    Re: Re: I'm Offended, Mike

    The real question from your statement, is why do we NOT tax the wealthy? Or why do we allow businesses to use loopholes to avoid taxation?

    We need a simpler system that allows for some limited policies to encourage business in disadvantaged areas?

    And the idea while it may not be enough to live on by itself, is not correct. Here in the United States you can live on a basic income of $1500 Per month, I admit that you have to live with someone to offset rent or the mortgage note. And I admit that it would not be the best living conditions. But, then at least you have a choice, and you could develop your own business.

    In essence this would help small businesses all over the place, as many people would do something that "Interests" them and potentially create so many new small businesses that we would have an evolution in goods and services.

    Re: A Nice Idea, but...

    While I agree with some of your concerns. The overall improvements to society outweigh all the concerns. Please take a moment and read this link.

    Simply going too far

    Really they cannot get their staff in order, cannot teach our children the necessary things they need to know to obtain a job or to make a career. But, they can harass them about things like this. We have schools with Metal Detectors, weekly checks on lockers, lockdowns of school rooms, and now teachers with guns. I feel for our students today. They are in miserable conditions. We as parents know that our kids are going to experiment. That is part of the challenge of parenting.

    I guess this is partly our fault, for forcing more and more on the school system. We expect them to teach our children, so we gave them both too little power and too much power to accomplish this.

    Since the teen has admitted to having a drug, I understand the schold giving her the 10 days. But, since no testing was done, they should not go further.

    And really, no after school programs or any assistance for home schooling? I bet they used the money for athletic programs instead. School is about learning and that should be the primary focus. Not mater what the learning is about. In this case, she learned that your personal things in a public school are not personal. Good lesson, bad way to teach.

    Dear Techdirt.

    I am issuing a DMCA shakedown on the post labeled "Those damn dirty apes!!". I officially own the rights too these very words as they were issued from the very mouth of my great great cousin who was my 3rd cousin second removed from my step grandad on my mothers side.

    Due to the legal issues and the fact that I need the money to pay for my Starbucks Premium Iced Coffee fix. I am requesting that you take any comment that uses that particular phrase from this internet board forthwith and to track down and remove all instances where someone has linked to the post and cached the information in any way across the internet tube thingy.

    Thank you very much and have a good day...
