Fixin' Things

I had to make some minor adjustments to the battery strap in my car this morning.  I think my solution will work just fine.  Bebe is amazed at the number of things I can do with just some basic tools and my God given ingenuity.  I was gone for a few days and was too tired when I got back to post anything.  I purposely chose to stay away from the news as much as possible, but the adds are so transparent these days, one would have to be brain dead not to smell the social and political engineering going on there.  I guess they have to be like that to influence the 47% of Americans who pay no income taxes at all.  Actually many people who are permanent participants in the dole are making money through the various tax credits offered.  So, for those of you who seemed to be befuddled by this, the people we are paying with our tax dollars not to work also get money back from the IRS.  In addition to that they get their food and medical care paid for by your tax dollars.  I could go on, but if you can't figure it out there is no point.

Let me tell you one thing I learned early in life; "Nothing is free."  Someone pays for it.  I know many Americans who agree with my position on the unfairness of it all, but at the same time think nothing of taking some bogus credit to purchase a vehicle, or get some energy saving appliance.  It's all smoke and mirrors.  Those are our tax dollars being passed out like candy by a greedy political machine to buy votes.  Our tax dollars.  "Well someone is going to get it why not me?"  So, your position is, to heck with those of us trying our best to keep our country afloat.  Those dollars you took were partially yours( if you pay taxes), but they were also the hard earned property of your friends and neighbors.

Those census adds make me want to puke.  The census was established for one thing and one thing only; to determine the number of Representatives to assign to each region of the country by population.  That's found in Article One, Section Two of the United States Constitution.  It says nothing about redistributing the wealth.  It says nothing about providing additional information on the people legally populating the geographical subdivisions of our country.  But the adds imply our entire economy is dependent on your filling out the census form.  Your personal prosperity quotient, as assigned to you by your benevolent federal government, is determined by the census. But, not one question about your citizenship.   Social Security used to advertise itself as a retirement system funded by the government.  It's broke now, but I remember when the adds used to have a little jingle that went along with a cartoon of an elderly lady gathering eggs in her hen house.  The words were as follows: "I've got a nest egg just for me, and it's my Social Security."  At my retirement seminar a representative from the Social Security Administration told us it was never meant to be a retirement system.  I reminded him of the little jingle and he claimed never to have heard it.  Where did all that money go?  It was stolen by politicians to buy votes.

Who is in charge of the credits on Energy Saving Appliances currently in effect until the end of April?  The Department of Energy.  This behemoth was formed during the Carter years, if I recall correctly, to relieve our dependence on foreign oil.  It has grown exponentially through the intervening years, and guess what?  We are still dependent on foreign oil.  But they want you to forget that by giving you some of your hard earned tax dollars back in the form of an appliance credit.  It's not their money, but they are giving it away.  Shame on the merchants and citizens who participate in these programs.  Folks, we don't have any money.  All our tax dollars can't even keep up with the debt we now have and the Democrats are daily lying and buying everything they possibly can with the worthless paper they are printing. Every State should exercise its rights to the sovereign powers granted to it by the Tenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and refuse to be dictated to by the federal government.  The States and the people should hold the federal government accountable and refuse to cycle the money of its citizens through Washington.  Washington is only due taxes to pay for the things they are constitutionally permitted to deal with.  They have ignored our founding document and robbed our treasury without recompense or penalty.  It is time to put a stop to this criminal action and try those who are in charge for treason.

Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.

  1. Hag. 1:6..."and he that earneth wages earneth wages [to put it] into a bag with holes."...

    This excerpt is perfectly in context with today's post, it is a perfect example of what happens when people shirk their duties, put God on the sideboard, and let other people run their lives.

  2. Good post Pappy, and the comment quoting the scripture really puts it into perspective.

    It's hard to even watch the news anymore, we do, but it's so upsetting.

    Thanks for keeping it real over here. Blessings~~~

  3. Great post Pappy. We have excluded God from American life and now those who despise God lead our country. Unless there is revival we are done with as a great nation.
