Pin,
Good call. That was perfect for 0420.

Ben? Ben? BEN???

A man armed with a burly, menacing-looking white rat caused mayhem at a McDonald’s in Newark last week when he released the four-legged creature at the fine dining institution.

When the overweight rodent hit the tile floor, dozens of people frantically scattered as if the rat was out to steal their Big Macs.

No arrests have been made in the preposterous event, but a Newark police spokeswoman said the department is investigating.

I'm reading that some California city is going to pay $500.00 a month in basic income.

Sleazy bastards, how am I going to buy a pack of cigarettes, a six-pack of beer, a meal and my drug of choice with that?

I need more than that, where am I going to crash? And a woman. I deserve a woman.

I have a constitutional right to a woman. The Supreme Court ruled that I can marry anyone I want. What if I just want to diddle them?

No? I want a sheep for an emotional support animal. Never mind why.

(Re the ruse of Mueller interviewing for an FBI job he likely could not have)

The white hat theory is that the FBI job story is part of the ruse and that he was there with Rosey and Trump discussing the pending special counsel investigation.

I'm wondering why my man Rocco is still so absolutely certain Mueller was interviewing to run the FBI? It just seems clearly illogical as all get out. It isn't the white hat theory so much as common sense, isn't it ???

I do not understand why Manafort is in solitary confinement. Has his attorney filed any sort of protest? Is his life in danger so that he has to be kept by himself?

Seems to me this is excessive.

Posted by: MissMarple2 | February 15, 2019 at 07:59 PM

He's there, MM, because [1] they probably fear a Seth Rich event happening to him, and [2] he's supposedly lying to protect the big, bad Russian Oleg Deripaska who is probably the key to all of the *real* Russian collusion.

If Manafort has already flipped (and they are allowing the public show of inconsistent lying to help protect him), they need to keep him alive. At least until more money laundering cases, etc., are far enough along in the process for convictions to be likely.

That's my 4D chess opinion.

Ah yes the Old Amtrak days...rather than trying to hop on the back of a train to get a thrill as a kid, I was now an adult traveling with husband & strangers to places I had not been to before ....It had to be one of my first trips from South Station so by the time we reached CT I was feeling bored but still anxious. I had also warned hub to just stick with a cold beer but no.. he didn’t listen. The rum & cokes soon warmed the cockles of this young heart. I glanced about the car seeing my fellow passengers reading, writing, or with headsets on, while my hubby started to snore ... then, suddenly, out of my throat came the spirit of Peggy Lee! As I started to sing a 3rd Sinatra tune I witnessed the magic spread from seat to seat, car to car. Many more voices started to chime in! Our Grand finale was NYNY. I can’t compare that experience to getting bus loads of people to squeal like pigs coming back from the Topsfield Fair but it sure made 4hrs on track a FUN ride.

Section 1256 [the tax section dealing with future contracts] is premised on the doctrine of constructive receipt because the taxpayer who trades futures contracts receives profits as matter of right daily. Id. at 157, 1981 U.S.C.C.A.N. at 256. Under this doctrine, "[i]ncome although not actually reduced to a taxpayer's possession is constructively received by him in the taxable year during which it is ... made available so that he may draw upon it at any time...." Treas.Reg. § 1.451-2(a) (as amended in 1979).
. . .
Because of the unique accounting method governing futures contracts, the gains inherent in them are properly treated as constructively received.

I can't agree with the first paragraph, even if it's part and parcel of prevailing law. Although a futures account reflects balance daily on current value of open contracts, it doesn't afford a greater access to those funds than a margined security account does - both balances allow the investor to borrow down to their maintenance margin levels.

Since it's an apt explanation of why securities accounts should not be treated as futures accounts, it's worth looking at WHY futures accounts are marked to market - I remember when they weren't. Back then, traders could use futures markets to ensure they paid little or no taxes on investment for a year by putting on a "tax straddle" sometime in mid-year and unwinding one side of it on the last trading day of the year and then, albeit with one day's of trading risk, close out the position on the first day of the year.

It worked like this. You're a metals trader and that's all you do - make short-term trades in gold and silver. But come August or September, you'll put on a huge straddle in some market you don't know a thing about, except that the market tends to take long, slow advances or declines in price. And you don't care which. So you buy 50 contracts of, say, next year's March soybean oil while selling 50 contracts of November soybean oil. The margin required to do such a trade is not large, as the position is effectively hedged by being both long and short. In the real non-Wall Street wise guy world, a trade like this is absolutely effective for farmers and processors to reduce risk in their business; for you, though, it's just a way to beat the tax man. So, on the last day of business for the year, you see that you're making $125k on your long May, and losing $138k on your November shorts - it's not even because the difference between delivery month prices will fluctuate due to various market positions. You buy in your Novembers and wipe out a good deal of your profit for the year, and on the first trading day in January you sell out the Mays. In this example the trader has lost roughly 13k, but he's happy to have his tax burdened reduced by much more than that; if the loss side was less than the gain side, it would have just been extra gravy.

So, the feds finally figured this out and made all futures positions marked-to-market. This is so, so, so much different than people holding long-term positions in stocks where they often don't intend to sell ever, leaving their dividend-paying stock to their spouse and/or kids. Trying to tax those gains (or allow deductions for those losses) year by year would be a nightmare, a disincentive to business in that a new and harsh tax system would need to be adhered to, and a general government asset grab (the kind conservatives particularly do not like).

Hi there RG!
I’m still quite amused over what the Dems have exposed just this past week
Nancy needs to go - along with Cortez! And a few others. What’s so scary about them are the many followers who believe their every word as if it’s Gospel. It’s not!
Why doesn’t anyone ever call them on their nonsense?
IMHO the whole lot of those elected females in white who refused to publicly condemn infanticide are a national disgrace!!
We learned Lizzie the Fake lied & despite the actual proof we see no outrage at all. President Trump is the best! but what is up with the inept GOP? Open your damn mouths now & denounce this madness, you idiots! And hey, how about that anti Semite spouting her disgusting crap all over the place without being called on it or sanctioned or removed? How in hell did she or Cortez even warrant slots on important committees? This is so dangerous to our national security efforts!
I think the lot of these lawmakers should be tied up and with each taking turns read out loud their official oaths of Office repeatedly, for hours, or days, or even months until it sinks in & they do their jobs! if not, expel each or they get locked up for sedition! They should share cells in the general populace of any fed penitentiary with Hillary, Obama, McCabe, Peter Poophead, Comey, Clapper, etc. etc., as their primary bitches.

OK. We really miss having you around. How's your health?

MissMarple2

Today it's cold, but sunny, as it was yesterday. (We didn't get that St. Louis snow, thank goodness.)

So, the mayor has 20 crews out doing cold-patch asphalt to potholes (or as the circles I grew up in, known as chuckholes).

This has been the worst year I can remember for these things. My son and I even know where some of the worst ones around here are, and he says things to me like "Don't forget about that big one over on 31 by the Kroger."

Even our poor little street, which doesn't get much traffic, requires weaving back and forth like a slalom skier to avoid them, and we probably won't get patches until late spring.

Manuel Transmission

OL, per your comments about Goldwater, we were living in AZ at the time and were totally perplexed that he didn’t win in a landslide. Who would vote for that lying scum LBJ?? Of course my mom was babysitting his grandkids, so there might have been a little bias.

In later years, I learned that one of my HS classmates earned the privilege of total access to Barry’s archives which were a gold mine (heh) of photos and film of AZ. He produced a series of documentaries from that material.

MissMarple2

Manuel Transmission,

My folks voted for LBJ because he was a democrat (they were old-school dems) and also, my dad had spent his boyhood in Texas.

The only person I KNEW that had voted for Goldwater was Dr. Zurfas, who had a house which sat downhill from the road and on which he had put a big sign on his roof which said "Inflation is evil." LOL!

I hadn't thought about that in years until you mentioned Goldwater this morning.

Narciso79

I compared it to the kobayashi Maru, the announcement was kind of uneventful, the press didnt realize they were hanging off the cliff.

Old Lurker

MM, the only thing I can think is that by declaring the emergency he takes a decisive action that will reassure the base. An "event" in other words. The alternative of just proceeding by moving appropriated money in the ordinary course of business will become background noise so he loses the sizzle.

I remain confused why he didn't veto and force an override (except for the chance that wouldn't occur fast enough to avoid a shutdown but that could have been helped by a one week CR "so we can read this thing...") My concern is that there will be 1,1067 places for litigation in those 1,107(?) pages of Dem Drafted Law, and as the case moves through the courts, the argument is going to be that a POTUS has EmO powers but only as limited by laws, and, your honor, just today the POTUS signed a new law which takes those powers away as to a wall because P.496, 603,797,1100..."

And signing it bothers some in the base so those worriers will, well, worry.

Another Bob

RG, cracks appear to be developing in the pro-Trump JOM wall.

There is a sense that Trump caved on the shutdown, and that this may be a symptom of a general weakening in his position. (That seems a fair paraphrase.)

Well because these people would screw up a one car parade, the possums are as useless as when Flynn wrote term limits 20 some years ago.

MissMarple2

Old Lurker,

Those two threads posted by Narciso79 and myself seem to indicate that while there is a lot of smoke and noise about the emergency declaration, the other money from the DoD and other sources can be used and construction will continue.

Larry Schweikhart's source says that they cannot file a lawsuit until they actually use the EO money. I am not a lawyer so I am taking his word for it.

What I want to know is why the GOP isn't asking the democrats what possible excuse they have for blocking this. They should be put on the spot.

They know this is a national security issue, which is why they keep saying it's a made-up crisis. Crime statistics and welfare costs tell a different tale. I think they should be questioned repeatedly about this, because as I have said before, I am convinced the democrats are getting money to block Trump's actions, and it comes from the cartels and possibly Iran (LOTS of Middle Eastern people have been apprehended trying to sneak in).

henry

Lurkersusie, part of the problem is no one should trust law enforcement— they are on their own side, not the victim’s side. (This is a simple matter of legal responsibility, not a condemnation of law enforcement per se).

Old Lurker

MM "What I want to know is why the GOP isn't asking the democrats what possible excuse they have for blocking this."

Because they are a division of the enemy army.

Captain Hate, in this article the author says McCabe might be telling the truth about Rosenstein.

I wonder if there is stuff we don't know about which makes people think it might be true. I have no idea. My general impression of Rosenstein is that of a guy who sucks up to whoever is in charge. That may be unfair, but that's how I feel.

Wearing the wire?
A pretty elaborate lie.
Let us see if it holds up.
McCabe is in real trouble anyway you slice it.
He seems determined to paint his part in the coup as one of a concerned citizen.
Don’t make me laugh.
He was mad as hell that Hillary lost and saw his whole spy plan going up in smoke.
I am willing to bet he instigated the insurance plan.

Rosenstein is not a person to be trusted.

Buckeye

Somebody needs to make book on whether AOC or Omar is first to have an "accident" with an exercise machine.

The Infamous Ignatz

One of the reasons we don't tax unrealized gains is because they aren't static...and because they aren't and may never be realized.
How would the system work if one has to pay $1 million in taxes on unrealized gains on say your Sears stock. Thirty years later does the government owe you a check for $1miillion because your unrealized gain is now a realized and irretrievable loss?

And I'm not too clear on when this tax is triggered...or how often it's triggered. People's fortunes wax and wain, are they taxed one year but not the next? Is the tax a once in a lifetime event? It might function as an estate tax but don't we kind of already do that?

How bout instead we spend this energy forcing the Feds to live within their constitutional mandate which will result in a vast decrease in the need for taxes.

The Infamous Ignatz

It seems unlikely to me that the president would not know definitively whether his deputy AG was involved in a coup attempt.
