As Our Tax Returns Shrivel, Big Banks Got $28 Billion In Tax Savings Last Year - TROFIRE

February 24, 2019: The Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins reports on some of the negative effects on US taxpayers's refunds 'thanks' to the Trump-GOP Tax Cut for America's wealthy class of greedy piggies:

Remember the golden day of December 22, 2017 when Trump signed the GOP Tax Cut Bill (heist!) then rushed off to the luxury of Mar-a-Lago? And of course the non-empathetic GOP plan includes putting America's social safety net programs on their chopping block in spite of the nationwide suffering, even death, it would cause. Create the problem then pretend you have the only solution--it's so Hegelian!

Moving "Beyond Outrage"--Robert Reich (video)

America's Kitten-in-String Finances and What to Do About Them

If you've ever read this blog before then you know I'm all about embedding this video from Public Policy Professor Robert Reich concerning his new e-book Beyond Outrage with its practical ideas for what to do about our nation's income inequality and its dire effects upon American lives and the future of our country:

And here's a political hoot: Mitt Romney is reported to be filing for an extension on his 2011 tax return. Perhaps one of his accountants misplaced a few statements from his offshore accounts. Yet we must not judge for it's so very difficult to keep up with all those facts and figures when you're rich as King Midas, running for office, and must depend totally on the help to keep you honest.

While I'm at it, here's another video you might profit from presented by Robert Reich and which features Mitt's Millions:

Born in 1946 with Sun in Cancer, here are previous posts concerning the two possible combinations of Sun-Moon blends of Robert Reich. My apology if my comments after one of the posts are in any way offensive to the Professor or to those who know him especially since he has continued to speak out on behalf of those of us who cannot or will not do so--or wouldn't be listened to if we did. jc

A Robin Hood Tax for US toffs? (video w Thom Hartmann)


Sometimes living in the real world where bridges weaken over time, highways, airports, and airplanes require regular maintenance, and police officers need paychecks can be quite difficult to manage from that elusive ivory tower of aristocratic wealth, privilege, and luxury promised to those at the world's pinnacle.

Can we blame filthy rich plutocrats and their broods if their collective yet selective Bubble so seldom lands amongst the rabble?

Spinning Asteroids Flashing! (and IRS) 4.15.11

A spinning space rock for Tax Day 2011! Well, sort of Tax Day since today is a holiday in the District of Columbia. Therefore, taxes are due by midnight on Monday April 18, 2011. Meanwhile, over our noggins, train your telescope on the "strobe light" twirling above!

Space Weather News for April 15, 2011

SPINNING ASTEROID FLYBY: A 50-meter asteroid is flying past the Earth-Moon system on April 15th. There's no danger of a collision, but the 50-meter space rock is remarkable. It is elongated and spinning, which causes the asteroid to flash like a strobe light in amateur telescopes.

Video and observing tips are highlighted on today's edition of SpaceWeatther News.

GET YOUR OWN SPACE ROCK: Would you like to own your own piece of an asteroid? Authentic fragments of space rocks are available from the SpaceWeather Store.

Losing Religion in favor of Politics?

If so, you may want to reconsider mixing spirtual with political before the IRS gets onto ya and takes your church's tax exempt status away.

Read my post at Jude's Treshold on Election Year: Politics in the Pulpit for a list of some of the prohibitions on 'voter guides', political endorsements, etc, and there's a more info link provided, plus some 'wedge issue' views of my own which may ruffle feathers here or there, I don't know.
