Future Cheerleaders

video

Seriously...my girls make me laugh so hard!  Savannah can't keep from laughing and Shayde looks like a spastic when she turns!  I love it!  Sorry about the crappy quality - I had to use my cell phone.  You know my camera that Jay is not allowed to use...well it's hunting season and he stole my camera.

Shayde's Prayer

Let me preface this prayer...  The girls were not listening and Shayde stuck her "booty" at me.  Savannah laughed...so they both got swats right before the prayer.  So here is Shayde's prayer:


Please bless that mom will be nice to us, that we will be good kids and that when mom is mean to us...Jesus will be meaner to her. Amen

Funny stuff.

The Women

I went with my friend Jenny to the movies tonight.  We saw "The Women"...little disappointed to say the least.  It was not the chick flick I hoped it would be.  Oh well Jenny and I had fun.

I came home and had a little too much fun with photo booth on the Mac.  I don't care who you are...these are funny.

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

McCain - 0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.

Obama - 28% on profit from ALL home sales. (How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.)

DIVIDEND TAX

McCain - 15% (no change)

Obama - 39.6% - (How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.)

INCOME TAX

McCain - (no changes)
Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $31,250

Obama - (reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)
Single making 30K - tax $8,400
Single making 50K - tax $14,000
Single making 75K - tax $23,250
Married making 60K - tax $16,800
Married making 75K - tax $21,000
Married making 125K - tax $38,750
** Under Obama our taxes could almost double **

Inheritance Tax

McCain - 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

Obama - Restore the inheritance tax (Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, & homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.)

New Taxes Proposed by Obama

New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 sqft. New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already). New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity). New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least...New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

***I can't take credit for this information on my blog. It was in an e-mail that I received. However, I will take credit for passing the information along. I am completely disturbed by Barack Obama. I don't know how anyone can vote for someone who does not believe in being a self-sufficient "energy speaking" country. Also, even though there are more issues than this - I could NEVER vote for anyone who supports abortion! I know we have our free agency, but there is a time and a place for the law to step in. We don't believe in murder and support the law stepping in to punish when a murder is committed. So why can't the law step in and prevent a murder of someone who doesn't have a voice? AAAHHHGGGGGHHHH!!! I'll step off my soapbox now! Go out and VOTE - VOTE - VOTE!!!
