Are you a Tax Patriot?

Moby the Tax Patriot

Billionaire Warren Buffett says rich people should pay more taxes. Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength are willing to sacrifice their own fiscal well-being for the common good. Right? Wrong! They aren’t risking anything themselves.  But as many as 200,000 small businesses might be severely impacted by this devilish ploy by the elite left.

Are these multi-millionaires more patriotic than those who want the Bush Tax cuts extended for all Americans? It is not absurd to think that raising taxes on everyone making over $1 Million Dollars will be good for job creation or the economy in general? We are in a sever economic downturn. Now is not the time to raise taxes on anyone. Why doesn’t your little group donate your extra cash to the government. Hey NPR is looking for some more left wing money. Why not dump your cash in the trash heap of political thought. Wouldn’t that be more patriotic, helping government programs?

It is absurd for this group to call themselves Patriots. Tea Party or as you libs say,  Tea Baggers, are the true patriots in this political arena. Not big government people who want the US to run everything from GM to Anthem. If you want to kill entrepreneurial spirit in this country, then raise taxes. You will get less of what you tax. Increase taxes on small business, get less small business.

What is the Incentive to Grow to $1 Million or more?
What small business person wants to raise their income to over $1 million if that bumps them into a larger tax bracket. If you are making $950K and you could grow (by hiring) to $1.2 Million, yo might not if your taxes will result in less after tax income. Where is the incentive to grow? Work harder, hire more employees for less money? I think very few small business owners would do that. Would you call these people unpatriotic?

Rude Rich Snobs
How insulting M-o-b-y. How Rude Bob Epstein. How out of line, Cynda Collins Arsenault. Must be nice to sit on your billion dollar thrones and speak down to the struggling small business person.

Here is a quote from these so called ‘patriots.’

We have done very well over the last several years. Now, during our nation’s moment of need, we are eager to do our fair share. We don’t need more tax cuts, and we understand that cutting our taxes will increase the deficit and the debt burden carried by other taxpayers. The country needs to meet its financial obligations in a just and responsible way.- Source: Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength

Not all millionaires are faring as well as these 45 Multi-Millionaires.
SMB, Small and Medium Sized Businesses are often Sub-Chapter S corporations. Income flows directly to these business owners. On good years, a million dollars may be their income. But on lean years, income could be considerably less, maybe even a loss. Small businesses need cash to weather the storm. Businesses that have contracted from $5 million to $1 million may be on the verge of going out of business AND laying off the rest of their crew if not for good years. So what are we going to do for businesses building a war chest? We are going to tax them more.

Multi-Millionaires don’t understand small business. They are right about themselves needing to pay more taxes, but they are dead wrong about small businesses owners near $1 Million.

It’s as if the super rich want to keep the nearly rich from become larger and thus employing more people. They want to keep their thumb on the small businessman. They are trying to get the man to keep us down. Keep small businesses small.

So who are these super rich patriots who want to step on the little business person? They are according to their website today:

You can reach their organization via their email: info@agendaproject.org
So we contact a guy named INFO. How personal.

If you don’t know what to say, let me get you started below:

——————————————-
Dear info:

First of all, if you had any balls at all, you would publish your membership email addresses. Let them tell me directly that I’m not a patriot because I am not a billionaire who wants to raise taxes on my fellow business owner.

Secondly, your arrogant pricks, your website is nothing but misleading propaganda.

Here is a fact on their website:

“In 1963, millionaires had a top marginal tax rate of 91%”

Does that make it right? Do you patriots on the list want to see a 91% tax rate? Were millionaires in 1963 more patriotic? Hey, by the way, State revenues last year dropped the most since 1963. Not a good sign. You should have picked a different stat to spin.

Did you forget about this tax rate being the setup for the next decade and a half of poor economic performance in the US?

Just because you are billionaires doesn’t make you an economist. Nor does it make you more of a patriot than those paying little or no income tax.

Please stop insulting me and my fellow brother and sister small business owners.

Tear down that website, Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength.

It would be the patriotic thing to do.

Signed,

An American Business Owner, Taxpayer and Patriot

There is no Free Speech at NPR


All Things Considered? Really? Does the NPR, the National Public Radio allow free speech by all its radio personalities? The answer is NO! and the evidence is the firing of Juan Williams for speaking his mind. 

Juan Williams was fired by NPR over this remark, “…when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

Mr. Williams was clearly expressing his personal reservations about the subject matter, not making an anti-Muslim remark of any sort. Williams’ comment was not about Muslims directly, it was more how he deals with his bias. Yet NPR didn’t see it that way.

“His remarks on The O’Reilly Factor this past Monday were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR,” the NPR statement read.

Editorial Standards? Really
Is this what NPR has become? An editoral staff that is so strict that their employees cannot express an opinion without retaliation? I fail to see how Mr. Williams remarks compromises the “editorial standards’ of NPR.

NPR has no ‘public’ standards anyway, just an liberal agenda that only tolerates attacks on conservative values. NPR that once ran an editorial cartoon titled, “How To Speak Tea Bag,” yes its ok to attack some groups.  Terry Gross’s NPR radio show is nothing but a Christian bashing, show that makes any Christian sound like an illiterate hate group.  Also Daniel Shorr, Nina Totenberg, Diane Rheim, Scott Simon may as well be paid consultants of the Democratic party.

Not Public Radio
NPR needs a name change because they don’t really represent the views of the public. There is nothing ‘national’ or ‘public’ about a radio station that has ‘control’ over its employees right to free speech at this level. It really Not Public Radio its Nasty Private Radio.

Racism is Alive At NPR …Let’s keep it a Secret
As of today, NPR is officially a ‘racist’ radio station because it fired African-American, Juan Williams for stating his opinion. If Fox fired Williams for remarks, this would be a headline story.

Stop Funding NPR
It way beyond time to stop funding NPR with public money. Lets change the name to National Progressive Radio. US tax dollars should absolutely NOT be going to fund what for years has been a cathedral for the “progressive” speak.  Maybe its time to start talking about implementing the Fairness Doctrine to NPR.  Its time for NPR to try to survive on its own in the free market. Write your state and federal representatives and demand that NPR’s federal funding be removed and used to reduce our federal budget deficit.

FoxNews Pulls the Plug on YouTube Channels

foxnewsvsyoutube
Reported yesterday at Gawker, and Raw News, FoxNews has sent out DMCA take down notices to YouTube channel owners.

In both the stories above, they claim they were attacks on liberal bloggers. And it certainly looked that way because the first one to go down was News1News, the most used YouTube channel for liberal bloggers. The owner of the channel was sent a DMCA take down notice and all his uploaded content was gone. Also gone, every video on every blog that ever used that channel, including sites like Huffington Post, Gawker, Mediate, and others. The liberal bloggers were in a frenzy and claimed it was a new war on FoxNews. Initially it looked like an extreme case of FOXNEWS vs Liberal Bloggers.

By the end of the night, there were more channels being taken down by FoxNews. GlennBeckDailyClips, a channel many conservatives use to catch clips of FoxNews commentator Glenn Beck, and ConservativeNation were both suspended. ConservativeNewMedia, another popular conservative YouTube channel, took down all of their FoxNews content but their channel remains.

There’s no telling what FoxNews’ motive is here. Yes, its technically their content, and they are full within their rights to pull the plug, but to prevent MILLIONS of people from accessing these YouTube channels also prevents Millions of people from viewing the shows and content of FoxNews. Maybe they’re just trying to drive traffic to their site, where you can also find videos to embed on your blogs/websites. But if you’re like me and nearly everyone else who uses a free blog service, like wordpress, what you see below is as far as you’ll get to an embedded video on your blog.

NOT A VIDEO!—> Watch the latest business video at FOXBusiness.com

Instead we’re going to have to link to videos. So if you feel like watching one, here’s a link to the “Greg-alogue”, from RedEye last night.

WTF FoxNews?!?!








Update: Since I can still add YouTube Videos, here’s a interview with Rupert Murdoch which could explain the motive for Fox to remove their YouTube content, money. (h/t @Stefan_MK1)
