Placeholder It's Your Call

Double trouble

Want to hear something crazy? I just got my personal property taxes on my home and my possessions, and it’s doubled. And it comes from the school district. So why are you trying to close a high school? If my taxes have been doubled, it seems you should be able to keep them open.

Bad company

I bet if you got President Donald Trump’s tax deal, you’d find out he was worse than Al Capone on tax evasion.

Attorney fees

A story reported a $2,050,000 settlement went to two women in DeKalb County. The story said the money was split between the families of the two women. I’m not sure that’s completely accurate. It’d be interesting to know how much of that was for attorney fees. My guess is about 40 percent of that went to the law firm. It’d be nice if someone would check on that.

It fitfully blows

It would be nice if someone would tell the people at the Perkins restaurant that their flag’s all tattered. It looks like it’s been in the battle and Francis Scott Key wrote a story about it.

Bountiful harvest

What happened to Thanksgiving? We went from Halloween to Christmas. Don’t we have Thanksgiving before that? I guess they want to get that Christmas money. They have Black Friday right after Thanksgiving, but they don’t mention Thanksgiving. That’s weird.

Confused

I’m confused about “Haters hate.” Were they talking about liberal people who hate, or people who hate liberals? I was confused.

Exclusion tactic

Some people I know vote for candidates who support labor unions, regardless of what other insane things the candidates support. Some people won’t vote for a person because he or she is not physically attractive, or they don’t like their demeanor. And these same people will forget their stance to stop abortions in favor of putting the first woman in the White House, who is pro-abortion, by the way. Some people shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

Cartel carnage

Nearly an entire American family was slaughtered just across the border in Mexico. If the Democrats get their way with open borders, this will be a daily occurrence right in our country.

Attorney fees, if you weren't directly involved it's none of your business what percentage the attorney fee's were.

mywagginisdraggin

attorney fees are generally 1/3 of settlement, plus expenses.

jdw64485

But still why is it anyone's business. That was a personal business agreement between the attorney and the complainants.

mywagginisdraggin

yep, true

aj0201

Exactly.

aj0201

So someone uses CNN to relay a story and instantly the credibility is questioned because of CNN. Instead of taking the time to fact check for themselves, they disregard because of the byline. What happens is that they look foolish because in this case, the use of CNN was purposeful, just to...oh....let’s call it “rattle some cages.” The FACT is that the Trump administration admitted guilt in this matter and this information comes directly from a court ruling and subsequent ruling. It has been carried on Fox. It has been carried on nearly every news source imaginable. But because you saw “CNN” you immediately discredited. The fact is that Trump lied about money raised at a fundraiser he attended instead of attending a debate. He then failed to give the money out rather he used it for his campaign. Those charities are NOW getting money because of the court order but Trump is no longer allowed to operate as a foundation in NY and his kids have to attend special classes to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Your version is at TOTAL variance with PolitFact's report of the monies raised and distributed.

aj0201

But in line with the court order. And if I’ve got my facts slightly off, the fact remains the Trump campaign was self dealing with charity money. Go ahead and defend that, skippy.

Prediction: Trump is not going to be impeached, and will emerge stronger as a result of the effort. The upcoming Horowitz report and the later Durham report are going to expose Democrat hypocrisy, and possibly prosecute some notable Democrats. BTW, Congressman Nunes is calling for Adam Schiff to testify, under oath, for his interaction with the "whistleblower". Fox knows who the whistleblower is, but is remaining silent for now, but they say when the whistleblower is outed, all credibility will go out the window.

aj0201

Trump and several of his administration have admitted to pressuring foreign governments in to interfering in our elections. How is the Horowitz report going to change that?

The list of what you wonder about is lengthy, I would imagine. The fact is that 16 of our intelligence agencies said that the Russians interfered in our election and they CURRENTLY say it is going to happen in 2020.

Liberals seem to be on a quest to be "offended", and they find just about everything offensive. They are changing song lyrics. They want to ban airplanes and cows. They want to "cancel" Thanksgiving, and go into hysterics over "Black Friday". These people seem to have lost their collective minds. It looks as if they would prefer society to become "mute", since uttering just about any word will send them into a hysterical frenzy. Apparently, not having jobs, they have the time to search everywhere in their quest to be offended.

The poor fall into many categories. Children and those with various disabilities deserve our full support. They are not responsible for their situation. Far too many dropped out of school, or were simply passed along without obtaining any useful skills. As a result they do not qualify for responsible jobs. Very many have very poor money management skills and cannot distinguish between "want" and "need". The problem is with our educational system which currently focuses on "cultural diversity" and "political correctness" while failing to prepare students for life after academia. Schools and teachers need to remember their purpose---to prepare students for adult life. That means providing adequate skills of money management and vocational skills preparing students for the workplace. Too many teachers want to teach a social agenda which translates to a lack of basic skills.

Cartel carnage---More people are killed in Mexico than in Afghanistan and Iraq combined. Mexico is ruled by violent gangs with absolutely no compassion for the country's citizens. They want to increase the amount of drug money (blood money) they take in every year. Those already here commit acts of violence on a daily basis. But all the Democrats see are potential voters. Democrats do not care about our country, only their own power.

Colo

The “Open borders” is a fake Fox noise & lying Trump made up fallacy of desperation. Democrats obviously care about the Constitution far more than Republicans because they are bringing a Criminal to Justice who's continually violated the law for his own personal gain

Exclusion tactic---(voting)---Union officials do a good job of indoctrinating union members to only one point of view. The union rank and file buy the lines hook, line and sinker.

It is the consumer who pays those inflated wages.

When I retired 12 years ago my work package negotiated by my union was $55.00 per hour now. As it was progressing at $1.50 per year it should be around $73.00. Yeahs unions are worthless but only in the minds of the gullible.

Once upon a time I had the opportunity to see what the Union leaders used to spend the Union dues for. I had about 15 different Unions including one very large one in KC. Several were pretty decent...………..several took good care of the leadership....and that included significant contributions to the national office of that union.

Bad company--(Trump taxes)--(1) Trump's taxes are audited every year by the IRS. (2) He never sees his tax return until his financial/legal staffs present it to him to sign. The very wealthy do not sit down at the kitchen table and do their taxes. Like any large corporation, there is an entire staff dedicated to keeping the books and taxes. They will take advantage of any legal deductions allowed, but the IRS makes sure there are no illegalities.

Amazing Bee, how gullible you are with the Daily lying from Komrade Tr! You actually believe he’s being Audited for 3 ½ years straight?

"big money" people are audited nearly constantly, year to year.. FACT

So what? Trump promised to release his taxes. It is unlikely his 2016 or 2017 tax filings are still under audit. And even if they are, there is nothing saying he can’t release them. His tax returns are “perfect.” He won’t release them. His phone call was perfect. He hasn’t released a transcript. He’s done nothing wrong. He won’t let his administration testify.

There were the Big 8 Accounting firms......some individual CPAs ( locals) , of course H&R Block was included, a College Professor and other "types" of preparers. Interesting that in the 50 returns, there were no two the same. The IRS struggles to find illegalities...………….but they sure don't find all the "alternatives".

beelog's assessment of CNN's alleged (by aj) reporting of the 2016 event is justified by reality as reported by PolitiFact, itself a left of center medium. A list of the forty veteran charitable organizations and the amounts they received from the Trump event is available at:

aj0201

2016? Versus a court finding from this week? Laughable.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The "court finding".....New York Judge Scarpulla agreed the monies raised for the military charities DID INDEED go to those charities. Her problem with the issue was with the Trump campaign choosing which military charities the monies would go to instead of the Trump Foundation. Some might ask "what difference does it make, the charities got the monies?" True, but the Trump campaign wasn't controlled by the New York courts and agencies, BUT the Trump Foundation WAS. So, the New York Court gets its pound of flesh and "news pundits" such as aj0201 get to crow, but the military charities DID get the monies as promised by President Trump and as reported by PolitiFact. Some might say that is what counts, that is certainly how I would see it.
