The Bernank needs a Missouri Boat Ride
No, he needs to be the Guest of Honor at a Guillotine Party.
You guys are way too humane with the execution ideas.
Rectal impalement or upside down crucifixion maybe...
What I was thinking is more along these lines
Greenspan, Paulson, Rubin, Senator Gramn of TX, Summers and Mozilo deserve a military firing squad. An additional 200 accomplices in the MSM, NY and DC should be doing very hard time in prison for 20 plus years.
The greatest country in the history of mankind has been stabbed in the back from within. When this was done to the Germans they responded by electing Hitler. By 2016, things are going to be so bad that an American version of Hitler could easily take power with the full support of the majority of Americans.
Folks, there won't be any mass organization. Don't wait for some internet savior to come and rescue you. Your friends and neighbors will never understand, or be of any use even if they do. Take care of yourself.
How? Opt out of the consumerist sheep shearing, and save as much of your labor as you can. Stop doing business with intra-state banksters. Stop buying crap you don't need. Stop believing TV commercials. Just opt out. You'll be preparing yourself for what's to come, and you'll be starving the beast.
If only a small percentage of us did that, they system would come crashing down. Without a shot being fired. Just quit playing their game.
If you mean a dictatorship will arise from the middle pleading for relief, I think the case can be made, at least from Soros' point of view. I think this is a big part of the set-up
Agreed... too humane indeed.
Buckwheats for everyone.
I seen what you done.
Great movie reference there.
I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I live in KS, is that close enough? I also have a boat with a hole in it. I would prefer to use the new boat though so I can get out of the $700 a year luxury tax. Ooops.....it disappeared. Someone stole it.
my favorite line from this great movie.. "dieing ain't much of a living boy"
you a money printer?.....mans got to make a livin.........printing aint much of a living boy.......
Paint Your Printing Press Red
The CPI has been adjusted to include Hard Rock Candy... "cuz it ain't fer eatin', it's just fer.. lookin' through."
"And this bottle of Zirp is $0% US. Works wonders for just about everything... How's it with stains?"
I had to come back..
Yeh I know.........
Josey Wales is one of the greatest movies of all time and a tour de force of great lines.
Wales: "soon as I get to likin somebody, they ain't around too long,"
Wattie: "I've noticed that soon as you get to dislikin somebody, they ain't around too long neither."
but the original article was total bullshit. What these idiots who talk about marginal tax rates omit is that the numbers of deductions have been sliced down. Those 90% rates weren't paid by anyone as all kinds of things were deductible from income back then.
This statement is 100% in earnest:
Reduce the Federal Budget by 30% across the board and the overwhelming majority, most likely as many as 85% of Americans (not including those who work directly for government or directly for companies where their job is the result of government funding), would notice no decline in their standard of living.
Reduce state budgets by 30% across the board and the same thing as above holds true.
You could even reduced federal, state and local government budgets by 30% across the board, and limit reductions to Social Security Payments to 7% or less (by getting rid of the EPIC waste and fraud that exists in Medicare & Medicaid, not to mention DoD/Pentagon contracts).
To put the cherry on top, the country could go to a flat tax of around 12% to 17%, replacing the incredibly inefficient income tax as it now stands (with 60,000 pages of IRC bullshit), and living standards and the environment for almost all Americans and businesses would improve by a vast degree.
but instead what we get is shit like this that was just passed in Florida:
Florida to require drug testing for all welfare recipients
Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) signed legislation into law on Tuesday that requires anyone applying for temporary government assistance to pay for and undergo drug screening.
Under the new law, applicants for the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program who test positive for illegal drug use won't be eligible to receive benefits for one year or until they successfully complete a drug abuse program. Those who don't test positive will be reimbursed for the cost of the test.
Around 60,000 people would be affected, according to earlier reports.
Good. Those drug addicts don't need the tax money of working people to pay for their fix. Bunch of degenerates that went from begging mom for $20 from their room in the basement, to licking Uncle Sam's shaft for their dope funds. Fuck em.
But this does present an opportunity. A bottle with a temperature strip, two hand warmers, a rubber band, and some guaranteed clean pee..$50. Stand outside the dole hub and wait for the welfare queens.
So, did the banksters who received a $700 billion dollar welfare check from us have to have their pee tested?
Or are they free to do their lines of coke etc and drink champagne while pissing down on us?
no doubt he seems to have no trouble with the personal vices of the welfare recipients of the 12 digit variety.
how utterly telling.
The wealthy welfare queens have also "killed" more people by starvation via food commodity price manipulation than gangster street thugs...The Squid in particular.
Debt is their drug of choice.
you forgot coke & hookers (or maids for a bit more excitement)
Absolutely right-- dole recipients should limit their purchases to sanctioned vices, like alcohol, gambling, porn, cigarettes.
and let's not forget the drugs that help pad the bottom line of big pharma...because those are DEFINITELY NOT bad for you and most definitely NOT addictive.
if you think that someone that smokes pot is a drug addict, then you are simply too uptight to live.
get over yourself. why don't you put down the bible, knock back a few drinks, smoke a joint and go out and get laid. it'll do you good.
Can you apply by leaving a turd on the Welfare Dept. front step? They could screen it for drugs and filet mignon. Be sure to leave your name on it, or maybe they could check your DNA records.
There should be no welfare. It's called get a job, bitches.
In theory, the flat tax makes economic sense ... but in practicality, it's a license to steal as much as the government wants.
if a theory is good it does work in practice. if it doesn't work in practice, it is a bad theory.
This was a great series of articles (as usual) by Jim Quinn.
Brilliant stuff. A delicious read.
Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?
don't piss down my back and tell me its raining....
It ain't just the fed.
I'm paying high property tax to fund a community college system that grants in-state tuition to illegals, but not returning vets.
We deserve what is coming.
Community college is for morons.
in my youth i might have spouted off something along these lines. then i got older and began to think.
It's actually one of the few places to get basic education at a reasonable price.
Yes, a lot of morons go there because they can't make it into the overpriced colleges, but that's not necessarily terrible since they are spared the accompanying debt-loads.
City of Austin. I'll check to see if it is statewide.
We have so many illegals, the pols are afraid of them. The Libs want to suck their dicks for the votes.
austin is a sanctuary city.
If you build it, they will come.
Just a hopeful thought... :(
Anyone who plans to move to Texas and thinks it is a low tax jurisdiction since it has no income tax, should note that paying 2%+ of appraised value on a residence per annum in combined city and school district ad valorem taxes is not unusual. And if you have mineral rights and happen to live over the core Barnett Shale region, you might as well be doubly screwed if you have no active royalty or option income from it.
Well, they couldn't possibly allow you to actually own your property after all, and of course logic has it that you'd have no control over it or how the taxes on it are spent. Government knows best, right?
Not all of us deserve what is coming. There's a lot of blame to throw around, but I know a lot of folks who deserve what is coming FAR more than I.
the excuse that poor people dont pay taxes has always bothered me
its like they pay taxes with their ass.... seriously, TAKE away their subsidies and tax them and they will still be alive id bet
the government uses the markets against the poor... to make it easier for elitists to walk all over their self respect
It bothers me too since anyone using cash is being heavily taxed right now.
