  2. I would love to see our nation's infinite financial capacity put towards developing better ways to capture, store and transport the energy of the sun.

  3. Author Burkhard Braun writes: "We pay lower taxes, averaging 27 percent, than any other developed nation." Fact: Eleven major European countries have tax rates ranging from 60 percent to 80 percent...

    You: 30% is lower than 80%.
    Him: Not true! 30% is lower than 80%!

    Um... did I miss something here?

  4. Re: Steven, I'd like to see our nation's infinite financial capital put toward anything more appropriate than vacation homes for the wealthy (the opposing op-ed being written by a real estate mogul...)!

  5. Too true. Perhaps another opposing author will emerge that owns a Porsche dealership.
