One last time, and try to pay attention this time. Corporations DO NOT pay taxes; they simply collect the $$ from us and send it to the government. WE the people pay all of the taxes.

For example, if you raise the taxes on xyz corporation, they will simply raise the prices of their products/services to keep their bottom line the same. They have to if they want to make a profit. Prices have to go up to cover the company's obligations. It has happened time after time after time, to the point where I thought everybody with half a brain would have gotten the concept by now.

Nobody in the whole universe knows what a socialism is, not even socialists themselves. No matter how you define it there will always be somebody who says you're wrong. They won't even accept the definition given by recognized socialist organizations.

Anyway, Hillary has described herself as a "progressive" in the old sense (meaning early 20th Century). Anybody care to define THAT?

Yep, we're turning the clock back hundreds of years with this crap. Disagree with the majority and get put in prison or executed. And they call themselves "scientists"! They don't know what a scientist is. Most here don't, either.

If an idea can't stand on its own without silencing opposing opinions, then it's not much of an idea to start with.

That's insane. The thugs steal from the poor more often than they steal from the rich, mainly because they are close by and usually unarmed. There are thugs out there who will kill you for a few dollars. They don't care who you are or how much money you have.

And far, far more blacks are killed by other blacks than by law enforcement, despite what the mainstream media would have you believe.

I know a lot of cops. There are rich ones, poor ones, black ones, white ones, and everything in between. Most are salt of the Earth and a few shouldn't be trusted with any authority at all. They're just like everybody else trying to do a job and make it to retirement.

I'm satisfied with my cable company giving me 50. I'm averaging 66 any time of day when I check it. Apparently nobody else near me is using cable for internet. The one time this year when it went down was because of a fiber miles from me being cut.

I'm sure as time goes by they will go up and up and up with the speed. They always have, even without me asking.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
