I have no followers so I'm sure this post will be a waste of #TwitterSpace. I have personally been blessed and cursed by the whole medical system most of my life. To start off, my father shot himself when I was 7 due to mental health issues. Back then depression and bipolar 👇🏼
was treated with drugs like Valium. He had a really low moment and boom. “Tell Roger I’m sorry” is what they told me he said. I was introduced to #oxycontin at the ripe age of 15. My first dose was 40mg and I was sick as a dog for hours. That would trigger a lifelong battle 👇🏼
With addiction to #opiods. After my mom abandoned me when I was 16 and after some time in a homeless shelter
then rehab, I began to get my life together at age 22. 23 im married and doing ok and wreck an #ATV (4-wheeler) off a mountain in #NorthCarolina and become #paralyzed👇🏼

THREAD: #Sunak, the man who created this "profound #economic #crisis, seems to have no clue how to fix it - less than #Kwarteng for sure!
cont.
No, I & millions of others are not happy about paying for your mistakes #Sunak!
cont. Image
Not happy because #Sunak is choosing the worst possible route forward, increasing taxation on those who have the least income to spare - remembering the truly rich do not pay income tax... he would know that, wouldn't he!

Indian Income Tax has a peculiar category of taxpayers i.e. HUF.

So, Let's understand what is HUF ? [ A 🧵]

@CA_HarshilSHETH @TaxationUpdates @PratibhaGoyal @caanuragwriter #HUF #incometax #taxpayer
The Income Tax Act provides several opportunities for taxpayers to reduce their tax liabilities in a legitimate manner.

One such aspect is the creation of the HUF or the Hindu Undivided Family
HUF's features:-

a. HUF is governed under Hindu law board & could be formed by a married couple or by a family

b. Hindus, Buddhists, Jains & Sikhs can form HUFs.

c. HUF consists of a common ancestor and all of his lineal descendants, including their wives & unmarried daughters

@propublica 1. @JeffBezos also gets tax breaks from local/state govts to encourage him to locate #Amazon's facilities in their states. Since he doesn't pay a #LivingWage, the #USTaxPayers subside his employees w/#FoodStamps & w/other assistance programs! This example:

@propublica @JeffBezos 2. @elonmusk's goal has been "to get unimaginably rich by maximally gaming the govt’s largesse." Last yr he tweeted against govt aid for individuals but he was fine w/#Tesla getting $ from the #CovidBailOut. Then there's his #Starlink. In 2020 he got @FCC

@propublica @JeffBezos @elonmusk @FCC 3. grants of about $885.5M to use satellites to help those who don't have access to broadband. Does he have to pay back a gov't grant? If not he'll be making more money off the #TaxPayer. There is a $500 initial....

1. "Yesterday was such a frustrating day that by evening I had to go to bed with chest pains..."

Thread. What is a #Hybrid #VotingMachine & Why Do I Care?

2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."
3. "From there it went downhill pretty quickly ... For the last 2 years, I have been trying to protect New York voters, and voters across the country from a particularly “bad” type of voting machine known as a “hybrid”.

What is a “hybrid” voting machine?"

I kinda think it's hillarious that @_SecondThought was intimidated by @DHSgov and shadowbanned by @YouTube re: criticism of the @CIA.

For all the wrong reasons...
[a thread]
For once, it's a chilling effect for anyone, espechally de-facto members of the #press [since @_SecondThought does #journalism, be is part of it] to intimidate them by a govt. agency like @DHSgov.

Not to mention that their accusation, "anti-americanism", is not a crime.
In any reasonable justice system, #NullaPeneSineLege applies, which means the government cannot do anything about something that isn't explicitly outlawed.

And last time I checked voicing criticism of politicans was not, @DHSgov!

#wheat #exports: #India to export 3.5-4 million tonnes of wheat to neighbouring countries as compared to an average of 0.2Mn tonnes per annum in the past between now & March if govt sells at international prices which are below #MSP .
m.economictimes.com/news/economy/a…
If the govt absorbs the difference #India could end up exporting as much as 7Mn tonnes of #wheat . The govt needs to empty stocks at a loss after buying from #Farmers at #MSP to be able to buy more #wheat this year.
Fact is #MSP has put the nation into cyclic losses .
As yields increase it will logically not be possible for any govt to buy crops at an #MSP higher than international prices beyond a determined stock . The rest of the agricultural produce will logically have to be sold at market rates .

The RED Talk on The #Business and #Science of #Healthcare is now live! Still time to join us at ruralpolicy.group/red.
The next big issue facing NICE & #healthcare will be our relationship with the European Medicines Agency after Brexit; it will impact our #medicines research, trials. We could see a dramatic reduction in research, access to medicine and disrupt the supply of meds - @steve_mccabe
The British #taxpayer makes a phenomenal contribution to the development of new #drugs - but these can then be prohibitively priced. We need to improve access to new medicines and there is a question around cost, access and funding. @steve_mccabe

Want to know why the cost of living continues to go up, year after year?

Want to know how the government can "afford" to pay for endless wars, the war on drugs, the militarized #policestate, and so many other destructive policies? Image
Want to know why the US government is over $26 trillion in debt, and rapidly rising, or why our #economy bounces between boom and bust cycles, leaving the poor and middle class further and further behind?

The answer to these is very simple: it's because of the Federal Reserve.
The #FederalReserve, or Fed for short, is the central banking system of the US. It controls how much, or how little, money is being printed.

Its main purpose is to lend money to government-approved banks at low-interest rates, so they can lend it to you at higher rates.

BREAKING: House Interior Approps bill is out! The good: The subcommittee rejected the President’s budget request for $15.3 mill in additional funding for the WHB Program. The bill continues to prohibit the slaughtering of #wildhorses and burros. #appropriation #freewildhorses Image
The bad: the draft bill would result in Congress handing the Bureau $42 mill in additional #taxpayer funds over 2019 budget levels with no hard requirements to prevent the agency from spending all the funds to #roundup and stockpile #wildhorses and to surgically sterilize them.
These are the first installments on the Bureau’s multi-billion dollar proposal to cull #wildhorse populations back to #extinction levels, a plan that will push the program off the fiscal cliff, inevitably resulting in the mass #slaughter of America’s nat'l icons. #stoptheroundups

The UK has traditionally invested far less in its businesses through #StateAid than other EU countries.

I welcome greater investment by this Government so we can #catchup and hopefully overtake.
The greater the sums invested, the more important it is that we have effective subsidy control rules, which:

- protect the #taxpayer from excessive subsidies;

- guard against #cronyism;

- coordinate public funding towards objectives such as #levellingup and #climatechange.
In my view:

1) the #FTA dispute resolution mechanism between 🇬🇧 and 🇪🇺 should apply only to material distortions of competition which affect trade;

2) below that level, the 🇬🇧 should still have #StateAid rules to achieve the benefits set out above.

How Extinction Rebellion 168 climate change zealots - incl. a baronet's Cambridge-educated granddaughter - are paid £400 a week to bring mayhem to our streets. Tory MP called on #HMRC to launch an immediate investigation into the XR tax affairs
mol.im/a/7566515
/1.
Paid XR activists who call for collective guilt & punitive #taxes on the western #taxpayer are enabling new breed of green capitalism, that make select few fabulously rich, while the rest of us choke down meatless hamburgers & pay our #politicians to tax us into oblivion
/2.
Climate Mobilization’s call to action has also managed to unite leftists & anti-capitalists with the global elite. Extinction Rebellion’s call for “net zero” atmospheric carbon is shared by The World Bank, and a host of neoliberal think-tanks & financiers
