It’s here – mandatory Universal National Service Act

I never believed I would see this in America but here it is. Right now, I’m so dumbfounded, I can’t possibly post. This is about my children. How can this be possible? And NO PRESS??? NO MEDIA coverage of this??? What kind of country has this become?

Thanks to Charlie Rangel for this.

H. R. 5741

Joe McGinniss, such a jerk.

By the time this guy gets his book in bookstores, no one will care what he has to say – virtually no one cares now.

From FoxNews:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said her family’s had to change its behavior ever since a writer working on a book about her moved in next door. She said writer Joe McGinniss needs to “get a life.”

Palin, in an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” said McGinniss is still living in the house next to hers in Wasilla, Alaska, after moving in this year. Though the Palin family constructed a 14-foot-high fence after McGinniss arrived, the former vice presidential candidate said the family is making a conscious effort to stay out of his sight.

“We just avoid certain angles in the house, and we avoid the front yard, and we are doing a lot of things out and about around Alaska to have our summer fun and our outdoor recreation,” Palin said. “We’ve changed our behavior as a result of our new neighbor.”

McGinniss is a bestselling author who also wrote a magazine article critical of Palin when she was a vice presidential candidate. He stirred controversy when he moved in next door to Palin, but Palin said Sunday that he’ll probably return to the East Coast in October.

“Some people just need to get a life. Bless his heart, he needs to get a life,” she said.

Asked whether her family was just going “with the flow,” she quipped: “Only dead fish go with the flow.”

McGinniss said in June that he wasn’t spying on Palin’s family — just interviewing people who live in the area and know the family. In an interview with NBC at the time, he said he was receiving threatening e-mails and accused Palin of letting loose “the hounds of hell” in the wake of his decision to move in.

Steve Moore: we’re all screwed after December 31. Happy new year.

Well Nancy, you passed the bill and we will be finding out for months what’s in it – what you and your party has done to us. You know, we the folks who all make less than $250K/year?

Steve Moore of the WSJ said in a Heritage speech in Michigan last month that as of January 1, we will see the largest tax increase in this nations history. Capital gains will go up to over 20% from 15%. Dividend tax will increase from 15% to 43%. That is almost triple. He said that this will mean no dividends will be paid to investors. Microsoft paid out $40billion dollars in dividends in ’05, the largest in history and when asked about this Bill Gates stated it was because of the Bush tax cuts. That won’t be happening again for a long while.

How will this affect those folks with 401K’s? Many working people in this country have those accounts through their employers.

Business taxes go up from 35% to 40%. That means less, or almost no, new business development and investment. Moore said that 2 out of 3 of those people who will be hit the hardest with these tax increases all own, operate or invest in small businesses. These are the job creators – or should I say, were the job creators.

But the most dramatic increase will be the return of the death tax – from zero to 55%, literally overnight. (Bernie Saunders (socialist VT) wants that increase to be 65%!) The effect this will have on family businesses and family owned farms will be devastating. The idea – the American dream – of having a business or farm to leave to our children is now a thing of the past. They will have to be sold to pay the taxes! How un-American and patently absurd is this? And how many times does our money have to be taxed? By the time of death, that money has already been taxed a multitude of times.

All of this was hidden in the ObamaCare bill.

Before December 31st, there will be a huge stock sell-off. And after January 1st, unemployment will rise. You don’t have to be an economist to figure this out. Call me cynical but I’d also be interested in knowing if there’s an increase deaths before December 31.

These people have to be voted out in November and then we have to pray that from November until the new Congress come in, that the democrats don’t push through all kinds of crap during the lame-duck session.

We can pray about it but I know they will do it.
