Did it ever cross your minds that almost all mass shootings were done by Liberals?  I can’t think of a single case where a Conservative NRA member did a theater, school, or mall shooting.  Am I missing something?  Or did I give everyone something to ponder?

WOW!  Watching Sean Hannity at CPAC tonight.  Scott Walker and Ted Cruz really had some good ideas.  I am starting to get enthused about the 2015 election.  I am getting convinced that a lot of Americans are actually starting to think.  And that is good…

When someone asked me why I love this country I answered…  because this country has always provided me freedom and opportunity.  Sadly, that is changing under our present administration.  But I am convinced that Hope and Change is on the way! The November election was a god start.

 Jim,

Thanks for the Gene Kelly Tap Dancing on Skates video. I was not aware of that 1955 movie. This number is right up there with "Singing in The Rain", his best performance, so say the critics! I think this one was much more difficult technically, needless to say! Keep on entertaining us, it is so thoughtful of you.

Richard,

Thanks  for doing the good work of the Tea Party.   You and Phil say everything better than I can, but it needs to be said.  I am still upset over the FCC internet regulations passed yesterday, another stake in the heart of freedom.  Wish I could trust the courts, but I don't.

Both the FCC and the IRS are unnecessary and should be eliminated.  They both do more damage to our country than good.  If we could only pass the "Fair Tax" the IRS could be completely eliminated as it is not necessary to have "tax collectors" if the "Fair Tax" were to be in place.

Now this seems like a chance to start a reasonable discussion.  Phil, what is the "Fair Tax"and how can you be so sure that everyone will pay it?  My experience and gut tell me that there are alwasy a certain number of people who will cheat if they think they can get away with it.

By the way, I seriously doubt that, as you seemed to suggest, recent mass murderers acted because of their political persuasions. What evidence do you have for that?

Bob, here are a couple of sites you can look at to see what the Fair Tax is.  It is basically a federal sales tax that replaces all other income and payroll taxes and according to several colleges, including Harvard, is revenue neutral.  Since it is a sales tax there is no need for the IRS.  It is collected by businesses who collect state sales tax now.  States don’t have an IRS to collect state sales taxes.  Wal-Mart does it.

The Fair Tax was introduced in 2013 by Neal Boortz and Rep. John Linder as HR-25.  It failed to come to the House primarily because if it ever did pass it would take a tremendous amount of power away from politicians and lobbyists in DC.

The Fair Tax is the ONLY tax plan where poor people, below the poverty level, do not pay ANY taxes.  Money spent on necessities is not taxed at all.  It is difficult to describe this tax plan in just a few words.  I have read two books on this plan and would love to discuss it with anyone.  Both books are available at Amazon.com and both are easy reads.

 

You cannot cheat on paying this tax because there are no loop holes, no deductions, and no exceptions.  You buy something, you pay the tax.

 

I would strongly recommend you read the books.  The first book explains the plan and the second book answers all  the questions people had after reading the first book.

 

As to your last comment that I suggested that all murderers act because of their political persuasion.  I didn’t say that at all.  I simply observed that most, if not all, mass shootings and killings were done by people of the liberal persuasion.  Google it.  Check for yourself.  Virtually every one of them from way back at the Texas tower shooting were liberals.  Yet it is the liberals who say they want to ban guns.  I’m sorry if this offends you but I believe it is true.  As usual, if I am wrong I will apologize.  Can you tell us of one conservative NRA member who did a mass killing?

 

Anyway, I’ve rambled on too long.  I just hope you do a little research into the Fair Tax system and I’d be interested to see what you think.

Bob, here is another site to look at including a video.  I wish he had spent more time on th details but at least it is an introduction to the Fair Tax.

Bob, just one more comment and then I’ll shut up.  Under our present tax plan criminals, drug dealers, and those who work for cash do not pay income taxes.  Under the Fair Tax EVERYONE regardless of their occupation, legal or illegal, will pay taxes.  Criminals like to buy boats, planes, big houses, expensive vacations etc.  They will pay a consumption tax on everything they purchase.  And therefore even the black market will generate tax revenue to operate our government.

 

Have a good evening and a good week.

Well, I see we just now got a one week extension on funding Homeland Security.  I guess that’s good.  But if we hadn’t gotten this extension only “non essential employees” would have been laid off.  My question is…  if there are non essential employees why do we have them in the first place?

 

I worked for ALCOA for 38 yyears and I don't ever remember hiring a non essential employee.  Is that just a government thing?

Well, we pretty much now know who the front runners are in the Republican Party.  But what about the Democrat Party?  It seems that Hillary Clinton is at the top of the list but I’m not sure who else is on the list.  I am trying to give Hillary Clinton a helping hand by developing a list of all of her achievements and accomplishments during her term as Secretary of State.  I am having a little difficulty with this and would like some help.  If you would please respond to me I will add her achievements and accomplishments to my list.  Thanks in advance.

Phil,                                                                             

1.  She has made Saul Alinsky a known quantity.

2.  When defined as a liberal, she said NO!  She was a proud Progressive, once again teaching us the direction of current democratic politics.

3.  She is paving the way to make foreign contibutions to political parties safe and legal.

Newt Gingrich is such a smart man and judging by the applause a lot of other people think so too.  I wish we had more like him.  I think we all do!

Bob Lindsay,

If you send me your mailing address I will have a copy of "The Fair Tax" book sent to you from Amazon.com.  All I would ask is that you read it.

Obama is intent on brokering a "deal" with Iran on nuclear weapons yet every single "deal" with Iran in the past has failed.  So for that Obama is throwing Israel under the bus.  Why do we let him get away with that?

Phillip Mathewson

GOOD NEWS! "We will NEVER allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon!...PERIOD!!!!"
UH - OH... Didn't someone also say "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. PERIOD!!!"?
