An 'adjusted' gross income of $3/4million certainly puts him in the 1%rs club. You just know he feels the pain of gas prices when he fills up AF1 for another apology tour.

It doesn't matter how much Kong made. The rich owns 80 % of the resources (financial, capital, technological, etc.) so if they pay 70 % of the taxes they still own the bulk of the GDP!

The rich can lobby and get their way. You and I DON'T GET OUR WAY UNLESS WE PROTEST OR USE VIOLENCE!

SUBJECT:________Whose failures and faults are, by manifesting with the emerging influence of Communism to the world today --- China?

Obviously they are guilty, especially Obama, Bush, including Clinton, who would be of failures and faults .

They have been conducting for serving Communist China’s interests to make it flourishing against USA and free word people as if China is their country.

At present, the surging China, built by especially Obama and Bush, would sooner or later push US and free world people away, if nothing is done about it.

This is merely to help people out by noting :_______Never Give Up Freedom, Freedom Cultures and Value All Over The Globe.

It is VERY BAD, very bad indeed = Uprising with more Communism = Unwarranted and Negative = Weakening and Endangering of Free world countries and destruction of freedom.

When former Soviet Union quit Communism, that was the major Communism power that went away. Among other countries of Communism left , there are few , such as China, North Korea, Cuba.
The only one which could pose the uprising of erosive thoughts of Communism nature would be China. But people have to ask the question,“Why wouldn’t China fade away as well with its Communism since a big Communism power--- Soviet Union, is not there to back it up?”

Obviously they are guilty, especially Obama, Bush, including Clinton, as they have done that, to make Communist China gain ground against USA and freedom people all over the world.

What is the matter with you people ---- do you know who are the people still building Communism?

Why would not those responsible pay attention to not allow the surging of Communism still going today, to upset freedom-loving people?

Why are those who are guilty, still let it go on , to this point of time so far?

Do they want you people to give a try, or do and make for a change of taking in Communism?

That is why since no history of any time, USA has been infested with vast amounts of falsehood of Communism toxicity to people’s lives and cultures these days.

China would not have been today expanding with its Communism affects poisoning people , build-up of its military and other areas, if there were no Bush and Obama being there .

They are to be blamed as the ones who have done against you people’s freedom and giving you people insecurity of economies and freedom way of life. But you people have not done such awful things according to your positions. However, how come has it made possible that you people let it happen to this alarming stage?

Then from now on, people have to be tough, to not permit and allow Obama in his viewpoint of failure policy.

Otherwise, don’t expect your world will go fine by being worsened further by Obama.

**********

How did it come about that China can materialize to come to expand at this stage?

All came about by policies mismanagement, running the wrongful direction, using trade relation and protocol diplomacy from their very bad ideas of dong such.
That started by Clinton for a trial, was carried over by Bush by deliberately building Communist China and at present is orchestrated and directed by being worst of all time --- the Obama as of now.

People, Go Out There, Get Out There To Be Crusaders of the critical needed time, to do something and more, about Communism pushing against you because it is your life in the ultimatum that matters = Obama is your top enemy and the evil scoundrel .

PEOPLE, do you know you will face the serious crisis if you don't care?

PEOPLE, now that you know it , CAN YOU BE CRUSADERS --- INSTEAD OF ACCEPTING THE CORROSIVE COMMUNISM TO ERODE FREEDOM AWAY --- WHICH SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED FROM THE WORK OF WRONGFULNESS BY OBAMA AND BUSH?

BILL CLINTON SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT--- by calling partnership with China through trade relationship to see if human rights and freedom can be actualized there. Clinton did not have a blueprint that was workable -- None can change Communism whatsoever, while Communist countries can only change by themselves.

At any rate, the objective was only to see freedom would occur in China, not as much as it would be concerning the markets and trade economies.

If USA had not traded with China to the large degree, US people should have an employment rate less than 5% today, no or less trade debts (at most 100 billion comparing to today’s multi-trillion ) to China, national debts less than 5 trillion (comparing to today’s 15.8 trillion ), less household debts, and with good income salaries and wages for all work force.

Since it was to shuffle the goal only of making human rights improvement, but there has been seeing the human rights picture worsening in China all these years. Now the expansion of work done by Bush was awful by dumping human rights dialogue agenda by solely building the almost everything, from technology, cities in China, at the humiliation of free world and US people,
All they have been talking about is to see to the excelling of China Communism, to set against the freedom planet. Bush was a Communist-lover, as he went to China 6 times, by giving as much away.

Now the Communists from China have even been invited and flocked to US universities, such as Ivy League schools -- including Harvard, and big universities, just to see them gaining more and more the perimeter to set their feet with comfort, and to go back to build military against USA and freedom world.

It is no wonder that Communists find USA as their playground and paradise, while USA people are being doomed by Obama . Obama recently said,”Communists , come to USA “, and he would waive visa requirements. This would add on more loading burden of USA people and production. As long as this is the way of increasing burden to US productivity, there will be more people taking appetites of Communism.

So Obama would outcome his fantasy of thinking he could run US freedom away to expand the influence of Communism .

TRADE ECONOMIES with China HAS BEEN DISASTROUS FOR US PEOPLE.

But they can never figure out that human rights agenda has shown failure as well so far.

All THAT they started that trial and experiment with China was wrong.

It has led to this time of period so much falling into the endangerment and destruction of free world economies instead, by so doing FURTHERING by Obama
Now people, you are facing the expansion of Chinese Communism by the enactment from Obama, which can potentially tear your world apart if you are not watching.

People, what are you going to do about it?

Did Obama Pay a Lower Rate Than His Secretary?
by Keith Koffler on April 13, 2012, 12:00 pm
Updated 1:10 pm ET
President Obama paid a total federal tax rate in 2011 on adjusted income of $789,674 that may be lower than that of his secretary, even though she earned substantially less.
Obama has spent the past week touting the Buffett Rule, which calls on those who make $1 million – just a little more than Obama made – to pay at federal tax rate of at least 30 percent. The rule was inspired by Buffett’s comment that he paid a lower tax rate than his secretary.
The most recent information about salary regarding Obama’s secretary is for his former secretary, Katie Johnson, who is listed by the White House as having made $90,000 in 2010.
According to Wikipedia, Johnson is 31 years old and now attends Harvard Law School. I don’t know about her personal life or what her deductions would be, so I can’t assume any children or extra deductions.
On a $90,000 salary, she would pay $16,578 in federal taxes,$3,780 to Social Security, and $1,305 in Medicare taxes.
That adds up to a total federal tax burden of $21,663 on $90,000 in adjusted gross income, or a tax rate of 24 percent.
Obama’s federal income tax rate was 20.5 percent. If you include the Medicare and Social Security taxes paid by Obama, his total federal tax liability is 21.8 percent, fully two percent less than that of his secretary even though his adjusted gross income was nearly nine times hers.
You're desperate, Sixboob.
Obama gave generously to charities, while Rick Santorum, God's gift to holier-than-thou borschtbelting, gave about 1%.
As for Mitt (what dog?) Romney, he paid under 15% in taxes. All in all, Obama looks pretty good here.

Mitt Romney and Ann wont give you there tax returns.. to rich..and they want MORE tax CUTs.
Wake up You so called Republicans you ar ebeing Screwed by REPUBLICANS.

More Tax Cuts for The VERY RICH REPUBLICANS;

Taxes are never popular, especially in April of an election year. But the Republicans’ latest effort to tilt the tax code in favor of the wealthy, and starve the government of needed revenue, is particularly cynical.

More Help for the Wealthy




This week, the House Republican leadership is expected to bring up the “Small Business Tax Cut Act,” a bill to let most business owners deduct up to 20 percent of their business income in 2012 — a $46 billion tax cut. Despite the Mom-and-Pop label, it is designed so that nearly half of the tax cut would go to people with annual income over $1 million, and more than four-fifths would go to those making over $200,000, according to the Tax Policy Center.

The bill’s proponents, led by Majority Leader Eric Cantor, say that lower taxes would lead to more hiring. But the economic reality is that employers, big and small, are hesitant to hire because of slow or uncertain demand for their products and services, not because of their tax burden. And companies would receive the tax cut even if they did not hire new workers — making it a windfall, not an incentive.

The bill is predicated on an overly broad definition of “small business”— one with fewer than 500 employees, which can include multimillion-dollar partnerships and corporations. It is also based on a willful denial of the reality that small businesses are not the big job creators politicians often say they are.

If “small” were set at 50 employees, small businesses would be credited with creating less than a third of the new jobs over the last 20 years. And many such jobs are soon lost as small businesses struggle or fail. The best way to encourage their success is with continued government spending to support demand and by building a well-regulated banking system that is not prone to the busts that devastate small businesses.

As for the broader economy, the Congressional Budget Office analyzed 13 policies last year for their potential impact on economic growth and job creation in 2012 and 2013. The option of a business tax cut along the lines of the Cantor bill ranked next to last in bang for the buck. More effective options include fiscal aid to states and increased safety net spending, which create jobs by bolstering consumer demand — and which Republicans fiercely oppose.

Another immediate step Congress could take to create demand and jobs would be for House Republicans to drop their objections and reauthorize the highway bill, at least for two years, as the Senate has done. That would help private-sector contractors and suppliers, as well as government workers, boosting local businesses in areas where jobs are created. Extending the research and development tax credit would also help some businesses, but Senate Republicans have blocked that.

The business tax cut for not-so-small businesses will almost certainly pass the House. Senate Democrats have introduced a tax relief bill that is linked specifically to companies hiring new employees. They should stick with that. This doesn’t mean that the tax system doesn’t need fixing. It does. In the Senate this week, the Democratic leadership will make an argument for more fairness, by calling for a vote on the Buffett Rule. It would require the wealthiest taxpayers to pay at least 30 percent of their income in federal taxes and, in the process, raise some $47 billion over 10 years. Republican senators are expected to block the vote. When you mail your taxes this week, think about that.

SUBJECT:_____How has it been going so far?

The Iraq matter is finished.

Reasonable people are not going to indulge on Iraq any more. If Iraq government crumbles, that is about it, as people are not going into Iraq again.
There seems to be no end of Iraq, so is all done with.

All people should blame Obama because Obama and Biden even said mission accomplished when pulling out of Iraq --- that meant they also approved occupation of Iraq, for that was what Bush wanted--(occupation and then withdraw later.) It is discredited about Iraq for Obama as much as Bush.

Normal people should concentrate on the serious failures on issues and matters regarding China.

The China policy has been the greater weight of damages and destruction than the Iraq case.

This is owing to the fact Bush had built China against freedom people’s wills, by using resources and technology by escalating to over-degree of higher unacceptable national and trade debts.
The building of Communist China goes on, and is being carried over, more than Bush did , by Obama --- this is wrongful of Obama.
Obama is actually Bush, as Obama cannot and would not undo Bush did, but continues with same Bush programs

(It is not true when people say Obama does good from ruins of what Bush did. However, Obama had made all worse, in the economy and many matters, being destructive more than Bush, in terms of economic growth, national , trade and household debts, overall average employment --- very bad, more than 8.3 % now to high of 9.8% for so many months from Obama , inflation and wages.)

Today what people are facing is the alarming of the uprising of Communist China to focus on --- done wrongly and immorally by Obama and Bush, border management, and affordable health care fair for all.

Obama invites China’s influence to partake to make USA to diminish on the global stage and make freedom people suffer.

As Obama carries on the same position of China policy more than Bush did , tries to destruct more, in economies with the lowering of standards in education, freedom cultures, so that people like it or not, have to get the intake of poisonous ideology of Marxism Communism.

Obama is the bigger-lover of Communism, the bigger national, trade and household debt-builder, the bigger borrower, the bigger invitation of Communists to endanger the Pentagon in national security and foreign policy beyond economics, than Bush.

As national security and foreign policy (while Obama is doing these in destructive way ) feed the appetites of seasonal interests of men in particular all the time, Romney people have to elaborate more and be having a tough image, keep going to sustain and increase more voters in these aspects.

As women voters look for free choice rights, Romney people need to ascertain that although abortion is not encouraged , provision of support would be available due to women‘s unexpected circumstances, including maternal matters .

Romney has to make sure that free speech and freedom rights of speech are vital to the educated society progress , than listening to a trivial word ’slut’---kept mentioning by Obama ---- this would cause damages than good. Further more, in order to ensure getting women votes, it has to link to criticize and denote Obama people insulting stay-home mothers by their naming Romney‘s wife.

It is outrageous that Obama is whether a Muslim, trying to fake in false pretending to be a Christian, by talking about Mormons instead, as Obama feels so guilty of .

That is good tentatively for Romney people to go ahead to get some work done, in addition to selecting a running mate, in order to win the election.

It is time to forbid large Communism spreading to the free world.

It is not according to the way how you think what this world will be and appear to be as such.

Since Clinton and Bush periods, Chinese Communism has expanded rapidly from its military to the economics --jumping from below the 10th position today’s second spot.

Through their faults and failures , and including this Obama who is making greater endangerment and troubles, the future of freedom people ways of lives and existence are in imminent danger.

All people have to be obligated with indoctrination and back-bone responsibilities by having conscious awareness to do more of the necessary matters to proceed with the strict policies and toughness to go forward to the future.

It is your life --you must care.

Otherwise, continuing with doing nothing about it, with don’t-care attitude, don’t underestimate it will be a gloomy world for you all.
