    Talk is cheap. As is your ability to discuss such topics in a fluid manner.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    its great to sit back and pretend to be an expert on economics but it really only means something if you are able to prove it.

    Its like the cold calls I get from guys who tell me they can triple MY money in a month. I ask them why they need MY money if they are so good-they should be rich enough not to have to make cold calls anymore

    You are not here even ten minutes.

    Next thing we know, TD is posting about his success IRL. Grow the **** up man. If you want to discuss the topic, discuss the topic.

    Good evening, Polgara.

    Too bad about the prizes.

    The Constitution doesn't deal in tactics. Right now, both sides have decided that shutting down the government is the best option. Either side could give in and open the government up. All Constitutional.

    No I would say one side has decided to make unreasonable demands to keep the govt. open. Demands that have nothing to do with the CR.

    The only ones shutting the government are the Democrats. That is indisputable.

    I'm not sure it's a great idea to call the idea that producers charge what the market will bear "ridiculous".
