  1. I thought Jumbo ate his kids!!
  2. If Burg is pulling out the Nazi references and you weren't sure this was bad already, be prepared. I know he is loathe to pull out that comparison and probably thought a lot about it before he did it. A lot of times people scream Nazi too easily, something I'm positive he doesn't suffer from.

    Also lost in this is both can be true. You can have had less taken out and withholdings and your taxes can have gone up. I don't really care about the withholding thing personally, the number I watch is taxes owed. I seem to have been the the target demographic to hurt with this bill. High cost of living blue areas will get hammered by this unless you're rich enough to be in the yacht set.

    Student loan interest is gone, add up your state taxes, mortgage interest and I’m pretty sure you 10k there. So then you end just taking the standard deduction cause the expenses for most on the schedule all get grouped into the 10k limit. If you skate by unscathed it will be because of the child expenses and deductions. I’m pissed and I knew all along it was happening.

    Having kids will,help you a lot. Also if you had any rental,property losses that’ll help too. The question is will that be enough to offset the loss of personal exemptions and the 24k standard deduction you will have to take because you can’t itemize now as pretty much everything goes toward your 10k salt limit. I went from deducting 40k itemized to only deducting 24k standard deduction and lost the personal exemptions. Good thing I started up a side business last year. That thing is in the red bigtime!!

    Yeah that’s pretty much me.
  10. You're correct which makes it imperative you don't give them ammunition a main stream voter would consider crazy. The stuff about stopping air travel is an example. To the general public, you put that out there and you're going to come off as a nut. Cleaner air travel, ok, no air travel? Nuts. All that kind of thing will do is distract from what she is absolutely correct about and should be laser focusing in on and that's corruption.
  11. I don't disagree and think she could have a bright future as long as she doesn't become successfully labeled an extremest to the main stream voters. Stick with the ethics tack, as pretty much no one can disagree with a straight face. Succeed at that and learn as you go. If she is successful at that we could leave a whole new paradigm that could actually work.

    Keep an eye out in Virginia. The Bookers 30th Anniversary has hit.
  13. I'm right there with her on the ethics stuff. I just think she is young and wants to change things so radically that it could impede her. Some of her ideas about going green are a little out of the mainstream. She needs just a little infusion of Pelosi realism to go along with her engaging idealism.

    If you used the schedule A in the past and make less than about 400-500K a year this tax bill screws you.
  15. He needs to fix his damn tie.
  16. I hope Kamala Harris is not the dem candidate for President. Not engaging at all.

    Yeah he literally has or can get ANYTHING. The prices are for concierge service for sure though, on the Pappy and very old scotch it's expensive. But there are some great barrel pics for reasonable. Don't leave the store without his 1792 Full Proof pick. It's amazing. We get together with friends down there sometimes and go out for dinner and drinking. He had some 50 year Old Highland Park we tried. Not my cup of tea, but cool experience none the less.

    Earlier the better but like the morning of the day before you go should work. Already let him know you might be coming. He has 3 stores in DC the one I sent you is his main one. He wants to try and be at that store when you come by. You can taste some stuff too.

    If you let me know a time Friday I will see if my friend Prav will be there and tell him to expect you.

    1 west dupont circle wines & liquors in DC has everything. They are exactly as you describe a concierge for high end stuff. But it ain’t cheap. Everything is secondary market or above. The barrel picking group I’m in the owner of west DuPont is also a part of and we buy barrels through his store. He has some VERY good Barrel picks he does for his store that are below 100 bucks, that’s the way to go.

    Yeah not a good selection of ryes at the VA ABC, they do have Pikesville, and actually Woodford Rye is not bad. That’s some crazy stuff. My problem is I seem to always like my whiskeybest with nothing.
