    Nope, I was referring to the poll on Gundy changing qb’s during the game.

    The rich paying their fair share

    There’s nothing anecdotal about it, the types of benefits I’m referring to are doled out every day and they typically have a ‘material’ impact on the top % of %. Let’s use @StillwaterTownie ’s favorite subject as another example. I assume we all agree that bankruptcy is a legal transaction...

    The rich paying their fair share

    I’ve tried explaining it several times but I’ll try it once more and make it as simple as I can. I’ll use 2 current person(s) as examples: Elon Musk has received over $6B in taxpayer funds, his net worth is, or at least did, approach or even exceed $1B, I don’t know his salary nor do I care...

    Warren releases DNA analysis that shows she's Native American

    My sister and her family have lived in Yukon going on 27 years, I guess that makes her a Czech.

    The rich paying their fair share

    Like most people I have no say in gvt programs that I’ve benefited from and yes every program I’ve benefited from I consider wrong, it’s taking from someone else to give to me, there’s no justification for it. I do have a question for not just you but everyone, what difference does it make what...

    The rich paying their fair share

    It doesn’t matter what financial stratosphere you’re in, taxation is theft. If you make $40k, $300k, or $1b or more you should not pay a federal income tax on what you earn. Fairness is always going to be seen through the eyes of the author and published with the color of their emotion. That’s...

    The rich paying their fair share

    That’s certainly part of their subsidies but by no means is that the entirety of what they receive. But just using that as the por Walmart’s profits are buffeted by over $100m per annum by taxpayers. Sometimes the line between the recipients is blurred but the payer is never in question, it’s...

    The rich paying their fair share

    The ultra wealthy is what this conversation is about, to answer your question - if I’m remembering correctly in 17 Forbes published that every Walmart in the country receives between $1M and $1.6M in public assistance annually. I would have to find and reread the article to see what all is...

    The rich paying their fair share

    You found me out everything I’ve posted since I joined has been a giant ruse that offered cover for my admiration for bho. Let’s just take a look at a few companies whose primary shareholders (ie ultra wealthy) are materially subsidized by the US taxpayers: I’m not talking about the Mom and pop...

    The rich paying their fair share

    I’m not suggesting it, I know it. Your limiting your definition of gvt benefits to direct handouts and while I disagree with that, I also disagree with the funds the gvt provides both direct and indirect to the ultra wealthy. So, in so far as it goes, your statement is correct but it’s...

    Verizon cutting 45,000+ jobs. Ford cutting 24,000 salaried jobs.

    There are many different ways to file for bankruptcy protection, without an understanding of the difference in filings there’s no logic to any post on the subject. Google will help but you need to read in depth to truly grasp the differences, they are substantial.

    Dumb/Sometimes LOL Political Pictures

    As you know, this is the dumb / lol thread also as you know I don’t support much of any gvt regulation. BUT A kid made very well be forced to eat like this if the parents do, well I guess they could starve but that’s a helluvan decision for a child to have to make. I think, I didn’t create it...
