on: Weaponizing the IRS and Treasury Dept

Congress is attempting to subpoena the tax records of our current president, Donald Trump. Anyone receiving more than a simple paycheck knows how complex the IRS code can be – which was created by Congress. Finding fault will not be difficult when anyone who deals in multiple properties is examined.

But is this a good idea? Who is perfect in all things? Will future presidents face a requirement for perfection in their IRS tax returns? Will a potential good presidential candidate defer from running?

The Gig Harbor Times believes the both democrats and republicans will clobber any future president with IRS tax return attacks if congress is allowed to continue badgering the president about tax returns. Do we really need a future full of income examination attacks on future presidents? When will it stop?

NO DRIVE DAY

Imagine one day per year, then one day/month then one day/week!

This post is dedicated to the idea that we can have one day this year to not drive our fossil fueled cars. It should be a legal holiday in the sense that all fossil fueled cars are required to stay off public roads and highways. (Electric vehicles, public transportation and emergency services excluded.) Oct 10th is just a suggestion.

No Drive Day can be repeated until companies provide electric vans to pick up employees, employees take mass transportation or carpool with electric vehicle owners or work from home.

Industry and business will be against this and pressure congressional representatives with a thousand reasons it won’t work.
Will politicians do anything about it? Could they? Can you? Pass it on.

A tear jerker movie but no relation with gun violence?

Have you ever watched a “tear-jerker” movie?  Where do they get that name?  Is there a relationship between watching a “tear-jerker” and emotions?

Of course there’s a relationship.  That’s why it’s called a “tear-jerker”.  Yet we are repeatedly told that there is no relationship between movie violence and gun violence.

How can this be?  Do they mean that video and video game violence doesn’t influence the watcher’s emotions?  Yet certain videos produce a “tear-jerker” response?

Does the video content not affect young watchers or (young participants in video game violence)?  Is TV not saturated with gun violence?  Is the 5-o’clock news not always broadcasting violence, death or molestation?

Do you think that there is no relationship between video, video games and gun violence?
