here's Dr. Sharp lecturing about the relationship between dinosaurs and the body of christ, as well as the hostile beliefs that the social liberals are forcing upon the sons/daughters of christ. 


My father always said that life would be boring without idiots.

I cling to that.

Well, I think we can expect the state to pass a law next year mandating creationism being taught in all Kansas schools.

I can see how the pass through model of business can be an incentive to some, but I don't think they should pay nothing.. At least give them .5% or something. They should contribute like the rest of us.

The money will either go back into the business to expand or be taxed as income by someone.

Kind of like how every dollar paid out in the form of unemployment or welfare goes back into the economy immediately to be taxed on purchases/income tax...

Except SOME of this money will find its way into off shore tax shelters, since it is clearly not as essential to survival as the two examples I stated above.

Pulling more money out of the economy in the form of taxes from small business owners will not stimulate the economy. It's been proven over and over.

much of that money ends up as bombs and foreign aid and other crap that doesn't help Americans, either.

Nonsense, everyone knows that every dollar of welfare is spent on black market drugs and funneled to Mexican cartels

The tobacco industry would be mumped without welfare. So would the frozen food industry.


Is this the thread where some occutard said that lower marginal tax rates increased the use of offshore tax shelters?  Just think about how stupid that notion is.

Some tax between 0-1% is not going to hurt it either. 

I'm all for low taxes but businesses large and small should chip in a few bucks for the pavement and utilities that help support it.

Pretty much correct, shifting of taxes between income/sales & use/property tax is a dumb game.  The main idea is to increase your tax base or keep budgets low. Kansas has pretty liberal exemptions for corporations/businesses when it comes to taxes, hence the whole Kansas is open for business thing.   I'm not sure how effective Kansas policies are in bringing in business from other states and if it has actually increased the tax base.  I imagine Manhattan is going to be reaping windfalls from Brownback policies, which is cool. But I never see anything remotely intelligent when talking about brownback or what he is doing. I don't know, I don't live in Kansas,  Perhaps someone could send me some links on things he does that are good/bad?

TIA

Are you seriously telling me that college students have to pay for a bigger share of their education than the taxpayers at large? Are you rough ridin' kidding me?! What kind of society are we living in? :runaway:

If we got rid of worthless degrees then people could get an education that they can actually do something with, get a good job, pay taxes, and fund more worthwhile degrees.

Yes, totally agree. If taxpayers would foot more of the bill, we could send way more kids to college. That's the problem with this economy, not enough college graduates. Especially not enough liberal arts degrees.
