PLATO: The Penalty for good Men not serving as politicians

is for them is to be ruled by inferior men….

 

 

Is it NFL or NBA?

This is a real eye-opener.

This is a good current events test!

36   have been accused of spousal abuse

7   have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad checks

117   have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3   have done time for assault  repeatedly

71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

14   have been arrested on drug-related charges

8   have been arrested for shoplifting

21   currently are defendants in lawsuits, and

84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet? . .

Scroll down,

Neither, it’s the 435   members of the   United States Congress

The same group of Idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line. You oughta pass this one on!

(Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair. :>)

DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL STATISTICS

Part 1

Remember the election in 2006? Thought you might like to read the following:

A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:

1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!

Remember it’s Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what’s handed to him.

Part 2:

Taxes…Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing.

Verify at: http://www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html

Taxes under Clinton 1999                  Taxes under Bush 2008

Single making 30K – tax $8,400           Single making 30K – tax $4,500

Single making 50K – tax $14,000         Single making 50K – tax $12,500

Single making 75K – tax $23,250         Single making 75K – tax $18,750

Married making 60K – tax $16,800       Married making 60K- tax $9,000

Married making 75K – tax $21,000       Married making 75K – tax $18,750

Married making 125K – tax $38,750     Married making 125K – tax $31,250

Both democratic candidates will return to the higher tax rates; it’s what they do.

It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can’t wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don’t even know what happened.
