You cannot regularly exceed your budget and expect to remain operational. Governments are no exception. The problem here is that the politicians running things are borrowing on the backs of the taxpayer, not on their own.
The best way to get a job is to show up in person, hand someone a resume, and talk with them. While I don't have a problem with having a system that helps people when they're down, the current system just encourages dependence. It does not empower anyone. Ending your diatribe with arguments from popularity and authority doesn't lend much credence to your argument either.
You don't punish abuse of the credit card by upping the credit limit. You take it away and make the debtor work it off. In this case, I'd like to see this done to the institutional debtors, public or private, who've not paid back what was given to them by corrupt politicians who had no problem bilking taxpayers. Having those politicians serve some jail time wouldn't hurt either.
People don't need dependence on free toys like cellphones. They need jobs so they can buy their own if they choose. Having the opportunity to earn wealth of one's own and then choosing how to spend it is true empowerment.
An indentured underclass requires implicit and explicit enforcement from the state in order to exist. I don't think you'll find a single libertarian who wants that.
The point of tax isn't to punish people for being rich. It's to fund needed state operations as defined by its charter. In the case of the US, the state has greatly exceeded that charter. The last thing we need is yet another tax that reenforces this behavior. It's time washington works within a budget like everyone else. Once those ivy league lawyer brats learn to do that, then we can talk about what is needed and what isn't.
Yup, and they'll deny it treatment to the general public..
The adblock plus lists are nothing more than a collection of regex filters. It's more efficient than having the system parse 500kB+ host files every time there's a dns lookup.
The Lord YOUR GOD sayeth so. All you have to do is listen and believe. Why is that so hard?
I'm sure every ideologue out there wanting to brand their dogmatic bullshit as truth is doing the same thing.
Sounds much more productive than duplicating past achievements. Mining will be necessary to build a self sustaining economy in space.
Unfortunately, you're right. However, life is still a lot better in the USA than it is in India.
Agreed. There are plenty of reasons to avoid both machines, but the radeon chip in the list jumped out at me.
The radeon alone would make me go with the dell..
Great, so lets work towards abolishing affirmative action as the bigoted favoritism that it is.
Only to be replaced by what? Yet another dogmatic ideology that usurps freedom? As an atheist, I don't see this as much improvement.
