OK, I'll try not to feel too smug in my criticism of Italy, but I
don't think we'd ever go that far in the USA.
@ RGGermans never thought they would go as far as they did under
Adolf Hitler. Romans didn't think they were going that far, as their
government borrowed, spend and taxed more. Few people thought a president would
used an executive order to force people to purchase items and lie about it being
a tax.That's the problem with the voters in this country. They
keep believing that if we just give up a little more of our freedom, take away
just a little bit of our rights then the other side will be happy. That has
never happened in the history of the world. It's all or nothing.Trax just needs a small tax increase, a year later just another small tax
increase, another year later anothe small tax increase....The taxes never go
away. We are still paying taxes for programs that are built and should be funded
by the riders only. Instead we fund their vacations.
But science doesn't really exist.Just ask those who deny
So Italian. Like our current personal injury lawyers, if something goes wrong
someone must be at fault and pay the price.
To "one old man" who denies that the climate is changing? I have never
heard of a scientist declaring that the climate is a constant.
@Liberal Ted: Point taken. It almost sounds like you are giving the conservative
line (which I wholeheartedly agree with) in spite of your screen name. I still
don't think we'd go as far as jailing scientists however.But it is
very scary how far we have gone, and it is scary that so many people support
Obama in spite of the fact that he wasted billions for nothing, was anything but
transparent, is economically clueless, supported backroom deals to pass
Obamacare which no one even read, etc.@one old man. I am a
scientist, admittedly not a climate scientist, and I am a climate change
skeptic, at least skeptical about man's role. Temps have not gone up in
about 15 years. I look forward to the time when we can have pure science,
disentangled from politics/media hype.
RG, so do I. It will be interesting to see which way it goes.
