Pay More Taxes

first_imgOver the last couple of days a number of people have shared with me their feelings about the outcome of the Presidential election.They’ve said things like, “The government punishes business so much, there isn’t going to be any reason to put forth the effort.” I’ve heard, “Why should I work so hard when the government is going to make me pay more and more taxes?”Here’s my favorite: “Forty-seven percent of the people aren’t even going to try. They’re just going live on government handouts.”You personal economy has nothing to do with outcome of the Presidential election. That isn’t how successful people look at these issues.The Truth (For Those That Will Heed the Call)Pay the highest tax rate you possibly can.Succeed so wildly in all of your business endeavors that you find yourself in a tax bracket that makes you crazy uncomfortable. Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, but keep the rest for yourself. Make sure that remainder is enough that you make your life the best life possible.Now let’s deal with the forty-seven percent. Let’s say forty-seven percent of the population isn’t going to try to succeed. It’s sad. But for our purposes it means that half of the people with the skill, talents, and abilities—but lacking the ambition—aren’t going be competing with you (not that I believe that number is anything close to accurate).Unless you are in politics, there isn’t much you can do about the outcome of any election. What you can do something about is your mindset and the level of success you achieve. Go ahead and succeed, and pay more taxes. Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling?

Steve Kerr speaks out on US shootings, Obama White House visits

Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “My novice analysis was it was not a particularly well-played game, but again, the result was the desired one for Liverpool fans,” Kerr said. Kerr, guiding the defending champions in the NBA Finals for the fifth year in a row, said he hopes a younger US generation that has lived under the fear of mass shootings might force a change in American gun-ownership laws.“The young generation, the March For Our Lives generation, has really inspired me,” Kerr said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“So I offer my support to them and to all young people, and hope that we can create a change where we don’t all have to walk around scared we’re going to get shot in our country.”Police say the shootings Friday at a municipal building in Virginia Beach, Virginia, were by public works department engineer DeWayne Craddock. Kerr said he was not aware Obama would attend until “a little while” before he spoke to the media and recalled the Warriors’ visit to Obama’s White House after the team’s 2015 NBA crown as a great moment.“The White house visit, for sure, after the 2015 championship,” Kerr said. “That was quite a thrill to visit there and have the whole team there. It was a treat to experience that.”What went unsaid was the team’s decision not to visit US President Donald Trump in the White House after winning the NBA titles the past two seasons.No visits to TrumpWarriors star guard Stephen Curry said after Golden State’s 2017 title that he wouldn’t go to the Trump White House. A White House invitation was later rescinded by Trump after Curry and others had already said they wouldn’t attend.That prompted NBA star LeBron to call Trump a “bum” on Twitter and add, “Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”Last year, Warriors stars Curry and Kevin Durant and James said during the finals they would not attend a White House celebration if their team won.Kerr called Trump a “blowhard” and “ill-suited” to be president in 2017.Kerr was an 18-year-old college freshman in January 1984 when his father Malcolm, then president of American University of Beirut, was shot in the back of the head.As a player, Kerr won five NBA titles, three with the Chicago Bulls and two with San Antonio. He has coached the Warriors to three titles in four seasons and seeks another this year.Kerr, a Liverpool supporter, did strike a lighter tone in congratulating the club for beating Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final.

Report: Burnley 1 Southampton 1

first_imgBurnley 1 Southampton 1: Gabbiadini grabs late leveller Stephen Creek Last updated 1 year ago 01:02 2/25/18 Sean Dyche - cropped Getty Images Burnley missed out on their first Premier League win since December 12 as Manolo Gabbiadini struck late on for Southampton. Manolo Gabbiadini scored his first Premier League goal of 2018 to earn Southampton a 1-1 draw against Burnley that lifts them out of the relegation zone.The Italian struck in the 90th minute of the game to deny Burnley a result that would have ended a run of 10 league games without a win for Sean Dyche’s men.After Leicester City were held to a 1-1 draw by Stoke City earlier in the day, Burnley went into the game knowing a win would move them three points clear of Claude Puel’s Foxes but they struggled to break down a resurgent Southampton side for over an hour. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Mauricio Pellegrino’s Saints arrived at Turf Moor having lost just one of their previous five Premier League games and they looked determined to eke out a result, but the lack of a cutting edge in the final third looked set to let them down, as it has done so many times this season.Burnley struck first in the 67th minute when Aaron Lennon, who provided the home side with a threat down both wings throughout the afternoon, whipped the ball into the box, where Ashley Barnes applied the final touch to take it over the line with his head.But Gabbiadini latched onto Guido Carrillo’s pass in the Burnley area and applied a clinical finish to leave the home crowd disappointed at the final whistle.FULL TIME: #BFC 1-1 #SaintsFCLate drama sees the visitors take a point at Turf Moor thanks to @Mgabbia23’s strike. pic.twitter.com/cTDNjmBxli— Southampton FC (@SouthamptonFC) February 24, 2018Burnley’s former England winger Lennon showed good technique as he volleyed the first shot of the game from the edge of the Southampton box into the arms of goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.The visitors responded with a sweeping attacking move, Nathan Redmond darting to the edge of the Burnley penalty area before threading a pass to Dusan Tadic, whose shot with the outside of his left foot was blocked by the legs of Clarets defender Ben Mee.Burnley should have taken the lead when Matthew Lowton’s marauding run reached the by-line and he crossed to Barnes, who cut the ball back to Lennon, but the diminutive playmaker saw his shot blocked after 28 minutes.After a spell of Southampton pressure early in the second half, James Ward-Prowse tried a raking, low corner to the edge of the penalty area, where Redmond arrived to meet it but his shot failed to penetrate a crowd of Burnley defenders.Jeff Hendrick raced clear of the Southampton defence just before the hour mark but McCarthy made himself big and pulled off a brave block at the Republic of Ireland international’s feet before the loose ball was sent over the crossbar by Ashley Westwood.The momentum was with Dyche’s men and Barnes should have made it count when Westwood’s looping cross picked him out in the box but his header lacked power and accuracy, trickling wide of to the right of the goal.He was given another chance moments later when Lennon’s cross was met by the boot of Johann Berg Gudmundsson and, after McCarthy’s parry found the head of Hendrick, Barnes bundled the ball over the line from point blank range.PIC: Ashley Barnes scrambles the Clarets ahead. Can they hold on? pic.twitter.com/lxLKXM6fXc— Burnley FC (@BurnleyOfficial) February 24, 2018Burnley’s claims for a penalty were waved away when McCarthy appeared to handle the ball outside the area moments later and the let-off allowed Southampton to chase an equaliser in the closing stages.Substitute Josh Sims carved out space for himself 20 yards from goal and his curling right-footed shot looked destined for the top right corner of the net before Nick Pope palmed it onto the post.But there was still time for more and Sims’ cross found Carrillo, whose pass across the Burnley area was pounced upon by Gabbiadini and he took a touch before slamming the ball home from eight yards to ensure the points were shared. Key Opta stats:- Burnley are winless in their last 11 Premier League games (D6 L5), their longest such run in the competition since January 2010 (12 games).- Southampton have not lost any of the last nine Premier League games in which they have started the day in the relegation zone (W4 D5), since a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool in December 2012.- Saints have won just once in their last 15 Premier League matches (D8 L6).- Manolo Gabbiadini netted his first Premier League goal in 15 appearances and first since bagging a brace against Newcastle in October 2017.- Ashley Barnes netted his fourth Premier League goal of the season, no Burnley player has scored more this term (level with Chris Wood).- The Clarets have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last five home PL games, this after keeping four shutouts in the five games before this run. read morelast_img read more
