    Why not have everyone pay Social Security and Medicare taxes on ALL income?

    Actually, wage earners only pay social security taxes on the first $128,400. This means the maximum taken out for social security is $7,960.08 per year. (Of course this matched by the employer also contributing $7960.08 per year). Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk Pro

    How best to deal with gender pay gap? I say we use prevailing wage.

    Actually, the right PhD could. My father had a PhD in Mathematics and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. I was always amazed how many places those degrees came into use. In your example, how much weight on the plane? How many feet do you need to stop? Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk Pro

    The one at the school also works considerably less days per year. 180 school days a year versus 250 in a normal office. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk Pro

    Teachers are paid based upon years of service and education level. Keep in mind when looking at this that teachers work 190 day per year minus sick days. A normal job works 250 days per year (50 weeks times 5 days) that includes removing two weeks vacation. I’m not taking a side, just...

    Judge dismisses Stormy Daniels' defamation lawsuit against Trump

    She’s going to need it. She has to pay Trump’s legal fees. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk

    Most Republicans still want Kavanaugh if the charges are true

    If Kavanaugh did what Ford said, this Republican does not want him on the court. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk

    Dr. Ford's friend was also at the party, but says Kavanaugh was not there

    I find it odd that Ford is believed, even without any evidence or witnesses but everyone else is lying. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk

    Trump is being petty and disrespecting McCain

    The funny thing is that the Democrats hated John McCain until he pissed off Donald J Trump. Now you’d think they love him. On a positive note, we will now get a Republican in that seat through 2020. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk

    It seems many pro-life claim a fetus is a baby - except when not

    Abortion is legal. If some irresponsible woman wants to snuff out the life of her unborn tricycle motor, so be it. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk

    Should Trump Be Impeached Due to Erratic Behavior?

    President Clinton clearly commits perjury and every Democrat in both houses voted against impeachment and removal. Now you want to impeach a President who has not committed a high crime nor misdemeanor. Sent from my iPad Pro using Tapatalk

    Cops tase 11 year old

    Yes, that is true. People have died running into traffic, too. People have died from heart attacks while running from police. A lot of things can kill a person. In this case, the taser did not kill the girl. She's fine. She was arrested and no one died.

    Cops tase 11 year old

    Police, in a situation like this, are damned if they do and damned if they don't. If they had grabbed her, wrestling her to the ground to get her cuffed, they'd be accused of brutality. If she ran from them and they chased her, and she was injured, fall or hit by a car, again, they are at...
