Thoughts on Taxes « The Burning Platform

Hmm, taxes, just as screwed up as everything else the feds have attempted, by design, except the war machine. There is where central planning excels. Everywhere else, dealing with people who are under no requirement to obey even the simplest orders, order breaks down into disorder, and here we are.

It sucks, but those supposedly in charge aren't willing to accept the consequences of their own malfeasance, and will defend the status quo until the bitter end. It didn't have to be this way, but today is the same as yesterday, and the current status quo is still unsustainable.

If the markets don't crash in the fall, it will be quiet enough to hear a pin drop through the election and on to next January, as we approach the fiscal cliff. What will be the undoing that topples the US financial house of cards? If the banks fail, they'll be taken over with succession plans already in place. Any other black swan will be met with appropriate action. TPTB must be looking through rose colored lenses, because PIIGS is only a foreshadow of what is coming in the mother of all recessions. 1913 gave us the fed, it's time to kick them out, pay them back with their fiat money, and institute free market reforms in the banking industry. If your bank makes bad loans, you FAIL, BASTARDS!!!  If you underwrite bad loans, you FAIL, BASTARDS!!! Fuck Barney Franks, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Will they ever admit they failed? Not very likely. Those fuckers screwed up so bad with sub-prime loans in the name of affordable housing, then US regulators let MBS and derivatives stew into a toxic brew, which then added $6T to the debt in 4 years, that It should serve as a lesson to TUSCON, don't fuck with the markets, but it may also be a lesson they'll never forget. 

Here we are four years later, and are we better off? It depends on whether you're a national defense/security contractor. Business is booming as federal spending replaced private investment. Now at the end of the deficit spending rope, either private industry is allowed to flourish, by scaling back government, or we enter an Orwellian nightmare where a NWO controls everything, and we see how well central planning works.

Let's see how things look next Spring, and whether this time is different. Either the government backs off, and scales down, or they've lost their legitimacy as a government of, by, and for the people.

TEXAS GOP REVOLT « The Burning Platform

CH, I accept your distinction between economic and political systems. Soviet Communism supported 2% of the population as Party Members, who held the best jobs, lived in the best housing and shopped in the best shops. As near as I can tell, crony Capitalism supports 1%, with the rest of society working in a service economy.

Breaking the grip of the central planners on the economy, by removing control over the means of production and control over policy makers is the key. Holding those accountable for wrong doing is the means. When one can change the rules to suit themselves, whether it’s flushing the US Constitution down the commode under the past two administrations, or replacing state’s delegates by the national party, we have become a lawless society. When central planning fails, it’s replaced by anarchy, which we have already witnessed in post-Soviet Russia. Where as mob bosses have gained power, we see the resurgence of state control.

Re-establishment of the rule of law and a Constitutional Republic will break the grip of Satan over the world, where Ron Paul was willing the lead the fight. I don’t know where Romney and Ryan stand, although I may have to retract my statement about voting for the most incompetent candidate. I had no reservations about voting for GWB because he is a professed Christian. That’s good enough for me.

If voting for the lesser of two evils is the choice in this November election, which is the lesser, Socialism, which hasn't worked anywhere it's been tried, or ruthless Capitalism, which has successfully exploited every known resource everywhere it's been tried.

Do both lead to a totalitarian dictatorship? We seem to have been moving in that direction under both GWB and Obama. Which is the lesser of two evils, indeed. It would appear we're voting for the same evil in either case. The manner in which Romney has run his primary election, ruthless and calculating, disqualifies him, in my opinion, to be POTUS.

In this case, the lesser of two evils is the most incompetent, which would be Bama. At least with Obama, we know what we're getting, the destruction of the dollar by QE. Romney would perform much the same actions, but he would also lead the emergence of the NWO. I'm not sure who would in democrat land, some sort of power sharing arrangement.

Everything we've been told by the feds is a lie, namely to secure their own pitiful little pensions, their "way of life", if you will. What has $16T of debt and $200T of unfunded entitlements gotten us besides the destruction of the republic and enslavement to the central banks? We're going to find out. Somehow, the grip of the central banks on the sovereignty of nations must be broken. Taking back the printing press and paying off the banks in diluted dollars is the only solution I see. Who gave them the right to charge us for the use of our money? Certainly not the US Constitution! It's only a shame that legality is only relative, if the rules can be changed by those in power to stay in power, as demonstrated by the GOP primary elections and national convention.

One has to admit that GWB set the bar pretty low with regard to leadership. He looked like a billion dollars standing around in his winter long coats, looking for all the world like the Michelin man with a bad case of hemroids. 9/11 was the neocon call to arms, with no rational explanation except it was a false flag event orchestrated by the shadow government, and American liberty has been steadily eroded by both the Bush and Obama administrations, in fact, one would be hard pressed to tell the difference. I suspect that will be the case whoever wins the next election, Obamney or Rombama.

GWB caved on Iraq and TARP. America should have know better than to trust a man who doesn’t drink and whose father lied to the American people when he said, “No new taxes”.

The Devil is ramping up the attack with drought conditions over much of the US, and the threat of power outages in California due to the heat wave.

To blame Obama, or criticize his leadership is out of ignorance of the true cause of the crises, a concerted effort by the god of this world to steal, kill and destroy, aided by his unwitting dupes in the federal bureaucracy and global financial elite. All of whom have conspired to destroy the beacon of freedom which this country formerly represented.

The current exponential rise began with Reagan, and accelerated under GWB. Obama is just riding the rocket, because he doesn’t have any choice. Neither will Romney be able to do anything to arrest a situation out of control. Paul is still the best and only answer to the problem of deficit spending. Barring getting rid of the fed and passing a balanced budget amendment, we’ll only continue a slow decline into oblivion and totalitarian police state, if we aren’t destroyed by global war or financial collapse first.

PC, I can only tell you Bush cratered on Iraq and TARP, as well as the Patriot Act, etc. I’ve heard this quote attibuted to GWB, “Stop waving the constitution in my face. It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”. That my friend, makes him a terrorist and enemy of the state.

"Sorry, this man was not riding the rocket. He has deliberately destroyed this country in his thirst for more power." What??? In the first place, he’s already ostensibly the most powerful man on the face of the earth. I’m not sure what that makes the individuals who put him there, his handlers? In the second, more power? For whom? Again, his handlers? Yeah, and aren’t they the same as Romney’s?

If it were a conspiracy of men, then droughts, brown outs, tsunamis rendering neglected nuclear waste potentially extinction events, etc., which are outside of man’s control, would be otherwise just another conspiracy theory, which, when proven, is no longer a theory. Yet, leading up to Y2K, natural and man-made disasters have coincided to magnify the damage. Now, we have another drought. Coincidence? Granted, that is the whole point of risk management, when you ignore it, it bites you. So, while there may be a perfectly natural explanation, I prefer the spiritual aspect. I suspect, too, that is neither illuminating nor enlightening enough for you. God can’t be proven scientifically, however, it is he who set the universe in motion. Although, I will leave you with this thought, spiritual law supersedes natural law.

And let the redeemed say, "Amen".

HOW TO DEFEAT TYRANNY « The Burning Platform

Anyone who thinks the US honors it's own treaties need only look to the American Indian. This US has broken every treaty it has ever made with the Indians, except the last one, and is now in the process of treating it's own citizens in the same manner.

Totalitarian authority is absolute, and there is no room for the rule of law. Occupy Wall Street is a good example of what the US will look like in a few years, against billions of rounds of ammunition and urban armored vehicles. The resolve of the American people will remain resolute, even in the face of overwhelming odds.

The tyranny of the crown has been replaced by the twentieth century nation state, where the means of production are controlled by a few and ruled by an oligarchy. Now that the last of the minerals rights on the earth have been divided, it is time to focus on population control, and derive an optimum sustainable level. The only nagging element in the equation is those pesky humans. Why shouldn't the resources of the world be controlled by a few, for their enjoyment and amusement? Just ask the British royal family, they certainly belong to the global cabal. One might be surprised by the answer.

CRISIS OF VALUES « The Burning Platform

FBD, because without an arbiter of truth, and I accept God’s Word as truth, then there is no foundation on which to base any dialogue, and no point in further discussion. That doesn’t mean I won’t point out when someone is wrong.

One can argue semantics until the end of the world, and never arrive at any mutual understanding. By the same token, one can lean unto their own understanding, but they will usually be wrong. (Proverbs 3:5 ESV).

IOW, and not to belabor the point, how else does one distinguish between right and wrong, without a frame of reference by which to do so? And if one chooses a frame of reference, how does one know it to be right? The infallible and unerring Word of God is the answer to both of these questions. One may choose other sources for truth, but in the end, it is God’s Word that is above all.

If you deny this self-evident truth, then I will ask you, what is truth?

And to tie this in with the OP, the reason we have a crisis of values, is because we have rejected the truth of God’s Word, and rejected his righteousness, loving money and self more than truth. There will be a day of reckoning, and it will be God’s reckoning, not man’s. I will lean unto God’s understanding and trust him, and point out the flaw in Christopher’s dismissal of religious arguments, that he is rejecting God, and therefore rejecting truth to his own detriment.

Since you asked.

@Colma, except they didn’t just do it, they’ve been one party in a two party system where there’s no difference between the two except on what they want to spend borrowed money. Case in point, Ronald Reagan, on who’s watch the deficit began it’s current exponential rise.

In fact, your argument belies the denial in which most Americans find themselves, almost without exception.

Let’s pass a balanced budget amendment, then debate on what to spend it. We’ll only be debating crumbs, then maybe the feds will lose their pre-eminence and people will go about their lives in a de-centralized manner. We can end this mess by taking back the presses from the fed, printing $15T and pay off the US debt, maybe another $5T or so to pay off everyone else’s with the stipulation of balanced budget amendments. Unfunded entitlements will also have to end.

It’s not rocket surgery, but there is the Devil with whom to contend.

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” Psalm 33:12a (ESV)
