re: What do you pay to get done that you can do yourself? - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote] As much as humanly possible. Unless I actively enjoy doing something, I'm probably going to pay someone to do it for less than the rate I would value my free time[/quote] I'll take a run at something because I find it interesting to know how to do things and don't like feeling helpless, ...

re: Senator Josh Hawley: $15 Minimum wage for billion dollar corporations - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]So you think libertarianism is a winning political ideology?[/quote] It doesn't appear to be for votes. While the RS and Ds have been in general cahoots for a long time, having two feet firmly planted on the gas pedal doesn't feel like "winning" either. I'm not too doomsday about it...

re: Senator Josh Hawley: $15 Minimum wage for billion dollar corporations - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]Whether we agree or not, that’s what they’re going to do. And right now the big corporations are driving what they do.[/quote] I get the allure, but adding regulation to a regulatory state only further supports its existence, which eventually gets us to the same negative consequence regard...

re: Senator Josh Hawley: $15 Minimum wage for billion dollar corporations - Teddy Ruxpin
I don't know. So we're just going to now all agree the government should be fiddling with the levers constantly? That 500 people and their corresponding bureaucrats can ever find the "right mix" of regulation. Maybe that fight has been lost but I'm never going along with it because it gets us to ...

re: Senator Josh Hawley: $15 Minimum wage for billion dollar corporations - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote] I would guess that companies like HEB grocers come close to that[/quote] Good point. I don't think a lot of people think of grocery stores but they would possibly qualify. As others have stated, I don't think this is serious legislation by him anyway. It's just to make a point about w...

re: Senator Josh Hawley: $15 Minimum wage for billion dollar corporations - Teddy Ruxpin
I think it's dumb, but also think he likely introduced it to make a point that minimum wage increases are harmful to small businesses. In that regard, that might get the message to some people. I can't imagine many billion dollar companies have many workers making less than $15 domestically. If s...

re: EU Summit ends in unanimous agreement on Vaccine Passports - Teddy Ruxpin
Goes with this board. I read a little further. It looks like it wouldn't even ban people who aren't vaccinated. I imagine the vaccine passport would allow you to skip the pre-departure PCR test many countries have instituted and/or avoid any arrival quarantines. Obviously, I'd rather see th...

re: EU Summit ends in unanimous agreement on Vaccine Passports - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]To be fair, I have traveled to a few countries where I had to be vaccinated at least 10 days before traveling there. (Yellow Fever and meningitis) I'm not sure if this is lot different[/quote] Same. Though I suppose this will be on a whole other level with how many nations may require i...

re: Moderna Develops a Vaccine to the South African COVID Variant - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]They've been able to make vaccines fast for all this time and chose not to for some political or backroom deal issue.[/quote] The COVID vaccine was made in Spring 2020. It took the regulatory process 8 months. Since the basic structure of the mRNA vaccine is figured out, it is plug and pla...

[quote]You mean the frivolous suit? Yeah. Correlation is not causation[/quote] I have a friend who does plaintiff work. While I'm sure he's biased, I do get their research which is a lot less positive than what J&J put out regarding the talc case. There's a lot of wordplay in those statemen...
