| Pirates steal from the production of the private sector... |
I know (or at least hope) your taking the piss, but that's essentially akin to stealing taxes. If the business sector's financial returns mean that they're a drop in tax revenue compared to expected takings.
This is quite true, but of course you knew I was talking about prima fascia
vectors, not secondary effects.
|Short of cutting fiscal spending, which as most economists will tell you in a time of relative economic uncertainty is generally a great way of promoting negative growth, all you can do is either borrow or increase personal taxes. Or, more usually, a combination.|
The production possibilities curve
is a major bitch when you factor Pirates into the equation, right?!

|On topic, this is a stupid idea. Petitioning to end the CIA just because you saw one video created by a the Zeitgeist group is seriously sad.|
Not to mention it puts you in the White House's sights.
Does anyone remember Obama's first days in office? How the White House put up that "snitch on your neighbor" link on the site, where you were supposed to report anything or anyone you thought "suspicious", in the name of National Security? It was met with such a sh!tstorm of Public Disapproval that it very quickly disappeared... but do you really think that the Great Minds who created that mess just as quickly lost interest in keeping tabs on "troublemakers"? I'd watch my azz around those White House petition links if I were you. Just saying.
Let me know if any dark vans start parking on your street, so I can disavow any knowledge of your existence, mmkay?
