#2742279 How America Pays Taxes—in 10 Not-Entirely-Depressing Charts

Posted by natty on Yesterday, 01:41 PM

How America pays taxes: Under the threat of imprisonment.  That's the answer.


You are quite free to move to another country.  


I've never understood this point of view.  I hate taxes as much as the next guy but calling it theft is too hyperbolic for me.

It seems like when I was a kid people accepted science as a self correcting process.  Now it seems everyone's opinion is more important.  


'It could be something else, idk lol' is apparently now a valid hypothesis.

Ooorrrr...we're keeping people in prison longer.  You know.  The graphic showing where we have a large % of people in the US in prison?  Maybe that's working?


It has nothing to do with the US, and a much larger timeline than the recent 30-40 years we've been locking people up like crazy.  I honestly can't even fathom how you'd think those were related by what I said in my previous posts.

I'm eager to see if Shae really did make it on the ship to Pentos, or if Bronn has been bought out by a higher bidder/higher power... My hunch is she didn't and, in a way, I don't want Bronn to be in on that plot... He's been pretty damn loyal and a friend to Tyrion, and I'd hate to see the true sellsword come out in him...


I thought Bran's sequence seemed a little rushed, but was really glad they did it the way they did...


It seems Bronn has made more money off Tyrion than anyone could offer to betray him, especially now that Jaime is paying him too.  It just wouldn't make sense.  



Joffrey's antics at the wedding were on the verge of being too over the top for me.  It's hard to think someone could be that much of a twat waffle, but I guess they were just giving him one more demonstration of douchebaggery before sending him off.

I'm growing weary of the ever-increasing violence people are now employing to simply make a point, to create change or to express their dislike or disagreements.


Don't like the way your government is handling things? Screw it, just arm yourselves, storm the buildings, take hostages and demand a referendum.


Don't like the idea the guy sitting next to you in a movie theater got a text from his babysitter? Hell, don't talk to him, just shoot him.


We, as a species, have completely lost the ability to communicate directly with anyone standing in front of us. If it's not a text, email, Twitter, Instagram, forget it. Supposedly, the only thing separating us from many other animal species is the ability to reason, and I fear we're losing that as well.


The extinction of the human race will be of our own volition.




Except violence isn't increasing at all.  It's rapidly declining.

We're all here on a message board during the work day.  Shouldn't we all be lifting ourselves up by the bootstraps right now?

Okay, here's the deal.


This is a very dangerous precedent.  If I donate my own money to a cause or even an candidate, should I lose my job?  If there is any cause or candidate, it automatically means that there is another candidate running and another side to every cause.


Should we has a society, be so short sighted to say, "if you don't agree with me, I will punish you and your livelihood"?  If this is the gay and lesbian way, then what makes them any better than the redneck?  Maybe I sent money to Barack Obama for his campaign, which means I agree with most of his policies.  if another side wins the election, should I lose my job or business.


Most of you guys, I could give a rip about your knee jerk short sighted opinions, but a couple, who are generally on the other side, disappoint me.


If MLK wanted revenge rather than equality, I do not think he would have made near the impact that he did.  If the gay/lesbian community are fixed on revenge rather than equality, then I think their cause will suffer.  I would not respect putting one asshats vengefull intents over another.


This is more bent on facism than anything I would count as just.


Easy answer, yes.  If you're the face of a multi-million dollar corporation and your actions hurt that company then you bet your ass you should be canned.  That's all there is to be said about it.  

#2728410 UPS firing in Queens. 250 let go for staging a 90 minute strike.

Posted by natty on 05 April 2014 - 08:13 PM

What is the point of a union that can't strike?


Just at a glance it seems like having the ability to strike in that industry would be too much power.  It'd just create an environment of mutually assured destruction.  



Unions only work if there is a good balance of power.  All this anti-union/pro-union crap is ridiculous.  Unions can be extremely effective in certain contexts and extremely damaging in others.  These workers broke the contract of both the union and the company.  idk if they deserved to be fired but surely they had to expect something.

They were indeed not trying to shoot them.. They were trying to channel them to the rail car... This should have been obvious by the whole "hey Carl, this here's a slipknot and a game trail.. you gotta channel the game into the trap..." scene... They were setting up the scene in which they were the game and the rail car was the trap.


The writers have the subtlety of a slap to the face.  


Overall it's a good show but I've never watched anything that tries to fug up a good story as much as they do.
