Well yes, there is now a circuit split but the 4th circuit one is unlikely to change position whereas there's likely to be an en banc review in the DC circuit. That, in my view, will likely lead to a reversal and no split. Stay tuned.

And this is precisely why Obama's nominees were not getting approved for the DC circuit   

Because politics? Because a sitting US President should not be accorded the privilege of appointing the positions that a US President has the right to appoint if you don't agree with him?

Yeah. Yeah. I was thinking this. I swear!

Xahar, mine was a statement of fact, not support.  I've always believed a sitting President's choice for any judge position, or Supreme Court position, be confirmed unless there is CLEAR AND OBJECTIVE reasons to vote against them.  All President's use the DC circuit to give them their way, when possible.


Who is Xahar?

Oops.  Sorry, bro.  Xahar is the only one I know with a red MD avatar, so I just thought it was him.  Smiley

You assume that it was me who reported it...

Everyone regularly sees you on Who's Online reporting posts. It's a pretty easy conclusion to draw.

I have no way of verifying, since I can't see them, but in the past week, my guess is that I've reported a total of 3 (maybe 4) posts. If I had to guess, I highly doubt my reports are a plurality of the reports over the past week.

Unless you're reporting to purposefully piss someone off, like I do to a troika of members occassionally, why, Nathan?

Various reasons (posting of PMs, personal attacks, profanity). Why does it matter if I report a post? That's what the button is there for.

Oh I'm sure Andrew, Badg, and BK are thrilled.  Carry on.

No, but it's NOT unusual for companies to make inflated claims of what you CAN make......which is about the same thing, no?

Most every company mandates direct deposit. The fact that a big company like Bushie's does not scares me.

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal.


A judicial panel in a 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to those people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov.

Direct deposit was getting too expensive for the company.

I doubt thats possible and I'm afraid Paycheck 1 or Paycheck 2 will be far less than Our Dear Friend has calculated in his head.

This place's social views are so very disconnected and insular.

Anyway, of course I do. I think it should be taxed and that that money should go towards various social initiatives.

Exactly. As soon as they figure out how to properly tax it, marijuanna, and other drugs will become legal.
