Doops Are Like Dope Fiends - They're Only Concerned With The Hit

Oh, no...what's he talking about now?!?

Well, on the page of fools, CounterKnowledge, there exists a four-star moron bt the name of Ronald Wieck, who stated:

Ronald Wieck said
on 17 December 2008

It’s amazing that conspiracy liars are still trying to pretend that demolition professionals acknowledge “pull it” as industry slang for “bring down the building with explosives.” They don’t. I have contacted over two dozen demolition companies (the liars have never bothered to contact any) and not one of them recognizes the phrase, except when referring to the specific technique of attaching cables to a relatively small structure to literally pull it off its center of gravity.
Firefighters, by contrast, do talk about “pulling” a contingent of rescue workers out of a dangerous environemnt. Larry Silverstein was talking to a firefighter. His use of firefighter jargon was natural. Had he asked the FDNY to blow up his building, he would have sounded insane, almost as insane as the loons who continually distort his meaning.
This ain’t rocket science: the fire chief stated that operations at WTC 7 were being suspended and Silverstein agreed that, in view of the great loss of life that day, pulling the men out of harm’s way was probably the best idea.

Okay...that having been said...I am friends with a REAL FIREFIGHTER...and I asked him, simply, if the term "pull it" was ever used as firefighter jargon, as this moron insists.

It is NOT.

This puts the absolute lie to the idea that Larry "Two Sheds" Silverstein was engaged in normal conversation with some unnamed firefighter, and was just using "firefighter jargon" in said conversation. It was intimated that this personage was Fire Chief Daniel Nigro, but Nigro emphatically denied being this personage.

My friend also confirmed that this term is relegated to being a demolition term...that being said, I will no longer waste time posting at this page, as I have now been termed a Holocau$t Denier.

Oh, horrors!

I simply stated that I was in agreement with Bishop Richard Williamson, in that the gas chambers were constructed after World War 2; that Zyklon B was used as a delousing agent and nothing more; that the so-called gas chambers show no evidence of cyanide residue, as do the delousing chambers; and that THERE ARE NO MASS GRAVES!


But let's not have facts get in the way of name-calling, now...

Let's talk about the address to Congress last night - fantastic, was it not?

No more tax credits to corporations who offshore jobs away from Americans!

No more no-bid contracts! Halliburton...are you listening?

No more Guantanamo!

No more torture!

No more unaccountability of taxpayer funds!

And that little girl...does it get any better than that?

So...let's see if President Obama keeps his word to WE THE PEOPLE...if so, we will have entered into a new era - an era where WE THE PEOPLE can be PROUD TO BE AMERICANS once again!'s a last bit of mirth:

I Recovered My Orwellized Posting From CounterKnowledge - Now To Be Forever Known As Doop City!

I found it, scumbags!

Printed below is the text that some nitwit on CounterKnowledge wished to make "not exist"...of course, I can always tell when some idiot is attempting some scumbaggery, and so I left my browser window open for the weekend. So...without further ado, my posted text:

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

“Your evil movement is dead. The good guys won.”

Yeah…I see:
Nearly 5 million getting unemployment benefits,%5Egspc,jwn,tif,zlc
Get Ready for Mass Retail Closings
SEC Uncovers Ponzi Scheme Targeting Deaf Investors
Ohio Man Claiming Financial Trouble Killed Family, Then Himself

Oh, yeah…I can plainly see that the good guys have won, asshat.

Here’s a clear example of my so-called “Jew Hatred” - Eliot Spitzer was safeguarding New York City from the predations of the “financial wizards” at Wall Street - when the Emporer’s Club scandal hit, the brokers had a circle jerk, because they were then able to process the $230 million dollar boondoggle, which was the beginning of the malfeasance committed by Morgan Stanley, Bear Stearns, and the other three firms.

Tell, me…do you agree with the ways taxpayer funds have been squandered and wasted, so far?

Yes…I AM a patriot. Lay off the pharmaceuticals.

Oh, you stupid pieces of garbage - you stand exposed for your complete scumbaggery and for being morally bankrupt.

I'd like to find out who was the piece of sub-human garbage who tried to run a 1984 on my comment.

Was it you, Joseph Welch? This is your posting, after all. I don't wish to accuse you, but I'd truly be interested to hear who was the moral coward who decided to remove this comment as if it didn't exist. Oh...and as to FangBeer, Ronald Wieck, TCS, Justa Joe and any of you other mental defectives...let me see if I can nail down your stupid supposition:

On September 11th, 2001, two commercial airliners impacted with World Trade Center Towers 1 & 2.

Let's post from 9-11 Review - Jets Impact The Twin Towers:

Jets Impact the Twin Towers

The opening salvo in the escalating series of horrors on 9/11/01 was a jet smashing into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 AM. The takeover of Flight 11 had occurred almost 30 minutes earlier, but it was the shocking impact with one of the famous Twin Towers that awakened the world to the unfolding attack. By 9:00 AM, television stations across the globe had gone live with the story of the disaster in Lower Manhattan. Thus many cameras were rolling when the South Tower was impacted by a second jet at 9:03 AM, producing brilliant fireballs.
Impacts and Fireballs

The jet that hit the North Tower flew in perpendicular to the tower's northeast face, and impacted around the center of the 95th floor, producing an impact gash that extended from the 92nd to the 98th floor. Most of the plane apparently lodged in the tower's core structure, the only piece of aircraft to emerge from the opposite side being a dense piece of landing gear. The burning jet fuel, atomized on impact, spilled out of the impact gash and through broken windows on the southeast side.

In contrast, the jet that hit the South Tower, 18 minutes later, veered to the right just before impact and hit the rightmost third of the tower's southwest wall, producing an impact gash that extended from the 78th to the 94th floor. The diagonal trajectory through the building allowed most of the plane to miss the tower's core structure, and much of its fuselage appeared to emerge from the east corner, while a great deal of the fuel escaped from the northeast and southwest walls. This produced huge fireballs that developed outside the building, in contrast with the greater containment of the fireballs in the North Tower impact.
Impact Damage

The jet impacts destroyed sections of perimeter wall columns on the faces of the towers they hit. Although the collisions left imprints that extended out to the wingtips of the jets, the ends of the wings destroyed only the aluminum cladding covering the perimeter columns, not the steel columns themselves. The South Tower's wall was damaged less than the North Tower's, since the columns at its impact zone were made of thicker steel.

North Tower's northeast perimeter wall from floors 93 through 98

South Tower's southwest perimeter wall from floors 78 through 82

According to FEMA's damage estimates, The North Tower impact destroyed from 31 to 36 of its perimeter columns, and the South Tower impact destroyed about 23 of its perimeter columns. Since each tower had 240 perimeter columns, the impacts destroyed only about 13 and 10 percent of the towers' perimeter columns, and only on a few floors.

The Jet Fuel

In the popular imagination, the jet fuel was the biggest factor in bringing down the towers. News reports emphasized that the transcontinental flights were fully loaded with fuel, while later government reports stated that the 767s were carrying about 10,000 of their 24,000-gallon capacity, and that most of the jet fuel likely burned off within five minutes. Thus, the jet fuel primarily served to ignite the post-crash fires rather than sustain them.

Okay...we've got that out of the way, yes? So...and I hope that this is clear...are you stating that the jet fuel that you purport was the weakening factor in regards to the steel not only ran down the remaining floors, but was also able to affect the floors ABOVE THE IMPACT?

How the hell did firefighters reach the floors they were able to before the collapses?

Understand this - you people are complete and utter morons, and I will now take every opportunity to point that out. I will spare no insult, and as I have proven your craven methods, now know that you idiots are deserving of no less.

This is going to be a great week.

Imagine If THIS GUY Were Our Commander-In-Chief!

This is the kind of leadership WE THE PEOPLE need!

What...we should accept reductions in our wages like we're a bunch of goddamn coolies? Screw that Mayor Bernero's time to share the love, Wall Street.

So...I have been posting the link of a certain 9/11 "debunker" site...but NO MORE.

Why is this?


Some tool wrote as his signoff statement, "The good guys won".

So...he's written this line of horse nuggets a number of times, but it really got my balls up in a I responded with (this is an approximation, as the actual post was deleted by these ball-less wonders):

Oh, yeah, I see the good guys really won:

I then posted four links displaying how Americans have NOT won; indeed, the hard times are coming hot and heavy...and then, in answer to a completely baseless accusation of harboring anti-Semitic prejudices, I explained how former New Yorker Governor Eliot Spitzer was safeguarding New York City from the predations of the scumbags on Wall Street, and how they had a circle-jerk when the Emporer's Club scandal emerged...something that a hard-core Jew Hater would be loathe to admit, yes?

I'll bet you're all thinking twice about how great a job current Governor David Paterson's doing now, huh? If Howard Stern's Channel 9 TV show were still running, we'd have a great skit to watch, much like his Clarence Thomas, do I miss those...but I digress.

So...I checked the page roughly twenty hours later, only to see this text adorning my posting:

Your comment is awaiting moderation.


I should have seen this coming...those asshats REMOVED my posting...and then on to high-five themselves after their mutual self-hummer sessions, followed by a messy snowballing from each other's anal cavities. Hmm...maybe we should refer to that as a Dirty Snowballing. Who knows...I just hope that I can do a Web Archive search and find an instance of that page so I can show these "doops", as they're called, for the moral cowards that they are. I will post this in the morning, if so.

Here's some linkage to some guys who are NOT moral cowards - kudos to these guys!

Corporate Executives Overpaid, Undertaxed - by Holly Sklar [February 14th, 2009]

Corporate Executives Overpaid, Undertaxed

by Holly Sklar / February 14th, 2009

In today’s mad world, underpaid workers are bailing out banks and corporations run by overpaid, undertaxed bosses who milked their companies and our country like cash cows.

While workers across America were losing jobs, homes and health insurance, Merrill Lynch paid nearly 700 employees more than $1 million each in bonuses last year, amounting to a $3.6 billion bonus bonanza while Merrill lost $27 billion.

Workers have been sacrificing for years. Average worker paychecks are worth less now than in 1973, but CEOs and other rich Americans not only make much more, they pay less in taxes.

Average full-time workers made $41,198 in 1973 and $37,606 in 2008, adjusted for inflation.

CEOs made 45 times as much as workers in 1973 and more than 300 times as much as workers now. The top tax rate was 70% in 1973 and just 35% now; taxpayers pay the top rate on the portion of taxable income that falls within the highest bracket and pay lower rate s on income below that. The top rate for capital gains on the sale of stock and other assets was 36.5% in 1973 and 15% now.

Irrational pay and tax cuts have generated a massive redistribution of income and wealth from workers to CEOs, hedge fund managers and others in the richest 1%.

By 2006, the richest 1% had increased their share of the nation’s income to the second-highest level on record. The only year higher was 1928 — on the eve of the Great Depression.

According to the latest IRS data, excluding tax-exempt interest income from state and local government bonds, the richest 400 taxpayers had an average adjusted gross income of $263 million each on their federal income tax returns in 2006 — up from $221 million in 2005 and $67 million in 1992, adjusted for inflation.

Remember, that’s annual income, not accumulated wealth. $263 million comes to more than $5 million a week.

In 2006, the 400 ultrarich were taxed at an average rate of 17% — down from 26% in 1992. The ultrarich get most of their income from capital gains. The capital gains tax was cut from 28% in 1992 to 20% in 1997 and cut again to 15% in 2003.

To make matters worse, the rich cheat more on their taxes. Forbes recently reported on a study using IRS data showing that taxpayers with income between $500,000 and $1 million a year understated their adjusted gross incomes by 21% in 2001, compared to 8% for those earning $50,000 to $100,000, and lower rates for those earning less.

We should raise taxes at the top so the nation’s richest bosses no longer pay lower effective rates than workers and we can start reversing the obscene rise in inequality rather than reinforcing it. President Obama’s plan to cap CEO cash pay at $500,000 for senior executives at companies on the government dole sounds better than it is, affecting few firms and full of loopholes.

At the very least, President Obama should not delay restoring the top tax rate to the 39.6% rate that prevailed in 2000. The Bush tax cuts saved the top 1% nearly half a trillion dollars between 2001 and 2008, reports Citizens for Tax Justice.

The $79.5 billion in tax cuts for the top 1% in 2008 was more than the budgets of the Department of Education and Environmental Protection Agency combined. In 2008, it took an annual income greater than $462,000 just to get into the top 1 percent.

Even better, we should add a top rate of 50% on income above $1 million, as advocated by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings among others.

People for whom $1 million and above is an annual paycheck should pay more so people for whom $1 million is an unattainable lifetime fortune don’t have to.

If we don’t start taxing the wealthy more now, then you can be sure that the mountain of debt created by tax cuts and the bailout will be used to drive “entitlement reform.” Workers’ last forms of security — Social Security and Medicare — will be on the chopping block to pay for the wrec k the truly entitled made of our economy.

"We found the cockpit, tail section, both wings and the
engine. And they're where they should be if an airplane was laying flat,"
National Transportation Safety Board Member Steven Chealander told reporters at
a news conference late this afternoon in Amherst.

The plane also was pointed away from the airport runway where it was
supposed to land, Chealander said.

The aircraft's stall-protection mechanisms had been activated … devices that
warn the pilot of possible in-flight stalls.

There are no indications that the crew gave passengers any warning.
Chealander said investigators believe the crash was a "sudden catastrophic

Chealander said the tail on the plane had been deiced and
had numerous deicing mechanisms, including electrically heated propellers. He
described them as "sophisticated" systems.

"This airplane right here had very sophisticated
deicing systems on it. They had very sophisticated procedures and processes in
place to use to mitigate ice. We're not saying that ice caused this

Goelz, who served as managing director of the National
Transportation Safety Board from 1995 until 2000, stressed Friday that while it
is too soon to pinpoint the cause.

“Certainly this plane was
certified to fly in this kind of weather. If the deicing system was working, it
should have been able to handle the weather,” Goelz said. “That’s why there is
an air of mystery to this tragedy.”

“It could be that something went wrong with the de-icing
equipment, or there was pilot error, or both,” Cambria said. “Either way, it’s
a horrible tragedy. Either way, the passengers had a right to assume that the
plane was in good working order, and that the weather conditions were
thoroughly checked before the plane took off.”


Retired airline captain Jim Tilmon , CNN 2-13-09

(Video not available)

According to flight data recovered from the scene, the crew
discussed what they called a significant ice buildup on the plane, and they
tried to pull out of their landing approach. What does that tell you? Does that
tell you that -- that ice is -- is most likely the cause of this crash?

JIM TILMON, FORMER AMERICAN AIRLINES PILOT: Yes, I would say that that's where the investigation is going to be pointed initially.

I want to caution that this is so early in the investigation. One should not speculate too soon. It could be so many things. And maybe the ice exacerbated the situation, but we have got a lot yet to learn.

I still feel, however, that this crew was capable of dealing with this.
It was just that they got overwhelmed by something that -- an event that took place very suddenly.....

This airplane, remember, was built in Canada. That's where they
understand very clearly what it's like to fly in winter conditions. So, the airplane is configured so that it should be able to be handled very nicely under most circumstances.....

State Sovereignty Resolutions Introduced

Legislators in at least nine States have had it with Federal meddling! They have therefore introduced resolutions asserting the sovereignty of their States in the current session, which began last month. Those States are Washington, New Hampshire, Arizona, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, California, and Georgia. Twelve additional States reportedly are considering the introduction of such resolutions: Colorado, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Alaska, Kansas, Alabama, Nevada, Maine, and Illinois (!).

These States are claiming their rights under the Tenth Amendment, which reserves all powers to the States or to the people, that are not specifically delegated to the Federal Government under Article I, Sections 8-10 of the Constitution.
Mississippi Passes Legislation Protecting Gun Owners During Martial Law
February 11, 2009

Mississippi lawmakers have passed a bill to protect the state’s residents during martial law. On the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi website, Phil Bryant announces the passage of SB 2036. The legislation “restricts the power of a peace officer to confiscate firearms and ammunitions in an emergency or during a time of martial law,” according to the website...

Mississippi passes the law reaffirming the Second Amendment at approximately the same time a number of states are introducing and passing resolutions and bills declaring sovereignty from the federal government and buttressing the Tenth Amendment...
States Push to Take Back National Guard
Wednesday 11 February 2009

The president can call up the states's Guard units in a time of war. But when the mandate for war becomes obsolete, say members of the Bring the Guard Home: It's the Law (BTGH) campaign, sending those troops overseas is illegal. BTGH members and their allies are now sponsoring a chain of bills and resolutions in states across the country, demanding an investigation into the legality of deploying the Guard to Iraq, and a refusal to comply with any illegal federal orders...

"We believe that it would be a good thing for a court to be asked the question of whether a state Guard can be brought into federal service to fight in an overseas war - other than in an emergency - that does not have a proper Congressional authorization," Fisher said...

Beijing Skyscraper Fire: The Silence Is Deafening

Debunkers' only response is to claim that no comparison to WTC 7 can be made, yet they feverishly compared completely dissimilar bridge collapses to twin towers in 2007

Three days after a towering inferno engulfed a 500 foot skyscraper in Beijing, debunkers have failed to come up with any answers as to why the building remained standing in comparison with WTC 7, which suffered a uniform 7 second implosion as a result of limited fires spread across just 8 floors on 9/11...

Poll: Most want inquiry into anti-terror tactics

WASHINGTON — Even as Americans struggle with two wars and an economy in tatters, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds majorities in favor of investigating some of the thorniest unfinished business from the Bush administration: Whether its tactics in the "war on terror" broke the law.

Close to two-thirds of those surveyed said there should be investigations into allegations that the Bush team used torture to interrogate terrorism suspects and its program of wiretapping U.S. citizens without getting warrants. Almost four in 10 favor criminal investigations and about a quarter want investigations without criminal charges. One-third said they want nothing to be done....

The Republican viewpoint was summed up recently by Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa. "If every administration started to re-examine what every prior administration did, there would be no end to it," he said. "This is not Latin America."

It's a matter of LAW, you doofus! And Latin America is a model we should emulate — they've been prosecuting their patriot criminals from the Dirty Wars 30 years ago.

AP Impact: Pentagon ups public relations spending

An Associated Press investigation found that over the past five years, the money the military spends on winning hearts and minds at home and abroad has grown by 63 percent, to at least $4.7 billion this year, according to Department of Defense budgets and other documents. That's almost as much as it spent on body armor for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan between 2004 and 2006.

This year, the Pentagon will employ 27,000 people just for recruitment, advertising and public relations — almost as many as the total 30,000-person work force in the State Department.

Not to mention: the Pentagon maintains about 275 golf courses on bases around the world, and there are more personnel in military bands than in the State Dept.

Military Aid to Israel violates Symington Amendment

The 1976 Symington Amendment prohibits most U.S. foreign aid to any country found trafficking in nuclear enrichment equipment or technology outside international safeguards. Israel has never signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). If U.S. presidents complied with the Symington Amendment, they would not deliver yearly aid packages to Israel totaling billions of dollars. Presidents make-believe that Israeli nuclear weapons don't exist so Congress can legally continue shoveling the lion's share of the U.S. foreign aid budget to Israel. But this thin pretense is now over. Since Carter's revelation, press outlets such as Reuters chat openly about how Israel's nukes mean that it does not qualify for U.S. aid.

Markopolos: I gift wrapped and delivered the largest Ponzi scheme in history to the SEC (And My Appeal Fell Upon Deaf Ears)

This morning, the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government Sponsored Enterprises is holding a hearing to assess the alleged $50 billion investment fraud engineered by Mr. Bernard L. Madoff. This is the second in a series of hearings that will help to guide the work of the Financial Services Committee and the Capital Markets Subcommittee in the 111th Congress in undertaking the most substantial rewrite of the laws governing the U.S. financial markets since the Great Depression.

Harry Markopolos, an independent financial fraud investigator for institutional investors and others seeking forensic accounting expertise, as well as a Chartered Financial Analyst and Certified Fraud Examiner, testifies.

Mossad Truck Bombs on Sept 11 - Nephilim70

Rare recording of Police radio from September 11th 2001. Police capture 2 Mossad agents caught delivering a Truck Bomb next to the WTC building in New York City. Even though they were caught by Police and arrested, they were then let go back to Israel by the BUSH administration.

Go figure who is "supporting the terrorist network".

This video IS NOT Anti-Semitic, It is ANTI-TERRORIST. If Israelis turn out to be the terrorists then so be it.

We need to expose THE TRUE TERRORISTS and wake people up to who really did 9-11.

Obama: Enough Of This Crap - The Market Ticker

The site doesn't require comments without registration, and I've enough account passwords to keep track of, thank you - I certainly hope the poster doesn't mind [I have clearly delineated this text as not being my own].

This is FOUR people who you've appointed that can't pay their damn taxes, including your Treasury Secretary?

The latest is that Daschle has withdrawn, of course


I'll tell you what would be change. Since it appears that a huge percentage of the current and former Congressional delegation has cheated on its taxes - after all, what are the odds you only picked the tax cheats, if you want me to believe in your idea of CHANGE you will immediately order all member of Congress in both Houses to undergo full IRS audits all the way back to the Statute of Limitations (three years), along with all of their staff.

You and I know know it won't happen, but I'll tell you what - I keep hearing people say they're going to file absolute crap this year. Utter garbage. "The Dog ate my Schedule C."

If The American People do this, Mr. President, government funding will collapse. The IRS can't possibly audit everyone and we all know it.

Your administration is dangerously close to creating a full-on tax revolt among Americans. You would not believe how often I have heard this among people both online and off in the last couple of weeks. The anger, especially when the people who are cheating are folks like Daschle and Geithner, is VISCERAL - these are the people who both wrote the tax code and were involved in the bailouts and handouts which you expect we the people - ordinary Americans - to pay for.

Here is what Daschle said previously:

"Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter. " Sen. Tom Daschle, Congressional Record, May 7, 1998, p. S4507.

But you, Mr. President, expect Americans to file truthful tax returns and pay their taxes as due?

I file and pay every year exactly what I owe. No cheating, no games, no BS. I spend upwards of a full week preparing and checking my tax return to make sure that I pay every dollar that is due (but not one more!) But now we discover that every day another one of your appointees in your "new day" for Washington DC has cheated on their taxes and in the case of Daschle and Geithner they knew they owed the money and didn't pay until you tapped them?

Against this backdrop you expect ordinary Americans to file and pay for bankster bailouts to cover the fraudulent actions of the banking and securitization industry?

You might want to rethink this one, and I can come up with only two ways to do it:

* Audit EVERY Congressperson and EVERY staffer in your administration, including yourself. Everyone, all the way back to the statute of limitations, with the results of those audits made public.
* Ditch the IRS and the current tax system entirely (mooting the question) and move the nation to The Fair Tax, thereby firing all the tax lobbyists and game-players in DC and elsewhere.

Frankly I prefer #2 but #1 is acceptable.

"Do nothing", on the other hand, may well NOT be accepted by The American people.

If what I hear in my day-to-day the patience of "The People" is about done.

Alright! Time for your good buddy to get into a tax rant:

Before 1913, Americans were NOT taxed. America was a nation where one could come from nothing, yet gain a chance to gain anything one desired.

Ever since 1913, that America has been buried under a number of occurrences...those being:

The Federal Reserve Act;
The original Thirteenth Amendment (known also as the "Titles of Nobility" Amendment;
The anti-American Fourteenth Amendment (it actually relegates U.S. citizens (read: Citizens) to subordinate status under our elected officials);
Corporations being given the "rights" of a "person"

Let's get into a tad more detail:

The Federal Reserve Act was enacted under a recess Congress, and against the will of WE THE PEOPLE. There were two instances of central banks earlier in America's history, and they were both refused by the American people...because of USURY. Amazingly, this iteration of the same crime against WE THE PEOPLE has been allowed to stand for nearly one hundred years.

Take a look at my blogroll - there are a couple of sites which discuss the Thirteenth Amendment - just in case you've no experience at all with this concept, here's the cogent part of the amendment:

"If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them." [Journal of the Senate]

In other words, anyone who acts as an agent of a foreign nation, or against the United States of America, CANNOT HOLD A POSITION IN GOVERNMENT.

During the war of 1812, this amendment was passed, but traitors against WE THE PEOPLE understood its true meaning, and went about to subvert our lawful protections against said traitors.

In 1865, the true, original 13th Amendment was "disappeared" and replaced with the sham that exists to this day, an amendment composed of naught but damning to this nation. Read it for yourself:

Later in 1861, another proposed amendment, also numbered thirteen, was signed by President Lincoln. This was the only proposed amendment that was ever signed by a president. That resolve to amend read: "ARTICLE THIRTEEN, No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any State, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State." (In other words, President Lincoln had signed a resolve that would have permitted slavery, and upheld states' rights.) Only one State, Illinois, ratified this proposed amendment before the Civil War broke out in 1861.

Michael Badnarik made a set of videos regarding the mis-reading of our Constitution called Constitution Class 101 - I highly recommend it to you. He discusses the difference between being a citizen of a state, and being a "Citizen of the United States". Watch the'll learn a huge amount for something you probably take for granted.'s the biggest part of the scumbaggery - the tax burden originally belonged to CORPORATIONS. After all, a corporation uses more resources than a "person" could possibly use. Yet, a corporation has at its disposal many more options available.

Ever try to stage a work stoppage with couple of co-workers? The corporation will have scabs at your desk faster than you can say, "My chair cushion!"

I believe that the corporations, the quislings in our government and the bankers colluded to transfer the tax burden from the corporations to WE THE PEOPLE. Just think...Halliburton had a FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR TAX DEBT FORGIVEN? Meanwhile, Bob Lewis gets a garnishment on his salary, because of a lousy thousand bucks?

Where has America's soul gone?

If that isn't enough, remember this: Congress had no power of taxation before 1913...and no amendments granted this, how is it that WE THE PEOPLE are the recipients of an unlawful tax burden?

Wages are what we earn in exchange for labor.

Income is wealth not derived from labor (prizes, lotteries, etc.) - so think about that a little bit, dear readers.

Now...go back and read the preceding article, and ask yourself - how many more of our privileged class (i.e. our elected officials) DON'T PAY TAXES?!?

I anxiously await your responses.

Oh, yes...this has nothing directly to do with the taxation issue at hand...but do these activities bear the mark of a friendly nation?
