TAXES, GOVERNMENT HAND-OUTS & BAIL-OUTS!Posted Sunday, December 12, 2010, at 10:31 AM
As far as the "Bush" tax credits are concerned, I know that if the tax cuts were not extended, the people would once again be sucked dry. History has taught us, over and over again, that the people will put up with an oppressive government or leader for just so long and then it usually leads to violent revolt.
I have experienced this feeling of being bled dry for the past few years. I have worked a large number of days to pay the IRS alot of money. I have paid my part and like all of us, deserve a voice in how my money is spent! I can only give so much before I have to take a stand and say, NO MORE! History also teaches us that when taxes are low, the country flourishes! People with more money will stimulate the economy far more than government hand-outs! The people can save the economy not the "powers-that-be"!!! People who owe their living to a government become bitter and ashamed which leads to a hatred of the entity that is giving the hand-outs. People who work for their money and take care of their own families without outside help are stronger, happier people with a pride that they have acheived what they have because of their hard work. Work is good! Hard work is good for the soul of man. Those who live off others, are enslaved, in bondage to that entity. No person can be happy as long as they are under the thumb of an authority that disguises itself as a helpful entity. Charity between people is wonderful. Government assistance will enslave! Believe it or not! Take it or leave it! These are the thoughts I have to rant about today. What are yours?

I've lived in Mtn Home since 1989, so that's...hold on...I'm thinking...WOW! Exactly 25 years! Boy, I think I can almost declare myself an Idahoan. But my family is British and I grew up in Louisiana around lots of other Brits so I still think I'm a little bit of a mutt. Those of you who have been around awhile may remember when I used to blog all the time. My opinions weren't very accepted and there was always an issue because I work for the county. That really wasn't fair because I NEVER blog at work! And I am still entitled to my opinions and thoughts about city and county issues, right? However, it stirred a lot of pots and those pots certainly can make a lot of noise! Since I'm a writer, I took what I wrote in my blog seriously so I spent a lot of time researching things which got exhausting to do when you're not even get a paycheck for it. So I stopped. That was a blessing to many! However, to this day, I still have people stop me and ask me why I wasn't blogging and t! hey missed it. I've missed it. Mainly because there are so many issues that come up and I have no voice except around my friends and I'm sure they are tired of it.
