    Speaking of dash cams, am I missing something because it seems half the driving population now seems to have one? Do they go home at night and re-watch all the green lights they made on the way home from work?

    East,

    The left loves to shout about “loopholes” but the tax code is written and passed by Congress, Ways and means Committee, and don’t think for a second that the tax code isn’t massaged to assist those who help out both parties, not just evil Republicans.

    Tax accountants are paid to have their clients pay the lowest possible tax, so whining about loopholes is nonsensical. The fallacy of the Buffet rule, and one that the low information voters embrace, is that capital gains taxes are and should be taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income , so Warren’s salaried secretary who makes a very good income, could easily pay a higher rate than her capital gains reaping boss. Higher rate, NOT higher net tax.

    Why, many Libs ask, should cap gains be taxed a lower rate (“You know it just gives a break to rich people”) Simple: the money I or anyone else has to invest and thus reap cap gains HAS ALREADY BEEN TAXED at the rate of ordinary income first; and I’m willing to risk my capital by investing in businesses or municipalities who then do silly things like pay for new machinery, hire employees, build schools, water treatment plants, loan money for new business, homes, etc.

    The Left will never admit that capitalism is the engine of freedom and those who earn, invest and spend are the people who pay for everything the Left says should be “free” to those who don’t.

    Maybe he can also explain why if gravity can effect light as in a black hole and would thus seem to indicate that light was more that mass-less energy, why I don’t feel a recoil when I turn on my handheld 10 million candle-power spot light.

    Every time they show any Dem on TV the station should be required to play the “Just Look for the Union Label” song in the background just to make things clear.

    H Reid cares little for the fact that the demon Koch brothers are way down the donor list after many lib conributors. “Truth? Nah, don’t need it, wouldn’t know what it was if I heard it.”

    The big question is still, if I’m driving at the speed of light and I turn my headlights on, will the light leave the front of the car at the speed of light plus the speed of light or will it: A) spill back into the windshield like fluid from the windshield washers: B) just sit inside the dark fixtures and be invisible; C) turn my car into a Way-Back Machine?

    “Public” means:

    -Illegal aliens are free to pass through unmolested while protected by the gov’t.
    -Occupy WS types can camp indefinitely at taxpayer expense
    -Demonstrations against freedom and freedom of assembly can proceed unhindered
    -1st amendment rights can be curtailed by decree
    -only anti-Christian symbols and activities will be sanctioned
    -citizens are under constant scrutiny and threat of armed intervention if they behave like free men
    -$333.33 to move 1 cow is a reasonable expense to be borne by the taxpayers
    -members of the tax paying public are trespassers and will be dealt with accordingly

    Gregg, that’s the way Muslims get their way…everything upsets them and we can’t have that. As Americans we have a right to be free of anything that may cause us discomfort or force us to use our brains.

    Were the kids forced to go to the church for the event? NO, they were invited and if their parents weren’t consumed by their bigotry and fear the proper response would have been at worst to ignore it and at best, as a mature parent would have advised, to politely decline.

    Oh no, it was upsetting, it was traumatic, it was unconstitutional! Get a grip on the world and your lack of functioning as the center of it.

    Someone made a good point on Fox News the other night: name one right enumerated in The Bill of Rights that the Libs have supported or made any effort to protect when it wasn’t solely in their favor to do so while advocating the denial of that right to others.

    Too bad Putin wasn’t facing Reagan, I can hear Reagan now talking about the “angry little man running Russia” and then making sure Putin understood that he wasn’t dealing with a US president who wears mom jeans and rides a girl’s bicycle.

    Ego.

    Like the Congressional Black Caucus where you just need to make sure you’re the proper shade of black to be included? You ignore the rhetoric these groups dish out about inclusiveness when in reality they’re highly exclusive and dissenting opinions are not only forbidden but mortally feared lest some less-than-rabid member have an independent thought.

    Liberalism is tyranny of thought and action, open discussion is their enemy.

    It’s lawyer speak and Libs play that game to the hilt. Is-is, inappropriate criteria, etc. they think its not lying and have convinced themselves that they’re just being “precise” in a court room sense.

    That’s why guys like Trey Gowdy are so refreshing to watch, as a former prosecutor he sees their tactics and forces them to give real answers while the Dems set up questions for evasive answers which they then call the truth.

    When the herd feels threatened, the members close ranks to ward off the perceived threat…works for bison and musk ox, so it should definitely work for this species.

    So Obama has a brother in Malaysia running this show? The prime minister is on par with BHO for issuing erroneous, incomplete and misleading statements. At the first sign of debris, he could say ‘without a doubt’ that the plane went down in the Indian Ocean…at least that’s what he emailed to the relatives. Class act.

    I also think the plane is on the ground someplace, way too many places within range where it could have landed.

    What movies have you been watching lately? The SAS is about as good as special forces get; apparently the Brit sniper training isn’t bad either.

    Perhaps you’re thinking about the guys with the bear skin hats are all the military the UK has.

    Public figures cannot sue for slander, they just have to put up with it and/or refute it. Too bad that the same morons who believe everything they hear on NPR will never hear anything Rush says to the contrary.

    Maybe they could get a discount if they bought just the back end

    Not the same as the WW2 trainer, note the name is “Texan II” This one is a Beechcraft 2 seat turbo-prop sold around the world as a trainer.

    I think the issue is, “yes those are interesting, fun” vs “wow, those are incredible, stupendous, breathtaking”.

    It’s a matter of degree which as it reaches excess becomes the issue.

    I spent 30 years in and around the fine arts world and I can say unequivocally that 80% of the time, it’s the BS that the artist cranks out to “explain” what you’re supposed to be looking at that sells, not what you’re actually looking at.

    The oh so hip art elite can then have their “isn’t her new work fabulous” conversations at the next gallery opening. If this woman spent the money to buy the back cover of ‘Art in America’ for 3 months in a row she’d be a sensation; people who had no clue could then replace name recognition with the expectation of talent. “Oh, yes, I’ve heard of her!” is all it takes because they forget that promotion trumps talent most of the time.

    After that it’s keeping up with the Jones’es on the part of collectors until the next flash in the pan comes along.

    I read her say it’s different, not harder or more stressful, just different from a fixed routine.

    Without hearing the whole “E” interview any other conclusions or inferences are conjecture, so take a break. Apple? Well,there is that.
