I don't think we in America ever treated our women the way Muslims treat their women.
If someone in America 200 years ago took his 18 y/o daughter to the village square and slit her throat because she dishonored her family, would the people applaud or hang the father?
Ever heard of the Salem witch trials and the more than 50 women who perished? Some hanged, others dying in prison?

I was just painting a rhetorical picture of how our women were treated more than 70 years ago. We each have our way of treating and mistreating minorities, Rogue, whether they be coloured, minorities, women, immigrants etc. I agree that some Arabs, particularly the Saudis, treat their women like dirt. I don't think we treated them the same way the last 200 years. But when you realise how we treated them during the inquisition, how women could not even be artists or work for fear of being killed (Brueggels's wife was a renowned miniature artist in the 16th century but had to destroy all of her paintings lest she be burned at the state for exercising a man's profession Fast forward when our stewardesses were fired if they married or turned 30, and I don't know how it worked in the US, but a woman teacher or civil servant here in Canada was immediately fired if she married. I don't think we can sermon a whole lot of people. But yes, at the present time, the Moslem religion and particularly Saudi Arabia both treat their adherents , in general, not all, like cattle.

Now I do have some pleasures that a city doesn't have, my own swimming hole and a cold spring for my beer and drinking/cooking water, don't like my beer too cold it spoils the taste.
Yep, if I didn't have obligations here I would disappear completely.
I think that's great. Every human being needs that kind of experience, connecting with nature once in a while. But you have to nourish your mind also and that alone won't do it. Important to see and feel other people, civilizations, cultures, appreciate not that we are better or worse than other nations, no, but that we are all of us DIFFERENT. Vive la différence. It's how we learn, it's how travel is one big school.

$1,200 a year is much cheaper than $8,000-$10,000 and that will be going-up.
Me, I don't have to worry about Obama Care, at this time.
If you are not insured, you are a free-rider and a tax penalty is assessed. That's not a play on words. You may call it a fine if you want to, but it's really a tax.(That means it's not really a fine.)

2009 Sewage Issues
During Dubai's economic boom in 2009 the city's rapid growth meant that it was stretching its existing sewage treatment infrastructure to its limits. Sewage from areas of Dubai not connected to the municipal piped network at the time was collected daily from thousands of septic tanks across the city and driven by tankers to the city's only sewage treatment plant at Al-Awir. Because of the long queues and delays, some tanker drivers resorted to illegally dumping the effluent into storm drains or behind dunes in the desert resulting in much controversy. The result of sewage dumped into storm drains was that it flowed directly into the Persian Gulf, near to the city's prime swimming beaches. Doctors warned that tourists using the beaches ran the risk of contracting serious illnesses like typhoid and hepatitis.
Dubai's municipality says that it is committed to trying to catch the culprits and has imposed fines of up to $25,000 as well as threatening to confiscate tankers if dumping persists. The municipality maintains that test results show samples of the water are "within the standard".
As of September 2009, these queues and illegal dumping are no longer reported to be a problem.

No, more like what Boston was doing until a few years ago when they put a large sewer pipe way out into the ocean. Sewage will be dispersed into the water and food chain but garbage that contains plastic, etc. will float around on the surface and can not, we hope, be eaten by sea animals.
Ah Jacques, Do you ever remember taking a test where the give you a round peg and you have to put it in one of three hole. One square, another triangular and then one round. Which hole did you try first?
Are you arguing? I must conclude that you agree with me by adding Boston to New York. Dubai cannot be justified of course, but the amount of garbage they have to dispose of pales in comparison to big N. American cities AND , truth be told, Dubai's only been doing it in smaller portions for what, the last 25 years?

What's that last paragraph for? Seems to me it fits you to a "T", by confirming what I wrote and bringing in Boston to the equation.

If it's any consolation, our city of Victoria on Vancouver Island, probably one of the prettiest cities In N. America, has been for years dumping ALL , 100% of its sewage into the straits of Georgia and Juan de Fuca, to the point of polluting the waters as far south as Port Angeles and Seattle. Scandalous.

Fruit flies like a banana, right over Dufus Dale's head.

You are assessed a tax penalty for being a free-rider.

The point was that a sin tax is not a fine, it's a tax. Paying a tax does not mean you are necessarily a law breaker. Capisce?

Because so-called "sin taxes" are levied on purchases, that does not mean all taxes and tax penalties require a purchase. Duh!

Two points, the Salem Witch Trials were in 1692, more than 300 years ago. Next, they were only in Salem, MA and were not indicative of the other 13 Colonies. And there was no Catholic Inquisition if America!
Compared to the way most Muslim women are treated in Arabian countries, American women in 1776 were treated far better.
Oh, in Amish communities if a woman does not comply, she gets .... shunned!

Now if you are saying that Roberts is saying that tax means the burden of the Constitution, then this isn't correct either, because a fine as the bill was written is a penalty for not obeying a law, so a Roberts has stated him position, each citizen of the US is a law breaker.
Now are all taxes fines, or all fines taxes. Now if all fines are taxes, then they are deductible, on the other hand, if all taxes are fines we are all law breakers! Now as Roberts has plainly stayed, we are a nation of criminals.

Kagan: The nature of the representation you made, that the only consequence is the penalty, suppose a person does not purchase insurance, a person who is obligated to do so under the statute doesn't do it, pays the penalty instead, and that person finds herself in a position where she is asked the question, have you ever violated any federal law, would that person have violated a federal law?
Verrilli: No. Our position is that person should give the answer "no."
Kagan: And that's because—
Verrilli: That if they don't pay the tax, they violated a federal law.
Kagan: But as long as they pay the penalty—
Verrilli: If they pay the tax, then they are in compliance with the law.
Justice Stephen Breyer: Why do you keep saying tax?
Verrilli: If they pay the tax penalty, they're in compliance with the law.
Breyer: Thank you.
Verrilli: Thank you, Justice Breyer.
Breyer: The penalty.
