that would be the "rainbowiest"
Or hoard it for the rainy day that will never come because they can lobby for government handouts far better than the for-profits simply because the are non-profits and "profits" are evil in our society now.
Meanwhile the not-for-profit ones continue to grow their endowments unchecked but that isn't considered "profit".
Uh, liberals have been very much at the forefront of this risk aversion. Liberals dreamed up the CPSC and use it to remove all manner of "danger" from our lives. Trial lawyers donate almost exclusively to liberal politicians and their main source of income is lawsuits claiming that not enough was done to remove risk.
Not only do we have to respect her life choices, we need to make sure that once she does choose to go back to work, she starts off with pay not equal to where it was when she left but equal to where she would be had she not left and continued to receive COLAs and promotions, etc. Or are you really stupid enough to believe that the woman sitting next to you doing the same work as you at the same level as you who has never had children and worked reduced hours and taken maternity leave, etc. really is being paid less than you?
Or you can look at the reverse... Those of us having children are the only ones helping you have all the social welfare programs (pensions and Social Security, etc.) after you stop working.
So, yes, I am getting a raw deal because I am raising kids that will contribute to me and to you and you are getting a free ride by having no kids.
"These idiot authoritarians need to be taught that their idiocy KILLS American business." What do you think Obama meant when he said that he "wants to fundamentally change American society?"
Now don't go getting all technical and pointing out history and such. Actual facts often destroy the liberal narrative.
Yeah, because all those things that need automating in a home are never connected to a power source and all those things doing the automating cannot possibly draw any power from the lines they are installed to switch on and off.
But most delivery drivers do not have special sections of the tax code devoted to their retirement benefits either. The line between federal employee and private employee is quite blurred at times with railroad employees.
Why did you leave out Salt Lake City, UT and Zurich, Basel, Bern, St. Gallen, Luzern, Geneva and Lausanne, Switzerland and probably every other major city in Europe for having "light rail systems run in the street parallel with cars." That is probably a more common situation that having subway or elevated rails.
I have no use for Amtrak.
Why the hell should Amtrak receive any federal funding if it is a private corporation as people claim. Amtrak should raise their rates enough to operate in the black like all true private transportation companies are eventually forced to do or cease operations.
Nascar Race? You mean because they "raise" the flag and sing the National Anthem before the race and usually launch fireworks after it? Nearly every sporting event in the US starts with raising the flag and singing the National Anthem. I've been told Toronto (Ontario, Canada) Blue Jays (Major League Baseball) games are preceded by two national anthems. I see a few Canadian flags here in Wisconsin along with some Swedish and Norwegian ones as well. Plenty of Mexican ones flying in early May. I haven't heard of anyone getting to upset by it.
"Otherwise public transportation doesn't fit into my lifestyle". See, the problem is that you are doing it backwards. If you want to be "eco-friendly" and "green" and all that other crap, you have to fit your lifestyle into "the good things."
