tax rate

Something we are ignoring is that most "middle class" individuals not only pay income tax on their earned income but the income they are paid also comes from companies who pay taxes. How can the Heritage Foundation have the nerve to say that because "corporations" pay taxes that their distributions to shareholders have been previously taxed but the money paid to workers should be taxed higher than the earnings distributed to shareholders.

Dog Tags for Children

Until today, I had forgotten about our dog tags, issued in elementary school. I was in second grade when I received mine, though it was then 1959. But I was on the east coast of Florida, the Cuban Exodus was on, and in 1959 Zapata Oil was founded. So odd that the Bay of Pigs borders the Zapata Peninsula.

I found an article in 1951 when dog tags were first issued to 200,000 children in New York City.

Walker goes for Health Savings Accounts – Obama implements Obama Health Insurance Care.

Sometimes a picture is worth more than a 1000 talking points

Elizabeth Eckford goes to school

An interesting image from 1911... "Trickle-Down" economics aren't anything new.

Below is an image that I found while surfing around the internet one day. It's an astonishingly accurate portrayal of how things are now. Although, you would have to (for the most part) replace the "We Fool You" clerics in the poster with the "We Fool You" media of our times. Enjoy.

Environment: Obama apparently on course to approve$$$ use of Bald Eagle feathers for toilet paper.

The WORST custodian of the People's Commons EVER

Obama needs to direct Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack to DENY Idaho’s request for federal resources$$$ to carry out the Lolo aerial wolf cull.

What is the matter with these people!?!? What’s next? Are we going to start using Bald Eagles feathers for Toilet paper because it would earn Obama a campaign donation?!

Lipitor President

These people complaining about feeding hungry people for $6/day (food stamps) are probably obtaining their $3/day lipitor from medicare and not screaming to get high cholesterol people off the public system.

It is always the other guy.
