Constitutional Gun Control – My Letter to President Obama

President Barack H. Obama 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500 Tuesday, January 15, 2013  Dear Mr. President: I am writing to address the issues of firearms and firearm-related incidents plaguing The United States of America. I had an epiphany recently; I suddenly saw, in very stark terms, that “assault weapons,” and all that customarily accompanies such weapons (e.g., high-capacity magazines), are protected by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Further, any typical “squad-level” weapon, such as an M-60 machine gun, LAW rockets, and M-203 40 MM grenade-launchers, also are protected by the Constitution. Before I go on to explain my [ ... ]

The Corporate Tax Rate Myth Myth

This is my comment regarding a video of Warren Buffet, speaking on the subject of corporate taxes. See the video here: http://thepoliticalcarnival.net/2012/02/27/video-it-is-a-myth-that-american-corporations-are-paying-35-percent-or-anything-like-it/ , on www.thepoliticalcarnival.net. It took me and my lightly-fried brain about 1-1/2 hours to write this comment, I hope to hell it makes sense… Okay, we’re a little scattered here. It is NOT a myth that the corporate tax rate is 35%; IT IS. What seems to be implied here by Buffet is that this rate doesn’t matter, because corporation actually pay a lower EFFECTIVE rate. It DOES matter! It is the percentage applied to TAXABLE INCOME [ ... ]

My Appeal to President Obama Re NDAA

VETO the NDAA, until it definitively & expressly PROHIBITS treatment of US citizens as “enemy combatants”, unless they are proved as such in OPEN COURT. Also, the NDAA must expressly reaffirm our Constitution as the FINAL WORD on these matters, until & unless a court says a person may be treated otherwise, and then ONLY on a case-by-case basis. There is NOTHING worse than taking away our citizen’s RIGHTS, without due process, in the name of “security”. If you do THAT, America as we know it ceases to exist, and then what is really left worth securing? Thank you. PS, CLOSE GITMO.
