  • Should the IRS be abolished?   |   Budget & Spending    5 years, 1 month ago

    I do favor getting rid of the IRS. A flat tax or sales tax or any number of methods will be far better,easier to comply with and terminate what is basically a unchecked police state -within-a -state.
    I also […]

  • Consumer Debt Problems   |   Economy    5 years, 2 months ago

    Your George Carlin quote is a keeper.
    Lot of smart discussion above.
    I really agree with Nico that a discussion about credit cards turning into a “social”issue is pretty far afield.

  • Should the government be involved in marriage?   |   Social Issues    5 years, 2 months ago

    I find my leanings are for goverment to stay COMPLETELY out of marriages.
    It is just wrong on so many counts.
    Laws,taxes are based on marriages so the government is not disinterested party.
    If two individual […]

  • Knowledge is Power   |   Social Issues    5 years, 2 months ago

    well said Nico.
    As Will Rogers used to say,

  • I also have an issue with the statement that Tea Partiers don’t want to pay their “fair Share”
    Maybe they just get tired of paying the shares of others and watching the money WASTED on stupid ideas like […]

  • I am really appalled by Brandon’s comments that since the “Tea Party” is against the IRS it is OK that the IRS targets the Tea Party.
    The IRS is the most powerful government entity next to the military..

  • Spending out of control   |   Budget & Spending   5 years, 2 months ago

    While there is a lot of talk about the tax rate one should remember that the spending is the real key.
