The IRS is coming!
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/5/2013 12:27:14 PM

July The Fourth naturally brings the following verses to mind. Listen my children and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere (Snip) Fewer still remember that through the chain of causality Revere was warning that the tax collector — in the shape of its enforcers, the Redcoats — was coming. The War of Independence was to a nontrivial extent about the manner and level at which taxes should be levied. The Declaration’s bill of grievances mentions this explicitly. It said of George III, “he has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers

Comments:
Everyone on this news forum should find a few minutes to read and mull over this timely and topical essay, which calls for the repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment and the elimination of the metastasizing tax code and the IRS. Democrats and Establishment Republicans will say that such a course of action is impossible. Nothing is impossible, fellow LDotters. Doing the impossible is what you and I were born to do. Now let´s tackle the task, even if it requires voting 90% of Congress out of their seats. The status quo is unacceptable. America must be reestablished, reborn.

I agree with the OP. Conservatives by definition are reluctant to embrace radical political change. Be that as it may, I can see no better conservative argument than repeal of the 16th amendment. That should be a threshold platform position for any elected official, federal or state since the states are required to ratify a Constitutional amendment if passed by Congress. There is tremendous power in this for red states if the issue could ever get through Congress.

Yes OP. We MUST quit saying there is nothing we can do. The Republican establishment has beat the conservatives over the head with that lie long enough. In the TX Panhandle, a strong opponent to Mac Thornberry has come on the scene. We must replace these career pols, one by one, until we again have public SERVANTS. Even Thornberry, who is a good man, promised he did not believe in staying in but oh, they get in there and you can´t get them outta there. Yes, to do this will cost and it won´t be easy. We CAN do it.

The $2.2 Billion Bird-Scorching Solar Project
Wall Street Journal, by Cassandra Sweet    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 2/13/2014 5:44:27 PM     Post Reply
A giant solar-power project officially opening this week in the California desert is the first of its kind, and may be among the last, in part because of growing evidence that the technology it uses is killing birds. (Snip) BrightSource wants to build a second tower-based solar farm in California´s Riverside County, east of Palm Springs. But the state Energy Commission in December proposed that the company instead use more conventional technologies, such as solar panels or mirrored troughs. One reason: the BrightSource system appears to be scorching birds that fly through the intense heat surrounding the towers, which can

Daniel Mitchell at Cato makes the trite but shockingly simple observation that it is only necessary to stop increasing expenses to balance the budget without raising taxes. (Snip) Being caught on a Ponzi treadmill is no fun. Pretty soon you start throwing even your close associates to the wolves. Anything to live for one more second. Perhaps that is why even Democratic candidates are engaged in the remarkable spectacle of distancing themselves from a program their president supported. They don’t want to be flattened by the rock.

TAMPA — Everything was fine on the roller coaster - at first. Every seat was taken on the Cheetah Hunt ride at Busch Gardens at about 2:30 p.m. The 16 people on board, ranging from teenagers to those in their 70s, braced themselves for the rush that comes with defying gravity. Then, unexpectedly, the ride stopped, with the cars about 60 feet up in the air. The ride operator tried to nudge the cars back to their station, but that didn’t work. To make matters worse, a storm was heading toward the park. For one of the few times in

STARKE, Fla. — A man was executed Wednesday night in Florida for raping and killing a 9-year-old boy 18 years ago, a death that spurred the victim´s parents to press nationwide for stronger sexual predator confinement laws and better handling of child abduction cases. Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, was pronounced dead at 8:17 p.m. Wednesday after a lethal injection at Florida State Prison, according to Gov. Rick Scott´s office. Chavez made no final statement in the death chamber, though prison officials said he had submitted something in writing. He moved his feet frequently after the injection began at 8:02 p.m.

Investigators are likely to close the file on Michael Schumacher’s skiing accident in the next few days - according to a report in Germany. After a four-week inquiry newspaper Bild reports French investigators have passed their conclusions to the office of investigating prosecutor Patrick Quincy And, sources say, in all likelihood the file will be closed. That means the makers of the equipment Schumacher was using, the manufacturer of the helmet he was wearing and the authorities who put up signage on the slopes around the rocky off-piste slopes near Meribel will effectively be cleared of any involvement in the

Witness: Car in USF students´

A sport-utility vehicle may have driven four miles or more in the wrong direction on Interstate 275 before crashing head-on into a car carrying four University of South Florida fraternity members and killing them. Troopers today were reviewing evidence from the horrific wreck, which also killed the driver of the SUV. Who he is and why he was driving the wrong way early Sunday morning remained unanswered questions. One key to the answers: Which entrance onto the interstate did the driver take to end up going south in the northbound lanes — or did he make a U-turn across the

WASHINGTON -- A captain’s “reckless decision to sail into the well-forecasted path of Hurricane Sandy” was the probable cause of the HMS Bounty sinking off the North Carolina coast in 2012, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a report released Monday. The captain, 63-year-old Robin Walbridge, and one crew member, 42-year-old Claudene Christian, died in the accident. The remaining 14 crew members, three of whom were seriosuly injured, were rescued by the Coast Guard. On October 25, a day after the closely watched developing storm reached hurricane strength, the 108-foot-long tall wooden ship set sail from New London, Conn.,

Mourners gathered on the side of Interstate 275 on Sunday evening to lay a wreath, bouquets and candles near the site of a fiery crash that killed four University of South Florida fraternity brothers and the driver who struck them head-on several hours earlier. (Snip) The crash happened just after 2 a.m. A 2001 Ford Expedition was traveling south in the northbound lanes of I-275, just north of Busch Boulevard, said Steve Gaskins, spokesman for the Florida Highway patrol.

A year ago, the seat was not on anyone’s radar screen. The Republicans didn’t have to defend it, and the Democrats couldn’t even dream of it. Then, like a lot of things in politics, things suddenly changed. Bill Young announced his retirement and said he would not run for re-election in 2014. Suddenly, it was a marginal seat for the fall elections. Republicans were in a panic, and the Democrats were salivating. A week later Young passed away, and the seat was a high blip on the political radar screen. Not only is it in play, but it becomes a

Tribune endorsement: David Jolly

Voters should ignore the distortions and name calling in the negative TV advertising for the District 13 congressional race and instead focus on which candidate is better prepared to represent constituents. (Snip) Both candidates are smart and capable, but we give the nod to Jolly because of his experience working with Young and his more conservative views. We also worry about a complete loss of legislative balance if enough Democrats are elected in this fall’s midterm election to have a majority in the House, leaving a single party to control the Senate, the House and the White House.

Beware the green decoys

In nature, camouflage is often a defensive strategy. It allows prey to escape detection. But in politics, camouflage can be used by the predators just as well. And it appears many traditionally left-leaning foundations have now found their own camouflage among a traditionally right-leaning community: sportsmen’s groups. Many of these organizations started out furthering an agenda that ensured hunters and anglers could continue their favorite pastime for generations to come. But more recently, many of these groups have been co-opted by wealthy grant-making bodies notorious for their support of anti-gun, radical environmentalist agendas, all the while purporting to represent the

First Lady Michelle Obama apparently halted private-jet traffic at Aspen airport as she landed for a weekend of skiing while President Obama headed to California. Michelle, with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, was expected to touch down in Aspen Friday to spend Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend away from her husband, who was meeting late Friday with Jordan’s King Abdullah II in Rancho Mirage, Calif. Mrs. Obama’s arrival amid tight security was expected to delay the arrival of other wealthy vacationers on private jets at the Colorado ski resort.

Jonathan Turley, faithful Obama supporter and liberal professor of constitutional law at Sandra Fluke´s alma mater, Georgetown University Law School, is sounding the alarm that "a system in which a single individual is allowed to rewrite legislation or ignore legislation is a system that borders on authoritarianism." Question for Mr. Turley: what kind of constitutional law professor votes for an inexperienced community organizer who believes that the U.S. Constitution is "fundamentally flawed" in the first place?

A growing group of Ted Cruz’s Republican Senate colleagues are infuriated with his tactics. So frustrated was Arizona Senator John McCain with the latest, forcing fellow Republicans to take a politically risky vote on lifting the debt ceiling, that yesterday he tweeted a Wall Street Journal editorial accusing the Texas lawmaker of instigating “needless drama that helps to explain why Republicans remain a minority.” (Snip)Cruz’s insistence Feb. 12 on a 60-vote threshold to advance legislation lifting the nation’s borrowing cap foiled his party leadership’s plan to let the measure move forward with only Democratic votes.

CHATTANOOGA, TENN. — The UAW suffered a devastating defeat at Volkswagen’s plant here as workers rejected union representation by a 712-626 margin.The defeat, which came despite Volkswagen’s neutrality, tarnishes UAW President Bob King’s legacy and could make it next to impossible for the union to extend its reach beyond domestic automakers.
“While we certainly would have liked a victory for workers here, we deeply respect the Volkswagen Global Group Works Council, Volkswagen management and (German union) IG Metall for doing their best to create a free and open atmosphere for workers to exercise their basic human right to form a union,” King said in a statement.

Washington Republicans on Sunday restated their argument that President Obama has violated the Constitution by using executive orders to alter the Affordable Care Act, but acknowledged they likely have no recourse or ability to stop another incident. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, told “Fox News Sunday” that congressional Republicans think the president abused the government’s separation of powers by using the executive orders to sidestep Congress and delay the law’s employer mandate. “The president knows this is wrong.” - Sen.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

Americans watching the Affordable Care Act’s implementation are witnessing a government policy debacle that is as large as any in memory. It is hard to imagine a more vivid demonstration of the ruinous consequences of government stepping into a market in which it doesn’t belong. And, sadly, what we are seeing now is only the beginning of the policy’s failure. In its most updated assessment of the ACA, the government’s own Congressional Budget Office caught the Democrats flat-footed by projecting that the law is severely flawed on a number of fronts, matching in many ways what the ACA opponents clearly

Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democratic-controlled Senate, it was clear that this particular bill was going to be passed and sent to the president for his signature. But Cruz didn´t want to let Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., off the hook and give President Obama a blank check to once again increase the debt ceiling as we are drowning in red ink. He didn't want Republicans to simply vote against the bill, hiding behind the Democrat majority who were sure to pass it.
