How The US Tax System Works

TaxBlocksCalculator_43_0Whenever Republicans propose tax cuts for everyone, liberals always charge it is tax cuts for the rich. This constant mantra from the liberal left is a worn out lie and proves that liberals have no clue as to how the US Tax system works. So let me try to educate these low info liberals. Liberals always listen and believe the rhetoric from their democrat leaders that tax cuts are just for the rich. The liberal mind does not allow them to analyse and independently research and break down this false mantra.

The Federal Income Tax System, is called a marginal tax system. Meaning, the more money you earn, the more you will pay in Federal Income Tax. Which means the opposite is also true for those earning less money. The less you make the less you pay in Federal Income Tax. There are tax brackets which determine what rate or percentage of your income you will pay based on how much you earn. The table below is the tax brackets for 2014.

2014 Tax Brackets

So a person who earns $25,000 in a year will pay 15% in Federal Income Tax which is $3,750. A person who earns $500,000 in a year will pay 39.6% in Federal Income Tax, which is $198,000. Keep in mind that a person who makes $9,075 (or $18,150 for married couples) or less pays zero dollars in Federal Income Tax.

I hope you dumb liberals are still with me. Pay attention now, I’m trying to educate your very feeble minds.

So when Republicans propose across the board tax cuts, which means a lower percentage of tax in each tax bracket and/or perhaps the elimination of a tax bracket or two, EVERYONE will pay less money in real dollars, in Federal Income Tax, yes even the rich. And yes, the rich will get more in actual dollars by a tax cut because they pay a lot more in Federal Income Tax. In the above example, the guy making $500,000 a year paid $198,000 in Federal Income Tax. While the guy who makes $25,000 a year paid $3,750 in Federal Income Tax. So the guy making a half million paid $194,250 more in Federal Income Tax than the guy who made $25,000. Meaning, an across the board tax cut will benefit both parties in the example. Yes the rich guy will save more by a tax cut, because he paid $194,250 more than the other guy. A married couple who makes $18,150 or less will pay zero in Federal Income Tax no matter what happens to the tax code because they paid zero dollars in Federal Income Tax to begin with. So when liberals advance the narrative that it is just tax cuts for the rich, it is one big lie.

Now if you are too dumb to comprehend the simple example above, perhaps this example will help you put it all together.

North Korea and The Irresponsible Liberal Media

Kim Jong Un

The obese inbred communist dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, continues to threaten our country, along with our allies, South Korea and Japan, both with his words and actions. Kim Jong Un, continues his ICBM tests and is now threatening to shoot those missiles at US territory, The Island of Guam. It has been reported that Kim’s ICBMs are capable of hitting Hawaii, Alaska, the west coast of the United States and possibly further inland. In addition to that it has been reported that the DPRK has as many as 60 nuclear weapons and they are now able to miniaturize them and put them on their ICBMs. Kim continues his dangerous and threatening rhetoric against the USA.

After President Trump said, that Kim Jong Un will be met with fire and fury if his threats continue and he launches missiles at the USA or Guam, Democrats like US Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) came out and said the president is bombastic and the only way forward is to negotiate with North Korea. The senator from California doesn’t see anything bombastic about Kim Jong Un’s rhetoric. Negotiations have been taking place since 1985 and it has not worked. I found the Arms Control Association website, which chronicles negotiations between the North Korean regime and the USA since 1985. You can check it out here it is very enlightening. Even Senator McCain came out and criticized President Trump for his fire and fury comment. John McCain has never has never met any US Military action he didn’t love until now. It’s time for John McCain to retire from the US Senate and take care of his health.

Now the totally irresponsible liberal media are criticizing and blaming President Trump for all this while they say nothing about Kim Jong fat boy’s threats and missile tests. Brian Williams now on MSNBC who was given time off and fired from his anchor spot on NBC News for being a liar has the guts to criticize the President about this and cite polls. Brian Williams is an ass who has ZERO credibility. Then there was Andrea Mitchell (who is another Democrat disguised as a journalist) who found President Trump’s fire and fury comments just shocking. Andrea Mitchell does not find Kim Jong Un’s threats, missile tests, reports they can put a miniaturized nuclear warhead on an ICBM, that Kim Jong Un now has upwards of 60 nuclear weapons. No Andrea Mitchell only finds what President Trump said shocking. She gives a total pass to the communist dictator and finds nothing he has done or said shocking. Andrea Mitchell is a total liberal hack. You can bet your ass, if Hillary or Obama were president right now and they dished out similar rhetoric against the DPRK, Andrea would be praising them as the smartest people on Earth. This is rich, here is Andrea Mitchell stating how shocked she is at Trump’s words and she was up all night trying to figure it all out. More BS. Click here.

Andrea Mitchell has zero criticism for Bill Clinton. Clinton threatened North Korea in 1994.  And what ever happened to the 1994 deal Bill Clinton made with North Korea?

Liberals like Andrea Mitchell, the liar Brian Williams, just about everyone at CNN and MSNBC, are putting their opposition to President Trump ahead of our National Security concerning North Korea is outrageous. These liberals disguised as journalists are a total disgrace.

Partisan Hack Adam Schiff (D-CA)

Adam SchiffRepresentative Adam Schiff (D-CA) is a total hack and is not interested one bit in finding out the truth. Schiff is on the House Intelligence Committee. This committee is investigating (along with others) the Trump-Russia collusion thing. Back in March 2017, Evelyn Farkas told Mika on CNN that the Obama Administration had information on the Trump-Russia collusion thing and urged her former colleagues in the intelligence community to leak everything that had before Obama left office. Youtube link here.

Adam Schiff is the ranking Democrat member of the House Intelligence Committee. Why hasn’t Schiff called Evelyn Farkas to testify?

Susan Rice, former National Security Adviser in Obama Administration, denies she requested the unmasking of names incidentally collected though surveillance. Then a few weeks later, Rice refuses to deny she did the unmasking. These names were leaked to the press. Which is a felony. Why hasn’t Adam Schiff called Susan Rice to testify in front to intel committee?

Obama knew about Russia’s attempts to meddle in the 2016 election, months before the election and did absolutely nothing about it. Pencilneck Adam Schiff appeared on the State of the Union show and was asked about this. Watch Schiff dodge the questions and won’t say anything bad about Obama or the administration. If Schiff was really interested in getting to the truth about Russia, he would have said I will have Obama administration officials called before the intel committee to testify to get to the bottom of this. Schiff didn’t even come close to saying that. Proving once again Schiff is nothing but a liberal hack not interested in getting to the truth.

Schiff also asserted that Lorretta Lynch shouldn’t be called before intel committee because of Comey’s testimony where he said Lynch told him to call the Clinton investigation a “matter.” Click here for Schiff interview.

Now of course, Pencilneck is all over the Trump Jr. story. Donald Trump jr. had a meeting with a Russian lawyer where as it turns out, the Russian lawyer had nothing for Don Jr. and she had no ties whatsoever to the Kremlin. During this metting, according to news reports, she wanted to talk about the ban on Americans adopting Russian children. Schiff goes on and on about how bad this is. Schiff goes on and on about conspiracy theories. Here is Pencilneck’s press conference.

A left leaning lawyer, Jonathan Turley, asserts that what Donald Trump Jr. did is not in any way a crime. Video here.

Cater Page a former Trump campaign adviser, who has been accused of participating in the Trump-Russia collusion thing because his investment firm looks for opportunities worldwide. It is alleged that Cater Page was the subject of a FISA warrant because of this. Cater Page has been begging the House intel committee to testify. So far Page has been denied the opportunity to testify to clear his name. Again, if Adam Schiff was interested in the truth, he would call Page to testify.  Here is the story from The Washington Examiner.

Adam Schiff just like to hear himself talk. He loves the attention. Pencilneck is a just liberal hack not interested in the truth.

Update 7/16/2017

Adam Schiff was on a show called This Week. Even though Hillary’s campaign staffers met with Ukraine government officials to get dirt on President Trump. Good old Pencil Neck diminished what Hillary did by comparing bank robbery (Trump) to bouncing a check (Hillary). Schiff, proving once again he is just a liberal hack. Town Hall article here.

Asian Philly Councilwoman Accuses Asian Food Truck Owners of Racism


helen-gym                                                                                                           Philadelphia first term city councilwoman, Helen Gym, has accused the owners of a center city food truck of racism because of their name and the design on the outside of their food truck.

According to the owners of the Wheely Wheely Good Food Truck, Alanna Li and Bailin Chen, who are Asian, Councilwoman Gym approached their truck and told the owners the name of your truck is “super-racist.” Gym also was offended by the cartoon characters on the outside of the truck because it depicts two Asians.

Asian Philly Councilwoman Accuses Asian Food Truck Owners of Racism

helen-gym                                                                                                           Philadelphia first term city councilwoman, Helen Gym, has accused the owners of a center city food truck of racism because of their name and the design on the outside of their food truck.

According to the owners of the Wheely Wheely Good Food Truck, Alanna Li and Bailin Chen, who are Asian, Councilwoman Gym approached their truck and told the owners the name of your truck is “super-racist.” Gym also was offended by the cartoon characters on the outside of the truck because it depicts two Asians. Alanna Li, explained to councilwoman Gym, that the name of their food truck, Wheely Wheely Good means it’s really good food on wheels. And in no way is the name meant to make fun of Asians. Apparently, Gym thinks the name is making fun of the way Asians speak certain English words. She also explained to Gym that the cartoons on the outside of the truck are depictions of the Li and Chen.

racist-food-truck-wheely-wheely-good-helen-gymEven after the Asian owners explained all of this to liberal councilwoman Helen Gym, she demanded the owners change the name of the food truck and the design on the outside of the truck. And if they don’t comply with her demands, Gym threatened to have the Wheely Wheely Good Food Truck banned from Night Market on Thursday nights at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and threatened the owners with inspections from the city’s Licenses and Inspection Department in an effort to have them shut down if any violations are discovered.

Helen Gym even sent her daughter to the Wheely Wheely Good Food Truck to hold up a sign that said “Racism Sucks and So Does This” with an arrow pointing at the truck. And posted this photo on twitter.

racist-food-truck-wheely-wheely-good-helen-gym-2The owners of the food truck didn’t know about the sign until they were leaving for the day and found the sign stuck to the back of their truck.

Councilwoman Gym was given an opportunity to comment about an article about this from Philadelphia Magazine and refused to comment. Seems like Councilwoman Gym is hiding under her desk.

Councilwoman Gym may have committed crime by threatening the owners of the Wheely Wheely Good Food Truck, Alanna Li and Bailin Chen. The crime is called Official Oppression.

As a lifelong resident of Philadelphia I am totally outraged at Councilwoman Gym’s conduct. The Asian owners explained there is no implied or intended racism, yet Gym is offended and makes demands. JUST WHO THE HELL DOES HELEN GYM THINK SHE IS? She has no right to threaten a business, who are paying taxes to the city and complying with the laws of city. Helen Gym needs to RESIGN. She doesn’t deserve to represent anyone.

Helen Gym isn’t even from Philadelphia. She is from Seattle, moved to Ohio and then to Philadelphia. Helen Gym is also owned by the teachers union. According to a Pennsylvania Watchdog Organization, Helen Gym accepted double the amount of money allowed by law from the teacher’s union. According to the article Gym has railed against money in politics in the past, yet accepted a double illegal contribution from the PFT. Which makes Helen Gym a typical liberal hypocrite. And once again, Helen Gym was given the opportunity to comment on the article from the Pennsylvania Watchdog Group and declined. Seems like Helen Gym is hiding under her desk again.

Leftist Philly Mayor Kenney Wrong on Irish Immigrant Comparison

Mayor Kenney’s speech today on Saint Patrick’s Day, compared the Irish immigration to American of the 1840s to illegal immigration of today. Once again, extreme liberal Mayor Jim Kenney couldn’t be more wrong.

Mayor Kenney said the Irish immigrants of the 1840s came to American without papers and were undocumented. Yes a lot did come without documentation, however, when they arrived in America they were delivered to ports in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and others. These Irish immigrants were processed by US Immigration Officials and given papers so they could stay in America and one day become citizens of The United States of America.

These Irish immigrants didn’t jump off the ships and run into these cities to hide from officials and work under the table. These Irish immigrants came to America legally.

The a vast majority of immigrants today sneak into the USA by crossing the southern boarder with Mexico. These immigrants, mostly Mexican, have entered the USA illegally. They have not been processed by US officials, nor do they seek to be processed by US officials.

This is the difference Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney doesn’t mention in his speech today and this is why Kenney is wrong once again.

It’s typical of statists like Kenney to leave out the word “illegal” when speaking about immigrants who have broken our immigration laws and entered the USA illegally.

Kenney also mentioned the rhetoric in the presidential race concerning illegal immigrants is a disgrace. Mayor Kenney is wrong yet again. No one objects to people coming to the USA legally to seek a better life for themselves and their family.

No Mr. Mayor, you are the disgrace. Mayor Kenney does not believe US immigration laws should be enforced in the City of Philadelphia and has made Philadelphia a sanctuary city by directing city law enforcement not to comply with ICE immigration holds on arrested suspects who are in the country illegally.

Here is a link to the Mayor’s speech today.

Blocked by State Senator Leach on Twitter

The other day on twitter I commented on a post by the PA Senate Dems where State Senator Daylin Leach was tagged in the post. The post was about giving workers a fair shake. So I asked who decides what is fair? Senator Leach responded that elected representatives decide what’s fair. After a couple of tweets I asked Senator Leach how he knows what is “fair” for everyone? Then he switched gears and said the labor department decides what is fair because they keep track of the poverty level. He added, no one who works should be in poverty.

Then I said with all due respect Senator, this is the result of failed Democrat policies in Philadelphia, with the following pic:


The senator then said that’s just nut. Why not show a nice street and credit the Democrats for it? And blame Republican governors for this pic.

I responded by saying Democrats OWN the destruction of Philadelphia. Republican governors have run the state not the city.

So in the senator’s liberal mind, 60 years of Democrat rule and the destruction that has caused in Philadelphia has nothing to do with their failed economic policies and he blames Republican governors for this? This is typical liberal logic in display.

Senator Leach responded by saying that the citizens of Philadelphia lack a safety net and a tax code that favors the rich.

And of course because Senator Leach is a typical liberal who doesn’t want to debate someone with an opposing point of view with facts on his (me) side, he blocked me. It’s a typical closed minded liberal move.

There couldn’t be more BS to the Senator’s statement that Philadelphia lacks a safety net. According to stats from April 2014, 475,890 people in Philadelphia receive food stamps. Philadelphia has a population of 1.5 million people. Which means almost one third of the total Philadelphia population is on food stamps. And 262,500 people in Philadelphia are on Medicaid. And Senator Leach believes Philadelphia lacks a safety net.

Back to Senator Leach’s other ridiculous statement that the Philadelphia Tax Code favors the rich. I used to own a business in Philadelphia. A business in Philadelphia must pay a net profits tax and a gross receipts tax. Meaning, even if your start up business losses money during the first couple years, that business still has to pay the gross receipts tax for an additional loss. Also Philadelphia employers are required to deduct from an employees pay a 3.928% wage tax. The surrounding counties have only a 1% wage tax. And the owner of a star up business is required to pay $200 for business privilege license. Again, according to Senator Leach with his liberal logic fully on display, this tax code favors the a rich person who starts a business in Philadelphia.

Senator Leach has sponsored the following legislative bills: Expand welfare, food stamps and medicaid, raise the sales by 10%, unionize college athletes, tax on gas drillers, infringe on the rights of gun owners by forcing them to register their firearms with the state, raise minimum wage, force employers to pay sick leave, provide for a racial impact study before any change can be made to a sentencing bill,  and force you to pay a plastic bag fee for each bag used for any purchase. Yes the list goes on and on for the entire liberal agenda.

Who votes for these looney liberals anyway? It’s the same people who moved from Philadelphia to get away from high taxes and substandard public education. The problem is the people who are electing the same people that brought economic destruction to Philadelphia with their failed liberal policies and high taxes. The same fate awaits you in the Philadelphia suburbs if you keep putting these people in office and your neighborhoods will look like this:
