    Re: Obama: No Deal Without Tax Hikes

    The government gives corporations a tort-liability shield. This is a special perk given by the government which allows people who hold stock in a company to escape liability they would otherwise have been jointly and severally liable for. Traditionally, partners in a company are always held jointly and severally liable for the torts of their partners, even if they had no involvement in them. This means that their personal assets of the partner who wasn't directly responsible for the tort can still be seized to compensate a victim, up to 100% of the injury. But in a corporation, the government steps in and deprives that victim of their rights to seek compensation from the partners in a corporation. Thus victims of the torts have their rights taken away by the coercive protection arrangement between stockholders and the government.

    Next time somebody says that the rich don't get more from the government, just remind them how many law suits those wealthy people have evaded thanks to government-back tort-liability shields. Anybody who has ever owned stock in a corporation has personally had their pocketbooks protected by the government.

    Just yesterday, you were agreeing with the Wall Stret Journal chart where it showed 16 million jobs created during the Reagan years.

    "Reagan generated 16 million new taxpayers" ~ Conservative

    That was before you changed to different data showing 17 million jobs were created during the Reagan years.

That is where it is looking like they're going to end up- doing nothing after having turned down trillions in possible cuts.
    no, that was a week ago, mcconnell-reid has moved quite a bit in recent days, now promising 1.5T in hard cuts

    Obama meets with Boehner, threatens veto of GOP plan - The Oval: Tracking the Obama presidency

    and that's the point---everyday the cuts grow, the tax stalemate remains the same

    ie, be patient

    bottom line---if mcconnell-reid is what the party in power wants, go for it

    it's a stinker, tho---mcconnell-reid isn't even dollar for dollar

    remember, the president's top priority is to get this roof hi enough to get him thru next november, he needs 2.4T

I do know that many grad programs find it difficult to find qualified kids from the US. I do know that the SAT is an easier test than it once was. I know that college professors bitch a lot about how kids today don't do any work.
    ... and I could go on.
