Re: How Long Will The Shutdown Last? (Dec 2018)

I don’t know about that. I think way too many people - Dems, Republicans, independents, everybody - are working from the assumption that Trump gives a flying fvck... Either the GOP in the Senate has a rebellion, or Pelosi caves on the wall, but Trump isn’t going to cave. He can do this straight on ...

Re: How Long Will The Shutdown Last? (Dec 2018)

The pressure is mounting on Trump though, and not on the Democrats. Time is not Trump's friend on this. By the way, I am finally seeing some hard numbers on people affected. Other than the 800K (out of 2M) federal civilians not getting paid, the number of contractors and grantees currently not work...

2018 TAXES

Your money, if you want to loan it for free and not have an additional $400/month available that's your call. That could buy a decent amount of diesel at some point down the road. :coffee: By the way, I'll be dieseling down I-85 through peach-that-looks-like-a-butt water tower land on Sunday and ba...

Re: Сделаем Америку снова великой! Trump - Russia megathread

Good point. The 2016 election cost about $6B. That money could've been used on something better.

W2 finally posted. Getting ~$4,500 federal return and ~$1,000 Delaware return. That in addition to a bump of around $200/paycheck in 2018 due to the Trump tax cut. I don't get why you'd want to loan two governments that kind of cash when you could adjust your withholdings and use your money year ro...
