More Breaking News: Supreme Court Justice Souter Retiring

WASHINGTON DC – News media reports say Supreme Court Justice David Hackett Souter plans to retire from the Court at the end of the court's term in June.
Speculation that the 69-year-old justice will be stepping down has been fueled by his failure to appoint law clerks from the fall term.
National Public Radio is reporting that Souter has informed the White House of his intentions and will remain on the bench until a successor is confirmed.

About Souter:
Appointed to the Court by Republican President George H. W. Bush in 1990, he usually votes with the more liberal wing on the Roberts court.

My Comment:
Bet Obama, Pelosi, and Reid can find someone a lot more Liberal Looney Toon Left to appoint!

Breaking News: Taxpayers to get rude surprise

INSIDE WASHINGTON: Millions of couples, retirees may have to repay some of Obama tax credit

Full Story Here:
WASHINGTON DC - Millions of Americans enjoying their small windfall from President Barack Obama's "Making Work Pay" tax credit are in for an unpleasant surprise next spring.
The government is going to want some of that money back.
The tax credit is supposed to provide up to $400 to individuals and $800 to married couples as part of the massive economic recovery package enacted in February. Most workers started receiving the credit through small increases in their paychecks in the past month.
But new tax withholding tables issued by the IRS could cause millions of taxpayers to get hundreds of dollars more than they are entitled to under the credit, money that will have to be repaid at tax time.
At-risk taxpayers include a broad swath of the public: married couples in which both spouses work; workers with more than one job; retirees who have federal income taxes withheld from their pension payments and Social Security recipients with jobs that provide taxable income.
The Internal Revenue Service acknowledges problems with the withholding tables but has done little to warn average taxpayers.
"They need to get the Goodyear blimp out there on this," said Tom Ochsenschlager, vice president of taxation for the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
For many, the new tax tables will simply mean smaller-than-expected tax refunds next year, IRS spokesman Terry Lemons said. The average refund was nearly $2,700 this year.
But taxpayers who calculate their withholding so they get only small refunds could face an unwelcome tax bill next April, said Jackie Perlman, an analyst with the Tax Institute at H&R Block.
"They are going to get a surprise," she said.
Perlman's advice: check your federal withholding to make sure sufficient taxes are being taken out of your pay. If you are married and both spouses work, you might consider having taxes withheld at the higher rate for single filers. If you have multiple jobs, you might consider having extra taxes withheld by one of your employers. You can make that request with a Form W-4.
The IRS has a calculator on its Web site to help taxpayers figure withholding. So do many private tax preparers.
Obama has touted the tax credit as one of the big achievements of his first 100 days in office, boasting that 95 percent of working families will qualify in 2009 and 2010.
The credit pays workers 6.2 percent of their earned income, up to a maximum of $400 for individuals and $800 for married couples who file jointly. Individuals making more $95,000 and couples making more than $190,000 are ineligible.
The tax credit was designed to help boost the economy by getting more money to consumers in their regular paychecks. Employers were required to start using the new withholding tables by April 1.
The tables, however, don't take into account several common categories of taxpayers, experts said.
For example:
--A single worker with two jobs making $20,000 a year at each job will get a $400 boost in take-home pay at each of them, for a total of $800. That worker, however, is eligible for a maximum credit of $400, so the remaining $400 will have to be paid back at tax time either through a smaller refund or a payment to the IRS.
The IRS recognized there could be a similar problem for married couples if both spouses work, so it adjusted the withholding tables. The fix, however, was imperfect.
-- A married couple with a combined income of $50,000 is eligible for an $800 credit. However, if both spouses work and make more than $13,000, the new withholding tables give them each a $600 boost for a total of $1,200.
There were 33 million married couples in 2008 in which both spouses worked. That's 55 percent of all married couples, according to the Census Bureau.
-- A single college student with a part-time job making $10,000 would get a $400 boost in pay. However, if that student is claimed as a dependent on a parent's tax return, she doesn't qualify for the credit and would have to repay it when she files next year.
Some retirees face even bigger headaches.
The Social Security Administration is sending out $250 payments to more than 50 million retirees in May as part of the economic stimulus package. The payments will go to people who receive Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, railroad retirement benefits or veteran's disability benefits.
The payments are meant to provide a boost for people who don't qualify for the tax credit. However, they will go to retirees even if they have earned income and receive the credit. Those retirees will have the $250 payment deducted from their tax credit but not until they file their tax returns next year, long after the money may have been spent.
Retirees who have federal income taxes withheld from pension benefits also are getting an income boost as a result of the new withholding tables. However, pension benefits are not earned income, so they don't qualify for the tax credit. That money will have to paid back next year when tax returns are filed.
More than 20 million retirees and survivors receive payments from defined benefit pension plans, according to the Employee Benefit Research Institute. However, it is unclear how many have federal taxes withheld from their payments.
The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union raised concerns about the effect of the tax credit on pension payments in a letter to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner in March.
Geithner responded that Treasury and IRS understood the concerns and were "exploring ways to mitigate that effect."
Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, the top Republican on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, said Geithner has yet to respond to concerns raised by committee members.
"So far we've got the, 'If we don't address this maybe it will go away' approach," Camp said.

So Obama supporters, how do you like the Liberals so far?
You see this is about those who can think versus those who voted for Obama who can't think at all!

Breaking News: Obama's 100th day starts with Arlen Spector

Full Story:
WASHINGTON DC – President Barack Obama kicks off his 100th day in office with a new Democratic ally at his side.
Former Repulican U.S. Senator Arlen Specter will discuss his new Democratic allegiance during an address with Obama and Vice President Joe Biden Wednesday morning.
Specter ditched his Republican party designation of nearly 30 years Tuesday, saying he has found himself "increasingly at odds with the Republican philosophy," and declared himself a Democrat. The White House says Obama would campaign for Specter, who's up for re-election next year.

My Comments:
This is just proof career politicians are as worthless as scum. They will sell out anyone to stay in office. Specter even admitted at a news conference he would lose the upcoming Republican primary to a younger person seeking his senate seat.
The solution is and always has been to limit all politicians to ONE TERM in Office.
We can expect a full social agenda from Obama now that he has total control of te U.S. Senate.

Braeking News: Five U.S. Congressman Arrested, all Democrats

One of the 5 arrested, pictured below, is U.S. Representative (Congressman) John Lewis, D-Ga

Full Story Here:
WASHINGTON DC – Five members of Congress have been arrested while protesting the expulsion of aid groups from Darfur in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.
They were among eight people led away in handcuffs Monday after crossing a police line.
They urged world leaders to take a stand against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir's decision to expel 16 aid agencies from Darfur, where the United Nations says up to 300,000 people have died in fighting that began more than six years ago.
The arrested U.S. Lawmakers are Democratic Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, John Lewis of Georgia, Donna Edwards of Maryland and Lynn Woolsey of California.

My Comments:
1. Proof the news media is totally biased. If these were Republicans the story would run for weeks and the Dems would demand they be impeached from Congress.
2. Exactly what the hell do these and other idiots want from the United States? We are NOT the world Police Force. We have enough damn problems right here in America. Are we to enter another war and let American men and women die, when even neighboring countries don't care about Darfur? Or, maybe these stupid Liberals would like us to admit the Darfur poor and oppressed as immigrants to the USA so we can have more uneducated, unskilled people with no jobs, no health insurance, and no English.

Breaking News, CNN Video: Public health emergency

Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano declares a public health emergency in the the U.S.

My Comments:
Listen to the idiot discuss how she is stopping people at airports and border crossing coming into the USA 'Legally.'
What about all the Illegals crossing border. This moron did nothing about that while Governor of Arizona and is still doing nothing.
The Flu is originating in Mexico.
Here is Liberal idiocy taking to the highest level I've ever seen.
What a joke the U.S. Government has become.
Close the damn Borders to everyone, at least until this pandemic outbreak is over!

This is funny, please read....

This was just emailed to me, so I decided to post it.

Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.
The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.
A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.
Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 - 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.
In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.
When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

Remember Bush on Social Security

I have been accused of NOT being independent and neutral and constantly picking on President Obama and the Democrats. That's because they're in office, besides Obama and his Liberal appointees make it so easy.
But to be fair and independent here is a George W. Bush faux pas....

My Comments:
Let me see who attacked us on 911, in Beirut, in Somalia, in Nigeria, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Indonesia, in Turkey...the list goes on and it wasn't Japan, Russia, Germany, France, China, or India.. It was Islam (Muslims) that carried out these attacks - so President Obama you continue to make a fool of yourself and with your attitude you are welcoming another attack on America and American interest. You are a MUSLIM and always will be a Muslim and a lover of Islam.
You need to be Impeached in the interest of America and keeping Americans safe, that's the oath you took and obviously have no intention on keeping.
