    Will that be Bernie's fault or the fault of the self fulfilling prophecy people that made ammo and guns scarce when Obama was elected?

    I still remember a guy standing in front of me complaining that, "I have to get here the day the store gets ammo or it will be gone. Obama is making it so nobody can get ammo". His friend happily agreed. They each had about ten 50 round boxes of .22, .45, 9mm, 5.56/2.23, 7.62/308. They continued talking about how they hit several stores a day, a couple times a week. I just nodded, while thinking to myself, "Do the math moron, you and others like you are fulfilling your own prophecy. But yeah, it is Obama's fault(sarcasm), because if he wasn't President you idiots wouldn't be hoarding".

    In a bad economy I like to invest in something of value. I'm not a gold fan because it's currency based and hard to spend (make change). Some see ammo as a safe place to put their money. I've never traded or sold ammo or weapons at a loss.

    Fortunately we don't have to worry about Bernie. If the DNC doesn't stop him Trump will.:thumbsup:

    I have invested in the American economy for 40 years always believing that the engine will n that may sputter from time to time but is very dependable. Risk and reward betting on that engine depends on the driver. I have made crap loads and lost big also (still have nightmares from 08’) but over all those years I am still way in the black. I know the Great Depression was the darkest time for the economy as my Dad was a child that lived thru that and it affected him and his investing for his entire life — many times calling me foolish for my decisions. Right now the economy is on solid footing unless the national debt crushes us. The one thing that would force me to rethink my whole lifetime of betting on America’s businesses would be a Bernie Sanders presidency. It appears that he is well on his way to the nomination and has a lot of support. If Trump misses a beat or Republicans go to sleep on voting day we could very well see history repeated in the form of another depression under Bernie. They predicted a stock market crash when Trump was elected and it didn’t happen - quite the opposite. I’m betting with Bernie it crashes and doesn’t recover for a LONG time !!

    If Bernie gets elected the speed of the market crash will be mind blowing. Folks will pull cash and hide as much wealth as possible.

    It will be ugly.

    I think whoever said, "Bloomberg is in the race to spend as much as he wants against Trump without breaking campaign finance law" is correct. Trump doesn't care about campaign finance law or many other laws because he is unidictable.:D;(

    Those laws can be tricky for anybody.

    Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations.

    BTW it was me that said it.:thumbsup:

    I think Warren showed us why Bloomberg is there. He is a Trump stand in to use during the primaries. The attacks can simply be used to distract from the dems message on everything while practicing for the general election. Her "and I'm not talking about Donald Trump" line says a lot.

    I have no idea how some of you were able to take these off and put them back on. Mine from the factory had 6 broke off plastic studs on the left and 7 broke off on the right(There are only 13 total per side including the one in the front). Had to apply some pressure with a screwdriver to get the screws completely out as they were just spinning because they were broken. Also on the front what kind of tricks did you all use to get the 3 tabs out? I kind of rolled mine out and it seemed to work alright. Think I am going to use the velcro on the new pieces like Rab did. Thinking this might work.…Back-Tape-90086/202261917

    Now you see why the tape was important, I think the screws are just there for looks.

    Is Bloomberg actually running for President or is it just an anti trump campaign to help the DNC. His ads don't say why he is better than the other candidates just hate on Trump. He can spend as much as he wants as a candidate but would be prohibited if giving to another campaign.

    I hope that you had given them permission, if not I’d kindly let them know they are using a copyrighted image for which they do not have permission. The nerve of some people lol Definitely a compliment to your ride!

    Contacted the seller and found out it's the one I sent to Cipher. The seller pulled it off their site. They offered to pull the pic but I told them it was alright with me. I'll take it as a compliment.

    I'm all for simplifying the tax code. Last year was the first in over 20 that I didn't go long form on taxes. With the standard deduction being doubled I couldn't beat it with a long form.

    Now if they would quit killing me with property tax I'd be happier.

    Flat or consumption without exemptions sounds great. Unfortunately the beast is greedy, income tax, sales tax, fuel tax, property tax the list is ridiculous.

    I have made it very clear through the years on this forum that I would love a flat tax. A flat tax would put an end to class warfare. People aren't upset that rich people are rich, they get upset when they make $30k a year and pay more tax than a billionaire or corporation. A flat % tax, with no loop holes would fix that and help get rid of the deficit. Who knows, once the deficit is gone, maybe we could have extra money for great social and recreational programs. I would have voted for Cruz if he were the nominee last time, because he said wanted a flat tax.

    If I was an owner of a business, I would expect my business to get the flat tax, and my income as an employee of my company to get hit with the flat tax. Since my wages wouldn't count as profit for the company, it wouldn't get taxed twice, it would only get taxed on my personal income records.

    I would want companies only to get taxed on profit, not all income as much of that goes right back out the door to employees and other businesses.

    The problem with a flat tax is that nobody wants a truly flat tax. Everybody, bottom to top pays the same percent. All the plans I've seen allow people at the bottom end to be exempt. It won't happen because it doesn't pander to any group to get votes.

    The whole Bernie thing is a comedy of bad decisions by the DNC. First they needed somebody for Hillary to beat in the Primary. Who better than an old, white, male socialist that isn't even a Democrat to lose to their chosen one. They didn't realize how bad a candidate she would be and needed to save her with super delegates at the convention. Now he's popular and they need the voters he captured so let him run again as a Democrat. If they steal it from him again they lose the young Bernie voters. Crazy Uncle Joe is just icing on the cake at this point.
