The GOP campaign to erase all social services while paying virtually no taxes rolls relentlessly forwards. Romney released last year’s taxes after not taking all his deductions because he wanted it to show him paying at least 14% of his income whereas normally, he pays just 9% in taxes. Both are ridiculously low and totally legal since the very rich have rigged the rules so they pay virtually no taxes and can park nearly all their profits overseas while importing their goods to our country which they use as their muscle for enforcing international deals.
The Romney Richie Rich campaign gets another blow as the top advisor departs to become a bank lobbyist: Pawlenty to step down as national co-chair of Romney’s presidential campaign to take job at bank lobbying group | Mail Online
As the industry’s top lobbyist, Pawlenty will play a major role in the industry’s efforts to make new Dodd-Frank rules, which Congress passed in 2010 in response to the 2007-2009 financial crisis, more favorable for Wall Street as regulators implement the law…The Financial Services Roundtable represents 100 integrated financial services companies and accounts for $92.7 trillion in managed assets, $1.2 trillion in revenue, and 2.3 million jobs, according to the group.
The two-term ex-governor of a Democratic-leaning state was on Arizona Sen. John McCain’s short list for the vice presidential spot in 2008.
All the libertarians who were against the ‘banksters’ should vote against the GOP to punish it. Yes, this means voting for Democrats who are partially owned by bankers. But the GOP is not only owned by them, it actively embraces their many crimes. Enthusiastically. So, by punishing the GOP by voting for pro-choice/anti-discrimination of women Democrats, the libertarians can free themselves of the taint that covered Ron Paul. That is, Paul is anti-civil rights and anti-women controlling their own sex lives.
I don’t expect any libertarians to do this, of course. They could, of course, fight hard for the alternate third party candidates. But the local libertarians around my home are not doing this. They still think Ron Paul, a man who has basically disappeared after flying off in his private plane, is the man. Meanwhile, the remaining Democrats who have something to say about this mess are at it again: Senate accuses Microsoft and HP of avoiding billions in taxes by shifting assets overseas | Mail Online
U.S.-based companies can avoid taxes on much money earned abroad by asserting that they have invested those funds offshore or plan to do so. Executives of both Microsoft and HP said they have complied with American tax laws
Of course, they complied with our laws which they happened to write, themselves! Everything they do is perfectly legal and they pay a lot of money during elections and hiring Congress critters after they leave office, to insure that they get this legal protection. This is why the Supreme Court ruling negating nearly all previous election laws forbidding funds this way is so very destructive.
The lack of any regulation is coupled with the ending of the equal time act which meant no one could make any sort of lie or defamation on TV without also giving exactly the same amount of time for the victim to answer. I used the equal time act several times to appear on major TV in NYC in the past. This was a great tool for people who are fighting the power structure which is why they got rid of it as fast as they could.
As for the fanatics at the retrograde churches supporting the GOP: Mormon church threatens to excommunicate member who criticized Romney. Beware of Trojan horses! The GOP also spent a huge amount of effort convincing white people that the darker skinned half-white guy in the White House is a secret Muslim. Meanwhile, secretive religious factions running the GOP do all sorts of creepy things without blinking an eye. The gang at the top of the GOP also used the Hasbra tool (many advisors are Israelis) telling white church goers that the Taliban are going to take over and take away women’s rights. Even though this Taliban are the white Christians, themselves, in the GOP.
Clinging to the GOP as their ship sinks, whites, especially in the former Confederate states, see their lives in full decline. It is so horrible now, their Life Expectancy for Less Educated Whites in U.S. Is Shrinking – NYTimes.com
Researchers have long documented that the most educated Americans were making the biggest gains in life expectancy, but now they say mortality data show that life spans for some of the least educated Americans are actually contracting. Four studies in recent years identified modest declines, but a new one that looks separately at Americans lacking a high school diploma found disturbingly sharp drops in life expectancy for whites in this group…By 2008, life expectancy for black women without a high school diploma had surpassed that of white women of the same education level, the study found…White men lacking a high school diploma lost three years of life.
These are the people being told Obamacare is evil and dangerous. They are increasingly drug addicts. They have no hope for any sane future and live increasingly depressed lives and the barrier between themselves and the despised races who are considered inferior to them are merging. That is, they are all becoming ‘niggers’. This derogatory term applies totally.
During the Civil War, the poor whites of the south were terrified of losing their privileged position vis a vis slaves. Of course, the slaves displaced them so they were made poorer and poorer because they were competing with labor that cost less and the laborers could be severely beaten if they didn’t perform! Being able to spit on the slaves while walking around proudly in rags was the last vestige of power of the southern poor whites. And they clung to this power for a long, long time during the Jim Crow years.
Now, they are still petted and praised by rich bankers from the northern states who use their votes quite cynically so they can expand the power of the rich elites who look down on them as fools, sheep to be fleeced, as people to be conned with lies about say, medical care overseas which is so superior to the US system.
Enough of the US insanity! Our endless wars against Muslims are backfiring and we are going bankrupt because of this and it isn’t even a campaign issue with anyone, not even the ‘Muslim’ in the White House who is a Christian. In Europe, as it collapses, desperate governments seek to tax the rich and this means attacking all the bank havens starting with the Swiss Banks Which Stand to Lose Hundreds of Billions.
The hunt is on! The states must survive and taxing the poor doesn’t cut it. They must tax the rich and the rich are quite slippery, they will move from place to place seeking somewhere to hide their wealth. Meanwhile, the systems that protect them all staggers towards bankruptcy. Eventually, all of these dictatorships and screwed up ‘democracies’ that protect the very rich will become a machine to seek them out and not tax them but eliminate them all.
The #1 place where this has been stalled out nearly totally is Japan. Japan isn’t seeking to tax the rich at all. Japan’s Next Leader Faces One of World’s Toughest Jobs – Bloomberg
A case in point would be to approve plans by Masayoshi Son, the billionaire chief executive officer of Softbank Corp., to spend about $1 billion building 10 giant solar farms. They are snarled in red tape, sending a dispiriting message to other would-be investors at a time when Japan needs lots of alternatives to nuclear power.
Noda’s biggest failing, in our view, is a lack of vision and imagination. He won kudos for doubling Japan’s consumption tax to 10 percent to pay down public debt. Yet raising taxes on a population traumatized by two decades of economic drift and last year’s earthquake was taking the easy road. It’s a quicker route, certainly, than shaking up a change-resistant economic and political system. It’s about time Japan’s leaders choose the road less taken.
Prime minister from 2001 to 2006, Junichiro Koizumi was the closest thing Japan has had in decades to an economic reformer. He reduced wasteful public-works spending, put deregulation on the table and privatized the vast postal system, which ran the world’s biggest savings bank.
So, it is brave to double taxes on the poor! HAHAHA. Poor Richie Rich Japan! As the billionaires have money to throw around, they have to double the sales tax on the poor. Typical. This is exactly the system the US is copying. Bigger and bigger government deficits, lots of warmonger talk and imperialist gestures coupled with reduction of services to the masses and higher taxes on the lowest levels while billionaires complain they can’t build solar farms.
Note that none of these clowns offer to put solar panels on every roof! In the US, this is also not encouraged. They always talk about huge, disgusting solar ‘farms’ that cause more ecological problems whereas, using existing roofs and letting the homeowners keep the energy profits is the last thing these guys want.
The economic war with China is taking its toll in Japan as China tightens customs inspections for Japanese products. Japan exports Chinese-made goods to the US and pockets the profits while the China statistics with US trade looks really bad. The US corporations do this, too. Then, they tell the Chinese they are evil for exporting to the US. This is why they park their money overses: to invest in China, for example, and then import into the US. This is what is not being debated during this election.
As Japan reels from trade war with China which is now actively attacking Japanese interests deep inside of China, we have Fukushima continuing to destroy Japan from within: 告発2 – YouTube
He was given a pre-filled resume to use that claimed he had previous nuclear experience that he did not have.
They attended a 1 day seminar as the extent of their radiation safety training.
They were misinformed that exposure to 1mSv of radiation would “go back to zero” in 8 days.
He was told he would be checking in/out equipment and doing radiation survey.
His actual work involved changing the agitator in the Areva decontamination system (high dose work).
He was told this high dose work was the same as the exposure other workers at the plant received daily.
There are many 18-19 year old workers at the plant.
The workers being rounded up to do dangerous work are young males. Their reproductive systems take a hammering and they will be increasingly unable to have children who aren’t deformed in some way and they also will have health problems later in life.
They are lied to about the dangers, of course. If this is true, it should be investigated by it isn’t being investigated because the government of Japan is more interested in some uninhabited islands and doesn’t give a damn about the Japanese underclass that is suffering so hideously under high taxes and poor services. When Chernobyl blew up, the Soviet rulers decided to use ‘human robots’ since mechanical robots broke down too fast, to clean up.
These ‘human robots’ were not robots, they were all real human beings with real feelings, not slaves. But they were treated like slaves and used and then discarded. Most of them have died due to the exposure. The callus treatment of citizens is a feature of more than one country. Countries that do this gain power and their rich get richer. So, while protecting themselves from dangers, they carelessly fling everyone else into the abyss to die. And they don’t care. Not at all.
