re: Cowbell - New Orleans just wants you to know - BigJim
[quote]Private company. No problem with this. Don't see how anyone could have a problem with this.[/quote] There is a difference between people having a problem with them being ABLE to do this. I think almost all of this board would agree with their legal right to do so. But that doesn't not m...

re: Confederate statues should NOT have been up in the 1st place - BigJim
[quote]- Lincoln really is to blame for this post civil war with his stance of letting the leaders and generals of the CSA off the hook in an attempt at "healing" the wounds of a nation- should have tried them for treason then there would have been no glorification of these people. [/quote] "Ye...

re: President TRUMP tweets against monument removal!!! - BigJim
[quote]I would personally be ok with drawing the line at important figures in the confederacy.

re: The Hate Trump Is Getting Is Ridiculous - BigJim
[quote]What happened in Charlottesville was just as much Antifa's fault as it was the Neo NAZIs[/quote] The nazi dude drove his car into people. He made that choice. Not Antifa. It wasn't self-defense, it was lunacy. Now don't get me wrong, frick antifa. But JUST as likely to blame? No...

re: why do we vote on Tuesdays? - BigJim
[quote]But why a Tuesday in November? The answer stems from the agrarian makeup of 19th-century America. In the 1800s, most citizens worked as farmers and lived far from their polling place. Since people often traveled at least a day to vote, lawmakers needed to allow a two-day window for Election D...

[quote]OP brings up a reasonable neautral point that everyone (including me) can probably get behind. 4 of the 5 first comments immediately blame the left. Not that the left on a board of the opposite leanings wouldn't do the exact same thing (blaming the right). My opinion, everyone has gotte...

Haven't done a deep dive, but their healthcare system doesn't seem much different than ours (with the ACA). You are mandated to have insurance (check) -there is public insurance for poor people (aca subsidies and medicaid, check) -There is some sort of state level insurance pool think- (I think...
