Who knew H&R Block had joined the TEA Party?

The least known provision is that every household receives a monthly prebate (prepayment) that covers all the taxes that will be collected on the poverty level of the household.

The worst part is that it doesn’t demand that the sales receipt display how much of your money the porcine pols have plundered from your purse to pay their pals and pander to the polls.

Have you ever wondered about the purposes behind the degradation of the American education system? Here is one.

Every New Year brings a bevy of stupid new nanny state bans.

In Los Angeles supermarket chains can no longer give out free plastic grocery bags made of plastic. From now on, either bring your own or shell out 10 cents per sack.

Illinois — a state so well-run that is faces billions of dollars in unfunded pension obligations – now bans anyone under the age of 18 from going to a tanning salon. Residents also face a $50 fine for flicking a cigarette butt in the street or on the sidewalk too.

Delaware has banned the sale, possession, or eating of shark fins. New York City has banned horse-drawn carriage rides, and Major Leauge Baseball has banned home plate collisions.

The list is long and grim and seemingly endless but the worst nanny state ban going into effect in 2014 is almost surely the federal prohibition on the production of new incandescent light bulbs.

This ban was seven years in the making. The 2007 Energy Bill — enthusiastically signed by then President George W Bush — effectively killed incandescents light bulbs via energy efficiency mandates. 100 and 75 watt bulbs were phased out in previous years and now cheap 60 and 40 light bulbs — once the very symbol of a good idea — verboten in the Land of the Free.

Before the incandescent bulbs go out for good, it\’s worth shining a light on its cause: The ban was pushed by light bulb makers eager to up-sell customers on longer-lasting and much more expensive halogen, compact fluourescent, and LED lighting. When customers balked at paying more for home lighting, General Electric, Sylvania, and Philips did what corporate behemoths always do: They turned to the government for regulation that rigs the market in their favor.

So when you throw out that last 40 cent 40 Watt light bulb, remember that you\’re not just tossing out a piece of history, but a piece of what used to be a freer market.

The key phase is “…don’t allow for artificial manipulation of the supply”. That and “Audit the Fed” are the two phrases that are most likely to cause stuttering, stammering, apoplexy and strokes among the politicrat rodents that have stolen our country (and soon our freedom) to sacrifice at the alter of their god Marx.

I had thought they were extinct!!! I guess just on the endangered species list.

Rep. Louie Gohmert calls ‘em like he sees ‘em and has a clear view of those traitorous go along to get along scum that have infected the Republican party since before George Wallace said (and echoed by Ross Perot, as well as Ralph Nader), “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Republicans and Democrats.” Nearly all professional politicians are so enamoured by their status of faux nobility the assume “the divine right of kings” and think more as rulers than servants, thus the poll that shows 60% of their “subjects want to throw ever last one of them out! There wasn’t that much popular support for neither the French nor the Russian revolutions.

I love the reference to RomneyCare but wished he the other “it’s my turn” media darling, aisle-crossing, self centered demopublican that preceded Romney in the “I can be a Dhimmicreten, too!” presidential election sweepstakes.

The Social Security Administration has begun warning the public it cannot guarantee full benefit payments if the debt ceiling isn’t increased.

When asked by the public, the agency is notifying beneficiaries that “Unlike a federal shutdown which has no impact on the payment of Social Security benefits, failure to raise the debt ceiling puts Social Security benefits at risk,” according to a person familiar with the agency directive.

The warning was assembled after the agency consulted with the Treasury Department, which would play a lead role in determining how the government handles payments if the borrowing limit isn’t raised soon.

“Our employees started receiving questions from the public, so the agency worked with Treasury to provide an answer they could use when asked about the debt ceiling by the public,” a Social Security Administration spokesman said.

In 1937 the Roosevelt administration had to defend the Social Security Act and did so by stating before the Supreme Court that the inanely named FICA was simply a tax with no contract of benefits accruing to the payers and thus legal under government’s taxing authority. Sounds ;ike Justice Roberts” reasoning in the Obamacare fiasco, doesn’t it? The 1937 case was .

Obama is trying to fulfill the Cloward-Piven Stategy which is actually a blueprint for despotic communism. The idea of a equal living income for everone has a major flaw, who pays?

Bill Whittle thinks that President Obama is trying to deliberately hurt America through the questionable sequester budget cuts. Why would the President of the United States try to punish the nation he has sworn to protect?

Also just for fun let me add these from the goals of the American Communist Party as reported in the Congressional Record in 1963:

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
