    I thought AT&T did make stinky phones.

    The US spends a huge amount on the military. A lot of it is wasted. If we mind our own business we can probably get more bang for the buck.

    I strongly believe their is a massive amount of tax cheating going on. That is why I favor adding auditors. Likewise, most regulations are self enforced because there are not enough regulators to check in every year and most of those stops are pre-announced.

    I have been in three unions, Retail Clerks, Railway and Teamsters. At no time did the union get me anything I could not get for myself. At no time did the union treat me with the respect my employer did.

    Union members are thugs. No better than the mafia.

    When you see someone who is making twice the local average wage complaining about not getting a "living wage" you know you are listening to a stupid and lazy thug.

    Thanks for the chuckle!! BTW, I have T-Mobile, and it's the same shit with them. I'd have to buy a transmitter to get all day reception at home.
    A "natural born Citizen" of the United States is a child born in the USA of two (2) U.S. Citizens. The parents can be Citizens by Birth or they can be Citizens by Naturalization after immigrating to the USA. But to create a "natural born Citizen" of the United States both parents must be Citizens at the time the child is born in the USA.

    Only if you are too cowardly to negotiate for yourself, or a slug that should have been fired yesterday.

    First, you just described the Laffer Curve.

    Now...how do you know that the 28 percent was below your "Sweet Spot"? Treasury receipts went UP when the Reagan rates were implemented. Maybe they'd have gone up more with further cuts. Or maybe they'd have stayed the same...imagine that! People benefit from lower tax rates, and the government revenue is not affected.

    Of course, that's not what liberals are about. They're about forcing and compelling and punishing. Your god Barry was on record as saying he favored a doubling of Capital Gains taxes, even though the PROOF is there that CUTTING them DOUBLED CapGains tax receipts.

    He doesn't want more money in government. He wants to hurt successful people. He's all about GOVERNMENT DEPENDENCE.

    Since he cannot grasp that without the productive paying IN so tax-consumers and freeloaders can TAKE...the system cannot WORK...he's obviously stupid. Like liberals are stupid.

    Corporate income taxes SHOULD NOT EXIST.

    Who pays them? "Corporations"? What are corporations?

    PEOPLE pay corporate income taxes. Consumers pay some of them; shareholders pay others...depending on the industry and the price-point of its products. And they can and have made viable businesses not workable. In other words, the business with its tax bill couldn't be made to produce a profit.

    Without a profit, a business DIES.

    Which meant owners, customers, employees and customers of that business...ALL...LOST.

    Since people pay taxes, and ONLY people pay taxes, TAX PEOPLE.

    Corporate earnings eventually go to PEOPLE. What abolishing corporate taxes would do, is stimulate the economy.

    In
    FICA shouldn't exist.

    AntiSocial inSecurity is a Ponzi Scheme.

    But as long as we're going to play...that is the ONE tax that SHOULD NOT be cut. Unless an individual is allowed to "opt out." Of course, you're not in favor of that...liberals are completely ass-backwards on EVERY tax and social issue.

    It's like standing on your head and proclaiming the world is upside down.

    Once again I totally disagree with you. I can't believe there are people that think like you.
