Hitler, Wealth, and Taxes

P.L. Booth and have been reading each others stuff for a very long time. I should have featured his work long before this, and for not doing so, I apologize. Please read and enjoy;

Hitler, Wealth, and Taxes

Does our current national situation remind anyone of Hitler’s move to extinguish the Jews? Well, OK, read conservatives or Christians for Jews. Now do you see any similarities?

Why yes… yes it does. Let’s see…

Children singing odes about BHO in matching shirts?

BHO, who has been raised by fascists and Marxists, and wants to embrace centralized state government.

Michell Obama who wants to spread the “pie” instead of making more pies.

Holdren who suggested mass sterilization, via the drinking water supply.

E. Emmanuel who has created the “Total life system” for HC.

Dunn who likes the philosophies of Mao.

Ayers the Marxist who helped groom BHO.

Marshall the Marxist who was BHO mentor.

Wright – black Marxist liberation theology.

Van Jones who is an open communist.

J Jones who is a friend of Ayers and contributed to congressional legislation.

Lloyd who wants to silence opposing (conservative) views in the media.

Clinton the proud progressive who champions GB Shaw and Alinsky.

Sunstein who will “nudge” us into submission, until the nudge doesn’t work, then we have (raw power)…

Andy Stearn who will use the power of persuasion, and if that doesn’t work…(more raw power)

the Unions will use the persuasion or power (and will strike any large company that doesn’t kow-tow to them). (See the banker who was harassed at his home, or the black man beaten by SEIU, or the man who had his finger bit off by lefties. and so on…)

Yes the current situation looks EXACTLY like Hitlers moves to exterminate the Jews. In this case eliminate the opposition and various useless eaters (that would be Christians, Conservatives, people who just happen to like personal liberty, anyone who doesn’t like paying excessive taxes, anyone foolish enough to protest or disagree with the “Annointed One”, etc.)

“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C.S. Lewis

And of course, there are numerous misguided Democrats and uneducated or poorly educated students at all levels who simply do not comprehend what liberty is about since they haven’t yet had to fend for themselves and have no comprehension of what is required to prosper in the wild, wild world of commerce.

And what about the dishonest politician who tells us that he won’t raise taxes on the middle class; instead, he’s going to raise corporate income taxes as means to force rich corporations to pay their rightful share of government? When a tax is levied on a corporation, if it is to survive, it will have one of three responses or some combination thereof. One response is to raise the price of its product, so who bears the burden but the customer? Another response is to lower dividends; again, who bears the burden but the investors? Yet another response is to lay off workers (unemployment actually helps the economy if you are Moron Pelosi). In each case, it is people, not some legal fiction called a corporation, who bear the burden of the tax.

Because corporations have these normal and natural responses to impositions of taxes, they are merely government tax collectors who collect money from people (customers and employees) and send it to Washington. Therefore, you should tell that politician, who promises to tax corporations instead of you, that he’s an idiot because corporations, like land, do not pay taxes. Only people pay taxes. Only people own or possess wealth, not government. Government is a user and destroyer of wealth. It is systematically impossible for government to manufactor wealth. All it can do is make it easier or more difficult for its citizens to make wealth.

    Excellent piece! Heck, I thought Booth had quit blogging for some reason. Time to add a link! :)

    Good article Fred. The difference between now and 1930s Germany: We are armed; the Jews in Europe didn’t have the ability or in some cases the will to fight back. When the feds make a move at the 1st and or 2nd Amendment will be time to overthrow these pieces of crap. Will be a civil war they have no chance of winning. Hope you RINOs are listening too.

    Nicely stated, but I should care to add a few more salient items:

    It turns out that Mr Obama, as I’ve said before, is actually insufficiently left for the Left.

    Upon a few hours’ insertion into the presidency he didn’t immediately shut down Guantanamo, pull out of Iraq, admit defeat, blame and guilt, proffer reparations to blacks, institute War Crimes trials for Bush and his cabinet and advisors, offer free homes to the poor, ratchet up corporate and personal taxes for those making more than $50,000, increase welfare payments, and install Ayers — et al — into important cabinet and numerous other government posts.

    You MUST realize this: Mr Obama IS insufficiently left for The Left.

    In reflection, consider: though the Demorats own the House, Senate and White House, they have still not run completely roughshod over this country and, further, they are experiencing a remarkably rapid slapback to their policies.

    There is still hope, ladies and gentlemen.

    NOVEMBER.

    Minuteman26: which is why we must continue to monitor and insist upon our 2nd Amendment freedoms. We can either be armed and prepared, or we can be serfs laboring in the slop.

    This morning on the way in to work my thoughts turned to “soft tyrannies”, so the CS Lewis quote: “Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. … ” really hit home.

    There are numerous examples of this in the news each day. I’m a news hound, and I’ve begun to count the number of times I read phrases such as “government oversight”, “regulation” or “regulators”, “czars”, and these days, nearly any mention of HHS. Try it yourself; it’s frightening.

    What got me thinking of this this morning was an article I read yesterday about how numerous companies are asking to be excused from new regulations which recently kicked in as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). I read how many of the very organizations which lobbied for Obamacare are now asking to be excused from it. The biggest single waiver, for 351,000 people, was for the United Federation of Teachers Welfare Fund (a NY teacher’s union). Yesterday’s big news was about McDonalds being granted a waiver. In all, as of yesterday, 114 companies and organizations had been granted waivers. This is not all that surprising, but what really got my ears up was the fact that one organization or company had its request for a waiver turned down, and HHS has refused to say who it was or why.

    What did this outfit do to piss off the government? It means that whoever these people are will now either lose what health insurance coverage they had, or will be hit with punishing increases in their premiums.

    Kathleen Sebelius has sent letters to several health insurance companies threatening that they risk losing future government contracts if they don’t stop saying premiums are going up because of Obamacare, even though it’s obvious they must go up with mandated increased benefits. The no-pre-existing-condition for children mandate which just kicked in makes is smarter for parents to NOT carry coverage for their children until they get sick and need it. Insurance works because the insurance companies take in slightly more in premiums than they pay out, and use relatively simple statitics to calculate what premiums need to be to achieve this. Now, if everyone on the plan is sick and taking benefits out, who’s paying for them? I can’t lose a government contract; I’m saying it: the new law mandates higher premiums, even if it doesn’t explicitly use those words. Even an idiot can see this.

    It makes me wonder then, what was the real intention of this law then? Certainly not about “affordable care”. More like “patient control”, step one to “single payer”, otherwise know as 100% government run health care. I wonder if you take every 10,000th word from the bill if it would make the sentance: “This will fail and then we’ll have them.” I haven’t tried it yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

    In 1964 in one of Ronald Reagan’s most famous speaches (A Time For Choosing) he spoke of a government which had lost sight of the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers, and how well-intentioned do-gooders were actually taking freedom from us. That was nearly 50 years ago; the nibbling away at our freedoms hasn’t stopped, only now they are taking mouthfuls. Freedom, once lost, is nearly impossible to regain; if we don’t stop the bleeding now, it may be too late.

    Afternoon check of the news and another new Czar, although this one is almost funny. In one sentance, the words “Czar” and “Oversees”. I wonder what his budget is? From NPR today:

    “Almost a month ago, the Obama administration appointed an “Asian carp czar.” John Goss, who reports to an office in the White House, oversees the government-led effort to eradicate the species.”

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a “Conservative Blogger Czar” overseeing government-led efforts to eradicate them too…
