    I'll take your word for it and wouldn't be surprised. But using this tax refund issue is deceptive and exactly what the dump would do. People are getting lower refunds because the Government withheld less of the more money they received under the tax breaks, which is actually a good thing.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    What does any of that have to do with her tweet? I bet you did benefit from the tax cuts. I’d be shocked if you didn’t. In fact, you likely benefitted at a higher percentage than the 1%.

    Kamala Harris says she smoked weed and listened to Snoop and Tupac years before they released albums

    https://www.thefader.com/2019/02/12/...noop-and-tupac

    Harris graduated from Howard University in 1986 and UC Hastings College of the Law in 1989.

    The debut projects from Snoop and Tupac brought the two previously unknown rappers worldwide renown. Tupac released 2Pacalypse Now in 1991, and Snoop Dogg came through with Doggystyle in 1993. While Snoop Dogg didn't begin recording music until 1992 with Dr. Dre for The Chronic, Tupac started in rap as a local Baltimore act under the alias MC New York in 1987. At that time, Harris would have been studying law at UC Hastings; it seems unlikely that she would have been closely following underground Maryland hip-hop.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Don't take it personally, PAC. He only lashes out at the ones he truly loves.

    bizarre reply to a pretty innocuous jab at Trump's obviously stupid boast of working so hard. I don't think that makes PAC a leftist. Isn't it a little early in the day to be hitting the Jose Cuervo?

    Has SU always been this anti-elitist? Didn't he used to be a patron of the ballet? How did he become so MAGA?

    I am not an enemy of elites. I only disdain some--such as elites who don't care about lost jobs on pipeline termini or at Amazon HQs or that sit in their palatial offices munching on a brioche and wish failure on hard working 19 year old kids. Basically, I love liberty, I want people to be rewarded for hard work and risk taking, and I hate hypocrisy.

    So you don't deny being a patron of the ballet?

    He’s default MAGA. He loves raging on leftists and being edgy.

    That’s because there isn’t one. Your assuming I fall in line with everything and anything Democrats push. I don’t have an opinion on it, sorry to disappoint you.

    I picture you at your desk, quill in hand, writing posts like this and I smile. Though often groundless (as is the case in this instance), smug internet attacks are your art and this is another masterpiece. That you took apparent umbrage at a mild shot about Trump’s work habits is weird, but I suspect you were just itching to unload, so I understand. Glad I didn’t mock his hair, lest I really provoke you.

    In the hope you’ll move on to more deserving targets, I’ll note that you are wealthier than I and I’d guess you hang out with a more elitist crowd than I do. In the past twelve presidential elections I have voted for ten Republicans, one Democrat (Obama, a vote I do not regret, as the thought of a President Palin still makes my right eye twitch), and one independent (I would have voted for pretty much anyone other than Trump). I enjoy George Will’s columns, and my two most recent policy reads (and with which I largely agree) are Jonah Goldberg’s Suicide of the West and The Cato Institute’s Overcharged (a libertarian take on health care that also rips on the idea of single payer). I would never vote for Warren, AOC or Bernie (though I think Bernie has more intellectual honesty than most candidates). But I do loathe Trump and believe that he has caused terrible harm to genuine conservative principles. I’m surprised you rush to his defense.

    You should consider buying the rights to Walter Sobchak’s moniker since, like you, the movie character was always entertaining, even though he was enthusiastically and artfully bashing in the wrong car.
