This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

A Solution To The IRS

I received this in my email from a Yankee. It makes sense so, here it goes.

Hi!

As the democrats think up more creative ways to spend tax payer dollars on new services without consideration for funding the existing tax payer funded services; and, as the long war on terror is not ending anytime soon; and, vets healthcare/disability payments are only going to increase for the foreseeable future it seems the only thing Congress can do is cut funding for non-essential services.

YEA RIGHT! We all know this isn't going to happen from either side of the aisle.

You all know I'm a staunch advocate for abolishing the federal income tax and replacing it with a consumption tax. A form of consumption tax already exists with taxes placed exclusively on cigarettes and alcohol. In fact, the children's healthcare proposal W just vetoed would've been funded with a .61 cent tax on cigarettes. According to the left, this makes me a "radical right wing repubican," yeah, whatever. The problem with changing how our government collects money from the people doesn't soley rest with Congress. It also rests with everyone who doesn't pay income taxes. Those who pay no income or payroll tax are completely disconnected from the pain of heavy income/payroll taxes. Money comes from somewhere; but, not them.

So, as a way to increase tax revenue for our government, get healthcare to the 10,000,000 children whose parents are to negligent to get for them, provide additional funding for the long war on terrror, increase additional revenue to HELP fund ALL veterans comprehensive healthcare and increase vet disability payments; all WITHOUT losing W's tax cuts; and ingratiating the public at large with the concept of a consumption based tax I thought up the following:

I. With regard to funding children's healthcare: institute a .61 cent tax on diapers and novelty items for children (i.e. stickers, headbands, jewlery...)

II. With regard to HELP fund the long war on terror: institute a 1.5% tax on phone services (land lines, faxes, cell phones, PDAs), and a 1.5% tax on cable/satellite TV services as well as satellite radio services. Congress instituted a phone tax to pay for the Spanish War. That war lasted 4 months and the tax to pay for it lasted 108 years.

III. With regard to HELP fund ALL veterans comprehensive health care and increase vet disability payments: institute a 2% tax on pre-paid phone cards and pre-paid disposable cell phones and a 0.1 cent tax on each text message.

Would appreciate your input.


Sounds GREAT to me!!
