No such word as "rapture" in the bible.
Indeed not-- because rapture can also describe incredible joy.

Or a joyous feeling.

And you **know** none of **that** is in your ugly bible.

Nothing in there but hurt, hate, murder and genocide.

Right?

Thank you Doctor. Everything did turn out ok for our little town. I was in church at the time and didn't even know there was a storm. When church was over it was nice and sunny outside.
Wow.

You really are just an evil and hateful, bitter old man.

I pity you-- you have absolutely no shame of any kind.

Sickening.

The real problem, Dave, is that the wealthy have a slew of tax loopholes available, and able professionals to find them and use them.
Our system favors the rich, at the expense of the middle class and those who are barely able to make ends meet.
That's what needs to be changed.
I agree 100%-- the system needs to be equaled out.

As it stands, the rich pay nothing, or next-to-nothing.

Yet they enjoy all the benefits of a tax-supported civilization.

I agree to a point.
In my view, though, the biggest problem is the power of lobbyists.
It's shameful.
I agree with that, too-- the lobbyists need to be regulated, and all that they do, made public.

Ah, you have learned the left-wing claptrap well, my son.

But if facts matter...

The wealthy are the ones who pay the taxes. The lower half in income pay none.

Those goodies the lower half receive from the government come from payments by,...you guessed it.

Furthermore, there are no tax loopholes.

What you refer to as "loopholes" are the legally instituted regulations of the U.S. Tax Code.

They are not loopholes unless all of it is loopholes.

Most of your average Atheist donít have a reputation of giving to charitable organizations. At least thatís the way I see it.
Atheist do have a reputation of spending resources fighting Christmas traditions.
Iím sorry Doctor, Atheist just donít care about their fellow man . Not one Atheist came on topix and asked for donations to the Japan Tsunami or the Philippine storm tragedy. Thereís a reason for that. They simply donít care.

Lying your ass off once more I see. You make these ignorant statements without bothering to research the subject. I do believe thats called being a lazy ass.
In 10 days Atheists have raised 55,495.00, call that "nil" if you want.
I do believe there are MUCH better places to ask for donation than TOPIX, really now!!!!
You have NO idea how asinine your comments are, and how idiotic your conclusion are. Simply because Atheist do not believe in God automatically means they care nothing for their brothers and sister of this planet. And the incredibly sad part is you don't even know how pathetic and TOTALLY UNSUPPORTED your claim is. Do you in fact have documentation that verifies your claim that Atheists care nothing for others and refuse to help those less fortunate?

What happened to Polymath?
Polymath was last seen with a really thin knife trying to prove he could slice a pizza into infinite slices and put it back in the same box.

I warned him.

I told him if he had infinite slices of pizza of any size, it would fill the known universe, and he would have slices left over.

But he didn't believe me.

Tell you what, Buck.

Make a lot of money.

Then come see me.

I'll show you some "legally instituted regulations."

The ones intended for those who make a lot of money.

The ones unavailable to the average wage earner.

The loopholes I'm talking about.

I'll even throw you one now, as a gift, pro bono: Hobby losses.

I can set it up with thoroughbreds, or even a pig farm.

But first, you have to generate a bunch of income.

And here again, just to prove what a lying sack o shit you are. A standup comedian named Doug Stanhope raised $100.000 for the tornado victims of Moore OK. The organization he formed to raise this money is called ATHEIST UNITED.

How does it feel to be exposed as an insensitive, lying, dirt bag????

Thanks for the very interesting statistics, I really didn't think there were that many Atheists around, who knew!!!!!

He didn't believe you because you are a moron and your postulate is the result of ether a lack of a real education or brain damage. I am guessing you have untreated syphilis. I warned you about porking your porkers two years ago.

Agreed. The tax code was created by the rich for the rich. The richer you are, the more the tax code benefits you.

That is not a loophole.

And if I generated that large income, I would generate more money in taxes to the federal treasury than I would with the lower income, even allowing for the tax code provisions you call loopholes.

Further, to generate and manage that income, I would have to employ people.

You know - jobs. Heard of that lately?

And if I get the benefit of the thoroughbred "loophole", it is a marginal inducement to hire even more people.

And they will then pay taxes. See how it works?

Or, I could assume liberals are going to gain even more power, and will take ever more of my income so Barrack and Michelle's dog can fly to Martha's vineyard,,,,

and decide to stay where I am. Then we all lose.
