WOW, the neo-cons must be really really worried. I wonder how much G&T paid for that lot? :rolleyes: But then again he probably deducted it. :cheesy:

HaHa Yes you are right Cider, again we agree. The neocons have been worried for quite some time, ever since Mr Trump got elected and even before, remember George HW giving the cut throat sign toward Mr Trump at the debate?  Just like the rest of the crooks are worried,  both democrats and republicans, especially  (neocon republicans).  But We The People are excited. We want the swamp drained. The lies and deceit spewed by both sides are coming to the surface! Mr Trump knows what he is doing. He has suckered the crooked suckers. Good job Mr Trump you have taken many cheap shots for your country and We, The People, thank you Sir!  Drain the swamp!

Hey, Cider, how many deductions do you refuse to take just so you can pay more taxes?
No need to answer, We already know.

I don't think you understand what a neo-con is.  They are generally republicans that are warmongers.  They are usually socially liberal but want to make war on everyone.  In other words, they are liberals who didn't like the pacifist leanings of the Dems years ago, and switched parties.  They can now switch back because the Dems are more in tune with them than the Republicans.  The reason they became never Trumpers is that Trump made it a part of his policy to withdraw from wars that were not ours and were pointless. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

You only need to look at the tone of the videos to see the neo-con republicanism ousing out. You don't like being tarred with the neo brush, unfortunately for you, the neo's are the republican party. It's in the blood. :rolleyes: :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:

Gift tax to a charity, I don't receive anything but the charity gets back the tax they would have paid on my donation. A small amount I know but when thousands do the same it can be substantial. :smile:

???????  Charities here don't pay taxes. How crude are you Londoners, anyway?

PS.  Trump gives his whole salary to charity.

It's not about the brush.  It's about the accuracy of the terms.  There may be neocons here.  I am not among them. Good to know that you consider yourself an expert on American political labels though.   :wink:
