Christian ethics? Seriously? And Jehovahn economics?
All I can think of now is the phrase "irreconcilable difference," and to wish you good luck as well with all of that.
You can't seem to get Christianity off your brain, IANS.

"Jehovahn economics"?

How did you associate that with corporations?

Hey, Bub, your contrary self is not on here ranting against Buddhist, Hindu, Greek, or Roman ethics. You are railing against the ethics of the religion du jour. Same old thing for almost 2000 years.

Good luck with that. I think that you don't understand the people that you carry water for very well. They have no respect for your liberty, just their own. They want to concentrate wealth, opportunity, and privilege. They are contemptuous of you and me both.
What amazes me is why you still think otherwise. These are people that are not satisfied with winning. They need you to lose to feel better about themselves.
You make easy for Buck naked the Simpleton to understand , i make to complicated for him ; see like you doing better job in explaining department! Kudos to you IANS, try wake up the little jughead! ABbabbabaaa

Former president Jimmy Carter:
'
We sent Marines into Lebanon and you only have to go to Lebanon, to Syria, to Jordan ...too witness first-hand the intense hatred among many people for the United States because we bombed and shelled and unmercifully killed totally innocent villagers-women and children and farmers and housewives-in those villages around Beirut .... As a result of that ...we became kind of a Satan in the minds of those who are deeply resentful. That is what precipitated the taking of our hostages and that is what has precipitated some of the terrorist attacks.'

The government is without any moral or constitutional basis for determining wages.
You and I have no right to say how much money someone "deserves".
A person's labor, brains, and industriousness is worth EXACTLY what he can convince someone to pay for it.
No more, no less.
A free market based on each person's self-interest is the best and only method of achieving prosperity.
There are too few people remaining who understand this, and the results are openly observed. And it's getting worse.
Where AIN lest off! Of course that given govt don't have right to determine wages for those companies. A unfettered free market only mostly benefits those greedy Monolitihic monoplolizer who plunders third world nations and other nations of it raw resources and steals other nations talents, seem like you need to reasearch more on How our obnoxious US militaritic Neo-imprailism had outsourced American jobs and even ruined world economies, and no wonder illegals are coming to Us because of ?

Buck, you are starting to sound like a Topix atheist citing Dawkins. An ism is taking over your mind.
Reagan was a creep wearing a mask and a flag slung over his shoulder.
I heard rumors a long time ago that when he arrived in Hollywood he courted the gay producers for parts. In his term there was also an ex-ABC correspondent who was fired for false reporting that turned Republican activist that committed suicide. He was known for taking his gay lovers on midnight tours of the White House. That was in the newspapers twice that I saw, then disappeared forevermore. I was sitting in a HoJo in Coral Gables waiting for breakfast looking out over US1 by the front door the first time I read that. I was sitting in the larger dining area the second time, and in another paper. These were not the Enquirer. The story just evaporated into thin air.
BTW, as governor of California he legalized abortion. Two million abortions resulted from that.
More bull shit.

He never cut funding for state facilities. It never happened.

You already pointed out how spending grew in those years. You can't have it both ways.

You obviously know nothing factual about Reagan's record. There is no shortage of innuendo you can throw at the wall. It's unbecoming and irrational.

REAGAN'S RECORD:

* The proportion of total income taxes paid by the top 1 percent rose sharply under President Reagan, from 18 percent in 1981 to 28 percent in 1988.

* While the average effective tax rate for the top 1 percent fell by 30 percent between 1980 and 1992, and by 35 percent for the top 20 percent of income earners, it fell by 44 percent for the second-highest quintile, 46 percent for the middle quintile, 64 percent for the second-lowest quintile, and 263 percent for the bottom quintile.

* These reductions for the lowest-income groups were so large because President Reagan doubled the personal exemption, increased the standard deduction, and tripled the earned income tax credit, which provides net cash for single-parent families with children at the lowest income levels. These changes eliminated income tax liability altogether for over 4 million lower-income families.

* Critics often add in the Social Security payroll tax and argue that the total federal tax burden shifted more to lower-income groups and away from upper-income groups; but President Reagan's changes were in the INCOME TAX, not in the Social Security payroll tax. The payroll tax was imposed by proponents of big government over the past 50 years, and it is they, not Ronald Reagan, who should be held accountable for its distributional effects.
Nevertheless, even if one counts the Social Security payroll tax, the SHARE OF TOTAL FEDERAL TAXES increased between 1980 and 1989 for the following groups:

For the top 1 percent of taxpayers, from 12.9 percent in 1980 to 15.4 percent in 1989;

For the top 5 percent of taxpayers, from 27.3 percent in 1980 to 30.4 percent in 1989; and

For the top 20 percent of taxpayers, from 56.1 percent in 1980 to 58.6 percent in 1989.

* On the other hand, the SHARE OF TOTAL FEDERAL TAXES, if one includes the Social Security payroll tax, declined for four groups:

For the second-highest 20 percent of taxpayers, from 22.2 percent in 1980 to 20.8 percent in 1989;

For the middle 20 percent of taxpayers, from 13.2 percent in 1980 to 12.5 percent in 1989;

For the second-lowest 20 percent of taxpayers, from 6.9 percent in 1980 to 6.4 percent in 1989; and

For the lowest 20 percent of taxpayers, from 1.6 percent in 1980 to 1.5 percent in 1989.

Ronald Reagan's economic policy is the most successful of the 20th century. His foreign policy ended the Cold War and made possible the subsequent defense spending reductions that were largely responsible for the balanced budget Clinton and Gingrich took credit for.

I can keep this up.
