I Have An Offer For America's High-Rollers

If you can't endure the suffering of a modest tax increase, I'll be more than happy to trade places with you and accept the challenge of making seven figures. If I made $50M per year, they could even tax me at a 94% rate like during FDR and I could care less.

Should it be against the law for news networks to lie?

For anyone old enough to remember, how did Reagan do as CA governor and as president?

I want to get some comments here and know more about this GOP legend. From all that I heard about him so far with regards to his "welfare queen" myth and his trickle-down myth, he sounded like a scumbag and a con-man.

Is it me or did it seem like Obama's landslide among Asian voters was underreported?

I don't intend to start a hubbub here, but I noticed that whenever the MSM discussed Obama's leads with various groups and minorities, I hardly ever heard about his polling with Asians. They always mention Blacks, Latinos, women, and young people, but not so much Asians. And Obama's win among them was actually slightly greater than his win among Latinos (I think it was 73% compared to 71%).
Are they just not focusing on them so much because there aren't that many Asians who are registered to vote?

On Jerry Springer why do they give the guests water?

Particularly when they're fighting? From the many times I've watched, all that happens is that the guests end up throwing the water on each other rather than drinking it. And they only give it to the female guests, too. Do they give them the water with the intention of starting some wet shirt fights?

In Left-Right politics, where do libertarians fit?

Overall would they be considered more left-leaning, right-leaning, or centrist? It has been confusing to me because they seem to have stances from both sides. From the left side, libertarians claim to support personal freedom, non-interventionalist foreign policy, civil liberties and privacy, secularism, and oppose corporate welfare. And from the right, they support trickle-down, property rights, they oppose gun control, and they say they value individualism.

Has anybody here ever visited or lived in Ukraine?

If so, could you give me some insight on what it's like? How safe is it there?

I have a GF who lives in Poltava, Ukraine, and we have been emailing and video chatting since June. She says she really wants to see me this February. But my parents and my big sister have all been paranoid about me flying over there, considering that it would be my first time flying on my own (in addition to flying abroad) and they told me that Ukraine isn't a fully stable country. And they also said I could have problems asking for things because not many people there know English.
