    You talk nonsense and then try to crack wise when you are not understood due to your own ineptitude with language and reason. But do give it a shot.
    How is that not understandable? Its straight forward from what I can tell. Maybe you can't read or you're playing dumb. I'm going with playing dumb but I'm open to the idea that you can't read.

    I've never heard anyone on the far right trumpet this idea. To whom are you referring?

    LOL, and the left never ever complained or raised a fuss about what the right was doing when the right had control? Let me guess, you watch a lot of CNN don't you?

    What about those who want the right to bargain individually, but are denied based on the union employer relationship?
    So, you want serveral police services in town?

    No, we do have private security agencies, we have private fire departments, and private schools. So, they are not monopolies. True, there is not much call for private police forces, but it is not true that they control the market in the way a business monopoly does. Police are hardly over paid. Sad that anyone would argue that they are.

    Please point to a specific instance where an individual has demonstrated that he would get a better deal on his own. I would like to see that.

    LOL, same thing as Henrin's post, but you took more words to pull it off. Try to work on your efficiency.

    you constantly complain about how bad the poor have it. that is whining. And yes, it is abusive to make the top one percent pay 40% of the income tax burden so people like you don't have to pay as much as you should

    I don't recall doing that either. Perhaps you can link where I have.

    And show that it is abusive. Would those paying 40% really want to be poorer? What have they lost? Where is the abuse? You do know that word has a read dennotative definition, right?

    So it should be easy for someone of your mental capacity then. Please, do explain what this means

    You want to balance the book by keeping things around you shouldn't. That is what you are doing..

    I suspect even you don't know what you wrote and cannot do so.
