Bad: must turn in for the night! Bloody but bloody tired!

I´m a Brit, love the US, entered the country three times in my youth illegally, got a Social Security Number, paid tax on illegal work in two factories ( got a tax rebate from one of them) ..loved Route 66, hitchhiked and stuff and stories galore and that young woman in the mini-skirt at the tables in Las Vegas and stuff...two of my greatest friends in world  history, Tom ( from da Bronx and Armenio from Monte Vista, Colorado )--sigh, both dead. GREAT friends and I basically have fond memories of the  US and the spirit.

 

PS: I was really clever in those days!!! :lol::lol:

Shame I´ve deteriorated!!!

John.. you are sounding more and more like J² with all these stories....   :ph34r:

Why should I? You want to move to ...say Norway and pay 90% in taxes so that the government can control your life?

 

Hi There, ex Norwegian here

 

Current  tax rate is  23% on ordinary income in 2018, lower for those in Troms and finnmark (19.5% )on top of that, 

The top tax rates are as follows for 2018: ( so called top skatt, not to be confused with Trinn skatt) 

 

  • from NOK 169 000 : 1,4percent
  • from NOK 237 900: 3,3 percent
  • from NOK598 050: 12,4 percent
  • above NOK 962 050: 15,4 percent.

Employee’s social security contribution is 8.2 percent of gross income.

 

Sooooo .. for those earning over a million Kroner, the  personal income tax rate would be 39.4% plus 8.2 social security = 47.6%

 

That is of course not taking into account Fradrag ( Deductions )

 

As someone who has earned way over  a million NOK yearly in Norway in the past  I can personally tell you that I never ever paid more than 50% in personal income taxes and frequently paid a lot less due to Fradrag ( deductions )

 

BB, you are full of it,  nice try, no party balloon for you :D

 

Perhaps you should go back to the Gab forums where folk believe your BS

Convicted? Go to jail. Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200. Race has nothing to do with it.

 

 

“Black Americans were incarcerated in state prisons at an average rate of 5.1 times that of white Americans, the report said, and in some states that rate was 10 times or more. The US is 63.7% non-Hispanic white, 12.2% black, 8.7% Hispanic white and 0.4% Hispanic black, according to the most recent census.”

 

“the reasons for the racial disparity were problems in policy, implicit biases and structural disadvantages.”

 

You’ll be happy to note that this was reported during Obama’s presidency.

What was the rate in the Gulags? Did it make a difference? Still thinking about becoming a Communist?

It's interesting.  Here: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/apr/03/identity-theft-racial-justice is the account of a woman who kept getting the tickets of other women who shared her name.  She said that a lot of the tickets, walking through a park after hours, broken headlight etc. were things that she as a white woman would have gotten a warning for at the most while a black woman living in a poor neighbourhood would immediately get a ticket for the same offense.

Shep Smith, the only voice of sanity at FOX News, calls out Trump's cynical rabble-rousing for what it is, a mid-term election ploy.

 

Quote

“There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There’s nothing at all to worry about,” he said calmly on “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Monday.

“But tomorrow is one week before the midterm election — which is what all of this all about,” he added.

Smith tried to calm the public about the caravan shortly after President Donald Trump again referred to it as an “invasion” and U.S. officials announced that an additional 5,200 American troops will be deployed to the border by week’s end, The Washington Post reported.

 

I really wish everyone would stop playing with this troll now. The people in charge might use it to shut the thread down just like they did when RF got pissy about the fake account thread.
