Things you just don't get - Page 1575

post #23611 of 24145

i think all candidates since at least reagan have been "in favor" of tax code reform - then once they run the show they realize that a convoluted system with draconian penalties favors the house. 

 

EDIT: oh shit i just realized I'm not in CE. disregard the above. i'd motorboat Christina Hendricks to completion

Like many things the government "should" do, there is a whole industry that benefits greatly from it not being done. Usually they are the ones who know the most about the preexisting system...intuit, h&r block, and all sorts of related firms would all take huge losses with even somewhat minor reforms (like just sending every wage earner a pre-filled 1040ez with the info the IRS already has).

Same is true for people who support universal healthcare. If you want to do it, you need to decimate the insurance industry. You need to tell a many billion dollar industry to just fuck off if you really want to do it.

Lot of unhappy people out there when their entire career just gets vaporized.

I'm just confused how Trump lost 900mill in a year and calls himself a genius.

You're at a stop light. The idiot in front of you, usually under 30 and female for this phenomena, is texting away and doesn't see the light has changed to green. You give your horn a toot after a reasonable pause. They always seem to get upset your driving has interrupted their texting.

That's why you do it when it is red, so they crash.

It's kind of scary how many of them just accelerate immediately. I'm sure you could get a decent number of drive through a red light.


I have very little patience for people who are obviously farting around when the light turns green. They get like two seconds and then I'm honking. There are many too many lights around here for me to deal with that noise.

I just don't understand the mentality that makes so many of these idiots upset when you point out to them the rest of the world is not willing to wait for their texting.

now that you mention it the track record isn't great for the ladies of that show: the blonde older sister died IRL (i wanna say she had some addiction) and Mila Kunis ended up marrying the insufferable ashton kutcher.

Indeed, the bird is often flown. I think sometimes getting a smack from a stranger over one's actions would improve overall character but that's more trouble than it's worth for the smacker these days.

I like to smile and give them a thumbs up.
