re: Russia is starting to speak about Baltic countries as it did about Ukraine - Poodlebrain
[quote]Of course the Baltics are all in NATO. The question is does Putin care about that?[/quote]Yes, he cares. The political calculus he performs might lead him to conclude that NATO will do nothing in response to Russian acts of war, but he at least has to weigh the risks that NATO will respond. ...

re: 65% Estate Tax Proposal - Poodlebrain
[quote]Because the money is taxed at every step - transaction, income, what have you.[/quote]No, it is not. If you buy an asset and keep it until you die, then you never pay any income tax on any appreciation in value....

re: Predict: Will Aaron Rodgers Ever Win Another Super Bowl? - Poodlebrain
It is difficult to predict how teams will manage the salary cap going forward, and that will have a huge impact on the competitiveness of teams. There is only so much money you can have tied up in a QB and fill the roster without some glaring weakness. It will take a lot of luck, or skill, in fill...

[quote]I guess a lot of folks here aren't fans of the 1st Amendment.[/quote]The right to free speech doesn't mean you get the right to have your speech ignored by the government. In fact it implies just the opposite, that government will listen to your speech and give it the proper consideration. ...

re: For Many New Medicaid Enrollees, Care Is Hard to Find, Report Says - Poodlebrain
This is a rationing program instituted by the suppliers instead of the government. Thus, it is bad rationing because the bureaucrats do not control it. The bureaucrats will want to mandate that healthcare providers must take Medicaid patients so the bureaucrats will have control over who gets trea...

re: And you thought Redskins is an offensive name - Poodlebrain
Why would they voluntarily adopt a name with Indian as part of it? That name was given by the oppressive Europeans who usurped the lands of the indigenous peoples. Even calling themselves Native American Gaming Association would be using a name given by Europeans. What name could they adopt that ...

re: St George vote not likely this year according to Lionel Rainey, the Third - Poodlebrain
I heard a pro-St. George commercial on the radio during lunch hour today. The ad claimed they were still looking for 2,000 more signatures. It seems to me that the St. George organizers are not confident that their 18,000 claimed signatures are good signatures. Otherwise they would have submitt...

re: Paid Maternity Leave - Arguments Against - Poodlebrain
It should be something determined by the employer and employee for their mutual benefits. It should not be mandated solely for the benefit of the employee. Would the employee owe restitution if she decides not to return to work for the employer at the end of the paid leave?...

re: Holder and the Senate race - Poodlebrain
I never expected the Senate to take up the matter until after the election. Doing so would be the ultimate self-inflicted October Surprise for Democrats up for re-election. If Democrats retain control of the Senate, then it is likely they will confirm whomever Obama names as a recess appointee s...

re: 1st Infantry Division HQ to Iraq - Poodlebrain
A division commander's primary responsibility is to command the division. How will that be achieved if the commander has to devote his time to whatever the mission is in Iraq? How can the CG be accountable for shite that happens in CONUS if he isn't around to supervise the elements of his command? ...

re: Russian, look what they want now. - Poodlebrain
Where does BREC plan on putting these walking/biking trails? If they are to be built within existing parks, then $72 million sounds outlandish.
