Re: The Candidate (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Might I suggest Mickey go with the formulation Federal Union Bureaucratic Arbitration Regime? The acronym seems to fit better.

Re: The Joys of Rationed Healthcare

I find this to be the frightening part of the equation. Do I want the supreme competence of a federal official to be standing between my or my family's access to medicine? I don't see a way that...

Re: The Joys of Rationed Healthcare

Yes, what could be worse than prolonging life at any cost? Living wills seem to cover this sort of problem already. The reason it becomes a serious issue in a state where healthcare is a...

Re: The Joys of Rationed Healthcare

Well, in that case, why worry? We probably won't end up like Canada.

Re: The Joys of Rationed Healthcare

I'm certain that Americans are welcome to start thinking just that way. Ought they be forced to think that way by their government? I'm not sure that's a future that is all that bright, really.

Re: The Joys of Rationed Healthcare

Isn't the least unfair method of rationing the use of the market? In other words, if we rely on government to decide who benefits - i.e. rationing - there's nothing but the potential for abuse. ...

The Joys of Rationed Healthcare

So, Bob admits - rightly - that excellent, expensive, high-tech healthcare is going to have to either be rationed or otherwise severely limited. Why oh why would anyone or any company make some...

Re: Bob's unilateral withdrawal from logical argument

I'm saying that Bob asserts that Israel's unilateral withdrawal from Gaza set up radicals to take authority there and ruin any potential gains, while simultaneously arguing that we ought to have...

Bob's unilateral withdrawal from logical argument

Let's not forget - and I'm sure the bhtv community has brought this up, I'm just too lazy to read further to find out - that Bob wanted a unilateral American withdrawal from Iraq.

The Return of the Kaus

Hooray for the return of Mickey! But: the transparent attempt to reduce liberal flak by throwing the Obama sign in the background is unfortunate.

I am a bit curious as to why Bob thinks McCain...

Re: More Mickey Racism

I don't think it's any more racist than you deciding that when Mickey says "welfare" he means "blacks."

Re: Scarlett Johansson Edition

Ummm, wouldn't the "just resolution" be to obey the immigration laws from the outset? Without breaking the laws by illegally entering the US, there would be no need to justly resolve their...

Re: Scarlett Johansson Edition

We could accomplish this much faster by simply annexing Mexico as the 51st state. After all, if we've got no borders and anyone can go in or out of the country as they pleased, how would that be...

Re: Scarlett Johansson Edition

Let's get to the summary of Bob's analysis of the Obama campaign:
1) He doesn't know that much, or even think that much about foreign policy;
2) His associations - both short and long term - tend...

Re: Scarlett Johansson Edition

Interesting that Bob seems fine with a candidate that "just doesn't know that much about foreign policy." Isn't that the essence of his case that Bush is a world-threatening force? He abuses...

Re: Obama's insight into the consequences of Mickey's hate speech

This is a part of Mickey's concerns about the Reconquista, isn't it? [And since I speak Russian and read Latin (equally poorly, mind you), does that make them not foreign too?]

Speaking of...

Re: Obama's insight into the consequences of Mickey's hate speech

Mickey's a racist, and the proof is that you are sure he wouldn't hate Canadians because they're white? I see. Thanks for clarifying that.



Uh, again, here I go sounding stupid, but Spanish...

Re: Obama's insight into the consequences of Mickey's hate speech

Well, there's several angles here. First of all, I think that Jewishness and blackness are qualities that inure to one without choice [laying aside converted Jews for the moment, and since the Nazis...

Re: Obama's insight into the consequences of Mickey's hate speech

Or, here's a nutty idea. Let's build a national border! And let's defend it whether it's in a desert, a tundra, or anywhere else.

Re: Obama's insight into the consequences of Mickey's hate speech

I hate to be a stickler here, but does this really count as "racist" language? Are they not illegals?

As to his views about the Reconquista, I think those are informed by the proliferation of...

Re: Obama's insight into the consequences of Mickey's hate speech

I'm sorry to go all the way back to the beginning here, but could you dingalink or cut-and-paste some text of Mickey [or Rush, for that matter] demonstrating this "racist hatred?" I haven't heard or...

The soft Stalinism of the Wright Stuff

Is it possible to be more boring than Bob when he gets into his "objectively anti-Obama" phases? Sheesh! Mickey writes about what he wants, and this is why people read the blog. The idea that we...

Reverse Argument Edition

A great moment here (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/11042?in=00:26:20&out=27:30) when Mickey pops Bob's argument that the US violated UN law by invading Iraq. The blanket declaration that we...

Wrighting wrongs

So Mickey's wrong to associate himself with Ann Coulter because she used and "ethnic slur" [against a non-ethnic group, by this account], but Obama's okey-dokey because he only associates himself...
