No roe v wade is not about ratification if an amendment.
I didn't need the supreme court to tell me that the 2nd is an individual right, it's quite obvious.
The issue here is not the issue, it's the authority of the
Supreme Court. You either recognize it or you don't. The test for that is when you disagree with their decision, not when you agree.

They were needed to clarify the intent of the 2nd.

Many still think it only pertains to a "well regulated
militia."

Like you, they choose not to recognize the authority of the
Court.(Though you appear to recognize it when you agree with their decision, much like a fair weather friend.)

Of course an individual in a free market can do it better and cheaper than government, no problem with services just have a problem with how they are funded, by the gun.
I don't get the "of course" part.

Medicare has the lowest cost and highest satisfaction rate of any health insurance plan.

What private company could deliver a letter across the country for less than a dollar?(note that adding 30 cents or so to the cost of mailing a letter would solve the Postal Service's fiscal ills. They should do it now. No private company can touch that price.)

It has always been an individual right the argument is purely political.

If you want to stick to interpreting, the supreme court stated that the 16th amendment gave congress no new taxing power.

Well the government has the monopoly on 1st class mail, you will never know.

Does Medicare have predetermined fixed payouts?
Is it subsidized?

That's cute but that doesn't change the facts and if you are a believer of the nation of laws you can not pick and choose laws that skirt the process.
It seems you're the one who only wants to follow CERTAIN laws that you happen to agree with.

You've seriously never heard of common law or case law. This provides us with much of the law of the land:

Common law, also known as case law or precedent, is law developed by judges through decisions of courts and similar tribunals,[1] as opposed to Civil (Codified/Continental) Law set on statutes adopted through the legislative/parliamentary process and/or regulations issued by the executive branch on base of the parliamentary statutes.

Whether an amendment is ratified or not is not up to interpretation, it either is or isn't.

That makes you the delusional one.

Much like your opposition to the income tax.

Pure posturing.

You never answered me on the gas tax.

You agree with use/consumption taxes vs income tax?(Despite their regressive nature..)

You're saying you don't recognize the authority and validity of the Supreme Court.

I will remind you of this next time you cite them as an authority.

You can't be a fair weather American.

No private company can match that.

To quite the wise FR

I think he should be investigated.

And maybe audited too.

You either agree with the system or not if you are going to enforce law you have to do so fully.

The 16th amendment was not properly ratified, as per the US constitution, that is not up for interpreting.

One over the other but they would have to get rid of income tax first, and then you have the problem of bureaucracies.

Let me rephrase, a consumption tax at retail not one at every stage of the creating of a product, that is what is being proposed.
And you can't trust politicians to get rid of income tax.

The irs should be abolished.

That's not answering the question.

Is it subsidized
are the prices fixed?

I would hope they wouldnt waste their resources auditing a small time thief like him

But I am sure they are already tracking him, probably thru his cell phone, and possibly through the media jack in his PC as well, and definitely through his participation in Topix. Dont think for a minute any of us are invisible - our URLs are available to anyone with an ability to hack
