Re: Texas Statewide Proposition 9, November 2019 Election

Do you know of any plans for Texas to strike their own gold coins? That would not be Constitutional: https://www.heritage.org/constitution/#!/articles/1/essays/70/state-coinage But recognizing privately minted coins as legal tender would be perfectly Constitutional. I'm pretty sure they are going t...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Vinny, it is pretty universally accepted by members of this forum that Krugman is a complete moron. That is EXACTLY what I expected. Yet he seemed to have the same attitude towards the deficit as just stated here previously. Of which I don't agree. I think that they matter tremendously. I'm forgett...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

On the debt, what about the argument about all the interest payments to the private sector? People have been saying for years that everything implodes if interest rates ever get back up to a "normal" level, because all the govt revenue would be going to service the debt. So does that mean interest ...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

We've had a lot of discussions over the years here about how a balanced budget may not be so good. It seems to cause recessions. The debt of the government is the savings of the private sector. There really isn't a need to "pay back" debt. The way that a balanced budget causes recessions is the sam...

Re: a Wealth Tax thread

When Sophie predicted a wealth tax quite some time ago I thought well, that’s not going to happen . Now it’s on the news every single day. A major contender in the Dem camp is really pushing this and is making it a signature feature of her campaign. Sure, Liz Warren is used to paying zero tax on he...

Re: Texas Statewide Proposition 9, November 2019 Election

If and when we move to a higher cost area near Austin, our taxes will go WAY up, probably tripling in all due to the higher rate and more expensive housing. Why on earth would someone with your views want to move to highly liberal Austin? I assume it's pretty conservative where you are now? Not in ...

Re: Texas Statewide Proposition 9, November 2019 Election

I know many of you gush about Texas, but I just looked at my property taxes, and they exceed 2% of the value of my property, which is pretty bad in my view. It's not a low tax State... it could be depending on your holdings and your sources of income. It's a mixed bag. Yes, it's a mixed bag: No inc...

Re: The Republican Brain?

If climate wasn’t changing, then why are there larger, more destructive fires in CA than even 10, 20, 30 years ago? If not climate, then poor management by humans which is even worse. it is the "even worse" https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/11/how_biggovernment_regulation_contributed_to...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

As I've said a few times, I am generally fine with what he's doing for the most part. But does he have to be such a dickwad while doing it? Is that a requirement for it to get done? It's hard to say, since the previous Presidents haven't had his approach nor his results. However, I personally think...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

This is an excellent illustration of how just fed up Trump supporters are with the media's attacks on him: https://youtu.be/GNQDUEUJxzY.
