The Truth About Taxes

Little Barry and his liberal democratic/media flacks love carping about tax fairness. I’m certain that by now even the most tone deaf person on the planet could repeat the oft sung “make the rich pay their fair share” song and dance. Delivered no doubt as mindlessly as it was accepted. Given the level of mind numbing repetition this lie gets, especially from so called mainstream journalists who know better, it is not surprising that so many people fall for it.
Using IRS data from 2007, I am going to spoil the hate the rich party so many Americans seem to be enjoying. If, like most liberals you have an aversion to the truth, you should probably tune out now.
Lets start with the people liberals claim to care about the most, the bottom 50 percent of taxpayers. The “little” guy. These folks earned 12 percent of personal income and paid a grand total of 3 percent of income tax revenues.
Compare that to what happens to the top 10 percent. These folks earned 48 percent of personal income and paid 71 percent of all personal income taxes.
It gets even more interesting or depressing depending on your perspective as we climb the ladder of success. Consider the top 5 percent. They earned 37 percent of personal income yet paid 61 percent of personal income tax.
But what about the top 1 percent? Why don’t they pay their fair share? The richest 1 percent of Americans earned 22 percent of national personal income but paid 40 percent of all personal income taxes. Talk about punishing success.
Now, lets engage in an exercise no longer taught in public schools, I call it critical thinking. The top 10 percent of income earners pay 71 percent of the federal income tax burden and the bottom 47 percent of Americans not only pay virtually nothing but often get refunds funded by the taxes paid by the top “1 percent.” As a child I was taught early and often to thank sincerely those who gave me gifts.
One wonders just how long liberals can continue to strangle the goose that lays golden eggs before it finally dies.
Even though the facts are indisputable, the lie continues. The “rich” are now demonized as “evil” and “not paying their fair share.” Really. Today we are witnessing the confirmation of the Nazi Parties propaganda chief Gobbels dictum. If the lie is big enough and repeated often enough, it will become the unassailable truth.

Homo Correctus Part 2

Homo Correctus Part 2

    Now that little Barry has managed to get himself ensconced (notice I didn’t say re-elected, but that is another column) back into the white house and given his newfound support of the LGBT agenda one is forced to consider what bizarre portion of that agenda will be next be forced down the throats of a sleeping American public.
    One thing most likely to be brought up at that time is the results of a study, released on Election Day, from the Williams Institute at the UCLA Law School. The study preported to follow seventy-eight children of lesbian parents over a twenty-six year period. Given the nature of the institute and its founder this so called studies results should not be surprising. Nor should they be taken seriously. Because liberals, democrats and certain media types will accept this so called study at face value, you need to know the truth.
    According to this study, these children were happier, more tolerant and did better in school than their counterparts. Counterparts who by the way, apparently suffered from “homophobia.” Surprise, surprise, a group of liberal trial lawyers found a bunch of homophobes. Like that ever happens.
    The results of this alleged study should not be taken seriously. The liberal judges, politicians, social service workers, media types and assorted busybodies that get this “research”, will doubtlessly present this study with the utmost seriousness. If we are to believe this study, all children should be raised by happily married lesbian couples. Just think, no more bad grades in school or juvenile delinquents. Yeah, right.
    Lets do the unthinkable, well if you’re a liberal its unthinkable, and apply some critical thinking to this. We should start with the Williams Institute at the UCLA Law School. They describe themselves as an organization that does “independent research on sexual orientation and gender identity law and public policy.” Really? Sexual orientation law? Does that mean it is against the law to be oriented toward sex? Or just sex with the opposite sex? In any case, this so-called research is given to the above mentioned judges, politicians and other assorted busybodies.
    The group was founded in 2001 by a successful businessman named Charles R. Williams with a 2.5 million-dollar initial endowment. He has kicked in another 13 million since. Mr. Williams is both a prominent member of the Gill Foundations OutGiving Advisory Committee and vocal homosexual advocate.
    In 2002 the Lesbian and Gay Bar Association gave him their Co-Presidents award. OUT magazine named him one of their out 100. In 2003 the L. A. Gay and Lesbian Center gave him its Board of Directors award. There is clearly no objectivity here.
    Now, lets go back to the study itself. I have two areas of concern. One is the sample, and the second, is the measurement standards.
The sample was of lesbian couples that managed to stay together for 28 years. As bad as the heterosexual divorce rate is, somewhere around 50%, the gay and lesbian divorce rate is far worse. That means this sample is in no way representative. Clearly this was a carefully targeted group selected to support a preconceived conclusion.
Secondly, while academic standards are important it seems obvious that good grades are not the prime indicator of happiness. As for the children of lesbians being “happier” than children in traditional marriage’s I cannot help but wonder just how that conclusion was justified. Personally, I don’t think it can be.
In any case, the militant homosexual advocates will not give up. Little Barry still needs their support to help pressure vulnerable democrats in towing the party line so he will likely find some agenda item to push. Maybe it will be giving LGBT individuals preference in government procurement contracts or LGBT “couples” preference over heterosexual couples in adoption proceedings.
What ever it is, it is coming because the LGBT lobby does not vote for democrats for free. The party now owes them and the party will pay. Keep your eyes open.

Obama Begins Push for New National Retirement System

Ordinarily I write my own columns but after reading this I decided to simply share it. It is a recent story released by the National Seniors Council. If you are one of the millions of responsible Americans who have saved for retirement this should scare the daylights out of you. If you are one of little Barry’s voters who think taking other peoples money is okay, then this will make you very happy.

A recent hearing sponsored by the Treasury and Labor Departments marked the beginning of the Obama Administration’s effort to nationalize the nation’s pension system and to eliminate private retirement accounts including IRA’s and 401k plans, NSC is warning.

The hearing, held in the Labor Department’s main auditorium, was monitored by NSC staff and featured a line up of left-wing activists including one representative of the AFL-CIO who advocated for more government regulation over private retirement accounts and even the establishment of government-sponsored annuities that would take the place of 401k plans.

“This hearing was set up to explore why Americans are not saving as much for their retirement as they could,” explains National Seniors Council National Director Robert Crone, “However, it is clear that this is the first step towards a government takeover. It feels just like the beginning of the debate over health care and we all know how that ended up.”

A representative of the liberal Pension Rights Center, Rebecca Davis, testified that the government needs to get involved because 401k plans and IRAs are unfair to poor people. She demanded the Obama administration set up a “government-sponsored program administered by the PBGC (the governments’ Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation).” She proclaimed that even “private annuities are problematic.”

Such “reforms” would effectively end private retirement accounts in America, Crone warns. “These people want the government to require that ultimately all Americans buy these government annuities instead of saving or investing on their own. The Government could then take these trillions of dollars and redistribute it through this new national retirement system.”

Deputy Treasury Secretary J. Mark Iwry, who presided over the hearing, is a long-time critic of 401k plans because he believes they benefit the rich. He also appears to be one of the Administration’s point man on this issue.

“This whole issue is moving forward very quickly,” warns Crone. “Already there is a bill requiring all businesses to automatically enroll their employees in IRA plans in which part of every employee’s paycheck would be automatically deducted and deposited into this account. If this passes, the government will be just one step away from being able to confiscate all these retirement accounts.”

NSC has taken the lead in warning the nation about this new government onslaught and is plotting ways to stop it.

“This effort ultimately is designed to grab the retirement nest eggs of America’s senior citizens. This new government annuity scheme, even if it is at first optional, will turn into a giant effort to redistribute the wealth of America’s older citizens,” explains Crone. “This scheme mirrors what I expect the President will try to do with Social Security. He wants to turn that program into a welfare program, too.”

NSC will likely unveil a new grassroots campaign effort later this year or early in January to coincide with the seating of the new Congress.

R. I. P. U. S. A.

R.I.P. U.S.A.

Some sixty years ago my grand father fought in the pacific during world war two. Not long afterwards, he was sent to Germany where he participated in the Berlin airlift and met my grandmother.
Some forty years ago my dad was sent to Vietnam where he did his best as a combat engineer to help a free people stay that way.
Some thirty years ago I spent four years of my life shadowing Russian submarines across the Pacific Ocean. Launching an attack would have been the last action of any sub we were following.
My grandfathers’ generation was able to overcome adversities we today simply cannot imagine. The great depression, an apparently invincible German/Japanese military machine and a Roosevelt administration riddled with Russian agents.
My dad came home to a country that treated him as little more than a mass murder and was hell bent on drugging up and dropping out. That didn’t stop him from continuing to serve his country until the day he died.
I came home to a level of indifference and ignorance of America, her history and ideals that shocked me. Those conditions reached their natural fruition tonight with the re-election of little Barry. It was a blinding confirmation that the America my grandfather fought for, my father fought for and I served for, had died quietly in her sleep.
The liberal democrats and ideologues will be insufferable in their gloating. And perhaps they should be. One of the main tactics of the left has always been to make the truth relative. The truth has never been more relative than it is today. I suspect it will not be long before little Barry appoints a “Truth Czar.” I also suspect that not long after that I will be in deep trouble for “lying” about a great number of things which despite being demonstrably true, will be called lies by those offended by the truth.
Now unrestrained by anything little Barry can proceed full steam ahead with his radical agenda to “fundamentally transform” America.
Hard working, independent, self-sufficient Americans will continue to be penalized for having the audacity to make more money than their neighbors. For the “crime of being rich” they will pay more in taxes. They will be labeled corrupt, mean spirited and evil.
These Americans will be demonized for teaching their children actual American history rather than the touchy-feely, politically correct drivel that now passes for education these days. Any parent who dares to point out that the liberal icon Chairman Mao was not an agrarian reformer but a mass murdering butcher who had people executed simply because they wore glasses (a sign of western contamination) will be labeled a racist.
These Americans, who see the hand of God in all of nature’s beauty or in the smile of an infant will be labeled mentally ill simply for believing in a Supreme Being.
None of these things would make any sense to my grandfather. I suspect my dad would not understand much better. That is because for the most part they were not political creatures. They spent their lives working to improve their lives, not waiting for a hand out or an Obama phone.
Sadly, I understand all to well what has been transpiring over the last thirty years. You see, when the liberals realized they could no longer win in the arena of ideas they realized their only hope was to change the jury. To do so they went into the universities and have been working their way down the educational system until today, in places like New York, it is acceptable to indoctrinate kindergartners about the homosexual lifestyle.
There is little difference between your average liberal democrat or liberal democrat supporter and the stereotypical spoiled rich kid. They suffer from the same mindset and worldview. Sadly, they are now firmly in control of a once great nation. I am glad neither my grandfather nor dad lived long enough to endure the tragedies that little Barry and his followers are about to unleash on this country.

Breaking the Law Again

Breaking the Law…Again

Recently the media reported on the ease with which foreign contributors could make contributions to little Barrys re-election campaign. Those same reports showed how the Romney campaign had instituted safeguards to prevent the Romney campaign from accepting foreign money.
The New York Post for example, reported on British citizen Chris Walkers two successful donations to little Barrys campaign. Mr. Walkers attempts to donate to Romney were rejected by the Romney campaign.
For the record, it is a violation of federal law to accept foreign campaign contributions.
Even so nearly seventy percent of the traffic to BaracObama.com comes from foreign users. All of these foreign users are redirected to fundraising websites operated by little Barrys re-election campaign. Not only is his campaign accepting illegal money, they are actively soliciting it.
It is now clear that in a desperate attempt to retain ‘his’ presidency little Barry and his re-election campaign are repeating their 2008 pattern. That is, collecting substantial amounts money through illegal contributions from foreign sources.
Not surprisingly, little Barrys Justice department remains, as it did in 2008, on the sidelines. Eric “See no evil, hear no evil” Holder refuses to hold his boss accountable. Apparently gun running isn’t the only criminal enterprise Mr. Holder cannot find an interest in prosecuting.
To prove that the Obama campaign continues collecting illegal contributions the news web site World Net Daily ran an experiment. Keep in mind this experiment was run weeks after the initial media reports about BaracObama.com accepting illegal money.
Using an openly identified Pakistani server WND was able to make a $15 contribution to BaracObama.com. The “donation” was identified as coming from Osama Bin Laden, 911 Jihad Way, Abbottabad, Ca 91101. Mr. Bin Laden listed his occupation as “deceased terror chief.”
Not only was the donation accepted but since making the donation, the Bin Laden email address has received nine fundraising emails. Including one from Michelle Obama who called Bin Laden “one of the campaigns most committed supporters.” I realize it was a robo email but I can’t help but wonder just how much unintended truth there was in the statement.
To test whether the initial donation might have simply “slipped through the cracks” a second donation was made the following day. It too was quickly accepted.
Little Barrys campaign could quickly and easily correct their continued violation of federal election law. There are simple steps they could take to screen donations that require no human intervention at all. All the other candidates campaigns did so. As of today, little Barrys campaign has still refused to do so.
It is interesting that little Barrys campaign refuses to release the identification of donors who give less than $200. I suspect that is because they know that many, if not most of those donors, are non-citizens. That would explain why not only is there no effort being made on the part of little Barrys campaign to screen out foreign donations but that no effort will be made.
The willingness to ignore federal law by little Barry and his campaign handlers speaks volumes to any willing to simply observe the truth. It is proof positive of one of his core beliefs, that being, he is so special the law doesn’t apply to him.
