Wait - The Stranger is now not blaming the police? Oh, so fickle . . .

What a weird turnaround this country has had. The government can now force you into a private relationship you have no desire for. Bizare . . .
Apr 7 dean.fuller commented on Today in Women's Pay Equity News: We're Still Fucked.
Any word in that study on women's productivity or absences as compared to men?
Apr 6 dean.fuller commented on Seattle Times Endorses Slashing Metro Buses.
Pierce County tried the "massive service cuts" blackmail also and we didn't fall for it. The buses are still running.
Apr 2 dean.fuller commented on Washington State's Slippery Rules on Logging.
You guys aren't going to blame George Bush for this one?

@2: You've never heard of political subdivisions?
Mar 31 dean.fuller commented on Oso Washington Mudslide: 8 Images That Broke My Heart Today.
I wouldn't say any of those images is particularly compelling. Was that mobile home even part of the disaster?

@34: who said anything about not regulating denials for pre-existing conditions? This is about being forced to pay someone else's expenses. A direct transfer of wealth from me to them. You're out of context.

"It is not fucking forced on us. We vote for it."

So if it's not forced on us, then if I resist by all means , nothing will happen to me? Please . . .

The whole scheme fails without the threat of force.

"was that your employer pays for employees' insurance BECAUSE they are forced to by regulatory action. "

Not before ACA they weren't. I had a policy procured through negotiation that (because of ACA) I wasn't allowed to keep, the president's promises notwithstanding. There's that Force word again. You've used it properly. Good for you. "forced to by regulatory action."

@27 "You think your employer is paying anything out of the goodness of their heart? LOL come on man, try to understand."

No, of course not. It's all negotiated. The point is, it's a voluntary relationship; me and my employer. If anything is being "taken" from me, it's only because I consent.

There is no consent when the title to some of my hard earned money is somehow transferred (by force) to another individual.

"I'm also a taker. So are you." No, I'm not a taker. Speaking strictly about medical expenses, I am not a taker. No one is paying any premium for my coverage. My employer is self-insured. Even if they weren't, or you want to describe medical self-insurance as having a "premium" component, the maker/taker argument doesn't apply to private insurance relationships, because they are voluntary.

I "make" and some of that goes to pay for people who receive publicly subsidized insurance.

Care to rephrase?
