    The problem is taxes on the lower and middle 'classes', the rich will increase their wealth regardless of taxation since they have the assets to do so (This is not to argue that taxing the rich is a good thing) We make the joke that in the Netherlands we have the richest poor people in the world. That's because there is a lot of money shifted around in extra taxes and subsidies. We have a word for this "nivellering" which translates as 'leveling' but imo it doesn't catch the full load. Essentially, I've been in a situation while I was a student when I was able to purchase mandatory health insurance for lets say 80 euro a month while getting a 89 euro subsidy (don't know exactly anymore), at the same time my father had to pay 2500 or something like this in extra health insurance tax because he has a good income. So I make 9 a month while he's spending 280+ a month for exactly the same insurance. Now the numbers may not be exactly right but the situation I'm trying to describe definitely existed. Now I also pay more :p. In any case, what this has caused in my opinion, is a system where there are very little incentives to get ahead. Also, because everybody gets subsidized to 'get an education' and therefore we have a lot of educated people who are completely useless, filling up jobs they can't do... Stopping people who may be able to take those jobs from pure experience and passion for what they are doing. So yeah, quit taxing people. If you absolutely have to, do it by VAT. Then normal people don't have to file taxes and life becomes simpler. :D

    I have a small 18" Husqvarna chainsaw. Works fine for me. The only bad I have to say about it is that the starter cord broke on me after using it a few times, but I have replaced this with a much more heavy duty cord and the saw has made sawing chores a lot more fun. Before I had a cheap chainsaw, I can definitely say this thing goes through the same wood twice as fast as my old one (even with a sharp blade). I'd have bought a Stihl if I needed my chainsaw weekly, however, I need it two or three times a year. I think I use about a gallon of fuel a year in my chainsaw.. Not much.

    I more or less have one. He doesn't always listen however when you give him a task, he's happy to do this for you. (about 4 mo. old now) :D He's very smart and I didn't really have to learn him anything, he just does stuff. When I said sit the first time, he sat down, I was amazed. :cool: When he's a little older and we go camping, he's gets to carry his own food in a backpack.

    Bit late don't you think ? Now I'm not a Jesus person, although people sometimes call me that because of my physical appearance but I do believe strongly in good morality and respecting other people. I definitely subscribe to the golden rule. Yes. Definitely. And even though I agree with Dannno that it's quite harsh for the totality of it, I must say I have not researched the average sentence, I definitely think that lawmakers should be the ones giving the good example. Around here, you get double the punishment if you assault emergency workers. On the other hand, emergency workers, mostly police, generally get the benefit of the doubt when they assault someone. Now I think in principle every person should be the same, but if we do this right, then indeed, we should show no mercy in sentencing those who make the laws.

    Nope, but as you may well know, if nobody buys new and expensive tech, then it doesn't get developed. There is definitely a future in hydrogen as batteries are not a very environmentally friendly way to store energy. Hydrogen can be easily produced from electricity with a very high efficiency in conversion. Apart from that, with hydrogen you can store energy as it becomes available, allowing you to stabilize the electricity grid you are connected to. Oh and also, you can satisfy both people who like to drive very efficiently and people who like cars with big engines, lots of power and loud noise. Because you can use a fuel-cell to make electricity to power your car but you can also burn hydrogen in an internal combustion engine. In both cases, water comes out the exhaust. So yeah, for me, a hydrogen powered car, with an internal combustion engine, would be awesome. However, I must say, electric cars, when properly made, do have lots of torque all through the range, so I'd take a fuel-cell car too, as long as it was built to drive.

    I don't know but then again, I don't believe you particularly help society by locking up individuals for a very long time. It costs money and when they get out, have they become better people or better criminals ? Depends I guess... But on average you could say something about it. It's not restitution either, it's pure revenge. So no, let him pay the medical bills, any lost income and a big sum as restitution.

    I'm actively going to look for snow around Christmas. That and cold temperatures, campfire, meat and vodka. :D I don't mind the cold, as long as it's sunny and there's not a lot of wind I like it really cold. I can remember sitting without a shirt on at 15F/-10C in Austria, with a beer in my hand, feeling totally warm. Cold is kind of relative. If you are insulated from wind and water, you're not too likely to feel cold.

    Yup. I totally agree. It's hard to take this stand, but AF is right. Our government is creating this problem by importing people who they have no business importing. It's not wise to go along with an American, especially within our own borders, being classified as an enemy combatant and losing out on a trial with a jury of their peers. Not a good road for us to go down. Better to stop our government from creating this problem and that includes those of you believing in open borders, using your brains.

I will probably be blogging from time to time on a variety of subjects but mostly about historical subjects and maybe even some entries on how to make wise investments in the world of antiques and collectibles since there has been some interest around here about that very subject in the past.
