IRS

I sent off my third quarter estimated taxes to the IRS and State Tax and Revenue department today.  Bobbi and I pay a lot of taxes because we have good retirement income, no debt and no rental properties.  And so we pay.

I am willing to bet that we pay more taxes than Donald Trump, who says he is a billionaire.  Even Trump's supporters pay more taxes than their exalted and most likely insane candidate.  They are the quintessential suckers.  Everyone of them.

Sooner or later we will find out about Trumps taxes and charitable contributions.  But most likely it will be after the election.  He needs to hide that information for as long as possible.

Trump supporters are suckers but the reason working class people pay more in taxes than rich people isn't Trump but Democrats like the Clintons. Are you saying Clinton supporters are either suckers or members of the 1 percent?

Have you checked in on the Middle East lately? Things are escalating by the day. A million or maybe two dead already and now China is involved, joining US, Russia and the rest of the nuclear powers. The US is pumping arms in there as fast as they can while Hillary and her Neocon friends, who started the whole mess, are agitating for even more war. The big arms company CEOs are telling their stockholders things will be great when Hillary is in charge of the US military.

Michelle Bachmann might be right. Today she said if Hillary is elected it'll be the last election. But maybe she was talking about white people being in charge of everything and not about the nuclear powers being engulfed in a global war and her and her husband and the rest of us being walking smoking mummies.

Hey, I turned off on Hilary when she voted for the Iraq war. But I am not stupid enough to vote for Trump or Johnson.
All we can hope for is an epiphany on her part.

We are in serious trouble with either Trump or Clinton. Not sure which one is the lesser of two evils. God help us all.

That last comment about god. that is really the problem. people use their fantasy god as a go-to solution for everything. Instead of them getting off their ass.

By the way, we should be making sure our elected representatives use the power invested in them, by us, to stop the Middle East train wreck instead of meekly voting for every appropriation that's demanded of them.

I'm talking about Martin Heinrich, Tom Udall, Michelle Grisham, Ben Lujan and that other guy, what's his name? Steve Pence? Anyway, these deadbeats seem to think we sent them up there to keep a seat warm while they collect their huge salaries and juicy benefits like free health care. They never utter a word about this or anything that's truly significant like the fact that we the people are getting a smaller and smaller piece of the pie all the time, or that the conditions in Syria right now match up pretty well with the ones that preceded the previous world wars where imperial powers were basically fighting over market share. Where's the oversight?

I mean, it's nice that we have more protected lands but there's a lot more to the world than that and those don't help a family that's struggling at all. They don't even get to see those places. The only kind of cars you ever see in the parking lots of those places are things like late model Subaru station wagons of which there are zero in my neighborhood. Why isn't Heinrich making sure inner city kids are getting to see those places instead of just his environmental constituency? He could make that happen in a minute, if ever thought about it.


Sorry Jim. By the way, when you sent off your third quarter taxes did you think to send off mine?

Why are the people that comment on this site against God?

Because they don't believe in imaginary friends?

Where is it exactly? Please describe it in detail to me and cite your references. The bible doesn't count since it is a fantasy book.

You are a very very sad individual.

Actually, I think it is funny that your beliefs are based on the fantasies of illiterate desert dwellers who though the earth was flat.
