Oh, I'm so sorry. Had I read the Wikipedia article II'd have learned that the Oklahoma City terrorists also weren't Muslims. Too complicated, must simplify.
NEWTON, Iowa — Donald J. Trump, who earlier in the week said he was open to requiring Muslims in the United States to register in a database, said on Thursday night that he “would certainly implement that — absolutely.”
Mr. Trump was asked about the issue by an NBC News reporter and pressed on whether all Muslims in the country would be forced to register. “They have to be,” he said. “They have to be.’’
When asked how a system of registering Muslims would be carried out — whether, for instance, mosques would be where people could register — Mr. Trump said: “Different places. You sign up at different places. But it’s all about management. Our country has no management.’’
Asked later, as he signed autographs, how such a database would be different from Jews having to register in Nazi Germany, Mr. Trump repeatedly said, “You tell me,” until he stopped responding to the question.
Or perhaps you really meant that although he said it he didn't mean it. Because he's just pandering. Just a con artist. Is that what you meant? I don't want to count on his being just a con though — that's OK for a gambling casino operator, not for a POTUS.
Besides, since we're entirely talking about hypotheticals here, if Twitter were to do a Lavabit how is TheRealDonaldTrump going to get MSM to jump and report any <40 character bit of random thought as front-page news?
Don't laugh just yet my friend:
Given that you are offering $12/hr cash payment to evade taxes
Nonsense. I am paying MORE taxes. If I pay cash, then the cost of hiring that person is not a deductible expense. So I pay the taxes, not the worker. I am almost certainly in a higher bracket.
Nonsense returned: There is absolutely nothing preventing you from deducting your business expenses that are paid in cash. Of course if you aren't paying into the Social Security program for them, and you aren't paying into Unemployment Insurance, then you would not want to draw attention to your own tax evasion while encouraging theirs, hence you forego your expense deduction.
b. The workers aren't getting credits towards Social Security so no retirement "safety net" for them.
They are illegals. They don't get benefits from these programs, so why should they pay into them?
Do you mean "Why should they obey the law?" Or do you mean "Why shouldn't I take advantage of their tenuous position and profit illegally from their status as undocumented workers?"
Workers who are paid illegally in cash can still pay their taxes with an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN), filing a return just like any other taxpayer; having a history of paying taxes can be an important step in securing legal status. In 2010, about 3 million people paid over $870 million in income taxes using an ITIN, and according to the IRS, ITIN filers pay $9 billion in payroll taxes annually. (The IRS says it does not share ITIN information with immigration authorities.)
And as for your concluding statement:
That is a lot better than picking tomatoes in Chiapas.
Your analysis has just reached the bottom of the barrel.
