Not when you are living in a police state.

Yes I agree this may be happening.

But for different reasons.

The Left and Right, have criminalized misbehavior, in both the Democrat/Liberal Controlled Schools, and Conservative Police Forces.

Normal Childish, and Adolescent misbehavior, now has the School Administrators calling the Police, for the Administrator's Legal Protection from The Parents accusation. The Police can only arrest the student, for the Police Officer's Legal Protection from The Parents.

Conservative Police Forces cannot now, take a miscreant child/adolescent back to the parents, for proper 'Parental Justice', as in the past. The Police must protected themselves from Legal Action and Accusations from the Parents, and ARREST The Children/Adolescents.

See a pattern?

As always. The Liberal/Left Wing Solutions to Real Problems . Is worse than The Problems.

They also don't know what race the owner of the restaurant is, or that the place has a bunch of regular black customers. But any time a non-black, in this case Hispanic female, makes a decision about a black person that doesn't go the way they want, it is racism in the eyes of the black person. Until we can get past that, there can't be any healing.

Of course their at ...ists in all groups.

Had an argument last week, at a train station, with a Black Racist. Shouting his hateful and evil bigotry, about a race, not his own. He stated Black people could not be Racist, nor be held to the same level of responsibility of White People. Meaning Black people are inferior to White People. Yes, he really believed that.

It was fascinating, that he was agreeing with The KKK, regarding Black people, and couldn't understand it.

Deciding, as a White Person, to treat him as an equal (don't believe he was used to this). I firmly responded, as if he was a KKK type. Stating he was a vile, evil and hateful bigot. His response disclosed he was not used to being held responsible.

After this was over. Another Black Man can over to me, shook my hand, and said Thank You.

Question: If these Hateful and Evil People in the restaurant were White, and Shouting Ni...., and other racist rants against Black people. Would there have been a different response, besides silence?

2. Corporate taxes - up, up, up! Find a reasonable level of "reward" for corporations and tax the living buh-jeebers out of the rest of the money (Increase in pie dish diameter)

Corporations do not pay taxes.

The consumer does. By the pricing for the goods or services. The Corporations just 'Collect' the taxes from the consumer.

If you raise Corporate taxes to an unsustainable level, for the Corporations Profit:

The Corporation moves to a Lower Taxed Country, and the Original Workers lose their jobs.

Or the Corporation ceases to exist (it only exists for Profits), and workers lose their jobs.

Economics 101.

Gary you have created a straw man argument, I know you know better. As far a estate taxes, IIRC, Jefferson argued for them as a means to prevent capital from accumulating in too few of hands and precluding others from having access to it. A strong argument can be made that others than the heirs may deserve a shot at using the capital.

Who decides, who deserves? The Conservatives? Why not?

Oh and yes, read the manifesto (and Das Kapital) as part of my Poli Sci bachelors, along with Machiavelli (The Prince), Hobbes (The Leviathan), Locke (First and Second Treatise of Government), Rousseau (The Social Contract), Michels (Political Parties), Rawls (A Theory of Justice) and quite a few others.

Very good starting point for Discussions. Pro and Con.

As for Мишель...

Understanding Religions Impact, again Pro and Con. Does not mean one accepts a Supernatural Being. As Мишель correctly points out.

Actually, its not even that. I work with a lot of women and I've literally never seen one cry. So the real question is, what is going on is Simon's workplace that reduces women to tears so often? The reality is, women rarely ever cry for no reason.

Sounds like there is a bad working environment that urgently needs to be addressed.

Well it could be both. If the work environment is hostile, its not unlikely that it affects men as well. Who are then denied a healthy emotional outlet because 'men don't cry'.

Agreed. Men and women get just as upset as each other, the acceptable ways of expressing it are just different. Unfortunately for men, crying is actually good for you as it rebalances the chemicals in your body and is cathartic.

I hope Simon is ok as it does sound like he is not working in a healthy place.

Cultural or DNA?

Doesn't make any difference, regarding treating Women as 'Incapable', because of any tears.

MajorKong...

Yes. I do understand, who wrote, when they wrote, why they wrote, and what they wrote.

Why did you believe I didn't?

Understanding that nothing that Jesus of Nazareth said, or did, was written down contemporaneously:

As I believe you know: This is not unusual, regarding what we now believe to be Factual History. This includes Ancient Greek, Macedonian and Roman, Events and Personalities. Some were written hundreds of years after the events and people involved.

Much of History, as they say, 'Is a story agreed to'.

When referring to Christian Tenets. I am referring to the Philosophy and Words attributed to Jesus.

Not the later 'Theology'.

Yes, those slices need to be pared back. But to shrink the interest slice, instead of a 15" pie tin, you are going to need an 7" pie tin. That may be a bit abhorrent to a tax and spend liberal.

You bet!

Actually Gary, I share your concerns about the size of our national debt, what it does to us now and what it will do to future generations.

You didn't mention corporate tax rates. You didn't mention tax shelters and loop holes. I know someone who bought a slummy hotel once to avoid paying taxes that year. It was back in the 70's and I don't know if such behavior would still be legal now, but it made an impression on me as a child.

I wish I had an easy answer...

Flat Tax? No Tax Shelters nor Loop Holes.

Everyone pays the same percentage. Understanding (since I am not a 100%'er in anything), perhaps a 'cutoff' for Lower Income Persons, and 'Startup Businesses'.

Edit: Also, Low or No Taxes Initially, for Factory's Relocating back to The West.

Using 3rd Grade Math: How much Revenue is needed. Divide by Number of Workers and Businesses. Then you know what percentage is need for both.

Joblessness? Increase the Factory's and Economy of YOUR Country, or Group of Like Minded, Law Abiding, and Ethical Countries. This will also increase Revenue.

Regarding the USA. After the above: Legalize ALL Immigrants (Excepting Felons). This will increase Wages and the Power of Private Unions.

Workers of the world, unite!

Understanding this is also a Utopian Thinking Idea (Politicians and International Capitalism will never give up their Power - Voluntarily):

Just an Idea.

OzzFan...

It would mean we're likely progressive in our thinking (liberal), but pragmatic in our application of spending money.

Excellent analysis. I would add 'Power tends to...'

What would our brains show, if asked the same questions?

Dancing monkeys vs chinchillas? :-P

[quote]Religion is without a doubt humanity's most successful idea ever.

It is very strange to describe mass insanity and organised fraud as “humanity's most successful idea ever”.

The problem with many "good' Religions. Are the Imperfect and/or Evil Humans running them.

I personally have no problem with the Tenets of Christianity.

Just a note:

I have apologized to OzzFan, for my misinterpretation of him, in a different Thread.

Not my first apology, of course.

Only a Brainless (or worse) person believes they are always correct.

BTW: Where are 'Their' apologizes regarding False and/or Mistaken Assumptions?

No place. Their 'Type' are incapable of simple ethics.

Hi Sarge...

Everything OK?

Past history is no guarantee of future performance. So good past performance is not indicative of future good performance, but rotten past performance seems to be the norm at predicting future rotten performance.

sigh



SIGH.......


Absolute power corrupts Absolutely .....SIGH :-(

Hollywood = Babylon

Skill's needed for C.E.O are not the skill's needed for running a country , why ?

Company's are profit governments are about society = people organisation

Which is why you don't place an Academician in The White House.

2nd and 3rd worst Presidents: Wilson (Academician) and Obama (Academician).

James Buchanan was the worst, of course. Different reason.

What if you tend to be Liberal, regarding Social Issues., and tend to be Conservative, regarding Economic Issues?


This quite funny to me, because this is how I see myself. Yet your recent posts to me indicate you believe me to be 100% liberal when in fact I identify more with Libertarianism (with a few notable exceptions).

My 'Bad'.

I do apologize.

I am a Left Winger when it comes to understanding the Foundations of most Problems. But do not agree with most of their 'Solutions'. And especially the Foundation of their 'Solutions'.

If I understand how you describe yourself. Would we be considered Schizophrenic? :) :) :)

What would our brains show, if asked the same questions?

OzzFan...

You have disappointed me. Thought there might be some hope for you. Regarding an Intelligent Back-and-Forth Discussion.

Clyde there is so seldom forth from you that discussion is impossible.

Do understand.

But you have to understand.

My attackers, which include you, do not understand this:

Although your silly attacks, and false ascertains, may succeed in silencing others, in your little, and shallow thinking universe.

Your, and others of your type. Obsessive Inner Need to Silence and Ridicule, those who are not you:

Shows me I am correct in my assessment.

I will continue to respond to your, and others, obviously desperate attempts at Ridicule, Childish Attacks, and False Ascertains.

Why not. I find your type fascinating.

Sorry.

They are a break from any Intelligent Discussion.

Do they understand how silly they are?

Nope.

Can they stop their childishness?

Nope.

Do they need help?

Yep.

Gary a good call. Clyde does respond a lot like the old game, The legend of Zelda.

I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems.

We, in the PM's, are...

Why do you say you in the pm's are?

Well, a few do take your words seriously. I tell them don't. Just
continue monitoring, and shake their heads in disbelief.


What makes you believe that?

You, and the others, really have no understanding how you sound.

Can you elaborate on that?

Cheerio :) :) :)

I would appreciate it if you would continue.

Sorry... Couldn't help it.

Maybe your plans have something to do with this.


ROFL!

As many people are.

Using the US as an example.

How does the brain react, of those in The Middle, who can vote for either Democrat or Republican?

Was the study conducted, only using those with 100%, or so, Conservative or Liberal views?
