One other place you might enjoy is Selby Gardens in Sarasota on Sarasota Bay. That is a beautiful spot for shooting.

He was looking at moving jpegs true. But not on cards. They were on his laptop and he erased the cards.
Whether you chose to move 10 or 100 I'd still just select them and move. C&P and then deleting is asking for trouble.

Like Graphics said, arrange by file type, click on the first file, shift click the last file you want to move and drag and drop. If you miss one or two files you'll know right away. Plus there's no chance you accidentally delete the wrong file(s).

He could also be trying to make you think. Make you look for the answer. Made me think about some of my shots that didn't turn out although according to the numbers should have been perfect. The "secret". if I am correct, and I usually am, is really simple.

Well the world didn't end. Now what are we going to do? The Mayans were wrong. Or maybe our interpretation was wrong and all it really meant was the Mayan Calendar ended because they weren't around to update it. Could be. Maybe.

Wasn't this the question? Or am I missing something?

The answer to that specific question is No. I am not one of the millionaires who doesn't want to pay my share.

Now answer my question. What is my "fair" share?
20%
30%
50%
75%
100%?

Or something else?

Yes. I want to pay my fair share. I have no problem paying "my fair share".

A person who willfully steals a gun and shoots another person is not following the laws in place. That person is not following the Constitution. You're Constitutional right to bear arms as a law abiding citizen does not in any way hamper another person's rights to those same self evident truths.

Yeah but here we/I am just talking Federal Level.

I also said this:

In addition to salaries and wages, the employer will incur some or all of the following payroll-related expenses:





QuoteQuote:

  1. Employer portion of Social Security tax

  2. Employer portion of Medicare tax

  3. State unemployment tax

  4. Federal unemployment tax

  5. Worker compensation insurance

  6. Employer portion of insurance (health, dental, vision, life, disability)

  7. Employer paid holidays, vacations, and sick days

  8. Employer contributions toward 401(k), savings plans, & profit-sharing plans

  9. Employer contributions to pension plans

  10. Post-retirement health insurance

For example, if an employee earns $40,000 of wages, the entire $40,000 is subject to the Social Security tax. This means that in addition to the withholding of $1,680, the employer must also pay $2,480. The combined amount to be remitted to the federal government for this one employee is $4,160 ($1,680 of withholding plus the employer's portion of $2,480).


Every employer must contribute/remit to the federal government an amount identical to the Medicare tax withheld from each employee's pay. This match is considered to be an expense for the employer. For the year 2012, the employer's portion of the Medicare tax is the same rate as the employee's withholding—1.45% of every dollar of each employee's annual wages and salary.

Unlike the Social Security tax, there is no cap (ceiling or limit); if a top executive earns a salary of $300,000, the employer must pay a Medicare tax of $4,350 in addition to the $4,350 that was withheld from the executive. The combined amount to be remitted to the federal government for this one employee is $8,700.

State governments administer unemployment services and determine the state unemployment tax rate for each employer. (Some not-for-profit organizations—such as churches without schools—may not be required to pay state unemployment taxes. You should check with your state unemployment office to learn the specifics for your organization.)

Generally, states require that the employers pay the entire unemployment tax. Often, employers that have built up a large reserve in the state's unemployment fund will have lower unemployment tax rates; conversely, employers with a small reserve (or no reserve at all) will have higher unemployment tax rates.

The unemployment tax rate is often applied only to the first $7,000 of each employee's annual salary and wages (this amount will differ from state to state). If we assume that an employer's unemployment tax rate is 4% and that this is applied to the first $7,000 of annual salaries and wages, then the employer's state unemployment tax cost will be a maximum of $280 per year for each employee ($7,000 × 4%).



The federal government oversees the state unemployment programs and requires employers to pay a federal unemployment tax of 0.8% on each employee's first $7,000 of annual salaries and wages.

Using the example of three employees with annual 2012 earnings of $19,000, $40,000, and $4,000; with a federal unemployment tax rate of 0.8%, the employer will pay a tax of $144 to the federal government:



Worker compensation insurance provides coverage for employees who are injured on the job. State law usually requires that employers carry this insurance. Worker compensation insurance rates are a function of at least three variables: (1) the type of business or industry, (2) the type of job being performed, and (3) the employer's history of claims.

For example, statistics show that a production worker in a meat packing plant has a greater-than-average chance of suffering job-related cuts or back injuries. Because of this, worker compensation insurance rates for these employees can be as high as 15% of wages. On the other hand, the office staff of the meat packing plant—provided that they do not venture out into the production area—may have a rate that is less than 1% of salaries and wages.

The worker compensation insurance rates are then applied to the wages and salaries of the employees to arrive at the worker compensation insurance premiums or costs. Although the insurance premiums are based on employee salaries and wages, the entire premium cost is likely to be paid by the employer and is considered an expense for the employer. (Contact your state's worker compensation office for the specifics in your state.)

If the employer pays the premium in advance, a current asset such as Prepaid Insurance is used. The account balance will be reduced and Worker Compensation Insurance Expense will increase as the employees work.

If the employer does not pay the premiums in advance, the company must accrue the expense with an adjusting entry that increases Worker Compensation Insurance Expense along with increases in a current liability such as Worker Compensation Insurance Liability. In this situation the current liability will be reduced when the employer pays the worker compensation insurance premiums.

Worker compensation insurance is a significant expense for the employer and therefore we consider it an important part of payroll accounting.

Worker compensation insurance is a significant expense for the employer and therefore we consider it an important part of payroll accounting.

Many companies pay their permanent employees for holidays such as New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It is not unusual for employees to be paid for 10 holidays per year. It is also common for employees to earn one week of vacation after one year of service. Many employers give their employees two weeks of vacation after three years of service, with more weeks given after 10 years of service.

Paid sick days are also a common benefit given to employees. If an employee is absent from work due to such things as illness or surgery, the company will pay the employee for the time missed. Employers generally set policies as to how sick days are to be used, and as to whether or not an employee is permitted to carry over unused sick days into subsequent years.

The matching principle requires that the cost of compensated (or paid) absences (holidays, vacations, and sick days) be recognized as an expense during the time the employee is present and working. In other words, the cost is expensed when the benefit is being earned by the employee, not when the benefit is being used by the employee. (However, the Financial Accounting Standards Board generally allows for sick days and holidays not to be accrued.)

To illustrate, assume that an employee works full-time for the entire year 2011 and as a result earns one week of vacation to be taken any time during the year 2012. During the year 2011 (when the employee is working), the employer records the vacation expense and the vacation liability. In 2012, when the employee takes the vacation earned in the previous year, the employer records the cash payment by crediting Cash and reduces the company liability by debiting Vacation Payable.

Where? And I am talking about Federal Income Taxes. Excluding SS, Medicare. Just INCOME TAXES. And add in those who have it taken out of their check but get back all of it or more in a refund.

Factbox: Half of Americans pay no U.S. income tax? Well, sort of .. | Reuters

Keep it on FEDERAL INCOME TAX. And the "rich" pay all of those taxes also. Plus we pay Income Tax unlike 47% of the populace.

BTW. If tax rates stay the same I will gladly pay more in taxes. Means I made more money and am able to hire more people. Not only able but will have no choice but to hire more. But why should I get any larger if over half of it will go to the government to waste?
