Massive Anti-Obama Rally Planned for Inauguration Day

Massive Anti-Obama Rally Planned for Inauguration Day | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Inspired by concerns of unemployment, the economy, Benghazi, and matters of foreign policy; organizers are promoting a "Massive Anti-Obama Rally @ Obama’s...

 

Their goal?  500,000+ protesters armed with signs identifying the reason for their participation in the rally.  The invitation expresses the following:

“If you are unsatisfied with President Barack Obama’s reelection win and you further feel that he will ultimately destabilize America completely, then let us join together with bold Anti-Obama signs clearly stating our main grievances…”

Organizers are encouraging those who aren’t able to participate in the rally, on Washington D.C.’s National Mall, to form groups and hold non-violent protests at state capital buildings or other local government venues.   View the invitation.

* Facebook Invitational: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=491217237585916&set=a.239662846074691.64061.239645782

 

Inauguration Day, January 21, 2013 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – Federal Holiday), at the West Front of the Capitol Building, which is currently being reported in the news for ticket purchase.

However, all Anti-Obama supporters shall gather at the National Mall, Fourth Street NW, which is a non-ticketed free area for gathering at 9:00 am for an all-day event.

Help us to realize our dream …

If you cannot afford to go to Washington, D.C., then form local groups to attend non-violent protest marches at state capitol buildings or aimed directly at the nearest affordable U.S. Government location nearest you.

Large groups should upload event videos via Youtube, then viral post them across multiple social networks.

 

As of Dec 5, 2012:

~ NATIONAL PROTEST: INAUGURATION DAY UPDATE ~

You would be genuinely shocked if you knew the actual level of positive response we are receiving from posting the activist call to protest President Obama’s Inauguration Day.

 

The public response has been truly overwhelming and extraordinary, because we have never seen anything like it before!

 

It went viral across the Internet just two days ago and now Anti-Obama news media outlets are getting involved and seeking interviews.

Check These Out--Support Conservative Music Artists and Music With Meaning!

 

I really love the video/song ''Too late to apologize'' [attached] by One Republic,with the lyrics/video produced by soomo publishing! I hope Madison Rising does a remake!

 

Soomo Publishing creates online assignments that bring the best web resources to the college classroom. "Too Late To Apologize: a Declaration" is our first satirical video project and is part of our ongoing effort to facilitate learning in creative, innovative ways. Learn more about Soomo Publishing at soomopublishing.com

Music and video based on "Apologize" by One Republic, http://youtu.be/fm0T7_SGee4  [this isn't the original band video, but the song is the original]   featuring Timbaland, 2007. [One Republic is not a Conservative band, but the song inspired Soomo Publishing to produce the Declaration version, which was done very well with the video and vocals, along with the change in lyrics.]

 

Soomo Publishing came out with another instructional parody video of Lady Gaga's song "Bad Romance" which pays homage to the Women's Suffrage movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYQhRCs9IHM ;it's not bad, but not as meaningful and well done as "Too Late To Apologize", but it is a worthwhile effort in sharing the history of the movement and teaching young adults through music/lyrics. 

 

To get the lyrics or download the mp3, visit soomopublishing.com/declaration 

To find out more about Soomo Publishing please visit http://soomopublishing.com/

 

Madison Rising is a great conservative rock band, with great music too! See link to their latest video "Star Spangled Banner" at: http://youtu.be/c8C7i9kdEf8  ;

It's a Must listen and share!! You can find Madison Rising's website at: http://madisonrising.com to learn more about their music and tour dates.

 

I also like Krista Branch,her popular song "I Am America" http://youtu.be/0heL2Czeraw   inspired by the TeaParty movement became popular as a TeaParty anthem. Her music is very heart felt and sends a strong message on issues important to Conservatism. You can find her website for her latest song "Can You Hear Us Now" at http://kristabranch.com. Another one of my favorites by her is: "Remember Who We Are" http://youtu.be/RHtVxDz43KY  ;

 

These are the artists we should encourage our children to listen to and learn from. Their lyrics teach history, with an emphasis on freedom and traditional values, while much of today's music is sexual and vulgar in tone, with an emphasis on doing what feels right, rather than what is right. 

 

If you have a music lover or aspiring singer,song writer, musician in your family share the gift of music and freedom by sharing these great Conservative songs/musicians. Let's take back the minds and hearts of our youth by taking back the message in media,music and education!!

Phillipine activists say Gangnam Style singer should not apologize to Obama for anti-US war stand

Phillipine activists say Gangnam Style singer should not apologize to Obama for anti-US war stand | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Manila, Philippines- (Update)Leftwing activists in the Philippines belonging to the fisherfolk alliance Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamamalakaya ng Pilipinas (Pamalakaya) on Saturday said "Gangnam Style" singer Psy should not apologize for taking part in two concerts critical of the US war policy.

 

"The Gangnam Style singer did the right thing when he joined two anti-US war concerts in 2004. That is the politically and morally correct thing to do and that advocacy against Washington led war on terror and war of aggression is always a correct position which is highly appreciated by anti-US war and freedom loving people all over the world," said Gerry Albert Corpuz, Pamalakaya information officer.

 

Corpuz said the "Gangland Style" policy on the United States should be condemned to the highest order and Psy, the South Korean pop singer behind the global success of "Gangnam Style" should stick with this political advocacy against US military aggression.

 

"Psy should not be sorry with this anti-US war stand. It is always a welcome news for billions of people opposed to imperial America," the Pamalakaya spokesperson said.

Yeah sure, he's only sorry because he's been exposed and could lose his fame and fortune....I'm sure he still has those sentiments. I hope Obama will not have him perform at Christmas in Washington...he is a disgrace, but it wouldn't surprise me if Obama does have him perform because he likes hosting anti-Americans like the Muslim Brotherhood.

Looks like PSY’s 15-minutes of fame are just about over...He hates America&Rapped About Killing Americans

PSY - Gangnam Style (강남스타일) ▶ NOW available on iTunes: http://Smarturl.it/psygangnam ▶ Official PSY Online Store US & International : http://psy.shop.bravado...

 

It turns out PSY has been involved in several anti-American protest performances. According to Mediaite.com he smashed a model U.S. tank while onstage in 2002 to oppose 37,000 U.S. troops that descended on the Korean Peninsula.

 

A few years later, PSY cursed Americans after a South Korean missionary was executed. His song “Dear American” sets the record straight.

 

“Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully,” he raps.

 

PSY is slated to perform for President Obama for a Christmas In Washington special to air on TNT Friday, December 21. As a result, a petition to rescind his invitation https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/rescind-invite-gangnam-style-rapper-psy-perform-pres-obama-christmas-party-over-troop-killing-song/vKVmX0x3 has been created by outraged Americans for his anti-American song lyrics.

What a shame...he should have kept his politics separate from his Music...my kids love the song&mocking his dance moves....I'll have to tell them to stop listening to it now....His previous rap song cursed Americans, no wonder it didn't go very far...

 

However, I am not surprised Obama has invited him to perform for the Christmas in Washington special on Dec 21. I wonder how many Mao ornaments Obama has on his tree this year??

Tyrant Obama Wants Power to Raise Debt Limit By Himself, Anytime

Tyrant Obama Wants Power to Raise Debt Limit By Himself, Anytime | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
President Obama wants to do away with Congress when it comes to raising the country’s legal debt limit. Instead of getting permission from the people’s elected representatives to borrow and spend more money, he wants to do that all by himself.

 

It seems typical of the President Obama we know, but just a few years ago, he spoke vehemently against putting America in debt. Here is then-Senator Barack Obama on March 16, 2006:
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.
Of course, in Washington, one’s convictions can change with the electoral winds. And so this is the same man who today, as our President, is seeking unlimited authority to raise the country’s debt limit anytime, anywhere, all by himself. No Congress needed."

 

As unpleasant as it may be, congressional debate over increasing the debt limit is an opportunity for Congress to consider vital course corrections on federal spending, including entitlement spending, which is growing unchecked.


Just a few short years ago, Obama said, “This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy” and that “interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans—a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about.”

 

More recently, when he was running for President, Obama condemned George W. Bush for adding $4 trillion to the national debt over eight years, calling it “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” Now—in the past four years—Obama’s Administration has already added almost $6 trillion to the debt. That means he is on track to triple Bush’s debt increase over eight years. But without congressional limits, who can say?


In 2006, Obama concluded:
Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.


We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

 

LBN:

Of course he wants the power to increase the debt, he already bypassed Congress on sending money to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas in Gaza and doesn't enforce immigration laws or DOMA. He passed his own DREAM Act legislation by discontinuing deportations of anchor babies and those brought to the US as 'children', so what's the big deal if he gives himself the power to increase the debt limit all on his own?!

 

When will Americans say enough is enough?? When will Americans take a stand against tyranny like the brave people in Egypt?? We need to do more than tweet,blog, etc. We need to take a stand and do as the people of Egypt or even our forefathers and demand a new govt leadership!!

 

We've had enough of this out of control spending and rogue government doing whatever they want, while the GOP establishment appeases and looks for ways to negotiate raising taxes during an economic recession and high unemployment! There is no deal to make other than cutting spending!! The 'fiscal cliff' is Obama's spending problems, not raising taxes. Stop spending and get the debt down, keep tax rates where they are and let people keep their money so the 'rich'/small businesses can hire people rather than lay more people off and let everyone have more money in their pockets to spend and keep the economy flowing.

 

Liberals are so dumb, they just don't understand economics 101 and it doesn't take much knowledge to understand the basics of out of control spending vs cutting spending. You wouldn't run your own household budget the way the federal govt is running our country unless you wanted to file bankruptcy and end up on welfare or homeless...so why are DEMs insisting on spending into oblivion and taxing those who create jobs? It hasn't worked anywhere else, what makes them think it will work here??

Rep Jim Jordan: GOP Shouldn't Worry over Blame for Fiscal Cliff @SpeakerBoehner

Rep Jim Jordan: GOP Shouldn't Worry over Blame for Fiscal Cliff @SpeakerBoehner | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Republicans should not be worried about who gets the blame should the country go over the fiscal cliff, Rep. Jim Jordan, chairman of the conservative Republican Study Group tells Newsmax.

 

 

“I never worry about the blame game,” said the Ohio congressman. “What I worry about is are we doing the right thing, and the right thing is don’t raise taxes.”

He said the higher rates on the wealthy would fund Washington for only eight days in any case.


“That’s not going to solve the problem, he said. “Someone’s going to have to tell me sometime why it makes sense, that raising taxes on job creators is actually going to create more jobs. I’ve never figured out how that actually is going to work.

“So I’m more focused on not who gets the blame but are we doing the right thing, and the right thing is we need to curtail spending because that will promote economic growth and keep us from getting into a debt crisis.

“And we need to keep tax rates low and provide that certainty that they aren’t going to go up so job creators can actually do what they do best in America: create jobs and grow our economy and get us to that higher percentage growth that we need to really make things prosperous and opportunity exist out there in America.”

But Jordan said he fears that the two parties will cobble together a deal to avoid the cliff, rather than take hard decisions.

Important: Do You Still Support Obamacare? Vote Here Now!




LBN:

Let Obama push us over the 'fiscal cliff'....he is the fiscal cliff...his spending habits are driving us into debt&over the cliff, raising taxes on the rich didn't work in Spain,Greece, etc he must know his plan is not going to work, but he wants to make GOP look bad by saying they wouldn't agree to raise taxes on rich, now everyone will pay more in taxes. Obama wants more people paying higher taxes so he can spend more. He wants the debt limit increased for the same reason the DEMs won't pass a balanced budget...because they want an unlimited spending limit/credit card limit.


DEMs can't be trusted to cut spending later...they never have and never will, even Reagan was fooled in to raising taxes when DEMs promised to cut spending later and it never happened. Speaker Boehner better not throw conservatives under the bus and make the same mistake..sadly reports of him purging conservatives from House Committees which means he is looking to weaken the GOP and allow for the RINOs to go along with DEMs on tax increases.

Audio:Obstructionist Harry Reid wants to change the rules for a filibuster by allowing only 51 votes rather than a 2/3 vote

The Washington Times delivers breaking news and commentary on the issues that affect the future of our nation.

 

via Suzanne Scholl Forget about bipartisanship; Harry Reid has decided there’s no option that goes too far if it means diluting the influence of Republicans. The Senate majority leader plans to break with long-standing tradition in January by rewriting the chamber’s rules to silence the Republican minority.


LBN:

Obstructionist Harry Reid wants to change the rules for a filibuster by allowing only 51 votes rather than a 2/3 vote of 67 people. This would be a nuclear option so that DEMS can push through more bills/laws  that lack bipartisan support. 


This would prevent the GOP from adding any amendments to the bill and shuts the minority down. The GOP have talked about doing this in the past when they held the majority in the Senate, but they never did. Harry Reid would likely go along with this because he has nothing to lose and will likely retire after this term. The older DEMs are not all in agreement with this change, so perhaps it won't get passed.


So instead of bribing RINOs to go along with a bill like they did with Obamacare, Harry Reid will just bypass the minority by making them illigitimate and disenfranchises them. Harry Reid has been the obstructionist the past four years, yet wants to blame the GOP for bills that don't get passed. Harry Reid refuses to even vote on several jobs bills the GOP have submitted over the past four years. Yet the DEMs and GOP all voted against Obama's budget last year. Harry Reid needs to be forced out, he is doing nothing but obstructing any progress in Congress, along with Obama who is unwilling to negotiate on spending cuts.

News Organizations To Start Using Drones by 2015??

News Organizations To Start Using Drones by 2015?? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Excerpted from The Washington Times: Here comes the fly-by media. Preliminary use of diminutive drones is under way among those who see the potential of drones in news gathering, not to mention invasive “gotcha”-style journalism. Deadline Detroit — “a homegrown media revolution” manned by former veteran journalists — has already used footage made by “Tretch5000,” an anonymous hobbyist who used a camera-mounted drone to peek inside abandoned housing and old civic buildings, producing a telling video vignette.

 

“There’s a part of me that finds this kind of creepy and fraught with ‘big brother is watching’ issues. While we might trust public radio journalists and academics, there were rumors earlier this week that TMZ had purchased a drone to assist in its paparazzi-style coverage of celebrities,” says Vince Duffy, chairman of the Radio Television Digital News Association.

 

“But why wouldn’t they get one? Could websites that cover celebrities resist the urge to fly drones over celebrity weddings, outdoor red carpets, and beaches where starlets might be caught topless?” Mr. Duffy asks.

 

The University of Missouri has awarded a $25,000 grant to public radio station KBIA to explore drone journalism in places “reporters can’t go or reach,” while the University of Nebraska has won $50,000 from the Knight Foundation for a new Drone Journalism Lab.Mr. Duffy points out that the Federal Aviation Administration requires unmanned aircraft systems to be within the operator’s line of sight, cruise below 400 feet during daylight hours and avoid airports, among other things.

 

“Journalism organizations would certainly have many reasons to fly drones far from the person controlling it, or on some type of preprogrammed autopilot course,” Mr. Duffy says. “The FAA is looking into how it can regulate the coming ‘drone age’ safely. They expect to have new rules by 2015. The ethical issues for using drones for journalism will probably be up in the air much after that.”

Keep reading…

 

LBN:

This is an invasion of privacy...one which I hope is not approved. This abuses the power of the media, it's bad enough the govt wants to use them in the name of 'security'. They were intended for covert military operations and now the technology is going to be abused.

Clinton: US will ‘take action’ if Syria uses chemical weapons - The Hill's Global Affairs

Clinton: US will ‘take action’ if Syria uses chemical weapons - The Hill's Global Affairs | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Clinton would not elaborate on what action the U. S.

 

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday warned Syria’s government that the U.S. was “planning to take action” if Damascus used chemical weapons against opposition forces.

 

“We are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur,” said Clinton, according to reports.

 

Clinton, who spoke to reporters at a press conference in Prague, where she is stopping on a weeklong European tour, would not elaborate on what action the U.S. would consider taking, but said the use of chemical weapons would be a “red line.”


“I'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of credible evidence that the Assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people,” said the secretary.

 

LBN:

By the time the US takes any action thousands could be dead. I hope Israel does what needs to be done before then. Obama&Hillary would probably issue some sort of UN sanctions or something weak like they do with Iran anyway. They can't be taken seriously.

NYT: Tax Arithmetic Shows Increasing Top Tax Rate Only Beginning, More Taxes To Follow

NYT: Tax Arithmetic Shows Increasing Top Tax Rate Only Beginning, More Taxes To Follow | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Despite hints that President Obama and House Speaker John A. Boehner might compromise on the tax rate paid by top earners, a host of other tax questions could still derail a fiscal deal. Even if Republicans were to agree to Mr. Obama's core demand - that the top marginal income rates return to the Clinton-era levels of 36 percent and 39.6 percent after Dec. 31, rather than stay at the Bush-era rates of 33 percent and 35 percent - the additional revenue would be only about a quarter of the $1.6 trillion that Mr. Obama wants to collect over 10 years. That would be about half of the $800 billion that Republicans have said they would be willing to raise. LBN: From increasing tax rates on small businesses, the top 2% to taxing dividends, capital gains and increasing the estate tax, along with the obamacare mandates....some people could pay over 50% of their total assets and income by the time you factor all these taxes and add state taxes!!

Show This To Anyone That Believes That Taxes Are Too Low

Show This To Anyone That Believes That Taxes Are Too Low | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Every year average Americans pay dozens of different types of taxes, and yet many of our politicians are very open about the fact that they want to raise rates...

 

If you know of anyone out there that believes that taxes are "too low", please show this article to them.

Just counting federal, state and local income taxes, some Americans will be paying marginal tax rates of over 50 percent in 2013. But like I said, there are a lot of other taxes we pay than just those.

The following are 44 more taxes that at least some average Americans are paying now or will be paying soon other than federal, state and local income taxes...

#1 Building Permit Taxes

#2 Capital Gains Taxes

#3 Cigarette Taxes

#4 Court Fines (indirect taxes)

#5 Dog License Taxes

#6 Drivers License Fees (another form of taxation)

#7 Federal Unemployment Taxes

#8 Fishing License Taxes

#9 Food License Taxes

#10 Gasoline Taxes

#11 Gift Taxes

#12 Hunting License Taxes

#13 Inheritance Taxes

#14 Inventory Taxes

#15 IRS Interest Charges (tax on top of tax)

#16 IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax)

#17 Liquor Taxes

#18 Luxury Taxes

#19 Marriage License Taxes

#20 Medicare Taxes

#21 Medicare Tax Surcharge On High Earning Americans Under Obamacare

#22 Obamacare Individual Mandate Excise Tax (if you don't buy "qualifying" health insurance under Obamacare you will have to pay an additional tax)

#23 Obamacare Surtax On Investment Income (a new 3.8% surtax on investment income that goes into effect next year)

#24 Property Taxes

#25 Recreational Vehicle Taxes

#26 Toll Booth Taxes

#27 Sales Taxes

#28 Self-Employment Taxes

#29 School Taxes

#30 Septic Permit Taxes

#31 Service Charge Taxes

#32 Social Security Taxes

#33 State Unemployment Taxes (SUTA)

#34 Tanning Tax (a new Obamacare tax on tanning services)

#35 Telephone Federal Excise Taxes

#36 Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Taxes

#37 Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Taxes

#38 Telephone State And Local Taxes

#39 Tire Taxes

#40 Tolls (another form of taxation)

#41 Traffic Fines (indirect taxation)

#42 Utility Taxes

#43 Vehicle Registration Taxes

#44 Workers Compensation Taxes

Sadly, this list is far from complete. There are many more forms of taxation that could be included.

When you account for all forms of taxation, there are some Americans that "play by the rules" that are sending more than half of their incomes to the government.

This is why "tax avoidance" has become a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States. People are sick and tired of being drained dry by a system that is way too complicated and way too unfair.

Posted below are 30 reasons why the U.S. tax system is stupid. Some of these facts I have discussed before, and some of them are new. You might want to be sitting down while you are reading this, because this list is likely to make many of you very angry...

1. Thanks to Proposition 30, many high income residents of California will be paying marginal income tax rates of 51.9% in 2013 if the fiscal cliff is not avoided. Keep in mind that the 51.9% figure only includes federal and state income taxes. It does not count any of the dozens of other taxes that we pay each year.

2. If a fiscal cliff deal is not reached, many residents of New York and Hawaii will also be paying marginal income tax rates of more than 50 percent.

3. If Americans fully funded the government through their taxes without any borrowing, the average American would have to work for 197 days just to meet the expenses incurred by government.

4. The U.S. tax code is now 3.8 million words long. If you took all of William Shakespeare's works and collected them together, the entire collection would only be about 900,000 words long.

5. According to the National Taxpayers Union, U.S. taxpayers spend more than 7.6 billion hours complying with federal tax requirements each year. Imagine what our society would look like if all of that time was spent on more economically profitable activities.

6. 75 years ago, the instructions for Form 1040 were two pages long. Today, they are 189 pages long.

7. There have been 4,428 changes to the tax code over the last decade. It is incredibly costly to change tax software, tax manuals and tax instruction booklets for all of those changes.

8. According to the National Taxpayers Union, the IRS currently has 1,999 different publications, forms, and instruction sheets that you can download from the IRS website.

9. Our tax system has become so complicated that it is almost impossible to file your taxes correctly. For example, back in 1998 Money Magazine had 46 different tax professionals complete a tax return for a hypothetical household. All 46 of them came up with a different result.

10. In 2009, PC World had five of the most popular tax preparation software websites prepare a tax return for a hypothetical household. All five of them came up with a different result.

11. The IRS spends $2.45 for every $100 that it collects in taxes. That is incredibly inefficient.

12. According to The Tax Foundation, the average American has to work until April 17th just to pay federal, state, and local taxes. Back in 1900, "Tax Freedom Day" came on January 22nd.

13. When the U.S. government first implemented a personal income tax back in 1913, the vast majority of the population paid a rate of just 1 percent, and the highest marginal tax rate was just 7 percent.

14. Residents of New Jersey pay $1.64 in taxes for every $1.00 of federal spending that they get back.

15. The United States is the only nation on the planet that tries to tax citizens on what they earn in foreign countries.

16. According to Forbes, the 400 highest earning Americans pay an average federal income tax rate of just 18 percent.

17. Warren Buffett had an effective federal income tax rate of just 17.4 percent for 2010.

18. The top 20 percent of all income earners in the United States pay approximately 86 percent of all federal income taxes.

19. Sadly, as Bill Whittle has shown, you could take every single penny that every American earns above $250,000 and it would only fund about 38 percent of the federal budget.

20. The United States has the highest corporate tax rate in the world (35 percent). In Ireland, the corporate tax rate is only 12.5 percent. This is causing thousands of corporations to move operations out of the United States and into other countries.

21. Some tax havens are doing a booming business in setting up sham headquarters for U.S. corporations. For example, the city of Zug, Switzerland only has a population of 26,000 people but it is the headquarters for 30,000 companies.

22. In 1950, corporate taxes accounted for about 30 percent of all federal revenue. In 2012, corporate taxes will account for less than 7 percent of all federal revenue.

23. In a previous article, I discussed how many of our largest corporations make huge profits and yet pay less than nothing in taxes....

LBN:

Of course taxes/revenue isn't the real problem, but spending. If the govt would just stop spending so much http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/55-facts-about-the-debt-and-u-s-government-finances-that-every-american-voter-should-know and cut waste http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/30-stupid-things-the-governemnt-is-spending-money-on ;

we might actually stop the bleeding and get our debt under control. However, that is not what the Obama administration is willing to do. Obama insists on taxing the top 2% who are already paying more than the rest of the population. They pay 70% of income taxes while less than 50% pay no taxes at all!

 

I agree it's time to change our tax code and reform it and create a truly 'fair tax'. Everyone should pay a portion of taxes. Creating a flat tax could allow for everyone to pay the same rate, but determining what is a 'fair' rate is the hard part since at least 50% of the population are considered in poverty or below poverty, while others earn more income. Some think a VAT [value added tax] would be a good way to eliminate state&federal taxes by charging everyone one tax rate when making purchases, however, it could cause the price of shopping for basic necessisities go up for everyone and those on welfare/food stamps would still not pay anything. The welfare/food stamp system is abused and until that system is improved we will continue to have waste&fraud and people not qualified abusing the system.

 

Under Obama, the intent is now to allow illegal immigrants to obtain welfare/food stamps while millions of American's are out of jobs and more and more are on welfare/food stamps or disability. Disability payments have risen since the economy has collapsed in 2008 and more people who are unemployed and no longer eligible for unemployment are applying for disability/SSI and now getting on that. Today it was reported the unemployment number dropped below 8%, however it dropped not because more people found full-time work but because more people are no longer looking for full-time work because they are no longer qualified for unemployment benefits and also likely due to part-time seasonal hiring. 

 

In the meantime, Obama is planning a $4 Million taxpayer funded vacation to Hawaii, while the rest of the country is ready to go off the 'fiscal cliff'. Thousands are still suffering without power&plumbing in NYC following Hurricane Sandy, despite Obama saying he would do everything to 'cut the red tape' and make it easier for them to rebuild and get help through FEMA, which is going broke and needs a 'bailout'. The 'fiscal cliff' is not only about taxes going up on all Americans if something isn't agreed to, but the sequestrian/cuts of jobs in our military, defense and other areas in govt which could cause thousands more to lose their jobs and our military to become dangerously weak for our national security. Obama is holding the 'middle class hostage' by insisting taxes be raised on the top 2% rather than cutting any spending. The GOP has offered a proposal to increase 'revenues' without changing the tax rate on anyone, but since Obama's campaign where he campaigned on raising $800M in revenue he has now said he needs $1.6T in revenue and an unlimited debt limit to fix the deficit and is unwilling to cut any spending, especially in areas like Medicare/entitlements which are most abused and out of control. 

 

However, because Obama insists on his way or the highway nothing has been agreed upon and Obama has controlled the narrative because he has the media on his side. Instead Obama insists on putting the blame on the GOP and saying they are 'holding the middle class hostage' because they won't agree to increase tax rates on the top 2% and continue the Bush Tax Cuts for the rest. However, because Obama is unwilling to negotiate with the GOP on making much needed spending cuts and getting reveune from other sources such as cuts in entitlements and capping deductions we are likely to go over the 'fiscal cliff' because Obama wants to spend and tax. He doesn't really want a 'balanced budget', let alone a budget. The DEMs haven't passed a budget in over four years and now he is going into his second term. Even Harry Reid won't allow the Senate to vote on Obama's proposal because they don't want to take the blame for increasing taxes on anyone during a financial crisis. Instead they'd rather wait it out and let taxes go up on everyone and then blame the GOP for not going along with them. However, anyone with any common sense knows it's the Obama administration who is not compromising, not serious about cutting spending and reducing the debt, unwilling to vote on several jobs bills the House has passed, unwilling to vote on Obama's plan and unwilling to take any of the blame for the problems we are still in after four years of Obama's failed leadership and policies.

 

I say let them go over the 'fiscal cliff' and let them take the blame for the increase in taxes, loss in jobs and military cuts,etc. The GOP has made an effort to meet half way and increase revenues without increasing tax rates and the DEMs won't meet half way and make any spending cuts. The GOP should pass a bill to renew the Bush Tax Cuts and then let the DEMs vote on that...if DEMs refuse to vote on that, then the Obama administration will prove themselves to be unwilling to compromise and unwilling to prevent everyone from having their taxes increase.

Harry Reid Blocks Second Attempt By McConnell To Force Senate Vote On Obama’s Fiscal Cliff Plan… | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

You'd think Obama would get the hint that his plan is unacceptable to raise taxes on anyone during a recession that even the DEMs won't vote on it..yet the DEMs are trying to pigeon hold GOP into caving in or holding them responsible if sequestrian takes place and taxes go up on everyone. 

 

What a bunch of manipulative, unethical morons the DEMs are. They should just fix the problem by agreeing to cut spending, but no they are the ones holding the middle class hostage and leading us over a fiscal cliff of too much spending, no cuts and  prolonged debt. 

 

Blame DEMs when the economy totally collapses and everyone's taxes go up, more people lose jobs and the 'rich' leave the country or stop producing more income because they are getting taxed near  50% in some states!

Mafia Shootout In Italian Nursery Playground

Mafia Shootout In Italian Nursery Playground | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
A man is shot dead in a school playground in Italy in a battle between the Scissionisti gang and its rival Girati.

 

A mafia gangster has been shot dead by a rival in the courtyard of an Italian nursery as dozens of children rehearsed their Christmas carol service.

 

Victim Luigi Lucenti, 50, was chased into the nursery by masked gunmen and shot several times at point blank range before his killers escaped on a high powered motorbike.

 

Police said it was a miracle no-one else had been hurt as terrified pupils and teachers dived for cover when the hitmen struck.

 

TV footage showed a huge pool of blood on the floor where Lucenti was shot.

 

The killers struck at a nursery in the Scampia district of Naples - home to the local mafia known as the Camorra - the scene of a bloody turf war between mobsters over the control of the lucrative drugs markets.

Breaking: Karl Rove, Dick Morris benched by Fox News

Breaking: Karl Rove, Dick Morris benched by Fox News | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Fox News chief Roger Ailes has instructed his staff to keep Karl Rove off camera as he works to reposition the cable news station after the election, New York Magazine reported. Dick Morris is also getting benched by Fox.

 

New York Magazine reported that multiple sources say Ailes was angry over Rove’s Election Night meltdown. An Ailes spokesperson, however, told the magazine that there is no rift.

 

Dick Morris is another high-profile pundit getting benched by Fox. Morris was widely mocked for predicting a Romney “landslide” right before the election.

 

Later, he said he was only trying to keep the Romney campaign’s hopes alive.

 

Ailes’ deputy, Fox News programming chief Bill Shine, has ordered producers to seek permission before booking either Rove or Morris for the time being, New York Magazine said.

State finance officials released an updated forecast on Wednesday, as Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton shapes a two-year budget proposal. Despite the overall deficit forecast, they said the state would be able to repay $1.3 billion in delayed school aid.

 

Minnesota comes under full Democratic control next year for the first time since 1991, giving Democrats latitude to raise taxes after years of Republican resistance.

GOP Counters on Budget Offers $800B in Tax Increases w/o Raising Rates??!!

GOP Counters on Budget Offers $800B in Tax Increases w/o Raising Rates??!! | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
House Republicans made a new deficit proposal to the White House that calls for $800 billion in tax increases, half of what President Obama proposed and an amount Republicans say could be achieved without raising tax rates.

 

LBN Update:Boehner and GOP House offered new proposal with half the 1.6T Revenue Obama wanted and it calls for savings in Medicare and Social Security. Would cut Mandatory spending by $900B. The proposal doesn't offer the tax increases on the rich that Obama wants. 

 

This proposal has less cuts than Paul Ryan's plan passed in the House. The White House believes they need to raise top tax rate in order to reduce the debt, which this plan still doesn't change. But the fact of the matter is raising tax rates on the top 1% isn't going to reduce the debt and will only pay off 8.5 days of debt under Obama's spending levels.

 

This plan uses the Boweles Plan from last year's Simpson-Boweles plan. It adjusted the rate of inflation on social security and raises the eligibility age for Medicare, something Obama did discuss last year as a possiblity.

 

I couldn't access the article, but based on the video commentary the above is a summary of what the GOP proposal offers.

LBN:

Stupid liberals....they will never understand taxing the rich is not going to solve anything....why can't they look to Spain or Greece or even the UK as examples?? They claim they will cut taxes for 98% of Americans/middle class...yet it is deception because the 'tax cuts' will keep the tax rate the same, rather than let them expire and go up for everyone. The GOP wants to keep the rate the same for 100% of Americans because it is wreckless to tax anyone during a recession and while we have such high unemployment. Letting the tax rates expire and go up for everyone is the DEMs way of holding the middle class and the American economy hostage. They are manipulating the system and the mainstream media is complicit in playing into this fear. If Obama were serious about fixing the economy he would offer spending cuts, but he'd rather use the Bush Tax Cuts/Rates as bribery to encourage class warfare against the wealthy. If he wants a 'fair tax'..then change the income tax system and make a fair tax where everyone pays into it...poor, middle class and rich! Otherwise, let the DEMs pay higher taxes since they are so adamant it is the solution to all our troubles.

 

Of course the media and Obama admin continues to hide the fact that everyone will pay more in taxes under Obamacare's mandate and those states that don't form health care exchanges will have to pay higher premiums with a 3.5% increased tax rate.
