Common Sense

In honor of Thomas Paine, “these are the times that try men’s souls”, I can honestly say that my soul has been tried. The political climate we find ourselves in is surreal, and born of partisan hackery and ignorance. Last week, Harry Reid stated probably the most despicable  statement ever uttered on the Senate Floor, yet the media and ignorant liberals let it go by without question due to their hyper partisanship and ignorance. I say ignorance because of the fact that we do have an IRS and Justice Department charged with vetting and validating tax returns, and if you think someone of Romney’s prominence escaped the eye of those two government watchdogs, you’re sorely lacking in common sense. Combine that with the fact that Romney does not prepare his own taxes, he has highly paid and highly qualified CPA firms compile his returns. CPA firms who are also audited frequently, so to suggest that this highly moral man not only evaded taxes for a number of years but also avoided the scrutiny of the IRS, is just insane. Yet, it goes largely unquestioned, and the burden of proof becomes Romney’s . Let’s also throw in our dear President, who has lectured all of us on several occasions on the importance of civility, and you can imagine why many of our souls have been tried over the last three years. The disingenuous and arrogance emanating from our current crop of liberals is distasteful to say the least.

I am reminded of another one of Paine’s great quotes – “Time makes more converts than reason”, and that is a fact that Democrats bank on. Liberals know that a lie repeated often enough will resonate with the ignorant, and the liberal base is ignorant, make no mistake about that. But the quote from Paine that struck me the most was this:

SOME writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher.

This is an incredibly profound statement. Paine is speaking to the sense of community driven not by government, but by the individual, both in charity and accomplishment. We desperately need to get back to that place where government is administered at the most local level possible, as defined by our Constitution, where individual charity nurtures those in need, and where individual accomplishment is applauded, not scolded. The ever growing bureaucracy in Washington DC is not the solution to the problem, it is the problem. Can you guess which President stated that?

    “the media and ignorant liberals let it go by without question due to their hyper partisanship and ignorance.”

    Not true. Reid has been blasted by a number of MSM sources including Jon Stewart.

    “Combine that with the fact that Romney does not prepare his own taxes, he has highly paid and highly qualified CPA firms compile his returns. CPA firms who are also audited frequently, so to suggest that this highly moral man not only evaded taxes for a number of years but also avoided the scrutiny of the IRS, is just insane.”

    Reid hasn’t accused Romney of breaking the law. There are lots of people who don’t pay income tax legally (about 47%, I believe).

    Of course, Romney could end this whole thing any time he wants by releasing his tax returns (although there isn’t any legal reason for him to do so).

    • Cluster August 6, 2012 / 6:49 pm

      Romney has released the required documents, and again, what does that prove? He is within the law as far as we know and that should be sufficient.

      However, this is just a distraction, and that goes back to my point on ignorance. Only fools get distracted and politicians like Harry Reid and Obama depend on fools to be reelected. Anyone that applies common sense can see that those who call for Romney’s transparency ignore the lack of transparency on issues that really matter – why haven’t there been any indictments in the financial services industry including Fannie and Freddie? What did Eric Holder know and when did he know it? How has Harry Reid become a multi millionaire while “serving” the country?

        Obama and his infamous strategist David Axelrod understand how to play political hardball, the best its ever been played. Team Obama has decided to distract America’s voters by condemning Mitt Romney for not releasing enough years of his tax returns. It’s the perfect cover. Obama knows the best defense is a bold offense. Just keep attacking Mitt and blaming him for secrecy and evasion, while accusing him of having a scandal that doesn’t exist. Then ask followers like Senator Harry Reid to chase the lead. The U.S. Senate Majority Leader appears to now be making up stories out of thin air, about tax returns he knows nothing about. It’s a cynical, brilliant and vicious strategy. Make Romney defend, so he can’t attack the real Obama scandal.

        This is classic Axelrod. Obama has won several elections in his career by slandering his opponents and leaking sealed documents. Not only do these insinuations and leaks ruin the credibility and reputation of Obama’s opponents, they keep them on the defensive and off Obama’s trail of sealed documents.

        geeeee catspuke; aren’t charitable donations tax DEDUCTIBLE?

        Mitt Romney Has Given Away

        Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney amassed a fortune now worth an estimated $230 million during his career with Bain Capital. He would be wealthier still had he not set aside a trust for his five children in 1995, worth $100 million today. Also making a considerable dent in the former governor’s fortune has been his consistent charitable giving.

        As a Mormon, Romney is expected pay a tithe, or 10% of his annual income, to the Church of the Latter Day Saints. In just the past two years, Romney has given the church $1.525 million and $2.6 million, respectively, according to his tax returns. Romney has also publicly stated on multiple occasions that the entirety of his inheritance from his father, who died in 1995, was donated to the BYU Marriott School of Management’s Institute of Public Management, which now bears his father George W. Romney’s name.

        Romney and his wife Ann also maintain a separate foundation, established in 1999, the same year that Romney left Bain Capital to serve as CEO of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics Organizing Committee. The couple have contributed approximately$13.6 million, including an initial gift of more than $3.6 million, to their

        Noun 1. domestic terrorism – terrorism practiced in your own country against your own people; “the 1995 bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City was an instance of domestic terrorism”
        act of terrorism, terrorism, terrorist act – the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear”

        i answered it on the other thread, but I will expand on it here. I think all elected officials (and judges) on a federal level should release their tax returns. At least then we know who they are beholden too. Of course, at this point no one is required to do so by law.

        Just as an aside; the designation of “domestic terrorism” only puts the investigation in the purview of the FBI which can run the investigation across state lines as the suspect is from another state. Terrorism also puts the investigation in the department within the FBI that handles violent crimes rather than the white collar crime divisions.

        The Fort Hood massacre was on Federal Property so the Feds already had jurisdiction, they could have called it a case of check fraud gone wrong and the investigation would have been run the same way (cover up the muslim connection so as to not embarrass Obama).

      • Amazona August 8, 2012 / 11:49 am

        neo, one quote from your link:

        “What would the Democrats say if the tax returns appeared to be ‘layered’ PDF files and forensics showed some computer antics with the text? Could they ask for more proof?

        Or, would they just have the Treasury Secretary, the man overseeing the IRS, to look into Romney’s past returns. That might be a shade messy for Tim”

        Remember, the “informant” who allegedly called Reid claimed to have information on Romney’s tax filings because he was a Bain investor.

        Gee, who knew that if you put money into a company its founder and CEO will show you his tax returns?

      • Amazona August 8, 2012 / 12:09 pm

        I strongly encourage everyone to go to and read the link provided by casper: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/08/06/1117242/-Remember-the-DHS-Right-Wing-Extremist-Report

        I know, it is distasteful to go to the Kos, and believe me, this little nugget of mental filth that so impressed casper will leave a bad taste in your mouth for a long long time.

        To sum it up, it addresses the outrage at Napolitano’s warning about “right wing domestic terrorists” including references to former military personnel, and Napolitano’s eventual tepid kind-of-apology for suggesting that veterans might constitute a threat to the nation.

        And then it says that in the light of the Sikh temple shootings that outrage/apology might be revisited.

        Yes, folks, cappy put on his Obama necktie, did his ususal consumption of Daily Kos excrement, and was so impressed by the return to Napolitano’s warning about the dangers represented by our military veterans spurred by the fact that former soldier killed some people that he just HAD to share it with us!

        For a long time I thought of casper as just a clueless doofus, but over time he has shown a remarkable affinity for viciousness.

        Anyone who could find one single element of decency in this piece of mental excrement on the Daily Kos is a very malignant person.

        casper not only made a point of reading this, he referred to it as an EXPLANATION for an increase in violence. Yes, casper linked an increase in violent incidents against religious minorities to the warning about the threats posed by our military veterans.

        He wrote:

        “Indian Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna criticized the U.S. for failed policies and a growing trend of violent incidents against religious minorities.”

        Perhaps this would help him understand our problem.

        http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/08/06/1117242/-Remember-the-DHS-Right-Wing-Extremist-Report

        Now, casper, before you start accusing me of misquoting, let me head you off. No, you did not use those words.

        What you DID do was state that reading the filth in the Kos, which went back to Napolitano’s warning that returning veterans can post security problems and be classified as domestic terrorists and then tied that in with the fact that a veteran killed some people, would “help him (the Indian Foreign Minister) understand our problem” of violence toward religious minorities.

        It is a vicious and vile post on the Kos, and quite telling that you were so impressed with it you actually suggested that reading it would help the foreign minister of another country understand a problem here.

        You really are a piece of work aren’t you?

      • Amazona August 8, 2012 / 12:23 pm

        To summarize the Daily Kos piece.

        It referred to Napolitano’s statement that “…the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.”

        After being criticized across the board for her comment on war veterans, and demands for an apology by John Boehner,

        “On April 16, 2009 Fox News reported that Secretary Napolitano issued an apology to veterans in an on air interview saying, “To the extent veterans read it as an accusation … an apology is owed.” ”

        (This is what I meant by a tepid kind-of-apology….not for what she said but for how some people took it, a common Leftist tactic,)

        And then, on the Kos, in boldface type:

        “It has now been confirmed that the Oak Creek, WI Gurudwara (temple) mass murderer Wade Michael Page was indeed a veteran, White Supremacist, Neo-Nazi and leader of a white power music (?) band called End Apathy. I wish the Obama folks would pull out the DHS report and send it to Boehner and the other Repubs and demand an apology but but that would be politicizing a tragedy right?”

        And THIS is what casper thinks we should send to the Foreign Affairs Minister of India, to EXPLAIN the violence toward religious minorities. It’s those damned VETERANS!

        Shame on you, casper, though you seem to be impervious to shame.

    I would guess, giving his speeches on the subject, that the Great One said that line.

    I am not sure he was right though. I suggest we form a committee to study the problem and give them 5 billion dollars to spend studying it. We should give them six months to do so. Then if the committee can find a solution, we should form a super committee for further study.

    Should the super committee not be able to find a solution we should form another committee to study the super committee and find out why they could not find anything.

    We should just keep forming committees until every single American is on at least two committees. Then and only then will we get a solution to this problem.

    The RRL knows its base, and casper is a perfect example of it. The minders know that any time there is a chance that their lemmings might be nudged into an examination of the failures of their system they can very easily be distracted by a version of “Look! Something shiny!” and the lemmings will immediately go baying in the direction of the new distraction.

    The shiny thing of the day is the Romney taxes. Last week it was Bain Capital. The Left can come up with the most superficial, trivial, and fact-free illusions of political significance and the lemmings will never see past the smoke and mirrors and examine what lies beneath the distraction.

    Casper likes to posture that perhaps Romney’s tax returns might, possibly, show income from some suspicious source. Upon what might this concern be based? Well, in this case, upon absolutely nothing. Romney doesn’t have a Rezko in his past, or an Ayers, or unexplained income. But then Casper has always been one of the most easily gulled.

    We might look at a what-if, though.

    For example, what would be of more significance to the nation? Learning that one candidate has a spotless record of absolute adherence to all tax laws and because of the nature of his income and the existing tax laws paid only 15% of that income in taxes, or learning that the other candidate’s entire resume is a sham, based upon fraudulent claims and a lengthy and complex series of elaborate lies spread out over many years?

    What would be of more significance to the nation? Learning that one candidate has a spotless record of absolute adherence to all tax laws and because of the nature of his income and the existing tax laws paid only 15% of that income in taxes, or having a Secretary of the Treasury who cheated on his taxes?

    What would be of more significance to the nation? Learning that one candidate has a spotless record of absolute adherence to all tax laws and because of the nature of his income and the existing tax laws paid only 15% of that income in taxes, or an administration in which dozens of appointees have not paid their taxes and who have not been challenged or disciplined for their illegal tax dodges?

    The RRL has pulled one of its many tricks and set up a no-win situation for Romney—if he knuckles under to the pressure from the Left, they can claim that he tried to hide something suspicious and only presented his tax info under righteous pressure from them, and if he tells them to go take a hike they can claim he has something to hide.

      “Casper likes to posture that perhaps Romney’s tax returns might, possibly, show income from some suspicious source”

      When have I have never said that? Or are you just making things up again?

      • Cluster August 6, 2012 / 9:25 pm

        No Casper, Amazona pretty much nailed it. We read you like a book. But I will give you credit for taking such a principled stance on Reid’s taxes from 3 days ago.

        That was hilarious.

        No one has suggested that he hasn’t leased the required documents or that he has broken the law. Only that he hasn’t paid income taxes.

        Casper,
        “I was being sarcastic. You didn’t get that little play on old Harry Reid’s words?”
        Yes I did. I still think it’s a good idea. Wouldn’t it tell us a lot about a politician’s character if we knew whether or not he made money off of a company that might have received a special deal due to the politician’s influence?

        Of course you being you, casper, you seldom stand up on your hind legs and actually make a definitive statement, preferring to slink out and coyly murmur some vague implication of wrongdoing so you can then scurry back into your hole and squeak “But that’s not what I SAID !!!!!

        You really are quite a spineless little creature, aren’t you? (Note: casper is really a rather large and fleshy multi-chinned chap, he just comes across as a little little man because he is so peevish and petty.)

      • Amazona August 6, 2012 / 10:10 pm

        Anyone remember casper hollering for Obama to release the records of his house purchase and explain the role that the Rezkos played in making that purchase and the adjoining property purchase possible?

        Neither do I.

      • Amazona August 6, 2012 / 10:25 pm

        casper, you query: “…..are you just making things up again?”

        Again? AGAIN??? Here, again, you employ your snippy little passive-aggressive snottiness. You know I don’t make things up but you throw this out, undoubtedly so you can squeak that no, you didn’t actually call me a liar.

        But by the use of the word “again” you do say that I have invented things in the past, so step right up, casper, pull up your big boy pants, and tell us when this occurred and what I invented.

        Weasel…….

    • Amazona August 6, 2012 / 10:34 pm

      Let’s just take us a little look-see at just one of the inconvenient questions casper tried to dodge by calling me a liar:

      For example, what would be of more significance to the nation? Learning that one candidate has a spotless record of absolute adherence to all tax laws and because of the nature of his income and the existing tax laws paid only 15% of that income in taxes, or learning that the other candidate’s entire resume is a sham, based upon fraudulent claims and a lengthy and complex series of elaborate lies spread out over many years?

      As we can see, he has absolutely no interest whatsoever in finding out if The One We Have All Been Waiting For really did attend the schools he put on his resume, or graduated with the degrees he claimed, or who paid for his education, or how a mediocre student got into these schools, or even if he attended one or more as a foreign student, a citizen of another country.

      No, none of this is of the slightest interest to cappy, who prefers to fret and fuss over Mitt Romney’s tax returns.

      Using a fake SS number is a felony, refusing to provide copies of tax returns is not, yet casper has shown us what HE finds important and significant.

  6. Cluster August 6, 2012 / 10:34 pm

    I support this 100%. What say you Obama?

    Romney should call a press conference and issue a challenge in front of the nation. He should agree to release more of his tax returns, only if Obama unseals his college records. Simple and straight-forward. Mitt should ask “What could possibly be so embarrassing in your college records from 29 years ago, that you are afraid to let America’s voters see it? If it’s THAT bad, maybe it’s something the voters ought to see.” Suddenly the tables are turned. Now Obama is on the defensive.

      James, how are moderators cowards? I have never understood that. Deleting juvenile comments is just a part of moderating a rational debate. Look, you are pathetic little man, and your hateful comments are not welcome here yet you persist on frequenting a place where you are not welcome. That’s not only bizarre, it’s a sign of a lonely, isolated, psychopath. Good luck with that.

      • GMB August 7, 2012 / 4:20 am

        You are making less sense than usual Thomas. I suggest you call walmart and get your meds refilled and start taking them again.

        I do admire your “sticktoiveness” though. If you need help paying for said meds please let me know. I can help you.

        😛

        BuB Buyah…jimmah……..LOL
        or should I say sasan, how are things in houston jimmah? er sasan?

      • GMB August 7, 2012 / 7:15 am

        Lets be nice here Neo. Remember that Thomas is operating under the influence of collectivist ideology. He has many people over him doing his thinking for him. My guess would be that he is the poster child for the unthinking koskiddies.

        So, lets cut the little commie some slack, after all, he knows not what he does. That and maybe his meds are way to expensive for him to pay for without taxpayer help.

        Cut him some slack, why yes. Stop watching him, never. Always know where your foes are and what they doing. Some old dead guy from China said that thousands of years ago. Still true today, not true?

      • neocon1 August 7, 2012 / 7:44 am

        tommy-sasan is a goat “herding” muzzi….
        who was crying on B4V when his favorite goat dumped him…LOL

      • GMB August 7, 2012 / 7:47 am

        Now now Neo. I find that insulting. Insinuating that Thomas had relations with a goat.

        I will not have insulting goats that way!!

        :p

        poor sasan/jimmah still has not figured out that nazis and commies are BOTH leftists.

        A Little Secret About the Nazis

        They were left-wing socialists. Yes, the National Socialist Workers Party of Germany, otherwise known as the Nazi Party, was indeed socialist, and it had a lot in common with the modern left. Hitler preached class warfare, agitating the working class to resist “exploitation” by capitalists — particularly Jewish capitalists, of course. Their program called for the nationalization of education, health care, transportation, and other major industries. They instituted and vigorously enforced a strict gun control regimen. They encouraged pornography, illegitimacy, and abortion, and they denounced Christians as right-wing fanatics. Yet a popular myth persists that the Nazis themselves were right-wing extremists. This insidious lie biases the entire political landscape, and the time has come to expose it.

        Richard Poe, editor of Frontpage Magazine, sets the record straight:

        Nazism was inspired by Italian Fascism, an invention of hardline Communist Benito Mussolini. During World War I, Mussolini recognized that conventional socialism wasn’t working. He saw that nationalism exerted a stronger pull on the working class than proletarian brotherhood. He also saw that the ferocious opposition of large corporations made socialist revolution difficult. So in 1919, Mussolini came up with an alternative strategy. He called it Fascism. Mussolini described his new movement as a “Third Way” between capitalism and communism. As under communism, the state would exercise dictatorial control over the economy. But as under capitalism, the corporations would be left in private hands.

        Hitler followed the same game plan. He openly acknowledged that the Nazi party was “socialist” and that its enemies were the “bourgeoisie” and the “plutocrats” (the rich). Like Lenin and Stalin, Hitler eliminated trade unions, and replaced them with his own state-run labor organizations. Like Lenin and Stalin, Hitler hunted down and exterminated rival leftist factions (such as the
        Communists). Like Lenin and Stalin, Hitler waged unrelenting war

        You are still claiming that a goat would have anything to do with Thomas. This is just plain wrong. I do not believe for one moment that any goat would voluntarily associate with Thomas.

        Does chloroform work on goats? If so that would explain it.

        Happy days are here again!

        😛

      • GMB August 7, 2012 / 8:01 am

        Neo, please don’t confuse the collectivists with facts. It never works. What you need is some lie that is so big, no one will question it.

        Oppsie. I just quoted Thomas’s hero.

        I beg your pardon, one and all.

      • neocon1 August 7, 2012 / 9:23 am

        I beg your pardon

        Please see your Governor for this 🙂

    Interesting. Greece has begun “Operation Zeus Denious” The rounding up and deportation of illegal immigrants. Since we know that anything european socialist do is okay with our homegrown socialist, is it now okay for the United States to do the same thing? On this scale for you nit pickers that is.
