Over 94,500,000 Americans decide Not to Work!

Setting a record for the number of people deciding to ‘not join the work force’ has left Unemployment percentages uncertain.
The latest story of 5% unemployment is being hailed as a Victory by the perpetually surprised Keynesian Economist Class.
Given the record level of individuals who have simply decided not to work, or look for work, genuine mathematicians are left scratching their heads.
The Trumpeted 5% number is based on one the lowest levels of those wanting to work in the history of the United States.  In fact, the number of those who have decided not to work is roughly one Third of the Country!  That’s one out of three people have chosen to take a ‘different path’.
When you combine this with the 5% unemployment experienced just 10-years ago being assailed as a National Tragedy…
Serious thinkers must rightfully be confused.
The only conclusion we can draw from this information is Administration Number Monkeys will keep throwing their Poo at us.


155,000,000 Dependants

Or… The 47%.

I’ve scheduled an appointment with my CPA to discuss my 2012 Tax deductions.

I will now be claiming 155,000,000 dependants.

I’m also going to look into writing off their:

Food.

Clothing.

Education.

Transportation.

Medical Expenses.

(And this year… Phones and Homes.)

I’m not entirely sure but I expect I could have some carry-over loss for 2013.

I would also like to claim day-to-day living expenses for my dependants, considering they are all living under my “roof” so to speak,  I don’t think there is a provision for it… but I’m going to check.

Can’t be too careful!

I never want to take tax deductions for anything I don’t deserve, so if I happen to attract the attention of the IRS I’m ready to explain that it is my deepest wish all of my Dependants move out from under my wing and become productive, useful members of our society.  Everyday I try to lead by example and teach them the ways of the world.  Sometimes my youngest ones seem to get it, sometimes they don’t.  I’ve almost given up on my oldest.  But, I only wish for them the best with all of my heart.

The only reason I share this is tax time is just around the corner… and I expect an unusual amount of paperwork could be associated with my taxes this year.

This might be the case for you as well.

But remember, family comes first.  So be sure to take make some quality time with your family for the Holidays.  May be five minutes for each person you provide care for…

That should carry me through the year 9384.

Better get started on both.


So who’s offended by Romney’s remarks?

Romney is now on the public record stating what the majority of us believe.

He has said out loud that there are too many people dependant on drugs… wait, no… my tax dollars. There are too many people who don’t pay any taxes.  And that peace in the Middle East is “unlikely”.
Listening to the media you would think he has lost the election because these remarks were so offensive.
So let’s go down this road…
If in fact someone is offended, who are they?

Nobody I care about offending.

The only constituency I can see that could possibly be offended are those dependant on drugs… sorry… my tax dollars.  These are exactly the people who need to be offended as they should not be allowed to be comfortable in their position.  Frankly, I’m offended that they voted for the Socialist policies that put them in this situation in the first place and then expect me to support them so they can vote for more of the same.

I happen to agree with Mitt, there are too many people who don’t pay taxes.  If you don’t have skin in the game why on earth should you a.) care about anything in regard to spending and b.) vote for anybody who will put your skin in the game?  See the problem here?  We have created a bunch of tax dollar addicts… intentionally.

Regarding the last part of his comments, the ones about “peace being unlikely in the Middle East”, I can think of no one who could be offended by this comment. I can’t think of a single person delusional enough to find offense at this simple statement of reality. Note: He didn’t say impossible… he said unlikely. I probably would have thrown in something along the lines of “a million to one odds…” but I’m a student of history and Romney must not be.  There is no Revelation here… or Reformation for that matter.
So are we really going to eat up some additional time talking about something we all know to be true?
Believe it or not, I’m okay with that. I actually think this works in Romney’s favor. I’m not even factoring in the knee jerk opposition to the Cottage Industry of the Offended that is beginning to manifest itself nation-wide, that’s just a bonus.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Liberals are out of ideas… at least ideas which help them.  They are Certainly out of ideas that they can manufacture in a short 45 days.  Sitting around hoping that Mitt fathers a child out-of-wedlock with a nut-job videographer is not “a plan”.  And, it’s already been done.

Now they are grasping at straws, shooting themselves in the foot, being forced to stand up and say out loud who they really are.  Perfect.  Let’s keep this going for a few weeks.  May be they’ll even start talking about Bain again!
(Fear not Socialists… there is always Hillary.  I can hear it now…”In a time of such global unrest, we cannot afford to turn the reigns of foreign policy over to individuals with little or no experience. The risk is far too high. The consequences far too grave. This is why I have decided to ask Mrs. Clinton to join me at this pivotal moment in global history as my Vice President so we can attempt to ease these extraordinary tensions in the Middle East brought on by decades of neglect and misunderstanding.”)

Come on Barack… I can’t live with Hillary just being asked… You know you want to do it.  Well, you don’t want to do it, but the Clintons want you to do it.  Your voter base wants you to do it.  And I want you to do it just so I can say you’re predictable…

Please don’t be offended.


Stop Apologizing, Fool.

Mitt Romney told the truth. And he is now apologizing for it.

This is, and has been, my problem with Mitt Romney.
When you say something such as “there are people who feel entitled to handouts and do not pay taxes who will vote for President Obama no matter what…”, you are stating a fact. This is not up for debate. It is not an “opinion”. This is the truth.

You should not care who is offended by the truth.
So… you should not apologize. Ever. You don’t even think about it.

Yet, he does and did.

Keep in mind, he has my vote… but he was not my first choice exactly because of situations like this. His ideological foundation that his premises are built upon is questionable at best. I believe Romney will win this election, but he will need to be watched closely throughout his term.  (This reality will also require many “limited government conservatives” to ride his coat-tails into office. The down ticket matters immensely.)

So why does this man need to have a very strong grounding in Limited Government and Free-Markets?

Because if he wins he will have to extricate government interference from the markets and employ simple, predictable tax law so we can figure out how to invest.  He will have to communicate this clearly and often… almost daily.  He will have to communicate at every step.  He will have to understand, genuinely know, that this is what must be done in order to save the U.S. from fiscal collapse.

So what does that mean?

It means that there will be a ton of pain quickly.  Interest rates will need to skyrocket in order to begin undoing the ridiculous amount of newly printed money that has been pushed into the market. There will be at least a full year of ugliness before economic numbers can begin to improve.   Romney will have Socialists screaming “SEE, SEE, SEE, he’s no better!  He’s even WORSE!  And if the Republicans have any desire to retain the House and Senate in 2014 they will have to be prepared for this, starting at the top.  Retaining both houses will be integral to any possible success, this eventuality will force a very accelerated and painful 2013.  But the up-front pain is only the first step of recovery from our addiction to government and the Socialist paradigm.  This will be a decades long process.

So back to my original point… if this guy is apologizing for making a factual statement, where is he going to be when things get hard?  If he can’t stand by the truth, what will he do when the population needs an explanation, and a lot of them, not an apology?

The covert tape of this Boca Raton fundraiser where he states the facts he is now apologizing for should instead be turned into a campaign ad.  It could only add some clarity to a person best described as Mr. Gray Area.

Mitt Romney does not yet know why he thinks what he thinks.  We can not assume he ever will.  We must surround him with people in the House and Senate who do.

His Fear of truth is unacceptable.

Somebody buy this guy a shot.
