    Ordinary people used to believe the world was flat Vince.

    If this "ordinary person" is incapable of recognizing that Neal Patrick Harris is doing his best Goebbels impersonation, complete with Nazi trenchcoat, in Starship Troopers, then they live in a much less interesting world than those of us who do.

    Education, it makes the world a more intriguing place.

    So it's not that Paul Verhoeven failed to communicate his message, but that people (except for smart people like you, of course) are idiots.

    The Star Wars prequels are visionary film making and anyone who disagrees is an inbred troglodyte! After all, George Lucas did an interview where he said he was going to make visionary films, so you stupid people need to stop your stupid whining and shut your stupid mouths so your stupid germs don't contaminate my air.

    I had a real problem with the way President Obama presented the intel on OBL's assassination. While he initially gave credit to the troops who actually killed the man, later in the speech, he seemed to take some of the credit himself. I accept that this may be personal bias on my part due to my time in the military.

    That and all the bailouts the president sponsored/didn't veto are why I am no longer willing to vote for him. Then again, I'm not willing to vote for Romney either.

    Show me a candidate that believes in both Financial Darwinism (no corporation is too big to fail) and limited social responsibility (no welfare or SS, but access to limited healthcare for all).

    Did you know that social security was never intended for long term use? What do you think it means for America when we grow increasingly distant from the idea that people should take personal responsibility for the decisions they make?



    If you drive on the roads or go to school in this country, I think mandatory military OR civil service should be required for two years. Furthermore, lack of this service should result in disenfranchisement at a minimum. That means a person failing to serve would not be allowed to vote.

    Rather than income taxes, there should be transaction taxes. It would be set on a sliding scale rate. Meaning that the lower the cost of the transaction, the lower the tax is.

    You want to buy a loaf of bread? You pay minimal tax. You want to buy a luxury yacht? You'll be paying 30% on top of the boat's quarter million dollar price.

    Awaits cries of being a socialist.

    You know, my knowledge of college level chemistry has saved my life on more than one occasion, but that's beside the point.

    Yes, I was aware of the intellectual conceit in my previous post. One thing I've learned in life is that being smart doesn't make you any less of a jackass. Rather, it often makes you better at it.

    In my book, being educated includes the power of critical thinking. Therefore, Mr. Lucas can insist that his work is visionary as the day is long. That doesn't mean it's true.

    What people say doesn't mean a damn thing Vince. What people do, does.

    I ramble when I've been drinking heavily.

    Ah, what you're looking for is a goods and services tax(GST) - known as VAT (value added tax) to those continentals.

    It's usually introduced as a complimentary tax so having it completely replace income tax would be quite unique, if you could find some politicians prepared to actually implement it.

    However, your sliding scale rate will the the cause no end to lobbying and debate about what constitutes luxury/necessity etc. 12 years on we still have a lobby group who's major gripe is that men's razors are GST-free whilst women's sanitary products have GST.
    Dum spiro, spero.
    Tada gan iarracht.
