    O.J. was certain it was a caddie that perpetrated the murders as he searched golf courses around the country. I wonder who or what the government thinks is the prime suspect?

    DC has now become District of Corruption. I doubt anything would be done other than lodging a complaint with the WTO. After all numerous dictators around the world, Hugo, Chavez comes to mind, have done exactly that with few consequences. On the other hand piracy on the high seas has had serious consequences for pirates inhibiting shipping from the bad old days to the present.

    Can you back that statement up? Explain how the same percentage paid by all members of a society is regressive. What makes a progressive tax better in any way?

    That's not what Buck said Rich. Your hyperbole renders anything of value you may have said worthless.

    Can you prove any of that wiz? What constitutes a disgustingly high salary? Who are you to decide in the first place? Have you ever made a payroll? Have you run a business larger than a lemonade stand? Went round and round with an insurance company to ensure your employees got good insurance at a fair price?

    First off let's get something straight. They are illegal aliens not immigrants. The word immigrant implies some sort of legitimacy they do not have. The first item before anything else can be discussed is securing the border. No conspiracy you say? We were told that the border is secure. In fact unaccompanied three year olds are coming across that border daily. That was obviously a lie. Lies are told to deceive the audience into believing something for a purpose. This is a defacto conspiracy perpetrated by this administration as they are the entity that lied to us. In this case the purposes are many and none of them are beneficial to the legal residents of this nation. Whether this was a botched attempt to force Republicans into some sort of comprehensive 2,000 page undecipherable immigration reform chock full of unintended consequences and amnesty or more nefarious purposes is irrelevant. The results are the same and are now obvious. Dispersing the illegal alien invasion around the country with all of their diseases and criminal intent under extreme secrecy suggests a deeper conspiracy. The fact that the Mexican government along with the central American governments are cooperating with no opposition from the US government suggests an international conspiracy. We are hearing that its the cartels and coyotes that are responsible when in fact the cartels are the governments in these places and are making bank on this. Care to restate your no conspiracy theory?

    I believe I said that it was caused by the Fed instituting the QE program. Your other elaborations are just more gibberish. Do you actually read the posts you respond to or is it a knee jerk reaction to try and blame anyone else but your team?

    It will be interesting to see how long it takes for the new entity to become as thoroughly corrupt as the IMF and World Bank it is supposed to supplant. With Russia and China as the primary backers it won't be long until they begin subverting it to their own ends which may not closely coincide with those it is supposed to benefit.

    Like all of us I see things through the prism of my experiences and upbringing. While I strive for honesty and directness in all facets of my life personal and business I'm not perfect either. I have a severe problem with a profession that seems to have dishonesty, intentional deception and intellectual discourteousness as a core element and prerequisite for success.

    When there are more people riding in the wagon than pulling the wagon the wagon will stop moving.

    That is a myth. The flat tax is not regressive as the percentage is the same for all concerned. A floor could be established to allow the very poor relief but it is in no way regressive and is a fair way to apply an income tax. I personally prefer the fair tax concept. http://www.fairtax.org
