@Patrick - I recall in the past there was a way to see different aliases if a user changed their name. Anyway to reimplement that? Not going to point out specific people, but I can identify at least 4 in this thread that have changed their username multiple times. Not sure why that would be necessary. Been enjoying my summer and not spending a lot of time here, but when I come back and everyone has different names it's a little confusing.

Regarding the OP. The tax situation is way more complicated then people even understand. Certain rich people will enjoy a nice windfall come tax time. Others (IL, CA, NJ, NY, etc) will take a beating if they're high income and high property tax individuals. The intent of certain portions of the tax bill was to hurt certain high income people, in specific blue states to get them to flip to the other side. There's nothing else to this. The rich in the blue states will make up a lot of the reduced tax revenue for those that got cuts.

No, that's wrong. There is much more to the tax law than that.

You are welcome to respond as long as it’s not a non sequitar. In the meantime you should probably stop mouthing off with the lie that Trumps tax cut is for the wealthy.


No, that's a fact.

While some non-rich do get a small break from the Trump tax cuts, the VAST majority is going to the wealthy.


By the same logic, ending communism would benefit the rich more than the poor. Accept the facts, eh comrade?

The idea for getting rid of it was to get people to read past the username and actually look at the point the user is making.

Maybe it should be possible, but slightly difficult?

Not sure what "the same logic" is. In true communism there is no rich and no poor, so your point is moot.

But, regardless, nobody is proposing Communism so who cares?

How so? Feel free to point out how the wealthy in the states I list won't pay more in federal income taxes. I'm not talking about people making $150k either. More then that. The wealthy in blue states (high income and property tax ones) are going to take a bath most likely when filing in early 2019. It's a drop in the bucket for most of them, but many will pay more due to the $10k cap. This isn't wrong and if it is, show me the way (Frampton).

What you say isn't wrong, it's incomplete. Implying that's all the law does is what I say isn't correct. The law does much more than just penalize blue states (many of which have already designed their own workarounds). The law basically borrows $84T from future generations and gives it to the top 1%.

Totally understand and get the motive behind it. Problem is that when you put someone on ignore and they come back with a different username (email as well) it sometimes can be hard to identify the person. There's a reason they were put on ignore. There's no perfect solution obviously, but the fact people need/want to change their usernames speaks volumes to that type of person.

If you can't stand behind your history of posting here, then you probably have bigger problems. I tend to try and avoid those types of people. It's generally anonymous after all here, so I just don't get it.

I'll chime in--I have changed usernames. Once I forgot the password to the email account it was tied to because I no longer used it so I just created a new user here. After that, I created new users because moderators kept stifling free speech and killing my posts because I dared speak the truth about the moderators.

But isn't that what blue states have been saying-rich have to apy their fair share?
