    Single-payer health care is the cure for bad insurance.

    Nobody is suggesting that most white police are looking for excuses to murder black kids. (I say “most” because there have been a couple of notorious incidents where they clearly were. Mr. Brown isn’t one of them, though it’s close.) But it is also clear that, anecdotal evidence that somebody dredged up notwithstanding, dramatically more black kids get killed by police without having done anything whatsoever to have threatened anyone than white kids do. This isn’t because police are trying to kill them; it’s because police, like the rest of American society, have a predetermined image of black kids — especially boys — as thugs, and are automatically inclined to decide, on a knee-jerk basis, that the black boys are threatening them, when in fact no such thing is taking place. If you don’t think this is a problem just because they also occasionally have bad judgment surrounding a white kid, I suggest that you’re as much part of the problem as the police are.

    Actually, they just “found” the video of Brown PAYING for those cigars he supposedly stole.

    Unions don’t get no-bid contracts, cubefarmer — corporations do. The unions just support the people who work for those corporations. I’m all in favor of cutting out the no-bid contracts (although “always give it to the lowest bidder” has its problems too… can’t we please select for quality for a change?). But let’s get it right about who’s getting those contracts… the companies who line the pockets of the congresspeople who demand them.

    Sounds remarkably like what Kansas looks like right now — because it’s been run like a right-wing dream world for the last few years, and its economy tanked as soon as those conservative practices took effect. Funny how it always seems to do that. The theories are always about how the economy falls apart under Democratic rule, but when you look at the actual long-term data, it falls apart when the Republicans get their way instead.

    nikilpat: that would be a variant of #3.

    Doughfoot: I’m sure Cruz wants us to believe option #1. My strong suspicion is in the #3-#5 range.

    Jeff,

    The whole process of incorporation has one purpose: to put a wall of separation between the humans behind the company, and the actions and concerns of the company itself. This is why the people who won a corporation aren’t personally responsible for its debt. Now they want it to be considered identical to them… but only when it suits them; they still don’t want to be responsible for its debt. Sorry, but that doesn’t make any sense.

    There has never been a problem with signing contracts with a corporation, because that is one of the express functions that corporations were created to do. It is not a function of being human; any entity with money can engage in contracts. You are correct, however, that what a company can’t do, a union should not be able to do, but “company” and “corporation” are not identical terms, and whether a union resembles a corporation or not depends on the union. Those which are structured as corporations, with the full protection for the individuals involved against liability for the union’s actions, should be treated like corporations — that protection against liability is what should be distinguishing companies which can be treated as extensions of the humans behind them and companies which shouldn’t be. A union which does not protect its individual members against liability for the actions of the union should be treated as a group of individuals, just as a company which has not incorporated (and therefore which still offers no liability protection for the individuals behind it) should still be treated as a group of individuals. But there really ought to be some legal consistency behind the question of whether they are separating the entity from the individuals who make it, or they aren’t.

    All the evidence shows that it isn’t necessary, since in-person voter fraud is virtually nonexistent. However, I certainly see no problem with this method. If it makes you feel better, go ahead and propose it to your state’s Secretary of State (or other supervisor of elections, depending on where you live).
