Overnight Open Thread (4-7-2013)

Meet the Merman

Apparently there is a 'merman lifestyle'. And along with the shame there's also money in it.

Next on the Obama Hit List: 401Ks

About $250K a year is where you turn into a class criminal and pretty much anything can be done to you. Because you're a criminal.

President Obama's budget, to be released next week, will limit how much wealthy individuals - like Mitt Romney - can keep in IRAs and other retirement accounts.The senior administration official said that wealthy taxpayers can currently "accumulate many millions of dollars in these accounts, substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving."

Under the plan, a taxpayer's tax-preferred retirement account, like an IRA, could not finance more than $205,000 per year of retirement - or right around $3 million this year.

The Stupid Party at Work

The GOP has been steadily taking over state legislatures in the US but when they get in charge they also do dumb shit like this.

Apparently opening county commission meetings or school football games with prayer is so important that the First Amendment needs to be trimmed back in North Carolina. Hence the NC GOP has proposed this bill:

SECTION 2. The North Carolina General Assembly does not recognize federal court rulings which prohibit and otherwise regulate the State of North Carolina, its public schools or any political subdivisions of the State from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.

And then you have the Virginia AG fighting to keep a law on the book that bans oral and anal sex between adults. Granted he's trying to hit a 47 year old man who has sex with a girl over 15 with a felony but it would also have the effect of banning all BJs in Virginia.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit ruled on March 12 that Virginia's "Crimes Against Nature" statute, which banned oral and anal sex, violates the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. One judge dissented, agreeing with a lower court that the Supreme Court's ruling in Lawrence v. Texas on sodomy laws applied only to consenting adults. The case in question involved a teenage girl and a 47-year-old man, William Scott MacDonald, who was convicted of soliciting a minor to commit a felony.

Trayvon's Family To Get $1 Million

Not from Zimmerman but from the HOA of the subdivision where the shooting happened. The amount is confidential but believed to be at least a million dollars.

The parents of a teenager who was fatally shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer last year have settled a wrongful-death claim against the homeowners association of the Florida subdivision where their son was killed.

...Under the terms of the settlement, Trayvon Martin's parents and his estate agreed to set aside their wrongful-death claim and claims for pain and suffering, loss of earnings and expenses, the Sentinel reported.

According to a cover page attached to the settlement that was placed in Zimmerman's criminal case file, copies of the settlement were given Thursday to Zimmerman's attorney, as well as to the prosecutor and the judge, the newspaper reported.

Crump has previously said he intends to file suit later against Zimmerman, and the settlement specified that Zimmerman was not part of the homeowner association's deal.

You would have thought the HOA would have delayed until the trial but maybe they were afraid of an even bigger award if Zimmerman is convicted.

Police State: The Early Days

The DHS has set up checkpoints far from the border and randomly stops and questions people. Yet as these video show they don't have any justification for doing this and if you simply refuse to cooperate, they have no recourse.

More Black Men Are in Jail Than in College?

Not true. And almost certainly never was true.

More than 10 years ago, the Justice Policy Institute released the report "Cellblocks or Classrooms." While the report should have been a wake-up call to policymakers, one line resonated and echoed more than any other: "Nearly a third more African-American men are incarcerated than in higher education."

Yet here is a graph of black male incarceration vs college enrollment:

collegevjail_022712_575se

Meanwhile there's now one less black man in prison - Wesley Snipes is finally out after serving almost 3 years for tax evasion. It turns out his various justifications for not paying taxes just weren't persuasive to the court.

A July decision by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upholding Snipes' conviction and sentence recounts how after becoming involved with the American Rights Litigators organization, Snipes failed to file individual federal returns from 1999 to 2004, despite grossing more than $37 million during those years. According to the decision, instead of 1040s, Snipes sent the IRS correspondence advancing various theories as to "why the IRS was powerless to collect income taxes from him" including "that he was a `non-resident alien to the United States,' that earned income must come from `sources wholly outside the United States,' that a `taxpayer is defined  by law as one who operates a distilled spirit Plant,' and that the Internal Revenue Code's taxing authority `is limited to the District of Columbia and insular possessions of the United States, exclusive of the 50 States of the Union.'''

15 I see the White House blamed demographics for the lowest worker participation rate since 1979, most especially those older Americans.

Until the bond market regains any credibility (i.e. interest rates go above 0%), most of those older Americans won’t retire because their 401(k)’s just aren’t performing.

It’s interesting that these older workers are to blamed for the young not getting jobs by supposedly not leaving the workforce, and, on the flip-side, they are blamed for low worker participation rates by supposedly leaving the workforce. It can only be one way or the other.

Remember back in the late 70′s when they told us that if we saved $2000 a year and interest rates remained at 17.4% that by the time we went to retire, we would have a million dollars. Seems so silly now.

The second the lawsuit was filed, the insurance company took over. The insurance company figured out how much paperwork was going to be generated in this suit, saw that it would cost them a million to litigate, so they cut their losses and settled. Even if the HOA wanted to fight it, the insurance company gets the final word since it is their dime.

132 It is very reasonable for the Federal Government to limit the amount of income that can be sheltered from current income taxes in a 401K or IRA. We want people to save enough money to be comfortable and self-supporting in their retirement and the 401/IRA system helps ensure that they are. But their is not reason why the government should allow relatively unlimited savings in retirement (and current law allows high earning individuals several ways to save more both absolutely and as a percentage of their income than lower earning individuals.)

Where Obama goes wrong is by tying the limit to the amount of income one earns. If he wants to create a lifetime limit as to the amount of earned income that can be sheltered--3 million or whatever-that is fine. But it should not matter to tie the limits to what you earn in a particular year. Just set a lifetime limit for everyone no matter what their income in a particular year.

Posted by: EC at April 07, 2013 10:34 PM (doBIb)

139 15 I see the White House blamed demographics for the lowest worker participation rate since 1979, most especially those older Americans.

Until the bond market regains any credibility (i.e. interest rates go above 0%), most of those older Americans won’t retire because their 401(k)’s just aren’t performing.

It’s interesting that these older workers are to blamed for the young not getting jobs by supposedly not leaving the workforce, and, on the flip-side, they are blamed for low worker participation rates by supposedly leaving the workforce. It can only be one way or the other.

Remember back in the late 70′s when they told us that if we saved $2000 a year and interest rates remained at 17.4% that by the time we went to retire, we would have a million dollars. Seems so silly now.

Funny thing is that the older people are the ones that will actually do the jobs with a smile on their face. At the local Kroger, the older ones smile and greet you, help you find things, and do the actual work. The others are all union, and don't give a shit if you need help or not.

Sorry
(I'm Canadian, I apologize a lot because it's in my nature), but seeing
your comment reminded me of the Canadian band The Tragically Hip. Great
band, but they had the misfortune of having a song pulled off the air
several years ago, although the song had been around for a while. It was
called, "New Orleans is Sinking (and I don't want to swim)"

184 There are income limits for all sorts of tax deductions. Student loan interest has an income limit. The child deduction has a limit. And the limits are much lower than $205K. For the child deduction the limit kicks in at $110,000 for a married couple. So if a couple making $110K can't get a child credit, why exactly should someone have an unlimited amount of tax free eanring in retirement?

It is very reasonable for the Federal Government to limit the amount of
income that can be sheltered from current income taxes in a 401K or IRA.
We want people to save enough money to be comfortable and
self-supporting in their retirement and the 401/IRA system helps ensure
that they are. But their is not reason why the government should allow
relatively unlimited savings in retirement (and current law allows high
earning individuals several ways to save more both absolutely and as a
percentage of their income than lower earning individuals.)



Where Obama goes wrong is by tying the limit to the amount of income
one earns. If he wants to create a lifetime limit as to the amount of
earned income that can be sheltered--3 million or whatever-that is
fine. But it should not matter to tie the limits to what you earn in a
particular year. Just set a lifetime limit for everyone no matter what
their income in a particular year.

General law here: If you are bringing one or more hunting rifles into Canada and can prove you're bringing them to hunt, great. Happy paperwork! Otherwise, if you're bringing a firearm of any kind just because you want to bring it there you'll be in a world of hurt. Pretty much all handguns are banned. Concealed carry does not exist but for the very few. At the very least, you'll be fined and not allowed into the country again. Once again, that's the general description.

We have procrastinated replacing them because it was near freezing and not much rat activity, but two days ago it suddenly became warm and it's now rodent fiesta time.

We've already got new trash cans waiting to go out.

Except, of course, the "growth" is merely a larger number of nominal dollars. Your house didn't "grow" from 1750 square feet to 2800, your lot didn't "grow" from 8000 square feet to an acre....but your value "grew" by hundreds of thousands of dollars while gasoline was going from 50 cents to four-and-a-half bucks and postage went from 3 cents to 48. And the number of nominal dollars is controlled by the Federal government.

I worked in a small grocery store when I turned 16. My 3rd day there, a little old lady asked me where something was, so I told her. Later the manager informed me that when asked where something is, you ask them how many they want, and you go get it for them, with a smile. 30+ years later, that lesson is still imprinted on me. Too bad these kids today will never understand what quality customer service really is.

249 Wait a minute.

there are relatively low limits to what can be contributed on a tax-free basis to a 401k. It's something like 15k per year. Everything else is after-tax.

This, again, is not about them hiding money from taxation, it is about forcing them to spend the money.

Progressives are hell-on-wheels haters of people

whose income isn't steady. If you have a guy who builds houses for a

living, works on 'em for three years and sells in year 3 at a $300,000

profit, he'll pay metric buttloads more taxes than some postal service

worker who makes $100,000 every year for poor customer service.

he won't pay shit in year 3 since the first $250K for a single tax

Well, that just proves you're spouting off. That's for your own home, if you're not in the business of building houses for profit. If he lives in one house and builds others, he is in the trade or business of building -- and not only is it not free, it ain't even capital gains.

Five years ago my sons and I drove to Alaska. I took a shotgun since we were planning on being in the woods. The fucking frogs held me up for TWO hours filling out forms to transport my fucking gun across their country.

I had the forms that were good for 30 days. When we drove back into Canada, Alaska the guy asked me if I had any fire arms, I said fuck no.

309 The fact is, the old methods of putting money in an IRA don't work anymore. With these current low interest rates, your account will only grow beyond what you put into it if you have the option to make high-risk investments with that money.

401Ks do okay right now because you can invest those in the stock market, which is being artificially pumped up right now by "quantitative easing", a fancy term for the Federal Reserve ordering the printing of money that then magically belongs to the Federal Reserve, and can be freely invested in the stock market to keep it artificially pumped up.

Yes, I would. Because the alternative to purchasing a car is to purchase a bike, or a bus pass or a pair of running shoes, or an apartment closer to work, or a zillion other things. The carmaker doesn't need that leg up over the bikemaker, does he? Meanwhile, the alternative to saving is...not saving! Not-saving leads to actual subsidies being needed.

320 Love the Daily Mail. I don't see our MFM flogging this story like they would if GWB was still president and doing this!




"While Friday's job report revealed that the U.S. economy only added 88,000 jobs in March, President Obama has played golf for the second weekend in a row.
Mr Obama took to the greens at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, on Saturday afternoon with White House aides Marvin Nicholson, Joe Paulsen, and Michael Brush, according to ABC News.
The president made his first golfing trip since the sequester cuts a week earlier, and famously teed off with Tiger Woods on a secretive getaway to Florida in February."

Then why do you get so worked up that 47% don't pay any income tax? According to you, YOUR tax bill doesn't get affected by someone else. According to you if that 47 went to 57 or 67 or 97%, it wouldn't matter. The remaining tax payers wouldn't be affected.

Posted by: Mr. Moo Moo at April 07, 2013 11:09 PM

I think the car subsidies are obscene transfers from the have-nots to the haves. In the case of 401k/IRA, the money is taxed when it is spent. There is no equivalent taxation of the car...

351 #332: Because the 47% don't pay income taxes at all, and in turn demand that the wealthy "pay their fair share" so they can continue freeloading, my employer has to pay more in taxes. If my employer has less money to spend due to a tax increase, I am less likely to get a raise.

Therefore, the 47% do affect my income.

356 You know the theory on IRA/401K was you got to accumulate assets and there were no transitional taxes on your gains and then when you retired you would pay lower taxes on the money you withdrew from the account.

Except for the lack of transitional taxes, that has not worked out too well. Inflation will make most retires pay the same tax on the withdrawals that they would have if they had put the money into a Roth or a tax pay saving, AKA Life Insurance.

Young people never remember, you pay income TAX on your SS benefits that your paid for for 50 years.

I have decided to borrow money and let my IRA repay the debt, without paying any fucking tax on the IRA when I die! Yes, look it up, IRA assets can be used to pay estate debts and the IRS gets NADA.

Fuck you IRS!

"Assume all car makers got that $7500."

Then what's the point of the subsidy? Cancel it and save everyone (taxpayers) the paperwork costs.

You don't object to this, do you? Keeping people off the taxpayer's nickel. You shouldn't.


"It's a tax subsidy no different than a subsidy to someone with a 401k or IRA"

Actually it is. The difference is between deferring taxes on money ALREADY earned, potentially keeping the saver off of welfare and foodstamps later in life, and making a luxury more affordable for those who desire it.

425 Can't use snakes because the cockatoos hate them worse than anything and would kill one if they caught it. Can't get rid of the cockatoos, because seriously, you can't find anyone to take them. Even the rescue places are maxed out. Did you know that a moluccan cockatoo is as loud as a jet engine? This is why these birds are not in the house. And I can't move them into the house because I am seriously allergic to parrots now, which causes a type of pneumonia that I'm taking steroids for.

I don't really like using poison and I couldn't bring myself to put out antifreeze. Can't have a professional do it, because we'd have to move the 'toos in the house which is not a good thing for me.

Unfortunately, the stepson didn't help by putting a bunch of boxes in the garage that had food in them. Didn't know about that until the rats let me know. My dog is a competent rat killer, so I think I'm going to go with cleaning the garage a bit, making sure her shots are up to date and maybe have her spend a night or two out there. If nothing else, they'll be outside when the weather warms up again in a month or so.

Then black men need to clean up their act, and start pulling their weight, don't they?

The libs always act as though the high incarceration rate of black men is an indictment of the system. I'd buy that if black areas were crime-free havens of communal comity.

But seeing as how they're battle zones, and that the primary cause of death of blackmales 15-25 is homicide by other black males, maybe these shitheads belong in prison. Is that just possible?

That assumes that China believes that Kim is actually in charge, rather than being some random fatty installed as figurehead by a military clique.

If it's a clique, then China will have to organise accidents for more people. And this is harder to do.

That's why there's such a high crime rate among immigrant Chinese restaurant workers.

Buddy of mine grew up in a poor Chinese family. His dad was a waiter in Chinatown. They lived in crappy part of town. Their house was ... spartan and small. Pretty much zero luxuries. They had an ancient TV and that was about it. Stay at home mom.

His childhood friend was a black guy. Black guy ended up in jail for assault and narcotics.

Then black men are to blame for deserting black mothers, aren't they?

Bottom line: the etiology of the problem is beside the point. That is, why black men commit more crimes is another issue; the question before the house was why more black men are incarcerated, and that's because they commit more crimes, in both cases relative to whites and other groups.

http://books.google.com/books?id=lfEtAAAAIAAJpg=PA239

I got more, from evil sources. So I've linked to WEB Du Bois who was an honest-to-god Leninist and civil-rights activist, as well as being a bit black himself.

The black population ran up a lot of murders back then, too. And this when didn't dare assault whites - well, not much (they got lynched when they did).

530 black crime has been much higher than white (and all other ethnic groups) crime for as long as we've had crime statistics. It was higher long before the black family disintegrated.

And the black crime rate has gone down in the last two decades even as single motherhood has increased among blacks. It's still much higher than white, hispanic, or asian crime.

The order of criminality goes black, hispanic, white, asian.

Asians are the most law abiding group in America.

And there are ethnic variations among whites in America. Southern whites are more criminal. Scandinavian whites are the least criminal. Upper midwest and new england have most law-abiding whites.

No, he doesn't, and frankly, neither do those getting into the origins of black criminality. The point is whether black criminality exists, not where it comes from.

The original point referred to Obama's statement regarding the rate of incarceration of black men, with the implication that the criminal justice system was somehow at fault, i.e., that blacks are imprisoned out of proportion to the incidence of criminal behavior in blacks.

The fact is that blacks are disproportionately incarcerated because they are disproportionately involved in crime, sothe data do not support Obama's implication of any unfairness in the criminal justice system. Why blacks are disproportionately involved in crime is another, separate issue.

Two different issues:

1) Are blacks disproportionately incarcerated because they are unfairly singled out, or because they are disproportionately involved in crime?

Answer: they are disproportionately involved in crime.

2) Why are blacks disproportionately involved in crime?

We can argue about 2), once we agree on 1), but so far we've yet to achieve consensus on 1).

Another lie that TFG and Eric Holder are now pushing is that blacks get longer sentences than whites do for similar crimes. That just isn't true, and government statistics on this shows just the opposite -- blacks actually get shorter prison terms than whites for equivalent crimes on average.

603 Single motherhood is not the cause of crime. That's a lie.

Single motherhood among whites has nearly doubled since 1990. Yet the crime rate has gone down sharply.

Black single motherhood rates has gone up slightly since 1990, but again the crime rate has gone down sharply.

It's not the cause.

Bullshit. The "rocket launcher button" is the sensor switch that turns the rifle into full double automatic when it senses kids. When that happens, the gun's magazine then holds 10K rounds that can be fired on full auto, but only at school children.

Out of curiosity, my 20 year oldgod-daughter and her 3 older sisters are black. I really, really pray that they marry white guys that truly appreciate them and treat them right.

794 You're wrong about Ken Cuccinelli. It is his job as AG to defend Virginia's statutes on the books, whether he agrees with them or not (and you might have reported on that angle before you took him to task). If I were him, I would remind the electorate of that as part of his gubernatorial campaign, and recommend to the public that if they want this changed, they should take the issue up with their legislators.
Cuccinelli stands in vivid contrast to vermin like Jerry Brown, who refused to defend Prop 8 in court when he was AG, even though it was approvedby the voters directly, and Ken Salazar when he was AG in Colorado, who refused to defend astate constitutional amendment prohibiting localities from adopting anti-discrimination ordinances applicable to homosexuals.

817 Tom.

You are annoying. That IS a bannable offense yet he has not banned you.

The commenters here have repeatedly tried to cajole you into another direction, yet you persist.

If you wanted to participate in this blog you would take cues from those around you, yet you do not.

It is clear that what you do want to do is draw attention to yourself. You have succeeded. But, you have lost any respect you might have gained through your participation here.

Even now, you still have an opportunity to correct the situation, if you so choose.

819 #858: We all censor ourselves all the time. This is a place to let loose, sure, but when you're warned to get off your current topic, just let it go.

Even if Ace agreed with you that your initial comment wasn't banworthy, and that Maet was out of line, you reaction to the warning would be grounds for banning in and of itself, IMO.

Respect the cob-loggers.

You push, and push, and push as if what you have to say is more important than the tone of the thread. You are not very good at taking cues.

One night, you may bring up the case and there may be those who choose to engage you in the topic, but neither last night or tonight are those nights, so you should either join in or move on.

But, I'm the CDC of record collectors. Somebody's gotta know what makes that stuff tick.

890 Good Morning Morons;


Please pass this on to the Morning News Thread. I wil not be here for the news thread as I have to go to the hospital shortly for some blood work and tests in preparation for a CT Scan tomorrow. So no news links today.


Maybe Gabe will have some links today.

891 Still banned?

Posted by: teej at April 08, 2013 05:23 AM (QbKVX)

892 Vic, you mentioned that this weekend. I'll be at work by then but I'm sure someone will remember, eventually, and pass it along.

Posted by: teej at April 08, 2013 05:26 AM (3R0Zs)

893 Hopefully someone will fill in. There is a lot of significant stuff out there this morning. It looks like the RINOs in the Senate are going to sell us out on amnesty and gun control. And if they talk to crying Boner he will sell us out too.

894 And L, elle, if you see this darlin', I tried to say goodnight to everyone last night in the previous thread.
I ran into that stinking banned IP address again. I think it's a phone thing and roving ip's or something.

Posted by: teej at April 08, 2013 05:33 AM (AoY8i)

895 Well folks, time to go. It will probably afternoon before I get back.

Posted by: Vic at April 08, 2013 05:45 AM (53z96)

896 That DHS checkpoint video?
Should I mention that this was covered years ago? In one of those totally out in looney left field videos? By that loon of all loons, Alex Jones?
Naw, better not.

897 Next on the Obama Hit List: 401Ks

Obama just wants to make sure that nobody is richer than him when he retires. His ego would not allow it.

898 Chin up. Stiff upper lip and all that Vic.

899 Stay lucky, Vic.

903 1000th!

Oh, early?

Woke up 2 hours before my alarm. What's this about? I went outside for a walk... Where's the sun? I look on AoS.. Where's the morning news posts? This is so weird... I don't even know if I should start the coffee!

You would have thought the HOA would have delayed until the trial but maybe they were afraid of an even bigger award if Zimmerman is convicted.

I would guess that the amount paid will be equal to the amount of liability insurance the HOA carried, and the insurance company was disinclined to go to court.

905 "...substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving."

Who in the fuck do these shit-eating cocksuckers currently running the show think they are to determine what's "reasonable" for everyone else?
