Flash From The Past

Back in October 2009, I posted about how Rep Boehner could create jobs if he really wanted to. I'll repost my suggestions once again 2 years later. Take note, none of these have been done and we are still in an economic crisis.

Rep Boehner, if you really want to create jobs, then put in these changes.

* Place a one year freeze on Capital Gains taxes.
* Provide a one year moratorium on small-business and self-employment taxes.
* In addition to providing tax breaks for employees, reduce the taxes on employers. Reduce the top tax rate of 28, 33 and 35% down to 25%. Allow employers to keep more of their money so that they can AFFORD to employ more people.
* Eliminate or drastically reduce minimum wage requirement. Allow more young people to find employment - they have a 52% unemployment now.
* Implement a permanent 50% cut on corporate taxes. The US is the highest anywhere.
* Mandate that any pork spending be done one bill at a time.
* Mandate that any bill or spending measure can not have an amendment attached that is not related to the primary bill or spending measure.
* Make it illegal to give federal money to private companies (ie. subsidies, stimulus).
* Pass new laws making it unconstitutional, let alone illegal, for the federal government to take over and operate a private industry. (something tells me this is already illegal but no one wants to take a stand for some reason)
* Stop funding Arts and Science unless it is related to our national security.

With these options, you can really kick-start this economy. More so than providing federal funds to help stock vending machines. But, you have to have the guts to do what is right, not just what is expedient.

Time For A Change

I'm sorry, but its been a long while since I've posted. I've had another blog I posted on during the past year or so. And, I've also just lost my heart.

I've not really had the heart to post much this past year.

I've seen this country vote for more Socialism and elect a highly Socialist president. I've seen Congress go more Socialist and grab up more personal and state's rights. I've almost lost all hope for this country and its people.

We have people killing other people over consumerism crap. We have politicians selling their souls in order to retain power. We have governments selling out their citizens in order to increase its hold over personal liberties.

I've had barely enough energy to care any more as I see this country on a suicide slide.

But, if this coming election turns, I may be around more. But, if we elect another RINO and refuse to undo all the past horrible and illegal bills that have passed, my pessimism will be justified.
