income tax as a whole has that effect and on everyone paying into.

A consumption tax is the only fair tax. eliminate the income tax

If you guys want, I'd be more than happy to have a thread on policy options in a recession. It would be fun, at least for me. Let me know and I'll send powerpoints to aid the discussion

See that! Quickest way to end an argument is to threaten powerpoints. We shouldn't be sending troups to Afghanistan, we should be anesthetizing them with a slideshow.

Victory is mine!

I hate unions, so I think it's a load of crap. These guys are making ridiculous loads of money, so I don't have any sympathy for them. My beef with players today is that holdouts are becoming much more prevalent. When these guys have one good season, they go asking for a new contract. But if they have a bad season, you don't see them offering to give the money back.

You can talk about the money that NFL owners make, but what you're probably not taking into account is the financial risk that they take.

No, that is okay- I don't have time right now during the semester, but I'll concede that you know more than me on the subject-
