    Getting ready to sign off. Got a lot to do.

    Here’s my argument....if there is an individual who is constantly disrupting threads on this forum.....why are they still around?

    I thank you all for the Freepmails and support you all gave me but we have an individual who comes on this thread for no other reason....well to disrupt.

    And judging by the many complaints, this happens a lot.

    Now FreeRepublic has never been known to be shy about banning someone. So if a disruptor is allowed to continue on then I assume the management thinks it is ok.

    I probably won’t be back again.

    This Week’s Sunday Political Shows.

    FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): White House budget director Mick Mulvaney; Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla.
    Mulvaney shines.

    MEET THE PRESS (NBC): White House chief of staff Reince Priebus; Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

    Nancy Pelosi demands Trump tax returns

    FACE THE NATION (CBS): Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly; Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio.

    First time I meet John Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary.

    THIS WEEK (ABC): Attorney General Jeff Sessions; California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

    Xavier Becerra defends California immigrants. It was a lousy argument.

    STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Kelly; Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C.

    Dick Durbin wisdom….NOT.

    A massive new entitlement for childcare costs, as Ivanka has advocated, is a horror. It is not the federal government’s business to be funding that. And it is not good for the government to pull more mothers away from their own childcare. Her horrid plan would pay for whatever fancy nanny’s and whatnot parents making up to $300K a year opted for.

    We shall agree to disagree. Because I worked because my daughter's father died when she was three years old. I HAD to work. I did get social security death benefits but they were at that time about $600 a month. My house payment alone was $800 a month.

    I HAD TO WORK....nobody was taking me away from my child.

    My child care costs, which I HAD TO HAVE because likely you'd be the first to arrest and jail me had I left her home alone....were around, at that time $100 a week.

    Don't you think allowing me to deduct that on my taxes is better than having me stay at home, collecting welfare or whatever, all my medical care paid for by the gubmint?

    Obviously there must be limits but this nonsense about the gubmint taking mothers away from their kids is nonsense.

    I think it should be a deductible and hey, we will agree to disagree on this.

    Morning cousin Mike.

    You pretty much summed the situation with the GOP as it currently stands between the moderates and “conservatives”. To us out here in la-la land who want things to change, well we get confused.

    I’d like to make an insert about Ivanka Trump, who I adore.

    I was just so impressed by how artful she acted when that asshole on the Jet started making trouble, kind of like Humblegunner every time he sees me. Indeed Ivanka is a very well-behaved female. You don’t see her making silly Tweets like accusing Abe Lincoln of stealing a MAGA hat and wearing it for selfie.

    I have heard that Ivanka is for women’s rights, a main being the ability to deduct the costs of child care.

    I worked my whole life and paid a fortune for babysitting. I can’t remember if I could claim my babysitter but if I could it was not near what I paid.

    But you can’t work without having your children cared for. Isn’t that a cost of employment?

    I guess what I’m saying is there are some so-called liberal, or women’s issues, that are good ones.

    Not to mention she takes pride in her appearance and has perfect taste.

    I am going to give her wide berth and see where it all goes.

    We should probably feel sad for someone so lonely and despondent.

    Way I figger, we’re talking a really ugly person, both mentally and physically.

    Why the hell can’t he put up a post, participate in the conversation, instead of beating up on people every damn time he enters a thread.

    Maybe he needs it back but maybe we should pray for someone so lonely and mean.

    Watching Nancy Pelosi demand that Trump show his tax returns.

    I can tell you for real that Americans are not all worried about Trump’s tax return.

    This is obviously more effort to destroy Trump.

    And it seems like they have a little help from some Freepers.

    I found lots of examples of Humblegunner’s stalking me. Give me time and I shall post.

    Right here on this thread.

    I will not type another word to you.

    You’ve been after me for YEARS and yeah, I did copy and paste it all.

    Give me time and I’ll find it.

    Enjoy the thread and so shall I.

    When I used to do payroll.....heh......

    .......We had illegals in a hospital I used to work for.

    They used to make up SS numbers and I’d get this notice from the IRS that the SS number of this person did not match his name.

    I’d call his boss but it ended there.

    There was no rule that the person get fired and as I saw it, so I kept paying and sent in the ss taxes withheld as required by law and I suppose it got posted to whoever had that SS number’s account.

    The government provided no help at all in handling this illegal problem.

    OMG...Bray, you post got moved to chat! Call me when the FBI gets there!

    That’s illegal, it is a crime.

    I will pray for you.

    Not to worry. I will still do the summary of youtube shows and continue to be a good participant in this thread.

    I will NOT come on this thread just to insult a loyal Freeper poster and to continue the stalk.

    I am scared to death of whoever this person is.

    Why can’t he leave me alone?

    You stalk me all over the place, you come on here and take a comment of mind that was obviously an exaggeration, you tie up bandwidth with a stupid picture.

    Why on earth do you hate me so?

    Please leave me alone.

    I agree with you Bray.

    At first the concept was that women don’t have to dress dumpy or be ugly in order to be respected pundits.

    But seriously, they went overboard.

    The way some of those women dress on Fox cable is just X-rated.

    But I’m not convinced this gives a man the right to be making passes, however that is defined.

    Asking for a date is one thing. Putting hands down blouses is not acceptable, no matter how low cut it s.

    It might be hard to believe but this poster just makes up stuff.

    He-or she-has no idea about O’Reilly’s ratings but hey, just type and boom, it becomes the truth.

    RG you nailed O’Reilly. And since I watch Fox cable damn near 24 hours a day, not that I’m big and real proud of that but I do.....I know them all.

    O’Reilly was a loser. His books, his stupid tours, his guests.....his sale of junk....all helped keep him but I NEVER watched his show, turned it off as soon as it came on.

    I am glad he’s gone and he did have some kind of thing a couple years back with a woman and I distinctly remember him apologizing for it.

    So I type it and boom, it becomes true!

    He even NAMES his ghost writer!!!!!! Right on his book.

    Says it right on the book cover, Martin DeGard.

    And how are you related to Bill O’Reilly? Cause you’ve already stated a lie that a google search would have proven.

    Yes. I see the pattern.

    All I know about Bill Reilly is there WAS some kind of incident a while back and O’Reilly himself apologized to the viewers about it.

    That kind of makes Bill O’Reilly subject to more possibly false allegations.

    But I’m not sure I believe any of it. I think it was Bill O’Reilly’s time to go and this is a manufactured, or hyped up story, about sexual harassment that the NY Times jumped on.

    There’s Stirewalt, Tucker Carlson, Watters World....lots of young and upcoming pundits. O’Reilly is bombastic, selling ghost-written books and silly frou-frou, going on tour, desperately trying to save himself.

    But come 8pm....the world was turning off Bill O’Reilly.

    Time for him to go. Of course I think he should be treated fairly but I think this is all a play for us in the “audience” to watch unfold.

    And while I’m at it, on a personal note....

    .....I spent my entire life knowing what everyone I worked with made.

    I hated it.

    First, there’s something about people knowing you know their salary, that makes them very open about their private lives.

    Now I’m a gossip as much as most anyone but after a while it gets old.

    And I’d often hear people asserting that they know for a fact that Sally makes ten grand more than anybody in the department, that Joe Blow just got a promotion.


    Had to keep my chuckle to myself.

    All my life....been paying people. Now that I am retired...DO NOT TELL ME HOW MUCH MONEY YOU MAKE!!!

    I don’t want to know.

    Yes AB.

    Not sure why you are paying BOTH parts of FICA unless you refer to your own FICA payments.

    Which goes up to 15% or thereabouts as I recall.

    It’s not that Rush is totally wrong with his assertion that, most likely, if the employer didn’t have to match the medicare and social security the employees would probably have higher pay.

    It’s just very vague and using Rush’s logic, if unemployment insurance weren’t on the employer, or workman’s comp insurance....then, of course, the employee will make more take home pay.

    There is no such assurance and it’s just a bit misleading.

    Rush stated, on the air, that the employer DOES NOT match the FICA and HI deducts, that if comes out of the employee’s gross pay he WOULD have gotten....

    ....lookit, again, Rush Limbaugh has not gotten a paycheck in many years. It’s misleading and inaccurate how he states it.

    While Rush Limbaugh is smarter than me about most everything, he needs to stay away from paychecks.

    I know all there is to know about that.

    Once I even paid the president of the United States.
