The federal tax system was originally intended to fund the military. It was job number one for the federal government. All the other stuff, entitlements and such, were added later. We need to return to the original plan. Bottom line? We have to be very frugal regarding frivolous spending. A strong military is not an option but a necessity. Too many wannabes want to take us over.
Here is a sobering thought. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. Conservative estimates show that between 15 and 25% of them support Jihad. 15 to 25% of 1.6 billion almost equals our entire population. All of our armed forces combined do not equal 500,000 personnel. It would fall to the citizenry to assist our own military if we came under a major attack. But wait, our government wants to allow the U.N. to disarm us. A semiautomatic AR-15 does not compete well with a fully automatic AK-47.
Rock Scarfone DUH DOUG! that is what makes us people –like me– whom was blessed with 100 a month, powdered milk/eggs and yellow cheese once a month, that recall entitlements as the blessings of Jesus! nd this was not 1950! it was the 1960/70s!
YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT THE CHINESE WITH THEIR N KOREAN< IRANIAN AND OTHER ALLIES! AND ALL THE MUSLIMS IN THE WORLD MAKE NO DIFFERENCE. WHAT DOES IS HAVING MUSLIMS HERE IN THE USA!
it is those whom have no idea what it means to be poor… and working minimum wage, it is easy to sit there and enjoy your life.. with all members intact! Hell, my medical bills even then cost my mother thousands of dollars.
while many of us were dirt poor and not because of work ethic or GOD or being lazy or uneducated, others made millions and also railed at welfare! hell, your ancestors had to get help during the depression of 1929 to 1939!! i bet they did!
i read what the fools say. most never served in the military either! though they raise the flag and say! “THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE?”
I got so sick while serving i was hospitalized two months and 6 month convalescent leaves! i never asked the VA for anything until i simply needed help. and my not asking caused worst damage! I hated ever asking anyone for anything!
Fact is, only fools fall for that bs about entitlements causing our ills! What? Are you for real? What about the trillions wasted? 15 years of war caused by idiots whom invaded IRAQ! ?? and then screwed it all up?/ Oh No! just say woman with children and no supporting husbands are not worth our time? What do you KNOW not PREACH.. ISIS BECAME DUE TO OUR RIDICULOUS MOVES IN IRAQ AND LIBYA AND ELSE WHERE!
they call medicare and social security entitlements??? what happened to the two trillion a year?? they used it up! The same peeps ! and now the system is broke ?
no sir, i know what i am writing here and it is fact. a nation with 10 to 15% of it’s people controlling 75% to 82% of the wealth of our country, is not a fair and democratic nation.
It is no difference than robber barons and the high and mighty blue bloods of yester year! and if you call me liberal or lefty or commie well, then you do not know me!
they have been telling blue collar workers that crap for 30 years! and where are they? a citizen that lays blame on the working principles of our nation?? firing squads is what they need!
I have worked since I was 11. self employed 80% . i never asked for jack.
but let me tell you a fact. the robber barons back in 1850 through 1935, amassed huge fortunes. while the people who performed the work to make America great, fought the wars and were left broke dying unable to earn any longer ..Read Uptain Sinclairs “The Jungle” about meat packing plants
that is why they created SSI and other programs and we paid into it and guess what? i am shy a few years from the us age for ssi. well, they said forget what you contributed for 53 years, only what you made the last 7 will count!
those who know me or have read my thousands of writings, know i am RIGHT OF CENTER –but when it comes to a nation that pays its top people billions while calling out the true blood of america as cowards , lazy, and not entitled to a piece of the pie.. well that is a plain “never knew what was up” attitude! I am amazed. and do not yell me how and why and i do not wanna hear that lame speak! how many of your children enlisted??
Getting back to the taxes– taxes where placed to not allow the rich to simply override the rest of the population. what?? Anti Trust Laws/ they were originally set up to break up companies that controlled every thing in one field of endeavor not allowing others to participate! And then the taxes were added NOT FOR THE MILITARY that is crap! maybe in 199 through 1840! bbIt truly my brother, are you to say that new laws are no good cause they are not were not written 200 years ago? if so, both civil and criminal acts and actions do not warrant a SUPREME COURT! get it???
a billionaire whom amasses huge wealth has every opportunity to keep almost all of it. a tax on some of it is simply faiur cause we the sht workers have had to pay even when we are broke, hurt, ill or have children whose lives have cost us hundreds of thousands due to the fact people keep saying we should not tax those whom are blessed with wealth???
do you know what we spent on war over the last two decades? wars that got worse??? here you talk about the military! holy craziness! have you read about the new jet fighters? the cost per plane? the fact they are not right after a decade of trillions?? ships that are costing billions that have broken down???
sorry my brother, i love you guys, but fact is, some times i simply cannot believe that you still believe that GOD will deliver justice/?/ forget the law??? but read your bible and then look at how the wealthy do not care.. am i commie?? a socialist?? hardley, sht, hardly any one can meet my endreavors in life, you know why i brag?? cause living in abject poverty while 75% of america ate and did not have to watch their mother steal hamburger meat to fee her hungry children.. and again this is modern times..woe to those whom do not repect assist and jkhelp the children of god…
a note, my mother, a sick woman who died less than mif 50’s, lost her husband to murder.. makes no diff how or why only that she had 5 kids. yet she worked all night tending bar– and dat was dat and not what it is today. she came home with meager earnings and we were on welfare. and contrary to all the BS i read, we barely got buy. 54 years of terrible hard life in the1960/1970’s! 100 per month and yellow cheese freeze dried eggs and milk once a month! stop blaming those whom may not live up to your rules! it does not mean they ae all leeches! the wealthy need to be taxed and dats dat!
