I have no idea as to who Slim Pickens is. But, in reading his posts, it is clear that he has a a severe mental problem. I am not saying that he is stupid or crazy, just that perhaps he has some type of Bi-Polar mental condition, he certainly has a fixation.

But, as much as I disagree with him, even he occasionally hits upon a real point. YOu just have to wade through so much manure to find the real points.

Don't forget that the crop-subsidized and insured welfare scum doesn't even live in the flooded area himself. Don't forget that the New Madrid floodway was 60 percent underwater a week ago Thursday from backwash coming up from the southern end and that Birds Point was already overtopped on Monday with the river still a foot and a half below crest? Before it was breached.

(Maybe his meth lab got taken out or something? I guess that you can't get crop insurance on a rig like that?)

I propose that the Corps builds a control structure at Bird's Point just like all the floodways in Louisiana have? To flush these federal welfare scums out every 7-10 years or so.

Oh that's right? Like I said up above, Slim Pickens doesn't even live in the flooded area and his losses from flooding are covered by the same people who issue Food Stamps in Cairo too.

Slim Pickens does or did draw a check - off the land in Missouri that got flooded so I guess that depends on what your version of a check is.

As much as it pains me to admit it you are correct this slim pickens did hit on a few points that need to be addressed although the additude that carried these points is very disturbing. I,m going to guess that either this person was never taught that if you want people to acknowledge what you say it has to come across in a manner that is pleasing or else this person was mistreated as a child an is now dealing with rage issues that sorely need to be addressed. It sounds like if they would quit focusing on how bad ass they can present themselves an just let the knowledg do the speaking there might actually be some intelligence in there somewhere.

This individual doesn't actually live in the Floodway and will get paid by "Big Gubmint" for not growing crops this spring. Probably not the first time THAT ever happened either.

Both of these statements would still be true if Birds Point hadn't been breached. Or if Cairo had been swept away two weeks ago.

So I wonder if this clown still believes in "weapons of mass destruction" too?

Apparently you have some rage and anger issues yourself. Over the past two years your president has managed to spend more money than Bush did throughout his entire eight years in office. As an excuse making Cairo sympathizer, I do understand your patterns of blame. I myself cross party lines where you'd return a crook like Charles Rangel back to office in a heart beat. Chicago and Cairo seem to share a pattern of crooks in office. Then when money begins to disappear and evaporate you find someone to blame other than yourself and the voters. Cairo seems to be in a situation now where they have a new mayor and know very little about him. I suppose that's the GOPs fault too. You say that farmers don't live in the real world as mentioned on another topic. I suggest that the next time you're cramming down a big mac and fries, consider where they came from. Perhaps you drive a Chevy Volt, have an organic garden, power your home with wind and solar, and live that touchy feely green life, who knows..........

Hey Slim, now you are walking on sacred ground.

DO NOT mess with my touchy, feely green life! Understand?

Now, Slim is not crazy and did not have a traumatic childhood. He did/does what any great marketing pro does. He needed to/wanted to get our attention and he certainly accomplished that as he always does when he uses this approach.

Beyond that, I can understand his frustration. He is, like my daughter, single, no kids, makes really good money, pays a bucket load of income taxes. Slim and my daughter, who also elected not to have kids, paid more than the average income of Cairo in taxes last year.

Then that person with kids not only pays far less, if any, taxes but gets money back from the government.

Something like 47% of the taxpayers in the US pay no income taxes. This is not sustainable. I just read GE paid no income taxes last year. This is not sustainable, either.

Someone has to start talking and 47% of the taxpayers are not going to want to hear it. The GEs of the country are not going to want to hear it either.

And Slim is right, Washington is not talking about it either.

My state just cut their budget by 3% each of the next 2 years. State workers' pay has been frozen for 3 years and will remain frozen for 2 more years. Illinois raised Slim's state income taxes by more than $ 4,000 this year and voted at the same time to increase spending by 2 or 2 1/2%.

Should Slim be pissed? Yes and at least he is bright enough to know it. Many of you will not figure it out until the gravy train derails and that is going to happen sooner rather than later.

Oops, you said INCOME taxes. That makes sense with so many out of work or making peanuts for pay.

Still, a link would be nice.

I try really hard not to make up information I post on here! This has been a story in the news all tax season.

47% will pay no federal income tax
An increasing number of households end up owing nothing in major federal taxes, but the situation may not be sustainable over the long run.

In 2009, roughly 47% of households, or 71 million, will not owe any federal income tax, according to estimates by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Some in that group will even get additional money from the government because they qualify for refundable tax breaks.

The ranks of those whose major federal tax burdens net out at zero -- or less -- is on the rise. The center's original 2009 estimate was 38%. That was before enactment in February of the $787 billion economic recovery package, which included a host of new or expanded tax breaks.

It looks like this 47% does not include the unemployed.

""Did you known 47% of Americans pay no Federal income taxes even though they have earned income? I am reproducing this chart from one of my favorite blogs, Carpe Diem, run by University of Michigan economist Mark Perry. The chart points out that many Americans do not pay income taxes even though they have income.""

Wages have stagnated in the U.S. since the late 1970's. That's from the C.I.A.'s website. The picture got even worse under Reagan. He was the great union buster. He started the union busting movement & it was a huge success. Unfortunately, we needed those unions to keep pay up enough to purchase the goods we were producing. Should have learned that lesson in the Great Depression:(

Anyway, you can't squeeze blood from a turnip. People make shit wages... surely not enough to cover the bills & save. Credit cards carried us for a while, but look what happened there. Record level bankruptcies. Ditto for foreclosures.

We're stuck with low wages & Walmart for a long, long time.

But what does this have to do with Cairo?;)

I'll get the CIA link in a sec. This computer has problems.
