We Don't Need No Stinking... Tax Cuts

Issue

As Tax Day quickly approaches, step by step, inch by inch... Americans' limited knowledge about the U.S. tax code can shift public opinions about paying taxes and why some are proud to pay, while others never pay and some refuse to say.

Tax Day marches aim to pressure Trump to release his returns http://usat.ly/2oKiDw5

Americans still want to see Trump's tax returns. And some are about to protest over it. http://bit.ly/2pkJnBd

Are your taxes “fair”? http://brook.gs/2o3ufdk

10K STEPS

Solution

Walking 10,000 steps a day is recommended for adults to engage in 150 minutes of moderate activity a week, such as brisk walking. The average adult walks around 6K steps a day.

Some scientists have found the relationship between metabolic risk in adults and the time spent sitting, standing and stepping have not been well established.

Studies continue aimed to determine associations of objectively measured time spent sitting, standing, and stepping, with coronary heart disease.

Who Do You Trust?

Idea

Back in the 50's, a young Johnny Carson hosted the famed TV show called "Who Do You Trust?" Fall 1959 Louie/Loa vs. Henry/Dorothy vs. Lt. Don/Charlotte

Here is a vintage episode of who Do You Trust, a banter-style game show in the style of You Bet Your Life from the fall of 1959. Who Do You Trust? Fall 1959 https://youtu.be/u4dlKgvlpMw

Nowadays, YouTube poses a similar question. For example, @realdonaldtrump said he loved WikiLeaks. Last year, Donald Trump said, "I love WikiLeaks!" 10/10/16 https://youtu.be/mUtT0b0EnSw

We Dont Need No Stinking... Flip Flops

Issue

President Trump boasts that he hires only the best people, but is anyone trying to explain how his personal hires like Michael, Paul, and Carter, Kelly Anne, Steve, Saun, and Reince are the best people? These choices may continue to hold up Trump's get tired of winning promises. The American voters may be getting sick and tired of the constant flip flops.

As far as promises kept, inaccurate comments, accusations without proof, and the list just keep on growing. Trump has been in the White House for less than 100 days, yet he's already reversed himself on many of his key campaign promises. Trump called China the “world champions” of currency manipulation just 10 days ago. He said NATO was obsolete and has reversed himself yet again.

Trump flips on NATO, China currency. Broken promises? http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/opinion/the-conversation/sd-donald-t...

Effective Communications

Idea

While US Attorney General Jeff Sessions was outlining the Trump administration's Immigration Plan, which appears to be horrifying, I was crossing state lines on a very important mission.

My baby girl Sabrina while in the area on business invited me to have dinner at a delightful Italian Restaurant near Montclair State University. We had a chance to catch up and this proud grandpa also watched videos and drooled over images of my grandkids. (For them, visit these.) https://www.instagram.com/sabrina_soto/ * https://www.instagram.com/natashasoto/

Criminal Immigration

Problem

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Customs and Border Patrol personnel at the United States-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona that he has issued the attached memo to United States Attorneys that mandates the prioritization of criminal immigration enforcement. The memo directs federal prosecutors to focus on particular offenses that, if aggressively charged and prosecuted, can help prevent and deter illegal immigration.

We Don't Need No Stinking... FSC

Issue

We Don't Need No Stinking... Forensic Science Commission. The people require independent research.

Junked by the Justice Department as not necessary. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced the discontinuance of the National Commission on Forensic Science. The group is an independent panel of experts chartered to raise evidentiary standards in criminal cases.

Sessions also announced the suspension of a review of FBI testimony about forensic techniques. An internal Justice Department review now will evaluate those techniques.
