You make two accounts, after one is banned, you ask the moderator to still play in the game with the second, so in effect taking over cd from yourself, it is allowed to do it on this site - example as a france http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=196322
I want to see a Coke ad where a Kendall Jenner look-a-like tries to stop a riot by presenting a can of Pepsi. After a dramatic pause in the melee, both sides ask her, "You got Coke?" [Then they resume fighting].
Things are getting pretty serious. We have all-nighters together, we watch Khan Academy videos together and it even joined my subject study group. I think this one is a hard one. Its thermos are alright too. Hey BB suck on this
Accidentally hit Clean a few days ago. Cancelled it because there were things in the oven. Haven't been able to open it since. Have had it unplugged for 24 hours, hoping the electromagnet that allegedly locks it loses strength soon. Will update as warranted.
The IRS employs regressive taxation for independent contractors and the self-employed
I paid my taxes in the States the other day like a good citizen. And I'm pissed. Is it actually true that the States has regressive taxation for people categorized as self-employed/independent contractors? Annual profit $0–$433.12: 0% tax rate Annual profit $433.13–$128,316: 14.12955% tax rate (including on $433.12) Annual profit $128,317–: 2.67815% tax rate (including on $128,316) + $14,694
oh stop whining and give you hard earned money to the government so they can take some for their salaries and then some to people who don't work for a living like a good little progressive-democrat drone
as much as i have problems with the progressive tax rate, i have even more with the regressive tax rate. this isn't even an all-sweeping what you get out is what you put in, so therefore what you put in should change as our constant output is constant... it's idiocy.
any true conservative and liberal should be against this. the corruption in this country annoys me
oh stop whining and give *your hard-earned money to the government so they can take some for their salaries and then some to military contractors so they can continue to lobby congress for more military spending like a good little populist conservative drone.
This is especially unfair for low-income workers who were expecting a W-2 in the mail and instead got a 1099-MISC. Instead of paying little to nothing in taxes, they have to pay 14.12955% of their profit, easily over $1,000. Plus they have to take the time to calculate all business expenses they incurred over the last year for filling out a Schedule C form when they weren't keeping track because they thought their employer – you know – considered them to be an employee.
Is that like the guy who claims it is legal to drive without a license, because the interstate commerce rule prohibits the states from regulating certain things. So he can't get driving fines for speeding and such, or lose his non-existance license??
Yes. Prior to passage of the 16th amendment, there was a question whether the federal govt could tax people's income. Sovereign citizens refuse to pay fed income taxes because they ignore the 16th amendment.
I was self employed and had to file a schedule SE every year for 11 years. Yes, it's completely true. Welcome to the Land of the Free. The taxes were so brutal even though I was making a poverty-level income that I had to break down and get a W-2 job a couple years back. Even though I'm no longer filing a schedule SE, I'm still paying half of that tax (my employer now pays the other half). It's still infuriating to know I'm paying massive amounts into these programs I know I'll never live long enough to see a dime from.

Depending on the nature of the work you do and your relationship with your employer, this may be illegal. Employers often do this to sleaze their way out of paying payroll taxes and stick their employees with them. If you can afford it, you may want to consider talking to a labor law lawyer.
It looks like you are referring to Social Security tax (12.4% for self-employed - for employees, half is paid by the employer and half is paid by the employee) and Medicare (2.9% for self-employed - again 50/50 split for employees/employer). Yes, it is insane. It is only setup this way because, unlike in other countries that provide a pension, people believe that Social Security is not welfare (it is). Thus there is an income limit for the tax as the benefit is supposed to be proportional to the tax you pay.
Is it allowed to have two players playing from the same household - in different games? I know they cannot join games together, and that is fine with me, but can two players from the same household play different games?
