    State didn't give me my License I earned it. I know what the F I'm doing too.
    Congratulations!
    you win the Normal Award.



    so whats going to happen when American business changes so the price that is agreed upon ends with haggling or bargaining instead of payment?

    let's face the facts, the system doesn't work over there.
    that kind of system needs an oppressive government.

    you're right.
    it's the Hindus too.

    As far as our business go we as an Industry need to get togather all our country and in an organized way need to make sure no one is able to contract any work with out License. (ACCA isn't working or may be don't want to get in to it) I don't see any doctor or lawyer able to work with out proper education or Licensing.
    let's face the facts, the system doesn't work over there.

    I don't care. as long as they don't harm my family,I or my fellow country men they can stay or live how they want to.
    you're right.

    Just start with double the actual price and then give them some discount :-)

    All organized religion must be abolished and replaced with the institution of free thought and spiritualism (not religion!). We need to remove what divides us and enforce what unites us....such as science, medicine, foodz, fine arts and sports.

    Organized religion, bankers, and the liberal disease will be the herald of our doom!

    You might run into a little snafu with the 1st amendment.

    Sounds like socialism

    Not necessarily...we can still have a capitalist-constitutional republic without religion.

    I am very concerned about you coolwhip. I sounds like you have caught the liberal disease. Not to worry, I have the perfect cure.

    This comes straight from the tea bagger Rand Paul, he is a doctor you know. You need to immediately go find some weed. Then you need to do a few bong hits. After you feel you have done sufficient bong hits you need to go to the nearest river/stream, kneel down in the water, and pray to the Aqua Buhhda. When you wake up the next morning you will be cured, that is if you did not drown.

    Good luck, I am rooting for you.

    You should be concerned for the lack of synapses in your brain...if you have one.

    You expressed a lot of liberal ideaology in your post above. The most stricking is "free thought" This is good too. "We need to remove what divides us and enforce what unites us....such as science, medicine, foodz, fine arts and sports". That sounds like liberal clap-trap to me.

    Your right, I don't have a brain. I proved it today by posting on ARP.

    Free thought in that you think for yourself and not be told what to think by a religious institution. The very institution that creates a bias in every young mind they can get ahold of and warp with the greatest lie perpetrated on mankind in human history.

    Listen to this guy!...

    I wont work for any more muslims if i can keep from it.

    Way to many bad experiences, on one job they didnt have to pay taxes.
    Customer calculated backwards what his tax break was and told me how much i paid for the equipment. And he was right.

    Do not tell me they do not get government breaks skyboy, thats a outright lie and you know it. To bad your second generation so you cant cash in on it.

    They do not pay, they run their equipment and stores into the ground.

    I have ONE Muslim customer who actually warns me away from other arabs, even he kows how they are.

    I was at his store one time and another arab asked me to call him about work, the guy leaves and i look at my customer.
    He says no way, he will cheat you and try and beat you down on price.

    Ive seen them almost come to blows trying to rip each other off.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Never list taxes on a bid job, unless both labor & material are taxed. Here resi stuff is tax exempt on labor. So, it figures to apply taxes on the minimum of materials for the bill, which is basically cost (and we might forget a few misc. items).

    Material X Tax rate = Tax Amount. So, Tax Amount / tax rate = Material.

    I just show a total, they ask and I will not tell them. I just say that the price is taxes included and that is all they will get out of me. On my copy, I do fill in the amount for my own records.

    My Arab buddy also says Arabs are cheap. I know him very well and can also say that he is also cheap. Great guy, sometimes/often uncommonly generous outside of business situations, but in most business situations he is cheap and I mean really really really cheap.

    But still, it is because he is Arab. Not due to whether he is muslim or not. [He is sort of a non-practicing muslim best I can describe it]
