<quoted text>so it is correct, just pay the fine for not having insurance and get it when you need it.
Whether you are taxed for being a free-rider or for smoking cigarettes, you are assesed a punitive tax.

So it is incorrect to call it a fine because as C J Roberts said, "it's really a tax."

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!

You're forgetting one important point, as usual. Smoking is a choice. A mandate in the form of a tax? Not so much!

The difference between and Inactive and a Deactive plane, ship, etc. it that is any Deactivate plane, ship, etc. the major components are removed or disabled.
Case in point was the WWII Victory ships which have been periodically put in "mothballs" (inactive). Sure they were dusted off for the Korean War and then the Vietnam War but in the Persian Gulf War they were in bad condition they had to be scrapped. You see, once a year the Inactive ships are suppose to be run up and every system tested. But we don't.
The USS Enterprise is being mothballed right now but it will take about three months to get it ready for sea. Now, don't ever forget it is just ONE aircraft carrier. It is a whole Carrier Task force consisting of over a dozen ships, two submarines, and an air wing (aircraft, crews, etc.) Oh, the "crew" of the USS Enterprise consisted of about 3,000 ship's crew and 1,800 aircrew. But in the whole carrier task force you need over 10,000 trained men and women.
You seem to be fixated on task forces centered around Aircraft Carriers. Destroyers and Cruisers can operate independently or in smaller task forces and they require fewer personal to operate. The primary job of Aircraft Carriers is Air Supremacy. Deny enemy air operations.

Italy and Spain are not our bases. We are allowed access to those bases under rules regarding NATO.

It would be kind of hard to use a base if a missile destroys a nuclear powered ship or a ship that has nuclear weapons on it, in the harbor.

Damn, now in Canada!

Ice wave hits houses in Canada

A tsunami of ice has slammed into a lakeside community in Canada, crushing several houses.

The wall of ice, which hit Manitoba's Ochre Beach, lasted 15 minutes, and sent locals fleeing to safety.

"They heard it before they saw it (the ice) coming up their decks," local official Clayton Watts told the Winnipeg Free Press. "Then it came right in their front windows. It was just a matter of minutes."

A booming noise alerted many people and gave them enough time to safely evacuate, Watts added.

"Fortunately, no one was hurt," he said. "We were very lucky."

A similar ice wave was reported in the US state of Minnesota.

This one has pictures.

Tsunami of ice plows into dozens of Canadian homes; no one injured in freak disaster
It took about 15 minutes for the ice floes to pour out of Manitoba’s Dauphin Lake and spill onto a couple dozen properties Friday. Homeowners were left picking up the pieces over the weekend.

The choice to be an irresponsible free-rider will result in a tax penalty. Omission can be just as much a choice as comission.

Forget India, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya and Syria. As to Iran and North Korea, hot feasible. Find some other country. In history, none of those countries (not even N. Korea, except to fight UN/US troops AFTER aggressing S. Korea) ever waged war on the US. And not likely to for so many obvious reasons.
