Missing Model

Image hosted by

Julie Popovich, 20, of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, has been missing since August 11th. She was seen getting into a car with someone witnesses thought she knew. It apparently unlike her to be irresponsible enough to get into a car with a stranger.

Julie is 20, 5'11", 104 pounds. Her family is offering a $5000 reward for information. If you know anything, please contact Ohio authorities at (614) 645-TIPS.

Note: thanks to Anonymous for correcting my mistake!
Another Missing Woman

Amanda Jones, 26, of Pevely, Missouri, has been missing since August 14. Amanda is nine-months pregnant and has a four-year-old at home. Her car was found, unlocked at the Hillsboro Civic Center horse-show grounds in Jefferson County, south of St. Louis.

If you know anything, please contact the police at 636-797-5515.

I just heard on Fox, that the leading cause of death among pregnant women is murder. If you have any information about Amanda, or any other missing person, please call police or the FBI. Think how you would feel if a loved one was missing. Wouldn't you want someone to tell what they know?
Senator Reid

I just read that Senator Harry Reid had a mini-stroke earlier this week. As opposed as I am to Senator Reid, I still wish him the best in his recovery. He seems to have not suffered any complications or activity restrictions and is not hospitalized.

Apparently he saw a doctor at the insistance of his wife after feeling light-headed. The worrisome part is that one in three people who suffer transient ischemic attack (TIA) later suffer an actual stroke. We hope that this will not be the case with Senator Reid.
Latoyia Figueroa

Latoyia Figueroa has been missing from her Philadelphia home for five months. Her remains have been found in Chester, PA, about 13 miles west of Philadelpia.

Her former boyfriend, the father of her unborn baby, Stephen Poaches, has been arrested in the murder. He apparently led police to the body. The police are still responsible for proving beyond a reasonable doubt.

Rest in peace, mother and baby.
A Commenter's Comment

In response to one of my posts on the Fair Tax, Frank posted the following:

The FairTax would create a universal, explicit, and large tax penalty on those unable to buy homes. It would redistribute many billions of dollars upward from renters to homeowners. While homeownership would increase - rational renters will scramble to buy homes under this tax - it will also create a permanent underclass of those unable to buy homes who will pay a steep tax penalty for the privilege of renting the roof over their head. The FairTax would create Two Americas.

Of course, I disagree with Frank and found this on the Fair Tax website, It's a direct copy and paste - I didn't want to have mistakes on my part and I did eliminate portions that did not pertain to real estate and housing (it's a little long, so please bear with me). All emphasis is mine:

The FairTax booms home ownership:

Simple math shows a 71-percent reduction in a homeowner’s mortgage costs. Harvey Abernethy, Realtor®

The FairTax plan is an integrated proposal with many positive features, not the least of which are the advantages that will accrue to residential real estate ownership.

• Pay your entire house payment, both principal and interest, with “pre-tax” dollars.
• Get this benefit without itemizing deductions, which only a small percentage of homeowners do today.
• Save for down payments much faster, without the penalty of taxation.
• Reduce interest rates even lower than they are today.

A FairTax rate of 23 percent, calculated as our current federal tax rates are calculated, would produce the same amount of revenue to the federal government as all the various forms of income and payroll taxes now collected from the productive incomes of individual Americans and American businesses. This fully funds Social Security and Medicare and all other government services at the current funding levels.

Interest rates come down – more.

The FairTax reduces interest rates by approximately two percentage points, the current difference between tax-exempt mortgages and taxable home mortgages, since the interest income on a home mortgage is currently taxed to the lender of the money. A home mortgage that today could be obtained for an interest rate of approximately 6.75% could be re-financed with a new mortgage at a 4.75% interest rate.

The FairTax booms home ownership.

The FairTax proposal honestly detaxes low-wage workers.

Today’s income taxes and tomorrow’s FairTax for Mr. and Mrs. Fair. As an example, Mr. and Mrs. Fair are married, both self-employed, with two children. Their home has a $150,000 mortgage payable over 30 years at 6.75%. When the FairTax becomes law, they can refinance for 4.75%. Mr. Fair is paid on commission as a manufacturer’s representative, and this year made $28,000 after business expenses. Mrs. Fair runs her eBay business from home and made $29,000 after business expenses. They jointly set aside $2,000 in their IRA account. They are the lucky taxpayers because they are two of only 27 percent of all Americans who actually qualify to itemize their income tax deductions. They have calculated their itemized deductions to be $11,637, most of it from their home mortgage interest deduction.

Like all Americans, the only thing that really matters to them is what is left over after taxes to have as their spendable income. Simple math tells the truth. Their federal income tax return would show the following:

Current income / FairTax

Mr. and Mrs. Fair's spendable income analysis tax system system:

Their combined income before taxes $57,000 / $57,000
Less Mr. Fair's Social Security and Medicare taxes $4,018 / $0
Less Mrs. Fair's Social Security and Medicare taxes $4,162 / $0
Less their combined federal income taxes $3,456 / $0
Income after taxes $45,364 / $57,000
Add their universal PCA rebate $0 / $5,575
Their combined spendable income $45,364 / $62,575
Their house payment – current system,
then refinanced $11,674 /$9,390
House payment as a percent of spendable income 25.7% / 15.0%

Simple math shows us that by maintaining our current federal income tax system, Mr. and Mrs. Fair’s house payment is consuming a much larger part of their potential spendable income. When one goes from spending 15 percent to spending 25.7 percent of their spendable income, that is a 71.3-percent increase.

An immediate effect of the FairTax is a $17,211 increase in their spendable income, which is a 37.9-percent increase in the current spendable income. Consumption spending is elective spending; consumption taxing is elective taxing. Under the current federal income tax system, when Mr. and Mrs. Fair spend their spendable income for any goods or services, new or used, they pay with post-tax dollars, except, in their case, their home mortgage interest. Most homeowners do not itemize and therefore must pay their equity and interest with post-tax dollars. Additionally, in all retail purchases, they are paying the cost of the federal income tax system that is imbedded in the price of each product or service produced in America, which inflates those prices by an average 22 percent at the checkout counter. The FairTax eliminates these costs and through natural competition in the market place, prices of these goods and services fall by the amount of those reductions.

Under the Fair Tax, when they elect to spend their spendable income for new goods and services, they pay the FairTax on those purchases. If Mr. and Mrs. Fair did not save any of their income and spent it all on new goods and services, their purchasing power is as follows:

Current income / FairTax

Mr. and Mrs. Fair's purchasing power analysis tax system system:

Their combined spendable income $45,364 / $62,575
Their house payment – current system,
then refinanced $11,674 /$9,390
Spendable income after house payment $33,690 / $53,185
Average income tax costs embedded in products/services 22%
FairTax paid as part of the price of new goods/services 23%
Actual taxes either imbedded or paid as the FairTax $7,412 / $12,233
Spendable income after house payment $33,690 / $53,195
Actual taxes either imbedded or paid as the FairTax $7,412 / $12,233
Purchasing power of spendable income
$26,278 / $40,952

Mr. and Mrs. Fair’s true after-tax purchasing power of their spendable income is increased by $14,674, which is a 55.8-percent increase over their current purchasing power.

This is how the FairTax benefits just one family. There are many more benefits for all Americans. This improvement in Mr. and Mrs. Fair’s personal financial situation occurs only when the FairTax becomes law. And it is merely an example of the many benefits of the FairTax that accrue to you and every other American. Please learn more by visiting I guarantee that you will find resolution to any concern you may have. The goodness of this bill is overwhelming. This bill is not for the benefit of any special interest group. Indeed, the lives of all decent Americans are greatly improved by the changes the FairTax brings.

Me again. This might not exactly address Frank's comments, but I believe that the Fair Tax will allow more people to save money toward homeownership. Interest rates will come down, allowing more people to afford mortgages. I don't believe a tax penalty would be placed on anyone more than there already is. Most people will buy pretty much the same goods that they already do, and would pay a consumption tax on why they buy, not on their income, allowing them to have that extra disposable income to save or to pay toward mortgages.

And Frank, you don't think there are already two America's? Today's "underclass" seems to be anyone who makes less than $90,000. Why did I choose $90,000 as the cut off? Anyone making more than $90K pays no more in SS taxes than the person who makes $90K. It might be an arbitrary figure on my part, but it seems as good a figure as any. I personally think that the "wealthy" are those who pay the highest taxes.

I'm not sure there aren't three America's - the lower income class, the middle class, and the upper, wealthy class. And once again, what could be more fair to everyone than everyone paying the same tax rate?
Cindy Sheehan - My Final Word

As I stated previously, I feel very badly for this woman. She is a mother who lost her son. She's still in the grieving process. I also think there are some mental problems there, but I'm not trained in that field. It's just my opinion.

Cindy has the right to say or think whatever she wants. I do not deny that and will defend her right to think and say what she wants. She is not, however, exempt from other people disagreeing with her and saying it.

She can say anything she wants about George Bush. He's a big boy and doesn't need me to defend him. Heck, I don't agree with him about everything, Border security is a big issue where we are on opposite sides of the fence. He's helping illegal aliens over the fence and I want to push them back. There are others, but this is not the time or place.

She can even express her opinion about foreign policy - ours and other nations. Why she thinks she can influence the UN is beyond me, but she has the right.

Cindy has said America is not worth dying for. Here is where we part company. America is the greatest country in the history of the world. I don't like that we are at war, I don't like that our military personnel are dying. Not in the least. But, there are things that are worth dying for: God, country, and values. You may agree or not. You may have other things you feel are worth dying for. You might call me a flag-waver and whatever else you want. I love waving the Flag. I am many things, but one of the things I am is an American. I get choked up seeing the Flag waving and hearing our anthem. I am unabashedly and unapologically patriotic. I will not call Cindy Sheehan unpatriotic for her words against George Bush or any other person. And I hesitate to call her unpatriotic for saying America is not worth dying for. She has the right to her opinions, even when I think she is wrong.

I'd like Cindy to face a group of Vietnam vets and say America is not worth dying for. I'd like to see her defend her words to WWII and Korean vets. How about Gulf War (I) vets? How about other Gold Star parents? How about the widows and children of military personnel who have died in defence of America during peacekeeping missions in Kosovo? At the Colbart Towers? The Cole? If they didn't think America was worth dying for, why were they in the military? How about those who lost loved ones on September 11th? Are they not worth dying for?

As far as I know, Cindy has only spoken to groups of people who agree with her. Cindy, you have the right to say America isn't worth dying for. You've said it on national television to a biased, leftest media looking for something to report against our administration. Do you have the courage to say America isn't worth dying for to any of the groups I mentioned above? And do you have the courage to hear and accept what they might have to say to you?

Would you say it to Casey?
The Next American Revolution - The Prebate

How does the prebate work?

All valid Social Security cardholders who are U.S. residents receive a monthly prebate equivalent to the FairTax paid on essential goods and services, also known as the poverty level expenditures. The prebate is paid in advance (hence a prebate - not a rebate which is paid after the fact), in equal installments each month. The size of the prebate is determined by the Department of Health & Human Services' poverty level multiplied by the tax rate. This is a well-accepted, long-used poverty-level calculation that includes food, clothing, shelter, transportation, medical care, etc.

Here's the chart so you will see what you will be getting every month:

Image hosted by

Look at the left hand side of the chart to find the number of people in your family. For example, there are two in our family and we are married, so I find the "2", and follow it to the right. I see an annual prebate of $4,402 and a monthly prebate of $367. Add that to the $380 that is deducted from my paycheck in the form of Federal taxes every two weeks ($760) and that's an additional $1,127 of disposable income for us.

With that extra money, I'll be able to make an extra mortgage payment every month, put extra money toward our credit card debt, get both paid off sooner, and still have money to put into a retirement account. Not to mention setting aside money for vacations and dinner out.

One of my questions was, why not just exempt those basic necessities of life in the first place and not fool with a prebate? After thinking about it, I realized that it would leave a loophole for our congresscritters to mess with. And you know as well as I do, that if they have just the teeniest of loopholes they'll manage to drive a Mack truck through it. If food and clothing and housing (for example) were exempted from the start, what would be exempted next? It wouldn't be long before lobbyists got nearly everything exempted and we'd be right back where we started.

Food: I buy groceries for daily meals and my purchases are exempted. Bill Gates has a lavish party to entertain stockholders, VIP's from other corporations and countries, and his lobster, salmon, caviar, and champagne are exempted. Why should Bill, who is a multi-billionaire be exempted for a business dinner (that he is currently able to write off as a business expense anyway)? A family dinner is one thing, but who would know whether his dinner was family or business? His dinner, which would run into the hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to purchase would garner more in taxes than my grocery purchases. Trust me, even when the Fair Tax is passed, we won't be eating lobster, salmon, caviar and champagne. Well, maybe lobster and salmon on the very rare occassion. And I think I can safely say that Joe and Mary Lunchbox won't be eating lobster and salmon every night either. Sure, no exemption hurts the lower and middle class American some, but who is better able to pay those taxes? The wealthy who would be giving those dinners and serving that type of menu. Bill Gates doesn't throw ground beef patties and hot dogs on the grill. Leave the tax on the basic necessities of life and let the wealthy pay the big bucks in taxes.

You can work out the problems with exempting clothing and housing. My readers are smart enough to know that the wealthy don't buy off the rack, they don't shop at Walmart, and they don't buy 1500 square foot houses.

Before you start campaigning for the "little guy" (like you and me) think about who's going to be paying the bigger taxes. The wealthy - and it's usually chump change to them. And, think about who the "wealthy" are. Movie stars, politicians, corporate officers, sports stars, and let's not forget the one class that is usually forgotten, the drug dealers.

The Fair Tax is the one tax plan that makes sure that everyone pays the same amount. And what could be FAIRer than that?.
The Next American Revolution

That's what I am calling tax reform from now on. I honestly can't say how long the interest will keep ramping up (it's tax reform after all, not the most exciting topic in the world!), but it so far shows no signs of waning.

The FairTax Book (see sidebar for links to Amazon and Barnes and Noble) by radio talk show host Neal Boortz and Georgia congressman John Linder debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. It will repeat a second week at #1. Yes, a second week! A book on tax reform of all things. Tax reform is a huge topic right now. And there are still lots of people who have no idea that it's even a topic, much less how huge it is.

I've had a couple of comments that I haven't answered yet. I will, I just have to be sure that I understand what the comment is, and that I respond correctly. As enthusiastic as I am about tax reform in general, and the Fair Tax in particular, there are portions that I don't understand well enough to try to argue...yet.

Anyway, if you haven't read the book, get a copy. If you haven't gotten a copy yet, it might be difficult to find right now. It is in the FOURTH printing (the cover will reflect it's NY Times #1 spot), and is still flying off the shelves.

If you have read the book (or in the process of reading it) and want to know what to do, instructions are in the book. Talk to your friends and relatives. Write (snail and email) and call and/or fax your congresscritters. I understand that they respond best to snail mail, then email, and then phone calls and faxes. Attend meetings or events where the congresscritter will be and ask where they stand. Don't let them off the hook. If they haven't read the book, encourage them to do so. I feel that it's much easier to convert someone who is knowledgeable about a subject, even if they disagree with you, than someone who doesn't understand it and is just against it.

Too many of our congresscritters are sitting on the fence, waiting to see what the Tax Commission recommends. I think that's part of our problem here in Florida. Neither Bill Nelson, our current Democratic senator, nor Katherine Harris, Republican representative from the 13th District (my district, darn it!) in the House, will commit. Not even commit to leaning for or against, much less a specific stand one way or the other. I've written both stating that I cannot and will not vote for a candidate who straddles fences on important issues. They show no backbone or center moral core (meaning they wait to see how the wind blows before deciding what their public opinion is) and I can't and won't vote for someone who does that.

The problem with Nelson and Harris is that Nelson is up for re-election in 2006 and Harris has announced (I think) her bid for his seat. I don't really care for either one, so I'm hoping someone else throws their hat in the ring and announces support for the Fair Tax. It's pretty much a deal maker or breaker for me.

Anyway, get yourself educated and get on the bandwagon! We overthrew England over taxes (okay, there were other issues, but taxes were a big part of it). We're primed for another revolution, and King IRS is in the crosshairs.

The End of the IRS?

I'm watching Fox News right now, specifically Greta Van Susteren. Before going to commercial, Greta gave a tease about an upcoming segment, which you have probably guessed from the title of this post, about the end of the IRS. I'm very interested in just what this segment is all about. I'm sort of surprised that Greta is focusing on something other than Natalee Holloway, the Alabama teen missing in Aruba. I haven't watched much of Greta over the last couple of months, because I am tired of Natalee every night with nothing really new to report. Don't get me wrong, I'm as concerned about this young woman as any one else is, except those personally involved, but I'd like to hear something new, not a rehashing of the same old thing.

Ah....Congressman John Linder is the guest! And, The FairTax Book will be #1 on the NY Times bestseller list for a second week! yeah! I'm sort of live blogging this since it's on right now. I will be sending email to Greta after thanking her for the segment. Linder just said that the Tax Commision said that the Fair Tax is the only tax plan that totally untaxes everyone. He also mentioned that every household will receive a check (the prebate Fair Taxers talk about) to cover the taxes on the basic necessities of life up to the poverty level. It that doesn't sound like much, remember that in addition to the prebate, every wage earner will take home what they are making now, PLUS what is currently withheld as payroll taxes (withholding, Social Security and Medicare). It will make a difference to every American wage earner. In our house, that means approximately $1000 "extra" each and every payday.

Linder personally gave President Bush a copy of the FairTax Book (while on Air Force One)! Bush promised to read it. Linder said that everyone should realize a 50% increase in their take-home pay. I just realized that my Federal taxes are about 50% of my take-home pay. Don't know why I didn't realize that before. I've considered all the numbers, but hadn't thought of that percentage. Interesting!

Not a long segment, but Congressman Linder got his points across very nicely.

Women Over 50
By Andy Rooney - CBS 60 Minutes.

As I grow in age, I value women who are over 50 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 50 will not lay next to you in bed and ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 50 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do. And, it's usually something more interesting.

A woman over 50 knows herself well enough to be assured in who she is, what she is, what she wants and from whom. Few women past the age of 50 give a damn what you might think about her or what she's doing.

Women over 50 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

A woman over 50 has the self-assurance to introduce you to her women friends. A younger woman with a man will often ignore even her best friend because she doesn't trust the guy with other women.

Women over 50 couldn't care less if you're attracted to her friends because she knows her friends won't betray her.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 50. They always know.

A woman over 50 looks good wearing bright red lipstick. This is not true of younger women or drag queens.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one!

You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 50 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed hot woman of 50+, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 18-year-old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free. "Here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage, why?

Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire Pig, just to get little sausage.

Did Andy Rooney really author this? I don't know, but it certainly sounds like him. And, there is a lot of truth in this, don't ya know?

Cindy Sheehan

I wasn't going to mention this woman and her crusade, but I've changed my mind. She has the absolute right to think and say what she wants, but so do I.

I think someone has gotten to her. My reason? After her son was killed, she had an interview with President Bush. Afterwards, she had nothing but praise for him. Now, she has turned 180 degrees and says the meeting was unsatisfactory. She's calling for another interview where she wants to ask him why the sons are dying. She also wants to know why, if the war is such a noble cause, his own daughters aren't in Iraq. And, she is calling for Israel to be given to the Palestinians.

I feel very badly for her. And I think she's lost her grip on mental stability. Perhaps the grief of losing her son sent her over the edge, is perhaps the reason for the breakup of her marriage. Yes, her husband has filed for divorce. Apparently, they have been separated since June. She claims the breakup is because of Casey's death - they couldn't handle it as a couple. The breakup might indeed be because of his death. The cause might also be her absorption in Casey's death and her new political life.

She is not over the grief of losing a son. Not that that is a grief she will ever totally "get over." What I mean is, she hasn't dealt with it. She's angry and she wants to blame someone for his death. A very normal response. Cindy is grieving and can't blame Casey for his death, so she's blaming the person at the top, the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

I think others are using her grief for their own purposes and manipulating her for their own ends. Calling for the end of the war in Iraq I could understand, but giving Israel to Palestine has nothing to do with the issue at hand. Why does she think that because she lost a son in Iraq that she has the right to set foreign policy? Not just for the US, but for the UN and the rest of the world.

Cindy has forgotten who is responsible for her son being in Iraq and that is Casey himself. We have a volunteer military. No one forced him to join the military. I believe he was a mechanic, in any case he had a job that did not necessarily put him in jeopardy. As I understand, he was killed trying to help another soldier. He made the greatest sacrifice one person can make for another - he gave his life.

Why aren't the Bush daughters in Iraq? For the same reason Casey was. We have a volunteer military. They haven't volunteered, and probably wouldn't be allowed to volunteer. Can you imagine what would happen if either of them were taken prisoner?

Over the last year or so, I've begun to question our reasons for going into Iraq. But, no matter the reasons, we are there and we have to finish the job. If we don't, the lives that have been lost will have been lost for nothing. Our military freed 25 million Iraqi's from tyranny. They no longer have to worry about being put into shredders. They don't have to worry about their wives and daughters ending up in rape rooms. They don't have to worry whether their husbands and sons will return from school or work or disappear into a prison or a mass grave.

I hate the thought of war. I hate that our nation's sons and daughters may die in another country. I can't remember who said it, but War is Hell (Patton?). No doubt about it. But freedom isn't something that can be negotiated or appeased into existance. Those who want freedom have to fight for it. Sometimes they have to be freed before they can fight for it. Compromise and appeasment are two of the things that led to WWII. Most of Europe fell to Hitler because of compromise and appeasment.

My questions about our reasons for being in Iraq stated, I admire that so many of our sons and daughters are willing to voluntarily enter the armed forces so that our country can be free. I am proud of America and her desire to see that the freedoms we enjoy are spread to other countries. I am proud our military freeing Afghanistan and Iraq from tyranny.

I wish that I could say that I served my time in the military. I can't. I didn't. Not everyone is suited for military life and at that time in my life, I wasn't. I can't tell you how much admiration and pride I have for those who choose to take that step. I know that there are many reasons for entering the military, education being one of the most prominent reasons. Securing our country is not necessarily first on the list and securing other countries is even further down the list. But everyone entering the military knows that they may, at some time, have to go to war in another country. Those who say they didn't know are fooling themselves. They are either stupid or not taking responsibility for their actions. Casey Sheehan knew that he could go to Iraq and was still willing to enter the military.

Am I blaming Casey for his death? No, absolutely not. Who do I blame? The Iraqi insurgents, the terrorists, whatever you want to call them, who caused his death. You can even go back as far as Saddam for blame. It makes as much sense to me to blame Saddam as it does to blame Bush. But, it doesn't really matter. He's gone and we should remember him and the others who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.
