A few things. The 5th amendment protects the citizens against the government, it does NOT protect the government against the citizens. Taxpayers are NOT afforded 5th amendment protection You MUST, by law, file a tax return, whether you have income or not. That return may be used against you in a criminal matter. Thus, by law, you must provide potentially self-incriminating evidence to the IRS. To have the head of this agency invoke the 5th amendment concerning something she did in that capacity is a slap in the face of the taxpayers of this country. The IRS is the ONLY organization which includes within it a legislative, executive, and judiciary "branch". They choose who to audit, and what to do with that audit. If they believe that a taxpayer is in violation of the law, they should have to send an audit request to ANOTHER, separate branch of the Treasury. Once that audit is completed, that second branch of Treasury should have to send the results to a third branch to evaluate it and decide whether there is a violation. This would help to prevent "the cabal of the few" which the merging of executive, legislative,and judicial branches allows.

From JP Morgan, testifying before a house committee concerning the creation of the FRB. It has been quoted or misqoted as "Gold is money, everything else is credit." Money MUST have intrinsic value, something bitcoin lacks. http://unsealedprophecy.wordpress.com/2011/08/24/%E2%80%9Cgold-is-money-everything-else-is-credit-%E2%80%9D-j-p-morgan-testifying-to-congress-in-1912/ http://www.barrypopik.com/index.php/new_york_city/entry/gold_is_money_and_nothing_else_gold_and_silver_are_money_everything_else_is/

CPAC Update: Rubio and Paul Are Going

The media is falling all over itself to pick Christie as the republican nominee. We need Pau, Cruzl and Rubio in the senate. Surely there's another candidate, maybe Ben Carson if he chooses to run. He'd probably get half the black vote, if not more.

“The control of credit involves the control of money, does it not?” he asked. “No,” said Mr. Morgan. “What I call money is the basis of banking.” “But the basis of banking is credit, is it not?” “Not always,” said the witness. “That is an evidence of banking, but it is not the money itself. The money is gold, and nothing else.”

"Cream, as the old saying goes, rises to the top." So, as the older saying goes, does scum.
Glad he brought that up. It reminds one of the last time black females followed someone into paradise.
SO how do I get an exemption? Harry Reid doesn't return my calls.
Can any of those three percent identify what exactly is "broken" with our current immigration system, other than the fact that the law is not enforced?
The IRS has got to go!
