Much Needed Middleclass Tax Cuts

tax2

Anyone that tells you the proposed tax cuts are only for the wealthy is lying to you.  Quite the opposite is actually the case.  The proposed tax law changes would let middle class taxpayers bring more of their paycheck home every week.

Every taxpayer has the option of taking a standard deduction of a set amount. Or they have the option to itemize their deductions.  By filling out IRS Schedule A taxpayers provide a list of actual amounts paid for qualified deductions.  If actual expense are more than the standard deductions folks itemize. If not, they take the standard deduction.

Medical expenses above a certain percentage of income, state and local taxes paid, mortgage interest, charitable contributions and other miscellaneous items are now qualified deductions.  Mortgage interest and charitable contributions make up a material amount of total deductions.

Proposed tax cuts would double the standard deduction.  It would take away itemized deduction option while allowing taxpayers to deduct mortgage interest and charitable contributions.  Look at your tax return.  Did you itemize?  If so, subtract mortgage interest and contributions from total itemized deductions.  If that number is less than the standard deduction doubled you will pay less taxes.

The very wealthy could actually pay more taxes even if rate has a slight decrease.  With loopholes and option of taking excessive deductions far exceeding the average income of taxpayers, the taxable income will be much more.  In other words, 15% of 100 is 15. 10% of 200 is 20.

Child care tax credits reduce taxes paid.  The proposed increase to the child care tax credit would reduce taxes for working parents.

First of all not all corporations are profitable.  Not all of those that are making money are making a bundle.  All corporations are owned by people.  All corporations are in the business of making money.  So when those corporations who are doing well have to pay 35% of income to the Federal government here at home or move to China where they will only have to pay 15% to the China.

The proposed cut to corporate rates will make it possible for those who moved operations to another country to come home.  Companies doing well enough to leave in the first place generally need many employees.  Upon their return to the USA they will be providing good jobs.

Time For Congress To Get To Work!

fl

Apparently there is some confusion.  Although The United States of America is The Land Of The Free And The Home Of The Brave, not everything is in fact free.  We are happy to give a hand up but a hand out should not be expected.

There are those in our society that will never be able to fend for themselves through no fault of their own.  As a civilized society we must take care of those in such need.  However when public assistance becomes the family business it helps no one.

Our education system is broken.  Money is not the problem.  US taxpayers pour good money after bad into an institution that is failing this Nation.  We must try something different.  We must make America the land of opportunity for all of her citizens.

Homeless Americans live on our streets.  Many of whom are veterans.  Along with children and the elderly they have been forgotten.  Meanwhile Congress anguish over what to do about dreamers entitled to nothing and demanding it all while burning our flag and shooting the bird at this country.  Time for Congress to get their priorities straight.

Every special interest groups feels entitled to top billing.  When it doesn’t happen tantrums erupt and chaos pursues.  In the end they still don’t get their own way.  Welcome to the real world.  Everything is not about you.

If you want something work to achieve it.  No one is going to hand it to you on a platter.  Stop belly aching and find something positive to do.  Take pride in what you do.  Work hard at what you do.  Do the best possible job you are able.  Be kind to others.  Give someone a helping hand.  Talk is cheap.  That is why actions speak louder than words.

Contrary to what folks like Apple would have us believe.  You don’t need a thousand dollar phone to complete you.  Unless you are independently wealthy there are most likely better things to spend your money on.  But, if you are so inclined to purchase one.  Don’t be so foolish as to take pictures with it while demanding that the United States provide you with all.

It is time for Americans to realize we are not entitled to free stuff.  There is no such thing.  Money doesn’t grow on trees.  People don’t mind paying their fair share.  But, when it comes to taxes there is just so much of a burden taxpayers can bear.  The middle class is past its limits.  Now living paycheck to paycheck, unable to educate their children, the middle class is in desperate need of tax cuts to sustain them.

To those in Congress biting off their noses to spite their constituents faces it is time to shape up or ship out.  Days of taking over half the year off while being paid full-time wages must end.  Healthcare plans good enough for constituents are good enough for Congress.  No more special plans for the “special” folks in Congress.

Time for Congress to be kept honest with term limits.  It is time for voters to hold their Congress Members accountable.  If they are not part of the solution vote them out and find someone who is.  Don’t vote for the Party.  Vote for the person.

Make America Great Again

fr4

To hear pundits opine one might think that Make America Great Again is an extension of the Republican Party.  But, it is not.  Rumor has it that #MAGA are blind followers of Donald J. Trump.  But, we are not.

Make America Great Again is a movement.  The forgotten men and women of all creeds, races, political affiliations, religions, sexual preferences and God knows what else are appalled at the state of our Nation.  We recognize that Washington, DC is filled with corruption and greed.

Those we have sent to represent us in our Nation’s capital have let us down.  While Congress has been busy playing Party politics our roads, bridges, highways, airports, hospitals, schools and ever so much more have crumbled before our eyes.  Anarchists are in our streets, impeding the rights of others, damaging property, silencing those they don’t agree with and violently assaulting others.  Where was Congress?

Veterans that put their lives on the line so that some self-absorbed overpaid nut jobs can sit during our National Anthem are living on our streets in desperate need of care.  Middle class families are living hand to mouth struggling to survive buried in debt.  Our inner cities have housing not fit for human habitation.  Children can no longer play safely on their streets.  What has Congress been doing?

A Nation Under God, our children are no longer allowed to pray at school.  Christians are no longer suppose to say Merry Christmas or Happy Easter.  A Country founded on the freedom of religion no longer allows citizens to practice their faith.  Why did Congress allow our First and Fourth Amendment Rights to be trampled?

The Make America Great Again movement has had enough of the inmates running the asylum.  We wish to return this Nation to one of law and order.  One where our children are safe, well-educated and find the United States to be the land of opportunity for them all.

We remember when family mattered.  People worked to live, not lived to work.  People treated other people how they would like to be treated.  We worked hard for everything we had and were extremely grateful to have it.  People looked for a hand up, not a hand out.

When the United States Congress takes half of the year off how do they expect to get anything done?  With every vote down Party Line why on earth do we need so many of them?  What would possess Congress to weaponize our National Security folks for political fodder?

The time has come for change.  We are One Nation Under God.  It is time we start acting like it.  President Trump and his family are sacrificing a great deal for him to serve this Country.  Never in my life have I ever seen such vilification of one man.  Congress Members stir up hatred of all those supporting the opposition for political gain at the peril of this Nation.

Enough is enough.  We are not democrats or republicans, black or white, we are Americans living in the land of the free and the home of the brave.  Donald J. Trump is not the President of the democrat or republican parties, polls, pundits or propagandists.  He is The 45th President for the people of the United States of America, each and every one.  Given half a chance Donald J. Trump might very well do an outstanding job.

The Bodies Keep Stacking UP

dnc

Vince Foster  On July 20, 1993 forty-eight year old Vince Foster sat down in front of a tree in Marcy Park in McLean, VA.  Mr. Foster leaned his back against the tree, allegedly put a pistol in his mouth and fired.

The person finding Mr. Foster’s body stated that he looked for a gun and did not find one.  After time spent with the FBI the witness recanted his statement.  There were no fingerprints on the outside of the gun.  The two fingerprints found on the inside of the gun were not Foster’s.

Foster started out an Arkansas lawyer.  He was a partner, along with Hillary Clinton at Rose Law Firm.  Foster was among the contingency of attorneys that accompanied the Clintons in Washington, DC

At the time of Vince Foster’s death the Clintons were up to their eyeballs in travelgate.  Foster was one of the lawyers on the Clinton team.

Shawn Lucus  On August 2, 2016 thirty-eight Shawn Lucas was found dead on his bathroom floor.  The cause of his death was a pharmaceutal error.

On July 1, 2016 working as a process-server Mr. Lucus served the DNC and Wasserman Schultz a lawsuit alleging fraud in the Presidential primary favoring Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders.  Mr. Lucas shared a video of him at the DNC on social media before he died.

Kurt Smolek  On August 28, 2017 Kurt Smolek was reported missing. A few days later the body of the forty-five year old diplomatic security special agent to the State Department  was found floating in the Potomac River.

An associate of the Clinton’s, Smolek served in the Hillary Clinton State Department.  At the time of his death he was involved in the investigation of child trafficking of Cambodia’s children.  Included in that investigations were questions regarding the role of the Clinton Foundation’s work with children in Cambodia.

Seth Rich  In the early morning hours of July 10, 2016 the twenty-seven year old DNC staffer’s body was found on the street in Washington, DC.  It was reported that Rich was covered in bruises and shot several times, at least once in the back.

Mr. Rich was employed at the DNC when someone entered their offices and downloaded the infamous e-mails onto a device that was later given to Julian Assange of WikeLeaks.  Mr. Assange issued a twenty thousand dollar reward for information leading to the conviction of the murderer of Seth Rich.

Beranton J. Whisenant Jr.  Thirty-seven year old Federal Prosecutor was found shot in the head floating in the water at a Miami beach.  It was reported that Whisenant’s personal possessions remained with him.

A member of the major crimes unit Whisenant was employed by the US Attorney’s Office in Miami.  At the time of his murder Whisenant was involved with the investigation of voter fraud connected to the DNC regarding mail theft.

Klaus Eberwein, Malcolm X, Peter W. Smith all met an early demise under questionable circumstances.  All had a connection to the DNC players of one kind or another.

None of these cases were given anequate coverage by the main stream media.  All were dismissed quickly as tragic events not needing any investigation.

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

fl8

As this Nation watched Texas and Louisiana were ravaged by mother nature.  Hearts broke around the world  over the devastation we were witnessing.  At the same time the strength of resolve displayed there uplifted us all.  No one cared about race, creed, religion or political party affiliation.  People from all walks of life stepped up to aid those in need.

This is what The United States of America is all about.  The water will recede quickly.  But, life will not be going back to normal any time soon for those in the affected areas.  The generosity of our President and First Lady donating a million dollars to Harvey sets an excellent example for the rest of us.

Many in this country can afford to match their donation and should.  For the rest of us a million dollar donation is not an option.  But, that doesn’t mean your donations are not needed.  One dollar from a million people is still a million dollars.  So open your hearts and wallets.  Give what you can.

Beware of scam artists coming out of the woodwork attempting to make a buck at the expense of those in desperate need.  Make sure your donation is going where you intend it to go.  God Bless The USA.

Some Faces Of Hate And Bigotry

antifa

Dear Americans meet Antifa.  This is the other side that President Trump was referring to.  In addition to the KKK this group descended on Charlottesville.  The only difference between the two is the color of their costume.  Besides that they are pretty much the same.

Unfortunately neither group is hiding their face out of shame.  That would take some sense of decency which is clearly lacking with both.  No they hide their faces to conceal their identity.  Because none would dare to be on the street alone otherwise.  Their strength lies in numbers.  Their victims are picked when they are the most vulnerable.

Don’t be fooled by our unhinged press or politicians that defend, encourage and enable these thugs.  John McCain and others can call them “Americans Standing Up to defy hate and bigotry” all they want.  But Antifa by any other name is still a blight on our society.

This Nation, no matter color, creed, religion or political party find the KKK repulsive at best.  Antifa is much of the same.  No matter your color, creed, religion or political party you must find this group just as unacceptable.

They can march around all they want, chanting whatever vile hateful speech they want.  This is the United States Of America.  The First Amendment gives them that right.  However it does not give either group the right to cover their faces at public rallies or carry weapons.

Those committing crimes must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  One by one they will be herded out of the mob.  They will be standing alone if front the judge.

Why Baseball Is National Pastime

bb

NFL players taking a knee during National Anthem disgrace themselves, their team and this Nation.  Standing for The Star Spangled Banner has nothing to do with race, politics, police or President.  It is showing respect for all this Country stands for.

Arlington National Cemetery’s six hundred and twenty-four acres provide the final resting spot for over fourteen thousand true heroes.  They put their lives on the line so that overpaid, self-indulgent show boats have the right to take a knee during the National Anthem.

Clearly the helmets are not working.  Just because you can, does not mean you should.  For every single NFL player there are hundreds of just as talented if not more so (other than Tom Brady who is also a class act) waiting to take their place.  Any number of them would give their eye teeth to be given the opportunity to be on the field and gladly stand up for this Nation.

High school coaches are fired for taking a knee to pray silently while obnoxious twits have no respect for The Land of The Free and the Home of the Brave.  It appears that First Amendment Rights are no longer available to all.

If they are so disrespectful to their employers and fans they need to be replaced.  Time for the obnoxious ones to stand up and show some respect.
