[quote]Relax, it's the Rant. People Rant [/quote] I am quite relaxed at the moment. [quote]Well who elected you thread moderator? [/quote] You seem to have a hard time reading words and making them mean something in your brain. Post away, I don't care, but if you post/speak without conside...

[quote] There isn't much debate in simple math.[/quote] Why did you choose the part where I disagreed with you, adding that it should be saved for another discussion, to respond to? I don't disagree with your original point, but it is not simple math, its tax policy. See my post above in respo...

re: Beginning guitarists: acoustic or electric? - OceanMan
[quote]Responding to a lot in that post, but mostly the idea of taking advice from Keith Richards...widely considered to be a world-class hack, [/quote] Wut. I mean seriously, you think the primary guitarist, in the fricking Rolling Stones, is a hack? I'm not sure it is even debatable, they are th...

re: New state law requires all ticketed events to be taxed- including athletics - OceanMan
[quote]It's debatable, but one side of that debate is absolutely wrong. Sales tax is the most regressive tax there is. Rich people spend a much lower percentage of their money on goods and services than poor people who spend nearly every dollar they earn. Thus the poor pay 10% of every penny they ea...

[quote]It's hard to follow an ideal that encourages people to not work and takes money from hard working Americans to enable them to do so. [/quote] I think that this is a temporary financial issue, and should be looked at as such. I just don't see how this specific example justifies broadening t...

[quote]Our state is so far behind over states in terms of overall tax policy[/quote] Which states specifically would you point to? I'm assuming maybe FL and TX but who else? [quote]We desperately need to broaden the base and lower the rate across the board...sales, income, property etc. [/quot...

re: New state law requires all ticketed events to be taxed- including athletics - OceanMan
[quote]First, sales taxes affect the poor more significantly than the rich. [/quote] I would say this is debatable, but not as it pertains to this discussion. [quote]So, your "redistribution of wealth" theory doesn't make sense. [/quote] This is pretty much accurate though. Anything that i...

re: I want to get into Wilco. Where do I start? - OceanMan
My favorite is sky blue sky. It's An incredible album and very underrated, not only in their catalog, but all around. It's hard to say this isn't Wilco at their best, and I've been listening to them since I was like 5. Having said that, like someone above me said, maybe just start at the beginni...

re: Beginning guitarists: acoustic or electric? - OceanMan
Acoustic. Try and get a student guitar, not one that only plays well with top of the neck open string chords. I actually learned on an old Gibson student guitar. It took a while, and sure at times it is downright difficult to play, but you got to get your reps in. I read something from Keith Rich...

re: I fell asleep during The Big Lebowski - OceanMan
at this point, it has been totally hyped to the point where you cant really avoid being let down. Sort of like Breaking Bad. A lot of people probably feel like they are missing something when they watch it, but don't want to be called an idiot for not absolutely loving it. Take this thread for examp...

re: More shocking, Spieth or Smylie - OceanMan
[quote]Smylie lost a lot of money yesterday[/quote] I think that remains to be seen. I would have to think the experience he earned over the past weekend will pay dividends over the course of his career.
