    “But here’s what worries some tax policy experts: the President may have the authority to postpone the collection of the payroll tax under the Internal Revenue Code, but not the power to forgive those taxes. That authority has been given only to Congress. The Executive Order acknowledges as much, stating: The Secretary of the Treasury shall explore avenues, including legislation, to eliminate the obligation to pay the taxes deferred pursuant to the implementation of this memorandum.”

    My understanding is that it isn’t a cut, it’s a deferral.

    That is, at some point, you’ll have to pay it back.

    Unless you vote for trump; if he were to win, he’d make it permanent.

    See, it’s a kind of quid pro quo: “You vote me back in, I’ll see you don’t have to pay that money back.”

    People have been afraid to contradict him since he’s the “Resident.”

    At noon on Jan 20th, he becomes the nobody he always was.

    And plenty of people will be happy to escort him out, like it or not.

    There is only one person who could pick a fight with Canada.

    So he did.

    Interesting that you mention working with someone you don’t like; as with a lot that Jesus said, it comes from Hebrew Scripture:

    “If you see the donkey of one who hates you fallen under its load, do not leave it there; you must help him with it.”

    In other words, he can’t sit there and watch you work, you both have to work together, and may realize you shouldn’t be “enemies”.

    Short answer, whatever the Bible says about “other gods”, at this time, and for millennia, Judaism is 100% and wholly monotheistic, and doesn’t believe in any other supernatural power but God.

    As I said, if Satan were opposed to God, he would be a god himself. Free will is strictly a human option.

    Judaism also doesn’t believe in a carnate God, which is why, after Paul and Christianity split with the Jews, they never accepted a human god as part of a Trinity. Prior to that, there were many who were so hungry for a messiah that they accepted him as that, but never divine. And the church had no use for Jews, after that. Look up Constantine’s Sword by James Carroll, a former priest.
