What truck has said and you do not seem to understand is; customers pay all the taxes-companies pay nothing. Hidden taxes are incorporated into final price of merchandise. What has been said many times is: No customer, no business, no taxes . Companies collect hidden taxes for the gov't.
A local employer, small restaurant, is on the verge of closing. His statement: Restaurant is doing a nice business, and everyone is making money but him. He stated; employees making fair wage; city, county, state and feds are getting good taxes; supplier get theirs, but after all of that is paid their is very little for me the owner. I think he will close soon.
As has been pointed out that the rich create jobs, this week when you go to your church service say a big prayer thanking the rich for all the jobs created.
A few posters here have strained trying to convince us that the poor create jobs and that gov't jobs create wealth. Gov't jobs bleed the economy.
Gov't jobs do not create wealth, they bleed the economy. In America today gov't employees average wages is over 25% higher than the average wage of the private sector. Corruption is rampant.
Global warming a myth or not, if there is a population explosion as stated we MUST increase food production dramatically. They estimate that now about 50 million people a day are starving. Increase population = increase starvation.
Since your major was the OT, you must know that God told Mose and Abraham that the max population for earth is just 2 billion. God said population = the number of stars they could see. Earth now has about 5 billion too many.
I remember reading a year or so ago what would happen if the country wealth were equally divided among all of the citizens. Think about it. 75% of the people spend their money just as soon as they get it. This leave 25% going to the people that know how to accumulate money. After about 1 year the country would be in just about the same situation as it is today. 1% would have the most with about 24% a reasonable accumulation. The poor would still be in that 75%.
The idiot reps that want to equalize income are nothing but dreamers. Ontop of that they do not want their income cut to equalize with the poor.
Dreamers and idiots abound.
I grew up in a strong union family, where the belief was the only way you could get a decent wage or benefits was through a union. And for years this was true. Since Obama was elected 6 years ago the need for union has become less, just about needless.. There is no need to organize your employees, for what? The gov't is mandating even infant employers to provide all of the benefits that the union used to work for. A big plus with unions falling away: no union dues.
Sick leave is a benefit that unions are supposed to fight for. BO is mandating all companies have at least 7 days sick leave. As some one said before: Who needs unions? Gov't mandates wages and benefits.
Good by unions. No more union dues to be paid for nothing.
Why? You \elected reps to have loop holes in the tax law. You can use the same loop holes when you file your taxes. Just like as associate that owns 250 acres + a great house, pays less real estate tax than another associate that owns a lot and a mediocre house. 250 acres is a farm so he says... About all he does is mows to keep the weeds down.
What you idiots are doing is: denying that religion is a personal matter, as it should be.
Regardless of your religious belief, Christian, Islamic, jewish, etc and etc, you are supposed to keep it to your self. Idiots want every one to believe the same way. Many idiots are ready to kill you if you do not believe the same as they do. Just look at what the radicals are doing around the world, killing the infidels. Shame, shame and a shame.
Here's a thought. Gates and Buffet give zillions to charity. It creates 0 jobs. Once the poor eat the gift and have a full belly, tomorrow they are back again with an empty belly. Poverty is not reduced. MO
America is the only country with freedom of speech and freedom of religion. We are rapidly losing much of it. Rush, Hannity, et al have made it a point out of fear not to say anything anti islam for fear of getting on its hit list. You may remember Salmone Rushdie, his words put him on the hit list and he has been in hiding for years.
Remember, food stamps are given to those individuals who monthly income is below a given amount and the number of individuals in the home..... You must draw lines somewhere.
Military families will be eligible for food stamps based on the same guide lines of income and family size. I did look up the income for enlisted persons. A new private's salary is about $1,700/month plus benefits.. The salary goes up all the way to 30 year service man and the top income is over $9,000/month.
I remember when I was in the Air Force, starting pay was $67.50/month plus benefits.......
Just like any job before you accept it you need to check out what it has to offer.
As some one mentioned collusion. Who approves executive compensation? B of D's. Who is most responsible for the app't of the executives? B of D's. Who is most responsible for the appointment of the B of D's members? The CEO. Ground very ripe for corruption/collusion.
Doesn't it appear there is a lot of "I'll scratch your back, you scratch mine".
Stock holders should be up in arms for the corruption that takes place between upper mgt and the B of D's .MO.
Remember mikey, you elected the libs that wanted to take care of the doo-less. Don't complain.
As some one said, "Americans are not stupid, they will not work if they do not have to". Down through the years they have faught for a short work week; long vacations; lots of sick leave; lots of holidays; long lunches, long morning and afternoon breaks, etc, etc and etc.
So mikey, stop complaining.
What's your point? Over half the world then sleeps above ground. Only about 1 % of the world population looks up into the sky to see what goes on there. So what?
How long does it take for welfare laws to update to catch up with the different state and gov't increased minimum wage laws.????? We know that todays minimum wage $7.25/hr is defined as poverty income for a family and they are eligible for benefits..
