    Ted missed a fine opportunity to do one about climate change wiping out the wheat crop in Italy, which is why Italian pasta is in short supply & expensive.

    Plenty of 99 cent store brand, though.

    Ted, I didn’t expect you to take me seriously when I asked when you were doing a ’toon on inflation.

    I remember when Republicans thought handling top secret information like the recipe for waffle shared by the Belgian Ambassador was a big deal. If the reports of Trump taking nuclear secrets turns out to be true, will the Republicans change their name to the Rosenbergs?

    Apparently, the GOP believes defending tax cheats is a viable political position. They want to let people make up whatever numbers they want on their 1040s.

    She’s made it clear she has no interest in becoming a Democrat, but she probably will run as an Independent if Trump runs again.

    Of course, Trump isn’t running in 2024. He’s just keeping up the grift until the indictment comes.

    Whatever you think of Cheney, I don’t believe she or anyone else was surprised she lost her primary.

    Not sure if that word salad even passes the very low bar for conservative conspiracies.

    They’re not “raising taxes” by a penny. They’re making people pay taxes they’re supposed to pay. I’m not inclined to cry for someone who tries to hide thousands of dollars of cash income from the IRS, even if they make less than $400k. It’s perfectly obvious why so many people are upset about the increased reporting requirements on services like Venmo & PayPal: they were hiding substantial income from the IRS to avoid paying taxes.

    Republicans are are finally open about being the Party of Tax Cheats.

    There are people who earn most of their income in cash. Some of them lie wildly about how much cash they earn. The IRS can figure out if their lying by sniffing out bank accounts that may not be under their name, but it takes time & personnel. It’s hilarious watching the Republicans openly come out as the Party of Tax Cheats.

    The average middle class taxpayer gets a W-2, a 1099-INT & a 1098. They have taxes deducted from their paycheck. Unless they’re really smart or really dumb, they have enough taken out of each check to wind up with a small refund or a small tax payment due. The IRS has all that information by the time you site down to fill out a 1040. If you make a math mistake, they’ll send a letter asking for payment or a check, if you overpaid.

    Unless you’re faking a $20,000 charitable donation or something equally stupid & criminal, there isn’t anything for the IRS to look at. The IRS has been directed by the Secretary of the Treasury to use the additional funding to modernize it’s outdated computers & to go after people making more than $400k.

    If you’re worried a future Republican will order the IRS to go after people on the low end & leave their country club pals alone, you might be justified. Voting for Republicans tends to turn out that way.
