"I love the part where the same guys who say lies, damn lies and statistics when the statistics go against them, are all ready to trot out a few to bolster their own arguments."



Show me one time where I disputed a legitimate stat or study, or one time where I cited an illegitimate stat or study,



-vs-



you trotting out glib tropes.



"Personally i think i might rather pay for a guy to lay around dormant, than to pay for 5000 guys to lay around on each of our, how many? 19? aircraft carriers."



Well, the people of Aceh and Phuket might feel differently.

Personally, I think MO should give you a lifetime subscription. JMO, not trying to spend other people's money...

Oooh! Oooh! Let me!



Being a former Wal-Martian (and a current employee of a subsidiary of yet another Giant Evil Corporation), I can perhaps light a candle in the dark here.



Because; these large corporations pay ~70% (sometimes more) of their worker's healthcare costs upfront, as a fringe benefit.



The worker never sees this on his paycheck, nor does he pay taxes on it (but there are Politicians with the mentality of socko out there that are trying to change that......), but it's a benefit nonetheless.



Every dollar these large corporations can reduce in indirect-costs will increase profit by roughly the same amount, and do-so without actually cutting the benefits of said-same employee (in theory).



Companies like Wal-Mart that have ~1,000,000 employees can save an assload, if they get the reforms done their way.

How about you ask a Kurd?



"I think we should've quit in 1945, when we were ahead. just my opinion."



I would have loved that, except for that pesky Stalin problem. Reality is a *****, ain't it? I'm all in favor of Europe taking the load, but, well, they couldn't even handle Serbia. Sucks to be the adult.

Funny, that's roughly what GM owes.
