It is not the tax on the food itself which is a sales tax which many states don't charge, but everyone who earns an "income" is supposed to pay taxes, and if you operate a business selling food you are expected to pay the income tax and follow the rules on food handling in order to protect the public. If someone gets ill or dies from food sold by a minor, his parents are liable.
But the problem is we have big tax cheaters, so the result is you have to crack down on everyone. Cheaters ruin it for everyone.
Personal tax rates as well as corporate ones were much higher until Republicans changed that, and the country as a whole did OK. The thing about exempting children is that many would claim their children "earned" the money and would go for the exemption. Cheaters ruin it for everyone.
Go listen to them when they hold meetings or town halls and ask questions. Be your own reporter

And Cheney and Bush thought the same thing about Iraq.

These people have been vetted, no? Aren't they being watched more than others in their position, and they know that.

He isn't the only one who appears to be anti-Semite. Right here on this forum and others I hear the Jewish Soros being blamed for pulling strings by many others

That is taken out of context, no? Maybe he meant it in discussion of Muslim innocents being treated like Jews during the Holocaust? Americans wiped out most Native American tribes in an orgy of genocide. What is the difference?

Yup, it is the military-industrial thing always. How abominable.

This brought back memories of my own trips to the local shoe repair so many years ago. True craftsmen, all of them, refurbishing quality products. Waste not, want not, something people don't do anymore, so much is now expendable and cheap. Now you have to pay hundreds for good shoes and only the rich can afford them.
