say McDonald's charges 1 dollar for a hamburger. 50 cents goes to pay for the product. 20 cents for labor. 10 cents for other costs. 15 for taxes. that leaves 5 cents profit.
for those who need help that is 5% profit margin.
now say all expenses double. 1 dollar for the product. 40 cents for labor. 20 cents for other costs. and 30 for taxes. that leaves 10 cents profit.
and for those who need help that is still only 5% profit margin. meaning that the company is now maki...
genes fault he didn't donate enough money to the highway department so that they could fix that bridge.
the war in Iraq is gene's fault he didn't finish Saddam off in the first war.
9/11 was gene's fault he didn't tell the president that they were going to attack those towers on that day.
you see how easy it is to assign blame. you see how easy it is to make the blame stick to someone.
the war in Iraq is Saddam's fault because he thought he was still dealing with Clinton.

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian court has ruled that a couple could not name their son "Friday" and ordered that he instead be called Gregory after the saint whose feast day he was born on.
"I think it is ridiculous they even opened a case about it," the family's lawyer, Paola Rossi, told Reuters by telephone from the northern city of Genoa on Tuesday.
Friday/Gregory Germano was born in Genoa 15 months ago. The parents registered him as Friday in the city hall and a priest e...
after reading several posts this week here on Joe.
i have run into a problem. frog boy asked it slightly but i will try to put it into prospective.
the liberal left(democrats) are always crying about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. to counter this they always want to raise taxes on the rich which the rich pass on to the customers(the poor).
but the complaint is rich getting richer. the poor getting poorer.
at the sometime they are crying about the rich...
the federal government's job is to do three things.
1 provide education for the nation. ie pay the teachers.
2 provide for the safety of the people.
3 represent the people in international affairs.
that's it nothing more.
under education falls
nasa would fall because without research there isn't anything to teach.
under public safety falls
the federal highways. specifically the interstate which was designed and built for the rapid deployment of...
it seems that the main difference right now between the GOP and the democrats. at least well they are campaigning is the following.
the democrats are trying to empower the government by taxing everyone to death.
the republicans are trying to empower the government by reducing taxes on the people.
both sides are spending like crazy to get reelected. and i don't mean the donated money.
but everyone is welcome to weight in on it. even the clueless one as long as he doesn't use this to attack bush.
the question came up in the senate and the debate about farm subsidies.
1 can we do away with the subsidies all together without food prices going to high for any to afford.
2 can we subsidize the farmer 100%. ie make them employees of the government. and keep the quality and quantity of the food. if we went with this method all American citizens woul...
fox reported today that house spending is up 63% this year over 2006. yet they have yet to pass any appropriation bills to pay for the government for the year that started in Oct.
the Pentagon is considering by passing the house and borrow money from the navy or air force. or fire civilian contractors in the united states.
education 30%+ kids should be left behind if they need to be as they used to be.
federal highways what ever is needed.
since medi care and social security have their own taxes being heldout for them. that is all that should be used to pay those programs. but their money should only be used for that purpose.
and these funds should be used to purchase non voting non controlling stocks in fortune 500 companies to make sure that we have the funds to help everyone. u...
i am not sure that this belongs here. but so what.
i am currently watching the move "the note". the preconception of the movie is that a father wrote a note to his child. when he realizes that the plane he is on is going to crash.
but i believe i have already seen the plot twist. and dad wrote the note to his child who was on the plane. this does not take away from the movie.
i will tell you after the movie if i was wrong and i will probable eat crow.
what posionous plant has become one of the most used food plant around the world.
100 computer cookies to the first one with the answer.
200 if it is gene.
according to fox tonight. the three main authors for the latest nie report are anti-bush. you know like gene is. also fox said that the report says that Iran has stopped weapons building because Iran said it has.
the civilian program is also following the same procedures that you would need to do if you were going to build a bomb.
this isn't going to happen
but what would you eat if all food was free.
me i would probable eat what i eat now just more of it.
