    Very simple products shouldn't go up, the mfg would not be withholding & matching taxes which would let the employee take home the full amount. But the tax would be added in at retail, there shouldn't be a tax on groceries & medicine.
    Co Jet cost 15 million tax @ 20% tax = 3 million that is no more free rides.
    20 million home @ 20 % = 4 million tax
    100K home @ 20 % = 20K tax
    I believe it is the only fair way. No IRS, NO LOBBYIST

    According to the Environmental Working Group, Arkansas farmers received more than $2 billion in direct payments from the federal government between 1995 and 2011, half of which was for rice production. Riceland Foods and Producers Rice Mill, the first- and second-largest recipients of federal subsidies in the state, received over $868 million in subsidies during the same period.

    China EPA isn't working? What is happening? Our jobs are moving to China.

  • Answer:
    None. No currency in the world can be exchanged or is backed by gold, since the Bretton Woods accord made in 1972.

    There are however, some countries that mint gold coins (named gold bullion) that can be purchased at some numismatic shops:

    United States
    South Africa

    The USA economy has been in reverse for 5 years now. Less jobs, less total payroll, smaller GDP, that isn't gain.

    When they and Democratic legislators failed to prevent passage of Act 10, they tried to defeat — with a scurrilous smear campaign that backfired — an elected state Supreme Court justice. They hoped that changing the court’s composition would get Walker’s reforms overturned. When this failed, they tried to capture the state Senate by recalling six Republican senators. When this failed, they tried to recall Walker. On the night that failed — he won with a larger margin than he had received when elected 19 months earlier — he resisted the temptation to proclaim, “This is what democracy looks like!”

    Goog This Cavuto! Wonder what the President thinks about FOX news now

    Good for Cavuto! Wonder what the President thinks about FOX news now? Gotta watch this short video; somebody finally got some guts to stand up. Wow, I can't believe that Fox News had the guts to do this. It's about time!

    Wonderful, it should be played every day till the American public wakes up. If you are not a regular watcher of Fox News (especially during the daytime hours), then you may have missed this REPORT by Neil Cavuto. This is an excellent response to the contradictory occupant of the White House. Takes only a moment to watch. You'll want to send it on to others who have meaningful things going on in the daytime.

    Some of the ones on this board in 2008 and 2012 that told us how great liberalism - socialism would be for this country are now trying to say Obama changed !!!!!!! On what?
    1. Obama's Father Wrote About Socialism
    2. Obama's Parents Met in a Russian Class (Back then it was the Communist USSR)
    3. Obama's Teen Mentor was Frank Marshall Davis (a known CPUSA member)
    4. Obama's Brother Roy and Cousin Odinga are Marxists
    5. Obama Attended Socialist Conferences at Cooper Union
    6. Obama Was Hand Picked by Alice Palmer to Succeed Her in the Illinois State Senate - Nine years before Palmer picked Obama to be her successor, she was the only African-American journalist to travel to the Soviet Union to attend the 27th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union
    7. Obama's Run for the Illinois State Senate was Launched by a Fundraiser Organized at Bill Ayers' and Bernardine Dorhn's Chicago Home
    8. Obama Had a Close Relationship with the "Anti-Capitalist" Group ACORN
    9. Obama Attended Several Meetings with the Democratic Socialists in Chicago and Was even Endorsed by Them
    10. Obama Endorsed Openly Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders -Sanders is the first self-described socialist to be elected to the U.S. Senate
    11. The Communist Party USA Endorsed Obama

    Now let's see what someone else had to say about the democrats, as a whole:

    The Socialist Party candidate for President of the US, Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 speech:
    “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”
    Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884-December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.
