A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.
… And, by “backdoor reparations” I don’t mean titularly White queers and trannies going the mandingo route. No, I mean sneaking reparations – i.e., the theft of Whites’ money in the name of Social Justice – in through the backdoor and trying to hide what they actually are through creative use of dog-whistles.
Specifically, Biden and Co., especially the blacktivist they appointed as acting FHFA Director after firing the incumbent Director for the sole reason of being a White man and, therefor, not representing this administration’s values, have decided that responsible people with decent credit scores, most of whom are White, will be forced to pay extra on their mortgages in order subsidize the mortgages of loan seekers with poor credit, most of whom are Black.
And yes, People; this went into effect a week ago on May 1, 2023, though I believe good, worthwhile people won’t begin feeling the pain for a while as they setup the mechanisms to enforce these reparations.
A pair of images of Cleopatra VII Philopato, one from mid-1st Century Rome and another from Netflix’s 2023 rewrite of history in which they try to convince the world that the last scion of the rather heavily inbred – something they picked up from the native Egyptians – Macedonian Ptolemaic dynasty, which we have the entire bloodline of recorded, was somehow, someway a Black.
Hell! In the promo image shown above, they even darkened the actress’ skin!
I guess they figure that, if they can’t eradicate White history, they’ll just steal it and blackwash it. I guess that makes a certain level of sense though since they’ve little enough recorded history of their own and what they do have is hard to sanitize for a modern audience and to fit with their narrative of being the oppressed rather than oppressors and slavers or worse, being allies and trading partners with European nations.
Despite the GOP’s scaremongering – it is election season, after all – the provisions with the Dems’ Orwellianly named Inflation Reduction Act to grant the IRS nearly $80 billion in new funding in order to, among other things, hire 87,000 new employees, won’t dramatically effect anyone in the next few years. Many of these “new hires” will simply be replacements for the current staff, approximately half of whom are at or approaching retirement age.
But, there’s no more truth or accuracy in the Dems’ claims that the middle-class and small businesses won’t experience greater scrutiny and/or audits. When the stated goal of increasing the IRS’ budget is to increase collections by $204 billion, you can be sure that the IRS is going to target anyone and everyone that they can. You can also be sure that the “Billionaires” and “Megacorporations,” most or all of whom have more and better tax attorneys than the IRS ever will, won’t be the IRS’ primary targets or the major sources of that $204 billion in extra tax collections.
Understand that approximately 50% of the largest corporations in America are already audited each year. Admittedly though, this is down from 100% of them during the Obama Regime. And yet, the Dems want to increase tax collection by $204 billion.
The largest corporations in the United States with over $20 billion of assets have had their rate of audits go from nearly 100% to 50%. Among wealthy individuals who had a positive income of a million dollars or more, the audit rate fell from 8.4% in 2010 to 2.4% in 2019.
So, that fairly massive increase in tax collections is going to have to come from somewhere and somebody else. And it’s not going to be just the 1% either, since returning to Obama era audit rates for all individuals making over $400,000 would generate only 28%, or $9.9 billion of that expected $204 billion. And, even if the IRS increased audit rates 30x for taxpayers making over $400,000 and to a 100% audit rate upon taxpayers with incomes over $10 million, this would only raise to approximately $28 billion of it.
No, the IRS has a long and ongoing to this very day history of targeting the poor’s – those with $25K or less in income – tax returns for audits at a rate of 5x that of all other groups combined. I would expect that this rate would normalize somewhat… because the rates of audits will dramatically increase for those making between $26K – $200k per year and for most small-to-mid sized businesses, bringing them closer to what the poor suffer from.
It’s simple math and pragmatism. The IRS wants or needs to show increased collection and the poor and the middle-class through the 2%’ers are the ones without the resources to combat the IRS. And, there’s 100s of millions more of us. Of course we’re the ones who will be targeted by the IRS the most overall.
So yeah, the Democrats’ junkyard dog, the IRS won’t bite many now. But, it will most likely do so in 2026 and 2027 if it isn’t put down before then.
Honestly, this is one of the truest statements and memes ever made. It is also one that every single one of Americans’ domestic and racial enemies will deride. Any time anything in the government tries to tell an American that they’re taxing that the government can spend their money better and/or more efficiently than that American can is not just a their, but a liar as well.
But there’s two things to remember about this:
The first is that the government almost never tries to efficient in their spending. Their goal is to continue to need tax monies and to have work to do so as to keep their jobs. Any sort of efficient use of Americans’ tax money is literally contraindicated but it would result in projects being finished, goals being achieved, and, hence, the government agencies or departments within those agencies being reduced or eliminated.
The second is that our domestic enemies are very much not interested in efficiency. They need ongoing, unresolved issues to feed their need for “progress.” They also aren’t really interested in positives outcomes for their projects and “protected” trait-bearers. They are far, far, far more focused on tearing Americans down – reducing our privilege – than raising their people up.
Fishing, it’s a thing – a great thing and a great thing to love. Well, to the sane people among us at least; others, not so much. Great or not though, it underscores a lot of the key differences in outlook between the two primary ideologies in the US.
