Tea For Two

If a government is large enough to give you everything what you want

it is large enough to take everything you have.

-Davy Crockett

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance,

and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

-Winston Churchill

Predictions In 1910 About Income Tax Results - ALL True! Subscribe to comments to this posting

"A hand from Washington will be stretched out and placed upon every man's business; the eye of the federal inspector will be in every man's counting house . . . . The law will of necessity have inquisical features, it will provide penalties, it will create complicated machinery. Under it, men will be hauled into courts distant from their homes. Heavy fines imposed by distant and unfamiliar tribunals will constantly menace the taxpayer. An army of federal inspectors, spies, and detectives will descend upon the state." ------- Virginia House Speaker Richard E. Byrd, 1910, predicting what would happen if a federal income tax became law.

    These predictions have obviously become true. Of course there is that old saying you have not seen nothing yet :-). People are going to be very surprised when they find out after January 1 that they will have to pay taxes on the sale of their homes to help pay for their free healthcare. What I am really upset about is that Obama has figured out that by allowing the economy to go over the Clift, he can mingle the new taxes that the middle class is going to receive from the affordable healthcare act, with the increase the middle class will receive because of the expiration of the Bush tax cuts. Doing this could be able to blame the rise in the cost of healthcare on the Republicans for not giving in to his demands to increase taxes on the rich.
    From what we have been told his plan is to come back next year and propose a tax cut for the middle class. The trouble is who will not be any way that they can give a tax cut large enough to the middle class completely eliminate the increase in their taxes caused by Obama care.
    During the Obama campaign he like to say that the Republicans drove us into a ditch, and we should not give them back the wheel because they are the ones that drove us here. At this time Mr. Obama has control of the vehicle and is the one driving it over the cliff. Apparently he believes that as long as yours one Republican left in office he can point to that Republican and blame him for anything that goes wrong in this country.

    I just wonder what the liberals think is going to happen when they are done squeezing every dime out of the working people that they can. Do they believe that they can just turn on the printing presses and watch money fall out of the air? Don't they understand that the people working will see that their neighbors are living as well as they are without ever having to leave the house? Don't they understand that once the working people figure this out that they will try to get on the other side of the equation?
    I remember hearing stories about in the old Soviet Union, about food setting on the docks and at the train stations writing because they had no one to move it. In this scheme of socialism there is apparently a point where it is more productive to stand in line for your freebies than it is to work or go tried to produce something.
