re: Health insurers seek hefty rate boosts - RedStickBR

re: Health insurers seek hefty rate boosts - RedStickBR
Also, let's play a game. First person to find a liberal that says, "Those damn greedy insurance companies! This is proof we need a single payer system!" wins infinite upvotes. How dare they operate at break-even when they could be operating at a loss like all good government programs! ETA: ...

re: Boycott begins: NY legislators call for ban on all non essential travel to LA - RedStickBR
Did you read the EO, Toddy? Even thinking about it from your point of view (clearly biased and unconcerned with the views of others), I find little in this that would worry me. It seems to be primarily in reference to charitable organizations (i.e. churches) to protect them from being penalized f...

re: Bernie "red" sanders wants to make college tuition 100% taxpayer funded - RedStickBR
I agree. The commoditization of bachelor's degrees will simply mean people will have to move up the education value-chain to qualify for jobs they could have qualified for with lower levels of education previously. In fact, we're already seeing that today. Scarcity is one component of value. If ...

Introspection: Has This Board Changed Your Political Beliefs? - RedStickBR
Let's face it.

Name one example of how this board has changed ...

Let's do a "put yourself in the other person's shoes" hypothetical. Here we go: I'm an LSU sociology professor (yes, I'm assuming for this purpose that sociology is a real academic field). I have numerous black students. I tweet that "black men are a problem population." Over/under on...

re: Louisiana Education: What is the most valuable product LA exports? (no cheating) - RedStickBR
That's still unclear to me. It's also unclear as to whether all of the value added down the chain is attributed to the originating state. For instance, if LA sells a widget for $100 to MS, and MS adds $50 in value before selling said improved widget to France, does the $150 value accrue to Louisiana...

re: Louisiana Education: What is the most valuable product LA exports? (no cheating) - RedStickBR
Right, but the "origin of movement" series, as it is called by the U.S. Census Bureau, refers to the "state where the export journey begins." https://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/aip/elom.html So this doesn't necessarily mean each of these exports is internationally exported from the state in ...

Louisiana Education: What is the most valuable product LA exports? (no cheating) - RedStickBR
Do you know the answer? I admittedly did not before reading this article. From what I can gather, "valuable" refers to the nominal value of exports shipped outside the state (i.e. I believe this would include shipments to other U.S. states in addition to shipments to other countries). See the an...

"Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste" - RedStickBR
Is it any surprise we're basically seeing widespread race riots now during the presidency of a man whose closest confidant maintained this kind of mindset? Obama, Jesse and Al have been stoking the flames of racial tension for years. Even if they didn't expect the camp fire to turn into a brush f...

re: Screening of American Sniper Cancelled at U. of Michigan for being anti-Muslim - RedStickBR
Judging by recent events in Paris and elsewhere, when one promotes anything viewed as anti-Islam, it's everyone else, not the Muslims, who should be afraid for their lives. Is that what they're implying here, that showing an anti-Islam film would leave the Muslims on campus with no choice but to ...
