Each still presented for “The Conversation” (#1974) also tells a #architectural and #corporate story. The first, Hackman walking #anxiously into One Embarcadero Center, captures the dramatic walkway that unites the 45-story @johnportmanassoc tower (#1970) with the three other four towers—the @hyattregencysf and three other giant ‘scrapers that would open later in the decade.(1,2) This is the cover and an #explanatory page form ITEL Corp.’s Sept. 1972 manual. In the #halycon late #1970s, Itel #leased @IBM-compatible monitors and keyboards and occupied 17 floors of One Embarcadero. When IBM lowered prices to #adjust for personal computers in #1979, ITEL suffered one of the most #devastating bankruptcies in corporate history (now @anixterinc). (3) Another #crucial client was Security Pacific Bank, the 10th largest in the U.S. in the mid-1970s. Here’s their #1975 $100,000 Lifestyle Sweepstakes (now @bankofamerica. (4) In October #1971, a basement bomb destroyed the Iranian Consulate, then a #mansion in Presidio Heights. The #explosion was timed with a #party the Shah hosted in Tehran for the 2,500th anniversary of #Persia. By January, the new Consulate had opened up on the 13th floor of One. @cbs5 captured the #saga. Here’s a model of the OG consulate, with a painting of the Shah behind (5) The #mobscene at the explosion. (6) The #cocktailparty for the opening. (7) The Consul General, happy to have survived. (8) Protestors at the #soiree chanting “Throw Flowers Not Bombs!” and pinning red roses on @joinSFPD officers. (9) @sfchronicle coverage of the #bombing. (10) Hackman is framed by the #monolithic “Two Columns with Wedge” (#1971), crafted by #Swiss#sculptor Willi Gutmann and seen here as a model weeks before #installation in an April @sfchronicle.
Why do I like to tell #blackpeople the #truth ? Firstly because no one does.. we have become largely #monolithic we have been convinced to believe we all have to think and act the same way.. When I say things like this on threads like this... what usually happens is the conversation goes from black people pointing fingers at others and actually looking at themselves whether or not they even realize they’re doing it... all of a sudden black people hold themselves #accountable which is rare for black people to actually do! Especially in America.. yes they get #angry and defensive but they don’t realize they are working their way out of #victimhood when confronted with the truth 🤷🏾♀️ I drop truths and walk away knowing the direction and course of the #conversation has changed.. and #iamnotsorry :D #happytuesday
“Democrats 🐀 want to keep you poor”
Democrat are proposing 1 trillion dollars in higher taxes over the next ten years including a nearly $600 billion income tax increase, a Business tax increase and a capital gains tax increase.
These proposed tax increases would wipe out benefits of tax reform, which INCLUDE larger paychecks, salary bonuses, pay raises, increased employment retirement contributions and utility rate cuts.
The Senate Democrat plan calls for raising the income tax rate to 39.6 percent and increasing the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) to pre TCJA levels, meaning millions of Americans would have to AGAIN pay this tax.
According to 2015 IRS data, over 900,000 taxpayers in New York paid the AMT prior to passage of the TCJA, which dramatically increased the threshold at which this tax applied.
Democrats 🐀 also propose an $83 million increase to the Death Tax. This tax increase would disproportionately fall on family - owned businesses and suppress jobs and wages. 76% of Americans support full, permanent repeal of the death tax.
In addition, the proposal calls for increasing corporate tax to 25%. Including state corporate tax rates, this would cause the U.S. rate to rise to 29%, above the worldwide average rate of 23% and the industrial average of 24%.
Finally, Democrats propose a tax increase in carried interest capital gains.
A carried interest capital gains increase would reduce investment and savings. Also, DAMAGING economic growth at a time when the economy is beginning to grow 3%+ higher.

This magnificent relief, carved in the mid-seventh century, measures approximately 30m (100ft) long by 15m (45ft) high. Its huge size and scale is difficult to imagine just from photographs; a person standing on the ground in front of it could barely touch the elephants' feet.
The subject is either Arjuna's Penance or the Descent of the Ganges, or possibly both.
