According to Catch, the people remaining in New York are financing your move to New Jersey.

By his calculus, the NY taxes you don't pay have to be made up by some poor dupe, thus you are not even spending your own money; you're spending theirs.

I bet you thought your money was yours, huh?

In post 185738 you said your god is not omnipotent.
That's an unusual claim for a christian so I then asked if you thought your god could be damaged.
<quoted text>
Omnipotent and all powerful not the same things, dude.

If one is omnipotent, that means it can do anything. Since there are things God cant do, that negates His omnipotence.

I suspect you are making a dime off Gates' wealth.
Do you ever save money by purchasing on the internet, using your windows platform?
Gates is paying more, both in percentage of income, and in real dollars.
With a flat tax, he would also be paying a heck of a lot more, in real dollars.
I have never seen a credible argument opposing a flat tax.
An easier argument can be made that higher earners should pay a lower tax rate.
I use Linux.

There is no fair and equitable tax system in our economic system. There are no Horatio Alger stories anymore. The big boys kill any competition or innovation threatening their product. We live in an ogliarchy the crooks seized 30 years ago. That's right, Ronald Reagan and the cabal he fronted.

Bull Shit.
Doesn't cost a taxpayer a dime.
Except the taxpayer who pays the check.
Looks like we've hit an impasse on this one.

Let's discuss the Constitution instead.

Do you agree with G.W. Bush that it's just a lousy piece of paper?

It's not any god's fault, as I see it.
That's because I don't believe in your god or any other ones.
I'm just pointing out the flaws in your own beliefs.
Your silly response points out those flaws very clearly: You believe your god gave those poor Filipinos "the sense" to move to Beverly Hills. But he forgot to give them even the air fare.
Some god you've got. He answers "no" to prayers, and sits idly by while thousands die and hundreds of thousands lose their homes.
I see you're not using the common sense that God gave you.

What sense does it make to move from an area add that's at risk for typhoons, hurricanes and tornadoes for a place that's at risk from massive earthquakes?

Dumbass typical Californian.

My argument is not a sham, it is entirely correct.
Your argument is a socialist one - it assumes the taxpaying public owes the government a fixed amount of money, and if one owes less, the other owes more.
It's not true. And accounting does not work that way.
It's also none of your business what wine someone drinks unless you are paying for it, or you are asked your opinion.
You are a good example of why nobody should ever elect liberals to run tax policy, or any policy.
I am often asked for my opinion on the wine.

Catcher is a gustatory connoisseur on matters oenological.

I'm a mean soccer player, too.

This isn't a ping pong game.
Actually, we elites call it table tennis.
OMG I get believe you just said that.

HA HA!!!

Back in high school I had this super fat, super slobby teacher that slept in class all day. He also said he was an elitist and I would cause intentional arguments with him because he also called ping-pong "table tennis".

Buck, to me the sad thing is that there are so many people who buy into your sham argument. And some of these people sit at home eating beans and rice while they figure out how to pay the rent, and in the meantime the rich guys drink 25-year-old bottles of French wine while they talk golf.
Your point? Being successful should require feelings of guilt?
I am well acquainted with people who rice and bean it and for some nothing changes during economic booms or recessions.

I'd rather be eating beans and race then drinking some nasty 25-year-old rotten grape juice.

There's an A-Rabb on the Richard Dawkins thread named Hazem Selawi.

I changed his name to Hazel Sealshit.

I think it's some of my best work.

I had an uncle named Hazel.

I don't know what Catcher's fantasy with Beverly Hills is. No one in their right mind would live there.

Just people dedicated to impressing other people.

We'll have to disagree on this one Dave.
