Comment You are the one with the fantasy (Score 1) 345

In your fantasy world the Republicans united to destroy Obamacare.

You are the one with the real fantasy, where there are Republicans and Democrats. If that were true, this bill would have passed.

In te real world, there are Democrats (increasingly irrelevant), Republicans, and Trump supporters. Trump is neither Democrat nor Republican.

So basically, any forward motion now on anything is a compromise between Republicans and Trump supporters. The bill they had arranged was never going to pass because it had the support really of only Republicans.

Half of the cabinet lied to Congress during confirmation

And you say *I'm* the one with the fantasy? Riiiiiight.

Enjoy your eight years of being utterly mystified why anything happens the way it does! I'll let you have the last word because Democrats will argue for days without saying anything of value or truth. You can learn rom the discussion, but I know you will not.

Comment Not a Republican defeat (Score 0, Troll) 345

What you just witnessed what not a Republican defeat. It was the true death of Obamacare. The bill proposed just patched up a few things about Obamacare, not what people were asking for and not enough to save it.

People are acting like it's a problem for Trump or anyone when in fact Trump was the one with the most to gain by the bills defeat - because it essentially thrusts Paul Ryan out of power in the senate.

Later on this summer you'll see an actual repeal of Obamacare, and that will pass nicely... even more nicely after the Democrats short-sightedly force the Senate to drop the bits of filibuster still remaining. If they'll filibuster someone like Gorsuch, the Demcrats proof to the public they are utterly unreliable to govern at all, and can simply be bypassed without undue fuss.

Some businesses might...but with HIPAA laws, banking laws and lawyers, the security of "in the cloud" no matter how secure, might put some people off on this.

It doesn't matter how secure it is, it matters how secure the auditors say it is. A startup will do quite poorly by this measure, while the companies with years of good lobbying will have arranged things so that it's fine.

Yeah, my old Commodore 64 had a blinking cursor, and it somehow managed that remarkable feat with an 8-bit 6510 CPU running at 1MHz!!!

Behold the power of Javascript! It gives a modern PC with 8-16 GHz of total CPU ... less actualy processing power than a Commodore 64.

Well done JS engine guys. Well done.
