    That was good. My favorite was "Gun control isn't about guns. It's about control.";c

    I've used MindWorkshop software for AGES!

    Graphic Workshop is an incredible 'niche' tool, and even the FREE version is well worth the download.

    GWS will convert just about ANY graphic file format into just about anything else.

    These folks are geeks with a great attitude and some very good products.

    I HAVE NO AFFILLIATION WITH THEM and no motive other than good stuff, not 'crippleware' and a fair price.

    That's a good amount of wisdom, except for:


    World War II was caused by the butchering of millions of innocent people. If anything, this guy is a pseudo intellectual who hasn't come to grips with what happened then, or, he's just a dolt with a few good points.

    I personally like the disclaimer. A couple points got to me. Good stuff overall.

    I particularly liked the one regarding ethics and morality. It very closely aligns with my own beliefs.

    However, the explanation of corporate taxation and dividends is not valid in the U.S., where corporations do not get a deduction for paying dividends to shareholders. The result is double taxation of profits which are paid out to dividends. This is why closely held companies spend so much time and effort trying to recharacterize dividends as something else (e.g. interest payments).

    Not that I took it too seriously or anything....
