    Foxnews defeats the Sharpton channel again!

    Morning All
    Early Start/Starting Point still can barely break 200. How long will CNN allow that train wreck to continue?

  • cathy

    Well, the 6 pm numbers have a problem on the fox line.

    But it’s looking good for fox.

    @Ratboy @CoffeeSpeaking of Taxes, I like retirement, I’m not going to owe 4000 this year
    Sadly my husband retires this year and starts drawing partner pay out. After 40 years of hard work which also provided jobs for a number of people, the government will get as much or more of which he worked so hard to acquire. The truth is and you hear it when obama talks about taxes. He does not regard what a citizen works for as rightfully theirs. He views it as all government money and he will decide what you can keep.
    The real truth is that those who give lip service for higher taxes will not pay them. They will have special carve outs in the tax laws or they will have so much money they will set up tax exempt charities. They and they whole family will draw salaries and free perks for the rest of their lives. Look at Al Gore, Warren Buffett, the Kennedy dynasty and on and on.

    FYI: ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Halloween Special Pulls In 3.1 Million’

    It is our responsible as Americans to support the poor of our country. Honey Boo Boo, teen mom, Buckwild and other reality shows are just TLC and MTV’s way of getting the poor a job and off of welfare.

  • cathy

    Letmethink, And the Kennedy’s made most of their money illegally during Prohibition.

  • Coffee Steve


    very good points on the taxes issue. I never did mind paying taxes, but the rules have got to the point its sad. They tax income on me that has already been taxed, and then I have to pay tax on it again at the end of the year and if I decide to withdrawl from certain accounts I have it’s taxed a 4th time.

    They would do the same to our wonderful Congress members but about 90% of them use offshore accounts listed under companies that they can’t be connected to to avoid it.


    (From the other board)

    Take it from USN and Myself, if you do retire? Trust us, you’ll be amazed at how much busier you’ll be

  • Doug Z


    Kennedy owned a bank the day he was born. Rose had even more money.You are right, he was able to steel a lot from Wall Street to.

  • Doug Z

    Kennedy were related to a 17th century King.The king had no children by his wife. But lots of them outside of marriage.If you want I can look it up on who.

  • Letmethink

    @Coffee–my husband used to say the same thing. He felt good that he paid taxes and felt fortunate that he did well enough to pay the amount he paid. Now every entity in the world taxes you and as you say, you are taxed on income on which you have already paid taxes. One gets to keep so little of what they earn it is sad. The 39% is just federal. Just saw in the paper yesterday that Ft Worth is going to increase water users fee to pay for infrastructure. I thought the stimulus had tons of money in that for stimulus? On my 38 dollar basic landline bill we end up paying $58 with all the taxes and user fees. What is scary is that Queen Nancy said that they are not through with taxes. I don’t think they will stop until they get everything and everyone is equal—-equally poor and equally uneducated.
    Hey, can you tell I am a little riled today? But on the other hand, we are getting some wonderful slow rain. This is the second day and we are so happy to get it.

  • Doug Z

    Mr Coffee

    Manufacturing has fallen and there is a revenue problem. The spending is not much higher.40% of what they spend is not collected. Gov is not that much bigger, the revenue is down.We are in trouble.

  • AppleStinx


    Have you thought of becoming a farmer like Bruce Sprinsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and Ted Turner? (look up “Subsidies of the Rich and Famous”)

  • JM

    Seniors have been hurt badly for the last 4 yrs. We had no retirement from our work and saved what we could to help with our S.S. But with the govt. having close to ZERO interest rates we have been using our principle to help with our S.S. We live in a small home, one cheaper car and never took big vacations knowing we could not live on S.S. alone. We will never take food stamps or any other help from the government. Our parents would come back to haunt us.

    I tried but they want a down payment. Ted turner is the largest farmer in this county

  • Doug Z


    My dad has money and always did. He told me If the Gov is giving to take it. This happened when I was a kid. He said you will pay for it in taxes in time.

  • Doug Z


    You already payed for food stamps

  • Doug Z


    You can not get them anyway you own a house.

    Agree–Kathy JK was a scalawag. He was born into some money but he enriched himself during the depression and during WWII in unscrupulous ways. In one six year span his wealth increased from 4 million to 180 million. Reminds me of Al Gore profiteering off global warming and increasing his income from 1 million to 100 million in eight years.
    JK was also a German sympathizer. Info from The Straight Dope and Redroom.com
    Joseph P. Kennedy was the ambitious son of a prosperous Boston saloon keeper and ward boss. He married the mayor’s daughter, went to Harvard, and generally made the most of his ample connections and talent. He ran a bank (admittedly two-bit) at 25, and was number-two man at a shipyard with more than 2,000 workers during World War I. At 30 he became a stockbroker and made a fortune through insider trading and stock manipulation. He was a master of the stock pool, a then-legal stunt in which a few traders conspired to inflate a stock’s price, selling out just before the bubble burst.

    Kennedy may also have traded in illegal booze, although the evidence is circumstantial. His father had been in the liquor business before Prohibition, and Joe himself got into it (publicly, that is) immediately after repeal. Some believe the family business simply went underground during the dry years. He may have been strictly a nickle-and-dimer; Harvard classmates say he supplied the illicit booze for alumni events.

    But there might have been more to it than that. In 1973 mob boss Frank Costello said he and Kennedy had been bootlegging partners. Other underworld figures have also claimed Joe was in pretty deep. At least one writer (Davis, 1984) thinks bootlegging enabled Joe to earn his initial financial stake, but that’s hard to believe; he had plenty of chances to make money more or less legally.

    Not all recources you own count. For ­example, your home and the land it is on do not count for food stamp eligibility. A car or truck counts differently depending on how it is used. Most states now use TANF rules in place of SNAP vehicle rules if the TANF rules are more beneficial to the SNAP household.
