    Amazing.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I knew I'd find it eventually.

    The day before the 2016 West Virginia Republican primary, Trump told CNN's Chris Cuomo, "Everybody is getting a tax cut, especially the middle class."
    Again. Lies. EVERYONE includes me rufus and rube. I did NOT get a tax cut.

    So, he's a ****ing liar. I just proved it.

    So, you didn't get even a little bit more take-home pay?

    Irrelevant. Sure, they cut my withholding. They cut everyone's. But if you read the articles that are coming out everyone's ticked about that because they're doing their taxes and getting no refund. The number that matters, the only number that matters is how much you pay in total to the Feds in taxes. I came out even. I did not get a tax cut.

    I will be very interested to see once they start writing about it how many got nothing and how many got something. My accountant made it pretty clear to me who got the big breaks and who did not. But, I'll wait for the data.

    Your scenario is what I expected, which I why I didn't count on a refund. However the reality is that my income went up 9% this year, my withholding was about 4% lower, and my actual taxes owed to the feds were also 4-5% lower. So, my refund was even bigger than last year.

    I guess I benefited from the grift. *shrug*

    Unless I did it all wrong, in which case I expect a 5 AM no-knock raid on my apartment at some point in the coming weeks.

    republicans only turn on their own when they speak the truth. trump could fvck their daughter, dog and wife and a trump supporter would find a way to be OK with it. Despite the fact he voted with trump 90% of the time in 2017, by 2018 only 1 in five Arizona republicans had a favorable view of Jeff Flake. The republican party is 100% the party of trump. What trump says is all that matters, and nothing he says bothers his supporters because they believe everything he says. After 40 years of indoctrination, republicans have finally found their Jim Jones.

    Analysis. Republicans are calling it socialism and it's a good thing for them. Rich Lowery.

    Government cannot achieve it, only the private sector can.

    Moral of the story I guess. Every time the Democrats propose something bold the Republicans and the Wall Street Journal call it socialism. Meanwhile the fossil fuel industry continues to receive it's subsidies including massive Industrial Military Complex spending.

    I donít care what color they are, Iím not super excited about the prospect of a US population growing to 400+million. Our cities are already unaffordable and you know people arenít going to move to rural areas. Sprawl is also destroying the character of many places.

    I wish we could come up with an economic model that didnít require constant growth. For the sake of the planet we should be downsizing our population, but itís just not possible without economic collapse.
