Re: The problem with no Net Neutrality

Yes, I've heard of it. It's simply a rationalization for the violation of property rights (one of many). The concept exists to allow the government to force people (i.e. businesses) to do things that they wouldn't otherwise freely [more]

Rent seeking? Give me a break. It's called property rights. The property belongs to the ISPs. They should be able to charge for using it in any manner that they wish.

No, they shouldn't.

Re: Poor vs. Rich

With more people creating their own wealth, the obvious answer is to tax the rich more and give to the poor. At least in the liberal mindset.

Debt aside, there are parts of the country where one can live decently on that amount.

Re: the NFL

Those who voted for Trump have no moral standing to talk about this issue.

Re: Why Not a Tithe Tax?

So do the math, $60k income with 320M population gives a $1.9 T tithe. Corporate profits give a tithe of $0.8 T. So a shortfall of $0.8 T. I would find it hard to believe that a tithe on corporate INCOME wouldn't make up for the [more]
