    Really.  I thought about breaking down each category and explaining it to him, but it's futile.   I'd rather watch football today than attempt to educate him.  You can buy idjits like him books and books and more books, but all he'd do would be chew the covers off 'em.

    My original "nuh uh" was poking fun at his childish attempts to debate.  He's not the deepest thinker, for sure and his links are constant proof of his confirmation bias.  Notice he'll never link to any objective website, but only from far-left ones.  I know it's not good to impeach the source, but for cryin' out loud, The Daily Kos?  They make Alex Jones look reasonable.

    My brain is in shut down mode today. If he had any clue on how badly we are being gouged he would be angry.

    If he understood that creating jobs creates more tax payers

    8 years of Obama, infrastructure still a mess, education, we are 27th in the world, Medical costs through the roof.

    Not safer, people running willy nilly across our borders bringing, drugs, guns and diseases, depleting all those precious tax dollars for Police, fire, etc.

    Under Hillary it will be worse.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      He probably has a straggly beard and hair and a closet full of nothin' but hoodies.

      What gets me about Teddy Bear's last statement was it was not only from ThinkProgress, but also from something Romney said over 4 yrs. ago!  Talk about livin' in the past!  I guess he wasn't having any luck slamming Trump, he had to travel back in time to attack the last Republican, albeit liberal, candidate for President.

      Next up: "Bush lied, people died!" and then "Halliburton! HALLIBURTON!!!"

      Teddy Bear / Ted Jr.  A coincidence?  I think we're on to something.

        trump does not pay any taxes for about 18 years!  Sorry school teachers, infrastructure, firemen, police officers, sorry to children of the USA!  Poor people do not pay taxes, add trump to the poor people list.  Don't worry about it, the middle class will pick up the taxes.

        He's also been audited for at least 15 years. That means whatever he's doing, it's legal per current tax code.  Don't like it? Reform the tax code. 

        Trump's tax plan eliminates some deductions and caps itemized deductions.

              Income is not stupid, it pays for the things you need and want. We all need income.

                  You are right, we need more jobs that will create more tax payers.  That way trump does not have to pay taxes ever again.  Good thought!

                      Again,

                      what about Hilldog's emails? Are Trump's taxes more important than Benghazi and all those (30,000!!!) emails that probably endangered our national security? Trump's taxes didn't cause anyone to die.

                      You keep harping on Trump's taxes, I'll keep harping on Hilldog's Benghazi screwup and her email lies.

                          Did that cause people to die, like Hilldog did those poor people in Benghazi?

                          Did that cause a national security crisis like Hilldog's emails?

                          Why aren't you concerned about the important things, like Benghazi and Hilldog's email lies?

                            Not as "good" of one as Hillary, apparently.  By "good", I mean "good" at shady deals and bribery.

                            I am re-publishing more than I should, but I am only quoting the most pertinent parts which are necessary to tell the entire story. The second asterisk* is ending a gap I left out from the original article, but explains why the deal happened.

                            From the Fiscal Times

                            Under the guidance of an attorney representing Tyson Foods, Hillary Clinton made a $98,540 profit from a $1,000 initial investment in less than one year trading commodity futures. While $98,540 may not seem like much money relative to the Clinton family’s wealth today, it exceeded Bill and Hillary’s combined annual income at the time.

                            When this story was revealed in the spring of 1994, Hillary Clinton’s press secretary suggested that the enormous profit was the result of the First Lady’s own research — but the Tyson*-linked attorney, James Blair, admitted that he advised Clinton when to buy and sell the futures. Further, there was no evidence that Clinton had previously traded in commodity futures or knew much about the market.

                            Careful readers at the time also learned that Clinton’s initial trading also had a serious irregularity. Unlike stock investments, commodity futures are almost always purchased with high levels of margin, meaning that the investor is using a substantial proportion of money borrowed from the broker to control positions. Exchanges and regulators typically require investors to keep a minimum amount of cash in their futures accounts to avoid getting into a negative position if futures prices move in the wrong direction. In Hillary Clinton’s case, her $1,000 initial investment was well below the $12,000 deposit required by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for the first trades she executed. So not only did Hillary make an extraordinary profit for a novice investor, she did so without following the rules applied to less well-connected traders.

                            *During Mr. Clinton's tenure in Arkansas, Tyson benefited from a variety of state actions, including $9 million in government loans, the placement of company executives on important state boards and favorable decisions on environmental issues.”

                            Tyson appears to have obtained these results for what looks like a bribe delivered though Hillary Clinton’s commodities account. To quote the company’s former chairman: politics is “a series of unsentimental transactions between those who need votes and those who have money.”

                            This perspective should provide cause for concern today, since Hillary Clinton made $2.9 million in speaking fees from large financial institutions between 2013 and 2015. That total includes $675,000 from the much reviled Goldman Sachs. One is left to wonder whether Goldman and the other financial industry behemoths stand to gain any transactional benefits for their money. (the bold was done by me, but it is an important point to consider)

                            While paid speech-making is not illegal, bribery is. Tyson might have simply made a campaign contribution to Bill Clinton back then, but that would have violated limits then in effect. Instead, Bill and Hillary pushed — and seemingly broke — ethical and legal limits to get the cash they needed.

                              The tax code allows businesses to offset losses and carry them forward to offset taxes. It is done all the time per the tax code. Sully is right. You know nothing about taxation.
