In researching the reason that individuals, trusts and other entities choose to deposit their money in offshore accounts, such as in the Cayman Islands and in Swiss accounts, the overriding element seems to be secrecy. So much secrecy in fact, that the CIA had to make stronger attempts to monitor these funds, their sources and its flow, because it was suspected that Al Qaeda used offshore accounts, the same ones used by Mitt Romney as disclosed in his income tax reports, to channel money to its operatives.
It’s actually good to see that while money definitely plays a huge part in how an election turns out, that when people feel that they are being pressured to vote a certain way, they generally rebel against that and vote another way. You could feel the coronation of Mitt Romney was underway since the beginning of the Republican Primary, endorsements from the most high-profile Republicans came fast and furious and it rained money on his campaign and PACs. GOP favorite son, Chris Christie, in exchange for the “King Makers” promise of a Vice-Presidential nod, became Romney’s fan club presiden
Certain members of Congress have blasted Wikipedia and Google for their protests of PIPA and SOPA, the so-called piracy bills making their way through Congress, which the media giants label censorship bills, because of how they have protested by taking their fight to the public and using their sites to deliver their message. Yet what does Congress do when they cannot negotiate their way to gaining support for a bill they support, they go to the public in much the same way. They and their allies try their hardest to get on television to speak loudly and often, which for many Americans actu
We hold nothing against Romney and the amount of money he is worth, estimated to be around $300,000,000, in fact many Americans, as Romney said it himself, hate on me because they are envious of me. We would not take it that far either, we know of people that have nothing, but yet smile all day long, while working, eating, playing with the kids and enjoying sex with their loved “one”. Then we know those that have it all that seem miserable all the time, worrying who’s after what they have and making sure they never lose it. Of course most of us would welcome the chance to see if we could
That old phrase that is never talked about anymore, usury, that was actually a Christian ban on making money solely off of money and for which there are biblical verses in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim books of faith:
Christian Old Testament:
[Exodus 22:25] If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.
“Government is too big” is one of the cornerstone mantras of the GOP and must be undressed to discover what hidden meaning may be there. Rick Santorum said on camera what most of the Candidates think, that he does not believe that “White Americans should be making Black Americans’ lives better” by supporting social programs such as welfare. There are actually more White Americans on welfare than Black Americans. We would argue that the GOP mantra and the candidates’ allowing those words to actually come out while they are on the political stump, is not by accident, but instead by design
It was the Reverend Al Sharpton who said it best when he said that we should look at what the Politician does for the donor and not only the fact that he/she received campaign funds from a particular donor with an agenda. What he was referring to was the fact that someone brought up that indicated that Wall Street Firms and Big Banks were donating heavily to Barack Obama’s campaign, insinuating that the President was perhaps not the “change” agent that regular citizens clamored for after the financial collapse of 2007. Sharpton argued that while you could not argue with the fact that the
We have been accused of being completely Democratic, anti-Republican and even reminded that all Chicanos (Mexican-Americans) are not Democrats. To the last point, we know that already and that is not our fault, just kidding. We would remind people that currently there is only one race and that is between the Republican Presidential hopefuls wanting to be nominated to run against Barack Obama and the fireworks emanating from that is what we have been writing about for a while. Honestly, the things we have seen coming out from their debates leaves us wondering how to write about them any o
The Iowa vote is in and it’s Romney by eight votes, and even though the Republican Party Chairman of that State said that the vote could not be certified for up to two weeks, he still congratulated Mitt Romney. You just get the feeling that before the Chairman went on television to report the results, he was advised to “seal the deal” for Romney as much as possible. Santorum is the story of the day, his meteoric rise after Gingrich got “citizened”, shot him up to practically tie for first place so fast, that Romney’s PAC could not get their attack ads up in time to attempt to sink him.
