RANT: The corporate tax should always be zero

*** begin quote ***

What about the politician who tells us that he’s not going to raise taxes on the middle class; instead, he’s going to raise corporate income taxes as means to get rich corporations to pay their rightful share of government? If a tax is levied on a corporation, and if it is to survive, it will have one of three responses, or some combination thereof. One response is to raise the price of its product, so who bears the burden? Another response is to lower dividends; again, who bears the burden? Yet another response is to lay off workers. In each case, it is people, not some legal fiction called a corporation, who bear the burden of the tax.

*** end quote ***

So the corporate tax rate should ALWAYS be zero. Anything higher and it’s the politicians trying to sheer the sheeple!

RANT: Why vote?

Thursday, October 28, 2010

William Lynch>FJohn Reinke: William asks: Will you join me in committing to vote? Join the Commit to Vote Challenge and inspire your friends to vote

William committed to vote by November 2nd. “I am voting as it is my responsibility as a citizen and I want to protect my interests. “

# – # – #

I’ll vote. Trying to protect everyone’s interests from an out-of-control Gooferment. A citizen exchanges loyalty for protection. The State, “King”, Gooferment, whatever you want to call this mess is NOT protecting me, the average joe six-pack, or the rest of the Sheeple. When you have no choice, it’s like voting in the old USSR. When you have no hope of change, why bother. So I understand staying-at-home. The American experiment is collapsing under the greed of the “Secular Progressive” leadership in both the D’s and the R’s. When the piggy bank is empty, we have to start over again. Argh! Vote, yes; chance that things will improve, zero. Best we can hope for is gridlock.

IPAD: Limited wifi ‘capabiity’

Thursday, October 28, 2010

The IPAD can not connect to the RWJUH wifi.

The RWJUH wifi is ‘available’ to patients and guests. But it has an ‘old style’ mickey mouse interface. It reminds me of the internet cafe system where you buy a User id and password for a few bob. (Sorry last time I bought inet access a la carte was in England. Before that in Biloxi, a life time ago. So bob it is.) And, you use that to authenticate to the network.

The RWJUH wifi splashes you a screen that makes you agree to be good, honor your Mum and Dad (that the English memory bubbling over), and a bunch of other stuff. Then it passes to the traditional uid and password challenge. If you don’t have an id, you can create one for free. It then spaws a small popup saying you’re logged on and “feel free to close this”. But if you do, you’re very quickly back a square one, the agreement page.

The uid and password stays active for awhile or until they wipe the database. That’s happened twice, with no rhyme, reason, or calendar schedule.

The RWJUH wifi “burps” a lot — there are even two type of burps. One, a stoppage where if on the McBa you stop and start you’r airport wifi, you pick up where you are and can keep on going. The other is a five minute, or what seems to be, time out and you start over from the splash.

So apparently, the IPDA can take the splash screen but it won’t allow the pop up after  uid / password. It makes no difference if you have the Safari web browser active or not.

That demonstrates that the IPAD’s wifi is substantively different from the McBa’s. Both machines are on the most current release of software.

Makes you wonder what else is different?
