Calculating Taxes

Just looking at the US tax rates… you’d be shocked at how high taxes are in the “home of the free”. 

You hear politicians say that we don’t tax enough or that people are getting away with not paying taxes, but that’s because we have exorbitant tax rates for all and the federal government grants giant tax breaks to their “friends” (also known as campaign donors).

Let’s say you lived in California (That’s me!) and worked for a corporation and you made over one million dollars, by the time a dollar of income went through a corporation, to the employee and was used to buy a good, that $1 would now be worth  $0.329423. That means that over $0.67 is taken out of each dollar as a tax. 

That’s ridiculous. Over 66% of all income generated by private industry ends up in the pockets of the government (at different levels). 

I don’t know why I still live here or why anyone would conduct business here. The only thing I can think of is how great the natural landscape is and that I was born here so I have human bonds that are hard to break. Other than that, I should be packing up and moving. 

My favorite nonsensical government idea is carbon taxes. First the vilify industry, then they outlaw it and then they tax it and the last step is to allow companies to pollute by paying for and even buying additional tax credits. In the end, you haven’t ended pollution, you’ve simply profited from it. But that’s what government does best, profit from the misfortune of the people.

The Biggest Scam In The History Of Mankind (Debt Ceiling Truth)

This is maybe one of the clearest explanations of the Federal Reserve sham you’ll see.

Great video, but there is no such thing as “real money” or “intrinsic value”. All value is subjective.

What certain assets do have is value as via alternative usage. For example, gold has a value as a commodity because it can be used in electronics, manufacturing or as jewelry or other forms.

But if tomorrow everyone stopped using gold, it wouldn’t retain any value because it doesn’t have a “built in value” or “intrinsic value”.

Tariffs: restrictions placed on the importation of foreign goods for the protection of domestic producers, so as to enhance their profitability thus enabling them to pay the taxes necessary for the support of foreign aid programs which provide assistance to those nations which cannot sell their goods in this country.

Taxation: A practice employed by governments in looting all of its citizens in order to obtain the necessary funds to chase down and punish looters. Butler Shaffer (via conza)

If taxation without consent is not robbery, then any band of robbers have only to declare themselves a government, and all their robberies are legalized

Lysander Spooner

One can extrapolate and argue that if any law without consent is not slavery, then any band of authoritarians need only to declare themselves a government and all their coercion is legalized.

Obviously, this man have never heard of the CIA’s Drone program.

NASA is wasting our tax dollars to tell us that they don’t have enough of our tax dollars. Perhaps the next time they are in space, they can discover the natural element called IRONY. 
I have an even better proposal, NASA, what if we eliminated that half a penny you take from our stolen dollar and we allow private industry to invest in you or to build competing models.
Oh yea, we have. 
Space X is replacing NASA as the space vehicle that will travel between Earth and the ISS (International Space Station). Started on private investment and will soon be publically traded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpaceX
I love NASA and everything that NASA has done, but their insistence that without NASA there would be no space program is and out right lie that I refuse to support. 


Come on people…. it’s space. We have an endless amount of space to explore and we aren’t!


We have a finite amount of space here on Earth that still has tons of issues. Leave space exploration for the private firms. Let them find, terraform and import all the resources we need.
