I love how you pull stuff out of my replies that aren't even there. you start throwing mud from things that aren't even said and I am not just
talking about me, I have read all of your comments in this thread and you have done it a couple of times.
I give as good as I get. That's why I put this thread in the Political Mud Pit; I knew some people were going to come in slinging mud and I prefer to
simply return fire rather than Staff have to get involved. So if you're upset that mud got thrown in your direction, may I remind you what
SkepticOverlord had to say about this forum? Paraphrased, don't come crying because someone slung mud back at you after you started the mud
So, don't throw no mud, won't be no mud thrown.
the only one thing I agree with you on is that politicians in general don't do anywhere near enough for the money they are paid. I think it's
very hypocritical for you to call someone out on the constitution, yet call for the removal of the house. Like you said you can't just pick and choose
what you want.
Well, that's something I guess.
As far as being hypocritical, you might notice that i acknowledged that one cannot simply 'pick and choose' what parts to observe. I specifically
mentioned that abolishing the House would require a Constitutional Convention... which is Constitutional by the way... maybe you should read Article
Tax cuts are just a vote grab using blood money. that cut money have to come from somewhere and it wasn't the military. Job killing minimum
wage rise lol, maybe you should check out other countries In the world that do just fine with a much higher minimum wage than 7 dollars an hour. Have
you ever thought about why the US has such a low minimum wage??
Then by that reasoning, why not raise
the tax rates? Let's just tax everyone 100% and be done with it.
We don't because no one would work. People would just stay home, because the other part of that equation is that no one would get take-home pay and so
everything would have to be provided by the government. In short, communism is 100% taxation.
If the tax rate were zero, there would be no regulation on the economy and people could open businesses any time they wished. The down side of that
(pure capitalism) is that there would be no authority to control how people are treated because the government would have no one working for it... it
couldn't pay for anyone to work. There would really be no government.
I happen to believe a strong economy is more important that a powerful government. I am able to take care of myself, thank you very much. I don't need
some bureaucrat in Washington DC deciding for me what car to drive, where to work, how much to get paid, what to eat, where to live, what to think,
etc., etc., etc. With a strong economy people have the independence to provide what they need for themselves without listening to bureaucrats.
Lower taxes mean more money in the economy; higher taxes mean more money in the government.
As for the other countries, you might want to take another look. Right now the US has the most vibrant, growing economy on the planet. Those other
countries are struggling.
you can't be serious about the (D) comment, katie Hill resigned because she was called out for being gay, yet Jim Jordan still sits on his high
horse while he used to protected a pedo........
The Katie Hill story was a non-issue for me. I don't care if she got frisky with a staffer (as long as it was consensual, which it seems to be), and I
certainly don't care if she took naked pics. I saw them... looked them up... nothing to write home about. I can rattle off a dozen web addresses where
I can see more skin and more 'action' with frankly hotter women, without needing a search engine. I don't care about her sexuality; I care about her
policies... which, except for her farewell address, I admit I knew little of. That address didn't impress me, but then again she was pretty upset.
Not heard about Jim Jordan.
