Trains to Nowhere

Why do conservatives feel they have to be against trains? I love trains. As for Tehachapi, a beautiful little place by the way, rail lines between major cities can't help but pass through the open countryside in between.
This sort of thing is so bad, and so unfair to government employees. I understand the desire for smaller government, but don't try to incite people with misinformation like this. Yes, the average government employee makes more than the average worker overall, but that's because most government jobs require high education or high labor skills. Most menial labor is contracted out. If you are a government employee, and resent this type of attack, please join NARFE, the National Active and Retired Government Employees Association. We lobby to protect your interests.

IRS Now Robo-audits Your Spending

The biggest problem with income tax is that it is so easy to cheat. Although the consumption tax is inherently fair, it will also be difficult to fairly enforce. The fairest and easiest tax to collect would actually be a national property tax. Those who don't own property would pay through their rentals. It was revealed just this week that the government loses $385 billion each year through income tax cheating. Any IRS effort to use sophisticated tracking techniques to stem this is welcome. So Mr. Norris is off base in trying to villainize the IRS.
Everything you say is true regarding legal marriage. But then, the state has always had the right to define a legal family. They are just expanding the field. But what the state cannot touch is sacramental marriage, as defined by our religious faith. That's our promise to God to join with a member of the opposite sex for the rest of our lives to create a family in worship of Him. We don't have to get all out of joint with what the state is doing. If that is bad, it will reveal itself in time.

Video Game Manufacturers Are in Denial

Sure they can deny it. There are mega bucks to be made on video games. Money is the greatest corrupter. Video games often portray the player as a freedom fighter or assassin in the cause of justice. Today, as the chorus for gun control was gaining steam, the other half of the population was flocking to gun shows and stores, preparing for their own days as self-styled freedom fighters and assassins in the coming war to protect their second amendment rights. Hang on, America. It's going to get ugly.
You are right on, Rachel. No sane, sensible person can oppose your suggestions.

Report: Sad Federal Employees :(

Federal Workers: Tired of being trashed by people like Mr. DeHaven? I am. But there is someone who is willing to stand up for us. Check out your local chapter of the National Association of Active and Retired Federal Workers (NARFE) or go on-line to www.narfe.org to look up your option of joining as an e-member. You do good work (most of the time) and are definitely not overpaid. If there are too many of us, the right solution is a studied elimination of government functions, not punishing all federal employees across the board.
Active and retired federal employees: Do you want to counteract and defend yourselves against the lies seen on this page? Seek out and join your local chapter of the National Association of Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE), or go to www.narfe.org to learn about our e-chapters. Vicious articles and comments like the ones you see here serve only to denigrate the loyal and hardworking public servants you know you have been.
