Ten #MMT tips to remember on #TaxDay:
1. Federal #taxes don't fund federal spending, so let's #decouple these two important tools.
2. Taxes offset #Government spending.
3. It's a matter of #logic: #dollars must be spent into existence (by the Gov) first, in order for us to use some of those $ to pay taxes
4. #Taxing for #revenue is for local states/municipalities, not the #sovereign issuer of the #currency.
5. Taxing excessive wealth protects #democracy from #Oligarchy and protects us from abusive market power
6. Taxing #pollution & #speculation to reduce such activities, not to "fund" #healthcare and #education.

#LoveLettersToAlberta This is from the heart to #Alberta, not a journalist, so it's kinda sloppy. I'm disabled so I have lots of time to research. I'm white (an accident of birth, so I'm not special) and 6th generation Canadian. 1
Dear Alberta, 350,000 families in #Ontario whose breadwinner lost their well-paying jobs in manufacturing know how you feel with the energy business going through rough times. Hubby was a victim. 2
Some jobs went to the USA to states where they have "Right To Work for Peanuts". Some went to little brown people who aren't immigrants. The jobs went to their country. 3

1/ Yesterday, we published a story on how Congress may be about to ban the government from offering free online tax filing for all.

In response, folks around the world took the opportunity to brag about how much easier they have it.
👇 👇 👇
2/ Take Japan for example, where most employees don’t even have to file a tax return.

So, here are all the other places it’s likely cheaper (and easier) to file your taxes:
3/ (By the way, in the US you have @TurboTax @Intuit @HRBlock + others to thank for the legislation. They spent a combined $6.6 million last year lobbying on the issue.)

(Also, if you don’t see your country on this list, by all means: pile on.)

This is a great, thought-provoking speech by #Draghi, on European sovereignty. Though I disagree with some parts, the final part on “rules vs. institutions” is excellent. A thread. ecb.europa.eu/press/key/date…
Draghi starts out with the alleged conflict between EU membership and #sovereignty, which is crucial to understand the populism of #Brexit, Le Pen et al. He says: no conflict at all, to the contrary.
“True #sovereignty is reflected not in the power of making laws – as a legal definition would have it – but in the ability to control #outcomes … The ability to make independent decisions does not guarantee countries such control,” says Draghi.

1) @RealDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse @POTUS
#QAnon post No. 2706...
#Q dropped 3 images & text aimed at personnel engaged in an overseas [surveillance?] operation. These images are from Shanghai time which is 13 hrs ahead of EST. At this time "Track 7B-DS' (7 B=targets? Deep State?)
2) The first drop was missing #Q's tripcode which set off #Anons. This 2nd drop has it added , confirming the first drop & is the reply. The clock shows. a time which is 4min prior to the drops. This is clearly #China. Seems we must have permission to be doing this op.
3) The agenda, if nothing else was to let the targets know there are being watched. If this is a continuum of the recent LA OP, there may have been another takedown. Active tracking ensues on 3 targets. These aren't #Anon image sets, so much as data sets released for one of #Q's

Did we start a civil war to end slavery or because the south was trying to end the norths oppression? Was the south SICK of the ridiculously high tariffs. That hat you bought made in China, do they inslave their people?

Are you the problem or are you the solution.
MADE IN 🇺🇸
Are we still slaves today? Are we free? Who writes history? Who controls the narrative. Your idea of how things are and were, maybe completely incorrect. No human should be a slave, so why do we have to work to live?

1/ I just finished reading #SovereignIndividual. I think I first heard about it when @lopp was on the @TFTC21 podcast, and has been referenced a lot lately by @pierre_rochard and @MustStopMurad
2/ It is an eye-opening read but is not meant for everyone. It gives an unemotional and unapologetic economic outlook at how unsustainable our current government structure is. This thread is an attempt to tell the story through summaries and (mostly) quotes:
3/ Part 1 #Taxes
“Consider the definition of a racketeer as someone who creates a threat and then charges for its reduction. Governments’ provision of protection, by this standard, often qualifies as racketeering.” - Charles Tilly

Let me give you a #TruthSummary for every corporate media story for the last week and for the next 2 weeks bar some new unforseen crisis:
1. There are no such thing as #TrumpTariffs
Art 1 sec 2 cl 3 delegates that power to Congress
Trump Tariffs are a fiction created by illegal legislation and false policies
Media, pundits, & politicians need to shut up about Trump Tariffs & start talkg about #CongressionalTariffs
2. #Kavanaugh will not be the "death of womens rights" no matter what @SenFeinstein says. Kavanaugh will not be king and for goodness sakes, supports #Obamacare!!

Many people are too consume with the idea of owning a plot of land so sometimes feel too elated to do due verifications before making payment. In this thread, i will tell you how a survey plan search, an essential land check can save you from land trouble. THREAD👇👇👇
