Veteran’s Day

Posted by Billy On November - 11 - 2014

November 11th is the official day the United States remembers those who have ever served in the military. A day for us to thank those who have protect our freedoms and liberties not only here in America, but around the world. Originally proclaimed as Armistice Day, Congress made it a federal holiday in remembrance of the end of W.W. II
So today I would like to take this time to give my respect to each and every member of the armed forces for their service to protecting those from the forces of evil. I never served in any of the branches, but now later in my life, I wish I would have enlisted for at least one tour. The experience and knowledge I would have received would have prepared me better for my career as well as my business.
Thanks again for those who were willing to put their lives on the line for those they don’t even know.

The End Of Ethanol Subsidies

Posted by Billy On January - 7 - 2012

In a previous post I wrote about how Congress voted not to keep the ethanol subsidies going. A program that needed assistance when it first started, but now has grown enough to support itself without the taxpayer’s money. Six billion dollars was given to the ethanol industry each year. Congress decided to allow the subsidy to expire to help cut the budget. A plan that when you really look at it, was another political ploy to help the politicians look like their doing their job and following what the American taxpayer wants.

In 2007 President G.W. Bush signed into law a bill that would require oil company refineries to add ethanol into fuel in the United States. So ending the subsidies will not harm the industry when it comes to losing business and causing the ethanol industry to go out of business. In the end, the government has still help pick a winner within the energy industry.

What does that mean for other commodities within the US? Nothing. Corn prices will continue to be within the same range as it has been, as well as other commodities like beef and poultry. Ethanol consumes approximately 25% of the corn grown in the United States. On top of it all, it doesn’t even produce the energy it consumes to create it.

So why is it still being used within the US? I really can’t answer that since I don’t know what is going on behind closed doors in Washington.

The Tax Poem

Posted by Billy On September - 4 - 2011

The Tax Poem.
(this is long but worth the time to read).

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done&nbs p;
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him til
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
‘Taxes drove me
to my doom…’

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation
was one of the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle-class,
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the hell happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’

There is just too much government spending to justify all these taxes.
