    Now, obviously noone wants to be raped, murdered, or force-fed salad dressing,

    but if you got to choose, obviously you would pick getting force-fed salad dressing, every time!

    This proves that the free market principles of choosing where your taxes go is an effective way to govern!
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Nothing in this response engaged the argument I have with your theory of knowledge. This is what I said:

    Anyway, you keep employing pragmatism as a method for teaching people to want smaller government. You are using pragmatism as a theory of knowledge. But pragmatism fails as a theory of knowledge because if the mark of success is the way to ascertain truth, then one cannot know the truth until after one has acted. But one of the primary purposes of knowledge is to permit a person to make an informed choice (before one has acted), and choices are always about the future, not the past. In pragmatism, one always knows too late. One cannot know, and make choices based on knoweldge, in a pragmatic framework.

    So even using pragmatism as a way to teach people about smaller government will result in failure.
    I am not talking about pragmatism vs. deontology, I am refuting pragmatism as you are using it: as a theory for knowledge. Pragmatism does not and cannot give people knowledge. So your entire argument (that we must employ tax choice as a way to find out what government is best) fails before it even starts. Why don't you engage my refutation?

    Have you ever tried a salad dressing with lemon juice instead of vinegar?

    Right now government planners determine exactly how much public funds are given to the government organizations that force-feed us salad dressing. Are they giving an amount that accurately reflects exactly how much society truly values these government organizations?

    If your answer is "yes"...then here's what you're indicating...

    1. that you believe that socialism is a perfectly viable concept
    2. that a stateless society would be just as violent as a state society

    Let's make it really easy.

    1. Go to the Wikipedia entry on tax choice
    2. Copy and paste whatever it is you disagree with into your reply
    3. Share whichever economic concepts refute the argument(s) that you copy and pasted

    Do you know of any "citronette" salad dressings available at supermarkets?

    My addition to this dressing would be to use fresh herbs rather than dried...you'll get twice the taste.
    And if you put a teaspoon of dijon mustard in there and whisk it hard, the dressing will emulsify and you'll have a vinaigrette.
    Yeah, fresh herbs are always better than dried...good call. Regarding the dijon mustard...if you saw exactly how much raw garlic went into my dressing...then not sure you'd recommend emulsifying it. Would emulsifying it make it thicker? If so...then it would be like salad dressing pudding. But I'm all about the "kick" so next time I'll cut back on the garlic and see how the dijon flavor gets along with the garlic power.

    I'm not talking about economics. I'm talking about your theory of knowledge. (third time I've said this)

    Your method of teaching people about economics is faulty. Pragmatism cannot teach anybody anything, because it cannot give people knowledge to make choices.

    If you knew the first thing about knowledge then you'd know that Hayek was the preeminent Austrian economist in this area. So if you want to learn about knowledge...then go to the Wikipedia entry on decentralized knowledge...and read over every single passage that's included.

    Do you know who, exactly, added every single one of those passages? I did. My point isn't to toot my own horn...my point is to demonstrate that I've thoroughly researched the topic of knowledge...which is why I advocate creating a market in the public sector.

    Not if you add something sweet in the salad. Mandarin oranges come to mind.

    I haven't looked into it. I am trying to eliminate oils due to the high ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 polyunsaturated fats. Highly inflammatory as I understand it. That makes salad dressings off limits for me. I recalled seeing the following and it sounded delicious (includes rice vinegar but includes fresh orange juice and is home made. Orange basil):

    When Miss Jane questions one of Granny’s recipes, Jed explains mountain measurements.

    “A smidgen is just a teeeenie, little bit…

    3 smidgens make one pinch

    4 pinches equals one little bit

    4 little bits equal one midlin’ amount

    3 midlin’ amounts equal one right smart and it takes 5 right smarts to make a whole heap.”


    According to Jethro, “Uncle Jed could really turn a phrase!”

    “Weeeell, doggies!” Jed would say, “that’s …”

    ”just a couple a wagon races up the road.” or

    ”a drop in a rusty bucket down my well.” or

    ”thicker than crows in a corn patch”

    ”{he’s} – lower than a hog’s chin on market day”

    ”green enough to stick in the ground and grow.”

    ”such a liar that he used to have to get somebody else to call his dog for him.”

    ”happy as a gopher in soft dirt.”

    ”showin’ more colors than a red rooster in a pumpkin’ patch.”

    ”tighter than a high string on a two dollar fiddle.”

    ”so lazy he has to lean up against somethin’ to buck.”

    And there's a spectacular supper that includes chicken or turkey tenders, pan-seared then doused in wing sauce, tossed atop a bed of pasta with bleu cheese sauce. Sometimes to mix things up you can toss it atop some chunky mashed potatoes with bleu cheese mixed into them.
    May the wings of liberty never lose a feather.
