IN OTHER WORDS, SHUT UP!

That’s the phrase we hear when people want the conversation to end, when they lack empathy to understand your feelings, and when they don’t want to hear anything more from you, but don’t have the guts to just say, “shut up.” It’s a way of dismissing you out of hand and shutting down the discussion […]

New Taxes? Is Anyone Really Surprised?

If there was anyone who actually believed President Obama when he said he wouldn’t raise taxes on families making less than $250,000, the Supreme Court has set the record straight. Whether you agree or not with the Supreme Court’s holding, failure to buy insurance under the Obamacare mandate will result in a tax, not a […]

Only Some of Us Have to Pay Our Fair Share

I thought it was outrageous when Timothy Geithner hadn’t paid his taxes and coughed up $42,000 before being confirmed as Secretary of the Treasury, but there are plenty more like him currently in the Obama Administration. I’m sure there have always been those who try to get away with not paying their taxes, but it’s […]

I’M NOT ASHAMED….OF MAKING MONEY!

I wish I were in the 1%.  It beats being in the 99% as far as I’m concerned.  Because I live in Washington State and have no family close by, money enables me to travel to California, New York, Colorado and Georgia to visit the ones I love.  It also enables me to travel to […]

SUCCESS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED, NOT PUNISHED

President Obama promised to bring this country together after the policies of the Bush administration divided the country so deeply.  Obama promised to be the President of all people. That was before he was elected.  More than two and a half years later, the country remains divided.  President Obama and his new campaign to create […]

Those Stealthy Little Bearded Bast@#%&

For a change, I thought I’d post something that should put a smile on your face.  Chuck Woolery of Love Connection fame, has been making PSA-style videos mocking liberal tax ideas.  This is one of his latest – taxing the Amish 153%  Listen carefully to Al Sharpton, who has his own show on MSNBC, and […]

Down the Drain

Anyone who’s read my website, knows how much I HATE tax credits.  When someone’s tax credit exceeds the amount he pays in federal income taxes, the money he receives back from the government is welfare.  Period.  Now it seems the IRS has given $4.2 billion in refundable tax credits last year to illegal aliens – […]

WHAT’S IN A NUMBER?

            For those old enough to remember comedian, Jack Benny, he insisted on remaining 39 years old on stage despite his actual age.  Some women today still coyly respond “39” when asked their age. Well, they probably wouldn’t if they lived in Afghanistan.  The number 39 is a big no-no […]

DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO

When he resigned earlier this month, I thought, with “certitude,” that we’d heard the last of lawmaker Anthony Weiner’s texting, sexting, lying, denying and whining, but I was wrong.  Just when I thought is was safe to go back to Twitter, I read that he didn’t have a current registration sticker on his Nissan Pathfinder.  […]

Raising Taxes Just Isn’t Going To Get Us Out of This Mess

Link: Raising Taxes Just Isn’t Going To Get Us Out of This Mess The left’s mantra:  The Rich Don’t Pay Enough!  Raise Taxes On the Millionaires!  Raise Taxes on the Wealthy!  Well, this latest article shows that a 100% tax on those earning $500,000 would not significantly solve the deficit problem.
