Re: SCOTUS upholds Michigan's ban on AA in admissions

Take it for what it is worth as I haven't read the opinions but it seems that Sotomayer's concern was with continued discrimination against minorities which is fine except that ( maybe not in Michigan) Asian Americans seem to believe that affirmative actions discriminates against them so it seems i...

Advocating for a change in law and applying the current law does not make you a hypocrite, IMO.

Re: Welfare Whores Pt.2 - Berkshire Hathaway

No sane person would fault a company for using a tax law to their advantage. What we do fault is the creation and continued existence of such a law. I agree. But must people also don't advocate for higher taxes while using every loophole they can find or get Congress to create for them. Just about ...

Bingo. The man is using an existing law to his advantage. And this isn't a tax avoidance play. Its a tax deferral strategy. The built-in gain in the share he has today will just be transferred to a different asset which if he sold would generate a gain and a tax. There is no "step-up in basis....

Re: Who's afraid of tax reform? Almost everybody.

It has some good and some questionable pieces to it. But it has 0% chance of becoming law in its entirety. Some pieces will get picked up along the way though, especially the non-controversial revenue generators. The biggest breakthrough the bill achieved is it got the CBO to "score" the r...

Re: Vermont pushing for mandatory GMO labeling

As someone who has recently been quite involved in farming due to my distillery biz....many people would be shocked what farmers (REAL farmers, not backyard farmers) have to do to/for their crops if they are using non-GMO. Knowing what I know, I'll take GMO crops any day. Same goes for organic, whi...

I don't think the FDA has any time to deal with the "Food" aspect of their charge given the $1 trillion-a-year Drug industry they also have to watch.

I don't know if it validates any scientific research. I'm all for as much labeling as possible and allowing the customer to make a decision. They aren't asking for a Surgeon General's warning right?

Albany played a great game against #1 'Cuse this week. Lost in OT after coming back from 5 down in the 4th to tie it up.

Great result considering it was Albany's 1st game and Cuse's 2nd.

Doesn't surprise me. Once the big conferences start playing Lacrosse, all the little guys on the east coast are going to have some trouble.
