  •  Ah, you got me (0+ / 0-)

    I tell ya', you "critical thinkers" show off your ability at every turn. Apparently this bank of non-citizens was so impressed with Frenchy's contract, that they deemed it important enough to put into their own "dogma". Now, just point me to the section in the Declaration or Constitution where they declare that profits are to be shared or that social services are to be provided for the general welfare.

    •  How about starting with the preamble: (4+ / 0-)

      We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

      Or maybe Article 1, Section 2 would be more to your liking:

      Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several states

      Or how about Article 1, Section 7:

      All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills.

      or Article 1, Section 8:

      The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare

      Oh, wait, you haven't actually read the constitution, have you? Or any of the letters and speeches of those who participated in the constitutional convention? 'Cuz if you had, you wouldn't have bothered with that last comment. Then again, you wouldn't be here trolling, either.

      BTW - being able to think critically insulates you from manipulation by those who might want to use the human penchant for greed to get you to work against your own best interests. You might want to try it sometime.

      Beware the everyday brutality of the averted gaze.

    •  Ar tu esi durnas? (0+ / 0-)

      Translation from a non French language:
      My, aren't we ineffably stupid?

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
