  1. I see social media posts acting like this Dr Suess book silliness is happening because Biden is President and I think some actually believe there was some kind of bill in Congress to cancel.
  2. I can tell you that my farm operation has not had a positive cash flow a few of my years farming. Pretty sure there are some farmers in Iowa that experienced that this year. Just another scenario that would likely happen this year for some. You own a chain of resturants/bars that are valued over 50 million. Going to be pretty tough to come up with the money for a 3% wealth tax when the party who owns this chain may even be looking at filing for bankruptcy this year even without this wealth tax.
  3. Ok, not trying to be at all braggadocious and obviously I do not fall in the proposed wealth bracket here but I have experienced some years on the farm with some poor yields and poor crop prices. The current assets are grain are needed to pay off loans and family living on those years. The remainder and bulk of my assets are equipment and farm land. So would how would I pay that wealth tax without selling equipment that I need to farm or some farmland?
  4. I actually prefer that taxes be based off of annual income. One can have considerable assets that depending on the year generate only breaks even On a given year. The only way one might be able to pay this type of wealth tax could force someone to sell some of those assets.
  5. I would agree we need to do something. The GOP likes to keep lowering taxes for the ultra rich even if it is already much lower than years past. As you scroll down through this article watch the graph show lower and lower taxes rates for the very wealthiest throughout the last 70 years https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/10/06/opinion/income-tax-rate-wealthy.html

  7. https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/trump-approval-ratings/ Often times some here like to remind us how 74 million voted for Trump but look at the crash that occurred after the election and sharply after January 6th. Let’s just put this idea that there are still 74 million voters that support Trump behind us once and for all. I have no idea how many would vote for him today but it’s not 74 million. I know many who were completely disgusted with Trump (including a sibling )but voted for him because he was the only pro life option. Now the GOP have many pro life options for 2024. We h
  8. Giuliani has less chance of a chance of being the GOP nominee than Rep Jerrold Nadler has of becoming the next famous supermodel. Who makes these lists? The image of him dripping hair dye is something I can’t see folks ever getting over. He would be 80 in 2024 and has all kinds of legal battles.
  9. I wonder, first saying it was a mistake to follow Trump a few weeks ago and then asking to see Trump where he said no has such a look of rejected desperation and flip flopping.
  10. It is obvious that as of today Trump is “currently “the GOP favorite 2024 nominee. Even though it’s way too early who do you think currently is the most electable Republican potential candidate that could win a National election? I don’t think it’s Trump or any of his biggest supporting enablers. In 4 years could somewhat like Sen Sasse ever be the guy? He would appeal to more independents and the Never Trump Republicans. Even though the Trump base would be angry, would they vote for Sasse instead of someone like VP Harris? I have a hard time believing that.
  11. 10 years ago I would acknowledged I thought that the gerrymandering issue was a bit overplayed by Democrats but today I see it as an important factor. In addition there are some things that Trump has done that for example labor unions that Democrats need to consider.
  12. The only thing I got out this TPAC convention was to compile a list of GOP attendees I would never vote for.
  13. Yes, first time since Herbert Hoover any President’s term saw their party experience the loss of the House, the White House and the Senate in just 4 years. The over used phrase “ definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result” is in play here.
