    Special Council Muller Report

    According to you and others, his advisors kept him from obstructing justice. You said Trump wanted to commit obstruction. This would have been to cover up a crime he knew he didn’t commit. His advisors told him not to fire those he wanted to fire, and he followed their advice. I’ll add to that, Trump never invoked executive privilege. Mueller’s team interviewed whoever they wanted. By what delusional logic does that equal the crime of obstruction of justice?

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    We pretty much always have a balance. I have my whole adult life. Our credit is excellent, so the interest rate is low, or we use a card that gives us 0% for 12-18 months. We also accrue points for airline tickets. We probably overspend on travel, eating out, concerts and sporting events. At the same time, keep our same cell phones until they actually die, have modest cars we keep for a long time. I try to balance between spending and saving wisely and the philosophy that you only live once. May or may not be the wisest way to go about it. The point is many people do willingly carry credit card balances. A simpler way to see that is to go to Best Buy on Black Friday and watch throngs of folks spend hundreds of dollars on their very high interest Best Buy card.

    Nope. You are wrong. I read it. “The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act dropped the corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent, while also keeping intact most of the tax breaks that allow profitable companies to zero out what they owe.”
  5. Or, we could wait five years until there is a Republican President we despise, and blame him.
  6. I agree. Lots of interesting reading in this old thread. I noticed no one, except for one mild comment by a poster no longer here,seemed to disagree with this statement. Some did rightfully criticize the Republicans for not funding similar border security that Trump is asking for. Further proof of obstructionism against the Trump administration.
  7. I guess that didn’t work out. Except that five years later, we can blame Trump for it all.

    Special Council Muller Report

    That is a irrelevant question, and a transparent attempt at deflection. Russia interference? That wasn’t what the talk in the various threads here was. The thread started before the Mueller investigation titled (paraphrased) “Senate intelligence to investigate Russian hacking” has 6 replies. No one cared about that. When I turned on CNN yesterday and found a panel of nine people all yammering the same tune, it wasn’t about Russia interference. Chuck and Nancy declined an invitation to view a less redacted version of the report. They said that wasn’t good enough. Does anyone think their concern is about getting to the bottom of Russian interference in our democratic process? Those who want to subpoena Mueller and Barr are doing so because they want to get to the bottom of Russian interference in our democratic process? Until the summary came out, I don’t know that you made much mention of getting to the bottom of Russian interference, except in how it related to Trump. I do know you mentioned many times the obvious evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians. Obviously, you were wrong. We all know that the Mueller investigation wasn’t about getting to the bottom of how Russia interfered with our election. its wasn’t. It was about getting Trump.

    Those loopholes that allowed that predated Trump’s tax law.

    That doesn’t really fit with Trump’s MO. I mean he fires people at the drop of the hat, right? “Handpicks” people to do his bidding. Isn’t that what you’ve been saying? It seems he could have found someone to carry out his wishes if that’s really what he wanted. Anyway, so there the fact there was nothing to obstruct. I think Trump-haters will live happier and healthier lives if they just move on. But, they won’t.

    I thought that was obvious. It was also obvious for many of us for quite sometime that Trump didnt play along. For others, they are now disappointed to now have to finally accept that reality.

    What makes you think he is going against American law? They are being detained while due process is carried out. https://www.npr.org/2019/04/17/714381003/ag-barr-orders-immigration-judges-to-stop-releasing-asylum-seekers-out-on-bail

    I'm confused as to why your are deflecting to the issue of our broken asylum system in the Mueller Report thread, on today of all days. Is that what the WaPo and NYT are moving on to already?

    Speaking of taxes, I just filed mine this week. Our household income over the year was slightly lower, about 4% (due to a illness in the family). Our federal tax bill was $3000 less.

    It's unclear if you are talking about the folks who are getting a smaller refund because they didn't have as much taken out in the first place, and actually have net more take home pay? Or, is the people who don't pay any or a minimal amount of income tax and are not getting as big a income distribution check, I mean refund check, as before?
