Comment Re:Pay your fucking taxes instead (Score 1) 174

The proportional amount of work requires increases as you increase your income relative to your starting assets

Now that's comedy gold, do you have more jokes like this? Since when is the amount of money you make in any relation to your workload? How much more work do you think Allen did compared to, say, a single mother working 3 jobs to make ends meet?

Give those criminal blacks and Mexicans a reason not to be criminal (i,e. something to lose) and watch your crime statistics plummet.

You think we don't have our share of poor people? We do. Ours just have food+shelter. Are they happy? Far from it. But they don't want to endanger what little they have and go to prison over nothing.

Comment TV show writers on strike. So? (Score 1) 198

That's like government administrators on strike. Question for 100: How do you notice it?

Quite frankly, a monkey could write the garbage we get fed these days. "Scripted reality", yeah, right, what kind of drugs do you have to be on to consider this to be in any way even remotely close to "reality"? In between we got court TV and other garbage that needs zero writer or talent by the actors, sorry, "genuine people presenting real cases".

Hey, how about a new format? Akin to American Idol, how about American Writer? All the various fanfic writers get to send in their scripts and we get to cringe at their Mary Sue stories for a change instead of the talentless bawling of teenagers who were told by mommy and daddy that they can really sing.

Try comparing your average "socialist" European country with the US and take a look at various social aspects. I'm not even talking about soft mushy things like "quality of life", just look at the expense for things like social security, internal security (i.e. police), along with factors like crime statistics, suicide rates and educational standard.
