You guys are so adorable.  Nice passive-aggressive rant.
Don't be defensive.  When you can finally accept your place in society, it will be a big burden off your shoulders and people will start to take you more seriously.

Here's the problem, you think because you've run a business, that makes you an expert in economics.  It's sort of like believing that because you know how to drive a car makes you a master mechanic.  What's really laughable is that you can't see the difference.
Again, your being too defensive.  You don't understand business nor economics.  You've never had to.  That's fine.  Maybe someday.  I don't think you're ever too old to take that step.  If you do, I hope you post about it here because I'd be very happy for you.

Now, any time you'd like to debate economics, you let me know, or you keep pretending, like Solar to be disinterested to keep from actually having to have your ignorance exposed.
Why would I want to discuss economics with someone who has no idea about it?  That's silly and doesn't make any sense.  I haven't worked for someone else since 2003 (or 02, I can't remember now).  Even before that I had my own consulting company on the side.  You have no idea what that's like, so what could someone like you possibly tell someone like me?  You are much better suited in your current role for people like myself to laugh at.

I'm sure you understand a lot about economics, but your views on it just don't make sense to those of us who actually partake in it.

I don't care who you voted for, never asked. My only point was voting for the individual and party should never be an obstacle.

Still waiting for you to address this crap.

"There is an argument to be made for income inequality".

So lets hear it. What's your argument?

Picture this. We're spiraling to earth in a plane without a tail, you and I are trying our damnedest to keep the plane level and do our best to slow it down, while numbnuts wants to discuss the minutiae of gravity and the effects of velocity vs friction.

The damn plane is on a crash course for earth, and he's still stuck on the effect of inconsequential nonsense.

Once again, do you actually read what I write?  where is there anything about voting in what you responded to?

If you think you can get a rise out of me with those sorts of childish taunts you severely underestimate me.

If you were actually following the threads in Financial, you'd know that wasn't actually addressed to you. Shit happens when the server is lagging like it did this morning..

Shock, and this is the only one that with a small indefinite quantity of interest.

We're spiraling trying to pull up while he's in coach bitching about the turbulence isn't fair...

:lol:
Besides being a stowaway and complaining about the decor and how seat dispersion needs to be greatly improved upon.
Minutiae, always about the inconsequential shit and completely missing the big picture, that we're heading for certain demise, because no matter how hard one tries, you can't make fuel out of existing fuel.

Point being, he thinks the govt can simply create value by printing money, though he refuses to admit that's his ARGUMENT, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HE'S DOING.

No that's not what I'm doing and the reason you believe that is because you don't actually understand what I've been saying.

Assuming that you value the experience of attending the Superbowl more than the cost to acquire the tickets to attend and the only way to attend is to acquire the tickets, question is, do Superbowl tickets have value despite the fact they are made of worthless paper?

If no, explain.

(See what I'm doing here is trying to have an adult conversation)

I know exactly what you're doing. That's why I'm giving you such a hard time.
Picture a huge circle and your point being the center of said circle. My point is all the points supporting said circle are completely made up of Unicorn farts and pixie dust.
The system you claim to understand is not a working system when at any moment your worthless paper is deemed utterly useless.
See Zimbabwe Somalia.

As long as each ticket get you into the game, there is a value. What would the value be if there were 500,000 tickets printed but only 50,000 seats?
