Tom, not the guns, the Canadian Border. I watch and listen on the 2nd Amendment issues knowing that my closet is well stocked.

You and I have some disagreements on that issue, but we are probably not as far apart as some would think.

I must agree here. Disrupting a private event has absolutely nothing to do with "rights" or freedom of speech. We should all learn enough respect for our fellow citizens to at least listen.

Yes, the City should accept a Short Sale under one condition. The City gets paid back every single dime that is owed and Alan Lanning takes the entire loss on the short sale.

Followed by:

Section 8

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

How do you come up with the idea that taxes are "unconstitutional" ?

I am sure that I gave you that information in the link George. If you take. the time to read the information I presented, the links to your questions are towards the bottom. Give us some research to support your opinion.

The point I made above is that although Denmark rejects the claim that they are a "Socialist" country, The biggest point opponents make in objecting to Bernie Sanders is that he is a die hard "Socialist". Funny thing is, Denmark individuals pay roughly the same rates that US Citizens paid from roughly the 1930's until Ronald Reagan in the 80's.

Current exchange rate is about .15 cents on the US dollar. 422,000 DKK = $63,300ish

"The state income tax has two income brackets (base and top). In 2014 income from DKK 42,900 to DKK 421,000 is taxed at 5.83% and income above DKK 422,000 is taxed an additional 15%. Other taxes include Municipal income tax, currently in the range 23% - 28%, though on average 24.09%. A Health contribution of 8% apply on all income above the tax free allowance in year 2014, though from there the health contribution is getting merged with the regular income tax by one percent per year. Under the Danish tax system, it is possible for a high-wage earner to pay up to 51.5% of their total income after gross tax, giving a total of 57% of total income."

In closing, no I am not calling for anything like what Denmark does. I am just poking holes in the argument that lower tax rates are the cure for everything that ails us. Lowered tax rates are one of the fundamental reasons debt is exploding and they need to be addressed before this country can even begin to pay those debts off. Re-structuring/reducing healthcare costs must also be part of that conversation.

And yet they manage to provide universal healthcare.

"The Danish health insurance system can be split between public and private policies. It is also possible to obtain supplementary private health insurance to cover any treatment that is not covered under your public insurance policy."

No Mark, it is because you do not seem able to separate "Fact" from "Opinion" and your post here proves my point.
