Tax all of the income made by strippers and prositutes.

That is all.

How about making Iraq repay us for every dime we've spent in liberating their fucking hellhole of a country by taking the same amount we've spent in free oil, and adding $1 billion for every American life lost to the total.

There's no Revenue Deficit, there's a Spending Frenzy.
The more money they get, the more they will spend.

The gov't gets a limit-free credit card and we get the bill.

Stop blaming the .gov for everything.

Half of this country's problems are due to trade deficits, which are right smack on the shoulders of the consumer. Sending dollars out of the country kills our manufacturing base, throws people out of work and increases their dependency on .gov programs.

Yep







BOTH parties are "big government" parties now - to talk about one being for smaller govt more so than the other is like saying that cyanide is MORE poisonous than rat poison - pretty irrelevant if your wife already put it in your coffee.

Yeah - so my analogies are bad. Tell me something I don't know.

Sell government property: land, buildings, equipment, etc... It's just like a business having a liquidation sale.

If the mayor in Seattle gets his way the strip clubs will close down anyway.

The proposed new rules, would, among other changes, require lighting bright enough to make "all objects" clearly visible; prohibit strippers from taking tips directly ("tips for dancers must be placed in a container provided by the club"); and impose "a four-foot rule for lap dances," according to the mayor's paradoxical press release. Under the new regulations, strip-club owners and managers would be directly responsible for any violations of the law.

They've proposed these rules because Bob Davis has filed a claim against the city fighting the 17 year old moratorium, that was revoted on and renewed by the city council every year, that capped the city's strip-club licenses at five. Seattle has 500 registered nude dancers.

Yes but when those countries trade dollars for their currency, the value of the dollar drops, making U.S manufacturing more affordable and foreign goods more expensive. Now if China would allow their currency to float...

Tax licensed weed farmers $50 an ounce. Have controlled distribution like alcohol: truck leaves = tax paid. Deficit = *poof*.

Instead of the money for Americas #1 cash crop going into the hands of criminals and foreign dictators I'd much rather see it used to cut my other taxes.

It's time everyone faced up to the fact that if there was no demand, there would be no supply. Better to bring the market in the open than rely on black market forces to control it.
