Comment Re:Why is Croatian labor less valuable? (Score 1) 68

The real market price is different in England vs Croatia.

But why is this the case? Why is Croatian labor less valuable than English labor? Does the difference arise from ocean proximity or from proficiency in the language of the economically powerful United States?

Why do you think income inequality should be fought by first forcing consumer prices to be the same instead of making income equal?

Says the guy who never planted enough trees to even out his CO2 footprint even for a couple of decades.

California Conservation Corps 1990/91 Also certified in Landscape Construction and planted / landscaped for 5 years after that.

*Suck it*

And yet you failed at evening out your CO2 footprint - because your fucking "solution" sucks as bad as you do. Thanks for proving my point.

Imagine Amazon selling a product in California at higher prices just because we manage our economy better than Alabama? People in Alabama should ascribe and work to a better life like a Californian.

There's also this thing called the law of conservation of energy. You're consuming one form of energy to store another, and doing it inefficiently at that. .plant.trees.

You don't even understand his point. He's not proposing to make charcoal as a form of energy, but to sequester the CO2 in the trees. Because just planting trees only delays the problem a few decades until the tree tree is grown, then it will die and release all that CO2 again.

This sort of infantile behavior is the stock play we see over and over again from governmental agencies that are in danger of not getting as much money as they would prefer.

In response to the infantile behaviour of the Republicans who shut down government in 2013 because they didn't et what they wanted, with nobody getting any money. The same Republicans who still can't get what they really, really want: to repeal Obamacare. Preparing for the hissy fits of childish Republicans is not childish.

Quit pretending that one party is better than the other

Stop pretending both parties are equally bad. Republicans are worse in every way. And the "independent" parties all have major flaws too. And the real independents who won't get into any of those parties are even worse - why would the other parties not accept them.

From TFA:

Friday is the day the current federal stopgap funding bill expires. The EPA apparently worried that Congress wouldn't pass a new continuing resolution to fund the government, and preemptively planned to end the Open Data service, according to the contractor managing the site, 3 Round Stones in Arlington, Virginia.
