    I was trying to sign up a few days a ago and ran into a snag. I am not a member of LVMI. Is it possible to check off both the membership ($50) and the seminar member rate ($110)? on the same page? It looks like I can because the total updates. Or is it recommended I sign up separately for a membership, then sign-up for the seminar? I want to avoid billing

  • Re: NYC soda ban could another blow for drink makers

    I am going to put my conspiracy cap on. What if big corporations are actually for the drink ban? Does Pepsi benefit for having people spend money on a bunch of smaller drinks as opposed to larger drinks? Do resturants favor this so they can charge more for less? Do packaging companies benefit from more plastic being used? Is Bloomberg creating more

  • Soviet Union and Centrally planned economies?

    I was thinking, given how technology has progresses since the soviet union, do you think a centrally planned economy has a chance of succeding and doing well? Given all the data that can be gathered on purchasing trends and things of that nature. I am not saying it would compare to a truly free market system, or that it is moral. But with the right

  • Re: Statistics Showing Red Light Cameras Making Roads Less Safe?

    Why does red light cameras make roads less safe? If roads were free market, and the owner decided to use red light cameras to deter speeding through lights. would it be less safe?

  • Re: How to maximize damage to states

    However, if you follow a life of freedom, you have to accept the consequences. If you choose not to pay taxes, do the drugs, carry a weapon, People will come after you. And they will compel you to turn on your friends. It would be mighty tempting when faced with jail and felony charges. Survival instincts kick in. You can say behind a computer what

  • Re: Ron Paul vs. Paul Krugman on Bloomberg TV

    I was thinking about this debate today and realized.... Did Krugman really say barter was legal? I was under the impression that for any transaction, government needs to collect a sales tax. For example, if you receive a car as a gift. You have to pay the government a tax based on the Kelly Bluebook value. Not to mention I doubt I can pay the IRS in
