Well .............. no, not one thing in particluar .............. just about all of it.


Got it - you have nothing to discuss but will stick with the insults.


Only if the truth is insulting.


I'm still waiting to hear your "truth" instead of the silly games.


I never expect trump supporters to recognize the truth.


trump supporters will never recognise and admit the truth.

 

Just as trump doesn't tell the truth twice as often as he accidentally misspeaks and mistakenly and inadvertently tells the truth - his followers and supporters are irrevocably wedded to telling untruths and disingenuously attempting to make their untruths sound as if they were truths - and utterly and repeatedly failing in those attempts...

 

H. Sapiens has successfully lived in socialistic tribal groups for over fifty millenniums before a malignantly narcissistic psychopath discovered he could lie his way into the presidency and induce gullible **bleeps** to support him...

Nonsense - PEOPLE take deductions, hire tax accountants, use turbotax, etc.

 

Unless, of course, they make so little they are not subject to federal income taxes. In which case, they are completely out of the loop in terms of any benefits from the tax cuts.  A group, I would point out, the Republicans find it a personal affront that they don't pay taxes.  They don't find it an affront that the same group is poor, only that they don't pay taxes.  Republicans hate it when any group does not contribute to the reallocation of wealth they so love.

You are correct that everyone hates taxes but only the Republicans seem to so adept at avoiding them. This is why the tax cuts were really a forced redistribution of wealth. Republicans always mistake being greedy with being a capitalist and they are not really the same. Countries like Canada have much more upward economic mobility than the United States and they still have a common pension plan and universal health care.  The U.S. has declining infrastructure, sub par banking systems, and whole parts of the country without access to healthcare or Internet.

Up here in the state that's closest to God, where somewhere between 100 and 400 inches of snow is the yearly norm, the state owns some of the plows, the counties own some of the plows, and many of the cities and towns own plows - even some private businesses own plows...

 

What was your point?

 

Oh yes - BTW - the state that's closest to God enacted laws limiting and restricting payday loan operations - just as God and Jesus would want...


 


I seem to recall some kind of tiff between Jesus and the money lenders/exchangers.

Ah yes, make sure you give a couple of bucks to the middle class so you can claim it is all for them.  Of course, the top 10% get millions returned and the middle 80% get enough for a dinner at Pizza Hut.  How fair of you all. 
Tax cuts are based on tax paid. What could be simpler.

Every payday loan operator I have ever met was a Republican and I have met a few. They are the cause of a lot of the folks at the homeless shelters.

Now that is really a bit much. Do you really ask people you are asking for money what their Party is??

  

When did Republicans legislate subsidized military or highway systems.  Society needs to work together to provide services. and infrastructure. Republicans HATE paying taxes which is why we have private prisons.  How nice to assign a profit motive to locking more people up, eh?
