Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

One of the main reasons it so difficult to change/simplify the tax code is the special interests of those companies that make tax software--Intuit, et.al. agreed. though, I'm flabbergasted that there are special interests who influence legislation, other than the NRA.......

Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

The Trump/Ryan proposed tax plan eliminates the deduction for state and local taxes on individuals, but preserves them for corporations. Probably the cleanest thing that could be done is eliminate all corporate deductions, then special interest corporate deductions could be rebuilt over time. That ...

Really? You really think they pay their fair share and they should get more cuts? :roll: what would you call "fair share"? Should "the rich" pay a higher percentage? Is that what you mean? To Docs point: "The poor" as defined, don't pay income tax, right? And those jus...

Re: Donald Trump is my hero

well, the nice thing is, the prez. can't just push a button and "launch nukes". There is a chain of command and layers of people involved. It can be a "lawful order" as far as the prez. making it. but, the people along the chain can question it and delay/refuse.

I was at the '07 Crude Awakening (oil derrick) Burn and from a good distance back it was HOT!! One of the cannons didn't even fire.
