One Nation Under GOD

                                                                                                                                              This has been a very trying week for me.

                                                                                                So excited about the news from President Barack Obama that Osama Bin Laden is finally dead.

I don’t usually get excited about a “Murder” because that was what it was.. but I know how GOD feels about sin and the people who continue to blasphemy his Holy name.
So I was happy that again the bad guy loses and all is right in GOD’s Universe.
Have you noticed that no matter the situation or movie the bad guys always gets it in the end!
Then the mess came out about..”Is he really Dead” and if he is DEAD then they should show the body!
I am really irritated about this whole debate.
Has anyone ever seen Hitler’s Body? Ok.. how about Attila the Hun??
We don’t even think about seeing them because guess what… they are DEAD!
Here we go again with a Republican Donald Trumpism.. where is the Birth Certificate???
Get a grip and get a clue!
Mr. Trump…where is your real hair??
Now you Trump  can spend his time on more important unsolved matters like… where the hell is Tupac and Biggie?
 
Come on people.. It is Mr. Bush that said that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that were proven to not be there.
A war to capture Hussein for some reason, was on the way and the American public believed it hook line and sinker.
 
We have to be a people, a country that believes that the office of President will not call a press conference to make a bold face lie to the American people.
We have to be a nation that does not take this opportunity to divide the country into people who think he is dead and people who do not think he is dead..
 
why… FOR RATINGS!!
FOR   POLITICAL  ADVANTAGE!!
 
The Republicans have no one to run in 2012. They have no one that can beat President Barack Obama so here they go again with the Divisive Tactics.
The same Tactics that have worked in the past to confuse the American People.
No more.. we need answers on topics of great importance.
How about…JOBS.. EDUCATION..DEFICIT..HEATH CARE..NEW ENERGY
 
Can we all get on the same page for once.
We need answers on real problems and we need a country a leadership that can lead us into the next century.
Perhaps two parties are too much for our country??
 
I know we need to trim the Government and get the spending dow.
I know we need to raise the taxes on the rich to Clinton 2000 years.
We know those two need to happen to have a chance in making it to another generation.
In history ALL great nations fall!!
They fall because of stupidity, selfishness and Power Struggles
 
Are we going to have the same fate? Or are we finally going to create a nation that can live together in peace and harmony
Perhaps I am asking more than we are able to do.
But I have always been told, that if you ask.. you can receive..
 
WE can do this anything is possible.
 
I still believe we are an Amazing nation!

Today the Mega Millions Loto is $312 Million Dollars.

Can you believe it?? We’ll this lottery has given me the passion to write again. The last time I was this fired up.. Barack Obama was becoming our 1st ( Not Last ) African American President. I am still a huge  Obama fan and supporter, and next year is going to be no cake walk. Especially if the economy remains in the dumps like it is.

The truth of the matter is… what can one poor non suspecting slunk do with that much money.

The odds of winning are..and I like 5 Million to 1.. and people still play.

Yea.. let’s let 1 person get $312 Milllion in an American where the rich keep getting richer and the poor get stumped on!!

The middle class is disappering right before our eyes..

Wouldn’t it be better to make 312 new millionaires today. Today we could change 312 peoples lives…

Why should 1 person get the opportunity of a life time.

Imagine the families of the 312 members.. Imagine all the money in places all over the country that could get impacted by that one change in the system.

I don’t think 1 person would even know what to do with all that money, and imagine if Hitler one that money..

This Lottery system is suppose to support education.. but in fact it supports who? and where is the money for all the effort?

Let more people win.. and let’s do something right for a change.

So often we make the wrong choice..

We can not afford the Republican BUSH Tax Cuts

 There is a huge “Debate” on weather the National Crippling Bush Tax Cuts should be Continued?  

What in the world is the “Debate” Why does everyone forget that this country was in a SURPLUS at the End of the Democratic Clinton Administration.  

 Has the Right Controlled Media using some kind of Brain Washing machine to erase memories? Or is it just that American is the Racist Country that the world thinks we are, and they just don’t want President Barack Obama to be President. There is no arguement that makes any type of since that would make a right thinking person believe that that we continue the Tax Cuts put in place by President Bush.  

In fact,  

“By the end of the Reagan-Bush 12-year “revolution,” the extra debt they had piled on the country was costing the country an extra 2.6% of GDP in interest—$300 million a day. Without that interest working against him, Clinton would have paid down the debt much faster. That’s why the green-line goes down so fast in the Clinton years. That’s what would have happened without the Reagan-Bush interest burden.”
“Now if W. Bush had held the line almost as well as all presidents before Reagan, the national debt would have been only 9% of GDP, and the country would have been ready to pull itself out of the Great Recession with ease.”
Of course the rich loved this “theory” and fed the press many story about the wonders of the new supply-side “economics” (cooked up by Laffer, as a graduate student). Money talks, and a lot of people listened. It’s time to rethink what radical conservative have done and are doing to our country. The Reagan-Bushes National Debt now totals $10.1 trillion by a most conservative estimate. That’s the lions share of our present debt.

 Again, the LIONS SHARE of our National Debt came because of the Nation Crippling Reagan-Bush Tax Cuts.  

WE CAN NO LONGER AFFORD THE BUSH TAX CUTS.. THEY ARE CRIPPLING OUR NATION  

There is no debate that the economic formula that President Clinton used was the correct one, and President Bush had not reason or precedent to change the Tax code.  

The only saying is “If it ain’t broke, why fix it”  

So why did President Bush try to fix something that wasn’t broken??????????  

Also,  

President Bush even showed that he understood the importance of returning the country back to prosperity by putting a direct END to the Tax Cuts.   

Now, get this:  

Back in 2001, when the first set of Bush tax cuts was rammed through Congress, the legislation was written with a peculiar provision — namely, that the whole thing would expire, with tax rates reverting to 2000 levels, on the last day of 2010.  

Why would he put into to law that at the end of 2010, the tax rates were to revert back to the levels of 2000? Why would he change the law “for the better”, just to change the law back to the laws that ” were not working”  

What’s at stake here? According to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, making all of the Bush tax cuts permanent, as opposed to following the Obama proposal, would cost the federal government $680 billion in revenue over the next 10 years. For the sake of comparison, it took months of hard negotiations to get Congressional approval for a mere $26 billion in desperately needed aid to state and local governments.  

Cost the Federal Government $680 Billion in revenue over the next 10 years? Are you serious?????  

We would have to get that revenue somewhere else right? If you make $20,000 a year, and your bills are $20,000 but you away $5,000 don’t you have to get that “deficit” from somewhere?  

We can’t  borrow it, so what will the US do? Do a Monetary Correction and continue to De-Value the Dollar. That is what will happen.  

For what? Do give the richest individuals in America an additional estimated $3 Million in savings?  

That are supposed to magically filter down to the rest of the working class. KEEP DREAMING!  

  

This Economy was inherited by the Obama Administration.  

I really am not sure if any of the cuts should be continued.  

I remember the economy back in the Clinton Administration and it felt pretty good.  

I would give up my tax break if the economy could be restored to that level.  

I am not rich.. but I would be willing to give up my Middle Class cut to get back to a time when not just individuals are prosperous but the whole country was experiencing an incredible economic euphoria.  

Let the Tax cuts end.. let them end and let’s never let that happen again.  

Be Inspired!  

Until Next Time,

Big Tech Hoarding Cash

What in the world is Big Tech Doing with such a large War Chest? With that much money on hand why arent’t they hiring people. The buzz on the street is that the Big Tech’s are trying to position themselves for a nasty season of Take Overs in the next 2 years. While Big Tech sits on there laurels with all that cash on hand. The Un-Educated publicc thinks that all the Policy Reform  that the Barack Obama Administration Initiated did not work. The Tea Party and the Republican party both are crying wolf as loud as they can that the Presidnent is doing nothing to help the American people. Give me a break! You have got to be kidding me. Instead of helping American revover from the Great Recession, corporate america should be doing there part just like Governement did theres. With the unemployment rate in August at 9.5%, we need coporate America to start hiring back some of the 1,000 that were laid off during the worst of the recession. We also need the banks to loosen the guidelines so that they can start lending money to small busineses that continue to have difficulty getting loans to start and continue in business. This county is healthy when both Big and Small business are doing there parts in hiring employees. President Barack Obama has only been in office for less than 2 years and has delivered some of the most aggressive reforms that Government has passed in two decades. Finally we have a President that knows exactly what he is doing and that has this country in the right direction. Clinton was the last Great President that got this country to incredible years of surplus. Once Obama gets Health Care and the Financial Sector under Control. He will have to cut spending by geetting rid of the fat in the Public Sector. If we can spend $21,000 per household which matches the spending livel that Clinton achieved in his term, this country will not only get out of the Great Recession, but get back to surplus and economic prosperity for all.

It is about time that the Capitalist Pigg banks get a talkin to!

“The Goldman CEO sLloyd Blankfein acknowledges Goldman Sachs role in the financial crisis and explains how Wall Street and Main Street can recover together.”

Nooooo duhhhh! Are you kidding me?

Of course you were behind the potential ruin of the Great US of A! You lined your pockets and invested in Dubai and let the little people fend for themselves. Isn’t this the way it always goes? The rich get richer and the poor get sh****d on! I do not cuse often by this really gets my goat.

The rich, the real rich top 1%, do not care about the other 95% that they have more money than. They only care about PROFIT! Is this suppose to be a democracy or a Monarchy! I can not believe that they are not all in jail.

When is enough ever enough! Let’s talk Wall Street REFORM! Let’s talk about it and debate it and then legislate it!

We were on the break on disaster and if it was not for the incredible actions of the Great President Obama, and his incredible team at the Fed. We would all be speaking Chinese and making Nike’s for a living.

I want my dream to happen and there are millions of people like me that need a honest banking system to make it happen. I know I just said an oxymoron honest:Banking but that is what this country really needs.

To big to FAIL! These banks are so big that they choose who FAILS! Let’s change this and have a better life for the next generation.

Middle Class Tax Share Set to Rise
Studies Say Burden Of Rich to Decline
by Dana Milbank and Jonathan Weisman
  
Three successive tax cuts pushed by President Bush will leave middle-income taxpayers paying a greater share of all federal taxes by the end of the decade, according to new analyses of the Bush administration’s tax policies.
As critics of the tax cuts in 2001, 2002 and 2003 have noted, the very wealthiest Americans — those earning $337,000 or more per year — will be the greatest beneficiaries of the changes in the nation’s tax laws. And, as administration officials have argued, low-income taxpayers will also enjoy a disproportionately lighter tax burden.


Conservatives and liberals alike agree that Bush’s tax policies have shifted more of the tax burden to the middle class.

 

The result is that a broad swath of lower-middle, middle- and upper-middle-income people, as well as some rich Americans, will carry a greater share of the federal tax burden after the laws passed in the past three years are fully implemented. While taxes are scheduled to decline for all income groups, those earning more than $28,000 but less than $337,000 will end up paying a greater share of the taxes than they did before the changes.

The findings, by two groups that have been critical of the Bush administration’s tax policies, add a new wrinkle to the increasingly contentious debate over the fairness of Bush’s tax policies and which income groups would benefit most.

Liberal groups have argued that the Bush administration is penalizing the poor while rewarding the rich. In part to answer those critics, Republicans have targeted the poor with expanded tax refund checks for families with children, a new 10 percent tax bracket and a larger earned-income credit for married couples who are poor.

The result may be a surprise to both sides: By the end of the decade, the middle class will be picking up a greater share of the government’s tab.

“It’s hard to get a lot of progressivity at the very top,” said R. Glenn Hubbard, the architect of Bush’s most recent tax cut proposal and a former chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers. By slashing taxes on dividends, capital gains and inheritances, the cuts ensure that tax burdens will no longer rise consistently with income, as they would with a perfectly “progressive” system. “But,” Hubbard added, “we’ve very much retained progressivity overall because so much money was dumped into the bottom rates.”

The two studies focused on separate issues. Citizens for Tax Justice examined the percentage changes in total federal taxes that would be paid by different income groups through 2010. The Tax Policy Center, jointly run by the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute, looked at the share of federal taxes that would remain for the various groups once those changes are fully phased in. But the studies reached similar conclusions.

Citizens for Tax Justice found that for the lowest fifth of taxpayers — those earning below $16,000 — federal taxes would fall 10 percent between now and 2010, while federal taxes for those in the second quintile — earning between $16,000 to $28,000 — would fall 12 percent. At the other end of the scale, the decline for the top 1 percent of taxpayers — those making $337,000 and up — would be 15 percent.

In contrast, for taxpayers earning between $45,000 and $337,000, the decline would be 7 percent, less than half the cut reaped by the very wealthy.

Citizens for Tax Justice assumed that those provisions in the tax laws scheduled to expire before 2011 would expire as scheduled, although administration officials have said they are determined to make those changes permanent.

The Tax Policy Center assumed that all proposed tax cuts would become permanent. It found that the share of federal taxes paid by the top 1 percent of taxpayers would drop to 22.8 percent of the total in 2011, from 24.3 percent today, while the share paid by the lowest 40 percent would fall to 2 percent, from 2.2 percent.

All others would have a slightly larger proportion of the federal tax burden in 2011 than they do today. For families earning between $22,955 and $80,903, their share of federal taxes would rise from 25.5 percent to 26.1 percent.

Both groups included all federal income, payroll, corporate and estate taxes; Citizens for Tax Justice also included excise taxes.

Treasury Department officials said the studies are skewed because they include Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes, which the tax cuts did not seek to reduce. Pamela F. Olson, the assistant Treasury secretary for tax policy, said that if Social Security taxes are included, then Social Security benefits should also be measured. “Then you would have a very progressive system,” she said.

Instead, Olson pointed to the Treasury’s analysis of the impact of successive tax cuts on individual income taxes only. In that analysis, all taxpayers with less than $100,000 in income are shown to be paying a smaller percentage of their income in taxes than they did before Bush took office. Households earning $100,000 or more are now paying 73.3 percent of federal income taxes, up from 70 percent.

Figuring out whether tax policy benefits the wealthy or the poor is a hotly disputed subject. Liberals favor a progressive tax system in which households pay higher tax rates and a higher share of their total income as they climb up the income ladder. By that measure, the Bush tax cuts have made the tax code less progressive. By 2011, the poorest taxpayers’ after-tax income will have risen only 0.3 percent, according to the Tax Policy Center, while household income for the richest 1 percent of taxpayers will have jumped 8.6 percent.

Conservatives say the better measure is which group winds up paying a greater proportion of the tax burden after the tax cut. The rich may get the largest dollar benefit from the tax cuts, but the top 20 percent of households will still be paying 71.5 percent of all federal taxes in 2011.

Conservatives and liberals alike agree that Bush’s tax policies have shifted more of the tax burden to the middle class. Kevin Hassett, a conservative economist with the American Enterprise Institute, said it “makes complete sense” that this would happen as a result of Bush’s policies.

Changes such as the elimination of the estate tax and the reduction of the stock-dividend tax disproportionately benefit the wealthiest 1 percent, who have the largest amount of assets and capital. Those at the other end of the income spectrum benefit disproportionately from targeted tax cuts such as the child tax credit.

With the biggest gains going to the wealthiest and to low-income taxpayers, those in the middle inevitably get a higher tax burden because they don’t qualify for the targeted tax breaks that go to the poor or the investment-related tax breaks that go to the wealthy. “The middle class is predominantly labor income,” Hassett said.

Milton Friedman

(July 31, 1912 – November 16, 2006) was an American Nobel Laureate economist and public intellectual. He is best known among scholars for his theoretical and empirical research, especially consumption analysis, monetary history and theory, and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy.[1] A global public followed his restatement of a libertarian political philosophy that insisted on minimizing the role of government in favor of the private sector. As a leader of the Chicago School of economics, based at the University of Chicago, he had a widespread influence in shaping the research agenda of the entire profession. Friedman’s many monographs, books, scholarly articles, papers, magazine columns, television programs, videos and lectures cover a broad range of topics in microeconomics, macroeconomics, economic history, and public policy issues. The Economist hailed him as “the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century…possibly of all of it”.[2]

His views of monetary policy, taxation, privatization and deregulation informed the policy of governments around the globe, especially the administrations of Ronald Reagan in the U.S., Brian Mulroney in Canada, Margaret Thatcher in Britain, Roger Douglas in New Zealand, and Augusto Pinochet in Chile, and (after 1989) in Eastern Europe.

Greenspan, Bush 41 and Bush 43 are economic disciples of the Trickle Down Theory of Economics!

What a disaster! This economic theory almost destroyed a country!

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, that is the whole stance of the repubican welfare system. I can not even believe that McCain has the nerve of accuse Barack Obama of Socialism! Marxist Socialism!!

Espeically after the 750 Billion handout that McCain and Bush and all of their croonies are handing out to their pals on Wall Street!

This is the highest form of TREASON! 

Taking the hard working dollors of the American workers and giving the money to the very Rich and the people that caused the disaster to happen in the first place.

This failed economic theory has never worked. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I am thinking that they may have not planned for it to work in the first place. Now that they have lined their pockets with CASH, they are taking off with the CHINA!

I think the main reason that McCain and the Republican party want to win, is that they don’t want a full investigatin of what really happened on Wall Street!

If by the help of God we are able to do a full investigation, we will find out that the true crooks that are behind this disaster planned the whole thing, and will be found guilty of their crimes.

Then finally go to jail, the place >>>>>>> WHERE THEY ALL BELONG!!! <<<<<<<<<<<<<

Now I just don’t get it! We at MyDreamAlive.com are all about motivation and inspiration. We provide a line of clothing that moves people to be whatever they want to be. At MyDreamAlive.com we are for dreams and not against them.

But what about McCain!!

Why is McCain starting the name calling and offensive verbage towards Obama now?

What happened to the “Maverick” the “Change Hero”? I thought that he agreed that elections did not have to be won with mud slinging?

Perhaps it’s because he did not win the debate last Friday, and with the Economy in the tank, McCain is ready to try and discredit Obama any way he can.

Well we are not falling for it, are we? Why doesn’t McCain do everybody a favor and realize that America does not want 4 more of the last 8 years. See where the last 8 years have gotten us?

Is anyone out there as outranged as me? Where should politicians draw the line? They should be our inspiration!

Anyone Agree?
