  1. His point is that the basis step-up is the opposite of a death tax. It's a death windfall.
  2. We'd need to know the context of the Biden quote to know if that's a contradiction. His "you" could be an individual, a couple, or a family.
  3. And it looks like it would be a 2.6 % marginal increase on dollars earned above $400,000. Meaning a couple earning $400k sees no increase. A couple earning $500k sees an increase of $2600. Hardly a war on the middle class.
  4. People are definitely hypocritical on this and many other issues. High cash bail is absurd. Crowdfunding bail and legal fees is fine, as long as the lawyers are serving the defendant, and not whoever is paying. And crowdfunding legal fees is fraught with abuse by opportunists. I haven't really considered the issue of big tech "deplatforming" funds for controversial groups. That's a puzzler.
  5. I was responding to claims that lawmakers decriminalized auto theft/theft from autos/carjacking. So yeah, I was hoping for a copy of a law. That's what decriminalization means.
  6. I'm not familiar with that video. While thus far no one has shown any examples of politicians decriminalizing auto theft, it is worth mentioning that high speed chases are frowned upon these days, so that could explain why the police aren't being more aggressive.
  7. Again, they didn't decriminalize theft, they created a diversion program within the CT juvenile courts to allow kids to complete a program and avoid a conviction. And according to your article, the rate of stealing from cars in CT decreased after the change. I won't deny it's a big problem in Connecticut right now. Those same gangs of Connecticut kids have been stealing in my Rhode Island town and surrounding areas. Exact pattern you described.
  8. First of all, I thought we were talking about stealing cars, not stealing stuff from cars. Second, that California law only adds an element to the California crime of "auto burglary, " it doesn't decriminalize theft of cars or theft from cars. It may be true that certain thefts are classified as misdemeanors based on the value of whatever was stolen, but every state, including Connecticut, uses dollar value to distinguish misdemeanors and various levels of felonies.
  9. Do you have any support for the idea that "Politicians have decriminalized car theft? " Because I'm pretty sure that isn't true.
  10. I'd guess no as to lawbreaking, since it's all fiction, and that law enforcement already knows who the main people are. EDIT - I took your question to mean the character/message board poster(s) "Qanon" rather than Qanon believers. Plenty of believers have committed plenty of crimes.
  11. To be fair, the ultra-rich already decide where Government money is spent.
  12. In college I had a conversation with a friend about the NBA playoff format. I grew up with a 2-2-1-1-1 format for 7 game series, and 2-2-1 for 5 game series. They were going to change it to 2-3-2 that year, and I was strongly against that. I thought it was unfair that the lower seeded team could have a chance to win in 5 games with more home games than the higher seed. My friend didn't see the problem. Debate ensued. I argued that ideally all series would be 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. It seemed fundamentally undeniable to me that this was fairest. I was dumbfounded that he could disagree with this f
  13. That doesn't seem entirely fair. Most of the posts in this thread have opposed or supported for substantive reasons. Sure, the opinions are mostly divided along "team" lines, but I think in this instance that's because tax policy is one of the main differences between the teams.
  14. Kids love malls because they don't have houses and can't go to bars. But malls are dying/have died because kids don't have money and adults don't go.
  15. A picture of pizza would have meant Gamestop is getting into child sex trafficking, but softserve just means BUY.
  16. Can someone explain to me why my fundamental concern about SPACs is incorrect? I admit I am a total newb but here goes: SPAC gets listed for $10. You get in somewhat early for $10.50. Rumors start flying that SPAC is going to acquire XYZ. XYZ looks like a good company and is in a hot sector so SPAC rises to $15. Then for a while rumors continue and people debate the merits of XYZ and SPAC numbers go up or down. Then at some point a deal becomes more likely and again the price rises or falls based on what the market thinks of XYZ. But what never seems to be discussed until it's an afterth
  17. See, even the underwear part of Gamestock's business model is outdated.
  18. The idea that Gamestop just needs to retool and relaunch as something new seems alot like 1. Take underpants 2. ?? 3. Profit Sure, they have a database of customers, but it's largely outdated, and Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Twitch, EA, Ubisoft, Rockstar etc, all have better current lists and direct daily relationships with their customers.
  19. The default is daylong, but you can set limit orders as instant, daylong, or open until filled (or canceled). So if I have a current, good until filled order to sell XYZ at $10,I'm wondering what happens if someone bids $10 after hours.
  20. OK, another fidelity /trading question. If I have extended hours trading enabled, will it execute my standing limit orders? Or do I have to re-enter the orders as extended hour orders? Thanks, and sorry. I haven't found the answer looking myself.
  21. You just update the watch lists whenever you trade? I could do that. But there should be a way to tag a position to have it auto-populate to a watchlist.
  22. is there a way on fidelity to divide my positions page into a few different pages? Like having all my long-term holds on one page, "trading" stocks on another, SPACs on a third?
  23. Sold all SPACS that were above 11 and still green for me overall. I wanted cash and will reevaluate after things settle down. HAACU, JOFFU, CBUHU, CBAHW Kept those under 11, as they don't have much more downside potential, at least pre-announcement. Out of all my positions, I don't have much up overall anymore. Really only the bluechips.
