rip nikolai gorokhov, lawyer for sergei magnitsky's family, namesake of the magnitsky act which just passed in england freezing the assets of hundreds of russian torturers. a similar bill also passed in the united states in 2012 as well.
nikolai was just thrown out of a fourth floor apartment window in moscow in what russian media describes as 'a sudden burst of gravity'.
Too bad they didn't have any pics of him getting peed on before the legal action, otherwise they could have blackmailed him instead of causing the gravity burst. I wonder if Trump's boyfriend ordered this up explicitly.
Especially Russian gravity.
Putin has invented a new form of government;
One can only hope he personally demonstrates it himself. SOON.
I wouldn't mind seeing Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Mikey Flynn and a few others of their ilk get their gravity burst first.
That list is long. Fortunately there's enough gravity for everyone!
And technically for gravity to work not only does the planet pull us towards it, but we very very slightly pull the planet towards us...
So the Trump Administration would be in a very tiny way doing it to themselves.
Come to think about it...
If ALL politicians were to experience this phenomenon and we got to start off fresh by picking qualified people from the citizenry to represent us, would anybody be upset?
Not as long as they put in their 2 dollars.
Estimated 1.5mill homeless in the US.
Estimated 242.5mill adults in the US.
If everyone gave $2 that's 485mill dollars.
That would be approximately $323 per homeless person, for a one time donation of $2 per person.
That $323 could buy new clothes to try get work or whatever...or a person could just eat for a while.
Imagine if people gave 2 dollars a month, or two dollars a week?
It means fuck all to you and me, couple of candy bars, could literally change the country.
You know, that's exactly what taxes are for.
... That is, if Exxon and the rest of corporate America weren't running the show, we might actually be able to do something for We the People.
The Govt has far far too many levels of bullshit between the point the money goes in and where it goes back out again.
Plus they've repeatedly proven themselves unable to fix the problem, they just spend it on guns.
@Padawanbater2 and I have been advocating for government accountability as opposed to the current system of corporate led aristocracy for quite some time now, while continually listening to your derision.
Quit whining and start contributing, Stinkydigit.
And there is no gravitational pull greater than Trump's massive ego.
If all the rich people just shared their money nobody would have to work.
We want to go the same place, just at different paces...you keep just lashing out and attacking though.
The top tax rate in the '50's was 90% over $250K.
Trump wants to bring back the '50's, right?
Change the $250K to 5 million, and let them pay 90% beyond it. If you can't stop greed, you can sure as hell tax it.
I've only been waiting 37 years. How much longer do you suggest I 'just be patient'?!
Leave it at $250k, and cap deductions. Same result, only now it gets invested.
