Please Help Bobby & Elisa Seeger From Indian Larry Motorcycles Treat Their Son.

This post to ask you, as much as possible, to provide help and support to a well known couple of the industry, Bobby & Elisa Seeger from Indian Motorcycles.

Their 7-year old son named Aidan  has been diagnosed with a horrible brain disease  called Adrenoleukodystrody (ALD). It is a rare, inherited disorder that leads to progressive brain damage, failure of the adrenal glands and eventually death. Friends of the motorcycle industry are uniting to help ease the Seeger’s financial burden during their son’s treatment. This is a child who really needs our help. Last week “Aidan Posse Benefit Concert” had an incredible turn out, but it’s not enough. So, if you can, please give a donation for his medical treatment, even if it’s only $5.00. Go to Aidan Has A Posse 

Adian is in dire of a bone marrow donor. To find out if you are the match, please join “Adain Has A Posse” on Facebook. or go to Bone Marrow and look for a drive or center near you. You can also request a mail-in kit, which is a painless cheek swab exam. This will put you in the marrow bank to not only help Aidan but potentially anyone else down the road with a similar situation. So please get on board today. People around New-York can also participate to a fundraiser Saturday, August 27,  from 11:00am  to 5:00pm at Indian Larry Motorcycles, 400 Union Ave, Brooklyn, NY. Thank you.

    Please everyone, this is an adorable perfect fun loving boy. His parents now own Indian Larry Motorcycles.They are extremly hard working parents who do everything they can for their children. Aidan Came down with this horrific “ALD” it is life threatening. His treatments will take every dime all of us can give to help him. My idea is: if you smoke, cigarettes from what I can see are anywhere from $5 to $9 per pack, a 6 pack of beer is around give or take $12. For just one time don’t buy that second pack of cigarettes or 2nd 6 pack of beer and send the money to the family…

    Honestly this has just hit home with all of us. this could have happened to anyone of us who have a child in the family. PLEASE, PLEASE I am BEGGING EVERYONE TO HELP AIDAN. If you ever met this child you would understand how important it is to help.

    And thank you to Sandra, for emailing me back and forth all day Sunday to help. God Bless you for helping Sandra…

    Bobby and Elisa are great people and a big part of our community, dedicated to keeping a legends name on our minds and to keep his style alive. It pains me to see their family being tested like this and even more so for a child to have to deal with this. so at bare minimum please join “Adain Has A Posse” on Facebook. or go to Bone Marrow and look for a drive or center near you.

    I wish them all nothing but the very best.

    I do not want to upset anyone but it astonishes me how in the richest country in the world a child needs to raise funds to receive appropriate medical treatment. How can this be?

    America has the worst healthcare system. The only way is universal healthcare as proposed by Obama and opposed by these fxxxxng Republicans who are financed by pharmaceutical companies..

    Our leaders have asked for “shared sacrifice.” But when they did the asking, they spared me. I checked with my mega-rich friends to learn what pain they were expecting. They, too, were left untouched.

    While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks. Some of us are investment managers who earn billions from our daily labors but are allowed to classify our income as “carried interest,” thereby getting a bargain 15 percent tax rate. Others own stock index futures for 10 minutes and have 60 percent of their gain taxed at 15 percent, as if they’d been long-term investors.

    These and other blessings are showered upon us by legislators in Washington who feel compelled to protect us, much as if we were spotted owls or some other endangered species. It’s nice to have friends in high places.

    Last year my federal tax bill — the income tax I paid, as well as payroll taxes paid by me and on my behalf — was $6,938,744. That sounds like a lot of money. But what I paid was only 17.4 percent of my taxable income — and that’s actually a lower percentage than was paid by any of the other 20 people in our office. Their tax burdens ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent and averaged 36 percent.

    If you make money with money, as some of my super-rich friends do, your percentage may be a bit lower than mine. But if you earn money from a job, your percentage will surely exceed mine — most likely by a lot.

    To understand why, you need to examine the sources of government revenue. Last year about 80 percent of these revenues came from personal income taxes and payroll taxes. The mega-rich pay income taxes at a rate of 15 percent on most of their earnings but pay practically nothing in payroll taxes. It’s a different story for the middle class: typically, they fall into the 15 percent and 25 percent income tax brackets, and then are hit with heavy payroll taxes to boot.

    Back in the 1980s and 1990s, tax rates for the rich were far higher, and my percentage rate was in the middle of the pack. According to a theory I sometimes hear, I should have thrown a fit and refused to invest because of the elevated tax rates on capital gains and dividends.

    I didn’t refuse, nor did others. I have worked with investors for 60 years and I have yet to see anyone — not even when capital gains rates were 39.9 percent in 1976-77 — shy away from a sensible investment because of the tax rate on the potential gain. People invest to make money, and potential taxes have never scared them off. And to those who argue that higher rates hurt job creation, I would note that a net of nearly 40 million jobs were added between 1980 and 2000. You know what’s happened since then: lower tax rates and far lower job creation.

    Since 1992, the I.R.S. has compiled data from the returns of the 400 Americans reporting the largest income. In 1992, the top 400 had aggregate taxable income of $16.9 billion and paid federal taxes of 29.2 percent on that sum. In 2008, the aggregate income of the highest 400 had soared to $90.9 billion — a staggering $227.4 million on average — but the rate paid had fallen to 21.5 percent.

    The taxes I refer to here include only federal income tax, but you can be sure that any payroll tax for the 400 was inconsequential compared to income. In fact, 88 of the 400 in 2008 reported no wages at all, though every one of them reported capital gains. Some of my brethren may shun work but they all like to invest. (I can relate to that.)

    I know well many of the mega-rich and, by and large, they are very decent people. They love America and appreciate the opportunity this country has given them. Many have joined the Giving Pledge, promising to give most of their wealth to philanthropy. Most wouldn’t mind being told to pay more in taxes as well, particularly when so many of their fellow citizens are truly suffering.

    Twelve members of Congress will soon take on the crucial job of rearranging our country’s finances. They’ve been instructed to devise a plan that reduces the 10-year deficit by at least $1.5 trillion. It’s vital, however, that they achieve far more than that. Americans are rapidly losing faith in the ability of Congress to deal with our country’s fiscal problems. Only action that is immediate, real and very substantial will prevent that doubt from morphing into hopelessness. That feeling can create its own reality.

    Job one for the 12 is to pare down some future promises that even a rich America can’t fulfill. Big money must be saved here. The 12 should then turn to the issue of revenues. I would leave rates for 99.7 percent of taxpayers unchanged and continue the current 2-percentage-point reduction in the employee contribution to the payroll tax. This cut helps the poor and the middle class, who need every break they can get.

    But for those making more than $1 million — there were 236,883 such households in 2009 — I would raise rates immediately on taxable income in excess of $1 million, including, of course, dividends and capital gains. And for those who make $10 million or more — there were 8,274 in 2009 — I would suggest an additional increase in rate.

    My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress. It’s time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice.
