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.

.. when posters like Bongo, Rider, Dave and Eagle agree with me, you must come to your senses and realize us 'common folk' have a tremendous problem when Big Biz decides how the future must look ..
.. and, we haven't even started to address what happens to Small Biz when WalMart moves in ..
.. get a grip, it's not working. Must I take you over my knee? Again ??..
If I have to be the only rational person on this thread,...

I'm up to it.

Read Milton Friedman and Arthur Laffer.

Forget everything you think you know about economics, because it's all wrong.

I offer that as a favor because I like you.

Yes that’s more or less what I said in “It failed in research and development”
As yet, anything that the US (most advanced technologically) or anyone else has against extra terrestrial threat is about as useful as a monkey p|ssing in the Atlantic
Though not perfect, the US has the only viable anti ballistic missile defense systems in the world.
We also have the stealthest warplanes ever devised.
Though we are only a hair ahead in these systems, we do have the edge, in both stealth and numbers. We in short, are unmatched by any foreign power.

Amazing kit, but Vietnamese tunnels and bicycles were good enough.

I think the B2 is silly money for what it does. For the same money, US taxpayers could deploy a massive number of stand off missiles - a good number would get through.

China won't have to go through all the committees and redesigns NATO countries do to arrive at their finished aircraft. They are already test flying stealth planes. They won't be as good, but they'll be cheaper.

If (we/you/us) want to get into an arms race with China, I'm sure they'll lend us the money.

Let me get this straight.
You liked Goldwater, but disliked Reagan?
That's not possible.
Something happened to you Dave.
Something very bad.
Goldwater was a real deal. Reagan was a charlatan riding his coat tails.

Reagan's sincerity was limited to being an as*hole.

Never trust an actor.

So far, you're the only one who thinks so. Good work, Buck.
Buck Crick wrote:
Dave attempted to refute my evidence that Reagan's tax cuts led to an increase in federal revenue, but he queered the data by expressing it as a percentage of GDP. He also attempted to show that Reagan made the tax code more regressive by pointing to the relative rise in payroll taxes. I showed he was wrong by proving, first, that Reagan's measures only affected income taxes, and also by showing that, with the cuts, lower income earners' share of federal taxes went down.
It's rather easy to defend any point or its opposite by selecting the data you wish to present in the manner you like and disregarding the rest, like the argument that the wealthy are somehow being burdened even more with taxes than they were by showing the percentage of total taxes they pay rather than the percentage of their income that they pay in taxes.

The Germans were at one time, too. They were exhausted.

Russia is not a third world country or second rate in technology. Full scale war has been off the table for a while because of MAD. That missile shield at this time is a bad idea. It has motivated them.

I'm really not interested in arguing with you, Buck. You don't argue in good faith. You just hunker down. Your support of Reagan is like religious faith.

My good Doctor, it seems that many in the present Presidential Administration are above the law.
They sold guns to Mexican Drug Cartels for crying out loud. A Federal Boarder Guard was killed with one of those guns. What idiot came up with such a asinine idea? Did heads roll in the Obama Administration?
Then they used the IRS selectively to harass people of faith. This also is illegal. Someone should be in prison over this deal.
Going back to the Clinton Administration. I remember the Waco debacle in which children were burned to death in a siege with military M-60 Tanks. I would agree the Branch Davidians were crazies but gas and burn children to death by Federal Agents?
Using Army Tanks against US Citizens? They should have just built a fence around the complex and manned it 24hours until they surrendered.
Then of course the home grown Terrorist action in Okalahoma City was a spin off from what happened in Waco. I would like to ask you how many in the Clinton and Obama Administration have been prosecuted and or held accountable?
We all can't blame it all on just one admins .

our US is world biggest / no. one exporter of Arms/Weapons Systems, no wonder their so much wars and dissensions around the globe.

Ouch, but I can understand the lack of desire to debate with a pugilistic pontificating pundit of pretentiousness.

They also shot his dog.
They would have had me in their wool right then.
OMG, I hoped the Federal Government had learned it's lesson then the Obama Admin goes and sells guns to the Cartels????

I don't hate the President but his administration is rogue.

Tell Buck Randy Weaver occurred under Bush, Sr.

There was a rogue ATF that had been working for a while. The same that set up Waco. But the Clintons had plenty of time to stop that murder. Their demonization of the victims is quite telling about them, and about their supporters.

Tell Buck to stick to religion. He is very good at that. This stuff, not so good.

He is probably mad at me.
