Recently, I received three letters from the InFernal Revenue Service. They were supposed to be answering my letter(s) to them from two months ago. They did not answer my letters but sent THREE IDENTICAL LETTERS to me, with “facts” and figures that are, to say it as nicely as I can, “bogus”. My running battle with the InFernal Revenue Service (and that’s service, like what a bull does to a cow) goes back at least a decade, and they have not answered my questions yet! I have two Federal tax liens against me, and here’s the interesting part: one is on a piece of property that doesn’t exist, in a county in which I’ve never lived, and the other is on property that I don’t own, in a county that I HAVE lived in! People, this agency is one that simply does not need to exist. There ARE other means of collecting taxes without having a gaggle of idiots collecting lots of money for work they don’t do…or do in a shoddy manner.
Maybe you heard about this, and maybe you didn’t…if you listen to certain “news outlets” it may have been shoved under the rug. There’s a lot of that going around these days. It seems that the Associated Press, since I can remember, has always been a reliable news reporting agency, but no so much anymore. Ever since President Trump coined the phrase “fake news” it’s been shown to be happening more and more…or perhaps it’s just that the REAL news outlets are putting out the stories. At any rate, the AP ran a story that claimed Steve Bannon, the fiery Trump ally and Breitbart News chairman, was distancing himself from the Roy Moore campaign in Alabama.
“Where’s Bannon? Moore booster absent in Alabama,” declared the AP piece filed by reporter Tom Beaumont. The story was distributed to countless AP wire service subscribers and ran all around the country. “Bannon hasn’t yanked his support for Moore, but if he’s standing by him, it’s at a distance,” Beaumont’s AP piece stated. Wow, strong words, those, and if they’re true, it could be a scoop for the AP. Alas and alack, it wasn’t a scoop because, SURPRISE, it wasn’t true! “Associates say he has no plans to campaign in the state before the Dec. 12 election. Meanwhile, his public statements have gone from glowing endorsements of Moore to broadsides against Democratic contender Doug Jones,” the report continued. So, what’s the problem? Almost everything in the piece was untrue, which could have been verified by any barely-competent journalist. Other places had investigated and found the AP story to be a lie…whoops!
Back in October, while a guest on CNN’s State of the Union show, Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown said, “I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist and Stephen Miller seems to be. And I know that studies have shown that they have their allies sprinkled around the White House.” He went on to say, “You know what’s really interesting about this? When the president attacks people like that, he almost never calls them by name.” He added, “I would say it’s sad, it’s worse than sad, that the president engages in this kind of name calling without the name and tries to demean people that way and gets in these fights.” Folks, if Trump is speaking somewhere, I try to watch, and if he tweets something I try to read it. From my standpoint, he does name names and “calls ‘em like he sees ‘em” and that’s fine with me. When I was a younger man, and braver than I had a right to be, it was my habit to call out people and ask them to say something to my face…and sometimes that was disastrous, but it showed that, if there was something to be said, it had to be face to face.
Trending: Stop being an anti-Trump Chump
Have you looked at someone lately and thought to yourself, “Is that a man or a woman?”? It may, on the surface, be confusing but unless I’m understanding what DNA is, you should be able to look in your underpants and tell right away what you are. DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information. The fundamental and distinctive characteristics or qualities of someone or something, especially when regarded as unchangeable. That brings me to my next gripe, which is that you may(if you are one of the Libtards) self-identify as a different gender on any given day or, without benefit of surgery, declare yourself to be the other sex. Transgender, to me, means that a person is going through a physical, surgical change of gender…and that person should not be passing themselves off as something other than what they were to start. Gavin Hubbard, who won records as a male weightlifter, claims to have transitioned to being a woman. Now, competing as Laurel Hubbard in his native New Zealand, he’s causing controversy by beating natural born female competitors. Hubbard has now been approved to compete as a woman by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and is set to compete in the Commonwealth Games, a competition that funnels competitors toward the Olympics. The IOC has proclaimed that Hubbard qualifies as a female competitor because of “acceptable” levels of testosterone.
