New Global Plan Would Crack Down On Corporate Tax Avoidance

udachny Re:Most taxes are legalized theft (324 comments)

A child is going to have parents and if a child has no parents then there are relatives, friends and finally private charities that can take care of orphans.

The only 'veritable idiot' here is you, somebody who still does not understand what reality is.

Most certainly nobody at all under any circumstances, regardless of what is happening in the least should ever be compelled under the barrel of a gun to pay for anybody's life, including lives of any number of children.

A child is a responsibility of his or her parents and if they cannot deal with it, other people step in, but nobody should be forced to.

Ontario Government Wants To Regulate the Internet

udachny Re:Government doesn't get it. (184 comments)

A gang sweeping through the jungle with machetes to eliminate the Tutsis does not violate human rights of the Tutsis, it just murders them, but there is no human right violation there, only murder.

Human right violation is a violation of the right of an individual to exist without being harassed by supposedly 'legal' powers that authorities hold. If the gang was an arm of a government, then it would be violating human rights of Tutsis while murdering them.

When Scientists Give Up

udachny Re:Welcome to government science (348 comments)

Gold standard does not prevent the economy from growing, the biggest economic growth happened in the USA under not only 'standard' but actually on the gold dollar.

The economy did not grow since 1971, the economy shrunk since then. The economy actually collapsed, you are just not aware of it yet, because you don't have eyes, you are listening to propaganda, which tells you nonsense about the fake GDP, fake CPI, fake employment, fake dollar, everything at this point in USA is fake. There is no economy, economy produces stuff, USA consumes on borrowed money and time, consumes stuff that others produced without paying for it, thus the 500Billion USD/year trade deficit.

When Scientists Give Up

udachny Re:Welcome to government science (348 comments)

By the way, 40 years ago Nixon has defaulted on the promise of paying gold for US dollars and took the world off the gold standard. The inflation shot through the roof (money printing) and USA went into economic stagflation - high level of inflation combined with recession.

Over the course of 40 years the USA government has obliterated the economy of the country completely with inflation and growth predicated on inflation and borrowing and taxing. Companies simply ran away from the madness and now there is no more money for anything, only funny money, which will not buy you anything, including research.

Ontario Government Wants To Regulate the Internet

udachny Re:Government doesn't get it. (184 comments)

The only one that is 'fucking stupid' (in your own words) is you here. Human rights do not stop under any circumstances. Human right is a right not to be murdered by government, it's a right not to have your property stolen by the government, it's a right not to be abused, imprisoned by the government.

Human right is a protection against government abuse, which is why it is a HUMAN right. A government (a collective) denying human rights has absolutely nothing to do with 'fist near my nose' routine.

My human rights are NOT violated because I cannot legally punch you in the nose, however my human rights are violated when the government comes out with a rule that some people are entitled to GET SOMETHING FROM ME AGAINST MY WILL.

Ontario Government Wants To Regulate the Internet

udachny Re:Government doesn't get it. (184 comments)

Of-course the above comment will be downmoded to negative territory to prevent it from being read. Now, it is up to people to decide on their own whether a human right of one person can be predicated on violation of human right of another person.

A human right is a protection against government intrusion and theft of property first and foremost and this particular human right is violated when an employer is forced, under the barrel of a government gun, to accept that he cannot offer a position in his business to another human being if he does not comply with a number of rules that are supposedly there to prevent so called 'human right violations' by the said employer against the said potential hire.

Of-course in order to provide this so called 'human right' of non-discrimination, the employer's human rights have to be violated first of all. His property ceases to be his own, his property at this point is taken over by government in a violent manner in order to provide an entitlement to a potential employee.

Can a true human right be achieve through violation of a human right of another? I say it cannot, government on the other hand uses this false logic to hold on to power, since vast majority of people will vote to abuse government power to destroy human rights of employers in order to gain from it. Vast majority of employees will vote to increase power of the government that promises them something for nothing, since there is no such thing as 'something for nothing', the 'something' will be achieved at the expense of human rights of the minority, in this case the employers.

How Scientific Consensus Has Gotten a Bad Reputation

udachny Re:Worse than that... (770 comments)

I use 2 accounts, (should be obvious since I state it in the signature and in many comments I explicitly add it to the top of the comment) for the last few years or so, given the fact that my first account constantly gets bombarded with downmods that prevent me from posting. The only reason to be against my second account is if you personally want to prevent me from posting comments.

Now, does it matter to you specifically what account I use? There are hundreds of people here with many accounts and they keep it secret. I want to link all of my comments together, so I very specifically state the reason for my backup account.

Secondly, when you say

I'm not going to watch someone bloviate in a Youtube video, thanks.

you state your bias against information in a thread, where you stated this:

"Rejects empirical data" is another way of saying "taking it on faith", i.e. the Austrian school is a religion by another name.

.

You are the one who holds religious believes in this case, your religious believes deny empirical data, which shows that Austrian school of economics allows people to make very precise predictions, not only predicting economic phenomena but showing how they come to those conclusions step by step.

Keynesian ideas are religious propaganda that is currently used by the powers that be to control population.

udachny Re:Worse than that... (770 comments)

Wrong on both points, I am not an American and on Keynesianism, where every failure of the Keynesian ideology is countered by the argument that their approached wasn't used in large enough quantity.

By the way, same with the youtube videos that I am linking to, which include 10 minutes of news program clip compilation of an Austrian being laughed at repeatedly for predicting the housing bubble collapse and the economic collapse much before most people saw it and his mortgage banker meeting video from 2006 (the same one he gave in 2005) explaining why exactly (point by point) the housing bubble was inflated and how it will collapse.

Cheers to you.

Ontario Government Wants To Regulate the Internet

udachny Re:Government doesn't get it. (184 comments)

Well, Canada has shown time and again that Constitution doesn't matter at all anyway.

Would you agree that a human right cannot be a right if it trumps some other human right? As in: there is no way that something can be called a human right if in order to achieve that goal, another human's right must be violated?

Well, Canadian courts violate human rights on daily basis as they pretend they uphold human rights. How is that possible? It's called Canadian Human Rights Act of 1985 and based on this so called "Human Right Commissions" have been established, for example Ontario Human Right Commission.

With names like that, you would expect these high powered authorities to actually care about what it is they are supposedly presiding over, however the reality is the opposite. The so called "human right" courts in Canada violate actual human rights of minorities on daily basis in order to provide vast majority with many many entitlements at the expense of the minority.

I am of-course speaking of the employers being completely violated in Canada in order to ensure that those in power stay in power by supporting this absolute atrocity of a human right violation. The employees are far and many, the employers are few, and so it pays to violate human rights of employers in order to provide undue entitlements to employees and gain political power.

Based on the false premise and the so called 'common law' no employee in Canada has been forced to pay a retribution to an employer if the employee decides to leave at a moment's notice, however all employers are forced to pay retribution to employees if they want to fire them. This is not the human right violation yet, however once you realize that employers are not allowed to so called 'discriminate' based on age, race, religion, language an actually experience but employees discriminate on daily basis and that courts find that employers are liable but not one court will find an employee liable, you will see the problem.

Of-course there are much greater problems than that, but basically the so called 'human rights' courts in Canada are some of the most egregious examples of human right violators in that country.

Ha ha, "5 insightful"? Actually the real religion is Keynesianism, regardless of how many pieces of data they get to the contrary of their believes, the normal response it: do the same thing BIGGER next time. Of-course they do and they do it bigger every time and the only thing that happens from it is that the misallocations and bubbles are getting bigger.

Actual Austrian economics has plenty of data and history of accurate predictions.

Protesters Blockade Microsoft's Seattle Headquarters Over Tax Breaks

udachny Re:actually it is quite clear, but who RTFAs? (246 comments)

Once again, SCOTUS does not change the facts. Whether legislation is Constitutional or not, SCOTUS can pass their opinion, however their opinion does not actually change whether the law is Constitutional or not.

A Constitutional law is Constitutional and unconstitutional is unconstitutional regardless what SCOTUS finds. Even before a law is found unconstitutional by SCOTUS it is already unconstitutional. Even after SCOTUS finds an unconstitutional law Constitutional, it does not change the fact that the law is unconstitutional.

That's not "another poster", that's my primary account. As I explain in that comment, 16th amendment does not turn illegal income taxes into legal ones, it does many things, but not that. Plenty of what I wanted to say on that topic is covered in that comment, which is why I refer to it rather than copying and pasting, you can click links, right? If you do not care to read what I wrote back then, then why would I want to rewrite it now?

Silicon Valley Fights Order To Pay Bigger Settlement In Tech Talent Hiring Case

udachny Re:good plan (200 comments)

Oh, I do know for a fact, much better than everybody here, that the Supreme Court's opinions do not in fact change Constitutionality of legislation. They pass opinions however their opinions do not change the illegality of laws and do not make them legal.

Also a law doesn't need to be heard by the SCOTUS to be understood as an unconstitutional one. An unconstitutional law is unconstitutional before SCOTUS hears and and after, regardless of what SCOTUS finds.

Protesters Blockade Microsoft's Seattle Headquarters Over Tax Breaks

udachny Re:Misleading Headline (246 comments)

Nobody should be paying any income related taxes, they are morally repugnant because they assume that all individuals are owned by the collective, as if people are slaves rather than free individuas and unconstitutional.

Protesters Blockade Microsoft's Seattle Headquarters Over Tax Breaks

udachny actually it is quite clear, but who RTFAs? (246 comments)

Itâ(TM)s not clear why the workers didnâ(TM)t protest at Microsoft headquarters."

- this is not the question, and really, the answer is in TFA:

But Jeff Reifman, a technology consultant and writer who used to work for Microsoft, is pointing the finger at his former employer, saying that Microsoft has used a subsidiary in Nevada to avoid paying Washington taxes. Heâ(TM)s written numerous articles about this over the years, and now published a recent commentary on Crosscut.com linking Microsoftâ(TM)s tax policy with the stateâ(TM)s school funding shortfall

There you go, that's why they are in Nevada.

By the way, this is again compared to Burger King for all the wrong reasons:

In response, Hunter said that he and many other legislators tried for years to figure out whether they could tax the money Microsoft sends to Nevada. He said the answer from the stateâ(TM)s lawyers was always, âoeNo.â And he said itâ(TM)s similar to the recent move by Burger King to buy a Canadian company as a way to lower its U.S. tax bill.

âoeTo move that big chunk of revenue to Nevada â" itâ(TM)s legal,â Hunter said. âoeSo this is just like the Burger King thing. Itâ(TM)s frustrating, and youâ(TM)ve got lots of people in Congress who are frustrated about it, but itâ(TM)s legal.â

Burger King is a BRAZILIAN COMPANY, not American. Hasn't been American since about 1989. 70% of its stock is held by a Brazilian conglomerate. Fucking Americans are idiots, crying about a Brazilian company merging with a Canadian one, but what else is new?

However the point is that Microsoft is a victim of unconstitutional, illegal government system that usurped power and is stealing people's money. Income taxes are illegal and are collected illegally for a wide range of reasons.

Of-course the reality is that so are these government monopolies on education and health insurance and care. There should be no government at all in any of it, education and health insurance and care are just as much subject to free market rules as any other products, including food and shelter and clothing and energy and none of is any of government's business and the fact that government is in all of these things is the reason that these socialist / fascist economies are dying and good, the sooner the better. The sooner these socialist/fascist states disappear the sooner people can rebuild their individual freedoms and real economies.

Silicon Valley Fights Order To Pay Bigger Settlement In Tech Talent Hiring Case

udachny Re:good plan (200 comments)

Yes, the current economic collapse in USA can be traced all the way down to the first anti-trust act against Standard Oil. That massive breach of legality, enormous unconstitutional, illegal seizure of private property and destruction of the very principles that America was founded upon, that was the starting point for the demise of the most powerful economic engine of 19th century.

None of this is even close to be legal (Constitutional). Government has no authority to prevent private individuals or business owners from coming to mutual agreements of any kind, including this.

These laws are destroying USA, when the country's economy is obliterated none of these laws will mean anything at all because there will be nobody to apply them to.

on the logical fallacies (evolution, free market, morality of gov't, business, etc.)

on European recession and the fact that it takes the aim off the US problems, which are much greater

on IPO regulations, that prevent public investors from gaining anything without a huge gamble from early stages of company formation, while denying companies an access to public investment funds at the time, they need it most. Also on kickstarter as a temporary market solution.

on investments, the final solution.

on elections, Obama's coming win due to Romney's and Ryan's commitment to out-Democrat the Democrats and 'save' Medicare and SS.

on Indian space program and the threat of gov't violence to achieve it (of-course similar to what USSR and USA and China were doing in terms of financing such grand schemes)
