So the National Republican Congressional Committee wants to flip 55 democrat house seats in 2020 using a message of Socialism vs Freedom.

The freedom to get fucked by corporations, that is.

Politics and Government / Re: Tax Cuts and Jobs Act question.
« Last post by DarkPhoenix on February 12, 2019, 07:12:04 pm »
In 2027, if the tax cuts are paid for by spending cuts borne evenly by all families, after-tax income would be 3.0% higher for the top 0.1%, 1.5% higher for the top 10%, -0.6% for the middle 40% (30th to 70th percentile) and -2.0% for the bottom 50%

Does that mean that the lowest income workers will be owing more in taxes by 2027 than the highest income workers who will receive a three percent hike in their income?

Yep.  This was the Republican plan all along; it slightly drops tax rates for everyone for a short time (but as you're seeing from the screaming people, thanks to erasing certain deductions and capping others, that may not be the case for everyone), but after 2021 the tax rates start INCREASING on the poor and middle class, maxing out in 2027.  And don't think that 2021 date is a coincidence; they picked that date SPECIFICALLY so that if there's a Democratic President, they can start accusing him/her of raising taxes - despite it being THEIR tax bill doing it!

Incredibly sexy. It may burn the urethra, but by god is it worth it.

Somewhat stealthily groping a Japanese woman on public transport.

The Lounge / OPERATIONAL ADMIN NOTICE: Forum Domain Change
« Last post by Kradorex Xeron on February 11, 2019, 05:13:19 pm »
Hello all,

There is currently an ongoing issue with the "fstdt.net" domain name where due to bad domain name system (DNS) records, the domain periodically does not resolve correctly if at all. This issue has been ongoing for the past several months, becoming more severe recently. This is due to an issue with another hosting company (not Digibase, the organization that hosts the forums) that currently holds those records.

I am not currently able to perform an update of those records.

With this in mind, to improve forum accessibility I have used Digibase's own domain name and provisioned a subdomain (forums.fstdt.digibase.ca) to enable users to bypass the issue I described above. You may access the forums exclusively through this address as convenient. If you are in contact with anyone who is having persistent problems who may not be able to see this notice that you know uses these forums, please distribute this address to them.

Thank you.

What do you mean remains?  Have you seen how many people figured out that the Tax Scam bill from last year fucked them over?

Ironbite-they'll be lucky to hold on to the Senate.
