Re: Tax plan raises taxes on liberal states and lowers them for the rest.

As a matter of fact it is greatly disputed whether this will cut taxes for anyone except the rich and many think it will create huge deficits. So, again, likely not even wrong. It depends on the growth rate. The higher the growth, the lower the deficit. Nobody knows how the economy will be doing in...

Re: Trump Support Does not get you Moore

So despite Trump's support, Moore loses in Alabama. Moore, in true Trumpian fashion, has petulantly refused to concede. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/roy-moore-doug-jones-alabama-senate-race-democrats-republicans/article37311424/ Where's your God now Moore?

Re: Singapore establishment feels threatened by the exercise of democratic rights.

Or, could it be (as I suspect) that you resent the relative success of a predominately non-Caucasian commonwealth nation over that of yours and others? Jesus, what a lazy ad hominem that was.... I'm open to any other explanation for seeing so many threads here degenerate into anti-Singapore screeds...

Re: Tax plan raises taxes on liberal states and lowers them for the rest.

So it's "ingenious" to use the tax code to punish entire regions that don't agree with your politics? I think it's petty and rather stupid. Of course it's not true, so not even wrong. When the Republicans crafted the tax reform bill, they had to ensure the budget deficit don't increase by more than...

Re: Singapore establishment feels threatened by the exercise of democratic rights.

Very well cassowary. I will concede here that I may not have known all of the relevant facts in this case. Thanks for informing me. Thank you Neverfail. You have always been a gentleman and pleasant to talk to. I do know that even though these people did not have to come to Singapore and did so in ...

Re: Singapore establishment feels threatened by the exercise of democratic rights.

neverfail - What's with this incessant stream of attacks on Singapore? Could it be based on: 1. A belief that Singapore treats its migrant workers so badly vs international norms that it needs to be chastised? 2. A belief that Singaporeans are so repressed by their government that they live downtro...
