"Amazon also announced it's allowing its corporate employees to work from home now through next June, among the latest companies to push back the re opening of offices, OK, future's looked like They're positive at the moment. They've been up and down all morning. Right now. The S and P futures are up. Six. NASDAQ futures are up 15 and the Dow futures are up 33 from Bloomberg. I'm Jeff Belen Jura News Radio. 700 WLW writes about the 29 of Scotland is in at nine. We'll find out what he's got coming up here a little bit mean Wall. But the whole idea of Puerto Rico. If you make decent money, you probably would not want to become a state because you pay income. Let's say you make six figures. $100,000. Livin in Puerto Rico and make a million dollars half a million. Whatever You don't pretty well, if you're not paying federal income tax on that. And that's the plus. They get for being a territory. Citizen, your territory, But you're not a state so you don't pay that. I mention you do pay Fi Cup, but you don't pay federal income tax, which is probably the biggest bite out of most paychecks. So you don't become a state all of a sudden you're going, It's gonna cost you a lot of money. So if the reverse were true, if you had an opportunity to give up your right to vote in exchange for not paying income tax, would you take that? And then There's a thought process. I mean, what would be the long term ramifications of that You have to figure the people who pay the most income tax will be the first ones to say I'm out. I won't vote. Fine. Just let me keep my money. Fine. Fine. Fine. So the wealthy even though and not all of them, but A good percentage of wealthy people would up not to pay. Well as we know they're the ones who keep the whole system afloat anyway. They pay the vast majority of the taxes. Even though you'll hear from those on the left side of the aisle that they don't pay their fair share. They never say what that is. The reality is like the top 10% pay something like 80 75 80% of the income taxes. So they opt out Well, number one, the governments in big trouble. But what would happen is those who don't pay much tax at all or don't pay any tax. They wouldn't bother. So all of a sudden you have people who are in the position. People who might be the least responsible with Tax dollars will have to become more responsible if the people who only paid a little bit and income tax number one probably end up having to pay some more. You couldn't continue. So foisted on the rich, which is what we do all the time. Almost any tax like that comes along to tell you we're gonna put this on the rich Joe Biden, who's not going to raise taxes on anyone making under $400,000 is going to go get the rich. I'll get the super rich. It's always the rich. Well, if they're not paying income taxes, you can't do that anymore. So whatever services you want the government to provide you be ready to pay for yourself. And wouldn't that be a lovely idea? You could say yes, I want that part. But you know what you got to pay for it. What the poll was. I read this morning the percentage of people In favor of some freebie. And everybody was in favor of it because they know they're going to at least attempt to make someone other than them pay for it. When I think about it, I think I might keep my my right to vote. The problem is too few people who are continue to pay taxes. Because they think this through It wouldn't be bad because the people who are paying the taxes And voting have to vote to pay the taxes. Themselves. And then there's a bit more cautious with What sort of perks they built themselves. And then secondarily, who's going to dig our way out? The $27 trillion, which is about to go to 30 Trillion when this next stimulus comes through. It's staggering. So would you give up your vote? In exchange for not paying income taxes is the question 513749 7000 imagine this goes back to the end of last week. I realized that fentanyl had been completely knocked off the front page of the paper or really anywhere in the news since covert hit And for several years there in a row. It was fentanyl fentanyl.

"For you. Each time for the Bloomberg market on 700 WLW. Well, here's Jeff Bellenger all staked out at Bloomberg, and he's got the home builders sentiment report which came out early.

It was 72 last month. And right now, this new reading matches the record that was set in December of 1919 98 of the chief economist at the National Association of Homebuilders, As Housing has clearly been a bright spot during the pandemic and the sharp rebound in builder confidence over the summer led the N A. H B to upgrade its forecast for single family starts. Well, there you go, and ah, all this in the wake of no stimulus package. And no prospects for what, at least of this point. No, The economy is just essentially a limping along, waiting for a comprehensive stimulus plan. But chances for a deal out of Washington seemed to be fading. With each of passing day. Many businesses and consumers are coming up short this month. For the next two weeks, Democrats and Republicans are going to be focused on their conventions. One ray of hope is that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said House members will be back in Washington later this week will be voting on a measure to keep the Postal Service from cutting service and we'll see whether or not some discussions also involved the stimulus package and we're getting a raise.

Yeah, those were the days Yeah, well, you don't get my coffee. I'm just telling you right now. Okay? Ah. Amy Schumer, whose husband is apparently an award winning chef. She's got a new batch of episodes learns Amy Schumer learns to cook. Yeah, that start tonight. And the other part of this trend of yourself shot shows, which are pretty much proliferated, proliferating everywhere, not just unscripted shows, but you even see a few scripted series where people are shooting inside their own homes, acting out roles. But in her case, she's playing herself and she's very funny at that on this show. A few episodes aired in May, and it was good enough to In the show and Emmy Emmy nomination for what I'd call it Unstructured reality program back with new episodes tonight. And so The idea is that Amy is being shown to the kitchen. She has no kitchen skills on her husband, who has all kitchen skills is helping her figure out how to do Ah, fairly basic things like pigs in a blanket and pot stickers. But of course, she's swilling home. A lot of the time peanut coladas her drink of choice tonight. It's a fun show it on the food network. And several episodes begin airing as of tonight, And like I said, It's part of a trend, though you're going to even see more of that this week. There's a show coming on this weekend. A two part drama called Love in the Time of Corona and its bearing on the Freeform Network, which used to be called the ABC Family Network. And it's about a series of relationships and stories over these two knights and you'll see how the lock down affected their relationships or I think one has AH woman who's visiting her husband in the nursing home said trying to be Very relevant here. But again, everything was shot inside the actor's homes They bring in equipment, and I've seen quite a bit of this. In recent weeks. The horror there there's a horror streaming service called Shutter, and they did a film that was all about, say on that was being conducted on Zoom and how it basically ruined everybody's lives. Andi was very cleverly done. It was almost like the Blair Witch Project kind of thing where everything was being shown on the computer screen, so it's sort of a new wave of telling stories there. To keep doing this forever. Of course, At some point, people are going to go back into production to do regular prime time shows. But for now, you know, TV. It's It's what they call the new abnormal. Yeah, well, a lot of people like the unscripted formats. I mean, we've seen it with reality shows, but also you go somewhere where you don't normally get a chance to go. For example, in Amy Schumer's kitchen or love in the time of Corona, I guess you're going in the air going in the house the night of the the Hamilton cast member Leslie Odom Jr. You're going to see things you don't normally See, I think a lot of people like that stuff. Yeah, and in the way of telling good stories and actually once coming up next month on HBO, a film called Coastal Elites, which is a satire about how basically who rolls are all going crazy Not just because you're in and locked down because of the political polarization of the time in the series of.
