    Why yes, nimrod, Duke Energy wants all of the people who produce their product to up and die. It’s just good business sense, to kill off the producers and consumers of your product.

    Have you cracked a single book on economics that was not written by Marx or Keynes? Rhetorical question, of course you haven’t. Hell I bet you’ve not even bothered to read those two theorists either, you seem to subsist on stock boilerplate.

    The taxes are voluntary as well, nobody is forced to hunt or fish, these are recreational activities, not necessities in modern life. Ergo, if you buy a license you are by implicit contract agreeing to the conservation fees. If you don’t like it you don’t have to buy a license. And you can even hunt on your own land or dig your own pond and not worry about licenses (state rules differ on this, check them first).

    I like the cut of your jib!

    Actually, Wodanaz, we do have a lot of choices that are voluntary. For example Cabela’s, the foremost outfitting chain for hunters, fishermen and shooters asks with every purchase “Would you like to round up to (upwards dollar amount on your total) for conservation?” Haven’t heard a person say no yet. That adds up, very fast. Then there are organizations that are voluntary associations that do conservations efforts.

    You’re out of your element here Wodanaz, you may wish to not post again lest you confirm your assumed status as camp fool.

    Or, you can shove off and stop trying to restrict speech. Churches have never been taxed, long before there was an IRS or IRS code. The reason is that they are exempt from political control. Your solution is to control them, or tax the crap out of them against all the wishes of the founding fathers. Take your left wing activism and go play in the road.

    Moron. The actual law says candidate. These are not candidates, they’re appointees.

    I guess some of you have real issues *reading* the law, eh?

    Most amendments = most amendments after the BOR. They should have written those directly into the document the first time, imo.

    To hell with any income tax. Cut government to Constitutional levels and remove all taxes on income.

    The 16th Amendment does not establish the IRS, idiot, it establishes a fundamentally unconstitutional ability to tax in a way denied to the government prior to the amendment. It was not even properly ratified. And frankly, no, I find most amendments, with the exception of a very, very few to be absolutely unnecessary and even subversive in intent and practice.

    Um…tea party?

  • April 22, 2014 at 12:29pm

    To be fair, the IRS is a violation of basically the entire purpose and concept of the Constitution.

    We both know the answer to that question Gonzo. And not surprisingly that number is also used as a nickname for the POTUS. Coincidence?

    Exactly.

    Here’s the deal folks. Stop trying to deal with the devil and get “tax exempt status”. These animals will turn on you in a heartbeat and have for quite a while now. Find another avenue that doesn’t involved these demons.

    Iran has fleets of commercial jets at its disposal. Why not just use one of those and nobody would see it coming at all. Makes no sense.

    Why? These are well financed groups (thank you Saudi Arabia), they could simply buy one on the open market without any of this intrigue. That’s where the “terrorists!” theory falls flat on its face, IMO.

    That’s really the only logical explanation. It’s so obvious that you’d think everybody would have immediately jumped to that conclusion.

    I feel sorrow for the loss of human life and am not commenting on them at all with this. That said I take a bit of silent comfort in the knowledge that our prideful reliance on technology to “know, hear and see” everything is really one giant joke. Hard to explain, and would make much less visceral discomfort if it had been an unmanned drone that disappeared, if you know what I mean.

    Fantastic idea.

    This is much ado about nothing.

    The pledge was written by a socialist to get people used to pledging their lives to the State. I have no use for it whatsoever. Whether “under God” is in it or not is irrelevant to me as well.

    Our country is being destroyed outright and our rights are being confiscated wholesale people, wake up. The status of a socialist pledge is the last thing we should worry about at this point.

    “Tresspass” assumes that the land belongs to somebody else. It doesn’t. There is zero Constitutional authority for an agency like the BLM to even exist, so it cannot possibly claim that it somehow has established The King’s Land, as they are doing.

    That’s something Beck has consistently missed. “But but but they owe the money legally…but but but….the state doesn’t dispute the BLM…but but but”

    But nothing. If the FedGov set up a Bureau of Minority Execution tomorrow and it started issuing kill decrees on all minorities (legally!) would Beck hold the same illogical position? Exactly.

  • April 22, 2014 at 7:11am

    Yeah, sue the federal government. That always works out well…as a money sink.
