    If the party creating a lawsuit was not harmed, he is generally considered to have no standing, and the suit is thrown out. I'm not sure how they will convince a judge that they were harmed by the president doing something they wanted him to do (slowing the requirement that companies comply with Obamacare insurance requirements). We'll see how it works out.

    The issue is not my posts being blocked (although that does happen once in a while). It's that the recent changes make it more difficult to read posts that people (like you) make. I wonder if these changes will make some people (like you) who make posts here to reconsider their posting efforts simply because fewer people are reading them.

    So what is your hand up, as you send many of them back to certain death by the criminal gangs they are fleeing from. That's why the vast majority of those women and children came knocking at the door.

    Perhaps the fact that the current GOP never does what they say they are going to do, to say nothing about not doing anything that really needs to get done, either.

  • Has anyone mentioned to Yahoo! that these recent changes are awful. It's now impossible to find the threads that have recently been updated, or who has updated then with new posts.

    Lang, i think you are closer to the truth than many may think. But there will also be more time foe for recreation and creative work: music, art, fishing, sports, videos, books, travel, etc. But, that's only if everyone continues to share in the productive, profitable parts of he economy, even if they are not physically work in it.

    I haven't been to a movie theater for years, so that's probably why I haven't seen anything about it.

    That's a big problem. What do we do to fix it?

    - Few are now needed to answer to phone now. Computers provide the answers that most customers want.
    - Fewer peoepl are needed to stand behind the counter to sell stuff now. The sales counter for many is now a web page.
    - No one is needed to paint or bolt on fenders now. That's all done by robots now.
    - And soon even more will be replaced by various forms of automation, including truck drivers, paralegals, cooks, highway construction and repair, taxi drivers, janitors, bank tellers, mail carriers, security guards, teachers, roofers, window washers, more sales clerks, more factory workers, loan offices, and more.

    What do we do to address these changes that are coming along faster and faster?

    The fallacy of the Obama recovery

    For some reason, my second response addressing your other points got deleted by y! I don't have time to type the whole thing again, but here's part of t, which addresses your reply.

    3. Kill Obamacare, Homeland Security, reduce the IRS - downsize government.

    Down sizing the IRS would help us a lot. As long as we can keep the tax laws complicated, and the IRS small, we can save a lot of money in our tax returns.They'll not even get looked at in most cases. Our lawyers can easily keep our tax costs down. Killing Homeland Security would be great! HS does a few thigh, with a mixed blessing for us. Their cybesecurity would add to our costs defending out internet presence. We might hire some network specialists to help protect us, or we could just abandon the net and return to advertising in the Lady's home journal. Also, when an fif the HS border security is gone, then all the employees that got sent home would be back in a minute, many with friends who might even work for less than $5/hour! And if the government downsize also included getting ride of the EPA, then we could save a lot on dealing with leftover paint, degreaser, and lots of other stuff w don't want.and could easily send up our chimneys and dump on the ground somewhere.

    Global warming--the real story

    What past questionable calls and statements? The NOAA National Weather Service forecasts are the best ones around. They are what farmers, pilots, and many others depend on. They've got the best historical data, the best tools, and the best forecasts around. Beliefs never trump real data. Never.

    That's a fine list of possibilities, Springer. now let's see what might happen if they were to occur. Consider what might happen to our company, VT-Springer, Inc. our conglomerate that delivers products and services in a number of areas. And cetainly our three primary goals are these:
    1. Create big profits.
    2. Reduce costs.
    3. Make sure we make big profits (did I mention that already?)

    1. Deport all illegal aliens and their families - we don't need to the costs of supporting them
    Our north Carolina child care services division would have a big problem. Might be a problem in the meat packing plants, and the tomato farms, too. We'd lose all our $5/hour workers. Do you think you can find enough who want to do their jobs at $5/hour? Don't worry, it would only be part time. (But see below, for a possible solution).

    2. Require workfare not welfare it's a helping hand - not how to make a living.
    How would that work? More than half of all welfare recipients are on welfare for less than 12 months. How would that work for the housewife with 3 kids, who's husband is in the hospital being treated for cancer? Or for the PFC's wife at home with 2 kids while he is overseas. Or teh farm worker who is let go in January and February,and rehired when the growing season begins again. What workfare jobs would you offer/require for these people? But, maybe we can find a way to hire them in our factories, meat packing plants, or child care or retail divisions for very low pay, and let the government give them health care, and food stamps.

    Springer, I agree. I don't think that a few millionaires will do much. Especially foreign millionaires. We've already got plenty of millionaires here - 9.6 million of them at the last count. What Detroit really needs are some good businesses to replace the auto industry. Over the past few decades, the auto industry in Michigan has lost at least 80% of it's jobs, due to automation, and competition from other auto companies. Bringing in some of today's new growth industries would do more for Detroit, than anything else. And there are lots of growth industries to chose from: 3D printing, materials, including carbon fibers, and new structural plastics, CAD systems, solar power, electric power line technologies and construction, cloud computing, scientific & technical consulting, robotics, and some more. There is already considerable expertise in the auto industry in some of these growth areas. A few spin-offs might be the best thing to happen to Detroit now!

    So, springer, what would you do to fix the economy?

    What would you do to give everyone good high paying jobs?

    What would you do to to keep prices flat, or to even bring them down?

    What would you do to increase the demand for new houses?

    What would you do to sell all the empty houses in Detroit (and elsewhere), and fill them with happy, well paid families?

    Please let us know exactly what you would to fix all these problems.

    Yes, plenty of documented cases, -- and 1,035 deaths at the last count a day or so ago.

    Yahoo has removed my past 3 attempts to post here, I'll just say thta my post was similar to your's WH.

    Also, the population density there is a little more then 13,000 people per square mile. That's about the same as Boston. When the population is that dense, people are not human shields, but simply targets.
