  • #French #Lawmakers Want to Give #Bitcoin #Investors a Tax Cut

According to a French news website, France’s lower house of parliament (Assemblée Nationale) has backed a proposed plan from its #finance commission which will effectively bring the taxes on #bitcoin gains in line with other capital gains taxes in the country. At present, bitcoin sales are taxed about 20 percent more than traditional capital gains or sales of stocks and other securities.

The bill is spearheaded by Eric Woerth, the body’s finance committee chairman. It effectively brings the tax rate for bitcoin sales from more than 36 percent to the flat 30 percent that other capital gains sales pay. It was, however, not enough for some French citizens, one of whom said that the previous and proposed taxes both inhibit innovation.

Tax Also Applies to Bitcoin Purchases
According to French outlet Le Figaro, the tax would not only apply to strict sales of bitcoin such as using LocalBitcoins or Coinbase to realize profits but would also apply to using bitcoin to buy things, e.g., when “used as a means of payment for acquisition of goods or services.” France is far from the only jurisdiction to tax bitcoin in this way, but the regressive method of taxation arguably stifles a technology that securely provides citizens of said jurisdictions a secure and powerful way to shop. More to the point, when a person uses bitcoin to purchase a product they are not getting real-world value in the same way as a regular market sale of coin — they cannot immediately turn around and re-invest if the market takes a dive, for example, as is the strategy of many bitcoin investors which generates a lot of taxes. 
The tax reduction plan must pass the general legislative session and be included in the 2019 budget to become official, but it is in line with other moves on the part of France’s government to attempt to create a more friendly regulatory environment for cryptosecurities.

  • Tonight we built the bridge between music and politics at our annual #GRAMMYsOnTheHill Awards. The night was full of surprises and memorable moments that included honoring @YolandaAdams (Creators Leadership Award) and @KChenoweth (Philanthropist Award), @SenatorChuckGrassley, and @RepJeffries. 
In a #bipartisan room, Members of Congress joined GRAMMY-nominated songwriter/producer @RealLindaPerry onstage to sing "What's up." It was a reminder that #music brings us all together and that creators deserve to be fairly compensated for creating the soundtrack to our lives. 
Tomorrow (April 10) music creators will take part in our Advocacy Day, Capitol Hill's largest and most prestigious legislative event for music creators, where they will meet with #lawmakers to continued the conversation about music legislation.

  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead

My once in a lifetime experience of pretending to be a Member of Parliament. Sitting in the hall that our lawmakers go to debate issues, create laws... and act like children, booing and calling names 🤣
.
We went through a mock session and observed all the normal protocol and it gave me a new insight into how debates are important although sometimes lengthy.
.
Thanks to @eo_malaysia for this special experience. Maybe one day I'll run for Prime Minister 🤣

  • A Kenyan lawmaker wants a law formulated to combat farting on planes arguing that if left unattended it can cause 'discomfort and insecurity on board' flights.

Dr Lilian Achieng Gogo, Member of Parliament from Rangwe, Homa Bay County, while making her contribution on the amendments to the Montreal protocol of 2014, said farting is terrible within planes and something ought to be done to deal with it.

When Challenged by temporary speaker Christopher Omulele on how she intends to stop farting aboard air crafts Dr. Gogo said for a start passengers can be provided with basic medicines meant to reduce emission of gas especially after meals. “We need special training on aircraft crew so that they provide medicines like bicarbonate of soda after to passengers after meals and drinks have been served. We should also have paramedics, who are trained in basic first aid included in the international and local flights,” Dr Gogo said.

In another news relating to this, Amsterdam was forced to land in Vienna after a man refused to stop passing wind, infuriating staff and passengers.

  • MAKERS of public policy can learn from public health and social science that diagnosis determines treatment (DDT). Misunderstanding what’s wrong in our world leads to mistreating the ills of society. Good intentions sometimes make things worse.

  • I sometimes wonder where I’d be if I hadn’t taken a chance.
My job? I am what every little girl #dreams to be ... I am a real life princess living out real life dreams. And, I get to do so because of this incredible industry. It knows no strangers. It welcomes men and #women. It has no prejudice. It accepts the poor, the wealthy, and the “in the middle”. It rolls out the red carpet to #opportunities some may never have had a chance to experience, otherwise. .
Next week, I have an opportunity to join a small group from around the Country to speak on Capitol Hill to advocate for me, and my fellow DS’rs to share what this industry did, and does, for our #families.
.
As a SeneGence Distributor, it’s an honor to be able to attend events like @DSAssn #DirectSellingDay on Capitol Hill, where we are provided the opportunity to individually express to #lawmakers the importance of the #freedom and flexibility to operate our #DirectSelling businesses independently.
.
Thank you, #SeneGence, for giving us this vehicle to chase the dreams we continue to reach for. .

  • Stats like this is one of the reasons I started the 6 figure mom account and am an ᗩᗪᐯOᑕᗩTE. (And credit to @ellevest for this picture and stat 💪🏽🗽💸) For the majority of women it is not easy to be a full time mom and a full time ᑭᖇOᖴEᔕᔕIOᑎᗩᒪ. There is real pressure, stress and anxiety that I felt trying to figure out how my family was going to make it. To this day, I try and balance my contribution at home caring for my son with the lack of financial contribution I am providing given I work 4 days a week instead of 5. It’s not apples to apples yet it’s a real contribution that I know many moms struggle with acknowledging. Diaper changes, kisses, cuddles, feedings... aren’t easily seen in bank statements or on W2’s. 🔆
And what’s worse, here in the US, in the land of opportunity the majority of companies do not make it easy for women to resume the position they had before while honoring the major life event that took place in birth and motherhood. And though we’re talking about moms up until now I really mean this for all individuals that experience major life events. This may even be where FMLA steps in. The U.S. needs to get with the program as a majorly developed country. We are taking steps finally to provide protected maternity leave so that you can’t lose your job but this is only on a state by state basis. As a country we do not have a “16 week” maternity leave or my god, 52 weeks like the U.K. I won’t even touch the topic of receiving full or partial salary during that time. My point is some countries have figured it out, so giddy up, 🇺🇸!
🔆
We need the flexibility to work our asses off in and outside of our careers. And some may say the answer is being your own boss though that option is not for everyone. So we need lawmakers and change makers alike to find a way. 🔆
Caretakers who can return back to work are better for the economy. And not to mention better for their families, which in turn results in better citizens for the future economies. 🔆🔆 #ladiesgetpaid #postpartumhealth #postpartumanxiety #useconomy #maternityleave #paternityleave #fmla #finance #lawmakers #changemakers #flexibility #hardworking #pregnancy #thefutureisnow #thefutureisourkids

  • March for our lives, no longer protesting in streets, unveils #GunControl plan
#linkinbio
Brakkton Booker,  @NPR
With their hopes fading that #lawmakers in Washington will pass new #GunSafety measures, young activists from March for Our Lives have their own plans on how to stem gun violence. The proposal,📄 called A Peace Plan for a Safer America, comes a little more than two weeks after a pair of mass #shootings claimed the lives of 31 people and injured dozens more in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. In the days after those shootings, President Trump signaled there was “a very strong appetite for background checks” on people seeking to purchase firearms. But there are reports the president has either lost interest in the matter or changed his mind. Organizers with March for Our Lives say there needs to be a greater urgency by elected officials to protect American lives.🇺🇸 They see the gun issue as both a crisis and a cause for the federal #government to declare a national emergency. The plan is aimed at candidates seeking federal office, including President Trump and his 2020 Democratic presidential challengers.

  • 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐦𝐩 &  𝐆𝐮𝐧𝐬: Lawmakers are heading back to Washington this week after a recess. The most critical topic that they will have to address is gun control and legislation. After mass shootings were covered over various news cycles, politicians have pressured and faced pressure over increased gun legislation. President Trump was forced to take a stance and this is where voters became confused. Trump’s positions on guns is very important. Being a Republican President, he has a duty to protect the 2nd amendment but as the 2020 elections nears, the pressure increases. Once bills are introduced to Congress, lawmakers will have to make decisions of whether they’ll vote for them or strike them down. The next few weeks will be very important for America’s gun control debate. #trump #guns #guncontrol #redflaglaw #congress #lawmakers #republican #democrat #conservative #liberal #abortion #politics #news #unbiased #easypolitics

  • Senator Nancy Binay has a point. Why are these lawmakers more consumed to this Sogie Bill? I know we are living in an era where the third gender exists but some individuals are still discriminating against other people who have different skin colors than them. "NEGRA" as they often call it. These non-faired skin ladies opted to use bleaching products to have fairer skin because of the pressure they felt from their community. The point that I am trying to emphasize is that we have over-reacted to the issue of this transgender man who was not allowed to use the female comfort room. If they see that there is a positive impact of passing this bill, so be it. Nonetheless, reject it and focus on thinking of another useful bill that would help our countrymen, especially farmers to raise their standard of living. May our lawmakers who had not even, perhaps, step their foot on the muddy rice field, have a heart for the betterment of our farmers and fishermen. 
And, I thank you😜 ***A thought while sipping my black tea with ginger as I am having a sore throat from the fully loaded successive days of lessons.

Lawmaking 2.0: Why Parliamentary Internship Matters. .
.
Why should young people get involved in making laws? 
How would they become highly-skilled parliamentarians? 
What is the best route to mastering the art, science, nuts and bolts of being effective at the legislature? 
What are the tools, tactics and techniques for making indelible legislative impact at lawmaking - a practice which requires excellent intellectual and argumentative rigour? .
. 
In this #TEDxCalabar talk, Rt. Hon. Onofiok Luke, pioneer Speaker of the 109-member Nigeria Youth parliament; two-term (8 years) member of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Nigeria; Speaker of that Assembly; and currently Member Representing Etinan Federal Constituency in Nigeria's Federal House of Representatives, provides the answers. .
. 
What would you expect from someone who served as a legislative aide to a lawmaker, someone who is in passionate pursuit to raise a new breed of excellent and effective future lawmakers? .
.
And what would you expect from Founder of The Onofiok Luke Legislative Internship Programme (TOLLIP) - Nigeria’s only stipendiary internship programme designed to train youths on legislative basics, entrepreneurship, community development, volunteerism and conflict resolution? .
.
TOLLIP has been adopted and enlarged by Akwa Ibom State legislature into what is now known as the Akwa Ibom Legislative Internship Programme (AKILIP). .

  • Posted @withrepost • @pharmacologyuniversityok Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, one of the founders of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, recently told a Portland television station that the stars were aligning on Capitol Hill with respect to legal weed. The lawmaker is as confident as ever that we still have a fighting chance of seeing it come to pass in 2019. The following are two of the most pressing matters that might give Congress absolutely no choice but to surrender to marijuana legalization in the interest of public health and safety. The only way to curb (or stop) this sort of thing from happening is to end marijuana prohibition at the federal level and allow weed to be taxed and regulated like tobacco and alcohol. It is conflicting state and federal law that has allowed the black market to swell into the monster that it has become. So, if fake cannabis vapes end up spawning a vicious health epidemic that puts more Americans at risk of life threatening health issues, that might be enough to inspire the federal government to make a change.

  • A North Carolina court just threw out #Republicans' gerrymandered state legislature map
.
Just last night, a #NorthCarolina court unanimously struck down the state's #Republican-drawn legislative districts, calling the #gerrymandered map #unconstitutional.
.
State #lawmakers will now have two weeks to draw new districts, putting us in a fighting chance of flipping both chambers this #election.
.
This is our chance to fight back, rally hard, and win in critical states like North Carolina.

  • Yesterday was a full day @rovesfarm with the mewp's fairy god sister & brother. We love this place as the perfect meet up point between our two houses & it's become a regular haunt over the years. I noticed a real step change in how they interacted this time, she's not the baby anymore, she's a full on play partner able to meet them on her own terms. This girl is going to be a force to be reckoned with & I'm so happy to see her developing such confidence.
❤🧡💛💚💙
On the drive on the way over we ended up having an incredibly in depth conversation about parliament, mp's & law making. I always take the tack of answering questions very honestly but simply to start with & let her set the parameters. As the conversion unfolded though, she had so many questions, & was clearly taking on board everything i was telling her, that it ended up going further than i ever would have imagined she could have understood. ❤🧡💛💚💙
She wanted to know what laws were so we had a conversation around our family 'rules' & how laws were rules that everyone in the country agreed were a good idea. This led into a discussion about who makes the rules, & how they are elected, so we got onto voting. She understood this concept because they vote on which book to read at forest school & the most votes wins. ❤🧡💛💚💙
It was a fascinating conversation but it especially tickled me when, at the end, she declared she wanted to make laws when she was older. I said that was a great plan & told her she'd need to have lots of ideas about the kinds of laws she'd like to make &, if people liked those ideas, they'd vote for her. She then paused,  looked thoughtful, & said "but i also want to be a litter picker because that's the most important job for the environment." ❤🧡💛💚💙
I'm pretty passionate about politics so I'm not surprised she's shown an interest. It's so important to teach our kids they have a voice. I have to say i was surprised how much she understood, it was more like talking to a friend than a child
❤🧡💛💚💙
