British Private Purchase Cutlass based on the Pattern 1889 Cutlass

Made by Wilkinson for civilian use aboard merchant vessels and yachts. Very similar to the Navy issue weapon, these swords were manufactured with brass grips (as opposed to iron), and were fitted with a scabbard release button.

The sword is 33.5 inches (83.75 cm) long overall. The blade is 28 inches (70 cm) long, straight, single edged, and unfullered. There is a dramatic 11 inch (27.5 cm) false edge. The only marking on the blade is the manufacturer’s trademark on the obverse forte, a rectangular stamped cartouche, containing: “MANUFACTURED BY THE / WILKINSON Sd. Coy LONDON.”

4 13 28 31 70 75 for Lance

Thanks! Enjoy my fellow friend

“How long do we have?” You asked, getting back into the passenger side of the blue truck and placing some snacks at your feet.

“Uhhhhmmmmm.” Lance watched as you rolled up the window directly in his face, he then gave a straight face and ran around to the other side.

“Thanks!” He said, you both smiled sarcastically at each other, while Lance pointed to the GPS.

34 more hours.

-

An hour or two passed by, when you noticed that the GPS was changing routes every few minutes.

“Lance.”

“Uh yeah.”

“What the hell.

“It was an accident! I swear!”

“Do you ever follow directions?” You sighed and placed your forehead against your palms.

Lance had pulled over by now, his face covered with his large hands as he groaned.

“Look, I’m sorry! I didn’t mean it. I should’ve known this would’ve happened. I’m such an idiot.” He hissed the last part out, in hopes you wouldn’t hear it, but you did.

“You may be an idiot, but you’re my idiot.” You smiled at him and tried your best to hug him without bumping into anything.

“How about I drive? I know this car is important to you but I promise I won’t crash it. Do you trust me?”

“Yeah I do.” He got out of the car and so did you, switching spots in the front and smiling at Lance who reached in the back for some candy, occasionally feeding it to you.

-

Later on, Lance had insisted you take a left rather than a right, you insisted on taking a right rather than a left. A problem.

“Look! That sign says that this checkpoint is that way! To the left, Y/n! So we go to the left!” He groaned, getting frustrated.

Bleh bleh go to the left wah wah! I say we go right, it’ll make it more adventurous!” You grinned.

“Did you just mock me, Y/n?” Lance placed his hand against his chest and leaned back, pretending to be shocked and hurt that you’d do that.

“My hobby is making fun of you when you talk, so yes Lance, yes I did.” You smiled as wide as you could and turned on the blinker to turn right.

“Don’t you dare, Y/n, or so help me I will-”

“Is, is that a threat I hear coming on? Oh no it can’t be, my Lance would never.” You ended up turning anyway and pulling into the nearest gas station.

“Why didn’t you just say we were getting gas I was losing my mind.”

“Eh, I like to push your buttons.” You shrugged, leaned over and kissed his cheek, getting out of the car and going to get some waters in the store.

Why do conservatives love cutting taxes when the country is going broke?

Well first let’s deal with the fact that your question has one outright lie.
The federal government is broke…the country is not, it’s had very slow growth for over a decade, but the country isn’t broke, it’s the government that is broke.

Second the federal government’s debt problems have little to do with tax policy and everything to do with spending. Right now the government spends more money than it takes in. That right there is the whole problem. It needs to spend less. A lot less. You could do this rather easily by condensing most means based welfare and entitlement programs that currently operate huge bureaucracies and inefficiently deal with the problem of poverty and need by switch to the UBI which could probably save about anywhere from 0.6-1.1 Trillion a year and ensure that no citizen in America actually fell below the poverty line (costs less does more, only government could be stupid enough not to embrace such a plan). There are of course a lot of other things (long term foreign policy which costs more in the short run but significantly less in the long run), removing redundant departments, giving bureaucracies that the state can run on their own back to the states, etc. It would take time to unravel this, but it could be done with relative ease if anyone was actually out to get anything done but 30 years of inept presidents and congresses have made that all but impossible.

So the problem is spending not taxes.

But here is the problem with your question. The implication is that we should be raising taxes to dig ourselves out of the hole. The problem with that is that there exists this little thing called the Laffer Curve. It states that at a certain point you can raise taxes so much that it causes the economy to slow down. After all after you have certain needs met, the time you spend on working more to get that raise, to start that side business, to earn the overtime hours just isn’t worth it if you’re not actually getting to take the money home with you. Granted it’s different for different people with different needs and different tax brackets. But, research and study has shown that the overall number is 33% is roughly the level you can tax a nation and get the most out of them, after that you’re taxing too much and you’ll actually take in less money. US GDP was in 2016 $18 Trillion and all levels of government collected about $6.56 Trillion roughly 36% or 3% more than we should be collecting for the highest revenue for the government. So really if you want the government to have more money you should want to cut taxes a little more.

But I will admit there are stupid populists under the name of conservative that would cut it well below that 33%. (Although honestly if you want the economy to do best you want it a little below that 33%…but the idiot populists would cut it well below that level).

However, the non-populist coversative would be more about making the system more functional so that you can collect that roughly 33% in the way that would cause the least hurt to the economy. The flat and FAIR taxes are one way. Free trade reform which would end the huge amount of tariffs that hurt our economy would be another. Lowering the corporate tax rate while eliminating the obscene number of crony deductions.

But thank you for a complaint nearly 3 decades out of date when we were cutting the top rate from 70% to 28%.
