Thanks for the expected information. I wonder if the person announcing needs funding? I shouldn't be so cynical I suppose.

Trump follows the law? Then why so many legal actions?
Because there are no laws to prevent the filing of 'legal actions' that have little or no chance of prevailing, and scum bag attorneys are more than happy to take large sums of money from stupid people trying to prove a point......repeatedly.

I thought he filed most of them ... guess that says a lot about his ability to learn. ;)

So the republicams are going to limit the amount you can put into your 501 .......don't think so mate there just as guilty as the so called Liberals you refer to .

I think you have confused a 501(c)3 with a 401(k).

501(c)3 is a charity.
401(k) is a retirement plan.

Umm yes the 401

But no matter the same thing applies to both the 501 and 401 , only don't they call it "philanthropy" when put into the 501 .

MM 401 retirement is ok but 501 charity is not mmm ok got it .

Waiting for the back flip now I pointed that out :-)

A 401(k) is like a bank account, in fact it could be one.
A 501(c)3 is a business. To the point it hires people and pays salary, has articles of incorporation, a mission statement. Like The American Cancer Society. or SETI @ Home

I got a call from a friend in Washington who knows more about political polling than anyone in America. He was almost breathless with excitement.

“It’s gonna be a landslide,” he said.

We care about the "why".

Ask Ben Franklin. He had patents put into the constitution.
<ed>It really is the patent on the auto-injector. Many companies make the drug. Only one company has the patent on the auto-injector. Any other company has to build a different one and get it approved. Or wait the 17 years the patent runs before they can rip it off.

Trump is a business man. He's not exactly what I want to see in the white house, but at least he's not another absolutely corrupt politician

Guy you are correct he is not a corrupt politician, he is a corrupt business man with a long history of not honoring the contracts he has signed.

Yes, and he opens his businesses where he can pay his workers $2.13/hr and get away with it. And he says it isn't going up! It is how he made his billions, stealing form the American worker. It is his vision of making America Great Again! Wage Theft!

So you know the employee can end up paying the employers share of FICA taxes on tips. https://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc761.html When that happens the employee gets no take home pay. Zero!

That's what the map shows. Where the minimum wage is $2.13/hr. https://www.dol.gov/whd/state/tipped.htm
@Guy, just because someone used a government product to illustrate some theory does not make the government product tainted.

I can just see how much in food stamps, school lunches, section 8 and other programs go into such places because it is impossible for a single mom to provide for her family at $2.13/hr while she pays the employers share of her FICA tax. Where is the dad? Maybe he got a DWP.

Oh, and that $2.13/hr is set by those super liberal congress people in Washington DC. You know the ones who had control of both chambers and the white house a couple years back. Yep $2.13/hr! They want people on welfare or they would raise the minimum to where a job would let you pay for your own food and shelter.

For those republicans out there, a worker who can pay for his own stuff is a happy more productive worker, who will add to your bottom line compared to a worker on the dole who will be depressed. But there are a lot of people out there who will spite their own nose for short term gain.

Apologies, had to drop by quickly for an esoteric/inside joke...

So EpiPens went from 100 bucks to 600 bucks in less than a decade and unsurprisingly the daughter of the Governor of West Virginia had her salary raised accordingly seeing as she's the CEO and all...

Ain't monopolies brilliant?

Gotta hand it to the Netherlands too (credit where credit's due - they may not be Luxemburg but they're trying hard as hell) without whose tax wizardry none of this would have been possible :)

Now where's Michiel when I need him?

;)

Ever heard of adrenaclick?

The issue isn't the drug, it is the damn patent for the auto-injector.

Gary, how has that table mislead me? And, no I'm not a member of that extremist group. I don't know why you (and others) keep trying to place me in that group (and other similar groups.)

Because you espouse views that are so similar on many subjects as to make people think their views on other things are your views.

And, you're confusing raising the tax rate and paying more in taxes--these are not the same thing in this context.

No confusion here, perhaps you have some. Raise revenue is raise revenue, method does not matter to the bottom line. Money is fungible. And the context is inflation.

And as for your blue/green/purple picture of the states, all you're doing for me is pointing out another weak argument about racism in the U.S. and it's insulting to people like me.

Do tell where you see race in that map or its data? Bonus if you can get ES to agree it is there!

All you're pointing out to me is that some states encourage laziness in the food services industry.

Obvious you have no clue about working in that industry, the only industry left in America after Drumpf has outsourced all the manufacturing jobs. Oh here is a tip for you don't look into the pool, that is where you find lazy.

Are you going to "tip" others on what you're trying to say with that picture?

That Mr. Drumpf likes to build his properties in states that share something in common. Also that he has commented upon that common factor in his candidacy.

The safety bar is actually a ROPS frame. A folding safety frame which is a legal requirement in the UK, so the bucket would have had no problem fitting over it (as it could be unlocked & folded down) onto the higher deck on the low loader.

Fold? I guess they want them to fail when they roll. Here I'd expect a full cage anyway to give flying/dropped materials protection as well.

Guy, your table is misleading and it has mislead you.

As to federal thoughts are you a sovereign citizen?

I think bobby knows what the map depicts.

Inflation is what artificially drives up the price of goods and services. Inflation is caused by tax rates being too low. So if you don't like prices going up, raise taxes. Oh, if you pay more, don't taxes go up?

Ooops...revised opinion.

Dumper truck couldn't be at headwall due to it being a low loader trailer. Still, the digger's shovel should have been placed on the higher deck which would have provided a much lower profile & bridge would not have been hit.


Hummmmmmm looking at other dumpers it looks like they have a safety bar for the operator. (Now under the bridge) If this one did, then I don't think the digger arm would have fit over it and been any lower. In that case should have been two loads.

However a little rotation of the bucket and it looks like the arm could have been dropped a bit. Perhaps this is why. Or perhaps the bucket should have been detached from the arm getting an even lower set. If the driver isn't qualified on the equipment he is transporting he might not know how stow it.

The Drumpf Map?

Purple states understand what Drumpf would do.
The Green states have a number of people who get it.
The Blue states have no clue.

From a quick look, with two exceptions - golf course in Los Angeles and a hotel in Las Vegas, every one of the Drumpf businesses is in a green or blue state!

I let what the map actually is sit for a while but lets see if anyone gets it.
Drumpf wrote:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump came out swinging in Tuesday’s presidential debate, starting the night by telling the audience that he could not, in good conscience, advocate raising the minimum wage.

I'll bite kong

Martin Luther king . He was around at the same time the Reds where under the beds .

And who is it that brings the type of laws he was fighting to repeal mmmm

Wouldn't be the Rich white American Republican types would it ?????

No, it was the Rich white American DixieCrats, or Southern Democrats of his time period.

Glenn, you may have missed where the KKK switched from the Democrats to the Republicans. They own no allegiance to either and will go anyplace that will allow them to spew their vile hate filled white supremacist claptrap.

This switch came after Dr. King, when the powers in the Democratic party decided enough was enough and kicked them out. For a couple of decades they really had no place that would take them. However the Republicans became very weak and finally allowed them in for all the $$$$$ they donated. A deal with the devil. And it continues to weaken the republicans. Soon there will be contests in states, such as for U.S. Senator, where they will be no republican qualified to appear on the ballot. Oh wait, that's already happened! http://www.cbsnews.com/news/california-senate-race-sets-up-first-ever-democrat-on-democrat-battle/

btw. CIA thinks US laws applies in Sweden.
They don't!!!!

US laws apply everywhere to US citizens. See all the idiots going on sex tours to Thailand for underage prostitutes who get back to the USA and get long prison terms and put on sex offender registries.

I assume Sweden's laws apply to their citizens everywhere too.
