Vulture Capitalism. Willard Mitt Romney and Global Economic Collapse

July 22, 2012

Outrage about Willard Mitt Romney and Tax Evasion by Tom Nash.

July 15, 2012

He has written some coherent posts on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/tomnash56

Romney is whining over a charge from Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter that Romney might have committed a felony by misrepresenting his position at Bain in sworn testimony.

“It’s ridiculous, and of course it’s beneath the dignity of the presidency and of his campaign. He sure as heck ought to say that he’s sorry for the kinds of attacks that are coming from his team.”

Tell ya’ what Mitt, why don’t you release Board minutes from 1999-2002 and tax returns from 1999 forward to prove to Obama how unfair his team’s accusations are.

After all, the president released his birth certificate in response to whining from the right.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are pushing for tax cuts applied to all earnings under $250,000, that applies even for a billionaire’s regular income.

The Democratic proposal includes these provisions: a 20 percent capital gains rate on those earning over $250,000; and estate taxes on estates over $3.5 million.

So the moneyed elites will still get very favorable tax treatment just because they didn’t have to break a sweat, punch a clock, or even show up in order to earn their money. Everybody, including the wealthy will get a tax break extension on the first quarter of a million of non-capital gains taxable income.

Sounds like a sweet deal for the rich, right?

“What the President is proposing is therefore a massive tax increase on job creators and on small business. Small businesses are overwhelmingly being taxed not at a corporate rate, but at the individual tax rate. So successful small businesses will see their taxes go up dramatically and that will kill jobs.” (Mitt Romney)

Unfortunately it’s not as sweet of a deal as they want. As far as the “small business” crap goes, they will pay modest 4% increase on income above $250,000. If they don’t want to pay it, all they have to do is leave the excess in their business. Like maybe use it to create a job or 2 for a change.

With wealth disparity so severe that the richest 400 Americans own more than the bottom 150,000,000 Americans, it’s about time we reinstated a modest estate tax.

For you Fox News people who don’t understand my terminology:
Estate Tax=Death Tax
Billionaires=Job Creators
In right wing buzzword gibberish.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In sworn testimony establishing residency status in Massachusetts to run for governor Romney noted that he regularly traveled back to Massachusetts and “remained on the board of the Staples Corporation and Marriott International, the Life Like Corporation” at the time.

Yet a 2011, federal disclosure form filed as part of his presidential bid, he said:”Mr. Romney has not had any active role with any Bain Capital entity and has not been involved in the operations of any Bain Capital entity in any way.”

There are liars, damned liars, then there’s Mitt Romney.

Our Economy is starting to recover...

Civilization Coming soon.

MD: Until we put in policies that are conducive to an economic recovery, we will not have an economic recovery. Out unemployment will hover 
around the 9 to 10 % range for the forseeable future. I said this at the start of the recession, and so far I have been right. Sure, we will 
see spurts of recovery and Obama will try to make us believe there will be a recovery because of the election, but there will be no robust 
recovery needed to get this economy going.

Of Course, the obvious way to reduce unemployment is to RESET the social security retirement age to 55. Get the entire baby boom generation 
OUT of the work force. Let the NEXT generation have a chance.

OR, we could use come Comic Relief...

Thankfully, the price of a bus ticket remains the same even with the gas prices going CRAZY. It’s $2.20 round trip. This is less money than driving. Especially when you figure in the SURPRISE repair bills that come out of nowhere and whack you on the side of the head. Talk about a stressful situation… You and I have to get a high paying job to pay for the commute to our job. Circular madness… Yet, I have not found a way to earn a fortune online… My webstore has paid about $200 per YEAR. Sure, it is gratifying to sell my art at all, but it’s a long way from paying the rent and buying food.

My Invisible Friend (lyrics)

(Hay-Seuss)

I’ve got an invisible friend
and I call him Hay-seuss.
not Dr. Seuss or mother goose
but JESUS.

If you don’t believe
in Hay-seuss or mother goose
you’ll got to HELL (or Pittsburg)
and burn for eternity.

Oh, me and Jim Jones
we believe in Hay-seuss
and cyanide suicide
will get you quicker to his side.

I didn’t eat for three days
and I heard voices
God talked to me
like I was on LSD
and said you’re SATAN (or Peter Pan)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~.com
This Song was written when a friend of mine decided to find Jesus by fasting. He got real angry and became dangerous to be around… Considering that he spent time inside… I just walked the other way until he ate a big pile of spaghetti. FSM to the Rescue…
Here is some art to take your mind off troubles… Like friends acting crazy due to “Their Invisible Friend”.

Let’s suppose you wanted to distribute a secret message to your friends and family… Put your message in a Picture.  NO computer program would be able to “captcha” the secret message. It would take a HUMAN to read it… Comprende? Figure that the “Three Letter Agencies” have vast money to spend on data mining using computers but a dramatically smaller budget for employing PEOPLE to read your email. If everyone would just create messages that the computers can’t read, that would increase employment for voyeurs. The Peeping Toms that read your Facebook page are gainfully employed… Hey, it’s one way to decrease unemployment…
Hire more **@$#%#%#%%^&%^&%^&***
Of course, if you really want privacy… get the good stuff from PGP. At one point in time, it was a Federal Offense to export their data encryption programs. What a great selling point. Their programs are so good that they are ILLEGAL.

Cut Defense Spending by 400 Billion Dollars

May 1, 2011

I applaud President Obama’s Idea of de-funding the DoD. Many of the proposed projects are total wastes of our taxpayer’s dollars. For Example: Buying new aircraft carriers. Gee, don’t we have ENOUGH obsolete hardware already? We should refund the money to the taxpayers and we promise to spend it feeding our families, paying rent and putting gas in the car so we can get to our jobs… THAT would get the economy moving… We would spend it on useful things, or useless stuff, but we would employ clerks in stores and farmers…

Send President Obama a message: Cut spending at DoD and DEA. Do it for the KIDS!

We also could employ Americans growing Industrial Hemp. NO ONE can give a valid reason for Industrial hemp being illegal. I challenge ANYONE to tell me a reason. gregvan@yahoo.com

Depleted Uranium has a half life of 4.5 Billion Years and must be guarded the entire time. If an ‘Errorist stole Used Nuclear Fuel they could make a “Dirty Bomb”.  A “dirty bomb” uses conventional explosives to distribute radioactive debris over a wide area… ANYONE could create such a device in the comfort of their own home.  Imagine the cost of employing security guards to watch the radioactive waste…

Earthquakes and global warming: Linked?

February 7, 2010

Is there a cause and effect between the two? anyone know?
Write to me at: gregvan[at]yahoo[dot]com

Let’s suppose you take a balloon with two parallel lines on it. If you inflate the balloon the lines become farther apart. Now, suppose the lines are fault lines and the balloon is planet eARTh. If the fault lines move farther apart would we not get more slipping? more eARThquakes?

This question does not involve any discussion on causes of global warming… As we all know, The GLOBAL WARMING ON MARS is not due to air pollution… or greenhouse gasses.. or Driving cars… We have photographic Proof that MARS is heating up and the ice caps are shrinking… What we really need to do is start building THE SPACE PARASOL.
It’s cooler in the shade…

Re-set Social Security Retirement age to 55: Cure Unemployment NOW.

August 22, 2009

There are simply not enough jobs to be filled by people looking for work.

If we reduced the quantity of people looking for work by re-setting the age to 55, we would solve the unemployment “crisis”.

When I was young, everyone retired at 55. Every year the age has crept up… Now it’s 62. a few years from now it’ll probably be 64, then 66, 68, 70, 73, 78… how high can we count? It seems that retirement is always a few years away and constantly receding…

My dad pointed out that when he was working, the secretaries never got carpool-tunnel sin-drome… Why do they report it now???

Well, they typed on typewriters until their fingers wore out (at about 55) and never complained because they were retired… or never complained because they were afraid of getting fired… Lack of reporting does not mean the problem didn’t exist.

So, in order to reduce unemployment and reduce worker’s compensation claims… Set Social Security Retirement Age to 55.

If we have a trillion dollars to give away to the bankers, we can spent what’s needed to pay the people that have WORKED THEIR WHOLE LIFE.

Get the Baby Boomers out of the workforce so that the NEXT generation can thrive without unfair competition.

So, what’s it to be? Pay for Worker’s Compensation, Social Security Disability, State Disability, Welfare or do the right thing and re-set retirement age to 55.

At Humboldt State University in Arcata California the Campus Center for Appropriate Technology has invented an electric power station that uses a standard exercise bicycle driving an automobile alternator.  A belt wraps around the wheel and the alternator. The electricity is stored in a standard auto battery for use later. more info at:

Dear President Obama: Tax Marijuana

April 20, 2009

So, the war on marijuana has not actually worked… millions of people have been arrested for grass but remain unrepentant. Why not try a different approach? I have found that the government needs money to pay it’s bills and Taxing Marijuana woud be a great way to increase revenues while cutting costs. Less money spent on jails, more tax revenues coming in. GEE, EVERYONE WINS! Of course, I don’t smoke grass and would pay zero taxes… Let the criminals pay! We would also benefit from all the other uses hemp has. fabric, paper, oil for fuel, medicine… We are wasting taxpayers dollars on a system that has proven itself to be a failure. The only people that benefit by the current system are the criminals that pocket the profits. Here in Humboldt County California people build marijuana plantations way out in the woods and burn diesel fuel to power grow lamps. Often there are diesel spills or fires caused by poorly designed lighting systems. We have about 3 fires a year at indoor grows in the city of Eureka alone. For safety: Legalize and Tax Marijuana and put the criminals out of business.
