Do the newly declassified and mostly released documents suggest to you that there was a conspiracy to assassinate President Kennedy?

Yes - Oswald couldn't have done it alone
No - there still is no evidence of a second shooter
Maybe, but it's too soon to tell
We'll never know
Something else what?

Thomas, please. The range between Oswald's rife and Kennedy was roughly 100 yards. Look it up. There is no rifle in the world, not even one made by Italians, that will shoot its rounds in a way that would cause them to tumble after only 100 yards. The only reason that rifle rounds ever tumble, is when they are transitioning down from supersonic to subsonic. No military-grade rifle in the world is subsonic at only 100 yards, not even an Italian one.

And of course no one else has "come forward." Whoever the second shooter was, he was either a part of the black ops world and took his secret to the grave, or he was eliminated quietly shortly after he completed his mission.

Sayfullo Saipov.

Probably a nice Jewish lad from Tel Aviv, NOT!

You could try to implement all those regulations on truck rentals or you could focus on those renting the trucks.

Not to Big Bubba Jones from Atlanta, Georgia is not a domestic terrorist but when a guy named Sayfullo Saipov wearing a beard rents a truck, might want to rent him one with GPS tracking and only after calling Sheriff Joe and the FBI

Ah, ironic sarcasm - I like it.

Have a grand evening.

The bike path massacre was a tragedy to be sure, and we must act now to prevent another one. Clearly, the laws we have on the books are not enough, and whether or not we choose to enforce them, we need more laws and restrictions. Perhaps we simply should ban Home Depot from renting trucks or at minimum impose a 30-day waiting period before HD hands over the keys.

Plus, we need to limit the gas tanks of assault trucks to enough fuel for ... say, no more than 100 meters movement at a time. Then you have to reload ... sorry, refill.

Since rental trucks, and not radical Islamists, kill people, the government should focus on the trucks and not the people holding ... sorry, driving them.

This should make Veeblefester and his ilk happy. In my opinion.

You're right about the ease at which people can arm themselves and attack others in the US. Nothing will actually prevent it until the news stops making money with it. In the meantime, the only prudent act of prevention is not to allow potential attackers from foreign nations add to our own 'nut list'.

To allow sanctuary cities is to say 'nuts welcome here'. I pretty much disregard terrorist acts in sanctuary cities. After all, they are not regarded as terrorists in those locales - but rather as welcome guests. I don't want to spoil the party.

"Don't you ever get tired of spouting so much crap?"

No, he doesn't. It's just more of the PPO crowd.

What does tax reform have to do with the alleged acts of Mr. Manafort and Mr. Gates 5 years ago?

Pres. Trump may have ideas of how he would like this work; but, he needs to work with both Houses of Congress. Something, Mr. Big Ears refused to do; even with his own party.

More God Robb Poppycock.

Don't you ever get tired of spouting so much crap?

It's called "washing" money, and it's not hard to do, as most criminal enterprises engage shady dealers, I don't think it was $20 million, perhaps it was, you can open the indictment and all the transfers and fake entities are listed.

I don't know what those activities have to do with tax reform other than compliance will be easier for both the tax payer and IRS.

If you eliminate the three sacred cows, socialize the standard deduction, yes it is fair.

Let's look at SALT. The high tax burden states are NY,NJ,CT, they are about 15% higher than the next tier of states.

So the question is, why should the low burden states, NH,TN,TX, etc subsidize these folks. The Property tax write off is not limited to primary residence, I could have 3 or 4 homes. What about the folks who rent. Is that fair?

150 million plus folks are in an employer based health care plan. The employer paid benefit is income tax free to the employee. Some folks are not in a group, independent contractors, commissioned sales people, etc. They pay for health insurance with after tax dollars.

Is that fair?

The people you hear screaming the loudest, have the most to lose, but they could care less about the "other guy".

To describe Trumps' plan any other way is being dishonest, but who knows what it will look like.

But he has to sign it. Not Chuck Schumer, or Gov Cuomo.

One of the interesting things about the indictments, especially in this time of tax reform, is the ease with which Paul Manafort and Rick Gates laundered nearly $20 million dollars over a period of nearly 10 years, and avoided taxes. They set up over 30 companies and partnerships in the United States and abroad. These entities opened bank accounts in Cyprus, the Grenadines and Britain.
Instead of making payments for services directly to the United States bank accounts of Mr. Manafort and Mr. Gates, their Ukrainian clients sent money to those foreign bank accounts.
Does anyone believe that trump will set up a fair tax system that shares the burden equally?

Robert, you have the same problem as trump. You either need to admit you were wrong (because comparing the security challenges of NYC and Jerusalem is stupid), or just let it go.
The Israelis tightly control who comes into their country, and then have extensive checkpoints to check who is travelling where. Neither is possible in NYC. Anyone in the US can rent a car and drive into NYC. Unlike in Israel, it is easy to buy weapons outside of NYS and bring them into the city.
