Call for HELP

We all know that the cost of health-care is very high. It is especially high if you have an unexpected hospital stay. This is a call for help to everyone and anyone for Aaron Schulz. Aaron is a 22 year old young man that came down with an unexpected serious health problem recently. While at home he became short of breath, felt some chest pain, and became dizzy. His family brought him to the hospital where they realized that the Poplar Bluff Hospital in Missouri could not handle his immediate care needs and flew him by helicopter to St. John's Mercy in St. Louis, MO. Doctors at the hospital at first diagnosed Cushings disease but further tests are pending. All of these tests and the hospital stay are far more expensive than you could ever imagine. Aaron went in for surgery for complications and blood clots. This makes almost three weeks in the hospital and the bills keep getting larger.

Aaron grew up in Poplar Bluff, Missouri and graduated from Poplar Bluff High School. His health has never been a problem and to have it strike him down at such a young age is a serious matter. Aaron could only get part time work with the Department of Agriculture and didn't qualify for health insurance with his employer.

If you can donate to help with the hospital bills it will be greatly appreciated by Aaron and his family. Please give whatever you can afford in these hard times. All donations are going directly to pay for his medical care. Donations are not tax deductible. Well wishes and prayers are also greatly appreciated. Feel free to leave a comment below with your kind thoughts.

The family has arranged an account with a local bank to help pay for Aaron's care. Anything you can donate and send to help pay some of the expenses will be appreciated.

Please mail donations to:

Poplar Bluff Federal Credit Union
C/O Aaron Schulz
2438 Katy Lane
Poplar Bluff, MO 63901

Thank you and God bless from the entire Schulz family.

Loud No to Trump for President

I'm thinking that Donald Trump sounds cool as president. Then we could install slot machines at the White House and really gamble our future away. But our hair would look fabulous!
Is that really a double comb over???

Tax Time for Some and Not Others

The Bernie Sanders Ten, per release....

1) Exxon Mobil made $19 billion in profits in 2009. Exxon not only paid no federal income taxes, it actually received a $156 million rebate from the IRS, according to its SEC filings.

2) Bank of America received a $1.9 billion tax refund from the IRS last year, although it made $4.4 billion in profits and received a bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department of nearly $1 trillion.

3) Over the past five years, while General Electric made $26 billion in profits in the United States, it received a $4.1 billion refund from the IRS.

4) Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year after it made $10 billion in profits in 2009.

5) Boeing, which received a $30 billion contract from the Pentagon to build 179 airborne tankers, got a $124 million refund from the IRS last year.

6) Valero Energy, the 25th largest company in America with $68 billion in sales last year received a $157 million tax refund check from the IRS and, over the past three years, it received a $134 million tax break from the oil and gas manufacturing tax deduction.

7) Goldman Sachs in 2008 only paid 1.1 percent of its income in taxes even though it earned a profit of $2.3 billion and received an almost $800 billion from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department.

8) Citigroup last year made more than $4 billion in profits but paid no federal income taxes. It received a $2.5 trillion bailout from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury.

9) ConocoPhillips, the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2007 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks through the oil and gas manufacturing deduction.

10) Over the past five years, Carnival Cruise Lines made more than $11 billion in profits, but its federal income tax rate during those years was just 1.1 percent. - Chicago Sun Times

Just saying. Big business really needs a tax cut to create jobs. Nobody said where they would create them though did they? Like this on Facebook to speak loud and clear on the bullshit that is trickle down taxes. Big business pays less so that you can pay more. It works if you are a Republican! We all should endorse this plan of corporations making billions and paying little if no taxes to make more jobs anywhere but here in America because it is the right thing to do... NOT!

If you think it is wrong that big corporations pay little or no taxes and yet make billions of dollars in profits then please "LIKE" this and pass it on to everyone you know on Facebook!!!! Maybe we could balance the federal budget if everyone was on the same playing field! There is no common sense in this form of taxation. NONE!

Online Poker Sites Seized

According to the latest report from the Los Angeles Times, the top three online poker sites were shut down and seized by the FBI for money laundering activities. PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker have been shut down and the websites now only offer a FBI and Department of Justice notification that the poker game is over…

The founders of the three largest online poker sites were indicted on Friday in what could serve as a death blow to a thriving industry.

Eleven executives at PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and a number of their affiliates were charged with bank fraud and money laundering in an indictment unsealed in a Manhattan court. Two of the defendants were arrested on Friday morning in Utah and Nevada. Federal agents are searching for the others. – LA TIMES

Check out the links here if you like:

Full Tilt Poker
Absolute Poker

No need to ante up for the next poker hand anymore. That is unless you would like to play a few hands of poker with an FBI agent for coffee money. You can read the full indictment HERE.


***Thank you Memeorandum for the link...

Arizona to Tax Fat People

In an announcement today from Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona, she plans on taxing fat people and smokers for being unhealthy. Arizona like many other states is running a budget deficit and the Governor has to be creative with her ideas to balance the budget. Late reports and rumor is that McDonald’s Corporation is pissed and is refusing to install scales at every register and drive through in Arizona. I honestly don’t think she is wrong. She is right on track. Being a far right wing nut job myself, I would like to propose a national masturbation tax that would balance the federal budget in less than three months and pay off our nation’s entire debt in less than two years. But I digress to this report from ABC News...

As part of a plan to revamp the state's Medicaid program, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced on Thursday that she is proposing fees for adults who lead unhealthy lives.

Childless adults who are obese or suffer from a chronic condition and who fail to work with their doctor to meet specific goals would be charged $50 annually. The $50 annual fee also would apply to all childless adult smokers. – ABC News

My plan starts with any subscribers to pornographic magazines will be forced to pay a non-tax deductible premium for any issues with pictures in it. We all know you don’t buy that kind of magazine for its articles. My plan would also include placing key IRS agents at every municipal water treatment facility to test the waters so to speak. This data would then be collated and appropriate tax bills would be sent out by neighborhood. Police thy self is the theory behind this creative revenue generating theory. I’ve emailed several high tech water treatment companies and asked them for their guidance on who should be monitored more closely and they all came up with the same reply. Any household with teenage boys will work.

The second stage of my plan involves the honor system that will be secretly taped by the Department of Homeland Security in all Catholic Church confessionals. Pay your penance, pay your tax. To speed up the payment process, debit card machines will be installed in all confessional booths. We of course will have to grandfather in all right wing perverts under the provision of “They have been doing it since childhood and didn’t know it was taxable income (or should it be outcome) in some diluted clause in the bill.

Please feel free to add your thoughts to the plan I’ve set forth. Together we can make America safe from fat people, smokers, and masturbators. Balancing the budget and paying off our debt is just a bonus on the backs of those hot dog eating, nicotine smoking, and self pleasuring idiots from the left side of the aisle. Governor Brewer should be running for President! NOT!!!!! She is just nuts.

My thanks to Memeorandum for the heads up and the opportunity report on this very important issue.

Not the Papamoka

Who Owns the Sun

With the rising cost of energy these days there will be an opposite reaction from the public to seek out renewable energy sources for their energy needs. Let the games begin when it comes to garage mechanics coming out with the next best solar powered contraption.

"I'd put my money on solar energy...I hope we don't have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that." Thomas Edison, in conversation
with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, March 1931

What are you thinking about doing?
