    Right, but the media brainwashers who feed them this garbage certainly know these things. I can only guess that they're giving the ignorant what they want in order to keep butts in the seats. At some point you'd think that even the dumbest bot would stop and go, "....wait a minute...."

    I always wonder about that. I see Antiques Roadshow or American Pickers and they say, "this rusted hulk of crap may look like a rusted hulk of crap you'd have to pay someone to haul away, but I'm going to do nothing to it and mark it at $12 bazillion dollars." Really?

    I think the value is determined combined by the buyer and seller. Someone has to PAY 12 bazillion dollars, not just be charged it.

    And let's think about a "gift tax", while we're on the subject. You own something of value; you give it to someone else; and you're supposed to pay a freaking tax on it??? *You* pay a tax on something you give to someone else? What kind of ####ed up crap is that? If the recipient paid, that would be one thing, but how did we allow a law that requires us to pay to give something away?
    You're just too stupid and selfish to know how to live your life and figure these things out for yourself.
    Because, after all:

    I guess it must have been a long time ago because as I understand it, the recipient would pay taxes anyway, right?
    I don't know what the laws were like a hundred years ago or so, but I am supposing this somehow made it harder to just give your money to your heirs ahead of time.
    Avoid inheritance tax by having a gift tax.

    Taxes and death, and I'm not so sure about death anymore (:whitewalkers:)

    I mean, the Rose Law firm records just "appearing" on a coffee table long after they'd been lost or unable to be found seems to be along with "you mean, with a cloth?" kind of stunt or "we were just talking about our grandkids " kind of innocent story.

    I think ultimately I am going to be pissed if people end up being jailed or prosecuted because of their testimony without an actual crime having to do with anything.
    I don't get how that happens.
    Which is why I don't understand all the bitching about the mueller investigation. I know that most of you somders were in favor of Star investigating the hell out of clinton, and if slick willie hadn't lied Star would have had nothing. All trump and his people have to do is not purger themselves and they should be fine, as long as they didn't commit any other crimes. If they did commit crimes we the people should know about it.

    :derp:

    I don't if any of the tax evasion claims are valid, but one thing I certain, the state determines the value of real property for tax purposes. You can sell it for whatever you want, but the tax value is determined by the tax assessor.

    You'd think. But we have, right here in the form of Sappy, all the proofs to the contrary.

    Mention of that would get Sappy in a romantic mood.

    "Based on New York City property records, Trump paid $13,000 in taxes related to the two sales, which indicates that he didn’t treat the transactions as a gift and likely didn’t pay those taxes. And, as the attorneys further explained, this could lead to fines or even possible jail time.

    Willful failure to file a tax return, including a gift tax return, is a misdemeanor, punishable by a $25,000 fine, imprisonment of up to one year or both. Fraudulent failure to file — meaning an overt act of evasion — may elevate willful failure to a felony. That carries a fine of up to $100,000, imprisonment of up to five years or both, along with the costs of prosecution."

    OMG, the LIVES he's put at risk.. the COLLUSION with the enemy!!

    ISIS will THRIVE on this, and many lives will be lost because there MAY have ben an error made on his selling a condo to his SON!!

    The circumstance in which it was put into place - a political vendetta by a disgruntled FBI Director. Comey and Lynch had months to assign a special counsel. Comey admitted that he leaked his memos to spur on a SC. Not because he really felt it was needed - because if he did, it would have been done long before he left - but because he was pissed about how he was raked through the mud by Trump.

    This is where we are... our government isn't doing things with an honest desire to get to the truth, they are doing thing out of spite and self-preservation.

    This is still the thing that kind of pisses me off. There's no fire - there isn't even smoke. There isn't even suspicion of smoke. There's nothing.

    I mean, try to imagine - let's say - someone was trying to accuse you of being a pedophile. No evidence mind you. No "smoke".
    Just a lot of people saying that's who you are. After months of saying dammit, there's NOTHING to go on, they start calling in people.
    They start checking everything you and your associates have EVER done, including just about anything imaginable and having nothing to do with the original idea.
    Somewhere along the line - someone's story doesn't quite jibe with the others. PERJURY.
    Because sooner or later, someone's story ISN'T going to be 100% copacetic.
    You or they go to jail.
    The original investigation - there was never a crime.

    And that sucks. It sucks that you can go on a search FOR a crime, and end up nailing someone because they failed the *process*.
    Without there ever actually BEING a crime.

    The news - well, the conservative news - is all atwitter with the name Scooter Libby.
    The ORIGINAL intent was to find out who outed Valerie Plame - which turned out to be Richard Armitage and they knew that before they began -
    but they got some poor scapegoat on a technicality. I even heard conservative radio ridicule him (i.e. Jerry Doyle).
    But dammit, I'm tired of endless scrutiny JUST TO SEE if someone messes up.
    Investigate crimes - stuff where there's evidence.
    I'm tired of the truth of the phrase "in this town, you can indict a ham sandwich".
