Check close there Dann, I left one for ya.
What did you leave me? A Pavarotti? A paparazzi? What's the difference, no need to be precise you're always right no matter what that's all that counts.
But you'll never leave with Obama in charge right? How would you know for sure when it's paranoia or imminent doom? What are you sayin, you can't get caught off guard?
Clinton: lowered capital gains tax: fed tax revenues increased.
Bush: lowered capital gains tax: fed tax revenues highest ever
Obama : wants to jack up capital gains tax to redistribute, give away, pay off. Wreck the economy further in pursuit of socialism. Brilliant.
So you can't even tell when a President is bad for the country, but you'll know exactly when to high tail it.
There must be a middle ground here. Something realistic. Jpete seems to be a constitutional absolutist; great idea; but what is the trend that is actually going on. How can you take the ideals of the constitution and apply them as an individual so as to preserve one's rights? I ain't even arguing here, I don't know what the hell to do.
There have been cameras on the traffic lights of the next town over for a couple years at least. I do not cotton to sitting at a light and looking at the lens of a camera on the pole. What the hell am I gonna do about it? Traffic light cameras are controversial in a lot of places. Sometimes it's a sub hired to implement the technology. They can rake in revenue by the millions.
When I go to the lumber yard in that town, I know where the speed traps are, and adhere to perfect driving. I can tolerate the imposition by compliance. I'm just trying to make a living. If I obsess about it I'll still have to make a living.
