Re: Libertarian Diskanen

On some level, I suppose, we'll have to accept that healthcare in general is going to run at an overall loss; I'm snipping out this part because I think this is an assumption I often see being made by people and think it's kind of odd. Morally speaking that would mean forever plundering the next ge...

How do you move the shorts to the side?
They have like a two-inch inseam, it's basically like if it were underpants.

Re: Silicon Valley Disrupts Its Own Ass

I really want a bit more precision about what exactly they did. The NYT article is apparently lumping "allowed third-party client access to Facebook services" in with everything else, which makes it hard to figure out what they actually did. (As in, I would be very upset if Pidgin were _not_ allowe...

Re: Portable Techno-Capitalism

It means "caught on". And there are still specials to be had, like Verizon offering a free Google Pixel 3... if you put it on a new line. The deal to open a new contract is going to be significantly better. But the old "subsidized phone" wireless deals were just shifting the price from paid up fron...

I thought I was being generous with 1000x since we're comparing a stylized, realist 70s movie about a journey through three boroughs of actual New York with an 80s movie shot in East St Louis about a post-apocalyptic Manhattan.

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

I get that but compared to other concepts in play? It’s a secondary concern at best. Someone has to provide the service. If it’s single payer or some other massive expansion of Medicare am I supposed to act like that’s not political force rewarding interested parties? No. But I mean, this is only a...

Re: There must be a pony in here somewhere.

But - ok. Let’s set aside the idea of a purchase. Provision of a service. Why is it worse in any effective way to impose a penalty for non purchase through private providers than it is to impose a tax to supply the same from the government? Isn’t the latter less liberal in most dimensions? Because ...

Re: Inequality

The thing I don’t understand about the relocation story, still, is that you don’t make the same money in a cheap place. I mean I get the part about moving from a rural area with no jobs to a city. I just don’t get the part about leaving large cities for smaller ones as if it’s just a cost of living ...

Fans do not care. There is zero evidence that fans care more about this than domestic abuse, dog fighting or being an accessory to a double murder. Well clearly the owner's think they do care.
