Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Big business has put a guilt trip on us to do so.
It seems to have permeated even you.

The discussions here are also more interesting and relevant than WSJLM. I just looked. No issues, just gossip and backbiting.

And to think how that crowd complained everything had been happy before our arrival, and we were there for the sole purpose of disrupting their fellowship. The fact is that they squabble much more than we do here,and mostly over scriptural nonsense:

"PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS AND FORGIVE US OUR OFFENSES RATHER THAN JUST KEEP TELLING US HOW MUCH YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE THINGS AND HOW HARD YOU TRY TO DO IT ALL!"

(He's pretty emphatic about this forgiveness stuff. I'll bet that he really wanted to add, "asshole" to the end of that.)

"I am not friend of table of Lars and immoral devils, I advice harshly and without of any copmassion all of you?"

(Guess who)

"I have made it more than clear man is not capable of perfect obedience but rather that is the goal he is to always be striving towards."

(What a great goal)

"is paul telling the hebrew christians to crack down and obey the laws of moses or is he telling them to fear falling from grace and from ceasing to trust in Christ's complete work on the cross?"

(You just can't talk about submission enough)

And your point is as wrong as before.
There is not one taxpayer in the lower bracket. There are far more people than in the top 10%. The complaint is that the 10% are not taxed heavily enough, yet the percentage of total income taxes they pay, though being small in numbers of persons, refutes that outright.
The 'TREND' in income tax receipts is that they have risen, not fallen. This year is a record. If the 10% pays 70% of the total now, it means his tax bill has increased in real dollars over what it was before, even though his share is still 70%.
And even if the downward trend you erroneously allude to were true, the wealthiest 10% would still be bearing the brunt of taxation, as a few are financing services for the many.
I'm one of them.

My tax return is higher than what I pay in taxes, thanks to Earned Income Credit, the Child Tax Credit and my mortgage points.

I don't make the rules, just follow them.

I for one am grateful to those 10% that pay the majority of taxes in the US.

Suddenly, you've smoked weed and coke.

Your pot comes mixed with tobacco? That should be easy to see before you buy it.

Pot buds are little pine cone shaped (piniform) clusters of greenish to rusty colored, hairy or powdery balls. http://snipurl.com/28aakcq

Processed tobacco is loose and brown http://snipurl.com/28aaki4 , and from the plant, is a leaf http://snipurl.com/28aakqp

I didn't know the weed was laced with coke until the next day.

I was f_cking with Lunger. The dude deserved it. That's why I said I didn't do drugs, now knowing that tobacco and alcohol are "drugs".

I'm shocked that your life is so meaningless that you either saved that or took the time to search for it.

Sorry, scarscar.

I call it tyranny - ish.
Just like the tyranny, or slavery, you advocate by having government determine what someone is allowed to earn.
If government gets to control the amount you earn, and they get to set the amount themselves, then they control it all.
That's slavery, Dave.
Reagan was the best president of the 20th century, and the last good president we had, or will have, until things get a lot worse.
If you want me to dig into that argument with you, we can, and you will lose.
One of us knows what he's talking about here.
:-)

Sorry, Buck. I was here when all that happened.

Did I tell you my Momma was a John Bircher, or that I grew up quite familiar with the right wing crowd and how they thought? Or how much they had infiltrated government? The Cold War era was a strange animal.

From that I also recognize the flip side of that coin.

Eisenhower and Carter were the two best presidents of my time, with the nod going to Ike. Carter was assassinated by the entrenched rightwingers in the bureaucracy. He didn't stand a chance. Especially since he wasn't a stooge for Israel. That was a most interesting pivotal point in "liberal" doctrine.

However, everything gets hijacked to suit one's ambitions. The Reagan crowd was particularly good at that.

Put the extreme lefties on the left side of the wall, and the extreme righties on the right side. Then you alternate shots side to side.

I'm a rather militant middle of the roader.

Raising the minimum wage would only raise the price of everything else.

Do you wanna pay $8 for a gallon of milk?
Yeah.

Couldn't have higher wages cutting into record profits or anything.

The shareholders would probably stage a revolution.

That was called the "October Surprise".
It's been proven a total fabrication by a couple of journalists.
What the hell have you been reading?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_Surprise...

It wasn't proven to be a fabrication.

Ronald Reagan was called the Teflon President. There is a reason for that. Edwin Meese being the Attorney General who had to approve mergers of the time. Uh, that's when the news organizations did their big mergers and consolidations. If Ed approved them.

You won't find too much bad stuff about him from then. I read some back then and they are no where to be found now. And this was in major newspapers.

The Reagan crowd was on the ruthless side. But they weren't so ideological as power hungry.

The Brits used to prefer their pot mixed with tobacco if my memory serves me right. More economical and rolled better. You could make them look like real cigarettes. Smoked more evenly, also.

Don't be a dumb ass, if possible.

Everything that minimum wage employers provide will go up with the minimum wage.

The employers of the minimum wage work force will not take the hit for the wage increase, they'll simply raise the price of their products or services so they can keep their profit margin where they want it. Some employers will not be able to afford their current work crew and be forced to fire some.

McDonald's will change their dollar menu.

Milk, eggs and other dairy products will get the prices raised.

Your local Chinese food place with raise the price of their food.

Etc.

It will also increase the hiring of illegal aliens that don't have a set pay.

You'd be like: "No, I don't need to teach the class of '13 anything, I already taught it to the class of '12. I don't want to repeat myself."
Oh, please, dude.

Talk about false analogies.

If you want to help, eliminate the minimum wage.

That's why they vote for democrats.
Buck, I hate to call you a dunce.

So I won't.

Even though when it comes to economics, you are a dunce.

Stick to infinity; and reincarnation; and humor.
