Ethan Ralph / TheRalphRetort - Host of the aborted #Killstream, mixes liquor and xanax, imported an 18 year old meth head to live with him

The money he already has is separate and his so long as he doesn't co-mingle it. Basically just start a new checking account for them to share once they're married. I don't think having an LLC is really gonna protect future earnings from being split up with a divorce though if it can be showed that he is keeping the money there for that specific reason, which wouldn't be too difficult since he wouldn't really be using that money for business operations. Sure she won't be able to take LLC assets, but running the killstream and various other "independent media" ventures is pretty asset-light. I could be wrong here, but that's my layman's take. It isn't like there's much income to protect or go after, so maybe he thinks it wouldn't be worth pursuing. Of course, that sort of also makes it not worth protecting.

The LLC might offer an extra layer of protection for him from libel and whatnot if he published all his media through it. Sort of tough to sort through all that since he has owned it all as a sole-proprietor heretofore. Also, I imagine he could be held personally liable if the LLC didn't follow some kind of standards with vetting. Again, it would probably at least make it more expensive and burdensome to go after him.

The IRS also treats LLCs as pass-through entities for tax purposes. There's no change there really.

Food can be written off at 1/2 in many circumstances, but entertainment (drinks alone) cannot. He'd have a very very hard time justifying writing off food eaten at home as a business expense though. The LLC would probably make it a tad easier to write off expenses related to his "studio" and the trips he goes on just by nature of keeping things better organized, but he could do that before anyway since he was operating a sole-proprietorship. He'd be a moron if he wasn't already writing off his office space and pro-rated expenses related to it or alternatively $5/sqft up to 300 sqft simplified deduction.

I've posted about this earlier, but he really doesn't make enough for that to affect anything but his self-employment (presumably 7.65% of net income from the business) and maybe state taxes because he makes less than the standard deduction of $12,400.

You have to file your historical expenses and payroll info for those government loans. He wouldn't have any, so... He might get the $1-10k most companies got for just filling out the application though.

The IRS recognizes all net income for a solely owned LLC as pass-through income. Anything like cloths would have to be used exclusively for the show. Food is only at 1/2 and only if it's actually business related. Trips can be for the show, they already could have been. Of course, the trip must be "mostly business" and an "ordinary and necessary expense" for the industry.

America allowing for deductions for small self owned businesses is a good thing. Don't like it? Maybe your own small business.

Finally, recall that this simply goes against the money you would have to pay taxes on. The IRS doesn't give you money for losses, and since Ralph makes nothing, this doesn't really substantially decrease his taxes (less than 10% at the very high end of what he writes off).

As someone who was self-employed, he would already be able to write off medical & dental insurance premiums for himself, his spouse, and any dependents. As it stands right now, Faith makes and has nothing. She would surely be eligible for Medicaid. Both Ralph and Faith are low-income enough to receive either Medicaid or a fat Obamacare subsidy that would mean they paid less than $100/mo each for actually quite good insurance.

I addressed the income from the LLC earlier, but it's pass-through. I don't think he would be able to "hide" income in the LLC to maintain welfare unless he was buying a lot of assets for what should be a very asset-light business, and he makes so little he would probably qualify for a lot of welfare programs anyway.
Glad small business owners can get some breaks. I've just seen a lot of people milk the system and pretend to be destitute by hiding things just to stay under a limit for assistance. It's frustrating to me.
Dame has been going hard on Ralph since the ED article and Ade article drop, and now Ralph has a fairly tame response:

So he did expand his vocabulary
Ade has the easiest response in the fucking world to say to her boss. Just show him the WSJ article and say he's a far right lunatic (truth) that tried to blackmail (truth) her and now just straight up attacking her (truth) lol


That's what he means, he got THAT right but can't type one of his favorite words
Problem is these days they are going to ask why she was associated with someone like that. People are punished all the time socially, and sometimes lose their jobs these days based on what family or partners do. She would have to say she either didn't know or hope her boss is open to those views or actual free speech or something. She would have to hope her boss is not more concerned about social credit than someone getting messed with by an ex.

Well that was fast, @adezero you should have dumped everything he clearly has been working on this since yesterday and probably prior to it:

I can see one of these articles being in Faith's future!

Absolutely nothing he wrote paints him in a good light. Not a single word, especially the note at the end totally not encouraging people to call her work. This attitude he has of "my enemies go low, I'll go lower" is one of the more retarded things about him. You are hurting yourself more than her. Everyone already knows she's crazy.

He bashes her, talks about how crazy she is and how she just chases e-frame... and then posts a screenshot of him telling her he wants to fuck her. Jesus Christ, Ralph. How do you not see that that makes you look like a pathetic, horny teenager. No wonder you hooked up with Faith. Peas in a pod man, peas in a pod.

Ethan Ralph caught reading kiwifarms again. He fixed the typos!
I hate to be an English teacher but that's just an awkward way to phrase things, it's like saying "during the middle of the end of Gamergate" but more awkward. A better way to phrase it would be "towards the end of gamergate" though knowing Ralph he probably never graduated high school

He could have just dropped the "middle of the" and it would have been just fine. Does it really matter if it was during the beginning, middle, or end of the death throes? No, no one cares.

That and his over-abundance of the use of parentheses.
In several paragraphs, he uses them multiple times in each.
Again, 6th grader book report.

Well that was fast, @adezero you should have dumped everything he clearly has been working on this since yesterday and probably prior to it:
I first met Adrienne Blair of Farmington Hills, Michigan about 5 years ago, during the middle of the death throes of GaemrGate. At that time, she was dating a guy named Brian Zaiger. Back then, he was the owner of Encyclopedia Dramatica (ED). The site is dead nowadays and no one really gives a fuck about it, but back then, it really did have some influence. I used to also write on this site daily and have ten’s of thousands of views. Ade, as I usually called her, was also a writer. So, we talked about that sort of thing from time to time.

As for her actual skill, she has no flair or charisma on the page, but she can write a competent article. That’s why I eventually let her write here. But, wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get back to the timeline…

As I mentioned, Adrienne Blair was dating Zaiger at the time. Before all was said and done, she would break up with him over 5 times. He used to slap her around often and he was also a heroin addict. However, this is a woman who hates herself and usually has about 18 pills worth of Adderall coursing through her veins at any given time. She’s told countless lies about me and others. Now, I’m not so sure about her story. Perhaps she was not telling the full tale and has actually lied about some of the violence allegedly committed against her by Zaiger. Of course, since I didn’t know her true character at the time and she had been a friend, I didn’t even question it.

I didn’t know anything at the time besides what she told me.

Fast forward a bit to 2018 or so and she’s broken up with Zaiger, this time for good (allegedly). I guess he tried to strangle her or something at her apartment. I was appalled by this behavior at the time, and while I still completely disavow it, I can certainly understand the mindset a little bit more (if it even happened). Ms. Blair, in retaliation for this, released pretty much every bit of dirt she had on Zaiger…phone calls, pics, etc. He did indeed look like a mental case. Back then, I thought he deserved it and that this was some kind of special event that justified that kind of release. Now that I know Adrienne Blair, I can tell you that’s just the way she goes through life.

During this period, Zaiger also had Encyclopedia Dramatica stolen out from under him. By most accounts, he deserved this, so I won’t go into all the autistic detail. But I do wonder if that was the final blow that caused her not to take him back. I mean, he had openly cheated on her, slapped her around, stolen money from her, and (according to her) leaked compromising photographs. Still, she took him back every single time. The only thing that was different this time was that he no longer owned ED. You see, Ade is like a whore moth attracted to the e-fame flame. I didn’t realize it then, but some lessons you just have to learn on your own.

Fast forward to early 2020. I’d been friends with Ade for half a decade by now, albeit not close. I was just about to announce my divorce, however she didn’t know this little detail. She was in the Williamsburg area, about an hour away from my home in Richmond, VA. She asked me if I wanted to meet up with her and her 22-year-old boyfriend (she’s 40), and I said sure. The drive wasn’t too bad and the food at the Amber Ox was delicious. But her and her paramour put off a very strange vibe. She would later tell me that it was all the meth and Adderall in her system, but back then I had no idea. Also, her boyfriend Jacob (who she eventually helped take over ED lol) looked like a complete sperg, in a full-length school shooter coat. The only thing missing was a goddamn fedora. He also acted very strange, even more strange than the methed-out Adrienne Blair. Later, while she was describing her own battles with schizophrenia, she would tell me that Jacob imagined himself a living god and would go into deep psychotic states at her house. He thought he had magical powers, basically. I think you’re getting the idea…shit was weird.

Still, it was a free lunch.

A few weeks later, I announced my divorce to the public during the weekend of AFPAC. A few weeks after that, she sent me a message on Twitter and told me she had broken up with Jacob and that he had stolen half her clients on the way out. There was some back and forth for a short period of time, until one day, I sent her a message on Twitter dot com…

Adrienne Blair's self-esteem's self-esteemThis line actually worked on Adrienne Blair. Within one week, she had driven herself across the country to put my dick in her mouth.
I never expected “I just want to fuck you” to land me in the end-zone, but you have to keep something in mind, gentlemen. Most of these whores have no self-esteem. If Ade had any, she wouldn’t have let Zaiger slap her around all those years. She wouldn’t have taken him back every single time, eating shit in public with each degradation. At least I get paid somewhat handsomely for my life being a spectacle. She, to borrow the famous phrase, does it for free. Well, maybe that’s not entirely accurate. She does get something out of the deal…online attention from her more popular boyfriends. That’s what she truly gets off on, because, well, she’s a 40-year-old e-whore.

You see, Adrienne Blair is like a whore moth attracted to the e-fame flame.
I guess when you work at a home reclamation joint all day, you don’t get too much excitement. So, what do you do? Well, you latch onto people more famous than you. But, when your voice sounds like nails on a chalkboard and you’re just bland in general, you don’t have too many options. So, Adrienne Blair drove across the country, during the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic, just to let me stick my dick down her throat. Sadly, she wasn’t even very good at that. You would think that with all the mileage on this old broad that she could at least give a decent blowjob, but, I guess not.

A few things struck me from our time together. One, Ade is methed out literally all the time. I never saw any illegal drugs, but she would often boast of having actual meth at her house. When she was with me, it was just her Adderall prescription 24/7. I don’t know if this was the cause of her mental instability or if she’s just naturally unbalanced, but she would often have debilitating panic attacks that I would have to talk her down from, like you would a child. Again, this is a 40-year-old woman we’re talking about. She may be older than I am by half a decade, but she still comports herself like a strung out teenager.

Another was her clinginess. Believe it or not, I work most of the day. Messages, emails, show prep, show ideas, social media…this shit is basically non-stop. She thought I should pay more attention to her than my job. Speaking of my job, she would get upset that I didn’t mention her on-air enough. I thought maybe it was just insecurity at the time, and maybe that was a part of it. But what I really think it was all about is her massive lust for true e-fame. She would seethe constantly about having to work an actual job. In fact, when we first got together, she wasn’t working at all. When she got the offer to go back to Aaron Builders shortly after we started dating, she had a massive panic attack because she knew she had to take it and go back to work. On the day she actually had to return, she sat on the phone with me in her car and cried for a solid hour before I coaxed her into the building.

40. Years. Old.

The last thing that sticks out, for the purposes of this article, was how she absolutely didn’t want to let me leave. I broke up with her on the day before I went to California. Since she was acting so insecure about me not mentioning her enough for the 100th time (not kidding), I said let’s just downgrade this thing to a “friend’s with benefits” type situation. She agreed and I thought we were all good. It wasn’t until I got back from California that she said that we were still together. Why? Because I had never called her back to “finalize.” You see, towards the end of the call, I said I would ring her again to talk about it some more later. But, I had to catch a flight the next morning and the time slipped away. We had clearly already agreed to the status change, though, so I fucked someone else in California. This crazy bitch considers my actions cheating and that’s why she’s now made up a bunch of lies about me online.

No sane person would agree with her assertion with these facts on the table, facts she has curiously omitted from her drugged-out appearances on live stream.

Finally, I got away from Adrienne Blair. She threatened me and attacked me, but I talked her down into friendship once again. Well, or so I thought. Whores like this will never go back to being cool with you. She was simply taking her time and examining where to stick the knife. This is a lesson that I had to learn the hard way, but I won’t be relearning it. Hopefully, a couple of you will read this and recognize some of the patterns in your own relationships. I guarantee you there is some head-nodding going on.

As for Adrienne’s future, I’m sure she will continue whoring herself around the internet until she dies of a massive meth-induced heart attack. But, until then, be weary, gentlemen! This 40-year-old headcase who acts like a 16-year-old junkie is out there on the loose. Let me be the cautionary tale for all you! Don’t be the next victim on this e-whore’s list.

Oh, and I certainly don’t encourage any of you to call Aaron Builders in Farmington Hills, Michigan and let them know Adrienne Blair published my Social Security number online today (I found that out while I was editing). I don’t think it’s a good look to employ someone like that, but it’s their call!
I can see one of these articles being in Faith's future!

Looking at his introduction paragraph for his "article", it is absolute shit. He literally gives no basic hook to at least slowly let the reader ease into who he will be covering. This paragraph would be fine had he put a basic intro for the readers. While no sane person who knows nothing about Ethan will read this, you still have to act like the reader knows jack about who you are talking about. Immediately just running into the subject matter makes this sound like some Discord/email message.

people can write whatever they want off and/or under-report income when reporting to the IRS. That doesn't make it legal. I want to say there's an estimated compliance of a hair over 80%

Ralph writes exactly the way he talks, which is great because it makes that article perfect. Especially the smug parts where he's bragging about how, "Ah tends of thousands uh hits on ED, even though no one gives a shit about them anymore. Then that whore sucked muh dick. Did I mention I make money by humiliating myself like a whore? What a bitch, heed my warning and get this lady fired!"

He's such a wonderfully monumental piece of shit.
