The Beach City “Filler” episodes are about to pay off.

Here me out just for a minute, One of the biggest complaints in the Steven Universe fandom usually involves the episodes revolving around the beach city residents. As we can see in the trailer for the new Steven Bomb, Homeworld is abducting these very characters. I cant be the only one that got chills when Steven said “Sadie never came home?” and it’s probably because we know Sadie so well. Imagine the shock and emotion we’ll feel seeing Sadie, one of the nicest characters in the show, scared and alone in the Zoo. Basically what I’m saying is: without the “slice of life” episodes, this upcoming arc would have a much lesser impact. 

The night starts with a big, spicy Philly cheese steak. It’s about 6pm. I’ve been wanting to try the cheese steak from this corny, 50’s retro place for a long time. I gobble down the big greasy bowl of meat, hot sauce, and cheese, then head to the coffee shop for my weekly draw group. A little after I get home, about 10pm, a stomach ache comes on. “Damn, guess spicy foods are out.” I’ve been getting stomach aches every time I have spicy Thai or hot wings. I google search about spice pain- possible stomach ulcer? “I guess I have been stressed lately, but no more than usual I don’t think…” File under “Will investigate further later.“ According to the comments on this health website, a glass of milk will help. Gulp one down, go to bed.

Wrestle to sleep for about an hour. Realize the ache is just over the required pain threshold to keep you from sleeping. Do some work on my comic, more tired, but stomach worse. Will play batman until I fall asleep. I feel like I’m just running in circles… How many times have I failed this mission? Batman, batman, stomach now hurts too bad to enjoy an active task like video games. Deliriously tired. Would be great to sleep through the rest of this abdominal temper tantrum. Try the old “hot shower will make you sleep” trick. Take some Pepto-Bismol, and some generic acetaminophen. Out of the shower, hurts to walk around now, and to lie down. Guess I’ll have to wait it out with my eyes open. Call and leave my Doc a message, maybe will get a spot in there tomorrow. Need to get that ulcer discovered… Time to enjoy a passive task like watching TV. Breaking Bad feels like the right mixture of funny and painful, just like me and my burning spice belly. Damn, I can’t even enjoy that part where during Hank’s interrogation of that meth head, Wendy, she accuses Hank of trying to buy sexual services from her on behalf of an underage “football player” (a misunderstanding involving Walter Jr. from a few episodes before). Oh hell. Time to look up what time emergency medical clinics open. Guess I’ll have to pay out of pocket since I can’t wait for my Doc tomorrow.  It’s about 4am now. Earliest clinic opens at 8. Now hungry again, but can’t eat what with all the pain. One hour down. Man, this is really starting to hurt. Can I really wait 3 more hours? Sitting is starting to hurt as much as lying and standing. And I’m still not enjoying TV. Okay, I’ve come to a decision…. 

“Hey, Kayla, my stomach still hurts, I’m thinking about driving to the ER, do you wanna come?” “Oh! Ya, sure. What time is it?” “It’s 5:30”. I  call the hospital “Hey, I’ve had a pretty bad stomach ache all night, I’m thinking of coming by.” Operator: *long pause* “Haha, well, okay! We’re open all night, so just come on in.” 

Driving with a stomach ache is not so bad, because you’re already hunched over. Wish Kayla could drive, but she doesn’t really know how, probably would have a panic attack and would definitely crash. Interesting that they have ER parking, I wonder how many ER patients drive themselves here… All bodily positions hurt my insides now, signing in to this place sucks. Give Kayla half the paperwork to fill out, glad she’s here, or this would be really boring. Man, they sure take a long time for someone trying to get into an empty emergency room… Signing in with a nurse, she ask me my height and I say “ ‘5’’8”, but I notice she puts down “ ‘5’’7”… They want to look at my pee, they always want to see my pee. I pee, no blood, so whatever that tells them means I’m getting an ultrasound first. Then a young nurse named Ken, a cool Asian dude with screws through both ears, squirts so much morphine into my IV that I lean back and audibly say “oh my god.” I feel it ripple like a shock wave from my arm down to the ends of my body. My belly is feeling alright now. 

The ultrasound technician tells me that babies are the least common thing she uses ultrasounds for. My joke has fallen flat. Back in the room, the doctor and his manila folder tell me “Good news! No gallstones, there are kidney stones inside your kidneys, but since they are inside, you shouldn’t be feeling the pain from those.” “Wait, does that mean I have to pee those stones out at some poin–” It is not discussed again. Seeing that neither organ has the appropriate stones, Doc would “rather not expose me to more radiation than necessary” and is working on discharging me. But, “I won’t leave here without a diagnosis.” 

In I go to the CT scan tube. That hot squish of contrast dye spreading through my veins. “Okay, we’re moving you into a room upstairs.” Says a hippy technician. Upstairs in my sweet and swanky single with couch, a person I’m pretty sure is just a businessman disguised in medical scrubs types on a computer. He takes down my answers to what seem like pre-surgery questions. “Do you have anybody specific on file in the event you are medically unable to yield consent  for yourself?” This, combined fact that they won’t feed me, makes me wonder what it is I’m going into surgery for. I saw this same thing about a year and a half ago with the whole brain debacle, but that’s a story for another time. Several medical people dip in, sprinkle breadcrumbs of information; it’s like a game show challenge that combines a scavenger hunt with a jigsaw puzzle. You have to gather the pieces of information from their hiding places, then assemble them in the correct order to reveal an answer. A tech comes in and spoils the game, “You seem to have a lot of questions, so I just want to make sure, you know you have appendicitis right? We’re about to take it out.” “Thank god,” I think. “It’s not the spicy foods. Spicy foods are still in.” Downstairs, in pre-op, I complain to my plain-clothes surgeon about how analog tests like pressing on my stomach are remarkably inaccurate, since a doctor’s subjective interpretation of my poor description of say, “the pain is slightly higher” can rule out appendicitis, the same appendicitis that a machine might spot an hour later. I tell him that I almost got sent home. My surgeon tells me he’s been doing analogue tests for 30 years, and not to worry about it. I start to tell him how “my deadpan reaction to pain also causes a lot of people to misdiagnose me, that a lot of people laugh when I describe how I’m in pai–”, but he walks away in the middle to get dressed for surgery. The operating room has big TVs and lights, it looks like a set, and I consider the possibility of fake hospitals as the anesthesia takes the wheel.

In the recovery area, the nurse tells me how big, inflamed appendixes can be agitated by spicy foods, foods high in fat, and dense foods like heavy cheese. I see an image of a spotlit cheese steak appear in a black void. Nurse feeds me ice chips and tells me she craves ice chips when she’s dehydrated. I suggest that she only craves ice chips because she works in a hospital, that ice chips are too unsatisfying a thing to crave at random, and that most people would just crave water. She agrees. Back upstairs in my room, it is now 8pm, and it has been 26 hours since I’ve eaten. I’ve been hydrated only through IV’s. The driest mouth and the clearest pee. Because the lingering anesthetic can cause nausea and vomiting, they will only give me jello. I go nuts on the jello. They continue to give me every jello I ask for, one at a time, like a test. Way past where I though the cutoff point would be, the nurse tells me “That’s it! There’s no more jello! You ate all the jello on this floor.” You’re damn right I did, you’re damn right….

PROPOSALS

▹ pairing: Jeongguk x reader
▹ words: 18,102 I’m so sorry 
▹ genre: smut, fluff, light angst, friends to lovers

You and Jeongguk propose at restaurants to get free food, but somewhere along the way you start to fall for him.


You never thought Jeongguk would actually take you up on the whole fake proposals thing. When you had suggested the idea to him, he’d just laughed and said “yeah”, then continued playing Fallout 4. You hadn’t actually meant it; the idea was one of those you vaguely imagine it happening, but not really, which is why when he brought it up weeks later suggesting you try it out, you thought he was kidding. 

He wasn’t, and this is how you end up in one of the city’s nicer restaurants on a fake date with your best friend.

Witchcraft Authors to Avoid

None. And I’ll tell you why.

I know, I know. I’m a horrible person. How could I possibly agree with all of these horrible authors? But here’s the thing: You don’t have to–and shouldn’t–agree with an author 100% just because you read them. 

Instead of telling beginner witches not to read books or presses, I think we should tell them to read A LOT of source material instead, and read with a critical eye. Here are some things to look out for:

Pay attention to when it was published. Yes, I know Scott Cunningham’s info is old and not often followed anymore. And in ten years, my information will be outdated, and so will yours. Witchcraft trends change. Yarrow and rue used to be very popular beginner plants, because they are commonly found in many areas of North America. Nowadays, it’s more popular to use kitchen spices such as cinnamon and rosemary, and therefore these two herbs became outdated and are no longer used for what they were originally used for. This is something to keep in mind when reading a book from 1988.

(As a side note, different witches use different techniques and materials. I use bloodstone to connect with ancestors; I’ve never seen any other death witch do that. That doesn’t mean I’m wrong, it means I do things differently.)

Whenever you read a work, read critiques on it as well. Triumph of the Moon is well-written, and has a lot of acclaim! But it also has a lot of backlash–cultures the author glossed over, historical inaccuracies, biased claims, and the like. Read up on these critiques, even summaries. Hell, the amazon comments section and wikipedia articles even have some necessary critiques. I know tumblr can be an echo-chamber sometimes, but when you’re studying witchcraft, you shouldn’t remain in an echo-chamber. Read other sources. You’ll decide which one to agree with. 

Research the author. How you approach the work depends on how trustworthy the author is. If people have problems with them–if they’re historically inaccurate, or disregard other cultures–keep that in mind while you read. You don’t have to completely avoid an author just because they’re inconsiderate about some things, especially if that work is historically significant. I know Gerald Gardner was iffy at best, but I still recommend reading Witchcraft Today if you’re studying Wicca, because that book was a HUGE influence on modern day.

Don’t avoid a press entirely. I see a lot of people shitting on Llewellyn Worldwide. If you don’t know, that’s one of the biggest Pagan/Witchcraft publishing presses in the world, and they’ve been around for a long time. For those who aren’t familiar with how publishing works, there are two things to know about presses. (1) It is not the press’s job to fact-check people for inaccuracies; it’s the author’s. Especially in big presses, editors and curators are there to make sure the book is readable and sells. That’s it. (2) Presses often like to change their footprint. This means that they like to publish things that haven’t been published before, or, if their last book got shit on by the community, they’ll want to find an author who’s better. Hence, the quality of authorship varies in a press. So there’s no need to flat-out avoid presses.

Read with an open mind. These books are here for us to learn. They’re even here for us to learn what NOT to do, or what we don’t want as a witch. You should be disagreeing. You should be questioning. You should be asking other peoples’ opinions on the subject. Because at the end of the day, your craft is your own, and you want to make it as uniquely “you” as possible. 

To clarify, I’m not here to disregard anyone’s opinions of certain works. It is my opinion that people should form their own opinions of works, and learn from them. Especially beginners.

Thanks for your time. Have a good one ♡^▽^♡

Peter Parker x Shy Reader

Request: Yes

Summary: Peter and the Reader go to school together, however once Peter shows up at Stark tower, the Reader is curious as to why he is there.

Word Count: 1,930

Warnings: language, fluff, adorableness, talk of powers, annoying Tony, shy reader (bc I’m trash). (Err, that’s it?)

A/N: To the anon that requested this, I hope you like it! I sort of changed it up a little bit, so I hope you don’t mind. The length of this, I apologize, holy shit. I could not find a way to end this. *Also, the Reader’s powers are based on the character Catiana (in case you are wondering!) Please let me know what you guys think of it, I’d love some feedback. Enjoy reading!


Walking into school, you held tightly to your backpack and moved swiftly through the crowd, avoiding an “accidental” bump in with anyone that came unexpectedly.

Since you had a few minutes before your first class, you went to your locker and replaced the books in your backpack with the ones you needed today for classes.

Rolling your eyes and groaning as you picked up your heavy Algebra book, you stuffed it roughly into your backpack.

It’s not that you hated math, it’s just you weren’t that great at it, which definitely bothered you since you were in a class full of legit geniuses.

Not only did that class give you anxiety with being called on or not understanding anything, but it was also because there was one nerd who always caught your attention. The one that should probably be in college level math rather than Algebra in some high school. The one who looked so soft and cuddly. The one with the never ending collection of sweaters.

The one named, Peter Parker.

Y’know, I recognise that the way Paypal has handled introducing its new invoicing requirements has been clumsy at best, but that doesn’t change the fact that y’all should have been doing all that stuff anyway.

The invoicing practices they’re now insisting on aren’t a nice-to-have. They’re, like, the absolute bare minimum that anyone who does contract work should be following.

Clients falsely claiming non-delivery of services in order to stiff you for the bill isn’t just a Paypal thing - it’s an all-contract-work-everywhere-ever thing. Seriously, I’ve worked in consulting; I’d estimate that upwards of 50% of my clients made at least a token effort at weaseling out of paying, and that’s by no means unusual for many lines of work.

Issue formal invoices. Get everything in writing. Get explicit, documented acknowledgment that your client has read, understood and agreed to it all. It’ll save your ass more often than you’d think.

Oh Deer God.

Little backstory: I’m playing a game with my boyfriend and a few others who have been really wanting to play D&D for a while. My boyfriend is DM'ing so I’m playing a dragonborn paladin, and on the team is also a half-elf ranger, and a tiefling warlock. Well, after waking up from being dead (long story), we are now in a time when the world is ending, the gods have left, and everything is going to hell in a handbasket. We are led to the last bastion of civilization and we all go our own ways to do our own things. My paladin joins the guard because she just wants to help people, the ranger joins a group that goes out of the safe haven’s walls and scavenges for anything useful, and the warlock decides to do his own thing. This is the story of him doing his own thing.

Warlock: *heads to the druids tower to speak with the head druid who is a plant person* Hey, anything interesting going on here?

Plant person: Actually, I have this potion that I made that I’d be willing to pay you to test out. I have no idea what it does, but I’m fairly certain it’s safe.

Warlock: Works for me. *drinks the potion*

Plant Person: …

Warlock: …

Plant Person: … Well … how do you feel?

Warlock: Well … everything is tinged green … *turns into a deer and has to fight to keep his mental stats*

Plant person: Oh … huh. *takes notes* Um, can you understand me?

Warlock (OOC): I’m gonna fuck with him and pretend I can’t and- are there any plants in here?

DM: You’re in a druid’s tower. Of course there’s plants.

Warlock (OOC): Cool. I’m gonna start eating one.

Plant Person: Oh dear. Well … it should wear off in a few hours …

Warlock (OOC): Okay, now I’m gonna head outside and make my way to the infirmary.

DM: Okay, you make your way down the stairs and head outside, anything else you wanna do?

Warlock (OOC): I’m gonna strut my stuff.

DM (laughing): Roll a charisma check.

Warlock (OOC): *rolls a natural 20*

DM: The people believe that the gods have returned and that you are one of them walking among them. They throw money at your feet and start singing the praises of ‘Deer God’.

Me, the Warlock, and the Ranger (OOC): *laughing uncontrollably*

TL;DR: The warlock, in deer form, was so full of charisma, people started worshiping him as a god and it is now a running joke in our campaign whenever anyone says ‘dear god’ that we are now reminded of 'Deer God’.

[ELLINOR: Ahh, it’ll be great!

VILDE WØIEN: Oh my Goood, karaoke is hilarious! Hope you don’t have to have a good singing voice

VILDE: It’ll be super awesome!]

SANA: Did you feel like Sara was trying to hide something from us yesterday?

NOORA: Ehh.. no.. What?

SANA: I don’t know. I just have a bad feeling. If you think about it, those girls can just take the whole bus and throw us out. They’re paying for it.

NOORA: Yeha, but.. Why would they bother joining forces with us if they’re going to throw us out?

SANA: Because they wanted that bus.

NOORA: I don’t think they’re that psycho.

SANA: And didn’t Sara say she’d send me a copy of the contract?

NOORA: Yeah.. I don’t know. Maybe?

SANA: Yeah, she said so. But she hasn’t done it.

NOORA: Yeah.. How did that russ stuff become so important to you?

SANA: I have to ask her about that contract. Sara! Can I talk to you?

GIRL: Ehhh.. Yeah..

SANA: I was just wondering what’s up with the bus contract.

SARA: What do you mean?

SANA: Weren’t you supposed to send me a copy of the contract proposal?

SARA: I did! Didn’t I? I think I did.

SANA: I don’t think you did. Maybe you forgot to. Like how you forgot to add Noora and I to the bus page.

SARA: I think I sent it. Maybe I have the wrong e-mail address? Or that it ended up in the spam filter.

SANA: In the spam filter?

SARA: Because Mari’s copy did.

SANA: Oh. Here it is.

SARA: Good. Mari sent me a message syaing we have to have a contract meeting on Monday and you have to come because you’re the boss so.. Sana, it’s not my intention to boss around so much.. I’m just so used to being the bus boss and then stuff just happens.. But it’s not my intention to overlook you, in any way.

SANA: No, it’s okay.

SARA: But did you see the SYNG event?

SANA: Yeah.

SARA: It’d be cool if everybody came.

SANA: Yeah, we’re coming.

SARA: Fun! I feel like we have to fuse the buses a bit more. Get to know each other better.

SANA: True.

I did some digging, and I found this spreadsheet of monthly payments from Blossom Maple Farms to Lodge Industries, until about five months ago when they stopped. The payments, which are significant by the way, have been happening for 75 years. That’s a ton of money. What if Clifford implicated daddy to get out of paying the monthly fee?

serenofmadness  asked:

why shouldn't you mention PETA, HSUS, or Sea Shepherds. Im confused especially about why not HSUS so if you could clarify maybe

PETA is a radical animal rights group that wants to remove all animals from human control, including pets. They’d rather see all animals dead than in human care. PETA actively tries to fuck shit up, they’ll send people in as guests to trick educators into misspeaking, and I’m pretty sure they currently employ people who were high up in the group in the 90’s breaking into labs to free animals.

HSUS is generally not associated with your local humane society, and has exactly the same goals as PETA. I have personally sat in a panel when an HSUS rep said this directly - same goal, different tactics. HSUS likes to use legislation and lawsuits to get what they want done, and frequently write major holes into legislation they support to exploit later. AZA is partnering with HSUS only because they know HSUS would attempt to destroy them if they did not. Also, HSUS is paying out a ton of money for getting caught bribing someone during their lawsuit against Ringling.

Sea Shepherd is an organization that occasionally uses terrorist tactics to achieve their ends, like chasing and sinking whaling ships. They also do good education and have other activism projects, such as their vigil in Taiji. Their founder actually got kicked out of Greenpeace.

Anyone who supports these organizations is not someone a zoo will want to hire, both for ethos and because they probably can’t trust you to have access to anything behind the scenes.

I was doing you a favor by playing the long game...

I too was playing yet another long game by holding on to this for so long.

SO I had read earlier today the owner of a previous job of mine passed away. This was a place that tried to screw me pretty hard and I took some pro revenge on. It drug up some angry old feelings, so why not take an equal dose of catharsis?

WARNING: This is a doozy so strap in if you dare, no TL;DR it wouldn’t do justice.

So this takes place almost a decade ago. I was working as a department manager for a fairly large privately owned pest control company. Their color scheme was black and yellow, much like the taxi’s the owner’s dad used to drive. Since the taxi industry would be around for ever(hello Uber/Lyft) so would this pest control company, (this is important later) or so the owner used to parrot constantly. My job was to over see the techs doing treatments and set their stops and generally manage assorted insect control services, inventory, payroll for that dept, etc etc. I had taken the job from the owners son who took it from the previous manager who they demoted and yet stayed in the dept…this is important later. The owners son was a late 30’s early 40’s man child. I mean if he had dialed it back a few degrees he would have been an awesome guy, but anytime booze was involved he was a mess. If it was weed, he turned into the stereo typical obnoxious stoner making nothing but bad Jamaican accented jokes. He also hit on anything younger than him that moved…while being married w a pregnant wife. But I digress, the owner was a piece of work too, old Jewish guy who was as racist as he was old, not with any kind of seething hatred. Just a “this is the way it is” type attitude. My fave line of his, “The sky is blue, Ch#@ks know math, N@&ers are lazy, Jews know gold. What else is new” Like it was the most clever thing of all time. Finally now on to the revenge and need for such.

This tweet right here is a fucking disgrace.

This is actually quite personal for me because I know that if the SNP didn’t protect free tuition then I would not be able to attend university. Paying the £9000> that students pay in England is out the question.

I still believe that poorer families are at a disadvantage when it comes to education. For example, since first year I have had to work part time alongside my studies in order to afford food and pay rent. This has been while I’ve watched students from richer families cruise through university with all the time in the world and no financial stress.

In first year, I was working a 20 hour part time contract on top of my studies. That meant that I didn’t get a day off except Christmas as I was working in luxury fashion retail. I then worked in China over the summer in an embassy before restarting the same retail job…a job I despised but needed to have in order to pay my rent.

It wasn’t until last month that I changed jobs to something more enjoyable. However, I still needed to work to be able to pay rent. I am 20 years old and I’m having to finance myself through my studies.

And I continue to work. Because I want to be educated. I want to learn and I want to improve and qualify for jobs in the future.

If the Tories got their wish in Scotland and scrapped free tuition, there would not be a chance in hell of me attending university. The same goes for thousands of other Scottish students.

So it’s an utter disgrace when a newly elected Tory councillor comes out with this utter pish. And you know what makes it worse? This fucking bastard is 20 years old too. He’s the exact same fucking age as me and yet he’s working against people in his own age group to have the right to free education.

All Tories are scum.

It’s hard to believe we lost Prince a year ago today. While we don’t have an interview with Prince himself, we do have an interview with Questlove that was recorded in front of a live audience, shortly after Prince’s passing, in which Questlove shares some funny and surprising stories about him. 

Questlove On Prince, Doo-Wop And The Food Equivalent Of The ‘Mona Lisa' 

“We’re at Paisley Park [Prince’s studio and home in Minnesota], and I don’t know, maybe I let the s-word slip … and [Prince] was like, “Yeah, that’ll be a dollar.” He grabbed a water bottle and he said, “Actually, you’re rich. That’s $20.”

I said, “Huh?” and he said, “No cursing.” And I said, “Cursing! Wait, you’re the one that taught me how to curse.”

But the thing was, when I said that, I was really saying it to get out of paying 20 bucks, but I saw the look on his face. And when I walked away that night and went back to the hotel, I wondered if he really felt bad about that; if he thinks in his head, “Man, I’ve ruined a generation.” But he really felt that.

And I felt that with a lot of his secret philanthropy, and a lot of the Robin Hood stuff he was doing, I mean real deep political — saving schools, people to this day not knowing where this $3 million check came from, that was all him. I felt like maybe in the last 20 years of his life, he felt the need to overcompensate or pay forward what he feels that maybe he damaged some of us who grew up listening to his music.”

Can-can I mention something, really quickly?

Why did RNJR not take the train? Literally why did they not take the train? If RT wanted to make it seem like everything was shut down, that would be one thing. But at the end of the season we see Oscar get his happy ass to a train station and do what?

take the fucking train.

Now there are so many reasons why RNJR couldn’t have taken the train, but NONE of them were ever brought up. Like the fact that Oscar could have taken a local train. Except that RNJR didn’t take a train at any point in time. Maybe the train tracks were on the wrong side of Mistral but again: It was never brought up. How does RT expect us to reconcile an entire season of bullshit that could have been completely avoided if they had taken the train without an obvious answer as to why they couldn’t take the train.

I’d bring up the money issue, but do you know how expensive it would have been for Jaune to get those modifications for his shield? In a word: Hella. Blacksmithing is a) really difficult. and b) really time consuming. So naturally you’re going to pay out the nose for someone to do all that detail work by hand. Not to mention figuring out how to engineer that(really shitty) bonus sword onto his shield. ALL of that costs a lot of money.

And if they had all that funding at their disposal they could have easily bought four train tickets.

OR BETTER YET TAKE A FUCKING AIRSHIP.

THAT WOULD HAVE TAKEN THEM STRAIGHT FROM VALE TO MISTRAL.

And you can bet there are refugee ships both of the air and sea variety that are going in and out of Vale now that it’s been destroyed. Why not pay for passage on one of those?

Either give me a reason RT, or don’t expect me to put up with shoddy writing.

President Trump’s tax plan will really help taxpayer Trump

  • President Donald Trump on Wednesday unveiled a proposal for what Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called the “the biggest tax cut and the largest tax reform in the history of our country” — a plan that could save the president tens of millions of dollars.
  • The plan — which would cut the business tax rate to 15% — would apply both to companies that pay the 35% corporate tax and “pass-through” companies that are currently taxed at up to 39.6% (such as the Trump Organization).
  • Trump is likely taxed at the top rate of 39.6% on his earnings. This means Trump would directly benefit from his own plan, with his tax rate potentially being slashed by more than half. Read more
  • The plan would also repeal the estate tax, which the Trump administration ominously dubbed the “death tax.”
  • The estate tax only affects the very wealthy. It taxes the estate of a deceased person, but only if the estate is worth more than $5.49 million
  • The "Alternative Minimum Tax“ is going too. The AMT was created back in 1969 in order to ensure that rich people, like Trump, could not deduct their way out of paying taxes. 
  • At the time, those who earned more than $200,000 were able to avoid paying any federal income taxes, thanks to deductions.
  •  The AMT impacts roughly 5 million tax filers in the U.S., according to the Brookings Institution — one of those filers being Trump himself.  Read more (4/26/17 4 PM)
