Tax Mahal

Monday, April 12, 2010

Here’s yet another disgusting display of bureaucratic arrogance on the part of the parasitical tax-and-spend state: spending $100M to “green” an old IRS center in Andover.

As part of a “green” initiative that helped justify the use of stimulus money, geothermal heating and cooling systems will be installed, according to a news release from the U.S. General Services Administration, the agency that oversees federal buildings.

“A new main entrance will also be constructed to give employees a more welcoming feeling when entering the facility,” the release said. “Overall, the makeover will result with a more modern and energy-efficient facility.”

The expansion of the totalitarian monster continues at its most rapid pace ever.

    It surely helps to be a New England Ivy Leaguer to screw up bigtime. We all know that Bush majored in booze and minored in taking up space, and Obama majored in Basic BS and minored in Acorn. All the rest of them in gov’t positions major in projects designed to grab your wallet. For a clue as to what we can expect with our new, but not improved healthcare program, take a look at the state of MA who is now being sued by the insurance companies. A preview of things to come for the rest of the country. See what this fella says on gettng FREE CARE IN MA…..

    “Thousands of consumers are gaming Massachusetts’ 2006 health insurance law ”
    ……”
    MassCare, the State provided insurance program covers everything and loads of people are finding ways to get on the state program and get healthcare for free. My coworker makes $90K per year. His girlfriend is a student and makes virtually nothing. So she got pregnant onto MassCare she went. They had the baby free of charge courtesy of the state. Does he plan to marry her? No Way! What and give up the free healthcare? Sure it’s a hassle and there is red tape and waiting. But hell, it’s free.

    So MassCare is bankrupting the state financially and bankrupting the family morally. There is markedly less commitment to the relationship than would otherwise be. It has placed their relationship not on a plane of duty and responsibility but of merely convenience. Their decision on MassCare was predicated on convenience. With the relationship founded on convenience when it becomes difficult will the relationship be discarded as inconvenient? I would hope not, but I hear statements that tell me otherwise.

    Great job libs. Killing the state and the family too”

    “A new main entrance will also be constructed to give employees a more welcoming feeling when entering the facility.”

    How about razing the entire thing to the ground to give American taxpayers a more welcoming feeling when pretending to be “free” in Amerika?

    When Obama spent 17 minutes explaining to one woman the other day that she should not feel overtaxed, I knew what he was signalling: If our creditors get tired of buying our T-bills (lending us money), then the middle class should get ready for the mother of all tax increases. Manufacturers should also brace themselves for a VAT tax (that will probably lead to even more jobs being outsourced). He really doesn’t know how wealth is created, only how to skim off the top of existing bundles.

    More on the ‘green movement’…One Mr Brian Sussman, a veteran meteoroligist from San Fran, has written a book called CLIMATEGATE–basically an indictment of one hugh scam. He traces the origins of the current eco/climate scare, by guiding the reader via the diabolical minds of Marx/Engles in the 1800s, to today’s United Nations global governance machinations. Big brother wants to have a smart meter in your home connected to big brother’s cousin, energy provider, who would then cut your power if they felt it’s the wrong time to do the laundry. Sussman, the canary in the mine, says that it’s never been about weather; it’s about control of Americans and everything they do. So what this means is that in the future we could have a green goon at our front door coming in to check and make sure we have the latest ‘energy saver’ this and that. Talk about major privacy issues..read all about it in the article here.

    I had to go to this I.R.S. office when my stepfather died. I was named administrator of his estate and unbeknown to me he had not filed tax returns for a few years.
    They presented me with some papers to sign and I requested to take them with me to a lawyer because I did not understand just what these papers were saying.

    T was told that the papers could not leave the building. I said fine and attempted to leave.

    I was detained and told I could not leave the building until I signed the papers.
    Me and my friend were held there until I put my signature on the papers.

    I did so with my left hand so the signature would not match anything else that I had signed.

    I learned a most valuable lesson about our Federal governments employees and their Gestapo Tactics that day and this post, Ms De Coster, has unfortunately brought that vile episode of my life back to my mind!! UGH!!!!

    @cousin lucky.

    Wow, what a frightening, yet not-too-surprising story. Next time bring your Glock and tell them your leaving.

    Mike,

    That happened over thirty years ago. I think a citizen would get life in jail now for bringing a firearm into a Federal Building.

    I live in New York City now and having guns is only for the police, military and the criminals. The teenagers carry guns but honest law-abiding people are not allowed to protect themselves.

    It is an extremely stupid policy of our ” out there in in fairyland ” politicians that is not going to change anytime soon.

    Here a person knifes a relative to death and hides the body in a wall. When he is caught years later he gets eight years for manslaughter.

    There is No Justice For Victims and their Families in the State of New York!!
