I don't think George understands or can remember what "evil" is really like and why it would be appealing, especially how powerlust and desire can corrupt the spirit of men. Anakin's journey could have been the journey of the anti-hero but George is too ham-handed and child friendly to really give us a taste of it. Bad casting and terriblle scripts didn't help. Then there is the entire "little creatures in your cells' business...where he completely lost me. Lucas is a genius and innovator and no one can take his accomplishments away from him, but his best movies are the ones where someone helps him write the script and someone else directs it.
The EPA isn't hostile to fossil fuels...but it has a reponsibility to protect you from them. You do realize that's what it's for? Fossil fuel companies tend to do a lot of the polluting...seriously Wesley...you do realize that pollution is a real thing... It wasn't invented by "lefty".
How come the defenders of these international conglomerates are so angry?
The fossil fuel giants are OK. Where does the urgency and anger come from?
Where does that 4% figure come from? I mean, we know there is sales tax on a gallon of gas like everything else. States get that mostly. Maybe it's the retailer profit or some other way to juggle the numbers to make the victim case for these super rich and powerful entities (that aren't Americans). You and Sniper should go bowling and discuss where to get "reports" that make you feel like you wanna.
You're probably on the Tax Foundation's e-mail list. You wouldn't want to wait for their next breathtaking "report". You can't even stand me not thinking they are victims. You have to stand up and insist that they are....
Now go empty your bedpan.
Only sure things are death and taxes...I have no idea what you are getting at.
Not articles scum..."blog posts". This isn't a magazine or newspaper if it ever was one.
So give it to them? What crawled up your arse?
You can use the reply feature...
"Real hourly compensation in America, including non-wage benefits, increased 41% on average from 1973 to 2007."
Yeah that's exciting news sans the rise in the cost of living...the cost of food, rent, housing, cars, and everything else. Granted, it is a purposeful omission from Howard's post but:
The Consumer Price Index went from 44.4 in 1973 to 207.3 in 2007, according to the BLS. In plain English, that means it cost almost five times as much to buy goods and services such as food in 2007 as it did in 1973. Debt has risen steadily, too. Average household debt was $27,600 in 1962 (adjusted for inflation), according to Federal Reserve Board data. In 2004, it was $79,100.
In context, I don't know what Howard's examples are even for, exceptt to give the wrong impression and false context for the discussion.
What, you couldn't wait until I answered you above?
