Secondly, reading is half of the equation, living is the other. You said yourself that you have alot to learn, I just think it's sad that you've already made up your mind solely based on a few books you've read, instead of on real-world experience.
Again, not really sure why you care, but let me at least question something. Why is it that you assume I'm miserable? I'm fine, thank you very much, I'm just a little sick of having other people tell me how I can spend my money.
OHHH, and mad props on avoid all points I made in my post, and attacking me about my sex life.
I could care less about your sex life --- you missed the point. You wrote a list of assumptions --- I responded to your assumptions with BS --- you asked me BS --- I responded with BS.
Darth's points that you agreed with were 'agreeable.' My views don't differ. Unfortunately a few spoil it for the majority.
I do have real world experience, but no one can ever have enough. Reading is obviously not the answer to everything, but it sure helps feel in the pot holes in your mind with regards to issues. And no, I have not read 'a few' books --- I have read hundreds, on both ends of each spectrum. While the opposing sides have differing views, only one side is right in my mind, that being the side that is concerned about more than just themselves.
On one side you have a group of ignorant hypocrits, and on the other you have the exact opposite. Peter G. Peterson by the way is a Republican, and probably the furthest thing from Michael Moore. The numbers I have been using are from him, and if you want to check his credentials, just type his name into Google.
The flat tax is a tax scheme from hell --- anyone who is duped into believing it is fair has been fooled. It is really the 'rich pay nada, dump the entire burden on the poor and working class tax.'
This had dragged on too long, and to stay somewhat on topic I stopped by the EB at Washington Square only to find that there were no AWs there...
