    I find it interesting who's behind the push for this. A rising tide raises all ships, and if this is the start of companies paying their employers better, then let's have at it!
    Same original "problem", only with bigger numbers. Who didn't see this coming...

I haven’t touched my withholding in years and this “reform” changed everything.

    The other thing that irked me was the stupid format of the 1040. They took a really well-designed form and in order to make the stupids happy, they broke it into multiple pages so it could “fit on a postcard”. That form had been developed over decades and Trump **** all over it. Hurr ****ing durr.

    I was in the same bot with not itemizing for the feds but had to itemize for the state. Just stupid.
    Yeah, the new form is ridiculous in order to make the top level fit on one page instead of 2. I'm surprised the entire IRS didn't quit over stupid **** like that.

    So sick and tired of this bull****. Every merger just means lost jobs and wages for workers.

    On the bright side it's fewer executives we have to castrate and electrocute after the revolution.

    That is a quality reference.



    It's interesting how Silent Movie is completely forgotten in the Brooks Oeuvre. I gotta admit, I have literally no memory of anything in it except Marcel Marceau.

    When presented with a simple math problem, Chase CEO can only answer "I don't know."

    agreed. antitrust enforcement has been on the decline since the regan administration. Consolidation enriches shareholders and the executive suite, and gives consumers less choice via pricing power the incumbents hold. Looking at many major industries - airlines, search, commerce, comms - this has been a persistant trend. And while we are at cycle peak as far as wages, and full employment, if you look at wage's as a % of GDP since the last recession, it has stagnated compared to recoveries in other cycles ( e.g 2000 to 2007).

    This is what we get for lax anti trust and 8 years of easy money from the fed. Bring back the trust busters who might actuall enfroce the sherman anti trust.
