We don't because it wasn't much of an argument. Like the deficit/bonds discussion, you said something dumb, everyone else laughed at you, life went on.

I brought it up as an example for tec. Sometimes people say things that they think are true (our health premiums are up because of Obamacare; if the government sold more treasury bonds it could eliminate the deficit). They aren't necessarily lying. They could just be clueless.

You again are attempting to divert the conversation when it leads you to an uncomfortable area.

In your opinion, which you seem to have so many of that you are more than happy to share with and enlighten us simpletons, are businesses who blame the ACA for reduced/eliminated benefits, or for the imposition of spousal surcharges, lying?

Asked and answered. See post above yours.

So businesses who say that are clueless?  Is that your answer?

Do you understand that this is the internet?  That, if you don't know, you can look stuff up before commenting?   Wouldn't most people do that?

Anyway, that beside the point.   Your behavior is abnormal.   You have a switch that clicks every Friday.  You're especially unreasonable and argumentative. If no one will argue a current issue, you will dig deep to find something from the past.  I asked if it was because you dreaded spending more than an hour with your family on the weekends as you're forced to do during the week.  You refused to answer, however, I noticed you spent a considerable amount of time arguing, on the internet, last weekend.    I seriously suspect you have a mental issue and I am genuinely concerned for the safety of your family.   Please, I implore you, seek professional help.

I imagine some are as clueless as mike talking about economics or baseball. Others, I'm guessing, are using it as a convenient excuse to pass along costs, knowing they won't be questioned by people who are so uninformed that they, for example, can't say for certain whether or not the issuance of treasury bonds by the US government reduces the deficit.

Seek help before you harm your family.

A time will come when you don't have your "outlet".    Maybe the internet is down.  Maybe no one will argue with you on Friday.    That's when your family will be at risk because you won't have your outlet.   Take action.   Seek help before you do something harmful to your innocent wife and child.

That's all you got?
11/22/2013 11:19 AM
Do you think your behavior is normal?   Serious question.

Do you think your behavior is normal?

Do you recognize that you got from a 4/5 M-T to about 11 on Friday?    Surely you do.

OK.

"Businesses who blame the ACA for reducing or eliminating healthcare benefits to employees are either lying or clueless".

Got it.

Do you disagree?

Yes, I do.

My wife works for a small business in which the owner of the company covers 100% of the healthcare benefits for his full time employees.

One of my wife's responsibilities is to work as the liason between her company and the insurer that provides their healthcare benefits.  She hasn't gone into specific details with me, but she has indicated that Obamacare has introduced a significant cost increase to what her boss now has to pay for coverage,

My wife has practically no interest in politics or political rhetoric, so this is certainly not "spin" on her part.  I don't believe my wife is clueless.  And I don't believe my wife is a liar. 

Are you saying that she is one of those?
