If you have a profit in shares you will pay tax on it when you sell. That is an immediate loss. I DCA my dividends. I quit that early this year and am accumulating cash now. I may sell some shares in my IRA. That way I pay no taxes. The drop will come sooner or later. I'm surprised it hasn't already. Our "Bank of Issue" currency will be badly eroded in value due to the huge sums pumped out over the past few years. I have several types of insureance against this.
Doesn't need weapon. Hands are enough. Boxers or martial arts people can be charged with felony assault just using their hands. Doesn't even need to be a direct threat, just a fleeing felon. What do they pay you for shilling? You've "got nothing" and "know nothing."
I'm overwhelmed with how clever you are. 30% of my school was Black. Not once did I ever see Whites assault a Black. The other way was quite common. I got pretty good at the self defense game. I worked with both pro and amateur boxing. I could hold my own with some pretty good fighters up into my early fifties. Even knew "Guido" and "Nunzio" in the fight game. I didn't need much school and I've done quite well over the years. Probably much better than you.
"Culture of violence?" Hmmm. Guess that is just peaceful gatherings in Franklin. Can't be violent as it's all Democrats. Some of my ancestors fought for the CSA. NONE owned slaves nor did they risk their lives so others could own them. That war was agitated by those known to be on the Rothschild payroll, on BOTH sides. heck out Skull & Bones member Judah P. Benjamin who served as Scty. of State for the CSA. Another of his ilk worked the North just can't think of the name off hand. "Benny" went to London after the war and continued working for his bosses there.
I believe most states allow a fleeing felon to be shot. If he really had stopped and put his hands up then the shooting was wrong. There will be a trial and all will come out. his certainly was no innocent little lamb. I used to have a fight a week in school with this type.
In California at least a fleeing felon can be shot legally. I believe most states have the same law. If he really had stopped and put his hands up it was wrong. I'm sure there will be a trial. Let's wait and see. In any case he was no innocent little angel.
"T" broke up in 1983. Until that time they honestly practiced their slogan. "Service is our only business." Don't know what happened. I took their early retirement offer with a little more than 30 years service. I've had good luck in going to their Human Resources inre to pension benefits and medical. Don't know why that same system can't be used for customers.
I'm not a cop lover and have had some run ins with several. But, there's two sides to every story just like the Trayvon Martin case. Let's let the whole story come out. 6'-4" and 250 lbs? Even when I was young I would have been a little worried. All I can say is don't riot in my neighborhood. You WILL pay for it.
I used to go to lefty meetings all the time and ask pointed questions. They act shocked when confronted. Only once was I confronted by one. I just set myself to let him take the first swing. That's all he would have gotten. Never did anything at their meetings but ask questions. They don't like that.
If you or others are interested look up "The Eddy Maunder". It appeared in National Geographic some years ago. He took core samples in the Bristle Cone Pines of California's White Mts. These are 4,500 years old. He then tested for the ions that solar activity releases and is incorporated into tree's rings. It shows a direct relationship between solar activity and "Climate Change." Over that 4,500 year period it has been both hotter and colder, and wetter and dryer than anything in the past few hundred years. Beware the liars that use falsified figures to "prove" man causes "Global Warming" Oops. I forgot, they now use "Climate Change" as their mantra. Climate changes all the time, so, what else is new?
I moved to the Phoenix area 2 years ago. I see many empty store fronts from that time. A large apartment complex was supposed to open in July It sits empty with no workers and half completed. A 6 story office building has sat unsold since before the time I moved. Many other such things all over this area. Not exactly typical of a growing economy.
I've had this problem with many companies and government offices. When I first got DSL I couldn't get it to work even after several visits from techs I tried something new. I called PT&T's Presidents office in S. F. A clerk after listening to my story connected me with a very nice gentleman. I told him I was a retired telephone man and explained my problem. He told me it would be taken care of. I had an experienced tech at my door early next morning who quickly fixed everything. As he left he said; "who do you know. No one gets service like this." I told him that after many problems that I decided to go as high up as I could. It worked. Guess they had forgotten their old slogan; "Service is our only business."
I've had a few bad encounters with bad cops. I've also known some good cops. Like everywhere there are good and bad.
Kennedy's, Clinton's and Obama's do that sort of thing all the time. What do you expect of ruling "elites". Commie rulers lived the same way. They went one step further and even had a private department store where they bought things the average "Ivan" couldn't get.
Border patrol keeps finding prayer rugs in the desert. Of course those that they say did 9/11 came courtesy of the Bush family. How many Bin Laden relatives were in Texas on that date? I believe there were about 35.
"Terrorists" won't attack until the ones that own this country need another "false flag" event to justify another war. Don't worry, it's coming soon.
"Dems" got Bin Laden? How did they do that? Oh, they went to Dubai while he was dying of kidney failure in a hospital in 2001? His "other" ath is one of the biggest lies foisted off on American sheeple since the lie that Dec. 7, 1941 was a "surprise."
Remember Dresden too. Not a single military target there and flooded with those fleeing the Russians. Britain tried to honor "Bomber" Harris the air marshall in charge of the bombing and so many protests came from ex-military they gave it up. "Bomber" Harris was also famous for strafing Bedouins in what is now Iraq for the big oil companies.
