re: Next Steps after Ferguson? - Taxing Authority
[quote]-Get more black police officers.[/quote]Why is this necessary? The implication is that white officers are unable to do the job because of the color of their skin. That's an entirely bigoted position. ...

[quote]This is a terrible tragedy. It isn't a metaphor for police brutality or race repression or anything else, and never was[/quote]This. Nice find A-dub. Thanks for posting it....

re: The Events Last Night May Be a "Worst Case" Scenario for Race-Protesting - Taxing Authority
[quote]in terms of rioting/looting, for sure[/quote]The flip side of course is that Blacks vote democrat typically between 93-97%. That is a stunning lack of diversity of thought. And that lack of diversity... allows politicians to treat the entire community as a single group, playing to the lowest ...

re: The Events Last Night May Be a "Worst Case" Scenario for Race-Protesting - Taxing Authority
Nice summary SFP. [quote]they are legitimately fricking up their own community that they claim is in disrepair [/quote]I look at this in terms of investment. Is investing in that community a good risk? This reinforces the perception that it isn't. Unfortunately, this is behavior that keeps wealth...

re: Did Obama just troll the GOP? - Taxing Authority
[quote]Frankly, I'd settle for a POTUS who'd just do his job as described, rather than one who's obsessively preoccupied with being a childish troll. [/quote]Obama would fit in on this board quite nicely. Unfortunately, he's a president, not a message board poster. ...

How can anyone deny that electing Republicans doesn't lower unemployment? - Taxing Authority
Since being sworn into the majority in the House of Representatives in 2011, the unemployment rate has gone from ~10% to ~6%. Let's cure unemployment. Elect more republicans!...

re: How can you argue the Iraq War didn't save us from terrorists - Taxing Authority
[quote]Is this a troll? Or are you drunk?[/quote]Why can't it be both? Just figured as long as we were posting "government saved us from doom" threads, I'd add another log to the fire. We should start more wars in the ME. Last one seems to have worked. So lets' do more!...

re: Air Pollution in Los Angeles-1983 vs. Now-and how regulation isn't always bad - Taxing Authority
[quote]Just thought you guys might find this interesting-I know everyone hates the EPA here, but regulation can be a good thing too.[/quote]It certainly has it's place. But attributing the air pollutant reduction solely to "regulation" would be at least partially wrong. I'd reckon that the use o...

re: I'm looking for 12 million fellow Americans - Taxing Authority
[quote]Right but actually obama has increased deportations [b]are counted[/b][/quote]But that aside, it shows just how incongruent his position is. I suppose just like the individual mandate, ghey marriage, deficit spending, etc, he has "evolved" his stance for nakedly political reasons. [quote]...

re: Executive Orders by the numbers. - Taxing Authority
Silly. And we've been over this before. An executive order declaring November 23 "National Cheez Wiz Day" isn't the same as granting amnesty in opposition of passed legislation. We have some nice consolation prizes for you in the back. ...

re: I'm looking for 12 million fellow Americans - Taxing Authority
[quote]That is just more of the same[/quote]Nope. We don't effectively enforce the law. Haven't for a long time. I dated someone who had illegal family here in the early 90s. They had absolutely ZERO fear of deportation then. They certainly wouldn't now. [quote]the republicans (and democrats) h...

re: I'm looking for 12 million fellow Americans - Taxing Authority
[quote]What reforms do you think the GOP base would be ok with? [/quote]I don't think you'll find much opposition to enforcement initiatives. I'd reckon most would probably agree that the process to come here [i]legally[/i] is far too slow, expensive, cumbersome, and takes ENTIRELY too long. I'v...

re: I'm looking for 12 million fellow Americans - Taxing Authority
[quote]Right so you agree! the GOP base prefers do nothing to immigration reform. [/quote]Do you have a learning disabilty? There is a W-I-D-E gulf between amnesty and doing [i]nothing[/i].

re: I'm looking for 12 million fellow Americans - Taxing Authority
[quote]So you agree with me?????? [/quote]Doesnt seem like it. [quote]My premise: the GOP cannot stomach reforming immigration, i.e. the prefer to do nothing. [/quote]It's a silly premise. GWB and McCain proposed immigration reform back in 2006. just as now there is no appetite for amnesty by th...
