GOP to Warren Buffett: Show us your tax returns
Submitted by motherbelt on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 10:08am.
An excellent exposure of Buffett's contradictions:
The Real Buffet Rule
Buffett could give more of his money to the government, but he doesn't. He gives it to organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
when it comes to his actions, Buffett has some good things to say. What his actions tell us is that resources do more good in the hands of individuals and organizations other than the government.

And this person wants to become a US Senator? And here's how the libs respond to this. http://www.tnr.com/blog/jonathan-cohn/78459/moral-argument-soaking-the-rich Some very demented quotes:
The socialist argument is, "The only re-investment allowed is by taxation." The fact that the rich provides factories to make products that adds to peoples' comfort (wash machines, air conditioning, miracle medicine, automobiles, insecticides, etc.) and provides jobs -- simply doesn't cut it in a socialist's mind. Nope -- the innovative person has to, instead, give up his right to his money, so that a bureaucracy can re-distribute it according to the socialist's superior goals.

I found a great money quote which really encapsulates the liberals' contention that everything belongs to everyone.
From the Richmond Times-Dispatch editorial Class Warfare: No New Taxes
The president's proposal calls to mind an economist's description of the Alice-in-Wonderland morality of contemporary liberalism, in which " 'I want mine' is regarded as greedy and unenlightened, while 'I want yours' is regarded as selfless and progressive.

The way this government throws away money.
Almost a TRILLION dollars on "Stimulus" that didn't stimulate anything. A half a billion for a stupid idea (you bet those asshats took the Fifth, there are millions in offshore accounts, no doubt), SIXTEEN dollar muffins.
I really want to see some accountability in government. As in people go to jail for this kind of nonsense. A banker who was acting in a trustee capacity would go to jail, so why not these pencil necked government types? If they had to think about that before pulling this kind of wanton graft, it would stop. In a hurry.

Over the past year the government hasn't laid off a single civil servant.
But others entertain strong doubts about the willingness and ability of the Greek political class to implement the structural measures that will improve the performance of the Greek economy. "The present government has done absolutely nothing during the last 12 months to speed up privatizations, reduce the public sector or open up closed professions," Athanasios Papandropoulos, a leading economic analyst, told me recently in an interview. "In these 12 months it has not fired even one civil servant. The only thing it is doing is trying to tax the private sector out of existence. Why should we believe that they will do something different now?"
Today most Greeks think that it is Greece's foreign lenders—especially Germany—that are imposing on the country the harsh new taxes that, absent structural reforms, will simply make the recession deeper. Mr. Andrianopoulos says that the lenders know better. "Our international creditors should make it very clear that it is not they that are forcing Greeks to pay higher taxes, but rather the unwillingness of the Greek government to fire civil servants, to stop subsidizing the unions and to close defunct state bodies."

I was on a fishing trip with my two sons in Alaska and we returned late yesterday.
What a week y'all have had!
Between Al "Fungus" Sharpton, Bill "Bowel Movement" Maher and the Troy Davis execution, we didn't hear much while we were hooking some great fish. Some we did the "catch & release" thing. Other fish got the "catch, filet & fry" thing. Was able to spend some great time with my sons.
Looking forward to catching up here.
Submitted by Blonde on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 12:24pm.
Oh I am green as spinach, Sam.
I've never been to Alaska, but it's on my bucket list. Closest I've been is Vancouver Island, which was absolutely gorgeous. And the fishing there was spectacular.
So what did you catch?
Submitted by drsamherman on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 1:11pm.
Our travel package included a guide, preparation of the fish for shipment on dry ice and of course transportation to/from fishing sites.
We caught Steelhead and Rainbow trout, Coho and Silver salmon that can be prepped and shipped. We also caught some Northern Pike, but they are currently on the catch and release list.
We caught the pike using the fuzzies, because the Northern Pike will go after mice and ducklings. The pike are aggressive players, and the boys really enjoyed that.
Having fish tacos, a good local microbrew and salt-roasted potatoes for dinner. My wife took the girls to see some shows in New York and caught a lot of shopping bags. Her favorite species is the marked-down designer shoe. My daughters prefer going after the more elusive discounted designer handbags.
Submitted by Blonde on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 1:30pm.
As a reformed shopper, I mean. (Christmas hint for you, Sam....for your daughters. I have one I bought years ago, and I still get compliments on it, they are awesome and warrantied for life, too).
Sounds like you're eating well, again! Do you have a flickr account? I'd love to see the Alaska photos.
My FIL had a fly-in place in Canada north of International Falls, MN. The northerns were fierce up there, but I always threw them back, actually I threw almost everything back as the only freshwater fish I'm fond of is walleye. Northerns are really fun to catch. They look so, I don't know, prehistoric, maybe? Did you get ripped off by any seals (happened to me one time, the guide was furious!).
When we did our Vancouver trip, we didn't ship any fresh fish back...but we did have some of the Kings smoked and canned, as well as smoked and vacuum packed. OMG! The canned stuff was beyond delish! I'll try to find the cannery, I know you can buy their stuff, even if you haven't caught it, as I ended up (after giving away some to a friend) buying a case for this friend as a wedding gift!

...to catch the Coho and Silver salmon and then came back to the Anchorage area for the Steelhead and Rainbow trout.
The pike on the Kenai waterways were playing very nicely. They put up a fight, but it was catch and release so we did.
On the other hand, the salmon and trout are filleted, smoked or frozen and made for the best fish tacos (trout)!

Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson talked about Obama's "shovel ready jobs" and his neighbor's dogs creating more work than a federal program. Johnson's analogy was apropos and he aimed the comment at Obama but, Johnsons could have aimed that comment at Romney, the former liberal Governor of "Taxachusetts" and been just as accurate.
At the GOP candidates debate in Florida Romney put on a pretty good show on the "get the federal government out of education" gambit. Mitt was all over that question like a shredded up rug and a six month old puppy. Romney wants to have it both ways. He wants to run for superintendent of schools and president of the US. Romney claims he wants less federal involvement and with the next breath says he wants more government involvement.
If Romney really wants to "get the federal government out of education," why is he, as a candidate for the highest federal office, concerning himself with whether and how much "your kids" are tested, how bright your teachers are and whether they are paid "properly." These sort of things are local issues that should be addressed by local and state school boards and local voters.
Romney also wants to stand with the unions.In view of what happened in Madison,Wisconsin he would say that!
"And as President I will stand up to the national teachers unions." ---Mitt Romney.
Rick Perry tried to put a dunce hat on Mitt but missed. Perry or any of the other candidates could have conservatively insisted that if the Mittser really was in favor of getting the federal government out of education then why would Romney say he "stands with the teacher's unions?" If indeed the federal government is out of education, the teachers unions would have no reason to be lobbying in Washington and Mitt would have no opportunity to heroically "stand up" to them.
That Race To the Top gambit
Perry tried to pin the tail on the donkey again but again missed the liberal jackass. Romney pretended not to know what Perry was talking about. "I'm not sure exactly what he's saying," replied Romney. "I don't support any particular program that he's describing. I think that the President — I think the Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is doing a good thing by saying, you know what, we should insist that teachers get evaluated and that schools have the opportunity to see which teachers succeeding and which ones are failing and that teachers that are not successful are removed from the classroom. Those ideas by Secretary Duncan, that is a lot better than what the President did which is cutting off school choice in the Washington, D.C. schools."
Perry tired to locate the good Mitt and the bad Mitt but I suppose even the New York Times did a better job of finding the real Mitt. Mitt Landler and Trip Gabriel pointed out that Romney, just the day before he denied supporting the program, did just that. At a town hall meeting in Miami on Wednesday, Romney said: "I think Secretary Duncan has done some good things," he said. "I hope that's not heresy in this room. He, for instance, has a program called Race to the Top, which encourages schools to have more choice, more testing of kids, more evaluation of teachers. Those are things I think make sense."
Those "shovel-ready jobs"
Gary Johnson's timeless observation that his neighbor's dogs regularly create more shovel-ready jobs than Obama has with all his stimulus programs. Romney, it appears is not the fellow that will end the unions' gravy train that is the Department of Education!

I don't know if this has been mentioned before (apologies if it has, and apologies for the length of this post) -- but I'm shocked at the length the DOJ will go against easy prey, while leaving true lawbreakers (aka Black Panthers) alone. This is about wheelchair access to a person at the Price is Right studios -- which were built, by the way, prior to ADA - American Disability Act. Bottom line -- this is outrageous, and goes to show what our Federal Gov is doing to destroy business in this country.
Findings: (1) Wheelchair access wasn't perfect, and (2) The Price is Right website was not fully accessible to individuals with disabilities, and that information regarding wheelchair seating, auxiliary aids and services, and other accommodations that individuals with disabilities may need to attend a taping of the Show or be interviewed as a potential contestant was not readily available on the website.
And a whole lot more. Read here. http://www.ada.gov/price-is-right.htm

He asked me if I could recommend anyone who did great body paint, and I said no, but that I would be glad to do the work for her myself.
He laughed and said, "How much?" So I threw out a number, "$500."
He said, "Geez, I thought it would be at least a $1,000!"
I said, "OK, I'll make it a $1,000, but you have to let me pay you $500 up front (no pun intended), and give me 90 days to pay off the balance."

Sorry to keep bringing this up, but it's really been gnawing at me: who was right? Rick Santorum saying we are subsidizing the tuition for illegal students at UT (University of Texas, aka t.u.) *OR* Rick Perry who said (on Hannity's radio show) that it's not a subsidy.
Whew, I've concluded that Gov. Perry is right. This is more correctly described as a "Tuition Break" vs. a "Tuition Subsidy".
Essentially (for merit-based applications), UT has x number of slots available for in-state students (not exceeding 75% of the incoming class). So whether the slot goes to a US citizen or an illegal alien, the tuition is $9500. I recognize that my taxes subsidize many, many aspects of the illegals here in Texas, but this is not one of them.
Submitted by ckc1227 on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 10:54pm.
You tell us:
"In addition to in state tuition, the Dream Act also gives “Texas Grant” money ($20,000 per illegal alien, at $5,000 a year) to illegal aliens. Additionally, other Texas taxpayer-funded grant programs are available to illegal aliens, including the Texas Equalization Grant program, which is designed to pay the difference between private and public university tuition for private-school attendees who are Texas residents, and Texas state-taxpayer-funded student loans."
So, do you still believe your taxes aren't subsidizing tuition for illegal immigrants?
Submitted by USMC8411 on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 11:16pm.
Guess Marsha Coakley (As Patrick Kennedy calls her) (D-MA) AG said it all: "Technically it is not illegal to be illegal in Massatwoshitts."
Why do we insist on rewarding illegal alien illegal behavior? Why are US Citizens held accountable to any "laws?" Why do we allow politicians to get away with this?
Now, Perry has lost my vote. It seems as if he left the democrat party, but the democrat party did not leave him, so he kept is membership in good standing.
Has the Alamo been torn down yet? What a disgrace to the Texans that lost their lives defending it against Mexicans. Maybe the Texans have learned a lesson in surrendering to Mexican invaders and this is part of some grand reparations program?
We did legally purchase California, New Mexico, Texas, etc from the Mexican government, and it was not "stolen" from them as they claim.
Submitted by mom_rox on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 11:58pm.
I wasn't aware of the grant money. (I certainly do not understand why the illegal student needs to attend a private vs. a public university. ???) Do you have any idea of the amount that has been granted?

Submitted by Radical1979 on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 11:02pm.
If the state of Texas provides ANY money to it's institutions, and if any of those institutions have illegals attending, then Texas is subsidizing the tuition of illegal aliens. That's true of any state. It's very simple.

And the ACLU -- you know, that "great defender of individual rights" -- remains silent on the continuing abuses of the o'bama administration. How predictable. This is BY FAR the most corrupt American government ever. Doing real damage to us all.

Is the mostly unknown series of financial transactions that greatly exacerbated the financial meltdown and necessitated the trillions spent bailing out the many financial institutions that otherwise wouldn't have needed to be bailed out with our money.
Magnetar of course made a large fortune at our expense, without adding anything of productive value to the economy .
These are the things that need to be scrutinized and regulated, not to mention blame,ed for this mess. It serves no purpose to blame Obama or bush directly, but rather as referees of the game. No rules, no penalties, no controls and this is the result.

mentioned once the possibility that because of Palestinian opposition, a two-state solution might not be possible. Yet the entire rest of the Meet the Press interview with Bibi Netanyahu was about trying to get him to say Obama is as strong a friend of Israel as GWB, and the expressed blame on Israel by Obama, Clinton, and others.
The Palestinians clearly will never accept anything known as Israel; it doesn't matter if it were located on Guam, Palestinians and Islam as a whole would set about destroying it by any means necessary. Yet somehow, even with that as a backdrop, Israel is to blame. If these people wanted to be logical, even if they refuse to be reasonable, they should blame the UN rather than Israel; it was the UN that created the state of Israel. The fact that certain Arab nations attacked, and subsequently lost ground as a result of their aggression, is the fault of the leaders of those Arab countries. The whole thing is bizarre.

Tell it like it is brother! Palistine (no such country) will NEVER accept ANYTHING from Israel... EVER! I say stop funding them and let them deal with it. Funny thing, don't see any arab countries helping them like we do, hmmmmm...

Matt Ryan has now fumbled twice because our offensive line can't seem to block anybody.
If they don't tighten up, they are going to screw up my second perfect football weekend in a row.

This is pretty funny....to call attention to yet another progressive stupid idea on the cusp of being passed into law, the young (R)-words had a bake sale, where they charged different prices, based on the buyer's gender/ethnicity.
OMO! The liberals are outraged.
Read it and laugh, it's pretty clever, and leaves me hope that not all young people are liberal twits.

I saw that earlier. Libs are reacting in their usual "civil" way, threatening violence and destruction of property.
Gotta hand it to those young R's though, outnumbered but standing up for themselves!
