A social engineering bill to restrict residence in the suburbs and rural areas and force Americans into city centers has passed the United States Senate Banking Committee and is on the fast track to passage in the Senate.
Barring legislative action before the end of the year the Federal estate tax — also known as the death tax — will return on Jan. 1, 2011. That means the Feds will steal 55 percent of the estates valued at more than $1 million of people who die after Jan. 1.
Elected elites and their media lapdogs have successfully sold the argument that only the rich pay estate taxes and therefore those taxes are justified. But add the value of a home, a retirement account (such as a 401k) and a little bit of savings and other real property and it doesn’t take long to pass the $1 million threshold.
Thomas Jefferson expressed his own views of the “death tax.”

Did you know that coconut water — the clear liquid inside a young coconut — is very handy to have around.

The Barack Obama administration has sided with the world against Arizona. That’s essentially what he did when the United States State Department referred the Arizona immigration law to the United Nations Human Rights Council for review.
Mention nullification as a way to resist Federal tyranny and prepare to be branded a racist who wants to bring back slavery. But nullification — the idea that if Congress passes an unconstitutional law the states don’t have to acknowledge or obey it — enjoys a rich history in the United States. It began long before slavery was a major political issue and is being used even today.
In Nullification: How To Resist Tyranny In The 21st Century, Thomas E. Woods Jr., explores the history of nullification in America. It’s a history that few students are taught in government schools, and one that even fewer mainstream historians are willing — or able — to discuss. In fact, Woods writes that at a scholarly debate he attended in 2003, only he and one other academic defended the Thomas Jefferson view of nullification (as espoused in the Virginia and Kentucky resolutions in opposition to the Alien and Sedition Acts and known as the Principles of ’98).
Woods holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard and received a master’s, a Master of Philosophy and Ph.D. from Columbia University. He’s a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, he edited Exploring American History: From Colonial Times to 1877 (an 11-volume encyclopedia) and is the author of 10 books.
He says that the Founders meant for the states to be checks against Federal tyranny and the 10th Amendment was put into the Constitution to reinforce the rights of states to nullify unConstitutional laws.
