Romney’s campaign needs a distraction from weeks of negative media coverage. Forgetting to mention the troops in his convention speech, then jumping the gun on the Benghazi crisis, and calling half of America welfare victims, Romney has not had a great month. Well today, it’s about to change, and I am not sure if releasing his taxes is a good thing, or just the best distraction he’s got right now. At 3:00 PM ET, Governor Romney will release his tax returns and at least change the subject.
According to MSNBC,Romney paid $1.9 million in taxes for an effective tax rate of 14.1%. If rich people like Romney are paying below 20% in taxes, when the effective rate is 36%, why are they advocating cutting taxes even more at a time when our national debt is growing exponentially. Check this out the Romney family gave three times as much to charity…
Friday is upon us and yet another funny can’t-make-this-up story has come our way. According to CBS Sacramento, two neighbors are currently locked in a “bass battle” of sorts. Seems one man got tired of hearing his neighbor blast gospel music all the time and decided to combat it…by blasting porn through his own speakers.
“I decided to watch the porn on the back deck,” said the Twain Harte man, who didn’t want to give his name.
The man also didn’t want to show his face but was willing to tell CBS13 his story Tuesday, saying he moved his big-screen TV out on his deck Sunday evening and turned up the volume on a porno flick – all aimed at getting back at his neighbors.
Have you ever gotten a spanking as a kid or where put on punishment and your mother/father tells you that it hurts them more than it hurts you? While it’s something you probably didn’t believe at the time, as an adult those things have a new perspective. And this story of Taraji P. Henson makes me think of that kind of thinking. I’m sure her son Marcell will see the value in this lesson down the road. While on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Taraji talked about making Marcell sit out his first semester of college and making him find a job.
Even though he is privileged, he doesn’t remember the bad times when we were eating Hamburger Helper, and peanut butter and jelly, he remembers all the good times. I don’t want to raise this privileged kid, who’s out of touch, so I made him sit out the first semester and he has to get a job. He called his grandmother, he was like, ‘It’s hard out here, it’s hard to find a job.’ So I was like, ‘Yeah, I need you to know that.
Has it really come to this, Kanye? Please tell us, it’s a huge coincidence that your sex tape is creating a buzz the same week G.O.O.D Music-Cruel Summer’s album is being released. If it couldn’t get any more thirsty looking, the woman in the sex tape resembles Kim Kardashian, except that she is barely legal, 18, and reportedly says she’s married. The actual tape has not been released, yet, but some of the details have been via Radar Online…
There is something about Chad Johnson that I like, not sure what it is because I also think he’s obnoxious and over the top. But in this interview with Inside the NFLthat will air on Showtime, Chad comes across honest and sincere. He is open to all questions, he makes no denials, and he reflects on what he needs to do to get his life *in my Tamar voice*. Check out Chad close to tears, talking openly about his mistakes and missing his wife, ex wife.
What I need to do is work on Chad, that’s it…I don’t think, there’s nothing I can say to her [Evelyn] because she’s already heard it all. She’s already heard it all. What can I say, but through my actions. Actions speak louder than words and this is the time for me to show action.
Step 1, admitting you have a problem. Like he says, actions speak louder than words, so we will wait and see.
