   Grahamcracker  Just a question for all you astute LDotters: Where are the Obozos spending
Christmas this year? Remember when we treated them to 2 weeks in Hawaii every year for 8 years? Are they going there on their own dime this year? Inquiring minds want to know. Merry Christmas to all of you. May the blessings of the season be with all of you in the coming year.

   MeiDei  No search yet turned up how the 0bama's are spending Christmas, just stories mocking Trump for possibly being in Florida after criticising 0's abscence from the WH @ Christmas. I think it's safe to say, the 0's only travel on OPM.

   StormCnter  They are apparently in Hawaii for Christmas. They also spent Thanksgiving there, I believe.

   MeiDei  The article, same source as I used but not same write-up, doesn't say how they got there or where they're staying. Do you think they flew commercial, staying in a hotel?

   StormCnter  Mei, I can find no further information. They're keeping a very low profile while there.

   Safetydude  What's wrong with this FOX News headline: "SUV Rams Crowd in Sydney, Australia"?

   StormCnter  Well now we'll have to ban SUVs since they seem to be acting as terrorists. I assume that one was driverless?

   Safetydude  Roger that.
The SUV took it upon itself commit an act of terrorism.
We have to ban driverless vehicles before they destroy us all.

   MeiDei  For those of us unable/unlikely to visit Epcot here's President Trumps animatron from the Hall of Presidents:




The face isn't quite right and I wondered why they didn't use his usual red tie. What do you think?

   Envirodude  The guys over on reddit determined that the robot was repurposed from Hildebeast. The pictures of the two are funny.

They probably did it to insult Trump. But in reality, it’s the closest she’ll ever get to the presidency again.

   MeiDei  The comparison in your post above strongly suggests they repurposed Hillary's face. Disney should do the right thing and make a new one.

   Gram77  Hi All....You know I am not the brightest when it comes to government, etc. Anyway, I decided to call the Social Security department and see why the raise in Social Security that was raved about did not appear in my yearly letter from Social Security. Pretty simple, Medicare went up and that figure was deducted from my S.S. Does any one remember the last time we really did get a raise?

   StormCnter  And what did the SS office tell you, Gram? My check went up $1.43. Yippee.

   Gram77  I was told that Medicare increased and that was deducted from my S.S. money. So I will get exactly what I have been getting for the last 2 years. Wow, $1.43? Sounds like a cruise might be in order. : )

Just read the article above. I read elsewhere there is a commercial 'Guard your Card', I believe is the name. I haven't seen it.

Don't you think everyone should have a new SS card? ...given the massive Equifax breach? Our bank is providing our FICO score monthly.

   TexaTucky  I know it's "just business" and all, and business needs revenues, but it sure is a shame this pop-up keeps popping up lately. A poll that FauxtoShops our president into a human anole at full-throated puff out.

   Tessie  I remember it. It used to be a go-to place whenever Lucianne.com was out. Do a search on Politics and Friends Delphi Forum. I haven't visited the site in awhile so I'm not sure if they're still there or if defunct.

   Fireball27  Can anyone on here make sure President Trump see this note? I hope so. I would like to see President Trump, make a big deal about not mentioning "sanctuary" cities anymore. He should come out and say we will not be calling them "sanctuary cities" for harboring illegals. We will now call these places what they actually are, Aiding and Abetting Cities"! He could say since these Aiding and Abetting cities do just that, aid and abet criminals with identity theft, among other crimes, this is what we will call them from now on! They can't refute these claims. Just watch the fireworks.

   Tulsa  No publicity on this item. None. Be advised that both the House and Senate plan to eliminate the personal exemption which is $4,100. For a couple, of course, that is 8,200.

Subtract $8,200 from $24,000 and the deduction is down to $15,900.

Since both houses agree to eliminate this, there will be no discussion to keep the personal deduction unless we all write and raise sand. I doubt there is a lobby for this.

Now we read it here.(link below ) Is a true or a lie? I do not know, but we we have called our Senators' state offices and emailed too.

   MeiDei  The personal deduction [single filers] is eliminated but the standard deduction is nearly double what it is currently [from $6000 to $12,000 or approx. $2000 more than what currently is std + prsnl]. For married the standard deduction is approx. $4000. more than current standard + personal deduction. Until we know what the deductions for medical, property taxes, charity, loses, etc. and what constitutes income i.e., earned, unearned, insurance, winnings, etc., it's premature to worry over something that isn't final yet ... 'tho certainly making your concerns known is always a good thing. If you hear back I hope you'll share the info.

   Tulsa  Morning Mei. The Personal Exemption was eliminated in both the House and Senate bill, if the above article is true. They are now in conference to reconcile the two bills. Since they are in agreement on this item, it will be eliminated unless many voices are raised. Not worried, but it's now or never time.
