These are my thoughts

Tyler (KETK) — A lot of sobering news Tuesday. The New York Times reports the middle class of America is no long the most affluent. I'm sure those at the Times think higher taxes will fix that.
I think the economy needs a good 'ol fashioned kick-start. You can feel it. There is is just something wrong.
This was supposed to be another summer recovery. That will not be a campaign stump speech this summer and fall.
I read where the last five years president has proposed 442 Tax increases. Proposed, thank goodness not all are in effect.
CNSNews reports In the budget proposal he presented to Congress last month, President Barack Obama called for what would be the highest level of sustained taxation ever imposed on the American people, according to the analysis published last week by the Congressional Budget Office.
CNSNews is also reporting Inflation-adjusted federal tax revenues hit an all-time record of $1,428,710,000,000 from the beginning of the fiscal year on Oct. 1 through April 15, the deadline for filing federal tax returns for 2013, according to the Daily Treasury Statement.
I feel many businesses are still afraid to hire and expand because they never know where we'll be kicked next. There is even a Democratic congressman who says the worst part of Obamacare taxes and repression is to come.
I think that's one reason why the Bundy standoff in Arizona is drawing such heat. No matter if Bundy is guilty or not, people see government storm troopers
out there threatening folks and killing livestock.
Here is one bit of advice I saw on Facebook Monday: If you have a ranch like Bundy or have a business, make sure part of the title is named "Benghazi." That way, the federal government will never look your way.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
