The democrats have done an amazing job convincing their mentally challenged base to relinquish all hope of a better life outside the welfare state.
"You want to tax us double, triple,... on our hard earned (LOL) income?" the tard constituency asks, their political hacks,.. "Sure, go ahead". "We don't pay no stinking taxes anyway". "As long as you send us a check, food stamps, free breakfast, lunch and dinner for out kids at school, pay for our healthcare,... the rest of our lives, we don't care".
What tards fail to understand (or refuse to care because they'll never have anything anyway) is, estates - the land, the house, the furniture, etc was already taxed several times when it was bought and throughout its ownership. It's purchased with after tax earnings, then sales tax is paid on much of it during the purchase and/or improvemenrs, the property is taxed each year as property tax,
"So what if the people inheriting the estate didn’t earn or make any of the money?"
A. I know working is foreign to your ilk, but you don't know family members didn't earn it. Unlike the lottery you bring up as an example of something not earned (not surprisingly since the welfare state probably spends more on the lottery than all other sectors of the economy combined), you can't imagine anyone working on say a family farm a large part of their life, the land increasing in value as a result of the improvements, minerals, population expansion,... whatever easily hitting the $5 M mark after 50 years of ownership.
B. The government certainly didn't earn it, nor did the typical democrats the government will give the tax revenue to in welfare in return for their vote.
The only people who would be ok with raising any taxes is those who pay no taxes. Your family would be proud if they had any conscience, self respect, pride,...
There's only one type of person who could be more ignorant and helpless and that's some ignorant fellow welfare dolt who thinks you should run for office.
Oh that's right.
Every time talavoy got overcome with with despair in the past he'd drop to the floor, curl up in a fetal position and start quoting his favorite sci fi movie as if he were one of the characters. Like Harry Potter, Shrek, Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit,.... This time it appears to be some cross between superman, tellie tubbies and Rachel Maddow, the ex star of The Wonder Years where she played Kevin Arnold.
The current episode of despair seems to stem from the democrats once again propping up some underwhelming candidate with no qualifications to run for president other than, although they were never victimized themselves (quite the opposite they live very privileged lives), at some time in history their race and/or sexual organ was in some way thought to have been treated unfairly. And now it's all present day human's fault. The term they like to use is "victimized". So the fantasy of his victimization organization.
But don't mock talavoy, he has reason to be full of despair and completely despondent,.....to vote for candidates he believes were victimized. Ya see, he grew up in the southwest of Britain in Cornish country where prepubescents worked as towel boys and weren't allowed to wear anything under their kilts. As it were Cornwall was a favorite vacation destination for fat harry greek men who frequented this area all too often, the one under his kilt and Cornwall too. In fact the Cornish termcornholeoriginated from this area. And as it is, no one can deny Hillary reminds everyone of fat harry greek men.
Ergo he lapses in the fetal position and becomes Rachel Maddow Man.
C was "on its way".
Today it's a 1.5% step down for C, 1.5% giant step down for bag holder kind.
Some rocket scientist C "investors" got some splaining to do.
"You (definitely) sound like a stupid" idiot who put all of his money in C in 2007, lost 90% of it and is now, in spite of all of the other much more profitable stocks, pitifully hanging on hoping it will go to the pre-downfall/pre-dilution/pre-reverse split adjusted price of $580 to breakeven. One who couldn't understand C's financials or the metrics needed to do this, let alone buying C's assets at a discount, if his boyfriend's life depended on it. One who is so clueless, he high five's the other morons who've done the same when it goes up 1.5% on a mere doubling of average volume on earnings announcement day. The same stock that will probably be down 1.5% today. The same stock that will fall back to $50 or lower within a month where the same morons will once again post, from their night watchman's job at Walmart, for Corbat's removal, rinse and repeat until they are 85.
Strange you put more weight on what is far closer to the truth (Hillary is a sloppy fat pig) on this board than say what the old ex beat up (by his own brother) leader of the senate Harry Reid has said of republican candidates and others recently. Or what other ckichenshits like Maher on your poosie side said about past candidates.
Actually nobody cares what dependents like you think. We'd just as soon, you said thanks for the welfare andstfu.
Let me show you how to make money on C.
First, sell the #$%$ stock that pays an insulting dividend of 0.3%.
Then, buy one of the millions of residential assets C is selling at 50 to 70 cents on the dollar. Say a 2000 sf home for $100K+/-. Put 20% down and have C finance it for about 5%. Put about $20K in it fixing it up and then rent it for $1500/mt.
Since I'm sure it escapes you, here's the math. You'll have $40K of you own money in it. The PITI will be about $800/mt with a net of about $700. The annual return will be 8400/40K x 100% = 21%. Within 5 years, you get your original investment back and you have a $150,000 asset, with a liability of about $75K for an increase in net worth of $75K. On top of that you have an income stream of $8400/yr, from which you deduct interest, insurance, depreciation, expenses,... for a minimal tax liability, rinse and repeat.
That's one way a "smart" person makes money.
Here's how you think a "smart" person makes money on C -
First, buy the #$%$ C stock paying a 0.3% dividend, then quoting you-
"a smart person will buy everything on his credit card and pay the card off at the end of the month and get 2% to 5% back or free Flights and hotels or some combination,...."
Right. No I didn't "lost my shirt", I was short banks during the collapse until they banned shorting financials. And then I started buying foreclosures.
You've obviously been long C since at least 2007. So you're down only 88% today rather than the 90% yesterday.
While you're waiting for C to return to $580 to breakeven, I'm making at least 20% annually on my money. Plus whatever I make trading a few stocks and options.
You've got your socialism mixed up with free market and vice versus. It's only through socialist government funded bailouts and fed loose monetary policy that C is artificially propped up and here today. Under a free market, C should have been allowed to go bankrupt for it's poor management decisions prior to the financial collapse.
That's how a free market works. Bad actors get taken out, not subsidized by money stolen from tax payers via the loss of buying power of the currency, their savings.
If that's not bad enough, deposit your money at C and they pay you less than 1% interest. Buy something on one of their credit cards and they charge you 15 to 20% or more interest. For bailing them out.
We won't mention they paid back the bailout by robbing from their own share holders via secondaries and share dilution. To add insult to injury they reward you with a 10:1 reverse split institutionalizing your loss.
And the clueless leave their money in C thinking it's going back to $500.
Now that was good.
He's also a bit of a pixy, thus the name talavoy, or talo-boi, which is Cornish for a "towel boy who wears nothing under his kilt".
he says he wants to force everyone, living pay check to pay check under his bonobonomics, to pay double or more for oil, gasoline, diesel, to drive their cars,... natural gas, heating oil,.. to heat their homes,... he wants to stamp out coal and nuclear power (well except in Iran where he wants to expand it), so that everyone will buy electric cars (knowing little that the electricity for electric cars comes from fossil fuels), stick solar panels and windmills on the tops of their homes,.... and what happens?
Oil prices fall by 50%, Gas and diesel prices fall by 40%, nat gas is at all time lows.
He says he wants to reduce healthcare costs and healthcare costs are not only rising, but accelerating faster now than before bonobocare.
He says he wants to end the war on terror and it's worse now than in 2002.
Everything this guy does, these applications of liberal ideology, are complete disasters for main street America.
But the gay & lesbian community can now get free contraceptives to ensure they won't get pregnant. (For the tards who'll miss the point and cheer this highest of bonobo's non-accomplishments, you can't get pregnant by gay and lesbian sex.)
Although Walker would probably be the best president, because tards vote for genitalia and skin color over actual qualifications, if Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio run Carly Fiorina as VP, cankles could be in trouble.
She was a senator in name only. Her secretary of state stint is defined by the absolutely disastrous way she and bonobo handled Benghazi. For the last few years she's done nothing but shake foreign countries down for millions in return for promises of favors if she becomes president.
By all rights Biden should be the front runner, but we know what a compete dolt he is.
Kerry was the candidate before, but he couldn't even beat ole doofus Bush.
Al gore could be in there, but I guess stump's global warming scam puts a damper on his credibility. And he couldn't beat ole doofus Bush either.
Elizabeth Warren? Her only accomplishment is getting this far in life and having no accomplishments. Which puts her right down there with Hilary.
I mean the only states doing well economically are run by republican governors, so there can't be any democrat governors running.
I guess cankles is the best next worst presidential candidate the tards have.
I think you mean "very deranged" to us.
His democrat leaders say his mind was not a terrible thing to waste, in fact no mind is too terrible to waste in their ultimate plan to convert the semi capitalist US into a fully erect communist state.
Which is consistent with their strategy of obsessing, not about issues that effect the living standards of everyday people, but about the genitalia of the fringe. Bill Cliton tried to provide "free" healthcare while reaching out to women's genitalia (as they reached out for his and it wasn't just lip service). bonobo actually achieved free contraceptives for women's not so free genitalia (I mean do you see what dinner and a movie cost under bonobonomics these days? no wonder democrats are using mickey's and date raping their womens), had an evolution on men placing their genitalia in other men's sphincters. Now the democrats are asking you to vote for hillary because of her genitalia. Cankles are the new sexy.
I guarantee you, you would much rather I post 2 or 3 times per week about your incompetent leaders, than have me constantly highlight the financial details that prove what a moron you are for being "an actual (C) stockholder".
I hope for your own sake you don't own C because you think it's going above $100 +$700/-$40.
Far be it from democrats to submit a candidate that's qualified to be president, one that might represent American values and principles as opposed to some ensemble of foreign America hating socialist state's values and principles, but should they elect the new worst president in US history as hillary and chelsea say "just because she's a woman" like they elected bonobo, the current worst president in US history, just because "he looked like a clean black fellow" as biden said?
I'm not sure if bonobo trading 5 terrorist generals for 1 democrat traitor is the worst thing any public official has ever done, but it's right down there with Benedict Arnold at least.
Actually Benedict Arnold would have made a better president than bonobo.
The rumors are it would be the first woman president.
I would say we need to do a gender test, but like Benghazi, it really doesn't matter what her/his real gender or politics are, all that matters is we get something in there that isn't quite as much a bipedal man as we've had in there the last 220 years or so.
And in 8 years, the left will elect the first drag queen president. Then the first pedophile president. The firstmuslimterrorist president. No wait bonobo covers the first quadruped and the firstmulsimterrorist president.
Apparently he's not too frail -
"Flight Logs Put Clinton, Dershowitz on Pedophile Billionaire’s Sex Jet
Bill Clinton took repeated trips on the " Lolita Express"—the private passenger jet owned by billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein—with an actress in softcore porn movies whose name appears in Epstein's address book under an entry for "massages," according to flight logbooks obtained by Gawker and published today for the first time. The logs also show that Clinton shared more than a dozen flights with a woman who federal prosecutors believe procured underage girls to sexually service Epstein and his friends and acted as a "potential co-conspirator" in his crimes.
Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 in Florida to one count of soliciting underage girls for sex (and one count of adult solicitation), for which he served just over a year in county jail. But sprawling local, state, and federal investigations into the eccentric investor's habit of paying teen girls for "massages"—sessions during which he would allegedly penetrate girls with sex toys, demand to be masturbated, and have intercourse—turned up a massive network of victims, including 35 female minors whom federal prosecutors believed he'd sexually abused. He has reportedly settled lawsuits from more than 30 "Jane Doe" victims since 2008; the youngest alleged victim was 12 years old at the time of her abuse."
You left a few things off the list of leftist things that victimize those mean ole right wingers -
The left patriotically dwarfing Bush's debt in half the time.
The left doubling the welfare state in record time.
And after the left sneaks another 10 or 20 million uneducated, unskilled, disease ridden democrats across the border, it'll double it again. Microsofts and Apple type companies galore will spring forth from these model undocumented democrats.
(Speaking of disease ridden, that ebola thing, bringing africans infected with a deadly disease to America,... mmmmm that was pure victimizaton genius.)
The left's labor force participation rate, is the lowest since Carter got kicked out of office, but don't you worry your little entitlement head about that, bonobo says the umemploymanent rates be 5.5% and wes all knows you can trust you some bonobo, cuzzin (blackref will be glad to know) the blacks umemploymanent rates be the lowest of alls.
The left is proud to report the middle eastern chapter of the democrat party who will soon be executive ordered voting rights, ISIS, seems to be prospering well under bonobo's leadership, although there are still some areas where it's a coin toss - tails you lose, heads you lose your head.
So the left is also proud to announce that Iran will soon have nuclear missiles lob over on Israel. Since #$%$ generally support the left, that's kind of like shooting themselves in the foot, but who can know the mind of the chosen insane peeps who claim to talk to burning bushes. No not George Bushes, or George Burns, but burning bushes.
And of course last but not least, the one nearest and dearest to talavoy's own personal life (if he were only here to hear), bonobo's had an evolution on the transgendered. He will soon executive order tax payer funded trans-transgender sex change operations. That's the one where they got the sex change before on the tax payer, decided they weren't the other sex after all and need a sex change to change back.
Hillary's poll numbers are dropping to their knees like a tard at a gay pride rally, so it may be moot, but you have to consider a line of women sneaking in and out of the first lady's office. Who would Bill choose as his Chief of Shaft?
