GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Obama to Propose Tax Increases

WSJ: Obama to Propose Tax Increases on Investments, Inherited Property

President Barack Obama will call on the new Republican-led Congress to raise taxes on investments and inherited property and to create or expand a range of tax breaks for middle-income families, laying out an opening position in a debate over taxation that both parties see as a potential area of compromise.

Mr. Obama will outline the measures in his State of the Union address Tuesday night. He will propose using revenue generated from the tax increases–which would fall mainly on high-income households–to pay for a raft of new breaks aimed at boosting stagnant incomes for low- and middle-income households.

What an idiot!

Do you want less investments?

Do you want fewer family farms?

Do you want smaller inheritances? 

Tax something and you get less of it.

AND, the “fat cats” will still figure out loopholes.

Dumb, dumber, and dumbest.

Shrink the bloated Federal Gooferment.

Reduce taxes on EVERYONE!

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: WSJ NEWS ALERT: Justice Department Kept Secret Telephone Database

WSJ NEWS ALERT: Justice Department Kept Secret Telephone Database

Justice Department Kept Secret Telephone Database
The U.S. Justice Department secretly kept a database of U.S. calls to and from foreign countries for more than a decade, according to a new court filing and officials familiar with the program.

The revelation of another secret government database storing records of Americans’ calls came in a filing in the case of a man accused of conspiring to unlawfully export electronic goods to Iran. A Drug Enforcement Administration official said in the filing that the agency has long used administrative subpoenas, not federal court orders, to collect the metadata of U.S. calls to and from foreign countries “that were determined to have a demonstrated nexus to international drug trafficking and related criminal activities.”

The document doesn’t identify the countries or say how many countries were involved.

NJ Man Arrested for Refusing to Hand Over Camera as “Evidence” After Cop Veers Off Road
Posted by: Carlos Miller in January 10, 2015

*** begin quote ***

A New Jersey man was arrested Thursday after refusing to hand over his video camera to a cop, who insisted he needed it as “evidence,” even though case law makes it very clear that citizens do not have to give up their footage unless their camera was used in the commission of a crime.

You would think a detective from the prosecutor’s office would know better.

But then again, cops make up their own laws when trying to protect their own.

After all, the so-called evidence demanded by detective Dave Margentino from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office involved a fellow cop who had veered off the road in a single-car accident, needing to be airlifted to the hospital.

Andrew Flinchbaugh, 23, was video recording the aftermath of the accident, standing well out the way of police and rescue officials, recording the victim being loaded onto the copter as well as the copter taking off.

However, the teen refused treatment and her mother supported her daughter’s decision, causing Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families to step in and force the teen to receive treatment, WTIC-TV reports.

Fresh Doubt Over the Bailout of A.I.G.DEC. 20, 2014
By GRETCHEN MORGENSON

*** begin quote ***

Last week, Edward Kane, a finance professor at Boston College and an expert on financial regulatory failures, said, “We’ve learned so much from this case that everyone wanted to cover up.” Mr. Kane said that while he is not on Starr’s side in the litigation, the facts that it has surfaced are important for citizens to understand.

“These are the equivalent of storm troopers marching in and throwing their weight around and telling lies about it afterward,” he said. “The lawsuit is an effort to make these people accountable that has not been available through the political system.”

It’s clear to me that Goldman was pulling the strings from behind the scenes.

Bear Sterns, a Goldman competitor, was executed!

The FED and Treasury stampeded Congress into the rescue.

And as soon as the funds were voted, the “rules of engagement” were changed to benefit the Big Banks and Wall Street. AKA Goldman.

Argh!

And “We, The Sheeple” and the Taxpayers, as well as “Main Street” were financially “raped”!

And, Ms. Warren not withstanding, it continues to go on!

Argh!

As 2014 draws to a close, many people are thinking of tax planning strategies. Some might donate to charity, others might choose to pay state taxes early. One novel idea that has just been proposed on Capitol Hill would allow people to decide when to pay estate taxes.

Here’s a better idea. Eliminate the death tax entirely.

Since only “poor” people pay it!

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Utah’s Republican Crony Capitalism

Republican Crony Capitalism On Display Out West

*** begin quote ***

Utah’s traditional insurance brokerage community is none too pleased about having to compete with Zenefits. On November 20, Utah Insurance Commissioner Todd Kiser sent a letter to Zenefits, informing the company that it is violating Utah inducement and rebating laws because it offers its software for free. Kiser said the company should be assessed $5,000 for each violation and twice the profit generated per violation. Because of this, Zenefits would currently be on the hook for at $97,000 penalty.

Kiser told Zenefits that it could come into compliance with state law by raising prices and ceasing to advertise. Zenefits does not charge businesses for their software, but they generate a profit from commission paid by the insurance providers with which they connect their clients. Zenefits understandably does not wish to go along with Kiser’s orders. It’s worth noting that Commissioner Kiser was an insurance broker for 25 years prior to being elected to the state legislature. Kiser’s dictate, at the expense of small businesses, will protect brick-and-mortar brokerages like the one he used to run. He even said, in his own words, “the ease of using Zenefits” is part of the reason why he went after them.

“Crony capitalism is a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of state interventionism.”

Anyone, who thinks that EITHER political party is not corrupt, is naïve at best.

This is an example of why the USA isn’t “land of the free”.

You can’t compete if you don’t kowtow to the politicians and bureaucrats! 

At least, the Mafia protects you for your money!

Robbery is robbery reguardless of if you use the guns of Gooferment or your own.

Argh!
