The day when the nation collectively has made enough money to pay its total tax burden for the year is three days later this year, according to a new report. According to a report released Monday by the Tax Foundation, this year Tax Freedom Day falls 111 days into 2014, on April 21. By April 21, to group says, Americans will have made enough to pay the $3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state taxes — more than they will spend on food clothing and housing combined. Tax Freedom Day is later than it was last year, due in large

Democrats will not rest until every man, woman and child is paying 100% tax. They will call this "freedom from want". And Karl Marx will look up from hell and smile.

No, I take that back - they won´t be happy with 100%. They´ll raise it to 110% and call everyone who refuses to pay more than 100% "greedy".

This is how you know when your taxes are too high.

... due in large part to the Obama vacations and diplomatic (ha) excursions... and to borrowing billions to send to other countries (who hate us). We are experiencing the willful destruction of the American Dream.

Call it federal income tax freedom day. All the other state and local taxes would throw tax freedom day into late August.

‘Lawrence Of Afghanistan’ Was
Forced To Resign Due To Affair
With Washington Post Reporter

A special forces commander made legendary by his unorthodox but effective strategy was forced to retire because of an affair with a Washington Post reporter, ABC reports. Jim Gant, a Green Beret major, was quietly relieved in March 2012 after 22 months in combat. He was charged with living in a “self-created fantasy world” full of alcohol, prescription drugs and a sexual affair with former Post reporter Ann Scott Tyson — all deep inside Taliban and al-Qaida territory. But Gant and Tyson tell a different story in their book “American Spartan: The Promise, The Mission And The Betrayal of Special Forces Major

The Secret to Thad Cochran´s

Senator Thad Cochran´s narrow victory over Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Senate runoff deprives Democrats of their argument that Republicans are beholden to the Tea Party wing of their party. But it offers them some optimism that African-American voters will show up in healthy numbers for the midterm elections, given that they made the difference in a Republican runoff in a deeply conservative state. There was clear evidence that Cochran´s attempt to boost Democratic African-American turnout paid off in a big way. In Jackson´s Hinds County, where two-thirds of the population is black, Cochran won 73 percent of the

Charles Bernard Rangel had just bounded out of a gleaming black Mercedes coupe onto the terra firma of 125th St. to kick off the final Sunday of his campaign when a reporter stopped him cold with a question about Barack Obama. Here was the sorest of subjects for Rangel, who had been repeatedly rebuffed in his attempt to get to get America’s first black president to back him in a life-or-death Democratic primary he promises will be his last. Rangel responded with his broad, Kevlar grin, ingratiating and defensive all at once. “No, I haven’t spoken with him, and no, I’m

It is objectively true that Clinton’s “dead broke” comment earned her mockery from political analysts and allies alike. An empirical analysis of the political landscape would force any competent observer to concede that the former secretary of state has spent the last two weeks performing damage control in the effort to limit the fallout from that comment. Even former President Bill Clinton was forced to defend his wife’s claim from the censure of fact-checkers. Those center-left media personalities who do not thrive on the crafting Slate-like, absurdly counter-intuitive takes, have observed the obvious: Clinton’s week has been an atrocious one.

When George Talley tells an old story, there’s a good chance he’ll mention his old rides. "I’ve always liked Corvettes. It was attractive. The ladies like ‘em,” said George. But so did the thieves, and George learned that the hard way. The last time he saw his ‘79 Corvette, it was parked on Jefferson Avenue 33 years ago. "I made a police report, and I haven’t seen it since July of 1981,” said George. George often wondered about the one that got away. That is until recently.

Shaheen support, ties to breast

Senator Jeanne Shaheen has been a strong advocate for spending government money to fight breast cancer. The New Hampshire Democrat has signed letters since she entered the Senate five years ago seeking $150 million to maintain a Defense Department breast cancer research program — despite objections by some other lawmakers — and last year, she endorsed an initiative to “end breast cancer” by 2020. But Shaheen has also had a family financial stake in the research. In 2009, her husband, William, became an adviser to a Southern California startup, Ultrawave Labs Inc., that was developing new imaging technology to detect

After washing up, professed germaphobe Stacy Hafeman eyed hand dryers in a Costco restroom and decided the only acceptable way to dry her hands was with her black T-shirt. "It looked like I had been sprayed with a water gun," she said. On her way out, Ms. Hafeman, a 41-year-old former nursing assistant from West Bend, Wis., used her damp shirt again—to pull the door handle. Bathroom experiences like Ms. Hafeman´s are the cause of much hand-wringing in the high-tech dryer industry. Over the past decade, dryers have become faster and cheaper. But despite technological advances, hand dryers leave millions of Americans unsatisfied. In

Probiotics are having a moment. Though the good gut bugs are likely beneficial for some, companies are using the label to rip off consumers. Probiotics are everywhere. Walk in your local mega-mart, and it’s hard to miss the products offering you an extra dose of beneficial microbes. In the past few years, the number of scientific articles published on the effects of probiotics on everything from cancer to anxiety has jumped from 175 in 2000 to a whopping 1,281 in 2013. These studies have already begun to show that certain types of probiotics are an effective treatment for some specific conditions. But there’s

Michelle Obama thinks she knows what your children should eat. She’s adamant about promoting her nutrition policies for kids, even the new and disastrous school meal standards implementing the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.” In a recent MSN interview, Michelle Obama revealed her own struggles with getting her kids to eat properly before she came to the White House. This apparently led to a major realization: “I thought to myself, if a Princeton- and Harvard-educated professional woman doesn’t know how to adequately feed her kids, then what are other parents going through who don’t have access to the information I have?” This motivated

Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian mother who had been sentenced to death in Sudan by Islamic authorities, has been re-released, according to reports on Tuesday late afternoon. Ibrahim was originally sentenced to death and ordered to be lashed for allegedly converting from Islam to Christianity, however, she was set free from prison on Monday when an appeals court overturned the original conviction. The joy of her release was short-lived, however, as she and her Christian husband were detained at an airport in Sudan less than 24 hours following her release. But another update on Tuesday has confirmed that Ibrahim has once

Eli Wallach, who was one of his generation’s most prominent and prolific character actors in film, onstage and on television for more than 60 years, died on Tuesday. He was 98. His death was confirmed by his daughter Katherine. A self-styled journeyman actor, the versatile Mr. Wallach appeared in scores of roles, often with his wife, Anne Jackson. No matter the part, he always seemed at ease and in control, whether playing a Mexican bandit in the 1960 western “The Magnificent Seven,” a bumbling clerk in Ionesco’s allegorical play “Rhinoceros,” a henpecked French general in Jean Anouilh’s “Waltz of the Toreadors,” Clark

CNN reports Romney will formally endorse Brown — an ex-senator from Massachusetts — next week in his bid to become the GOP nominee to take on Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor who has a vacation home in New Hampshire, is popular in the Granite State. Despite his repeated protests that he’s not interested in another White House bid, Romney is the top choice for president

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%. In just one month, disapproval of Obama´s foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare.

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice.

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has had a rough time of it ever since she asserted that both she and her husband were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House in 2001. “A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage,” Politifact observed. “This hardly fits the common meaning of ‘dead broke.’” Clinton might have taken the public backlash over this minor gaffe in stride, but she didn’t.

Given the bitter nature of the runoff in Mississippi, this probably surprises no one, but it’s also unlikely to produce any further surprises. After a narrow loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, Chris McDaniel refused to concede last night. Instead, he blasted Cochran’s GOTV strategy and promised a challenge to the results: State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen.

Apparently because he doesn´t get out of the White House enough (?) -- or have enough to do? -- President Obama will travel to Minnesota on Thursday to "spend a day with Rebekah," described by the White House as a "hardworking mom from Minneapolis," who wrote to the president to tell him "how much harder it´s become to get ahead and do right by her family." When the president receives letters like Rebekah´s, he "makes notes in the margins, and sits down to reply personally," the White House said. This time, he´s made plans to meet with Rebekah -- on Thursday --
