IRS 2020 Tax refund question.

Mr. Ninga filed our taxes electronically the end of March. We are due a refund and keep checking the Where's My Refund link and it always sez "pending".

Mr. Ninga had it up to his eyeballs and called the IRS at 8 AM today. He eventually got through nearly 1.5 hrs later.
The person checked and said Tax Return was processed and is now in the refund department. Mr. Ninga got transferred to said department and was on hold for an hour and 11 minutes when a human answered. The human said yep, due refund, but we have no idea when funds will be available to process, or in what order given the backlog.

So. Anyone else have this experience?

Yep. France lowers the hammer on anti-vaxxers.

“ French President Emanuel Macron's statement:
“I no longer have any intention of sacrificing my life, my time, my freedom and the adolescence of my daughters, as well as their right to study properly, for those who refuse to be vaccinated. This time you stay at home, not us. "
In France, those who do not get vaccinated will no longer be able to go to restaurants, cafes (from the beginning of August), cinemas and museums (from July 21) and get on airplanes or trains (again from August). Alternatively, you will have to submit a negative test, which will no longer be free (49 euros for the PCR, 29 for the antigen).
Macron then announced the vaccination obligation for medical personnel and for those who work in contact with fragile people. Since September 15, a nurse who has refused to be vaccinated will no longer be able to go to work and receive a salary. "We cannot make those who have the civic sense to get vaccinated bear the burden of inconvenience," Macron said. "The restrictions will weigh on others, those who for reasons incomprehensible in the country of Louis Pasteur, science and the Enlightenment still hesitate to use the only weapon available against the pandemic, the vaccine."
I am aware of what I am asking you," he said, "and I know that you are ready for this commitment. This is, in a sense, part of your sense of duty."

My political life is in a holding pattern much like an airplane circling the New York skies waiting

for clearance to land at LaGuardia.

I keep hearing that a gate has opened and I can prepare for landing, except, it’s only false hope because it never happens.

Lots of gates have potential for opening, but for some unknown reason they never do.

I am in suspended animation. It all started with “Fitzmas”

Mueller? Comey? Flynn? 2 Impeachment trials? Cyrus Vance? Jan 6? DOJ? Lots of potential no fruition.

I am preparing to work very hard on the 2022 election and will support Democrats in other states.
Until then, if you need me, just check the New York skies over LaGuardia.

Very informative article regarding Covid rates among unvaccinated.


A case study from Washington State.

“These adjusted numbers paint a far less optimistic picture: Washington’s case rate among unvaccinated people is as high as it was in late January, near the peak of Covid infections.”

I'm feeling ambivalent about the truth. If more people know the truth than the people who don't,

and the truth knowers don’t vote, then what good is served knowing the truth.

Chauvin trial question.

Did The medical examiner who performed the autopsy on George Floyd view the videos that prosecution witnesses Testified they watched?

Infrastructure bill debate.

A certain Senator states objections to raising the corporate income tax in the Biden Infrastructure bill.

He says that raising the corporate rate, from current 21% to 28 % is too much!! He objects on behalf of corporations.
That Senator is Joe Manchin D- WV

I will be contacting his office to ask that why he is defending corporations objections to paying their fair share. What’s the deal?

From 1993 to 2018, the corporate tax rate was 35%. The former president lowered it to 21% in 2018! President Biden wants it raised to 28%. Manchin says no.
Our budget deficit exploded in 1987 when Reagan reduced the corporate tax rate to 40%.

A bit of history regarding corporate tax rates.

1968 53% Hikes paid for Great Society and Vietnam War
1970 49%. Nixon Recession
1971 48% Cut to fight recession
1979 46% Carter Cut to offset high interest rates
1987 40% Reagan Tax Reform Act
1988 34% Cut to fight recession.
1993 35% Clinton Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
2018 21% Trump Tax Act goes into effect

Somebody needs to do an end-run-around and talk directly to West Virginia voters.

1. Has Sen Manchin been truthful about the coal industry not coming back? Has he talked about it or avoided it or made statements that sounded like it could, would, should?

2. How has supporting guns and being anti choice put food on your table? Has it gotten you a skilled, well paying job?

3. Did you know that West Virginia is in the top five of states taking the most Federal Assistance?

4. Did you know that Sen Manchin is not sure a $15.00 minimum wage is such a good thing?

5. Did you know the Blue states pay more in Federal taxes then they receive back. Did you know the Federal money flowing into your state comes mostly from tax payers who are Democrats?

Ack! Shut up Cruz! Icky creepy Cruz speechifying about AG's under previous Democratic


Such a repulsive creep.

OMG...McConnell REFUSED to call the Senate back before Jan 20, and SPECIFICALLY stated he

would REFUSE to accept the House Articles of Impeachment before Jan 20.

Give him the hook, pull the coward out of the Chamber.

Disgusting. Mc Connell is the evil version of Eddie Haskell.
