    The Trump Tax Plan for Individuals

    1. Any government has the right to take money from your bank account whenever it wants. Hence, the idea of government "debt" is irrelevant - as long as people have savings. 2. As a Quebecer, Trump's tax plan was, uh, surprising. I was surprised to learn that - before Trump - Californians could reduce their federal income tax by declaring their Californian state income tax as a federal deduction. Even in Quebec, I cannot declare my federal tax payment as a legitimate tax deduction. ===== IMV, Trump is making America more civilized, like Canada.

    Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    I reckon that Justin, like his father and Mulroney, even Harper, sees the future as better.

    Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

    Justin Trudeau is at 40+ in the polls. Unless he's a weird Hillary Clinton (and she won a majority of votes), Justin Trudeau will be our next federal PM. In 2019, with Trudeau Jnr, I reckon that the federal Liberals will win a majority - despite Alberta.

    As seen on YouTube

    Dick Cheney? Maybe. Whatever. b_c, it's all about eyeballs - and which eyeballs see whatever. ===== Yet, reality exists. There is something we can all touch.

    As seen on Youtube? Argus, wtf? ==== I may have noted/posted this idea before, even in this thread. The world changes: people can now use a telegraph to transmit a message across an ocean.

    Target of virus/hack attackj

    Greg, Charles. Thanks. 1000x thanks. What did you guys do to solve this problem? ====== Make no mistake, this was not "fake news". This was foreign characters.

    WHATEVER, Why is this thread free from Korean/Chinese nonsense? 15/5000 한국어 넌센스 or 16/5000 中國人胡說八道

    Whatever... Greg, in this forum, what you are doing is good for... ... une société civilisée. ==== Yet, you seem to worry about a Just Society more than a Civil Society.

    Greg, As the kids say: whatever. ====== This website makes English-speaking Canada more civilised.

    Zeitgeist, you make it sound so easy. Flippant. ===== I recommend that you travel abroad, visit a few cemeteries - Russia has mostly monuments. Have some empathy. Read a few books. Think.

    Can you describe any successful campaign in Dunkerque? Dieppe? ===== Make no mistake, America won. Because of those young men, those names on a wall in Washington, the Soviet Union no longer exists. And China and Vietnam now use prices to trade.

    Zeitgeist, given your thinking, I fear for our future as a civilized world. ===== The Berlin Wall did not fall because of gravity. It fell because of, among others - parmi d'autres - those guys in Vietnam.

    Donald Trump (in 3 paragraphs)

    The US lost Vietnam in the same sense that Churchill/Dunkerque lost WWII. ===== America won. In Vietnam today, as in China - people use the market system to co-operate. ==== Everyone in Vietnam, every Vietnamese today, owes a tremendous debt to a name on that black wall in Washington. Everyone in Vietnam today knows that America won. But... why?

    Canada's military had little to do with Vietnam - except as a UN player. I was surprised about Australia until I learned about America and Japan and Darwin. ===== Canadian soldiers fought in Korea.
