POLITICAL: Sebelius is off the reservation


Government ‘It Is Not, Per Se, a Tax’: Sebelius Contradicts Administration’s Legal Defense of Obamacare
Posted on February 28, 2012 at 8:23pm by Mytheos Holt

In a stunning video from a hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee today, Kathleen Sebelius contradicted the Obama administration Department of Justice’s official stance on the individual mandate by denying that the mandate was a tax.

POLITICAL: Stossel balances the budget


My plan to balance the budget
John Stossel: ‘We’re on the way to becoming Greece – while our ‘leaders’ stand and watch’

*** begin quote ***

The military is about a fifth of the budget. I want to support our troops, but we could do that and save money if the administration would shrink the military’s mission to what it is supposed to be: protecting us from external threats. We cannot put America on a road to solvency without cutting military spending, too.

Of course, what will really bankrupt America are entitlements, especially Medicare. That’s the big one.
Why even call it an entitlement? Are we entitled to the money? People think we are, but the money is taken from the taxpayers – by force. The program is totally unsustainable. We now live so long that most of us get back about three times what we paid into these programs.

So we have to raise the retirement age, maybe index it to life spans, and turn Medicare into an insurance plan that sustains itself. That will mean that if I want the latest in high-end medicine, I have to pay for it myself.

We’re on the way to becoming Greece – while our “leaders” stand and watch. A catastrophe is happening before our eyes, but the politicians won’t act to avert it. How did they ever end up with enough power to sink our society?

Six minutes of Q&A and holding.



Then the lady wants my computer password.


And, she’s upset when it’s a 24 character random string.

(What stupidity is this? Why should I share my shared secret with another human being? I’d have never permitted it when I was their VP Info Sec.)

Lots of checking.

I’m getting a double check in March.

GAMBLING: Video Lottery Terminals not emulating a physical deck of cards


Do VLTs Emulate Playing with Real Decks of Cards?
14 September 2011
By John Robison

*** begin quote ***

VLTs (Video Lottery Terminals) do not emulate playing with a physical deck of cards. A central computer system tells your machine (terminal) what the result of your spin or hand will be, and your machine will do whatever it has to do to give you that result.

Strategies are useless on these video poker machines because they don’t deal from fair decks and because the outcome of your hand has already been determined. Suppose the central system has determined that you should win the value of a full house. The machine may deal you a full house. You can discard the full house and the machine may either deal you another one, or it will deal you a garbage hand and a wizard will appear and award you the value of a full house. Whatever it takes, the machine will give you the value of a full house.

JOBSEARCH: The “work till you drop” meme in employment


For boomers, it’s a new era of ‘work til you drop’
By JOHN ROGERS | Associated Press

*** begin quote ***

Forty years into that run, the 60-year-old communications specialist for a Wisconsin-based insurance company has worked more than a half-dozen jobs. She’s been laid off, downsized and seen the pension disappear with only a few thousand dollars accrued when it was frozen.

So, five years from the age when people once retired, she laughs when she describes her future plans.

“I’ll probably just work until I drop,” she says, a sentiment expressed, with varying degrees of humor, by numerous members of her age group.

Like 78 million other U.S. Baby Boomers, Symons and her husband had the misfortune of approaching retirement age at a time when stock market crashes diminished their 401(k) nest eggs, companies began eliminating defined benefit pensions in record numbers and previously unimagined technical advances all but eliminated entire job descriptions from travel agent to telephone operator.

*** and ***

“My advice is above all don’t retire,” he says. “If you like your job at all, hold onto it. Because getting back in in this era is essentially impossible.”

*** end quote ***

“Jobs” is not a zero sum game. But it is an obsolete meme.

The “gold watch” meme was obsoleted in the early Eighties.

The first torpedo a midship was the ERISA rule that did 5 year pension vesting. We then became a nation of five year employees. “Pension harvesters”. I got two.

The second was the entrepreneurial meme that came into place big time in the late Eighties with the updated Sub S corporation rules.

When job requiring obsolete skills go unfilled because business can’t find anyone qualified at a price they could afford to pay, how is an old person taking it depriving someone younger person?

If anything, it’s “good” that boomers are clogging those old “jobs”. Like making buggie whips. This may induce youngsters to recognize the new meme and open their own biz. Growing the pool of “jobs”.

The pie isn’t a fixed size. We should want the yutes out creating new wealth; not laboring in dead end corporations.

MEMORIES: Letter to God concerning Toots

(Inspired by a child’s FACEBOOK post.)

Dear God,

Will you please take care of my wife?

She died year ago today. And I expect is either with you in heaven or patiently waiting her turn for admission. Little confused about that Purgatory thing, and since she suffered a lot during her life, I figure she paid for any venial sins a long time ago. Based on what I know of her life, I don’t think she had any mortal ones on her permanent record. Don’t forget from her twenties on she never had a good day with her diabetes. Childness was another heavy cross she bore without complaint. And, in the last years, the strange blood disorder that she allow the “medicine men” to experiment on her was the final one. Never heard her complain. Although at the end she was impatient to be released from this vale of tears.

I miss her very much.

I am happy that you let me have her as my wife even though she got sick. She was the best thing that ever happened to me. And, she made me a better person.

I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls — especially catch with little boys, bowling before her legs gave out, and her beloved basketball. Of course, if you have a few slot machines, that would keep her entertained for hours. She can show you her “Irish luck”.

I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my wife. By the way, thanks for giving her that fantastic day January 21, 2011. She felt great; not perfect but pretty near the old Ev of her youth.

I really miss her.

Dona Nobis Pacem

With apologies to a young girl named Meredith who gave me this idea.

I’ve always believed that after a year, one has to grant oneself “amnesty” and move on. I’ve tried to do that after seeing my relatives literally drive themselves nuts with regrets. Today marks a year. I hope that tomorrow the healing begins. Although I doubt it.

Love ya, toots!

(To which she’d always reply “Don’t call me toots!”. Wish I could hear that one more time.)

POLITICAL: MYOB as a foreign policy


Who Commissioned Us to Remake the World?
by Patrick J. Buchanan

*** begin quote ***

We believe in freedom of speech and the press.

Yet, in France, if you deny the Turks committed genocide against the Armenians in 1915, you are guilty of a crime, while in Turkey if you affirm that the Turks committed genocide, you have committed a crime. Should U.S. diplomats battle for repeal of both laws? Or mind our own business?

If America wishes to lead the world, let us do it by example, as we once did, not by hectoring every nation on earth to adopt the American way, which as of now, does not seem to be working all that well for Americans.

McFaul should stick to his diplomatic duties.

Jefferson had it right, “We wish not to meddle with the internal affairs of any country.”

*** end quote ***

Seems pretty simple?

As Ron Paul said in the debates that “we” do to others what “we” wouldn’t like done to us.

No humility in our dealings with other countries.

When “we” get all our problems fixed here, “we” should still refrain from commenting on policies in other countries.

If they want to handicap themselves, that’s their business.

*** begin quote ***

In 2012, a ticker tape parade in New York City is reserved for a Super Bowl team while those who served in Iraq from 2003 to 2011 get a collective “thanks,” at best. A serviceman from New Jersey who gave all he had dying this year gets his parents or wife a flag from his coffin, while this week a flag at “half staff” is reserved for a famous singer from the same state simply because she gave us great music.  Should the same be done for Jon Bon Jovi or Bruce Springsteen when they pass? Should they be granted the same honors as our brave men and women who gallantly fight for our freedoms?

Basketball, baseball, football players, actors, and singers all receive financial and other rewards beyond most people’s wildest dreams and are all too often mislabeled in terminology  and public adoration as “heroes.”

Now when I go to the bank she asks how “dp” is. I say: “Fine”.

POLITICAL: Morris on the Income Tax


By Dick Morris

*** begin quote ***

In this video History commentary, I discuss how income tax came to be, how tax cuts grew the economy, and how tax hikes hurt it.

*** end quote ***

The Stock Market Crash was due to the Smoot Hawley Tariff being passed in Congress.

That was the straw.

The FED and the politicians further made things worse by raising the interest rate and the tax rate.

The Dead Old White Guys had it right — tariffs and excise taxes.

That would have saved our manufacturing base or at least not allowed the export of jobs and the import of “stuff” minus the cost of our social welfare programs.

They’ve demonstrated that we don’t understand the impact of changing things. Especially when those things being changed are large complex economic systems with lost of moving parts.

Capitalism with economic freedom and personal liberty have lifted us out of poverty. We need to insist on that going forward. The economy and the political order is too complex for humans to “tinker with”. Especially when those humans attempting to “run” it are so corrupt and corruptible.

MONEY: Roth IRA Conversions are problematic?


February 13, 2012
Roth may become more compelling planning option

*** begin quote ***

If the current proposal before congress to eliminate the stretch IRA provisions from the tax code go into effect, it presents an even more compelling reason to convert traditional IRA’s into Roth IRA’s.  While most people are reluctant to pay taxes now on a tax deferred account, the ability to pay taxes now under current rates, rather than under future rates which are likely to be higher.  Now with the potential loss of the ability of beneficiaries to stretch withdrawals when they inherit, thereby paying the taxes on the account within 5 years of their inheritance, the case for the Roth becomes more compelling.

*** and ***

Their growth and distributions would be tax free – unless, of course, congress eliminated the tax free character of the Roth IRA.  But they would never break a promise like that (unless, of course, you count their original promise not to tax social security benefits).

*** end quote ***

Wow, even more cynical people.

Converting to Roth now ENSURES that a tax is to be paid. Waiting MAY cause a higher tax to be paid.

What’s the time value of money in a zero interest rate environment?

That argues BOTH ways.

* Since money today has ZERO value, why not pay the tax (i.e., there is no better use of the funds; the NPV of the tax loss in the future is huge; confiscation of IRA / 401Ks for the “enhanced socsec benefit)?

* Since money today has zero value, why not try to convert it into something that will become valuable (i.e., real estate; gold; dividend paying growth stock)?

Pretty good argue with myself and lose twice.

POLITICAL: Lessig’s One Way Forward


Lessig’s One Way Forward
by Cory Doctorow at 6:41 am Tuesday, Feb 21

*** begin quote ***

Lawrence Lessig’s new ebook One Way Forward is one of the most exciting documents I’ve read since I first found The Federalist Papers. One Way Forward is more of a long pamphlet than a book. It’s tempting to call it a “manifesto,” except that it’s so darned reasonable, and that’s not a word that comes readily to mind when one hears “manifesto.”

At the core of Lessig’s reasonable manifesto is the corrupting influence of money in politics, a corruption that predates the notorious Citizens United Supreme Court case. Lessig ascribes to this corruption the outrage that mobilizes both Occupy and the Tea Party, and he believes that the corruption can’t be ended until both the left and right realize that though they don’t have a common goal, they do share a common enemy, and unite to defeat it.

To this end, Lessig has a series of extremely practical suggestions, legislative proposals that, individually, strike at the root of the corruption, and, collectively, could kill it. Most of these don’t require any kind of constitutional amendment. All are designed to be passed through the nonpartisan action of activists of all political stripes, working together on ideals that neither should find fundamentally objectionable.

*** end quote ***

Lessig is a known forward thinker.

Cory Doctorow is another thought leader.

So why can’t us little people drain the swamp?

RANT: Triple the tax


Obama’s Dividend Assault
A plan to triple the tax rate would hurt all shareholders.

*** begin quote ***

President Obama’s 2013 budget is the gift that keeps on giving—to government. One buried surprise is his proposal to triple the tax rate on corporate dividends, which believe it or not is higher than in his previous budgets.

Mr. Obama is proposing to raise the dividend tax rate to the higher personal income tax rate of 39.6% that will kick in next year. Add in the planned phase-out of deductions and exemptions, and the rate hits 41%. Then add the 3.8% investment tax surcharge in ObamaCare, and the new dividend tax rate in 2013 would be 44.8%—nearly three times today’s 15% rate.

Keep in mind that dividends are paid to shareholders only after the corporation pays taxes on its profits. So assuming a maximum 35% corporate tax rate and a 44.8% dividend tax, the total tax on corporate earnings passed through as dividends would be 64.1%.

*** end quote ***

So instead of reducing the corporate tax and the dividend tax, BHO44 is increasing it.

How stupid!

This election will be critical.

Reelect and we are so <synonym for the past tense of the procreation act.> Even the worst R, won’t follow through on these tax increases.

Why should a corporation be an “American” company?

RANT: Child support – pro and con

Posted by Jere Beery
Exposing the Child Support Myth

*** begin quote ***

Last weekend I was standing in the checkout line at our local Wal-Mart when I overheard a conversation between the cashier and a customer. The two women obviously knew one another and began talking like they were very good friends. The Cashier asked the customer if they were going to the Jason Aldean concert that upcoming weekend. The customer replied that they had just received “their” child support check and that “they” were going to use that money to purchase the tickets, get their hair done, and pay for a sitter. This conversation got me to thinking, how much of child support payments truely directly benefit the child?

*** end quote ***

Mixed reaction to this.

On the one hand, the cited anecdote is terrible. But the other side of the coin, seeing abandoned broke families deserted by the fathers living in shelters, makes me wonder.

The Gooferment is a big problem in this whole area.

They give the women support orders that are unenforceable. I’d have the Gooferment give the money to the spouse with the children regardless of sex and take upon itself the need to collect it. Think the IRS going after “child support”.

It’s like the Gooferment’s Courts giving battered spouses an “order of protection”. Worthless. Give them a gun and “hunting license” (i.e., if they defend themselves, they are presumed innocent).

Private charity is better than Gooferment welfare. More intelligent. More flexible.
