Irrelevant. That goes to things like wars and interest on the national debt.

That pays for your share of the risk pool for your potential illnesses now. You won't have that insurance once you hit 65.

Using your 50 year calculation, I'm gonna pay (assuming the rates don't go up, which they already have) upwards of half a million.
I doubt it. My calculations were based on smoking two packs a day with three dollars of tax on each pack. You'd hit a half million if you smoked five packs a day with six bucks of tax per pack on them

Is this going to be a regular MO for you - defending whatever harm or expense you choose to impose on others by pointing to another problem, and demanding that attention be directed there instead?

I thought that conservative Christians were all about self-reliance, rugged individualism, accountability, carrying their own weight, and smaller government. Don't you contemptuously refer to Medicare as an "entitlement"? I must have misunderstood. You seem to want the taxpayers to float your indulgences and excesses for you with an entitlement.

Well stated!

Unfortunately that does appear to be his MO.

I noticed the two examples you gave were in poor urban areas?
ever hear of Al Capone and his gang. They and others committed a lot of murders, in Chicago in the 1930's
ever hear of the Mafia?
ever visit Boston?? does the name Whitey Bolger ring a bell?
in the early 1900's there were plenty of poor Irish in NYC. guess what, many formed gangs....crime and murder were pretty high. Of course they didn't have the prolific number high capacity firearms available then that we do today.
you provide one statistic. those countries where black crime rates are high are usually 3rd world POOR countries.
everybody knows that one of the chief causes of violent crime rates is economically based. another is population density.
having been near white slums, I can tell you the violent crime rate is just as high as black slums.
Racial composition of geographic areas
Studies examining the relationship between percentages of different races in an area and crime rates have generally either found similar relationships as for nationwide crime rates or no significant relationships. Most often studied are correlations between black and Hispanic populations in a given area and crime. Such data may reveal a possible connection, but is functionally inconclusive due to a variety of other correlating factors which overlap with race and ethnicity. While there is a correlation between blacks and Hispanics and crime, the data implies a stronger tie between poverty and crime than crime and any racial group, when gender is taken into consideration. The direct correlation between crime and class, when factoring for race alone, is relatively weak. When gender, and familial history are factored, class correlates stronger with crime than race or ethnicity. Studies indicate that areas with low socioeconomic status may have the greatest correlation of crime with young and adult males, regardless of racial composition, though its effect on females is negligible.

"I noticed the two examples you gave were in poor urban areas?"

I noticed you offerd no evidence that urban areas can corrupt black people.

"ever hear of Al Capone and his gang. They and others committed a lot of murders, in Chicago in the 1930's

Where did I ever argue that whites can not be criminals? Why do you go off point like this? Are you dishonest or a moron?

"you provide one statistic. those countries where black crime rates are high are usually 3rd world POOR countries."

Since when is the USA a third world poor country? Though I will admit, Detroit is beginning to look a lot like an African slum.

"everybody knows that one of the chief causes of violent crime rates is economically based."

No, that is what deluded brainwashed liberals believe who have been feed racial equality dogma from birth.

"having been near white slums, I can tell you the violent crime rate is just as high as black slums."

Then buy your next house in a black majority area and enjoy the bargain you will get!

"Studies examining the relationship between percentages of different races in an area and crime rates have generally either found similar relationships as for nationwide crime rates or no significant relationships."

Rather the single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic.

Right, and evolution is a lie.... You are probably too stupid to even realize it but you have just claimed that Darwin's theory of natural selection is not correct. Do differing environments create different outcomes on a species or not? You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Educate yourself! Blacks are about TWICE as likely to be serial killers.

"Only a few systematic accounts of the race and ethnicity of serial killers exist. There is an exhaustive study of African American serial killers (Homicide Studies 2005; 9; 271) by criminologist Anthony Walsh, and also Eric W. Hickey’s book, Serial killers and their victims, Brooks/Cole, 1997. Walsh identified 90 African American and 323 white American serial murderers, all men operating between 1945 and 2004.(Though Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans were not included in the study, their addition would not alter the fact that most serial killers are white men.) African American serial killers made up 22% of Walsh’s sample, a figure in close agreement Hickey’s enumeration. But, as blacks number well below 22% of the U.S. population, they are actually overrepresented among the ranks of serial killers — roughly by a factor of 2."

I was watching this science thing about IQ tests and they were saying that the IQ test isn't judging your academic ability but it actually shows how well adapted u r to modern society. Anyway, I didn't get it.

A black person can be clever and still have a low IQ test score and vice versa.

why it has always been obnoxious, I do believe that it has been the recent studies that proved 2nd hand smoke is deadly that led to the banning of it from public places
So what. My point was that it being obnoxious was enough to jusitfy the laws against smoking in public places no different from laws against playing loud music.

I never said you can not find exceptions. Low IQ people tend to make low IQ decisions. If an unmarried, uneducated, unemployed woman gets pregnant and has a baby, poverty is her lifestyle choice for she chose it with her own stupid low IQ behavior. Ghettos are created by the people who live in them, not cast upon these people.

You are not intelligent if:

you do not take school seriously

get involved in drugs, gangs, stealing

waste your money on booze, cigarettes and the lottery

have babies you can not afford to raise

find a gang as a valid career choice

THESE ARE THE BEHAVIORS OF THE POOR Poor people in general are poor quality people, people who make consistently make poor choices.

Show me poor people doing everything right, making wise choices and I'll show you wealthy people doing everything wrong, making stupid choices.
