:argue: Im starting to sense some sexual tension between Doug and TB.
I guess this is a bit of a anything goes thread?
Well this can always be deleted if its out of place.
Condenser/Cooling Tower/Head Pressure control test in 20 mins. Wish me luck!
I think HVAC guys are some of the smartest folks around, and I am happy to be one of them. Our trade requires a synergy and a versatility that is rarely seen elsewhere.
We were promised "the most open and transparent new administration and congress in history," when in fact, ALL of the legislative machinations that our new president promised we would see on CSPAN (in the US, the Cable Satellite Public Affairs Network) have instead been held behind closed doors in committees, with the minority party and the cameras shut OUT.
Unfortunately for my cousins in BC, and for you and my other Canadian friends, your economy is tied to ours, and right now, we have cabinet heads and elected leaders that neither understand nor value the form of economic system that has allowed us all to prosper.
TB.....try 449 and 'what the bleep do we know'.......ask Bret...
Ok. Let's talk for a moment about "what we know."
We know that whenever something is taxed, you get less of that thing. If you tax investors, you get less investment. If you tax bonuses, there is less money for the intended recipient to spend on consumer goods, housing, or investments that fund job creation.
We know that socialism has failed, wherever and whenever it has been tried. We also know the the traditional American approach to economics has brought untold wealth to the world. The foreign aid that flows out of the US is second to none in the generosity of amount and the diversity of recipient countries.
We know that if you give a man a fish and fail to require that he learns to fish for himself, he must come back to you tomorrow for another fish. If you can keep the fish-giving approach going, the man will have to re-elect you to office every time, and the man will eventually feel personally justified that he is entitled to a free fish everyday. This is what the US's "war on poverty" has brought us: more poor people than ever before, and a defective culture of entitlement that produces nothing but discontent.
We also know that when the US reduced the marginal tax rate, more money than ever before flowed into the Treasury, because the "pie" became larger and more jobs were created by private industry. We know that if the government were to suddenly declare that we had made too much money, we would scream loudly. Why then would we not scream just as loudly when this happens to someone else? The answer is that the media has fomented a hatred of class envy, when in reality we should all be striving to be our best, and not be so concerned with what other people have. The Bible calls that "covetousness."
We know that Life is by nature "unfair," and we know that all attempts to make life fair have and will fail miserably. This is why socialism always fails, yet succeeds at robbing us of our freedom and liberty. We know that our Founders greatest desire was for us to remain a free and sovereign nation, and we know that our freedom is being deconstructed as I type this on my Blackberry by a group of legislators whose greatest glory is their own self-aggrandizement and whose singular lust is power over millions.
That's a lot to know, Doug, and yet still allow these things to go on.
Is it OK if one man has 100,000 tons of fish and then says to the starving guy...no you need to 'learn how to fish'.....you tell me.....
How 'bout we look at Tiger....how's that 'right to accrue and build the exponential of the 9th degree of what he needs' working out for him? Books, bibles, charter of rights in Canada, constitution in USA....it's all BS.....the laws of human nature/fairness/right/wrong will ALWAYS prevail eventually.
In the meantime 'attraction by example rather than promotion' will not only help you live happier....it will help change the world in smaller degrees ..... the crooked dumb a$$ed politicians will still be what they will be.....
449 and what the bleep to we know....
