Pro tip: the reason women make up excuses is because women as a collective whole are constantly being guilted for not wanting to have sex with their partners, and just not wanting to at a given time isn’t considered a “good enough” reason by itself.
I really don’t get how so many of my fellow dudes can’t grasp that nobody owes them a reason for not sexing them.
ABC’s upcoming December holiday special Toy Story That Time Forgot is an official, licensed sequel to the Toy Story series, the second such special after 2013’s highly-rated Toy Story of Terror. In it, the series’ recurring crew of living toys meet the “coolest set of action figures ever,” who turn out to be “dangerously delusional.”

Key Obamacare subsidies in 36 states struck down in court ruling
Washington Post: A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that people in 36 states that use the federal insurance exchange cannot receive tax subsidies under Obamacare.
The ruling, if upheld, could prove a major setback for President Obama’s health care law.

That is… not entirely true. First, it’s not a ruling regarding the legality of the subsidies, it’s just a ruling saying that the language of the bill says that only states with their own insurance marketplaces qualify for the subsidies. Meaning that if an amendment is passed on the bill, the problem would go away.
It ALSO ignores the fact that a contradictory ruling was released less than two hours later. And that the federal government is challenging the first decision.
Don’t panic (yet).
That’s really not a salient point to make, though, for 2 reasons.
Reason 1: assuming that ultimately SCOTUS agrees with the DC court, there’d probably be some time in between whenever that ruling came down and any legislative fix. Even if there was some sort of clause that retroactively provides the subsidies through this gap, what happens to folks if that gap makes them have to drop their insurance coverage, or even just have to pay significantly higher premiums than what was promised? I’m sure there are some other problems too with crafting a bill that fixes this and doesn’t also create or fail to fix some other issues, but there’s a bigger issue.
Reason 2: There is no real path for any legislation that does much of anything to the ACA to get through the House and the Senate, as they are arranged now. And if we lose the Senate (which really is a likely scenario right now), then the only ACA related stuff that gets through either repeals the law or rolls back huge chunks of it.
So yes, nobody’s subsidies are going anywhere yet. But it’s hard not to see how this is starting us down a not-so-great path.
