irs and xmas

The Lord giventh and the government taketh away. Certainly the government giveth but only as a drug dealer gives to his victims.

Anyway, what a nightmare it has been as I work to get my property refinanced. Of course, my ex wants her share and rightly so. But the fight that we began as team ten years ago with the irs continues on, being waged by me solely and interfering with both our lives. I've learned that it doesn't matter when you are right in America. You are nothing but a bug in the path of an oncoming government truck.

Every xmas since the battle began, I have received a present from our thieves in power ... every year they send a coercive letter, full of threats and exaggerated claims to my money. Oh sure, we have a responsibility to pay our share for being governed. Of course, that assumes we have a responsible government. More on this later. In any case, this year's present is a lien for twice what they said I owed. "Owed" is one of those doublespeak words -- it implies that a mutual transaction took place. Image a robber popping out from behind a corner and demanding that you "owe" him your money.

I could go on and I will. Right now, I'm ranting so that I can finally get started blogging and also to develop a coherent dialog to fight the injustice and slavery and stupidity of our times. Today, this is a rant, only a rant. Just emotions that are born of frustration and exhaustion. I write only because no one will read this and I am thus free to do so.

And life goes on ....
