  Tue. 1/24/12 6:09pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If I buy company stock at a discount, and then sell it later, what do I base my capital gains?

For example, the price is $100 and I get a 10% discount. I pay $90 for a share. Later on, the price rises to $120 a share and I sell. Do I claim $20 or $30 of capital gains? Thank you.

Shout out to Howie!
  Tue. 1/24/12 6:16pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the answer. I'll look into the wages.

For the record, the answer is typically, report $30 in this example, unless the $10 of discount is reported by the employer as wages. (Did I word that right?)

Yes Roosevelt was behind the New Deal/Industrial Policy. But... the only reason he did it was because of pressure from the far left, socialists and communists. We don't have anything close to that today. The far left is non-existent in this country.

Thanks for hosting this Chris.

Do you mean Saul Alinsky -- (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing, and has been compared to Thomas Paine as being "one of the great American leaders of the nonsocialist left."[4] He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals.

In the course of nearly four decades of political organizing, Alinsky received much criticism, but also gained praise from many public figures. His organizing skills were focused on improving the living conditions of poor communities across North America. In the 1950s, he began turning his attention to improving conditions of the African American ghettos, beginning with Chicago's and later traveling to other ghettos in California, Michigan, New York City, and a dozen other "trouble spots".

His ideas were later adapted by some U.S. college students and other young organizers in the late 1960s and formed part of their strategies for organizing on campus and beyond.[5] Time magazine once wrote that "American democracy is being altered by Alinsky's ideas," and conservative author William F. Buckley said he was "very close to being an organizational genius."[4] ???????

I think Hilary cited him as an influence and he's been labeled as an inner city socialist.
  Tue. 1/24/12 6:36pm jonny f -- Chicago:

that's from Wikipedia...
  Tue. 1/24/12 6:37pm Steve from SF:

Saul Alinsky.

Saul sounds Jewish.
Alinsky sounds vaguely Russian (i.e. communist).
Another dog whistle by Newt.
  Tue. 1/24/12 6:38pm Steve from SF:

Nice quote: "A People’s Organization is dedicated to an eternal war. It is a war against poverty, misery, delinquency, disease, injustice, hopelessness, despair, and unhappiness. They are basically the same issues for which nations have gone to war in almost every generation"
  Tue. 1/24/12 6:40pm Mike East:

Good conversation today...making me more interested in the State of the Union tonight.
