19 and 20 are both worthless ages... its ok.. we have to suffer through them.
27, and after looking at that poll feeling pretty old.
But less than two months away from being twenty! Gosh, I'm already halfway to retirement assuming all goes to plan....
The 1828 tariff was part of a series of tariffs that began after the War of 1812 and the Napoleonic Wars, when the blockade of Europe led British manufacturers to offer goods in America at low prices that American manufacturers often could not match. The first protective tariff was passed by Congress in 1816; its tariff rates were increased in 1824. Southern states such as South Carolina contended that the tariff was unconstitutional and were opposed to the newer protectionist tariffs, but Western agricultural states favored them, as well as New England’s industries. In an elaborate scheme to prevent passage of still higher tariffs, while at the same time appealing to Andrew Jackson’s supporters in the North, John C. Calhoun and other southerners joined them in crafting a tariff bill that would also weigh heavily on materials imported by the New England states. It was believed that President John Quincy Adams’s supporters in New England, the National Republicans, or as they would later be called, Whigs, would uniformly oppose the bill for this reason and that the southern legislators could then withdraw their support, killing the legislation while blaming it on New England: “ What that plan was, Calhoun explained very frankly nine years later, in a speech reviewing the events of 1828 and defending the course taken by himself and his southern fellow members. A high-tariff bill was to be laid before the House. It was to contain not only a high general range of duties, but duties especially high on those raw materials on which New England wanted the duties to be low. It was to satisfy the protective demands of the Western and Middle States, and at the same time to be obnoxious to the New England members. The Jackson men of all shades, the protectionists from the North and the free-traders from the South, were to unite in preventing any amendments; that bill, and no other, was to be voted on. When the final vote came, the southern men were to turn around and vote against their own measure. The New England men, and the Adams men in general, would be unable to swallow it, and would also vote against it. Combined, they would prevent its passage, even though the Jackson men from the North voted for it. The result expected was that no tariff bill at all would be passed during the session, which was the object of the southern wing of the opposition. On the other hand, the obloquy of defeating it would be cast on the Adams party, which was the object of the Jacksonians of the North. The tariff bill would be defeated, and yet the Jackson men would be able to parade as the true “friends.”
Happy b-day Atoga
Another fellow Canuckasthanian in NMA eh!
*gives atoga the secret canadian handshake*
Yeah, I saw your birthday listed at UV.
Um. Only three more years and you can drink your ass off at the slutty strip shows! Not that I've ever done that...
Ozrat beside brassrails, i don't think Tdot has a decent strip club, unlike Montreal, where they are all nude, lesbian shows and dildo insertion
errr... that i've heard.... not that i've gone to any
*winks to Ozrat*
If only I knew what they were like in Tdot aka Toronto anyways. I'm in Hammertown.
I haven't been to a single strip club/whatever yet in my whole life. I hear that the Mannering in Guelph is supposed to be world-class though...
Atoga, if you're ever in Hamilton, don't ever go to ShowWorld, "Canada's largest adult entertainment store". It sucks, royally. Unless you like looking at ass penetration on 20 tv screens.
Exemption of $3,000 for single filers and $4,000 for married couples. Therefore the 1% bottom marginal rate applied only to the first $17,000 ($374,400 in 2010 dollars) of income for single filers, or the first $16,000 ($352,300 in 2010 dollars) of income for married filers (also see adjustments for inflation between 1913 and 2010 in the BLS table, below). The ratio of top marginal rate to bottom marginal rate in 1913 was 7:1 (7%:1%). The last time a similar ratio was applicable was in 1980, when the ratio of top rate to bottom rate was 6.36:1 (70%:11%). In 1981, the top rate was lowered to 50%, and in 1986 to 28% (the bottom rate rising from 11% to 15%). The 1986 change dramatically altered the ratio from 6.36:1 to 1.87:1 (28%:15%). Today the ratio is 3.96:1 (39.6%:10%).
Besides Brass rails ... no
In MOntreal you want to go to Super Sexe, Chez Paré, SolidGold and Les Déesses
And if you are in Trannys go to Cleopatra or the cocks
20 here. Have the life perspective of a bone-cancer-striken, abused, Nietszchean old man. Not to offend anyone who has a one or more of my above examples.
Being 14 sucks.
wish i could be 14 again and know some of the things then, that i know now.
I thought the age of 22 in USA really sucked. Nothing to look forward to but a ball & chain, rugrats, working for somebody, and dying.
All of which are not as exciting as dying for your country because you got tanked while looking at naked ladies & smoking cigarettes when you should have been voting against the war you were in.
Down here you become an adult (full-fledged one at 18). I disagree with this. One should become an adult when one proves that one can take care of oneself. I still live as if I had 16 or 17 years since my university doesn't allow for a job.
If only I knew then, what I know now.
I'da have avoided SO much trouble.
Anyone here from Marietta, Ga. USA ?
Agreed! Oh, I'm 28.5 and also resent beeing counted with the 21's..
Sounds more like a personal ad, and you youngsters need to speak up. CAN'T HEAR YOU!!
sorry guys...i'm also 19.
After reading this thread, I'm thinking these two things:
1. I'm too old to be spending so much time on this juvenile forum
2. I'm so glad that Ugly John and Odin and Montez are also too old to be spending so much time on this juvenile forum
I'm 27 and I'll be 28 within 4 months.
One thing is sure, though: I'm not taking anymore crap from Kharn now that I know he's only 19. Next time he wants to bitchslap me, I'm going to spank that young boy's behind as if it were a tamborine.
