddle but it didn't get called. I would be willing to bet the same type of scenario will occur in a game like @Bama or @Tenn that will result in a fumble, pena...

Currently I'm in a 30 year fixed at 5%. Will probably stay in this house for another 5-7 years before moving on to a bigger one. I can get a 7/1 ARM at about 3.375% which will save me about $100/month, taking into account all variables including deductible interest and PMI. My mortgage balance wh...
