Vile Behavior On Plane…..

As Dead Soldier’s Coffin Is Being Loaded On Plane, Flight Full Of People Do The Sickest Thing Imaginable

If you need further proof of just how heartless and self-centered people from this generation have become, a California family’s story will absolutely break your heart.

Last Saturday, Sgt. John Perry from Northern California was killed in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber. The Soldier was in the middle of running a 5K event for Veteran’s Day, but tragically, never made it to the finish line.

The family of the fallen Soldier was on a flight to bring the body of their dead son home, when people on the flight began to do the unthinkable. Because of the slight delay picking up the body caused, people on the flight began to boo.

“To hear the reaction of the flight being delayed because of a Gold Star family and the first class cabin booing, that was really upsetting, and it made us cry some more,” the father, Stewart Perry tearfully recounted.

fallen-soldier-dadThe father went on to say that this is yet another incident of military service members facing disrespect, and his son’s underscores why the American flag is so sacred by many, and not a symbol for protest.

“It’s not for protest – it’s for the death of the people who are saving us. That’s what it’s for. “My kid was over there to help put a stop to this garbage, and he died,” he said.

How more vile can people get? Sgt. Perry gave his life to defend your freedom, and all you can do is boo because picking up his dead body caused a little delay in your freaking schedule? People are truly sick.

Just what may we ask has happened to the younger generations in our country. Or perhaps they were not all young, but still show a lack of respect for this soldier who gave his all, his life.

Those who believed they were delayed a bit and “it ruined” their lives for a moment should think about this soldier who probably never complained about how his life was interrupted because he was busy serving our country.

To me this shows how deteriorated our culture has become. Who brought up these spoiled, selfish, vile people?

Pat Smith on Huckabee, Mother of Son Killed in Benghazi Massacre

On Huckabee’s Fox show last night, I watched with tears streaming down my face as Pat Smith spoke out about how our government treated her after her son, Sean Smith was killed during the Benghazi Terrorist attack by Al an Sharia, a group spun off of AQ.

She stated:  “I want to wish Hillary a Happy Mother’s Day. She has her child. I don’t have mine because of her.”

Obama and Hillary told her at a service for the four men killed in Benghazi they would keep in touch with her.  They never did except for one State Department clerk who called her to give her the so called timeline.  She already had that timeline so there was nothing new to hear or see.

Since then NO ONE contacted her ever.  She is still waiting for answers but none come.  She viewed the Congressional committee hearing when three brave men came forward and testified to what actually happened in Benghazi and how they were abandoned with no rescue team. But more questions are needed to be answered.

She said “they” did not care about her.  Since I lost my son 4 years ago, albeit under other circumstances I could identify with her horribly painful feelings and her loss on Mother’s Day.  I too feel that kind of pain. I often feel too “nobody cares”.  But, a Mother losing a child is something nobody can understand unless they have also been through that experience, a brutally painful and unrelenting agony, especially the first several years. It never ends and for Pat Smith it will never end because she will never get the answers or the resolution she wants.

Our government covered the Benghazi massacre up and sent no one to rescue these Americans who died.  I don’t see anyone from this White House ever taking any responsibility because that could wreck the Obama administration and Hillary’s chances for President in 2016.  In fact, even if she did own up to her part, she probably would still be elected since she is the “most admired” woman in this country.  That does not say much for some people in our country either.

So I tell Pat Smith I am wishing her a Happy Mother’s Day if that is even possible for her, but I doubt it.  I too know that Mother’s Day is always a painful one for me.  So it won’t be any different for her. 

I also say to Pat Smith I care about you.  I know what you feel and I know about your pain.  If I can help you I am here.  You can bend my ear, you can cry on my shoulder because I DO CARE about you and your pain.

Shame on you, Mr. Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and all who are complicit in this cover up and the pain you inflicted on the families of the four mean killed who no one even tried to rescue.  Shame on the person who gave the stand down order.  Shame on everyone who left Pat Smith with no answers and no one taking responsibility for her son’s death.

Obama, Hillary, Susan Rice and all who covered this up for political purposes you are all LIARS.  I hope God deals with you some day about this because this is heinous.  How could you care so little for Pat Smith?

Now for all the Mothers who still do have their children I wish them a Happy Mother’s Day.  I would never wish what Pat Smith or I have experienced losing our sons.  I am genuinely happy that you still have your children.  Losing one’s child is something no parent should ever have to bear.  I would not even wish this on my worst enemy.

Enjoy your day.  As Mothers doing the most important job of your lives you deserve it!

Obama Democrats Screwed the Economy, Not Bush

This is an editorial by Dave Taylor

 

It is my belief the following events are why our economy went from very good to very bad and it had nothing to do with President Bush.

Democrats took over on January 3, 2007. That is the day they took over the House of Representatives and the Senate at the very start of the 110th Congress. The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

When the Democrats took over both the Senate and the House (January 3, 2007); The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77, the GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5% and the unemployment rate was 4.6%. President Bush’s economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH!

January 3, 2007 was the day thatBarney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

Unemployment (to this CRISIS among MANY other things) occurred by dumping $5-6 TRILLION dollars of toxic loans on the economy from the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES! President Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie, because it was financially risky for the US economy. OBAMA and the Democrat Congress fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie.

Who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA! Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress was the Democrat Party.  In 2009, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets. Obama was a member of that very Congress that passed these massive spending bills and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending. That included Obama who voted for the budgets. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold.

Once again Obama and the Democrats lied and blame President Bush for the economic mess they created. And they are asking us to give Obama another 4 years to continue on their path of destruction with the slogan ‘Forward”.  All they’ve done is take our country “Backwards”!

New Medicare Program X

You’re a sick senior citizen and the government says there is no nursing home available for you. So what do you do?Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot four Politicians.Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and all the health care you need!

Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That’s great. Need a new hip, knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They’re all covered.

As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now.

And who will be paying for all of this? It’s the same government that just told you that you they cannot afford for you to go into a home.

And you can get rid of 4 useless politicians while you are at it.

Plus, and because you are a prisoner, you don’t have to pay any income taxes anymore.

Is this a great country or what?

20 Hidden Taxes in ObamaDeathCare

Here are many reasons to vote Obama out of office.  The taxes on the Obama Death Care are Ruinous to We, the People, who never wanted this bloody program to begin with.  This program stands for CONTROL and nothing else.

Taxes that took effect in 2010:

1. Excise Tax on Charitable Hospitals (Min$/immediate): $50,000 per hospital if they fail to meet new “community health assessment needs,” “financial assistance,” and “billing and collection” rules set by HHS. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,961-1,971.

2. Codification of the “economic substance doctrine” (Tax hike of $4.5 billion). This provision allows the IRS to disallow completely-legal tax deductions and other legal tax-minimizing plans just because the IRS deems that the action lacks “substance” and is merely intended to reduce taxes owed. Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 108-113.

3. “Black liquor” tax hike (Tax hike of $23.6 billion). This is a tax increase on a type of bio-fuel. Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 105.

4. Tax on Innovator Drug Companies ($22.2 bil/Jan 2010): $2.3 billion annual tax on the industry imposed relative to share of sales made that year. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,971-1,980.

8. HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike ($1.4 bil/Jan 2011): Increases additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,959.

Taxes that took effect in 2012:

9. Employer Reporting of Insurance on W-2 (Min$/Jan 2012): Preamble to taxing health benefits on individual tax returns. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,957.

Taxes that take effect in 2013:

10. Surtax on Investment Income ($123 billion/Jan. 2013): Creation of a new, 3.8 percent surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single). This would result in the following top tax rates on investment income: Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 87-93.

Capital Gains Dividends Other*

2013+ 23.8% 43.4% 43.4%

*Other unearned income includes (for surtax purposes) gross income from interest, annuities, royalties, net rents, and passive income in partnerships and Subchapter-S corporations. It does not include municipal bond interest or life insurance proceeds, since those do not add to gross income. It does not include active trade or business income, fair market value sales of ownership in pass-through entities, or distributions from retirement plans. The 3.8% surtax does not apply to non-resident aliens.

11. Hike in Medicare Payroll Tax ($86.8 bil/Jan 2013): Current law and changes:

First $200,000
($250,000 Married)
Employer/Employee

2.9% self-employed
1.45%/1.45%
2.9% self-employed
Obamacare Tax Hike 1.45%/1.45%

There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children. There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education. Bill: PPACA; Page: 2,388-2,389

Exemptions for religious objectors, undocumented immigrants, prisoners, those earning less than the poverty line, members of Indian tribes, and hardship cases (determined by HHS).Bill: PPACA; Page: 317-337

18. Employer Mandate Tax (Jan 2014): If an employer does not offer health coverage, and at least one employee qualifies for a health tax credit, the employer must pay an additional non-deductible tax of $2000 for all full-time employees. Applies to all employers with 50 or more employees. If any employee actually receives coverage through the exchange, the penalty on the employer for that employee rises to $3000. If the employer requires a waiting period to enroll in coverage of 30-60 days, there is a $400 tax per employee ($600 if the period is 60 days or longer).Bill: PPACA; Page: 345-346

Combined score of individual and employer mandate tax penalty: $65 billion/10 years
