Tax Day Breakdown

April 15, 2015

The next time some protester stops by to argue about defense spending, let them know we spend more than twice as much on entitlements (social security, medicare, medicaid, etc.) than we do on the military.

And those folks receiving the entitlements? Yeah, they probably don’t pay any taxes either…

More Taxes = More Votes?

February 16, 2014

Love this logic… since it’s evil to be rich (unless, of course, you’re George Soros) and the penalty for being so is to pay your fair share, then it’s only logical (or fair to use a popular adjective) that the amount you pay equals the voice you have in government. If you pay a lot of taxes then you get a lot of votes. If you pay no taxes (I’m looking at you on government assistance or corporations using tax shelters) then you get  no votes.

Because we’re talking about fairness, right?

If our political liabilities — taxes — should be as a matter of justice proportional to our income, then why shouldn’t our political input be likewise proportionate?

Media Double Standards

Wisconsin Unions vs. The Tea Party: A Classic Double Standard – WSJ.com

More double standards from a press that is so blind to their blindness that it’s almost funny – except it’s not.

Choice quote:

When it comes to the Tea Party, network correspondents seem to enjoy playing “civility cop,” emphasizing a few radical and inflammatory signs in ways that imply that the entire cause is extreme. Radical and inflammatory signs were easily found at the Wisconsin protests, but the networks uttered not one peep of disapproval — overwhelming evidence of a double standard that should embarrass any network journalist who still purports to be fair and balanced.

Proof Positive: A Tale of Four Tax Cheats

This is just disgusting…

Short story – of these four people who didn’t pay taxes, the only one scheduled for jail time is the one who ISN’T a politician.

I just went from having no opinion about Wesley Snipes to rooting for him to beat the system.


Stimulus Weatherization Buys Shoddy Work

October 20, 2010

Report: In Obama’s Chicago, stimulus weatherization money buys shoddy work, widespread fraud | Washington Examiner

Every time I heard the president try to sell weatherization I thought of the same ridiculous claim that inflating tires was going to help with gas prices.

Wasn’t this guy supposed to be smart? Hell, Bush could come up with these ideas with one arm tied behind his brain.


Bank Tax – The Real Victim is YOU!

Obama’s Bank Tax – The Real Victim is YOU! | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News

Worth checking out… of all the bailouts received, AIG, Fannie & Freddie, and GM+GMAC are the most egregious. Much was given while nothing has been returned (except votes?).
