    No, the moral thing would be to steal the same amount from everyone, not proportion :rolleyes: Jeesh, WTF are we talking about with moral stealing? No theft is moral; and thieves take from whomever is easiest to steal from. So steal from liberals - they're probably not packing heat.

    I've been looking at this from the viewpoint of logical consistency, and I just don't get it. The story last week was that the three wealthiest people in the United States (Gates, Bezos and Buffet) had greater wealth than the poorest 50% of the people in the country. Then the progressive argument based upon that was that something needed to be done to the income tax code to remedy this. Now income is not the same thing as wealth. Gates, Bezos and Buffet don't earn more income than the bottom 50% of the country. Buffet was making $14 or $15 million a year by the last tax forms he released. They're wealthy because the stock they own was once worth pennies per share and is now worth hundreds of dollars per share. It doesn't become income until they sell it. Now not to give the progressives any ideas, but if they were logically consistent then shouldn't they be advocating for a wealth tax rather than an income tax? <<SHIVER>> imagine how intrusive the IRS would be under that scenario Edited to add: Do you think Warren Buffet would be as enthusiastic about going to that type of "fair taxation" as he is on increasing rates on high income earners?

    I don't think there's a playbook; but I'll bet we can come up with a few "plays": 1) Don't allow your wife to enter into the mix - particularly if she doesn't have her facts straight. She remains a sympathetic figure so long as she relays those generic "Stand By Your Man" platitudes when asked by reporters for a comment. With the right air of indignity she can put a reporter in his/her place which directs attention to the reporter and away from her husband. Allowing her to go on Fedbook with false information on how long restaurants have been around shows her as being complicit in a whitewash - which detracts from her husband's credibility, and brings the conspiracy theorists crawling out of the woodwork. Anyone else have any "plays" for a playbook?

    Good point. I guess that I'd clarify that by saying that where I grew up, they weren't the kind of men that most daddies wanted to see their little girls running around with.

    I'd be just as happy with an Attorney General that didn't enforce federal laws (most seem to penalize people for consensual activity). As for Fusion GPS, I'd say the same things I current say to the people harping about Russian Interference ... One of the most critical elements of a democracy is an electorate that is educated, informed and capable of crtically questioning any information it's presented with; if you don't have that then foreign propaganda, and the source of funding for a dossier are the least of your problems. As for Uranium One, the problem isn't that someone did something - the problem is that government granted those people the power to do something.

    It was the late 60's when I was 16. Yeah, there were people (I should say men) that bought beer for kids at that age - but they weren't the reputable people in town. If they were caught, they were prosecuted. They dispensed weed and coke too. They were generally guys out looking for a little strange (male and female strange). I only knew a couple of men beyond college age that dated 16-18 year old girls. Even the 24 year old guy caught the "ewwwww" factor when he came to the Junior Prom. But I grew up in the North (the Adirondacks), and it may have been different in the South. In Moore's defense, his wife is 14 years younger than he is - so he definitely likes younger women. She was 22 when they met though (he was 36) - and there's a big difference between 16 year-olds in high school and women who have seen a bit of the world and aren't quite so naive. I'm not a fan of the guy, but I don't think he needs to withdraw over an accusation, or multiple accusations. Let the chips fall where they may and let the voters decide.

    I was just putting a face and profile to the person quoted in the article. Contact info at the link I included if anyone had comments or questions (or if Danke wanted to ask her out) I was a consultant at JPL for about six years in the 80's, and stay in touch with what's going on there. I forget when this particular study came out, but the original public release story from JPL came out last Tuesday (07NOV) and can be found here. Y'all might want to read it and compare it to the the SHTFplan.com story to see how SHTFplan spun it by leaving some information out.
