The obama machine is now looking to seize your IRA, 401k, and pension, in the name of "fairness". It is actually an act of obama's socialist greed and out of control government lust of suppression.
What is proposed? Once the government takes YOUR money they will co-mingle it with the funds they said they would give you in the form of social security. THE GOVERNMENT will decide how to invest those funds, most likely long term government securities, when you can access them, how much you can get of them and how much they will take of what you get. Couldn't happen? Think again, it has already in other countries, and in Ireland just last year.
Of course this is 'fair,' after all, the incompetent obama machine that bloated the national debt to over $16 trillion, couldn't produce a viable budget over the past four years, can't negotiate without the "my way or the highway" rhetoric, which is looking to control every aspect of your life, should control your retirement money. Why not share the hard earned money that you have saved for your whole life with those that didn't bother. You don't need it, obama will provide. Never mind what will happen to the stock market should this occur.
Another tax reform they are speaking about is the elimination of the charitable contribution deduction. Another blatant effort by the obama machine to take control. Think about this: obama is taking pennies away from those who contribute millions to charity in an effort to control distribution of millions to charity, millions that he doesn't have and never will. Most social programs would never need government contributions if the government allowed greater charitable deductions which would reduce the obligation of everyone and eliminate the need for the inefficient, incompetent bureaucracy.
obama care is creeping around the bend as well. If you haven't heard, it's worse then the liar and cheat had told the American people. I encourage you to do a little research on your own, especially if you are under 26 years of age, to see what is in store for you.
Oh, there was also some speak of the AMT. While I only heard about this from one other source it wouldn't surprise me if it were true. A great way to increase government income, that means taking more of YOUR money, would be to lower the AMT threshold.
Reform is needed, but this is not reform. This is a socialist takeover attempt of our country. obama wants a super majority of US citizens on social programs so that he and his party can control the country. Period.
Open boarders, advertised government support for individuals, ease of obtaining and never ending government support, government control of health and welfare from birth to death-this is obama's agenda for the US. This is a socialist attack of the US basic philosophy of democracy.
I hope that the fight to save what is rightfully our own is made and won quickly. True tax reform is needed, but I can only think back to the passing of obama care-we need to stop this now before obama does the same thing with tax reform-cheating millions out of their hard earned money that the government has no right to. We cannot afford to fight this after the fact, like obama care.
I would like to change topic at this point to highlight a subject that came up during my Thanksgiving Holiday, a very touchy subject for all, and one which I thought more research was needed before bringing it up. That is racism.
It was told to me that there has been a drastic increase in racism, specifically anti-black. I wanted to see if this were true, especially because of the cry of racism from the left every time someone criticizes the competence of an obama appointee. A ploy used by those in power to create the racial, gender, class and religious rifts they used to keep control of the government. They scream their lies loud enough and long enough and people actually start to think they're true.
I checked the US Census Bureau Statistical Abstract which uses FBI records and found the there was an increase of 9% from '08 to '10 of anti-black reported cases. However, there was a drop of 21% since.
I am bringing this up because I believe that the media bias when reporting on such cases is creating the impression of a much larger racial chasm.
Before I go any further-there is TOO much racism that remains in a country with our educational advantage, any such incidents are reprehensible and anti-black hate crimes still dominate 72% of all hate crimes! Something needs to be done about this, but the media does not help by screaming 'racism' and sensationalizing every act, without full discloser and followup.
Case in point was one that was also brought up at that time. Sharmeka Moffit.
What was stated was that the kkk had brutally attacked this woman and burned her after writing racial slurs on her car. Why hasn't anything been done? Where was the follow up?
Well, unfortunately the poor woman has issues, and it was determined she had done it to herself. Very sad in its own right.
The real issue for those that are not directly effected by this tragic event-the over coverage of the story and buried follow up by the media. Slanted and provocative.
The same argument can be made in the case of Trayvon Martin's death. The media had already sentenced Zimmerman the week it happened with contrived reports and falsified 'evidence'. This did nothing but fan the embers of racist seeking media whores into a flame and bring about even greater racial divide.
And while I am sure that Trayvon's mother wants to remember him as that cute 12-14 year old, why no pictures of Trayvon as the young man who was killed? Because that would create some biased impression? Can't the same be said about the lack of those photos being used?
What the media has done in this case has not helped public opinion or done true justice any favors.
Lastly, the recent comparison of obama to Jesus Christ. obama has no characteristic, no quality, that even resembles JC. If you want a more accurate comparison I have three that are much better-Judas Iscariot, Punctious Pilot, or Lucifer. These three all share traits with obama that he has shown through his actions as a public figure, and who knows, maybe even before.
