    Faith: Re: The soul does not exist

    We are agreed in the outcoeme but... I'll try to explain the notion further.

    Re: What is a Fair Share of taxes for the Rich?

    You asked how tax impacts income inequality, I explained how, then you objected based on fairness. That makes no sense MT. When explaining how something works, you don't need to make a justification...

    Right, you do know what an analogy is right? "a comparison between one thing and another, typically for the purpose of explanation or clarification."

    Re: What is a Fair Share of taxes for the Rich?

    Quite a bit actually. It puts a limit on the income of the wealthy, prevents them from building up as much capital which in turn limits their income. It is transferred to the poor and services for...

    I am not saying that. Let me give you an analogy.

    A dime is woth 10 cents. I might well pick up a dime I see on a countertop if it belongs to no one.

  6. Re: Racism & Sexual Scandal - A Statute of Limitations?

    So you are talking about imprisoning women in their third trimester to ensure they do no harm to their child? How would then not be government intervention?

    Re: What is a Fair Share of taxes for the Rich?

    I think that is a good principle rule. For me, the ideal would be more like 25% but 50% should be a maximum from net income. And that would include both state and federal taxes. Also it would...

    Re: Elizabeth Warren: Cherokee or Fraud?

    I was glad to see she apologized to the Cherokee nation over this. I hope she takes a consistent apologetic tone for it.
