The Failure of the Bush Tax Cuts Explained So a Child or Republican Can Understand

 

by TheNewDeal00 

 

I wrote this to make as clear as I possibly could the failure of the Bush tax cuts.

 

Let’s say you own a lemonade stand in a very small town.

 

This town has 100 people living in it. Every day, 50 of the town’s citizens buy your lemonade.

 

To be able to serve the citizens, you have hired 2 of your friends to help you run the stand.

 

You have a solid and loyal customer base and serve half the town lemonade everyday! You’re making a lot of money! Very Good!

 

Of course, you have costs, which means you can’t keep all the money you make. You have to spend money to keep the lemonade stand operating. You have to pay your friends you hired for their work, you have to pay to upkeep and update the stand itself, and you have to pay the town that your lemonade stand is in. However, after this, you are still left with a lot of money and are doing great! You are making what’s called a “profit” because you are charging more for the lemonade than it costs you to make it. This can sound like a dirty trick, but when reasonable, it’s simply business.

 

Why should you have to pay the town (government) for the money YOU made? That’s a great question!

 

You see, without the town, there would be no homes, roads, electricity, running water, police, firemen, hospital, post office, schools, or any civilization. Therefor, you would not be able to run your business in this town.

 

By governing, they create the civilization that your lemonade stand runs and thrives in. So you give them a small amount of your money. These are called “taxes”.

 

In politics, there are two basic beliefs about how much in taxes businesses like yours should pay.

 

One side believes that we should slightly raise taxes on businesses like yours and people who have a lot of money so that the town can raise more money to create jobs so that people not as fortunate as you can work for more money to spend at your lemonade stand.

 

The other side believes that you should pay much lower taxes than you already do. They say that if you keep your money and not contribute to the town you run your lemonade stand in, that you will have more money to create jobs and contribute to the town the way you want to, not the town government’s way.

 

Let’s imagine the last way…

 

Let’s say that you get to keep all the money you make and not have to give any to the town. It’s all yours!

 

Now you can use that money to expand your lemonade stand and even hire a few more of your friends! Maybe even sell different kinds of lemonade! This sounds like a great idea!

 

The problem is that now that you don’t give the town money anymore, the citizens who have a lot less money than you do have to pay more to make up for what you don’t pay. The people that buy your lemonade everyday now have less money, so they aren’t buying your lemonade as much, if at all. They have to cut back.

 

But That’s okay!

 

You still have a lot of money and you just hired two more friends. Now four friends work for you. You also have to pay them, but now that you don’t pay the town, you can easily afford it.

 

However, now that the people of the town have less money, you only serve 25 people a day now. With less customers buying lemonade, your new friends that you hired aren’t needed. In fact, now just you and another friend is all that is needed to serve 25 people. Since it’s bad for your lemonade stand to spend money on employees you don’t need, you have to fire them. :(

 

So now you have cut back on how much you pay your friends, but you are still not making as much money as you did when you had 50 customers a day. So you cut back by buying cheaper lemonade while charging a little more for it. Since you raised your prices, you dropped down to 20 customers a day. But since you need to try and keep making as much money as you always have, you keep cutting back. You pay your friend less for their work. You might not feel good about this, but you don’t want to lose the money you are making for yourself and you business.

 

Eventually, the amount of money you make everyday will stay the same or “Stagnate” and you won’t be able to reach the amount of money you use to make when the citizens of the town had the money to buy your lemonade.

 

You will still have a lot of money for yourself, but your lemonade stand will never recover and sooner or later, a bigger lemonade stand that makes more money everyday will either buy you out or run you out of business.

 

You don’t want that to happen, but still, you like not giving the town the money you worked for.

 

Then you find out that there is another town across the river that lets you pay them even less than the town you are in. Also, the citizens of this town will work for much, much less than the workers you have now. So even though this means you would have to fire all your friends and move your lemonade stand to that town, it would mean you get to keep even more of your money! You would even get to sell your lemonade to your hometown even though it is being made in the other town! Wonderful!

 

The only problem is that now that you’ve closed your lemonade stand, even more people in your hometown have less money because you no longer pay them for work. You are making a lot of money for yourself, but the town you started in is very poor and your lemonade is made cheaper and is not as good as it use to be.

 

You have done very well for yourself and still have a lot of money, but your lemonade stand has suffered greatly and people in your hometown are very angry with you for putting your personal profit over the community you got all that money in. They are the people who bought your lemonade and made it possible for you to have all that money. They are not happy with you and will remember what you did forever.

 

The moral of this story is that having more money does not make you a good person. Getting too carried away with wanting more money can actually make you a horrible person. Money is not evil, it is just pieces of paper. Greed is evil.

 

Being a good person means doing what you feel is right and fair to others, not always what’s best for you.

 

Now you can go outside and play. :)

 

Thank you TheNewDeal00. Sometimes the best explanation for adults is one geared toward children.

WASHINGTON – Just over half of the U.S. House of Representatives called on President Obama to shut down the PLO office in Washington as punishment for its ascension in United Nations status.

“One important way of expressing U.S. disapproval would be to send the message that such actions are not cost-free and that, at a minimum, they result in setbacks to U.S.-Palestinian relations,” said the letter sent Dec. 21, initiated by the incoming and outgoing leaders of both parties on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and signed by 239 members, including leaders such as Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the majority leader, and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the minority whip.

Mr. Wayne LaPieere On Sunday’s Meet The Press:

“If it’s crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy,” LaPierre said in an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press. “I think the American people think it’s crazy not to do it. It’s the one thing that would keep people safe.”

What Americans think is crazy, Mr. LaPierre, is guns flood our streets as it is and now you have ab\n asinine idea to flood our classrooms with guns.

The one thing that would keep people safe, including those 28 who died on Friday December 14th, 2012…..were if there were no handguns/assault weapons available to American citizens.

Can American History Be Trusted? Was John Hanson America’s First Man Of Color To Be POTUS?


By Jueseppi B.

I have been asked this question many times before, was there a African man who held the office of President of The United States, way before Barack Hussein Obama?

 

If you listen to the garbage that comes out of Morgan Freeman’s mouth, you’d end up thinking POTUS Obama is not our first Black President either:

“They just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white – very white American, Kansas, middle America,” the Oscar winner continued. “There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America’s first black president hasn’t arisen yet. He’s not America’s first black president – he’s America’s first mixed-race president.”

 

Now going on Mr. Freeman’s bull shit opinion, there would never be a Black President because there is no man or woman, born in America, of full African decent. All Black Americans are mixed race, including the very ignorant Mr. Freeman.

 

And since the U.S. Constitution prevents one not born in America from being President……Yes. Barack Hussein Obama is America’s first Black President.

 

Or is he……

The First President Of the United States Was A Black Man (John Hanson)
The TMB ^ | January 2007 | Thaddeus Matthews 

Posted on Mon Jan 22 2007 16:38:46 GMT-0600 (Central Standard Time) by mcg2000

 

Let me start black history month a few weeks early. Barack Obama has plans of running for President of the United States, But will he be the first Black President or the 8th Black President? I know this posting will stir controversy but George Washington was not the first President of the U.S. Let’s take a look at history.

 

A “Black” Man, A Moor, John Hanson Was the First President of the United States! 1781-1782 A.D.??? George Washington was really the 8th President of the United States! George Washington was not the first President of the United States. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson. Don’t go checking the encyclopedia for this guy’s name – he is one of those great men that are lost to history. If you’re extremely lucky, you may actually find a brief mention of his name.

 

The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation. This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November 15, 1777. Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land). Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington).

 

In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress. As the first President, Hanson had quite the shoes to fill. No one had ever been President and the role was poorly defined. His actions in office would set precedent for all future Presidents. He took office just as the Revolutionary War ended. Almost immediately, the troops demanded to be paid. As would be expected after any long war, there were no funds to meet the salaries. As a result, the soldiers threatened to overthrow the new government and put Washington on the throne as a monarch.

 

All the members of Congress ran for their lives, leaving Hanson as the only guy left running the government. He somehow managed to calm the troops down and hold the country together. If he had failed, the government would have fallen almost immediately and everyone would have been bowing to King Washington. In fact, Hanson sent 800 pounds of sterling siliver by his brother Samuel Hanson to George Washington to provide the troops with shoes. Hanson, as President, ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as the removal of all foreign flags.

 

This was quite the feat, considering the fact that so many European countries had a stake in the United States since the days following Columbus. Hanson established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents have since been required to use on all official documents. President Hanson also established the first Treasury Department, the first Secretary of War, and the first Foreign Affairs Department. Lastly, he declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today.

 

The Articles of Confederation only allowed a President to serve a one year term during any three year period, so Hanson actually accomplished quite a bit in such little time. Six other presidents were elected after him – Elias Boudinot (1783), Thomas Mifflin (1784), Richard Henry Lee (1785), Nathan Gorman (1786), Arthur St. Clair (1787), and Cyrus Griffin (1788) – all prior to Washington taking office.

 

So what happened? Why don’t we ever hear about the first seven Presidents of the United States? It’s quite simple – The Articles of Confederation didn’t work well. The individual states had too much power and nothing could be agreed upon. A new doctrine needed to be written – something we know as the Constitution. And that leads us to the end of our story. George Washington was definitely not the first President of the United States. He was the first President of the United States under the Constitution we follow today. And the first seven Presidents are forgotten in history.

 

 

Then there is this from Mr. Dick Gregory’s Blog Global Watch:

 

A “Black” Man, A Moor, John Hanson

George Washington

And the first seven Presidents are forgotten in history. 

 

I posted this from two different sources because this is the only record of any of this history. Wikipedia even goes as far as to say this John Hanson was an American politician from Sweden….rather than give credit to this Moor, John Hanson.

 

Now I was taught all of my education life prior to attending Grambling University, that the Continent of Africa was a tiny spot of land on every map I had ever seen. Nothing compared to The Good Old U.S. Of A. in landmass, I got to college and was shown a real true map of the world and lo and behold…..The Continent Of Africa is three times the size of the Continent of North America.

 

Who are we going to believe,  when it comes to American history when Texas and a few other racist states, desire to erase any and all history with any reference to slavery?

 

I don’t trust the caucasian race to be honest about jack. Especially anything to do with accolades and proper recognition to Black America.

 

Read These Black History Moments to see exactly what I mean.

 

As for Mr. Morgan Freeman…..maybe he had better read up on Black American History and the articles of the U.S. Constitution, on who is eligible to be President. He just might realize natural born Africans are not permitted to hold the Office of President of The United States.

 

So That would mean Barack Hussein Obama, mixed race or not, is American’s first Black President.

 

As the old slavers would say…one drop of African blood makes you African/Black.

 

So Barack is our first Black POTUS…….or was that John Hanson?

 

 

Hanson-JohnJohn Hanson…..the Moor And Possibly The First Black President of The United States Of America??

Mr. Wayne LaPieere should be visited by all 27 families from Newtown, Connecticut & The Sandy Hook Elementary School that lost a friend, loved one or family member on December 14th, 2012. He should look them in the eye, face to face, and explain his policy on handguns, assault weapons and whom is at fault for our violent gun culture.

While great for a laugh, this excerpt from the Colbert Report illustrates how the political rumor mill stretches and contorts real world actions into messages that create fears in the general public that don’t actually exist.
