But he said he would stop responding to his posts!!! This definitely adds a lot of weight to the seriousness of this argument!
We need to take these emphasized statements seriously. If somebody states something incorrectly, here, woodworkers need to unite and don their white capes with face hoods for fear of just being viewed as a bunch of whittling hacks with no real life skills! These lifestyle threatening off-the-cuff comments cannot be tolerated and shouldn't be taken lightly.
Anybody have plans for a wooden cross?

I'm going to quit responding to your posts. Time and time again I and others have corrected your errors of fact and you never change. I have to assume that you deliberately ignore the facts to generate controversy.

The trouble is already projected by many of the participants here. I just enjoy reflecting the same garbage.
You need a new nickname as that one has a bad reputation, big time, on Usenet. Your babysitting fits the description of the same kook.

Then why are you performing this function?
We got Mikey putting in "Bullshit" every post and we got Bill trying to scold us into good behaviour.

I would say that the REAL inequity is that some of those 49% who pay no taxes are richer than you or me. As for the poor paying no taxes, certainly there is some abuse in the system at all income levels, but personally I have no problem, for instance, with a widowed single mother making minimum wage at Burger King not paying any income taxes.

Define "richer". If you mean money in the bank, well, we don't tax wealth (shh, don't tell BHO). We also don't tax income on certain municipal bonds, because holding them is deemed to be a good thing. If you want to tax them, fine, but understand that many more municipalities will go under as a result. These things have consequences.

I do. To be a full member of society, *everyone* should have skin in the game.

Perhaps another program to supplement her income would be in order.
But giving people a pass on paying (even a slight amount) in taxes is counter-productive. She could probably afford a dollar per week. That dollar would give her a stake in federal expenditures and, hopefully, she would help pester the congress-critters to reduce spending.

Having had help gettting were I am, I am sure that such a statement is a bad joke for many who didn't have the same type of help. Cain is a flash in the pan, a true American politician. Next he'll write a book how he almost won the presidency. He has nice slogans and appeals to the simple minds that think as simplistic as he does. Just wait until more real economists talk more about his 9-9-9 plan that'll suck the life out of poor people.

Sets see here Han do you want to share your wealth with me? Probably not. Corporations which are made up of people and create jobs for people should not be taxed at all. We don't want to bite the hand that feeds us.

I am paying my fair share of taxes, as far as I can tell. I support in various ways those around me. I have also offered (maybe in words that were too obscure) my Akeda dovetail jig for any reasonable price, since I didn't like it.
Corporations are structured in different ways. Some loose money, some make a profit. Seems difficult to me to structure them so as to always equitably remunerate ALL who contribute to the profit (if any). Look at the car manufacturers. Because of the excessively adversary positions between workers, management and investors everyone has lost lately. But how do you make things really equitable??

I like Vonnegut alright. He's able to draw things to a ridiculous level. But it would be nice to give people equa or at least similar chances at making a life for themselves.

Vonnegut is a master at his craft. Nobody has a sense of humour like his..very unique. I have been a fan for years and he's the only author (besides Camus) whose books I have read several times.

You make things equitable by looking at the world through the corporate MBA's greedy glasses. Like that shit that GM is pulling these last couple of years. They compete by offering lower prices on new cars, like Malibu, then completely rape you when it is time for a brake job... and after market parts voids all warranties of course. My close friend manages fleets of cars for a large leasing company (77,000 cars at last count) and tracks all maintenance costs. GM products through the roof. Not in terms of break-downs, but parts costs. And get this: A Canadian built GM car, when bought in the States, then brought back to Canada, will have its warranty voided.
Pass me the Vaseline PLEASE.

Unless Canada is different GM gains very little by you having your brake jobs done at the dealership. IIRC the "cost" of parts for a brake job was around $40 back in the 90's. None of the remaining profit on those parts or labor went back to the GM. Not sure how fleets are handled as they get pretty good purchasing perks but the standard owners manuals DO NOT require GM parts for maintenance items as long as they meet minimum requirements.
I cannot believe that buying a GM car in the US and taking it back to Canada voids the warranty. I could believe that if you want the warranty honored you have to take it back to the US. Think of all the tourists that would loose their warranties for visiting Canada. AND if you think this is exclusive to GM you might want to look at all the manufacturers and your auto insurance policy concerning traveling to foreign countries. My insurance policy does not cover my traveling into Mexico 250 miles away.
