The Internal Revenue Service plans to alter the standard 1040 form by putting this question on the front page: At any tim...

The Tax Moves Day Traders Need to Make Now

(snip) Many new traders likely aren’t aware they are trading in taxable accounts, where each sale has tax effects. (Robinhood customers can’t trade within retirement accounts such as traditional or Roth IRAs, where sales aren’t taxable.) Next year, many will be surprised to receive long tax forms fo...

People Want to Know Why Don Jr. Looked Like That at the RNC

It’s been an eventful first evening of the 2020 Republican National Convention, and it may have reached its pinnacle midway through the 10 p.m. ET hour when Donald Trump Jr. took the virtual stage to deliver a speech about how great his dad, Donald Trump, is. But a lot of folks on the internet quick...

Covid-19 Is Dividing the American Worker

For many professionals, technology has been a lifeline during the pandemic, enabling them to be productive while stuck at home. For many other workers, it is a new dividing line, corralling them further into the stagnant corners of the economy. The pandemic has led to unemployment of workers in the ...

John Eastman, a law professor at Chapman University should be fired

Yes, the author of the piece in Newsweek "questioning" the legitimacy of Harris to serve as V.P. Even if Harris' parents were not citizens at her birth, she was born in the United States. Trump does not like the fact that many pregnant women come to this country so that their newborn would be U.S. c...

Re: The Demise of the OC Weekly

Yes, I am afraid that our friendly virus will drive the last nails into the Postal Service and print publications. Strange to visit a doctor's office and not having any magazine to leaf through.

George Argyros? The worst ambassador (to Spain) that this country had?

In reality, though, John Wayne hated the airport.

I donated most of the stimulus funds

Back in March, when it was announced, I knew that we did not need the $2400. We are retired, did not lose any jobs and our Social Security Benefits are still arriving (fingers crossed) and am withdrawing from IRA as needed, about half of what the RMD would have been (the other half is being rolled o...

The Demise of the OC Weekly

Yes, just found out about it. One more nail in the demise of the print media, even before the virus. (snip) The newsweekly, which was founded in 1995, had been offloaded from Voice Media Group to local publisher Duncan McIntosh in 2016. The next year, OC Weekly’s editor Gustavo Arellano, who is now ...
