Turns out Trump didn't ruin the economy.

Turns out Trump didn't ruin our relations with China

Turns out Trump didn't destroy America's image around the world

His latest tweet may be my favorite of all time.

and when the asset is sold by the heirs they will only pay taxes on the increase in it's value from the time they inherited.

buy asset for $100,000 in 1990
asset is worth $10,000,000 in 2017

If the owner sells the shares before they die they pay capital gains tax on the increase.

If they die their heirs inherit the asset and for tax purposes the cost price is $10,000,000 so no tax is ever paid on the increase from $100,000 to $10,000,000.

It's the perfect crime.

Buy a stock, with post tax dollars, watch it become huge; making yourself super rich.

Then you DIE and don't have to pay any taxes on it!

It's genius! There is no downside...well except for the dying part.


The government is ENTITLED to all monies. You have no right to gain ANY without giving them their share.

Work your job until April 23rd and give every penny to the government, every year. That is your duty, because the government is very efficient and careful with your money.

How dare anyone try to keep their money.


Besides, they will probably just blow it on investing in a new home or a yacht..putting hundreds of middle class people to work so they can have nice things. It's so unfair.

LOL; Gates, Buffet, and the Clintons have all pushed for higher taxes on the rich.

Look at how their companies use tax laws, like NetJet. They find every way to not pay taxes. Then on their own money they talk about higher taxes.

NetJet could have just handed over the $500mill it owed without fighting it if they were so tax friendly.

And Gates? He;s got a little bit of the hypocrisy problem

getting Microsoft out of about $1.5 billion in taxes a year



not Clinton, he just uses charitable organizations to dodge paying any taxes. Like how he uses his Canadian branch to receive shady offerings then transfer them to the US without having to disclose the names from the Canadian part of the same slush fund.

3 guys who tell you about the hundreds of dollars they give away while they keep millions

CNN just can't help themselves. They are the fake news poster child

First they try to be snarky by this headline:

Trump asks Japan to build cars in the US. It already does.

The lede is a selectively edited quote to imply Trump doesn't know Japan builds cars in the US.

Quote

"Try building your cars in the United States instead of shipping them over. Is that possible to ask? That's not rude. Is that rude? I don't think so," Trump told executives from local automakers during a trip to Japan.

Then they go on to casually talk about the car business.

They know they can get away with blatant lies about Trump because they are CNN


THEN they double down with another fake news story about Trump and the Koi fish freedinggate scandal that shows Trump is a buffoon.

Which also backfires once anyone with a brain looks at the story.

CNN: fake news; leaders.

Trump: America's leader

umm, it should be politicized is the point. The NRA and gun loons always say too soon but it's never too soon.

He wasn't a member of the NRA.

In fact no mass shooter ever has been a member of the NRA

But they often are members of the democrat party
