The Poorest Will Always Pay the Most in Taxes


The harsh truth is: if your poor or middle class, you will pay the most in taxes. Even though you pay a small amount, your still paying taxes and can’t avoid it.

How does this happen?

Every time a political candidate or even a clueless person screams: “Tax the evil corporations!” The corporations say: “go ahead and raise our taxes, we don’t care.” So why don’t they care?

Corporations and businesses don’t pay taxes. Taxes are classified as a business expense. They add their taxes to the cost of the item you buy. In short, you (the buyer) pay their taxes.

Same with the richest of the rich. They don’t really pay taxes. Yes, they write a check like everybody else does and they take the amount they just paid and add it to their services. The cost is handed down the line. Which means the middle class and poor pay for it.

Then there is the “hidden tax.” Which are taxes put on items at some level of making the product that (you guess it) the middle class and poor pay for. Like gasoline. There are taxes added to the import of oil, the production of oil to gasoline, the equipment and ingredients to make the gasoline and all of those taxes are added to the price you pay at the pump. Did you ever wonder why gas was less than a dollar back in the 60’s but now it never falls below $2 a gallon?

Taxation will never be “fair” for anybody. It’s a mathematical formula that just doesn’t work. History tells us it doesn’t work because just about every year the government changes it. If it worked, why change it? Remember they’re always tell us “the change is for the good” but the middle class and poor still pay for it. Always have, always will.

Andrew Gillum Uphill Race


Andrew Gillum has an uphill battle to win the governorship of Florida. His socialist agenda will not go over well with Florida voters in a time when they are recovering from a national recession. He did win the democratic youth vote from colleges and it was enough to give him the win but if that all he get’s, he’ll lose to DeSantis. Which when you look at who turnout to vote, republicans almost doubled the vote of democrats in the primary election. Why? The democrat base is not motivated.

Gillum has more than his campaign platform to defend. There is little movement in the democrat party. Nobody they can get behind to support. Sure they have Bernie, but he’s only good for college student votes (which he got for Gillum for the win) and nobody else. Plus we shouldn’t forget that Gillum is involved in a FBI investigation. Which does put a bad taste in people’s mouths.

Hollywood socialist are dumping money in to his campaign but they do not have the big name pullers to create a movement. All of the states large political big seats are controlled by republicans. Which leave Gillum with little choice but to encourage the democrat base to help him and I’m not seeing that happening.

Gwen Gram was the appointee to the seat but Gillum won and that didn’t make the DNC very happy. Nelson will try to pull some of Gillum supporters for his campaign but he has been polling poorly and may hurt Gillum’s platform.

Then we have the super weapon of the republicans. President Trump. His approval numbers are good, lowest recorded unemployment numbers, lowered taxes, economy growing. Has proven that when he endorses a candidate, little alone campaigns for that candidate they win.

The big test in Trumps campaigning power will be in Texas. Where Cruz is in a close race with Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke by just a percentage point in an Emerson College poll. You see Cruz lost his “wow” factor when he talked bad against Trump and this poll has him worried.

With Gillum on the defensive from minute one of this race, I really don’t see a win for him. You can’t create a movement when your defending your actions and words. Sure liberals in social media world will try to place guilt feelings on the voter but people are getting tired of that game move. This is what DeSantis people will try to do. Keep him in defense mode.

Florida Primary Election is a Reflection of the People


Need an idea of what is happening in the Florida election? All you have to do is watch voter turnout.

People who are not motivated will simply not vote. That’s what is happening in the early election cycle in Florida. There has been more Republican votes cast than Democrat. Grant it, it could change on Tuesday. But I don’t really see that happening.

So whats happen? You have a President who has made promises and has more or less kept to his promises. More jobs than people to hire, lower taxes, more pay. What slogan are the Democrats running on? We hate the President, the President is wrong, impeach the President?

This doesn’t work on the voter who is having a positive return. Who’s going to vote to end their own prosperity?

This President took the good old boy play book of the Republicans and threw it out the window. He created a new book that is working, for the people. People do support him, they like the results he’s giving. And it has caused the Democrats a headache because they have no counter plan for it.

How do you counter a positive growth? Democrats don’t want to publicly support him so the only option they have is to counter him. Which they haven’t done. I have seen nothing that resonates with the voter from the Democrat side.

The only problem I have seen with the Republican base is: which candidate is more like the President? Who will work with him to create more prosperity for the voter?

If you think this primary election is nerve recking, your right. But if the Democrat turnout remains low at the end of the primary cycle, I can just about guarantee that the general election will go for all Republican candidates. Why? Voter will not vote against their own prosperity.

Are Your Gay Friends Liberal or Conservative

An article written by Adam Levine, a writer for the Federalist and the son of a Democratic congressman, claimed in an article this week that it was harder to come out as a Republican than it was to come out gay.

He writes:

“I am not a sex offender. But a number of my friends no longer have time to see me,” declared Levine in the article. “Lifelong acquaintances now regard me with fear and distrust. I have been unfriended en masse on social media and excoriated by friends who deign to remain. And I have been singly excluded from social gatherings when the rest of my family was invited.”

“No, I am not a sex offender. I am something even worse than that. I am a Donald Trump supporter,” he proclaimed. “I was raised in a liberal Jewish family in Washington DC, where my dad served as a Democratic congressman for Los Angeles. Accordingly, I was indoctrinated with all of the correct values and views.” Adam’s father, Mel Levine, served in Congress from 1983 to 1993.

Levine claimed that growing up, he “learned the black national anthem before I knew the ‘Star Spangled Banner’,” and when he “came out” as gay to his family at the age of 20, they “were duly overjoyed.”

When he came out as a Republican, however, his life quickly changed.

Which got me thinking. I have gay friends, but are they conservatives or liberal? After a few minutes of thinking I realized they are all conservative. Any liberal gay friends I had left me long ago when they knew my outlook on life or realized I wasn’t going to give them money because they had a heart beat.

I have a gay niece that the last time I talk to her months ago, the first question out of her mouth wasn’t “how have you been” but “I need money.” When I said “no,” that was it. I haven’t heard from her since.

I had straight friends that won’t talk to me because of my attitude towards any gay movement. I personally don’t care who you love in life, I think it’s great you have somebody in your life. But your not going to push your decision of what is right or wrong on me as my choice in life. If you do, I’ll fight back.

My heart goes out to Mr. Levine. As a straight conservative guy, I do understand what you are going through. Maybe people will someday understand what MLK meant when he said:

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Media Does It’s Best To Make People Stupid


Let’s be honest, very few people actually read a news story and the media is hoping you never read more than the title of a report.

With the media screaming stories like: sexual harassment, abuse or assault for weeks on end, it’s no wonder people are numb to the issue. But if you read these stories, you start to realize that these stories are way out on a limb.

Let’s look at any case that happen 40 years ago that a person is now claiming sexual harassment. How can you take their story seriously? Back 40 years ago we were in the “disco” stage. Girls wore “tube tops” and short, shorts. Where pretty much sex and drugs was ramped. Others wore lose fitting cloths that really didn’t leave much to the imagination. Where the common most question was: “what’s your zodiac sign?” By the way, this was normal and acceptable for the time period.

Republicans pass the large tax relief in modern history. The media and democrats are screaming that it will hurt the poor people and ruin the country. But if you look back in history, JFK and Reagan both did the same thing and we now honor these men as savors of the nation. All you have to do is a simple history fact finding to know this. By the way, why doesn’t the democrats or the media praise JFK achievements as a strong leader for the democratic party? They won’t even mention Ted Kennedy name anymore and he got shit done for 40+ years.

All I am saying is, with the current way most people get the news information from their smartphones, it’s really easy to place a false news clip in a title. Because the media does realize most people won’t read any further than the title.

So let’s do a simple test were both you and I can have a laugh or prove I’m a idiot. Let’s add a false phrase on this story and post it with the false phrase with the intent to make liberals have a nervous breakdown. Let’s see how many people fly off the handle over just what I said in a facebook post that didn’t even read this story. You can have fun too, just make a comment on just the facebook post and not this story.

Here’s the phrase:
“Liberals and college students have to be the most stupidest people that walk the earth to believe Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or the media. Because they are proven lyres.”

Sexual Harassment Stories, Are You Tired Of Them Yet?

The media is running sexual harassment stories as much as a crack addict uses drugs. To the point that we say “This is crazy, it can’t be that bad” and it’s not.

First lets look at the definition of Sexual Harassment:

Sexual harassment is bullying or coercion of a sexual nature, or the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors. In most modern legal contexts, sexual harassment is illegal. (Wikipedia)


Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that tends to create a hostile or offensive work environment. (Legal definition)


The one thing that both of these definitions shared is that sexual harassment is determined by the accuser. When and if it gets to court is when the accused has a say.

Not too fair. Why do we say “not to fair?” Because in America, you are innocent until proven guilty. Unless the media wants to make money on you and then, your guilty by public opinion.

So why is the media going crazy over these stories? The answer is really simple. They have nothing else to report. The media is a business that makes its money over your reactions of a situation. If you have no reaction, they make no money. Want the stories to end, ignore them.

So what do all of these stories do to society as a whole?

It really screws with societies head. Let’s look at the harsh truth. Hollywood and the entertainment community including the political realm is full of sex stories. Who doesn’t know this? Now you add people with normal lives that want some type of excitement and you have a story.

Another harsh truth. Most sexual harassment lawsuits never make it to court. Mainly for two reasons. The accused has no money to sue for or the accusations are fabricated. You see sexual harassment is a civil issue and the state only gets involved if a state law is broken.

Conclusion:

People need to realize that not everybody acts the same way everywhere in the world. And for you to expect proper english and manners from everybody, you yourself could be insulting others and not even realizing it.

Like: Hispanic folks are a very touchy, kissy group of people. If you’re a friend or family member, you are going to get kisses and hugs. By everybody. Don’t freak. It’s a complement.

People in the inner city cuss and tease a lot. It’s not meant to be mean, it’s just their vocabulary skills and how they show good intention to others. If somebody drops the “F” bomb every 3rd word, or teases you, calm down. Realize where you are. If they cuss in front of you in a normal conversation, they like you. It’s not sexual harassment.

Finally: If you wear clothing that is “eye candy” to others. Why are you shock that they responded in an aroused way? You wore the clothes to create a reaction. You got a reaction. Deal with it and if it’s a reaction you didn’t want, don’t wear the “eye candy.”
