How Going Over The Fiscal Cliff Will Directly Affect You; Benghazi Whitewash Continues; Gun Laws Should Come Down Hard On David Gregory: Karma Should Step In

  • So if the country does plunge over the Fiscal Cliff, how will that directly affect you?  To see that, check the graph above. (Courtesy Tax Foundation). The burst of taxes include tax rates on capital gains going from 15 to 20%.  The Child Tax Credit would be be cut from $1,000 to $500.  Inheritance Tax would go from the current 35% (on estates over $5M) to 55% on estates over $1 million (this alone will force many farmers to go out of business). The payroll-tax cut would expire from the current 4.2% to 6.2%.
  • But don't just obsess about those numbers. In addition to those taxes, ObamaCare's taxes also kick in. In other words, ObamaCare taxes have nothing to do with the taxes associated with the country leaping into the fiscal abyss.
  • Don't look now but we will hit the debt limit of $16.4T on Dec. 31.
  • Why did Pres. Obama cut his Hawaiian vacation short? He wants to be viewed as the savior on the white horse coming in to save the Republic. It's all political. It's all about him.
  • As reported yesterday, the skunks in State who were responsible for the Benghazi debacle were not fired. Instead they just received an extended Christmas vacation. That leaves only Amb. Stevens and the 3 other American heroes who lost their jobs and their lives. The Benghazi whitewash continues.

  • On top of that, Hillary Clinton has still not testified. The Benghazi report clearly showed that all the assertions made by the administration and State were false. That leaves Hillary who has a lot of questions that need to be answered. For example, what did she know and when did she know it? Was she and the White House aware of the security needs on the ground (Amb. Stevens sent many cables to Washington expressing a need for more security)? And why did State and the administration come up with those bogus stories when they already knew what really happened?
  • Regarding the debate over The Journal News disclosing the names and locations of those holding gun permits, you need to know the reporter who wrote that story is a licensed gun owner.

  • NBC News' David Gregory is being investigated by the D.C. police department. It appears he broke a gun law when he showed off a large-capacity gun clip on his show "Meet The Press." I say arrest the guy. He broke a gun law. He and his ilk advocate the same for gun owners. Perhaps Karma can step in.
  • It's amazing how these pundits, celebrities and politicians, many of whom have gun permits, yet do not want Americans to have the same.

  • Michael Moore, Hollywood premier nitwit, told white people to relax and put away your guns. You need to know that two weeks ago, this fat prick's bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon.
  • A record 8.8 million are now receiving Social Security disability benefits.
