Tenth Amendment Center

Take tax policy. A 131-page document (pdf) issued by the Treasury goes way beyond recommending the extension of some of the expiring Bush administration tax cuts. For example, the fine print contains over a dozen ways of discouraging American firms from doing business and investing overseas. Supposedly minor technical changes also would have a severe impact.For example, eliminating LIFO (last in-first out) inventory accounting will raise business taxes over $60 billion in one decade. The Treasury also wants to revive four corporate environmental taxes that were eliminated in 1969. These four arbitrary taxes have no relation between the tax burden imposed on a company and the pollution that it generates. This bears an uneasy resemblance to Willie Sutton, who robbed banks because that was where the money was. Inevitably a variety of technical tax provisions will increase the paperwork burden on business. The penalties for failing to file information returns (such as Form 1099) pro

Leading liberals are already thinking the unthinkable: Challenging President Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2012. According to a report on the left-leaning Huffington Post website, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann and Eugene Robinson, an African-American national columnist for The Washington Post, discussed just such a possibility Thursday night. Robinson said Obama needs to be careful how he handles the health care reform issue and the continuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.Olbermann said the president has “compromised on everything so far and as self-defeating as it may be, the progressive caucus and progressives would abandon him if necessary, if this was to be the policy of this administration into 2012. If it’s necessary to find somebody to run against him, I think they’d do it, no matter how destructive that may seem.”

Wall St. Pit

We’ve seen this rodeo before, haven’t we. Someone starts raising questions about the quality of a loan portfolio and the capital standing behind it, a lot of confusing numbers get thrown around by the institution in question as it assures us all that nothing bad could happen and you know the rest of the story. One would hope that this would lead to a proper investigation by Congress in which the real economic risk is quantified but don’t count on it. The reality is that FHA has always taken too much risk Even though the housing crisis has pretty well documented that no or low downpayment loans are a prescription for a disaster, FHA continues to make them. Though ostensibly they require a 3.5% downpayment, there are any number of ways around that. The $8,000 tax credit has only exacerbated the problem. Many local government programs allow for the tax credit to be used for a downpayment. Moreover, FHA allows for downpayment gifts from family members and certain other parties. It doesn’t

Mark Llyod is the “Chief Diversity Officer” (whatever the hell that is) for the FCC. Otherwise known as the “Diversity Czar” in libertarian circles, Mr. Lloyd is on video record praising the Hugo Chavez Regime in Venezuela (Happy Global Anti-Chavez day, by the way!) and their handling of opposition over the airwaves…More Yeah… this guy is being given power within the FCC to reconstruct the way radio and TV operate. Is there any guess as to his intent? He’s looking to silence ANY and ALL opposition to the administration over the air… and he’s not at all trying to hide it.

Calling President Obama's Executive Order on Ethics for Executive Branch personnel "the strongest ethics standards in U.S. government history," White House counsel Norm Eisen on Friday announced 10 more waivers for Obama administration officials.The waivers will allow the officials to participate with persons with whom and entities with which "the appointees formerly had a professional relationship," Eisen wrote, "because there was a compelling public interest in allowing it." * Associate Deputy Secretary of Labor Naomi Walker; Walker was Director of State Government Affairs for the AFL-CIO but has been permitted to communicate with that organization because, the Obama administration decided, prohibiting her from doing so would be detrimental to the Department of Labor and the AFL-CIO's 11 million members. She is still prohibited for the next two years to participate in any matter having to do with regulations or contracts involving the AFL-CIO.

Goldman Sachs 666

Here are a couple of videos Max Keiser just posted from a brief chat we had this week. I must keep repeating . . . Wake Up America. Today is another example. As I write this, it is Friday afternoon and the financial markets are being driven higher . . . even though we just saw the worse unemployment numbers yet AND the numbers were worse than anyone predicted.What is happening now is a wholesale raping of America as Goldman Sachs and the Banksters stuff pension funds, mutual funds, IRAs and consumer accounts with overpriced stock that Goldman Sachs ran up to hyper-inflated levels . . . with taxpayer bailout money.When the markets correct, Goldman Sachs and the league of Banksters will be shelling out billions in bonuses as you realize how it feels to be beaten up, financially raped and tossed in the gutter. And you'll feel worse, when you realize you still have to come up with the two trillion dollars these thugs have stolen out of the system.

Old habits are hard to break. When the NASDAQ tech-bubble burst, the U.S. government and Federal Reserve Chairman “Bubbles” Greenspan created an even bigger asset-bubble to replace it (the U.S. housing bubble). It was characterized by a 1% “benchmark” interest rate, ridiculously lax lending standards, rampant fraud – and non-existent oversight. By refusing to allow its economy to purge itself of bad debt and excessive credit, the U.S. government created a much more damaging bubble – aggravated by Wall Street's multi-trillion dollar, global Ponzi-scheme.

The preconditions for gains in payrolls, including giving the army of part-timers longer hours and taking on additional temporary employees, weren’t met last month. At the same time, with economic growth forecast to resume this quarter, the figures set the stage for a surge in worker productivity and drop in labor costs that will stoke corporate profits. “It’s disappointing and it tells us that we are not quite there yet,” said Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York who used to work at the Federal Reserve. “It’s great for business and terrible for households” for coming months, Feroli said.

Despite efforts to portray next week’s event as merely the President giving a speech to students, the full scope of what some education experts are decrying as part of an indoctrination program represents an advancement of the creepy, Orwellian, cult of personality-style worship of Obama and servitude to government being pushed in schools throughout America.

Reminds me of the "organ" harvesting in RED CHINA! Cass Sunstein, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), has advocated a policy under which the government would “presume” someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken.

"I think it's really unfortunate that politics has been brought into this," White House deputy policy director Heather Higginbottom said.

"It's simply a plea to students to really take their learning seriously. Find out what they're good at. Set goals. And take the school year seriously."

She noted that President George H.W. Bush made a similar address to schools in 1991. Like Obama, Bush drew criticism, with Democrats accusing the Republican president of making the event into a campaign commercial.

This week's polls are a disaster for President Barack Obama. The Rasmussen poll has his approval dropping to 45 percent, after several weeks at 49 percent. The Zogby poll has it even lower — at 42 percent. Worse yet, he's losing his political base: People under 30 — long a key element of his support — give him no better than break-even ratings, with 41 percent approving and 41 percent disapproving of the job he's doing, according to Zogby. Only 75 percent of Democrats, who formerly have supported Obama strongly, now approve of his performance in office. Zogby reports that this represents a slide of more than 10 points over the summer. Even among blacks, only 74 percent approve of the job he's doing (also a drop of more than 10 points). Hispanics, who voted for him by a margin of more than 40 points, now break even (36-36) when rating his performance. Independents, the key swing group in our politics, now deliver a sharply negative 37-50 verdict on Obama**Q

On Line Athens

U.S. Rep. Paul Broun is again raising the specter of Democrats turning the United States into a totalitarian state. Broun, R-Athens, apparently has not changed his belief that President Obama may be a fascist since he made similar remarks in Augusta in November and then in an Associated Press interview. He told a meeting of the Morgan County Republicans on Wednesday night that Obama already has or will have the three things he needs to make himself a dictator: a national police force, gun control and control over the press. "He has the three things that are necessary to establish an authoritarian government," Broun said. "And so we need to be ever-vigilant, because freedom is precious."

It seems these stories finally start to emerge after the damage is done. Did you realize the White House "Prediction" (what is he a fortune teller?) of $9.05 Trillion is based on the ASSumptions of a brisk economy for ten years? What is he smoking? According to Pimco (Allianz) we are looking at a sorry state of affairs for 10 to 20 years. I am sure he is being optimistic on that since it is in a report to investors. "Well, the surprise is that there’s been a significant break in that growth pattern, because of delevering, deglobalization, and reregulation. All of those three in combination, to us at PIMCO, means that if you are a child of the bull market, it’s time to grow up and become a chastened adult; it’s time to recognize that things have changed and that they will continue to change for the next – yes, the next 10 years and maybe even the next 20 years.
