We are wasting time considering what a politician says. Would someone with access please gather all relevent documents with Obama's signature? This is the true information for our judgement as to his agenda and competence.

Has anyone ever calculated the cost of the income tax? My guess is about 60%. There's the cost of the IRS in administering and collecting the tax, but also there's the cost to each payer; setting up accounts, doing the accounting and filing and much more.. If one does his own taxes, give him the salary of a CPA. I bet the cost of a flat tax or consumption tax would be under 5%. All this so that our rulers can know who is worth what, where they are, etc. Please, someone, prove me wrong.
The Asians that I know around here, the SF peninsula, are intensely concerned with providing their children with the best education available and building a portfolio where they remain free of any major debt, like a mortgage. I have been amazed at their integrity. It puts me to shame. On the other sice, I know only one African American who has similar objectives and is fairly successful. I rarely see in the newspaper a gang of Asians on a crime spree. I think what we have here is a clash of sub-cultures being fed by those who benefit from such distrust. Hatred is a political asset, to be cultivated, defined and readied when dissent is needed in order to distract, i.e. control, the population. Those who see this must must commit to trust.
