Re: Do both of them want to lose the election?

Is anyone in AWE of the stupidity of Solar's posts sometimes???? I've never seen someone show such ANTI AMERICAN stances against his fellow man. Is it because you sell worldwide and don't need the American dollar to stay alive?

You cheer AMERICA THE GREAT yet want NOTHING to do with it OTHER than protection from "terror" while you do business over seas.

Also, if Obama is REALLY a radical Muslim terrorist WHY IS IT that he is not sent to PRISON and PUT TO DEATH????

It's ok to be a US senator but run for president and that's a HUGE NO NO if you happen to be a terrorist.

Unbelievable. People don't even realize how stupid their position is based on how little they take it seriously. Just make up anything it's too close to election time to change anything that may or may not be true.

Wrong again. Only against the "fellows" who pay ZERO income tax (33% of filers) and who scream RAISE taxes on the other 66%. Again... we should ALL pay 15% flat tax on every dollar earned. Then all "fellow mans" would have a stake in AMERICA THE GREAT.

BTW - the dollar is getting stronger again (why I have no idea)... and gas below $298 here in MI. Enjoy.

Re: Do both of them want to lose the election?

I received this email today. If anyone can put this into play, I would feel a whole lot better about this whole dibacle.


Hi Pals,

I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.

Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend.

To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..

So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billion that equals $425,000.00.

My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.

Of course, it would NOT be tax free.

So let's assume a tax rate of 30%.

Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxe s.

That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.

But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.

A husband and wife has $595,000.00.

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.

Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads

Put away money for college - it'll be there

Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

Buy a new car - create jobs

Invest in the market - capital drives growth

Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves

Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean - or else


Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.

If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it...instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ( "vote buy" ) economic incentive that is being proposed
by one of our candidates for President.


If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

As for AIG - liquidate it.

Sell off its parts.

Let American General go back to being American General.

Sell off the real estate.

Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

Here's my rationale. W e deserve it and AIG doesn't.

Sure it's a crazy idea that can "never work."

But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party!

How do you spell Economic Boom?

I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion

We Deserve It Dividend more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC

And remember, The Birk plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.

Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

Kindest personal regards,

Birk

T. J. Birkenmeier, A Creative Guy & Citizen of the Republic

PS: Feel free to pass this along to your pals as it's either good for a laugh or a tear or a very sobering thought on how to best use $85 Billion!!

Great that e-mail again......

$85 000 000 000 / $200 000 000 = $425


$425.00 per person, not $425,000.00

It's $425 not $425,000. We already fell for this WONDERFUL but incorrect deal of a lifetime.

Re: Do both of them want to lose the election?

Even if the 425k was correct, how many Americans do you think have paid that amount into the system? It's this entitlement attitude that is killing this country. JMO

Right.

And lets not forget, 800 billion is NOTHING. Heck, the pentagon lost, I think it was, 2.3 TRILLION in one year, the year before than about 1.5 trillion?

I found $1.3 Million in a Halliburton briefcase by the side of the road. I don't think they have even missed it.



Now that I have your attention, there is more evidence of Obama being a card-carrying Socialist. http://www.powerlineblog.com/
