Steve can have top billing if he likes. He is surprisingly taller. I would go with the age before beauty theory on things as I am a rather good looking guy. But height is good way to determine things as Penn & Teller have proved.
here's your witting title, i was actually thinking about starting a politics II today, but calling it "for people other than pebble and steve"
i'd say use that, but i don't want to make a liar out of the thread...
As I am taller, older, and uglier I demand top billing. It should say "For people other than Steve and Pastor".
Speaking of Penn & Teller… Steve, do you have Showtime? If so have you ever watched Penn & Teller’s Bullshit? It is like a wet dream for libertarians everywhere. A couple of warnings though: they have naked breasts in every episode regardless of the topic. Also, I heard they plan on taking on the Vatican in this season.
I haven’t watched the show regularly enough, but I’ve tried to do so this year. It really is pretty damn good. I can’t say that I agree with everything they say and I do question some of the “experts” they use to argue one side or the other, but it is damn funny when they do it.
I will never argue that a group, regardless of who they are, should be investigated by the federal government for disagreeing with the government (unless it is tax exempt which specifically means they can’t discuss politics). If Humana is being shady about the information they release that is one thing. I still don’t think they should be investigated for that as well.
Returning for a moment to actual politics in today's America rather than questioning mercantilist policies of the 18th and 19th centuries and how they may have affected America's westward expansion, a topic which had nothing to do with the original discussion of free market capitalism as opposed to state controlled economic planning -
On the prior thread I posted a series of links about how the power of the Federal government is now being used to suppress dissent and potentially lead to criminal sanctions for political dissent and surprisingly there was no comment from anyone.
The Obama administration has placed a gag order on the health insurance company Humana preventing them from sending mailings out to their customers which effectively mirror the findings of the Congressional Budget Office concerning whether or not the proposed Health Care Reform bill will cut medicare benefits.
Can any of the Obama Administration supporters here explain how a gag order on political speech is a good thing [let alone Constitutional]? Can any of the supporters of the Administration explain why there is no outrage from the Left at an Administration using the power of the Federal government to suppress dissent?
So, there you go. Not much to really argue about here.
