Life Without Social Networking

In retrospect, I managed to survive more than the first 60 years of my life without Facebook. To date, I’ve sent one text in my entire life. I don’t tweet, snapchat, or instagram, and I’ve yet to feel the need to take a picture of myself. My phone flips and I only carry it while I’m working. I’ve been spending a lot of time watching videos of old songs I remembered from my wasted youth on YouTube and commenting on sports blogs. I even learned how to fillet a catfish.

Trump plan promises huge tax cuts, but big questions remain
Trump declared repeatedly the plan would provide badly needed tax relief for the middle class. But there are too many gaps in the proposal to know how it actually would affect individual taxpayers and families, how it would be paid for and how much it might add to the soaring $20 trillion national debt.

WHY IS IT WHEN A REPUBLICAN PROPOSES CUTTING TAXES THE LEFT SCREAMS: “HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR IT??” YET, WHEN THEY SHOVE TAX INCREASES DOWN THE MIDDLE CLASS’S THROATS, THEY NEVER ASK HOW THE PEOPLE WILL PAY FOR IT?

[CtH: They also never factor in how much increased business and more jobs stimulated by the cuts will increase tax income.]

Trump tax plan eliminates big perk for high-tax states

President Trump will release a sweeping plan Wednesday to cut taxes and simplify the tax code that will eliminate the deduction for state and local taxes — a move that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has warned would be a “death blow” for New York.

[CtH: Cuomo and his Democrat cronies have been trying to kill New York for decades. And since when do Democrats care about rich people?  Aren’t the rich not supposed to get deductions in their world, cuz it’s not FAIR … or something?]

Repealing it would increase federal revenue by $1.3 trillion over the decade, according to the Tax Policy Center.  But it would also slam high-income New Yorkers.  Manhattan leads the way nationally in taking the deduction, with residents writing off an average of $24,898 on their federal returns.  Deductions would remain for mortgage interest and charitable contributions. Also, the standard deduction would nearly double to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for married couples.

Trump: ‘Democrats Don’t Want Massive Tax Cuts’
While some Democrats are already working with the president, a coalition of roughly 45 Democrats in the Senate, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, could give the administration trouble going forward. This group has promised to reject any bill that cuts taxes on the wealthy.

[CtH: So they’re against increasing taxes on wealthy New Yorkers AND decreasing taxes on wealthy Americans? Oooookay.]

Michelle Obama: Women Who Didn’t Vote for Hillary Clinton ‘Voted Against Their Own Voice’
She continued, “It doesn’t say as much about Hillary and everybody is trying to wonder, ‘Well what does it mean for Hillary?’ Well no, what does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates and many of us said, ‘That guy? He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ Well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice. You like the thing we’re told to like—the voice we are told we are supposed to like. You bought into that.”

[Cth: Pardon my French, but … bullshit.  You don’t know diddly DAMN about my “voice.”]

Chuck Todd: Roy Moore ‘Doesn’t Appear to Believe in the Constitution as It’s Written’

For any non-revisionist individual who’s read the Constitution or commentaries on it, they would know that Todd’s slam against Moore is pure and utter fake news. Why? It’s because the Constitution ensures that our God-given rights aren’t hinged upon by the government.

Jane Fonda Snaps at Megyn Kelly for Asking Plastic Surgery Question

“You’ve been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically,” Kelly told Fonda.

She should have stopped there, but Kelly continued, “You admit you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit, but you look amazing… I read that you said that you felt you’re not proud to admit that you’ve had work done. Why not?”

“We really want to talk about that now?” Fonda sniped, looking genuinely perplexed.

[CtH: Well, yes, actually.  Especially, given that you’ve made a ton of money off your health & fitness products!]

Maxine Waters: Black women can get Trump out of office
“Black women, because we have evolved with strength and voting power and economic power, this is a special moment in the history of black women,” Waters told The Root.

[CtH: Maxine, Democrats do NOTHING for blacks.  Every important initiative I’ve ever heard of was proposed by Republicans, opposed by Democrats, and voted in by a Republican majority.]

    The Democrats’ Gerrymandering Gambit

    Their push for a Supreme Court ruling on voting districts isn’t really about fair elections.
    Their target is Justice Anthony Kennedy who, they hope, will side with the Supreme Court’s Obama and Clinton appointees in a forthcoming case challenging the way the lines were drawn in Wisconsin because the Republicans are allegedly over-represented in the state legislature when compared with the total number of votes they received in the last election.

    Chelsea’s ‘Best Friend’ Wins $11 Mil In Defense Contracts With No Clearance

    A company whose president is “best friends” with Chelsea Clinton received more than $11 million in contracts over the last decade from a highly secretive Department of Defense think tank, but to date, the group lacks official federal approval to handle classified materials, according to sensitive documents TheDCNF was allowed to review.

    Jacqueline Newmyer, the president of a company called the Long Term Strategy Group, has over the last 10 years received numerous Defense Department contracts from a secretive think tank called Office of Net Assessment.

    Report: Trump ‘Deeply Worried’ His Cave on DACA Amnesty ‘Endangers’ Standing with Base

    SOMEONE IS GIVING HIM VERY BAD ADVICE
    President Donald Trump is “deeply worried” that his alleged cave on giving permanent amnesty to illegal aliens shielded by an Obama-era temporary amnesty program “endangers” his standing with his populist-nationalist base of supporters, according to a New York Times report.

    Steve Scalise Makes Triumphant Return to the House: Because of God, I Am a Living Miracle

    Aided by a set of crutches, Scalise made his way to the center of the chamber, receiving hugs and high fives along the way, to tell his story.

    “It starts with God,” Scalise said. “When I was laying out on the ball field, the first thing I did when I was down and couldn’t move anymore, was pray. It gave me an unbelievable sense of calm.”

    I just wrote a snippy complaint to Facebook for banning you, Pete. I think it’s outrageous. If some butthead wants to block you from his own Timeline or a group he administrates, fine. But depriving all of your many friends and fans of interacting with you is a bridge way too far.
