New Blog: Appeal to Heaven

Appeal to HeavenOver the years and months, What The Crap has gradually become more and more serious. This is perfectly acceptable, as blogs naturally evolve over time. Still – I have been meaning to create a space devoted to respectfully discussing deeper issues at greater length. Thus:

Appeal To Heaven

Appeal to Heaven will also certainly evolve over time. My initial goal is to clearly communicate conservative ideas and discuss the philosophy of liberty.

Please check it out and let me know what you think!!

PS – What The Crap will still be a place for posting random thoughts, videos, and other stuff I come across. Enjoy.

My Letter to President Obama

I am a middle class web designer and developer for a high-tech internet start-up. Right before I was hired – the small company I work for was purchased by a large investment firm. The large investment firm saw a value in the product we were creating and decided to invest money into our smaller company.

This has allowed our small company to create many more jobs including my own, as well as provide good benefits and better pay. The investment from the larger parent corporation has clearly given us the critical funding we needed for the technology and staff to get our project off the ground.

My question is, how will raising taxes on wealthy investors and corporations (such as our parent company) help create more jobs and promote small businesses like our own?

Being middle class, of course, I wouldn’t mind a tax break. However – I would rather pay taxes from my earnings at a good job – than receive a tax-cut and face potential lay-offs.

I’m interested in your thoughts?

Best Regards,

Obama’s Recovery.gov Misleads on the Stimulus Spending with Graphing FAIL

I came across this on Ace and had to repost it:

Here is the graphic from Recovery.gov:

StimulusSpendingGraphWow – that really looks like a lot of tax cutting. Oh – but wait a minute…isn’t this more acurate (corrected graphic ht – Gabriel Malor):

spendulusmoneychart1

Graph FAIL!

Malor nabs the best part. Notice the asterisk on ‘Tax Relief?” If you click Learn More on Recovery.gov you get this bullet point:

Tax Relief – includes $15 B for Infrastructure and Science, $61 B for Protecting the Vulnerable, $25 B for Education and Training and $22 B for Energy, so total funds are $126 B for Infrastructure and Science, $142 B for Protecting the Vulnerable, $78 B for Education and Training, and $65 B for Energy.

What?!? So the Tax Relief portion is actually more of the other things…? Ha!

Here’s the Stimulus our government is going to vote on:

Like AllahPundit said: They’re voting on it today and I’m totally confident everyone, including President Barack Obama has carefully read and scrutinized this wondrous flaming piece of horse-crap.
