In 2009, roughly 47% of households, or 71 million, will not owe any federal income tax, according to estimates by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.
Some in that group will even get additional money from the government because they qualify for refundable tax breaks.s
The ranks of those whose major federal tax burdens net out at zero -- or less -- is on the rise. The center's original 2009 estimate was 38%. That was before enactment in February of the $787 billion economic recovery package, which included a host of new or expanded tax breaks.

Is it like murder murder or robbery robbery or yo yo? Why do all these liberals want him to skate on this?
He gave a 13 year old a alcoholic beverage, Quaaludes and then stuffed himself into every hole she possessed while she struggled to get him off her. In NYS that's Rape 1st degree and Sodomy 1st degree - both Class B Violent Felony offenses each punishable by up to nine years in prison. Then throw on Criminal Sexual Act 1st Degree - another Class B Felony and a whole host of Class A Misdemeanors. That's a max 27 years in state prison.
This is not a minor thing and for so called Hollywood celebs to treat it as such is beyond belief. The only thing I can come up with is that Goldberg gave it up at 12 for a lot less than a trip to a jacuzzi and a few tastes of champagne. So to her it's no big deal - no "rape rape."

COMBAT! chronicles the activities of a squad of GI's that land in Normany on D-Day and fight their way across France and Germany. As the series was filmed in B&W, the producers had no problem using actual WWII footage to give the series a more authentic atmosphere. This series made the actor Vic Morrow famous.
I gotta admit, this was one of my favorite TV show when I was a kid and I was thrilled to hear the theme song again for the first time in over forty years. It was a blast recognizing other bit actors in the first scenes that I recognized from later movies; Tom Skerrit had such a minor role that he never even got his name in the credits.
Good grief these guys were so young... and as WWII had only been over for eighteen years when the series began, many of the older actors were most likely WWII vets.

This is what we can expect eventually if Obongo, Pellosi and Reid have their way.
It seems that Canada's public healthcare has gone to the dogs since you gotta be one to get quality health care within a reasonable amount of time,

I also remember walking up in the middle of the night hearing the fire sirens (used to summon our town's volunteer fire department) and worrying if the sirens were actually announcing a nuclear attack instead of a fire. I would lie in bed dreading the next fifteen minutes - fifteen minutes was all we had if an actual ICBM warhead was on its way. After twenty minutes or so I could try to get back to sleep knowing that I would not be dying from radiation poisoning that night.
Some of my classmates' dad's had installed bomb shelters in their backyards or made some kind of arrangement in their basements. We could walk by huge drums of emergency rations stored in the basements of our schools.
Israeli kids are already more than familiar with that scenario. The 1991 Iraqi War - Operation Desert Storm (aka the Iraqi Turkey Shoot) - introduced Israeli to SCUD ballistic missile bombardment initiated by a sick, sadistic son of a bitch who had no regard for the lives of others. How can you doubt the savagery of a man who tortures and murders his own people by gas and bullet? Whose mercy is gauged by whether or not you are fed headfirst into a chipper?
There is another man just as cruel who has replaced Saddam Hussein - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
He makes the same threats to destroy Israel.
He supports terrorism and is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and British soldiers and Israelis through munitions smuggled into Afghanistan, Iraq and the Gaza Strip.
He is preparing nuclear weapons.
He has been found in contempt of UN resolutions and international law numerous times by exporting munitions, refusing to allow UN inspectors to assess their nuclear weapons program and building uranium enrichment plants.
These actions occur in the nation of Iran and are applauded by Ahmadinejad:
- Use idle construction cranes to hang homosexuals.
- Shoot protesters.
- Kidnap, torture and rape their own citizens who criticize the government.
- Kidnap and imprison citizens of other nations who criticize the government.
Have we gone down this path before with another tyrant not even ten years ago?
Why do we allow these sadistic fiends to step foot in this country, UN status notwithstanding?
Why does Obongo ignore this?
The most damning statement regarding Obongo's "alleged" blindness/naivete is that even the French can see what is going on in Iran. Of course the MSM will not allow Teh One to be embarrassed in any shape, matter or form, so the news that French President Sarkozy mocks Obongo on the Irani issue is withheld from the American public. Just a sample of Sarkozy's quotes are here:
Thank God for the Internet and talk radio that allow us to discover the duplicity of our own government in enabling tyrants to impose their will on others. Of course that will have to end if Obongo and his democrats have their way.
“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.
“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.
“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,”
This is more of the elitists' attempts to destabilize the country and impose an oligarchy:
a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few. a form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons or in a dominant class or clique; government by the few...Obongo has trashed the economy, Wall Street, the banking/finance industry, we have lost 4 million jobs since he came to office but gained 25,000 government employees, there has been an unprecedented upsurge in domestic terrorist plots and now he is turning international security into another disaster. This is textbook communist tactics "Ideological Subversion" - destablize a country so that the people demand security at all cost, at any cost. There are four steps to this:
Unemployment is the worst in 60 years, many seniors have lost their life savings, the national media cannot be trusted, Congressional approval rating are nonexistent (demoralization).
The dollar is falling like a brick, we are threatened both internationally and domestically by terrorists , our schools/colleges are hotbeds of socialism, our culture is in the toilet - gays, gangs, greed and the worship of self - (destabilization).
I think Obongo and the dems are moving us right into crisis mode now. If Israel is attacked by a thermonuclear device, all bets are off.

We don't know if this is a suicide or a homicide and I pray that this is not a trend with our census workers. The census is mandated under Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 of the US Constitution and no attempt should be made to defeat the execution of this clause.
The body of Bill Sparkman, a 51-year-old part-time Census field worker and occasional teacher, was found Sept. 12 in a remote patch of the Daniel Boone National Forest in rural southeast Kentucky. The Census has suspended door-to-door interviews in rural Clay County, where the body was found, pending the outcome of the investigation.
Investigators are still trying to determine whether the death was a killing or a suicide, and if a killing, whether the motive was related to his government job or to anti-government sentiment.
Investigators have said little about the case. The law enforcement official, who was not authorized to discuss the case and requested anonymity, said Wednesday the man was found hanging from a tree and the word "fed" was written on the dead man's chest. The official did not say what type of instrument was used to write the word.
However there seems to be a historic trend in resisting attempts by the government to gather information about its citizens (we are citizens, not subjects) which I think is very healthy - to a point. Listen to the resignation of a census taker in the very first census taken in 1790.
The enumerators - as they were called - sometimes took their lives in their hands.
"Sir: I beg to report that I have been dogbit, goose-pecked, cowkicked, briar-scratched, shot at, and called every 'fowel' that can be tho't of. I have worked 12 days and made $2. I have had enough and I beg to resign my position as a census taker for Crittenden Township."
So wrote Roger Waite to a marshal of census enumerators for the State of Vermont on August 24, 1790 – the year of the first national census of the United States.
Many had never been enumerated before and were naturally suspicious of strangers coming around asking questions. Others, remembering the biblical reference to the head count for purposes of taxation at the time of the birth of Christ, often displayed a downright unfriendly attitude. Then still other citizens, recalling the plagues that befell the children of Israel following the enumeration made by King David, also refused to cooperate.
So when the enumerators persisted with their questioning, they were often lucky to get by with just a dog bite. In a sparsely settled area in Pennsylvania, there is one instance of an enumerator being killed.
There were various other reasons on the part of the population for the reluctance to answer questions, but in a 1909 publication issued by the U.S. Census Bureau, it is written that the most potent factor was the widespread belief that the census was connected with taxes.

I have been receiving many emails over the past few months about these attempts to impose draconian gun control measures. We can perhaps calm down a bit but still remain watchful over those who would deny us our 2nd Amendment rights.
Urban Legends on Gun Control Bills Continue to SurfaceIt seems urban legends about new gun-control bills are continuing to surface. The latest fallacy to cause concern is a bill, "SB 2099," that would allegedly require gun owners to list their firearms on their tax documents (and pay upward of $50 per gun owned).
There is no such bill. Also generating talk is HR 45, The Blair Holt Act. Sponsored by U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), HR 45 calls for, amongst other things, all handgun owners to submit to the federal government a formal application including: photo identification, fingerprints, medical and mental health records and a completed written firearm safety examine.
The legislation also mandates that a federal database be established of all firearm
sales and transfers. Though this legislation is real and NSSF is continuing to monitor it, industry and gun owners should not be concerned. HR 45 has no co-sponsors and is not a threat to become law.

Now that there are videos galore detailing ACORN's blatant criminal facilitation, that lying incompetent fool in the White House says this on ABC:
Like the clown didn't know what was going on with his long time enablers and partners in crime. I only hope that Obongo will be dragged down and immobilized by his association with that scandalous organization. I truly dread the next three years.
STEPHANOPOULOS: How about the funding for ACORN?
OBAMA: You know, f -- frankly, it's not really something I've followed closely. I didn't even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money.
While the UN is fear-mongering the rest of the world:
President Barack Obama said tougher financial regulations are needed worldwide to protect consumers, provide economic stability and prevent future crises.
[...]Obama said a central element to this regulatory overhaul is a new agency to oversee consumer products, including mortgages and credit cards.
It's a full court press peeps.
The swine flu pandemic could kill millions and cause anarchy in the world's poorest nations unless £900m can be raised from rich countries to pay for vaccines and antiviral medicines, says a UN report leaked to the Observer.
[...]Some officials within WHO believe, however, that this will not be enough. One said that richer countries were reluctant to pay out all of the money that was needed. "The downturn means that governments countries are reluctant to give," he said
These sonsabitches won't stop until they have their fingers in everyone's wallet so they can divy it up amongst corrupt politicians in every freaking country in the world..
This is all happening as the ACORN fiasco is still developing. It is a double feature matinee worthy of a family outing at the local theater. Pass the popcorn please. Better make that a super jumbo size with extra butter.
And best of all, it is a pirate double feature! The Democrats have attacked their own fleets, boarded their own ships and are now gleefully cutting their own throats.
As a minor featurette, two thugs were shot to death in North Syracuse during a home invasion. Of course the gun control freaks in the newspaper described the weapon as a "pistol-grip shotgun." I guess that makes it sound more lethal or something. I am sure the two dead thugs couldn't give a rat's ass right now what kind of grip was used. Anyway, the featurette has a happy ending so far as the local cops have classified the incident as justifiable homicides. Our Office will get it shortly so a grand jury can chew on it for awhile.
Gov. Paterson has responded to Obongo's invitation to wait out the next dance. I'm afraid Obongo ain't gonna like the 2010 NY dance card.
There's going to be a battle royal come primary time. I can only imagine that Guiliani is licking his chops and polishing his dancing shoes.
A defiant Gov. Paterson Sunday said he still plans to run for a full four-year term next year despite a stunning White House request that the poll-challenged governor step aside.
"I've said time and time again I am going to run for governor next year," Paterson said in Harlem. "My plans have not changed."[...]Paterson's job approval rating has hovered at around 20% for months and a poll just last week showed 65% of Democrats hoping someone else would run.

A vehicle at 15 mpg traveling 12,000 miles per year uses 800 gallons a year of gasoline.
A vehicle at 25 mpg traveling 12,000 miles per year uses 480 gallons a year.
So, the average clunker transaction will reduce US gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.
They claim 700,000 vehicles - so that's 224 million gallons/year.
That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil.
5 million barrels of oil is about ¼ of one day's US consumption.
And, 5 million barrels of oil costs about $375 million dollars at $75/bbl.
So, we all contributed to spending $3 billion to save $375 million.
How good a deal was that???
They'll probably do a great job with health care though!!
John J. Lotze
Actually the payback period is five years.
Do the math a little differently - use the price of gas rather than the price of a barrel of crude. Those 224 million gallons of gas at $2.70 a gallon cost $604.8 million. If the price of gas remains constant, the pay back is 4.96 years.

LSA Anaconda is at the Ballad Airport in Iraq , north of Baghdad
For those who are unaware, at a military theater, the National Anthem is played before every movie.
I recently attended a showing of 'Superman 3' here at LSA Anaconda. We have a large auditorium we use for movies, as well as memorial services and other large gatherings. As is the custom back in the States, we stood and snapped to attention when the National Anthem began before the main feature. All was going as planned until about three-quarters of the way through The National Anthem the music stopped.
Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-22 year-olds back in the States? I imagine there would be hoots, catcalls, laughter, a few rude comments; and everyone would sit down and call for a movie. Of course, that is, if they had stood for the National Anthem in the first place.
Here, the 1,000 Soldiers continued to stand at attention, eyes fixed forward. The music started again. The Soldiers continued to quietly stand at attention. And again, at the same point, the music stopped.. What would you expect to happen? Even here I would imagine laughter, as everyone finally sat down and expected the movie to start.
But here, you could have heard a pin drop. Every Soldier continued to stand at attention. Suddenly there was a lone voice, then a dozen, and quickly the room was filled with the voices of a thousand soldiers, finishing where the recording left off:
"And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave."
It was the most inspiring moment I have had here in Iraq . I wanted you to know what kind of Soldiers are serving you here. Remember them as they fight for you!
Pass this along as a reminder to others to be ever in prayer for all our soldiers serving us here at home and abroad. For many have already paid the ultimate price...
Written by Chaplain Jim Higgins
In addition Gov. Ahnuld Schwarzenator has made a recommendation that the California Attorney General's Office initiate the same kind of investigation.
Unfortunately Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown is the CA AG.
Over the past few days, I have seen a series of news stories regarding the ACORN organization that have concerned me greatly. As you may be aware, the most recent report has come out of San Bernardino. Given this, I believe it is appropriate that your office launch a full investigation into ACORN's activities in California. My administration stands ready to assist in any way necessary.
I just found out that ACORN gets to co-run some NYC schools! How would you like to have your children taught in a school run by these clowns?
This drooling anti-semite is practicing what is known as projection, "the unconscious act of denial of a person's own attributes, thoughts, and/or emotions, which are ascribed to the outside world..."
Because he is a racist, Carter denies this attitude in himself and ascribes the same vileness to those he feels threatened by.
For four years this pathetic excuse for a human was one of the most powerful men on the planet.
I wonder if the Democrats will throw themselves into another paroxysm of grief similar to that given for Commodore Buick? Hopefully we will find out real soon.

Big Government has the latest video of O'Keefe and Giles being entertained by an ACORN nutcase who admits to killing her husband and running a prostitution ring. If I was a cop (and I was) I'd be running this wacko's name through the wringer to see if there is any credence to her claims and sending my financial crimes investigators to seize their books.
And perhaps more high explosive fish are on their way to the beleaguered craft; the USS O'Keefe seems to have more torpedoes than originally thought. In addition, the republicans have launched their owm small task force that has ringed the ACORN with several salvos, the latest one from top Congressional leaders John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Dave Camp.
They wrote Obongo to ask that he immediately sever all ties between ACORN and the IRS. Seems that ACORN gets government funds to prepare tax returns for the po' peoples. In addition to that request, they are also asking that an investigation be commenced into whether or not ACORN is promoting tax fraud. This is the big one. This could truly put a lot of the ACORN crew deep in shark infested waters without life jackets as well as their clients.
The fireworks ain't over yet.

In Baltimore, Washington, DC, and again in New York City, ACORN employees were more than happy to advise O'Keefe and Giles on how to break the law. And Glenn Beck hints that there may be more videos forthcoming. What more could ACORN do on hidden video to piss people off? Sacrificing baby seals while serving snail darter hors d'oeuvres? Replacing 16w CFL's with 150w incandescants? Partial birth abortions of pregnant unicorns?
I believe that this change of senatorial discretion/direction may not have happened if not for the 2 million + people who decided to pay a visit to Washington DC last week. Kinda like Mom and Dad walking into your bedroom unexpectedly and catching you jacking off in your sister's training bra.
They did not expect those kinds of numbers.
They did not expect the passion, the commitment.
They did not expect the screaming matches at their usually boring August town hall meetings.
They did not expect the angry emails and phone calls.
They did not expect that Glen Beck would discover their secret handshake.
They did not expect the shitstorm that has erupted amidst their comfortable, pampered existence.
The pols are running scared.

As far as I am concerned, if we have to do this again, if the politicians in DC still won't listen that we are sick and tired of their corrupt practices, then next time we burn it all down.
In a related matter, News Busters quotes Newt Gringrich's explanation of the anger displayed by Republicans during Obongo's self serving television speech last week.
I can go through the president's speech and find a lot of things that I like. Then I go to the House Democratic bill and I don't find a single one of those things reflected in the legislation. Now, they, they literally had voted down efforts to make sure that health insurance only went to people who are legally in the United States. So they would have to go back and have very significant changes, which I think would split the Democratic caucus. And I think part of the reason you saw some, some real anger about the speech is he kept describing things that had been explicitly not put in the bill on the House side, and the House bill has no resemblance to the president's speech.

But their strangeness drives them to announce their presence amongst us. Like encountering an unexpected mirror in a dimly lit room, suddenly we are confronted with an image that we are not quite sure how to interpret. Is this familar? Do I know this person? What the hell?
The UK Telegraph has published a list of the twenty weirdest Craigslist advertisements from people like that; strange folk who have managed to thrust their twisted essence into our existence.
I am passing on just a few of them for your examination and enlightenment:
Sorta reminds me of the famous Botticelli painting of "Venus Rising From the Lasagna." And I do not want to know how he seasons his pasta or with what.
Woman to sit in my bath tub full of noodles, wearing a bathing suit (Pittsburgh, PA)
"I will pay you $1 to sit in my bathtub full of noodles while you wear a one piece bathing suit. I will not be home, nor will anyone else while you do this. I will leave the key for you, and you will sit at your leisure. DO NOT bring any sauce. I will season the pasta after I return home prior to dinner.
No issues here folks, let's keep moving - there's more.
And you can ride these burgers.
Wanted: Pony (Anchorge, Alaska)
"My kid is having a birthday coming up soon, and there'll be a lot of children around, so I figured I'd better get a pony. If you do have a pony you could sell, please contact me, and then immediately start putting barbecue sauce in it's bedding or add some Lawry's to it's salt lick - I like to marinade it early and long, so that the flavor is at it's peak by the time I take possession." If things work out well, I may contact you for other parties I'll be involved in; they kids can't tell the difference between ponies and burger, and usually they're a lot cheaper.
The next one is my personal favorite. I think the missing items have been kept as a trophy.
Now THAT was a magical evening 'cause the stars came out when the sun went down.
My teeth (Los Angeles, CA)
"I left my Dentures in your Silverado last night. I gave you my number but did not get yours. Please call me asap. I need my teeth. We met in the parking lot of Margarita Jones. Get back to me asap please. Thank you."
Craigslist has there own Strangelist (Best of Craigslist) that you can sample.
This gal is more pathetic than strange.
This next guy is just an immature asshole.
To the Hot Guy at Priest Lake on the 4th of July (Nashville, TN)
I have some interesting news. You are going to be a father, twice. I don't remember your name but I do remember your license plate number. I really hope you see this. You promised me that you would pull out, and clearly you didn't. You had brown hair and brown eyes, and had a very specific tattoo. My parents have kicked me out of the house, and I'm not making enough working at Waffle House. I was hoping that you could help me out. My car's not big enough for the three of us. If you are enough of a man to be responsible for your actions, contact me.
There is something wrong with this city. Seriously.
You were sitting a couple tables across from me. I was checking you out. You noticed. I winked. You rolled your eyes and left your table to talk to some guys at the bar. You left your purse hanging unattended on the back of your chair. I felt rejected, and a little pissed. You looked hungry. On my way out, I filled your purse with a vomit cocktail consisting of 1 part hamburger, 3 parts Miller Lites and 6 parts hot yellow foamy puke. If you had second thoughts after blowing me off, hit me back. I can't wait to hear from you!!!
I cut this last one off short. This freak even included photos. Quite frankly there are places where I do not need to go.
Paddle (Pittsburgh, PA - AGAIN!!)
That's right, a paddle. Lightly used. OK, not that lightly used. Not used on that many people, OK? Mostly just my ex's bottom. And a bit on mine. I tried using it on a really freaky girl a few weeks ago, and that was it - the magic was gone. There was nothing there. I thought paddles were exempt from the typical breakup sex toy uselessness, but I was terribly mistaken. This thing is dead to me. However, you can make my loss your gain! Seriously, despite my crippling emotional detachment from this paddle and my tendency to replace intimacy with alcohol, I can tell you this is one heck of a paddle.
Dang! People are so messed up! Just the addy for this one - it is just sooo wrong on sooo many levels.

A little while later I walked past the office again; there were a few more people watching the newscast. I stopped again and watched for a few minutes. I was told that a passenger jet had crashed into the WTC and that the building was being evacuated. Now I started to pay attention to what was being said on the television.
Then I saw the second plane crash into the other tower.
It was a truly gut wrenching moment. I felt as though I was physically punched in the stomach. Twice is no coincidence. Instantly, without a doubt, I knew we were at war. I did not know who attacked us; didn't care either.
Something was rising in my throat.
It was rage. I couldn't talk.
Those who seek to enslave us first must lull us to sleep. This is America. As a Japanese general officer once said, there is a rifle behind every blade of grass. For us to be defeated it must come from within. For too many decades we have been preoccupied with external threats and have ignored the internal ones.
The threat that will bring us to our knees is not the result of invasion, but from neglect. Our death as a free nation will not come from explosions but from rot.
That threat is being realized today in the form of the Democratic Party.
Let's remove the veneer of civility, the Democratic Party is controlled by socialist thugs who have patiently waited for the opportunity to impose their values on a sluggish. materialistic population who is more concerned with the number of chocolate chips in their cookies rather than their freedom.
Some have been diligently warning about this for a long time. To their credit, many people are finally waking up. Like a dreamer caught up in a nightmare and shuddering awake, we regain our prospective with Joe Wilson's heartfelt spontaneous utterance as a rallying cry, "You lie."
Rub the naivety out of your eyes America. Get your ass out of your suddenly cold and uncomfortable bed. We are still at war with people who hate what we stand for and if we are not diligent, we will surely find that, as a nation, we will no longer be different, we will be just like the rest of the world.
We will no be the incredible story of success and hope that the rest of the world longed to emulate. We will no longer be the coveted destination for the disenfranchised, the hopeless, the starving and destitute.
We will become just another socialist shithole that people seek to escape.
That is what Obama and his commie thugs have in store for America.

All we ask is that some daylight be shone on this issue. All Obongo and his keepers have done is dismiss claims of his foreign birth as ridiculous and label those who questions his nationality as "birthers." The same claims were made against John McCain who was born in Panama, but he coughed up all the required documents. Obongo still refuses to release his long form birth record.
A California judge today tentatively scheduled a trial for Jan. 26, 2010, for a case that challenges Barack Obama's eligibility to be president based on questions over his qualifications under the requirements of the U.S. Constitution.
If the case actually goes to arguments before U.S. District Judge David Carter, it will be the first time the merits of the dispute have been argued in open court, according to one of the attorneys working on the issue.
Keep an eye on this one. It may be complete crap and end up like every other attempt to examine his birth certificate, but then again...
But the judge did not immediately rule on Taitz' motion to be granted discovery – that is the right to see the president's still-concealed records. Nor did Carter rule immediately on a motion to dismiss the case, submitted by the U.S. government, following discussion over Taitz' challenge to the work of a magistrate in the case.
The judge did comment that if there are legitimate constitutional questions regarding Obama's eligibility, they need to be addressed and resolved.
Carter ordered a hearing Oct. 5 on the motion to dismiss and ordered arguments submitted on the issue of discovery.
If the case survives that challenge, a pretrial hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 11 and the trial for two weeks later.
I'll act as Devil's Advocate just to stir the pot and throw this in:
Maybe he and the demoncrats are struggling to ram all this deficit spending down our throats in order to beat the reaper so to speak; if Obongo's call to American birth is bogus, there'll be absolute hell to pay so they'd better get all their Xmas shopping done in a big hurry.

Lets see how the media hides this as they do most other causes which celebrate non-liberal ideology.
Let there be no doubt.
We are in danger of losing our liberties.
The Declaratoin of Independence states that "... they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."
Those rightds are the liberties that we are so proud of and so many of us swore to defend. And they were given to us by God.
We can talk all we want and post dire warnings and cry and shout deprecations but that will not change a thing. As a Nation we have offended God and this is what happens; Israel suffered the same fate after being lead out of Egyptian bondage. We have abandoned the faith of our fathers and will suffer the consequences.
Abraham Lincoln saw perceivced the same danger and on March 30th, 1863, attempted to address a national failure through his Proclamation Appointing a National Fast Day.
I will reproduce this proclamation in part:
Let us remember the words of wisdom and warning given to us by God in 2 Chronicles 7:14:
And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
"...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. "
Due to intrusive, immoral and illegal government intervention, the average tax independence day for all Americans is August 12th.
In 1997 it was July 3rd.
We now all work for the government.
Happy Labor Day.

Do not let this happen.
Keep Chris Matthews away from the President we warned them, but nooooooo, they knew better.
So the meeting was scheduled with predictable results.
The Secret Service had to use a firehose to break up the "meeting."
H/T to Charley for the video.
