Re: Pinnochio Alert

I think the approximate value of a good quarter section homestead plot serves as a perfect benchmark for the estate tax exemption.

Re: Pinnochio Alert

Could have paid the taxes, $500/acre and had the remaining equity. If his or his fellow heirs other financial circumstances influenced determining a solution then.....?

Who do you think reads these entries?

I can almost hear the teardrops fall as he recited his sad story to other “good folks” with their elbows on the bar and no frame of reference for how something actually works.

What did it sell for when he got “sold out”? $490. When was this? 1972?

Re: Pinnochio Alert

If this even remotely a serious conversation we’d get back to Don’s ideas on it.

The big kahuna is the adjustment of cost basis that heirs receive.

$Ts of never taxed capital gains will pass to heirs in the next decade.

No less a stellar Minnesota Republican than Fritz Knaak ( you being a long time Party policy shaper and committed activist I’m sure you’re familiar with Fritz. Might even know him. I could ask some of my acquaintances in the Blue Earth County GOP if they think you might know him, butthey’d probablygive me the same quizzical look they gave me when I asked them previously about you...”Who?) backed water on the story and confirmed the ballots.

No less slimey Minn Republican than Tim Pawlenty knew that as well, but in the best traditional fashion continued to cast shade.

Re: Pinnochio Alert

Which likely speaks to the extenuating external factors that would have created circumstances where a fat deal couldn’t be taken advantage of.

But not, these “pore” good people lost The Family Farm.

Anyone who doesn't want to go to the polls can request an absentee ballot.

Re: bad at math

Which is exactly what is happening everywhere that matters.

The few states that already have full vote by mail aren’t in play anyway.

Nancy wants total vote by mail everywhere. They need the chaos.

 “On Wednesday morning Sen. Norm Coleman led Al Franken by 725 votes. By Wednesday night the lead was 477 votes. By Thursday night it was 336. As of Monday morning, it’s 204.” (Joe Fryer, KARE 11 News). Now, I don’t know this Joe Fryer or any of the other Minnesotan journalists, so maybe he is a right-wing nut job, but no one has repudiated the numbers, so it seems likely that they are accurate. If they are accurate, then the numbers do seem dubious and concerning. 

(it's not who votes that matters...it's who counts the votes.)

Re: bad at math

PS the reflex action would be to bring up Bush/Gore 2000 and rehash that fiasco, but the bottom line in that contest was that Bush led from start to finish, and the Supreme Court stopped the cherry picking of only looking for ballots in leftist leaning precincts. A lot of people never acknowledged that.
