OCCUPY PROPERTY…

By David Vance On June 18th, 2017

A few days ago, Labour cult leader Corbyn suggested that private property be .. in his words, “requisitioned”.    He has doubled down on this again today by adding;

Mr Corbyn told ITV’s Peston on Sunday: “Occupy it, compulsory purchase it, requisition it – there’s a lot of things you can do. “But can’t we as a society just think, all of us, it’s all very well putting our arms around people during the crisis but homelessness is rising, the housing crisis is getting worse and my point was quite a simple one.

So, private property is no longer safe from this geriatric Marxist. He and his pals will force you to hand over your property to them if they decide the circumstances are correct. It’s important to realise that Labour in 2017 offer you an alternative to democracy. That is the core point to reflect upon. When Corbyn used the word “occupy” it was a wolf whistle to the Ultras in his “movement” and he knows it.

  1. The kiddies thought they were voting for Dumbledore. But now he’s had an encouraging result we see the real Corbyn, and it’s hardcore revolutionary communism.

    Not that we keep trash out of my respectable village, but if any of his bum fans tried to occupy my home they’ll be soon occupying a hospital bed. I heartily encourage all decent people to firmly deal with any scumbags egged on by Corbyn.

    Some people say he’s the likely next PM. The way he and McDonnell are going, they’ll be arrested for incitement first. On Peston this morning he encouraged illegal acts.

  2. Homelessness, in this country anyway, is a complex issue

    And the price and availability of housing is only one of the factors

    Mental illness, drug/ alcohol abuse, family disputes, people who simply don’t want to work in a structured work environment is would all in my opinion be much more significant factors than the availability of housing

    And in places like the UK, immigration has reduced the housing supply for the legitimate population. Every place given to a ” migrant ” is a flat denied to a British person. We’ve made this last point a number of times before.

  3. Unfortunately 40% of the UK ate utter fuckwits and voted for this kind of thing.

    If he took power it will cause such divisions thete will be riots.

    Momentum and the Corbynistas are a virus that needs wiping out.

  4. Homelessness in the UK is driven entirely by mass immigration, and the high birth rates of non-European immigrants. Corbyn certainly knows this.

  5. Allan 1059

    I doubt that very much

    It surely is a factor in driving up rents and reducing available spaces in social housing, but no serious person can say that it is the sole cause

  6. He has doubled down

    He is copying the Trump playbook. Toxic has successfully doubled down many times over the past few years. You make a nakedly populist appeal to your base and when your opponents cry foul, you double down on the populist appeal.

    You guys have lapped this up with Trump. So stop quit whining when the same tactic is used against you. What goes around comes around. Get over yourselves.

  7. Phantom – population is the driver of homelessness in a country where development is restricted by low availability of land. The British population is not replacing itself and there would be a gentle decline – and then replacement-level immigration changes everything

  8. Yes but you have always had homelessness there, just as we have always had it here

    No honest person can say that the significant immigration is not making things worse, but homelessness is something that I have observed all my life here and I bet you have always seen it there

  9. I think we should place requisition orders on all MP’s second London homes, paid for by us, to house the Grenfell Tower homeless.

  10. Homelessness cannot be attributed to one or two factors. As mentioned above, alcohol and drug abuse are just some of the reasons. Another, and this may surprise some, is the simple fact that the homeless do not get a vote. No vote, no interest from politicians. So the problem goes ignored. But what if say those living homeless in Westminster (London), and I have seen many, where to be able to vote and decide the outcome in elections in certain places, what then ?

    Politicians do not want to visit the problems they have caused.Better to blame someone or something else or, preferably, talk about something else.

  11. Thoughtful contributions, Phantom

  12. Homelessness is an issue that Phantom nails perfectly. It is a multi layered issue whose number one contributing factor is drug abuse, at least here in the states.

    Homelessness is nothing but a canard though.

    Pete mentions the real problem but passed briefly over it. In both the US and the UK communism has taken root so deep that it endangers us all.

    Corbyn is a commie and could very well be the next PM, Obama was a Commie and was President for 8yrs.

    The Left are communists. You can dispute it all you want and call it whatever you want. Communism as practiced throughout History is GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF EVERYTHING. And they have bought their votes in both our societies by trading people things for their freedom and liberty. They have changed the definitions and lied to the children in their entire education.

    Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by doing exactly what Corbyn is doing. Given welfare recipients everything they can by stealing out of the pockets of the working.

    No one is entitled to a Check, a House, Healthcare, or even food. You are entitled by GOD the FREEDOM to succeed or the FREEDOM to FAIL.

    The man, woman, or company OWES you nothing. Half of both of Governments believe with all their hearts that they have the right to take from one and give to another AS THEY SEE FIT.

    That is Communism. And it doesn’t work, but because the people have been lied to and taught false facts for the past 100yrs they don’t see the Tyranny.

  13. Homelessness is indeed a multi faceted complex issue comprised of many many factors and Corbyn does have a kind of point when there are 200,000 properties lying vacant in England.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/house-prices/200000-homes-sitting-empty-england-worth-total-43bn/

    Incidentally, fair play to the civic minded builder who postponed the sale of his properties in order to accommodate the homeless of Grenfell Tower for free. It-s a pity that the response to this generousity by Tory controlled Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council was despicable less magnanimous.

    https://skwawkbox.org/2017/06/18/kcbc-if-you-accept-temporary-flats-youre-off-rehoming-list-grenfell/

  14. The man performs an act of charity and they threaten those that accept…..

    200,000 properties lying vacant in England…… Who do they belong to ? Not the government.

  15. “200,000 empty properties”

    Yet..

    The latest net migration statistics show that in the year ending December 2016, net migration to the UK was 248,000.

    https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/statistics-net-migration-statistics

  16. one has nothing to do with the other Harri……

    If there are 200,000 empty properties each property is OWNED by someone…. They are not there for the government to hand out as they see fit no matter how many immigrants flood in.

  17. Here you are Harri :

    https://www.logicallyfallacious.com/tools/lp/Bo/LogicalFallacies/136/Non-Sequitur

    Sleep soundly, your Crown is still safe.

  18. Troll.

    I agree, but hypothetically speaking, even if those properties were owned by councils, the figures don’t add up.

  19. If there are 200,000 empty properties each property is OWNED by someone

    How do you know that none of those 200,000 empty properties are not owned by Councils or Housing Trusts Troll?

  20. Paul’s gone all depressed again. 😉

  21. Corbyn is straying into very dangerous territory with his remarks

    The Castro regime confiscated houses, and forced people to take in tenants in what they claimed were underused properties, and such practices helped build the economic misery that is Cuba today.

  22. I agree, but hypothetically speaking

    Then, hypothetically speaking, why are you bringing it up?

  23. Harri, you really should stop inventing online personas for people when you’ve nothing to say.

    It’s vulgar and unbecoming.

  24. These empty properties in England are owned by people who are in Tuscany, Majorca, Sardinia, the Aegean……. the well-to-do ‘liberals’ mocked daily by realists at ATW. Those properties should start to be seized by the government and handed to immigrants – and then immigration will be halted. Does anybody believe that Polly Toynbee would allow her London home to be seized while she’s in Tuscany?

  25. If we have 200,000 empty homes, and 248,000 people arriving each year, Where are they going to live Sherlock? 😉

  26. I don’t know that Paul….. Why does does your government own housing?

    This is also a feature of communism that has been weaved into the American society over the past 100yrs.

    The Government has no right to OWN Property.

    If you have 200,000 vacant properties and they are owned by the Government the fact that they sit vacant shows mismanagement through government ownership.

  27. Paul.

    Cheer up.

  28. Segue

    The government of New York City is hostile to landlords.

    In any landlord-tenant dispute, the landlord is presumed to be wrong in housing court.

    As a result, lots of small and not so small apartment owners decline to rent certain flats. They leave them empty, use it themselves, etc. They’d prefer to lose the income that have any potential of adversarial dealings with the city

    Fact.

  29. Every government in the world probably owns rental apartments.

    Including the very conservative/capitalist governments in Hong Kong and Singapore

    Nothing in the world wrong with it, it depends on how it is done

  30. Because the Government doesn’t belong in Housing Phantom.

  31. The government of New York City is hostile to landlords.

    That’s surprising Phantom.

    Why is this.?

  32. Well managed government schemes have been hugely beneficial to lots of countries.

    Singapore under the great Lee Kwan Yew got the slums demolished and built respectable flats for their low and middle income workers.

    This was one of the foundations of their current great prosperity and orderly society

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_housing_in_Singapore

  33. Harri

    Because there are many tenants, and few landlords.

    Local government has long been anti landlord.

    It has had many perverse effects, including getting developers to only want to build expensive luxury condos, rather than middle income rentals.

  34. Cheers Phantom.

  35. off topic….. can anyone recommend any of these stations or suggest a couple…. ?

    Those are some very local stations.

  37. ccwifi reciva radio….. are they worth adding to my listening list?

  38. You’d have to ask one of the locals

    When skimming past some Irish radio stations like those a few years ago, I got the impression that they were very local-oriented, serving a rural audience, and not necessarily of interest to someone not of that area.

    A lot of the music being generic European/American stuff that you could listen to anywhere.

  39. what I would really like to find is a NI News Talk Station.

    A Local/national like WOR, WPHT, etc etc

  40. If we have 200,000 empty homes, and 248,000 people arriving each year, Where are they going to live Sherlock?

    Perhaps you’ve forgotten about private rentals, housing associations, charities etc ‘Sherlock’

    Not every single thing in the history of the world revolves around emigrants. Those are vacant homes only and not those available for rent, sheltered accommodation, charities, housing associations etc.

    Paul.
    Cheer up

    Harri,
    Wise up 🙂

    The Government has no right to OWN Property

    Troll, the Government has a ‘right’ to do what they propose to the people who elect them to do however if you really want to argue about Government ownership of property in your own country regarding federal, State, County buildings, National Parks, military establishments in your own country before you start on anyone else’s?

  41. Paul it is an ongoing major Political battle in the US over the Government OWNING Land. It is a battle that has been going on since 1832.

    What the Government can and can not do is spelled out in the constitution. It can execute Eminent Domain but that is supposed to be very limited and very controlled.

    Government has a ‘right’ to do what they propose to the people who elect them to do

    No in this country they really don’t. That is mob rule. The Government is VERY Limited Legally to what it can and can not do.

  42. Paul it is an ongoing major Political battle in the US over the Government OWNING Land. It is a battle that has been going on since 1832. What the Government can and can not do is spelled out in the constitution

    Yeah, in the US.

    Surely the fact that it’s been an ‘ongoing battle’ for almost two hundred years would suggest that it’s not a cut and dried issue?

    No in this country they really don’t. That is mob rule. The Government is VERY Limited Legally to what it can and can not do

    What is the process for Constitutional amendment?

  43. The rest of the world does not spend their months and years studying every fart of the Founding Fathers.

    Government can and should do anything ethical that the governed want it to do.

  44. Paul, a constitutional amendment must pass both Houses of Congress and then be passed by (I think) 2/3’s of the state legislatures. It’s a high bar to pass.

  45. Government can and should do anything ethical that the governed want it to do.

    Not according to our constitution. As Troll has rightly said, the Federal Government is limited to do only what is enumerated, and anything else is left up to the States.

    Speaking of the constitution, today is June 19th, “Juneteenth” in Texas. Blacks celebrate the day that word got to Texas June 19,1865, that slavery was over.

  46. The Constitution can do anything the Supreme Court says that it can do.

    Things like the EPA, FDA, USDA, FAA, SEC, federal minimum wage, federal workplace protections,Social Security / Medicare, and a lot more are never going away. Even during the tortured, accidental and perhaps short lived regime of Crooked Trump.

  47. True Phantom, Activist judges have made it so. Damn Marlbury v Madison!

  48. The country is much better for all of the above.

  49. Not according to our constitution

    I don’t know Charles.

    From this outsider looking in you petrol tanks seem to have endless centuries hours of fun arguing over interpretations of what a bunch of foreigners thought two hundred odd years ago thought should apply to the world today.

    And that is called the ‘New World?’

  50. Since 1789 and counting!

  51. Paul

    For some of these guys, the Constitution is their Koran, and they spend every minute of every day thinking about it.

    The weirdo Senator Ted Cruz memorized every word of it as a youth, which tells you all you need to know about Ted Cruz.

  52. I have a pocket Constitution! 🙂

    I also have a copy from 1846. My first wife said I liked it so much because slavery was still legal. :/

  53. Good man Charles.

    But you’re no Ted Cruz.

    That’s a big compliment, bro.

  54. Thank you Phantom, and Ted Cruz is no Texan!

  55. I can’t wait for that summit.

    Don’t forget to visit 🙂

  56. It fails me to understand how a document written two hundred XXX years ago can be applied rigidly and accurately in a modern societal context.

    You Yanks and your crazy Yank ways!!!

  57. The US Constitution is the unerring source of wisdom on the internet, drugs regulation and on aviation policy.

  58. It’s because you don’t understand the Constitutional Formulae.

    The Document has been twisted over the years but it is a very simple system that works when applied.

    The Supreme Court has become an aberration of what it was designed to be. The system works inspite of how much it has been twisted over the past 200 some odd years. Those that decry the document like Phantom belittle it because they don’t understand it, they don’t understand why it was designed the way it was, and they understand even less how our society is supposed to work.

    All of our rights come from natures creator. Governments throughout the History of Mankind have used force and tyranny to take away and control those rights. Our system was designed to make it as hard as possible to restrict the rights that we are born with.

    The Power structure of our Nation was designed to flow from God, to the individual, to the State, to the Federal State. With the Power diminishing as it goes up the line away from the individual.

    There are still enough Americans that understand this.

  59. Troll, all your understanding and systems won’t make your creator apply a document written over two hundred years ago to things that exist today which did not exist then and, by extension, a world so different it would be unrecognisable.

    And, judging by the seemingly endless disputes you Americans seem to love having over interpretations of this document Phantom isn’t the only one to allegedly not understand it.

  60. Paul your lack of understanding of the document screams from your comment.

    There are NO things…. no advancements that can effect the structure that the document sets up.

    It is designed to control where the power and decisions that effect our society are made. Over the past two hundred years corrupt men have tried to change that. The power belongs in the hands of the people not in the hands of a central government.

    The never ending fight is to prevent the power and the decision making from EVER being placed into the sole hands of the government. The greatest attack on our rights and our Liberty since our nations founding was and is Obamacare which is why it led to a revolt that removed 70% of people that were in office when it was passed.

    No modern invention of ANY KIND has ANY effect on the Constitution and the system that was setup.

  61. Troll

    What does the constitution have to say about aviation policy

    Do you think that each of the 50 states should have their own right to control aviation

  62. Obamacare, worse than slavery (orginally sanctioned in the Constitution).

  63. Obamacare was a reinstatement of slavery.

  64. Your perspective is a thing to behold.

  65. thank you

  66. and the war gets hotter…….

    Russia has said it will treat US warplanes operating in parts of Syria where its air forces are also present as “targets” amid a diplomatic row caused by the downing of a Syrian jet.

    The country’s defence ministry said it would track US-led coalition aircraft with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down.

    A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.

  67. The fact that your opinion on the Constitution seems to be in a minority with your fellow countrymen here doesn’t bode too well for your claims.

  68. well how do you figure you have Charles, Me and probably Patty vs two NYrs.

    Looks like my views are shared by the majority of Americans at least where the Constitution is concerned.

  69. Troll

    Try to get some schmuck to run for president on a platform of getting rid of Social Security and Medicare. Let me know how many phones you get

  70. -votes-

    On a platform of getting rid of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid

    I’m sure you’ll get up great many votes

    Bring back elder poverty! ( which was widespread before Social Security came about )

    MAHA! Make America hungry again!

  71. Phantom…….

    Who is saying anything about SocSec or Medicare?

    You use scare tactics on the rabble not on the educated…. The Constitution is the basis of our society. Contrary to what you preach it is not only relevant it is still the keystone of all our Laws.

    So excuse witness everyone the foam at the mouth reaction from the left that Phantom provides us…. Oh God he wants to follow the Constitution….. See he’s gonna end SocSec and Medicare, he’s going to kill old people….. Pure hyperbole nonsense yet that is where he went.

    Scare tactics, fear mongering, it’s all they have.

    Both Social Security and Medicare were created using the constitutional system…. will of the people baby…. but the ignorant and the ill informed believe people like Phantom that when someone says you have to follow the constitution you want to kill old people.

    How sad and dishonest.

  72. Well I’m very glad that you agree that Social Security and Medicare are constitutional

    Back in the day, you guys didn’t say that

  73. Ron Paul has called Social Security and Medicare unconstitutional

    And he also called them slavery – The same term you use to describe Obamacare

    See, you and Ron Paul are the same thing

  74. http://www.rawstory.com/2011/05/ron-paul-compares-social-security-and-medicare-to-slavery/

  75. Err, I don’t think so.

    He expressed concern for those living in the 24-storey block who may have been living in the country illegally or without bank accounts.

    ‘What about these people, many of these people will already be victims of illegal subletting. Now they will be victims twice, they might not want to come forward for the money in case they’re scared of getting caught. There needs to be an amnesty so people can feel safe.’

  76. Phantom,

    Yes but you have always had homelessness there, just as we have always had it here
    No honest person can say that the significant immigration is not making things worse, but homelessness is something that I have observed all my life here and I bet you have always seen it there.

    Sorry I’m a bit late to this thread. I just like to say you’re spot on with this comment Phantom.

  77. Phantom,

    The US Constitution is the unerring source of wisdom on the internet, drugs regulation and on aviation policy.

    Spot-on with this one too.

  78. Corbyn, and the rest of his loony Marxist trots, want open border immigration.

    Where, and how are they going to house them?.

  79. Ron Paul is kook and a conman that sucked up more graft and corruption than most members of congress could ever dream.

    SocSec and Medicare are Welfare for the old and sick always were. I support safety nets. I have always supported safety nets, and you have for 17yrs always acted as if I don’t no matter how many hundreds of times you have been told otherwise.

    You constantly try to put me in with the Ron Paul/Alex Jones wacpac and that ain’t ever been my gig.

    SocSec and Medicare are taxpayer paid welfare programs they should be means tested and readjusted because they are both bankrupt. Obamacare is Slavery because man, woman, and child are by the mere fact of being alive forced to buy a product or be penalized by law.

  80. Social Security is and always has been both an insurance and a welfare program

    You want to make it more of a big government thing, where the majority who have paid into it over a lifetime would get nothing out of it. That would be a great economic crime against most working American families

    I mention Ron Paul because his arguments against the constitutionality of Social Security are every bit as valid as your arguments against Obamacare. Neither has any merit whatsoever

    When I see comments like this I want to both Laugh and Cry. It demonstrates how deep the lack of understanding in what the constitution is and how it was designed to work at a level that is wrong down to the atomic level.

    Does the foundation of a building dictate the type of rug used in one bedroom? According to the two of you it should.

  82. Troll

    Does the Federal government have the right to govern aviation policy in the US, or is that a usurpation of the legitimate powers of the 50 states?

    Please explain why it is yes or no.

  83. Wrong Phantom

    You want to make it more of a big government thing, where the majority who have paid into it over a lifetime would get nothing out of it. That would be a great economic crime against most working American families

    That is exactly what it is. The majority of the people who live off of SocSec never made more than $40,000 a year. If you make less than $50,000 a year you pay NO TAXES including socsec. You get every penny back come tax time and if you make little enough they give you back more than you ever paid in with the EIC.

    People like you and me before I got sick should not get SocSec. It was not my plan, I know damn well it’s not yours.

    Use my case as an example. I have used NO GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE as of yet. Instead I have sold off every asset I have acquired over my life. My Savings, My investments, My Property, My Toys, I’ve sold everything I owned to keep the lights on and feed my kids. And I have shamefully received charity from my family, friends, and church.

    I don’t say this for sympathy, I say it proudly. It is not my fellow citizens job to keep my family afloat if I am capable of doing it myself. Now the money and the property have run out. I am disabled to the point that I can’t work and will never be able to do so again it’s killing me more than the disease.

    I have had to apply for socsec and I am ashamed but it is a WELFARE Program and to continue living I need it, but this was not my plan. I didn’t expect to need the safety net.

  84. If you make less than $50,000 a year you pay NO TAXES including socsec.

    Completely incorrect. A person earning 50K pays Social Security tax as does his employer.

    A hotline set up between Russia and the US to prevent mid-air collisions will also be suspended.

    and Troll gets harder……

  88. Trump and Putin had better not do anything stupid in Syria.

    It will be very easy for this horror to get worse.

    You would hope that there are smart and stable personalities in the US and Russian militaries that can stand up to civilian idiots as need be.

  89. Ok Phantom everybody pays taxes and the rich don’t pay their fare share….. the spin just keeps coming…..

    I didn’t earn a single dollar last year I paid no taxes yet I got a check sent to me by the treasury after I filed my taxes…..

    You can put all the links you want. It doesn’t prove anything. No one who makes under 50 pays taxes, they get back from the government more than they put in. You don’t have to believe it, but 100 million people in this country are glad it works out that way.

    You should expand your reading.

  90. as for Syria……

    The Russians are pushing, but wait there is no chance that the US and Russia will shoot at each other and Putin can do what he wants…. Trump is Putins Puppet.

    Isn’t that what we are to believe?

  91. Nope.

    Please stay away from all discussions involving numbers. Numeracy is not your strong point.

  92. The two military superpowers both have bad leaders. Especially the US.

    That’s not helpful.

  93. You would hope that there are smart and stable personalities in the US and Russian militaries that can stand up to civilian idiots as need be.

    That is a very scary statement.

    Phantom wants two of the Largest Military’s in the world to over throw their civilian leadership…. to ignore the orders of their elected superiors.

    Yeah that’s worked out well everywhere that happened.

  94. I said stand up to, not overthrow

    The US has an emotionally unstable short attention span drama child as president. We can all agree on that.

    Mattis has been able to deal with him, so far. Let’s hope that this continues.

  95. Russian fighter jet just buzzed an awacs within 5 feet and the US just shot down an Iranian Drone.

  96. I think Troll is talking about the earned income Credit, which gives you money back depending on the number of children you still have at home. You can actually make $0 in income and get a check back from the government.

    The benefit, from Phantom’s tax bracket link, shows that a married couple with 3 children at home making under $50,000 gets a check.

  97. You need to get past your personal hate for Trump. It has clouded your judgement on multiple issues.

    The Russians are not going to fire on American assets period.

    Russia is blustering that’s it. They got something they did not have. An AirBase in the Middle East.

    They know damn well if they shoot down one of our aircraft we destroy that base. Their ONLY airbase in the Region. Obama’s weakness and Collusion with the Iranians gave them the strategic asset that they wanted and never had. They are not going to jeopardize it.

  98. Wars can start by accident.

    Or partially by accident.

    I don’t like that Russian and US aircraft are flying in anger in an uncoordinated way under these circumstances. I don’t like this at all.

  99. Well how do you figure you have Charles, Me and probably Patty vs two NYrs

    The two NYers, Mairin, (another NYer), Daphne and I’d suggest NYer himself?

  100. That’s all fine but very many individuals and families with income up to $50,000 pay federal and state income tax, and virtually all of them pay social security tax.

  101. Your Holy men in Black Robes just handed down a unanimous ruling that the government can’t stop you from trademarking an offensive name….

    ie you don’t like the name redskins too bad, don’t watch the team but other than that get stuffed.

  102. The movement against the ” Washington Redskins ” name is led by white trendies.

    Most American Indians are fine with the name.

    and other than sales tax Phantom they get every penny back.

  104. No – they – don’t

    Some do, many do not.

    An individual or one income married couple making $50,000 will pay income tax, state tax ( in most of the country ) and they will definitely pay SS tax

    Instead of bullshitting without any knowledge, call an tax accountant / financial planner if you know one or call the IRS or your state tax dept.

  105. It’s just nice to see an honest free speech ruling.

    A band calling themselves the “Slants” the members are oriental in heritage were denied trademarking their name because the government said it was offensive. It is the same Law they used against the redskins.

    The First Amendment Protects ALL speech the more offensive the more protected.

  106. The First Amendment Protects ALL speech the more offensive the more protected.

    Actually no it doesn’t but it sure as hell protects more speech than any Euro laws do.

    It does not and should not protect child pornography, explicit calls to violence, ever.

    Beware the use of the term all.

    There are pretty much no unrestricted rights in any part of the world, nor should there be.

  107. Phantom,

    I don’t like that Russian and US aircraft are flying in anger in an uncoordinated way under these circumstances. I don’t like this at all.

    Correct. Situations like these can start wars.

  108. Phantom you got any first hand knowledge on your tax stuff?

    You’re a single man that earns over six figures (god bless you, and be proud). Your are in finance but what experience are you basing it on?

    You are not a Personal Income Tax expert.

    Regretfully My family income dropped to that Level and I live in one of the heaviest taxed states in the country….. for the past two years we got back more than we paid in Local/State/Federal and SocSec.

    I’m talking from first hand experience….. you’re not.

  109. I don’t like that Russian and US aircraft are flying in anger in an uncoordinated way under these circumstances. I don’t like this at all.

    That is another amazingly ridiculous statement.

    Neither the Russian nor American Aircraft are flying in anger uncoordinated. That has got to be the stupidest thing ever said on this site.

    Both the Russian and American Fighters will fly right at each other pass each other within inches and neither will fire without ORDERS!

  110. Troll

    You remain wrong on all points

    Please contact a tax guy and tell me what he says about social security tax for starters. Shouting and yelling and blogging does not make your point true.

  111. The US and Russian militaries are not coordinated in Syria.

    The US is not always coordinated with the NATO ally Turkey there.

  112. Oh Ok Phantom you as usual are right from on high…..

    You are the all knowing GOD of Taxes for those earning under 50grand. You have Omnipotent understanding of all. Taxes, Guns, Republicans, The Tea Party, Global Warming, Elections, ETC ETC

    Please oh all knowing great one….. answer one question.

    How did Hillary Lose?

  113. This statement……

    is quite different than this one….

    I don’t like that Russian and US aircraft are flying in anger in an uncoordinated way under these circumstances. I don’t like this at all.

    The first that the russians and americans are not coordinating between each other is correct.

    The second saying they’re flying in anger uncoordinated sounds like the air is filled with pissed off pilots on their own missions.

  114. My comments on Russia and US lack of coordination are correct. They don’t differ. I never said that pilots were doing whatever they feel like.

    A low income worker, including say a high school student that earns $5000 in a summer job, will pay FICA tax.

    And things like Earned Income credit don’t apply to FICA tax – only to federal income tax.

    Don’t argue with me- the IRS they will confirm what I told you about FICA ( Social Security ) and federal tax.

  115. I never said that pilots were doing whatever they feel like.

    yet that is how your poorly worded comment came across as
    flying in anger…..

    and that kid will have paid 600 in fica and will get back that and more Phantom when he files his return.

    you don’t know everything about everything dude. Your views and your opinions are just that, Your views and your opinions… they are not facts.

  116. No.

  117. yes…..
