The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Thank you to the Washington Post and its opinion piece about the troubles caused by the income tax in a May 15, 2021 article. The article says much of what I have been saying about income taxes, plus much more. When I hear stupid Americans state what Fox News tells them to think (propaganda broadcasting), I cringe. The latest has been that the Democrats are at fault for pushing relief by way of unemployment compensation. This, according to such stupidity, has made Americans lazy so businesses are not able to hire enough people. Really? Before the pandemic and unemployment rose, I recall many instances when there was a lack of employees to do the work. What the hell does unemployment and unemployment compensation have to do with it, AFTER the pandemic hit? It’s called the idiocracy with herd mentality and the herd being led astray. Case in point. In 2019 and before we had to deal with this pandemic, we were at a local Lowe’s store. We pushed a button to get service. We waited and waited and waited. We pushed the button again. We waited and waited and waited. Meanwhile, we heard our request across the loud speaker system, as well as requests for service in the paint department, hardware, and several other departments. We were told Lowe’s had a “lack of employees.” Repeat. This was 2019 and prior to the pandemic and unemployment numbers going up and no need for unemployment compensation. To this, I say: “it’s the regressive income taxes, stupid, which are making Americans lazy.” Replace the income and sales taxes with value-added taxes (VAT) and the chances are great that people will want to make money and respond accordingly. Provide government funding to small business incubators and research & development money, too. But I guess I am just a stupid person making such a suggestion, right?
