There is an awful lot of graft built into the system, and we can afford these things but choose to spend our money elsewhere, like blowing people up or funding genocide

This is old, but I feel it just became relevant again. So I'm posting it again.

Turns out Jeb Bush pays taxes in full.

That has me thinking. Has any other presidential candidates done the same? How about in prior elections? Is this so rare that a presidential candidate spent the last decade paying taxes in full?

#incometax #election2016
Jeb Bush released 33 years’ worth of tax returns, a record for a U.S. presidential candidate, and said his total net worth is between $19 million and $22 million.

I was reading through some of my old post and realize that I have forgotten a value that contributed to most of my success.

Taking responsibility rather than pointing fingers.

Time to revive that philosophy.
 
What ever happened to the world to make every problem in the world someone else' fault. If we spent as much time fixing our problems as we did pointing fingers we probably wouldn't have these problems.

The money from the law suits went to reserve accounts. The consumers didn't get any of it.

This idea that somehow a small adjustment in the reserves rate and suing a dozen European banks saved our economy is fantasy.

Most of the jobs that are "being created" aren't in sectors that the government has even touched.

Obama gave us back an auto industry in Detroit. He did that. The jobs with government contractors over seas, he did that. The uptick in residential construction, he did that.

He did help, but the other 90% of the jobs were unrelated to anything government did.

If we ever want to make any real, long term, measurable progress on the economy, we first need to except the fact that it has very little to do with law and a lot to do with accounting.
 
"Thanks to Wall Street Reform, there’s finally an independent Consumer Financial Protection Bureau with one mission: to protect American consumers. Already, they’ve gone after predatory or unscrupulous mortgage brokers, student lenders, credit card companies, and they’ve won—putting nearly $11 billion back in the pockets of more than 26 million consumers who’ve been cheated." —President Obama on the 5th anniversary of Wall Street Reform: http://go.wh.gov/Tf7L8g

I'm glad to see that feminism is in high tide again, but sad to think that it may ebb again in the future.

Maybe the biggest debate in feminism today should be how to maintain the pressure. I feel like feminism lobbying should be as constant and consistent as the NRA.

Oh snap. I could be in the top one percent with in the decade. Double oh snap. You probably will be too.

How much does it take to be in the top 1%?






$800,000 in assets...

so...

a house worth $350k, two Toyota Prius', and a government pension.

Damn you 6th grade English teachers! Damn you for your corporate greed! We must raise their taxes! Tax the filthy money pigs working for the electrician's union!

This guy has been walking miles to work for a decade. He even has a perfect attendance record. Meanwhile other folks are calling in because there was snow in the next town over.

This guy should be the patron saint of taking care of business.

I'm changing my stance on apologetic behavior.

The first mistake of every anti-Christian argument is generalizing a title given to literally thousands of religions. Each with it's own definition of what was written in not one, but hundreds of versions of a collection of books that can vary drastically from one version to the next. Not every version of the Holy Bible even has the same books in it.

Saying "Christians are this or that" is no different than saying "Europeans are this or that" or "accountants are this or that".

The only truth you can say about Christians in general is "Christians believe in a God named Jesus". Everything else has as many exceptions as rules. And there may even exist a sect of Christianity that would consider that debatable to some degree.

Even hell is arbitrary to Christianity. Some versions of Christianity believe hell to be a "self-induced state of being" others believe it to be "whatever those who go there make it". Some consider it permanent, for others it is temporary, some even consider it a metaphor.

And the last mistake of every conversation about Christianity is when Christians from many different religions come out in troves to provide the teachings from their version of it. God knows I've made that very mistake too many times on here and in conversation else where.

No Christianity debate can be final, as no one group of people can ever complete the points for every religion that calls itself Christian.

I still believe apologetic behavior can improve relations between Christians and non-Christians, but I don't feel this is my calling and it should probably be left to somebody who has a degrees in Theology and Philosophy.

A Christian denomination is an identifiable religious body under a common name, structure, and doctrine within Christianity. Divisions between one group and another are defined by doctrine and church authority. Issues such as the nature of Jesus, the authority of apostolic succession, ...
