Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Is this your [chat]?

    Listening to this NPR special coverage of the ACA argument, and I am smiling now. I was worried when I left the office, but this is making me happy.

    They do not like the government's chances right now.

    Listening to Kennedy the one actual swing vote made me feel the other way. Roberts and Scalia were always going to vote against it so them being hard on it isn't surprising.

    Kennedy seemed to be coming around on the mandate at the end of arguments.

    NOPE.

    He did. Actually was stating some of the main arguments from the government and sounded like he agreed. So I am not feeling real bad. He is the one vote I would be worried about going either way.

    I dunno. I really don't know. But I am heartened that Kennedy did not find his limiting principle.

    I don't know if I approve of a pool where if I crawl out the wrong side I would fall and possibly die.

    Gorgeous everything else, though.

    I think that is well into the class of dwellings that is priced in Lives rather than currency.

    I think it probably costs at least fifty humans, ten goats and a few cats.

    That is the other thing I have heard from lots of different sources. Oral arguments are important but it isn't where the real decision comes down.

    Roberts may jump on with the 5 majority to try to gain some control over the opinion

    I read the transcripts of the arguments, as usual Scalia was mostly concerned with interjecting jokes than getting answers, since he's already made up his mind

    also jesus the first day of argument about the anti injunction act was mind blowingly boring

    NOPE.

    My big thing about the ACA is pre-existing conditions. As long as that stands I can live with the mandate going away because this thing going down makes single payer or cost reduction more likely in the nearer future.

    every time i see a gorgeous modern, minimalist home i wonder how much it would cost to build something like that in a 'normal' area without ten million dollar real estate. like, i'll never afford a beverly hills mansion but i think it'd be totally awesome to spend an extra couple hundred thousand to build a house like that in a 'mere mortal' neighborhood

    I really don't have anything to say about this that I haven't already said. You're dedicated to hatred regardless of the positions I've taken, so I really don't know where to go from here.

    the house my dad and his wife have built is nearly on that scale of gorgeous. No pool, but otherwise. But he was in construction his whole life and she was a dirt poor single mother who had to learn how to do every kind of house repair on her own so they did most of the work themselves. edit: and it's taken them like 10 years after moving in. Still working on the basement / attic.

    The government didn't provide one for him either. The comment this NPR reporter attributed to Paul Clement, "whenever I argued Interstate commerce and I could provide a limiting principle, I won. When I could not, I lost" is telling. He knew what to go after to sway Kennedy. Maybe he was successful.

    He rarely speaks or has questions about any case, let alone landmark ones. He is easily the "least scholarly" (this is code for "dumbest") justice the court has seen in almost 100 years.

    My hatred for him alone could fill a beautiful valley situated beneath a stylish multi-million dollar home.
