As I said, I go months between visits to Walmart because I don't like giving them business but there are times where they are the only options because they are the only place open 24 hours around here because they got the other ones shut down before they started acting so shitty here.

    Food Lion? Closed at 11pm
    Family Dollar? Closed between 10-11pm.
    Dollar General? Closed between 10-11pm.
    IGA? Closed.
    Quick Stops? Didn't care any.
    Lowes? Wasn't built at the time near here.
    Anywhere else? Clear on the other side of town near the mall and all closed except bars.

    So, between endangering a child and going to Walmart, you think endangering the child is an actual option there......

    No, I'm saying you had choices, and you probably made the right choice. Well, I would have had bug killer on hand, but that's just me. I'm a person who likes to be prepared.

    You are proving my point for me. As much as you despise Wal-Mart, they are huge, because they are cheap and convenient. They are open, when other places are closed.

    Stop blaming me, for the choices you make in life.

    Alright, I am done at this point.

    You are either trolling or flat out fucked in the head and done entertaining the lies and the bullshit and the selective omissions to the point you are willing to get children endangered and killed while letting the elderly suffer and die just to back fantasies.

    I'm out and not doing this anymore. I really HOPE you are playing otherwise you are a danger to your wife and kids if you have them at this point as you would endanger them the moment the alternative goes against your ideology.

    Nah, you called me a fucking monster, because you went to Wal-Mart in the middle of the night, for some convenience shopping. I wasn't there, but it's somehow my fault that you did what you did.

    This is demonstrative of the lack of responsibility that we need to address in this country.

    You didn't have bug killer, so you solved the issue. If Wal-Mart didn't exist, you would have been in a house with bugs for a night. Somehow, this is my fault, in your eyes.

    No, the issue is that I don't have a hate boner for wealthy people, and I'm not trying to equate wealth to income.

    But hey, at least we've covered that we're aware of how much Jeff Bezos earns as income, and that he's paying the appropriate taxes on that income.
    lol, Liar, which is it again, either he takes a small paycheck because of his stocks (which you've now agreed to) or he doesn't.

    This has nothing to do with you and your stupid Chipotle stock that you seem to be abnormally proud of btw.

    If you worked at Chipotle, and took a smaller paycheck than you should, because you owned massive amounts of Chipotle stock, then it would be comparable. Until then fucking stop comparing apples to hammers.

    What bugs me the most about this is one of my late uncles had Machismo's ideology and he wasn't kidding in the slightest. Everyone else just nodded and ignored him because he was batshit in his views but he kept wanting to discuss them. I was the only one who pushed back and respectful (Unlike now) to him and he was to the point he thought I was trying to pick a fight with him by disagreeing.

    In his views, you were only worth whatever you could get. If you could only get a quarter a week for your time, that was all you were worth. Didn't matter what it took to survive, didn't matter what the job market was. And don't you dare take your quarter a week job and apply for welfare to feed yourself and your family otherwise you were taking HIS money from him. And it was never the fault of the business owners or managers or any of them.

    And government mandating wages, hours, WORKING CONDITIONS, all of that was bad in his eyes. And he was dead serious on this stuff.

    Also, if anyone asks, he was a former prison guard...

    Macho on the other hand...does everything to deceive, obscure, he's a compulsive liar when he isn't deflecting or otherwise trying to hide his own politics. He's akin to Martin Shkreli before he got arrested for being a rotten human being.
    Machismo is actually a libertarian. I don't think he voted for Trump or would support him. Several states in 2020 only went Biden because a surprising number of libertarians actually voted third party instead of backing Trump.

    There is a relatively small number of hardcore libertarians who bought into complete insanity of anarcho-capitalism and despise Republicans because they think that Republicans are authoritarian loons. Libertarians fall into two broad categories, shitheads like Rand Paul (who is a "libertarian" but doesn't really mind the whole authoritarianism bit) and third party Libertarians who are Republicans without the racism/women hating. They just want billionaires to run the show, as it is divinely ordained by the god of Capital, Rand Paul and ilk wants white male libertarians to run the show, and doesn't really mind using force to get there.

    I'm aware of what he is.
    However he's the only one here that wants to protect the wealthy, and by extension, Trump's wealth.

    LOL, come on you are old enough. Pre-Walmart you used to have a bunch of 24 hour places to stop.
    Hell you could get bug killer at the expanded gas stations if you wanted too.

    Walmart came in and it no longer paid to stay open 24 hours a day to compete with them taking a loss from 10p-5am because they can make it up from 6a-9p.

    Our local hardware store had a 24 hour emergency # that you could call the owner and manager if there was a real emergency and they would actually come open up to sell you what you needed. It was amazing, but that was the good old days when owners were more in touch with the community and were actually part of it.
    Not sure bug spray would have qualified but hey....
    Buh Byeeeeeeeeeeee !!

    Imagine reading Robin Hood stories and coming out thinking he was an evil villain who terrorized the rich and the Sherrif was actually the hero, trying valiantly to protect the wealth of the rich.

    That image pretty much perfectly sums up a lot fo things. Machismo just thinks it's unfair to tax the heir more.

    I can pretend to be Machismo in his absence, if that helps?

    "If you tax the poor heir, they will lose their company in 8 years. You don't understand the difference between wealth and income. They built that company up on their own. Will any of you pay more tax to support other people being lazy? I didn't think so. Everyone will just sit around and take advantage of the system unless you clamp down on them. Poor people should plan ahead better."

    Did I miss anything?

    And a lot of the arguments boil down to "but we have carefully crafted and defined a system where they don't get taxed more, so any argument to change that means you're not using words correctly!"

    And that's, obviously, horseshit, because we're talking about re-building and re-defining that system.

    It's a smug fait-accompli approach to bad-faith derailment. "We already made it the wrong way, so you have to stop trying to fix it." An insistence that the status quo is "just" by virtue of being the status quo, and nothing more. Which is why I said his arguments were the same as anti-abolitionists in the early 19th Century. The same "but this is how things are, we can't even conceive that they could ever be changed, that's unfair. We already won and blew the whistle and that means the game is over and you have to stop playing!"

    And that just isn't how anything works.

    To be fair...

    The inheritance tax should've amply covered that.

    And on that note anyone know if Saint Lynsi Snyder paid any inheritance tax. I did a little digging but I have no idea if she did or not. Did her grandparents get one of them fancy South Dakota trusts to dodge the IRS?
