The “T” word is out of the closet


I’m a little glad that the “tax” word is finally out in the open, but disagree with it being used as the excuse for unconstitutional ObamaCare, or any other scheme of government.

But since it is out and just happens to come before the 4th of July, maybe Obama should come out again and tell us straight out:

To call for renaming July 4th “National DEPENDENCE Day“.
Why not? Its what they’ve they’ve given us.

That would be much more fitting and honest. (not that I’d expect his honesty)

When the government knows, and is given clear signal from the High Court, that it can force anything on us and demand we do anything it wants, as long as they call it a tax; shouldn’t he formerly declare and celebrate our unlimited Dependence?

    Bull,
    Right. Now we’re under the gun of being taxed if we don’t buy something the feds want us to buy. Take, for example, the Chevy Volt, nobody really wants them so couldn’t the feds order us to buy one and tax us if we don’t. The car costs $41,000 and people don’t want to spend that much money on a clunker. So, perhaps the Deviant one and congress can tax us say $30,000 for not getting one.
    I don’t even feel like we have “independence” any longer. The feds can reach into any part of our lives. This is not what the founders wanted and I’m sure they are rolling over in their graves.

      My mind overtaxed following complex gov schemes, but they give a credit for the 41k car, and your taxes go up due to all the other rackets they are running, meaning you probably end up with bigger net tax bill than before plus a car with a questionable resale value, and 40k dollars light. Great selling points. And lots of new regs to follow under the new mandate costing time and money dropping you net income(again).

      Besides, now that he got ‘runway clearance’ how many more forced programs could he come up with in another term, all with a new tax to enforce them? Hey, this also could make the IRS more powerful than the DOJ. Maybe they will find a solution to that one. It goes on and on, where it stops no one knows. Right, it doesn’t.

        With the full taxing that Roberts so unjustly and unconstitutionally allowed I figure under the Deviant many more of these types of taxes will come down on us. I see no end either.

      Pepp,

      I forgot, yea they could tax us for not buying one and give it to the ones who will. Heck what can’t they do? After the Kelo, I thought what will top this, and voila, here it is. So they already decided our property isn’t really ours, but still tax you for it. Or find someone to pay more. Now everything else is subject to the gov whim or IRS. I was thinking the same thing when I went to visit west point Sunday.(hadn’t been there)I was just thinking what would they think of this? When ol George Washington said about Benedict Arnold, “whom can we trust now”, I’m thinking the same thing. Except its pretty clear, none of them can be trusted. Its amazing how they turned us on our heads and shake the change from our pockets. And then they’ll control our healthcare too. I guess Obummer wantsyou to get on his list or suffer and pay up, or die. They don’t seem to care which. I suppose they’ll call that our “Choice”.

        Right, our choices will be eliminated under the Deviant One’s dictatorship.
        What’s funny is the administration is running around on every show they can saying Obamacare is not a tax. So if it’s not a tax, then they cannot implement it. They are very confused themselves. The Commerce Clause was eliminated for them to push this through. So if the devil wants to say this is not a tax, but a fine, it was ruled the federal government cannot force states through fines and threats. So which is it? What a much up if you ask me.

          Pepp: You’re exactly right. Did you hear the aproval of the court dropped too? Funny he did it to appease the left and I guess Supreme ‘likeabiliy’. He ends up with a few fair weather friends on the left and Court aproval tanking. Didn’t they say he is brilliant? Hmmm.

          How about the left: lecturing the Right not to “politicize” the court…while they POLITICIZE the court? These people aren’t too bright, any of them, for the biggest superpower in the world.

          Almost felt as if juan McCain ws running the Court or something. I figure the Leaky Leahy lecture did it. Has he no spine? No, retract, hasn’t anybody the spine to stand up to the left? The evidence is there to expose them.

          Pepp: What a mud pit for sure. I’m not sure if he didn’t undercut the states case against it as well…while seeming to be protecting it. This is going to leave a stain, any way you look. If he would hae sided with Kennedy and conservative end what would they do? Would Ginsberg get up and lead a walkout?

    Very good post. There are many who say since the government can now “tax” individuals for not engaging in commerce, a mandatory tax on individuals who do not purchase a firearm should be implemented! One commenter on freerepublic.com purposed, “In order to help lower the costs of law enforcement that effect everyone, every able bodied male between the ages of 21 and 65 will, by Jan 1, 2013, arm himself with a handgun and 50 rounds of ammunition or pay a $50 fine.”

    What’s to stop them for taxing individuals who do not exercise every week? Or eat McDonalds more than twice a week? Or watch “too much” TV?

    National Dependence Day is a great way of putting it. All of us are more dependent on the than ever before. God help us.

      Sam, all excellent points. Sad…nothing is to stop them. I’m sure Gov is already planning. But seems like Bloomberg on steroids, and I bet hnay Bloomberg is smiling…plus the revenue enhancement potential. We don’t have lives just taxes. Then I’m sure the death tax will be in overdrive too. (no matter what they say) Thanks, its outragious.

    Good post. I do agree with Sam. A non-purchase of firearms tax. Ought to work.

      Yes, Clyde, that’s right on target and…. just maybe working in the private sector, so anyone working in the Pubic sector has a hefty surcharge (their choice you know) to cover some of the table fat they lap up every day — not to mention the emotional distress they cause the rest of us.
