Income tax is one of those painful things that should happen to other people. There will always be reasons we should pay less and others should pay more. As taxpayers we don’t have much say one way or the other. Washington will spend our money as it sees fit, though despite what we like to think much of that spending is mandatory, not discretionary.
Every time we choose a new president we decide our nation’s future, or at least that’s what we are told. It’s almost never true. Even the brashest, most out of control presidential act can be stopped dead in its tracks by a simple court decision. Money matters a lot more than who is in charge and in politics that means fighting over debt and spending, a battle with much higher stakes than bickering over who gets to be our national figurehead.
If someone close to you has died from cancer or if you have been diagnosed, you know all too well that curing cancer is important. Cancer changes lives in ways that can never be repaired. Keeping this in mind, were you amused or offended by the newest grab from our lame duck president for more space in the history books?
When you have a problem and don’t know how to solve it, should you give up? Giving up seldom fails to bring failure but it works in Washington, where crisis government seems to be the only kind we have and the best we’re going to get.
When your business is government, faking a crisis has its advantages.
Don’t blame the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for what liberalism is doing to America. At best they are has-beens and puppets for the real agitators, the ones with the power to persuade, to divide, and to force the country to follow their dictates. These troublemakers are in the nation’s face every day. Think Obama.
There is no better time to give up that dead end career wearing a paper hat and stuffing French fries in bags. Finally, criminals are going to be rewarded for making a worthwhile life choice. They won’t have to worry about the will of the people being heard in Washington and getting in the way of causing pain, property loss, suffering, and death.
Does progressive tax reform mean an end to government waste, or does it mean more money to spend to make up for what our federal and state bureaucracies lose? Backers of a progressive tax fix for federal and state budgets focus on more revenue for the middle and lower classes. They don’t usually mention that the programs they insist we fund at a rising cost to taxpayers account for a staggering amount of government waste.
Why do we deserve government handouts when life hits the skids? Because politicians say we do. It’s that simple. America owes you nothing, which is why it is so important for pols to blur the distinction between our country and our government.
Not all Americans deserve government handouts. Those who are owed nothing get to pay for the giveaways Democrats and even some Republicans keep telling Americans they are owed.
