Externalities of Obesity

I was surprised they didn't mention them. Between insurance, medicare, and medicaid, the welfare state has made obesity (and smoking) something everyone pays for. As long as the government is on...

Re: So which is it?

True, they didn't mention government regulation on everything - just on everything they mentioned. Except abortion. Seems like feminism and socialism are synonyms to them.

Re: I-Told-You-So Edition

Never sacrificing post quantity for post quality?

And this for trying to help you and your ilk out.

37 weeks is full term, but feel free to be technically correct and sound ridiculous

Re: I-Told-You-So Edition

You're easily impressed. I think they set the bhtv record for saying "I totally agree with you!"

If they're serious about communicating their ideas, they should:

1. Think about them...

naiveté

Apparently, women are incapable of having an abortion for a bad or immoral reason. Not really a point from which you can have a discussion.

"Underpopulation and overpopulation have the same cause"

Damning With Faint Praise

The first sentence after this dingalink (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/9740?in=00:09:49) sums up my own reaction to Obama's speech, though I'd specifically say modern politician.

Who Was Obama's Speech For?

If the super delegates can swing the nomination either way, I'm not sure that pre and post-speech polls of voters are what matters. I think Mickey and Bob agree that the speech and the Rev. Wright...

Re: Ludicrous Libertarians

Re: Ludicrous Libertarians

Beat that straw man!



I'm questioning the assumption that "...selling sex for money is an unalloyed bad thing is a cultural assumption, not shared by everybody." Show me the culture where...

Ludicrous Libertarians

In the prostitution segment, Will Wilkinson and Kerry Howley cruise blissfully past the fundamental issues of prostitution. First mistake - Will frames the conservative position as a state interest...

JW FLV Media Player

The version on Blogging Heads seems to be 3.11, while the current version seems to be 3.15.
