April 17, 2014, 11:19 pm2014 Tax Return
Remember you will not feel any of this until you file your 2014 tax return(s); NEXT YEAR!
Here is what happened on January 1st 2014:
Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%
Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%
Remember this fact: if you have money, the democrats want it.
These taxes were all passed only with democrat votes, no republicans voted to do these taxes.
These taxes were all passed under the affordable care act,
otherwise known as Obama care. If you have sitting Democratic
Representatives or Senators in your state who are running for
election this year, here is your chance to get rid of them.

This is really bad news:
From Duffel Blog:
82nd Airborne Division To Lose Famed ‘Airborne’ Status
FORT BRAGG, N.C. — The nation’s premier Airborne infantry division, the 82nd Airborne, will lose its hallowed airborne status in the next fiscal year, Army officials announced Thursday.
Reasons for the change include the high cost of maintenance and fuel in the face of looming budget cuts, and the higher-than-average injury and fatality rate for soldiers conducting training jumps, according to a statement from U.S. Army Forces Command.
“As much as it helps esprit de corps and a sense of unit pride,” said Army spokesperson Col. Mike Mulally, “It hurts in terms of readiness, injuries and the bottom line. The time spent on jumps could be used for more relevant training. We would save over $4 million a year in facility and equipment upkeep.”
“And let’s not forget,” Mulally added, “The awful fatality incidents we suffer about once a year. Every time the general has to give another flag to a wife or mother whose soldiers were lost on a training jump, we have to ask ourselves: Why are we training on an insertion technique that hasn’t been relevant in over fifty years?”
As expected, the announcement caused much consternation among former and current 82nd Airborne veterans.
“This is a horse....,” said 1st Lt. Jeremy Dallas, a paratrooper and former Airborne School instructor. “Back before I went to OCS, I did a combat jump with the 173rd into Bashur during the initial invasion. FORSCOM doesn’t think that airborne training is relevant? What do they think that jump was? A Hollywood?”
Noting that the airfield had been secured hours earlier than the Bashur assault, Pakistani Gen. Abdul Mansour al-Islamabadi told reporters the “Americans missed their drop zone so badly that it took them fifteen hours to reassemble. And let’s not forget that the 173rd almost caused an international incident when they mistook some of our Turkish allies for Iraqis. They arrested and beat the out of them, even though they were wearing Turkish army uniforms. Because I guess all us brown people look alike.”
“But sure, whatever, call it a combat jump, I don’t care,” he added.
The 82nd Airborne Division will immediately cease all airborne training, and at the end of the 2014 fiscal year will officially cease to be an Airborne unit. It will retain the ”Airborne” designation in its unit title, but much like the 101st Division, will not be a real airborne unit any longer.
The 173rd Airborne Brigade, stationed in Vicenza, Italy, will remain on Airborne status for the next fiscal year, although anonymous sources in the Pentagon confirmed that it too will soon revert to leg infantry.

April 5, 2014, 8:01 pmHow to destroy Russia's economy
1) ban the use of coal.
2) mandate that Russia goes on Obamacare.
3) don't allow any drilling on Russian public land.
4) have the EPA pass rulings on Russian business.
5) re-define the full time Russian work week to 30
6) raise the Russian minimum wage.
7) mandate overtime pay for gov’t employees.
8) Demand the Russian Government pay free Welfare benefits to un-qualified Citizens and Illegal immigrants.
I could go on but I guarantee these measures would bring the Russia economy to its knees; it has been
working in the U. S. since 2009.
April 5, 2014, 12:58 amHow true...
If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared, what would be the most difficult thing to explain about life today? One answer: "I possess a device in my pocket that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man. I use it to look at pictures of cars and get into arguments with strangers."

Comedian Argus Hamilton: "Obama arrived in Rome Thursday where he held a joint press conference with Italy's prime minister before driving across town to met with Pope Francis. The president could hardly contain his joy when he walked into the Vatican. He thought the sign said Vacation."

March 13, 2014, 12:48 amThings Lil Speedy Would Never Tell You
The Knoxville Horror:
In January of 2007, a young white couple was on a date in Knoxville, TN. Their names were Channon Gail Christian, 21, and Hugh Christopher Newsom, Jr., 23. They were attacked by three black males. Newsom was gang raped and tortured to death in front of his girlfriend. His body was then mutilated.
Channon was gang raped and tortured for hours at a home. Her body was then mutilated and chopped into pieces.
The couple was targeted because they were white. The media gave the story very little coverage. This prompted outrage online. A few pundits, like Michelle Malkin, attacked the media for censoring the story. Eventually the media was forced to reluctantly cover the story. Some outlets even blamed "racists on the Internet" for forcing them to give the story some attention.
Since 2007, numerous major media bosses have confessed to censoring black crime. This includes the creator of the TV show cops, and editors from the LA Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and New York Times.
Nearly two years later, the UK Daily Mail blasted the US media for hiding the story from the public. They published the statement "Ironically, the case has now generated more publicity surrounding the furore over whether or not political correctness was behind the US media’s decision to largely ignore the story than it did for the murders themselves."

Black mobs attack whites - no hate crime charges.
There are thousands more of these, Speedy. All I posted was facts about incidents the mainstream media is afraid to report. If you think that's 'racist' then you're the racist, just like the thugs committing these crimes.

January 23, 2014, 6:11 pmThings kids say
Kids say the cutest things!What Is Butt Dust???What, you ask, is Butt dust'? Read on and you'll discover the joy in it! These have to be original and genuine. No adult is this creative!!
JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby sister. After a while he asked: 'Mom why have you got two? Is one for hot and one for cold milk?'
MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was.. Granny replied she was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, 'If you don't remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six.'
STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. 'I love you so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom window.'
BRITTANY (age 4) had an ear ache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration, her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: 'How does it know it's me?'
SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups. 'Please don't give me this juice again,' she said, 'It makes my teeth cough.'DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: 'How much do I cost?'
CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried When his Mom asked what was troubling him, he replied, 'I don't know what'll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in it?'
MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked his dad: 'Why is he whispering in her mouth?'
TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, 'Why doesn't your skin fit your face?'
JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: 'The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.' Concerned, James asked: 'What happened to the flea?'The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget .This particular Sunday sermon...'Dear Lord,' the minister began, with arms extended toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. 'Without you, we are but dust...' He would have continued but at that moment my very obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite audibly in her shrill little four year old girl voice, 'Mom, what is butt dust?'
Make sure you pass this one on and spread the smiles...
January 10, 2014, 7:17 pmMMA Fighter May Face Charges After Fighting Off Four Home Invaders
Well this bites:
MMA Fighter May Face Charges After Fighting Off Four Home Invaders, Killing One in the Process
That was about 15 minutes after one of the suspects allegedly called Torrez' home threatening, "I'll kill you and your family I'll go to your house."
According to Torrez' lawyer, C.J. McElhinney, one of the attackers brought a street made shank along for the ride, while another grabbed a knife from the kitchen.
Unfortunately for them, their weapons proved to be ineffective against Torrez' MMA training. He quickly dispatched them, killing one of the attackers, severely breaking another's jaw, while the remaining two tucked their tails between their legs and ran for dear life.
Those two were rounded up shortly after by authorities, and all three surviving suspects will face aggravated battery and aggravated robbery charges.
"Rather than let himself be a victim, Joe fought back, and he fought back for his life," McElhinney said during a 30-minute interview with MMALockup. "In the ensuing struggle, regrettably, one of those intruders lost his life, and another suffered what can be described as a severely broken jaw."
"Joe was in great shape, he'd been training for a fight. I think his MMA training -- without a doubt -- was the edge in that fight. Being able to defend yourself and having that confidence is a huge advantage in any kind of fight, and I don't think they were prepared for what came in response."
However, instead of being commended for his valiant efforts while defending his family, charges might be coming at Torrez depending on the outcome of an investigation being conducted by the Dona Ana County sheriff's office.
For now, Torres remains a free man, and he's wisely decided to move his family away from Las Cruces.
"Joe is holding up remarkable well. After this all happened -- I've known Joe for a long time -- I could tell that Joe had been though a very traumatic experience. I could just tell from his demeanor, his bearing, he was shaken up … I advised him that he needed to leave the area because these people are going to be looking for retribution. He took that advice, so he has left the state. He's at a safe place with his family. Now he's just very nervous, very fearful that he's going to have to defend himself against an unjust charge, an unfounded charge, so that's weighing heavily on his mind."
Hopefully, reasonable minds prevail, and Torres doesn't end up getting punished for doing what most of us hope we'll have the courage, strength, and ability to do if we ever find ourselves and our loved ones in similar situation.

Better Read the Fine Print
There is an extremely unpleasant surprise awaiting some Medicaid users. The Seattle Times has the scoop on an older couple who discovered the fine print for Medicaid: "If you're 55 or over, Medicaid can come back after you're dead and bill your estate for ordinary health-care expenses." In other words, Medicaid is a loan payable with your assets when you die. This isn't new, but it's a far bigger problem thanks to ObamaCare, which is going to force many people onto Medicaid who have more assets for seizing than the previously typical Medicaid enrollee. It's just yet another way ObamaCare's a lousy deal.
