Hey Washington Post:

So Harry Reid is the senator from Nevada, not Utah. Kinda ruins the whole "Fact-checking" part when you can't get that right

Civil_War2_Time: You probably live where there aren't many small businesses hiring at all, so you attack. I live in the heart of the small-business hiring world in the US. EIP.


How a normal person learns business tax law: reads things explaining the law.
How civil_war_time learns business tax law: moves next to a small business. Somehow this transfers knowledge.

Pwning several Farkers at a time is glorious.

Attacks by the "Fark Liberal Brigade" (my original terminology from 2004) are always welcome.

EIP if you want to get pwned and quit this site. I'm 2-2 so far. I'd like to be 10-10.

Civil_War2_Time: You know you're wrong on the Econ./Acct. 101 equation, and are still a small-business tax expert?

Once again...Assets + Owner's Liability = Owner's Equity.

Love it! Moar!


wtf? Assets = Liability + Equity. It's the basic double-entry accounting equation. Are you on crack?


Facts are wholly against you. Deductions on your tax return do not equate to whether you're "poor" or not. You originally said you were hired by poor people. That's a complete lie.

I'm hired by poor people fairly often. Poor people file tax returns too, and they hire me to do it.

So a self-employed software developer working from home, with $100,000 in revenue and $4,000 in expenses is poorer than a construction contractor with $400,000 in revenue and $350,000 in expenses?

You can always tell when you've successfully fact-raped an authoritarian, by how they completely become unhinged from the conversation and start screaming that they won.

I've yet to figure out if they know they lost, so they just want to be insufferable pricks about it, or if they are that deluded.

Civil_War2_Time: You're saying "broke" people are the same as "poor" people.They are not the same, and you should know that by now. I'm educating you, fwiw.

"Poor" people don't hire or own businesses. Many "broke" business owners do try (and do hire) to try and not be broke any longer.

No "poor" person has ever hired you. That's a fact you can't dispute.


Tautology for the win. Sure, a business owner may have a negative net worth and little income after payroll and expenses, but since 'poor people never hire anyone,' they can't be poor!

Herp a derp a doo!

CheekyMonkey: Wooly Bully: CheekyMonkey: Hurr, durr. The "other side" lies, so "our" lies are OK.

\you people sound like 6-year-olds.
\\wake me up when you find a politician that tells the truth

OK, smartass, Rise'n'shine.

I live in New York - you know, that state just over there that always laughs at yours?

We have this senator named Kirsten Gillibrand. If you can show that she lied about anything, I'll take a solemn vow never to laugh at New Jersey again.

Does lying for Phillip-Morris count? Probably not. You'd like an example from when she was a politician not a liar lawyer, correct?

How about the ad where she claims "I passed a law"? Who made her dictator? Last I heard, the whole Congress votes to pass legislation. A technicality? Perhaps. A lie? Yes.

In the same ad linked above, she also states "I took on my own party to end automatic pay raises for Congress". But she voted FOR a congressional pay raise? I guess that's technically not a lie, but is certainly disingenuous, don't you think?

In short, while KG might be a more principled politician than most, she's not quite the shining beacon of truth that Diogenes was searching for. Going back to sleep now...


Oh, pfft, none of those are lies. Either you know that and are lying, or...well, New Jersey.

Then again, everything out of a liberal's mouth is a lie. They have just brainwashed too many low intelligence sub-groups that it isn't.


If you see a burning building and you run inside, causing you to die from smoke inhalation, you were not assassinated.

Tragic, yes, but not 4 assassinations.

Whenever anyone asserts that X group does Z as often as group Y does, I ask them to please name the mystical force which makes certain that this is so.

Egalitarian ideologies are good. Egalitarian social views are for fools. American blacks kill more people per capita than their white counterparts. Now, that's not good, but is it because they're blacker or because they're poorer? Is it because of what and who they are, or is it because of what and who the rest of us are? Is it a Black Problem or is it a Society Problem? Is the solution something to be done to black people or something that should be done FOR black people? Is this single violence statistic a mere symptom of a greater suffering that we ignore because it doesn' t happen in Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard?

To deny the fact is to deny the thought of WHY. Sometimes, the WHY is a very, very important thought that should be thought of by many people. Pretending that our two party system is either angels v demons OR demons v demons of completely equal malice is silly.

I've never understood the whole "lying in the name of my political party/Jesus/whatever" thing. It just makes the whole group look worse.

This was the first year my grandma got to vote since moving to the US, and she didn't understand a lot of the things on her ballot. I spent days (three? four?) trying to carefully explain everything, researching it on the internet if I needed to do so. I didn't want to sway her vote, cuz it's hers, not mine. However, when we were watching one of the  presidential debates, she yelled at me "You vote for that black man! That other man is a (insert several expletives in Norwegian here)".

I almost didn't even mail off her ballot. If you can't remember the name of the prez, should you even be voting? Was a bit scary to think about, truth be told.
