WASHINGTON -- It's official. For any future White House aspirant to become the greatest fundraiser of all-time, they're going to have to pass the current holder of that title, President Barack Obama, and his record of $1.4 billion raised by his personal campaign committee during his two successful runs for the White House.

It would take Obama forever, since he has already proven that he has absolutely no idea whatsoever how to solve the economic disaster he has continued for 4 years and has made sure will continue for generations with his massive non-stimulus failures and increasing debt.

Washington Post to pay dividend early

Warren Buffett to profit by evading Obama tax hike

WASHINGTON (AP)-- The Washington Post Co. will pay its 2013 dividends before the end of this year to try to spare investors, including Warren Buffett, from anticipated Obama tax increases. hen asked about this seeming contradiction, Buffett replied that taxing the wealthy did not apply to billionaire friends of Obama.

This action comes as the Post is laying off employees due to declining advertising sales.

The media and education company said Friday that its dividend of $9.80 per share is payable Dec. 27 to shareholders of record as of Dec. 17. The payout is instead of regular quarterly dividends next year.

Washington Post is the latest company to move up its quarterly payout or issue a special end-of-year payment to protect investors from potentially having to pay higher taxes on dividend income starting in January.

Since 2003 investors have paid a maximum 15 percent on dividend income. But that historically low rate will expire in January unless Congress and President Barack Obama reach a compromise on taxes and government spending. As it stands, dividends will be taxed as ordinary income in 2013, the same as wages, so rates will go up depending on which income bracket a taxpayer is in. For the highest earners, the dividend rate would jump to 43.4 percent.

The Washington Post's dividend payment also stands to benefit those with a significant stake in the company, such as Warren Buffett's firm Berkshire Hathaway. Berkshire is its largest shareholder with an estimated 1.7 million shares, which means it could get a roughly $17 million dividend payment.

Washington Post shares rose $4.83 to close at $372.14.

I don't have a problem with teaching the contributions of blacks to history and science integrated into the curriculum. It's important.

But it's a matter of blending in, thinking like an American instead of a person who's black and letting go of the past.

The ones who have done that have no complaints, false arrogance and don't hold a grudge.

A mentality of victimization serves no one and receives little sympathy from anyone.
