~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

New York braces for another storm. In fact, the people in New York are desperately going to have to find shelter elsewhere.

Why?

According to the New York Post, the tax rate on it’s wealthiest citizens to pay for the new Obamacare plan that came out of the House yesterday will reach a criminal 58.68 percent of their income.

Not only is this the highest tax rate seen by New Yorkers in over 3 decades, but this does not include all of the state and local taxation that occurs as well.

Yeah – soak it to the rich, greedy people.

Um.

These are the people who start companies, pursue new ideas, offer you employment and pay you the salaries that will allow you to buy those flashy new rims or that huge big screen.

Not to mention your mortgage.

I understand the reticence of people to say “Whoa – that’s too much to tag on to any one group of people”, right? After all, for those of us making under 100k a year, we don’t have that onerous a tax burden do we?

This is not only taking us back to Pre Reagan tax levels on the wealthy, establishing more tax levels depending on how much you make, instituting more wealth envy and punishing successful people, but it is another promise broken by Barack Obama. Another campaign lie.

Lie.

When you say “No family will pay a higher tax rate than they did in the 90’s” and they are going to under a bill you have indicated you will sign…. that’s a lie.

It doesn’t matter to him that his numbers are slipping, that the majority of 160 million people (75-80%) are HAPPY with their current insurance and that a large majority of the people who are uninsured are people who don’t want or haven’t bothered to get insurance.

Nope.

What matters is the collapse of this economy.

I have written several pieces recently about Communist/Socialist goals in this country. You may or may not have believed them. You may think I’m being Chicken Little. That’s all fine and dandy, but when you see this confiscation of EARNED wealth in this country – you had better realize that when you start being more equal with the people they are stealing from, they will come after you next.

They’ll have to.

They haven’t finished scoring this plan yet – and the costs are anywhere from 1 trillion to 3.5 trillion at last count over the next 10 years.

The Congress is proposing 500+ billion dollars in tax increases to the wealthy over the next 10 years to pay for it.

Where is the rest coming from? Hmmm?

If you are stealing, with all tax levels, 70-80% of the wealthiest people’s money, they don’t have any other place to go but down, people.

All the people aren’t being elevated to where they can buy big screens folks.

All of the people are being dragged down to the poorest levels to make the poor feel better about their lot in life.

Does that really make everyone’s life better? Or would money be better spent on bringing business back to this country, job training and such to enable the poorest to advance themselves to the level of buying that big screen?

What would truly make the poorest happy? I would think the latter – it would enable them, give them pride, allow them to look in the mirror and provide for their families better.

The leadership of the “people” however, believe that the poor are spitefilled people who want to see people that are successful ruined. They believe the poor would wish ill on others.

I don’t believe that is true. There are some bitter folks who go “heck yeah – soak ’em” but maybe you ought to look and see who they are as people before you follow them down that dark, jealousy filled road. Are they really the poor and disenfranchised? Are they people who don’t do anything to improve their lot and blame others? How does someone making money in NYC keep someone in Florida “down in the streets” for example?

There are job programs, shelters, homes, guidance, programs out the ying yang to help folks who are less fortunate. There are people reaching out to poor and homeless, starving and destitute people. All over the place. There are education centers and rides to get them there free of charge.

I can’t believe that this country, the most generous in the world, houses tens of millions of hate filled people who can’t see beyond the nose on their own faces.

Maybe its just their mouthpieces.

Maybe they need to realize that there is more time and money wasted on keeping a few big mouths in power instead of helping their needs.

Maybe – just maybe – they’ll wake up.

Let Barack know that this isn’t right and that people should be allowed to keep what they earn. The charities in this country, the really efficient people who get the most money to the street level to help people are hurting more when the wealthy are punished and 24 cents on the dollar coming out of Washington, D.C. isn’t helping the poor – it’s helping the bureaucrats pay themselves and live it up.

Meanwhile Robert Gibbs sits up there with his smarmy smirk and tells us “it is a situation we are watching”, telling us in his arrogance that the American people are too stupid or beneath the insiders and don’t deserve a straight answer.

Maybe those insiders are the “wealthy” that need to be punished. Hmmmm?

Dirty Little Monetary Secrets

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You hear a lot about money, dollars, people “paying off” politicians to get their votes, etc.

Lobbyists, PACs, groups and individuals donate money to governmental candidates – and according to Democrats (Socialists) the Republicans are the party of “big money”,”the rich”, “pharmaceuticals” etc.

Democrats also like to say that they are not the party of lawyers, unions, teachers or health care. No – they don’t take money from these people, and, after all, the Evil Conservatives make all the money from all the evil corporate special interests, right? (note the sarcasm, please)

This isn’t saying that the leading party in the house and senate don’t get more money because of having more people, but there are some interesting comparisons as well when you look at the money per candidate issues.

We have discovered a KILLER site to help look this information up, which is public record, even though most people don’t have the knowledge to look it up. Well, now you do. But, let’s take a look at some of the latest dollars (2009-2010 election cycle)  flowing into Washington by groups and the ratios – I think the dollar amounts might surprise you:

Unions:
Democrats $8,383,031
Republicans $719,200
Independants $-500
(remember how some union sycophant told me they don’t spend money TO candidates? this is public record folks – and keep in mind this doesn’t count the money the unions spend on commercials or voter drives)

Building Trade unions:
Dems $3,513,050
Reps $397,500
Ind $6,000

Industrial unions:
Dems $1,882,366
Reps $48,300
Ind $-10,000

Even teachers unions get into this:

Dems $128,800
Reps $12,000

Okay – final time – party of unions – Democrats/Socialists – no more lying about it, no more camoflage – there it is. Period.

But, I bet you think the health care industry is fighting the Dems by funding the Reps – right?

Dems $5,372,538
Reps $2,744,627
Ind $22,350

Um, no.

In fact, if it wasn’t a Republican PAC specifically, the Dems received more money in almost every category I looked up.

I know – how about those “billions” spent by the evil pharmaceuticals? The ones the republicans get TONS of money from?

Dems: $925,022
Reps: $601,800
Ind: $1,000

Hmmm. Nope. Not that one either!

How about lawyers? Why can’t we get reform of the legal system to lower medical costs by capping the amount of “pain and suffering” that can be awarded in a lawsuit? Why can’t we effect a “loser pays” system, which would reduce the amount of frivilous lawsuits by millions if not billions? You know, free up the docket for cases that are necessary? Make sure that if you sue and lose, you pay the other person’s legal fees?

Let’s see:
Dems $8,404,685
Reps $1,831,443
Ind $19,400

Hmmm. I wonder why we can’t get help in this arena.

I wonder if any of the people (read health care) would like their money back since most of the people who got paid voted the wrong way.

I got it – how about special interest/ single issue –

Dems $5,250,760
Reps $1,389,029
Ind $-5,000

OK – that’s not it. Oh – wait- the billions spent by the NRA and gun industry, right?

Dems $13,150
Reps $45,150
Ind $0

Oops – you caught me. But, you do realize that’s 58,300.00 total? A FRACTION of what most industries paid the Dems, right?

Hmmm… got it – the millions upon millions heaped upon the Repubs by the anti abortionists?

Dems $0
Reps $3,800
Ind $0

How about pro choice?

Dems $21,785
Reps $5,000
Ind $0

Wait – I got it – how about Pro Isreal?

Dems $70,422
Reps $40,300
Ind $0

Want some really interesting information?:

How did the TV/Movies/Music industry vote with their money in the last election cycle and how are they trending now?

Year   Rank    Total              Individuals     PACS                           Dems            Reps            Dem/Rep %

2010* 17 $2,036,211 $1,132,711 $903,500 N/A $1,427,304 $605,507 70% 30%
2008* 10 $48,093,020 $40,323,392 $7,769,628 N/A $37,519,496 $10,490,931 78% 22%

Noooooooo – I bet there isn’t a bias. Nononono.

Even things like agribusiness are almost equal, with a small split towards the majority, which would be expected.

I think this can be shown to debunk a lot of the lies coming from the left.

I will be also telling you folks in a later post how this breaks down among the top 20 people receiving donations.

I’d like to thank the Center for Responsive Politics for this information!

They have an entire database of information you won’t believe!

1 Trillion Dollars…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The deficit has officially crossed $1 trillion today, for the first time ever. This is no longer a theoretical value that may have to be paid at some point. This is the actual amount that has been spent so far this fiscal year, and it’s projected to go up even higher; $1.84 trillion at year end by the government’s estimate (and they never, ever estimate low…). This has caused a great deal of concern with our lenders, and is likely to cause a large amount of pain in the near future.  There are many causes: “necessary” spending so save the economy and wage wars, drastically decreased tax revenue, and a devalued dollar among others. If there was ever a time to reign our government in, now is that time. This is not a Democrat, Republican, Conservative, or Liberal thing. This is the future of our Republic, and if our employees don’t see that, it is time to teach them.

Continued Attacks Against Freedom

Taxpayer slave

We are faced with new and dire crises almost daily.  Each and every one is carefully crafted to trick the American people into blindly handing over our Constitutional rights to the very thugs who manufactured them.  If you look at the bills and issues before Congress, it is frightening to contemplate how close we’ve come to the end of America as we know it.

  • Cap and Trade
  • Healthcare Reform
  • Fairness Doctrine
  • Cyber Security Act of 2009
  • Confirmation of Sotomayor as a Supreme Court Justice

Each of these is a direct and very real threat to our Freedom and our rights as spelled out in the Constitution.

Cap and Trade is designed to collapse the economy deliberately under the false pretenses of Global Warming.  So far there is a petition circulating objecting to this onerous bill with the signatures of more than 31,000 scientists, 9000 of who are PhD’s.  The proponents of this bill ignore the arguments that claim there is nothing that supports that Global Warming is more than the regular, normal periods of warming and cooling that have always occurred. Through the excessive tax burden that will be imposed, they will control every aspect of our daily lives.

Healthcare Reform is another way to control both the medical industry as well as the people.  Their plan is modeled after one that includes rationed care and denial of services for people who are deemed it isn’t worth the investment.  You can be certain that Congress and the Unions will be exempted from this plan. Don’t worry, if you like your plan…fugeddaboudit.

The Fairness Doctrine is a direct attack of your right to free speech.  If they are successful in resurrecting this unconstitutional law, it will become a crime to disagree with the government.  It is a way to be able to regulate the Internet.  If they can’t limit what you hear of the dissenting point of view, they can manipulate you into believing, falsely, that there is nothing to worry about.

The CyberSecurity Act of 2009 is another excuse to lock down your freedom of speech even more.

“Obama’s announcement of the new cybersecurity grid dovetails with a recently introduced Senate bill, the Cybersecurity Act of 2009, that would hand the president the power to shut down the entire Internet in the event of a “cybersecurity” crisis.”  (prisonplanet.com)

The 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States gives every citizen the right to free speech.  It goes farther than just that; it prohibits Congress from abridging that right.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

1st Amendment, U.S. Constitution

With the stroke of a pen, the President will sign away our rights as lawful citizens of the United States of America.  If We The People don’t wake up and stand up for these rights, they will be gone forever.  If We The People don’t act now, it will take more than peaceable demonstrations to undo the aggressions against the citizens of our great nation.  It’s easy to say that someone ought to do something about this.  Know this, that someone is you.  If you aren’t willing to stand up against the threat of Socialism, Fascism, Marxism or Communism, who’s going to do it for you.  There are many just like you who want to say “Oh NO You Don’t” to the “Yes We Can” crowd.  Don’t wait, do it now.

One Possible Future

Add to Technorati Favorites

Explore with me one possible future:

“Now for tonight’s headlines.”  The newscaster took a deep breath and sighed uncharacteristically before he continued.  “With the support of all unions, the president has declared the Constitution invalid.  Here’s the Rose Garden press conference…”

“In the interest of global unity, I have declared the Constitution of the United States null and void.  It is no longer practical to allow the citizens to believe they have any influence on the future course of this nation.  We have a greater good we must deal with,” the president paused for dramatic effect, “and I will share what this actually is as you need to know.  Trust me.  In the mean time, I will be the absolute final authority on the American economy and the American people.  All voting will be suspended until further notice.

Now that there is healthcare for all, we need to control the costs.  Everyone is going to have to be realistic in their expectations for their healthcare outcome.  So, there will be mandatory genetic screening, if you have a genetic pre-disposition towards cancer, heart disease or obesity, we will ask you to report immediately for counseling and treatment.  This way we can assure that no one who deserves excellent healthcare will be denied.  Funerals will, of course, be covered by the Single-Payer option.

As for our carbon output, it is time for all Americans to tighten their belts once again.  To discourage the irresponsible use of electricity, we will add an additional 50% surcharge to your bill to help you remember what you’re doing to the earth.  I know there are Internet rumors that claim that Global Warming isn’t based in fact, but we’re going to err on the side of caution and make sure that we win this fight.  Also, all southern states, I know it’s summer, but you can’t go expecting a/c every day, all day.  You’ll just have to go green or get hot.  And since we’re already taxing all American’s in every way we can think of, you probably can’t afford it.”

You are probably thinking, the extreme picture I’ve painted for you above just isn’t possible.  However, it is just one of the many possible futures for America from the cross roads we are standing in.  Before you discount it completely, just think about the fact that the House of Representatives just passed CAP and TRADE even though there are studies by MIT and other well respected scientists that say all we are seeing is the normal global cycles of warming and cooling.  Since it is widely accepted that there were at least four major ice ages, it is only logical that there were periods of global warming in between.

Instead, consider what is the motivation for those who are behind the strong push for policy change.  Money and power are at the root of everything we’re seeing.  When the dust settles, we’ll see who made the best deals and won at the expense of the American people.  The winners may be political powers from other nations, union executives and the Washington toads that have sold us out for personal or political gain.  Worse than what I’ve already described, now consider this. Is it that great a stretch of the imagination to believe that there are those in power who would gladly sell America’s future out and have us take on not only a global currency, as they have already alluded to, but come under the authority of a One World Government?

We have an obligation to the Founding Fathers of this nation, to our children and to each other to not sit idly by and watch as our Constitutional rights are systematically dismantled.  Unless We The People stand up and object loudly to what is transpiring in Washington, we will loose the right to disagree, to speak out against, to keep and bear arms and to keep the fruit of our own labors.

Israelis Insulted By Obama Picture – Tension Anyone?

Kickin back or boot to the head?

Kickin back or boot to the head?

You know things are getting a bit touchy when a picture of a President kicking back in his chair can cause some issues.

I don’t necessarily agree that Obama is being insulting here – I personally think some staffer just decided to be clever and take this picture to show how “at ease” Obama was with the Isreali Prime Minister.

I don’t really have a problem with someone putting their feet up on a desk in a phone call.

One thing that is pointed out in the article linked below, that I do agree with, and that the administration better be watching is the fact that Obama has Isreal stirred up.

They are stirred up with good reason considering the administration behavior lately, but this kind of highlights just how tense the situation is.

I personally hope the Isreali community communicates back to the US Jewish community and lets them know how well Obama is doing and not to vote Democrat in the next election.

Think that’ll happen?
