    Don’t try that at home. Those crazy Russians are professionals.

    I haven’t researched this yet. It supposedly comes from the Ron Paul campaign.
    *************************************************

    The only thing politicians love more than spending your money is taking more of it.

    As early as next week, statists in BOTH parties are set to ram through a new taxing scheme that’s been years in the works – the National Internet Tax Mandate.

    Should it pass, every man, woman, and child in the country will feel the pinch as Congress takes a MASSIVE bite out of American prosperity.

    Campaign for Liberty President John Tate explains below why the National Internet Tax Mandate scheme is so dangerous. Please read his email and take action IMMEDIATELY.

    ————————————-
    …there’s more…
    ————————————-
    Call it the Valentine’s Day Tax Massacre.

    On February 14, 2013, statists in Congress introduced S. 336, the National Internet Tax Mandate.

    Of course, the tax-and-spenders sponsoring the bill mislabeled it the “Marketplace Fairness Act.”
    Designed as a fat Valentine’s Day “I LOVE YOU” to big spending politicians, this dangerous bill would hand the federal government massive new controls over state tax policies and set the stage for government at all levels to take another helping of your money via the Internet.
    That’s why it’s critical you sign the petitions I’ve made up for you DEMANDING your Representative and Senators vote “NO” on the statists’ National Internet Tax Mandate scheme.

    I’ll give you the link shortly, but first let me explain exactly why this is so important…

    Currently, because of the Founders’ vision for our country, states are “laboratories” – free to set their own tax policies. High tax, big spending, highly regulatory state governments send businesses and citizens alike fleeing across state lines in search of more liberty.

    But under the National Internet Tax Mandate scheme, the statists are setting the stage to bring it all to a crashing halt. Under the new National Internet Tax Mandate:

    *** All Americans would see their taxes go up as big spending governors of BOTH parties work with the federal government’s IRS goons to implement a state sales tax on ALL goods purchased online.

    Big spending governors are running their states into bankruptcy, and – instead of reducing spending – they want the IRS to force YOU to bail them out with new Internet taxes!

    *** Tax collectors in one state would now be free to pursue retailers across state lines.

    For example, if a customer in New York makes a purchase from an online retailer in Texas, that retailer MUST collect New York’s exorbitant sales taxes and send it to New York’s tax collection agencies;

    *** New and higher taxes would CRUSH economic growth and set the stage for massive new regulations that threaten the very existence of the Internet.

    Make no mistake. This is all bad enough on its face. But it’s hardly the end of it.

    You and I both know, under the guise of “national security,” establishment bureaucrats are already feverishly looking for new ways to trace, track, and register all Americans’ online activity.

    What you read. What you buy. What videos you watch. What you write about THEM.
    Now the one-world socialists at the United Nations want in on the action, as well.

    Just a few months ago, the U.N. drafted a new “Telecommunications Treaty” to impose restrictive regulations, global CENSORSHIP, and a massive new tax on all Internet operations.

    If ratified by the United States Senate, the United Nations’ “Telecommunications Treaty” – designed to take effect in 2015 – could give control of the Internet to U.N. bureaucrats.

    Ultimately, the U.N. hopes to use this scheme to take a tax bite out of the TRILLIONS of dollars exchanging hands via Internet commerce – money that will make the U.N. a true world government.

    And this National Internet Tax Mandate is playing right into their hands.

    That’s why it’s so critical you sign your No National Internet Tax Petition and make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, or $35 to C4L IMMEDIATELY.

    Even if you can only chip in $20 or $10, it will make a tremendous difference.

    Just like the Wall Street bailouts and the recent “deal” over tax hikes, this new National Internet Tax Mandate is “bipartisan” to its core.
    And the statists in BOTH parties are determined to RAM this scheme into law quickly before you and I have a chance to react.

    Governors from all over the country who literally CANNOT wait to be FORCED to raise taxes are busy bending the ears of Congress.

    Now, some of the loudest voices in Congress are Republicans who think you simply don’t care about this critical issue.

    Will you stand by while the big taxers impose yet another tax on hardworking Americans?

    Do you simply shrug your shoulders at the thought of United Nations global socialists shutting down the free flow of information worldwide?

    Or will you help me FIGHT BACK?

    Please take a moment to sign your petitions DEMANDING your Representative and Senators vote “NO” on the National Internet Sales Tax IMMEDIATELY.

    And if you can, please make your most generous contribution to C4L TODAY.

    Your generosity will help me alert hundreds of thousands of Americans to this critical fight and stop the National Internet Tax Mandate.

    C4L will use mail, email, and hard-hitting Internet ads – and even newspaper, radio, and TV ads, if necessary.

    It won’t be cheap.

    But it will be what it takes to win.

    So in addition to signing your petition, won’t you please agree to your most generous contribution of $100, $50, or $35 IMMEDIATELY?

    Even if all you can do is chip in $10 or $20 to this fight, please do so right away.

    There’s literally no time to waste.

    In Liberty,
    (signed)
    John Tate
    President

    P.S. Members of BOTH parties in Congress are working feverishly to unleash a new National Internet Tax Mandate.

    If passed, the new National Internet Tax Mandate would hand the federal government massive new controls over state tax policies, setting the stage for government at all levels to take another helping of your money via the Internet.

    That’s why it’s critical you sign the petitions DEMANDING your Representative and Senators vote “NO” on the statists’ National Internet Tax Mandate scheme – and then make your most generous contribution of $100, $50, or $35 to C4L IMMEDIATELY.

    Even if all you can do is chip in $10 or $20 to this fight, please do so right away.

    This was an email I got from the Ron Paul Campaign. I’ve yet to do more research on it.

    What do you all think?

      I’m really going to have to restrain my cursing today…and believe me, this video makes me want to rant really bad.

    • I can’t help but think that the damage to our educational system will be the real nightmare legacy of this regime. That’s where so much of our stolen money is going. They certainly think that’s how they’ll get us. Recently, Debbie Whatsername Schultz said she thought Texas would turn Blue soon, and Big Janet said the same thing about Arizona.

      They think they’re gonna re-educate us all into happy progs.

      • freedom1781 says:

        Obama’s administration just sped up the destruction of the educational system; it’s been going on for years.

        • zmalfoy says:

          Yep. that’s why I left as soon as I got a peek behind the curtain. No way was I gonna be a part of that. (And no, there would have been no “choice” about it . . . )

    • texan59 says:

      If it’s happening before our eyes, you can take the tin-foil off. Common Core, Race to The Top, CSCOPE. They are pretty much birds of a feather. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

      • Coyote says:

        I was being facetious, tex.
        It’s beyond the tin foil stage now…that, and now there is PROOF!

        Truthfully, is there a way to stop it if there has been such a stealthy move to implement it? The people in power have spent a lot of time, money and effort to put it there…the minions are not about to relinquish any iota of power they feel they have over the parents….AND they’ve not listened to the PEOPLE for quite some time.

        HOW do you wrestle this from them? The politicians are NOT about to let go of this and elections do no good. Once these go in the books as laws, history shows us that they never get removed.

        What do we do.

        This kind of permanence concerns me gravely.

        • texan59 says:

          I recently got in touch with my district “education” rep to find out what’s being taught in my grandkids school. For the time being, none of these BS curriculums is in there. I don’t trust ’em though.

  3. Happy Holy Thursday, Folks. Commemoration of the Last Supper. Good Friday is tomorrow, and Easter is a-comin’!

  4. Anyone seen Joe lately?

    From Diogenes.

  5. Too many molecular biologists defecting from neo-Darwinism leave the faithful “disturbed.”

  6. The education system is so bad that we pulled our oldest son out of school 25 years ago and never looked back. Believe me when I say the outcome is worth the effort. We have successfully home schooled all 10 of our children without drugs, gangs, sex education in 2nd grade, evilution, 3rd choices, x-rated movies in school, peer pressure, teacher pressure, other parents pressure, prom nights, rape, drugs, overwhelming pressure from every corner of godless people……..yeah I think it was/is worth the effort even though Both Parents couldn’t “make money” for the household. We are certainly Blessed beyond measure that is for sure. Public Schools? And we have to pay for all that? %^^%%^&*((*&LU^%$!
