capital-gains-tax-rates-and-entrepreneurs

My friend Lance Weatherby over at Force of Good has a post about the effects of capital gains tax rates on startups and equity investing - saying he won't vote for anyone who wants to raise the capital gains tax rate.. My main source of income for the last 10 years has been capital gains and it doesn't look like that is going to change any time soon, unfortunately. So I am certainly fond of lower capital gains rates. However, I think capital gains rates are too low and that many arguments against raising the rates are spurious at best.

Yet another sign that China will surpass the US in technological expertise: They will soon be using computers to hand out death penalties.

blog-update

Sorry for the lack of postings. Trackbacks are now back on, though we continue to get a bunch of attempted postings. Mod_security seems to be stopping most of the attempts and we've added some code into the trackback skin that helps as well.

From SFGAte.com comes this:

States will be required to help evacuate pets during a natural disaster such as a hurricane or earthquake or risk losing federal money under a bill signed Friday by President Bush.
I'll keep it short here:
  1. This is dangerous. Scared animals are dangerous
  2. This is expensive.
The law also authorizes FEMA to provide additional money to create pet-friendly shelters and provide special assistance to pet owners.
