This may be a really strange question but let me explain. I have an ivory bead necklace with a small ivory cross that was given to me by my great gran before she died. It was a gift given to her and…Continue

I'm sure this has been brought up in the past but here we go. What level of grooming can be considered manly?While I don't particularly care what others think about my grooming habits I am intrigued…Continue

I took the VIA Survey of Character Strengths and Judgement, critical thinking, and open mindedness came as my top strength. This is what they say about it:Thinking things through and examining them…Continue

I was just wondering who on here has been on or is on a ketogenic or LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) diet. If so, how did you find the experience in a very general way? And what advice would you offer for…Continue

"I agree that you don't see how. If you give money to someone, it has to come from somewhere. When you give money to those who don't have it, it does not get reinvested, it just gets spent. That is why the majority of lottery winners are…"

"We already build streets, schools, and parks (and a good thing, too).  But somehow our soak-the-rich schemes now end up enriching people who are already employed and either a) have powerful unions or b) are already rich. Isn't this…"

Jay D replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"I mostly agree with you. Maybe dont give the money you take form the super rich to the poor, use it to build streets, schools and cultural worthy things like swimming pools. This will help the poor since it creates jobs and helps…"

Sir replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"The poor already have low taxes and the negative "Earned Income Tax Credit" tax.  So we'll need to try something else. My suggestion would be lower the barriers to people starting or expanding small business."

Jay D replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"Hm yes how do you distribute it is whole different question. An easy way would be by changing taxes. Tax capital gains and lower the tax for the poor or even pay them a negative tax. I also dont buy anymore that the rhich create jobs. Small…"

"This may not go as far as disagreement, but we also need to consider what that milliionaire's money is doing:  it's in a bank, being lent to businesses who produce things, and that's important. The reason I'm not going as…"

"Of course, it doesn't help that when you finally get to realize the fruits of your sacrifices, the government, like the animals in the fairy tale The Little Red Hen, steps up to "help" you dispose of your bread."

"Why would I feel targeted? I know this is a very old post but I've not looked at it and want to answer. Although I am not in the top 1% I am in the top 5% to 10% of earners in the US.  So, once the 1% are done with who do you think will be…"

"I dont see how it would hurt the economy. If you give money to those who dont have much they spend it, this is good for the economy. If you have someone who has a million , he buys 4 houses, rents them out and doesnt need to work anymore, while one…"

Michael D. Denny replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"One, you can't change it without damaging the economy. Two, it exists because very few people, as a percentage of the population, are willing to do what it takes to succeed financially. Three, once you achieve a certain level of financial…"

"BOTH political sides are going to favor the 1%...simply because that's who butters their bread.  Your $50.00 to the politico of your choice isn't even a rounding error in what Souros or the Kochs pass out to individual candidates."

"Looks like aspiring new businessmen aren't doing what they've always done, at least, not as often.  If so, that's a bad thing.  "

Native Son replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"Opinion piece inthe Washington Post the other day.  Author opined that most of the inequity seemed to be found in the increase in the top 10% of industries--across the board.  Bankers are only doing exactly what bankers have always done."

Sir replied to Liam's discussion The inequality of wealth distribution in the group The Great Debate
"From what I've read, income inequality has continued to increase since '09.  More alarming, I think, is lack of income mobility. This is a scary explanation:  that the barriers to entrepeneurship and small business are such now…"
