"figured out my DNA'..now there's a stumper..wtf are you talking about?
Maybe referring to the fact you only have 45 X-Chromosomes ... instead of the full compliment of 46 ... we're genetically closer to male chimps than human women ... or haven't you noticed? ...

how much money do you have in your IRA that you pay capital gains tax? ...
You realize that if a capital gains tax hike makes stock prices go down, stocks in IRAs go down.
Wait a minute ... capital gains is taxed when the asset is liquidated ... why are you investing in companies that are being liquidated? ... God, I hope you have an investment manager ...

Companies typically roll over capital gains ... there's several ways to do this ... the only time capital gains would be taken out of the company is if the shareholders voted for a cash payment ... and either pay 20% capital gains tax or 20% dividend tax ... not both ...

The poster that started this already admitted he's some Middle Class slob ... so in every way, he'd be better off paying straight income tax of 15% on this ... capital gains tax is for the Rich so they don't have to pay the 38% income tax rate ...

In general, share prices depend on dividend payments ... so there's nothing about a rarely used tax rate that would change these payments ... IBM sell a factory, they'll just invest in another factory ... they don't go out buying TV's and airplanes with the money ... sheesh ...
Wait a minute ... capital gains is taxed when the asset is liquidated ... why are you investing in companies that are being liquidated? ...

When I sell shares of Microsoft, the company isn't being liquidated.

Companies typically roll over capital gains ... there's several ways to do this ... the only time capital gains would be taken out of the company is if the shareholders voted for a cash payment ..

Ummmmm......if I buy a share at $50 and sell at $100, that has nothing to do with the company "rolling over capital gains" or a "shareholder vote".

In general, share prices depend on dividend payments

And future growth and earnings. And tax rates. And morons adding regulations.

... so there's nothing about a rarely used tax rate that would change these payments ...

Rarely used? Then why does dopey Joe want to hike the rate to 40%?

If you could sell your shares today and keep 80% of your gains or sell
them in 2021 and keep 60% of your gains, what are you more likely to do?

God, I hope you have an investment manager ...

Based on what you've shown here, I hope you have nothing more
complicated than a mutual fund.

You do like to eat? Well if it wasn't for oil, get ready to plant and raise your protein on your own. Are you ready?
Oh hell yeah ... all the bottom land around here is as fertile as any new soil could be ... it wouldn't take long to convert these pastures into productive farm lands ... hydro-power in abundance and cheap ... scary amounts of water, crystal clean mountain fresh spring water everyplace, it's a damn nuisance to be honest ... swap my pickup for a Chevy Volt and I'm fossil fuel free ...
Then go at it, but don't buy anything from the nearby store. They rely on fossil fuels and will for years.

There is only science. It is non-partisan and non-political..at least..until the politicians and partisans get a-hold of it.

Republican 'science' is not a good look either...climate change deniers are among some of the stupidest people I've ever met.

As with other disciplines, Americans have been subjected to a contempt for the science of climatology that has festered in the highest echelons of government recently.

The stark disparity between reality and crackpot notions has dire ramifications, and no, ingesting disinfectants will not protect you from the ravages of unchecked fossil fuel consumption.
Climate change is making people sick and leading to premature death, according to a pair of influential reports on the connections between global warming and health.

Scientists from the World Meteorological Organization released a preliminary report on the global climate which shows that the last decade was the warmest on record and that millions of people were affected by wildfires, floods and extreme heat this year on top of the global pandemic.

Separately, a sprawling analysis published Wednesday by the medical research journal The Lancet focuses on public health data from 2019, and finds that heat waves, air pollution and extreme weather increasingly damage human health. It is the most comprehensive annual report yet on the nexus of climate and health, and is routinely cited by climate policymakers. The authors include dozens of physicians and public health experts from around the world.

Both reports make an explicit connection between death, disease and burning fossil fuels.
This foolishness has not only been an embarrassment for the United States that has surrendered leadership in the global crisis. It is a perverse refutation that will have severe economic impact, provoke mass migrations, and destroy quality of life for humans as well as other species.

Will the nation step up to face this enormous challenge that is already wreaking havoc?
LMAO! Geo-engineering is the cause for weather anomalies.........the spraying of heavy metal nano-particulates into the ionosphere has been going on in earnest since 1997.

I hate Big Oil ... I see them as my enemy ... the enemy of the People ... those are some rude bastards alright ... I want an immediate $10 a gallon tax on gasoline, drive Big Oil into the grave ... pull our diplomates out of every oil producing country including Canada and Mexico ... fuck Oil ... it took Exxon 22 years to pay one goddam red cent to native Prince George's Sound fishermen ... they had to move away when the Exxon Valdez poisoned all the fish ... fuck that ... city slickers are the problem, burning that filthy shit to haul in their gluttony and obesity ... their only redeeming feature is they sink excess carbon from the atmosphere ...
So are you trying to tell us you don't use any products that contain oil? You don't drive a car, you don't use a bus, you don't have shingles on your roof, you don't have an asphalt driveway or use asphalt roads, you don't have tires on your car, you don't depend on products in your store being delivered via oil powered vehicles? Are you going to mow your lawn with an electric tractor, or snow blow your driveway with a solar panel snow blower?

Even your mail is delivered by vehicles powered by oil. Do you think freight trains are ran on electricity?

Simple basic truths (proven by science) are not likely to change.
Right. And that's what "settled science" is, in the scientific community: something so well established that it is accepted that it can be assumed as true for the purpose of continuing. Might something "settled" be upended? Yes.
Medicine became a business and is corrupted....Science has become a business and is corrupted.

I never get an answer from leftists maybe you can give it a shot.

Why did Michael Manns team at Penn State manipulate the temperature data to show a dramatic upward spike in the infamous hockey stick graph?

Untrue. Real science shows covid dies in direst sunlight in under two minutes. So Democrats tell you to stay indoors.

Makes perfect sense if you're an idiot.

Yep.

It would have been a different story if we had reelected this buffoon. But we woke up and corrected our fuckup immediately.

And that applies to several different issues. We will recover from this much faster, since it only lasted four years. The stain has only had so much time to set in.
Recover from what, Dim shutdown policy?
Trumpism.

Someone like you wouldn't understand, for obvious reasons.

Of course we will recover. How could we not with a guy that wants to increase taxes on our job creators, a guy who is going to increase the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour causing inflation, job losses, more companies moving overseas, outsourcing, or investments in automation to replace us humans, and less new job startups, a guy who's going to increase our capital gains taxes so our market slows down where many of us have our IRA's in, a guy who wants to shutdown fracking not only doubling or more our price of fuel, but shutting down our exports since you can't export green energy, a guy who wants to move lowlifes into now safe and beautiful suburbs which will close down stores, drastically reduce property values, turning now safe and good schools into zoos?

I mean......what can go wrong with Biden in charge?

You will never admit it here two years from now, but you'll be longing for the days when President Trump was in charge.
You nutters and your imagined crystal ball fantasies.

Trumpism is a stain on our history. I will not miss it. The future is the future, and you can't predict it.

Probably not...Kim Stanley Robinson has a series of science fiction books that feature climate change...he calls this era, "The Dithering'...and so it is. He also predict that
'Boomer' will become an insult..denoting a wasteful person whose selfishness condemns later generations to decades of austerity..and millions of deaths.

Great writer....probably a bit too....everything...for right-wingers.

He's a bit too much of a moron. He's a "science fiction" writer. Did you notice the "fiction" part?
A SciFi writer gave us the concept of a geostationary satellite.

Science is not infallible.

But it's better than mysticism.
How many genders are there?

Seems to me that you are a bit butt-hurt over the fact that people are having no problem 'deciding their gender'--and that it's those choices that have your panties in a bunch.
I don't give a hoot what people decide about their gender and sexual orientation--yeah..it seems a bit weird..and even humorous...but it impacts my life not at all.
