Morning Reads With Thanks

I’m thankful for all my loyal fans (IE: the entirety of GAPol’s readership). And to anyone who isn’t on board: 

 

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

Jimmy Carter’s administration had the worst start of any other President’s within my living memory… until this one. 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.

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?!

Raleigh was right. I’m surrounded by wealth envy Socialists… There’s a reason it’s the worst of the Seven Deadly Sins.

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… Read more »

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.

That presumes Europeans exempt the maintenance expense from taxation. I doubt European wages are less.

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.

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.

Ed, just because you go to the dentist doesn’t mean you have to read the People magazines there. All this Tay-Tay is giving me a headache.

Good line yesterday from Ari Melber: So far this year Trump has pardoned two turkeys and Joe Arpaio.

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.

You think sexual assault is funny?

You’re a sick man.
