Why the IRS Should Automatically Fill In Returns With What It Knows

AnonymousCactus Re:people are lazy (613 comments)

I have no problem with people paying more if they are lazy.

I'm also pragmatic - most people are probably too lazy to truly review the the information sent to them anyway.

Do you double-check your W2's against your pay stubs? Most people don't.

It might end up being more fair, if the government does it, they might end up being responsible for ensuring you don't get totally screwed. Right now, you're the only one responsible for that.

Do the Blind Deserve More Effort on the Web?

AnonymousCactus Stupid Analogy (663 comments)

The web is necessary for success in today's world. Saying that legislating accessibility is like banning sugar in foods is ridiculous. They'd only be remotely comparable if your job, life, taxes, social connections, economic viability and pretty much everything else was influenced by whether or not you could have a sugary food.

What I've yet to comprehend is the hostility that the general population seem to show disabled people. Yeah, it's scary to imagine living life differently than you do now, but that doesn't mean you have to be hostile in your exclusion of people with disabilities.
