2013 can be an even better year than 2012

People will celebrate President Obama again in 2013

2012 was a very good year.   We saw:

The Affordable Health Act validated by the Supreme Court.

Immigration reform allowing people to have rights in the U.S.

Gay Marriage became the law in several states.  More to come in 2013.

And President Obama won reelection!

In 2013 we can look forward to the rich paying their fair share in taxes, bans on guns and new efforts to combat Climate Change.

Time to make American a GUN FREE ZONE

Time to stop the violence.


Time Person of the Year: President Obama

Definitely deserving, considering how many foes and villains he took down this year.

Is there anyone else who would've been a better candidate?

What would Lara do about the 'Fiscal Cliff'? My solution.

First, the most import thing making sure that the rich start paying their fair share in taxes.   Secondly, we have to make sure there is no reduction in tax dollars going towards education, health care, Green Energy, science and mass transit projects such as high speed rail.

We can do this with the following:

Anyone making over $50,000 a year should pay 20% in taxes.

Anyone making over $100,000 a year should pay 25% in taxes.

Anyone making over $150,000 a year should pay 30% in taxes.

Anyone making over $200,000 a year should pay 35% in taxes.

Anyone making over $250,000 a year should pay 40% in taxes.

Anyone making over $500,000 a year should pay 45% in taxes.

Anyone making over $1,000,000 a year should pay 50% in taxes.

Any corporation that has profits that exceed a million dollars a year should pay 50% in taxes and 25% of those profits should automatically be distributed to employees for their health care needs.

We also need reductions in spending, especially with regard to military spending.    Right now, an obscene $700 billion a year is given to the military every year.    Let's get that down to $100 billion or less.   We don't need to be spending money there.

President Obama beats Republicans on Election Day

and he'll beat them again in the Fiscal Cliff battle!

President Obama is too smart for Republicans plus he has the support of the people.   Voters overwhelmingly cast their vote for President Obama and Democrats.  

We want higher taxes for the rich.   Time for them to pay their fair share and contribute to society.
