Ham Sandwiches, Sausage Rolls, and Halal

The headlines are reading, “Ham Sandwiches and Sausage Rolls May Be Banned from Office Kitchens for Being Offensive.”

I’m sorry, but I find the very idea of this nonsense offensive, not to mention a direct violation of my Constitutional rights.

First, this is America, not Nazi Germany.  I’ll eat anything I please.  Our nation is all about freedom, not restriction.

Second, I will not cow-tow to a mindless cult that calls itself a “religion” while continuing to slaughter hundreds of millions of my fellow humans in the name of Allah (Satan) at an ever-increasing pace.

The only restrictions we have — or ever should have — in the United States of America involve measurable physical and hamfinancial harm.  Our courts have repeatedly ruled that “offenses” exist largely, if not only, in the eye of the beholder, and that the individual accused of causing an offense is not responsible.  It’s up to the beholder to not be offended, particularly when I exercise my freedom of speech under the First Amendment to our Constitution by eating a ham sandwich.  No one has a “right” to use their being offended as an excuse to force other people to change their behavior.

Decency laws are a different matter, which is why 99% of America’s beaches remain “swimsuits required.”

Do we need a “Right to Exercise Our Constitutional Rights” bill?  No, as that would be absurd.  We might, however, require a ham“Freedoms in the Workplace” bill that prohibits employers from banning certain foods just because those foods might “offend” someone.

In fact, I seem to recall my doctor telling me that I need to continue eating ham sandwiches and sausage for my health.  Yes, yes…  I’m reasonably sure he mentioned that a while back…

If someone is allergic to peanut butter, it’s up to them to bring suitable food from home in order to prevent contact with food items containing peanuts.

In precisely the same vein, if someone is offended by ham sandwiches and sausage rolls, it’s up to them to bring suitable food from home in order to prevent contact with food items containing pork.

In closing, I strongly encourage you and other members of Congress to resist the severely biased drivel that comes from the halal“interfaith” group CoExist House.  It’s largely a pro-Islamic group around with a few overly politically correct and misguided individuals have aligned themselves.  They have absolutely zero qualms about trampling our Constitutional rights through the advancement of their highly anti-American agenda.

U.S. Tax Code: BROKEN – Time for the Fair Tax!

High Time for the Fair Tax:  Keep Your Entire Paycheck!

 – Everyone Pays His or Her Fair Share
 – Pay Tax Only on What You Spend
 – The IRS is No Longer Necessary

 

Before we examine what is meant by “Fair Tax,” let’s first take a look at why it’s necessary, as well as how it would greatly benefit our nation:

Acording to National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olsen, “The U.S. Tax System’s most serious problem is the 4-million-word code’s excessive complexity that makes it tough for taxpayers to comply with and difficult for the government to administer.” – Source.

The cost to both individuals and corporations is immense:  $168 Billion in 2010.  Most individuals aren’t equipped to handle it, and many opt out, falling off the grid, or worse, winding up behind bars.  Corporations divert a large chunk of their profits to minimize their tax liability, even to the point of reorganizing themselves around the tax code instead of focusing on productivity.

Our tax code has grown way beyond a leash or muzzle.  It’s become a ball and chain, so much so that most corporations have expanded operations into other countries simply because it’s far cheaper.  Those countries benefit, while Americans lose.

Taxes are are necessary to pay for services common to the community as a whole.  When the burden of taxes becomes too great, however, they are a disservice to the community as a whole.  Then the act of merely calculating the right amount of tax becomes so complicated that it costs a significant portion of a corporation’s or individual net income, the system is broken.  It has become a “parasitic expense,” one that doesn’t contribute anything towards increasing productivity or revenue, or even the welfare of the community as a whole, but instead merely sucks the life blood out of human effort.

Our Constitution mentions the word “tax” six times, four of which are relevant to the Fair Tax concept:

  1. “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers…” – Article I, Section 2
  2. “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts, and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States…” – Article I, Section 8
  3. “No Capitation, or other direct Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.” – Article I, Section 9
  4. “No Tax or Duty shall be laid on Articles exported from any State.” – Article I, Section 9.

If you thoroughly examine each provision in the Constitution against what is happening today, you’ll see that personal income tax is NOT Constitutional, regardless of how the Supreme Court twisted their ruling to make it sound otherwise.

If you examine how much people and corporations are actually taxes (net effective), you see there’s plenty of room for the Fair Tax to replace all other taxes and provide the same measure of income to the federal government.

If you consider the cost of implementing the current tax code, you’ll find that the IRS budget of $11.8 billion alone is a mere drop in the bucket compared to how much money people and businesses spend on handing taxes.  When you realize the entire tax industry is parasitic, that is, it doesn’t actually generate wealth at all, but merely shifts it one segment of society to the other, you’ll realize it isn’t healthy at all.  It boils down to a protection racket.  Pay tax people to keep you out of trouble, when the real issue involves such a grossly over-complicated tax code in the first place.

If you examine the federal budget for other parasitic, non-wealth-building waste, you’ll find at least one third of the federal government’s $3.504 trillion is parasitic in nature.  That is, it does little, and adds nothing to the overall health or wealth of our nation.

If we ever did implement the Fair Tax, a mandatory cap would be required.  That’s necessary, given the Congressional tendency to add “just another half a percent…”  Well, that’s 10% in 20 years, so how about a big fat NO and a max at 10%.  If they can’t make do with 10%, they’re not doing their job.  Fire them and give someone else a chance.

Do You Know Ed Mezvinsky?

He was born January 17, 1937, but you’re probably saying, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?” and “Why should I care?”

Bear with me for a minute, as the answer has to do with Hillary Clinton’s run for the 2016 elections, and a great deal more.  The “more” part will boggle your mind.

Ed Mezvinsky is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States Ed MezvinskyHouse of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.  He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.

He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.

He and the Clintons were friends and very politically intertwined for many years.

Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.

In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.

In March 2001, Ed Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.  He had embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams (yes, he’s “that guy”).  He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.

After serving less than three-quarters of that time, he was released in April 2008.  He remains on federal probation.  To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.

About now you are saying, “So what!”

Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.  Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.  Chelsea married his son.

Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5Chelsea Clinton million dollar NYC apartment (after being married in George Soros’ mansion).

Has anyone heard any mention of any of this in any of the media?  No?

Gee…  I wonder why…

If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in-law, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.  The liberal rags, however, are owned by the same corrupted cabal to which the Clintons, the Mezvinskys, and Soros belongs.

People are already talking about Hillary as our next President, and there is a distinct possibly Chelsea will run in the future.  The Hillary Clintonheadlines are already proclaiming, “How Hillary Clinton won the 2014 midterms.”

Apparently, the cycle of the rich and corrupt never ends.

The Democrat’s ongoing scheme is simple:  Promise anything to the masses in order to keep being reelected, then abuse the power of their office to line their own pockets, the pockets of their friends, and the pockets of people and companies who funded their campaigns — at your expense.

Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular, yet Democrats who are repeatedly suckered into voting for them keep wondering when they’re going to get their slice of the pie.

The answer is, “Never, so long as you keep allowing yourself to be suckered in to voting for Democrats.”  If the Democrats have you on a hook, and want to keep you on that hook, the only only solution is to get off the hook.  Stop voting Democrat.

Kill The Congressional Pork Before The Pork Kills U.S.

By far, the greatest Congressional threat to our freedoms is the pork they’re allowed to shove into each and every bill, even if it has absolutely nothing to do with the bill.  They do so to curry political favor, but it’s at our expense, to the tune of millions, if not billions of dollars for each and every member of Congress.

It’s why I fully support a line-item veto.  It wouldn’t matter if the President is rampantly conservative or rampantly liberal – he’d take heat for allowing pork to pass, and the publicity would help curb pork from Congress.  Ultimately, it would lead to a 28th Amendment along the lines of “One issue per bill, no exceptions.”

Our nation was founded by disciplined men, many of whom were lawyers.  The idea of stuffing a bill with pork was as foreign to them then as trying to argue a client out of a parking ticket in divorce court would be today.  The judge would laugh, if not throw them out of court.  Then, as now, the presiding judge would toss the motion as inappropriate, without question.  We need a similar restriction against Congress tossing our hard-earned dollars out the window on JUNK.

Somewhere along the line, stuffing good, decent bills with pork became a favorite pastime of Congress.  The vast majority of bills signed by Presidents over the last thirty years are stuffed with costly measures having absolutely nothing to do with the bill, that benefit very few people, but are paid for by all of us, either directly or indirectly.  To that end, I am stirring up a grass-roots movement to put the money-spending power of Congress back in the hands of the people.  Out nation is in MASSIVE debt, and it will not recover until the massive leaks through which Congress is shoving our money are plugged.  This isn’t a trickle.  We’re talking about Titanic-sized gushes and America will suffer the same fate as the Titanic if these gaping holes aren’t plugged.  Our country went from $9 Trillion to $17 Trillion in debt in just four years.  There’s only 310 Million people in the U.S.,  only half of which have jobs.  Do the math, and one way or another, that’s more than $100 THOUSAND dollars out of everyone’s pockets.

That’s far more than a down-payment on a mortgage.  It’s one third to one half of a very nice home.  It’s the difference between being stuck with rent the rest of your life and living out the American dream.  It’s the difference between owning and being owned.  Those who think “the government will just take care of us” are just stupid.  The point of this whole article is that the government is BROKEN.  If it’s not fixed, and soon, the government won’t be taking care of anyone ever again.  Many people will starve, and yes, that’s “starve to death.”  They may say, “That’ll never happen here!  This is America!”  The same was said by the hundreds millions of starving people throughout the 20th Century, who also lived under governments much like that of the United States of America.  THEY’RE DEAD, and not because of time, but because they had no food, as a direct result of their governments inability to govern themselves, much less the country.

More government is less, while less government is more.  It’s an axiom our founding fathers knew very well, and which they built into our Constitution, the document which both establishes our government while strictly limiting it’s power and authority.  Several years later, they saw fit to nail the lid on the coffin of tyranny by crafting the Bill of Rights, the first ten Amendments to the Constitution which further limited the scope and authority of the federal government, and reserved any and all powers not expressly given the federal government to the States or to the People.

So:  Why are you reading this?  Simple:  YOU need to contact your Congressman NOW, so that thirty years down the road you might still have a penny to your name.  Just Google their name.  If that doesn’t work, just go to Who Is My Representative and enter your zip code.  You can find your Senators, here.
