US Tax Scam

Problem

Why is the average US household’s 2016 tax bite was $10,489, a whopping 41 percent more than just three years earlier? Americans shelled out just $7,203 for food and $1,803 for clothing on average, a total of just $9,006. Folks that translates to double digits less than taxes paid.

Are BLS figures pointing to American families increasingly being taxed, while rich people and corporations?

Far Away Folks Forgotten?

Issue

Has the world forgotten that we are all connected much closer than we realize? We hear all about #Houston, but not much about floods and landslides that have killed hundreds in #Africa #Macau and #South Asia.

Our hearts go out to all the people who are suffering everywhere on earth. Global warming is serious and we're all in this together, folks. It's one planet for all the people of the world.

The US Mexico Wall

Problem

After promising that Mexico would pay, and when the government refused his demands for a proposed border wall, POTUS is now threatening a government shutdown over funding.

Contact your government officials and let them know how you feel about spending US tax dollars. Reach out to The White House with your ideas and demands and remind all of them who is the boss.

House Republicans looking at cutting almost $1 billion from disaster accounts to help finance Trump border wall: http://apne.ws/mIcJW2P

Get Back To Work Now

Solution

Who ever heard of anyone buying into a plan in which the specifics have never been revealed? That is what politicians think Americans are going to do. However, according to statistics, many taxpayers are mad as hell and will not take it anymore.

Disaster relief is the priority for Congress as they return from a vacation some say they did not deserve to take. There appears to be an increasingly crowded congressional agenda which will force America's so called representatives to finally do some work, and that goes for the golf playing president as well, or else. They work for the people and not the other way around. House Republicans looking at cutting almost $1 billion from disaster accounts to help finance Trump border wall: http://apne.ws/mIcJW2P

Who's Leaking Now

Idea

A leak involves the release of something behind-some-on-e's-back as in leaking sensitive government information. There has been plenty of speculation about the leaks coming out of The White House. The Chief of Staff was accused, then it was thought The Special Advisor, but since they are both gone, along with The Press Secretary and others... Flynn, Dubke, Shaub, Corallo, Spicer, Priebus, Scaramucci, Bannon, Gorka and the hits just keep on going as the list of departed staffers from Trump's White House keeps growing longer.

What is President Trump doing Texas in the midst of the massive storm and record breaking floods? He says to survey the response to the devastation caused by Harvey, others wonder if this is his Harvey moment for a photo-op, a term coined during the administration of Republican President Richard Nixon.

GOP True Colors?

Issue

Late on Friday as news of Hurricane Harvey was intensifying another legal hurricane could also have been developing. Convicted former Arizona official Joe Arpaio was pardoned two months before the former Maricopa County sheriff was to be sentenced for federal criminal contempt.

Trump had reportedly sought to help his fellow “birther,” while Arpaio’s Arizona trial rolled on. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-asked-sessions-about-closi...

Horrendous Harvey

Idea

This massive storm is testing the spirits of folks deep in the heart of Texas. As deaths continue to increase as a result of Harvey, this once a century storm has dumped more rain in a widespread part of southeast Texas which has so far received double digits of rain, with some locations passing 25 inches.

And why is the destruction of the past being repeated as the flood threat from #Harvey is now spreading into Louisiana? Roads have become rivers in #Houston and surrounding areas. At least 30 inches of rain so far and thousands of rescue calls to officials.
