Just seen on drudge link that they are putting GPS devices in LAUNDRY DETERGENT to track it to its purchaser location. The link does not connect at drudge as the site must be swamped.
this has always been debatable wether lower taxes increase tax revenue. Now consider if they keep current tax rates as they are. They are projected to go up in Janurary so every week wage earners will be paying more in taxes leaving them less money. That is money out of circulation by everyone who earns money. That goes to the treasury to be spent on what they choose. If you let the population keep the money they will be spending it on everything that you can use money for. When the population spends money it is generaly on consumer goods, Investments, or banked localy to be lent localy generaly. When money changes hands to another person as wages it is taxed again. If loaned by banks localy it is spent for whatever. Money generaly changes hands 48 times a year and generaly taxed about 48 times a year. This would increase tax revenue in my opinion.
If the tax increases go into effect in Jan lets see if tax revenue increases.
By the way. Since I have quit smoking the gov't has about $2,000.00 in less tobacco tax from me.
Check out the links on the left. Good reading in there on employment. Seems like something has changed since these articles were written regarding maintaing employment levels. I know we import a lot of good now but something has happened in employment opportunities. Especialy the range of wages. Many have increased and many have not incresed all that much.
You should read this article. You think of a jobs bill and we think of job creation. Which it may do in a very small way. But the gov't is going to purchase stock in small banks. You know what that means.
Find other articles on the net and you will find pork in the bill.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
July 15, 2010
H. R. 5741
To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.
Can you believe this? They all jumping on B P like they was in on the Lockerbe bombers release.
Then the white house has the gall to say they wanted all the facts in his release. Like they did not know a d*** thing about it.
And the Politicians that set up investigative hearings thought they were snubbed by British politicians when you know who already knew about the details of the release. Could it be the white house told the politicians to snub the investigation.
A good read. Know how your rights could be affected.
It has started already. They are fighting it out tooth and nail on this comment board.
Keep up the liberal fight I think the title of the article is.
"They also worry that retailers will be able to scan customers who carry new types of personal ID cards as they walk through a store, without their knowledge. Several states, including Washington and New York, have begun issuing enhanced driver's licenses that contain radio- frequency tags with unique ID numbers, to make border crossings easier for frequent travelers. Some privacy advocates contend that retailers could theoretically scan people with such licenses as they make purchases"
for a civilian military force??????????????????????
Employment for soldiers of fortune.
Pass the bill. We will find out what is in it after.
I was sitting at the bird cage having my daily visit with my kokatiel before he went to bed the other night. While visiting I was reading the newspaper on the floor of the cage. It had the weekly grocery store page on the floor so I was reading that to see what appealed to me. I came across an item that said tribe hummus. Now I said to "I" what the hell is that. I never heard of it before. With the word hummus I thought it was something they dug up in the peat bogs or somewhere and prepared food out of it. I was thinking it had to be something like ground bog moss. I said to "I"( "I" is not the name of the bird. "I" is my space alien friend.) anyhow I said to "I" that stuff must taste like day old road kill.
Well I sat down at the computer to catch up on the news and lottery results but decided to do a search and find out what the hell that stuff is. Sure enough it popped up and told me what it is. A middle eastern bean dish and how it is prepared. When has that dish become popular to sell in the market?
I like bean dishes but never had that one.
This could have a gagging effect on posting politically opposing views.
The page is very slow at this site. You may not get the page at all. May be getting a lot of hits as Drudge has it up too.
"Words matter - listen carefully to our current administration
"Since the initially strong language on religious freedom used in President Obama's Cairo speech, presidential references to religious freedom have become rare, often replaced, at most, with references to freedom of worship. A purposeful change in language could mean a much narrower view of the right to religious freedom. "
Do you still believe what he says?
The I R S is going to be in this health care big time
All this is coming out before the mid term elections. If the conservatives do not jump on this they are plain illiterate.
The news media looks like it may be busy this week.
OBAMA NOW DEFENDS HEALTH INSURANCE MANDATE AS A TAX... DEVELOPING...
I wonder how much of a rectal cavity Stupak feels like now.
Not exactly a newbie caucus but a caucus for the members that have tea party agenda leanings. I would think the tea party would be considered new.
I was just thinking reading todays news about campaign funds each candidate has gotten. If they are going to have campaign reform it should not matter how much each candidate has raised. But. The candidate who raises a lot of cash swamps t v and print media with a lot of ads which influences a lot of people.
My thought is each candidate should have equal time on t v and print ads.
Money buys votes
Something does not smell right in D C. In the past week there have been quite a few stories on the dems losing it. President Obama suddenly having stories written about sudden drops in the polls for this and that. The house and possibly the senate races that are going to be lost in the fall. The house and the white house kickin the ball back and forth on losing. Plus many other articles.
Been dominating the news lately. I wonder if this is all planned strategy on their part? Mid term elections generaly have a slow voter turnout. Could this be part of the plan to rouse the democratic and liberal voters for turnout?
I see talk if the republicans win the house it will be a blame game on them on policy failures.
Just seen an article where the white house and staff members are going to be out stumpin for their candidates. That may help them lose. LOL
Something aint right. Take another week or so to see how the news changes on the subject. I think they have something planned here.
Need to get and read that book on "Rules For Radicals". The strategy could be in there.
From reading the news as to what is happening in the white house recently I am getting indicators. What I see is former Pres Clinton hanging out in the white house. Looks to me like he may be giving Pres Obama some tuteledge.
I see today that a former Clinton person is taking a position in the white house.
H.R.5002 -- No Sanctuary for Illegals Act
This looks like a very interesting part of the bill to ponder.
SEC. 8. PROHIBITION ON DISTRIBUTION OF FEDERAL FUNDS.
(a) In General- No officer or employee of the Federal Government may provide Federal funds to any State, or political subdivision of a State, that is determined by the Secretary to be interfering with efforts to enforce Federal immigration laws.
(b) Termination of Funding Prohibition- Subsection (a) shall cease to be effective with respect to a State or political subdivision denied funds under such subsection when the Secretary certifies that the State or political subdivision has entered into an agreement with the Secretary to cease such interference.
Looks like a law to clarify the citizenship of children born in the United States. The bill spells it out when you go to site and read it. Only one page too.
Has something like 96 sponsors. Need to move this bill along and get this issue settled.
Looks like it is still in committee. HMMMMMMM
Took me and "I" sometime to find it but here it is. Finaly figured out key words for search to find it. Had to have "I" figure it out. You all know who "I" is.
Looks like this may be the answer on how a bill becomes law without the presidents signature.
"2.Allow the bill to become law without his signature. If the President does not sign the bill or veto it within ten days, the bill becomes law without his signature. "
undistributed profits tax got eliminated without the presidents signature. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,761408-1,00.html
Rationale of the undistributed profits tax
they have been arguing about taxes, spending and the size of gov't for ages.
Heres some articles I found
The same thing is happening today. Read about the revenue act of 1935 and about employers and investors were under attack. also putting their money at risk.
The news article was talking about a lame duck session and I seen this about state voter registration laws. Looks like a takeover of state rights to me. If you think defunding a program will stall it think again about that with legislation they want to cram thru before Janurary.
"Other lame-duck possibilities? Senate ratification of the New Start nuclear treaty, a federally mandated universal voter registration system to override state laws, and a budget resolution to lock in increased agency spending"
I looked up my thoughts in regard to recess appointments here.
I was thinking today on what constitutes a recess in the senate. My thinking is that during a session of congress they have vacation recesses which are intrasession recesses (during a recess within a session). Then I was thinking They have a recess from the current session until the next session starts which is an intersession recess (between sessions or Congresses).
Then my thoughts went to why was this in the constitution. I was thinking that the senate did not have the work load during those early years and took longer intersession recess. I found that to be correct on my thinking.
" intersession recesses during the early days of the country lasted between six and nine months,"
Then my thoughts went to with the senate having a full schedule pretty much all 12 months of the year why is it necessary for any president to make recess appointments. I do not think recesses last much longer than 30 days now.
My conclusion is the supreme court should make a decision on this as recess appointments are being abused by presidents. Recesses are not as long now as to when the constitution was written.
For the senate to block a president from making recess appointments they hold pro forma sessions. Of course the dems are in the white house and Reid (D) heads the senate so you are not going to see pro forma sessions.
Now if the republicans take control of the senate for the 2011 session they could hold pro forma sessions to block recess appointments.
She explains how the Obama campaign controlled the spin and "worked" the Mainstream Media. Whoever controls the media controls the masses and the spin like true totalitarians.
Now read the article by Mr Sowell which I posted in an earlier entry if you have not already read it.
Have a happy independence day
I was reading the document and I did not know under article 11 canada could be a part of the U S if they chose to join.
another news article on that.
There just might be more Tea Party groups than whats reported on. Quite possibly a large network that keeps in touch with each other.
Citizens concerned for the future of this nation. The last I knew Gov't was for the people and by the people.
I think the opposition gets their panties in a bunch because of the loosely knit organization of the Tea Party.
Liberal attack policy is to identify and attack leaders of a group and the main political party involved.
Look at what they do to the Republican party. Attack its leaders and their policy.
