Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil? – Ayn Rand

On Christmas day, a cousin of mine, in his 20s, an affable, liberal-minded guy who works in the movie industry and voted for Zero, stunningly admitted: “I get more conservative every time I look at what the government takes from my paycheck.”

My young cousin, and many more like him, are about to become even more self-aware this year … as they watch their paychecks evaporate like a drop of water spilled in the Sahara. That’s because the rats crawling around the District of Criminals didn’t renew the Bush tax cuts, effectively making this the first business week of The Year Your Ass Will Be Taxed. In other words, my dear already overtaxed friends, the Congresscriminals, on behalf of the One who promised that families making less than $250,000 would NOT see a tax increase in any form, just raised your bloody taxes.

You’d be hard-pressed, however, to find someone in the general public who knows about this sort of thing because, you know, the MSM was too busy helping Congress pass healthcare deform bills this fall to report much about “evil” tax cuts. But you can bet that extra $13 we’re all getting in our paychecks each week from the stimulus will still be a tremendous help this year to pay for … oh, I don’t know … another channel on DirecTV to divert us from worrying about the nation’s economic “recovery.”

(BTW: if you are planning to die, this will be the year to do it for free. Don’t you just love the benevolence of our dear caretakers?)

Really, I don’t see how any American citizen can still support 99.9 percent of Congress or the pResident. Everywhere you turn, there’s another tax and another “mandate” and another example of waste from every level of government. For instance, did you know that while your money continues to be flushed down the Fannie and Freddie toilet, if you live in the District of Criminals you now get to pay for each plastic shopping bag you use? You can bet plastic bag fever will be spreading to local governments everywhere this year because, you know, the only good ideas now come from Washington … or the U.N.

It’s all for the public good, anyway. After all, social re-engineering did wonders last century for the Soviet Union, Europe, and most of South America and Asia. Hey, if you feel guilty about living in the best country in the world, why not destroy it and lower yourself to everyone else’s standards?

All of which brings us here.

I know I’m going to start sounding like a broken record soon, but I will say this early and often in 2010 until we right this sinking ship:

In 2009, The Year of Obamafail, the legislative and executive branches of the federal government ignored millions of us who pounded on their doors and told them to take their healthcare policy and their carbon tax policies and their bailouts and their pork-barrel spending and their nationalization of just about every American business except the porn industry and … shove it all up their a**es.

At this point, I’d say that if you don’t feel revulsion towards your Congresscriminal, from either loser party – the looters who take more and more from you to help Zero accomplish his social revolution and spread your wealth among the moochers (those who expect to live off the government) – if their actions don’t make you want to hang every last one by their genitals until they give your freedom back to you, you’re either brain dead or clinically insane, in which case, I’d recommend you jam a pistol in your mouth and cock the hammer and pull the trigger and leave the world to those of us who do the heavy lifting and have our minds right and will resolve to vote these bastards out of office, every last one.
