    I guess that in this forum all TF.N rules can be freely broken. It seems bullying another user is OK around here... really, this is sad.

    If you wanted to get taxed, Rick Fumes, this is the right way to go about it!

    This is all a lie! Denmark has a more favorable business and corporate environment than the U.S.! Switzerland and Norway too! These are cesspools of lies concocted by Americans to make us feel better about our own overly regulated business climate!

    You gloss over the part where Bowen leisurely and repeatedly insults family members of mine.

    Except I have probably the strongest legs of anyone who has ever posted on this forum, but ok! I can leg press more than 1,000 pounds at my peak and even when I'm not pushing my limits, 800 is not a problem. And yes, I can squat too, I just prefer not to for health reasons. Deadlifting is a cakewalk so let's not even go there. My legs are my strongest aspect and I bench 275, so that should tell you something.

    I'm sorry there are some complete morons on this forum who feel they have to attack other, much more successful, much better looking people than them to feel good about themselves, but that's your problem. Your life is a joke, your values are a joke, and your opinions are a joke. Why this kind of thing is tolerated off Reddit, I have no idea, the moderators here are asleep on the job and don't have any sense of how a forum should be run. I don't need to engage in idiotic flame wars with losers, though, sorry!

    PS: I've been to Europe, and Asia, and Mexico, and Canada, and more than half of the states of the U.S.

    PPS: Socialism is the biggest joke in the world. The idea that other people have to work hard so that the losers of society can sit on a couch and play video games. Yeah, that works! It hasn't worked anywhere, throughout all of recorded human history, because people aren't going to put in maximum effort if they don't even reap the rewards of their hard work. Even a six-year-old can understand that!

    A six-year-old doesn't generally read books on political history either.

    If that's how you interpret socialism then I think there are many Europeans who would disagree with you.

    Bowen, you're acting as if you're fiscally superior to others and yet you bought a plastic Americar and made it look like a transformers car. You also failed to demonstrate adequately what socialism is.

    At what point does your insecurity, which I'm sorry to say is not as hidden as you'd like, make you a parody of yourself?

    Yes, and I really hope so, I would very much like ALL Europeans to disagree with America on our economic policy. Any time a European calls out an American over economics, that's a good thing. We know we're screwed when Europeans go, "Wow America is fantastic, did you hear? They have all these new social programs and a 75% income tax on anyone making over $100,000! It's fantastic!" Why do you think it is that there's so little innovation anywhere else besides America? Or do you just conveniently ignore that? I don't see the rest of the world using some other social media network I've never heard of, do you? I think it's called Facebook and it was made in America. I think the world uses Apple smartphones designed in the United States by an AMERICAN company. I'm pretty sure you're all watching AMERICAN movies that dominate every single country of the world from the deepest darkest 3rd world banana republics to 1st world countries in Europe. You're here because of an AMERICAN film franchise.

    So please, go on about how socialism is so great for business and how so many successful innovative businesses develop in crushingly unfriendly nations where any money you make is taxed to hell and you're left with nothing. Why would you, why would ANYONE, want to start a business and take a huge risk and spend their own money, their own time, in hopes that one day... they get to give most of their money to the government. That is completely against human nature and basic common sense. But then again, common sense doesn't really go with liberal economic thinking, does it? It's all about some little socialist utopia where nobody is poor, nobody is "in need," but nobody is rich, either. It's just this kind of bland mediocrity where everyone is getting by, everyone is doing ok, but there's no greatness to be seen. That's Europe, in a nutshell. Greatness is punished, not encouraged, and as long as that remains in a country or a society, that society will be mediocre.

    Who is insecure?! Haha I love my car, it's one of the best and fastest on the road for sub-$50,000 vehicles. Heck, it's one of the fastest in general, and yes, it looks awesome. I get more comments about that car than most people driving some black Mercedes are going to get even though their car may be twice the price. YOU may not like it, that's fine, I'm not trying to impress bitter, nerdy socialist tools, so I guess I'll have to live with that :p

    If you're so secure, let's hear it, what's so great about your car? What's so great about your life? I think fiscally superior kind of goes without saying. I have more money and I'm worth more money than you'll ever see in your life, and that's not to brag, it's just the truth. What have you accomplished in life? You seem fine throwing rocks at other people, but I would be pretty damn shocked to say the least if you've done anything too impressive. You hide behind anonymity and insult others because of your own insecurity, and then throw around that word like you own it, when in reality you're a petty person and a mental midget. You don't have two brain cells to rub together, any sense of reality, or any idea what the hell is going on in the world. In a word, you are a loser.

    Bowen I'm unsure if anyone here would consider me fiscally struggling, given they think I'm utterly stupid for spending thousands on a wrist watch, having all my suits tailored and my shirts made on Saville Row, or owning a Mont Blanc.

    I'm sure your car is very fast in a straight line - and being an American car, a bundle of catastrophic understeer in corners. It's also so utterly working class. If you want to speak at me as if you're my equal, boy, then perhaps buying a blue collar car is not the way to go.

    Nor is bragging about precisely how much you have, though of course Americans changed the "L" for an "R" in class.

    That's cute, so you have to dress up to impress the boss? I wear a T-shirt and jeans every day, and sometimes a robe, because I AM the boss! If I was, as you said, a stupid American, I would have a much more expensive car. Instead, though, I'm content to own my house with a 20% mortgage and have no other debt of any kind and quite a few assets that pay me every month just for being me! You're right, though, maybe I should go get a $120,000 sports car with credit so I can be typically American. Nah, I'm good! I own my car free and clear and I like it that way. Cars are a terrible investment, plus I work from home, so really? Why would I do that, to impress you? I'm content myself, thanks! And no, the Camaro handles corners very well actually.

    I'm out, have a nice day / nice life, etc. I have better things to do than bicker with you. I wish you the best in your suit and expensive watch and all of the trappings of someone who tries very hard to impress others. I'm sorry you need those things. I feel very comfy in my jeans and T-shirt since, you know, I don't have to impress my employees.

    I'm sorry that response just proves it - insecurity tax of 90% on anyone earning a six figure salary.

    Proceeds will be used to provide essential services - food, rent, medicine, utilities - to people who wish to play X-Box in lieu of working.
