Climate Change: Government’s Greed FOR Money

Comment By Bob L.
Nov. 19th 2013

To the Greed of the Government Agencies, this Country is creating the problems of so-called Global Warming, who is really the fault of Global Warming? Look around and you can see without a doubt, ALL Government Agencies, why because of their Greed for more money and taxes, why would you say that?

Lets take a look at what they are doing to this Country, look around, land is being plowed under for Ethanol, more Tax money and less food products to be available for people to put on the table around the world, more Buildings being built for increase in of Property taxes from homes and Warehouses, now what does that do to land that use to be covered with Trees, Grass and Farms that produced a food product which is being Plowed under, or Built on, so less CO2 Filtering, and Less Oxygen produced.

So where do you put the blame? One, you put it on the Government, and Two, People who have to have a new home every Two to Three years, these people can not live in a home like they did years back, and Three, more Concrete and Asphalt that covers what Buildings don’t cover, that is the biggest problem that is the cause of Global Warming, but as you can see, it is Greed that is the lead indicator for Money, so if we get back to nature with more Vegetation and less blaming the people, we can stop it without Taxes, just MORE Planting of foliage to filter out CO2.

The report by the Global Carbon Project, which compiles data from research institutes worldwide each year, was published in the journal Earth Systems Data Discussions on Tuesday. Continue reading

Peoples and Governments Rights Violated

Comment By Bob L.
Nov.6th 2013

When it comes to the rights to People and Government, they should be able to have a say on how the laws are used.

This is where this Country is so screwed up today, you have to many people making decisions by putting so many regulations in a law when passed, this same thing is happening in the Affordable Care Act, only a hand full of people have a say in how it is going to be, and no one else has a say, it should be all Americans have a say in how it will be implemented.

Like Obamacare Democrats are the only ones who can say what is going to happen, no one else has a say, not even the American people who the law is about to put in the poor house, and now with this Pot Law in Washington and Colorado the rest of the U.S. wants this law passed, but yet these same people voted to ban smoking in public places because of health reasons, so now they think that it is all right to smoke pot thinking that it is healthier then Cigarettes, so now look at the hypocrites who banned smoking think it is ok for pot. 

The majority of the people should have a say not a minority, and that is the problem today, a hand full of people can tell you what is good for you without asking, or you don’t know what is good for you like I do, what happen to a vote of the Majority when involves the good of the people, and what they want.

Obama and the Democrats are a good example of a Government take over of the Country, and telling the people that they are now going to tell you what you are going to do and no questions will be asked or answered, and if you don’t follow you will be penalized, if not Imprisoned.

Why don’t the people have a say where this pot can be Grown and Sold? It their neighborhood where the problem will start and become a problem with violence, and look at this law since it was passed, they have more minors using since passage, and that same goes for drinking now that the State went Private, so how should have a say, just because it is a state law, that does not say that Local have to abide by it, it is these local Governments that have to answer to the people when the State or Federal pass unsafe laws, I have a good idea, lets put this pot problem in the neighborhoods of the politicians who let it go on the ballot to be voted on, they want it so let them worry about the problems in their backyard.

State agency seeks advice on local pot bans

By Associated Press
KING5.com
Posted on November 6, 2013

OLYMPIA, Wash.  — Washington state attorneys are exploring whether local governments are allowed to ban businesses who will participate in a legal marijuana market.

The office of Attorney General Bob Ferguson issued a noticed Tuesday seeking input on the question raised by the agency tasked with establishing the system. The Liquor Control Board is asking whether state law prevents local governments from banning a marijuana producer, processor or retailer from locating in the area.

Some local governments such as Pierce County have been exploring whether to ban recreational marijuana businesses.

Voters approved an initiative last year to legalize marijuana. The Liquor Control Board has been developing regulations for a system for businesses to grow, process and sell the product.

Back to the 18th Century, Banning What You Can Say!

Comment by Bob L.
Aug. 5th 2013

When people came to America, they did it to get away from tyranny and dictators, now speed a head to America today, laws are going back to earlier days when this Country was getting started.

Today this Country thinks that they are in merry old England, France, Germany, you name the Country and you will see what this Country is looking like, go to Seattle, England puts up a Ferris Wheel on the River, Seattle just had to spend money to put one up on Puget Sound, that money could have been used for public safety, like pot holes, drive down many streets in this Country and you will see Traffic Circles, or an accident looking for a place to happen.

Take these States, they want tourist to come and spend money, so what do they do, well Washington State wants to Charge more for gas so that would raise prices to the tourist that they want to bring in, and if it does then they would take that money and blow it like a gambler in Las Vegas.

Now it is Banning words that have been used for years is now Racist, Offensive, or they just don’t like that word because it sounds mushy, like Mailman, Fireman, Milkman, Policeman, you can go on and on, and people today will not be happy and will always find some thing they don’t like, if you are not suppose to say man, then what do you call a Woman or Women, if you are not able to use the term man when it comes to Wo— or Wo— what do you call them then to make them Happy.

This is just like the Days when Wo— were burning their Bras, how long did that last, people have to forget about words and start getting this Country back from haters, ever since this administration got in to power, every thing Martin Luther King stood for has been wasted on to days society who only want to create problems, so what did Mr. Kings words mean, or did he lose his life for nothing? I think he was right, but to many people on both sides that don’t want to see change, it seems that people today want to see this Country go back to Foreign Rule and have the Government tell you what to do and take care of you.

Seattle City Hall Considers Banning ‘Offensive’ Words

By Gillian Mohney
Aug 4, 2013

City Officials in Seattle are defending an internal memo that questions the use of certain terms such as “brown bag” (as in “brown-bag lunch”) or “citizen” in a government setting.

According to the Seattle Office of Civil Rights, those terms can be deemed offensive or have a history of being offensive and therefore should not be used.

“Luckily, we’ve got options,” Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo. “For ‘citizens,’ how about ‘residents?’”

Banning Offensive Words in Government

The Office for Civil Rights contends that city government serves all residents of Seattle whether or not they are citizens.

In addition, the use of “brown bag” could unintentionally bring up racist connotations, according to Bronstein.

“It used to be a way people could judge skin color,” Bronstein said in a phone interview with ABC News affiliate KOMO-TV in Seattle. According to the memo, other options are available to city employees such as “sack lunch” or “lunch-and-learn.

The memo comes after the state legislature voted to remove gender specific words from official records, meaning words such as “freshman” and “journeymen” will be replaced by “first-year” and “journey-level” respectively.

Americans Are Blind And Stupid

Comment By Bob L.
12-30-2012

120223_49_5_Percent_Do_Not_Pay_TaxesIf You Did Not See This Coming Than You ARE A Blind and Stupid Idiot.

People think Obamacare is just the cats meow, well the bomb is just about to drop on what you want.

People who understood what Obamacare was all about was trying to warn every one, but you thought that the Republicans were lying, well the truth is going to clean out your pocket-book, now and the next FOUR YEARS thanks to the Democrats, you were warned and now you are going to pay the WORLD for what you just had to have without knowing the outcome.

Lets start a new saying: HE WHO WANTS IS BLIND AND STUPID, better known as GREEDY, you always gotta have what you don’t need, but every one else has to pay for it.

When the Governments raise Taxes, WHO pays, the low-income and WHY, Companies Leave, or Go Out Of Business, then people lose their jobs, they get less money to buy a product, lose their Home, or sell their home and leave the state to find a job, you can go on and on and the out come is always the same loss in revenue, such as, get people to stop smoking Cigarettes lost money, so they raised Taxes to compensate and more quit more loss, are you smart enough with all that College Education, well I think the people with out that Education can see it, and then you have Public Employees want more money, and the end is, who is paying the TAXES YOU IDIOT, if you had a brain between those ears you could see it.

It is a vicious cycle, THE MORE THEY TAX THE LESS JOBS TO BE HAD, THE LESS PEOPLE CAN AFFORD TO BUY. Dah, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out or does it.

The Rich Will Pay More Taxes Next Year No Matter What

CNNMoney.com
By Tami Luhby | CNNMoney.com
Fri, Dec 28 2012

The rich will pay more in taxes next year regardless of the outcome of the fiscal cliff. That’s because two new taxes enacted to fund President Obama’s health care reform are kicking in come January.

The new levies will help foot the bill for the program to expand health care coverage for the uninsured, which involves government subsidies for lower- and middle-income Americans.

The vast majority of taxpayers will escape unscathed, however. Fewer than 2% will be subject to the new taxes, said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center.

Here’s what’s coming:

Medicare payroll tax: Single taxpayers earning more than $200,000 and couples making more than $250,000 will have to pay an additional 0.9% payroll tax on the amount they earn above those thresholds.

Unlike traditional payroll taxes, however, this tax will be based on household income, not individual earnings. So couples may find themselves subject to it even if they each make less than $250,000.

That could lead to a surprise at tax time since employers withhold payroll taxes only on their own workers.

For instance, if a husband and wife each earn $175,000, they will owe the additional tax, but their employers likely will not have withheld it. So they will owe $900.

Investment income tax: Wealthier taxpayers with investment income could be subject to an additional 3.8% levy. Investment income includes interest, dividends and capital gains, among other things.

The formula is somewhat complicated. Only those with modified adjusted gross incomes above a threshold of $200,000, or $250,000 if married, need be concerned.

But filers don’t always owe tax on all their investment income. It’s just on the investment income that exceeds the threshold.

For example, if a married couple has income of $300,000, of which $275,000 is from wages and $25,000 is from investments, they would owe the tax on all the investment income, or $950 in taxes.

But if the same couple had $125,000 in investment income, they would owe tax only on $50,000, or $1,900 in taxes, because that’s the amount that exceeds the threshold.

Deduction for medical expenses: Also, it will become harder to deduct medical expenses, though this deduction is more common among middle class taxpayers.

Until now, taxpayers could deduct medical expenses that exceeded 7.5% of their adjusted gross income. This level is rising to 10% next year.

One-third of the people who took this deduction had income in the $50,000 to $100,000 range in 2010, according to a CNNMoney analysis of Internal Revenue Service data. Only a tiny fraction of the rich took advantage of this deduction because their high incomes made it hard to reach the threshold.

Driver, high on pot, killed woman in wreck

Comment by Bob L.
11-11-2012

Washington, and Colorado just passed a law for Medical Marijuana, but it seems that the law was miss leading, here in Washington they kept saying Medical, not Recreational, now we have death with Guns, Alcohol, and now  Marijuana. (of a drug or medication) used for recreation  and enjoyment rather than to treat a medical condition: recreational drugs such as marijuana and alcohol.

Where is this Drug going to come from Mexico and who is going to profit??? Politicians are known to be GOOD LIARS.

This could have been in a School zone with kids getting out of School, or it could be any where people get together on the street or parking lot, is this what you want to see happen by allowing this law to stay legal.

Now with all these Dangerous laws being passed, laws should be stiffened and not just a slap on the hand because it is now legal, and if the Courts don’t enforce tougher penalties then you should be able to sue Judges, Lawyers and any one who has it put on a ballot as an accessory, just like you would for aiding and abetting or wrongful death, because they are just as guilty as if they were there to pull the trigger.

Charge: Driver, high on pot, killed woman in Interbay wreck

By LEVI PULKKINEN, SEATTLEPI.COM STAFF
Thursday, November 8, 2012

A 49-year-old man accused of killing a woman during a crash in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood has been charged with vehicular homicide following allegations he was high on marijuana when the crash occurred.

Filing charges earlier this week, King County prosecutors contend Timothy W. Durden caused an eight-car pileup on Elliott Avenue West when he drove into traffic on July 17.

Rosemary Tempel, 56, was killed in the crash, which also saw a 63-year-old woman injured. Durden also was hurt in the wreck.

At 6:20 a.m., Durden was driving his Jeep Grand Cherokee northwest on Elliott when he cut into a two-way center lane and drove with traffic for some time, a Seattle detective told the court.

Durden then veered into southbound traffic, sideswiping a car waiting to turn from the two-way center lane, the detective continued.

The Renton man’s SUV then drove over Tempel’s Subaru Impreza, crushing her. She was rushed to Harborview Medical Center, where she died.

That initial collision caused a chain reaction that saw five other cars damaged. A piece of Durden’s car – likely its right wheel – slammed into an oncoming Subaru Forester; the driver of the car suffered a broken arm when she collided with another vehicle to avoid Durden’s.

Responding to the 125-foot-long crash scene, firefighters pulled Durden from his SUV and took him to Harborview.

According to charging documents, Durden told police he used marijuana medicinally but denied using any immediately before the crash.

A blood test showed undigested THC – the chemical in marijuana that acts on the brain – was in his bloodstream, the detective continued. Two grams of marijuana were found near his crashed car, as were several business cards from a medical marijuana dispensary.

“This information explains Durden’s delayed response to the threat posed by the presence” of the car stopped in the turn lane, the detective told the court. “It also explains Durden’s lack of situational awareness as to his vehicle’s position in the roadway.”

Durden has been charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. He is not currently jailed.

Tac. Chev., you can go on and on and you can see the foot prints of all these groups that have put a lot of these companies out of business or it was their greed, but still a lot of Jobs were lost and never replaced, Go to Seattle and see what they are doing for the price of wanting more Stadiums, they don’t care if it chases business out or makes it hard for them to operate, all they can say is we WANT and we will get it no matter what we have to do, even if it mean the cost of jobs.

Will Seattle be a good place to live in 20 years?

Comment By Bob L.
08-13-2012

Tore it down to build TWO new ones, now they owe money for three maybe four Stadiums. Is the Taxpayer getting any restitution for the waste of this money.

Where are they coming up with all this money to do all this and build a Tunnel, and what will the impact on jobs going to be if they do build that fourth Stadium next to the other two, they don’t seem to care, just as long as they get what THEY (the Yuppies) want, all you are doing is WANTING your selves in to Bankruptcy, County wide and Personal.

Will Seattle be a good place to live in 20 years? What a laugh, Seattle needs to look back about fifty years (50)and see what the changes have been and not to the good, because over the years Seattle and King County have gotten so greedy, they are now in the same place as other Cities going broke, and they still can not see why.
