@ElMexiThunder @Keith00 @studmuffn4 Well don't get me wrong, i'm sure i'm probably coming across as more insensitive than I feel. No matter how it happens, when the NBA team leaves your city it just plain SUCKS -- and believe me, I feel really bad for SacTown bball fans if this goes through. :( at the same time, though, I feel like they have no right ragging on us about it when it was pretty clear from an outsiders standpoint that this was gonna happen sometime soon.

@Keith00 @studmuffn4 Hey, we're from Seattle. We're used to having bad sports teams. Strange that the historically best one we had was the one that MOVED, though! haha
@ElMexiThunder @Keith00 @studmuffn4 No, because the Sonics were supposedly going to stay in Seattle, and that's what the fans were told. The Kings have been shopped around to different cities for over two years now.
@Keith00 @studmuffn4 and if you really think that it would be some sort of "slap in the face" when this Kings debacle has been going on for a few YEARS now, you just need to pay more attention
@Keith00 @studmuffn4 If getting a team solely to relocate it has been the well-known intention, and the SacTown ownership CARED AT ALL about keeping their team in Sacramento, then they would've done more to keep the Kings from being THAT team. They would've done more for the fans, and they COULD'VE done more, period.
@1 Knee 4 Points 5 Rebounds 35 Million Dollars @studmuffn4 Same logic, different situation! Learn to read, 1 Knee
@DawnSpiering @Vorenious So.... the fact that you didn't previously buy insurance, or work yourself into a position and career where that would be provided for you, meant that you had absolutely no backup for a tragic, terrible, unpredictable emergency event (which should be the sole reason for having insurance). Of course, that means that I should be forced to purchase insurance for myself. Right? Yeah, that makes sense.

@mwbright @Vorenious One big difference I immediately see between the US plan and the Swiss health care system (from Wikipedia): "Insurers are required to offer this basic insurance to everyone, regardless of age or medical condition. They are not allowed to make a profit off this basic insurance."
@mwbright @jsw1108 "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.""My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."Both quotes, of course, are from Thomas Jefferson. Just because the constitution doesn't use the words "big" or "little" doesn't mean that i'm wrong. Read it, maybe?
@mwbright @Vorenious What other nation has a system close to this? Where the insurance and health care providers are still privately-owned yet the federal government MANDATES that everyone buy from them?!?! Tell me.

@mwbright @jsw1108 Because he does not have faith in the government means that he has "blind allegiance to the GOP's claptrap against 'big government?!'"You seriously worry me. THE CONSTITUTION itself has the sole purpose of protecting us from having "big government!" Just because some morons on the right claim that they're conservative doesn't mean all conservatives are Faux News Rush Limbaugh blithering idiots.
