Devun & Iikka talk about their DC ads
Go here to check out Iikka and Devun working. I´m pretty impressed by Iikka´s two shots. Can´t wait to see the rest when the Mackodoggo video comes out.
And if you´re not tired of reading about our NZ rally shoot and Ken´s racing feel free to check these two interviews out.
There´s also a documentary in the works about the life and times of Tim Brauch who passed away a few years ago due to heart failure.
And in case you live in Flint Michigan, don´t use sagging pants. You will get a $500 ticket or go to jail for 93-365 days. Way to go "Land of the Free".
And if you do get arrested, make sure the cop doesn´t grab your package like in this clip:
Here´s a trailer for Michael Moore´s movie "Roger & Me" that shows what happened in Flint Michigan in the late 80´s/early 90´s.
I´ve driven through that city and it looked pretty boarded up and depressing (no pun intended to anyone who lives there). But that´s the beauty of capitalism for you.
Speaking of capitalism. I just read that the people (in America) who make more than $100.000 a year pay for 95% of all state and federal taxes! WTF!
This is from an article from 2000, but still.
So all the others who have taxable incomes under $100.000 a year pay the other 5% ?!!!
I need to investigate this (when I have time:).
The top 1% of taxpayers pay 30% of all state and federal taxes?! That doesn´t make any sense to me.
Granted there are some rich bastards here, but 1% of the taxpayers are paying 30% of the taxes?!
And back then in 2000, you were in the top 1% if you made more than $208.000 a year.
Sounds to me like America needs to get the other 99% to pay up some. But before that happens cutting down on military funding seems like a good idea.
I´ll try and bore you with some newer stats when I find them.
Oh, just found some newer stats from 2005..
So let me get this straight... half of America´s households (around 50 million) pays for 3% of the taxes?! Wow.
And on this site it says that the median household income in America is $44.000.
So if your household makes less than that (44k) those families contribute with 3% of the taxes?! I´m confused, and upset.
Is this balance sustainable?
Now off to play tennis.
Here´s some sweet tennis from Borg and McEnroe from 1980.
Gotta love McEnroe.
