twinkies may be gone
the hostess company is over $800,000 in debt and is filing for
they cant stop making those
ive not had a fried twinkie yet
thought i would eat one after i had my cholesterol checked so
i could recover before the next cholesterol check

maybe they could make a deal with mcdonalds to sell them with
the quarter pounder that i wrote about recently
what a filling meal that would be huh

i dont eat twinkies now but just knowing they are there is important
thats almost as american as moms apple pie

support hostess buy a twinkie today
just dont eat it

he did it
he matched the money donated by a congressman to pay down the
national debt
he will be writing a check for $49,000 as representative rigell from va
donates 15% of his congressional salary to the national debt
any other takers anyone anyone
probably not

tax facts
myth 47% of americans dont pay taxes
fact all americans pay taxes

myth american people and corporations pay high taxes
fact the us has the third lowest taxes of any developed country
in the world

myth cutting taxes creates jobs and raises revenue
fact tax cuts reduce revenue and are not associated with
economic growth
never thought this made sense to me

myth our tax system is progressive because wealthy individuals
pay a disproportionate amount of taxes
fact at a time of income inequality the us tax system is flat
the top 1% are making more and paying fewer taxes

myth the fair tax or flat tax would be fair
fact it would make our tax system even more regressive
the bottom 20% would pay more and the top 1% would pay less
the middle class where most of us are would be hit the hardest

this is from the daily share which has a liberal bent to its articles
but i think most of this above are facts that are true

the prevailing theme of this and everything else thats happening
right now in the economy is that the middle class is getting
screwed and the top 1% are not

our chance to make a change is coming up this fall when we
have elections of the candidates who are picked by the super pacs
who may not be favoring the middle class

it almost makes you not want to vote doesnt it
but its a right i dont want to give up

where is that third party candidate and wheres the occupiers
when we need them

think ill take a prozac generic of course
ill just go for a walk with my dogs down to the river
and contemplate all this
