[quote]I figured about 25% of their check goes to Nonc Sam. Assuming single male. I know thats the minimum I had taken out when I was single. [/quote] Thats exactly why you leave taxes out. It's a hard variable to normalize. 1) someone making minimum wage is not in the 25% tax bracket even m...

[quote]no. actually its exactly what religion is. people had no idea what was going on in the natural world around them, so they made up gods to explain it. [/quote] True or not is irrelevant. At the end of the day this bill is simply a state attempting to protect 1st amendment rights. Un...

re: WaPo back to Meh Russians today--bigly - Volvagia
[quote]Do you think if the RNC servers were hacked the RNC would have come across as squeaky clean?[/quote] It is certainly unlikely to be any worse than the portrayal the mass media already assumes them to be. So all the hacks showed were how full of shite the Dems were with all of their high...

re: Let's say Kennedy steps down, and Roe v. Wade gets overturned. - Volvagia
[quote]The other irony is that welfare as a means to alleviate poverty is actually not a large percentage of the federal spending. We spend far more on corporate welfare[/quote] It's only ironic if you equate welfare dead beats to have collectively similar economic value to this country as even o...

re: WaPo back to Meh Russians today--bigly - Volvagia
What I find hilarious is that there is no indication of any accusation of interference other than spilling out what the Democrats were doing behind the scenes. Don't even try to claim that they were smear forgeries, but that they were legit stolen emails. And then try to imply that the Russi...

re: All characters you'll see in Avengers 3 revealed - Volvagia
I feel like the first movie will be space centric, with the battle coming to earth with the Guardians in tow. Probably the climax will be the fall of Asgard/stealing the tesseract depending on the state of it after thor 3 (I know nothing about the comics, or even if this is expected to follow...
