Everyone concentrates on the problems we're having in Our Country lately: Illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida . . . .
Not me -- I concentrate on solutions for the problems -- it's a win-win situation.
* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees.
* Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.
Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?
Think about this:
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ...why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this -- you cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians, it creates a hostile work environment.
Hold on to your shorts folks....
The shit is about to hit the Fan....
Had enough "Change " Yet???
This means more deductions
and less take home $$.
This is very interesting reading. You may already know some of this, but it really opened my eyes to the magnitude. Read all the way to the end.
In just six months, the largest tax hikes in the history of America will take effect.
They will hit families and small businesses in three great waves on
January 1, 2011:
Expiration of 2001 and 2003 Tax Relief
In 2001 and 2003, the GOP Congress enacted several tax cuts for
investors, small business owners, and families.
These will all expire on January 1, 2011:
Personal income tax rates will rise. The top income tax rate will rise from 35 to
39.6 percent (this is also the rate at which two-thirds of small business profits are
taxed). The lowest rate will rise from 10 to 15 percent. All the rates in between will
also rise. Itemized deductions and personal exemptions will again phase out,
which has the same mathematical effect as higher marginal tax rates. The full list
of marginal rate hikes is below:
- The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15%
- The 25% bracket rises to 28%
- The 28% bracket rises to 31%
- The 33% bracket rises to 36%
- The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%
Higher taxes on marriage and family. The “marriage penalty” (narrower tax
brackets for married couples) will return from the first dollar of income. The child
tax credit will be cut in half from $1000 to $500 per child. The standard deduction
will no longer be doubled for married couples relative to the single level. The
dependent care and adoption tax credits will be cut.
The return of the Death Tax.
This year, there is no death tax. For those dying on or after January 1 2011, there is a 55 percent top death tax rate on estates over $1 million. A person leaving behind two homes and a retirement account could easily pass along a death tax bill to their loved ones.
Higher tax rates on savers and investors.
The capital gains tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 20 percent in 2011. The dividends tax will rise from 15 percent this year to 39.6 percent in 2011. These rates will rise another 3.8 percent in 2013.
Second Wave: Obamacare
There are over twenty new or higher taxes in Obamacare. Several will first go into
effect on January 1, 2011. They include:
The “Medicine Cabinet Tax”
Thanks to Obamacare, Americans will no longer be able to use health savings
account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA)
pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except
The “Special Needs Kids Tax”
This provision of Obamacare imposes a cap on flexible spending accounts (FSAs)
of $2500 (Currently, there is no federal government limit). There is one group of
FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents
of special needs children. There are thousands of families with special needs
children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs
education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children
in Washington , D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000
per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can not be used to pay for this type of
special needs education.
The HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike.
This provision of Obamacare increases the additional tax on non-medical early
withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to
IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent.
The Alternative Minimum Tax and Employer Tax Hikes
When Americans prepare to file their tax returns in January of 2011, they'll be in for
a nasty surprise—the AMT won't be held harmless, and many tax relief provisions
will have expired.
The major items include:
The AMT will ensnare over 28 million families, up from 4 million last year.
According to the left-leaning Tax Policy Center, Congress’ failure to index the AMT
will lead to an explosion of AMT taxpaying families—rising from 4 million last
year to 28.5 million. These families will have to calculate their tax burdens twice,
and pay taxes at the higher level. The AMT was created in 1969 to ensnare a
handful of taxpayers.
Small business expensing will be slashed and 50% expensing will disappear.
Small businesses can normally expense (rather than slowly-
deduct, or “depreciate”) equipment purchases up to $250,000. This
will be cut all the way down to $25,000. Larger businesses can
expense half of their purchases of equipment. In January of 2011,
all of it will have to be “depreciated.”
Taxes will be raised on all types of businesses.
There are literally scores of tax hikes on business that will take place. The biggest
is the loss of the “research and experimentation tax credit,” but there are many,
many others. Combining high marginal tax rates with the loss of this tax relief will
Tax Benefits for Education and Teaching Reduced.
The deduction for tuition and fees will not be available. Tax credits for education
will be limited. Teachers will no longer be able to deduct classroom
expenses. Coverdell Education Savings Accounts will be cut. Employer-
provided educational assistance is curtailed. The student loan interest deduction
will be disallowed for hundreds of thousands of families.
Charitable Contributions from IRAs no longer allowed.
Under current law, a retired person with an IRA can contribute up to
$100,000 per year directly to a charity from their IRA. This
contribution also counts toward an annual “required minimum
distribution.” This ability will no longer be there.

One of the surprises

"surprise" that 99% of us had no idea was included in the
"new and improved" healthcare legislation . . . the
dupes, er, dopes, who backed this administration will be
Starting in 2011, (next year folks), your W-2 tax form sent by
your employer will be increased to show the value of whatever
health insurance you are given by the company. It does not
matter if that's a private concern or governmental body of
some sort. If you're retired? So what; your gross
will go up by the amount of insurance you get.
You will be required to pay taxes on a large sum of money that you
have never seen. Take your tax form you just finished
and see what $15,000 or $20,000 additional gross does to your
tax debt. That's what you'll pay next year. For
many, it also puts you into a new higher bracket so it's even
This is how the government is going to buy insurance for the15% that don't
have insurance and it's only part of the tax increases.
Not believing this??? Here is a research of the
