Boehner's Pre-buttal Of Obama's Future Speech - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Shortly, Speaker John Boehner will provide some clarity to what was heralded by so many hope-mongering media types as an olive-branch in his previous speech. We suspect the fire and brimstone will pick up modestly while there will be just enough to offer hope that all our fears are misplaced. This apparent pre-buttal of Obama's 1pmET speech will set the tone for how these two 'colleagues' will play for the next few months... perhaps the "Don't Tax Me Bro'" t-shirts will raise enough taxes to cover the shortfall?

Unfortunately, you actually need to have an "official" income in order to "officially" pay taxes.  I am always willing to talk about taxation if everyone else is willing to discuss inflation in all those things we need to survive.   Long black markets and any other medium of exchange besides fiat. Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

My million dollar bonus is on the bet that says both sides will not reach a consensus before the end of the year.

The strategy is then for one side to give a bit and claim they saved the day.

This is less about solving a problem and more about making the other side look bad.

note to boner: please to discuss the important ratio

not debt to gdp .. but kick-can-index: debtSlaveYears for each taxpaying taxpayer

16,000 billion in usdebt / 0.1 billion taxpaying taxpayers =  160,000 usdebt per taxpaying taxpayer

160,000 / 80,000 avgIncomePerTaxpayer = 2 debtSlaveYears for each taxpaying taxpayer

if we can just hold down the avgIncome, the cost of our exports will become competitive again.

we can call the 2 years of debtSlaving "national service".

There's an certain school of thought among some in right-of-center circles that says that Boner should basically now say something along the lines of, well, we don't like it but this is evidently what you sheeple voted for so we're just going to get the heck out of the way, vote "present" on everything (which would be a nice parallel of El Presidente's legislative career) and let Choomy/Reid have everything they want - then sit back and watch the US swirl the bowl, which is where we're headed anyway.

Not sure I concur with that, of course - but I do see it's merits as a political partisan.

Truly.

Isn't it amazing how bad things have devolved, when an ultra-loser like Boehner, a clown who couldn't EVEN MAKE IT THROUGH US Navy basic training (the way Geo. W. Bush couldn't even make it, likewise, through USAF enlisted basic training) is prattling on incoherently --- a douchebagger with an enormously limited IQ?

Really, of more interest are those:

SOME SIMPLE QUESTIONS

That Brit from Hakluyt who was murdered in China, and the political turmoil and churn there.

What does it have to do with organ harvesting in China, and with global organ harvesting in general?

What is the connection with David Rockefeller and organ harvesting?

What was the connection with Josef Mengele showing up in Chile, and David Rockefeller?

Why does Rockefeller vacation in Chile every year?

What are the connections between Hakluyt, the private British intel firm, and David Rockefeller?  (Anyone ever heard of Frank Wisner, Sr., and Frank Wisner, Jr.?)

Why did Hillary Clinton meet with Richard Mellon Scaife prior to her run for the presidency in 2008? (The very same Richard Mellon Scaife who was behind the "Arkansas Project" to dig up dirt on the Clintons?)

Why did Chris Mellon (DoD/DIA at that time) "leak" Iran's nuclear program back early in the Geo. W. Bush administration?

Simple questions .....

Let me get this straight.

So $600 billion in tax increases plus spending cuts are scheduled for 1 January.  600B / 15.2T (GDP size) is about a 4% hit.

The "successful resolution" of the fiscal cliff will be no tax increases and no spending cuts.  This will leave the deficit at 1.2T and add that to the debt so that October of 2013 we'll have 17T+ in debt.

This would be "successful resolution".  Unsuccessful resolution would be a 600B deficit and 16.7T in debt in Oct 2013, plus a little recession during the year.

What exactly is supposed to be a favorable outcome?

The Republicons spent the last 4 years dedicated to getting Obama out of office by instilling gridlock on Capitol Hill. I don't think  that strategy is going to bide well for the Republicons if they try that one again.

I don't know if you noticed but, we didn't blame Obama for the gridlock, we re-elected him!

Get it?

If that Jooh boy Cantor wants to stick with the same play book the Republicons will, definitely lose the House in two years. It is common knowledge Cantor is a fartlicking cocksucking faggot, not that there is anything wrong with being gay, which will be confirmed within the next two years.

Your full of shit!

Small businesses should file as small businesses and there would be no problems. Businesses filing as individuals subjects them to individuals tax rate. Let them file as a corporation and pay the corporate tax rate.

Why are businesses filing as individuals instead of businesses? To pay the individual tax rate instead of the Corporate tax rate! To cheat the tax man. My paycheck gets docked 25% and I am supposed to cry because a small, multi-million dollar business has to pay their fair share? 

The small business argument is ridiculous and a fools argument.

A business should file taxes as a business and not as an individual.

If they make the rich guy tax rate equal to the corporate tax rate the small business burden argument disappears.

Dumb ass, there is no way to "file as a small business".  You are either a corporation (or certain S-Corps, etc) or you a pass through entity (sole, LLC, etc.). It's not cheating the tax man, it's following the system as set up.

Fuck sake!

Well then make the individual tax rate of people making over $250,000 the same as the corporate tax rate and the system would be balanaced!

Yes?

Then businesses would file as Corp. instead of sole, LLC. In fact make the Corporate tax rate 1/10% lower than the over $250,000 individual tax rate then they would file as they should. A business.

Get rid of the $106,000  SS withholding ceiling and make everyone pay SS tax on every nickel they make. That makes SS solvent forever. 

Why argue about obvious flaws which should be corrected for the good of all?

Most people, that I have met, who are self made millionaires are successful because they are honest, decent people who deserve what they have created. I bear no grudges against a man because he is wealthy. 

My issue is with the Dick Cheney, types, who would wage war and kill thousands to make his stock value increase.

The Republicons like to throw that phrase "small business" around when what they really mean is small companies who make a lot of money on gov't contracts. I can gaurantee you the guy I see driving around with a truck and a ladder is not filing gross adjusted income over $250,000. Give me a break! If the yankees need to bump the threshold up to $500,000 on individuals that's ok with me as long as the tax system is fair and doesn't make the middle class pay for the mistakes and wars of the wealthy zionist.

Listen, I don't want to be rude or mean to you, but I am simply unable to hide my contempt any longer for people who pretend they know what they are talking about when all they are doing is parroting something they heard someone else say.

Let's just move past what you are saying about tax filings for small businesses.  It is clear you don't understand it and haven't bothered to think about it critically enough to engage you on the topic.

As for SS, is not a typical program / tax system. People pay into it amounts that are connected to what they will get out.  It isn't dollar for dollar and it is progressive in that the return you get decreases as you have earned more over time. But this aspect of the program is what makes it so popular and is why people believe that they earned their benefit and it isn't welfare. And they are mostly right about that.  But, and I am going to try to hold your hand here: get rid of the SS withholding ceiling and you will turn the program into welfare.

Why? Because there is a cap on the benefit payout that is linked to the cap on the tax.  Otherwise, you would have people who earned a lot of money getting enormous SS checks.  Can you imagine the outrage if some people got SS checks of tens of thousands of dollars per month? Even if they paid in enough so that their ROI was the same as everyone else's?

So rather then make the program solvent forever, you will turn it into welfare and doom it within a generation. If you doubt it, consider that the only programs people ever offer up when asked where to cut is welfare and foreign affairs. They are as misguided as you are now.

And as a further piece of advice: anytime you are tempted to write about Jews or anything else related to Israel or Judaism, don't. Just walk away from the keyboard and come back later with a clear mind.

Cold, greedy, thoughtless creatures wanting the middle class to pay his way while he profits making war on the helpless and sticks the middle class and poor with the invoice.

Who said anything about increasing social security benefits if income cap is removed?

If a person earns over $100,000/year they shouldn't qualify for social security benefits. Even if they paid in all their working lives. 

What kind of selfish greedy bastard are you? You think SS is a retirement plan?

Social Security was designed as a safety net so people who are to old to work would not be destitute, eating out of trash bins and living in the street.

That will be the doom of naive, mild-mannered, middle-management, upper middle class WASPs who are deterred by such things as laws, whereas those already with a foot in the door to the criminal world will do fine.

TAX EQUITY would require everyone to pay the same $$$$ in taxes. 

I once thought that was what the Alternative Minimum Tax was supposed to accomplish.

Figure your income taxes, if less than say $5,000, write a check for $5,000 just to have some small degree of Tax Equity.

How the hell is it Equitible for half the people to pay NO Income Tax?

Hillary, Holder and Geitner are jumping ship over the missing 43 trillion at the FED. Well that is according to Hewlitt on Coast to Coast last night. John B. Wells interviewed him. It sounds interesting in that 2 hours after CNBC published the article on the lawsuit the two children, of the producer that authorized the posting, were murdered and the article was removed from CNBC. Also the lawsuit is by two groups one of which is a national legal firm.

     Police say after attacking the children, Ortega tried to kill herself with the knife. According to the New York Post, she suffered a broken vertebra when attempting to take her life after allegedly stabbing the children.

Sure, that sounds really plausible.  She tried to slit her own throat with such force that she broke a bone in her neck.
