Read Dad’s reply to this email.

I have no idea where this came from or if it’s for real.  But it is interesting.  The version I got was bold but it screwed up the post if left it that way but that’s the only change.  I didn’t get the attachment.  Does anyone have it? 

hey Dad
Let’s talk later today. Looking for what you think and what you’ve been thinking. Here is mine. Give me the best reasons that I should vote for McCain and tell me if what I’ve found is a load of bull. I’m having trouble thinking it through. Maybe too much CNN & SNL haha Also need to check out what obama might do to small businesses – havn’t had time to do that do you have anything?I’m thinking okay, McCain has done such strange things over the last couple of weeks and Sarah Palin isn’t ready so thought it best to check out Obama’s tax plan for myself.

Taxes and taking care of my family is my issue – it’s the only issue as far as I’m concerned. However, McCain is obviously the only choice for national defense. Finally, a war hero as the president – – – – but that won’t pay my bills.

You’d have to make over $250,000 a year for your taxes to increase under the Obama plan. I’ve attached a chart. So this idea that he’s gonna raise taxes on us may not be right – unless your somebody that I’m not – no way I make close to $250,000 a year. I wish!

I’m also looking at gas prices. My taxes didn’t go down much during Bush’s time but gas has gone crazy. So they lowered my taxes by a few dollars and then raised the price of gas x 3.

And it ticks me off that the top people at oil companies are getting rich while we are getting robbed at the gas stations.

They had record profits and some CEOs made over $30 million in one year.

When Bush took office the average price of gasoline was $1.56 per gallon. Now it’s $4.07 . I don’t know who is to blame but I know that my tiny tax cut didn’t pay for the out of pocket that I have in gas.

Do you think that the numbers from the Census adjusted for inflation are right? I’m not sure how this works but it looks like most of us lost more than $2,000 a year in income since Bush has been in office. That makes since because at work we’re cutting back cutting back – asking to pay more of our own health insurance. While prices have gone up up up, work gives me less less less. Dad, is the Washington Times an okay sourc? Aren’t they conservative? Maybe I’m wrong if so discount this story – read title=”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/aug/27/household-incomes-flat-during-bush-administration/” href=”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/aug/27/household-incomes-flat-during-bush-administration/”>this story from the Washington Times. the country has lost jobs for the last 7 months and house values are zomming down.I know my house is worth lots less now. We wanted to move when Tom hit 6th grade but I don’t think we could pay off the mortage with what’d we’d get.

Here is the Obama tax thing in a nut shell – Looks like my taxes would go down. I’d have to make over $250,000 to get an increase.

Other stuff I found and it is making me lean against the party. I just can’t keep going backwards financially . Maybe you have to be rich for it to work for you. I’m I off here?

Exxon has had record profits. They booked $11.7 billion JUST IN one quarter. Here is an article on it:

Last year, the CEOs of the 15 largest oil companies took home a total of $512.9 million, averaging over $34 million each. The top earner of $95.1 million was Bill Greehey, top executive of Valero Energy, the la…you can read more here
