@Setanta,
He is a pointless poster who doesn't contribute anything to the posts but minor picking points that turn into a full fledged debate. It is the stupidest tactic I have seen here. There is no substance to his posts.

Baldimo, you're the first person I gave an up vote, as I choose my votes wisely. I am careful in when I vote and if it's emotionally inclined or not.

@Baldimo,
Yes, I am saying that. When do you think roads appeared? Government appeared when humans formed tribes.

Are you implying that no one but the govt is capable of building a road with concrete or black top? No one but the govt knows how to tie rebar together and pour concrete over the top of it?


And who is going to build that road from the store to OMSigDavid's place?

Quote:

I can tell you that I know how to pour concrete and finish it as well. Spent an entire summer working for my uncle, all we did was pour sidewalks and driveways.

Stop for a moment and think where they driveway ended. Think real hard. I'll bet even you can figure it out.

Does this truly stupid argument have any relevance whatever to the o.p.'s original argument and intent for this thread?

@Baldimo,
Someone who should be a hero of yours came up with the interstate system. Until then industry wasent interested in building roads. Of course now that government has built up the hiway system big business is ready to take them over and charge people to use what their tax money built. Do you recognize the nick name Ike?

Poverty is not a form of punishment. If any thing it acts as stimulus for the poor, to remain in school , receive a solid, useful education and then obtain a job that is fulfilling .

Jesus H. Christ, Miller...walk in the other person's shoes for a while before serving up this simplistic pap as reasonable expectations.

Working one's way up from what some have as a starting point is not the piece of cake you seem to think it to be.

And while I do not know your circumstances, you sound like one of those people born on third base...acting as though they have hit a triple.

If you honestly think poverty is a stimulus for the people living in poverty to remain in school...get a solid, useful education...get a job...and be relieved from poverty...you are living in la la land.

If we find a triple,
are we supposed to HIT it ?

Apples and oranges Frank. One is TECHNOLOGY, the other POLICY.
I also dont believe that 10% of ones income is "a few minor taxes"And maybe if they just a wee bit less they wouldn't be so inclined to squander it on PBS, the environmentalist whackos and $3000 toilet seats, not to mention we might have to cut back on their salaries.

It would require a federal agency to keep records. Wait.... that's what the IRS does.

It certainly wouldn't take 93,000 god damn employees, 74,000 pages of laws, and BILLIONS OF [email protected]#K$%G to do it.

If private business did that when it came time to collect what was due them they'd be OUT OF BUSINESS...FAST.

Yeah, right. I wouldn't woory about getting stuck in the mud. I'd worry about the 65,000+ dangerous bridges in the U.S. that haven't been fixed by the government.

First of all there are over 150 million tax paying entities that need to be policed. 93,000 isn't that many at all.

Congress writes laws. You seem to keep forgetting that.

No, you can't go to jail based on a policy written by a cabinet officer. You can only go to jail when Congress authorizes something by law.

If only we paid less in taxes we could fix more bridges. After all, private business does stuff all the time without getting paid.
