Goodbye Politics, Enter Cannabis, Good Health and Happiness...

 Today is a very good day at Rational Nation USA. After many months of going back and forth we are happy to announce this weblog will be closed to any and all political content. Period.

While both political parties share in the constant and pervasive negativity the Republican party is responsible for the lion's share of negativity. When 30% of the population can suck the oxygen out of a room there is something deeply wrong with it. I leave it to each of  you to decide which side you are on.

This weblog begin 12 years ago as a fiscally conservative Randian friendly weblog with a socially libertarian slant. Posts and discussions were to focus on reducing and controlling the national debt and achieving annual balanced budgets, alongside the virtues of Classical Liberalism  modified to meet 21 century realities. Today, after 12 years this weblog has ceased to serve that purpose.

The Republican party under the leadership of Mitch McConnell has become nothing but a destructive and dangerously divisive force in America. Donald J. Trump, America's most inept as well as undemacratic president in recent modern politics was merely the crowning accomplishment of the misguided and dishonest Republican party. America suffered. It will likely continue to suffer the effects for years to come.

Politics and government are dead to this weblog. This being the last post allow any comments relative to politics.

We are not however closing down. Focus going forward will be limited to cannabis (its many beneficial medical uses), health, fitness, and happiness. It will be an open forum for users and advocates to openly talk about their personal experiences and share helpful information that may help others considering cannabis  use as an alternative to big Parma to improve health.

AS the proprietor of this weblog I will share personal exeriences in the many ways cannabis has improved my life and health since I begin using daily for medicinal purposes. AS well I will post from time to tine information that may be helpful. Commenters please leave judgement of others at the door. If you don't comment will not be posted,

Regular posting will begin again soon after some minor modifications behind the curtains. Have a great weekend and healthy and happy!

President Biden Certainly Gets It Right Again...

 

Biden Will Seek Tax Increase on Rich to Fund Child Care and Education




President Biden is set to detail the full proposal, which will set up a clash with Republicans, next week.
Al Drago for The New York Times


WASHINGTON President Biden will seek new taxes on the rich, including a near doubling of the capital gains tax for people earning more than $1 million a year, to pay for the next phase in his $4 trillion plan to reshape the American economy.

Mr. Biden will also propose raising the top marginal income tax rate to 39.6 percent from 37 percent, the level it was cut to by President Donald J. Trump’s tax overhaul in 2017. The proposals are in line with Mr. Biden’s campaign promises to raise taxes on the wealthy but not on households earning less than $400,000.

The president will lay out the full proposal, which he calls the American Family Plan, next week. It will include about $1.5 trillion in new spending and tax credits meant to fight poverty, reduce child care costs for families, make prekindergarten and community college free to all, and establish a national paid leave program, according to people familiar with the proposal. It is not yet final and could change before next week.

The plan will not include an up to $700 billion effort to expand health coverage or reduce government spending on prescription drugs. Officials have decided to instead pursue health care as a separate initiative, a move that sidesteps a fight among liberals on Capitol Hill but that risks upsetting some progressive groups.

SKIP

The plan will set up a clash with Republicans and test how far Democrats in Congress want to go to rebalance an economy that has disproportionately benefited high-income Americans.

As intelligent proposal full of common sense the Trumpublicans will absolutely give it the big middle finger, Caring only about amassing wealth in the hands of the few Trumpublicans could not care one iota about the average American working family or the education of your childre3en.
