    I know exactly how you feel, bro. Lost two brothers in the '80's. My thoughts are with you.

    Not a rant but a matter of chuckles.

    AOC is saying her life is in danger because a college conservative group labeled her a domestic terrorist. This from someone who labeled Trump a white supremacist, a statement that may have been the very reason some would label her a DT.

    Thanks fellas. Means a lot. Crazy thing is the night before he passed I remember telling my son how special he was because he is the only boy that can carry on our families last name. My younger brother did not have any children and my older brother has a different last name. I hadn't told him that for probably 5 years. But something told me to tell my son that the night before my brother passed. As soon as I saw the Texas area code come through on my phone I knew something bad had happened.

    Have a lot to take care of and thanks for listening.

    Only in Minnesota do the state wide tornado drills get postponed because there is a blizzard going on during a flood.

    Oh the hypocrisy of the Loons on the left. Yet, it is OK for them to parade around children using them as pawns in their fight for gun control.


    “The extent of this Administration’s cynicism and cruelty cannot be overstated,” Pelosi spokeswoman Ashley Etienne said in a statement Friday. “Using human beings—including little children—as pawns in their warped game to perpetuate fear and demonize immigrants is despicable, and in some cases, criminal.”

    People who do not understand federal tax refunds and what they really are for most and "News" media who play words to keep them incensed for political purposes. What exactly are they saying? It is better to be overtaxed at a higher rate than overtaxed at a lower rate?

    So to "Losing" number one:

    Never depend on a tax refund as a predetermined income or "guaranteed entitlement". It is not, it is simply what you overpaid during the course of the year being returned to you without any interest attached. If you absolutely need to use it as an interest free(loan to government) savings plan and need it to be bigger, then fill out another W-4 and there is a box for additional withholdings per pay period. Get paid every other x-day you will have $1,080 on top of your normal refund if you have $40 additional taken out, $960 if you get paid twice a month or $2080 if paid every week. Problem solved, although stupidly. Also note the color of your state, if blue you can almost certainly be assured that your state income tax or another state tax will be raised/created to get the newly acquired revenue from paying less federally, because you won't notice it missing.

    Losing number two:

    Got nothing for ya, see losing number one. Less does not equal more.


    Losing number three:

    See losing number two
