  1. Are you bad at math? you do know that single payer is cheaper than current system, real question you be asking is where does that money come from? But in any case you know the answer taxes, but what are you health care premiums now? The go away and you save way more than you pooay unless you are in the top 1% then you pay more, maybe way more but that also addresses the other huge problem we have wealth inequality. If we don't do single payer health care how would you address the wealth inequality?
  2. Pot can't everyone a great driver, some people shouldn't be driving.
  3. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov//petition/reschedule-marijuana-fda-recommendation-dea Reschedule marijuana per the FDA recommendation to the DEA.Top federal health officials recently told the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) whether marijuana should be reclassified under federal law, but it is not yet known what that recommendation entails. Make public this recommendation and act on it.
  4. I'm voting for and supporting Bernie, I live in the real world where people win elections and the GOP is unacceptable.
  5. AshleyXI, on 07 Dec 2015 - 5:23 PM, said: "No let's not. I don't think that where one goes to school reflects on one's knowledge or ability. Presumably, you think it does? Or you think I think it does? Because you like stereotypes?" How conservative of you, you inject where you went to school then pretend like you didn't, just why did you point out that you went to private school?
  6. Care to pick this up in the NHB, unless of course it's too sourly for you there......I posted this there days ago, but i forget you went to special, err I mean private school....
  7. So government itself is an illegal act in your opinion, I disagree BTW.
  8. So you would disband the standing army? Shutdown the FBI? Why is it "legal" for states to take personal property without due process? In any case I didn't ask if it were legal, I asked if it were "stealing" in the same sense that you claim I support "stealing" are all taxes stealing or not?
  9. No. Now that I have answered a question, Is all taxation "stealing"?
  10. As a young man in college I was not always the most diligent student. One weekend, near the end of term, was particularly eventful and I found myself on Monday morning sitting, looking at a Dynamics final and no memory of any of the fine formulas we had studied that semester. Then I remembered F=ma. From that kernel I was able to derive all of the formulas I needed and ended up doing pretty well. More importantly, I realized the importance of fundamental concepts; I found that if one has a good understanding of core principles the smaller details are easier to work out. This led me a few years ago to ask myself, aside from the individual policies which align my thinking with “liberals”; why am I a liberal? After some consideration I arrived on four succinct statements, which I believe also gave me some insight to what motivates the “other” side. I am a parent. As a parent I will do anything within my power to advantage my child. I am a citizen. As a citizen I believe it is vitally important that we write rules that prevent that. It is only natural that parents do all they can for their children, however as wealth accumulates this presents a threat to democracy. This is the threat that concerned Jefferson when he spoke of the need for inheritance taxes, not as a form of revenue but a means to protect the democracy from citizens that might become too powerful, and then threaten the will of the people. It is easy to see how this has become the case in America today. The dangers of inherited wealth to our economy are not unlike monarchy to the health of any nation, when power is derived from birthright rather than one’s labor it is more often foolishly applied. As more and more of our economy becomes “inherited wealth” it becomes more of a target for con men and less a tool for innovators. The world’s financial power has been diverted from improving the human condition into money making schemes designed to enrich those who create them. I do have some specific suggestions that I feel would be helpful long term: Public financing for public elections Flat rate Social Security Tax, first dollar to last all forms of income Index minimum wage to the average increase in CEO pay for the S&P 500 (This is a re-posting by request.) 0 “The most recent projections from OMB and CBO indicate that, if current policies remain in place, the total unified surplus will reach about $800 billion in fiscal year 2010, including an on-budget surplus of almost $500 billion.” Alan Greenspan March 2, 2001.
  11. There has been a bit of discussion, I thought I would clear up a few questions. First off Ashley, by all means, let's put your private education against mine which came from one of the worst public schools in one of the worst states in in the union, my education is a result of my curiosity are you a curious person Ashley? Want us to find out? Most people don't think about Monarchy very much, except when they are dreaming of their Prince Charming, (Ashley r u there?), I should not do this but I find showing an open is a good way to get things started, so I will share that I have spent a few years doing some "inside work" so I tend to see the ego as an issue in most things and I feel it makes people for the most part to underestimate others, I believe people tend to look at history like they do their own lives and they think the world has "grown up" that we have out grown concepts of divine appointment to power. I believe this is dismissive of thousands of years of political systems. I believe that conservatives are in part driven by the concept that those with wealth should be allowed to use that wealth because they have it. That people offering reasoned positions to the contrary are interfering in some way with the natural order which deemed that "they", not "you" possess the money, often expressed as "It's not your money!" Furthermore the current ruling class operates as Monarchies always have, to hold and consolidate power through marriage. Please refer to Born Rich, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8o46HH-TfNY if your teachers didn't teach you about this, or you are not really that curious. As far as my reference to "death tax" and "flat tax" (you miss that one Ashley? I apologize if you have a learning disability which caused you to miss it, I wouldn't want to be rude.) I have read 1984 and I am not afraid to take the battle to the enemy.
  12. Conservatives do not support policies that curb private advantage, anyone can claim "to believe" whatever, however all GOP support all policies that make the rich richer and money more powerful, the death tax is a good example, monarchy was the prevailing form of government for centuries and many people today still support it, they are called Republicans. I will say your teachers did a fine job of teaching you to count.
  13. maybe Democratic Socialist, I don't worry about those that don't understand
  14. yeah bludog I didn't get the question either, that's why I never posted a response to Ashley.
  15. Looks like they found a solution to the problem of poor people voting.
  16. I missed that, he did say halogen, WTF! How funny.
  17. Another Award for Ben in the 65 year history of the Director Guild's Award 90% of the time it's winner wins the Oscar, this year he wasn't nominated guess he won't be winning then. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/03/entertainment-us-directorsguild-idUSBRE91203820130203
  18. Here's an update on this, I always thought this would be a big story. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/moviesnow/la-et-mn-is-argo-poised-to-deliver-a-dga-shocker-20130127,0,5482880.story of course we all know about the SAG Award right? http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.

    Being offended does not make one correct.
