Nobody's Opinion

Nobody’s Fool:Super-Congress

 

 Nobody’s Fool

 

The World’s elite politicians are very, very clever. Yesterday, the EU was bailed out once again. The stock market will rise for a while, and then crash again. Sometime, the inevitable will have to come. All leaders of the Western world, will have to tell their huddled masses that, “Hey, we need to raise taxes to pay back the money. We need to balance the budget.” 

This means, pensions will be cut, (not theirs of course) wages will come down, and taxes will need to be raised…across the board. This suggestion has come from our Super-Committee— a committee which is unconstitutional so therefore every single man and woman on that board cannot be sued for what they are about to do. Since the committee is by-partisan, neither party will take the blame for anything they do. They are an elite panel, without a check or balance anywhere. The Supreme Court should have instantly made the whole lot of them illegal according to the Constitution– but gee…where’s the outrage?

Did they invent this super-committee becasue both parties don’t get along, or because neither party wanted to be blamed for the upcoming high taxes?


“Where in the world did that come from?” Ron Paul demanded after the Super committee idea was floated. “And where is that going to lead to? That is monstrous. I keep looking and I can’t find any place in the Constitution where we have the authority to create such a creature as the super Congress.”
Like I said…very clever, our Congress, for setting up a scapegoat to take the “pain” of what they intent to do. After all….it’s like no-fault divorce. Nobody gets blamed. Everyone can get re-elected.

The first place they will cut, is health care for the old. When Obama said, “the old should just let go” he was talking about not giving them the medical care available to prolong their lives. And while they sold it on keeping people alive on life support, it could be a simple cancer screening test that they will deny you. Obama IS a Marxist.  
That’s a Marxist’s mantra…the individual makes way for the good of the many. Even the Bushes ingnored Terry Schiavo as she lay dying. It’s all about where to cut…it’s all about the money. The Republicans see the writing on the wall too.

Any call for taxing the rich (an idea fronted by billionaire Warren Buffett and adopted by grateful Democrats) will naturally result in further eroding the middle class. Most of the “rich” who will fall under the gun (literally) are millionaires who own businesses that provide most of the jobs in this country. Billionaires and the mega-rich like the Rockefellers and the Gates don’t pay taxes – they sock their wealth into foundations.—Prison Planet

Yes, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet protected their vast fortunes long ago, with the GATES foundation. As does Bill Clinton. Why do you think all the sports figures have foundations? Because they are kind, loving, and want to give back to the world?

Nobody suggests we all start our own foundations, to hide  our money from taxes just like Warren and Bill. Why not? We could call it the Nobody’s Foundation, for all those nobodies in the world who want to hide their assets from the governments.

Okay, I’m a fool…but Congress? They don’t earn the big bucks for nothing…

    • Better late than never.

      The quotation and the man:

      “No man in the country is under the smallest obligation, moral or other, so to arrange his legal relations to his business or property as to enable the Inland Revenue to put the largest possible shovel in his stores. The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer’s pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue”

      James Avon Clyde, Lord Clyde KC DL (1863 – 1944)
      Lord Justice General and Lord President of the Court of Session from 1920 to 1935

  2. MUCH better type size, Joy.
    :)

    I don’t get the thrust of Warren Buffet’s complaint. There is nothing stopping him and his mates paying more tax than they are obliged to by Law. So, let him start the ball rolling and pay more tax.

    The Greeks, back at the dawn of Democracy, and the Romans back not quite so far, took great pride in paying their taxes. It was the ‘mark’ of a wealthy chap that he was seen to be contributing to the public good. If the tax was not due they would ‘endow’. I would be quite happy enough to praise all the Rich who donated their extra taxes and have their names printed in newspapers and read out on the TV news. Heck, we can even have the Olympic games paid for by such worthies.

    As for minimising the taxes that are due, there was a famed Judge in the UK (whose fame is insufficient for me to remember his name) who said, in effect, ” No man has the duty to help the taxman put a shovel into his stores. He is obliged to pay what is due and and has no obligation to pay more than the law requires”.

    If there are means for exemptions then the remedy (if that is what it is) can easily be found by changing those exemptions.

    Clearly the taxation systems common in the western nations are not up to the demands placed upon the public purse. Income tax is a very recent obligation that frankly makes no sense at all. It has been around for less than 150 years and has always been contentious.

    The banking and ‘credit’ systems make no sense either. They were invented way back when there were less than one billion folk around. Most people didn’t have the means even to use a bank, let alone credit. We now have 7 times as many people and probably less sense. Banks once acted as a savings place, a ‘storage’ of money for savers and a source of Capital for Entrepreneurs. Now the bank is simply an International Gambling den. Gambling with other people’s money SHOULD be a crime. Inventing electronic money out of thin air should be a crime.

    Even more clear is the need for a reduction in the demands placed on the public purse. Most Governments have an obligation to spend public monies as deemed fit and determined by the People, but most Governments also make up their own determinations and spend the public’s money without proper mandate. That SHOULD be a crime.

    The specific issues of Policy, such as Universal Health Care is a matter for the People to determine. My own view is that our medical meeds can occasionally be far in advance of our individual ability to pay. Our medical ‘means’ advance by the week and simple equality of human right requires that it is available to all when needed. Governments CAN be in the best position to oversee the provision, just as we enable Government to oversee and direct Defence.

    That is another complete friggin’ mess, (defence) so don’t let me get started on that !!
