Of course not. I wasn't aware that I had to be a Republican to like Ronald Reagan or to realize that he was one of the great president's this nation has ever known. BTW I have told you that I'm an independent on several occasions.
Let me rephrase my original statement then.

Reagan is not the Saint Republicans claim him to be nor was he
one of the greatest president's this nation has ever known .

I stand corrected, I misquoted you, you did not say 'you were not a Republican', you said you are "a Independent" my apologies sir..

The United States Senate overwhelmingly supported a tax on Internet sales today, voting 69-27 in favor of the Marketplace Fairness Act. The outcome was expected after a similar non-biding show of approval passed the Senate with roughly the same number of votes, despite extraordinary opposition from eBay and other major Internet organizations.

As we’ve written about before, supporters argue that tax-free Internet retailers have an unfair advantage over their physical counterparts and it robs states of billions in revenue. Opponents counter that the current bill would create an unwieldy tax code labyrinth, which would be forced on startups and Internet retailers before software technology could manage the new tax.

The bill now heads to the House of Representatives for possible revision. TechCrunch’s sources on Capitol Hill say that broad support in the Senate makes it difficult for House members to oppose the legislation, but it may be modified to increase the threshold for businesses who have to collect online taxes, from $1M in revenue to $10M

This is one of those laws that affects almost everyone directly. I’m kinda surprised there’s not more of an uproar.

Update 2: House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte just released a statement (The Internet Sales Tax bill most likely will go through the Judiciary Subcommittee, so his views are very influential):

“I do not believe the Marketplace Fairness Act is sufficiently simplified yet. While it attempts to make tax collection simpler, it still has a long way to go. There is still not uniformity on definitions and tax rates, so businesses would still be forced to wade through potentially hundreds of tax rates and a host of different tax codes and definitions.… I am open to considering legislation concerning this topic but these issues, along with others, would certainly have to be addressed. The Committee will also look at alternatives that could enable states to collect sales tax revenues without opening the door to aggressive state action against out-of-state companies.”

Where are we headed, is this is what human evolution looks like?

A culture more concerned with alchemy, superstition, witchcraft, and less focused on objective analysis and practical solutions.

Are we to hate beyond our ability to love, to deem our neighbor's value to society based on our personal inability to comprehend that society must integrate, must fuse, must realize that success in any endeavor requires cooperation...even sometimes a tiny bit of respect.

Has anyone noticed how cool (no pun intended) the global warming debate has gotten? Since we are almost 10 years into a cooling cycle, I suspect what happened in the late 1970's will repeat. For decades, scientists had argued that humans were the cause of global cooling. Around 1980, the earth entered into a warming cycle and it wasn't long before the same scientists that argued that global cooling was a global epidemic turned right around and began arguing that global warming was the new threat. Of course we all know that Al Gore perfected inserting a capitalistic element into the argument and has become filthy rich because of it. I don't believe a word of those global warming scientist since I know they will be the same scientists that jump on the global cooling bandwagon here in a couple of years or so.

I have not "noticed" that.

I suspect notice would be the key word.

Here it is, Co2 is a greenhouse gas, greenhouse gas destroys O-zone, O-zone protects Earth from most incoming UV radiation from the sun while protecting life from DNA-damaging radiation, UV radiation increases earth's surface land temps, more so it's oceans, radiation alters lifeforms. Sea levels rise, desertification increases, worldwide fresh water supplies diminish as Arctic ice disappears.

Solution, cut carbon emissions or deny it exist. Mankind being what it is, denial is of course, the winner....for now.
