FLAG BURNING SURVEY – HOW DO YOU FEEL?

I have spent over five years writing nearly 1000 articles for several reasons. This started with a challenge from my old friend “Tadpole” Keel to use my knowledge gained having worked and visited in so many countries worldwide and in forty-nine of our fifty states.  

Another old friend and mentor, Phil Sizer, who was my boss at OTIS/Halliburton made one of the sojourns that took us to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Abi Dhabi, Dubai. Qatar, Kuwait, Norway and The Netherlands twice. When I started this blog, he has challenged me to broaden my horizons with challenges to explore clandestine organizations like the Federal Reserve System in America and a scary group called Tavistock. If you wish to broaden your knowledge and see how these two secret organizations function, read my summarizations.

What prompted me to write my first article asking for your inputs was twofold. Any writer functions on feedback. Unfortunately, my efforts have never motivated more than a dozen people to have ever commented, criticized or praised the effort. Currently, there are 612 people worldwide who subscribe to receive my articles. Another 275 friends on Facebook and Twitter.

My second reason was to try another approach asking for you to please respond to this article. Help me find out how many people agree or disagree that burning our flag should be a lawful freedom. Our President-elect has fanned the flames of hate that he feels this flag burning expresses and should be punishable with jail time and loss of citizenship. How do you feel? I would like to use this feedback to share specifically respond.

I will start with my own feelings. With my parent’s consent, I joined the US Navy at 17 and made a commitment to give about four years of my life to my country. We had just ended WWII a couple of years earlier and America was united and everyone loved this great country. Then the bankers created the Korean war that added another year to my committed enlistment. My love for this country has never lessened for any reason.

Sadly, the bankers and one of the weakest administrations in American history got us involved in Viet Nam. This unleashed a new era of communists inspired dissident young Americans to start the hate campaign and flag burning incidents. For those who did not know both Hillary and Bill Clinton were two of these dissidents. The most hate-filled American was Jane Fonda and eventually John Kerry who is our Secretary of State now hugging every Muslim he can find. What he and Hillary have done to suck up to the terrorist world should be punishable by loss of their citizenship in my opinion.

Obviously. I agree with Trump that burning our flag that I learned to salute at 17 should be a federal crime. My punishment would be more severe as I feel that loss of citizenship should be forever and that the offender should be imprisoned or banished. How a Supreme Court allowed this to be legal is beyond belief. I feel certain that if a vote were held today the four Democratic zealots on the current Supreme “Political” Court would uphold this despicable decision.  

America needs to be reunited and Trump is the first President to at least try. After eight years of hate-filled rhetoric that has divided America we need peace unification to survive.

Please share your feelings and let me follow up this posting with another article denoting how you feel.

OBAMAS PLAN FOR AMERICA- IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT?

FACTS ARE FACTS…………..WAKE UP AMERICA

A good friend sent me this material and it reminded me of the article I wrote on Denmark. I hope enough sane Americans will see how these “progressive” countries think that between 59.6% up to 80% of an individuals income should be paid back to the government to be fair. Soon you will not have to move to Europe to enjoy the Socialists benefits. If Obama is re-elected you can share you hard earned pay and retirement savings with the Occupiers and those who refuse to work.   CB

Having just returned from three weeks in Greece, I can assure you the cost of living and the income of the average individual is creating a severe economic slow down, but more than that, they keep electing the individuals who promise to keep the unearned, unworked for incomes unchanged. In other words they promise to keep the government handouts coming in exchange for their vote. How they can possibly do this has yet to be exhibited, explained or even discussed much among the Greek people themselves. They just trust that the man they voted for will be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat, because that’s what he said he could do 😉 They raised taxes on the rich years ago . . . and the super rich left the country for less burdensome rates elsewhere . . . in many cases taking their companies with them. 😦

If you’ve started to wonder what the real costs of socialism are going to be – once the full program in these United States hits your wallet, take a look at the table. As you digest these mind-boggling figures, keep in mind that in spite of these astronomical tax rates, these countries are still not financing their social welfare programs exclusively from tax revenues! They are deeply mired in public debt of gargantuan proportions. Greece has reached the point where its debt is so huge it is in imminent danger of defaulting. That is the reason the European economic community has intervened to bail them out. If you’re following the financial news, you know Spain and Portugal are right behind Greece.


The
United States is now heading right down the same path. The VAT tax in the table is the national sales tax that Europeans pay. Stay tuned because that is exactly what you can expect to see the administration proposing after the fall elections. The initial percentage in the United States isn’t going to be anywhere near the outrageous numbers you now see in Europe. The current outrageous numbers in Europe didn’t start out as outrageous either. They started out as minuscule – right around the 1% or 2% where they will start out in the United States. Magically, however, they ran up over the years to where they are now. Expect the same thing here. (Kinda like the Federal Excise Tax on tires that was established in WWII to help off-set the war effort and was supposed to go away after the war)

It is the very notion that with hard work and perseverance, anybody can get ahead economically here in the USA . Do you think that can ever happen with tax rates between 60% and 80%? Think again. With the government taking that percentage of your money, your life will be exactly like life in Europe … You will never be able to buy a home. (Well actually our government will tell the banks they have to loan you the money even if you know they can’t pay it back) You will never buy a car. (Our government will simply take over the auto industry and sell everyone a car . . . for a time anyway) You will never send your children to college. (See the above, State run institutions will be forced by the gov. to make a University education available for all) Let’s not shuffle the battle cry of the socialists under the rug either. It’s always the same cry. Equalize income. Spread the wealth to the poor (whoever they are). Level the economic playing field. Accomplish that and everything will be rosy.

It’s time to take a hard look at reality. Greece is a perfect example. Despite the socialism system that has ruled this country for decades, with a 65% tax rate, they are drowning in public debt, would have defaulted without hundreds of billions in bailout money from the EU, and still. . . 20% of their population lives in poverty. What has all that socialism money bought, besides ultimate power for the politicians running the show? Do you think these people are “free”? They are slaves to their economic “system.” Instead of spreading the wealth around, spread this info around. It might wake up some people.

If you agree with this, share it, if you do not agree with it, read it again!   

Thanks Jim

If you’ve started to wonder what the real costs of socialism will be when fully implemented take a look at these taxes. As you digest these mind-boggling figures, keep in mind that in spite of these astronomical tax rates, these countries are still not financing their social welfare programs exclusively with tax revenues! They are deeply mired in public debt of gargantuan proportions.  Greece has reached the point where it’s debt is so huge it is in imminent danger of defaulting. That is the reason the European economic community has intervened to bail them out.  If you’re following the financial news, you know Spain and Portugal are right behind Greece .

 

The United States is now heading right down the same path. The VAT tax (Value Added Tax) in the table is the national sales tax that Europeans pay. Stay tuned because that is exactly what you can expect to see the administration proposing. The initial percentage in the United States isn’t going to be anywhere near the outrageous numbers you now see in Europe. Guess what… the current outrageous numbers in Europe didn’t start out as outrageous either. They started out as miniscule, around the 1% or 2% where they will likely start out in the United States. Magically, however, they ran up over the years to where they are now. Expect the same thing here.

anybody can get ahead economically here in the USA . Do you think that can ever happen with tax rates between 60% and 80%?  Think again. With the government taking that percentage of your money, your life will be exactly like life in Europe. You will never be able to buy a home. You will never buy a car. You will never send your children to college.

They’re not.  They are slaves to their economic “system.” Instead of spreading the wealth around, spread this around, it might wake some people up for a change.
