    I am thinking of donating my tax cuts to people such as Bernie Sanders.

    It's not self-righteousness. It's doing what I think is the best for humanity and the environment. If my lack of greed makes you feel guilty, that tells me a lot about you.

    I would like to see, from the idiots on this board, explain how homeowners made out on this particular "tax reform", particularly in California.

    The responses will be predictable, but won't change the current tax schedule ONE WIT.

    If you are cheering for this new tax law, then it is pretty clear where you reside on the ladder in this state.

    And to you I say: "Extra pickles, no onions. MAGA!"

    THE MAGA CHRONICLES

    Trump appointee Carl Higbie resigns as public face of agency that runs AmeriCorps after KFile review of racist, sexist, anti-Muslim and anti-LGBT comments on the radio
    By Andrew Kaczynski, CNN
    Updated 6:19 PM ET, Thu January 18, 2018

    Trump administration appointee Carl Higbie resigned Thursday as chief of external affairs for the federal government's volunteer service organization after a CNN KFile review of racist, sexist, anti-Muslim and anti-LGBT comments he made on the radio.

    "Effective immediately, Carl Higbie has resigned as Chief of External Affairs at CNCS," Samantha Jo Warfield, a spokesperson for CNCS, said in a statement.

    The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Higbie's resignation.

    Higbie, a former Navy SEAL and conservative media personality, was a surrogate for Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, appearing on cable news and serving as the spokesman for the Trump-aligned Great America PAC. He was appointed to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) in 2017 to direct the public image and messaging of the federal department that manages millions of Americans in volunteer services like AmeriCorps and Senior Corps.

    CNCS, formed in 1993, connects volunteers with service opportunities, often in the neediest areas across the country. According to the organization's website, the projects are mainly focused on six priority areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.

    In one of the comments unearthed by KFile, Higbie said you could "guess the color" of a family he described that lived in his condo association.

    "I told this story the other day on my show. Somebody who lives in my condo association that has five kids, and it's her and her husband with the five kids and the mother, the grandmother of the kids, and they don't have jobs, they're there all the time -- I bet you can guess what color they are -- and they have no job," he said.

    The remark is just one of several racist and inflammatory comments the KFile review found. As host of the radio program "Sound of Freedom," on Internet talk radio, Higbie made shocking comments about black Americans, Muslims, women, LGBT people, veterans suffering from PTSD and immigrants.

    THE MAGA CHRONICLES

    Trump Lawyer Used Private Company, Pseudonyms to Pay Porn Star ‘Stormy Daniels’
    Michael Cohen created limited liability company just before $130,000 payment
    By Joe Palazzolo and Michael Rothfeld
    Jan. 18, 2018 5:48 p.m. ET

    President Donald Trump’s lawyer used a private Delaware company to pay a former adult-film star $130,000 in return for her agreeing to not publicly discuss an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to corporate records and people familiar with the matter.

    The lawyer, Michael Cohen, established Essential Consultants LLC, on Oct. 17, 2016, just before the 2016 presidential election, corporate documents show. Mr. Cohen, who is based in New York, then used a bank account linked to the entity to send the payment to the client-trust account of a lawyer representing the woman, Stephanie Clifford, one of the people said.

    [...]

    To further mask the identities of the people involved in the agreement, the parties used pseudonyms, with Ms. Clifford identified as “Peggy Peterson,” according to a person familiar with the matter. Part of the draft settlement pact was published by Slate.

    The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Mr. Cohen arranged to pay Ms. Clifford, who starred in adult films under the name Stormy Daniels, in October 2016, after negotiating a nondisclosure agreement with her lawyer, Keith Davidson, according to people familiar with deal. Ms. Clifford privately has told people she had a sexual encounter with Mr. Trump after meeting him at a July 2006 golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, people familiar with the matter said.

    In emails to the Journal last week, Mr. Cohen didn’t address the $130,000 payment but said of the alleged sexual encounter that “President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has” Ms. Clifford. He also declined to discuss Essential Consultants, and asked the Journal to “cease wasting my time.”

    Mr. Cohen and his lawyer didn’t respond to emails Thursday seeking comment.

    The Journal previously reported that Ms. Clifford, 38 years old, had been in talks with ABC’s “Good Morning America” in the fall of 2016 about an appearance to discuss Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.
