I think's it's completely doable. Just need a really high income from working a job or a lot of short term capital gains from say trading and just use the Standard Deduction, and then State Income Tax and County piggyback income tax gets you there. Start adding in sales taxes and gas taxes and bridge and tunnel fees. There are all kinds of cases that can come into play here.

HHS Sebelius Forced to Admit Total Constitutional Ignorance of Health Mandate Legal Issues
By: P.J. Gladnick | April 29, 2012 | 15:01


Get me outta here! I'm being forced in a most humiliating manner to reveal to all the world my profound ignorance of basic constitutional issues.

Something like that thought must have been rolling around inside the mind of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius while she completely choked under questioning about these legal issues by South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy. Even if you disagree profoundly with Sebelius you almost have to feel embarrassed by her pathetic performance last week at the House Education and Workforce Committee hearing. Fortunately for Sebelius her confessions of ignorance were completely ignored by the Mainstream Media but the video (and below the fold) lives on for all eternity to serve as a testament to liberal ignorance and arrogance.

Unlike Obama, Romney took office during an economic uptick. Massachusetts had a net job growth of 1.4 percent under Romney. However, that was far slower growth than the national average of 5.3 percent. As Romney’s opponents have frequently, and correctly, noted, Massachusetts ranked 47th in job growth over the entirety of Romney’s term. The only states that did worse: Louisiana, Michigan and Ohio.

American Jews should listen to the Israelis when it comes to support for Obama

Rick Moran


Barack Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008. Recent polls show he won't get that percentage -- a recent survey shows the president getting 62% of the Jewish vote -- but he will still receive the lion's share of the vote from Jewish Americans.

Considering his policies toward Israel, it's hard to figure out what that is. One reason is that most liberal Jews place very little weight on US policy toward Israel when it comes to voting. Also, for many in the Jewish community, social issues are more important.

But Jews in Israel have a decidedly different view of the president - for obvious reasons as Jonathan Tobin explains:

But even as American Jews argue about Obama's attitude toward Israel, the intended objects of the supposed solicitude continue to hold starkly different views about him.

A new Smith Research poll sponsored by the Jerusalem Post shows that although perceptions of Obama in Israel have improved in the last year, most Israelis don't consider him much of a friend. The survey showed that 36 percent of Israelis believe Obama is neutral in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians with 24 percent seeing him as pro-Palestinian and an equal number perceiving him as pro-Israel while 16 percent expressed no opinion. These numbers make one wonder what it is that the three quarters of Israelis who don't see him as being in favor of their country know that the majority of American Jews who think he is pro-Israel haven't figured out.

The contrast between Israeli public opinion of the president and the views of American Jews is all the more startling when one realizes that these dismal numbers are actually a vast improvement for Obama over past polls conducted by the same firm. In the summer of 2009 after the first fight picked by the president with Israel and his Cairo speech to the Arab world in which he equated the plight of the Palestinians with the Holocaust, only 6 percent of Israelis saw him as their ally while 50 percent saw him as pro-Palestinian. Last year after his ambush of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in which he expressed support for the 1967 borders being the starting point for future Middle East negotiations, only 12 percent of Israelis saw him as pro-Israel.

It's surveys like this that give the lie to the Mearsham thesis of American Jews doing the bidding of the Likud party in America. Jewish voters, like any other voter, place more weight on bread and butter economic issues than US policy toward the homeland of their faith. But Tobin wonders if American Jews could only see Obama through the eyes of Israelis, they would somehow change their minds about him.

I think that notion short changes the intelligence of the Jewish voter here. Many American Jews have relatives in Israel and have visited the Jewish state. I'm pretty sure they've gotten an earful about Obama from their friends and relatives.There's also the fact that most American Jews are well informed and hold no illusions about how popular Obama is in Israel. For the J-Street crowd, Obama's pro-Palestinian tilt is welcome to some degree. They want pressure placed on the right in Israel by the US and Obama has done just that - clumsily, naively, but pressure nonetheless.

All told, those Jewish voters who place more weight on how the US-Israeli relationship is doing than on some other issues will probably support Romney. Obama's majority might fall from 3/4 to 2/3 of the Jewish vote if that happens, which may reduce his majorities in some states and will help in states like Florida and New Jersey.

But Obama's problematic relations with the Jewish state will not alter the Jewish vote in America significantly.

Friday night news dump: Obama bypasses Congress, funds Palestinian Authority
Hot Air ^ | April 28, 2012 | Ed Morrissey
Isn’t it funny what you can find out on Friday evening about what our executive branch does? For instance, Agence France-Presse reported last night that Barack Obama bypassed Congress to send $192 million to the Palestinian Authority, claiming that national security required the US to put money into Mahmoud Abbas’ pocket:
President Barack Obama has signed a waiver to remove curbs on funding to the Palestinian Authority, declaring the aid to be “important to the security interests of the United States.” A $192 million aid package was frozen by the US Congress after the Palestinians moved to gain statehood at the United Nations last September. But in a memo sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, published by the White House, the president said it was appropriate to release funds to the authority, which administers the West Bank and Gaza Strip. In signing the waiver, Obama instructed Clinton to inform Congress of the move, on the grounds that “waiving such prohibition is important to the national security interests of the United States.”

Congress deliberately froze those funds, and not just because of the statehood demand through UNESCO. Hamas, a terrorist organization, reconciled with Fatah and has rejoined the PA, which means we’re putting almost $200 million into the hands of a terrorist organization. The language of the Palestinian Accountability Act could not be clearer: “[N]o funds available to any United States Government department or agency … may be obligated or expended with respect to providing funds to the Palestinian Authority.” Obama literally waived that statutory language off yesterday afternoon.

What, exactly, do you not like about Romney? He is a pretty reasonable individual. And he certainly has a track record of success, unlike Obama, who even after 3.5 years as president, can't really point to any significant accomplishment.
