Taxing Life Away

A flat tax solves the problem, John, but no politician will support it. Liberals would rather cut off your arm than support a flat tax. Conservatives would rather let a Liberal cut off his arm than support a flat tax. Politicians want to manipulate individuals and businesses and they do that with the massive U.S. tax code. Just a note on the unfairness of our tax code: If you donate money to a "recognized charity", you may deduct the donation from your income. But if you give a few hundred dollars to Sally Smith when her house burns down to help her out, you cannot deduct that money because Sally Smith is not a "recognized charity".

Immigration Reform is Driving Off a Cliff

Is this surprising? This blurs the distinction between citizens and illegal immigrants. Makes it a lot easier for illegals to vote too.
Yes, it is exactly like "If you like your unemployment benefits, you can keep your unemployment benefits!" This one, however, the Demoncrats are serious about.
The real question is "Why should we turn an unemployment system into another welfare system?" Don't we have enough welfare slavery already? The House should just say "NO!" to the Demoncrats.
Yes. If the only choice is lawlessness by a Republican or lawlessness by a Democrat, why bother to vote? According to Jeb's logic, we should praise bank robbers, drug pushers, Ponzi schemers, etc. They only break the law to support their families for goodness sake!

"The objective is to destroy Christianity and any orthodox religious view that opposes homosexuality." They do seek to destroy Christianity. Islam kills people who engage in single gender sexual relations, but you don't find homosexuals and lesbians attacking Islam. The progressives hate Christianity. They embrace Islam because Islam lets them claim that Americans are frightened sheep who need the progressives to protect us from the big bad wolf, er... terrorist.

The larger question is "How long will America allow activist judges to destroy our constitution and country?" Why do we allow these federal judges to ignore the law and create their own law. The constitution affords no power to the judiciary to make law. When will our states say "No! You do not make laws in our state. Our legislature does."
Yet the socialist Demoncrats will tell you that we need to increase U.S. corporate taxes. When the economy has been stagnant for 6 years and unemployment has remained unacceptably high, the Demoncrats want to continue to stifle the economy and prevent the creation of jobs. Why do those who are continually trampled on by the Demoncrats continue to vote Demoncrat?
MSNBC is a liberal news agency. It wants a RINO candidate so that the Democrat candidate can win. Lets hope the GOP leadership has better sense than to support Jeb or Christie. Republicans need to stop throwing elections away.
The massive and continuing effort by our government to destroy the American education system is difficult to understand. It is not difficult to understand that there are well funded groups whose desire to destruction of the American education system. What is hard to understand is that they are able to sell their toxic product. Conservative governors have embraced common core over the objections of their citizens. The desire of some for Nanny state control is a continuing mystery.
