The 16th amendment more or less declares that all of our income is the property of the Federal government. Any amount they let us keep is the result of the benevolence of Congress. The Courts have ruled as such throughout the history of the income tax. This includes any income, from gifts to fringe benefits. If your employer pays for a business lunch, the Federal government can tax you for 100% of your lunch if they so desire. There are of course loopholes and all sorts of deductions and write offs. But those are all by the grace of Congress. According to the Courts and the 16th amendment Congress doesn’t have to write any deductions into law. They’re entitled to everything.

Correct!

Thanks to the Court, 16th amendment, if Liberal Obama wants to confiscate money all he has to do is TAX them!!!

Tax guns 2,000% their sales price and you will get rid of the second amendment in a single executive order!!!

Will Liberals abuse their new found power to tax as a weapon? Yes they will!!!

I agree the Republicans are becoming just as much to the Left as the Democrats are and John Boehner has proved he is a Modern Pseudo Liberal(RINO) within the Republican Party besides he said at a news conference Thursday April 11, 2013 that he will continue to try and follow the Hastert Rule in spirit, but also suggested he might well violate the Hastert Rule for upcoming votes on guns, immigration and the budget meaning he is willing to go along with the Modern Pseudo Liberal Democrats which I know Boehner represents a large welfare population in Ohio's 8th Federal Congressional District which he is going to vote that way to Continue to get their votes.

Boehner on Hastert Rule:It was never a rule to begin with

RINO (Republican in Name Only

A RINO (Republican in Name Only) is an officeholder or candidate who is a member of the Republican Party, but holds views to the political left of most Republican voters. The term "RINO" describes politicians who claim to be Republican but are in fact liberal, and therefore generally debase the winning conservative coalition base of the Republican Party.

Why do you insist anyone agrees with anything you says?

Any ONE thing?

Understand this: You are an idiot; you don't know what you are talking about. When you reach a conclusion, invariable, you are wrong.

You best bet is: when you reach a conclusion about anything, understand the correct answer is the opposite of yours.

By the way, Obama was the majority choice, then and now the country agreed that the draft dodger who was the choice for the Republicans was and is and continues to be a loser today.

barefoot2626 the AnalOriface your not too bright must not realize that Obama was a Constitutional Law Professor besides you cant understand what the 16th amendment did to Article 1 Section 8 Clause 1 of the US Constitution which Obama knows which says that taxes do not have to be uniform throughout the United States and Obama & Congress wants to use the tax code created under the 16th amendment to confiscate as much wealth as possible using the 16th amendment but I agree Obama is right on one thing if he really is for it and that is to align Social Security with the Consumer Price Index so that when the economy is bad Social Security is reduced since it is a pay as you go Ponzi Scheme.

I'm not the one who got flummoxed by a quote taken straight from the Heller decision- something that is even sourced- and got it mixed up with yet another decision.

When you are able to find and repeat the ENTIRE second amendment, AnalOriface, you get back to me.

uh... correctly.

Any socialist program is the death of a country.

Why do you think Liberals hate 401k and are working very hard to destroy our freedom to generate money for our own retirement?

Because it is not fair that a 401k investment returns you TEN TIMES better retirement that Social Security, so we must spread the misery, that is the only fair thing to do!
Wow.

Too much faux news in your life, sport.

Terrifying MSNBC promo: Your kids belong to the collective
It’s no secret MSNBC is a leftist news network. But there was a new revelation on their parenting views last week, when they aired a terrifying promo that should never have seen the light of day. One of their on-air hosts actually said that we have to get past the "private" idea that parents own their kids — they actually belong to the community. Watch the clip:
For months, Glenn has been warning that the progressives would eventually just stop hiding their agenda and just come out and admit their radical goals. Well, thanks to MSNBC the progressive agenda became exposed more to the mainstream. It’s not a parody and it’s not a sketch: Melissa Harris-Perry actually said in an approved promo for the network that children don’t belong to their families, they belong to the collective.
“It is so far beyond what we have ever thought as a nation, it’s remarkable,” Glenn said.
“This is something that people thought about. This is something that everybody worked on. This is something that everybody got together and filmed,” he added.
In the video, Harris-Perry said:
We have never invested as much in public education as we should have because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children. Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities.
“There it is. Finally somebody has come out and said it,” Glenn said.
Glenn explained that many parents will fall in line with this rhetoric as they seek to shift the responsibility of raising their children from themselves onto others.
He also said that it makes no sense to spend more money on public education when it has spectacularly failed so poorly for years and years. He likened it to basketball coach who would be fired if he couldn’t produce results, not be given more money to fail over and over again.

It taught me how easy it is to steal an election using voter fraud and corrupt polling agents.
