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.

At the end of the day …. “Why Columbus Day Isn’t Being Celebrated By Some People”!!

SLAVER, MURDERER AND THIEF

I find this so interesting.

I remember, when I was in school, the topic of America’s discovery always revolved around Christopher Columbus and his three ships: La Niña, La Pinta y La Santa María. That’s the way it always went.

As I read today, I discovered that this movement to bring forth the reality of his “conquests” was almost four decades in the making.

We end the day with more information and other points of view about Columbus and his actions in this “new land”.

Christopher Columbus is known for “discovering America” and is honored for this with a national holiday and general acclaim by the American people and their government. While this is a nice narrative that countless Americans can recite, Columbus should be better known for one of his statements regarding the native populations of the places he came across, specifically that “with 50 men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”

Columbus isn’t the hero that everyone makes him out to be.

First off, he didn’t “discover America”— people had already been living on that continent for ages. He wasn’t even the first traveler to come across America, as Vikings arrived in America around 1000 A.D. and there are legends of Chinese explorers and Irish monks coming to the continent earlier than Columbus.

So what exactly is Columbus’s legacy?

It is that of a slaver, murderer, and thief who was willing to do anything in order to secure glory and riches for himself.
