#HorrorStory: #heavyweight #champ #JoeLouis was charged by the IRS 90% of his earnings in his boxing years. Except for help from other celebrities in his final years (Frank Sinatra for one), he would have died a broken, poor man on welfare. It’s his own mistakes, of course, I am sure; but he could never catch up. The IRS even charged him and put him into collection for 90% of his earnings when he donated his entire gates to charity from exhibition fights while he was in the military. There are many more stories like this. #HermanCain’s 9-9-9 tax plan is the closest thing to fair and equal that has ever been proposed, except: once, temporarily to earn revenues during the #CivilWar; then again, 20 years later which was subsequently ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Income tax in the 16th Amendment was finally ratified by the states in Feb. 1913. I do not feel that Americans have been truly free ever since. I believe that Americans are free only when they can earn their money freely. One solution, like Cain said, is that the government should tax our spending more so than our earnings; or equally. Luxury items should be taxed higher than necessities. Thus, I can understand a 9% flat income tax in conjunction with a federal sales tax. Let a human being bring home his earnings. Allow men to be free. Then, tax them …on how they spend their money. Didn’t Lincoln have to remind us that this country was “conceived in liberty” ..?

The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Leonard Fournette of LSU in the 1st Round. I am now a Jacksonville fan. I hope that with Fournette on board that QB Blake Bortles can make the Jaguars competitive in the AFC South. Yes, I “MOST DEF” jumped on board the band wagon with Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars […]
I will explain at some point this weekend why I did not make daiquiriis this weekend like I promised. It is a story that I need to tell. Also, I came on briefly to mention some of my thoughts about last weekend and Father’s Day. Meanwhile, I have to sign off for a while to […]
My brother, Carl Delery, asked me several questions recently which I will try to answer here. They are fine questions. Carl asked: So, your dreams have beginnings middle and ends? Do you have actors play the parts and even roll the credits at the end? Are all your dreams theatrical productions or maybe some are […]
