… I stand with Masterpiece Cakeshop …

.. and its owner , Jack Phillips ..

.. Jack Phillips is an evangelical Christian . He founded his business in Lakewood , Colorado (a suburb of Denver) in the summer of 1993 . One would think that a small businessman , one who does cakes and other bakery products would not cause a big ruckus . One would be wrong ..

.. As an evangelical Christian , Jack Phillips will not do any events for same – sex ceremonies . He has done business with many same – sex couples for other events . He just will not do so for so – called ” same – sex weddings ” and other ceremonies of the like , because of his religious beliefs . As a result , a ” couple ” sued Phillips in the courts in 2012 …

.. The Colorado ” Civil Rights ” Commision upheld the act of an administrative law judge , finding Phillips and his business [Masterpiece Cakeshop] , guilty of discrimination in failing to serve the ” couple . ” It also ordered other ” remedial ” acts for Phillips to undertake . Why ?

.. The Commission has forgotten that Phillips has constitutional rights under the First Amendment , and that those apply to the states , courtesy of the 14th Amendment . Ergo , his constitutional rights to freedom of religion outweigh those created by statute by the State of Colorado . Colorado and other similarly activist states should remember that when they try to pull a stunt such as this …

… the MahaRushie on Matt Drudge …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 4th,2014

.. and , as he admits , himself ..

.. this segment is a long one , from Rush ‘ s show , but it is worth it . For those of you who are not small businessmen and small businesswomen , it is a bit of an education on what these folks have to go through …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..

.. [link] to the Rush Limbaugh Show segment …

.. when most folks pay their taxes , year to year , they ” look back ” with their earned income and their other items . Small business folks have to ” look foward , ” and pay estimated tax (quarterly) during the year (as it goes) . There is a tax penalty if they underestimate their taxes and do not pay enough of  an estimate . They then ” look back ” in 2015 for 2014 taxes …

.. Rush does this , Drudge , Hannity , and every other unincorporated or unparternshiped small businessman or small businesswoman ..

.. those dummies at the White House have never met a payroll , never deal with government rules and regs , etc , so  they would  not understand that … ditto the LamestreamMedia …

… Now You Get the Idea [from the MahaRushie] …

.. why Matt Drudge is right on the button …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the show segment ..

.. Matt is an individual businessman , a small businessman . He files estimated taxes , and is required to ” think forward , ” not backward , like most folks with earned income do . Those with the great mass of their income from unearned income [capital gains , interest , and dividends] as well as small businesses , as requried to file estimated taxes [and , to ” look forward , ” tax wise] …

… Matt Drudge is Right [#LibertyTax] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,March 24th,2014

.. and more …

.. anyone who pays estimated taxes will be in the same situation .

.. [h/t — Breitbart.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the wealthy , for example , have most of their income from capital gains and from interest and dividends . Those items are required to be estimated and paid for on a quarterly basis . They are in a similar boat , and in a more familiar situation than small businesses ..

.. small businesses have to deal with this for themselves , as well as their employees , if they have any . If they do not , then they still have to deal with this item themselves on an estimated basis …

.. those dummies on the ultra – left show their ignorance of business , especially small business , once again . Those dummies do not know what it means to deal with government rules and regs , as well as make a payroll , and maintain professional qualifications . So wise up , doofuses !!…
