i play, the market game (stock), and I can easily prove, to anyone here, that i make crazy money

by dancing the dance ... and this is from, a post that one of my oldest friends posted to me ...

thanks, Lloyd H. ...



Ok, I did not write this, but here are some great points about this, and the supporting link and study to go with it:

"Barack Obama has been toying with the idea of imposing a tax on windfall profits on US oil companies. Take a look at this latest statement he made in Raleigh, North Carolina. He said, "I'll make oil companies like Exxon pay a tax on their windfall profits, and we'll use the money to help families pay for their skyrocketing energy costs and other bills." Gee, that sounds like a wealth distribution plan if I've ever heard one. Rob from the rich to give to the "poor."

Ok .. first of all, just what are "windfall profits?" Does anyone have a handy definition? Might I offer one? darn right I might. Try this: "A tax levied on a industry by a politician eager to pander to economically ignorant voters who, for whatever reason, are upset with that industry."

This term "windfall profits" has become another buzzword for liberals, and particularly the Barack Obama campaign. A majority of Americans probably couldn't tell you the first thing about windfall profits ... but the word inflicts these feelings of evil and wealth envy. Therefore, the Obama campaign will continue to use this fancy term to get you all riled up. Politicians are good at that.

Once again we run up against the economic ignorance of the American people. Most people couldn't tell you the difference between a profit and a profit margin if their flat-screen TVs depended on it. The profit margins – the amount of money they earn for a dollar of sales – have actually declined a bit. Banking institutions, cosmetics companies and pharmaceutical companies are just part of a long list of businesses that earn more than the evil oil companies.

Hopefully most Americans have enough economic smarts to know that the profits from these oil companies belong to the shareholders. Problem is, these people probably think that the shares in these oil companies are fat-cat insiders just reaping millions a year from their investments.


Throughout the oil and natural gas industries only about 1.5% of the stock is owned by company executives. Now this statistic doesn't come from the oil companies themselves, the numbers – and the numbers that follow – come from Bill Clinton's undersecretary of commerce for economic affairs; one Robert J. Shapiro.

Here's what Shapiro has to say about the ownership of the other 98.5% of oil company shares: "The data show that ownership of industry shares is broadly middle class, with the majority of industry shares held by institutional investors, often on behalf of millions of Americans through mutual funds, pension funds and individual retirement accounts."

So ... when Barack Obama talks about a windfall profits tax, just who's money is he going to seize? He's talking about taking the savings, investments and retirement funds of middle class Americans.

Pardon my language ... but would you folks please wise up out there? Quit being so damned ignorant to what is really going on!

You want more details on just who owns the shares? OK, I have those details. Just remember, when Obama talks about windfall profits --- THESE are the people who's money he plans to seize:

Again ... from the Shapiro study:

Almost 43 percent of oil and natural gas company shares are owned by mutual funds and asset management companies that have mutual funds. Mutual funds manage accounts for 55 million U.S. households with a median income of $68,700.

Twenty seven percent of shares are owned by other institutional investors like pension funds. In 2004, more than 2,600 pension funds run by federal, state and local governments held almost $64 billion in shares of U.S. oil and natural gas companies. These funds represent the major retirement security for the nation's current and retired soldiers, teachers, and police and fire personnel at every level of government.

Fourteen percent of shares are held in IRA and other personal retirement accounts. Forty five million U.S. households have IRA and other personal retirement accounts, with an average account value of just over $22,000.

You see? The people listed in this study are ... YOU! Not fat-cat oil company executives. Not George Bush and Dick Cheney. This is YOUR money he's after ... YOUR money he wants to seize to create yet another government entitlement program ... helping people buy gas and pay electricity bills.

Someone (perhaps John Wayne) once said that it is too bad stupidity isn't painful. Well, in this case is just might be. Look at those median incomes above. That's you, my friends ... and if you sit by and let this anti-capitalist leftist rail against the oil companies; if you sit by and let him pander to the ignorance of the American voters with this idiotic "windfall profits tax" crap ... then try not to *smurf* when your retirement doesn't turn out to be as sweet as you thought it would."


So, there you have it. Oba-Juan Messiah will be taxing us all the way down to the lower middle class with this incentive. Even a smart Democrat (I just made a funny...) should be able to digest that and realize that this is pure power and control of all.

"Barack Obama has been toying with the idea of imposing a tax on windfall profits tax on US oil companies.

Worked for Jimmy Carter didn't it? Well, no. It's clear Obama'd like to see nationalized Health Care as well. Now come the Democrats asking to nationalize the Oil Companies. Yep, that's "change." Sure worked for Hugo Chavez? Well, no.

I expect a little change is good from time to time, but "change" simply for the sake of "change" is just plain silly.

It's important to know just exactly what you're getting yourself into.

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. - Ludwig von Mises

While sewing up a cut on the hand of a 75-year old west Texas rancher, the doctor struck up a conversation. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be the next President.

The old rancher said, “Well ya know somethin' son, Obama is what we used to call a ‘post turtle’.

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a “post turtle” was. The old rancher said, “When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's called a ‘post turtle’. The old rancher saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.

“You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just wonder what kind of a dummy put him up there in the first place!!”
