You're Loosely Based!

by Storey Clayton

While most people haven't heard of you, you're a really good and
interesting person. Rather clever and witty, you crack a lot of jokes about the world
around you. You do have a serious side, however, where your interest covers the homeless
and the inequalities of society. You're good at bringing people together, but they keep
asking you what your name means.

Their tax plans & The Great Schlep  
09:44am 17/10/2008
Here are some facts that you'll find of great interest and on a
humorous note, continue to scroll down to
"The Great Schlep" by Sarah Silverman

If you're for McCain, it probably won't change your mind.
If you're for Obama, it probably won't change your mind either.
They're just facts.

A great post over at The New York Times details the ramifications of each
candidate's tax plans. Here's how the numbers break down in terms of household income:

Only those who make over 603K will be adversely affected by Obama's
tax plan....

Obama Vs. McCain on Taxes
By David Knowles
Sep 16th 2008 6:44PM

If you earn over $2.87 million a year:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 4.4%
Obama wants to raise your taxes by 11.5%

If you earn between $603,403 and $2.87 million:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 3.4%
Obama wants to raise your taxes by 8.4%

If you earn between $226,982 and $603,402:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 3.1%
Obama wants to keep your taxes exactly the same.

If you earn between $111,646 and $160,972:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 3%
Obama wants to cut your taxes by 1.9%

If you earn between $66,335 and $111,645:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 1.4%
Obama wants to cut your taxes by 1.8%

If you earn between $37,596 and $66,354:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 0.7%
Obama wants to cut your taxes by 2.4%

If you earn between $18,982 and $37,595:

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 0.5%
Obama wants to cut your taxes by 3.6%

If you earn less than $18,981 (God bless you):

McCain wants to cut your taxes by 0.2%
Obama wants to cut your taxes by 5.5%

So, we can see here that McCain's plan heavily favors the rich, and gives
less back, in terms of percentage of income, to the poor. Obama's plan hits
the very rich, freezes taxes for families making as much as $603,402,
and generally gives back a greater percentage based on descending income.

While it is true that McCain's plan gives tax breaks to every income
bracket, Obama's is actually weighted so that it targets more Americans with
bigger tax breaks. Why? Because 60% of American households earn less than
$66,354, and that's where Obama concentrates his highest percentage
of tax relief.

McCain's biggest break, a 4.4% drop in terms of percentage of income, is
given to the top 1% of Americans.

Perhaps this is why Alan Greenspan said yesterday that McCain's tax
plan is a disaster.


You are The Boss... which team would you hire?

With America facing historic debt, multiple war fronts, stumbling health
care, a weakened dollar, all-time high prison population, skyrocketing
Federal spending, mortgage crises, bank foreclosures, etc., etc.
This is an
unusually critical election year.

Let's look at the educational background of your two options:

Occidental College - Two years.
Columbia University - B.A. political science with a specialization in
international relations.
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude (top 5% of his class)

& Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in history and B.A. in political science.
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)


United States Naval Academy - Class rank 894 of 899 (bottom 1% of his

& Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
University of Idaho - 2 semesters - journalism
Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in journalism

Now, which team are you going to hire?

look... you & i need to have a fight.

Looks like Nutter's really trying to put Philly on the campaign map. His call for a discussion between the Obama & Clinton, here for our viewing (and, hopefully, access/engagement) is pretty exciting and refreshing!

Superdelegates... spell-check wants to delete the word. I can't blame it. Before October of 2007, I'd never heard of such a thing. Perhaps it's Super Delegates? Able to leap over accountability in a single bound; defy common sense and even consensus with every vote. Did they just now invent this craziness for this particular election cycle? Well... why not? We've already had our Supreme Court appoint a President...
