Obama vs. JFK on taxes One of the hot-button political issues right now is the 2001/2003 tax cuts and the impact of letting them expire at the end of the year. Democrats have raised questions about the wisdom of sticking with the "economic policies of the past." And it's true - tax cuts are an economic policy from the past, but not in the way you might think. It turns out there's actually a debate between Democratic presidents about just what these tax cuts mean for the economy...and in less than two minutes, this video highlights that debate.

Income Tax vs. Consumption Tax ... I stand corrected -- Honk Kong first imposed an income tax in 1947.

More Taxes or More Jobs? California Shows We Can't Have Both It's hard to find a politician who isn't eager to "do something" about high unemployment. Turns out California has found one way to save and create certain kinds of jobs—spend like mad and raise taxes. That job-creation strategy has worked quite well for government-sector workers. Problem is the statewide unemployment rate is still among the highest in the nation, and many private-sector employers are heading to states like Texas, where taxes are lower and regulations are lighter. "I would love to have companies calling me saying, 'We'd like to move to California, can you help us with that relocation?' I get none of those calls," says business relocation coach Joe Vranich. "The calls I do get are, 'Hello, we want to move out of California, can you help us do that?'" Vranich says there's no one reason why businesses leave. He calls it "death by a thousand cuts," where job creators get fed up with everything from high taxes to traffic gridlock and legal hassles. Take Rick and Jack Newcombe, the father-son team that runs Creators Syndicate. A long legal battle with the city of Los Angles might end up being their company's final cut. The Newcombes say the city arbitrarily stuck the company into a higher tax category and officials are applying the hike retroactively. City officials are demanding $400000 in back taxes, but Rick Newcombe calls the whole episode "legalized theft," adding that a tax penalty of that size would force the company to lay off 10 employees. It's ironic ...
Corporate Tax Cut BS Exposed New TYT Network channels: New TYT Facebook Page(!): Follow us on Twitter: ***: FREE Movies(!): Note: The above two links are for TYT sponsors. Read Ana's blog and subscribe at: TYT Network (new WTF?! channel): Check Out TYT Interviews Despite a decade of Bush tax cut windfalls for the wealthy pushing income inequality to levels not seen since 1929, Republicans are calling for another $700 billion, 10-year payday for the richest Americans. So it should come as no surprise that as corporate profits reached an all-time record in the third quarter, leading voices in the Republican Party want their tax bill slashed, too. As the New York Times reported Tuesday, happy days are indeed here again for corporate America "American businesses earned profits at an annual rate of $1.659 trillion in the third quarter, according to a Commerce Department report released Tuesday. That is the highest figure recorded since the government began keeping track over 60 years ago, at least in nominal or noninflation-adjusted terms." Those numbers should be taken with a grain of salt. Having slashed costs and reaped the benefits of big productivity gains at this early stage of the recovery, US firms are sitting on a mountain of cash. But even expressed as a percentage of American gross domestic product, corporate profits are ...

Paying income tax in America is Voluntary When you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull***. Idiot Harry Reid maintains that paying income tax is voluntary in the US.

Federal Income Tax - Why you should not pay This clip comes from Aaron Russo's film, America: Freedom to Fascism. You can watch the film online @ Please learn the truth behind the income tax: it was created with the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 - its purpose being to fund the government to pay the interest incurred on government loans from the (private) Federal Reserve. In other words, the income tax is paid to central bankers, and have no gains to you whatsoever. Learn about how international bankers (such as the Rothschild's and Rockefeller's) have come to dominate the world through the control of financial systems, via their ownership of central banking institutions. But that's only the beginning... We have become their slaves, and they desire to form a world-government that will control us all under their supreme authority. And knowing the truth is the only thing that can set us free. MARCH ON WASHINGTON! April 15th, 2008 PROTEST THE INCOME TAX AT YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE! So long as there is a central bank, you will never be free or prosperous.

UPDATE: Woman in Video confronting the CNN Reporter has posted a response on why she did it: "I am the woman scolding the reporter in the video for her ridiculous confrontation with the protesters, and her biased reporting. Something that all of us conservatives must remember is that the left-wing media will do whatever it takes to marginalize us, degrade us, and disenfranchise us. Although I didn't know that a blogger was videotaping the whole thing, I am glad that he did. I'm also glad that this video has gained so much exposure on Fox and the internet. All of us conservatives must continue to educate ourselves on the media lies and distortions, and we MUST stay informed on what the government is doing to us. When our liberal friends and relatives accuse us once again that we didn't complain when Bush was overspending and piling up debt, we must answer them. I routinely remind liberals that the Obama administration isn't just doing what Bush did, he's quadrupling what Bush did! I didn't agree with the debt we were ...
stop paying taxes legally The American paradox", firstly it has nothing to do with America as a country of individual people who for the most part live their lives as best they can. So for those who think I may be "bashing" Americans, I am not, nor do I have any animosity against any race of peoples, Jews, Muslims, Arabs or whom ever. As the joke goes, " my animosity knows no bounds". Seriously though, the problem is we need to look at the world now as a question of those "in the know" and those "not in the know". Those that run everything, and those that follow. Looking at the history of humankind, there has always been the "ruling class, and the slaves". We for the most part, you and I and 99% of the rest of the world are the slaves. As the late, great George Carlin said, "we are not in their club and they don't give a *** about us". The American Paradox can be likened to the greek myth of King Midas. It is a society that wants for nothing, that purports that all are equal and that there is abundance for all, and yet has the highest percentage of obese and malnourished people and poorly educated children pro-rata in the world. With all the benefits that a society can offer, the system that runs america ( I have heard it called the corporate military pharmaceutical monolith) indoctrinates its own kind of mind control over the sick and poor masses. Looking at "americas" paradoxes, it is easy to see the peculiarities. A system that offers millions of ways to keep people looking young, and yet does ...
