Developing an exercise routine at a very early age is still strongly recommended as it also helps the aging process overall to be more graceful.

South Carolina Lawmaker Calls For A Hate Crime Bill

 

South Carolina, which saw the shooting of nine people in a historical Black Church last week, is one of only five states that don’t have hate crime legislation. One lawmaker wants to change that. Rep. Wendell Gillard has told Buzzfeed News that he wants to change this sooner rather than later. Gillard has said that after nine people were killed in a Charleston church his priority is to introduce a hate crime bill when State Legislatures convenes for the next session in January 2016.

Gillard has now decided that the timeline should be moved up and is now asking that the legislature extend its current session so that he can introduce the new bill. Gillard represents the district where the shooting took place. If the council agrees, Gillard would need a two-thirds majority vote to set a date for discussion of the bill and for a vote. Click here for more information.

According to Paul Mathieson, Rep. Gillard has said that his bill would be “plain and simple”, modeled after similar legislation in other states. It would call for an enhanced penalties for crimes motivated by hate. A hate crime is defined as one that is motivated by prejudice against a person or persons due to race, sexual orientation, gender, national origin or religion. According to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch the church shooting meets the definition of a hate crime, and the Department of Justice has opened a federal investigation into the shooting.

Proposed Ohio State Budget Includes Specialty Tax Breaks For Golf Courses

 

A proposed new two year state budget awaiting final approval by the Ohio Legislature has generated lobbying efforts on both sides concerning provisions that would extend favorable property tax treatment to golf courses. The controversy centers around how county tax auditors should appraise golf courses.

State Senator Bill Seitz, a Republican from Cincinnati, proposed an amendment favored by the Ohio Golf Course Owners Association. It would require that golf course owners be taxed based on the income generated by the golf course, and not using any other methods, such as recent sales price comparisons for similar property or valuation based on the highest potential use. Senator Seitz recently noted: “The golf courses have all fallen on hard times, in part because the cities own golf courses and pay no taxes.”

The amendment is opposed by an association of county auditors. They argue that the new requirement constitutes a “specialty tax” that favors a particular industry stated Gianfrancesco Genoso. Several auditors hope lawmakers will eliminate the amendment before passing the final budget bill on June 30th.

Delaware County Auditor George Kaitsa said that income valuations tend to produce the lowest tax revenue results. Some 24 public and private golf courses operate in his county.

Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo complained:”Golf courses would be the only property where the legislature is dictating the manner in which the valuations are determined. That’s dangerous, and it’s not equitable.”

The Richest of the Rich Are Paying the Lowest of the Low in Taxes

The wealth distribution gap in America is a serious problem, perhaps the most important political issue of our times. It affects every American who is currently struggling to put food on the table and keep their lights on. Yet, not many people seem to notice or care that 1 percent of our nation’s population hold 99 percent of the country’s entire wealth. Kind of makes me feel like a a tiny fish scrounging at the bottom of the ocean for anything scraps left over from the sharks who are circling above.

Not only do the top one percent hold most of the nation’s wealth, they also pay the least amount of taxes. Sam Tabar doesn’t know how that works exactly. While surely the richest people in America pay millions of dollars worth of taxes every year, it only adds up to a small percentage of what they are actually making, which on average is about $64 million per year. An amount that would keep most American families living well for many generations to come.

While regular Americans must hand over a significant chunk of their paycheck every time they receive one, the top earners only have to part with a the loose change they find in their sofas. The best of the best earners, the top .0001 percent, were only taxed at a rate of 17.6 percent in 2012. Numbers that should make every hard working American ask some hard questions of their country’s economy.

Laverne Cox Comments On Caitlyn Jenner’s Transformation

Laverne Cox is well known as a transgender person, and she has helped to break the mold where prejudice is concerned. Many do not want to see transgender persons having the same equal freedoms as those who are choosing to stay the same sex that they were born. Laverne Cox. Laverne has come out in support of Caitlyn Jenner, who was formally Bruce Jenner. Laverne states that even though Caitlyn Jenner is absolutely beautiful, her beauty is not the only thing that people should notice.

The fact that Bruce Jenner was able to transform into Caitlyn Jenner, and have many people accept the transformation, that in itself is a victory. Laverne herself has fought very hard to become recognized as a woman, even though she was born as a man. A few who have done FreedomPop review points this out. Prejudice is all over the world, not just in the United States, so no matter where they go, they may be subject to hate. Laverne realizes that not everyone will accept her lifestyle or Caitlyn’s lifestyle, but she is very proud of Caitlyn for her bravery.

Laverne recently did a spread where she was naked in a magazine, and the magazine shoot was done for charity. Many objected to the fact that a man who transformed into a woman was posing nude for the magazines, but as previously stated, there will be haters. Laverne couldn’t be more proud of Caitlyn, and she compares Caitlyn’s beauty to that of Jessica Lange, who is a famous movie star.

The Governor Of Louisiana Issues Executive Order To Put The Religious Freedom Act In Place

Governor Bobby Jindal Order Goes Against The Legislators Vote To Reject The Act

Here we go again. Another governor wants to push his bigoted ideas on the voters. Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana went out of his way to issue an executive order than puts the Religious Freedom Act on the state books for 60 days.Jindal is one of the governors that believes same-sex marriages break God’s law.

Keith Mann (chicagobooth.edu) has found that the order that Jindal put in place is an amended version of the original bill, but the message is the same. Jindal says religious liberty is trumps equal rights. In June, the Supreme Court will have something to say about that message. The way it looks now, Jindal won’t be happy when he hears what the Supreme Court says about same-sex marriages.

Jindal’s order gives businesses the right to discriminate against the LGBT community. The governor’s personal and religious beliefs are influencing his political decision making, and that is dangerous for him and his constituents.

Louisiana will feel the pressure that Indiana felt recently when they passed the Religious Freedom Act. The state will lose money, and a lot of friends around the country that love the “Big Easy for being easy and free.”

Scott Walker Heads to Beltway to Build Support for His Looming Campaign

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will spend Tuesday inside the Beltway, an area he previously said is encompassed about by reality. Obviously, the implication is that Washington D.C. is itself out of touch with mainstream America. Still, the city is the power base for both parties and as such, he will need to court GOP support in the city to fund his looming presidential campaign. Walker has the support of fellow Wisconsinite Paul Ryan, the GOP’s 2008 vice-presidential nominee. Sam Tabar has learned that Ryan will be presenting the governor to a group of as many as four score Republican lawmakers in the morning.

By the afternoon, Walker, the son of a preacher, will be schmoozing with the pro-life groups Concerned Women for America (CWA) and Susan B. Anthony List. Despite the governor’s high profile battles with big labor unions and the Democrat Party apparatus, some conservatives are unfamiliar with him. The event will allow them to see his human side which one member of the CWA said was essential to decide whether to support him. The governor will also meet with trade lobbyists and K street powerbrokers as well.

Critics of Walker are saying he spends too little time in his home state managing affairs. It is the reality of time constraints that anyone holding a current office faces as they mount a presidential election regardless of party affiliation. Still, Walker has many enemies in Wisconsin over his successful curtailing of public sector collective bargaining rights.
