Feel like an idiot...

I kept not looking at this because I thought it was the beginning of some kind of strange wildlife joke using wildlife as political metaphors.

Finally looked at it and these are some incredible shots that people rarely can get. Awesome.

Most likely sheer incompetence

The City of Alamo heard nothing from the Trumpies because the intent was probably to go to The Alamo which is in San Antonio's downtown.

Other things wrong with the story. Guarantee you there's no airport adjacent to Alamo, TX that could handle AF1.

Anyone know how to access the flight plan? That would tell us where they think they're going.

Dear god, please be over soon. These idiots are wearing me out.

"lose" not "love"

Iíve explained this to many Rs when they were going on and on about the great Reagan 1986 bipartisan tax if 1986.

If you stayed in the same bracket (as I did) your taxes went up sharply as you had lost most deductions that were available to the unpropertied. If you were really unlucky you jumped brackets (with $0 income gain) due to the collapsing of the number of brackets from 15 to 5.

But those with higher incomes saw huge double digit tax decreases which dwarfed any loss of tax deductions. Oh, and this real property owning demographic saw the value of the home ownerís mortgage deduction increase.

It was this arithmetic dichotomy that came close to causing two different fights between me and my substantially better off good friends.

Many of us got screwed but some of us made out like bandits because the top marginal rate dropped from 50% to 35%. And, most likely, this same demographic also saw themselves pushed into a much lower starting bracket.

How to post an OP in the Right place

iíve been told a number of times that the replies Iíve made on other threads would be better if they were their own opinion pieces.

iíve been a lurker since the year 2000 and have posted a few replies to threads that I find compelling.

I know how to create an op. What I donít know is how to put it in the right place.

iím sure thereís an FAQ somewhere. could someone provide a little guidance.

thanks in advance.
