March 17 2023 “Just this week, the Biden Justice Department went to the Supreme Court to urge it to allow cities and states to inflict outrageous lawsuits against oil companies for allegedly causing global warming.. “

Some economist love property taxes. Most citizens hate the thought of them. Afterall, when we purchase an item, especially land, its supposed to be ours without question.

Our system is set up to tax property owners for services we offer to citizens such as police, fire, with school charges usually topping the list. Interestingly, only 56% of first time homeowners had children in 2020 meaning 44% paid school taxes without using the school system.

How did we design this system:

By the end of the century (1900) thirty-three states had included uniformity clauses in new constitutions or had amended old ones to include the requirement that all property be taxed equally by value.”

How much is collected:

State and local governments collected a combined $3.5 trillion of general revenues in fiscal year 2019. Local governments collected $1.9 trillion in general revenues in 2019. In 2019 inflation adjusted-dollars, combined state and local general revenue increased from $1.2 trillion in 1977 to $3.5 trillion in 2019, or a 188 percent increase.. ” These numbers do not include Federal taxdollars which is estimated at 31% of local revenues.

Most local revenues, $1. 9 Trillion in 2019, mainly consist of property taxes and transfers (federal and state):

How do we pay for education on a fair scale? How do we pay for services, including schools other than property tax? Is our system efficiently using property tax dollars? Should property taxes include forced financing of private corporate improvements (economic development/tax credits)?

Confusion often leads to questions especially about our climate. Some authoritative figures say that the industrial revolution and its pollution, namely CO2, is causing our planet’s destruction. According to historical charts, that may not be true. Might political parties use our climate as a way to confiscate our money?

Human civilizations started forming around 6,000 years ago. The industrial revolution began picking up steam around 1950 AD where, according to chart 1, is still one of the lowest points of CO2 levels compared to the Millions of years of Earth’s history.

Chart 1

Tell us what good things happen to humans and earth when we experience higher CO2 levels.

Political parties have been known to “take liberties” with the truth. Would they use any means, including using sea levels (drowning), to solidify reelection and raise taxes that benefit the companies they work for? According to Chart 2, Earth’s sea levels naturally rise and fall over the course of time.

Chart 2

CO2 and sea levels are always included in discussiins about earth’s changing climate. Our personal view can only span 100 years or less. When we see a slight change, we naturally take notice but perspective is everything.

The least heard argument concerning our planet’s climate is the acidity of our oceans. Some claim that higher C02 concentrations cause our ocean to become more acidic. But, what about the perspective? Over millions of years, depicted by chart 3, we can see that the acidity of our oceans is hanging tight with the acidity from Millions of years ago.

The Roads Upon Which We Travel For Food

We budget our money at home for our family’s well-being. Extravagant purchases are made with only the authorization of the entire organization to inform those who will be financially responsible of the extra burden and possible reduction of luxuries or even necessities. The same respect should be shown between government and citizens who own the votes concerning our Roads.

Recently in the Indiana news , an inquiry by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), an offshoot office of the Presidential Cabinet’s Department of Interior, concerning whether to build road crossing for animals, mainly deer, to save lobbying insurance companies an estimated $8 Billion every year.

The Department of Interior references a study completed by the Pew Charitable Trusts that notes the structures for wildlife crossings are costly. According to the study, 2 overpasses, 5 underpasses and 10.4 miles of wildlife fencing cost $10 Million in Grand County Colorado. In Trapper’s point Wyoming, 2 overpasses, 6 tunnels and 12 miles of wildlife fencing were approximate $12 Million. Expensive, to say the least.

Building road, especially bridges, is always expensive. Our National Highway Trust Fund managed by the Department of Transportation, a division of the Presidential Cabinet, has been showing the signs of a weak economy in recent years.

Late in 2021, Senators allocated more than $100 Billion to bail out the Highway Trust Fund used to smooth out the rough, pot-hole ridden roads on our way to the 9-5 Grind that causes billions of dollars of damage to our personal. In 2020 alone, The Fund paid out $15 Billion more than it took in with expectations of the deficit growing yearly. The Fund’s deficit has been accruing for more than a decade.

We expect our tax dollars to be used toward helping citizens and efficiently processing our dollars toward those programs that enhance the lives of all citizens, not corporations who make yearly contributions to political campaigns like Insurance companies who spent more than $125 Million in 2020 to sway political will.

If insurance companies want to save $8 billion per year, then insurance companies should fork out the cash to save that $8 Billion per year, not citizens.

While families struggle with keeping food on the table and maintaining their 11 year old vehicle, our President’s plan is to give more and more of our hard earned tax dollars to foreigners and huge corporations through regulation and legislation.

According to Notebook, “representatives of VW and other potential EV battery makers met with European Commission officials last week in Brussels, and laid out their argumentation why they would be putting their Europe-based projects on hold in favor of the US. VW, in particular, calculated that it will receive up to US$10 billion from the US government over the IRA’s 10-year subsidy span.” The Financial Times and Marketwatch also reporting the $10 Billion subsidy.

The article goes on to say “The incentives include US$0.35/kWh of produced battery capacity, as well as a similar assembly subsidy. Analysts recently calculated that Tesla will be getting up to $3.5 billion annually… “

Unfortunately, this means an increase of Chinese imports for materials and further degradation of the people in Africa who have been reported to mine cobalt for EV batteries with their hands. China struck a $6. 5 Billion deal with the African government for mining rights. These deals between Africa and the Chinese were reportedly initiated by the investment firm of Hunter Biden.

Spending billions of tax dollars on new technology while USA citizens are struggling to meet basics needs and our national deficit grows is irresponsible. “Let them eat cake! “

The correlation between illegal aliens entering the United States and the amount of fentanyl seizures is highly connected by just the sheer numbers. Our country is being invaded by foreign nationals who pledge allegiance to another country. Some are foreign nationals who are members of drug cartels, are drug dealers, or worse.

Their connections are astounding.
Between January and December of 2022, the Drug Enforcement Administration of the Presidential Cabinet said “it seized far greater quantities of illicit fentanyl than ever before in 2022.” The amount of Fentanyl-laced, fake prescription pills and more than 10,000 pounds of fentanyl powder seized in 2022 outpaces 2021 seizures. Fentanyl is a highly addictive man-made opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin.

As the number of fentanyl deaths spike, so did the number of illegal aliens. According to the US Border patrol, the number of detained and nondetained illegal aliens surpassed 4,700,000 in 2022 compared to nearly 2,000,000 in 2021 and a little less than 650,000 in 2020.

Data from the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests the avalanche of overdose deaths — driven largely by the spread of illicit fentanyl –may have crested in March 2022. Researchers found a staggering 110,236 people died in a single 12-month period, a stunning new record.” This overdose death rate would rank 8th in the USA, between Alzheimer and Diabetes, in the 2020 list of the top 12 leading causes of Death in the United States.

Drug Enforcement Administration emphasizes their robust program concerning fentanyl “is to defeat the two Mexican drug cartels—the Sinaloa and Jalisco (CJNG) Cartels—that are primarily responsible for the fentanyl. Most of the fentanyl trafficked by the Sinaloa and CJNG Cartels is being mass-produced at secret factories in Mexico with chemicals sourced largely from China.”

China is well known for its predatory actions concerning innovative ways to conquer an enemy. The USA and China have been “friendly foes” for a very long time with China on the verge of declaring war against the United States over Taiwan in recent years. They wouldn’t hesitate to use Mexican Drug Cartels to make a few bucks and encourage a deadly drug problem in the United States.

The timing of excessive overdose death coincides with the very large influx of illegal immigrants during the same time period. In 2022, more than 4 Million illegal aliens were counted crossing the border (not including those who completely evaded Border Patrol), 10,000 pounds of Fentanyl, and more than 110,000 people died of illicit drug use in a 12 month period.

Enforcement of our immigration laws just might prevent our citizens from unnecessary exposure to deadly drugs that kill more people in the United States than Firearm Suicide and Firearm Homicide combined, more than double.

Our current administration has mobilized the Presidential cabinet to take firearms from the holsters of citizens. The current attack on people 25 years and younger enlisted in military prevents them from defending themselves. They can fight for us but not for themselves.

The Heritage Foundation completed a report that emphasizes their conclusion “almost every major study on defensive gun use has found that Americans use their firearms defensively between 500,000 and 3 million times each year. ” The Heritage Foundation report may be found at “https://datavisualizations.heritage.org/firearms/defensive-gun-uses-in-the-us/

When a politician wants to pass a law, the first item on the agenda is finding a heartstring to pull. As if suicide is not bad enough, they want to take away your Human given right to defend yourself.

The Biden administration announced the campaign to take the right of firearm ownership from those under 25 years old. Here comes the heartstring pull. They add that in an effort to combat suicide, firearm ownership of those military personnel under 25 years old must be relinquished.

Suicide is a devastating act for families to live through. The effects of a lossed loved one can live on for a lifetime. According to the CDC, non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Natives and those who are male, 85+ years old are the largest groups of the 45,979 individuals in the USA who took their life in 2020. Nearly half of those, 21,687, used a method such as suffocation or poisoning to reach their goal.

Positive results: The military has taken extra care in recent years to provide counseling services and support to our military personnel resulting with “the active component suicide rate decrease from 2020 to 2021” Elizabeth Foster, Executive Director, Office of Force Resiliency Department of Defense.

The Annual Report on Suicide in the Military CY 2021 (includes CY 2021 DoDSER) Reveals that 328 active service members lost their lives to a suicide battle. Not even half of the 328 active member suicides were under 25 years of age in 2021 which brings one to question the Biden Adminstration wanting a military firearm ownership age restriction. In contrast, how many lives were saved through the Second Amendment right to carry a firearm?

Taking away Second Amendment rights from citizens is not about protecting them. This act is boldly and plainly to remove the right to defend oneself of a Constitutional and Human given right.

According to Brittanica “regulation, in government, a rule or mechanism that limits, steers, or otherwise controls social behaviour.” Regulation is used to prevent or enhance business deals that prohibit the free market from determining who succeeds and who fails through discreet deals made with both Congress and authorities in control of Regulatory Agencies.

Congress passes many laws that have been written by the industry most interested in its passage for profit reasons. Once the law has been “lobbied” enough by industry, its passed and then sent to the appropriate Presidential Agency to be used in forming Regulations against their competitors.

Regulations are enforced under law drawn up by Congress. Congress does not approve regulations but there is always a 30 day comment period for citizens to voice their concerns.

The regulatory agencies are used to tax citizens indirectly and spend enormous amounts of money to prevent certain companies from succeeding and to help others that contribute campaign dollars.

Regulatory agencies, also known as the Presidents cabinet , are under the President’s control and have recently become tools used by the President and others in attempts to bypass Congress to create law. Agencies include regulators such as Department of the Treasury, Department of Transportation, and Department of Health and Human Services. Regulatory agencies are also lobbied by Corporations, not just Congress.

These regulatory economic scenarios to benefit certain companies can becoming very complicated. Simplifying the issue shows the true smell of a regulation.

A simple example: A coal stove company called Coal decides they aren’t selling enough stoves. They lobby for a law to be passed through Congress that allows Regulators to enact limits on the amount of gas that may be used on home stoves, an excessive tax for those who continue to use, and forces manufactures to only produce Coal stoves, not gas, to protect the environment. This very small regulation, among thousands filed every year, would put most gas stove manufacturers out of business and pads the Coal profit margin with a huge windfall. The process repeats starting with campaign contributions.

Regulations are Corporate Welfare.
