James D., It depends on when you move and establish residency elsewhere. Income is taxed at a yearly rate. Consult a lawyer, but if you move out of state, your aren't taxed on money earned out of state. If you win a lottery anything after you move out of state isn't earned income in your prior state.

MM, I don't know what that is referenced to, but if I won the lottery I would move to Florida. Texas would be a second choice. Anything to avoid state taxation of lottery winnings in NJ. Even saving a few months of taxation by the home state would be worth it. You don't have to stay there, just establish residence, and you can travel anywhere. Except maybe back to your home state where they may put the evil eye on you. State lotteries used to be tax-exempt until the states got greedy for revenue. So, if you win, and move out of state, your home state, through lost taxes, is paying for your new home. I just love the concept. Tweak the legislature with a letter to the editor. Thank you NJ for subsidizing my new home. I'm sorry, but I bought my new furnishings and two new cars in Florida. Everything I would have bought in NJ I'm buying down here.

MM, Yes, the tourist deaths in the DR may be a statistical anomaly, but why take a chance? Better to visit Mexico and get killed by a cartel.

I had thought that TDS had peaked some time ago. I was obviously wrong. This latest outburst seems to presage the next 18 months. Truly amazing that profit seeking businesses are willing to trash their own companies to virtue-signal with silly arguments. A smart entrepreneur is busy building Ravelrys replacement right now.

Dollhouses too. I love dollhouses. And weaving with my father. OMG, I'm freaking Gay and had no idea. I still support Trump.

Ravelry, I've never knit, but both my father and I wove on little looms, maybe 4 inches square, to create Afghan pieces. My father wove rows together my mom sewed the rows together. We still have some in the family. Creating the squares required some concentration as the last step was doing the weaving, but it was also quite relaxing.

RG, Further. "Pro se" defendants are usually granted some leeway in state. I don't know about out of state. It's up to the judge. Some hate "pro se, others get into it.

MM, I think the Iranians are looking to launch some missiles at Israel after an American attack. Anything after that will cast us as the "Great Satan" waging Israel's war.

RG, Quiet title? Is that like a quit claim deed? Those are supposed to be straight-forward honest claims. If it is being dressed up as something else, that's not kosher. If he knows the correct address and lot number, etc., I would write a letter to the Registrar of Deeds, or whatever the local variant, and stake a claim and have it placed on record. If money is involved, claim a lien on the property. One of our lawyers might have a better idea.

James D., I like your thinking. I see no point in paying off student debt, but if we have to, sucking up university endowments and foundation funds are the way to go.

Ack, I don't know why this isn't working.... We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy. Posted by: Robin | June 24, 2019 at 06:19 AM --------- Robin, this is a really odd position for a user-supported web site to adopt. It is in itself supremely biased to suggest that trump is racist. If I was running a commercial web-site it would be apolitical. Any political complaint would be dealt with a "We don't do political here, feel free to avoid our site."

As I suspected, Powerline is not enthused with the Strib report on Omar. https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/06/from-the-mixed-up-files-of-rep-ilhan-omar-12.php https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/06/from-the-mixed-up-files-of-rep-ilhan-omar-finale.php This make me wonder if the Strib published its' Omar story under duress. Powerline has been beating the Strib over the head on this for quite some time.

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/06/the-bad-economics-of-reparations.php Basically, any argument in favor of reparations is flawed in one regard or another. This just happens to be a very easy one to knock down.

Are recent college graduates so stupid that they don't realize that they will still have to pay for their forgiven student debt with much higher taxes?

And it is a bidding war. Who can give away the most? Bernie seems to be in the lead right now with his bid to eradicate 1.6 trillion in student loan debt.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/she-gave-her-estranged-husbands-guns-to-the-cops-they-arrested-her-for-theft/ar-AADjmcg?li=BBnb7Kz It's complicated. She didn't have the guns. She broke into his apartment to get them. Of course, there are all kinds of people defending her. Me, makes me wonder about her prior testimony. I'd like the ability to self-remedy all kinds of things without paying attention to the law. So-snd-so threatened to kill me, so I killed him first.

Pin, This one? Don't remember it. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120086/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1 I've been trying to find this one for a while. "V" had an early run and they re-booted it for 23 episodes in 2009. It wasn't intentional, but it looked like a parody of the first year of Obama. I watched every episode, but it was no longer an abstract idea of aliens taking over the world, because Obama was doing the same damn thing.

Marine training exercises will be conducted against other countries Marines. Sounds like both sides would benefit.

https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/paris-air-show/2019/06/17/european-leaders-unveil-model-of-next-gen-fighter-aircraft-at-paris-air-show/ A 6th generation fighter? I'm not impressed. More like a late 5th generation fighter or vaporware. https://www.defensenews.com/digital-show-dailies/paris-air-show/2019/06/21/lockheed-hypes-f-35s-upgrade-plan-as-interest-in-sixth-gen-fighters-grows/ The F-35 is similar to that Olds advertisement, "It's not your father's Oldsmobile." The F-35 has received several software upgrades since the first one was built and now that they are in the air they are building new weapons for it. I suspect the F-35 with new networking software and "buddy" drones will be the first 6th gen plane. If the SR-72 we wrote about last night is in real development it may be the first 6th gen plane.

Pence, in an interview, also mentioned that Tehran may not have ordered the drone strike. Did that come from an intercept, or, I think more likely, from Tehran, itself, through a 3rd nation? If the latter, was some deal struck we don't know about? Off on a tangent - CBS-TV, channel 2 NYC, is changing its' over-the-air broadcast frequency this Thursday. You will need to re-scan for the new frequency after 1 PM if you use an over-the-air antennae as I do.

http://www.startribune.com/new-documents-revisit-questions-about-rep-ilhan-omar-s-marriage/511681362/ I'm surprised the Strib published this. It's very neutral and accommodating, but it doesn't completely cover for her. Powerline may have something to say about this. I won't be at their site til later.

That's not an unusual thought among many gays - they are uncomfortable with flaming displays that stereotype the rest of them. I read somewhere that foreign interest in NYC residences has also fallen. Democrats knit?
