TRICKLE DOWN

I lived in Puerto Rico until 1999.

While still in PR, I started working with the federal government in 1985.

Up to that time, I was paying taxes to the government of Puerto Rico.

When I started with the federal government, I had to add paying taxes to the USA also.

That meant that a considerable part of my personal income went to the coffers of two major countries.

My own, Puerto Rico, and the United States, my employer.

I don’t believe that anyone pays taxes happily.

I do believe that we pay taxes because it’s our civic duty and obligation.

I was and never will be at the economical/income bracket that Mr. Trump seems to be.

I’m a retiree. I’ve been retired for three years now.

I still pay taxes.

Why would someone, born with a silver spoon in his mouth, be any better than me?

Any better than any of us?

Trump didn’t pay taxes because he found a loophole that allowed him to keep all of his income while not paying taxes and declaring $916 million loss that would be offset by not paying taxes for almost 20 years!

Many complain that ‘illegal immigrants’ don’t pay taxes.

Well, if they have a job, they do.

I guess that neither these immigrants or myself can be included in the ‘genius’ category.

I think we are to be included in the honest, responsible and idiot categories!

Paying your taxes is considered a civic duty, although doing so is also a requirement of the law. If you do not pay your taxes, the government agency that oversees taxes – the Internal Revenue Service or IRS – will require you to pay your taxes or else face penalties, such as fines or going to jail.

~Giuliani claims Trump ‘a genius’ for not paying taxes~

( … that’s the campaign’s talking point … )

THE MAN IS A GENIUS!

‘That makes me smart’

… in the bizarro world he has created for himself and his ilk!

Rudy Giuliani called Donald Trump a “genius” Sunday, October 2, in the wake of a New York Times report indicating he may have legally avoiding paying taxes for nearly two decades.

“The reality is, this is part of our tax code.

The man’s a genius.

He knows how to operate the tax code to the benefit of the people he’s serving,” the former New York City mayor told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”

Throughout the contentious interview, Tapper repeatedly pressed Giuliani on his claims that Trump was a “genius” and a good businessman based on The New York Times reporting.

“I think that there are a lot of very, very successful businessmen and women who pay federal income taxes and don’t look for every single opportunity there is to avoid paying them,” Tapper said at one point.

The New York Times reported Saturday. September 24,  that Trump reported a loss of $916 million on his 1995 tax records – which, tax experts said, would have allowed Trump to avoid paying income taxes for a period of 18 years.

DISGRACED IN ALABAMA

Roy Moore Suspended From Alabama Supreme Court For Anti-Gay Marriage Order

~KARMA~

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore suspended over same-sex marriage order
By Ray Sanchez, CNN

(September 30, 2016)

Alabama’s chief justice Roy Moore was suspended without pay Friday, September 30,  for the rest of his term for directing probate judges to enforce the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

redlineb

The state Court of the Judiciary, in a 50-page decision, cited Moore’s “disregard for binding federal law” as a reason for the suspension.
Moore’s administrative order to probate judges was issued in January – seven months after a landmark Supreme Court ruling legalized gay and lesbian nuptials nationwide.
Moore’s term runs through January 2019.

He is 69 and will be ineligible to run for re-election because of his age.

Friday’s ruling also cited Moore’s “history with this court,” saying it was the second time he had been brought before the judiciary court for “actions grossly inconsistent with his duties as Chief Justice.”

Thoughts for today, #418 …. “Clinton vs. Trump …. Most-Watched Presidential Debate Ever …. “!

CLINTON-TRUMP SHOWDOWN

The Most-Watched Presidential Debate Ever

An estimated 84 million people watched Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in their first debate Monday, September 26, according to TV ratings data from Nielsen, making it the most-watched debate ever.

These figures top the ratings for the 1980 debate between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, when just under 81 million people tuned in.

As The Associated Press reports,

“No debate since then had exceeded 70 million viewers.”

Nielsen’s numbers include 13 television networks.

They don’t account for viewers who watched the debate online – and NPR’s media correspondent David Folkenflik has been crunching those numbers.

When you add viewers who used other ‘channels’, the number increases to 100 million.

Other options included Twitter, YouTube and varied social media.

“If you are interested enough to watch, I hope you’re interested enough to vote.”

Ellen DeGeneres

I agree!

Go vote!
