$1 Billion in Taxes

It’s been reported that Facebook founder owes the IRS a cool $1 billion. Which goes to show you that if Dr. Evil wanted the everyone to pay him $1 billion dollars he should have gotten a job with the government and simply tax the people.

So what can Dr. Evil, I mean the government, do with $1 billion nowadays? The Afghan war is costing the American tax payers $300 million a day, so Mark Zuckerberg can foot the fill for a little over three days himself.

To deploy a single soldier in Afghanistan, it is reported as costing somewhere between $850,000 to $1,200,000 a year. Mark Zuckerberg’s tax bill can support about 1,000 soldiers in the field for a whole year.

The Presidential Birther Debate

I’ve read, seen, and talked with people from all races that are enraged that President Obama released the long form of his birth certificate. Some people have passionately equated birthers, those that believe that President Obama was not a natural born citizen of the United states, to racists. The reason why some people in the left associate birthers as racists is they claim that no other president, which happen to be white, had to prove themselves as patriots and Americans. People are very sensitive about race and any criticism of the president is seen as presidential racism.

All president’s have had to prove themselves. For example similar questions have been asked before with white presidents and candidates. For one, it is well known that John McCain was born in Panama, in US control territory. During the 2008 campaign, there was a lot of debate and discussion in the media about whether John McCain was American because he was born outside of the United States. In 2004, John Kerry was questioned about his patriotism and military service due to the swift boat incident and the purple heart he earned and later discarded. During his presidency, George W. Bush’s air nation guard record and college transcripts were made public to general criticism. And lets not forget that JFK’s American-ness and allegiance was questioned because he was an Irish Catholic.

There is no question in my mind and in the media that President Obama will win his re-election in 2012. This is one of the reasons why to date no republican has declared themselves as a candidate. President Obama has already begun fund raising and if 2008 is any indication he will raise close to a billion dollars towards his campaign. President Obama will raise more money than any other candidate and it is his campaign to lose. From this perspective, there is no reason for him to disclose his long form birth certificate. Do not under estimate the President, this is a political and calculated move. You have to remember that the weeks leading up to the President releasing the long form birth certificate, the far left leaning media was talking about the President Obama’s birth certificate twice as much as any far right candidate. This is political theater at its best.

As President Obama stated, this is a “sideshow and carnival of barkers” in which the President himself is the ringmaster. This debate is a political tactic to divide and conquer the will of the American people. While both sides of this political circus bark and bicker in unison about non-issues, Americans are dealing with difficult situations every day, such as a weak dollar, prolong recession, three wars, falling home prices, high unemployment, failing infrastructure, rising health care costs, illegal torture, poor performing school, $5 gas prices at the pump, and institutionalized corruption from Wall Street to the Federal Reserve.

It is the nature of democracy to question your public officials. Each president will have his own set of circumstances that dictate the questioning. But don’t underestimate the media’s involvement in planting the seed in peoples minds in the form of surveys and polls and interviews of random people in the street. There are a lot of issues that don’t get any air time and everything you see in your nightly network news is crafted and edited to implant an idea in your mind.

Each president and candidate has had to answer his critics, it’s the nature of the job. I for one will encourage the President release more information, that he be as transparent as possible. For example, I’ve enjoyed looking at the official released IRS documents for the last two presidents and vice presidents. I found it interesting how Joe Biden makes no income outside of his Vice President salary. It is not racism to demand more transparency from our government, its elected officials, and all of its agencies. I wish we all demanded more of our government and that we all read the laws and bills that they enact.
