re: Conservative hack site USA Today: "contrary to goals, ER usage rises under ACA" - JT
[quote]The only way to fix this ER problem is to have less people seen by the real ER docs. And that happens when you redirect them somewhere else.[/quote] Getting EMTALA fixed is political suicide. We are stuck with it forever. Theoretically you could get around it if your hospital could s...

re: Louisiana has highest percentage of people that stayed in the area - JT
IMO, this is due to the strong Cajun tradition of stressing the importance of family combined with many not having the resources to move or liking the outdoor activities too much to leave them behind. Most of my family lives within a 20 mile circle and it's always been that way. The few of us th...

re: The last hurrah of tea partyers and social conservatives? - JT
For many, political inclination change over time. Millenials (hard as it may be to believe) are people too. Assuming some of them eventually are able to find jobs, they won't like tax increases any better overall than the working people of today....

re: Will the National Debt sink America-eventually? - JT
I am not an economist, but the way I see it is that we are doing better than Europe currently and probably for the next several years. If we do reach a point where we have to cut military spending drastically (likely in the next 10-20 years imo) then we again gain an advantage over Europe as they...

re: Does anyone else believe we'll see a 2QB system in 2015? - JT
I don't think so. The basic skill sets of the two are not really different enough to offer distinct advantages in scheme by having one or the other in. I would say Harris appears more athletic, but if that has not been enough to propel him to the top, there must be reasons. Whoever Miles sees a...

re: What are your thoughts on immigration reform? How do you solve the problem? - JT
1. Secure the border. Yes, build the wall, it's not perfect by itself, but it's a start. 2. Repeal the patriot act. Turn the NSA into the BSA. 3. Huge fines and criminal penalties for hiring illegals. 4. Announce the new fines and penalties for hiring illegals while building the wall so that ev...

re: We would be a better society without welfare - JT
That ship has sailed. Even if you could turn back the clock to nullify women's suffrage to reduce the level of sympathy for those who rely on the social safety net, our friends in the media would make it their mission in life to saturate our awareness with pictures of skinny dirty children (even ...

re: Study Finds American Millennials To Be Some Of The World's Least Skilled People - JT
This is my take. I was born in '72. People are merely products of their times. There is no vast conspiracy of entire generations of people to be better or worse than previous generations. People are just people. The boomers came of age in a time when television speeded changing perception...

re: Long Term, Will a Basic Income Become Necessary - JT
[quote]No, I don't think value will be removed from the world. If anything net value will increase as robots create material wealth for us that we never could.[/quote] I agree that the cost of labor for many things will go down and if we are able to automate the finding of new streams of both bas...

re: Long Term, Will a Basic Income Become Necessary - JT
[quote]The owners of the machines will be insanely wealthy[/quote] Maybe you are right, but if there are enough "robot owners" in competition they might not make as much profit as you seem to favor. When something becomes more abundant, the value eventually decreases. [quote]It's just naive to...

re: Long Term, Will a Basic Income Become Necessary - JT
[quote]From the wealth that automation and robots create.[/quote] But isn't wealth a result of value to society? What value is labor if it is handled by machines who can work basically 24 hours a day and take care of it at very low cost? There are competing ideas here. One the one ha...

re: Long Term, Will a Basic Income Become Necessary - JT
Suppose a basic income is instituted. Where will the money come from if no one is working? I don't think we will be able to tax the robots. Googling basic income and reviewing several websites, I see a lot of support and enthusiasm for basic income, but not much in the way of explanation of...

re: What can republicans do to get back to their great success in the 1980s? - JT
Not much is necessary. They just have to avoid big screw ups. Reagan (not without his faults ie deficit spending) hit it out of the park in many ways, but he was lucky in a sense the he had Carter tee things up for him by doing so horribly that the next guy was going to look better no matter wha...
