the first year would be the hardest - the initial cataloguing

I don't follow, here. The corporation would still be taxed on its holdings, and the shareholders would still taxed on their respective share prices.

Re: POG Politics Thread

For fun I watched that superbowl video. Looks like the 2nd girl they say was actually a victim is nearsighted in the superbowl pic, but very farsighted in the picture of the actual victim.

Re: POG Politics Thread

Can't quote from the old politics thread. I guess that's a good thing.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. I sent an email to my fine senator bemoaning his and the Republican party's refusal to do anything about the biggest problems in our country, specifically healthcare, gun violence, and our president.

He sent me a very nice long reply letting me know how great the tax cut bill was. He must have missed the parts of my original email where I didn't mention this, like all of them.

you should try writing to whoever his opponent is in 2018 or 2020 and see what kind of response you get, then possibly base your vote on said responses.

My current conspiracy theory is that Luckbox is just doing a test to see how long he can get people to respond to him if he keeps being a conspiracy theorist.

I'm just saying Luckbox started this thread with a winky face emoji.

But I guess the heart of being a conspiracy theorist, is that believing the conspiracy is just less upsetting than believing the truth.

Or not

The heart of being a conspiracy theorist is using inductive logic to derive at the truth. It isn't less upsetting than the truth. It is the truth.

It's the media created bubbles that we live in which shield us from the truth and stripping those away is where the upsetting happens.

Ftr most of what you do in this thread is either 1) acknowledge me or 2) post about Mitch McConnell.

I do not however need your acknowledgement although Mitch might.

Mitt Romney might actually be the best we can hope for in Utah.
