wisconsin nonsense.  pass the cheese curds

I am not sure what the nonsense is. I have to say I am quite impressed that number of protesters showed up. It isn't an issue summed up in a sound bite. It gives me some hope that perhaps people aren't as acquiescent as I have posited so many times.

I agree, that is a good sign, and healthy for a democracy. 

Wisconsin has one  of the highest, stifling state income tax rates in the USA, so only some redress against overpaid government workers is feasible.  Thank God I live in Florida where the state does not confiscate a dime from the paycheck.

The mix of politics and government employment in Wisconsin has produced financial disaster, and placed into question the future availability of all of their pensions.  Reform is tough, but should have started 20 years ago.

Yeah if Wisconsin can ever get a warm clime in the winter, beautiful coastlines, Disney World/Epcot theme park mebbe their state taxes wouldn't exist.

I doubt the two of us will ever agree on what is an appropriate tax rate. I will say that during the most robust economic period of US history the tax rate on the wealthiest amreicans was in the 90% range. We built the highway system, our educational system was significantly more proficient and we put men on the moon. Granted 15 years earlier we pretty much destroyed our overseas competitors ability to produce anything more than hula hoops.

It seems to me and I could be wrong, that your perspective puts the fiasco at the feet of the middle class. My perspective is that the very rich are to blame.

Speaking of which, I spent the entire day here today, spending money I saved from not having confiscatory taxes for bloated, unsustainable government pensions.

     Gabor.  Good stuff.  You should take the camera outside.  Show us Sweden.


If someone wants to support a portable camera. to me. ))
Then one could go about recording. Where I went on the street
A camera Could be Used in the head.

Or if I found the black job
Make black money.
Without paying tax.

Then I would buy a camera could be used in the head.

I just found this and... I'm sitting here crying.  It's so beautiful.  Why can't I write poems like that?

Hey, feeling dicky double posting here , but, based on the above quote, isn't it very obvious that Gabor Sweden751110 is actually Noory's best attempt at being a regular guy on the forum?  Really think about it.  I, for one, gotta hand it to him.  He's getting a good handle on the QWERTY thing.  He can work on his grammar later.  But if you read through his posts, the guy makes a lot of sense, if you kind of squint your eyes, read from right to left, play the white album backwards loudly, and don't think too hard.  In fact, I suspect that if printed out in full, there's a good chance that the text will contain some type of Da Vinci Bible Code secretly embedded in it which details the plain facts about why he sucks so much as a radio host.  I'm good with just reading his commendable contributions to this fine forum.  It sure beats listening to him talk.

I'm in court (traffic) and there's a woman in the row in front of me with the words "apple bottom" embroidered on her jacket. Unintentional self parody?

I've met alot of women that were shaped like a pear. small on top & wide in the middle.

Between your Apple Bottom Dame, and the pear shaped women I run into here we should open a produce stand.

just so i am clear ... the nonsense in wisconsin is the governor's attempt to eliminate organized labor.  also ... Gov. Walker is so obviously in the pocket of the Koch brothers that he's almost as big a human shit pile as Joe Barton from Texas. 


the parade of demons continues

Hey,

Not to distract from fruity butt imagery, (I enjoy all fruit, fresh, local, organic, preferred), but being a Tucson area homey, I thought I'd step out on a limb for a moment, I guess I'm feeling safe here...

One of the things that has been bothering me about the Giffords shooting spree is this:

This is not political really.  Rep. Giffords happens to represent my district.  I voted, (I'm a dreamer), I did not vote for her.  I did not even get close to voting for her.

I gave up hunting many decades ago.  I am opposed to dingbats with weapons, whatever their psych/socio/political skew, and find it hard to picture a scenario where non-defensive violence against another would be justified.  And all that.

However, what's been gnawing at me is this- How the hell is it that this tweek made it out of that parking lot alive?  I'm saying, it's hard to read in the local paper about the "alleged" gunman, the "accused" killer, alright?  Excuse you me, this fuk shot a little girl, adults, AND- MY representative!  I don't care that she was (IMO) messing up my country assface, where there's life there's hope!  I take my family shopping at the same corner- DickWinkle!   Don't shoot my freakin representative and expect to live beyond the parking lot!  MFer!

Sorry.  This was just bugging me.  I think I'll go feel better now.

:-[

I really wonder how many of these snapped psycho gunmen like the Tuscon asshole and others have a history of Prozac and other anti-depressants.  I have a theory that these drugs destroy the conscience in susceptable individuals.  I have no evidence of it, just a gut feeling. It in no way excuses the behavior, but I do wonder.  I hate that our society sees the need to medicate the living shit out of ourselves with all kinds of drugs legal and illegal. (the word hashish comes from the arabic word for assassin, who apparently smoked the stuff before going out to kill.)  I think there is a correlation of the escalated random violence in our society and our increasing drug use. 

Aldous Huxley was right on about this... "there is always soma, delicious soma, half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon..."

The animal was one of those who were "almost nuts, but not quite", until he buried his nasty, useless head into illegal drugs.  European universities still have a semblance of freedom of thought, so it is not too difficult to get real, scholarly studies about plain old POT and other drugs pushing someone into permanent, serious mental illness.  American universities are too busy obfuscating the truth so they will not jeopardize their next hit.

For perspective however, there are hundreds of freshly made new drug cartel and dehydrated immigrant bodies scattered about the Tucson area each year.  Because of immigration/drug war fatigue, we tend to notice them not so much.

Me thinks he was sikfuk period.  IMHO, pharmacological causation is a crutch used by too many idiot doper psychopaths, and those of us left looking for explanations.

suspected killer, alleged gun man ... I have to think that's just semantics. I don't think anyone doubts his guilt. He's obviously insane

what makes me nuts is how fast the conversation seemed to change from 'we need to do more to prevent this sort of thing from happening' to 'don't take my guns away fascist'. There was a similar shooting in chapel hill 16 years ago. Wendell Williams walked up and down our downtown area shooting people randomly. it's happened so many times since then it just baffles me. we'll never do anything about it

Gah I started to respond to The General's post about the possibility of an antidepressant being at the bottom of the behavior... it disappeared before I hit post.

There have been many writings on the dangers of antidepressants... most of it outright crap. Antidepressants are one of the first line medicines used to allevieate some form of despair.

Also to note alcohol does more damage physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, financially and to the family than all other "illegal drugs". There is no society on this planet now or in the past that has not used some form of intoxicant. For every post one can make on the sinister methods of big pharma (they are not without sin) I can point to legislation or the lack thereof with sinister methods. Legislatures are loathe to vote against an undereducated and phobic constituuency that by and large thinks mental illness is some form of fakery.

It isnt popular to post the supposition that medicine may be better served with a socialist point of view on a mostly libertarian forum but so be it. Like it or not it is true. Mental illness does not lend well to those that can hold down jobs, forget the high paying ones.

One quick anecdote I had a patient many years ago with a masters degree from MIT and in his late 20's had a major psychotic break that took months to recover from using the strongest of psychotropics. Sadly the longer it takes to bring someone back from a psychotic break is a bad indicator for how they will fair in the future. Because this man had just finished his Masters he was still under his parents insurance and it was a very good plan... guess what... the benefits ran out in less than a year... I do not know what happened to this man but trust me his potential to lead the productive life that he had planned is gone.


Sorry for the screed. Anitdepressnats do much more good than the harm that is painted on the front page of the enquirer.

onan ... i have to agree with you.  responsibly used/prescribed ... anti-depressants/anxiolytics/etc can be extremely helpful. 

however, i knew a couple girls who got prescriptions for clonazepam and were popping it like Pez candy.  mixing it with booze.  and they had no business being on that med in the first place.  it was prescribed by a general practitioner who clearly wasn't doing anything to monitor how they were using their meds.  it was like they had bottomless refills.  i think that someone eventually wised up to what they were doing and shutdown their party train.  frankly i don't see how they were able to function.  it was a little scary.  i told them what they were doing was pretty damn dangerous

Squarely with Onan on this one.  Market Report noted that Saks Fifth Avenue reported substantial earnings increases while Walmart, Tarket, K-Mart, et al all reported losses.  It appears the recession is over...if your favorite store is Saks.
