Whether it's legit or not, the exchange of goods for money is an economic transaction and drug dealing is as much an economic transaction as buying an Ipod at Best Buy.

Leaching implies dependence to me - if someone's getting paid, illegality notwithstanding, their economic standing is improving. I wouldn't consider that leaching.

yes, but economic transactions have a greater social impact - taxation leading to gov't revenue, employment of people creating benefits and predictable and stable income sources, impact on gdp and real economic indicators. black market activity has none of that, and in fact, just takes money out of the economy. that's the leaching part.

I make money under the table as a musician.

Does that make me a leech?

i suppose so, but considering that you spend thousands at guitar shops on your sg collection and you probably put at least as much money as you make back into the bar in beers, i would say no...

Come on! You are totally going on a double standard?

What do you think a drug dealer does with his money?

Lights it on fire?

As for the government not taxing it? Sounds like THEY are the leech to me

Me and my buddy were watching the game last night and in the bottom of the 8th he was like "They are going to blow it, I know they are"

And I said "I know"

Thanks Overbay.

i was jokingly making fun of acie's guitar collection and his assumed propensity to consume beer as he plays. it was meant as a joke. my apologies for not using several smilies to get that across.

Somebody needs to find me one of these girls:

http://topcultured.com/relationships...rld-take-note/

Seriously...That's money.

How come I can only pick up hot chicks that I'm not into their personality, or am into the personality of non-hot chicks..but you know..they aren't hot.

Anyone got the right mix for me?

Girl is definitely a doormat. Having a girl that can take care of you is nice, but she has to be able to tell you to fuck off when need be.

who's to say dude hasn't been busting his ass to take care of her for the last couple of weeks, or that it isn't his birthday, or that he didn't make her come 6 times the night before, or that she's not just doing something nice for a day? seems like a cool chick to me.

Guess it's tough to know either way. Maybe she just wants new curtains, or something.

My girlfriend left me a plate...

I LEFT MY DIRTY DISHES IN THE LIVING ROOM, WITH MY SOCKS THAT ARE ON THE FLOOR. SORRY ABOUT TAKING UP THE ENTIRE CLOSET IN THE BEDROOM WITH CLOTHES I NEVER WEAR BUT REFUSE TO GET RID OF. THAT'S OK, SINCE YOU DON'T NEED A CLOSET. JUST KEEP YOUR CLOTHES IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM NEXT TO THE LARGE TUB I USE TO STORE THE 800 PAIRS OF SHOES I NEVER WEAR. I'M OFF TO SHOP FOR MORE CRAP I'LL NEVER USE BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO DEAL WITH! LOVE YOU!!! XXX
