    Like this woman? Cheryl Rios, CEO who said females shouldn't be president, defends Facebook post - TODAY.com I personally think she's doing it as a marketing stunt, I mean she is the CEO of a marketing firm. I bet if you asked her if a woman should be submissive to her husband 100% all the time and if it is possible for a husband to rape his wife, you'd hear her true feelings.

    I can understand some religious women feeling as though they need to be passive and domesticated based on their strict religious teachings. But then again, that's the one thing that I loathe about religion in general, it tends to stifle the natural progression of things. Instead of religion allowing humanity to grow as it may, it twists and perverts humanity. Take something as natural and pure as the human form, we are taught to be shameful of it, condemn it, and censor it. Any entity that teaches us that our own likeness in its most pure and natural form is some sort of perversion, that's a perverse entity as far as I'm concerned.
    Yeah I once worked with a young 19 year old who had to read a Christian book on sex in order to be comfortable even having relations with her own newly married husband. That was just insane to me.

    He's a self described socialist. The problem with socialism is eventually you run out if other people's money.

    “In countries in Scandinavia like Denmark, Norway, Sweden, they are very democratic countries,” Sanders said. “Voter turnout is a lot higher than it is in the United States. In those countries, health care is the right of all people; college education and graduate school is free; retirement benefits, child care are stronger than the United States of America. In those countries by and large government works for ordinary people and the middle class, rather than, as is the case right now in our country, for the billionaire class.”
    All that "free" stuff isn't free. It's paid for by others through government force. It drives out business, ruins work ethic, and stifles economic growth. When was the last time you heard of any major commercial/production developments coming out if Scandinavian countries? I have no doubt voter turnout is higher. People are more likely to vote when government is promising to take more from others to give to them through no effort on their part.

    Sure, because it's not like the U.S. owes trillions of dollars to COMMUNIST China....

    Since the 1980s, China's Communist Party has been using "socialist market economy" to describe their nation's economic system. China's economy is subject to market forces, and capitalists are involved, but the Party does not believe that capitalists run their economy.

    Oh, god. That is socialist to you? Lol. I think that is an awesome idea. Everywhere but America, higher learning is easier to obtain, healthcare is for everyone and people are more political minded. That is far from socialism.

    I disagree with the majority of the man's policies on a fundamental level, but I can sure respect what he is trying to do. If the Democratic Party wants to earn my respect as an organization worthy of existence, they will nominate him or someone equivalent instead of Hillary. At least Burnie stands for something.

    I don't care who we owe the money to, the fact that we continue deficit spending and going deeper into debt is a huge problem all its own.

    If we are talking about debt, we need to curb credit card and student debt. Both are worth billions.

    Other than the remainder of a car loan, I'm now debt free. It's not easy to break the cycle, but putting a plan in motion and sticking to it works wonders. Our government could do with a lesson in living within their means.

    That's why the Bush Tax cuts were a big mistake. The wealthiest have the most to gain by the U.S. infrastructure, why they don't want to pay their share is beyond me. And no, inflating their salaries to insane amounts while having their tax rates cut does not count as them paying their fair share. Why not just give the poorest people the greatest salaries and then ask them to pay 90% of their salaries in taxes? I'm sure they would have NO problem with that.

    I've got what some consider radical views on taxes, and it's been a while since I've drug out those points. I've got a few more since, so don't tempt me.


    That aside, the problem with government and the general public on all sides is that they think all they have to do is raise their own credit limit and take out more loans. Anyone that's dealt with credit card or personal loans knows those of us that are actually held accountable to those loans can't just simply do that and expect to get away with it.

    Yes, we know a "flat tax", which sounds good until you figure that a poor person paying the same amount in taxes as a rich person for purchases, is a regressive tax. Look at Mitt Romney's defense of his 14% back in 2012. That's less than most middle class pay. And yet he doesn't do any type of measurable work.

    If you can have less government but better enforcement of current regulations, then I'm all for it. I'm convinced everyone that's wanting less government and regulations want it because then they can cut corners. Look at vaccines and our lack of regulators enforcing current laws. https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...ent+corruption I won't post specific links since I'm guessing many sources are going to be considered "liberal rag tags". I know that our bureaucracy can be tiresome and ineffective at time, but when you see things like the Ice Cream Listeria outbreak, the BP oil spill, and other instances of companies behaving badly, lessening restrictions isn't the answer either.

    You're mixing up a flat tax with the Fair Tax. The flat tax is the same thing we tried that has lead to what we have today. The Fair Tax taxes consumption. Plus the Fair Tax is progressive. To call that specific plan regressive is just factually wrong. For one, remember the current system already has 22% embedded taxes built into the price of everything. So in that respect, the poor are already paying a greater share for taxes when compared to income. Keep this in mind as you read on.

    Now there's the prebate system that untaxed the poor and makes it more progressive with greater spending. If you spend right at the poverty level on only new goods and services, you'd pay zero taxes. At double your poverty level, your effective rate would be 11.5%, so the cost of living is still lower than now. When I ran the numbers myself, a family of 4 would have to spend about $450,000/year on new goods and services before they break even on the cost of living. Meaning at that level of spending, their effective tax rate after the prebate would put them back at the 22% embedded tax mark I mentioned earlier. This is also not counting that used goods would be tax exempt.

    But anytime opponents see "sales tax," they ignore everything else about the plan that proves their regressive claim as false. :rolleyes:

    Yes. It's pretty sad that someone who ran a tech company proves she knows nothing about tech. But then she really doesn't know much about anything else either. I worked with a woman like this once and it was a disaster. If you can't even get the basics right, how can you run a country and it's military?

    Under her direction, I remember hearing that they were thinking of restructuring the company and focusing only on printers. I guess maybe that'll get the tea-baggers to back her, "Maybe she'll do to the government what she almost did to HP" (similar to what GWB accomplished).

    Cheryl Rios doesn't go into much detail on why she thinks a woman should not be president. She makes a vague reference to hormones, but she also admits that women are capable of being doctors or lawyers without any issues.

    So, what makes the office of the presidency so different, especially in the United States? Other countries have elected women as their leaders, and we don't see them falling into ruin.

    I personally think she was just trying to get some publicity. I mean she works for a marketing firm. If I did business with this firm, I'd have to re-consider since it seems like the person heading up this firm is sending out the wrong message.
