Says who? Certainly not you since you hypocritically still use money while there are starving people in Africa.

Sorry, you've still lost.

Wrong. I use the app to get the cheapest. It is not my problem if others are too stupid to do so.

Interesting. Why do you then not follow the apostles? We should but you don't have to?

Jesus and most of his disciples were crucified to death. Jesus did that so we dont have to. Its very possible that not using money carries the same principle.

When will the religious stop abusing children, Gaetan? Are they paid so much per child or how does it work?

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/10...=mmx&PC=EMMX20

All religion must be abolished, Gaetan. Beginning with your weird one.

Where does it end, Gaetan? When will the religious stop abusing children? We must abolish religion at all costs for the future of humanity. How much longer will you continue to say nothing?

You've never had an argument. You've had your weird religion and nobody here is buying it. Everything you've said has been proven to be wrong. You even lie about what your own novel says. You have zero credibility.

So you couldn't even convince yourself to give up money for the starving people in Africa with your computer and your cell phone and your internet access.

Do you deserve your wages as Jesus says, Gaetan?

Your posts are getting more bizarre and incoherent. Get back on the topic of abolishing religion, which is evil. Without religion, there would be no war in the Middle East and there wouldn't be any religious abusing children.

Do you have anything to say about the religious abusing children? Anything at all?

Hey Gaetan, guess which type of porn this pastor was arrested for possessing?

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime...cid=spartanntp

"Former Ridgewood pastor charged with possession of child pornography"

How much money do the religious get for victimizing and exploiting children, Gaetan?

Is that why you're mad at money? Because you have a job that pays little? Yet you can still afford a computer and cell phone and internet access while there are starving Christian children in Africa. Why do you refuse to share your wealth with starving Christian children, Gaetan?

How much money was the perpetrator paid for this crime, Gaetan?

Well, that's no more bizarre than anything else you've said. So you've got that going for you.

Any comment on how much money this Republican senator got for possessing child porn?

https://www.abc27.com/news/local/gov...n-immediately/

"Governor: Pennsylvania senator arrested for child pornography should resign immediately"

Any comment on events that are happening in reality, Gaetan?

It's not taken. You are spending it. Control that part and maybe you won't be so concerned with what others are making.

I can assure you that while a number of people here are, let's just saying doing well, none of us are "rich"

Do these rich people you refer to given access to your bank account? How exactly do they take your money?

When my employer deposits money into my bank account, I do have bills to pay but I pay them myself. It is not taken from me.

And as I said earlier, the fact that you have enough money and time to make up stories on the internet indicates to me that you have an easier life than many "poors".

That's what it sounds like whenever you try to deflect the discussion away from how you refuse to use your wealth to help the poor starving Christian children in Africa. You continue to use your computer and your cell phone and your internet access to spread your hypocritical lies.

FTFY

You also tip your hand when you try to deflect away from the true evil of religion. How much money do the religious make for abusing children, Gaetan?

Gaetan, do you live in reality?

More problems occur from a lack of money and not from having too much.

The solution is for people to have more money, not less.

I'm also going to assume that this is another of your religious lies until you provide a link showing where the UNO said climate change is caused by money.

You do understand that you don't gain back credibility by adding lies, right?

What "white supremacists"? None were mentioned in any of the linked articles.

Mandatory sentencing "can't be 2 justices" as such sentences are, well, explicitly mandatory.

Repeat offender laws are specifically not an "eye for en eye law". They are specifically harsher than the offense that might trigger them and perhaps even harsher than the cumulative effect of all contributing offenses.

While there are plenty of arguments against mandatory sentencing and repeat offender laws, equity ("an eye for an eye") and discretionary application after conviction ("2 justices, one easy for you and one hard for others"), aren't any of them.

Heck, the lack of equity in the sentencing has basically been your only point on this case. While the lack of sentencing discretion is an explicit point of the case you apparently just want to ignore evidently simply in order to judge others involved more harshly.

Mt 7 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
Well, that's just a crappy prospect for you. You previously judged and condemned the presiding judge for something explicitly outside his control. You just judged some unmentioned people as "white supremacists". You judged a singular mandated sentencing as "2 justices, one easy for you and one hard for others". Heck, in Alabama the '3 strikes' law doesn't even kick in till the fourth conviction, so it is even more forgiving than other such laws. You have simply misjudged and misrepresented everything about this case.

By your own standard, misjudgment and misrepresentation is all you can expect to be pronounced upon you.

A solar farm is being installed across the street from me. Who paid for that Gaetan, people "trying to save their bank account" to invest in such things or "People like yous" who spend their money, as fast as they make it, on less carbon neutral endeavors?

Would I get as many Ferraris and Lamborghinis and guns and yachts and mansions as I wanted since they would all be free?

And sex workers would also be free?

Back to the fundamental problems. How do you account for those who would take out of the economy than they put in? Let's say your filipino buddy works 40 hours a week, but extracts 50 hours of work from others? Your economy is now short 10 hours. Also, how would you account for this in the first place? Let's say, due to no fault of his own, injury or illness, he extracts 1000 hours of goods and services and puts in zero hours? See the problem?
