Sure I did. I LIKE broccoli. You would tell Albert Einstein he was uninformed, if he didn't agree with your politics.


To be clear, you say you read the transcript and yet you still asked your original question. Hmmm...OK, well ask your question again and let's see how the Supremes answered it. Wait, don't waste your time, Richard covered it really well. I can't think of anything to add. It's really not a question of my politics, it's a question of Constitutionality and from all observations your guy Obama is about to hit the proverbial wall. Strange you should mention Einstein as he was the one who said, "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." Kind of describes Obama's administration don't you think. Sorry, I just realized I gave you another opportunity to open another thread. I'd hate to be accused of switching topics.

Substitute "insurance companies" for "state" as the last word, and you have the rationale for federal regulation of health insurance.

Agreed. I have long been uncomfortable with the indirect control of policy through control of the money.

Richard S. wrote:Agnes caused nearly 3 billion in damages and at the time was considered the worst natural disaster the US had ever seen, if that levee wasn't in place the costs would have been astronomical.
These projects should be done locally but until the federal government gets their hands out of everyone pockets and let the states and local governments who are better equipped to determine what will benefit them it won't be possible.

Which puts us back where we started 60 or 80 years ago. Local resources were not enough, so federal funds were sought, then local corruption tended to absorb the federal funds, so more federal control was instituted, more federal taxes were levied, and here we are! Yuck! :sick:
