Trade Fedzilla for fair tax
by Ted Nugent
Simpler is always better, especially as it pertains to Fedzilla, whose mission is to complicate things to such a degree that ordinary Americans no longer understand how our government works or who it works for.
Keeping Americans baffled and confused allows Fedzilla to continue to gorge itself on gross inefficiency and run up a tab totaling trillions of dollars. Fedzilla is a punk and we the taxpayers the punkees.
We must simplify government whenever we can. The most grotesque example of something needing simplification is the U.S. tax code, which is the largest and most confusing book in the history of mankind. It totals roughly 50,000 pages and 8 million words. If anything about Fedzilla needs simplifying and has the overwhelming support of Americans, it is surely our classic, outrageous and unreasonable IRS tax code.
No one understands our tax code, including the IRS. Call 50 different IRS tax specialists with the same question and chances are you will get 50 different answers. Fedzillacrats have intentionally made it this way.
Not only does our tax code need to be clearer and easier to understand, it needs to be much more fair. Everyone, rich and poor, has skin in this game. It is unfair to expect or demand that 10 percent of the U.S. population pay 70 percent of the income taxes.
If you are a soulless bloodsucker and actually like Fedzilla in all its glowing inefficiency, then you ought to feed the beast with your tax dollars and not expect others to pay your fair share. If not, do America a favor and set sail for Cuba where you can join other commies on their commie colony of hopeless dependency.
Good stuff. Go. Read.
8 million words. Did you know there are less than 800,000 words in the Bible?
Federal contractors receiving money for projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)—the $862 billion economic stimulus law President Barack Obama signed in February 2009—have been encouraged and, in some cases, required by the administration to post signs that say their work is funded by that specific act.
I’ll be perfectly honest….every time I see those signs, I want to shoot ‘em! The signs….not any person. (just wanted to get that straight) Encouraging putting them up is one thing….DEMANDING it is something else. Are our tax dollars being used for Obama’s ego? Of course!
The Department of Housing and Urban Development recommended one model sign that included these words: “Funded By: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act/ Barack Obama, President.”
Do we really need to be reminded of just who we have to thank for our economic woes? Not really. I think we all know who is responsible. Or, at least, we SHOULD be. He sure has no problem, what so ever, of spending money that isn’t his demanding that everyone sees his name as we are reminded of the billions of taxpayer dollars being put to use on projects, like roads that didn’t need to be repaired.
Obama administration officials have said the signs are designed to increase government transparency by showing people how recovery dollars are being spent. But some Republicans are concerned that the signs are a use of taxpayer money to promote President Obama.
They can play that ‘recovery’ nonsense over and over, but it’s become quite obvious that they are full of ka-ka.
In the meantime, Republicans on the oversight committee have gone directly to the states in an effort to determine costs. Thus far, they have found that Ohio has spent $1 million on ARRA signs and Illinois has spent $640,000, Schock said. ABC News reported in July that a stimulus funded project at Washington, D.C.’s Dulles Airport has a 10-foot-by-11-foot ARRA sign that cost $10,000. ABC also reported that Pennsylvania spent $157,000 on ARRA signs.
I wonder how many low income children could have been fed a hot breakfast with that money?
How many of President Obama’s signs have been posted at highway projects around the country? “That’s a question for the states,” a Federal Highway Administration spokesman told CNSNews.com. “It would be like asking how many stop signs are out there. We don’t know.” But the spokesman did confirm that the signs themselves are paid for by Recovery Act dollars.
Yep. Our tax dollars hard at work, promoting a POTUS, who, hopefully, will be out of a job in a couple of years.
….if this be one of the ‘prayers’ that will be taught in the Ground Zero mosque, IF they build it?
Former White House communications director director Anita Dunn on Tuesday launched a furious attack against Republicans who have criticized President Obama’s remarks on the Ground Zero mosque, labeling the GOP as the party of intolerance.
Coming from a communist, I’m going to take that as a compliment. While not technically a Republican, I’m more than likely to side with freedom than I am with the slavery that she and her cohorts have been trying to push on us!
We are instructed to fight against evil. What could be more evil than a pedophile/murder cult? Just because the libtard Democrats promote evil, in all forms, doesn’t mean we have to roll over and take it!

After two years of work, the Sharia Index Project’s working team of Sunni and Shi’a legal scholars from Morocco to Indonesia achieved consensus on a final structure on philosophy, methodology, and approach to providing the general public, opinion leaders, and state officials in both the Muslim and Western worlds with an Islamic legal benchmark for measuring “Islamicity” of a state.
From a 2005 American Thinker post, Top ten reasons why sharia is bad for all societies:
10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped.
9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives.
8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye.
7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off.
6. Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated.
5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed.
4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death.
3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non—Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself.
2. Islam orders apostates to be killed.
1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad.
Read the whole thing. LONG, but quite informative!
Christians were given a New Testament, a new Covenant, with God. Many of these ‘rules’ are in the Old Testament, but Christ came, died, and rose again, taking our sins with Him. We are forgiven. We live our lives to please Him, not some bag of bones who raped children, enslaved nations, and murdered the innocent, and continues to command his followers to do the same.
For any official of a free nation to promote the building of such centers, any where in this country, is an abomination to those who lost loved ones, not just on this soil, but in foreign lands.
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Not bowing to Mohammed or anyone other than God.

After thought: Dunn is not an “attack dog”. She’s a yappy little lapdog that should be swatted with a rolled up newspaper.
