2 IEDs Explode At Florida Mall

It's about immediately identifying the race of the guy.

If he WERE arab-looking, they certainly would be with-holding judgement on what the could be.

I work for a large utility company and just received this corporate email. The tax cuts are saving the people money in so many ways.

I removed the company name, states of operation, and utility type just to be safe. I want to protect myself since I am sharing a company email.


As you know, Congress recently passed legislation that President Trump signed into law that made comprehensive changes to the tax code, including cuts to individual and corporate tax rates.

The corporate tax rate was reduced from 35% to 21%.

(Company Name) has been engaged in the federal tax reform debate for more than two years, advocating on our customers’ behalf for changes that would lower their bills and our operating costs. We successfully lobbied for preservation of interest deductions for regulated utilities as well as safeguarding the company’s significant corporate property tax deduction ($1 billion annually), which otherwise would have increased customer bills.

It is still early days now, but the potential exists that these new tax savings may be used to help offset potential customer bill increases from (Utility Type) surcharges and commodity price increases. The savings may also help fund and preserve customer affordability programs and provide customers with more disposable income for utility bills and (Utility Type) products.

Remember, unlike most other companies, as a regulated utility we don't directly gain from the lower tax rate; the benefit is passed onto our customers across (State Names). For instance, we recently announced we would be reducing our pending (State Name) (Utility Type) and (State Name) (Utility Type) and (Utility Type) distribution rate proposals by $36M and $25M, respectively. We will have more to announce as we fully evaluate the new tax law and all of its implications.

Since the announcement of the new tax legislation, I have been getting questions about how the tax cuts might affect employee compensation. Merit pay increases and the APP program are two of the ways in which we recognize successful individual performance each fiscal year.

Given your commitment to safety, reliability, customer delivery, financial targets, and other enterprise performance metrics, we are currently on track to distribute merit pay increases and healthy APP awards for FY2018.

awesome to hear! i know locally here in Florida, a power company said the exact same thing. they are going to be able to delay the slight increase in prices (up to maybe 5 or 6 years) because of the corporate tax cuts.

the American people just keep winning.

It appears we have a “Rectal Bandit” in our midst...one of my fellow coworkers is putting “for rectal use ONLY” stickers on random objects.

Pretty much nailed it.

All they did was throw him out of their little community, not Germany entirely.

Shutdown poll: voters blame Republicans over Democrats

Trump gets it - so now we hate it!!! /sub/politics/ 7 years ago -- Obama gets it "The presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are going through the process of immigrating legally ... the legal immigration system is as broken as the borders...

I would add a HUGE part under the Obama "plan" was Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act...

H.R. 5181 would task the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to “establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,” which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and — in true dystopic manner — ‘develop and disseminate’ “fact-based narratives” to counter effrontery propaganda.
