    Globalist shills must shill.
    Funny how patriotism and nationalism are vilified. Wouldn't it make sense to bring your own house in order before spreading your good virtues to the world, posers?:)

    But we are stuck with parasitic globalists that only want to destroy America

    The reason for that kind of policy is to target blatant tax avoidance and dodging...You know, Apple is totally based in Ireland. Not just for tax avoidance reasons.

    I am not sure why corporations even care, the vast majority pay virtually no corporate taxes anyway. Not only that, but some actually got refunds after paying no taxes.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2021/04/05/corporations-federal-taxes/

    Around 70% support higher corporate taxes. Yet another policy that the GOP is on the minority side on.

    There also needs to be an AMT on the highest earners. I am sorry but people making $10M+ a year should not have lower effective tax rates than people making $50K a year.

    He has to live rent free, because he is broke and in debt.

    Apple is structured to hold their IP and other assets in Ireland to take advantage of their low corporate tax, and Microsoft will keep all the money they earn internationally in tax-free havens while borrowing in US because of low interest rates, all international corporations will, unfortunately, do stuff like that. The lesson is simple, create an advantageous tax environment in America. The only thing gov can do to create jobs and business is to get out of the way.

    Whatever will happen to Trump, he seemed like he lived a good life and turned out to be a real patriot and exposed globalists and the party that exists off impoverishing the middle class while handing out welfare to the poorest and only serving elites.

    But go ahead and make fun of Trump's accomplishments that really bothers him:) At least he fought for something meaningful and people respected that, unselfish of someone who had it all before getting into politics.

    Seems simpler to scrap the billion pages of IRS exemptions and just start fresh with a graduated flat tax.

    Limit exemptions to avoid double, triple taxation and dependents. That would also eliminate the marriage penalty.

    Bonus, we'd save billions by eliminating most of the IRS.

    You could knock me over with a feather when I saw Kessler perform actual journalism twice in the same month.

    We finally found common ground on something. :)

    The IRS tax code is ridiculous as is. It is so complex good luck navigating it.

    I am fine with a flat tax as long as there is an AMT.

    It is not a "flat tax" when a rich person uses accounting tricks to pay a lower %.

    Quite the guy Hunter is, probably just like papa. Mainstream media buried and ignored this story leading up to the election. Whatever dems need to win I suppose. The same people gloating over Matt Gaetz's will once again ignore this story.

    Hunter has at least couple of lefty fans here. I would like to apologize in advance if this gets them hot and bothered:) my bad, try to cool your jets with a cold shower:)

    This is methed up:)

    Little known fact. Size doesn't really matter much when you are kneeling on someone's neck, especially after they are dead.

    Oh, I am sorry is Hunter Biden in Congress? He has no role in the administration whatsoever.

    Biden is not Trump. He is not filling his office with people of low character and qualifications, just because they are family.

    At this point I am sure he would get a bigger book deal than Pence. It seems like way more people are interested in his life.

    Hunter Biden living in conservative heads rent free. :)
