Ah the right! same discourse everywhere.
I want to yell at all USA republicans. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT COMMUNISM IS. democrats aren't communists and if some communist joins the dem party, it's only because your country has absolutely zero political representation for anything that resembles true left wing politics.

Back to "light hearted" mode:

@davymid: PBBT! Those are ANIME CATGIRLS not "manga"! Geez learn the difference!

OK, some of them are manga... but only the really good mangas!

AND! And I mix in fox, wolf, rabbit and monstergirls too!

So there! Er... um... what was I talking about?



Hey! It's relevant! "Squirrel Girl" was the subject in a recent POST! Really! Don't make me link it... *grrr*

MEANWHILE he has had several "arguments" of EXACTLY the same sort with OTHER IABers... but only -moi- is at fault? Non, non, non!

It takes TWO to Tango, brother... enjoy your "solo tango"... it's no skin off my teeth.

He said he as much before, after...

Actually @davymid? The CORRECT order of events is:
I said I was sick of him and would ignore him... unless he was civil.
THEN! He said "I'm going to ignore you!" Like he was in 2nd grade... whatevers!
Then he returned to talking to me.
I continued to ignore him when he was an IDIOT, but talked to him several times when he was polite. BUT since I didn't comment on that "non talking"? It's likely unnoticed...
(HINT: If you SAY I'm ignoring you? You're NOT really, eh?)

Then came THAT post; where he "trolled" and got banned, then came back and GLOATED about it...

MEANWHILE he was "ignoring me" by referring to me specifically (iirc if it was "by name" or not) on several OTHER posts!

"Don't say that about (him) (5Cats) or he'll tell the mods and have you banned!"

Direct paraphrase...

Said by the same guy that's tried to drown me out and intentionally troll people here.

*Sorry, character cutoff.

This is what keeps a debate like this intelligent and civil. We can disagree, and agree to disagree. Without slander, malice, or dismissal.

And hopefully, without any more pictures of Manga f*cking Catgirls.

5Cats buddy, HolyGod is not going to respond to your posts (I assume that's what he meant by "Avalanche of Stupid"). He said he as much before, after you got him banned for over 2 weeks by complaining to the Mods about his comments. That was just after he got reinstated later the same day when the Mods (me not included) reviewed the thread in question and realised what he said was entirely innocuous.

This thread, for the Terminally Bored.

To be fair, I'd probably do the same.

Sorry HolyGod if I'm telling stories out of school, but you did mention that if you want an intelligent discourse you'd debate with people like HumanAction (to name just one).

So Kudos to Holy and Human for keeping it civil. Nothing wrong with having opposing views, if the debate is intelligent. Thi

@HolyGod

I enjoyed our discussion, thanks.

No worries - always interesting to discuss a different perspective considering my obvious libertarian bias.

... and creates the so-called "charity-loophole" that oh-so-many liberals (not saying you - just many liberals) complain about.

@HumanAction: Exactly! Wasn't Romney a "tax cheater" for donating so much? Yes he WAS!

really ? i thought you were talking 'bout apples? now what did you think i was talking about?

It works either way, just choose ONE WAY and stick with it!
A person doesn't steal a TV because he's hungry? What if he sells the TV to buy food? EXACTLY the same as stealing my apples to buy booze.
Get it? THEFT = theft, the "why" of it does not matter.

come tax inventory time i used to make sure stock was down low.

WHAT! You'd hide your apples from the taxman? That's cheating! Go directly to jail! Do NOT pass "Go"...

Maybe it is because I live in Phoenix and hear a lot about solar,

Yes, it is because you live in Phoenix, one of the few cities on Earth where solar might someday be feasible.

If the government was ordering solar panels for the roofs of government building like they ordered computers...

They ARE doing that! massive tax subsidies and outright HANDOUTS to companies have resulted in... nothing.
Governments and businesses bought computers because it MADE ECONOMIC SENSE at the time! Not because it would "pay off" 20 years later... maybe!
The MARKET drove computer demand, not the Government.

Here in Winnipeg we have Natural Gas for heat and Hydro electricity, would those work in Phoenix? I think not... or (to pick a random place that's cold) Denmark? Nope.

@MrOrange

you like to fill in a lot of the blanks don't you? and you like to think you matter? that's quite human of you.

First part - yes, especially when there are so many holes to fill; second part - not really, no; third part - thanks?

Your deduction errord on the "this forum" which you took to mean this thread.

OK - fair enough. I really doubt this is what you meant but, in the strictest sense, you are correct. So, I'll begrudgingly admit that I inferred too much from your statement; my apologies.

well either i live in the nicest part of the world

Try arguing economics with a liberal on a college campus. Thou shalt know the annoyance of face-to-face dismissal.

as for the intent of my original post. did you even bother to clarify?

I have no idea what you are asking for here.

@HumanAction

Taxation is no doubt a wholle differnt ballgame over here. but i would look into it as devalution of stock and unsold stock is tax deductable.

it's also the reason why come tax inventory time i used to make sure stock was down low. But i'm sure there are better resources in your neck of the wood to get the best tax results..

What a silly think to say. Just as my opinions are "set in stone", so are yours (and HolyGod's for that matter).

No no NO! @HumanAction!
"conservative ideas" are "set in stone" and are too stupid to change.
"liberal ideas" are 100% correct and NEVER need to change!
Get I right! I mean: left!

Because openly discussing differing opinions is a waste of time.

Absolutely! Because ANY opinion other than the liberal one is wrong anyhow! Every intelligent person knows that!

Open discussion = The liberal says his viewpoint, and the conservative silently agrees 100%! Fair! Equal!

Perhaps I should have been more particular with my wording.

You named @MO by name, I don't se what more you could reasonably have done...

@HolyGod

Did you have a CPA do your taxes or did you do them yourself?

We - meaning my partner - do our own taxes. Every year we debate having a CPA do them but always end up doing them. My involvement is usually just a review when he's done and filing my K-1.

That being said, I think it all depends on the way you value and claim your inventory. I believe there is a means to deduct the value of unused sales inventory or unsellable inventory; I would have to ask. My complaint is that this method still requires us to make an interest-free loan to the government in the form of taxation.

Sure, we get the money back, but we've also lost 2% of it's value due to inflation as well as untold opportunity cost.

but you don't have the right to bitch when someone clubs you over the head to get an apple becuase s/he is hungry

@MrOrange: You DO understand that "an apple" is an analogy for "income", correct?
And WHY does it matter if they STEAL my apples because they're hungry, OR because they want to sell them and buy booze? I'M STILL the one with a busted-open skull and no apples to feed MY children...
Why don't the "hungry people" ask the government for apples? THEY are the ones with "extra apples" not ME!

you also don't get to bitch about... because paved roads cost money...

WOAH! Talk about "filling in the blanks" bro!
WHEN did I say I'd NEVER give up my apples? In FACT I said the OPPOSITE of that!
And if I had "extra apples" I could donate them to get local roads improved. Ever think of that? Smart Donkey?

@puppies04: I'd gladly give you one!
But the government took my "extra" apples away! At gunpoint! Now if I don't keep all I have? My children will starve this winter! Sorry bro, try again next year.

@5cats, the goverment does not have the right to come and take your apple, but you don't have the right to bitch when someone clubs you over the head to get an apple becuase s/he is hungry, you also don't get to bitch about the fact that the car ride ro the police station was a pain on the sore head becuase well.. paved roads cost money.. and don't bitch about no cival cervant bieng there iether, he went home to look after his apple tree. Do you understand what a society means now? i'm not saying it's perfect. It needs a lot of work, but it beats getting your head beat in...

@Humanaction,
you like to fill in a lot of the blanks don't you? and you like to think you matter? that's quite human of you.

But as tends to happen when you fill in the blanks, there is a possibility of bieng wrong. Which and i hope your ego can handle it. you are.
Your deduction errord on the "this forum" which you took to mean this thread. Does that clarify it for you?

"I typically find that, in both cases, there are relatively few people willing to openly and civilly discuss opposing views. However, in both cases, there are significantly more people who try to simply dismiss others without reason - such as your original post did."

Really? well either i live in the nicest part of the world or i'm a master persuader in the real world, and well the latter doesn't fly for me. and i don't think the first one does either.
as for the intent of my original post. did you even bother to clarify? or are you the one being dismissive?

"Is it MORE immoral than a child starving to death?"
Appeal to emotionalism = FAIL!

"You use the money to fund groups to build schools, install water and sanitation, distribute food and medicine."
They already DO THAT! The corrupt governments, Warlords and other thugs STILL take it away and make money. Have a taste of reality bro! If you GIVE poor people food? They STOP buying it from local producers, who go broke and move away! It's happened 100 times thanks to "UN Help"! And the Warlords steal half of the "free food" so the poor starve anyhow!
Reality is not pretty.
Nor is it "fixed" with "good intentions".
You "solutions" are LAUGHABLY doomed to fail.

...you give them what they need to survive.

Wait, didn't you say "no handouts"? Forgot about that part already?
