The Tax Revenue Thanksgiving Feast

The Tax Revenue Thanksgiving Feast | Coffee Party Cincinnati | Scoop.it

ICYMI, 80 CEOs recently called on our government to raise taxes and cut spending, even as the lobbying for corporate tax breaks and loopholes continues. The pressure to resolve the so-called "fiscal cliff" is already building, and Congress will be tackling this thorny problem shortly.

Which of these CEOs do you think is willing to give up their sweetheart deal because it's best for the country? And should our government be taking direction from corporations?

From "limited government" to Government as a force to be used take away voting rights

From "limited government" to Government as a force to be used take away voting rights | Coffee Party Cincinnati | Scoop.it

by HAL ZIEGLER, former Republican State Senator in Michigan

 

To some of us who were part of the GOP for years--and followed its history from Lincoln to the early 2000's, we believe an entirely new GOP has evolved--literally destroying the old GOP.


A Party that once stood for individual rights and freedom of expression replaced by suppression of those rights through Jim Crow voting laws.


A Party that believed in limited Government now sees Government as a force to be used to go after voting rights.


A Party that believed in strict adherence to the Constitution has been told 10 times in just a few months its actions were unconstitutional.


A Party that championed Separation of Church and State now includes in its platform the mandates of some religious groups.


A Party that worked with LBJ to secure passage of the Civil Rights Act now seeks to trample on the rights of minorities.


A Party that woke up and saw the dangers of a racist movement, the John Burch Society, and closed its doors to such a movement, but has now opened its doors to its successor, the Tea Party.


A Party that, at the eleventh hour, worked across the aisle when the country was at risk and needed solutions, now purges any member who dares mention compromise.


A Party that once felt pride in exercising its legislative duties is now led by a Senate Leader who believes a Senator's duty is solely to destroy the Presidency.


A Party that celebrates annually, a Lincoln day dinner and embraced by the likes of Taft, Goldwater, Kemp, yes Nixon, Ford, Dirksen, Bush I, Dole, Reagan and so many other good men and women, now embraces a nominee who flip-flops on virtually all issues, lies regarding four murders of Americans for political points--and well to sum it up, is running a "dishonest campaign"--those being the words of Newt Gingrich during the primaries.


A Party whose core was once real conservatives, not neo-conservative obstructionists, and embraced by those who believed in the rights of the individual and limited Government, has been replaced by a party whose belief is the Government is the tool to use to deny voting rights, so a party who believed in tolerance has been replaced by racism and religious extremism.


YES a NEW PARTY, but to those who gave much to the OLD PARTY, nothing but regret, sorrow and concern for the future of the Two-Party System, and the Country.

Report: Banks torpedoed rules that could have saved them - USATODAY.com | Coffee Party Cincinnati | Scoop.it

The Bush administration backed off proposed crackdowns on no-money-down, interest-only mortgages years before the economy collapsed, buckling to pressure from some of the same banks that have now failed.
