Basically, all countries used to have super-high top marginal tax rates and then all countries scrapped them once we figured out it actually decreases revenue through incentive effects.

Any WV Republican would likely be worse though. Tongue

Trump supporters are so dumb.

Do you people not understand how the economy works? I prefer the free market over corrupt crony capitalism myself but I guess Republicans don't.
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Romney sold out on: November 30, 2016, 11:13:10 am
Yeah, I think there is a case for what Romney is doing here. It's unclear whether refusing to work with Trump once he's in power is the right call.

At least if you're not an officeholder with the power to defy him.

Venezuela is a depressing testament to human folly. The government has pursued policies known to destroy the country, as leftwing intellectuals in the West cheered on.
6  General Politics / Economics / Re: decline of the middle class - inevitable? on: November 29, 2016, 06:35:44 am
Just to be clear here, obviously competitors to Silicon Valley outside the US already exist and do well. I have friends in the sector working in Stockholm which does pretty well when it comes to those sort of things, for example. So I don't think it would necessarily take massive investments or startup costs - if the US shuts out foreign talent I expect they'd flock to other places and then make those places more attractive for American workers.

Of course, ag's reasoning relies a bit on Trump allowing Americans to leave the country. He could be the guy who transforms the US into a place needing walls to keep people in rather than out. Wink

Wow, is everyone on here virgins? Should do a survey of all the posters on here to see who's a virgin and who's not.

I vote FS (Freedom Sport).

I assume the first part of this is a joke post.

Sex is great, duh.

The day after the election a non-white friend of mine got knocked to the ground by an middle-aged white man shouting racial slurs at her. Middle of the day.

Seeing as this thread has been open for almost a week now and people have had a chance to sign on, all I will say is, judge me by my enemies.

Some of us don't engage in these silly petitions, but might still think you're a despicable person.

Yeah, how did I know Torie was going to be up there as pussie #1 in this escpade.

I can promise you from personal experience in the Mod Cave that Muon is #2.

The mods are a spineless bumch of twerps nowadays (except. TG).

Hey, I've always been in favour of indiscriminate banning!
11  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Favorite Christopher Nolan Films on: November 24, 2016, 08:43:28 am
Haven't seen Following or Insomnia.

Inception and Interstellar are awful. They're dumb movies designed to make semi-dumb people feel smart. As such, they're terribly insulting to the viewer.

Batman Begins and The Prestige are fine but nothing special. The Dark Knight Rises a little worse than that.

The Dark Knight and Memento I really like so they sort of win by default.

I watched The Lobster. Very enjoyable, I like my dark humour.

As I said in another post, I'm enlisted military, I call a small rural Oregon town home, I own four guns, I shop at Walmart, I drive a Ford, I'm half White/half Mexican and I'm married to a Vietnamese-American. How that makes me racist or elitist is beyond me. I was also not suggesting the other Trump supporters are stupid. I think you simply misunderstood the question I was asking--whether the other 59,999,999 Trump voters were also hoping Trump would not be as extreme as he pretended to be during the campaign?

Identity politics is strong with you. You think that those things you described determines if racists or not. BTW, there are a lot of Swedes who take wife from Thailand/Philippines etc. Sad enough, they often use them like sort of sex-slaves&housekeeper, because poor women are so depended om them to get citizenship/accommodation etc Sad  Just saying. I think Gustaf is such a freak.

To answer on you question. Yes, I think that most of Trump's supporters understood, that many of his proposals would be "transform to less extreme".

Eh, what the fck are you talking about, you little creep.

Obviously, about you. And your reaction proves I'm right Roll Eyes
Which country is your "wife" from [Thailand/Philippines/Vietnam]?


OnTopic. Of course, he'll keep it. He'll probably do it more Scandinavisch to hide "cost" but decrease price for "healthy" individuals or remove this requirement.

I don't have a wife and your suggestion that Asian women are imported sex-slaves is racist BS. It is however true that a lot of Asian women have to put up with racist creeps like you assuming they're empty-headed prostitutes or whatever.

16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: absentee/early vote thread, part 2 on: November 08, 2016, 10:49:10 am
Currently, turnout is up more in Broward than in Hillsborough. That's a good sign for Clinton no?

But not a whole lot:

Broward: 120% of 2012 turnout
Hillsborough: 119% of 2012 turnout

Sure, but a quick glance indicates that the demographic difference is Broward exchanges a bunch of white people for black people. So this counters the black turnout collapse narrative a bit it'd seem.

Isn't Colorado a state where GOP wins early vote and Democrats election day vote? So it makes sense?

If Elliott County in Kentucky breaks it's 150 year record streak of voting Democrat I'll have a moment of silence. Tongue

Yeah, pretty cool. Though I suspect Iowa was forgotten in terms of people updating their votes or something.

Surely, OH seems more likely to break Clinton than IA?

Not sure if this was posted or where it should go but a couple of FL counties are apparently live-updating turnout: http://www.livevoterturnout.com/Hills/ElectionDayPartyTurnout.html

The ordeal surrounding voting in the US always sounds so bizarre. I never had to wait in line or even spend more than a few minutes to bother about voting.

Though I guess inner city area and not being the victim of voter suppression goes a long way towards that.

I'm confused as to where this is actually found. This thread links to an old article about the project but the article itself doesn't show a link that is obviously to a result page. What am I missing?

It should be on the first link on votecastr.us i think. Not the bottom slate link but the upper one.

Ah, got it now. I tend to skip everything between the title and the text. Tongue
