WELFARE
Florida passed a law to test people on welfare for drugs. Makes sense you would think. Nobody wants to see people get welfare and then waste the money on drugs. Most everyone thought that they would find tons of people on welfare on drugs. But would you believe only 2% tested positive. As they say, never judge a book by it’s cover.

Click here for the story:
http://www.news-press.com/article/20110828/NEWS01/108280382/Florida-welfare-drug-tests-largely-clean
Did the media or people’s prejudices cause people to think the worst of welfare recipients? Or are they just regular folks whose hard luck forced them into government assistance? Sure, there are those that take advantage of the system but even rich people and even companies work the system. And perhaps they ought to test politicians that passed the law too!

Many states have able bodied people work if they are on welfare as Ohio does. However, federal officials didn’t waive a $32.7 million fine against for Ohio not getting half of able bodied welfare recipients working or pursuing employment. The fine was from 2007 and the fines continued as Ohio is only at 33% currently instead of the required 50%. In order to avoid complaceny I’m all for welfare folks working for their dollars while they look for a real job. And I also think it would be good for them to take a coupon class! Sadly, there are too many low-paying jobs out there and not enough better paying jobs that make it tough for families to make ends meet. I know of many people that don’t work because it’s too expensive to pay for daycare. It’s a vicious cycle that would be solved with an excess of good paying jobs.

RICH
Did you see the comments by Warren Buffet that the U.S. government should stop coddling the super-rich? Buffet paid less in taxes at 17.4% of his taxable income, less than most of the middle class. His federal tax equaled just 64 shares of his Berkshire stock! Yet there were politicians fighting for them to keep their tax breaks when the country needs the money to reduce their debt on top of cutting spending.

The rich make so much that they also pay a disproportionate percentage of taxes. Trickle down economics didn’t work as the tax breaks for the rich were extended and there wasn’t a surge of jobs. And remember regressive and progressive taxes balance out what the rich and poor pay. For instance, a poor person still pays higher taxes as a percentage of their income for gas, merchandise, utilities, and other commodities than the rich pay. In theory, with higher taxes for the rich it’s supposed to even out. Hence the reason a flat tax, depending on how it is put together, would not exactly be fair to the poor and middle class. There are a lot of schemes out there that the rich and powerful will float out there to make more money and they will use their dollars and power to effect the media to get the message out like the changes to social security. Yet people like Buffet don’t even want the tax breaks! And while the rich have seen their income surge, the poor and middle class haven’t, causing issues with consumer spending which is what the economy needs. When the economy gets better then that is a time to look at tax cuts for the rich and everyone else, but not at this time. The rich can absorb it unlike the poor and middle class.

CEO PAY
Get this. Twenty-five of the 100 highest paid U.S. CEOs earned more last year than their companies paid in federal income tax, a study by IPS found. It also found many of the companies spent more on lobbying than they did on taxes.

Compensation for the 25 CEOs with pay surpassing corporate taxes averaged $16.7 million, according to the study, compared to a $10.8 million average for S&P 500 CEOs. Here is a sample:
* eBay whose CEO John Donahoe made $12.4 million, but which reported a $131 million refund on its 2010 current U.S. taxes.
* Boeing, which paid CEO Jim McNerney $13.8 million, sent in $13 million in federal income taxes, and spent $20.8 million on lobbying and campaign spending
* General Electric where CEO Jeff Immelt earned $15.2 million in 2010, while the company got a $3.3 billion federal refund and invested $41.8 million in its own lobbying and political campaigns.
Others that were part of the list in the past were Tyco, Enron, and Worldcom and we all know what happened to them.

Two-thirds of the firms studied kept their taxes low by utilizing offshore subsidiaries in tax havens such as Bermuda, Singapore and Luxembourg. The remaining companies benefited from accelerated depreciation.

Greed can breed the worst in people. Paying people a fair wage at all levels is needed. There have even been CEOs getting paid a ton in bonuses even when their company has lost millions and their stock value has plummeted. Banks that almost put us into a Depression are a good example. CEOs should not be the ony people to benefit when a company does well also. When companies make record profits it should be shared with those at all levels of the company. Many companies do that as they know it will help motivate people to produce even more in profits but there are some that don’t. That should raise some red flags at those companies.

COMMENTS ON MY BLOG
Here’s another message I got from a spammer. Good to see their family loves me blog. What I get a kick out of is that his cousin and I apparently have secret insights into his problem. Yes, maybe when I wrote about Staples deals he was down about not finding Elmers glue for 5 cents. Here it is:

I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You’re wonderful! Thanks!

KROGER
Kroger is eliminating doubles from their biggest to smallest market from what it looks like even though they said they were only eliminating doubles in Houston. Dallas/Fort Worth and Tucson became the latest victims of Kroger eliminating doubles. Other markets will be next! If you aren’t happy about them eliminating doubles please voice your displeasure at http://www.bringbackdoubles.com and let store managment know also.

Just like when Coke listened to consumers when they got rid of New Coke an brought back the Classic Coke, Kroger needs to listen to consumers to do the same. Their gas perks are a joke and many have reported that prices weren’t lowered as Kroger has said they have done.

The other stores in the top 25 list of market share ranked by # stores (with doubles): Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Tuscon, Phoenix, Detroit, Cincinnati, Denver, Columbus, Nashville, Louisville, Indianapolis, Wichita, Dayton, Little Rock, Lexington, Toledo… Kroger dominates the market share in about 50 major market areas, only in 4 of these markets they do not rank first in market share.

The Fox station in Dallas did a story about the issue and mentioned the Bringbackdoubles.com site! Here is a link to the story:
