    Being real

    I think Trump is gonna have to deal with the loss if the religious vote and the small government vote after he started using the power of the federal government to kill Americams again. Oh wait, we don't actually care about life or distrust government.

    Would you support packing the courts?

    It is worth a look at what Republicans have done at the state level to pack courts and to strip power from Democrat governors as well. Let's not pretend like the Democrats would be first actors here. Look inward Republicans.

    Would you support packing the courts?

    Both sides. Nice. I said nothing about the merit of the democrats. Simply calling out the truth regarding the current GOP and its promotion of power over principle. They've abandoned conservativism in favor of Trump and power. There's no debate left on that one, especially after the convention...

    Would you support packing the courts?

    I'm with you, but the republican party (or the shell that remains) is already playing by these rules and we have a government being run by a minority acting like a majority with a mandate. If the democrats keep unilaterally disarming, we're not going to have much of a country left. The...

    A Harris Administration

    That's kind of adorable. It takes all of five seconds to find the major issues on which he's flip flopped over the years based on what serves his interests. I'll give him that.

    A Harris Administration

    Basing one's vote on an analysis of which candidate has flexible views and is a demonstrated loose cannon... that's not gonna bode well for the current occupant of the White House. H

    Where are you on schools receiving funding (school choice)?

    I still pay for roads I don't use because they make society better. Next troll topic?

    Couple wearing Nazi swastika masks at MN Walmart

    Mask Nazis.... Yep, can't get dumber than that. These people are just so fragile. It's hilarious.

    Iowa Farmers here, please answer me this...

    Farming in the United States is inherently socialist. Go all the way back to the homestead act if you want, or just look more recently at the government payments flowing in.

    Iowa Farmers here, please answer me this...

    A country where the wealthy, landed elite are able to create and pass on dynastic wealth...hmmm, that rings a bell.

    Anyone refinance during this mess? What rate did you get?

    Going to move from a 30 year at 4.2% to a 15 year at 2.8%. That will cut 7 years off the loan and keep our payments virtually the same. Very nice. . . now I just need to get it done.

    You can find "studies" to support anything. Use your brain. Trust experts. Wear a mask.

    GOP Reps confirm the Russia bounty is, wait for it, REAL

    You are correct. There are precisely zero policy responses between doing nothing and killing a foreign official. Trump's hands are really tied here... Good grief.

    Why should cost basis be stepped-up?

    Both right and left generally agree that the tax code should apply equally and not give exceptions and preferences unless there's some worthy goal being pursued. This is an example of a huge preference given overwhelmingly to the top 1% or .01%. It would be much better to tax all this income...

    Why should cost basis be stepped-up?

    As a trade off for allowing the transfer without requiring the payment of tax, like most transfers, as you recognize. Making the transfer not taxable AND giving a step up is a double tax benefit.
