Many conservatives have been weighing in the US Senate race for Shane Osborn. While Osborn is a conservative, I think many have moved too quickly to support Osborn without reviewing his potential pitfalls. Nebraska Watchdog has looked at the incomes of all the candidates and have pretty much shelved Dinsdale as a rich banker and Bart McLeay as a rich lawyer. The Nebraska Watchdog appeared to attack Sasse for making money on speaking engagements. However, anyone familiar with other conservative warriors will point out Ronald Reagan made money speaking for General Electric and Sarah Palin has been a paid commentator for Fox News. So this really should have not been a surprise to many of my conservative friends but they still hold hostility as if such funding is from hideous lobbyists or worse. However, when I read about Osborn, these things jumped out at me: Commercial property in Red Falls, Minn., valued at $250,000 to $500,000 Osborn sits on several boards as well. President of the Princ ...
Black History Lesson Final Entry 1981 Ronald Reagan a former Hollywood actor and spokesman for General Electric, becomes the fortieth president of the United States. His policies, mainly Reaganomics and the Wsr on Druds, which many would call a "War on Blacks" would have a particularly devastating effect on Black people. ABC's 20/20 news magazine airs the first national TV story on hip-hop titled "Rappin to the Beat." Later in the year, ABC News would air snippets of a Rock Steady Crew performance at Lincoln Center. Both television events would help to popularize hip-hop culture with many Americans who were unfamilar with it. New York City Mayor Ed Koch declares a "war on graffiti allotting over $22 million to build double fences with razor edges in 18 subway yards and employ guard dogs. Despite his efforts, graffiti writers, rather than be deterred would grow more motivated to tag and intensified their efforts.

When 30 large companies, such as Verizon and General Electric, make a total of $160 billion in U.S. profits from 2008-2010 according to the Citizens for Tax Justice and pay NO federal income taxes there is a substantial loss of revenue to the U.S. Treasury. Two thirds of corporations pay no income tax on their profits under the Swiss cheese tax code. Moreover, the corporate welfare they receive in various modes, including free research, development, and inflated government contracts (a disguised subsidy) is hardly a recycling of their taxes. Just taxing corporations at the rate paid in the prosperous nineteen sixties would bring in hundreds of billions of dollars yearly. Another great revenue producer is a tiny Wall St. speculation sales tax, a far tinier rate than what you pay in sales taxes. What about taxing capital gains and dividends the same as ordinary income? That was the case under Ronald Reagan. Then there is the bloated military budget, so full of redundancies, waste, boondoggle weapons program ...
From 1954 to 1962, Ronald Reagan served as host of a popular Sunday evening television program called General Electric Theater. During that time he also spent ten weeks each year traveling the country as GE's roving ambassador. By the time the show concluded its eight-year run, Ronald Reagan, by his own account, had visited 139 GE research and manufacturing facilities. He walked the plant floors, toured offices and met over 250,000 individual employees.
Not to date myself but, remember when Ronald Reagan talked about all of those "welfare queens" driving Cadillacs? "Anne has a couple of Cadillacs." - Willard Mitt Romney The real welfare queens in this Country are Boeing, Chevron, Monsanto, General Electric, General Dynamics, Koch Industries, etc., etc., etc. I could spend all day listing them! The next time anyone talks about people in the 47% that, according to Mitt Romney don't pay taxes, tell them the following truth: The average, non-disabled family of 4 who does not pay Federal taxes makes $27,000 / year General Electric was also part of that 47% who didn't pay Federal Income Taxes last year...they made $14,200,000,000 Pretty telling in my humble opinion!
This isn’t the first time Americans have had to deal with a tax code that lets the nation’s richest firms get away with shirking their tax responsibilities. In the middle of his presidency, then-President Ronald Reagan learned that a number of big corporations, including his former employer, General Electric, were completely escaping paying federal corporate income taxes. “I didn’t realize things had gotten that far out of line,” Reagan told his Treasury secretary, Donald T. Regan, according to his 1988 memoir. So Reagan undertook a comprehensive tax reform effort that actually raised the corporate taxes and closed numerous loopholes that allowed big firms to dodge their tax responsibilities. As part of these reforms, Reagan passed the 1986 Tax Reform Act. This law “raised corporate taxes by $120 billion over five years and closed corporate tax loopholes worth about $300 billion over that same period.”
He may be the patron saint of limited government, but Ronald Reagan started out as a registered Democrat and New Deal supporter. An F.D.R. fan, the Gipper campaigned for Helen Gahagan Douglas in her fruitless 1950 Senate race against Richard Nixon and encouraged Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for President as a Democrat in 1952. While he was working as a spokesman for General Electric, however, his views shifted right. "Under the tousled boyish haircut," he wrote Vice President Nixon of John F. Kennedy in 1960, "is still old Karl Marx." By the time it actually happened in 1962, Reagan's decision to cross over to the GOP didn't come as much of a surprise. "I didn't leave the Democratic Party," he famously said. "The party left me."
His business experience reads like this, after graduating from college with a C average he became a sportscaster, an actor, he was elected president of the screen actors guild because of his collective bargaining skills, he was a narrator for Army training and recruit films, later he became a spokesperson for General Electric. His political career started as Governor of California where first he lower spending and then instituted the largest tax increase in state history when his policies failed to generate the revenue needed to run his state, as President in 8 years he tripled the national debt, his name was Ronald Reagan! 32 years later we have Mitt Romney preaching you should have at least 3 years of business experience to be able to run for president, and yet his economic battle plan called Reaganomics comes from a guy that NEVER STARTED UP OR RAN A BUSINESS OF HIS OWN!
