Hello there, Toplofty here!
Tonight waiting on the big debate and
choosing my favorite.
It was Rand Paul but he seems to
be in a quagmire with his selection of a "Super Pac" leader, who is
Walker is out because he has much to do
with the destruction of the "middle class."
Don't like the way he treated
schools, teachers, government employees and his disrespect for the
Unions and the Union workers.
Bush is too wishy-washy, is evidently a
very nice gentleman, and exactly right about his father (one fine
person), as is the entire Bush family.
The "Texas" Bushs would have been
very admirable, if not for his Vice President, which, I feel,
created a "deadly duo."
The atrocities that went on in
Iraq, for no other purpose than a power grab and an "open
checkbook" to Haliburton and the coglomorates surrounding it.
Don't think we need any more "War
It’s time for
a "World Bank of PEACE" and possibly a new "agreement" to bring
"Peace" especially to those in the "Middle East" --
"The Big I"
has to go and they will when they are cornered (all dressed up and
no place to go.)
Some of these billionaires need to put
technology to work and find "homes" for those many who are
I read about a town in
___________ that had become safe, modernized, jobs created and most
of the population had become educated, even the girls.
It had been a tourist spot before
9/11 and is evidently a place of beauty.
There were still some rough
spots, such as not enough electricity but there was fresh water,
food, housing, community...
There is a
wealthy Prince who evidently has helped many through his
has a budget of $600 million and operates in 30 countries.
So what if
technology were put to work to find "Utopias" that could be
developed as "safe havens" and into cities with schools, community
gardens, fresh water...
Did I not just read that a "Saudi
Prince" was giving most of his wealth to Philanthropy?
Technology could help with
co-ordination of this, also.
If security could ever be figured
This would be
a good project for some retired world leaders. No?
Here's a "yell out" to those Kurds, who
have shown such ambition, such bravery and fabulous character in
their fight for their communities and countries.
How about those Kurdish women?
Good people, all around!
Where was I?
I am hoping that the Iran Deal
will go through.
Hoping, also, their people
(especially the youth) will have opportunities open up to them and
they will help bring "peace" to the Middle East, and let our
prisoners come home.
In a way, we have their money tied up.
We certainly know how to "become"
If we follow the Bible and such good
Christians, does the "hotbed" situation of much of the world, not
seem like the Apocalypse and the 2nd coming of Christ!
Has the World become so literally evil,
Christ finds the only solution is to clear out to start over again?
Then what do we have to lose!
Maybe, the New World Order will
stop the brutality!
Life was so much easier and less painful
when we knew so much less (news, just a few times a day and not
much about politics).
Cable will do us in!!
President biding his time
going after Snowden. NO rush. Guess he is telling Snowden he isn't
worth the trouble to rush bringing him back
...Bet Congress takes its
good "ole" time working on the "Immigration Bill."
...reading a book that shows
what a "monster" Congress has created for the IRS and how
dysfunction it is. Congress evidently likes it that way. Congress
also has a bad habit of approving a "program" to make IRS work more
efficiently and effectively – then pulls the funding Seems Congress
keeps breaking the kneecaps of IRS and then finds anything to make
IRS look bad. maybe a trillion lost in individual tax fraud and
scams and another trillion in corporate loopholes.
Toplofty.org for the article tomorrow.
...Paula Deen misspoke 40
years ago. Racism or a bad situation.
Paula said she was being
robbed with a gun to her head!
It's Time to Come Up with A Viable Plan...
Hey there! It;s time
to come up with a plan. A plan for the next 4 years in office. This
The Jobs Bill now sitting
in Congress. This Bill should have restrictions for States, only,
who will use it to actually produce jobs. Jobs that update schools,
roads, bridges, communities. If it is true that 142 elementary
schools in Chicago do not have libraries - that is sinful.
Governors should start working immediately on how to best use their
dollars and go to cities and areas most in need. Do not send it to
Governors that used it previously to balance their budgets. Have
the Governors office fill out “complete sheets” detailing how they
used their previous dollars.
"Kill the 2006 Post Office
bill and re-evaluate the status. The Post Office hires many
veterans. I guarantee you, there is not a company out there that
can deliver mail to every corner in the country for 44 cents. Cut
Saturday service - turn the pension and medical contributions back.
Mail plenty of letters, send those packages by parcel post. Those
postal workers do a marvelous job and have been since they carried
the mail by horseback! It is as much a part of our history as Mt.
Vernon and Monticello.
Have a great program for
veterans, soldiers and first responders. Ten years to decide
whether cancer victims First Responders should get treatment is
absolutely scandalous! Those First Responders should never have to
prove that ground zero caused seriously illnesses.
If we don’t take care of
our heroes and fighters, who deserve the care, we are no more than
a “frivolous, "showoff nation, with little ethics and lots of
Change the Food Stamp
program to cover only basic food groups. The reason I say this,
-there are too many mixed messages out there - that just do not
make sense! One is that the poorest people are the heaviest!
Another is that Americans throw billions of pounds of food away
each year! And fraud seems to run rampant in these programs. The
Obama Administration and the DOJ seem to have done a good job at
going after the fraud even though Congress tied their hands as far
as hiring nearly enough agents to keep up. Much of the fraud comes
from the "private business.." The same applies to medicaid and
medicare. Much of the problem is the lack of rules, regulations and
discipline in these fields. When Congress throws money to
Corporations, with no accountability- than you get very wealthy
“lobbyists” and very expensive medical care. The doctors, the
medical profession and the patients suffer and "K" Street Congress
leftovers stuff their pockets. "Newt Grinch and Rick Sanatorium."
Do not end the deductions for home mortgages and corporate medical
insurance paid for partially by your company. Do you realize, if
this is changed, your health insurance cost twice as much because
you lose the portion the company pays into it.Tax Reform. End the
Bush tax cuts – except for $250,000 to $500,000 wages.
Drop the tax cut for the
payroll tax. It weakens the Social Security program and gives
Congress more fuel for the fire. When a Republican says they want
to let you "invest your Social Security" in the stock market” what
they are really saying is "give us your social security and you are
on your own. Don’t worry about us – the lobbyists will give us a
nice cut and we will have a nice government pension. Just like the
hospitalization, you lose the half contribution that the company
pays in for you.. Oh, if we "send the country's economy off the
cliff - you lose it all - but don't worry about us! We got ours up
A "fair and just"
immigration policy to all Americans and viable immigrants.
As far as defense, get some
auditors in there, clean it up - and clear out the waste! Leave the
soldiers and employees alone.
Education - seems like we
have realized the problem after 20 years. The country cannot
continue to "chop off educators heads" when the economy shows down.
And it does seem we are recognizing the need for “trade schools,
"tech schools" and "non-college" career schools.
Last, but not least, why do
we have a third world country election system! This system needs to
be overhauled starting the day after the election. There is no
reason each State does not have their registrations cleaned up a
year before an election and clean them up every six months – and no
reason, Governors can make up their own election laws and then
throw out lawsuits, left and right, just months before an election.
Cut all subsidies and tax
breaks to business.
Let all the Bush cuts
Drop all the tax loopholes,
including the “carried interest” that allows money to go out
of the country before it is ever taxed in this country.
Put a 50% fee on all
political contributions and super pacs that operate under the 501 C
4′s and actually have those fees go to the States for “social
welfare.” This is the rules of the 501C 4′s but all goes to
support “politics” and nothing for society. The States can be
limited to what they use the money for – education, community
Let “free market” have its
freedom. No more government dollars for any “private
enterprises. Not one red cent! No more hundreds of
millions to build stadium halls, to prop up businesses.
No more government money to
sponsor “horse shows,” “canoodling” or any activities
run by private business and not for the good of society as a whole.
There! Takes us much
closer to a balanced budget!
