Our Federal Govt Lays Awake Nights to Think This Stuff Up

August 29, 2013

This is a humdinger and is sure to cause migraine headaches for all fifty states (or was it 57 . . . ;o). I swear the Justice Dept. and the Treasury Department, Health & Human Services, the EPA -all of them are on a non-stop course to bust all state budgets and of course keep themselves in control of every aspect or our lives and keep attorneys in work from here to eternity.

This just down from the Treasury Dept. today-

Gay Spouses in All States Can File Joint Taxes

Even in states where gay marriage is not legal (currently just 13 states allow gay marriage). They jumped right in right after the Supremes overturned part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act in June stating all federal workers with gay married partners would receive full federal benefits. But as usual, unintended consequences reared its ugly head. The feds realized many of the federal workers were joined in civil unions but not legally married in one states allowing it. The Dept of Defense will give ten days leave for same-sex couples to get married.

Why not an afternoon before a justice of the peace you ask? Don’t be silly, after all, it’s practically a human right to have a honeymoon, especially paid for by the US taxpayer.

According to Bloomberg, more than 200 provisions in the tax code and federal regulations reference marriage, affecting a range of financial matters such as retirement accounts and health benefits. This ruling (no doubt unconstitutional (tramples all over the 10th Amendment for just a start) also makes it easier for spouses to inherit tax-free money and same-sex married spouses have the option to amend returns three back and can seek refunds, but of course aren’t required to refile returns if they would pay more. This is akin to Lois Lerner with illegal IRS egg all over her face pleading the 5th when being questioned before Congress. They always get it both ways (no pun intended).

What An Opportunity to See If We Will Only Look

September 7, 2012

Here you go, democracy at it’s best right there on the big screen. It is sad and disheartening how quickly the vast majority of politicians elected move from

“I’m here to do the people’s work” to-

“I’m here to amass power & stay in office as long as possible”

The incredulity expressed as more and more people disengage from the system, from voting or even caring is nothing more than denial. And why are so many people turned off to the most wonderful thing we have as a free people -Liberty? Because it’s been hijacked by a simple but pervasive disregard for the rule of law. 

The GOP here is intent on keeping party control at the top, trying to marginalize the Ron Paul & Tea Party delegates. The vote conducted by Speaker Boehner requires a two-thirds majority to carry. Here’s how that played out. ” The Ayes have it” -are you kidding? Where was this Russia or China?

The DEMs had a schizophrenic moment wanting to walk-back their controversial removal of GOD and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, from their party platform, but they had an even harder time making democracy work. It took old Anthony Villaraigosa three floor voice votes to channel his dictator self. Pretty amusing if it weren’t so sad.

And why do you supposed that “Arab American” lady down in front looked so disappointed? Springtime came much quicker in Egypt but it’s gonna take the Islamists a little more time to get rid of us Christians perhaps.

This is why we cannot disengage. They will not stop!
