Government Cares Naught for the People
Wow. Two hundred posts.
Even I didn’t think I had that much to say.
I know I haven’t been writing a lot recently. I’ve been busy with other projects, both business and personal.
The president espouses that he cares for the Middle Class and the poor, but his actions belie that.
This year, taxes have gone up on the “wealthy”. Most small businesses, like mine, do their business taxes in their personal taxes. The recent tax hikes do not affect me, but they may at some point in the future, and they affect thousands of other small businesses. That’s because income made from the business is taxed at the personal rate, which has a top tier of 40%.
If a small business made enough for the principle owner to have an income of $250k or above, they get hit at 40%. That’s not even counting Obamacare expenses.
In order to lure business back from overseas, or at least their money that has been stashed away, Obama has proposed that the corporate rate be reduced from 35% to 28%.
In other words, screw the Middle Class, I must give my corporate task masters the tax breaks they’ve been looking for. Small business and the Middle Class can bear the burden.
The left keeps complaining about how the rich aren’t paying their fair share, but support a guy who is sticking it to them.
For a president that supposedly cares about the little guy, he sure doesn’t seem to care all that much.
In other news, GOP Governor of New Jersey and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul have engaged in a war of words. Paul accuses Christie of being the “King of Bacon” when it comes to accepting Federal money, while Christie accuses Paul of accepting lots of pork himself for the state of Kentucky.
I’ve written before that I think Rand Paul is nothing more than a poser and grandstander, but both need to shut up. I am so sick to death of hearing about both of them.
Both have presidential aspirations. but you know what? The Republicans don’t choose their candidates, the media does through choosing who they report on and who they don’t. It’s all about “national exposure”, and who the media chooses to expose. I don’t like either one of them. I’m not sure there is anyone from the government elite that I like at all.
Finally, Congress has a new word for “butt out”. It’s called “classified”.
Anything they don’t wish to discuss, they simply say it’s “classified”.
So, Senator, what was said in your committee meeting? “It’s classified.”
For a government “of the people, for the people and by the people”, it sure has gotten very secretive, and if anyone leaks anything, they go after them with a zeal not seen since the Spanish Inquisition. Every day seems to be a new witch hunt within the government, because the people don’t have a right to know what their government is doing.
How much longer are we going to put up with this? We will either take our government back, or we will become a subjugated people. There is no in between.
Which is it going to be?
