Well the tax bill just passed the senate. Part of the selling point was that if we give this huge handout to corporations, they will trickle it on down on er I mean TO the rest of us. Apple is one of those corporations right? So how much will our streaming royalties be going up? So when will Apple be giving us our piece of the (excuse the pun) pie?

Oh, does anyone know who this Jack Squat fellow is? or how I can contact him? When I ask about the royalties question, people mention his name a lot. I guess he must be some kind of expert on the subject.

oh, another thing. I just thought up the words Repukelicans and Repukelickers. They might be kind of hard to rhyme, but they have a certain ring to them. Feel free to use them in any lyrics you want, I know I plan to.

The Republicans and Trump are absolutely not People Friendly. The Corporations only pay about 12% taxes with all their stinking loopholes and lawyers and accountants. Now they will pay nothing and still go over seas for cheap labor. It's a freaking joke.....I hate them. All Trump wants is a win as he thinks he is still in a Reality Show and is in a sporting event with wins and losses. He only cares about himself and is an A Hole.
BTW I voted for him and gave him a year and NOW I'm done with him...

Hard to argue with any of that, Barry, but someone will.

Aw, Humm, Well,
I saw where Jody posted streaming royalties were getting a Cost of Living raise. Well shucks me too. Last year I got all of 2 dollars! Somewhere somebody said you better start Booking your own life. I started over 50 years ago. now I am filthy rich in spite of all those rich people leaving the country! Well maybe some of them will come back, in the meantime you better start booking your own life. Well back to the Salt Mines!

Wow. Interesting way to conflate a bunch of issues that have absolutely nothing to do with each other. While it is a lot of fun to poke at corporations and the "big evil" world, for anyone that has investments, 401 K's, retirement plans, stocks, bonds, or directly or indirectly benefit when taxes are cut. My mother, who passed away last year, was able to to live comfortably till the end of her life. And they are helping my bottom line as well, since that portfolio is through the roof thanks to activity. So yep, helps those of us in the middle class too. Nice try, but fail.
So corporations don't really bother me much.

On the "streaming raises", the thing that most people leave out when it comes to music streaming is that someone has to WANT TO STREAM (listen to your music.) And for the vast, vast, vast majority of songwriters and artists, that is NEVER going to amount to a lot of money. You have to have HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of streams to have significant income.
So arguing or obsessing over a few per cents of per cents of per cents, is seemingly an exercise in futility to me.
But it sure seems to give a lot of people a lot to talk about.

YEP The pull yourself by the bootstrap crowd will. We live in a Society of 330 million people and we need to pull together. The people who will not agree with me have theirs and that's all they want. The don't think of themselves in a Community so that is it......I don't care a whit about those people but remember this. You may be healthy today and sick tomorrow.....You may have a great job today with benefits and you may not tomorrow.....Your belly may be full today and not tomorrow and YOU may be down and out some day and you will hope that there is a People Friendly Gov that will help you.....I rest my case. I like a mix of Capitalism and Socialism....SS and Medicare and Medicaid and The VA are wonderful programs....WE THE PEOPLE...

The only stream that I will ever see is the one around the corner...lol The economy is booming and that was before any tax cuts went in.....The Large Corp are rolling in cash. I would have rather seen a Universal Health Care Law so Business wouldn't have to supply health care to their workers AND a bunch of money for people who are out of work in their fifties who want good re training in jobs that are available. That would have been a win win for all. They don't need a tax cut as the loopholes that are still there by the way with the Lawyers and Accountants allow them to only pay about 12% before the tax cut...The carried interest loophole is still there and on and on it goes. Many workers work 3 part time jobs a day and many work as independent contractors with no benefits. Congress gets good benefits and we the people are dumb as rocks for just rolling over and taking all this crap. BTW the bugaboo Unions brought Health Care Insurance to the American People. BTW I don't think any Republicans voted for SS or Medicare at first...we are dumb as a brick....
