Here is a social experiment.

Will I be reported to @Twitter for using offensive and demeaning language if I use -- correctly -- the word "#niggardly" -- in a sentence?

The Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the tax assessor's approach as a niggardly construction of the statute.
I've been reviewing decisions of the #HawaiiSupremeCourt on the question of whether #nonprofits were properly charged a #generalexcise #tax under Hawaiian law for various activities and operations that produced #income to the organization.
Courts begin (and end) their principal analysis of such issues by examining an underlying tax law, code, rule, or regulation.

1/ AT ONE TIME, EVERY PIECE OF #PAPER MONEY WAS BACKED BY #GOLD. REMEMBER… FOR EVERY 20 DOLLAR BILL… THERE WAS $20 WORTH OF GOLD IN A #GOVERNMENT VAULT. NOT ANYMORE.

TODAY, GOVERNMENTS CREATE #CURRENCY BY FIRST CREATING BONDS OR TREASURY-BILLS.
2/
THESE #BONDS ARE SOLD IN THE #MARKET… GENERATING FUNDS FOR THE GOVERNMENT THAT ISSUED THEM.

LARGE #BANKS BUY U.S. BONDS TO FLIP THEM… SELLING THEM TO THE #FEDERAL RESERVE AT A PROFIT -- THIS IS THE MAGIC MONEY MACHINE. #FED
3/ YOU SEE… THE FED IS AMERICA’S #CENTRALBANK. BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE ANY MONEY, NO #CASH ON ITS BALANCE SHEETS.

WHEN A BANK BUYS A BOND AND TAKES IT TO THE FEDERAL RESERVE, THE FED SIMPLY SAYS “THANK YOU MR. BANKER, HERE’S THE PRINCIPAL AND SOME #PROFIT.”

So it is #perplexing to read #newsreports that @TheJusticeDept is searching for a #path to #inclusion of the #citizenship #question.

Why is this a #puzzle for you?
The @uscensusbureau must do the best it can to accurate #ascertain #both the #number of #persons and the #number of #citizens.

Abrimos hilo de jingles electorales de la campaña Argentina 2019. Pueden ir agregando abajo a medida que les lleguen nuevos. Arrancamos con @Kicillofok candidato a gobernador PBA: no sabemos si es oficial, pero nos divirtió mucho y es bastante pegadizo
Seguimos con @SergioMassa candidato a presidente por Alternativa Federal. Con la melodía de "No te creas tan importante", el jingle "Sergio Massa presidente"

#ComPol #Argentina #Jingles #Massa
"Acá está / Kicillof / Para volver a la inclusión social" dice el estribillo de este reggaeton que también impulsa la candidatura de @Kicillofok para gobernador de la Provincia de Buenos Aires.

"Decoration Day" renews memory of soldiers who gave their lives that our nation might live. Or in former Pres. Lincoln’s words, “That this nation shall have a new birth of freedom.” It was first instituted by the Grand Army of the Republic - May 30, 1868..1/12
@realDonaldTrump...for the purpose of strewing w/flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, & whose bodies lie in almost every city, village, hamlet & churchyard in our land (Civil War reference)...2/12

Every #MemorialDay a national moment of silent remembrance takes place, 3p local time. It's unclear where the tradition began/initiated as many memorial gatherings were community-based. The Fed Government declared Waterloo, NY official birthplace, 1966...3/12

@WhiteHouse for the first time in #american history a spker of house has revoked an invitation to a duly elected #POTUS to speak before the nation. These traditions are what "Makes America Great" #Pelosi is very extreme and is denying our #SOTU speech. #WWG1WGA #MAGA #sadness
We don't have a 25th amendment to apply to @SpeakerPelosi but we do have to begin to ask is she "mentally competent" She has grabbed power and control of our budget, boarder security and #SOTUS speech. This is "fascistic" In nature and destroying our country.
Here is a list of #fascistic techniques of #putin and #pelosi

-Supporting Hamas
-Supporting Hezbollah
-Supporting Antifa
-Supporting Destroying the Constitution
-Supporting Open Boarders
-Taxing 70% of your wealth

These are tactics of #Fascist - destruction is the end goal

It's not possible to comment intelligently on #Mueller & the entire #investigation without reading LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice, self-funded and published in 2014 for the purpose of educating the public on the need for #CriminalJusticeReform
2. It crosses @GOP & @DNC administrations but has come to expose serious political abuses of #DOJ. It's made a lot of powerful people very angry.
The @FedSoc has not let me speak on topic since the book came out.
My own #BarAssociation @TexasBarCLE won't let me speak on it. WHY?
3. The book is TRUE, reads like a legal thriller but NAMES prosecutors who rose to positions of great power on the backs of people they wrongfully convicted.
It NAMES federal judges who turned a blind eye to egregious injustices.
No one has challenged a word of it, nor can they.

Something to consider about this bill.
“The law criminalizes misrepresentation of a caregiver's experiences and qualifications to help ensure children
are in safe hands."
This fact, all too often, will only be found out after the fact, the damage will be done.

As it is, I would think parents do reference checks before hiring a nanny, if the person has lied before, they will again.
This is yet another reason why we need
a violent felon registry, this puts the power in the hands of the people, for their safety and for the safety of their children.
Too often in #domesticviolence cases, children are involved.
According to the Childhood Domestic Violence Assoc. 5 million children witness
