Update-random thoughts-trayvon, AFG, GAS, Tax

Trayvon

I had written a long post on the Trayvon-Zimmerman issue but held off while my suspicions were being confirmed. But after the news began to develop what I had written was already becoming old news. So I’ll just a make a couple of short comments.

First I don’t have any idea if Zimmerman was justified in shooting Trayvon although it seems likely. What has happened beyond question is the continued fake outrage, the continued show of hate, violence and outright criminality of the left. Without any facts in hand the weak minded left have pushed for violence and lynching either out of blind hate or the purposeful destruction of civility. Perhaps they believe chaos will somehow benefit the leftist cause. I think they are making a very big mistake.

Afghanistan

Every poll taken now seems to point to the country coming to the conclusion we are wasting time, money and lives in a place that we should just leave and leave now.

The CNN/ORC International survey released Friday indicated only 25% of Americans favored the war in the Asian country. A majority of Republicans voiced opposition to it, for the first time since the war began in 2001.

Just 37% of the general public said things are going well for the U.S. in Afghanistan, while only 34% said America is winning the war. The approval likely contributed to the 55% of those surveyed who said the U.S. should remove all of its troops from the country before 2014.

Twenty-two percent expressed support for the 2014 timetable and an additional 22% said the U.S. should keep some troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014.

For those of you that recall I was calling for this a year ago with warning well before that. While I was a supporter of the initial attack on Afghanistan the mission changed to something unworkable.

Gas Prices

I filled up the other day. The cost was 3.99 a gallon for regular. Just across the street it was 4.05. Now everywhere I look it’s at least 4.05. Nice!

Our President says that more US production wouldn’t have any effect on the price of gas. Humm, wasn’t it his energy secretary that wanted higher prices. Looks like it’s all working according to the plan.

Corporate tax rate

Japan lowering its corporate tax rate the USA is number one as the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Whoo Hoo I knew we could be number one at something again. Now I’m sure the US business community will invest and expand reaaaaaaal soon. How about we lower the rate and completely remove deductions. Hell do that with normal income tax also. We might actually get money into the government from more than just the working middle class. Oh and let’s stop paying people to not work. Just saying.
