I'm sure you look positively Errol Flynn-esque in green tights, Salyavin. But 
the thought of Nabby or any other TM Purusha type wearing green tights makes me 
want to wash my brain. :-)

 Yes, I see what you mean, asanas and sipping hot water are no substitute for 
decent exercise. It's just as well the TMO can cause positive social change 
with their minds
 

 Good choice of picture again, I wonder just how camp it's possible to make a 
macho dude?

What exactly, are you doing thinking about men in tights, or anybody's 
under pants, tight or loose, or green or gold? :-)

In general, I'm opposed to taxation on income and property, but I'd 
consider supporting a consumption tax. But, a flat taxes offer 
simplicity in the tax code, which has been reported to increase 
compliance and decrease administration costs. A true flat rate tax is a 
system of taxation where one tax rate is applied to all income with no 
exceptions. Go figure.

According to what I've read, the flat rate would be applied to all 
taxable income and profits without exception or exemption. It could be 
argued that under such an arrangement, no one is subject to a 
preferential or unfair tax treatment. No industry receives special 
treatment, large households are not advantaged at the expense of small 
ones, etc.

Moreover, the cost of tax filing for citizens and the cost of tax 
administration for the government would be further reduced, as under a 
true flat tax only businesses and the self-employed would need to 
interact with the tax authorities. That's what I think.

A flat tax is nothing for the rich to pay but disastrous for the poor.  
I'm for a progressive tax like there was during the Eisenhower era.  It 
discouraged money hoarding.  The investment transaction tax is also a 
good idea. Stop sucking up to the money hoarders, Willy.  You keep 
saying the rent is too damn high.  Go figure.

It is too complex.  It's been gamed by the rich and the corporations so 
they can get off paying less and make us peons pay more.  Not fair or 
democratic at all. Billionairism is a disease.
