I’d like to make you a business offer.

Seriously. This is a real offer. In fact, you really can’t turn me down, as you’ll come to understand in a moment…

Here’s the deal.

You’re going to start a business or expand the one you’ve got now. It doesn’t really matter what you do or what you’re going to do. I’ll partner with you no matter what business you’re in – as long as it’s legal.

But I can’t give you any capital – you have to come up with that on your own. I won’t give you any labor – that’s definitely up to you. What I will do, however, is demand you follow all sorts of rules about what products and services you can offer, how much (and how often) you pay your employees, and where and when  you’re allowed to operate your business. That’s my role in the affair – to tell you what to do.

Now in return for my rules, I’m going to take roughly half of whatever you make in the business each year. Half seems fair, doesn’t it? I think so. Of course, that’s half of your profits. You’re  also going to have to pay me about 12% of whatever you decide to pay your employees because you’ve got to cover my expenses for promulgating all of the rules about who you can employ, when, where, and how. Come on, you’re my  partner. It’s only “fair.”

Now… after you’ve put your hard-earned savings at risk to start this business, and after you’ve worked hard at it for a few decades (paying me my 50% or a bit more along the way each year), you might decide you’d like to cash out – to finally live the good  life. Whether or not this is “fair” – some people never can afford to  retire – is a different argument. As your partner, I’m happy for you to sell whenever you’d like… because our agreement says, if you sell, you have to pay  me an additional 20% of whatever the capitalized value of the business is at  that time.

I know… I know… you put up all the original capital. You took all the risks. You put in all of the labor. That’s all true. But I’ve done my part, too. I’ve collected 50% of the profits each year. And I’ve always come up with more rules for you to follow each year. Therefore, I deserve another, final 20% slice of the business.

Oh… and one more thing…

Even after you’ve sold the business and paid all of my fees… I’d recommend buying lots of life insurance. You see, even after you’ve been retired for years, when you die, you’ll have to pay me 50% of whatever your estate is worth.

After all, I’ve got lots of partners and not all of them are as successful as you and your family. We don’t think it’s “fair” for your kids to have such a big advantage. But if you buy enough life insurance, you can finance this expense for your children.

All in all, if you’re a very successful entrepreneur… if you’re one of the rare, lucky, and hard-working people who can create a new company, employ lots of people, and satisfy the public… you’ll end up paying me more than 75% of your income over your life. Thanks so much.

I’m sure you’ll think my offer is reasonable and happily partner with me… but it doesn’t really matter how you feel about  it because if you ever try to stiff me – or cheat me on any of my fees or  rules – I’ll break down your door in the middle of the night, threaten you and your family with heavy, automatic weapons, and throw you in  jail. That’s how civil society is supposed to work, right? This is Amerika, isn’t it?

That’s the offer America gives its entrepreneurs.  And the idiots in Washington wonder why there are no new  jobs…

Fox News Video Report on “Obama’s Lies,” Sends Left Into Frenzy. Watch it Here…Awesome !!!

 

 

Ya know when you’ve hit em where it hurts, by their reaction. Enjoy, Please Share; Well Done Fox !!!

All images are from the Fox News video and/or copied from the Barracuda Brigades Blogspot. Thanks again Barracuda!

Here’s the Youtube video.

 

 

 

 

Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday aired a scathing review of the first three years of President Barack Obama’s term in office, countering his “hope” and “change” motto with a series of “then and now” facts about the national debt, jobless rate, gas prices and more.

 

The Debt. Click for a larger image.

 

 

 

 

 

Number of folks on Food Stamps. Click for larger image.

 


 

“What sort of change have we really seen over the past four years from the Obama administration?” co-host Steve Doocy asked by way of introduction.

 

The four-minute clip is a mash-up of the president’s speeches over the last three-and-a-half years, matching his promises and statements with the reality of rising costs. Starting with the frenzied “O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA!” crowd chants of four years ago, it’s quickly replaced by ominous tones.

 

 

 

 

 

Gas Prices.

 

“I pledge to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office…All of us need to act more responsibly on behalf of a better economic future…Hope is the guiding force behind the most improbable changes this country has ever made,” Obama says, before his statements are countered with the national debt: “$10 trillion then“ and ”$15 trillion now.”

Beef Prices up 28%. Click for larger image

Bacon prices up 23.3%. Click for larger image.

“We cannot wait for good jobs and living wages and pensions…Jobs must be our number one focus…We know it’s time to create the good-paying jobs, jobs that pay well and cannot be outsourced,” he says, before the “then and now” jobless rate is highlighted: 7.8 percent then, 8.3 percent now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And if you look at the REAL Unemployment numbers, the U-6….. well, I’ll let the chart speak for itself.

Inheritance is the practice of passing on property, titles, debts, rights and obligations upon the death of an individual.

This tells the story of why Bush was so ‘BAD’ at the end of his term.

 

Don’t just skim over this, it’s not very long, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out!!! From REAL sources, not the Daily KOS / Huffington  Post /  Obama’s websites or other liberal sources.

 

The day the democrats took over was NOT January 22nd 2009, it was ACTUALLY January 3rd 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

 

The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

 

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault”, think about this:

 

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At that time:

 

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77

 

The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

 

The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

 

 

George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH

 

Remember the day… January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

 

 

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?

 

BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

 

 

Unemployment — to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

 

U6 Unemployment Chart. Click for larger image.


 Roughly 30% unemployment for the 1st quarter of 2012!

 

Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.

 

And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? That would be Barack Hussein Obama!


And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?

 

OBAMA and the Democrat Congress

 

So when someone tries to blame Bush..

 

 

 

REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…. THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!”

 

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.

 

 

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.

 

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

 

 

For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.

 

 

And where was Barack Hussein Obama during this time?


He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

 

 

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

 

 

Note the 2007 deficit on the chart. Then note the DRASTIC INCREASES starting in 2008. This belongs solely to the Democrats. Again, click for a larger image.

 

 

 

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is—

 

I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th 2009 when I took the office of the President of the United States.

 

 

 

There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it onward.

President Obama will skip Memorial Day

visit to Arlington National Cemetery

 

 

 

 

 

Washington Post Staff Writers –  Friday, May 28, 2010

 

President Obama is skipping the traditional Memorial Day visit to Arlington National Cemetery, a move that has dismayed some veterans — and comes at a sensitive moment in the administration’s relationship with the military.   

 

Instead of speaking at Arlington, as he did last year and as most presidents have done, Obama will appear at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery outside Chicago, the White House said. Vice President Biden will take his place at Arlington, the most prestigious military cemetery in the country and home to Section 60, a large burial ground for soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

How Can Anyone Be A Birther?

May 25, 2012 by Bob Livingston

 

Click for a larger image

According to the White House, this is Barack Obama’s “official” birth certificate.

 

“Birther” is a term the mainstream media have put on those who question whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is, therefore, eligible to hold the office of President. The MSM mean it as a derisive term. After all, no higher authority than Snopes.com has validated Obama’s citizenship.

 

So how can anyone believe Obama was born anywhere but Hawaii?

 

It certainly can’t be because Obama’s paternal step-grandmother once made the claim that Obama was born in Mombasa, Kenya, and that she was present at the birth.

 

It certainly can’t be because a Kenyan newspaper, the Sunday Standard, published an article in 2004 with the headline “Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate.”

 

It certainly can’t be because The Nigerian Observer published an article in November 2008 about how Kenyan-born Senator Barack Obama was the favorite to win the U.S. Presidential race.

 

It certainly can’t be because there are a number of other articles that say he is Kenya-born.

 

It certainly can’t be because an investigation by the Kenyan National Security Intelligence Service into claims Obama might be Kenyan-born determined relevant documents had been removed or were missing.

 

It certainly can’t be because the State of Hawaii has refused all requests — including multiple attempts from Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s cold case posse — to release an original long-form birth certificate.

 

It certainly can’t be because of the many flaws found in the “official” birth certificate released by the White House last April.

 

It certainly can’t be because, if Obama himself is to be believed, his father’s Kenyan and British citizenship denies “natural-born” status and precludes Obama from serving.

 

It certainly can’t be because the Kenyan ambassador said it’s well-known that Obama was born in Kenya.

 

It certainly can’t be because Michelle Obama once called Kenya Obama’s “home country.”

 

It certainly can’t be because Arpaio’s investigative team has discovered that official records of inbound U.S. flights from the week of Obama’s supposed birth are missing from the National Archives.

 

It certainly can’t be because, as Breitbart.com released last week, Obama’s authorized biography from his literary agent in 1991 said Obama was born in Kenya, and that the biography remained that way through subsequent reprintings into 2007.

 

It certainly can’t be that he’s using a Social Security number issued from the State of Connecticut in either 1976 or 1977 even though he has never claimed to reside there and held his first job at a Hawaii Baskin-Robbins. This is one of a number — as many as 16 by some counts — of Social Security numbers that can be linked to Obama and his aliases.

 

And it certainly can’t have anything to do with the fact that Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett bowed to political pressure and changed his tune on Obama’s eligibility even before he had opened the email from Hawaii because he “was confident it contained the information he asked for.”

 

This birther nonsense is silly. No rational, thinking person could ever doubt that Obama was born in Hawaii.

Just this morning I had this AD ‘POP-UP’ on one of my local news sites (WTVD 11). Now, I’ve seen lots and lots of ads, distorting the TRUTH, come out of the Hussein Administration but this one really got my blood pressure UP! And don’t even get me started on “INDOCTRINATION Benefits”….AKA Education!


Let’s look at some FACTS, Shall We?

Think about this—- WWII, Korean, and a lot of Vietnam Veterans are now forced to use Medicare as their Primary Health Care Insurance Provider. Yet he states (lying I might add) in this ad that he is helping them! That is an out and out lie.

“The House Ways and Means Democratic staff has prepared a list of possible cuts to the Medicare program totaling more than $500 billion over 10 years, according to documents obtained by CQ HealthBeat.”

AND

“Skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long-term care acute hospitals would absorb up to $28 billion in cuts over two years through a freeze on their Medicare rates over that period.”

Source

*********

Remember the 2011 Debt Ceiling Debate on Capital Hill????? When Barry threatened to withhold ACTIVE DUTY Military pay? AND they also threatened Social Security Recipients checks. Remember now, a lot of our Older Service Men & Women are collecting SS.

“The worst part of this whole debate is the Obama Administration’s decision to hold military pay hostage to the budget debate. For the last few decades, government shutdowns have been guided by an OMB directive issued during the Reagan Administration. Under this directive, military personnel would continue to receive the paychecks while politicians argued about the budget. The Clinton Administration, during the last government shutdown, kept the paychecks flowing.

 

But, not Obama.

 

The Obama Administration has overturned the old OMB directive and has decided to suspend military paychecks if there is a government shutdown. No reason to do it…but they have decided to. Reprehensible.

 

Of course, Republicans in the House passed the bill that Congress and the President should also have their pay frozen if a government shutdown happens- but Democrats in the Senate voted against it.”

*********

And then there’s this one where the administration wants to again attack our Military folks 1st and foremost….. from 2010 BEFORE the elections and the Republican takeover of the House.

“President Barack Obama — who came to power with the help of government employee unions across the nation and has lavished on them hundreds of billions in stimulus funds to keep them on federal, state and local payrolls with no strings attached — is moving to cut spending on salaries for military personnel.

 

This weekend The Washington Post headlined story, “Pentagon Asking Congress to Hold Back on Generous Increases in Troop Pay,” disclosed that the Obama administration is “pleading” with Congress to give military personnel a much smaller increase in pay than lawmakers have proposed.

 

The Pentagon contends that Congress simply has been too generous with troops during the past decade.

 

For example, the military brass claims that an average sergeant in the Army with four years of service and one dependent would receive $52,589 in annual compensation, according to the paper. This figure includes basic pay, housing, and subsistence allowances, as well as tax benefits.

 

Meanwhile, a U.S. postal letter carrier, with no supervisory or hazardous duty, makes approximately $80,000 a year when all benefits are factored in.”

*********

“The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

 

The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.

 

The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.

 

Many in Congress are opposing the proposed changes, which would require the passage of new legislation before being put in place.”

 

“We shouldn’t ask our military to pay our bills when we aren’t willing to impose a similar hardship on the rest of the population,” Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and a Republican from California, said in a statement to the Washington Free Beacon. “We can’t keep asking those who have given so much to give that much more.”

Looks like the Small Business owner will have to jump through several hoops of bureaucratic Red Tape before he will get this said credit. AND, if you’ll read it carefully, it appears that these said TAX credits have Already expired….. January 1, 2012!

Small business owners can receive a tax credit if they hire unemployed veterans who meet certain qualifications.

Eligibility

For the business to qualify for the $2,400 credit, the veteran must be a member of a family that has received food stamps for at least three months in the 15-month period before he is hired. To qualify for the $4,800 credit, a small business must hire a veteran that has a documented service-related injury and was released from active duty a year or less before employment or has been unemployed for six months out of the past year before a small business owner hires him. To qualify for the largest tax credit, a small business owner must hire a veteran who has participated in TANF for 18 consecutive months before his hire date.

Documentation

Small business owners must make filings with the Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service to receive tax credits for hiring veterans. These filings include IRS Form 8850, titled “Pre-Screening Notice and Certification Request for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit,” and ETA Form 9061. ETA stands for the Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration. Small business owners must fill out ETA Form 9062 instead of 9061 if the veteran was referred to them by a vocational rehabilitation agency.

Time Frame

Small business owners must file forms no later than 28 days after they hire a qualifying veteran, and they must keep veterans on staff for at least 120 hours to keep the credit. The credit was scheduled to expire Jan. 1, 2012, but business owners should check with the Department of Labor for possible extensions.
