Tradebum’s Rant

In fact, Reagan was less a fan of Teddy, who was a liberal, than Calvin Coolidge, who was a conservative’s conservative. Coolidge, when faced with a Depression worse than liberals Hoover, FDR and Obama, cut taxes and government spending and prosperity ensued with the largest gain for the middle class in history.

Lech Walsea is the most famous union man of the cold war and is the only Nobel Prize winner that actually achieved something earth shakingly of note for good. He along with Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul brought down the Iron Curtain. Lech recently commented on the new “Hopey Changey” America.
…………….
WALESA (via translator): “The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they're getting weak. But they don't lead morally and politically anymore. The world has no leadership. The United States was always the last resort and hope for all other nations. There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope.”

it's working Michael ...
i've suspected for some time now, that by posting controversial topics, you're actually trying to be of service to an old friend in his declining years and waning good sense - and in spite of his problems with getting the facts straight, he still manages to assemble legible sentences ...
you go jim ...

Paul,
Thanks for the legiable comment. If true, that is an improvement over my youth. Now I just have to work on the spelling.

Bipartisan hope for tax relief

Senators Gregg(R) and Wyden(D) have proposed reform to replace the Bush tax cuts. The reforms would have 3 tiers,the highest of which would be 35% vs. the 2011 rate of 39.5% The corporate tax rate would drop from to 24% from the current 35% and the 2011 rate of 39.5%(if Bush cuts are allowed to expand). There would be tax breaks on capital gains as well. Supposedly that WH has been consulted as this proposal was put together. If in fact Obama threw his support behind it,we are likely to see a massive increase in business activity,employment and the markets. If this was coupled with across the board spending cuts, I may have to become an Obama supporter.
