Would you place your self in the category above?
Me, no. The government, maybe. I will have to see how it all shakes out for us in December.

Tell you what, this Liberal hopes not ONE of a million things that effect the price of doing business INCREASES for your business,
You just might have to close your imaginary doors.
I sure hope you do not throw that tenant out who contributes nothing to society,($600.00 a month for rent, excluded) to make a political statement.
The Loss of income forcing you to seek pubic assistance for food just like those that you think that are so far below you.
BTW- Interest rates for worthy creditors is extremely low, the Stock market is paying dividends and maintaining a steady increase........
WOW----The answer to your problems,
Get a loan at less than 4% to floor plan your (wink) business then invest your money in the stock market.
And do not even get me started on bonds..........
LMAO
I'm not going to throw the tenant out. It's one of the only avenues tax payers like myself have to get some of the money we pay in back. The problem is that it isn't near enough compared to what I pay in. I will never have to go on food stamps and I think no one is below me but I don't pretend that their circumstances are not, for the most part, self inflicted. That just rubs ideological liberals like yourself the wrong way because you like to pretend that ones bad circumstances can be blamed on the successful behavior of another thus the successful behavior needs to be penalized and given to the one in the bad circumstance. I certainly don't see it that way so you see me as greedy, though nothing could be farther from the truth.

Which interpretation? Forget the Bible, concentrate on the word of Jesus, nothing else.

Interesting read for you Bible scholars...and perfectly normal and required for an adult male Jew.

This in no way discredits Jesus' stature or work, just brings into play the male dominated hierarchy within the early Church hellbent on excluding women from any meaningful place within their leadership.

How would your salary compare to that of a Wal-Mart worker or say even a Fed-Ex drivers?
Oh, so like your man you want everyone equal, uh? That's fine as long as everyone works the same number of hours. Is that going to happen?

Every man is already equal, from there it becomes individual initiative that determines ones success or failure, but I don't think Topix time is considered work.

What are you saying? That I only see one side? I beg to differ. But then you don't know me well enough to know that I have applauded and condemned both sides where and when it was deserved. I have been called a liberal here on Topix. I have also been called a right-winger.
And yet when you don't agree with what i post you jump straight away to calling me a liberal.... That's hypercritical.

Most liberals and many other parasite takers mistakenly think their success or lack of it and their well being is entirely dependent on other people things or conditions. Thats why they dont approve of those who are self reliant & have Know How.

They fear those that are self reliant because they could never be that way. It's not in their makeup.

Same person who said that says this;

"and I think no one is below me but I don't pretend that their circumstances are not"

You saying poor people are not below you, but yet you say self reliance, "It's not in their makeup"

In other words, those "circumstances" which are below you, are self inflicted, by those who are not below you.

Seems as though your opinion changes depending on whom you are talking to.

Hey Danzig, while I agree with where you're coming from, it's a waste of your time expecting any converts among these cowboys. Hell they've still got cowshit on their Sunday boots.

If your going to quote me at least do it in the context in which I posted. I said "I will never have to go on food stamps and I think no one is below me but I don't pretend that their circumstances are not, for the most part, self inflicted" meaning their circumstances are, by in large, a result of poor life choices by the individual and not some external factor. Even though you are a liberal, I expected you to be better than the gutter tactics that the sleeziest on the left use. I guess not.
People and circumstances are two completely different things. No one person is better than another but choices people make can cause them to end up in situations where life is much harder than those who have made responsible life choices. Those that made responsible life choices should always be willing to help someone who has not, climb out of the hole they are in if the person that made the bad choices is willing to make the tough decisions it will take to overcome their current situation. If the person who is in a bad situation isn't willing to do what it takes to overcome their poor decisions then they should be allowed to waller in their pitty but they deserve no help. Before you go popping off about "what about this" or "what about that", I realize there are those circumstances that are beyond ones control like losing ones house in a fire or a husband dying that was the sole bread winner in a family leaving the wife a widow. Those are the individuals that NEED help and should recieve all the assistance they NEED. Noone that goes through something like that should have to go it alone. To take it a step farther, I would venture to say that if we eliminated the waste and abuse in the social programs we would have more than enough to take care of those that NEED assisstance. As it stands now, we have people that need help that "don't qualify" while others that are just lazy qualifying for every single government program on earth.

almost every so called wealthy or richperson ive ever known is always looking for opportunities to give back. Believe it or not the harder a person works and the more they give back the luckier they become. Having stated that I believe that a life without problem,s or worry would not be worth living.

Haha, ok. Well, shitty boots are ok, but crap in the mind makes things bad for all of us. Pretty funny when you think of it though, didn't Jesus advocate open-mindedness? I seems that the bible is in conflict with that, but then again, Jesus didn't write the bible. Maybe it was written by people with a different agenda than the truth?

To hell with this fiscal cliff deal, raise taxes on everyone.

Then later work on revenues with a new Congress.
