What do the other laws have to do with this? It's not like there have never been shooting attacks in Israel, this shows that having armed teachers can stop a shooting attack.
Those people that are armed in schools there go through a much higher standard of training than would ever happen in the US. That has to do with army service and their gun laws.

Sure, as long as the NRA is for adopting the rest of Israel's gun laws.

Any way to lower 'earned'?  (don't think IRA will help there)
If you're asking for me, the answer is no. All our income is from regular paychecks from a very large corporation and a school district.

hmm... are you in a high-deductible medical plan? Can you contribute to an HSA?
Nope.

IRA contributions by 4/15 or SEP contributions if you have Schedule C and meet the criteria
I'm doing it to avoid having to back out IRA contributions that I already made, so it has to be outside of that method. (I should have mentioned that to start).

There is a limited understanding to everyone, if you are a parent of children 5-18 now, all you are missing a child's POV, but if you are not raising a child in everyone of those age groups, or you know from years back, you are missing a lot.
So since you're not exactly 11 years old, you surely don't have the right POV on this matter.

Is there a legitimate way for me to reduce my 2017 modified AGI right now (ie for the purpose of my 2017 tax returns)?

That much I agree, but as you said there are aspects of growing up you will not understand.
Therefore I am qualified for this argument, and like I said if you disagree argue with an argument, not a person.
A parent raising a child today has a far greater understanding of what it means for a child to grow up today than a child growing up today has of a parent raising a child today.

Hope that's not too complicated for you.

100% agree and we don't even know if this boy had social media
just saying that it is a factor in todays problem

aslo at certain ages it is hard to keep kids away from the technology in todays world.
+1. I'd be surprised if this kid and his classmates were all on social media at 11. And if they were, whatever part it may have contributed to this tragedy is definitely on all of the parents - no matter how hard one might think keeping them away from it is.

Finals Friday night. You want a fax?  :)
As exciting as the prospect of our first curling gold is, it's still not nearly enough to get me to actually watch curling, no matter when it's on. ;D

what is that, and how should i use it?
HLOOKUP and VLOOKUP are the same, except one works horizontally and one works vertically.

What are you trying to do? If you want say a sum of the values from a particular column in the source table that match the identifier you select, use SUMIF. If you want to start with the identifier and return separate cells for each instance of that identifier in the source table, you need an array formula.

You should really learn to say what you mean - I have no idea what you're saying.

Ahh so you feel it can be used in one direction but not the others. gotcha.
I explicitly said that I feel it can be used in either direction, but sure, you can ascribe whatever opinion you'd like to me if it makes you feel better.
