I have not been interacting with Land of Freedom on issues that concern you.


Another lie. The last time, you said you never reported me at all when I proved you had because you admitted doing it in another post.

When you're ready to turn over a new leaf I'll be ready to excuse all your bad behaviour of the past. I think you've actually started to demonstrate that you want to join the adults on this forum.

And I also think that you can be one of the best contributors of the lot when you try.


What you mean is that you'll declare anything I say childish and report me nonstop until I argue for your brand of socialism without stepping out of line and saying what I actually think.

I know this is my only option if I don't want to get banned.

So ban me.

Oppo, nobody is trying to ban you.

Here's a good article for discussion on why we need libertarian government soon.

https://www.rt.com/op-ed/434360-american-society-myths-lee-camp/

Can we start fresh by discussing one or more of the 8 points being made by the author?

I'm not going to beg you but I'm asking your respectfully for the good of the forum. Gone are the hippos, tigers, and vulcans from your posts now and I fully expect that if they stay away then the 'lizard' accusations will too.

I promise to back you vociferously if you stay straight and it results in the boss doing the sam old with the lizard nonsense.

Maybe that would be a test run on referring his bad behaviour to Land of Freedom?

Right. I can't make an analogy because you don't understand what one is. Gotcha.

I can't ask whether I have the right to own a tiger in a libertarian world because the fact that the question includes an animal makes it ridiculous.

And that sicko of a mod will back you up, because your reports are the only things on this forum he reads.

As far as I'm concerned you can use an animal as an analogy. But I can't control what boss Sickler is going to do with it? Keep it limited and under control and I've promised to have your back when he comes out with the 'lizard' nonsense.

Maybe now, let's move on and join the conversation on libertarian party change?

There is a great fear in libertarians of talking about just what specific regulations. should be slashed.

You already have my agreement on some will have to go!

They'll be more careful about where they work in the future. Try to avoid being propped up by bubbles.
Are you pretending, or are you actually completely ignorant of economics?

He's a bright lad when he's not operating with the lizard brain boss. And unlike you, he's not totally controlled by a resentment of all authority. It's just his mom he wants to kill.

I'm aware that it's extremely difficult to not have at least some of the proverbial dominoes fall on you when a bubble bursts, but you can avoid working in an industry that's going to feel the primary shockwave.

Fine, which industry will "feel the primary shockwave" this time?

An even better question, which industry will be immune from the fallout? Will my local independent hardware store survive?

It's not all that much better to have the company you work for go bankrupt and lay you off a week or a month after the "primary shockwave" than it is to go down first.

Maybe it's better to be laid off first, so you have first dibs on whatever jobs might be left.

Probably government employees will be safe?

Maybe it will be like the New Deal, and there will be a "need" to hire even more government employees?

The Eurozone  just released very dismal GDP growth figures for Q2:

Growth for the EU is under .4% (collectively).   Shocked

France's GDP growth is under .3%!!   Shocked

The culprit?  Severe Inflation.

Inflation is a growth-killer -  it's the 2nd worst tax there is.  (Income Tax is the worst).

That's too simplistic Chief. The broad statement of the problem is too much government control of everything and anything.

Too much redistribution of wealth.

Too much punishment for incentive and ambition.

Too much government control.

Too many expensive cronies to support.

Too much sloth enabled.

Too much compelled distortion of the economy by Central Bank cronies.




Unless you are a crony...
