re: Is having a bad temper an affliction or simply a lack of self control? - jmitc22 on 7/11/19 at 11:40 am

re: Let's talk about The Last of the Mohicans - jmitc22 on 7/4/19 at 9:01 pm
Such a beautifully executed movie from every standpoint: visual, score, story, historical element. I find myself watching it for a different reason every time, and I occasionally listen to the soundtrack...because I’m a nerd like that. ...

re: How is Kamala not pulling in more support? - jmitc22 on 6/20/19 at 9:47 pm
I’m not sure where you guys are getting dumb from. She asks extremely assumption-laden, agenda-driven “gotcha” questions which border on intellectually dishonest, but that’s just the hallmark of a politician, not stupidity. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Why does “Medicare for all” require the illegality of offering plans that cover same stuff - jmitc22 on 6/11/19 at 2:44 pm
[quote]SlowFlowPro[/quote] I assumed that there would be a payment opt-out if you had private insurance. I guess you are assuming somewhat the opposite: that Medicare for all would be funded and paid through the existing structure where you don’t pay a premium, it just all comes from the governme...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Why does “Medicare for all” require the illegality of offering plans that cover same stuff - jmitc22 on 6/11/19 at 1:29 pm
A plan of such a gigantic scope will only work if the risk pool is diverse enough. Basically you have to have enough healthy, low cost people paying in to offset the cost of those who require significant medical expenses. Allowing a private option would possibly lead to healthier people seeking alt...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: NCAA Basketball Rule Changes - jmitc22 on 6/5/19 at 3:09 pm
I dislike the shot clock rule. The last few minutes of a game already take long enough. This just makes it easier for teams to foul in order to draw out a game and hope for an unlikely comeback. The leading team can’t run nearly as much clock in the final few minutes. Games will be longer, shot sele...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: I've discovered our Liberal friends' mode of attack - jmitc22 on 6/5/19 at 12:16 pm
The problem isn’t that someone uses this form of argument, it’s that anyone would believe it was an appropriate form or argument in the first place. There have been studies suggesting that teaching philosophy in early elementary school is a great way to increase the students’ logical reasoning s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]I have no issue serving on a jury.[/quote] Nor should anyone. It’s an important social function.

re: Tort reform back on the table - jmitc22 on 5/22/19 at 10:42 am
Let me give you a real world example of how this has played out in other states: Florida Insurance Companies: This tort reform bill will lower health insurance premiums and the cost of healthcare by reducing lawsuits and payouts !! Florida legislators: Sounds great...let’s do it! 10 years l...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Retail employees in California are not allowed to use their own devices to help customers - jmitc22 on 5/6/19 at 11:36 am
I think you’re right, but I’m curious as to why you wouldn’t agree. If an employer allowed or required use of personal cell phones they would essentially be shifting their operating costs onto employees. If you go over your data limit, is the company going to pay you back? It’s a situation ripe for...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Malcolm Gladwell - jmitc22 on 4/8/19 at 9:16 pm
The property tax exemption aspect was the one issue he raised that I could actually follow him on and see both sides of the issue. The problem was with his other argument: that golf courses occupied space and that there weren’t enough public parks in the town (L.A. I think). A lack of parks i...

re: Malcolm Gladwell - jmitc22 on 4/6/19 at 12:15 pm
His podcasts definitely make you think. Then he ruins it at the end when he makes some conclusion that really doesn’t follow the logical path he just laid down. On the last one I listened to he blamed Winston Churchill’s friend for starvation in India...
