Nullification has been uniformly rejected by the US Supreme Court. Please do a Google search for the Nullification Crisis of 1837. Then look up the most recent rejection of nullification at the US Supreme Court level in Cooper vs Aaron. That old dead dog won't hunt.

For the benefit of the one or two that don't already know this, that X stands for the Greek letter chi which was in the form of an X. Chi is the first letter of "Christ", in Greek, and Greek was the language of educated people of that day.

Watch it! I like the Baptists. Where would we be without all those jokes about the priest, the rabbi, and the minister who.....?

Seriously, Sequoia nailed it. Public prayer is infantile and an abomination to anyone that has real faith. What a person says he believes means nothing - what he does tells us all we need to know.

You've got the "explaining" part wrong. No one outside the absurdist right-wing blogosphere buys your version of basic principles. You also used the wrong word. A principal is either first, or is the manager of school teachers. The most important rules are your principal principles.

Reducing the total cost will require nearly everyone to have coverage so we are rid of freeloaders, and substantial reduction of fraud, waste, and abuse. A lot of our current cost comes from those two areas

From the IRS website:

To be eligible, you must cover at least 50 percent of the cost of single (not family) health care coverage for each of your employees. You must also have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). Those employees must have average wages of less than $50,000 a year.

Your blog-sourced quote is wrong about the thing that matters most.

You've stretched a silly concept to the point of lunacy, and all because that scary man got re-elected and you can't take the country back to the 1950's. I thought we knew better around here in the Heartland, so I must have been asleep when the rest of you went crazy.

Do Catholics make their Baptist employees convert, or vice versa? Do Christian Scientists try to force their employees to abstain from the regular medical care the rest of us expect? No, but the Greens want to force their employees, and now the entire country to "respect" their beliefs by allowing them to pick and choose which health care benefits they are willing to provide their employees. A pox on their houses.

Your friends are no better informed than you are. There are federal tax credits available to support any real additional cost that comes from providing health care to their employees.
