Tax the Rich

Tax the Rich

Not really. They, like everyone else, is already being taxed.
But those Democrats, Liberals and Progressives who are always yelling the rich should pay more seem to be avoiding the obvious solution.
Why not ask the millionaire news reporters, senators, member of congress, actors, singers, musicians, football, basketball and baseball players to stop seeking ways to legally reduce their taxes and pony up, put their money where their mouths are and donate most of their money to the IRS, thus reducing taxes for the “little people” they claim to care deeply about.

Global warming primer
Call it Global Warming. Call it Climate Change. Call it whatever you want to call it but don’t be fooled by those advocating something must be done to stop it and save the world from a climate disaster.
Al Gore, the Pope and Bill McKibben will wag their fingers and flap their mouths to warn you of the dangers and tell you it is all your fault. But it isn’t.
They are correct about one thing while being wrong about just about everything else they say.
They are correct when they say humans are the primary cause of Global Warming/Climate Change. They are wrong when they try to convince you that you can solve the problem by “going green” and by supporting their push to stop mining coal, drilling for oil and natural gas, and trading in your car for a bicycle.
None of those things will accomplish anything so long as the human population continues to grow.
More and more humans create the demand for more and more energy and that demand far outstrips the energy that can be supplied by wind turbines and solar panels. Perhaps even more important is the fact that more and more humans destroy planet Earth for all animal and plant life.
Adding more and more humans to the planet is like adding more and more people to a sinking ship while claiming to save everyone by simply bailing water from the sinking ship with a tea cup .
Solar panels and wind mills are the tea cups that will not save planet earth.
The only solution is to stop and then reverse the number of humans on the planet.

Money to blow

I see where the government is thinking of sending all tax payers some money. Maybe as much as $800. Our fearless leaders are afraid there is or might be a recession and they hope this will jump start the economy – get people to spend money to revive the economy.
I think I’m like everyone. I’ll take the money (They took from me) but I have no intention to shop till I drop.
My plan, and maybe it should be the plan for many, is to pay down or off some credit cards. Tax time is coming and if you owe the IRS some money, you might just as well use your money to pay them. The price of fuel oil propane and electric getting you down? How about paying those bills and getting your tanks filled up so you don’t freeze to death?
In other word, unless you are rich, be smart with this money if it comes. Don’t go out and buy junk from China! Be smarter than our elected officials by lowering your debts.
That’s my plan. What’s yours?
