Ewww. It would atleast need a bracket. Say everything under $10-15k (I have no idea of the cost of living in the states) isn't taxed whilst everything over is.

Although I'm not really a fan of flat taxes in general.

Lol. Over here, 'outdoor club' usually meant a field between the train tracks and a river estuary. xd

...What's a field? :?

It makes more sense than some of the other arguements. :)

Agreed. It makes religious people sound nice, which is a change for these forums.

Women won't stick rusty coathangers up their vaginas because they're so desperate to get rid of the foetus if abortion is legal. Or is that what you meant by 'safer environment'?

Should this be here?

IRL I believe in free speech, pluralism, human rights, etc. Essentially liberal democracy in action, with a mainly capitalist mixed economy and a welfare state.

In Georgism I believe in fuck all and choose whatever options seem most fun.

Eliminating the Shrubcuts and raising taxes would go towards solving the deficit. But as can be seen, the Repubs would rather destroy the country than do either of those. It wouldn't come close to solving the problem. This year. And would do absolutely nothing to address the problem long term. You ...

id suggest that ms campbell is the most famous naomi in the UK. (she may or may not be more famous than naomi judd in the US). and is the one most famous for being a diva.

it just seems cheap to use her name without her permission, legal or not.
