History Shows Stocks, GDP Outperform Under Democrats

Even corporate profits show a disparity: S&P 500 GAAP earnings per share climbed a median of 10.5% per year since 1936 during Democratic administrations, besting an 8.9% median advance under Republicans, S&P said.

Post Office joins other federal agencies stockpiling over two billion rounds of ammo
Kit Daniels
On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.
“The United States Postal Service intends to solicit proposals for assorted small arms ammunition,” the notice reads, which also mentioned a deadline of Feb. 10.
The Post Office published the notice just two days after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced his proposal to remove a federal gun ban that prevents lawful concealed carry holders from carrying handguns inside post offices across the country.
Ironically the Postal Service isn’t the first non-law enforcement agency seeking firearms and ammunition.
Since 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Education has been building a massive arsenal through purchases orchestrated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
The Education Dept. has spent over $80,000 so far on Glock pistols and over $17,000 on Remington shotguns.
Back in July, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also purchased 72,000 rounds of .40 Smith & Wesson, following a 2012 purchase for 46,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point by the National Weather Service.
NOAA spokesperson Scott Smullen responded to concerns over the weather service purchase by stating that it was meant for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement for its bi-annual “target qualifications and training.”
That seems excessive considering that JHP ammunition is typically several times more expensive than practice rounds, which can usually be found in equivalent power loadings and thus offer similar recoil characteristics as duty rounds.
Including mass purchases by the Dept. of Homeland Security, non-military federal agencies combined have purchased an estimated amount of over two billion rounds of ammunition in the past two years.
Additionally, the U.S. Army bought almost 600,000 Soviet AK-47 magazines last fall, enough to hold nearly 18,000,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo which is not standard-issue for either the U.S. military or even NATO.
It would take a Lockheed Martin C-5 Galaxy, one of the largest cargo aircraft in the world, two trips to haul that many magazines.
A month prior, the army purchased nearly 3,000,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo, a huge amount but still only 1/6th of what the magazines purchased can hold in total.
The Feds have also spent millions on riot control measures in addition to the ammo acquisitions.
Earlier this month, Homeland Security spent over $58 million on hiring security details for just two Social Security offices in Maryland.
DHS also spent $80 million on armed guards to protect government buildings in New York and sought even more guards for federal facilities in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
While the government gears up for civil unrest and stockpiles ammo without limit, private gun owners on the other hand are finding ammunition shelves empty at gun stores across America, including shortages of once-common cartridges such as .22 Long Rifle.
UPDATE: Since the publication of this article, the USPS has amended its pre-solicitation, claiming that the ammunition is a "standard purchase" for the Postal Police. This does not explain, however, why the Postal Police was not listed in the original notice if this is standard. As the federal government grows larger, more and more federal agencies such as the Dept. of Education and NOAA are forming and arming their own "law enforcement divisions" with hundreds of thousands spent on full-blown arsenals. Even the EPA has its own SWAT teams conducting raids on peaceful Americans. Expect to see more large-scale firearm and ammunition purchases by these bureaucracies as they become even more militarized.

The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to
be "hidden" from the consumer, but it's been brought to the public's
attention
by hunting and fishing store Cabela's who have refused to hide it and are
showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts, the email states.
I did some research and found directly from the IRS's website information
that PROVES this to be true and an accurate portrayal of something hidden
in Obamacare that I was not aware of! Now being skeptical of this I went
to
the IRS website and found this!
Q1. What is the medical device excise tax?
A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code imposes an excise tax on the
sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the
device.
Q2. When does the tax go into effect?
A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after Dec. 31,
2012.
Q3. How much is the tax?
A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price of the taxable medical
device. See Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice
2012-77 for additional information on the determination of sale price.
IRS.gov < http://irs.gov/> ; * Chapter
Five** http://www.irs.gov/publications/p510/ch05.htm...
http://www.irs.gov/publications/p510/ch05.htm... *
*So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5Of IRS Publication 510." And
what do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under "MANUFACTURERS TAXES"?The
following discussion of manufacturers taxes*
*Applies to the tax on:*
*Sport fishing equipment; Fishing rods and fishing poles; Electric outboard
motors; Fishing tackle boxes; Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points; Arrow
shafts; Coal; Taxable tires; Gas guzzler automobiles; and Vaccines.*
*I NEVER KNEW THAT A TIRE IS A MEDICAL DEVICE.*
IRS.gov < http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p510.pdf> ; *I think we have
definitely been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all
about health care. It Truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill
laden with a whole lot of taxes that we the people have yet to be
aware of.
Please pass this on. I am still incredulous that this can go on. Where is
our press? I guess it's just like Nancy Pelosi said...
We have to pass it to see what is in it. What is next What else is there
we do not know about? I am sick to death about our government..!!!!!!
*God help us bring this nation back to a land of freedom, and to have the
courage and commitment to do so.*
*Tip of the iceberg!! Also don't forget the 3.8% tax on unearned income
which includes profit from sale of homes, condos .....*
"Vendors typically use upgraded sales software at the beginning of each year which is programmed to handle changes in tax laws that have just gone into effect, and on 1 January 2013 Cabela's found that their upgraded software was improperly applying the medical device excise tax to all purchases rather than just those of qualifying items:
A companywide glitch in Cabela's cash register system that added a 2.3 percent “Medical Excise Tax” to customers' purchases — everything from boots to bullets — was an error and will be refunded, a company spokesman said."

I am glad that Charlie Crist is hopefully going to accept the Medicaid expansion in Florida if he becomes Governor. There are around a million people that fall into that category.

Also, Florida has 1.5 million felons who have lost their voting rights; that represents 25% of the people who have lost their right to vote. This should be changed; if a person has done his time, his rights should be automatically restored.

You also thought it appropriate for a pharmacist to refuse to fill the Morning After Pill.
Galt agrees that CVS, or any other store, should have the right to refuse to sell cigarettes....

but by the same logic, they should also have the right to refuse to sell any other product...including birth control pills or morning after pills.....

The most appropriate thing would be for the bartender to refuse anything more for you.

But some got a 2-3% cut in percentage points and some got a 4 1/2 cut in percentage points.

Cuts in capital gains & investment income benefited the wealthy much more than others

When it comes to stimulating the economy, handing money to wealthy people is not very efficient.
