When Donald Trump was President, he donated his annual salary to the Nat'l Park Service. Not a lot of money to the NPS total budget, but nice gesture showing he was aware of their problems.


Indeed a nice gesture. And he added some more of his own from his personal wealth to round it off to $100,00 since it's just $78,000.

I'm not one to tell anyone what to do with their own money, but I would have preferred his administration did not cut $2 billion out of the national parks budget while giving big business $1 trillon in tax cuts that promised economic boom that did not happen.

And a bit of irony, it's when the NPS is asking for funds just to address these maintenance backlogs.


3 card monte......wish people would learn.

$750.00, that's seven hundred and fifty dollars, in federal taxes for a YEAR.


Yes and presidential salary is $400,000 not $78,000. Plus $50,000 for expenses.


And while it may not be nearly enough, look at what the other party has actually given from their own pockets, from Obama, to SlowJoe to Harris, NONE give as much as Trump did. You may not like him, but from a personal standpoint, he has done/donated more than any others for the last 30 years.



Wow......


"The Bidens paid about $3.7 million and $1.5 in taxes for 2017 and 2018, respectively — about a third of their adjusted gross income. They gave roughly $1 million and $275,000 to charity in 2017 and 2018, respectively."



Compared w $750.00??????

SMH

Compared to the $400,000 salary donation alone, your retyping a prior typo, at least get your lies straight.

Just a reminder, the Federal Govt doesn’t pay for anything. It takes money from others to give to whatever it pleases and borrows the rest at our expense.

Why did you delete the post about me the OP implying I didn't know anything about the subject of government budget?

Lost your manhood suddenly?

Yeah, I only researched to tie up my observations about the deteriorating conditons of our national parks that I just camped recently and digged into the national parks budget..

And indeed, politics aside, it's budgets get cut under Obama, understandably with the Great Recession. Then further cut under Trump, seems on their sense of priority since they gave $1 Trillion tax cuts to big business,

And oh yea, I must not know about budgets since it's what I did for a living with several global-multinational companies.

I don't know about modern math. But in our elementary arithmetic, $3.7 million paid by Biden is bigger than the $750 paid by Trump -- or still higher if he donated $400,000 and change of his salary.

And we don't care about donations, just pay the nooestt taxes for his self-proclaimed billions, and we are all good.

I'm off this forum but these kinds of mindless last two posts before me that sets my hackles and raise the dead.[emoticon]

Why are you blaming fla_gypsy for that? They aren't a moderator and don't have the ability to delete posts.


It's a shame politics are destroying this thread. I wish this country would get back to the realistic viewpoint that 4 years in the white house won't destroy us. If the "other side" wins the election, just effing deal with it for 4 years and vote against them next election. And once they are out, let it go - they're out. Why must be go on for years and years and years...

Maybe you should back off for a while. You seem to getting a bit hot under the collar Yosemite Sam.

I did not see the deleted comments. I have sent you a PM rather than derail this thread further. Please know my comments were not meant maliciously.
