    ” It all adds up to a huge tax bill — for you.”
     
    isn’t that what slaves are for. At least they didn’t just exterminate them in huge mass graves.

    It’s the looting of America by its new wannabee aristocracy. The productive class (golden goose) is being stripped of its wealth by the parasitic class to the point where it lacks the sustenance to lay any more golden eggs.
     
    Meanwhile, America’s Sun King Clinton family highlights a $5.0 million wedding for the princess in a triumphal statement on the ascendency of the Chicago-style corruptocracy in America, a la Gatsby.
     
    Barring a revolution, the golden goose will die

    Under a little-noticed provision of the recently passed financial-reform legislation, the Securities and Exchange Commission no longer has to comply with virtually all requests for information releases from the public, including those filed under the Freedom of Information Act.

    Once again, we’re on the same page.  The adage the ‘Pen is mightier than the sword’ seems to have more credence than ever, but held in the hands of Congress, it becomes a nuclear device.
     
     
    Beating swords into plowshares.
     
    They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

    Sue, they will never be finished with *anything*.  The left’s Rube Goldberg machines of government programs require constant tweaking as they keep breaking down all over the place in unforeseen ways.  (That’s because their complexity is completely untenable, and ObamaCare is only the most recent example of the insanity.)

    Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.  We will always be up against the government planners, always, who think if they can only construct the perfect machine (program), government will be able to micromanage every aspect of our lives for our betterment.
