U.S. Supreme Court Upholds Religious Objections To Contraception

dlt074 Re:Can an "atheist company" refuse too? (1330 comments)

Here is a great place to go to find a charity that best fits your needs.

The solution to your problems and wrongs is not to take it out on others or to create even bigger more inefficient uncaring government programs. government programs do not help, they enslave. they trap its users in the machine.

PS. nice try, but alas just more progressive class/race/gender warfare designed to divide and empower bigger government.

Blue Shield Leaks 18,000 Doctors' Social Security Numbers

dlt074 Re:Good news though (74 comments)

Err, no. there is NO place to fill out SS on a 1099 ayment. That is precisely where you have and use your TIN (Tax Identification Number), You only give your SS on your Personal tax forms at EOY in that situation. No, there is no valid reason a Physician should be giving out his personal SS for a business transaction, especially if it is a 1099 and NOT a W2 type form. Taxes are NOT taken out of 1099æ.you are responsible for that on your own at EOY.

when receiving 1099 income, the issuer of the pay, is supposed to report that income to the IRS. how are they supposed to report it without a SSN or TIN? which is why people who get paid via 1099 usually have to fill out a W-9. which does take a SSN or TIN. your choice. the IRS will default people to a sole proprietor status when they do not incorporate. it is perfectly legit to use your SSN for business purposes. remember the tax system is set up so that there is no right answer 100% of the time. this is to ensure they can always stick it to you when they need to and that nobody ever really knows what's going on and lives in constant fear of being caught.

"3. You are too honest to invent a church just to cheat someone out of health care"

people not wanting to pay for someone else's health care is != to "just to cheat someone out of health care". when did it become acceptable to enslave people to the needs of others? i don't want to be beholden to your needs. i'm a free man and would like to just be left alone to live my life to the best of my ability. if you need help, ask nicely for it. stop using force to extract it from me at gun point. no matter how you spin it, you are forcing me to take care of your needs.

grow up and take care of yourself.

The Ethics Cloud Over Ballmer's $2 Billion B-Ball Buy

dlt074 Re:So what's the problem here? (398 comments)

there is nothing wrong or illegal about avoiding taxes. free people are not beholden to pay everything to the government. we are not required to go out of our way to pay more taxes. we can do far better with our money then any government agency can.

"if we keep allowing deniers to have a say in policy."

that's what it's all about right there. CONTROL. can't very well let people who disagree to have any say in policy. that would be nuts. we know what's best for everyone. we will make the hard decisions for the greater good. you stupid people get out of our way. we know best.

nothing worse then a bunch of people who know they are smarter then everyone else.

UN to Debate Use of Fully Autonomous Weapons, New Report Released

dlt074 how much is a life worth? (180 comments)

"It would be great to get the US to give up making land mines, but unfortunately China and Russia would almost certainly ramp up production to fill any shortfall. That's not a good enough reason for us to keep doing it"

how about, we keep making/using them because they work? they are a very effective, low cost solution that saves the lives of those using them.

i love land mines. much better then throwing soldiers at the problem.

Talking To the Public: the Biggest Enemy To Reducing Greenhouse Emissions

dlt074 Re:Hairy Reed - Gas Producer (324 comments)

well, when deniers talk the science, the believers go into "burn the heretics at the stake" mode. it's hard to have an honest debate with people who have drank the kool-aid. so, when dealing with cults/religions i think it's valid to point out the hypocrisy of the cults leaders. it's also important to show why they want you to believe what they're selling. it's probably not for the greater good, it's most likely to gain more control and power.

it's always about control and power.

this heretic is ready, mod me down.

How 'Fast Lanes' Will Change the Internet

dlt074 Re:Finally (192 comments)

"So now the government is talking about regulating peering. I feared this would happen once someone woke up to how the Internet actually works. I really don't see how any good can come of this."

it's the government, "good" has nothing to do with it. they want control and power. regulate, is what they do. control is what they want. outcome is not important to them. repeat.

Identity Dominance: the US Military's Biometric War In Afghanistan

dlt074 one saving grace (83 comments)

getting the info off the devices and back to the DOD does not always happen. i know of numerous times an entire missions worth of data was never uploaded to a computer and/or never sent any further up the chain. it may be collected, but it's not all getting where they want it.

and from what I saw in two tours, the data that does make it up never amounts to anything actionable. a waste of money and resources right now.

i think you're right. it is a good place to beta test and will be much more useful here at home, where people are much easier to identify and track.

Detroit: America's Next Tech Boomtown

dlt074 Re:Nothing new - Always had tech jobs (336 comments)

which would of been picked up by the next, possibly innovative, auto company to come along an buy up all the union heavy, bloated, bureaucratic, bankrupt companies assets at rock bottom prices. there is/was no need to bail the industry out. people like/want cars. somebody will always be around to make them and people move were the jobs are. you don't stop being valuable or employable because the company you work for goes out of business. it's called a free market. which we haven't had for some time.

as for moving to Detroit, no thank you. too many union types lurking around up there.

Retired SCOTUS Justice Wants To 'Fix' the Second Amendment

dlt074 Re:Militia, then vs now (1633 comments)

you sure can.

the branch dividians purposely didn't pay the tax on their weapons in order to instigate a standoff with the Feds. if you pay the proper tax, you can legally own any of the weapons they were killed over.

the FBI/ATF did not have to step in and stop it anymore then they have to enforce any other failure to pay taxes.

the Man wanted blood and the dividians gave them an excuse. just remember, all those people died because they didn't pay the tax. money == freedom and in this case life.
