White House rejects
Boehner’s tax deal

Washington Post, by Ezra Klein

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/14/2012 9:48:28 AM

The Obama administration’s target of $1.6 trillion in taxes isn’t anything new. It’s an update of the $1.5 trillion in taxes they’ve been proposing since 2011. A year has passed, which means the same policies — letting the Bush tax cuts expire for income over $250,000 and then limiting some deductions and loopholes for wealthier taxpayers (Snip) Here’s what is new: The White House is saying, clearly, that they won’t permit the top tax rates to remains where they are. They’re taking House Speaker John A. Boehner’s proposed deal and rejecting it.

Comments:
Yesterday Obit assembled a White House meeting with union leaders and a good-sized contingent of progressive community activists, leaders of the organizations like MoveOn and Center for American Progress (Soros), and other Alinskyite groups that favor redistribution of wealth, so he is hot to go. Fired up. His base is in place.

Obama will not budge...Boehner will fall like a house of cards and give him everything he wants then cry about it. The fix is in.

Vote on it, pass is an dput th eball in their court. The problem here is that people have failed to illustrate the tax rates. The more more income you make, the higher you generally pay. People blindly spout out "fair share". How cna one be paying their fair share when income A of $80,000 is taxed at a higher rate than income B of $35,000?

This is just what to expect from Obama and the class warfare brigade he assembled yesterday. None of them could explain the difference between marginal tax rates and effective tax rates. Increases in marginal rates never bring in the amount of revenue expected. Unfortunately it leads to an increase in lobbying the tax code to find new ways to shelter income.

I have a contrary personality. Let the whole house of cards collapse by passing a budget for the military only, and ignoring the rest of the government. Spending legislation is supposed to come from the House so the House can support defense and cripple everything else by doing what obama did in his earlier political career. Vote present and do nothing as much as possible. Put the government into bankruptcy now, not four years from now when things will be even worse.

Pass a bill that states that tax rates will stay as they are. A short bill, with no legalese. One that even the common man can understand. Short enough that you can read the whole thing in thirty seconds. Then when asked about various tax issues say, "We passed this bill, ´quote bill.´ the Democrats won´t pass it."

Obama: " Hey John, no go on your deal".
Boehner: " Ok Mr. President, we tried, thanks for listening, the people will get over it after awhile, they always do. What time do we tee off?".

Obama voters don´t care. The great majority of them (those who are not dead) don´t pay taxes anyway.

Either keep the rates the same, or get rid of the Bush tax cuts for EVERYONE. That´s my take on it.

The right thing to do is let ALL the Bush tax cuts expire. We do need revenue. We are literally drowning in debt. Everyone needs to be a part of the solution. There simply aren´t enough rich people to solve this.

It´s time for the GOP to lead on the issue of fiscal responsiblity.

Call traced to co-pilot´s phone
New Straits Times [Malaysia], by Farrah Naz Karim *    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/13/2014 6:20:17 AM     Post Reply
KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone. (Snip) They are investigating the case under Section 130C of the Penal Code, which deals with hijacking, terrorism and sabotage offences, as well as the Security Offences (Special Measures) and Aviation Offences Acts. On why these findings were not made known, the sources said, like criminal investigations by any police

Obama Lets N.S.A. Exploit
Some Internet Flaws, Officials Say

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

BREAKING NEWS: BLM ends
roundup of Bundy cattle

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

In a profile of Press Secretary Jay Carney appearing in the magazine Washingtonian Mom, this photo of the loving family appears:(Snip for photo)Cute, isn’t it? But, as savvy Twitter users noticed almost immediately, the picture is photoshopped, and not very well at that. The right side of the book case is a mirror image of the left, which poses a slight problem. A problem I like to call “disembodied finger of a child floating in air”! It’s a common photoshop mistake:

ORLAND, Calif. – A tractor-trailer already was on fire as it came across a median and crashed into a tour bus, killing 10 people, according to a couple whose car was sideswiped by the big rig. Joe and Bonnie Duran were driving a sedan northbound on the 5 Freeway on Thursday when they said a FedEx truck heading south careened toward them, struck their rental car and crashed into the oncoming bus carrying high school students from Southern California. (Snip)Bonnie Duran, who was driving, told KNBC-TV in Los Angeles that flames were coming from the lower rear of the truck cab.

FBI: Middle school gang
behind mob violence
Courier-Journal [Louisville], by Patrick T. Sullivan and Andy Wolfson    Original Article

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
