Forum Post: Permanent Tax Cuts For the Wealthy! WTF!

Posted 8 years ago on Nov. 17, 2011, 11:35 a.m. EST by HitGirl (2263)

That is the latest Republican offer on the Super Committee: Significant cuts to Social Security and Medicare with some token revenue by limiting deductions. And they call that a fair offer.

These people are toxic. Vote them out!

however, all citizens have long ago been forcefully INCORPORATED, this is the basis for the 2010 SCOTUS ruling that actual atrificial entities are entitled to the same rights as citizens.... as WE too are artificial entities, not entitled to the same rights as a natural man.

So does that mean that I don't have to pay taxes like these "people"?

Who is a "natural man" ....................... the 1%? Must be. Their rights are different than the rest of us. They have rights - we don't ............. At least for now!

Research and you will learn the answers to these questions.

[-] 1 points by mandodod (144) 8 years ago

You think it is all the Republicans? There are crazy rich Dems also. All these folks write the tax codes. Why would rich people in power write a fair tax code? Think about that. There are Zillionaire Dems out there. Why do you think they are so rich?

[-] 1 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

There are Dino's and there are Rino's out there but the fact remains that it is the Republicans that are making this disgusting, lopsided offer and the Democrats that are preventing this from becoming a toxic reality.

Say anything and they will believe it. pure propaganda

There's a link to the story, Einstein. But I imagine you're referring to the story. There are news sources you can trust. It's not all FOX out there.

maybe you should read the whole article instead of the first 5 lines

I've read it. I'm not impressed.

Depending on the loopholes cut, this may not be bad.

Have any of you ever filed long form with a Schedule C, and other schedules?

I have since I was taught how.

There is no reason for any enlightened person, making less than 250,000/year, to ever have tax liability by just playing The Game, by their rules.

Now, this is a wickedly effective trump card the 99% hold. If half played it (W2 workers get business license and file long form), it would be a results gleaning and head turning tax revolt.

The DC puppets are praying this never happens..... and it should have already.........

Pat Toomey does not inspire my confidence in the plan. He is as bad as Ryan.

[-] 1 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 8 years ago

Well regardless, even if their stop-gap, time-buying ideas are remotely viable, the system is corrupt and FUBAR.

[-] 1 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

It seems remarkably inefficient, but I still prefer it to an efficient tyranny. We the People need to get the money out AND make sure it never returns. We need a constitutional amendment.

[-] 1 points by FrogWithWings (1367) 8 years ago

A constitutional amendment is too late, it's very direct language has been imputed lightly and perversely so, in order to serve the masters of this planet.

I do believe a Constitutional Convention will be the only way, short of bloodshed, to reclaim the people's government, and the Highest Law of the Land, the US Constitution.

No need to be partisan, most of the dems on the supercommittee will probably sign the tax cuts off with glee.

[-] 3 points by GirlFriday (17435) 8 years ago

And that is the truth.

[-] 2 points by technoviking (484) 8 years ago

dems are emasculate, spineless, gormless fools who have no bargaining power and no ability to arm twist the reps into any kind of agreement whatsoever. with the american public secured in the trammels of a guillotine and the reps in control of the trigger, the reps have the dems wrapped around their little finger.

I wish they would just phase out SS and Medicare all together. All this messing with it is just making things worse down the road. People should be saving for their own retirement, and if poor enough they can get welfare and have to live with that stigma.

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

The majority of Americans don't agree. It is an insurance policy that we pay into and there's no corporate CEO making billions off it.

[-] -2 points by Daennera (765) from Griffith, IN 8 years ago

How about we make it opt in then? If it's really so great, why do we have to force people to pay into it?

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

Because it has to be paid for.

[-] -2 points by Daennera (765) from Griffith, IN 8 years ago

But if it's so great then nearly everyone will want to sign up for it anyways and then it will be paid for.

So again, if it's such a great idea, why do we have to force people to do it?

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

Because people can be greedy, self-centered pigs when it comes to money.

[-] -2 points by Daennera (765) from Griffith, IN 8 years ago

You mean self interested? You mean that thing that kinda keeps us alive too. So you're saying we need to have government put a gun to our heads because we're too stupid to do what's best for ourselves.

Yeah, I don't think so. I decide what happens to my earnings, the government really needs to stay out of it. They need only do things that promote economic growth. Hand holding needs to end.

[-] 4 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

Why don't you join your buddies Hitler and Stalin in the ash-heap of history. When you've convinced the majority of Americans that your not just a greedy self-centered throw-back maybe I'll listen to your opinions.

[-] 0 points by Daennera (765) from Griffith, IN 8 years ago

Yeah I'm sooo greedy because I need to feed and house my family FIRST instead of having my earnings stolen to feed and house everyone else.

Have you ever actually earned anything in your life, or has it all been handed to you by someone else?

[-] 1 points by HitGirl (2263) 8 years ago

If you don't fight for a just society, you're not likely to have one. And the injustice will catch up to you sooner or later. Nobody is being taxed so that they can't feed their family and you know it.
