  1. 1% is 820 million that could be used to prop up the infrastructure that mining companies use to do business. Roads, bridges, highways....etc. I just made up a number. It could even be less than 1% and still be very significant. It's 'funny' the different perspectives displayed here. I never once thought I would somehow get a 'royalty' check in the mail. It seems obvious to me, since I don't want my personal income taxes raised to eventually pay for all the things that are now overdue for repairs. The money has to come from somewhere. What do you guys think about toll roads?
  2. I think your spell check edited a couple words. I changed it back so it makes more sense now.
  3. One America News Network (OANN), also known as One America News (OAN), is a far-right,[13] pro-Donald Trump[21] cable channel founded by Robert Herring Sr. and owned by Herring Networks, Inc., launched on July 4, 2013.[26] The network is headquartered in San Diego, California, and operates news bureaus in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Its prime time political talk shows have a conservative perspective, and the channel has described itself as one of the "greatest supporters" of President Donald Trump.[27] Trump himself has promoted the network.[3][28][29] The channel is prominent
  4. So you really believe that the president's lawyer sat on this information for the last few months, only to release it 3 weeks before the election?
  5. No doubt your father was wise. Sounds just like something my Grandfather would say. The thing is, this only applies to consumers. If I don't consume 'your' product, then I shouldn't have to pay to subsidize 'your' company. Unless 'you' think socialism is a good idea. (which I'm sure you do not) If if true capitalism is the best way, then companies should sink or swim on their own merits.
  6. So much juicy material..... The Kool Aid got all drank up and now everyone's got stained lips. So ironic when people instantly dismiss valid information because it comes from a 'biased source', then turn around and regurgitate BS from a biased source.
  7. The IBD/TIPP national tracking poll, released Saturday, puts Biden at 50 percent in the head-to-head matchup, with Trump at 43 percent. The 7-point advantage is well outside the survey’s 3 percent margin of error. I suspect that the 'newly discovered' emails are not genuine. You know, fake news. Besides, even if they are 100% accurate, Hunter Biden is not running for president. Any of you guys have adult 'children'? Are you to be held responsible for everything they do in life? Should you be held back in your professional career because of alleged mistakes made by your off
  8. Good thing you got out of there with only a few stings. Last time I was out detecting with Andy, we had a swarm fly over us. I heard it and realized and started to run, but thankfully they were just 'flying over' and gone in a few seconds.
  9. It's a Canadian company by the way.... Why not an American company?
  10. Speaking of Tesla.... https://www.reuters.com/article/us-tesla-nickel/please-mine-more-nickel-musk-urges-as-tesla-boosts-production-idUSKCN24O0RV
  11. Some day you might realize he was only in it for himself. Or maybe you won't..... We can protect the environment while still extracting resources.
  12. I'd say you are pushing the limits of depth on a target that size. But then there's the '+40%' factor of the GPZ, so it's tough to say. Excellent finds regardless. It's awesome to dig a deep hole that has gold at the bottom. Congrats !!
  13. Is that a recent find? Congrats Dave !!
  14. I never said there wouldn't be a 1%. It's also mathematically impossible for there not to be. Is it none of your business? It seems like you have so much to say about everything else. I find it astonishing that 'people' repeat their programmed responses over and over again, even when there are other possible alternatives.
  15. http://nbr.com/2019/12/16/these-91-companies-paid-no-federal-taxes-in-2018/ I mean take a look at this list. How much tax revenue could be generated by imposing a minimal tax rate? Are these companies doing us such a huge favor by supplying jobs that it's up to the worker/tax payer to prop up the system so they can do us the favor? I think anyone who makes 15 million a year would do just fine with 14 million a year. Wealthy people could still be rich compared to the rest of us. We don't have to confiscate the wealth in order to make things more equitable. People coul
  16. You know Slim? I really don't disagree with you. Middle class and lower tax payers shouldn't have their taxes raised and they should be lowered. One possible way to do this would be to make companies pay their fair share for the right to do business in America. In no other country can you have the business opportunities that can be had here. But it should be pay to play and not use and exploit. There's got to be a middle ground where the 1% would make slightly less and leave more for the rest of us. And no, I'm not suggesting socialism.
  17. How about we take domestic mining companies 'off the table'. Let them get a 'free pass'. Isn't demanding royalties from foreign mining companies still a good idea? What right to they have to our minerals?
  18. I get your point, that's why I used a low ball number for the tax rate. Based on the numbers provided yesterday which amounted to a 39.5% profit margin I can adjust my example accordingly. 6.4 Billion profit taxed at 2.6% is 164 million. The tax rate doesn't have to be huge for the result to be a substantial amount of money.
  19. The first thing that comes to my mind when this subject comes up is that water is a product of combustion.
  20. https://ktar.com/story/2080673/freeport-mcmoran-boss-was-top-paid-ceo-in-arizona-in-2017/#:~:text=PHOENIX — The head of a,company Freeport-McMoRan in 2017. PHOENIX — The head of a Phoenix-based Fortune 500 company was the top-paid CEO in Arizona in 2017, according to an Associated Press analysis. Richard C. Adkerson was paid $16.2 million to run energy company Freeport-McMoRan in 2017. Freeport-McMoRan has been in the Fortune 500 for 13 years and has more than 25,000 employees globally. The company, which mines copper, gold and molybdenum, reported $16.4 billion in revenue
  21. Part of the issue is the tendency to take everything to the extreme. Nobody wants what you are suggesting, nor would it even be possible. Companies whose profits are in the millions should be paying something for the minerals. No one thinks twice about having to buy a tag to hunt deer. Even when there's no guarantee you'll get drawn or succeed in the hunt. We can be reasonable. Non-Democrat, Lincoln Project supporting, Machinist Luke
  22. Here's a list of companies that didn't pay Federal Income Taxes in 2018. http://nbr.com/2019/12/16/these-91-companies-paid-no-federal-taxes-in-2018/ Freeport McMoRan is on the list.
  23. Well I'm sorry I don't keep up on whether 'you guys' find my sources acceptable. I'd still like to see what information you believe was left out of my 'liberal' source. Please provide anything, if you can.
