Randy95023's picture

Let me start by stating that what I'm about to write is NOT intended to be racist in any sense, however it will come off that way if you don't hear me out.  Who "Runs" America?  Can we agree that even though we have an African American President that white males, between 25 and 60 tend to be the people who still "run" America?  From the premise that White Adult Males DO indeed run America I'd like to show why this partially explains the lack of urgency in getting our Economy back on track and people back to work as soon as possible.  The numbers speak for themsel

Some of the most extreme people in this country, and in the world, also claim to be the most religious.  In U.S. politics, religion seems to be a big factor in the election of right-wing Republicans.  I was not raised as a Christian.  In Jewish Sunday School, we obviously did not pay any attention to the New Testiment.  I haven't studied that part of the Bible, nor do I know much about the Old Testiment.  Apparently, there are people who came after Christ who relate different aspects or narratives of his story, and there are direct quotes from Jesus.

My situation.....I choose to have my S-Corp pay about 25% of it's adjusted gross income to me, myself, as an individual for which it pays payroll taxes. Then I pay my individual income tax rate, SS tax, Medicare, CA State Tax, and Los Angeles City tax on that income, at the personal level.

The S-Corp pays corporate tax (a lower rate, of course) on what's left.

bluedog 294's picture

    While spending Billions of dollars "keeping America safe" from terrorists abroad; "home-grown" terrorists are stalking, harassing and torturing innocent Americans every day.

It's called organized stalking, gang stalking, and multi-stalking; and it's happening to hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans every year.

How many victims of this type of stalking are there?

The U.S. Department of Justice did a survey in 2009, "Stalking Victimization in the United States" (Pub # NCJ 224527)
