Are you one of the lucky ones who needs no minimum wage?  OK if not then pay attention this is a joke if ever and the joke is being played on the heart strings of the American public!

If you look at the people who are always crying WOLF as the saying goes its those who could care less about you and me they are to busy claiming millions of dollars in PAC money each year to give a damn!

Now is election year and so the crying towel is in place for the political clowns to come out, oh did I say come out?  Well OK so these clowns are coming out and that is the joke to start with.

Do the math, if you give these so called under paid indigent workers a dollar who gets the bulk of that dollar?  Times up, the correct answer is the "Government"!  That's who, so check it out as I say do the math and here it is:  

The feds get 36 cents, states get anywhere from 6 cents to 10 cents, then there is SDI average from state to state about 5.8 percent or 6 cents, then there is social insecurity another 28 cents, then the new tax for obamacare about 9 cents, now add that up and you have about 89 cents, OK so how does that help the so called low income worker?

It does not help for any one, but if they did what Jimmy Carter did and that was to tax only over ten dollars so if you were under that you paid no tax, with inflation the rate should be anyone who earns fifteen dollars an hour or less should not have to pay tax! 

This way you definitely do help the low income worker and his family to survive because taxes eat up almost  half or more from the low income earner so this makes a lot of sense and the plutocrats should work to that end instead of crying WOLF all the damn time!

Do you agree or disagree with me please comment and let me know if this makes sense to you, if you do I will be sure to add it to future articles along this line.

BUSINESS AS USUAL!                    article by:  James Thomas Fridas

April 4, 2014

Did you know that all computers are not made in China!?  While many are such as the infamous Apple which built a city and is making the famous Apple brand in China for pennies on the dollar and selling them here in America for a kings ransom which I will never buy, we now have new makers in America!

Yes, isn't that exciting news?  You bet it is and like Apple when Steven Jobs was building his new company in his garage these new companies are exclusive here in America!  One such company is now in Orlando Florida, the name of this company is "LOTUS" not to be confused with the software by the same name.

Then there are others such as Union Built which is made in Ohio, WOW!  In America of all places!  Can you imagine that?  In addition there are more, but the real news is that while many companies went abroad there are those that realize its smart to be made in America, companies like Dell and Gateway are actually now back in the states and many more in time will be as well, Apple may never come back who cares!?  

Another upstart is Systemax, as well as a company named "ZT", then there is another company named "Polwell", hows that for new companies in America, these are small but in time I believe that they may show up companies like Apple, and I plan on buying American made soon!  

I hope you are a fan of Made in America as I am because we need to let the makers of products in America that its our money and our decision, my only regret is that Curtis Mathis televisions are no longer in business when the CEO was killed on an airline the company was unable to grow as the son did not seem to have his fathers business acumen and business sense, but that is the way of the world.

If you watch this  area of my newsletters I will add more in time about new companies in America, so thank you for reading my newsletters!
