Families devastated by murder suicides

Another day in America, more violence and bodybags pile up.  More middle aged white males like Steve Sailer burdened with depression, hopelessness, and family distress finally end their family line in murder suicide cases.  And the minorities in America are supposed to rely on white families like these to provide moral guidance on building stronger families and a better society?

Texas man shoots estranged wife, then himself, at daughter’s 16th birthday

January 21, 2013 - A Texas girl's sixteenth birthday collapsed into a horror show when her father shot her mother and then killed himself, authorities said.

Kelly Suckla, 43, shot his estranged wife Kristi, 44, at the front door of her parents' home in Grapevine, outside Dallas, after the two began arguing during a party for their daughter's birthday, local TV station WFAA reported.

Suckla then stepped into his in-laws' front yard, where he turned the pistol onto himself.

Authorities said Kristi died some 40 minutes later at Baylor Regional Medical Center.

The daughter, who was not named, her 21-year-old brother, and Kristi Suckla's parents were in the house when the deranged dad pulled the trigger. They were not hurt.

Hans Walters Murder-Suicide: Las Vegas Police Officer Allegedly Shot Family, Burned Home, Killed Self

Nevada police said that Lt. Hans Walters, a 20-year veteran of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, killed his family and set fire to his home before fatally shooting himself on Jan. 21.

A standoff at Walters' Boulder City, Nev., home occurred Monday, after an unidentified male caller claimed to a 911 dispatcher that he had killed his wife and child, set his house aflame and would "injure any officer that attempted to come to the scene."

Units from multiple departments responded, including a Las Vegas SWAT team. Officers reportedly encountered Walters in front of his house with a handgun. According to CNN, Walters ignored commands from police to drop his weapon and, instead, returned to the burning house.

Authorities believe the off-duty lieutenant shot himself after he entered the house.

The Clark County Coroner's Office confirmed Tuesday that Walter's 46-year-old wife, Kathryn, and 5-year-old son, Maximilian, each died of a gunshot wound to the head.

President Obama's second inauguration

January 20 marks the official start of President Obama's second term as President of the United States.  After winning the election last November, Obama has certainly changed for the better as he starts his second term and defines a legacy of leadership and accomplishments, rather than the weak and stupid image that marred him during his first term.

Obama did a far better job resolving the fiscal cliff of 2012.  It had some shortcomings, but he finally removed the last remaining disastrous failure of the Bush legacy, the tax cuts for the rich.  Now we can put the economic catastrophe behind us and move forward to fix the economy.

Obama is finally showing he is the boss and not the House GOP.  Whether it is dealing with the budget and spending, gun control, or social issues, Obama is finally acting like President Obama and showing leadership, ideas, and direction to move forward.

GOP and Tea Party sink to new lows in polls

Conservatism is a failed ideology that cannot survive on its own.  Conservatism never flourishes, it only withers away into failure.  A new Congress is now in place since January 3, 2013, minus 8 House and 2 Senate Republicans, and the GOP and Tea Party continue to sink to new lows in popularity and in the polls.  The only area where Republicans succeed is finding new ways to sink to new lows, just when it seems like they hit rock bottom and can't sink any lower.  Yet, Republicans manage to do so.

The GOP Image Is Near-Rock Bottom After The Fiscal Cliff Negotiations

The Republican image has taken a big hit from the fiscal cliff negotiations as both parties prepare for the next several rounds of fiscal talks in the coming months.

Two polls released in the past day show that even Republicans do not approve of the way the party handled the fiscal cliff negotiations.

An ABC/Washington Post poll found that just 31 percent approved of Boehner's handling of the fiscal cliff, compared with 52 percent that disapproved. Among his own party, Boehner's approval-to-disapproval split stood at a dreadful 38-49.

The findings were similar in a Pew Research Center survey. The poll found that voters gave abysmal marks to Republican leaders for their part in the talks. Only 19 percent of respondents approved of the way Republicans handled the negotiations, compared with 66 percent who disapproved. And the split among Republicans was 40-45.

Tea Party Hits Record Level Of Unpopularity In Public Opinion Poll

The Tea Party is more unpopular than ever before, according to a Rasmussen poll released Monday, with just three in 10 voters holding favorable views of the movement. Half of respondents said they view the party unfavorably.

Those numbers represent a considerable dive in support since the Tea Party's heyday in 2009, when a majority of voters rated it favorably.

Many of the Senate challengers with Tea Party backing were defeated in 2012, and the movement suffered another PR blow after a falling out among the leadership of the Tea Party group FreedomWorks.

Although most members of the House's Tea Party Caucus were reelected in November, the group had some high-profile losses, including the defeats of former Reps. Joe Walsh and Allen West. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus, barely retained her seat.

The movement is now widely seen by the public as declining, according to the Rasmussen poll -- 56 percent of voters said the Tea Party became less influential over the past year, and just 8 percent said they identified as part of the Tea Party movement.

Fiscal Cliff 2012, Conclusion

Finally, the Senate, the House, and the President came to an agreement for the fiscal cliff and passed a somewhat reasonable tax bill that will take effect immediately in 2013.  Tax rates will only rise for the highest tax bracket ($400K single/$450K married), rather than the highest two tax brackets (starting at $200K single/$250K married) Obama originally sought.  Read this for the details of the tax bill that passed.

So what is my analysis and grade for President Obama in the fiscal cliff 2012 deal?  I give him a grade of B-

B- is a passing and satisfactory grade, but somewhat disappointing.  It's much better than the grade of "F" back in December 2010.  Here are the strengths and weaknesses of Obama this time around.

Obama proved he and the Democrats had the upper hand over the Republicans.  The House Republicans never had anything to offer, just trying to keep tax rates low and loopholes active for the rich.  They tried to bluff, but Obama called the bluff.  Obama left John Boehner totally weakened and ineffictive when the House couldn't create a bill, so the Democratic Senate created the bill that passed.

The wealthiest one percent of Americans making over $400,000 annually are finally paying their fair share and many loopholes are coming to an end.

There are a number of issues with the tax bill that passed.  First, tax revenue is insufficient to reduce the debt.  The failure to raise taxes on incomes starting at $200,000 will still increase the deficit, although by a much smaller amount than in 2012.  Congress can reduce spending, but we are only looking at a zero sum balance at best, that is the deficit will not increase or decrease. 

Second, the $200,000 to $400,000 income range is considered rich that can be taxed, but is not being taxed.  Someone who makes $300,000 income is rich; just ask any middle class American making less than $50,000 income.  More lost revenue and increasing (though at a smaller degree) deficits.

Third, Obama was shortchanged in the inheritance tax.  Obama sought an inheritance tax of 45% with the first $3.5 million exempt; instead 40% with the first $5.0 million exempt was passed.  The dividend tax rate is questionable.  More lost revenue for a staggering deficit.

The biggest mistake Obama made was that he allowed the tax bill to be permanent.  If a few years down the road we are finding the deficit is still increasing and budget shortfalls continue, it will be extremely difficult to raise taxes, particularly on the upper (but not filthy rich) range of $200K to $400K.

A better tax bill would have been to make the tax rates temporarily active for perhaps two years.  If the tax bill were to expire on December 31, 2014, then the President and Congress can review the effectiveness of the tax bill and make any necessary changes.  If they don't agree by the end of 2014, then let tax rates revert back to the Clinton era.  If Obama chose this approach, I would give him at least a grade of at least a B+.

It looks like the President and Congress were tired from the long days and nights of the fiscal cliff situation, so they were just eager to get something reasonable done.  We'll have more revenue come in and the deficit will grow at a considerably slower pace, but there will still be budget conflicts, shortfalls, and deficits ahead.  Not a major catastrophe as we were heading with the Bush economics, but still some conflicts.
