1.  “‘Occupy Wall Street’ Tax Proposal Is Backed By Wall Street Itself

The “Buffett tax rule” promoted by Occupy Wall Street is exactly what the Wall Street-owned Obama administration wants

The protesters are pushing for a new tax rule which is supported by the Wall Street-owned Obama administration, therefore the demonstrators are unwittingly doing the bidding of Wall Street itself.

The “Buffett tax rule” will do virtually nothing to make the ‘filthy rich pay their share’ – it will only raise taxes for middle class Americans and middle class businesses.

As the Wall Street Journal reports, “Roughly 90% of the tax filers who would pay more under Mr. Obama’s plan aren’t millionaires, and 99.99% aren’t billionaires.” It is the middle class – not Warren Buffett or Wall Street corporations – who will be most hurt by the very policies the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ crowd are calling for.

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway still owes taxes from 10 years ago. Buffet is the ultimate Wall Street insider – he is the third wealthiest person on the planet. Buffet avoids billions in taxes because most of his interests are based offshore. Indeed, most top corporations pay virtually no income tax, not because of any law that isn’t in place, but because they have parked most of their wealth in offshore tax havens.

Buffett, aided by the Occupy Wall Street protesters who amplify his message, is volunteering the middle class, not himself, for a tax increase, that’s why the Wall Street-owned Obama administration is fully on board with the idea.”

2.  “Alexander’s Curse
Why Blame Pakistan?

Hi! This is your most favourite Non-Nato ally Pakistan that has fought your war on terror since you invaded Afghanistan a decade ago. When you attacked Afghanistan, many had professed that you would last for about a decade if history were any witness. The Soviets before you had a similar experience in Afghanistan. For them, the famous quote by Alexander the Great that Afghanistan “is easy to march into but hard to march out of” had held out. Similarly, when you entered Afghanistan almost a decade after the Soviets had left, your defeat was only a prophesy. Now it’s a reality; a decade later, it will be history.

The Russians withdrew from the black hole not because they’d run short of guns and munitions, tanks and aircraft, men and material, but they had gone broke. If modern military wherewithal could win wars, you wouldn’t have had a chance to invade Afghanistan because Russia’s Red Army would have been still around.

A University of California-educated engineer insisted on calling the forces resisting foreign occupation in Afghanistan “terrorists and insurgents.” When it was argued that the people of a sovereign country had every right to resist foreign occupation of their land, he wouldn’t understand. But asked what would he do if a few bandits barged into his house to dispossess him of it, he replied, “I would pull out my gun…” It’s precisely the situation in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.
