Comment Re:The Cxx that took my job should pay taxes (Score 4, Insightful) 388

When your goal is to reduce headcount, you should have to pay for it.

People who say this are morons...

If you make it expensive to fire people or lay them off (like they do in parts of Europe), then people are very reluctant to hire in the first place...

Companies will then do anything they can to avoid hiring anyone extra to start with...

No, you aren't an expert, and yes, a handgun does give me a decent chance.

An AK is not body armor, if he is busy shooting someone else, he isn't shooting me, and don't overestimate the accuracy of an AK, they are pretty bad in general.

Under 50 yards, I'm almost as accurate with my .45 as I am with an AK, and he won't see it coming.

"A country is more than an economy. We're a civic society."

What about that statement is wrong? From a simple economic point of view, if you have no monetary value, then go die in a ditch like a good citizen.

Except, that we ARE more than an economy, humans are more valuable than just what they provide to the GDP of a nation.

I don't see China leaping over themselves to allow Americans to fully own businesses there, yet we let them do it here. Either China needs to open up, or we need to shut them out, either solution is fine.

Or do you put it somewhere safe for two years, fanning it with a breeze of rage against perceived injustice, in an environment where there are no moderating influences, and feeding it with plenty of tinder-dry fodder, so that when you finally let it loose, it will be well-behaved and extinguish itself?

True, that point has been overlooked...

So take him out behind the barn and shoot him...

Oh, wait... he is a person...

I think I remember hearing from somewhere it was like 10% of the population.

I've read it is more like 2% of the population... but it probably depends on what you are calling "gay"...

There are the "out there and want you to know it" gays... then there are the "don't talk about, just do it" gays...

I honestly don't give a crap, I don't think Government should be telling people how to live nearly as much as they do... I'm just tired of having it thrown in my face every five seconds.

So you're gay, good for fucking you, have a cookie... I honestly, seriously, don't care...

I find Bernie Sanders interesting to listen to, and I disagree with many of his points, but not all of them...

I also do disagree with some of what Trump says...

We have gone WAY too far in rooting for our own team and anything the other side says is "evil". That's silly...

If we are going to require health insurance to cover everyone, we probably should have single-payer... We also probably do need a min wage increase, perhaps to $10/hr to start with...

That being said, Corporate Tax really does need to come down to 15%, but with it needs to go away a lot of the subsidies and deductions... The death tax also needs to go...

So I see upsides to both points of view, I just wish more people were moderate in the middle, being more interested in solutions for everyone rather than rooting for a team to win and another to lose...
