Comment Re: Correcting myself (Score 1) 730

He isn't signing off on anything. He's complaining, offering his thoughts on an alternative, and saying "I'm am engineer" to lend his letter more weoght.

If anyone says "right. Just got a letter from a ransom who says He's an engineer, let's change everything without any further investigation" then THEY should be sued.

Good grief people.

It is not a moral obligation.

It is only a necessary evil....that should not be overly burdensome.

I actually pay my fair share of taxes, and happily. I do not seek out every possible loophole and try to game the system. But then again I realise my taxes go to (what Americans would call) social security that pays money to the poor, elderly and those unable to work due to health, my taxes go to pay medical bills for those poorer than me. My taxes also go to public schools, roads, fire fighters and policemen.

I am more than happy to pay more than people who are poorer than me and do not look to game the system because I can afford to pay more without unduly burdening my finances.

It's a sad day when the companies like Twitter are fighting for the US Constitution. Any time a government employee attempts to break the constitution they should be charged with treason and dealt with accordingly. Anytime Congress or the President break it, it should be considered an act of war and dealt with accordingly.

Time has proven again and again that the only thing the American government listens to is might. It's time to water the tree of Liberty.

Sure. Once Coal and Big Oil stop getting subsidies from the government:

Then why don't we go right ahead and give renewable energy the same amount in subsidied that coal and big oil have gotten for the last umpteen years and let them build their infrastructure before finally pulling them off the US government's teat.

After all, fair's fair. Right? We're all about capitalism and letting companies stand on their own two feet.
