O’Donnell’s PAC To Fight Estate Tax And Obamacare

December 10, 2010 by  

O'Donnell's PAC to fight estate tax and ObamacareTea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell isn't letting a midterm loss in the Delaware Senate race keep her out of the political arena.

O'Donnell, the embattled Republican who lost to Senator-elect Chris Coons (D-Del.) last month, has announced that she is in the process of forming an issue-oriented Political Action Committee (PAC), according to CBS News. The group is tentatively titled ChristinePAC, following in the footsteps of Sarah Palin's SarahPAC, which the former Alaska governor formed after falling short in her vice presidential bid in 2008.

O'Donnell said that her PAC will focus on specific issues rather than backing candidates. She said her first goals are to advocate for the repeals of the estate tax and Obamacare. She is also against the extension of unemployment benefits, which she linked with two other events that occurred this week.

"Tragedy comes in threes. Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards' passing and Barack Obama's announcement of extending the tax cuts, which is good, but also extending the unemployment benefits," she said, quoted by the news provider.

The Associated Press reports that O'Donnell has received a book deal from St. Martin's Press. The publication, which will address her Senate campaign and the political process, is scheduled for release in August 2011.

    Okay, Pearl Harbor occurred in 1941. December 7 is just a day of rememberance. Second, equating extending unemployment benefits with over 2,000 American lives lost at Pearl Harbor or the death of Elizabeth Edwards is falling off the wagon nuts. Third, fighting the estate tax is another fat-cat way-right cause since only the very rich ever get their estates taxed. Finally, if you want to talk about EGO (as many seem to want to do with our President) naming your PAC by your first name; i.e. Sarah or Christine is over the top in that category.

      Only rich pay estate taxs huh. Wonder how much the Kennedys paid over the years, Ted lucked out and died during a no tax year. Had it been a 45 or 50% year wonder how much he would have paid. Small farmers and small sole propryter business’s that have some property or equipment that is valued over 250,000 or even one million how much tax is the kids supposed to pay and how without selling out to the large corps.

      • Fish Guide

        Good come back for Doc Sarvis. Love those people that talk through that portion of their body. If my Mother had not put her life savings and property in her kids names 5 years before she died there would have been little left in her estate to send on to her children. She was not rich but the government takes from everyone rich or poor.

        • EddieW

          When I was younger I envisioned the Estate tax as a set of gears, coming for you, you have no problem keeping ahead of them, they move slowly…every once in a whil you look around and here they come…you just leap away and keep going…45 – 50 years later, they much harder to stay ahead of, and eventually you can’t out run them, and they grind you to death..That’s not quite how it is…but it really seemed that way to me!!

      • EddieW

        I don’t think we need someone who has been in China for any length of time, as President…China is the GOAL!! For our Country…a country of slaves who cannot disobey their masters, as they will shut your chip down, and you can’t buy food or anything else…you have to crawl back on your belly and beg their forgiveness, and ask your chip to be reinstated!! It Is Coming!!! Please pray that we can keep our foundation!! Family Values and the Constitution!!!
        They…Congress, Pentagon, President are intent on destroying both!!!

        • Roy Major

          Interesting how both Democrats and Republicans get accused of the same things.

          • steeldude

            Because both partys are gutless and fall back on each other for support as they are both guilty of the same corruption of this great country .

        • Arthur

          The time has come for a long, hard look at our country. Get the Congress out of office, Get rid of Obama and all of his people, and start over with new elections, Congress gets paid !00K per year max, three asst’s. each and one office in district, one in D.C. Plus term limits, i term for Pres. six years, congress four years each, 2 terms ! No more Lobbyists and every individual who runs for office gets the same amount of money and can spend no more ! It is time for a simplistic Republic as planned by the Founding Fathers !

      • UnrepentantCurmudgeon

        The very wealthy are not generally concerned with the estate tax because they historically have employed a rolling generation-skipping trust, in which the corpus of the estate belongs to a trust that is renewed every other generation. So, none of the heirs ever actually own the estate itself, and hence it is never taxed. The only thing that would be subject to tax would be whatever estate the “heir” accumulated himself, and the very rich are generally pretty good at not being quite that stupid.

        The tax tends to fall hardest on the upper middle class (not really poor, not really rich), those who are land rich and cash poor, and not uncommonly had severe financial effects on them.

        • Mike

          The estate money has already been taxed, I don’t care if you are rich or poor – Where in the Constitution does it say the rich have to pay more. Don’t they have the right to be rich as long as the money is lagit?? I’m sorry if I want to give to the poor, I want to give to someone who is trying to get ahead not free loaders.

      • Tom Schafer

        Ted Kennedy wealth was put into a privately held corporation and at his death they just move the CEO or president to another name, and the corporation goes on. No taxes. You can do it too if you have the right lawyer.

    • Robert, Combat Seabee Vet. N.Y.

      Doc Sarvis,
      I guess you never heard of the inheritance tax? That is the “Estate Tax” And if you would slow down your blow hole, you would realize that YOUR estate has been taxed all it’s and YOU existence. YOU are the estate and everything YOU own. YOU paid income tax, YOU paid sales tax, You paid property tax, YOU paid all your life get it, now YOU want Your estate taxed after YOU die? Estate is a word which unfortunately people equate to the rich only, everything a person owns, rich or poor is known as “YOUR ESTATE”. YOUR family or whoever, as decreed by YOUR last will and testament, will have to pay taxes again on “YOUR ESTATE” that has been already taxed. and if a will is not presented, YOUR estate goes into PROBATE where it will be taxed immensely for the benefit of the state in which You lived, regardless if YOU have any heirs or not.. Not enough taxes for you yet, wait till the VAT comes. Will YOU see the light then? Probably never.
      By the waqy, the original concept of taxation disallowed the taxation of monies twice. Count how many times your money has been taxed already to get a handle on the problem and why our pockets are thin.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Robert, Combat Seabee Vet. N.Y.,
        YOU are referring to the many other taxes we, as citizens, pay to our government. O’Donnell’s PAC is referring to just the tax on those who have the most when they die.

        • TIME

          Ok Doc, So why do you work?
          Do you work to just keep a roof over your head?
          Do you work to be able to give to your Grandkids & your kids a little something to start a buisness with or just to aid them in buying a home perhaps?
          Do you work to insure that your Wife has money to live the rest of her life if you perhaps pass before her?
          Do you work to have a Trust for Charity set up in your name after you die?

          What do you work for?

          Do you work to give everything you worked for to a government that spends like drunk whores? Is that what you work for?
          Or is it to give what you earned to people who HATE you in other Countries?
          Or to give what you worked for to people in this country who have never even had a thought of getting a job?

          So what is it?

          You never seem to have anything but outright BULL Sh*t that you post, that is when your not acting like a pimp for the very people who would cut your balls off in a flash.

          • Doc Sarvis

            Time,

            You present a false choice, again.

            Your first paragraph of questions I answer is yes to all (roof, kids & grandkids, spousal security, charity, among others). I also work hard to give my fair share to the country that I love, the country that defends us, that puts in place and maintains the infrastructure that makes our lives better. I work for our country that gives to those in countries who have not been as extremely lucky as we in the United States are. I work to help our country help fellow citizens who have lost their job due to economics (not their performance).

            Why do you work; just for your own interests?

          • Average Joe

            Me thinks Doc missed part of the public announcement when he watched it…All Doc heard was “The mind is a terrible thing…help us stamp it out in our lifetime”….And boy did he jump on that bandwagon!

          • http://none Mike

            Doc, That would be just great if that was what they were doing with the money they collect in taxes. Its not though the very things you have nammed infrastructure and defence are the 2 lowest priorities, No insted we must spend this money on bailouts for the very people you and your liberal friends rail about. And lets just forget about social security. In their minds your not going to be around long enough to vote them into power prepetually anyway. So lets form that next big voteing block the illeagle. No they dont collect taxes any more for anything that they are supposed to. They just collect them for re-distrabution. Mike L.

            TIME,
            Common Sense … clearly and accurately stated… thanks.

    • http://na Lois

      Let me tell you it is not the “fat cats” who by the way pay 7% of ALL taxes in the USA, the estate tax is a killer for families who are left with a huge bill from the IRS when the head of the family dies.
      Who ever thought this one up, had to be progressive for whom there is never enough of our money.
      When a farmer, who has been struggling for all of his life dies and leave a large family farm, his children get screwed out of it by the “DEATH TAX” the family farm ends up getting broken up or sold entirely usually to a big multi national corporation in order to raise the money to pay the government. What the hell is up with that. I am making sure I give everything I own to my children long before I die so the greedy government cannot get their hands on it. When is it right for the government to take my money which by the way I have already paid taxes on, and decide where to spend it, usually on worthless trash who never worked a day in their lives but think they should have what I and others have worked like a mule all of our lives to get.
      Get a grip and get over your progressive hatred of anyone who has worked hard and sacrificed much to have what you do not.

      • http://PERSNNELLIBERTYDIGEST CYRIL

        Lois you aabsolutely right….

      • Rusticus

        Money is power. Does anyone here doubt that?
        We live in a propaganda state where the wealthy control ALL mainstream media. Most right wing-nuts are too self absorbed to see that.

        The media won’t tell you that getting rid of the estate tax is one more step in completing the change of this country from a constitutional democracy to a facist state run by a wealthy aristocracy (plutocracy).

        During their lifetimes, the super rich have spent millions on political campaigns and lobbyists so they could collect billions, tax free. The estate tax is the last chance to get these parasites to pay their fair share.

        When the estate tax (hopefully) goes back into affect, estates under 1,000,000 are exempt.

        Only the very wealthy are

        • canislupus

          Your answer is worthy of Karl Marx. It is totally derived of paranoid suspicion and class hatred.

        • jimeee

          I made a vow NEVER to argue with or feel sorry for stupid people. Why? Individuals like yourself aren’t worth talking to! If you had a wit, you’d still be a half-wit. If you don’t mind me asking how did you ever earn a high school diploma, or did you?

      • Karolyn

        My brothers and I never had to pay any kind of “death tax.” It was a small estate of about $50,000, and all we did was probate it. Does it depend on the state? I believe that is true. I was in NJ. My friend here in SC has set up a living trust so that they don’t have to pay so much when her father dies.

    • The Shrimper

      Frankly, Doc S……
      You are a typical class-envy moron. Explain to me how it is the right of the GOVERNMENT to ANY PERCENT of anyones estate, once they pass???. Because they pass a law that says so.. yes… but is it RIGHT or MORAL… ?? NO.!!!!!

      The estate tax is just another tool for the statists and leftist/socialists that infest all levels of this government to put an eventual end to individual property rights and ownership, and wealth BUILDING. It is not YOUR or anyone elses business what property owners do with their wealth or assets accumulated over their lifetime upon their passing. Get off it!

      As for Christine and Sarah….. I like it… primarily because it annoys and angers you petty little twits like you, that clearly recognize both these women as a threat and a force to be feared. Whatever they do to promote causes and issues that matter, I admire and support their efforts.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Sounds like someone is counting on a large inheritance.

        • http://yahoo Len Giddens Jr.

          So what if he is Doc? it’s no skin off your ponocoyo nose. It’s none of your business. That is your problem. You and yours does not have the brain to keep some of what you earn. You give it to the gov. to give to others that is below your rating.

        • tom343

          Re: Doc and inheritance. These people are neither misers nor mean-spirited. Their valid point? The decedent accrued this estate and paid taxes in the process. Why should those he designates as heirs have to pay taxes again? Is it because Doc feels people need to be coerced into sharing the sweat of their brows with those who through indolence or incompetence or design, don’t chose to better their own lot?

          • jimeee

            Doc if he really is a Doc is a perfect example of the leftist liberal who is all to willing to rearrange our lives into what he considers the ideal. Good for him, but my ideal and his are so far apart there is not chance in he$$ for a compromise.
            What this Nation requires at this moment in history is for 535 men and women of integrity, honor, and virtue who are all madly in love with Liberty to be elected to Congress. In a country of over 300 million WHY is that so hard?

      • Fish Guide

        I think the Sarah PAC and Christine PAC should use their money to fight every law that has been passed or they try to pass that does not follow the constitution.

      • Fish Guide

        They and many others will be a force to be feared because they will expose the government thugs for what they are and where they are.

        • Karolyn

          I think you give them too much credit, and i think they should use all their money for good like to feed the hungry.

          • Myron J. Poltroonian

            My Dear,
            You are free to spend any and all of the money you earn and/or raise in any way you (and the government) sees fit. However, it is not your business, nor is it your “right” to determine (via wishful “wishing”) how other people spend theirs. You and “Doc” are also free to send in whatever amount over and above what the tax tables indicate you “Owe” to your government of your own money, hard earned or not. ‘kay?

          • tom343

            But supporting the needy is charity. We should all practice charity. But it is not the government’s role to step into this. For one thing, it creates a social dependency that ruins the recipients. For another, the process doesn’t wipe out need; it usually just pours money onto political allies of those in power.

    • http://foundersrevolution.blogspot.com/ Patriot1776

      I don’t understand the idea that because you are wealthy you nolonger have a right to your labor? I don’t care if the estate tax only fell on one person! That person STILL HAS RIGHTS!!! But not according to you i guess.

    • barbm

      it doesn’t matter if a person is rich. taxes were already paid on the money. why should the wealthy be taxed twice? i only make $1060 on my social security on which i am unable to make ends meet. so, even though i’m old, have medical problems, and am feeling so tired these days it takes a monumental effort to put one foot in front of the other, i still have to find work to make it. yet, i’m not jealous of the wealthy. i’m proud of them for working hard and being successful americans. why are you so jealous, doc?

    • Gordon

      Doc you could not be more right than if I wrote that myself very good job buddy

    • 1minuteman

      how many time does your money have to be taxed before the progressives are happy. its beyond rediculous. why is it okay to tax the rich to death? because they were sucessfull? they happen to create the jobs we have and if we keep increasing their taxes i wont blame them when they leave the country and go to another country that needs jobs and dont tax the rich to death. a lot of rich people were poor but worked their butts off and became weathy. thats not a reason to punish them unless your a progressive like obama.

    • Mike

      Are you for real. The estate tax is about to be imposed on all of us. Do you listen or just talk. Oh……that’s right. You just listen to the liberal news media, that’s why you don’t know what’s going on. It’s been all over the real news nerd.

  • Claire

    Christine O’Donnell? Hmmm. Nope, I want a true statesman/stateswoman running for an office, not a Palin wannabe. The death of Elizabeth Edwards is sad. She endured enough crap in her life. Allow her to rest in peace.

    • TIME

      Claire,
      To be honest non of us really know much of anything about Christine O’Donnald, that is other than what little intel the Media posted about her.
      And don’t you find it just a tad strange that Coons who is a member of the “American Communist Party” that same media faild to make note of? And don’t you find it strange that Coons who raised tax’s to such crazy levels that people flooded out of the area, and yet not a word about any of that.

      Yet we know that Christine is a Witch, and that she is not the normal person of whom the media claims is normal.

      Odd I still don’t think that Branglina is normal, nor have I ever felt that sports are something that people should immerse themselfs in. So When my home pages comes up its like looking into the who’s who os class A idiots.

      As well my home page is MSN oddly all it creates is Class envy daily, with articals on who’s got the most Toys, Biggest homes, had the most sex, Who did what on the red carrpet, and what sports team is best. Who has been able to get away with what.”Thats whats noted as Normal.”

      So how do we really know what a “Good Statesman” is?
      Are we to grade them by the actions we see unfold daily, if so we are in a world of crap stew. Most of these people I wouldn’t let them clean up after my dogs, nor trust them to do so.

      As far as trust, most who’s presence is in YOUR face daily I would rather see lined up next to the hangmans tree, why?
      They are doing everything in thier power to destroy this nation, by their actions alone.
      Anyone who has even a mild amount of history backround can see that if something fails you don’t need to make a bigger and more massive case of doing it the same way over and over again and expect a differant result.

      To be frank about it, I can name over 300 Congress persons of who I find repugnant, at least 50 Senators who fall in that cup of crap stew.

      So I come back to if we have no choice and the media is telling you that someone is of no value, {then my moneys on who the media claims is no good.}
      I have made a very good living on speculation. But I do have an advantage over most I get my due Diligance in before I make a call. To date I have only made a few mistakes, and they cost me very little in the big picture. On the other hand 97.9% I have hit home runs.

      So my average is 100% better than Congress.

      • Claire

        TIME– I am inclined to think a good “statesman” is a thing of the past. As far as the media is concerned, I do not believe everything I hear–they are all biased in one way or another. I try to make up my own mind about people–their mannerisms, the way they speak, the way they conduct themselves during an interview, their body language, and the words they speak. If goofy stuff (over the top comments and constant bashing of their opponent) comes out of their mouths, the red flags pop up in my mind. I want to hear facts, not “skirting” around the issues. I want to “hear” what they will do if elected, I want to hear exactly what they think and will DO about the illegals, and the list goes on. I don’t think there is time for all the BS that is being spouted—in fact, time is of the essence.

          Claire, Unfortunatly what they say and what they do usually turns out to be 2 diffrent things.The only real way to know is how they vote on issues. Unfortunatly todays media has a tendancy to destroy an honest conservitive before they ever get the chance to vote on anything.Untill we get the media out of both sides of an issue with canidates.We may never get to the truth. Opinion pices on both sides of the isle have a tendancy to mask a canidate. Return to open debates and have the audience particapate. This allows questions the canidates might not have pre prepared comments for.Wouldent it have been beautiful to have seen Obama have to answer a question about Rev. Wright by a normal citizen?Not have accomplises in the media cover it for him. Or on the other side of the isle scream and shout about his association with him.Somewhere in the middle of that lay the truth about it we will never know though because its been distorted and covered up. Mike L.

          • Claire

            Mike: When I was a child my Mother took me and my sisters to Sandridge Baptist Church every Sunday. Back then people referred to us as “drowning Baptists” because we were baptized in the Illinois River. Talk about a dunking! Believe me, I thought I was going to drown! We would walk the 2 miles to get to church–it was located right beside the country school that I attended. I can remember that church and the tent revivals–all the hollering, shouting, and singing while Praising God. It was pure fire and brimstone. Change your ways or be damned forever. In other towns, I can also remember the Black churches, a lot of hollering, shouting and singing there, too, but they were praising God. I am not “making fun” –I am only stressing a point. I grew up with the hollering and shouting in church, so it does not bother me one bit. Some of this still continues. Let them holler, shout, sing and praise God. Back then I never heard any pastor badmouth the United States. And I don’t hear it now.
            Regarding Obama and Rev. Wright, I will say that I was appalled that Wright said what he did. And I am appalled that Obama listened to the idiot. I am not finding excuses for Obama, but perhaps he is/was used to this sort of preaching. But I draw the line when someone–pastor or otherwise–says G– D— America.

          • Claire

            Mike– I apologize, I did not answer completely. Yes, open discussion is the only way–I don’t want to hear speeches all the time, I want to ASK them questions in front of everybody. I want to see how they react–will they stumble around, hem and haw or will they answer forcefully, confidently and truthfully or will they lie and tiptoe around facts?

            Claire, I was dunked in the local lake here in Tn. :) Yes I ment that Wright comment just as one example.I would have liked to seen just one honest answer.We wont get thoes with the current system though. These people have a pre prepared agenda. They have all the questions days in advance. The teleprompter has all the pre prepared notes and answers. We the people get a dog and pony show for our benifit. Mike L.

          • Claire

            Mike–You are correct. They have everything prearranged. Plus the fact that during the campaign of 2008, some of the candidates were not asked as many questions as the co-called “popular” candidates were. I thought that McCain/Palin and Obama/Biden got the most coverage. The other candidates got next to nothing including Ron Paul. Very unfair.

            Claire, I think Pual was kept out intentonaly. Back during the time that Ross Periot ran as an independent he very nearly won the election by being included in debates. This scared both parties into pushing out anyone who would run as a third party of any type. Any time you put in an unknown factor into these debates 3rd party cannadates have a tendancy to do better. Mainly because they answer honestly. Mike L.

  • Robert, Combat Seabee Vet. N.Y.

    It’s good to see that Christine O’Donnell hasn’t given up on the fight. There are many battles that are won because of those that are behind the front lines, not directly in the line of fire.
    I commend Christine O’Donnell for her perservering tenacity. We need people to keep issues in the forefront so they can’t be slipped surreptitiously past the American people.

    If you know the enemy
    and you know yourself,
    you need not fear the results
    of a hundred battles.

    If you know yourself
    but not your enemy,
    for every victory gained
    you will also suffer a defeat.

    If you know neither
    your enemy or yourself,
    you will succumb in every battle.

    The inability to pass on wealth and property to your heirs is a cornerstone of Marxist philosophy. Of all the weapons the left has at it’s disposal is class envy. It pits those too stupid or too lazy to succeed against those who aren’t. What you have to leave whom ever you wish your business, your home, your possesions, or your bak account is after tax money that has already been taxed. What you do with it is not anyones damn business, especially the gvts. Under estate taxes the gvt. puts a high value on your land by acre. it kills the family farms. Another example; i know a man who inherited (2) inner-city homes left him by his mother. She lived in one and rented the other.

      Keep in mind that Marxists and Fascists have values in common. one of them is the estate tax.

  • http://gunner689 gunner689

    The inability to pass on wealth and property to your heirs is a cornerstone of Marxist philosophy. Of all the weapons the left has at it’s disposal is class envy. It pits those too stupid or too lazy to succeed against those who aren’t. What you have to leave whom ever you wish your business, your home, your possesions, or your bak account is after tax money that has already been taxed. What you do with it is not anyones damn business, especially the gvts. Under estate taxes the gvt. puts a high value on your land by acre. it kills the family farms. Another example; i know a man who inherited (2) inner-city homes left him by his mother. She lived in one and rented the other. He had to sell one of them to pay the estate tax and then was taxed on the sale. God Bless and Save America.

    • Robert, Combat Seabee Vet. N.Y.

      Hey Gunner 689,
      And what is the gov’t going to do with this tax revenue that they collect, REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH in the form of ENTITLEMENTS. I for one am sick of this shit. My hard earned money is for me, not the lazy, and charity starts in the home, NOT THE GOV’T.WTF happened to the American Dream, it turned into a nightmare.
      And as for the dream act, there’s another entitlement program again for the democratic voter base. They no as I was informed call illgal immigrant, undocumented persons, that’s like calling a drug dealer an unlicensed pharmacist!! Sick of the truth of this liberal agenda being hidden behind the miniker of Progreesive, it is actually the american communist party under another name and it has been outed, that’s why they are getting their ass shellacked.

        • Lewis Munn

          There are quite a few differences, IF you choose to really read what the Bible tells of Jesus and his philosophy and his instructions to his followers.

          For one thing, He said His Kingdom is not of this world; for the Marxist their kingdom most definitely is of this world. And for power and rigid control in this world.

          Back up, read the New Testament in the Bible thoroughly 3 or 4 times so you know what Jesus really said, and did, and how it will be distorted in later times.

          If you do this honestly, I do not think you will be able to make the same statements you did, honestly. But if you go by hearsay of the ones who really are not Christians, CINOs, you can come up with distortions like you did here.

          Did you know Jesus predicted this sort of thing, and gave us a litmus test to determine real Christians from the CINO’s? Check it out!

    • nottirb

      I think we might want to look at this from a slightly different angle.
      How can you register your property. Well theres commercial and residential.
      What happened to private property ???
      Resident means alien Under the Trading with the Enemy Act Roosevelt invoked the Alien Enemy status on US citizens.
      Are you a US citizen ??? Both the IRS and most state tax codes described the US as the District of Columbia NOT the several states. or are you an American (or national)
      What would happen if people would not register ther property ?

      US was incoporated in DC in 1871
      Most States including PA name their head as the Crown of England and operate under what’s called (PA Rules of Court) The King’s Bench Exchequer Court.

      The fact that we pay inherritance taxes comes from registering as a corporation 15 PaCSA 5301-5310) A coporations name is shown IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Also could be a POW , nom de guerre, or dead person

      This is how they get around the Corruption of blood (making a name uninheritable, by itself and therefore taxable

  • eddie47d

    Christine is throwing things out there to see if they will stick with her threesome comment.Exactly what Sarah has done. At least Sarah is in Haiti today scoping out the situation. It could be an eye opener for her. Even with the downturn most of us are very lucky to live in America instead of the daily chaos of Haiti. The inheritance tax seems rather extreme and should be lowered. You have to remember that the person who earned that money or property is deceased.The persons who will inherit that money did not earn any of that wealth. They are going to receive something they did not work for;so from that point of view I see nothing wrong with some level of inheritance tax.

    • newspooner

      Maybe the person(s) who inherit someone’s estate did not earn it. BUT NEITHER DID THE GOVERNMENT!!! And since the assets in the estate had already been taxed when they were earned, an estate or inheritance tax is double taxation of the worst kind.

      TAXES = THEFT

        They accumulated all that money by manipulating a system to which they contributed nothing. They benefited from all the infrastructure built with the money of American citizens while these rich parasites did their best to see to it that they didn’t have to pay for not only the improvement of that system but even for the maintenance of the system that served them so well.

        Every year, the distance between rich and poor in the US gets larger and our ranking in education and all quality of life issues keeps dropping relative to other industrialized countries.

        While other countries are eating our lunch economically, all you can think about is making misers happy.

        • Vigilant

          You forgot to add: “Workers of the World, Unite!”

          What a load of baldfaced lies!

          • Karolyn

            Vigilant “Every year, the distance between rich and poor in the US gets larger and our ranking in education …keeps dropping relative to other industrialized countries.” That is not lies. Did you see the US ranking in the recent math stats? Way below China, Malaysia, and other primarily asian countries other than Finland.

          • Vigilant

            Karolyn,

            My discontent with the posting was related to the rich-hating screed so common to the socialists. Blaming the rich for our shortcomings in education is ludicrous.

            I certainly have no beef with you on education. That, as a matter of fact, is probably my biggest pet peeve.

            I know you are a champion of unions, but it’s got to be said that it has been the teacher’s unions who have substantially contributed to the poor quality of education in this country.

            Milton Friedman, interviewed by Larry Arnn for Hillsdale College, once said “The president of the National Education Association was once asked when his union was going to do something about students. He replied that when the students became members of the union, the union would take care of them. And that was a correct answer. Why? His responsibility as president of the NEA was to serve the members of his union, not to serve public purposes.

            “I give him credit: The trade union has been very effective in serving its members. However, in the process, they’ve destroyed American education. But you see, education isn’t the union’s function. It’s our fault for allowing the union to pursue its agenda.

            “Consider this fact: There are two areas in the United States that suffer from the same disease—education is one and health care is the other. They both suffer from the disease that takes a system that should be bottom-up and converts it into a system that is top-down. Education is a simple case. It isn’t the public purpose to build brick schools and have students taught there. The public purpose is to provide education.

            “Think of it this way: If you want to subsidize the production of a product, there are two ways you can do it. You can subsidize the producer or you can subsidize the consumer. In education, we subsidize the producer—the school. If you subsidize the student instead—the consumer—you will have competition. The student could choose the school he attends and that would force schools to improve and to meet the demands of their students.”
            .

          • Karolyn

            Vigilant – I do agree with you. I am not a lover of unions per se. I have seen them do much good, and I really am not that up on the mechanics other than what I’ve read here. However, I agree that the teachers union rewards even the worst teachers through tenure. I saw a piece on that movie on education (can’t remember the name) on Oprah, I believe. It really is a damn shame. Here in SC the picture is pretty bleak. I was just at a meeting yesterday where our state senator talked about the cuts that are coming in education because our state budget is so bad. I have a friend with 2 kids in school; and she is constantly being bombarded with stuff to buy or sell. Far cry from when I was a kid.

          • Lewis Munn

            Vigilant, Karolyn,

            I agree with what you are saying, tho not with the system here not letting me reply after.

            Hillsdale College has a magazine, free, “Imprimis”, that has a lot of good masterial from many sources on economics, and freedom for our citiens in General.

            Those who really love freedom ought to get a free subscription to read what many people have to say currently.

            And you should be aware how the US Government has consistently attacked the school for what they teach and believe in.

        • Lewis Munn

          Rusticus,

          You then believe that when a person dies the government should get all he owned, and his family nothing? That seems to be the logical extention of what you say.

          Or does your envy of those who do well economically blind you to the consequences of your thinking, that all a deceased person has should really go to the government?

          I presume you would likewise demand that all the rich folks in the government also have their money and property confiscated when they die? Or would you exempt them? And maybe yourself too?

          I think a nation that penalizes people for what they are able to do for themselves and so for others is going to fall quickly, a prey to unbridled envy!

          We will all be equal when we all have nothing. Nothing to live for. Or with. Dead. And then whose shall the money be?

    • Bill

      Eddie, tell me something. Do you believe that a person has a right to do whatever with anything that he /she has accumulated? yes or no. None of this bullshit of well if this or if that. You either believe the person has a right or they don’t. Even if you believe it “only a little bit” opens it up to “adjustments” when and where and how much in the future. If someone left you an inheritance they left it to you and you alone. If you want to give it to the government, go ahead but to avocate that everyone should be required to give their property away is the politics of force to think otherwise is the politics of liberty. Which are you for? If it is the politics of force then that puts you in in direct conflict with people like me who will go to war with the likes of a dictator.

  • Bob Wire

    “So … let’s cut the spending. And when we get it all cut, then we stop all programs that we simply do not have the money for such as “free” health care for everyone.”

    Exactly, cut from the same cloth and will arrive at the same end.

    • Rusticus

      There is no such thing as “free” health care. There IS welfare for health insurance companies.

      If you really want to cut expenses, cut the budget of the War Department which is not only the worst polluter in the world but which is sucking all the money out of this country while producing nothing of value.

      • Vigilant

        “War Department?” That title went out with Truman.

  • Frank D. Harrisson

    Christie, I saw that debate with Coons on the subject of “Separation of Church and State”. Well I have news for Coons. He is only part correct and he wrongly follows the interpretation that dates back to the 1960′s. The First Amendment on the Separation of Church and State states that the government cannot sponsor a state religion such as the Church of England where the reigning monarch is the head of the church. Now here is the catch, the First Amendment also guarantees Freedom of Speech and it guarantees that it can be said anywhere and at any time. There is nothing in the Constitution that says that one cannot have open prayer or bible reading or holiday ornamentation in any government building including schools. From colonial days and up until the 1960′s this was the standard practice and sanctioned by our forefathers. We are a Judea/Christian nation and uphold our truths, moors, and morals under the guidance of Providence and if anyone is offended by this let them either accept it or go elsewhere.

            doc, PLEASE tell me whom they polled. i think i’m the only person i know who has a land line. they do NOT call cell phones, so they’re limited in whom they can call. neither i nor anybody i know has been polled either. even my legal hispanic friends are against any type of amnesty. that would be rewarding them for breaking our laws and would allow them to go to the head of the line when many have been waiting for years to come here legally. karolyn, quit playing the pity card. they get to pay in state tuition in texas, so they get a better deal than any american who would like to go to college here. if the kids are unhappy, they should balme their criminal parents. yes, karolyn, they are criminals thus the illegal part of illegal alien. i’m against even giving them a chance to go home, get in line, and apply for citizenship. if you broke our laws by sneaking across our border like a thief in the night to steal our milk and honey, you should not be given a chance to come back. if you are a citizen convicted of a felony, you lose your right to own a firearm or vote ever again. why should the illegal criminals get more than the legal ones get? you must not live in a border state, or you’d be sick to death of having to learn a foreign language in ordert to communicate with half the people living in your state.

    Put the issue in a more realistic perspective. Think of the estate tax as easy money for the government in the form of an ENTITLEMENT for the sole benefit of government. Who do these useless geekoids think they are?
    Isn’t it enough for the government to DICTATE to the American people who owes what, how much and why? These are the same people who keep more than 12 sets of books (you and I get ONE set of books). They have no reason to operate on a strict budget. They get midnight pay raises, and the DARE to claim to be leaders who can be trusted to the ‘right’ thing. BARF!
    Rich folks will always take care of themselves. They’ve had access to foundations for many years. They use that money to perpetuate social engineering agendas. They buy politicians. Some dare pretend to whiz and moan about paying too much in taxes.
    I don’t hold all rich people in contempt just because they’re rich. However, when they’re politicians who went to Washington as mere schlubs fresh off the street (and they tend to leave office filthy RICH) I have no earthly use for them – ESPECIALLY when their job has nothing to do with getting rich while in office. Please, folks, when politicians whiz and moan about “the rich” not paying enough in taxes, politicians need to be at the TOP of that list of social pariahs. SOAK THE ELECTED! Give them reasons to get real jobs and keep their sorry arses OUT of Washington. Treat criminals like the criminals they are. Pull your head(s) out of your posterior(s), America.

In times of crisis or discontent they can convince gullible populations that they have the solutions to make things better. After these facists/socialists were elected and the Germans & Russians suffered under their rule, it was too late for them to stop the holocausts.

    The problem with the estate tax is that it taxes what has already been taxed. Property, through multiple years of property tax, money which has already been taxed through income tax, capitalngains etc. The govt already waste enough of the tax payers money. To require tax money on assets already taxed through out the life of the citizen is not only unconstitutional but unconscionable. Doc your free to pay more tax upon your death, leave your whole estate to the govt but dont enforce it on me and mine. By taking care of my own that frees the govt up to take care of others who might really need help.

    http://www.wsbtv.com/news/25762604/detail.html
    US State Department builds mosques in 27 countries: http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/27003

    Posted: 3:57 pm EST November 11, 2010

    WASHINGTON, D.C — A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas. This investment has received criticism as the United States makes an effort to slash nearly $4 trillion in government spending.

    Plenty of outrage following the announcement made Thursday afternoon by a government commission that suggested huge cuts to the budget, including eliminating the interest education for home mortgage.

    This juxtaposed with United States investing millions to refurbish mosques as a good-will effort in Muslim countries has upset many taxpayer groups.

    The Channel 2 Action News investigation found a 1,300-year-old Egyptian mosque that was almost flooded by contaminated sewer water that is one of many ancient Cairo mosques and churches that were saved from destruction by the U.S. taxpayers.

    This is part of a $770 million program to rebuild Cairo’s sewer system, paid for by the U.S. State Department’s USAID program. “We are spending money we don’t have. This is all on a gigantic credit card right now,” said Jared Thomas, a taxpayer advocate.

    Millions more dollars have been sent to places like Cyprus.

    The State Department displays before and after pictures of mosques refurbished with U.S. tax dollars. “I think it is very hard to explain to the American taxpayer right now whose having an extraordinary time paying bills and making ends meet that this is why we took this out of your paycheck, so we can fund this,” said Thomas.

    The State Department declined a Channel 2 Action News request for an interview.

    We wanted to ask why are we using tax dollars to refurbish religious buildings overseas. The State Department did send Channel Two Action News an e-mail saying that they are fighting Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders.

    Egyptian-American human rights activist Nonie Darwish told Channel 2 Action News anchor Justin Farmer that trying to buy respect in the Middle East only shows our weakness. “This part of the world has a lot of respect for power and America is not showing its power, it’s showing its appeasement.

    They are laughing all the way to the bank,” said Darwish.

    Darwish was born in Egypt and is now a former Muslim.

    Darwish told Farmer that she moved to America and has written several books critical of radical Islam. Darwish said that most of the mosques in Egypt are run by extremists who have ordered former Muslims like herself to be killed. “We are rebuilding mosques to support the radicals, not to support the moderates.

    We are building mosques to issue fatwas of death against people like me,” said Darwish.

    Your tax dollars also fund computers and mosques in places like Tajikistan and Mali.

    At an ancient mud brick mosque in Mali, the State Department has provided Internet service and computer equipment to local imams.

    Taxpayer watchdogs wonder how the State Department can explain paying for Internet service while Americans struggle through the worst recession in decades.

    “To the average person who has probably seen their paycheck shrink and not grow, this could be an insult to them,” said Pete Sepp, President of the National Taxpayers Association.

    With radical websites inciting violence and extremism worldwide, there are concerns that the taxpayer-funded Internet service could be misused. “That is not the job of the U.S. because giving them Internet access to imams and Muslim preachers who hate America,” said Darwish.

    Critics say that it is time to review funding for all federal programs that do not directly benefit taxpayers. “We are spending money we don’t have and certainly we can cut items like this,” said Thomas.

    The Deficit Commission announced it would look at slowing the growth of foreign aid. Channel 2 Action News is not aware if there will be cuts in this particular U.S Aid program.”

      Two things would really help us out in the areas of credibility and financially; a) do away with the State Department, and b) cut out everything in the federal budget that is not specifically authorized by the Constitution!

    WHEN KRUCHEV STOOD IN THE UN AND SLAMMED HIS SHOE ON THE PODIUM, HE SAID (WE WILL TAKE YOU OVER FROM THE INSIDE WITHOUT FIREING A SHOT) OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT, WELL OBAMA IS DOING JUST WHAT HE SAID,
    TAKING US OVER BY EXECUTIVE ORDER AND USING CZARS ( A VERY DESPISED RUSSIAN WORD) WITHOUT REGARD TO WHAT THE AMERICAN VOTERS WANT OR NEED.

    WHILE IN THE NAVY

    I DIDN’T SERVE 20 YEARS IN THE ARMPITS OF THE WORLD FOR SOME RAGHEAD
    TO BE IN HIS POSITION WITH ALL THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE.
    ALSO, IMHO NEITHER PARTY HAS MY SUPPORT,(NOT THAT THEY CARE) THE DEMOCRATS ARE LEFTIST, THE REPUBLICANS ARE TOO FAR RIGHT
    AND ABORTION OR RIGHT TO LIFE SHOULD NOT BE IN EITHER PARTY’S PLANK, NOR SHOULD THEY BE IN ANY JUDICIAL FORMAT.

    IN 2008 NEITHER PARTY HAD ANYONE I WANTED IN POWER, TOO LEFT OR TOO OLD.
    LET’S HOPE WE HAVE SOME BETTER CHOICES IN 2012.

      If you haven’t done so, I suggest you begin with reading our July 4, 1776 Unanimous Declaration of Independence before you open your mouth again.

    jesse, thanks for your service I have several children and neices and newphews in the military, thank you foryour service. Over the years I have never seen anyone too far right, seen plenty of queer loving whimps and plenty of rinos of “conservative democrats” who claim to be repulicans. But never any real body that is too far right. We fight like whimps because we don’t fight to win, just bloch the enemy a little bit and play patty cake with the damn goat abusing rag head perverts. These pervert ideological freaks are like praire dogs, breed like rats and have not a nano worth of any kind. Kill them til they sue for peace and treat them like Black Jack Pershing did, and they will settle down for 50 years.

    What about KKK? Or Nazis? The human rights people were called far left in the 1960s.

    Jesse, thanks for your service also.
    We have to get Obama out!!!!!!!!
    I worked 46 1/2 years for the same company; health care was included as part of my wages – on 12/31/2010 – I lost it all for me and my husband. Buy new at 2-3 times the cost and not all prescriptions covered. Thanks to Obama and his failures; did nothing but build his bloated gov and blame Bush, 2nd year, forced Obamacare on us. And, now he’s recruiting illegals for votes. He is a traitor, lies all the time and worse. I detest him. My son has been out of work for 14 mos, losing his home. Obama wants it this way. Sickening.
