    Depends on where that country was and who it was.

    China would not nuke it, and the chinese ability to project power more then a couple thousand miles from its boarder is still limited

    Canada has never lost a war it has been in. Heck we even burned down the White house ( admitedly we were not an independant nation at the time)

    Trickle down economics or Vodoo economics or Supply side economics is a theory of economics brought into the US during the Reagan admin. It failed then as it relied on Keynsian economics to make it work, just as it fails now when the debts of both the people of the US and the government of the US no longer allow for stimulus to work.

    I suggest going back to the economic theory of hard work, saving at least 5% of your income for retirement and minimising debt

    For some reason the portion of your post appearing above creates the mental image of a young lady in a pith helmet with an elephant gun.

    If you credit Canadians to burning down the White House, even though they were apart of the United Kingdom at the time, then do you also consider them to have lost the war of 1812? Either they have lost a war or didn't burn down the White House. Anyways, nationalism is stupid and foolish. People are people regardless of what country they live in.

    and your comments that are based on your inability to understand that fact renders the rest of your blather worthless.


    and yes envy is the main motivation of most of the "tax the rich more" nonsense that is spewed on these boards. In Kali's case it is patently obvious
    Really? Really? Can you explain yourself here? Just to fill you in on something you may not be aware of? I come from money and I suggest that in the future you know what the hell you are talking about.

    YOu on the other hand make posts about ME rather than what I SAY.
    You said it in a way that was a personal attack

    Trickle up? Are you kidding me? The answer is to put more POOR people to work!

    Well the point of this thread has lost it's barrings. Thread derailing wins again.

    Anyways here is a more comprehensive look at Trickle Down economics:

    Trickle Down economics was a Trojan Horse

    Trickle-down economics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    What is dishonest and ugly is your constant need to lie in order to make "your" unvalid point.

    The only real buying of votes? Come from the rich right where they buy votes via the back scratch.
