It’s that Time of year again…

As we all know, many of us will soon be receiving hundreds and hundreds of Thank You Cards from all over the United States written by those who are getting Welfare in its myriad forms.

I realize times can be tough and sometimes a person Very Desperately needs help.  With that in mind, it’s the level of Genuine Appreciation that I find so Wonderful and Heart Warming.  If anything, it’s the simple “Thank You” that makes it so easy to get up everyday and go to one of three jobs a hate so very much.  It’s truly the little things that keep me going.

So when the bags and bags full of Thank You Cards come rolling in it can be a bit overwhelming even for me.  And a little emotional as well.  But, so you all know, I take what time I have to read each and every one of them.

Frankly, there is little in this world I enjoy more than hearing how they’re working diligently to stop receiving my tax dollars, not to mention the rewards of self-sufficiency that are being reaped in their homes.  I also relish the many mentions of how their children are learning some of the most difficult lessons in life, such as what it means to be honest, learn a trade, work hard, make wise decisions, delay gratification, live within one’s means, avoid debt, save even when you think you can’t, and of course spend wisely.

If you’re one of these folks, please find it within yourselves to forgive me but given the time constraints due to my jobs, I’d like to once again offer this as my annual response;

“You’re Welcome.”


House Republicans Inexplicably Throw President Obama a Lifeline.

Today the Establishment House Republicans passed a two page Bill intended to keep President Obama’s demand to “allow” Insurance Companies to continue offering plans to those that have them even when they do not meet the New Requirements of Obama Care Constitutional.  This effort is too clever by half as Insurance Companies must get approval from the States Insurance Commissions… then get the plans and plan holders re-instated… and then they will only be good for an additional year, only to become illegal again.  It’s stupid.  But still illustrates something.

In other words, The Republicans are trying to assist the President in remaining within the intended, written, carefully crafted confines of the U.S. Constitution.

The President has vowed to Veto this Bill should Harry Reid allow it through the Democrat Controlled Senate.

Why?

Only two reasonable explanations can exist.

Either President Obama has assumed dictatorial control of the United States and invalidated the U.S. Constitution… in his own mind.

Or, The President has no intention of “allowing” you to keep your insurance and is yet again Lying, Misleading or Prevaricating in order to by more time.  This additional time would be used to paint the Insurance Companies as being at fault because they will not be able to do what the President is magically demanding they do… because of his own law.

I’m sure the President would not want to see the entire Health Insurance System Implode, leaving you with no choice but to secure Expensive Insurance with Coverage you do not need or pay Draconian Fines enforced by the friendly folks at the IRS.  When I say coverage you do not need, the odds are you will never require a Pap Smear and Prostate Exam.  Unless… never mind.

I’m also sure the President could not possibly consider himself above the Constitution of the United States.  That means he would have to think the laws do not apply to him or his Administration… or for that matter His Party.  All of that would be grounds for Impeachment, and that would be ridiculous.

So he is a Space Alien.

Mystery Solved.

Could be all three…  I’ll have to spend some time drinking about that.


Will Harry Reid Shut down the Government?!

Looks like it.

It looks like the Progressives will fall on their sword to save the Crown Jewel of Socialism… even though the majority of Americans Don’t want it.

At this point one has to ask “Why?”

Why are the Democrats so ideologically bound to a Universal Health Care scheme that not only raises prices and reduces the quality of services for everyone, but will end in bankruptcy just like the past Socialist schemes such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

It seems to escape all of our leaders, every minute of every day that We are Out of Money.

So is that their goal?

Could it be the End Game is to bankrupt the entire country?

Is there a “sane” person anywhere in the United States who would advocate such a plan?

Well… yes.  Many of them in fact.  But the ones who put it on paper were

Two Liberal Progressive Professors who are still around and quite influential… Cloward and Piven.

“The  duo taught that if you flooded the welfare rolls and bankrupted the cities and  ultimately the nation, it would foster economic collapse, which would lead to  political turmoil so severe that socialism would be accepted as a fix to an  out-of-control set of circumstances.”

It all makes sense once you realize that there truly are people out there that hate the way this country was created.  They’ll look right at the camera and say unequivocally “I Love America!”, but the America they love is a location, a place on the map, a place they happen to reside… but absolutely not an idea.

In the End, They fully intend to spend us into oblivion.  And, Everything is Going according to Plan…


DISTRACT

The United States is Bankrupt.

The U.S. Government continues to deny the fact they caused the problem in the first place… supposedly with the best of intentions.

The Federal Reserve is reduced to printing as much money as possible because they believe it is the only tactic which THEY can “save” the entire system.

The public is starting to understand that every time the Federal Reserve prints more money it immediately devalues everything they have saved.

The public is realizing that QE or Quantitative Easing which is this act of printing money that should otherwise not exist is nothing more than taxing all those responsible enough to have put away for their retirement, own their home, own their business etc.

The public is seeing clearly that this tactic is not working.  (In fact, it has never worked anywhere in the world.)

There is no growth.

Unemployment is flat… and it’s only that “good” because the numbers a being played with.

The stock market is going up, but only because the rest of the world is terrified at what is going on in their countries so they are putting their money in the U.S.  This will stop very soon, once the majority of wealth has been relocated.  Then what?

The EPA is taking control of every industry in the United States through existing, and many new, onerous regulations.

Our President Fiddles While The Middle East, Korean Peninsula and Rome Burns…

So… these are the issues we are being told by the press to pay attention to? RIGHT NOW!

Gay Marriage.

Illegal Immigration.

Racial Discrimination.

Fairness.

Let me ask, does addressing any side on any of these issues solve our current race to fiscal oblivion?

No.

All that should matter to us, at least any of us who love the country as it was founded with Individual Liberty being paramount, are the Four Horsemen of the Fiscal Apocalypse.

1.  Social Security

2.  Medicare

3.  Medicaid

4.  And Now… Universal Healthcare

Yet we sit on our hands arguing about Social Issues.  Social Issues which will mean nothing when the economy collapses… we suffer food shortages… energy rationing… riots.

The insult we must all confront is an ever-present resistance to spending reductions of any kind.  This latest resistance to a mere 5% cut IN THE GROWTH RATE of spending bringing it down to 5% should have brought us all out into the streets.  That it did not frightens me the most.  But it empowers those in charge.

We are in trouble and those who find it acceptable are desperate to distract all of us from what is important.

If we don’t deal with the Four Horsemen there will be no country left to deal with any imagined social issues.

First things first.

Unless the collapse of the country’s economic system is desirable we are headed the wrong direction… fast.  Cloward and Piven will tell you it is and everything is going perfectly.

This is the moment.

It’s happening right in front of you.

It will not become any clearer.

You’re being played…

Just ask the common folks who considered themselves “enlightened democratic socialists” in Europe.

Better stock up on your Port, Chianti and Champagne while you can.


155,000,000 Dependants

Or… The 47%.

I’ve scheduled an appointment with my CPA to discuss my 2012 Tax deductions.

I will now be claiming 155,000,000 dependants.

I’m also going to look into writing off their:

Food.

Clothing.

Education.

Transportation.

Medical Expenses.

(And this year… Phones and Homes.)

I’m not entirely sure but I expect I could have some carry-over loss for 2013.

I would also like to claim day-to-day living expenses for my dependants, considering they are all living under my “roof” so to speak,  I don’t think there is a provision for it… but I’m going to check.

Can’t be too careful!

I never want to take tax deductions for anything I don’t deserve, so if I happen to attract the attention of the IRS I’m ready to explain that it is my deepest wish all of my Dependants move out from under my wing and become productive, useful members of our society.  Everyday I try to lead by example and teach them the ways of the world.  Sometimes my youngest ones seem to get it, sometimes they don’t.  I’ve almost given up on my oldest.  But, I only wish for them the best with all of my heart.

The only reason I share this is tax time is just around the corner… and I expect an unusual amount of paperwork could be associated with my taxes this year.

This might be the case for you as well.

But remember, family comes first.  So be sure to take make some quality time with your family for the Holidays.  May be five minutes for each person you provide care for…

That should carry me through the year 9384.

Better get started on both.
