Agreed. The money has already been taxed. Why tax it again? I guess the government has a license to steal...

I agree his sold proclaimed worth is a bit far fetched but he's got more money than all of us will ever dream of having.

Your numbers don't add up at all.
trump didn't inherit 413 million in 1980. He received it over the space of 55 years then the last 170 million ish was in 2004.
He's done well for himself with the help of his dad for sure.

The very rich will always find ways to pass enormous wealth to their kids.

Inheritance

“A football player shouldn’t inherit the starting quarterback position from his father, a former start quarterback. Unearned position and inherited wealth drove Buffett crazy, offended his sense of justice, and disturbed his sense of the universe’s symmetry

“Around country clubs, you hear people talking about the debilitating aspects of a welfare cycle (food stamps, etc.) and how we are perpetuating the cycle of dependency. These same people are leaving their kids with a lifetime supply of food stamps and beyond. Instead of welfare officer, they have a trust fund officer. You shouldnt’ consume more than you produce”

“All along I felt money was just claim checks that should be back to society. I am not an enthusiast for dynastic wealth, particularly when th alternative is 6 Billion people we’ve got much poorer hands in life that we have , getting a chance to benefit from the money“

Interesting Facts
...

On Taxes: “I’d have a higher tax at the higher levels of wealth. Passing wealth form generation to generation flies in the face of a meritocratic society”

It would be unfortunate if a meteor came down from outer space and hit Mr Trudeau in the head. I know it doesn’t make much sense and is far fetched but it aligns with his ideology. It is his fault this virus is killing Canadians. It is also the health ministers fault the virus was let in. I’m not sure this women is qualified to tie her shoe laces but I’m sure just there merely because she’s female.

Where did you get that idea from? You jumped to a conclusion.

I provided the alternative viewpoint to yours from someone with an incredible amount of wealth and obviously forethought about passing it on to his kids.

The only opinion I provided is that there are ways around any such estate taxes.

Exactly! Where would I be if my wife didn’t regularly tell me that I was full of it.

Like my dad used to say that single people get crazy ideas because they only have themselves to argue with.

Default General Flynn

General Flynn enthusiastic about Trump win. He is angry, particularly with MSM, and tech communication groups. Next few weeks are important for America. About 30 minute interview.

He's not a convicted fellon? What were his crimes?
Please read his whole story and case before responding.
Don't forget the same fbi that arrested Flynn are the same losers that illegally spied on Trump.

He withdrew his guilty plea and stretched the case out long enough so that Trump could pardon him after he lost the election. Two points;

If he didn’t lie to the FBI then why the guilty plea?

A pardon does not expunge a conviction but you could make an argument that I overstretched by referring to him as a “convicted felon”. So by all means I will amend that to say “felon that tied up his legal case long enough to be pardoned by a corrupt president and his attorney general before his conviction was completed”.

Happy?

Why was Flynn investigated? Why arrested? How did the fbi get an admission of guilt?
What did Flynn actually lie about?

An unlawful conviction doesn't make anyone a felon

I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

Haven’t liked Trump since the 1980s (from my readings on him back then) and don’t trust him to this day.

Agreed with some of his policies.

As for beating taxes, that’s fine if its done legally. In Trump’s case everyone has reason to doubt that his tax planning was on the up and up.

They want you to believe that Trump was the enemy, and celebrate his removal. But it's really about control, and giving up your freedoms willingly. Democracy has been hijacked by the MSM and Big Tech thru virtue signaling and narrative control (censorship). Trump may not have been the most ideal to stand up to the establishment, but better men either don't care to stand against it or dare not. It boggles the mind that any mention of impropriety in the US election is struck down so quickly by general public who have everything to lose if true. https://twitter.com/KanekoaTheGreat/...37417003323394

“ ...impropriety in the US election is struck down so quickly by general public who have everything to lose if true. “

Recall that the same happened in 2016 before the election. Trump said it was rigged and everyone in the media said no way.

Then after the election the losing tribe kept trying to say there could have been improprieties and the winning tribe said no way.

Also recall that the DNC seemed like it rigged its processes against Sanders.

Most likely was this year as well. Sanders had more supporters it seemed, Biden wasn't a standout in the DNC debates. Tulsi Gabbard would have been the best candidate for the Dems if not for the internal shenanigans to discredit her. Even Hillary was throwing punches at her. Makes you think everything is pre-planned.

If anybody thinks censorship and news control isn't happening, then carry on.

Was reading the highlights today from the planned spending, this kind of stuck out:

The Fiscal Stabilization Program provides financial assistance to a province facing a year-over-year decline in non-resource revenues greater than five per cent. Up to now, the maximum a province could receive under the program was $60 per person.

Lol.

Liberals to spend $100B to jolt post-pandemic economy after posting record $381B deficit

It was predicted 6 years ago Canada would achieve 3rd world status by the time the turd was done spending.

Disagree. Amy Klobuchar was the best of bad lot BUT a chimpanzee would have beaten Trump based on his 4 yr record. No surprises there.

Too bad the GOP couldn't have run a different candidate. Likely would have won without the Trump alienation.
