Re: “Senator Sherrod Brown Out Here Pissing Off Republicans by Stating the Obvious

The bill would repeal the individual Alternative Minimum Tax which primarily affects households with incomes from $200,000 to $1 million and would maintain preferential rates for investment income. It would also repeal the estate tax after six years, in the meantime doubling the amount of inherited wealth that is exempt from the tax to $11 million from $5.5 million.

The top rate would be the same as it is now, except the income level at which it would apply would increase to $1 million for married couples from $480,050 under the current law

Re: “Ohio Supreme Court Justice, Gubernatorial Candidate Bill O'Neill Writes About Sleeping With 50 Women, Wants to be Voice of 'Heterosexual Males'

A lot of heterosexual men don't seem to understand the difference between consensual and nonconsensual sex with women, which is troubling.

She has no chance and is not electable for governor. She only won Dayton mayor a second time, because everyone else was too poor to run on the ballot.

Re: “Senator Sherrod Brown Out Here Pissing Off Republicans by Stating the Obvious

Um, pretty sure Bullcr@p,...that the Democrat savior said for 8 years said that millionaires weren't paying their share. Remember the top 1% Bullcrap? In the new plan, everyone gets a break but millionaires, which is now what Brown is throwing a fit about, quite a contradiction than the Obama years. There just has to be some complaint by Dems. It was right for Hatch to call Brown out to the floor. Hatch bent Brown over his knee and spanked him in front of everyone,...and Brown took it. This is what Dems asked for for 8 years,...this is a good bipartisan arrangement. This headline is Bullcrap and the story was not well sourced or analyzed by Sam Allard before creating such a negatively biased opinion. Fake news is a trend though,......not sure if it would pay bills though,......oh that's right Trump just made it easier for us middle-classer's to pay bills. Don't even tell me your a suffering millionaire, if so get off the posting and put someone to work!

Re: “Ohio Supreme Court Justice, Gubernatorial Candidate Bill O'Neill Writes About Sleeping With 50 Women, Wants to be Voice of 'Heterosexual Males'

Let me see. Well, 56 yrs ago, I was standing in the milk line in elementary school and backed into a girl in front of me. I do not recall her name and I do not remember saying I'm sorry or excuse me. Therefore, any political aspirations that I might of had are now gone in the wind.

Sam, where did you get the information that the bikers "threw him on the ground outside"? I was a witness and that is not what I saw.

A proofreader might have been helpful for his post. At first I thought he was saying Senator Taft was his first true love, and he was about to make a gay joke. It wasn't until I finished the long, wordy sentence I realized the "range" was from secretary to redhead, not from secretary to Taft.

Um, pretty sure Brown put the tax plan in perspective...pay for corporate tax breaks while removing exemptions for the disabled and the elderly. Bullcrap indeed

Re: “Cuyahoga County Forms Solar Co-Op to Help Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Save Money

Solar Power Rocks breaks it down.

Basically, you're right. A system in Ohio will produce 1050 kw/hrs per KW DC, which is about 4 panels, in California that would produce about 1,500 kw/h per KW DC.

Given that the amount of sun OH gets isn't going to change anytime soon, the cost of power from utilities would have to increase about 15-20%, or the cost of solar would have to decrease 15-20% before it would be something that most homeowners would consider a good investment.

Companies are a little different as they can reduce the cost per KW of solar (benefit of a larger system) and they can depreciate the system. Also, for large companies with multiple sites, like Walmart, across states, some times installers blend the rate so every state still pencils out.

This won't send the WSM grocery shoppers to supermarkets for free parking. Most don't spend more than 90 minutes grocery shopping. Grocery shoppers' parking will still be free.

Re: “Bikers for Trump are Not Congressman Jim Renacci's Private Security Detail

Sam,

I get why Leonard was there without an invitation, but If the event was "invite only," who invited the bikers since I doubt that they're either local farmers or small-business owners?

There's more to this story. Please keep digging.

Re: “Bikers for Trump are Not Congressman Jim Renacci's Private Security Detail

@Chuckles, No. 1

The more correct comparison, if they were indeed security hired by Renacci, would be to the Sturmabteilung (aka Stormtroopers/brown shirts).

Until that is shown to be the case, they're simply bullies and thugs.

Scarborough is an ass clown, who never accomplished anything at the University of Toledo or Akron...Good Riddance! He brought in that other ass cloud Ovwigho, who pretty much destroyed UT's IT department.

Re: “Bikers for Trump are Not Congressman Jim Renacci's Private Security Detail

Jackboots on the Ground. Renacci's Waffen SS. He's not exactly discouraging them, either.
Where were his police escorts or his security detail?
Looking at the sky? Out having a smoke in the parking lot?

And you wingnut trolls have the balls to complain about LEFTIST violence? Gimme a f'kin break. Nazi wannabees practicing for CIvil War 2.0...and they will get their wish, eventually.

Re: “Tim Hagan Doesn't Even Know What the Med Mart is Called These Days

I guessed. I wrote about it for the Free Times and Scene and predicted all of this before it went up. I dissected all their claims and rosy predictions and showed how they were impossible. Maude Campbell also did some great reporting on the Med Mart for Scene where she scooped the Plain Dealer which of course was looking the other way and had been a cheerleader for the project.

Always been curious how this publication totally ignores events in the African American community. Its as if the Urban League, the NAACP, Black sororities and fraternities and the Black church don't exist in the world of Scene magazine.

How is it the states fault that this criminal has bad veins Cruel and unusual punishment includes torture, deliberately degrading punishment, or punishment that is too severe for the crime committed. NONE of which occurred .
