What Do Career Politicians, Professors and Community Organizers Have In Common?

When it comes to politics, they think voters are stupid, don’t have time to question their lies, or don’t care!

Why else would career politician, Hillary Clinton, Professor Elizabeth Warren repeat, and community organizer a.k.a., Entreprenever and chief, Barack Obama’s well worn rhetoric, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” referring to private businesses being dependent of big government.

We have a problem and it is a corrupt government and a complicit mainstream media.  Who has time to fact check all the lies we hear every day courtesy of the Obama administration and echoed by the media? Take as an example the huge waste in billions of stimulus dollars Obama spent as payback for getting him elected.

So how is it possible that big government can provide corporations and businesses with the vehicle to succeed? I decided to look on the popular website HowStuffWorks.com to see if they agreed with liberals. This is an excerpt: In 2009, Community Organizer and President Obama’s government spent a staggering $3.5 trillion dollars and raised $2.1 trillion in individual and corporate taxes — still leaving a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars.

The Government doesn’t earn money!  “Government Funded”, “Government Subsidized”, “Government Money”, “Government Grant” … all mean “TAXPAYER FUNDED”, “TAXPAYER SUBSIDIZED”, “TAXPAYER MONEY”, or “TAXPAYER GRANT”. They’re all money from YOUR pocket.  Conclusion: The Government spends money!   Currently we are spending or speeding our way toward $18 trillion in debt.

In fact, 55% of all tax dollars come from small business that are spent on government programs, including infrastructure, roads and bridges.  When a small business person fills up at the pump, on average, we pay almost 50 cents per gallon to the government for taxes on gasoline, approximately 13 cents on every dollar.   Add toll roads to the equation and in many parts of the country the cost to taxpayers for infrastructure goes up.

“To say what he (Obama) said is to say that Steve Jobs didn’t build Apple Computer or that Bill Gates didn’t build Microsoft or that Henry Ford didn’t build Ford Motor Company or that Ray Kroc didn’t build McDonald’s or that Papa John’s didn’t build Papa John’s Pizza. This is the height of foolishness. It shows how out of touch he is with the character of America. It’s one more reason his policies have failed. It’s one more reason why we have to replace him in November.”  Mitt Romney.

Even the Washington Post gave the “You didn’t build that…” liberal nonsense credence, giving him 3 Pinocchio’s.

Here’s what Charles Krauthammer had to say, “The argument between left and right is about what you do beyond infrastructure. It’s about transfer payments and redistributionist taxation, about geometrically expanding entitlements, about tax breaks and subsidies to induce actions pleasing to central planners. It’s about free contraceptives for privileged students and welfare without work — the latest Obama entitlement-by-decree that would fatally undermine the great bipartisan welfare reform of 1996. It’s about endless government handouts that, ironically, are crowding out necessary spending on, yes, infrastructure.”

Professor Elizabeth Warren has never worked in the private sector.  She is my favorite definition of a politician, unemployed and unemployable.  What she fails to say is businesses pay the lion share of the taxes so everyone in this country can enjoy our roads and bridges, including Elizabeth Warren with her progressive anti-business rhetoric.

Enter career politician Hillary Clinton.  There is and there will be hundreds of thousands, if not millions of interviews, videos, news articles, and blogs, written about Clinton, but most assuredly the one she is going to have to walk back more often than most, is this video above about federally mandated minimum wage jobs, and about businesses and technology not being the engine of the US economy and jobs.

After all, The Race Against The Machines has already been lost.  There will be no minimum wage jobs in the future.  People who know how to use a caulk gun will be highly paid by those who do can’t pound a nail.

My prediction is that Hillary Clinton will be pounded back into the stone age by 2016. There will be a 3rd generation POTUS in 2016, like US Senator Marco Rubio, who knows how to use a smartphone. More on this when somebody is ready to listen.

Stop Commercial flights to the United States from West Africa

Reference: Stop Commercial flights to the United States from West Africa

Dear Senator Rubio,

I read your comments on CNN Opinion on Wednesday and as much as I agree with you, temporarily denying visas is not enough.   I am imploring you to take action in Congress to stop commercial flights to the United States from West Africa. Seventy percent (70%) of the people who contract Ebola die! There’s really no “silver bullet”, antidote or vaccine. Congress needs to demand the Obama administration ban air travel to this country from West Africa.

We really don’t know if Ebola is transmitted only by direct contact. The University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy published an article arguing that the current Ebola has “unclear modes of transmission”

Transmission rates in West Africa have risen, not diminished which is proof we do not have this disease under control, increasing the chances we will have travelers from West Africa, arriving in the US desperate for a cure. By January alone. By CDC estimates, Liberia will have 11,000 to 27,000 cases of Ebola.   Why wouldn’t West Africans want to run from Ebola, or if infected come to the U.S. looking for a cure?

There are not enough “boots on the ground” to effectively fight Ebola in West Africa. Military or otherwise, we should offer volunteers significant hazardous pay duty to go to West Africa and put our best resources available there, like small transit care centers, construction of additional treatments centers supplies and training towards defeating Ebola.

Finally, what’s to stop jihadists from getting infected, flying to the U.S. before symptoms are apparent and exposing themselves to as many unsuspecting American citizens as possible? No security checkpoint is going to detect terrorist carrying Ebola, while dormant.

I greatly appreciate your time and prompt attention to this important matter. Thank you for serving Florida.

Sincerely,

Concerned husband, father and employer

It’s Work, Avoiding Work

water board wall street

Get a job!

Below is an example of someone who “works” at avoiding work, see the Ad below and the email response.

The Mainstream Media (MSM) and the White House (WH) brand their own heroes, like the entire Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. No matter what type of movement OWS stands for, including bowel movements, they get a pass.

If you watch the MSM and believe their version of the story, you are being “programmed” for failure. If you are under-privileged, disadvantaged, abused, down on your luck, to the MSM, you can be a hero. You can be on the Front Page. If you do something the MSM programs as good, it erases everything else that’s bad.  Bad doesn’t matter.

MSM says… Out of work, good, successful, bad.  Pacifist good, warrior bad.

There are many everyday heroes, who go about their business, tirelessly, day in, day out, giving it all they’ve got, not giving in, or giving up, to make this world a better place.

If you are up at 4 AM, at work by 5, slinging hash by 6, you’re just another working stiff, chances are, exit Stage Left, no one is interested.

The MSM, they don’t get it. They’re not up at 4 AM. If they are, it’s not to share donuts and coffee with the local cops, or to understand who the real American are.

The real heroes are the everyday, every time, everywhere kind of people, who pay their taxes, to take care of those of you who are on unemployment, those of you on food stamps, those of you on welfare, and those of you with your Obama phones.

If you are, say over 50…? you’ve heard the jingle, “The best part of life, is Folgers in your cup!” It’s a jingle embedded in our lives. We may not live the jingle, but we won’t forget it. Great advertising!  What if the White House came up with a less than forgettable jingle of their own?

How about, “The best part of life, is people giving it all they have.” or “The best part of giving, is not giving up.”

Instead the WH advertises dependency (see a Craig’s List job’s ad response below).

Granted some of the “heroes”, are real life heroes, but only in a moment in time, and like most ordinary folks, they’re just giving it all they’ve got.

If you are on any government program and deservedly so, , you should be very concerned about the freeloaders who make it their job, to thwart the system. Case in point, a fellow small business looking for an office manager, placed an ad on Craig’s List.

Here’s an example of a freeloader “at work avoiding work”, the Ad and the email response (below):

Office Manager Ad

Response Office Manager Ad

Plain and simple.  If you are on Federal Unemployment, you are required to seek employment, right?  Is this is how you apply for a job?

Many Americans work very hard.  Many start early and work late into the night.  Many of us are tired of the lies, and of people taking the easy way out.

We’re tired of the MSM giving lazy, shiftless people a pass, especially Harry Reid and the US Senate.

We’re also tired hearing commercial snippets on NBC (owned by GE) where Brian Williams, tells us to “go green” and turn off the lights. when we leave a room.  No problem Brian. We’ll turn off NBC.  Exit Stage Right.

Save Small Business from the Fiscal Cliff – Letter to US Legislators from the NFIB

capitolAs a small-business owner, I urge you to act now to prevent the tax increases that will impact small businesses if action isn’t taken to avoid going over the Fiscal Cliff.

Several tax rates that affect small business are set to expire at the end of this year. Some of the changes that will impact small business include:

● Individual income tax rates would rise; the 15 percent bracket would become the lowest tax rate. The 25, 28, 33 and 35 percent brackets would rise to 28, 31, 36 and 39.6 percent

● The estate tax rate would increase from 35 percent to 55 percent, and the exemption would decrease to $1 million from $5 million

● The capital gains rate would increase to 20 percent from 15 percent for top earners and rise to 10 percent from zero for those with lower incomes

● Dividends would be taxed as ordinary income rather than capital gains

● The Section 179 expensing limit will fall back to $25,000 and real property will no longer be included

● The start-up deduction for businesses will be reduced from $10,000 to $5,000

● An estimated 31 million additional taxpayers would be required to pay the AMT

This adds up to an almost $500 billion tax increase for 2013 alone. This is a major concern for small business owners like me, since I do not know what my tax liability will be next year. The uncertainty this creates is already having an impact on my ability to make plans to grow my business or add jobs.

Most small businesses are organized as pass-through entities, where the business owner reports their business’s income on their individual tax returns. Allowing the current tax rates to expire will increase the taxes that small businesses pay, directly impacting the ability of small-business owners to invest money back into their businesses.

Raising taxes on small businesses, especially in the current economic environment, hurts our ability to grow and create jobs. I encourage you to give small-business owners the certainty we desperately need by extending all the current tax rates across the board and fighting to avoid the Fiscal Cliff.

Marco Rubio for President – Just Sayin’

Marco Rubio for President!  What’s not to like?  A guy who comes from a working class family.  He knows the meaning of “have not” and earning everything he has achieved.  Marco Rubio is living the “American Dream” and need not apologize for it.

Several small business owners had the opportunity to meet Marco Rubio and we were not disappointed.  The National Federation Independent Business (NFIB) invited us to the Tampa Bay Brewing Company who hosted the announcement by NFIB Florida of their endorsement of Mr. Rubio for the US Senate.

Mr. Rubio spent several hours with a group of local Tampa Bay area small business owners and NFIB members.  Several small businesses were fortunate to spend time with him introducing their companies and the challenges they face in today’s economy.

Mr. Rubio also spent time in a sit down discussion with us where I was able to express my favorite political topic, a “payroll tax holiday.”

Marco Rubio has stayed on message throughout a bitterly contested 2010 race for the US Senate seat versus Charlie Crist (Independent) and Kendrick Meeks (Democrat).  The mud-slinging between candidates has been ad nauseam, but I have to say, for the most part, candidate Rubio has stayed above the fray.  He remains on message, which my interpretation is, “less government, repeal Obamacare, keep the Bush tax cuts, vote against Cap and Trade and freeze government spending.”

No doubt we are talking about the next US Senator to represent. Florida.  Now Mr. Rubio, how about that payroll tax holiday for small businesses and their employees?
