It's a Beautiful Spring Day, And Dellena Struggles to Stay In Business

We met Dellena Jones during our first Ferguson BUYcott in August. Since then, St. Louis Tea Partier, Dottie Bailey, has made it her mission to help Dellena's business survive and flourish. https://youtu.be/r-ye3nSe2Vk

Dellena's business has fallen 60 percent since the first riots. She's repaired the damage to her salon, but business is slow.

Despite all her challenges, Dellena still found the time and energy to host Center for Self-Governance training in her shop on a Saturday, foregoing that day's revenue to learn about freedom and responsibility.

This GoFundMe project won't clean up the debris around her shop, but it will help her survive until the area gets cleaned up.

We have a goal of raising $20,000 for Dellena, but we need your help.

Here's what you can do today.

Pledge $1 for every goal the Blues score in their playoff series with Minnesota.

Pledge $10 for every Blues win.

Pledge $2 for every Cardinal run scored in the next week.

Visit the 911 Hair Salon on W. Florissant in Ferguson -- and buy something.

Donate what you can today.

The flip-side of Liberty is Responsibility, and we all need a mission in life that's bigger than ourselves. Just $1 for Dellena Jones will let you say, "I did something."

If you believe in small business, in recovery, and in free enterprise, why not help this woman keep her dream of independence through hard work alive?

You Have No Idea How Much Your Boss Pays in Payroll Taxes

America is suffocating under an amazing tax burden, but most Americans STILL underestimate how much their tax bill really is.  That’s because Washington has done a fantastic job of forcing employers to hide most of the taxes you pay.  If people had to see and deal with their total liability, the Democratic Party would be swept into the dust bin of history. taxes

Here are some frightening facts from Rasmussen:

  • Only 54% of Americans are aware that employers pay payroll taxes on their behalf
  • Of those who do understand this, on 18% grossly underestimate the dollar amount of the taxes their bosses pay on their behalf
  • Only 10% of Americans have a basic understanding of the tax burden placed on their employer on their behalf

I heard a caller to Rush Limbaugh a few weeks ago.  He was a painting contractor who’d been in business for 20 years.  He is shutting down his company. The combination of a horrible economy and the burdens of even more taxes on business, the added regulation under Obama’s administration, the burden of an onerous Obamacare tax avalanche, have combined to make it almost impossible to run a small business—unless that business services the government.
