    What do you mean, "more overhead?" I would think there would be less overhead from a free market administrative standpoint.

    But I agree the medicare advantage plans are good. Not familiar with...

    Horseshit. There is nothing extreme about expecting a gun owner to know how to accurately fire their weapon. If you're not aiming for center mass then what the fuck are you aiming at? A head shot?...

    You know you are full of shit on this. I don't know why you keep posting this garbage - you are part of the problem with the misinformation.

    Unfortunately, this would probably be a case of jumping from the frying pan into the fire.
  6. Which has nothing to do with the issue at hand.

    There is nothing wrong nor irrational to move to raise the level of proficiency of most law enforcement people. In fact, it appears to be common sense.[/QUOTE]

  7. A standard has been provided--he's expecting sky...

    Seeing a threshold hasn’t been provided, that statement is as bullshit as the analogy. Which is why you need to use a stupid analogy in the first place as a smokescreen to justify access to weapons...
  8. Manufacturing jobs generally require less skill...

    Manufacturing jobs generally require less skill now, not more. The skilled jobs aren't manufacturing jobs.



    You're imagining the workers are more productive.

    Which direction are the shipping containers full of would-be illegal immigrants going?[/QUOTE]

    Yup. This is the ultimate measure.
  11. What relief work are you talking about? China...

    In the immediate assumption that something must be fishy about these data, it can't be the case that China has been consistently on a path of eradicating poverty at home and in its relief work in...

    Our homeless choose homelessness over getting treatment for their mental illnesses. And I've seen homelessness in Shanghai.

    And you certainly do see garbage on the streets in China, it's just...

    Without pointing out all the rationale by other posters of this thread, my gut feeling (having visited China) is that this is true. On average the Chinese are better off than the...

    No... I didn't mention Indy Car at all. I mentioned competency and expecting people only be allowed access to more dangerous or difficult to use weapons once proving competency with a lesser...
  15. I am objecting to the level of proficiency being...

    You are claiming that it is a bad idea for gun owners to be proficient in the use of guns? One would think it is common sense that gun owners be proficient in the use of such dangerous...

    Well, it's a long term investment, if you are woman at 25 with money, by the age of 45 you will have US passport and will be able to retire in Florida. Alternative is $800K for investor green card,...

    That's a tiny, tiny fraction of them--you're proposing to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    There is no way His Flatulence is Satan, Satan is far more intelligent than he is. Satan's thrall, perhaps, but not Satan.

    SARS had about a 15% fatality rate. Had the world not stomped on it SARS would have been a major killer. We don't know the fatality rate for Wuhan-Corona isn't known yet but it's obviously...
