[quote]You are an idiot. Do states that did not set up an exchange on their own have an exchange on the federal website?[/quote] So explain to me why the words "established by the state" are in the law. If it did not matter, then those words could have been omitted completely. The statement cou...

[quote]I don't see anyone on the right concerned about pollution in the ocean. I agree with you 100% though that ocean pollution, particularly plastics that don't break down, is too ignored.[/quote] I am on the right. I work in the chemical industry. I am concerned about the environment and lov...

re: Federal relief funds for Texas and Okla. - ChEgrad
It would be good if no aid was given. Should be handled privately. The U.S. Constitution does not provide for disaster aid. I'm sure if no federal aid were forthcoming the private sector would step up. Won't happen though. They'll get money. The end of the republic is near....

re: Bernie Sanders plan for free tuition / why is college so expensive? - ChEgrad
[quote]Driven up by the availability of cheap and free money. But yeah, our Ivory Towers, for all their preaching, are gorging on tuition. My total bursar's bill went from 36K to almost 45K in a four year span (tuition, room and board, and fees). I'm sure top schools are all north of 60 now. Nothing...

re: Bernie Sanders plan for free tuition / why is college so expensive? - ChEgrad
That is a great and thorough answer (copied below for convenient reference). Thank you. rehteah, can you rebut this? [quote]It's supply and demand. As the demand for a service goes up, either supply must increase to meet demand or prices must rise in order to decrease demand to a level that t...

re: Bernie Sanders plan for free tuition / why is college so expensive? - ChEgrad
[quote]College expenses are ridiculous, and if we had a plan to pay all tuition expenses, the monies spent by colleges could be regulated. [/quote] Why is taxation and regulation always the answer? In the old days, a student could pay for college by working in the summer and, maybe, part-time ...

[link=(http://onpoint.wbur.org/2015/05/21/college-students-crippling-debt)]LINK[/link] Listening to this show yesterday while driving around and I don't think they ever really talked to someone who actually knows why college costs so much. Bernie Sanders' proposed solution is for the federal gov...

[quote] No, she didn't. She voted to allow the President the discretion to wage war against Iraq... a discretion he abused.

re: Apparently, Jeb Bush wants to replace Obamacare with his Apple Watch - ChEgrad
Rex, I fail to see anything worthy of mockery in the statement you quoted. There are devices already being made for iPhones that can do tests previously costing hundreds of dollars for about $2. The watch can potentially monitor heart function and maybe warn of heart Attucks and whatnot. Many ...
