Arnold, I've visited the Holocaust Museum in D.C. as have millions. While I found it quite disturbing, it was a testament to those that died and the horrible way(s) they died. It is personal to me on many levels, but I don't expect everyone that goes through the museum to personalize it as I do. With that being said, just because Germans killed Jews, I don't go around with a chip on my shoulder toward Germans or people of German decent, otherwise I wouldn't be married. Please understand and I don't know how else to put it, but we must never forget The Holocaust, but we can't be bitter at people that just happen to be from Germany. It's a matter of being able to forgive and I can do that, and I leave the judging to God. You're very quick to judge people guilty by association, I don't. You and your wingman have always acted as though those of us on here that aren't democrats are responsible for everything the republicans do or that we necessarily agree. You're judging us because we have chosen to be republicans, not off who we are. You've all but held me personally responsible for the vote for gay marriage being voted down in N.C. and I didn't even vote. I would have voted yes, marriage is between a man and a woman, but my brother's welfare meant more to me than a vote. You need to stop personalizing everything that doesn't go your way and you definitely need to stop judging people based off a common association. How burdened you must be carrying around the problems of everyone in the world "you feel" have been unjustly treated. Relax Arnold, you're only responsible for your choices and behaviors and let others own theirs'.
I remember the conversation that we had on here long ago where your brother's welfare was the topic of discussion was regarding voting Republican would be against the welfare of your brother's interest. Remember? And you got hotter than a firecracker and told me to never "mess with your family". I have never even mentioned your brother since then because I respected that. Now, when Silver goes on a barrage and uses racial names against blacks, and here even tonight, wanted to discredit my mother, it's OK with you, and "not to hate anyone" or 'carry the burdens of the world'. Listen, when you grow up humiliated by a group of assholes all your life, you learn not to take it. And, Silver is the ultimate asshole on this forum. So, take a bit of your own medicine, and try to project in my situation being the same as what you thought was disrespecting your brother. I have never disrespected your brother, and I know that is off limits because I respect your feelings in that regard. But read back a few posts and see the disrespect he gave my mother. He is safe on the computer because if he would have said that to my face, I would have whipped his ass. You know where I am coming from. He is a complete asshole and a jerk. I will be so glad when he does get the hell out of here.

Most of the rich don't pay any income tax, they pay capital gains tax...which would be the same rate for you if have investments.
As for me and my former business, as well as almost all businesses, I didn't "pay" any taxes, those expenses were consolidated into the price of goods and services and passed on the the customer. That's how businesses operate which is well within the law.

The point that I am making about The Holocaust and Slavery is that the horrors of those two events should never be forgotten, so that neither is never again repeated. We don't accomplish that by silence.

But doesn't slavery still exist today through the Commucrats agenda of keeping the majority of blacks on the plantation of social programs in order to keep their votes? I understand that not all abuse the system but abuse is also more rampant than most believe. Would you not agree that constantly giving someone something enslaves them to society? For example, if you gave all of your students straight A's without requiring them to do any work, not only would they vote you teacher of the year but they would also become enslaved/burden to society due to not having the proper education/skills to become a productive part of society? And yes, there are exceptions but those are few and far between.

Question. How is the slavery of today any different than the slavery of years past?(Aside from the obvious whips, chains etc)

Years ago a particular political party fought to keep the rights of slave ownership to force those slaves to work the fields of another for nothing in return.

Today a particular political party fights to force those willing to produce to provide for those that are able but choose not too.(Aside from the obvious handicapped, elderly etc)

It appears there may be no such thing as true freedom, only new ways to be enslaved.

Arnold, I didn't read Silver's posts last night. We all know math is not my forte and when he, TSF and Pro started debating math and throwing out all those numbers, I checked out on their posts. You, Lu and I were having us a good history lesson and I was all into that. With that being said, I went back and read Silver's post about your mother. Now, I like Silver but I don't care who you are, if you start on my mother, I'd whip your ass or get mine whipped trying. I found his remarks ridiculing your mother as low as I found yours' and Mike when you started on my brother. I'm not even going to act like either of you had my brother's interest at heart, you two wanted to go in for the kill on RS and me. What better way, you suggest to a stranger that he pay my brother's medical bills because we couldn't? You know good and well you went after me because I said and I'll repeat it again, I don't understand why a man BORN with disabilities can get very little to no help from the government and welfare queens can have baby after baby and the government can't give them enough. I also couldn't understand why my family should go broke paying his medical bills and the government makes us pay for everything for chronic welfare lushes. Also, did you feel good about asking RS on a public forum to pay my brother's bills? Took a big man to use a physically challenged person and their situation to score a political point. Even in this post to me, you're still not owning what you did as wrong when you use phrases such as "what I thought was disrespecting" my brother. Hell, I didn't think it, everybody on here but you and your wingman knew and expressed it. So when you tell me to "take a bit of my medicine", unfortunately, I've had my dose, per you, and Silver gave you a dose of yours'. It doesn't make what he said right, but you weren't right either and two wrongs don't make a right, so we should stop this discussion now. My daugther was used the other night by your wingman to try to score him "debate" points, it didn't work. Didn't see you taking up for her. Let's do the mob creed and leave family out of our debates. They're not on here, we are and it's wrong for ANY of us to attack each other's family when they didn't sign up for it.

I didn't intend to rehash all of this about your brother when I mentioned it, but I certainly apologized to you and said that I would never go that direction again, and I kept my word. That's about all I can do.

What happened is that you and pro jumped from a mathematical principle to wealth redistribution simply because you associate the words and not because there is any real connection.
Actually, I oppose wealth redistribution, to the wealthy by tax breaks, subsidies, incentives, exemptions, exclusions, no bid contracts, political kickbacks , etc as well as to the poor through dependency generating programs. I have constantly advocated elimination of redistribution, starting with the most expensive welfare to the rich programs.

Electrical power distribution has absolutely nothing to do with wealth redistibution, yes. But we were talking about wealth redistibution and I gave you card carrying, stamp US mail on them, critisms of economic policies of wealth distibution, which you cast a vote in favor of, with your support for Obama.

More republikan BS. Neither Iraq or Afghanistan were any threat to the US unless someone went there to make themselves available to being shot by someone riding a camel or donkey. The non existent WMD s were simply an excuse to award huge no bid logistics contracts to entities like KBR, which coincidentally belonged to the VP Cheany (who was the real president at the time). As it turned out, everything that W was telling the American public then were lies. Only republikans still believe that BS.

I think you are seeing boogers behind every tree. Money examples are excellent tools for getting the attention of children because it lends relevancy to math which is but an abstraction .
Republikans want to destroy public education in order to further their agenda of poisoning childrens minds with ignorance, misinfomation and lock step agreement to tax breaks for the rich.
