Higher taxes will come to haunt us all
The following fact was intended to inform about the original Bumble Back Better Act (part I).
Luckily a couple key people realized what it was and didn’t vote for it (not New York senators, mind you).
It held true then and holds true today with the Schumer/Manchin Inflammatory/Idiocracy Recovery Act (part II).
To those that are ecstatic about higher taxes on the rich and raising the corporate taxes, throughout our history, there has been no tax on a specific group that has not in a short amount of time been placed on all of us.

Challenge Trump’s claim of ‘home’
Donald Trump referred to the FBI’s recent execution of a search warrant that yielded 11 boxes of classified information as “… this unannounced raid on my home.”
Trump’s claim that Mar-a-Lago is his “home” violates agreements that he made with the Palm Beach Town Council when he converted the property from a private residence to a club in 1993 as a tax-avoidance strategy (worth $5.7 million in 2020).
Under the agreement, Trump is only allowed to live at Mar-a-Lago for three non-consecutive seven day periods each year.
Clearly, that requirement has been violated numerous times.
So why has no one in the media — left wing/right wing/centrist — corrected him?
In addition, why has no one at the state or federal level challenged his claim that the club is his “home”?
Special treatment for Trump by FBI?
Let me be clear. Make no doubt about it. If anyone of us was found to have government classified documents at home, we would have been transported to jail as the documents were discovered. Questions asked later!
Put focus on what’s most important
We need to change our outlook. The single most important segment of society is families raising children.
Children are our future. They fill our classrooms and parents are the first to pass on values.
But the media would have you believe otherwise. Their focus is on the bickering between parties.
Ads are filled with sexual innuendo, appeal to alcohol and cannabis consumption.
Hollywood with an extra-large megaphone is allowed to voice their opinions alongside experts.
We are plunged into debates about sexual identity, what toilet and pronoun should be used. The border to our south is no longer a border. Needed bail reform is being tabled until after the election.
Crime is on the rise and some legislatures are calling to defund the police.
The federal government has spent us into a huge deficit. Are we losing our minds?
Are we being gaslighted by the media’s need to promote itself with eye grabbing attention?
With each media piece ask yourself: What does this have to do with and how does it help our central most important segment, families who raise children?
