Let's Talk Assisted Suicide - RedStickBR
I attempted to bring this up in the Robin Williams thread but that thread was admittedly going in a completely different direction. If you're for big government and restrictions on individual liberties, I can see why you'd agree with the prevailing norm that assisted suicide clinics be generally...

How did the IRS emails disappear? - RedStickBR
I know this post title seems remarkably simple-minded, but I'm actually curious how anyone can explain this barring intentional misconduct. To start, there are two copies of every email - one for the sender and one for the recipient. Secondly, the IRS is almost definitely backing up their data, a...

Short and sweet perspective on the labor market - RedStickBR
We're back to where we were before the recession, but still some 5.9M jobs short of where we would be had the recession not occurred. While it may be unreasonable to assume we will get back to that prior growth trajectory, given we did have a recession, we still have a lot of making up to do to get ...

Lawyer question - RedStickBR
I only post this here because I'm still slightly scared of the OT. I have a friend who keeps receiving bills from United Healthcare for someone who has the same first name as his child, but who is not his child. Apparently, the company has his child confused for someone else. And apparently, this...

Obama Calls Ryan Budget "Stinkburger," "Meanwich" - RedStickBR
It's like a nightmare that doesn't end with this guy. He simply refuses to lead. He doesn't even debate the actual merits of the plan. I mean, here we have someone who's put more work in on the budget than anyone in, say, at least a decade, and he can't even get the President of the United States...

Exxon Report on Climate Change Risks - RedStickBR
This is a pretty good read, and I think both sides of the debate would benefit from reading it. I think the most important consideration for both sides is to make sure you're not arguing what essentially amounts to dogma. The fact is, we can't pull the plug on fossil fuels tomorrow, or the entire gl...
