Governments Conspire To Get More Revenue

Corporate_taxes Is the economy making governments worried that they need ways to catch more revenue, or are they just being governments? When I posted about how the U.S. government is greedy to shake down corporations for more revenue, I didn’t know that there was an international effort to sweep up more revenue across borders. Now I wonder if the story I wrote about had its ultimate origins in some government public relations office to soften up the public. The rule seems to be that we should always feel suspicious Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Federal Government Displays Corporate Greed

Taxes April 15th Corporate greed is when a corporation hunts down and takes massive amounts of revenue for itself and yet still wants more. The headline at makes it sound as if someone is breaking the law and committing criminal tax evasion, when they are actually simply following the law so that they don’t have to pay excess taxes. Corporations should prefer to limit their expenses so that they can offer better goods and services at a better price. There is nothing wrong with that. Here is the Read more [...] Continue reading →

Jeb Bush Is Right about Soak the Rich

eat the rich When he points out that tax breaks for the rich are not “unfair,” Jeb Bush Is right. I suppose this Politico headline will enrage many voters: “Jeb Bush defends tax breaks for wealthy.” The wealthiest Americans would receive sharply higher tax breaks under Jeb Bush’s tax proposal, the former Florida governor says, because they pay a disproportionate share of taxes in the first place. “The simple fact is 1 percent of people pay 40 percent of all the taxes,” Bush said on “Fox News Read more [...] Continue reading →

IRS Agent Arrested for Using Audit to Attempt Sexual Assault

irs bonuses With one IRS agent arrested now, how do we know this hasn’t happened before? Congress has already had to consider legislation banning federal workers from viewing porn on the job. Perhaps they now also need to craft a law that keeps them from committing sexual assault. The Washington Times reports, “IRS agent charged with sexual battery during audit.” An IRS agent has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman while he was performing an audit of a Tennessee business, police said. Samuel Read more [...] Continue reading →

Collecting Record Plunder but Still Adding to the Debt

cash vortex federal employees Despite an amazing amount of tax revenue in 2015, the government is still adding to the debt to the tune of $530 billion! Sometime in 2014 we started to get stories about how the deficit was “lowering.” Since the deficit is always adding to the debt of the nation, the fact that the deficit was lower one year than the year before meant nothing. The National debt keeps growing, and there is no plan to shrink it. If you tell someone their cancer is growing at a slower rate, that can be good Read more [...] Continue reading →

Liberals: Let’s Plunder Ivy League Endowments

Harvard Ivy League endowments are so tempting for money-hungry liberals who want to increase government debt leverage. The headline at Slate is quite clear: “Is It Time to Tax Harvard’s Endowment?” Of course, Jordan Weissmann's editorial is not just aimed at Harvard. It is aimed at all Ivy League endowments. I pretty much hate schools like Harvard and Yale. They rule us and control institutions like the Supreme Court. But I still hate Weissmann’s proposal. In 2014, the university’s legendary Read more [...] Continue reading →

Tax Exempt Organizations Fight to Hide Donors from Government

bigbrother is watching Tax Exempt Organizations have asked the Supreme Court to give them relief from California’s prying eyes. We all know now that a single political donation can get a CEO fired from the company he founded. That is why Mark Horne argued that the IRS should be abolished on First and Fourth Amendment grounds. The lesson here is that the plundering done by the IRS is not their worst feature. If all they did was loot us, we would be immeasurably better off. The IRS is another form of the NSA. They Read more [...] Continue reading →

More Taxes and Debt as Gov Consumes, but Spends More

tax_revenues-through_july-record-chart The government continues collecting more taxes and debt. That which is unsustainable will not be sustained. Back in September 2014, Bob Allen wrote about “Record Revenues for the Federal Government as the Debt Grows.” Sadly, the trend hasn’t stopped since then. CNS News reports, “$2,672,414,000,000: Federal Taxes Set Record through July; $17,955 Per Worker—Feds Still Run $465.5B Deficit.” The federal government raked in a record of approximately $2,672,414,000,000 in tax revenues Read more [...] Continue reading →

A Stupid Way for Republicans to Attack a Democrat: IRS Troubles

little house on the prairie IRS troubles could possibly indicate a character flaw, but not necessarily. Attacking someone for being behind in their taxes is not going to work well. As you may have heard, Melissa Gilbert is running for the House of Representatives to represent a district in Michigan. Gilbert was the actress who in her younger days played Laura Ingalls Wilder in the TV series, “The Little House on the Prairie.” The TV series was based on a book series by the real Laura Ingalls Wilder with a lot of editorial Read more [...] Continue reading →

According to the Washington Examiner, “House chairman: Documents prove IRS 'political targeting' of conservatives.” The chairman of the top House committee probing the IRS Read more [...] Continue reading →

Donate to Conservatives: Get Audited

irs delete Judicial Watch has emails that show the IRS used donor lists to decide who got audited. Once again we see the IRS needs to be abolished on First and Fourth Amendment. People are not free to communicate or advocate if they can be subjected to punishments for supporting causes that the IRS does not approve of. And they cannot be free of surveillance and spying if they are required to tell the IRS what causes they support. Being audited is excruciating, even if you are ultimately vindicated. And Read more [...] Continue reading →
