Actually, running the numbers, it looks like our taxes will be pretty close to what they were last year. But it's complicated figuring it out. We might save $, but it won't be much. If we do, it feels bad saving it off the backs of universities, college students, and the housing market.

You can't pay taxes if you're below the poverty line

Uh, what? The Houfi "rebels" are in control of the country and the missile was Yemeni tech based on Russian and North Korean designs. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volcano_H

They've literally launched about 100 of these at Saudi Arabia over the past year.

So, to summarise:

- not from Iran
- not given to randoms
- not significant
- not an ICBM

Saudis have troops in Yemen fighting the Houthis. They’re blockading Yemeni ports.

This is just the Houthis getting a little more bold than usual

With another mass shooting occurring at the exact moment the pause-for-non-politicization-of-the-tragedy of the previous mass shooting ended, the discussion on gun violence in America will need to wait.

Also, the irony of offering thoughts and PRAYERS to victims of a mass shooting in a CHURCH is not lost on me.

And hopefully anyone else.

a lot of shit went down today, so to recap for those that haven't seen it

Paradise Papers-
https://www.thedailybeast.com/massive-l ... ed-kushner
Among the Trump administration officials implicated in the leaks is Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who according to the documents concealed his ties to a Russian energy company that is partly owned by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s judo partner Gennady Timchenko and Putin’s son-in-law, Kirill Shamalov. Through offshore investments, Ross held a stake in Navigator Holdings, which had a close business relationship with the Russian firm. Ross did not disclose that connection during his confirmation process on Capitol Hill.

Another disclosure that Kushner left off.
Top White House adviser Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, is also implicated. The documents reveal that Russian tech leader Yuri Milner invested $850,000 in a startup called Cadre that Kushner co-founded in 2014.


Word that Mueller has enough evidence to bring charges against Flynn and his son-
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/mu ... on-n817666

And to lighten things up.
https://www.9news.com.au/world/2017/11/ ... ean-menace
The two then shared a meal of American beef, passing up the region's famous Kobe beef. Mr Trump ordered his beef "well done" and drenched it in tomato sauce.

What's the point of discussion? Obvious a vocal minority (if it isn't a majority outright) is okay with this as the cost of doing business. It will be forgotten in a week.

A conspiracy theorist friend of mine is convinced that every single mass shooting is carried out by the CIA.

"So why is the CIA doing all these shootings?"
"Because they want to enact gun control."
"But this has been happening for decades, and nothing has really been done about gun control."
"Yeah, because the NRA lobbies congress to prevent that."
"So the CIA can successfully carry out all these shooting (and 9/11, and every other terrorist attack), but they can't overcome a lobbying group?"
"Uhh, yeah I guess so."

I know a Muslim guy from work who is Clayton Bigsby-tier when it comes to conspiracy theories - he'll ramble on about how the CIA is funding and training ISIS via Al-Qaeda and that the resulting refugee crisis is actually part of an NWO plot to replace Europeans whilst turning the middle east into a barren wasteland so Israel can have the entire region to itself. Big Trump guy as well somehow
