    Smile Comparative Advantage

    Of course if you were half smart, you would outsource all your bureaucracy to Australia and reap the benefits of comparative advantage.

    They say comparisons are odious but comparisons make possible advantage.

    So first we need to understand our comparative histories to see where comparative advantage might lie.

    We do have a free trade agreement between us so it behoves us to make the best of it.

    i think your friends would be horrified at your entry-level bragging and your implication that they would compromise their integrity in order to help you settle a lame internet spat.

    pro tip: politics is a ruthless game and naive, indiscreet pups can quickly find themselves in a hot mess.

    My government can kick your government's ass. The plot thickens.

    Tired of talking about it.

    My final point is this.

    I personally love the latitude that my gov't allows me, in being able to determine what is best for me and my needs. It belies a trust of the gov't in it's people that I think is absent most other places in the world.

    It raises my hackels any time the gov't surplants my decision making process with its own on the grounds that it knows whats best for me to a greater extent than I do.

    This issue is deeply personal for me, and I don't take kindly to the styles of argument that have been employed against me.

    I may have reacted harshly, but we play with the toys God gives us.

    If you think I'm dumb enough to mention any of this somewhere where it could come back to bite me, then the mistake is yours.

    I'm more savvy than you give me credit for my dear girl.

    I wouldn't have made it "this" far if speed bumps like that were tripping me up.

    i would like to point out that guns are banned in chicago. you know who has guns gang members and criminals. so yeah banning guns won't keep them out of hands of criminals. also criminals usually do not want registered guns as it can be traced back to them. spray paint's also banned, but we still have grafitti, people go to indiana and buy spray paint than sell it to others in the city on the black market.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    If laws mean nothing and have no impact, why have them at all?
