But of course, it is all Bush's fault, due to the regulations and rules he put into effect
But nobody who needed to pay the pharma companies for said polio vaccine, because the Foundation was lobbying for more patent protection at the same time.
I call bullshit, you are not in a 50% tax bracket.
Because as a rich asshole you built your wealth on the backs of the citizens of the country and benefited from the services of the country to enable your wealth building and protected it.
Stop being a greedy fucker and pay what you are due. I am so tired of whiny rich assholes and their fan club.
OMG you are so oppressed, Want me to get you a new roll of twenties to blow your nose?
If you want to pay ZERO taxes, then go buy an island, and pay for your own military and security people as well as roads and infrastructure.
If it "ruined" your growth, it's only because you didn't try. As a wise man once said: it's better to have tried and failed than to have just failed.
Most of my public school education was a complete waste of time, but I didn't expect those people to help me. I learned computers on my own, read countless books on all sorts of topics on my own. Libraries, even sucky ones, are filled with tons of stuff you don't know.
I never asked for permission or for people to give me opportunities to try different things, I just did things that interested me. My programming teacher in high school talked to a local business owner and recommended me for a database programming job when I was 15. That was the first time I realized people would pay me to do stuff I enjoyed doing on my own time. None of that came from what the school gave me, but what I did on my own.
The only one who will ever help you is you. If that guy gave up on you, you're doomed.
And for those who are doomed: when I order something with onion rings and a shake, I don't need to be asked if I'd like fries and a drink with that.
only when you can get an epic amount of them. Car batteries are not deep cycle, they are there for a single short heavy load. you can only extract 20% of their capacity from them before you damage the battery by sulfating the plates. so if you need 100 Ah of capacity, you need 5 100ah car batteries. and no CCA is not the number you want you want amp hours... In most off-grid applications the load pulls the batteries down over several hours, usually at night, and they then have to sit partially discharged (or still being drawn from) until the sun rises and the charging process begins. Deep cycle batteries are meant to do this. Automotive batteries are meant to have sudden, heavy, but short discharges (starting the car) and then be recharged with high current immediately.
So you would need 5-8 times the batteries and interconnects to use car batteries than using real deep cycle batteries.
Smart and gifted kid? Shove them to the back of the class. Oh that not so bright kid that can run and catch really good? he is a superstar!
We worship the Low IQ and brawn. (NFL players for example) while ridicule anyone smart. It is a culture thing, and in inner city urban cultures being a smart kid get's you isolated badly as your peers try to make you feel as if you are a traitor.
It has always been this way, on top of that Teachers are scared to death of kids that are smarter than them, and will punish the smart kid. Our education system is set up for average and can not handle the two sides of the bell.
No it's not. business owners need to be forced to pay honest wages. Paying people wages that are so low that you can not live even in a squalor home is dishonest (minimum wages below $10 an hour)
Then you get even more dishonest business owners that pay their book keeper $12-14 an hour. That person went to fucking college and just because she is a woman you think you can pay her a pittance? Sorry, but being a business owner is not about being rich, it's about following a dream and making a living. you DO NOT forsake your employees so you can live more comfortably.
Right now the environment is ripe for employee abuse and has been for the past 10 years. Luckily I work for a guy that treats the employees right. he lives like the rest of us do, he gives guys raises every 6 months and even gives us all a profit sharing bonus every year 2 weeks before Christmas.
Want a good corperate example of Greed? Comcast.
Comcast has so much money they want to buy Time Warner.. WTF? why not put that money into Comcast and upgrade service and infrastructure as well as employee pay levels for the bottom 90% in the company? Every single customer of comcast's HATES the company, the quality of service, and the quality of the product. I have never found anyone that has said "I love comcast, they have the perfect everything!" The only reason they make money is they hold monopolies in 99% of their markets.
Fix the infrastructure, fix the service, fix your employees, fix the business. THAT is honest business, not what corporate america is doing.
"Almost everyone advances; the gap grows ever larger. It has always been this way; likely it will always be so."
Until the gap becomes very wide, then the poor kill all the rich, loot their estates and the cycle repeats.
Give it another 10 years and the gap will be getting near the,"let's form an angry mob and kill the rich guy, we can feed the whole city off of what is in his house."
But taking what does not belong to you is generally understood by almost every English speaker as theft - whether the theft is of a tangible item, the opportunity to economically exploit something you created, or even a person's freedom.
Again, not law. Since you are talking things with legal repercussions, it's easier to use the "official" definitions. Stealing a car to joyride in it, until it's out of gas, then abandon it isn't "theft" Which is why there's generally a separate law for it (GTA, from the game
