    Jesus Christ, the day that libertarians argue that cutting taxes on corporations that employ a thousand workers at good wages to keep them from leaving the community is the day I split with libertarians. Ya'll are some dumb-shit individuals. As bad or worse than liberals.

    In this case libertarians seem like liberals because they seem to prefer welfare recipients as opposed to companies that employ working individuals. They seem to believe in taxes, low incentives and regulations that drive these corporations elsewhere. So, yes, it's easy to confuse the two.

    "Even if I didn't like the condition, well, your giving it to one why not the other, why don't you give it to everybody else. I never voted to raise taxes. If you don't support the abatement or credit then you are voting to raise taxes." Glad I could help out someone listening/reading impaired.

    I'm glad libertarians agree that this was a good deal then. I don't know what these other individuals consider themselves if this is true though.

    And in the real world there are not $70k a year jobs just waiting around the corner, immediately available, after being cut. Get out of your books and videos and go see what is going on in this country.

    Again, because you really suck at comprehension. Facts + math overcome your belief that my entire premise is a "maybe." Here's the breakdown. Carrier leaves. 1000 individuals lose their jobs and go on assistance at $390 a week for 26 weeks (Indiana Unemplyment). That comes to roughly $10 million in unemployment wages. $10 million NET LOSS. Add in no income tax coming in from these individuals. So your looking at a $12 million loss. Indiana offered $1 million in tax credits, another $5 million in conditional tax credits to retain 1,062 jobs that pay $30.91 per hour. And another $1 million for training grants. A total of $7 million. Instead of a $12 million drain, and also realize that the economy ripples and that these workers wages are not supporting other businesses in their area. In Indiana there is a 3.3% income tax. 3.3% of 1000 workers @ $70k per year comes to a tax gain of $2.3 million per year.This doesn't even include the 7% sales tax that would generate at least another $5 million per year. That is a $7 million dollar NET GAIN, offset by tax breaks, equals a wash. Except that there is not a NET LOSS. There remains 1000 workers that spend $70k in their community supporting other small businesses. On top of that Carrier will invest $16 million into improvements that will, in some way, include local small business companies. And $1 million goes to training workers in todays competitive business environment.

    You suck at listening/reading. "Even if I didn't like the condition, well, your giving it to one why not the other, why don't you give it to everybody else." Are you really that thick headed? It was only a couple of sentences to decipher and you failed miserably.

    11:35. "My policy over the years is to support anything that looks like a tax abatement or a tax credit. Even if I didn't like the condition, well, your giving it to one why not the other, why don't you give it to everybody else. I never voted to raise taxes. If you don't support the abatement or credit then you are voting to raise taxes."

    Or MIGHT they have just created a new environment where the STATE government realizes that giving incentives is a pretty damn good deal? Might, might, might, might, might, might, might, might, might, might, might, might. In the meantime, in the here and now real world, 1100 jobs were saved and the welfare system didn't become a bigger burden.

    I brush my teeth with Coconut oil, baking soda and myrrh powder.

    I use it because I hate the taste of toothpaste. I've never liked it. I used to just use baking soda but as I got older and learned about coconut oil, I started mixing baking soda, kosher salt, and coconut oil together to make my own toofpaste. I also tried a whitener once and it burned my gums and made my teeth sensitive. My dentist gave some professional strips to try because the Franzia was staining my teeth. They weren't gnarly, they just didn't look dazzling.:D Anyway, I tried one and gave the rest away - those damn strips were 10.00 each. My dentist gifted them to me but I saw on my receipt the retail price for a 4 pack was 40.00.:eek: I ended up learning about activated charcoal for tooth whitening and it works. I'm not sure how well it would work on badly stained teeth but it makes mine look like they've been professionally whitened. I bought the activated charcoal caplets off amazon for around 5.00. I opened them all up (very messy), put the powder back in the bottle and I use it once a week. I just dip a toothbrush in the powder (warning, use a dollar tree toothbrush because the charcoal will turn it black) get it all over my teeth, jump in the shower and when I get out, I rinse out my mouth with a waterpik and brush my teeth good. WARNING - I've heard it can stain dental work. I only have a few small fillings on some molars and haven't noticed any staining but I've read online that some people have turned their crowns black.:eek: My routine. Brush twice a day Waterpik at night Activated charcoal once a week or whenever I feel like I need it. It doesn't hurt your teeth so you can do it as much as you want. Since I got on that routine, my dental cleanings only take about 15 minutes. :cool:

Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
--Albert J. Nock
