And to anyone who isn’t on board: White House shares Sen. Perdue’s op-ed. And the best junior senator from Georgia sends happy birthday wishes to the 3rd Infantry Division. Kennesaw realizes it will have to readjust if it wants to survive. The Braves are screwed. Delta gets some great news! Jimmy Carter continues to be a goody-two-shoes. As mediocre a POTUS as he was, I can’t believe Carter and Trump can now be associated. Johnny Isakson will, unfortunately, be very busy next year.

As I stated in this forum after the first hundred days, this administration makes Carter’s look like a well oiled machine. And yes, the Braves “rebuilding” just got the same treatment given the Georgia dome. There is definitely no joy in Mudville or Marietta. November 22, 2017 7:44 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope Perdue’s problem with the current tax code is that the current tax code gives a $250 break to teachers that buy their own school supplies instead of giving Perdue a tax break on his private jet. How can you expect a multi-millionaire to go out and create jobs when he still has to fly around in last year’s Gulfstream?! November 22, 2017 8:23 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Raleigh was right.

November 22, 2017 9:12 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn You okay with losing the SALT taxes, and paying taxes on your taxes? You okay with corporations getting better tax deals then small business? You okay with some professions who are self employed or own small firms getting stiffed because they are classified as a speciffic type of “professional”, while the new pass through rules aproved by the House allows hedge fund owners and billion dollar LLC’s who employee thousands of people greater tax breaks by percent paid then actual small business? You okay with lowering the corporate rate while leaving in the majority of the corporate tax loop holes that will allow companies that already pay zero or below what the new tax rate is taxes already? Pointing out the flaws and loop holes that only help a handful of people does not make you a socialist. Does the corporate tax code need to be reformed, yes it does. Does it need to be so law that it forces mandatory sending cuts to future budgets in things like Military sending, Social Security, and the Medicare/Medicaid system? (cutting or even eliminating anything else will not cover the revenue loses). Does it mean over spending again and raising the budget? Senator “Cut the national debit for our children and grandchildren” suddenly wants to expand it. Why? And before you go, ‘the future grow will pay for it… “The “greatest Business School in the world” per the president says… not really. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/21/senate-tax-bill-would-not-pay-for-itself-penn-wharton-report-says.html Which leads me to ask, why are we doing this again? http://www.forbes.com/sites/stancollender/2017/11/19/gop-tax-bill-is-the-end-of-all-economic-sanity-in-washington/ November 22, 2017 10:33 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn This will not help either… https://www.axios.com/total-trade-volume-with-existing-alliances-2510333776.html?utm_medium=linkshare&utm_campaign=organic November 22, 2017 10:58 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn Or this… https://www.axios.com/higher-premiums-would-cancel-out-some-tax-cuts-2511475643.html?utm_medium=linkshare&utm_campaign=organic November 22, 2017 11:12 AM Log in to Reply MattMD_actual No, Pride is usually considered the deadliest. November 23, 2017 8:49 PM Log in to Reply Ellynn I’m not against having a tax breaks for airplane maintenance. That’s a highly regulated and restrictive process to have planes certified and repaired. Small companies and small business would benefit for this. Large corporation would just take their jets to Europe or Asia to have FAA required and regulated maintenance if they didn’t get it here. That being said, tax break could be a bit lower then it is. November 22, 2017 9:47 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse That presumes Europeans exempt the maintenance expense from taxation. I doubt European wages are less. November 22, 2017 10:21 AM Log in to Reply Ellynn The current value of the dollar vs. the Euro would make the coast lower. I can also tell you Asian hubs for aircraft maintenance pay much lower then American based hubs. November 22, 2017 10:41 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope The $250 tax credit for school teachers who buy their own equipment and supplies would “save” $2 billion dollars. The GOP tax bill would also give $2 billion in tax cuts to Betsy DeVos’ family. This isn’t about the deficit, this isn’t about “growing business,” this isn’t about jobs. This is a charity handout to super wealthy Republican donors like DeVoses, the Kochs, and the Mercers.

Pope President Trump is upset that someone wasn’t sufficiently greatful. President is not upset that Roy Moore molested a 14-year-old girl and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl. This has been your daily reminder that Donald Trump is an awful human being.
