I guess the idea is that Madison Avenue would have been at the social cutting edge, the people at Heinz or Dow Chemical wouldn't have been smoking pot at the office. I'm not sure if that is true.I also didn't catch on that Scarlett was skipping work to bang Harry which changes a lot of the tenor of their fight, if you got it.
Thanks. I checked out your various links and suggestions, all of which were helpful (though searching through Haaretz archives was too big a chore) and many were pretty awesome. I would give the UCLA dip who proposed the "queer state" solution to Middle East conflict honorable mention behind the Australian guy who recast Islam as that which can not be deconstructed. He is definitely going places.The Sam Harris/Glenn Greenwald fight was also awesome on an Alien vs. Predator...
Sorry. I thought this thread was about feminists not criticizing Islam. I assume you aren't saying feminists let Obama off the hook because he's a Muslim. Otherwise, I don't see the relevance. Or is Ms. Harris a Muslim? Even if that was true, I'm not sure what you mean.
It would be nice if there were some actual examples of "feminists" whose double standards we were supposed to be angry about. Lacking that it is fail.
The underlying irony of all complaints about admissions to the Ivies as the very most elite universities is that most people who want to attend them are doing so almost entirely as a means of entry to the prestige industries, but the Ivies construct their admissions policies precisely to produce a set of graduates that those industries want. If the Ivies did not produce that group, IB's/consulting/media etc. would do their entry level hiring elsewhere. Those industries...
It would be pretty cool if they had jerseys that said "El Heato".(I guess they actually say El Heat, because that's what the local people say when they talk about the team in Spanish'. )
Sorry, no, beer taxes are already too high. Lets stick to our common ground on wealth taxes.
Dutch style wealth taxes. It was your idea, actually, so really I am agreeing with you.
I am assuming that it is obvious that since labor and capital, human, physical and otherwise, are the source of income, ultimately government revenues will have to come from those sources. I AM assuming that it is going to be harder and harder to get income from pure labor and the burden will be distributed on human and financial capital in some way. Given the current distribution of taxes, property taxes and luxury taxes are certainly ways to reallocate taxes toward...
I guess you are right, though we seem to always underestimate the progress of the DPRK nuclear program. Also, don't they have a bunch of SCUD style missles. Even with conventional high explosives, that could do a lot of damage.First, I doubt you could find any significant number of Germans who regret reunification. Second, though its clear there would be large upfront costs, I think its a mistake to view 15 million extra Korean workers as a long-term charity case. I think...
