    God forbid a Republican dominated Supreme Court declare "vast swaths" of the federal tax code unconstitutional, forcing the federal government to be drastically reduced. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/supreme-court-tax-decision-moore-v-us/ Washington — The Supreme Court on Thursday left intact an obscure tax enacted as part of Republicans' sweeping 2017 reform package that targets U.S. taxpayers with shares of certain foreign corporations. The court ruled 7-2 that the so-called mandatory repatriation tax, or MRT, is constitutional under Article I and the 16th Amendment, rejecting a challenge from a Washington couple, Charles and Kathleen Moore, who claimed the provision was outside the bounds of the Constitution. Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote the majority opinion. Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch dissented. "he precise and narrow question that the Court addresses today is whether Congress may attribute an entity's realized and undistributed income to the entity's shareholders or partners, and then tax the shareholders or partners on their portions of that income," Kavanaugh wrote. "This Court's longstanding precedents, reflected in and reinforced by Congress's longstanding practice, establish that the answer is yes."

    It's a cheap and (usually) taste fruit! I also love peaches. (Not sure if that's considered a "black thing" or not). And mango. And kiwi. And dragon fruit. And pomegranates. (I knew another black family that had a tree in their year in Pell City Alabama). I guess I'm just fruity.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Swordsmyth again. Very good video. They should make a movie about him. As for Juneteenth as a holiday, it was originally just a "black thing" that we did (I remember when my aunt who is now 72 told me about it and I'd never heard of it before. I was a teen at the time I think). It's kind of like Jews having a holiday for....well everything. (Purim for example for the victory over the family of Haman). Fun fact. Memorial Day was created by freed slaves who wanted to honor Union POWs who died at a Confederate camp.

    So....I'm going to kick myself for saying this, but Swordsmyth is actually correct. Bill Burr pointed this out in an excellent SNL opener a few years ago. The part about women grabbing the victimhood card is made at around 3:25. "You guys (white women) stuck beside us (white men) through centuries of our crimes against humanity. You rolled around in the blood money. And occasionally if you stuck off to get with a black dude and you got caught you said it wasn't consensual. So why don't you shut up, sit down next to me and take your talking to?" :eek: :D But he makes a brilliant point. In terms of economics, white women were in no way left behind. As their fathers, brothers, husbands moved ahead, they were pulled right along economically just the same. And long before there was a man of any race as President Of The United States there were women monarchs on every continent. As for gays getting the whole month of June, Bill Burr jokes about that too. "Oh. It's pride month. That's a little long for people who were never enslaved. How do black people get February, only 28 days, the sun goes down a 4 pm, everybody is shivering, nobody wants to go to the parade." And...at the end of the day....it's just jokes people. Lighten up.

    Actually....the South instituted the draft before the North and the South exempted slave owners based on how many slaves they owned. Do you think that was right? Some areas of the South were slavery wasn't as prevalent seceded from their secessionist states. The Free State Of Jones is one example. Winston County Alabama is another example that is dramatized in a musical that's decades old called Incident At Looney's Tavern. And West Virginia seceding from Virginia is another. Of course the real kicker is, most Americans don't own oil wells but that doesn't mean America hasn't fought wars for oil. (Or bananas. Or opium.) Maybe you need to re-familiarize yourself with "War Is A Racket" by Smedley Butler? Anyhow, I love Josh Johnson's comedy even when I don't agree. Those who cut off comedians just because they are offended by their politics do themselves a disservice IMO. It's like all of the people who get offended by David Chappelle. (Which is just about everybody...but some have a sense of humor about it.)

    I never heard that red velvet cake was a black thing. It is good though. True story. I grew up eating watermelon, including what we grew in the garden from saving and replanting seeds. (Nothing like growing your own food). All was fine until I went to a mostly white Christian boarding academy with it's fair share of racists. I'm not counting everyone who wore a confederate flag (that was half the school). I'm talking about people like the kid with the KKK cartoon on his dorm wall. (Klansman coming out of a flying saucer headed towards a black man picking a watermelon). From that and some comments another white kid made about me liking watermelon while he was eating his watermelon traumatized me to the point of where I didn't eat watermelon for a while even at home. (I wonder Anti Federalist if some of my descendants won't eat watermelon because of a genetic memory of the trauma? :D). Anyhow, this lasted for years even into college until a saw a black comedian doing a bit about how he hated white people stereotyping him and he ended the sketch with "And I walked out of the store with my watermelon." And I was like "Screw it! I shouldn't not enjoy something just because someone else, who might actually secretly enjoy it too, wants to make some racial comment about me enjoying it!" Oh, and here's how I came to terms about the whole confederate flag thing. Most of the time I just ignored it. There was one white girl at the school that came on to me. I seriously considered dating her until one day when a visiting concert band from up north played "The Battle Hymn Of The Republic", her and her roommate went back and got their confederate flag. (Odd because her roommate was from Alaska and how much more northern can you get?) She talked to me later and was like "I don't know why they were offended. It's just a confederate flag." I was like "Ummmm....okay." And then I lost interest. My other confederate flag experience in academy was when I was coding in the computer lab (probably improving a game I wrote), another student was using a computer to draw a swastika. I was like "Why the hell are you doing that?" He was like "I'm full blood German and this is part of my German heritage." I started to say something and then I was like "Drake, you fool! You give these white southerners a pass based on it's their southern heritage. The Nazis were terrible to the Jews but they didn't enslave Africans." (True fact. Hitler treated captured African American POWs and officers better than the U.S. Army by not segregating based on race. And there is the story of the African prince who's mother was German who grew up in Germany during WW 2 and was never persecuted in any way but was disappointed to find out he wasn't allowed to join the Hitler Youth.) When visiting the Christian college this academy was affiliated with, I was offered a good bit in scholarship money because even though my GPA wasn't great (3.17 if I recall), I had the highest ACT of my class. (28 which isn't as good as one of my sons who got a 32, but I took it without any test prep as I thought it was really meant to simply show what you learned in high school). But I declined their offer and got an HBCU to match it. Why? On the college visit our buses were met with student in confederate uniforms and antebellum dresses passing out confederate and U.S. flags. Petty? Maybe. I'm not going to tell other people how to live but I don't have to subject myself to everything either. (Much longer story than I meant that to be.)

    More dishonest deflection from you. I'M NOT FVCKING TALKING ABOUT TRUMP! So take Trump OUT of the equation! If someone other than Trump (A president Rand Paul in 2029 for example) persuaded congress to pass replacing the income tax with tariffs on imports, do you think that would be a workable idea? Why or why not?

    Then it would be more leftist hypocrisy, because leftists are just as into celebrity worship (and "we just have to put the right guy in charge" as "policy") as you two are. I wasn't talking about "people", I was talking about dannno. And I wasn't talking about why anyone would be interested in the case, I was wondering why he seems completely disinterested in the case and interested only in what's running around the bloodstream of some random internet stranger. How did I fail to make that obvious? Or do you just never read what triggers you, the way leftists get triggered by things they can't comprehend?

    You're just all over the soap opera like a cheap suit. But when it comes to the things that matter... Why do the people who care more if famous people are having spats with their significant others than if their neighbor has enough to eat always go for Trump?

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
