National Parks and Related Tourism Income Suffer from Government Shutdown

Grand Canyon reopens in deal on nat’l parks around nation between federal, state officials - The Washington Post

Historical Income Tax Revenues and the Federal Debt of the Government: Which Presidential Administrations Created that Debt and What are the True Facts?

Who created the federal debt?
Let us look at the tax and debt stats.

The answer is: mostly Republican Presidents whose administrations populistically reduced taxes, thus pulling the wool over the eyes of their gullible constituents, as their administrations then financed the federal government during their eras by borrowing money -- thus raising the debt.

Indeed, under tax-shy Ronald Reagan, federal debt TRIPLED, more than under any other U.S. President. It is a pea and shell game in which the voters are conned.

The following chart shows tax facts about the historical development of U.S. individual and corporation income taxes and the development of federal debt.

The chart shows that federal government spending and the federal debt have been set up as straw men to justify the existence of extremist factions such as the Tea Party of the Republican Party, even though that debt has spiraled upward because of the tax policies of recent Republican Presidents, who increased expenditures and borrowing for things like wars, but reduced tax income, thus necessarily raising the debt.

Individual and corporation income taxes in the United States are currently at RECORD LOW levels as compared to their historical highs and as compared to where they should be.

In fact, income taxes are way too low for our technology-based day and age, quite apart from the historical perspective. You can't be the world's dominant power on less and less taxes, not in our modern world.

That is why there is a federal debt.
Americans want everything,
but are unwilling to pay for it.
That does not work and long-term is a recipe for disaster.

The tax facts are so clear and unequivocal that anyone who is screaming about federal spending, too much taxation and the boogie man of the debt ceiling should have his or her head examined. The hype has nothing do with the actual reality.

The problem of the Obama administration is that the country is laboring under record low taxation and is still fighting wars around the world and playing the big guy on the block, but its citizens are unwilling to pay for it.

Reduction of federal spending is not the solution.
Capping the debt ceiling is not the solution.

The only solution is to get federal taxation back up to sane levels to properly finance the federal government in an America on the wane because of idiotic tax policy by the Republican Party, whose Presidents got the country into the mess to begin with by unnecessarily dropping taxes while still financing the federal government as if nothing had happened, and thus leading to a nation of rampant inequality of wealth and income and huge federal debt.

Only a radical solution can help, and the Tea Party, 180° wrong in their tax policy, is not it.

You have to start taxing individuals and corporations again at sane rates. If that is not done, civil disorder and a national collapse are just around the corner and then all the money in the world that the greedy in the USA have collected will not help them.

That is why revolutions begin, because of the greed of the upper financial classes who can never get enough, leaving in their dust the mass of lower classes who ultimately rise up, with disastrous results for the nation.

Week 7 2013 College Football FBS Game Prediction RESULTS

Week 7 2013 College Football FBS Game Prediction RESULTS by SportPundit 

.... updated as scores come in ....

Our stats for the season after Week 6 were 290-78 (79%) in calling the winner and 189-141-4 (57%) against the spread.

Below are our College Football Prediction RESULTS for Week 7 2013 relying on YPPSYS, our Yards Per Play System and our FBS Ratings and Rankings of all 125 Teams after Week 6 of the 2013 Season.

Skip the indented material if you are already familiar with it. 
What makes a good prognosticator? Confidence and/or Accuracy?
And how about keeping all those conference changes straight?
Caveat emptor (Buyer beware): We make this material available in good fun out of interest for the sport of college football. Please do not rely on our material to place bets or wagers of any kind. No one knows the exact outcome of a game or a season before it is played and that is what makes it so interesting. We disclaim any and all liability for the consequences of anyone relying in any way upon our postings, analysis, links or reasoning - for which we make no warranty of accuracy. May the best team win
YPPSYS means "yards per play system", as that is our main ranking component, based primarily on stats at, but we also use schedule difficulty and conference rankings as based on calculations e.g. at Massey Ratings. At YPPSYS, we regard a difference of one rating point to be worth about 7 points on the scoreboard, a calculation, of course, that is not absolute, given home field advantages, etc. We calculate the home field advantage at an average of about 3 points.
The betting lines ("odds" or "spread") used here were taken from the opening line at the College Football Prediction Tracker as of Monday, October 7, 2013, 10:30 AM, or if not found there then, from the opening lines at MIssing odds were added later as the opening line for each game.

Rutgers at Louisville
The Cardinals were favored over the Scarlet Knights by 17 points.
Our call: 40-21 for Louisville.
Result: The Cardinals beat Rutgers 24-10 as Louisville outgained the Scarlet Knights convincingly 461 to 240 yards.
This week we are 1-0 in calling the winner and 0-1 against the spread. 

San Diego State at Air Force
The Aztecs were favored over the Falcons by 5 points.
Our call: 31-24 for San Diego State.
Result: The Aztecs outgained the Falcons 463 to 319 yards in winning 27-20.
This week we are 2-0 in calling the winner and 1-1 against the spread. 

Arizona at USC
The Trojans were favored over the Wildcats by 6 points.
Our call: 28-23 for Southern Cal.
Result: The Trojans won 38-31 in their first game under interim head coach Ed Orgeron, formerly a head coach at Ole Miss, as the team "had fun". That's the key: top talent, top coaching, be disciplined but have fun .... it's a sport.
This week we are 3-0 in calling the winner and 1-2 against the spread. 

Friday, October 11, 2013

Temple at Cincinnati
The Bearcats were favored over the Owls by 19 points.
Our call: 37-21 for Cincinnati.
Result: The Bearcats beat the Owls 38-20, as Brendon Kay completed 31 of 37 passes for 270 yards and 2 TDs. Cincinnati had otherwise had a tough month due to a heartbreaking tragedy. By the way, we can't remember four opening games of the week where the actual scores were so close to the spread and also to our own call. Just a matter of a point here, a point there. It won't stay that way, you can be sure.

Our call: 31-30 for Navy.
Result: The

Western Carolina at Auburn
The Tigers are favored over the Catamounts by 43.5 points.
Our call: 52-10 for Auburn.
Here, just for your info, is how we calculated our call. The Catamounts lost to Middle Tennessee by 21 points 45-24, i.e. 3 TDs, and to Virginia Tech by  42 points 45-3, i.e. 6 TDs, which fits "perfectly" into our rating system, which after the 6th week rates the Hokies at -0.3 rating points and the Blue Raiders at -3.3 points. Since 1 rating point in our system equals 7 points, we can rate Western Carolina at -6.3 points points based on those two scores. Since we rate Auburn at -0.7 rating points, this makes them 5.6 rating points better than the Catamounts, and 5.6 x 7 = 39 scoreboard points plus the ca. 3-point home field advantage makes 42. The Auburn defense is not as good as that of Virginia Tech, so more points will arguably be scored here than in that game by Western Carolina. As more points are scored by both teams, it becomes more and more difficult for the winning team to beat large spreads, so we call the game by 42 points and thus side here with Western Carolina on the spread. Whether it turns out that way or not remains to be seen.

Americans Appreciating Federal Government MORE Thanks to Shutdown

The irony of the government shutdown is that G.O.P. Helps Americans Like Government because many people are seeing more clearly what government DOES and what they are missing when government is not there for them.

There is no real government crisis, just an overly pampered private and corporate financial elite who are not paying their fair share of taxes and have not done so ever since the days of President Reagan.

You can't expect those who have no money to finance American federal spending to maintain the status of the USA as the world's leading military power and so protect those who HAVE the money.

Those who have the bear's share of wealth are going to have to start to pay more for maintenance of the system that ENABLES their income and the preservation of what they have, and this includes the health and education of the working classes who work for them.

Government Shutdown Raises Question of Whether the House of Representatives is Necessary as an Institution

We were just reading about the single legislature in the State of Nebraska, the Unicameral Senate.

Much unnecessary excess federal spending via duplication could be reduced by getting rid of the House of Representatives and reducing Congress to a unicameral Senate.

We can not recall one useful thing that the House has done in recent years except to obstruct the nation's progress.

The Senate is the senior body and is always populated by much better qualified people, so what does the House add positively to federal government? Nothing that we can see.
