Tax Time is Bye Bye Trump Time

As predicted, as soon as people start filling out their tax forms, they realize, if they did not understand before, that Nazi Trump's election sales pitch of "helping" the average person was simply a billionaire enrichment scheme so that Billionaire Nazi Trump could steal from the National Treasury to make himself and his cronies richer, the only reason he had to run for office.

See the quotes from: “Trump Voters Explode After Realizing They Are Getting Screwed by The GOP’s Tax Plan” “I trusted you!”” by Brad Reed of Raw Story, 2/5/19 at

For those of us whose tax refund is about the same, we still have to fill out the new Schedule 1 if we have a simple bank IRA, the poor person’s tax shelter, and then subtract Schedule 1, Line 36 from the 1040 Form, Line 6 and enter the new figure on Line 7. As to Line 8 on the 1040, for those of us who are seniors, we have to use the Senior Deduction Worksheet in the 1040 Instruction Booklet and be sure to use the bottom section which is for seniors who are NOT dependents. Clearly, Nazi Trump and his cronies were trying to steal what little they could from those of us who do not make enough to itemize deductions.

The name of the game is always money and the presidential race is always a referendum on the economy. We still have 50% poverty, meaning half of Americans cannot provide $2,000 within 30 days for an emergency and 80% of Americans live from paycheck to paycheck, including the 50% in poverty. Absolutely no problems have been solved and all problems are simply getting worse. The Trump Tax Scam is certainly the nail in the coffin for the Trump presidency.

As to the Democrats, we are still waiting to hear about a repeal of the Trump Tax Scam by the Democratic majority in the House. We are still waiting for Improved Medicare for All, formerly known as HR 676, which no longer exists since that number was used to promote support for fascist, imperialist NATO. Roll Call 44 on January 22, 2019 shows that Democrats and Republicans supported NATO including Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Barbara Lee, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib in a 357 to 22 vote. See http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2019/roll044.xml
The NATO Support Act is described at https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/676/all-actions?overview=closed&q=%7B%22roll-call-vote%22%3A%22all%22%7D

The destruction of Improved Medicare For All is more fully described at:
“Single Payer Gold Standard HR 676 Rest in Peace” by Russell Mokhiber, 1/22/19 at

When you consider the leadership of the Democratic Party, such as San Francisco Rep. Nancy Pelosi, were not among the 124 (of the 218 that were needed) to support the old HR 676, we can expect the revised Healthcare Bill to be much less than what we need, namely the same free medical care that the entire Congress, the president and his cabinet receive courtesy the taxpayers.

Only Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party call for increasing the taxes on the rich for everything with the progressive income tax, especially the 11 million millionaires and 585 billionaires in the USA, so that we have free medical and dental care (and all other related healthcare services) for all who live here regardless of citizenship status, free prescription medicine, free abortion on demand, free preschool, free childcare and free university education in addition to top quality free grade school education for all, affordable housing for the workingclass defined as the 80% of Americans who sell our labor for less than $80,000 a year, with the homeless being housed first and finally, free massive public transportation including free tax service with taxi drivers on the public payroll, abolition of the military which only exists to maximize the profits of the oil companies and munitions makers so as to transfer the trillion dollars a year the Democrat-Republicans together give the military to all of the health, education and social services departments, abolition of the prison-punishment system, legalizing drugs to end the prison pipeline, abolishing the death penalty and much more.

You can change your party registration to either Peace & Freedom Party or the Green Party, the only 2 pro-labor, pro-socialized medicine, peace, pro-environment parties. You can register online at https://registertovote.ca.gov/

US economic statistics are dubious since financial markets are based n financial products and money out of nothing unlike productive investments in the real economy. Tax havens, micro-second betting on the exchanges, stock buybacks and corruption through lobbying are all market distorting. Only the super-rich can profit from these manipulations!
Happy are the post-materialists who don't race from store to store! The GDP measures everything except what makes life worth living (RFK).

Uniting the country means funding and not punishing HUD, Meals-on-Wheels, Pell grants, the Depts of Education and EPA, The Legal Corporation, food stamps, after-school programs, Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Trashing everything progressive is the bitter fruit of pathological narcissism and pathological paranoia. Sledgehammers and wrecking balls cannot replace domestic policy and infrastructure investment. Fear-mongering and scapegoating cannot substitute for building a multipolar world and enforcing the UN Charter prohibiting war.
