And why would I want to attend one of her concerts?
And by the way.... Get off my lawn!
Live365 was far and away my favorite service. Eclectic stations programmed by individuals. Alas, the massive increase in licensing feeds killed it back in January.
I have no vote. Both Hillary and The Donald are absolutely unacceptable. I will not vote for either of them under any circumstances.
Since I live in Calipornia, where Hillary is guaranteed 65%+ of the vote even if she spends the rest of the campaign holding Black Masses and sacrificing toddlers to Molech on the steps of the Capitol building, who I vote for is quite irrelevant anyway.
That was just an example.
As far as I know, there isn't a way to "get out of paying taxes" that results in you keeping the money you would have paid in taxes. Generally, it costs more than the taxes you get out of.
Taxes are not an end in themselves. Taxes are taken to fund things that are considered to be social goods.
Deductions are allowed for money spent on some things that are considered a social good, such as various charities. They tend to accomplish things that otherwise the government would have to, and they do it for far more good accomplished per dollar than the government does. So the total social good accomplished per dollar is higher than if it the money were taxed and used to pay for that social good, minus the overhead of a whole lot of government bureaucracy.
Some people make the argument that private charities are a bad thing, and all should be done by government alone. If that's your position, I have nothing to say to you.
There's no way to tell without examining exactly why those households paid no tax on their income.
Was it because their income was all from tax-free municipal bonds? They are, in a sense, getting taxed, because those bonds have a lower yield than taxable bonds. Plus, it's an incentive to provide cities with money at lower interest rates.
Was it because they gave their entire >$1M income that year to a bunch of homeless shelters?
Details are important.
Well that's the last I ever saw of my murderous little toy
It might be dead but I hope it's not, 'cause it filled me full of joy
They say it reached the Bering Strait, and crossed the icy floes
The Russian Army ain't killed it yet, but it keeps them on their toes
It went ZAP! when it fired; it cursed when it missed
And whirred as it took aim
It didn't know if we were friend or foe
It attacked us just the same
It also would require changing the Constitution. Which no one has made any serious attempt to do.
Or, just ignore the Bill of Rights entirely, which is done every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
How many people have the supremely disgusting Westboro cultists actually murdered? An actual number with references, please.
I mean, Fred Phelps bodaciously deserves to be deep-fat-frying in Hell for all eternity, but has his evil cult actually committed any murders?
Let's keep a bit of perspective here.
Or have you never heard "Imagine" by John Lennon?
Yeah. Heard it. A hymn to Marxism, as defined by Marxism's press releases. Somehow, this bears little resemblance to the megadeathtoll that Marxism has produced in the real world.
