Big Brotherly Love

Read the latest from Philly, via Drudge. David provides additional commentary.

Anyone out there naive enough to think this is merely an "emergency revenue measure"?

Wow. People are so used to knee-jerk Obama sycophants that a poor commenter who made EXTREMELY sarcastic (and true) comments criticizing Big O's priorities is being blasted as an Obamabot.
Emotions are running high, for sure.
Philadelphia officials say the blogger spoken of should hire an accountant, which will cost MORE than the $300 license fee. A lawyer would cost even more.
Hey, Philadelphia, how about we just ignore the stupid regulation, and when you come for one of us, we ALL meet you at the door? We'll have a party.
It's obvious that they're trying to spark SOMETHING.
Drug gangs don't pay a fee. Prostitutes don't pay a fee. Vandals don't, or panhandlers -- although some cities require some kind of permit for that, I read.
But speech, especially POLITICAL speech? Hands off.
The power to tax is the power to destroy -- and also to p--- off the patriots, maybe enough to put them on the streets.
Speaking of ... AP reports anti-NYC mosque protests are "heating up."
I guess they want them to have a license too. Nancy Pelosi thinks there some big plot and plan. That's good. When the wave of public opinion breaks over DC, they won't see it coming.

Most newspapers have their writers be bloggers as well, another way of wringing out more sweat from the ink-stained wretches. And because few buy the printed copy anymore, but that's another discussion.
OF COURSE people who buy ink by the barrel can afford to pay the free speech tax. I wonder how they'll report this story, considering that bloggers are the alternative media competition. Will it be First Amendment all the way like always?
The NRA liked the DISCLOSE Act because it'll be exempt.
About a year ago, I, as many others have, remarked that if every amendment in the Bill of Rights were treated like the Second, free speech would only apply to the Government Printing Office.
It seems that that is the destination.

Registered bloggers, registered long-gun owners. California.


Of course, as we Virginians know, the instant check system is already the gun owner registration arm of the state police, who have and will illegally share data with the feds and local cops.
With no consequences.
Another Hegelian choice brought to you by the NRA. Waiting periods would have been worse, they said.
"Shall not be infringed" would be better, we said.

Hell the Disclose Act did´t pass the Senate(I think)at least not yet. So now someone in Government is maybe looking to Tax Free Speech. If they shut us up one way they have to try another.

And yea, I saw the comments some people don´t read so well Made me feel Smart. LOL

What Philly and the rest of the country need is massive civil disobedience....refuse to pay all these higher taxes, fees, and regulatory increases.

People are so afraid of the tax man, they will do anything to keep him off their doorstep. Jump through every hoop they are told is mandatory, rat off their friends and neighbors for a tax reward, and god forbid there might be an audit. To Americans, the IRS is the most frightening creature they will ever encounter in their life, so total compliance is a given.
Don't expect anyone to stand up against their state or local tax board. They are too scared and brainwashed to even consider it. A giant tax protest or refusal won't happen, they are too afraid of reprisal when they file taxes.
95% of the people will knuckle under and pay the tax, just because they were told it's the law. As with everything else in the country, it's your patriotic duty to pay taxes. Makes you a better citizen. Or so I've been told.

In case this hasn't been noticed yet, NYC is reportedly (Drudge) going to begin enforcing an old tax on, gasp, SLICED bagels! What more proof does one need to see the depths that the Imperium will plumb in its quest for the ruination of the Amurracun way o' life?! It's time to show the NYC branch of the Imperium that such an OUTRAGE will NOT be tolerated by the 'liberation' of a truckload of garlic bagels (w/ poppy seeds, of course!) involving a group of Sons of David dressed as Sikhs who afterward dump said foodstuffs into the East river. And the note left behind should say: "Dont mek us do dis again, you mamzer schmucks!" Oy!

Overheard: "My friend's aunt works for the IRS, and she's SO happy she can carry a badge and a gun."
Ledger books CAN have sharp pointy corners...

It's going to be easy to pay much less in taxes this year, since I haven't had a job for 15 months, in spite of applying to 130.
The wife insists on payroll deduction, so we get that nice refund. It's an interest-free loan to Uncle Slam, but pay-as-you-go, seeing the numbers on that check, might make the heathen rage.
Anyway, she's self-employed, so it's really not an issue this go-round.
Let the monkey-wrenching begin!
