Due process is overdue, the power to tax is the power to destroy.

Congress Is About To Pass A Bill That Restricts Traveling

Also, Driving And International Banking

As part of Senate Bill 1813 (known as MAP-21), Congress has inserted language that would oblige the Secretary of State to revoke or deny a passport to any U.S. citizen who the IRS Commissioner deems as having “seriously delinquent tax debt.”

Sound OK to you?

I have one question, where is due process in this?

In this, increasingly international business world, foreign travel is becoming a per-requisite for doing business and even finding employment.  I myself, if I could get released from my family obligations  could be heading over-seas to a very lucrative career running large telephone systems for the government or military.

But with no passport, no travel. No travel, no job, or for some businessmen no business.

Many people have tax issues with our government, since even the IRS has admitted that it sometimes can’t understand the tax laws and regulations, this is not surprising.

A businessman can easily be looking at a 50K tax disagreement with the IRS. If this law passes (as it is very likely about to) then without the need to prove their case in court, the IRS can squeeze that businessman into a default judgement  without the need to await the due process of law.

As my friend Jim asked recently, how close are we to the trigger point that the revolutionaries of 1776 were to the point when we have nothing left to lose and must stand and fight?

Palin is just what Romney needs – and the very last person he wants

The ebullient Alaskan Sarah Palin has something the Republican campaign clearly lacks.

…Nor does Romney need executive experience. As an ex-governor and multi-millionaire ex-CEO of Bain and Co, he’s got it, at least on paper. For that matter, the Republican ticket doesn’t even need ideological balance, because Romney has taken every conceivable position on every issue – for and against abortion, for and against universal health care – so much so that it’s impossible to know whether to characterise him as a conservative or a liberal.

What Romney really lacks is charisma, and what he really needs is someone to help him win back the votes of women who were scared away by a Republican primary campaign that debated, among other things, the merits of contraception. What Romney really needs, in other words, is a talented, unknown female running mate who will bring a touch of youth and charisma to his stodgy campaign. Thanks to Sarah Palin, that is exactly the kind of politician he will go out of his way to avoid.

SARAH… SARAH…SARAH!!!   Fuck Romney, if he’s the name on the ballot running against Barry, I’ll vote for him. But Fuck Him anyway. I’m tried of Barry-Lites.

Jesus, I hate Obama.
