    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    It seems that most participants in this poll chose to have a better quality of life over the principle of being against excessively high taxes. There are three exceptions: those participants chose principle over selfish gain. Anybody who would sacrifice $95,000 for a higher ideal deserves an A+. Those who voted Option B in this poll but didn't make comments received a grade of B-. Keeping your mouth shut can sometimes save you a lot of trouble in life. Those who voted Option B in this poll but made comments made a C. I do admire your honesty but let's face it Option B was the easy answer. I can't give you extra credit for taking the easy way out. Those who commented in this thread but didn't vote will be receiving the grade of F and I will be guessing at what their answer would have been if they would have voted. I made many exceptions. There were some Libertarians and Conservatives who didn't vote. I gave them an incomplete and will be explaining the make up assignment a little bit later. These people will see an I beside their name. Wait patiently. Your grades will be posted within the hour.
    'Honey, kids...gather round...I have an announcement to make.

    As I told your mother earlier today, I now bring home only $30,000 per year...instead of the $125,000 I used to bring home.

    However, the great news is that I now do not pay any more taxes.

    Isn't that fantastic?

    Ummm...why are you all holding suitcases? And where is the furniture? And why is that well known divorce lawyer standing in our kitchen?'


    Yup, you 'A plus' types can go and live in your little apartments with your cockroaches and your 'ideals'.

    And I will take my 'C' (and my extra 95K) and live in a nice house with a swimming pool and a 'vette stingray in the driveway.

    Re: Which would you rather have?

    This is kinda a dumb question though.

    We all know (or should) that (barring nepotism or some such) earning $250k/year will be harder and more stressful than earning $30k/year.

    It's the balance between how much effort is required and how much reward granted that determines where you're most comfortable.

    Nope. It didn't. Stop making excuses or you will end up with an F.

    Re: Which would you rather have?

    I took the 'A' option, with the caveat that it came free, so essentially I bought all my time back for $95,000. I already have 21 acres with a house at lock-up and enough land cleared for a big garden and some animals. That $30,00 and, more important, all my time free will make me self-sufficient and living well.
    When does the first cheque arrive? I turned down a good prawn fishing gig and ordered some lumber.
