    And yet again, Apdst, you make no attempt to apologize, excuse or explain your offensive behavior... and that in itself is ****ing offensive, yet you're quick to jump up and condemn my actions and I was being sarcastic.

    My respect for you...

    And people wonder why our service members and public servants are being treated with little respect and honor, it's because people like you don't even wear your uniform with respect or honor..

    nope, simply point out that - like those who pay what they owe in taxes - they are simply doing what we as a nation have forced them to do for us.

    Both made the scarifice, and you're wrong, those that were drafted could have ran or been deferred or entered the National Guard to avoid the 'Nam; e.g., GW Bush, Clinton, Teddy Nudgent, Lee Greenwood, Muhamad Ali, thousands who went north to the maple leaf country, and those who could afford college. Prior to that, it was the draft that saved our arses from Nazis, Tojo, etc., and those that saved Korea from the chinese and north koreans.
    you won't get an argument from me that a draft wasn't necessary in WWII. and you won't hear an argument from me that those who took steps to avoid such service deserve no credit for doing so, either.

    I see that you are in Japan, are you serving, or is someone in your family in the military? if so, thank you.
    i see you're an army vet - did old reliable bring you here, or is that a coincidence? Feel free to wander on down to the military forum and poke your head in.

    high taxes, high regulatory burdens, compliance costs and high labor costs and so on and so forth. there are plenty of costs that companies have to deal with, and when you raise any of them you increase the incentive for them to find a way to avoid that cost. you'll note that at the same time as Auto Manufacturing jobs were dying in Detroit, they were growing in Kentucky. Jobs have been fleeing California and moving to Texas. Even Canada has gotten into the act, slashing her corporate tax rate to less than half of ours to attract capital away from us.

    so tax rates need to be lowered on companies. That will keep there here, even though many of them don't pay taxes and are getting refunds. So wait, the real problem is the compliance costs with tax code, so we need to make it easier and less expensive for them to get refunds... then the 60B will finally trickle down to us all.
    no, they need to pay taxes. but we should strip out all of the special loopholes deductions and shelters while lowering the nominal rate to keep effective rates at rough parity. that way everyone pays the same rate (as opposed, for example, to the current huge tax advantage that Amazon has over Target) and competition is allowed to work; while at the same time ensuring that we do not increase the incentive for all of our businesses to move off-shore.

    sure beats being run by bitter losers who want to use government to punish those who have down well in order to slake their envy and to salve their hurt of being failures

    Yeah, if you have no skin in the game you really don't have much reason to vote responsibly. It would be like letting street bums vote for the management at some company merely because those bums piss on the front lawns of the company and sleep on the park benches in front of the main entryway

    Seriously? This is how your knowledge works? This is your process of thinking? Is this supposed to be a response?
