Comment Re:Current U.S. corporate tax equally fraudulent (Score 2) 173

American Revolution was fought over a puny tax, what was it 3 or 4%? The modern tax... theft system is completely out of control compared to those times.

Well, yes, the modern state infrastructure is also out of control compared to those times. Get rid of the highways and the standing military and national intelligence services and the space programme etc. etc. and you can lower the taxes.

They can't possibly check for everything. If you want to hide your communication, with modern electronics, there's just too many ways for DIY subversion of any measures such a regime could to impose on you. And the means to spy on people with human resources anywhere close to 1:1 are astronomical for any state.

But does that include cases where any sexual activity has actually happened, or does it include only those cases where there has been no contact at all and a close acquaintance of yours is fabulating? I'd assume the latter to be a proper subset of the former, but I'd be surprised if there were studies aimed specifically for that.

What adult in their right mind sleeps in the same bed with another grown person of the opposite sex, then gets suprised to be frisked? Maybe I just wasn't raised the same way.

I should guess you weren't, since the former hardly raised (or raises) an eybrow in certain times and places. Never thought I'd actually ever say that, but perhaps you may be proving the point of people calling for males to be taught to behave in a certain, better way, if you're making such mental leaps as assuming permission to do things that you weren't actually permitted to do, on the basis of your spurious perception?
