Fair tax vs flat tax

Posted by admin     Category: Taxes

On this Independence day, a lot of United States citizens agree that we need to abolish the I.R.S. and replace our current tax system with something that is both fair for everyone and that can not be abused by any political party and targeted against any group or individual.

A lot of people do not understand the difference between a “Fair Tax” and a “Flat Tax” but it is pretty simple actually.

A Fair Tax (which I highly recommend, by the way) is simply a consumption tax or somewhat like a National Sales Tax. In essence, if you want to pay less taxes then purchase less products and services that are taxed. Hence, if Bill Gates wants to buy a $100,000,000.00 yacht, then he will pay a lot in taxes. If you decide to fore go buying a new car this year, then you will not pay taxes on the money that you would have spent on that car.

A Flat Tax us totally different. Basically, with a flat tax “they” pick a percentage, say 20%, and everyone pays that percentage of their gross income. Using the Bill Gates analogy, let’s say that he makes $1 Billion dollars, then he will pay $200 Million in taxes. Another man that makes $10,000 will only pay $2000 in taxes.

Come on people, let’s declare our Independence from Government abuse, political corruption, and our current unfair tax system…call your representative and tell them that you want a Fair tax and for the IRS to be abolished.

Military Coup in Egypt

Posted by admin     Category: Politics

This is interesting…the military has just ousted Morsi in Egypt. Morsi was the Muslim Brotherhood President that the United States President Obama actually supported.

I know that a lot of folks in the U.S. would like to see democratic elections in Egypt and in other countries in the Middle East. In an ideal world, that would be great. But in this world, the tribal nature of the people over there, coupled with the power that terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and Hamas and the like have, it is probably best they do not have democratic elections when the Military higher ups may be better suited to run the country.

My hope is that the Military in Egypt will actually run the country, be an ally to the United States and Israel, and an enemy to any and all terrorist groups.

Good luck Egypt.

Racial prejudice was involved in the Trayvon Martin death

Posted by admin     Category: Common Sense

I’ve been watching the murder trial of George Zimmerman and I have to say that it is a travesty that this poor man was arrested and brought to trial.

Had the news media not manipulated the 911 call trying to make it seem like Zimmerman was after Martin because he was black, I suspect that none of this would have happened.

It is blatantly obvious to anyone watching this trial that George Zimmerman was a man concerned about the frequency of thefts in his neighborhood. He saw someone acting suspiciously and called the police. His only intent that night was to give the police accurate information so that they could come and determine whether Trayvon Martin was up to no good or not.

Trayvon, however, was a racist. Apparently he did not trust, or like or respect, white people, his comment that he is being followed by a “Creepy ass cracker” proves that. Trayvon also was guilty of the bravado that a lot of young men suffer from, thinking that he was “all that.” That night, Trayvon was a bully and it got him killed. Not murdered, killed.

Zimmerman not only broke no laws, but actually was acting in the best interest of his community. If we all avert our eyes anytime we see someone doing anything out of the ordinary. If we all only await for the police to protect us. If we all are so scared of lawsuits and being improperly arrested for looking out for our own good, then our society will fail and the predators, druggies, murders, rapists, and theifs will have won.

Trayvon should have seen a man on the phone and realized that he, Trayvon, was probably raising some red flags by his actions. At that point, Trayvon should have just gone home. However, he chose the course that a lot of thugs choose…the “you ain’t got nothing on me” attitude and the “I can intimidate you, attack you, do whatever I want and ain’t nothing bad gonna happen to me” attitude. I don’t want to say it got him what he deserved, what he deserved was a good ass whooping but he was beating Zimmerman’s head into the concrete. At any time, Zimmerman’s skull could have cracked open like an egg shell and his brains leaked out. Trayvon should never have attacked and certainly should not have beaten that poor man’s head into the concrete. Trayvon, at that point, was trying to commit murder. And he paid for that with his life.

From Me to Felix *********:

From Me to Felix *********:

This is an automated out-of-office reply from Mike Partlow:

===================================

I made another email account as Dave the Janitor…

===================================

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Hi there! Is this Felix? Mike told me to contact you about buying a fish tank. I’m Dave, the janitor at Mike’s office. I tried calling the number he gave me but it sounded like a fax machine or something, so I am emailing you instead.

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

yeah hi dave here’s the situation. mike has no idea how phones work and tried to send a fax to my phone using the fax machine at his office. now my phone is getting a call from the fax machine every 15 minutes. he said you can cancel the fax?

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Mike didn’t mention anything about a fax machine to me. He told me to buy a fish tank from you and he’d get it from me on Monday.

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

oh jesus christ…no… he was supposed to tell you to cancel the fax that keeps calling my phone. are you at his office? can you stop the fax?

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

So you aren’t selling the fish tank?

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

look forget the fish tank just stop the fax machine, PLEASE!!

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Why are you so worried about this fax machine? Can’t you just turn your cell phone to fax mode?

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

that isnt a thing! look im done screwing around here. just stop the fax machine, ok?

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Tell you what, I’ll cancel the fax machine if you drop the price on the fish tank to $75.

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

look im in no mood to haggle with a janitor over a fucking fish tank.

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Excuse me? “with a janitor?” What is that supposed to mean? What if I had a fancy rich person job as an investment banker? Would you haggle with me then? I don’t like your condescending tone, buddy. I know being a janitor isn’t the most desirable job, but I gotta put food on the table for my kids somehow! Sorry I’m not an astronaut with a degree in brain surgery! You’re in no mood to argue with a janitor? Well guess what? I am in no mood to turn off fax machines for a rude, snobby, patronizing fish tank owner!

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

i didnt mean to insult you. i like janitors. im sorry! can you please just turn off the fax machine!

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Fine. But I am telling Mike what you said to me and I don’t think he will want to buy a fish tank from you after that. Are you this rude to your fish? Oh I’m Felix! Sorry, I’m in no mood to feed a goldfish! Maybe if you were a $500 Blueface Angel fish I would feed you.

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

……are you done?

From Dave the Janitor to Felix *********:

Yes, I stopped the fax. Sorry it took me so long to figure out how to cancel it. I’m just a janitor. What do I know about fax machines? I don’t have a fancy degree in fax machine engineering.

From Felix ********* to Dave the Janitor:

yeah yeah…. thats enough. thanks bye

===================================

A few days later, from my original email account…

===================================

From Me to Felix *********:

Felix,

I just got back from Canada to find out you were belittling my janitor? Dave is one of the best janitors I have ever had the pleasure of working with, so you better watch your mouth. You think you are better than him or something? Big words coming from a guy who doesn’t even own a fax machine. You can forget about me buying your fish tank!

Mike

From Felix ********* to Me:

good because im not selling anything to a stupid FUCK who cant even figure out how to dial a phone number!!!!!!!

From Me to Felix *********:

Please, stop harassing me and Dave. You’ve done enough. Leave us alone.

From Felix ********* to Me:

oh im harassing YOU? the dumbass who sets a fax to send me every 15 minutes and then LEAVES THE FUCKING COUNTRY? you know how many times that fax machine called me you stupid piece of shit you have the nerve to say IM harassing YOU? go fuck yourself you fucking fuckhead!!!!!!

From Me to Felix *********:
