“Goood laawwd that a lot of money!” It cracked me up so much when I checked out at the grocery store the other day I did that impersonation. The cashier got it and we were laughing so hard we couldn’t talk. The bag boy was scared.
Yes. Morality, aesthetics, politics, and value are all objective. The disputes peopke have on these matters points to this. I don’t think our “involvement” creates them (though this may need rephrasing to comport with metaphysical suppositions).
You know that William Penn quotation about right and wrong you like to use? I don’t understand how you can use it when you think matters of moral right and wrong are not objective. It reminds me of Marxists who talk as if they are uninterested in morality when their grievances drip with moral language.
Regulations have brought us a better life with air and water regulations however like everything in government it is over done at some point.
Regulating ditch water may seem great to you but its a giant waste of money and manpower.
In 2005, Michael and Chantell Sackett were working toward what many American families work toward, their own home on their own land, until the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) halted their plans by declaring it a “wetland.”
On Monday, Jan. 9, the Sacketts and their attorneys will ask the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court to not only restore the right to use their own land – but to break the absolute power the EPA has over protected wetlands.
The Sacketts, small business owners in Idaho, located a lot in the northern part of the state in a town called Priest Lake. According to court documents, the lot is less than an acre and is just 500 feet from Priest Lake on its west side. It is separated from the lake by a house and a road and has no standing water or any hydrologic connection to Lake Priest or any other body of water.
Explain how this is not an over reach of regulations.
As to welfare it provides the means for 38% of the workforce to sit home and v=be vegetables.
The safety net is needed for those who cannot provide for themselves or work for a living however it also is abused as is every program managed from DC.
Economic growth in the United States has, on average, been slowed by 0.8 percent per year since 1980 owing to the cumulative effects of regulation:
If regulation had been held constant at levels observed in 1980, the US economy would have been about 25 percent larger than it actually was as of 2012.
This means that in 2012, the economy was $4 trillion smaller than it would have been in the absence of regulatory growth since 1980.
This amounts to a loss of approximately $13,000 per capita, a significant amount of money for most American workers.
LOL, 60% of the American people take from the Federal Government from student loans, medicare, ACA subsidies, medicaid, welfare, SS, got it totally non existent as over half of federal Government spending is on 2 entitlement programs.
Incoherent is when people cannot see the forest for the trees.
