The Richest 1% Have Captured America's Wealth -- What's It Going to Take to Get It Back? -Read more  

The 400 richest Americans used to pay  30% of their income on the average to Uncle Sam. Today, they pay 18% on the average. The main reason for the drop in their tax rate of some 40% is the tax cuts by George Bush and 100% republican control in 2003, taking the rate paid on dividends and capital gains down to 15%. Mitt Romney pays 13%. 

Shockingly, the plan to raise the debt ceiling or lower it collects nothing from the wealthiest Americans to reduce our budget deficit. The Republican right wing holds the Obama White House hostage. It’s a sad day for the principle of sharing the pain equitably. Republicans only demand we take more from the needy, the elderly, schools, fire fighters, teachers, lay off public employees…
This mess would not be nearly as bad had we had all those taxes coming in over the last 10 years.

Bill O Reilly Tells How He Rescued a Photographer in Falklands War Zone


 Bill O’Reilly ‘War Zone’ Lie video proof. 

 “I was in a situation one time, in a war zone in Argentina, in the Falklands, where my photographer got run down and then hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete. And the army was chasing us. I had to make a decision. And I dragged him off, you know, but at the same time, I’m looking around and trying to do my job, but I figure I had to get this guy out of there because that was more important.”
Bill O’Reilly in 2013

 I’ve covered wars, okay? I’ve been there. The Falklands, Northern Ireland, the Middle East. I’ve almost been killed three times, okay.”
