  1. Evidently not. Your power has been out since mine was last.
  2. To be honest, I don't give a fig how California chooses to govern itself. I don't have a vote there, don't pay taxes there. Just wish their residents would quit moving here and driving our property values and taxes up. They can be as socialist as they want to be as long as I am not paying for it.
  3. I guess she will have to rely on private charter aircraft and/or get an apartment in Juneau. No sympathy from me.
  4. And why do we give a rat's backside about Rose McGowan's political opinions and affiliations?
  5. It is insanity. Now I have a healthy skepticism about many medications and side effects. But it blows my mind that people are taking animal pharmaceuticals as an alternative.
  6. Not a fan of the heartbeat bill, in particular the lack of provision for rape and incest victims. I am not clear on the law re a non viable pregnancy that doesn’t threaten the mother’s health. But they won’t have much luck in Mexico. They have very restrictive abortion laws and many Mexican women came here to get one. It is a Roman Catholic country, for the most part.
  7. It is the state taxes that are really impacting this lowest group. Gas tax, property taxes, sales taxes. Stuff like that. And the lower your. income, the higher your taxes as a portion of your income. This is why I have opposed crap like gas tax increases. Fortunately live in a state where necessities like groceries are free of sales taxes.
  8. I'm not sure it is fair to compare high tax states' residents' taxes to make a point re federal policy.
  9. For real? From what I understand from other articles, the guy knew he was sick and still came to work. He knew that school had a mask mandate, but chose to read aloud to the class unmasked. I would say that his poor choices impacted a lot of families. Also interesting. to note that this was California, not Texas or Florida.
  10. That top 1% pay something like 40% of all income taxes collected in the U.S.
  11. Awful. A teacher infected a full half of his class of elementary students along with a number of parents. https://news.yahoo.com/unvaccinated-unmasked-elementary-school-teacher-155943932.html
  12. Boomers are a larger portion of the population than gen x. Then you have issues such as culture of saving vs consumption, stuff like that. I don’t think that chart says much.
  13. I have no idea what point is trying to be made, only that it makes sense that the longer you work and save, advance in your career, the more wealth you can have. We all started out broke, or at least most of us did.
  14. Makes sense. The longer you work and build wealth, the more you have. We really didn’t have much savings until our kids were raised.
