Almost 40,000 people die as a result of firearm injuries every year in the United States
Biden believes we should work to eventually require that 100% of firearms sold in the U.S. are smart guns
Good luck with that. Any idiot could create a "firearm" from common household items.
Better to pay at the checkout than pay through ever higher taxes.
I voted against it. I hate it when companies carve out exceptions.
NONE of the MSM fact-checked this issue
To be clear, both Pence and Harris also engaged in mild overstatement and rhetorical flourishes at times. That’s normal in politics. Harris, for example, exaggerated the job losses that President Trump’s trade war with China has caused. But Pence was far more dishonest. At several points, he seemed to want to run on a record that didn’t exist.
This is a tough proposition for me. I remember pre-Uber times and constantly getting screwed by regular taxis - if you could get one. Uber/Lyft have opened up transportation opportunities that would not have happened otherwise. Traditional cabs were not innovating and just simply believing that buying a "medallion" was all they had to do. The "old" way was relying on a monopoly and therefore no need to innovate. Very tough call for me.
It means that Apple, Inc has determined that keeping schools close is hurting their bottom line (Steve Jobs widow controls Atlantic.)
Pence dodged a lot of the questions
she kept a man in jail for 6 years for a crime he didn't commit
It's weird that donkeys are spending any time at all on CA voters. The shit is in the bag for them here, so why bother? Is it money they want?
SunnyvaleCA saysIf an engineer with a few years of experience joined Apple 5 years ago, they would have likely seen their initial $250k RSU grant (over 4 years) blossom to $1MM while simultaneously picking up $800k in salary and $200k from the ESPP (employee stock purchase plan).The stock thing could happen, but salaries are nowhere near $800K

richwicks saysI can't think of anything that would work with 5G and not 4G - well, 3G for that matter.That’s more a failure of imagination than anything else. Perhaps I can help: https://www.fool.com/investing/2019/03/20/3-exciting-innovations-made-possible-by-5g.aspx

After all of the banging on about election fraud and discrediting and dismantling the mail system as a method of voting, it's really rich to see the GOP placing their own special ballot collection boxes out in public.AB306 does NOT specifically authorize partisan groups to place ballot collection boxes, that is a stretch of an interpretation mostly attractive to people biased toward a GOP-postive outcome.
the objection to prop13 is typically from folks that "recently" purchased
there's a simple solution, revoke prop 13 for everybody but lower property taxes for everybody proportionally and enact a moratorium on raising them.
So are you saying a reset to a new basis for everyone, or on the property itself "one time"? And then instead of 1% a year you do 2% a year? And when the market goes up 10%
only works if the real estate market reverts closer to a 2% pricing gain in the long run
revenue from the 1 percent property tax rate has grown at an average annual rate of 7.3 percent.”How is that possible?
She got kicked out the moment she spoke about Kampala’s shitty past. It was clear from that moment that debates were a charade, that Kamala was already prechosen. Fuck DNC.
They should imo limit number f times property taxes can be inherited.
Thanks to Mr. Mark Zuckerberg for the initiate
Boomers on average have $920,400 saved for retirement, the Charles Schwab survey found, but expect to spend $135,100 per year
Property taxes are used to pay for public infrastructure. Ever wonder why California has the worst roads in the nation?
socal2 says high black womanDoes it really matter if she was black (maybe she was not even really a she?)?Just asking.
high black woman
Patrick saysCommercial property should not be exempt from property tax increases because businesses can live forever, never resetting their tax basis.Fuck! California already has one of the most unfriendly private business environments in the country. And that's despite Prop 13. Prop 15 will just accelerate the bloat in the most bloated public sector in the US. Don't hold your breath waiting for those trickle down tax dollars to make it to you..

I'm at my 'alternate address', awaiting election day, so that if there's another travel lockdown, I won't be stuck at home, not able to cast a meaningful vote.
