gw-mental, I saw W at the Rangers ballgame here last night. I couldn't tell if he invented any new words but he looked healthy and like he was enjoying himself.
Liza, most of us appreciate your informative posts.
As for Norris, it seems to me that he is steadily losing his mental capabilities.
I fully expect that eventually his posts will deteriorate into complete drivel, with every other word being "progressive", "pagan", "collectivist" , or "OLB", etc. In the last couple of years he has already traveled down that road a good distance.
I talked to Ronald Reagan before his Alzheimer's got too bad. Later he began stimulating the U.S. economy by more than doubling the National Debt. Still later, after he held a news conference the White House would spend the rest of the day explaining what he REALLY meant to say.
Now Republicans are fighting or preventing any stimulus efforts while still worshiping Reagan, seeming not to understand how his tax-cut stimulus worked. I was opposed to the Reagan tax cuts because they mainly benefited the rich, but it was no surprise that almost tripling the National Debt would stimulate the economy. The problem with it is that our grandchildren have to pay the interest on that debt.
No, it was at the Republican National Convention in Detroit. I talked to George H.W. Bush there too. I asked him how he was feeling after about four years of him going around the country campaigning, since it looked like Reagan had the Presidential Nomination locked up. That ended our conversation.
Shortcut, members of Congress are elected. When a President proposes tax cuts it is very difficult for an elected official to vote against it. The degree of difficulty depends on the district, but in any district it is not low-income voters who are making campaign donations.
As for President Obama compromising, it's the Tea-party people driving the GOP who publicly state that they won't compromise.
Finally, it's really funny for a conservative to accuse liberals of telling lies. Right-wingers lie constantly and seem to feel no shame about it.
Did you file a NR302 E form with your broker concerning Canadian tax withholding on BIP?
For type of income I listed Flow-through investments income, but I have no idea about part XII
effective rate of withholding, or Treaty exemption percentage, or where to find worksheets A and B.
I remember that there is a link on the notification from TDAmeritrade, so I'll take a look at that to see
if there's further information.
barmy, we are confronted with evidence that a member of this board has lost his mind,
and you nitpick about grammar?
I sold all my SFI to establish a loss, then bought back in a month or two later and I'm up over $70,000
on the new shares of common and preferred. If it got up to $100 I might retire from investing :-)
Shortcut, the NR302 E (10) form I downloaded from the Canadian Revenue Agency was just one page and had no worksheets. I would appreciate it if you would give me a link that worked for you to get the full download.
Sortcuttthru, I found the forms and I will try to learn how to fill them out by looking at the web page you suggested..............thanks
This is looking like a form for BIP to fill out, since the worksheets ask for the names of all the partners.
I have written a letter to the Canada Revenue Agency seeking clarification.
Yes, I guess that I am a non-resident payee, and a partner. My next step is to wait to see if the Revenue Agency replies to my letter.
I think the occasional repurchase of shares by SFI is a good investment for the company. I know it's been a good investment for me!
Sorry to hear that, Chance. I hope you are checking out your exchange to see if a better deal is being offered. I read that here in Texas the rates went down for many people. That's ironic, since the State didn't set up it's own exchange. My wife's Humana Gold plan went up two dollars a month, but the benefits went up too. Maybe the new Obama plan requirements affected the benefits? She's 76-years old, so getting maternity benefits won't help. :-)
I said elected officials, but I should have said the people who run our local, state and national governments, school districts, etc.
I sure was relieved to see CVRR take a big jump this morning. I'm way down on that one, after expecting it to do real well. I haven't given up on those hopes though.
I just saw a post using the name norrishappy, and there was not a single mention of Progressives or Pagans or other unsavory characters. Or maybe you started taking your pills?
