A Brief History of How We Were Scammed by an Income Tax 

In a previous article I explained at least one reason why Americans aren’t rioting over the size of the national debt and yearly budget deficit – how Washington is taxing and spending us into oblivion and yet we just don’t seem to care. Sure, when a pollster calls, we tell him or her it is […]

Theft by Taxation (So a Majority of Voters Will Want More Government)

“As of the close of business on April 14, the Treasury had brought in a record $1,477,901,000,000 since fiscal 2015 started on Oct. 1, 2014, according the Daily Treasury Statement.” The 16th Amendment gave the Federal Government the authority and power to tax every everything and everybody, and the courts have expanded that power.

Liberals Want Equality Except When it Comes to Tax Rates

Gbenga Akinnagbe, star of HBO’s “The Wire” and Fox’s “24″ argued that Hollywood is “very similar to Congress.

There are Marxists in Your Church Ready to Pick Your Pocket in the Name of Jesus

My article on the inauguration of Bill de Blasio caused one Facebook reader to take me to task for identifying the newly sworn in mayor as a Marxist. When a politician starts talking about “income inequality” and promises to use the authority and force of government to “correct” it, that person is a Marxist, and […]

I Care if Millionaires Pay More in Taxes and I’m not a Millionaire

With Republican friends like Bill Kristol, who needs Democrats to condemn? Here’s the latest from supposed conservative Kristol on raising taxes: “I don’t think Republicans have the leverage or it’s worth using whatever leverage they have in maintaining rates at 35% instead 37 or 38%. I just don’t think it’s economically — as far as […]
