Donald Trump Also Can’t Stand The Steve Bannon Impression On ‘SNL

I’m just about ready for this second debate, although not without trepidation. The RNC and America’s top Republicans urged Trump to demonstrate contrition. His supporters, we hear, encouraged him to double down on his misogyny and lack of character by using Bill Clinton’s alleged misdeeds to de-emphasize the seriousness of his own. Clearly, he has listened to his supporters. I can’t imagine how Priebus, Ryan, and Pence will react tomorrow.

Donald’s answer to the tax question is to eliminate the provision for carried interest. That is to say, the general partner of a limited partnership has their income taxed as capital gains, even though they haven’t actually invested their own money. That’s the only provision he references – not the income tax rate – not the special deals for the real estate industry – not the inheritance tax deals. In point of fact, Trump uses business losses to fund deals in which he insists on getting paid up front – so the losses come from his partners, while he makes both money and a tax benefit. It’s the longest con imaginable.

Donald Trump is an idiot. How the American public can reconcile their support for this man and still consider their conscience clean and leaning towards a religious nature to be true is a stain upon their souls.

He lies so often, and defiles the higher nature of every person willing to stand by him.

That’s okay DT, not many folks like your impression of a President.

The EPA was just directed to freeze all grants. This means that graduate students and researchers funded on EPA funds are now without funds. All ongoing studies are stopped.
Scientists at the EPA and USDA are also blocked from communicating with the press or through the internet.
It all happened in a moment with a memo, by executive action, with zero input or oversight.
It could happen to any Federal institute, including the National Science Foundation, which funds research at universities around the country — including the health insurance and living stipends of many, many students. Trump also froze all federal hiring yesterday.
Please, if you can safely raise your voice, raise it loudly. Call your congresspeople, call the White House, write op-eds and articles and blog posts. AND TWEET This is only Day 4.
(Share widely– copy and paste is best to share with people outside our common friends. I did not write this. It was copied and pasted from a scientist who wants to remain anonymous. The fear of retaliation is real.)

Defining Trump Presidency – Tyrant

A tyrant, in its modern English usage, is an absolute ruler unrestrained by law or person, or one who has usurped legitimate sovereignty. Often described as a cruel character, a tyrant defends his position by oppressive means, tending to control almost everything in the state. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyrant

Dumb Coal Miners Will Lose Obamacare Benefits

01/04/2017 – Who ever said coal miners are smart…dah, they voted for Trump with the promise of coal mining jobs but didn’t think it through. Currently, black lung benefits exist via Obamacare, but with the repeal of the insurance plan, coal miners will loose all benefits. By the way, coal is dead and should be phased out like most civilized countries have done or will be doing in the very near future. Washington Pos

Drain the swamp” was a refrain of Donald Trump during the presidential campaign, but Newt Gingrich says the president-elect “doesn’t want to use it anymore” now that he’s knee-deep in alligators.

Economic Crisis Housing Crunch

Having read dozens of articles and talked to people about what they thought I came across this article that summed up what happened during the 2008 Housing Crunch. What I enjoy about this article is that it shows why it happened, the events that led up to the collapse, but more importantly demonstrates that it was the fault of everyone, and not one individual or party. Interesting read.  http://www.factcheck.org/2008/10/who-caused-the-economic-crisis/

The MoveOn.org Political Action ad blames a banking deregulation bill sponsored by former Sen. Phil Gramm, a friend and one-time adviser to McCain’s campaign. It claims the bill “stripped safeguards that would have protected us.”

That claim is bunk. When we contacted MoveOn.org spokesman Trevor Fitzgibbons to ask just what “safeguards” the ad was talking about, he came up with not one single example. The only support offered for the ad’s claim is one line in one newspaper article that reported the bill “is now being blamed” for the crisis, without saying who is doing the blaming or on what grounds.

The bill in question is the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, which was passed in 1999 and repealed portions of the Glass-Steagall Act, a piece of legislation from the era of the Great Depression that imposed a number of regulations on financial institutions. It’s true that Gramm authored the act, but what became law was a widely accepted bipartisan compromise. The measure passed the House 362 – 57, with 155 Democrats voting for the bill. The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 90 – 8. Among the Democrats voting for the bill: Obama’s running mate, Joe Biden. The bill was signed into law by President Clinton, a Democrat. If this bill really had “stripped the safeguards that would have protected us,” then both parties share the blame, not just “John McCain’s friend.”

To Whom It May Concern

To Whom It May Concern:

We could not ask for better neighbors, Kasia and Nicolas. We have been friends the first time that we met three years ago. The two of them and there dog Chloe have become very good friends of ours. Nicolas now works with me at the Hospital. Kasia and me share conversation and recipes, since we both love cooking. Nicolas and Vasco enjoy working on their cars which always seem to be broken.

During the summer all the neighbors share time together in the backyard cookouts, with music and fun. Kasia and Nicolas are always in the middle, always want to help cleaning up or preparing food.

We both love Kasia and Nicolas, they are both very loving and caring couple and only wish them both well.

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. R

Enforcing The Logan Act

File charges against the 47 U.S. Senators in violation of The Logan Act in attempting to undermine a nuclear agreement.

On March 9th, 2015, forty-seven United States Senators committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments. Violation of the Logan Act is a felony, punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years.

At a time when the United States government is attempting to reach a potential nuclear agreement with the Iranian government, 47 Senators saw fit to instead issue a condescending letter to the Iranian government stating that any agreement brokered by our President would not be upheld once the president leaves office.

This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, these 47 senators have committed treason. Source

My Clients Are Even More Happy Now

On January 1st of 2015 a new service was added to Pigments Painting that has yielded fantastic results for my clients, and has saved hours of time, fuel, and reduced paperwork. The use of online invoicing is nothing new, but when its combined with a 10 percent discount for using the service, my customers have all jumped on board.

Simple Clear Policy

Clear and easy policy makes paying for my exceptional painting service a total joy. The nice thing about it is you don’t need a PayPal account, although I recommend signing up for one. On large jobs I can set up a weekly payment invoice that will be itemized for simplicity. I also keep detail records that can be send at the end of a project in PDF format for your records.

If you decide to pay for the invoice online or on your smartphone, the invoice will automatically reflect a 10 percent discount. At this time payments by check will not reflect the additional discount but show the actual contract amount, but I will be offering discounts in the future. Also you can check for my current specials…

It’s so funny, now my customers are even more happy because they save time, no more looking for credit cards, checkbooks. Just a simple email with an invoice that you can pay online or on your phone. Secure, safe, fast. and free.

Thank You for making 2014 such a fantastic year and making 2015 even more enjoyable.

Sincerely,

Nicolas Ray of Pigments Painting
