Debating The Fair Tax… (Part 2)

February 26th, 2010

Members of Congress are looking for a change in the national tax code to be a stimulus for small businesses here in the USA. So, the debate goes on concerning a Fair Tax or a national Sales Tax.

Economists are saying that a national Sales Tax would immediately reduce the cost of compliance in running an income tax program by over 90% creating a savings of close to $500 billion dollars annually.

Replacing our current tax structure would increase incentives for business while saving large sums of money on the national level. The new tax structure would replace personal and corporate income taxes, gift and estate taxes, capital gains tax, social security taxes, Medicare and self-employment taxes.

Man, we would sure miss those taxes, wouldn’t we? Roughly 43% of all Americans favor a national tax based on consumption and 38% are opposed. One of the concerns I heard from comments on Part 1 of the Fair Tax was that not enough revenue would be generated for our national budget.

Other economists aren’t buying that argument. I think they will just agree to disagree on cash flow.

It does seem to me that people in general will be smart enough to decide on how to utilize money for consumption of products and paying a Fair Tax on their purchases.

Let me make that decision… not the government.

Lifestyle of a Baby Boomer…

February 24th, 2010

In a recent survey of Senior Citizens the ideal age was judged to be seventy-four. So, the lifestyle of a Baby Boomer will be the most fulfilling down the road a ways, right?

Well, that’s reason to celebrate for us Baby Boomers. The check is in the mail. Would we ever have imagined at twenty-one that life would be wonderful at seventy-four? Still, that’s good news for all of us. We apparently have much to look forward to.

History tells us we’re living very well right now. Advances in medicine, transportation, technology, and many other parts of life put us in a world far ahead of anything mankind has ever seen before.

We Boomers are benefiting from all of these advances as we shed former responsibilities and move into a lifestyle that is more care free. This life is never easy but the road is a lot smoother now that family responsibilities are not so hectic, and expectations are not so high.

We have seen much in our lifetimes and there is no reason to believe that the world is going to slow down at all. My guess is that we will see quite a bit more before we hang it up.

If Seniors say that the mid-seventies are as good as it gets than I’ll continue to really enjoy my sixties and look forward to life for several years to come.

“Grandma’s Hands”… Sung by Bill Withers

February 24th, 2010

Singer Bill Withers always knew who to go to when he was growing up. Go to Grandma. I love this song titled “Grandma’s Hands.” Withers has a great voice and tells a great story.

I have also included “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers which I think was his best. You can also hear “Lean On Me” which was probably his most successful tune. Listen to all three and enjoy.

“Perpetuum Jazille”… Amazing Music

February 23rd, 2010

I put this on my blog last summer because it was so much fun to watch. Perpetuum Jazille does an amazing rendition of “Africa” by the group Toto.

The new version gives homage to the detail of this popular hit while creating new sound affects of their own that are a blast to listen to. The song seems to be making the rounds these days on the Internet so I brought it back for you new readers.

Crank up the sound, go full screen, and enjoy!
