Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

OH GOD DAMN IT IT'S SNOWING AGAIN AT 36F IN JANUARY. Yet another pile of cement to shovel off the fucking driveway. In fucking January. This time of year I should be able to clear any snowfall less than 4" with a pushbroom because this time of year we're supposed to get cold powdery snow. The cemen...

We got 5 and it was godawful spring wet cement in early January. Even with a power shovel it was a massive pita to clear my driveway and sidewalk.

I just figure it always means yeah if it's spelled "yea". I've never seen anyone who meant "yay!" with that spelling.
But as has been pointed out it is a word that is pronounced 'yay' so that's a thing.

Re: Rand Paul.....sigh.

A presumably private, cash-only Canadian hospital operating outside the system is hardly a violation of his principles. It's private, but neither cash-only nor outside the system. They're grandfathered in, so they take private and public insurance both. “This is more fake news on a story that has b...

Beware, you'll make enemies in the Senate
I will accept the amendment that 'yea' means 'aye' or 'yes' in voting contexts and that I dislike its use in all other contexts. It's the they'retheretheir of y-words that aren't your/you're.

Re: Libertarian Diskanen

I think eliminating employer-provided coverage would go a long way toward doing that. People will be much more aware of the cost/service curve when they have to shop for themselves. And I suspect that doctors would offer cash discounts for routine procedures, up to the point where the only time you...

Re: Petty annoyances

Kind of? The flexibility in trained staff isn’t adequate for variability in call volumes in many cases. I might buy that if I didn't get that message every friggin' time. When you have millions of customers, the load is statistically very predictable. They didn't say higher-than-predicted call volu...

Re: Libertarian Diskanen

I've lost patience with the "taxation is theft" true believers. I'm convinced they're sincere about it though. They have a consistent anarcho-capitalist vision of libertopia. I'm a big fan of the invisible hand, wisdom of crowds, and even a common law approach to judicial theory, but the whole anar...

Re: Libertarian Diskanen

I see standard libertarianism as a means for approaching/analyzing policy questions. It's a series of questions to ask of a political question. "Is this a problem?" "Is it a bad enough problem for government to attempt to solve it?" "What is the least interventionist method for government to use in ...
