America, cnn.com, and Funny: People Who Complain that the Tax Cut Made Their Refund Go Down Twelve dollars please Your change is eight dollars Price We've reduced Your change is one dollar. the price! Nine dollars please What?! Last year I got eight dollars ba ck! e peed to repeal this price reduction!! Unbiased America SEN. KAMALA HARRIS AND THE DEMOCRATS' INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST CLAIMS ABOUT LOWER TAX REFUNDS by Kevin Ryan Today is tax day, and many Democrats (and the media who carry their water) have been complaining about lower tax refunds, as a way to insinuate that the tax cuts have economically hurt people because refunds are lower. Sen. Kamala Harris tweeted that "The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year. Let's call the President's tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%." To understand just how wrong her statement is, compare paying trip to the your taxes to a supermarket. If your bill is $12, and you hand the cashier $20, you get back $8 in change. Now, if the supermarket reduces its prices, and your bill is $9, you can $10 and get a dollar back in give the cashier change. Sen. Harris claims that you are WORSE off in the second scenario because you got less change back. Even though you saved $3. That's how intellectually dishonest she and all those headlines deriding lower refunds are. She seriously believes people don't understand how tax withholding and refunds work. And maybe her constituents so here's a brief primer: don't, Every time you receive a paycheck from your employer, a certain amount is taken out of it and given to the government to pay your federal Ideally, by the end of the year, all the amount withheld from your paychecks will add up to exactly what you income tax. owe in taxes. If you paid to0 much during the year, the IRS will send you a refund. If you paid $10,000 through withholding and your actual tax only $9,000, you will get $1,000 refund. In other words, bill is you gave the government a $1,000 interest-free loan and they Whether you withheld too paying you back. are now much or too little does not change the total amount of your tax bill, it just changes how much change you get back from the government.

Starter Packs, Control, and Quiet: Artists trying to capture very vague problems and details under the lens of beauty, but never being fully able to grasp them. Can anything I look at become a painting of my own design if I put my floaters over it? Or will the randomness/lack of control that comes with the floaters make everything I tried to create with them lack in artistic merit? Is art about choices or chaos or some perfect combination of the two? The way that dust moving under light adds fluidity to significance. Can anything become incredible if you shine a light on it in a certain way? Are things that we perceive as incredible secretly specs of dust beneath the color and the Eye floaters light and other things that impress us? Tinnitus Is it a condition, or just the buzzing of a quiet room? Can you compare the two? Can you make a comment on whether Is the ability to look straight through someone in a glass reflection confusable with the much more valuable silence actually makes a sound or if it's just the human tendency to make grasping the concept of nothing a little easier by putting something slight between you and it? (emotional) way to do so? If glass represents clarity and seeing through glass helps you understand the world around. Then, shouldn't it do so in more than just a physical way?

Birthday, Crazy, and Dad: My dad growing up didn't care to learn to shoot, outside of boyscouts. He didn't like that I had a mosin nagant... but he thinks my AK is really cool and within 5 minutes of seeing my Cz 75 said "You need to teach me to shoot this. The problem is I foolishly showed him some slow motion videos of crazy handloads for shotgun shells on youtube. The next day he took me to walmart and told me to buy every kind of shotgun shell possible for my shotgun and to buy large quantities. I end up with 50 rounds of 2 and 3/4 inch buck, 50 rounds of 3 inch magnums, a shit load of slugs and a fuck ton of birdshot. Then we go out to the desert and he has me fire the rounds one at a time to observe the shotcap. He takes all the birdshot and then tells me I can keep the rest. He took the rounds of birdshot to the garage emptied the shot out and took apart a few shells. Once he brained out how the wad and shotcup worked, then the handloads began... Metallic sodium canister shot? Hits water and then BOOM! Dragon's breath? Shit nigguh, he makes tons of it, and unlike the crappy $5 a pop shells this shit actually starts fires like crazy because he puts sticky shit in it to hold clumps of burning magnesium together? Bolo? Fuck bolo, he just took small chain and coiled it up inside. He calls it THE DEATH NET He also realized he could use the pressure of a blank to launch shit, so he bought a separate barrel and built some sort of ghetto Chechen grenade launcher to fire shit out of. He took a 3 inch shell, poured the shot out and used the wad and powder to fire a tennis ball at me, it missed and put a massive dent in my car. He took it camping with him and took a pot shot with the helicopter tours. He's also loaded shotgun shells with confetti for surprising people. show his friends, road flare at one of I bought a Remington 887 to give to him on his birthday, once he figures out what NITRO MAG means, and that 3.5 inch shells give him more fucking around capacity it will mean my poor little Norinco can go back to normalcy while he tries to see if he can get a shotgun to fire wooden stakes to hunt vampires with. I was terrified when he was playing borderlands with me and got a shotgun that fired acidic shot. He just put down the controller after melting a dude and went to go pour through his various chemistry journals, occasionally cackling maniacally. Theres a certain amount of fear and pride when you are hiking with your dad and suddenly you hear a boom and a squirrel runs past you while on fire..

My first kiss was with a girl when I was 18. I am bisexual. Just because I have been married (briefly) to a man or have had children by male partners does not mean I am not bi. Just because I'm bi doesn't mean I'm confused. Just because I'm bi doesn't mean I'm "almost" gay. Just because I'm bi doesn't mean I'm any less monogamous or into threesomes.

It's a real identity We are here, and no one's opinion is going to make me gay or straight or not bi.

It's designed to give you back your energy, improve health and improve sleep transformations, but, with no information to work out how they've achieved these results it's hard to accept at face value.

Places like rest stops, stairwells, trains, parking lots, waiting rooms, airports feel weird when you're in them because their existence is not about themselves, but the things before and after them. They have no definitive place outside of their relationship to the spaces you are coming from and going to. Reality feels altered here because we're not really supposed to be in them for a long time for think about them as their own entities, and when we do they seem odd and out of place. The other spaces feel weird because our brains are hard-wired for context - we like things to belong to a certain place and time and when we experience those things outside of the context our brains have developed for them, our brains are like NOPE SHIT THIS ISN'T RIGHT GET OUT ABORT ABORT. Schools not in session, empty museums, being awake when other people are asleep -all these things and spaces feel weird because our brain is like "I already have a context for this space and this is not it so it must be dangerous." Our rational understanding can sometimes override that immediate "danger impulse but we're still left with a feeling of wariness and unease. Listen I am very passionate about liminal spaces they are fascinating stuff or perhaps I am merely a nerd. cbulldog09 , for one, appreciate your passion for liminal spaces and thank you for explaining it to the rest of us
