I can't help but view this the same way I view minimum wage. I don't think anyone should have to work for less than $10/hr, and I don't think anyone should have to live in a 100 square foot space. And before you cry, "but you don't have to live there if you don't want to!" I say that it's a matter of shaping the city environment. NYC has shitty, tiny places to live because everything in that city is already dense. Trying to create density by building tiny tiny apartments gets it backwards
commented on Congress Calls Apple a Huge Tax Cheat
Congress is preparing to grant Apple and others a major repatriation holiday, and they have to feign outrage before they do it. Since they can legally trade on insider information, I suspect many lawmakers will buy a ton of stock, then let Apple repatriate their cash at 5%

We need to put fluoride in the water, but not medical grade fluoride. No, it should come from industrial waste from the phosphate industry, and if everyone drinks this, it will cancel out all the sugar we eat and no one will have to go to the dentist anymore. And dentists, who care more about teeth than their business, support this practice because it's so effective.
I'll never understand why people think fluoride in the water is a good idea, let alone necessary for public health.
