I’m working on our taxes. It’s early to do taxes – usually I wait until the last possible minute to hand the paperwork over to our bookkeeper – but this year there are so many financial unknowns that I need to get everything done as soon as possible so we can start saving money to pay off our oppressors.
I made an appointment for February 6 to meet with our tax preparer, and it will take her about a week to figure out how much hush money we’ll need to fork over to our benevolent government. It might take us several months to save up in order to pay Uncle Sam. Since we’re self-employed (meaning, we don’t have withholdings from a monthly paycheck), the amount is likely to be huge. Enormous. Staggering. “I wouldn’t be surprised,” noted Don, “if we’re forced to pay an additional month’s worth of income on top of what we will already owe.”
It doesn’t matter that we would prefer our money to go elsewhere – our church, our daughter’s braces, paying extra on our mortgage. It doesn’t matter that WE earned our money, not the government. It doesn’t matter. We all need to bleed a lot more in order to provide Hope and Change to people who haven’t earned it.
Welcome to Amerika.
I talked with some friends recently and learned they’ve already had a $300 decrease in their monthly paycheck. This is a single-income family barely making ends meet – and now they’re forced to surrender a huge chunk of their hard-earned money to an out-of-control group of federal thugs who will do unspeakable things with it.
It’s no wonder this country is simmering with resentment. Anger. Fury.
You see, productive Americans are tired of supporting an entitlement class eating high on the hog while we’re buying beans, rice, and second-hand socks. We resent being told we MUST partake of a product we don’t want (socialized medicine) or face punitive punishment. We’re tired of being called domestic terrorists if we happened to agree with the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We’re tired of continued attempts by government goons to infringe on our right to bear arms.
And we’re TIRED OF HYPOCRITES like Dianne Feinstein who want to “fingerprint, photograph and investigate Americans who already have weapons.” You do this to criminals. YOU DON’T DO THIS TO LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.
I’m in a position to see and hear a lot of this resentment, and I can testify it’s growing by leaps and bounds. It’s becoming louder and more bitter. It’s coming from people who are weary beyond belief, weary of intrusive and unconstitutional invasions into peoples’ private lives and personal incomes. And believe me when I say the last straw will be continued attempts to whittle away at our Second Amendment rights.
Our politicians are paying no heed whatsoever to this resentment. Surrounded by fawning sycophants, they dismiss any and all opposition as unimportant and juvenile. They choose to label anyone who feels stepped upon as tinfoil hat-wearers bitterly clinging to various important things.
And I’m here to tell them: PAY ATTENTION. We the People are getting fed up. You REALLY don’t want to wake a sleeping giant.
YOU REALLY DON’T.
