I saw it coming awhile back when Ben Bernanke was replaced by gray haired grandma Janet Yellen that looks somewhat like Grandma Clinton.
So, in response to 6 years of QE and propped up stock market, Hillary wants to raise short term Capital gains from 24% to 39.6% in the second year. So, if someone buys a stock at $100 and it goes up to $200 in 2 years, the capital gains is $40. Is this to stem an exit from the stock market as Yellen raises the prime this year?
But under Clinton’s plan, the tax rate for top earners on capital gains would remain at 39.6% in the second year, and then drop over six years to their current levels.
Hillary Clinton wants to lock up the stock market and make it a costly adventure to sell stocks. Is this her way of protecting 401Ks from Wall Streeters? Or is it a forecast of the stock market plummeting when interest rates are raised?
Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are starting to look shop worn from their inept campaigns. Hillary Clinton is still having to deal with sending classified emails on her personal server. Donald Trump on the other hand is hanging himself with his own rope.
Lindsey Graham’s campaign manager is a low level artistically challenged dummkopf.. His latest video relating to Trump and the phone thing was at an 8th grade level. At a circa 1970 8th grade level.
Meanwhile, Rick Perry has challenged Donald Trump to a cage fight to the political death. Rick has morphed from a 2012 Tim Tebow like comeback to a 2015Conor McGregor style big mouth. I wonder if he could submit Trump before Trump could get in a crushing pseudo right hook.
Then again, Rick Perry is in good shape for 65. Donald Trump might have to work on his cardio.
I think Rick Perry misses Anita Thigpin’s good cooking. I guess the repetitive Chi-Fil-A sandwiches and greasy fries are starting to get under his skin. A few more days of McDonald and Rick might start stalking Donald. Rick might be jealous that Trump is staying in 4 star hotels and funding his campaign with NIKE stock dividends. Meanwhile, Rick has been staying in Best Westerns, eating at the Waffle house, and not spending all the money.
What do assholes like Trump eat for lunch?
If Rick Perry were an MMA UFC fighter, he would be a top contender politically speaking. Sideshow Trump, well, he probably got his ass kicked during recess even at a private school.
I think Captain Perry has harvested about all he can get from Donald Trump the self absorbed (I have more money than you) narcissistic personality disorder boob. It is probably all about ratings going into August 6th.
In lieu of calling Donald Trump a cancer, he should have called him simply painful rectal itch. You sir are “painful rectal itch!”
It is time to take a different path, you have squeezed that media Trump turnip for all it is worth.
Now apologize for saying that Trump is a cancer and take the high road like an officer, gentleman, and a presidential candidate.
Now he is seeking to exploit Kate Steinle by introducing a bill that puts illegals guilty of reentry into an American jail for 5 years.
Three hots and a cot?
Wow, Ted Cruz wants to fill our jails with illegals at $30,000 a year per inmate. That’s over $200,000 for legal fees and incarceration. If 160,000 illegals are caught and guilty of re-entry a year, that adds up to $4,800,000,000. In 5 years that number would rise to $25 billion a year.
How about putting them in a bus or train and taking them back to Mexico city?
While Rick Perry is the most experienced candidate in the Republican field, sometimes he comes off as obtuse and inappropriate.
I tweeted Rick Perry several times and ask him not to use the term cancer when describing Donald Trump. In fact, I pleaded with him. Instead, Rick Perry doubled down on the term cancer.
Just a few weeks ago, I ask him not to refer to “water boarding, and rectal feeding!”.
Rick Buddy, nobody wants to hear references to cancer, water boarding or rectal feeding. Please police your use of words…
This is not the Rick Perry people respect or are endeared to.
I suggest apologizing for using the term cancer to describe Trumpism.
I am going to take a break blogging for you for awhile. You have let the air out of my tires. I have to paint a house anyways. Painting a house is value adding. Calling Trump a cancer is reprehensible and non value adding.
I have a hard time following people who use inappropriate terms…I may be just fat old Air Force enlisted aircrew, but I have a little class….If you fuckers don’t want to listen to the Flight Engineer than so be it. Go ahead and run the aircraft into a hangar for all I care. Your political advisers are stupid idiots. My word!!!!!
You have taken the cancerous gutter road as it relates to Trump.
Trump is simply a narcissistic personality disorder that relies on his fortune for status, mental health, and self worth. he is not, however, a cancer. Hitler was a cancer. Trump is just a rash and a leader for those that are soft in the head.
As the governor of Texas, Rick Perry saw first hand how common sense oriented emission programs worked very effectively. During Rick Perry’s 14 years as governor, vehicle emissions were reduced significantly. Perry understands that we must have programs in place that both protect the environment and harvest the vast natural gas fields that America possesses. I mean, even the most hardcore environmentalist understand that Americans cannot heat their homes without natural gas or electricity.
Nevada governor Brian Sandoval is all about Solar power.
Solar energy combined with new heating and cooling technologies has great promise going forward.
Solar energy combined with new battery technology will reduce carbon emissions.
below is a video done by Rick Perry. You can tell he is in back pain.
Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval is not content with the second fastest growing economy in the US. He is not content with Las Vegas’s booming vacation industry. It seems that he is the kind of governor who will not leave any stone un-turned when it comes to creating a better future for Nevada.
He is on a trade mission to Ireland, England, Germany, Poland and Italy.
Had he told me ahead of time, he could have met my relatives on the farm in Bavaria and had some homemade schnitzel. Oh and my cousins work at BMW.
It is interesting to observe the thought processes of political candidates. While Ted Cruz may be polished at grandiose senate chamber gibberish, his campaign tactics and strategy are quite low level. In fact, he and his campaign advisers are probably as inept as Obama, Rice, and Jarette.
Just a few days ago, Ted Cruz would not condemn Donald Trump for his attack on war heroes and POWs. Ted was more interested in Trump’s $10 billion and an endorsement than doing what is right. This suggests the former SCOTUS intern hasn’t learned a thing about decision making. His reason for not condemning Trump was that he did not want to engage in the media hype. Oh really? Ted Cruz wanted to do something different , as opposed to Rick Perry. Ted Cruz saw dollar signs first. Once Donald Trump bows out because of his own neanderthal idiocy, Ted wants to be at the receiving end. He figures that the mentally unbalanced Trump will reward him for standing with him and against POWs etc.
So, then, Ted Cruz pivots from kissing Donald Trump’s ass to an Iran nuclear dooms day scenario. This is like Obama attacking our 2nd amendment rights after Sandy Hook in order to run media interference for Benghazi. This recent grandiosity suggests that Ted Cruz likes to engage in media hype and will use it for attempted manipulation of the public.
While the Obama/Iran nuclear deal is a bad deal, Ted Cruz is now using the issue to run interference for kissing Trump’s ass. It is like Bill Clinton launching cruise missiles at Libya to take our minds off the cum stained blue dress.
Rick Perry is starting to solidify his preeminence among the Israeli lobby. Israelis understand that Rick Perry will stand with them. Ted Cruz wants to now preempt this trend. I figure AIPAC thinks Ted Cruz is simply an opportunist with a big mouth. He has not shown us nuttin I tell ya.
As sure as the C-141 Starlifter supported Israel during the Yom Kippur War, Rick Perry will stand with Israel in 2016, and it is not a campaign ploy.
Ted Cruz has nothing to offer concerning immigration reform or securing the border. Ted Cruz never served in uniform and has zero credibility as it related to foreign policy experience. I mean except for grandiose and loquacious behavior on the senate floor, what does Ted Cruz really have to offer?
As it is, Donald Trump has proven himself to be divisive, self absorbed, nasty, and incoherent. He is no Ross Perot. He thinks his money gives him legitimacy. If you do not support him he threatens to sic his billions on you.
