Free SUVs For Small Business Owners - Pros and Cons of New SUV Tax Break

Back in 1996, in an effort to change tax laws "to encourage business investment," Congress made it possible for business owners to claim $17,500 in accelerated depreciation on equipment (such as trucks). That amount increased in '01, '02, and '03 from $20,000 to $24,000 to $25,000, respectively. Now, Bush's plan calls for up to $75,000 "accelerated depreciation" for business owners.

I did try.

Always the result is the same.

Suppression and repression.

And the lies continue.

Personally, I see your post as being propaganda masquerading as a tribute to the troops, which it clearly is not.

I really liked the Dire Straits music, but could hardly understand a word, but I'm guessing that it's pretty much anti-war.

So, it seems that you are the propagandist, given the clear connection to oil, who is lying in wait for those who might see your post for what it is.

The whole war has been propaganda Grady.

If you're gonna die for something you should at be clear about what you are dieing for.



Lyrics to brothers in Arms

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms


Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms


There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones


Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

My good man

I have been to war and in that war I came very close to being killed many times and received life threatening wounds during that war.

At that time, there was massive opposition to the war and it was mostly lies from the Marxist left.

But, regardless, I would change nothing of my experience, either overseas or upon my return to my own country to be castigated and treated as a pariah by my own countrymen.

I like your post for what it is, even if I know that your message is a bundle of canards that you have learned from those whose agenda is much more insidious than your purported agenda to educate.


Those are nice lyrics, but they do not reflect the sentiments of this combat veteran. I have nothing against idealism, but one cannot ignore experience.

well let's leave it at that for this particular thread then. The thread was started as a tribute not a discussion.

Thanks Grady.
