Well, it really depends on your tax bracket! If you believe this set up, good for you. But if like me you do not believe in this, good for you and me!
Face it, this graph, like so many, just does not take into account simple facts like: I and you did not add to the debt and where are the companies in all this? You know, the ones that get humongous tax breaks and subsidies?
For instance: the top 1% of taxpayers pay 36.70% of taxes!
Heck, the entire top 10% of taxpayers pay 70.50% of taxes!
Think about that for a bit.
And the liberals want to raise the taxes to an even higher plateau for the top 1%?
Now how about all those companies? Where are they on this graph? Or is there a separate graph somewhere else I have yet to find or have sent to me (like the above graph, gosh knows where it comes from)?
I mean, why can’t we spread the debt around to the companies? How much would GE, IBM, Apple, etc. owe?
Hell, how about for the next 2 or more years, whatever length of time it takes, we tax all companies 100% of earnings? Hell with the money people, the hedge funds, the banks and the financial institutions that move money and figures around. Means also no dividends.
Going just one bit further? Limit all management of all companies to say a quaint amount of only twice what the average worker in the company makes. Same with the unions, all those union officers can only make say 1.5 times what their union members make.
Well, I could go on and on, but bottom line is this people: our income tax system is broke and needs not to be fixed or overhauled, it really needs to be scrapped completely and start anew.
Oh, that tomato soup was just damn good! Firt really decent tasting liquid I have had in days! Oh, not counting the beef broth I had yesterday.
Now to figure out what to have for my dinner…..
State Dept Projects No Decision on New Keystone Application ‘Til 2013
After the convoluted, highly politicized, piecemeal rejection TransCanada received on their Keystone XL pipeline proposal the first time around, the Obama administration assured the company that they were invited to reapply with an alternate route, one that would pose fewer ostensible environmental concerns, whenever they wished. But, given that this was always about punting a decision on a delicate poster-child issue that would anger the green lobby until after November’s election, TransCanada could’ve taken their sweet time with their new proposal (but, you know, private-sector companies working for a profit actually like to get things done in a timely, efficient manner, so…):

Busted: Iran’s Jarring Photoshopped Missile Test Image
Remember back in 2008, when Iran Photoshopped an extra missile into a photograph of its missile test? Turns out, bad habits die hard. The Atlantic Wire has caught Iran’s semi-official Mehrs News Agency (MNA) using another digitally-altered image to depict its missile program. Only this time, the image is even more egregiously Photoshopped.
On the homepage of its website today, the image appears next to a story downplaying the threat of Iran’s ballistic missile program. It’s a small image but upon closer inspection, you can see that something is amiss.
(note, look at the picture carefully!)

It’s official…the obama regime knows for sure Biden is just plain stupid!
On Sunday evenings, President Obama meets with his top ten campaign officials to “gather for a confidential briefing on his re-election,” according to the New York Times. Present at these meetings, which, we learn, usually take place after the president’s Sunday golf outings, are a slew of White House and campaign officials. [...]
But there is one person conspicuously missing: Vice President Joe Biden. (Hillary Clinton and the rest of the cabinet are also absent.) “Instead, the room is filled with a group of trusted confidants who were at his side during the last campaign,” writes the Times, suggesting that Biden is not indeed a ‘trusted confidant.
More feelie-goodie words from our obama regime!
(CNS News) – Hours after Russia’s top general threatened pre-emptive strikes on proposed NATO missile defense facilities in Europe, the State Department said Thursday the U.S. would “redouble our efforts to seek common ground” with Moscow over the deepening dispute.
At an international conference in Moscow focusing on missile defense, attended by senior U.S. officials, Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov said that “a decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens.”
In response to questions about Makarov’s threat, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said, “I think we’re just going to redouble our efforts to seek common ground on this and to seek understanding.”
In a moving account of the life of his son, pro-life columnist George Will shares anecdotes about John Will, who turns 40 years-old this week but has enjoyed every minute of living despite having Down syndrome.
When Jonathan Frederick Will was born 40 years ago — on May 4, 1972, his father’s 31st birthday — the life expectancy for people with Down syndrome was about 20 years. That is understandable.
The day after Jon was born, a doctor told Jon’s parents that the first question for them was whether they intended to take Jon home from the hospital.
Nonplussed, they said they thought that is what parents do with newborns. Not doing so was, however, still considered an acceptable choice for parents who might prefer to institutionalize or put up for adoption children thought to have necessarily bleak futures. Whether warehoused or just allowed to languish from lack of stimulation and attention, people with Down syndrome, not given early and continuing interventions, were generally thought to be incapable of living well, and hence usually did not live as long as they could have.
Occupy Chicago May Day march pics you won’t see in the establishment media….
Yes, the banner reads, “Open the f*cking borders.” Keep it classy, leftists.
Much more of these pictures MSM will not be showing you found HERE.
All I can say is, ABOUT DAMN TIME! Heck, instead of giving to the poor in India our Christian churches should be giving to them to buy guns, ammo, explosives, etc.
Wait, if this happens, Obama and the liberals will be pissing and shitting all over themselves because their islamic assholes are being shot back by, gasp, Christians!
(Christian Post) — The head of the Nigerian Christian community has issued a final warning call to the government urging the country’s leadership to use all necessary means to halt protracted violence against Christians in the country.
“I will now make a final call to the Nigerian government to use all resources available to it to clearly define and neutralize the problem as other nations have done,” Ayo Oritsejafor, told reporters Wednesday, according to the AFP.
“The church leadership has hitherto put great restraint on the restive and aggrieved millions of Nigerians, but can no longer guarantee such cooperation if this trend of terror is not halted immediately,” the leader of the Christian Association of Nigeria added.
The call from Oritsejafor came only days after two gunmen stormed church services at Bayero University in the city of Kano – leaving 19 people dead. The same day, four other people were killed as they left a church in the northeastern city of Maiduguri. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks but many point to the Islamist militant group Boko Harm as the likely perpetrators of the violence.
Christians in the country have been subject to scores of attacks including Christmas and Easter day bombings that left dozens of worshippers dead.
Wednesday’s final call on Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathon and his government to take significant steps forward to halt the attacks could signal a turning point in the response to violence in the country.
“It is very difficult to really know what’s going to happen,” Jonathan Racho, the regional manger for Africa at International Christian Concern (ICC) told The Christian Post regarding the possibility of an all-out war between Nigeria’s Christians and Boko Haram.
This is what is called a unintended consequence. Obama and his regime don’t like the leader of Egypt so the plot and work and help to have him deposed. Now look what is running Egypt.
Two Egyptian presidential candidates have endorsed jihad against the United States and one of them even supports al Qaeda. MEMRI TV (the Middle East Media Research Institute) has released archival footage of Al-Mun’im Abu Al-Futouh and Hamadein Sabahi from 2004 and 2005 which show them stating their hatred of the United States in absolutely unequivocal terms.
Abd Al-Mun’im Abu Al-Futouh, who is calling himself a “Moderate” Islamist, was a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood. He co-founded the Al-Nahda party, which sees Islam as central to Egypt. Supported by Salafi Islamists, Gama’a Islamiyya, the Islamist group Wasat, and Google executive Wael Ghonim, he said in 2004:
“Like all members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and around the world, I personally hope to have a chance to bear arms to confront the U.S. occupation in Iraq… This is a matter of religion, not of politics. When a Muslim land is occupied, jihad becomes an individual duty”
Al-Futouh is currently polling second in the presidential race.
