Where were the other Countries in that part of the world? Don't they have a responsibility? Why should the U.S. be police for the whole world? Let's bring back the draft and then we will see how many are willing to send their sons and daughters off to war.
LOL: When you have done it, it is not boasting. I have not demeaned anyone. You, if you think about it, continually make sarcastic remarks about others. Tell us, if you can, if you actually did do hard work when you were young.
LOL, chairman, my work experiences must make you feel uncomfortable that someone actually did work hard to get where they are at net worth wise. I am not discounting others if you would think just a little. What I am pointing out is that I have experienced hard physical labor during some of my early years which gives me a better feel what many have to go through today. You more than likely were more fortunate and did not have to work the long, hard hours when you were young. Seeing that I was used to working, I still do volunteer work for the American Legion, and other civic clubs. Civic organizations like the Lions Clubs are always looking for members that volunteer their time.
It always amazes me that a person working for a company making a product for the market and that employee doesn't make enough money to buy the product they are making. In Japan the top administration in a Corp makes a salary 40- l of the workers. In the United States it averages over 400 to l. Maybe that is the reason there is a lack of demand.
longpickuptruck: I just read one of your replies that said you dug ditches for 60 cents an hour. And some other jobs you had for little wages. The 60 cents an hour is made up. I think I am older than you are and I worked in a feedmill 6 days a week for 75 cents an hour. In the early 50's I worked in a large factory making submarine and locomotive engine parts for $1.58 an hour. When I entered the military as an E1 the pay was less than $70.00 a month. On the farm when I was growing up, I milked cows when I was 8 years old getting up at 4:30 in the morning. We got paid 10 cents a week and got $5.00 when the haying season was over. My brother and I worked for the Township putting up snowfence for 75 cents an hour. We had to drive posts in clay hardpan which I would bet is harder work than you ever did.
The reality in today's market the employee has little to say about the wages he makes. The employer dictates what they will pay. You seem to be out of touch with reality, chairman.
Wow, everything will be fine now that the Repukes control both house of congress. There should be plenty of jobs materializing any day now. There will be so many jobs available that companies will have to raise their wage scale to attract new workers.
Ha ha, longpickuptruck, I worked and saved to get where I am today. For your info, my dad was a hard working farmer that did not lose the farm during the Hoover deep depression. And, by the way, I didn't ask for nor did I receive any inheritance from my father. My wife and I have done very well on our own. I also must point out I served in the regular military for 2 years and then 3 years in the active reserves. I wasn't a draft dodger that joined the National Guard to keep from being drafted.
Easy for Trump to talk, he inherited millions from his father.
miller, your posts just keep on exposing that you just aren't very smart. You keep posting material that has been debunked over and over again. You are either not very intelligent or you are plain lazy.
I guess that means you can't document what you wrote. LOL Another lazy con that can't back up what they wrote.
You are correct, oropan45. All major improvements should be added to the cost basis.
Google it and you get the answer. At one time, if if was not a landlord rental, the gain would not classify with the long term capital gains rules. There are tax advantages for long term capital gains.
Fox News is the proaganda new site for the teabaggers and Repukes. About time Obama puts them in their rightful place. After all, they claim to be an entertainment channel.
