Tommy must know a lot more about investing then anyone else I have ever known.
I am not trying to dis Tommy but he is a Trump hater so it is what it is, but I only care about my money, not who is POTUS. And the Biden admin has financially ruined this country in a little over a year.
Facts are facts nobody cannot dispute the numbers, and let's not even get into inflation and everything else that is complete shit right now, but hey the Dems will still blame Trump. :ROFLMAO:

I believe I posted my investment return paperwork for everyone to see. I can put up a graph showing the past 5year fund results. I am in a conservative fund with 50% bank/insurance allocations.

I’d talk to my professional about moving some things around if I was losing that much. But here’s the thing, like I said before, it’s ups and downs and ups again that set trends and you have to be patient. And I’ll say this right here and now. If you’re investing crypto currency your just throwing your money away. That is a gamble and the house has all the odds.

The only thing I hate about Trump is his mouth. I could tolerate him a whole lot more if he’d just shut up.
I don’t give two shits about who’s president either, I too only care about my money.
See we do have things in common.

Agreed, but don’t forget he was never a politician.

Let’s face it. All politicians are wealthy and represent themselves. Trump was no different. He gave himself a humongous tax break and working guys like me lost tax deductions. My interest deduction from my mortgage was capped at 10k, my 4k dues write off was taken away. For most W2 wage earners they lost $$. You can argue about a strong economy or stock market, but people can’t spend that at the grocery store. Now that we’re paying more because of inflation and tax breaks are gone we’ve fallen even further behind. Meanwhile the Biden’s and the Trumps of the world benefited greatly.

They all just fucking suck.
The Fed standard deduction in 2018 was 24K filing jointly (up from previous years). If you had deductions exceeding that you had the option of itemizing.

I did itemize. My mortgage interest on our primary and second home was over 20k, it’s now capped at 10k under Trumps tax law also my union dues (4k) write off was taken away as well. That was something he specifically targeted because of his hatred of organized labor. The rest of our itemizations would put us well over 30k. Work clothing (I have to wear flame retardant clothing, boots) and use specialized tools, write offs were taken away. The wife gets a 1099 and her business write off are gone.

For the average couple, especially with kids, the standard deduction is probably ok.
I paid just south of 45k in federal taxes alone last year. I’m pretty sure there are VERY wealthy individuals paying less or nothing in comparison. I’m all about paying my fair share but damnit, it should be a little fairer across the income brackets.

We’ve had this convo, you and I, many times before.

Many times? Link?

Did your wife use the 20% off pass through business deduction? If not, you guys must be high earners which dems typically argue should pay higher taxes.

LMAO did you guys see now they are claiming Elon sexually harassed a Space X flight attendant in 2016 and offered to buy her a horse for a massage

Dumbest people on Earth.

As if we didn't know the make up game and the blame game would instantly start.

I can't even believe how stupid these people are for even trying this.

We’ve spoke about this a few times, I’m not going to search for any link.

Funny though, I knew it was a matter of time before someone made the high earner democrat response. Last year I paid $44,675 in federal, $16,545 to the state on $240,275 income. I actually got a small return from the state ($435) that I will have to declare as income next year on the federal return although that money was already taxed. I don’t have figures on FICA ( I maxed that out by July) SDI, Medicare or the other taxes I paid. I withhold over $1000 in federal every week for 45 weeks of the year, two weeks are unpaid vacation and the other 5 goes to property taxes. My wife is a 1099 and she pays those taxes separately. Her business was a drop in the bucket last year.
So I’m not a “high” (over 400k) earner that democrats are targeting and I’m not average (80-100k) earner that the tax code is fashioned for. I’m in the group that does some of the heavy lifting.

All politicians rely on us to pack that load.

I’m getting off topic in this thread, sorry. I’ll put it to bed.

The IRS only allows the pass through deduction on businesses if AGI is less than 330K. Its their definition, not mine. None of this is an attack, I'm trying to understand.

Are you fiscally conservative?

I appreciate your input, I really do, I’ve taken no offense brother.

Fiscally conservative? I believe so. I think this country wastes way too much money unnecessarily if that’s what you mean.

Elon had true “fuck you” money.

And doesn’t have to concern himself with false allegations. In fact, these ppl should worry he doesn’t come after them and make them liable for lying in an effort to hurt him.

He isn’t running for office.

Or a judgeship.

He is safe.

Yup, Biden is 10x worse, and who really cares about that part. It's the tanked economy, the anti-white woke-ism, the fake racism, but mainly the "WORST ECONOMY IN HISTORY".
I disliked Trump as a personality when he was on TV, his TV show. Then when I lived thru the best economy in my 55 years, and the way he pushed back to the pampered elite and sacred the "old boys club", I liked him.

Worried about what he said (mean Tweets) vs. best times in my life financially, yeah, you have to be a pussy to whine over that petty stuff while things are amazing economy-wise.

This admin has ruined all that is good, corrupt CCP traitor puppets. (And dumb as a bag of rocks).

Sometimes a liberal is liberal on social issues but conservative fiscally. Its defined differently by different folks but at the end of the day it's kind of a mix of two ideologies.

Makes sense. I’m a social moderate and fiscal conservative, not liberal about much of anything except the amount of bourbon I pour in the glass.
Kind of a subspecies, if you will.

Thats Trumps doing though. HE keeps it alive to retain relevance in politics.
If he decided to not run or influence other elections you’d never hear another word about him.
Ya know, kinda like most past presidents.
this is bullshit and you know it. they would attack him for the next 5 years if he died today. they know the majority like him, and the only way to get the vote back is attack him

If you are already a billionaire and you goal is control of information, not becoming the biggest billionaire, $43 billion isn’t going to motivate you. It is the power of control that gets you off.
Exactly. Elon is just a frontman for DARPA tech.... and no fucking hero or savior of free-speech. Smfh
People are so desperate for a hero they buy them with blinders on.
