Repost about taxes

545 vs. 300,000,000 People -By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.
You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.
You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress.

In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing.

 

I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.

 

The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.
The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes.

 

Who is the speaker of the House now? He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree.
It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility.

 

I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.
When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.
If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.
If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan …
If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.
There are no insoluble government problems.
Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish;

 

to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject;

 

to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have the power.
They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees…
We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

What you do with this article now that you have read it… is up to you.

This might be funny if it weren’t true.

Be sure to read all the way to the end:
Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the table, At which he’s fed.
Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, Teach him taxes Are the rule.
Tax his work, Tax his pay, He works for peanuts anyway!
Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat.
Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he Tries to think.
Tax his cigars, Tax his beers, If he cries Tax his tears.
Tax his car, Tax his gas, Find other ways To tax his ass.

Tax all he has Then let him know That you won’t be done,

Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers; Then tax him some more, Tax him till He’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave, Tax the sod in Which he’s laid…
Put these words Upon his tomb, ‘Taxes drove me to my doom…’
When he’s gone, Do not relax, It’s time to apply The inheritance tax.
Accounts Receivable Tax Building Permit Tax CDL license Tax Cigarette Tax Corporate Income Tax Dog License Tax Excise Taxes Federal Income Tax Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA) Fishing License Tax Food License Tax Fuel Permit Tax Gasoline Tax (currently 44.75 cents per gallon) Gross Receipts Tax Hunting License Tax Inheritance Tax Inventory Tax IRS Interest Charges

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom, if agreed, stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the heck happened?

 

Can you spell ‘politicians?’

 

I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!!

 

YOU can help it get there!!!
GO AHEAD. . . BE AN AMERICAN!!!

Gnosticism

Years ago (when I was determined to find out where Jesus was for almost twenty years) I saw a video that a group of historians had made about the thirteenth apostle. I know most only believe in twelve, but these historians seemed to think that Mary Magdalene was not only the thirteenth apostle, but they seem to think she also spent more time with Jesus then the rest of his followers.

They also believe she wrote her own gospel (which were found with the Dead Sea scrolls in Egypt 1947) about what she learned as a result. They also believe she was one of the founders of organized Gnosticism in France (this is where she traveled to after the resurrection of Jesus), and some also believe she did all of this while with child. This appears to be one of the cornerstones of their belief system.

But, this is not where Gnostic beliefs started. There are many forefathers to this faith. One of the biggest was John the Baptist. But, now that I think about it this may not be the best place to start.

One of the first things you should know about the Gnostic faith is that they believe that there are two gods. The first and foremost is the Transcendent God. This god is a part of everything, and everything has part of the Transcendent God within it. The Transcendent God is also known as the Divine Light.

Now, from what I have read so far, they believe that something happened to the Divine Light causing it to expand so far, so fast that parts of it had become unwholesome. This is what they believe created the Half Maker without his knowledge.

The second god is the Creator God also known as the Half Maker. They believe that this is the god that made everything you can see and touch using a stolen piece of the Divine Light. This is also the god that made us and everything in his image. So they say since (on this world) life feeds on life the world is imperfect. Therefore the Half Maker and everything else he made must be imperfect also.

The Gnostics, believing the Half Maker to be anything from incompetent to malevolent, worship the Divine Light, who they believe to be the one true God.

I’ll get back to this very soon

Survival in Times of Chaos

so there i was reading, as always, going over laws and i noticed that no matter were i look i didn’t see any contingency plans.  

say some one wanted to bomb the US where would you go? I know it sounds far fetched, but in the town were i grew up there are several bomb shelters. You don’t see their signs out in the open, but if you like to walk and you’d rather walk in the alleys you will see them all over town.

so i started to ask people why they were there, and if they knew what we where to do if something happened.

Sadly, most of the towns residents had no idea they were even there. In fact i had to show one of them where the sign was so he would believe me. lol

It turned out that they were left over bomb shelters put into place during one of the wars. from what i could tell from everyone i asked they where no longer in use. the town just kind of built over them.

what i did discover is that out of the one hundred people i asked two had a contingency plan, and the rest had no clue that there are even food shortages in the world.

Now i have my food storage and supplies, and i grow my food, coffee, fruit, etc, save compost, and have been working on getting the whole house to run off it’s own power supply.

so what do i do if it doesn’t happen? who cares, i just cut my bills down to almost nothing. So, if it doesn’t happen i’m going to be way ahead of the game.

The point is that if we prep for it we have nothing to worry about.

There are several books out designed to help you do these things. I have the SAS book set, and books on growing your own food, building power supplies. You can get most of them off of the web.
