    The thing is, that "something else" often is a...

    The NHS should be accurately reporting why someone is in hospital and what they are being treated for.

  2. The government rarely manages to do things...

    The government could easily do it.

    And do it cheaper.

    The government is prevented from doing it by the Congress.

    And the Congress is bribed to not do it by the entire corporate machinery...

    The subject was stocks, not home loans.[/QUOTE]

    The subject was proceeds of loans. You meant to only tax the big fish, you didn't realize what would really happen.
  4. You would make them sell it off bit by bit to pay...

    How does that work? Taking a small percentage of the increase in their wealth means taking to company?[/QUOTE]

    You would make them sell it off bit by bit to pay that tax.
  5. Exactly the same argument would apply to the...

    Slow down, there; you may want to re-check your math.

    IF the interest rate is LESS than the rate at which the stock appreciates THEN you do better borrowing EVEN IF THE CAP_GAINS TAX IS...

    In general going with the flow is the right thing...

    But it’s always best to go with the flow. If all vehicles are recklessly going 45 and one guy is Magooing it at 25, Mr. Magoo is just creating another hazard.

    Bankers won't take stock as collateral, but brokers will. It's called a margin loan.[/QUOTE]

    Nevertheless it’s a perpetual personal money machine. Like having dozens of 100+m$ homes that double...
  9. Nope. I just looked up our house on the county...

    Let's look at the reason that is.

    I expect that the reason loan culture inflates the way it does is, the middle class can't afford a house because the class who organized their own army and gang...
  10. Took me a bit to figure it out but you're right. ...

    No, they don't.

    They spend the proceeds of loans against their portfolios.[/QUOTE]

  11. And the end effect is to take their companies...

    Why can't it be considered income? All it would take would be a little change in the tax code.[/QUOTE]

    And the end effect is to take their companies away from them.

    Note that many of us that support wide legalization do not think the drugs are harmless, but rather that the drugs are less harmful than the drug war.

    As far as I'm concerned all the recreational...
  14. But note the inverse--not supporting a group is...

    This all makes sense, the only issue some humans seem to have is when someone agrees with a message (aka group) it doesn't mean they agree with every action done by another person who happens to...

    The existence of drug companies doesn't stop the government from doing it.

    If government can do an adequate job they should simply demonstrate they can by doing it.

    It has everything to do with it.

    Price of service =/ cost of labor. It isn't even close. Jebus! Raising the labor rate doesn't even increase the cost of that worker to the company 1 to 1, forget...

  23. Not all men, just those of us in this discussion.

    Not quite that bad--his actions simply rendered the vaccine useless, not harmful.

    On the other hand, providing a fake potentially lifesaving drug is attempted murder in my book.
