Russia's Olympic team has been barred from the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The country's government officials are forbidden to attend, its flag will not be displayed at the opening ceremony and its anthem will not sound. Any athletes from Russia who receive special dispensation to compete will do so as individuals wearing a neutral uniform, and the official record books will forever show that Russia won zero medals. read more

The attorney for Donald Trump who sought to take the blame for a tweet that could signal the president took part in the obstruction of justice has offered a new defence of Trump's actions: the president cannot obstruct justice.

my, you really are struggling

1st lets start with YOUR original post

"If they want to pay no taxes lets see if they can make any money without using roads, water, protection of their cargo at sea, police and fire protection."
They are paying taxes on those things. In fact they are paying most of the taxes on those things.

roads, water, police, fire-paid for at the local level by local and state taxes

2nd

Federal income taxes are only one form of taxes paid by people

Drive on a federal highway? pay a federal toll
where does that money go? to building highways

Federal income taxes are only one form of taxes paid by people

FICA taxes? Poorer and middle class pay more per income than wealthy

Buy gas? you pay an excise tax

airline tix?
cable?
phone?

ALL have user fees paid to the feds

Federal income taxes are only one form of taxes paid by people

In 2012, the federal government collected $9.7 billion in revenue from excise taxes on distilled spirits, beer, and wine.

the federal excise tax on cigarettes is $1.01 per pack

see when you start adding this stuff up it totals alot

just using say phone taxes

On average U.S. wireless consumers pay an average of 17.05 percent in combined federal, state, and local taxes and fees on their cell phone bills. This rate is comprised of a 5.82 percent federal rate and an average 11.23 percent state-local rate

so say a $100 a month phone bill means $5.82 goes to the feds. Who pays more of their income to the feds for that tax, poor, middle income, wealth?

Federal income taxes are only one form of taxes paid by people

to say NOTHING of the regressive nature of state and local taxes for the wealthy.

so lets hear the whine again for those that have all the money

Would I be correct in assuming that if a Trumpster said the same about Malia Obama you'd be losing your ---- right now.

Ivanka and Tiffany are adults and Ivanka at least in politics.

And Ivanka acts without class hocking her crap in all her social media.

Rights and facts, never the twain shall meet.

You REALLY need to read this article, which admittedly is somewhat dated-2012.

en.wikipedia.org

A study by the RAND Corporation in 2005 found the UN to be successful in two out of three peacekeeping efforts. It compared efforts at nation-building by the UN to those of the United States, and found that seven out of eight UN cases are at peace, as compared with four out of eight US cases at peace
