Doctors' Favorite Phrase - YOU'RE GONNA DIE, UNLESS...!

For years I've believed doctors and medical practitioners have over prescribed, over surgery-ed, over tested and viewed patients as cash-cows, for the most part. KA-CHING, KA-CHING. They can, because they know how to strike fear in the hearts of us unknowing lay-people. They don't even have to use words; it's assumed that if you don't get this or that expensive test or procedure done... YOU'RE GONNA DIE!

Is the Government artificially inflating the Stock Market?

Bush had a task force to pump money into the stock market if need be and something tells me Obama is doing it too.

Fracking continues unabated under Obama Administration

A Corporation Bra

A Corporation Bra

by leighmf

Cars and ladies both wear bras,
Abercrombie led the cause
to harness up our babes and nubies,
So let's rein in Big Corporate Boobies.

More than a handful is a waste.
You sell crayons, I'll sell paste.
We can do it up on our own lands,
free of interest penalty lawyer demands.

Big torpedo boobies squash
you to the wall into ganache!

Who "Runs" America and Why There's No Sense of Urgency

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

Why Is Religion So Subject to Misinterpretations?

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.

Corporate Person-Hood Section 1

So after IM'ing briefly with Sue, learned this is the best place to post follow to on air call.

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.

USS Liberty and more

Why my informational posts on this topic disappear so quickly: brokens links or...?

On June 6, 1967 the USS Liberty was attempting to monitor activity in the Middle East when it was attacked for over an hour by Israeli jets and torpedo boats. 34 Americans were killed and another 172 wounded.

How Can the GOP Run American Government If They Hate It?

The coal country state of West Virginia is in the middle of a special legislative session to deal with a $270 million budget shortfall, and it's setting the stage for Republicans to completely gut the state's government.

It's the same playbook we've seen the right-wing carry out in Wisconsin, in Kansas, in Michigan, and in Ohio.
