Bolt on toiled

The threading on the bolt for the toilet is stripped and the top of the bolt has bee cut off? Who built this place anyway? Any suggestions?

From your post it appears you are asking who built your place.

Provide your full address, parcel number and any other lot descriptions and maybe someone can search you county auditor's website.

I did! You don't like my craftsmanship?!?

I was going to do it right but really had to use the toilet (double chili burrito).

Just wait until you look in the walls I put up before the toilet was in place. I was feeling quite a bit hung over and had to blow some chunks...

If your talking about the closit bolts that hold the toilet to the floor, there always cut or snapped off so the trim cap will fit. They make the bolts long to make up for differant floor thickness.
Just cut it off with a hack saw, remove the toilet and replace the wax ring and bolts.

The bolt was cut off so that the plastic caps would fit, and it's probably stripped from where someone tried to get the nut to pass over th jagged threads. Assuming you are trying to remove the toilet, carefully cut the nut off, don't try to save the bolt, and you can pick up a set of new flange bolts and nuts in the plumbing department of your local hardware store or big box. Once you get the toilet off, you will see that the bolt head simply fits in a slot in the flange.
