SEC Rant
What if Bielema's "system" continues to be a disaster in the SEC? - HailHailtoMichigan!
His offensive system of a big, fat running back getting 50 carries a game behind a big, fat offensive line worked in the Big ten because that conference is plagued by slow, non-agile defenses that did not cause the "big uglies" any trouble. SEC defenses, while still being big, have that agility and ...

re: The thing that scares me the most about Episode VII, VIII, and IX - HailHailtoMichigan!
abellsujr, it's more because of the fact that the entire story, through six episodes, was constructed, and ended, so beautifully (with the exception of the first two episodes). The giant weight of grand expectations will a death sentence. The movies may very ell be good based on their own, but when ...

re: The thing that scares me the most about Episode VII, VIII, and IX - HailHailtoMichigan!
The music is going to be the best thing about the next three movies, in my opinion. When has John Williams ever screwed up? He's the best in the business. My big worry is that his grand finale will be tainted by the movies themselves. I have already accepted that these next installments are goin...

re: What happened when this woman drove a Mercedes to pick up food stamps - HailHailtoMichigan!
Is this article claiming that food stamps are necessary? I tend to have a positive outlook on humanity, and believe in all my heart that this lady would have been helped whether or not the government was there. Besides, food stamp users are not, and never have been, predominantly people who were...

re: Marriage Equality Argument - Pretty good point - HailHailtoMichigan!
The underlying assumptions have led to sinister government policies. For a long time in this nation, slaves were not defined as "people", which led to the appalling argument that slavery was not a denial of rights. For a long time in this nation, women were not defined as "voters", which led...

re: Marriage Equality Argument - Pretty good point - HailHailtoMichigan!
Anderson employs a very similar argument that people did when slaves were claiming they were being denied rights. Just substitute "personhood" with "marriage". "Well Mr. Slave, you are not being denied rights because you are not a person". Or woman "Well Mrs. Suffragette, you are not bein...

re: So, let's revisit that "literal text" approach to deciding cases, shall we? - HailHailtoMichigan!
Rex, so you think it is a violation of the 14h amendment that only people in certain states are eligible for premium subsidies? Isn't that an indictment of the ACA itself, for if we are to believe Gruber, then only states are allowed to administer subsidies, as that would entice states to set up the...

What would the homeless rate be if America did not have section8? - HailHailtoMichigan!
So about a year ago, low income housing for people eligible for section 8 was built in my area. There was a bit of protest, as the region is already overcrowded, and it would probably "taint" a really nice golf club that is right next to it. Already, I have noticed a general decline in the area ...

Thomas Sowell often said that if we refer to hiring and being hired as "buying labor" and "selling labor", minimum wage would not be as popular, as people would see it as just another lousy price control. That's exactly what it is, though. A price control on the COMMODITY of labor. ...
