    of donations make no difference.

    This was a tiresome thread. You have made it achingly tiresome.

    Yeah right, I should disclose financial details and then you
    will inevitably accuse me of being a liar... You ultra right
    wingers are SO predictable...
    Actually THE ABOVE is a "non sequitur." But since you
    can't even spell it, I doubt you actually know what it means...
    You already said that this country was OK "before FDR."
    Let me repeat what you stand for:

    Worker exploitation, blatant racism, all sorts of
    discrimination, no social shock absorbers (social
    security, unions etc.), no rights for women (and I'm not
    even touching gays...), incredible disparity, political and
    religious repression, anti-semitism, ludicrous justice (the
    names Sacco and Vanzetti or Bruno Hauptmann should
    give you a hint...), rampant crime and unemployment,
    widespread illiteracy etc.
    The only way to "prove you wrong" and preempt your
    predictable "you're lying!" would be to post an authenticated
    copy of my 1040. Is that what you really expect me to do?
    Really? Quite a statement from someone who can't grasp
    what "a part of the game" means...
    So, a language is an "abstraction" (I can almost hear Bertrand
    Russell tumbling in his grave...) Interesting. Thank you
    for proving you have no idea what "abstraction" means.
    Then why did you strip the incriminating line from the quote? ;-)
    Since we were talking about TAXES, what would this "limits"
    be? Should the IRS politely asks you to pay taxes and back
    up whenever you don't approve of how taxpayer money is
    used?
    It may be "democratic" by your pre-FDR standards, but not by
    mine. BTW, that's why anti-discrimination laws were made, but
    I'm sure you hate them. There was no such a thing in your pre-FDR
    "paradise"...
    Meaning what? That you get to decide how your taxpayer money
    is spent? Sorry, it doesn't work that way. That's NOT democracy,
    that's OLIGARCHY.
    Show me how the above applies to taxation.
    The "common sense" of an ultra right-winger like you who
    advocates going back to the pre-FDR era isn't actually
    THAT common in this country. Or else I wouldn't live
    here.
    Here we go again. Just because you pay taxes, you THINK you
    are entitled to decide how that money is spent. Sorry, that is
    NOT how a democracy works. That's why we have ELECTIONS.
    You are entitled to decide how your taxes are spent only as far
    as your SINGLE VOTE counts. I can't believe you are unable
    to grasp such a simple concept. Maybe because you really
    HATE democracy?
    You really can't get it, can you? Just because YOU (an
    ultra right-wing extremists who advocates the country
    going back to the pre-FDR era) think that something is
    "stupid", it does not mean it actually is. It's your OPINION
    that only counts ONE VOTE. This is how a democracy works.
    Sorry it seems to be too hard for you to understand.
    So, you are saying that crime in any US city of today is
    HIGHER than in the pre-FDR era? Same for poverty and
    illiteracy, right? And maybe unemployment too, right?
    You've got to be kidding!! Let me give you a few pointers
    that maybe, just maybe, will help you out of your fantasyland:

    1932
    (the year FDR was
    elected President)

    Unemployed: 24.1%

    http://infoplease.com/year/1932.html

    People living in poverty: 25%

    http://www.census.gov/prod/2002pubs/pol02-ma.pdf


    2001

    Unemployed: 4.8%

    http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0104719.html

    People living in poverty: 11.7%

    http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0104525.html


    If it's all "the liberals' fault", then I'd say that "liberals"
    have done pretty good things for their country... Don't
    you agree? ;-)

    And finally, how do you explain that in "Socialist"
    Europe crime and illiteracy rates are much
    LOWER? Yeah, unemployment might be higher,
    but that's only because the Europeans are much
    more serious about taking reliable data while in
    the US the millions who have lost hope and don't
    show up at unemployment offices any longer are
    NOT accounted for.

    Still convinced you are "right"?
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    You're NOT right, you're just "right-wing"
    (i.e. WRONG!!)

    You don't really expect Mayer to know the
    difference, do you? ;-)
    Yeah, to people with an education, i.e. to those
    who have studied history and philosophy. That's
    why Mayer is completely clueless ("what the hell
    are you talking about?") :)
    The name "Halliburton" should give an ample clue here...
    But, unfortunately, for most people in America it does
    not. Draw your own conclusions...
    Sadly true. And those who suddenly woke up and
    realized they got shafted are branded as "traitors"...

    I'd like to here from anyone who knows the FinePix S5000. The reviews give
    less than fovorable points for picture quality. It looks like a great camera
    otherwise, but I want a good picture too. Any input would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    As can be seen by looking at the headers,
    I did not make the post above.

    Obviously, some dishonest person
    who cannot address the issues I raise,
    is taking the dishonest approach to
    promoting his agenda.

    As the best measure of a person, or group,
    are the tactics they use,
    I suggest that the poster reflect on his actions,
    use his real name, and address the issues raised,
    rather than try to obscure someone else's messages
    using dishonest, immoral tricks.

    In the long run, honesty is the best policy.
