Supreme Court: Affordable Care Act Is Constitutional

junior.kun Re:So from here on out ... (2416 comments)

This is no different than a "tax break" for mortgage interest, or any other similar tax break, which is just a tax raise for the rest of us (i.e. people who rent their homes and therefore don't get the mortgage interest deduction) If the government can raise your taxes for not having a mortgage, it follows it can raise your taxes for not having health insurance. The Supreme Court decision is logical given prior precedent.

Toei Animation Thinks Mobiles Could Save Anime

junior.kun Re:destroyed by piracy? How? (69 comments)

Actually, a lot of anime fans assume that the fansub translators know what they are doing but have no way of evaluating the quality of the translations. The nonprofessional fansub translator will get the benefit of the doubt over a working professional simply because they'll leave terms untranslated or avoid using slang. Some fan translations are horribly amateurish, but the fans will assume they are better than the professional version.

Warner Bros. to Turn All 15 Oz Books Into Movies

junior.kun Re:Wizard of Oz theory (249 comments)

OZ experts disagree with this theory, pointing to the fact that there was no contemporary discussion of any sort of political interpretation when the book came out, Baum himself denied any political intention with the piece, and other case by case facts, such as the fact that there really were yellow brick roads in America at the time he wrote the books, he didn't have to be using yellow bricks to symbolize anything.
