Okay, somebody is drunk and has a 'hate the world' attitude. When you sober talk to me.

Because, unlike people like you, I want control of my own future. The capitalist opportunity. You can continue to be a sheep because you're too lazy to build something of your own and then demand that the person who DOES build something finance your laziness. That is the epitome of a leech. A taker from society rather than a producer. You are the one who is only concerned with your little world. I produce products, services, jobs, sponsor charity events, help build a church, care for elderly. You and your type of thinking are not worth the air you consume.

Cushy little bit of heaven? Guess you have no clue what it is to be a business owner. We business owners are the ones who risked the money to start the business, spend 24/7 worrying about the business, pay higher tax rates on our income, match our employees SS and FICA contributions, contribute to insurance and retirement funds, give them paid time off for vacations when we get no work in return. And those are just the headaches with employees. Hell, I haven't had a vacation in many years. I don't have anyone to depend on for my retirement or insurance (at a higher rate). Then start dealing with the government and vendors. It is insane the amount of state and local regulations a business must deal with, all with fees and taxes that employees have no clue about. Just a liquor license here in Texas costs an average of $7000 a year. Sales taxes, property taxes, liquor taxes. At least in Texas we don't have an income tax. Don't whine to me with your socialist drivel. Grow a set and start your own business and then come back to this conversation.

Then the problem isn't a matter of wages. The problem is high taxes. Taxation icreases the cost of everything and must be passed along. Increasing taxes on a business just passes that increase to the consumer. If you worked as a tax secretary, it should have been obvious to you.

I agree 100% with the Dominicans against this choice for Ambassador. It is a slap in the face to the culture of the Dominican Republic. How about sending him to a Muslim country? See what the State Department's response is!

 I think we Ags at this point are just having fun with it. The changes, stepping up to the challenges, new coach, new offense, QB, excitement of a young team, the prospect of our recruiting for next year. As I watch the faces of our guys out there, the looks on the faces of the 12th Man, just everyone seems to be enjoying what is happening. We are far ahead of where I thought we would be. Our past experiences with LSU have taught us respect our adversary. The legends of the SEC are awe inspiring and I don't think that Ags have given that a lack of attention. And I am not saying that defensively to the author. I just say it as a statement that the old time fans of the SEC may have had the idea that A&M might come to the table with a lot of swagger, but we do come to the conference with our hats in our hand....and brass knuckles as well.
