It's only a matter of time before Capitol Hill sees the opening of Bukowski Suites.

@86: You should always do your best to avoid police, unless contact is absolutely necessary. It doesn't matter how considerate or well-intentioned an officer is. He or she is almost always the most immediate threat to your liberty.

Can we please stop pretending that libertarianism means no government? Can we also please stop pretending as though these massive corporations aren't empowered by the friendly laws and subsidies their friends in government create?

I'm one of these "young invincibles" whose prior coverage through GroupHealth apparently wasn't enough. Because I'm just over 30, I wasn't allowed to keep my catastrophic-plus plan. Now I'm paying $60 more per month for a higher deductible and negligible increased preventive health. This IS a total fucking disaster for someone working in a low-paying, high-stress public interest job.

If you decide to post this next year, you might consider doing so during Chanukah.
Dec 24, 2013 Angry Sam commented on Goodbye, 60-Watt Lightbulb.
That doesn't answer the question raised by the article, though. It would be educational to see who supported this bill, and which of them received campaign money from manufacturers of compact fluorescent or LED bulbs.

To paraphrase the late Christopher Hitchens, it's a shame that there's no Hell for him to burn in.

Goldy, would you just cut to the chase and start comparing the politicians you don't like to Hitler? That would save some bandwidth.
Dec 12, 2013 Angry Sam commented on How to Argue with Assholes About the Colorado Bakery Case.
Since when does the term "assholes" apply to "otherwise level-headed people" just because they disagree with you on one issue? How old are we now? There's no way to actually convince someone else if you begin dialogue with childish ad hominems. I'm not just being a nanny here, either. It's important to try and actually change minds on stuff like this.

Anyway, @6: Constitutional rights aren't legislated by government. They're foundational to our government. But there is a decent argument that if you'd like to benefit from the system of commerce that the government administers, supports, and regulates, you have to follow laws designed to protect others who seek to do the same thing.

You're welcome for all that Medicare and Social Security money, by the way.
