This Time It’s the Media That’s Guilty of Tax Fraud   Leave a comment

Jamison Foser writes in “MEDIAMATTERS FOR AMERICA:”

When is a tax cut for 98 percent of taxpayers portrayed as a tax increase? When some of the small handful of people whose taxes will go up happen to control the nation’s news media.

Last week, President Obama unveiled a budget outline that extends the Bush tax cuts for all but the top two percent of taxpayers and makes permanent a tax credit of up to $800 for low- and middle-income workers that was included in the recent stimulus package, among other tax cuts.

On the other hand, individual taxpayers with taxable income above $200,000 ($250,000 for families) per year would pay more in taxes under Obama’s plan, under which the tax rates paid on income in the top brackets would revert to their levels under President Clinton in the 1990s — from 33 and 35 percent to 36 and 39.6 percent.’s Daniel Gross estimates that for someone with $350,000 in income, this will amount to about $1,500 a year in increased taxes.

2008 “Best of” Photos   Leave a comment


A single home is left standing among debris from Hurricane Ike September 14, 2008 in Gilchrist, Texas. In its brief, but eventful life, Ike wreaked enough havoc to be blamed for over $31.5 billion in damage and nearly 150 deaths across the Caribbean and Gulf Coast. (David J.

There were many photographic stories in 2008.  Most depict the horrors of human conflict. However, I have selected two top stories impacting southeast Texas.
