In Topic: Hawaii's Exchange to be Shuttered

I think Free market as conservatives would have it work just as they want it to. If you can't afford the medicine, then that's the free market at work. You should have worked harder to afford the medicine when you were well. Or they should hope people are (if they choose to be) charitable and provide them with help.

Its not like the free market is inherently evil. It just trends towards monopolies and profit gains to the detriment if consumers. History has shown intelligent regulation is sometimes needed to keep it in check. Unfortunately the market buys the regulations sooooo....

The free market would've NEVER created the absurd third party payer system we have today. It's completely the result of liberal economic policies that we're in this mess and you guys can't see that more of the same only gets more of the same.

The free market denied coverage. The market causes useful drugs for deadly deseases to cost a fortune. The free market causes people to go bankrupt simply to stay alive. The free market as conservatives would have it at work.

In Topic: FBI admits no major cases cracked with Patriot Act snooping powers

This alludes to what I lovingly refer to as the "vampire fallacy" argument for the continued existence of the the Patriot Act, DHS, NSA, TSA, whatever. It goes like this:

Since the Patriot Act was signed, there hasn't been a single Al Qaeda attack on American soil. The Patriot Act must be stopping them, right?

Likewise, the day the Patriot Act was signed, I started wearing garlic on a necklace at all times. Since that day, I have not been attacked by a single vampire. The garlic must be keeping them away, right?

Elephant repellent.

Happy now? The principle still applies.

Sure if you just want to assume schools are indoctrinating children and brain washing them rather than country just natural progressing into liberal and progressive ideals. You clearly do. Hence you claims of this massive educational conspiracy.

In Topic: Global Warming, er Climate Change is a National Security Threat

I'll make it simple.

"Scientists" were wrong that the Earth was flat until other scientists proved it wasn't, but those other scientists were persecuted by the Flat Earthers.

"Scientists" are wrong about AGCC and are, once again, persecuting those who disagree with the so-called Settled Science.

The more things change the more they stay the same and everything you "know" today will be wrong tomorrow.

"Science" in those days was heavily influenced by the church. As was the threat of excommunication and heresy charges for being audacious enough to claim earth was not the center if the universe.
