Goof’s lifetime started a while ago… early 1942 in the womb of a good American woman…sit tight… here’s how goof witnessed the reality of this trip we’re on…

Sure, it started before November 22, 1963… butt it got a massive acceleration on that day… almost 60 years ago.   They killed the guy whose older brother had also died fighting for America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ in 1944.   His younger brother Robert would get killed shortly afterwards… 1968.  What happened next… ?   Don’t read if honest words of truth are not your reality…

… routine handjobs aplenty from all the obese fatsos aplenty in America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ today who live off vote sellin’/buyin’ nonsense.   I was there when a turd hole of paradice… LBJ’s outhouse trip to a great society… that today costs trillions of dollars of DC (Debt Capital USA)  unrepayable DEBT that beatoff experts offer every other November… that we the dopes sell our votes to get… eternity’s gift 🎁 to the obese - a lifetime of promises all the way down below ⬇️ where the sun ☀️ don’t shine and it’s πŸ₯΅ hotter than H E double L!!!

Why did they kill JFK?   Materialism’s fatsos ain’t a fan of a fella who simply says… ask not what your country is going to do for you and all the other fatsos selling their votes early every other November!  Get off your fat ass… work hard πŸ˜“… be responsible… do without… volunteer… and one more need must be met to survive… stop πŸ›‘ borrowing and printing worth less dollar πŸ’΅ bills πŸ’Έ by the trillions you obese m’fkers…

Good Gospel Today

Matthew 23,23-26

Jesus said: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier things of the law: judgment and mercy and fidelity. (But) these you should have done, without neglecting the others. Blind guides, who strain out the gnat and swallow the camel! Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You cleanse the outside of cup and dish, but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may be clean.”

My few (2) words - materialism stinks.

Learning about America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ if we/me/you dare

Two books and an article about responsibility and discipline... simply miA… missin’ in America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ today.

1.    Greg Critser’s 2003 book – Fat Land: How Americans Became the Fattest People in the World.   A few words from Mr. Critser’s obituary*…" The 2003 book became a bestseller and was identified by the American Diabetes Assn. as the “definitive journalist account of the modern obesity epidemic.”


2.    Ray Dalio’s 2021 book Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail.  This book’s not only worth reading… it should be mandatory reading in every American πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ school NOW!


3.    https://www.cdc.gov/obesity/data/adult.html  a recent update about we American’s πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ “obesity epidemic” today… NOW!


Folks… a few more of my words NOW!    We the people are obese materialism dopes!  Our enemy’s are not!  Materialism and obesity were not the reason America’s founders/fighters gave all, for freedoms simple requirement – self and community RESPONSIBILITY.  Our many governments today are mostly NOT responsible.   Unrepayable DEBT is not responsible.  That’s a fact Jack.   More to come…

Worth reading...


As the late great Ronald Reagan once said, the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” 

He was right.

Yet here we are with inflation at a 41-year high, the worst border crisis in U.S. history and crime surging across across the country and what are Democrats focused on? 

Flooding the IRS with $80 BILLION in new funding to hire an additional 87,00 new auditors and agents to go after everyday Americans and small businesses. 

To put that into perspective, that’s roughly double size of the agency currently and more than the staff of the Pentagon, FBI, Border Patrol and State Department combined. 
Sadly, this wouldn’t be the first time the IRS was weaponized against the American public. Who could forget Lois Lerner? 

Lerner of course is the disgraced former high-ranking IRS official under the Obama administration who oversaw the intentional targeting and harassment of conservative taxpayers. Her seething disdain for conservatives, whom she referred to as "crazies" and "a--holes," was palpable.

The evidence of IRS abuses is overwhelming and points to a chilling pattern of intimidation and harassment against American citizens. And now, middle-class families are in the crosshairs.

You can rest assured that I voted NO on this legislation. Read the below Wall Street Journal editorial and let me know if you agree with my vote.


The IRS Is About to Go Beast Mode

The Editorial Board

Progressives want Joe Biden to unleash what they call “beast mode” executive power, and the Schumer-Manchin tax bill supplies the cash to turn the Internal Revenue Service into Wolverine.

The pact between Sen. Joe Manchin and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer includes $80 billion in new funding for the tax man. Democrats claim this “investment” will yield more than $200 billion in revenue. That estimate is highly speculative, but if it’s anywhere close to right IRS auditors will soon be coming after tens of millions of Americans.

The $80 billion is more than six times the current annual IRS budget of $12.6 billion. The money will be ladled out over nine years and comes with few strings attached. The main Democratic command is for the tax agency to bring the hammer down on taxpayers.

The bill earmarks $45.6 billion for “enforcement,” including “litigation,” “criminal investigations,” “investigative technology,” “digital asset monitoring” and a new fleet of tax-collector cars. The result will be far more audits, civil suits and criminal referrals.

The main targets will by necessity be the middle- and upper-middle class because that’s where the money is. The Joint Committee on Taxation, Congress’s official tax scorekeeper, says that from 78% to 90% of the money raised from under-reported income would likely come from those making less than $200,000 a year. Only 4% to 9% would come from those making more than $500,000.

The IRS knows the super-wealthy employ lawyers and accountants who make litigation time-consuming and risky. It also knows that Democrats would howl if the agency pursues fraud in the earned-income tax credit program, despite what the IRS has estimated are $18 billion in improper payments each year.

A particular audit target will be “pass throughs” including Subchapter S businesses that file under the individual tax code. Democrats failed to raise the top individual tax rate, so unleashing IRS auditors is Plan B.

Many of these are small businesses that will settle with the IRS rather than fight and endure years of costly litigation. The IRS won only $1.7 billion of the $4 billion in disputed taxes and penalties in cases closed in U.S. tax court in fiscal 2019. But few taxpayers can afford to fight in court.

Despite all this new money, Americans shouldn’t expect better IRS service. The agency in the 2022 filing season answered a mere 10% of its phone calls. The Taxpayer Advocate Service revealed in June that as of May 31 the IRS was still sitting on 21.3 million unprocessed paper tax returns, with millions of taxpayers “waiting six months or more to receive their refunds.” Yet the Schumer-Manchin bill devotes only $3.2 billion for “taxpayer services.”

The bill does, however, provide $15 million to study a bad Elizabeth Warren idea. An IRS task force will have nine months to deliver a report on the feasibility of the IRS running its own “free direct efile tax return system.” America has a voluntary tax system that lets taxpayers determine their correct amount of tax before the IRS checks it.

Sen. Warren wants to create what would be a federal H&R Block that assesses tax liability for taxpayers. Taxpayers would presumably have to appeal if they disagree, and who knows how long that would take.

All of this is likely to be made worse by what seems to be the increasing politicization of the tax agency. Lois Lerner notoriously targeted conservative nonprofits for special scrutiny in 2013. ProPublica, the left-leaning website, obtained and published the confidential tax information of private citizens in 2021—conveniently when Democrats were debating whether to impose a new wealth tax. The IRS has promised to investigate the illegal leak but has so far come up empty.

The new wave of audits will hit taxpayers even as tax revenue as a share of GDP is back close to its historic norm of 18.5% and may be going higher as corporate and individual tax revenue soars. Tax receipts were up 25% in the first nine months of fiscal 2022 after rising 18.3% in fiscal 2021.
The federal government isn’t starving for revenue. Congress wants more tax revenue because it can’t control its appetite for spending. That’s why it wants a tax agency in beast mode.

“… if they remain quiet… it is a lethargy… of death to the public liberty.”

Here are Thomas Jefferson’s (TJ’s) written words* –

Paris Nov. 13. 1787.

the people can not be all, & always, well informed. the part which is wrong [. . .] will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had 13. states independant 11. years. there has been one rebellion. that comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. what country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure.

My words now… I am an American goof… gettin’ old ornery fella… conceived/born 1942… WWII time… that’s a fact Jack.

I find today's “misconceive” DC dopes to be exactly what TJ told us a while ago would occur…”death to the public liberty…” they’re doin’.   We can vote the DC dopes goodbye… perhaps… maybe… butt, doubtful.   We’ll see. If not, well this almost 80 y/o goof is ready to give TJ’s “tree of liberty… it’s natural manure”.   What say thee… ?

Nancy’s silliness… is now ours

Folks, this is gonna be fairly brief… here are several words I wrote several hours ago…

“If we Americans have witnessed a lesson of history’s repeating itself… if we are as smart and accomplished as we claim endlessly to be… if we Americans are the answer to all that matters as history repeats itself over and over… again and again… what the H E double L are we doing allowing Nancy and a few of her friends to travel 🧭 around the globe at our cost πŸ’²…  us hard working tax πŸ’° paying DEBT πŸ’Έ dominated dopes… preaching NOnSENSE?”

Are those few words above ⬆️ reasonable… factual… readable…much less worth every worth less $0.01 penny neither charged nor received for them?   My answer is… ya’ gotta be kiddin’!

I can and could go on… why bother?  Not only are my words unread… they simply repeat themselves over and over… again and again.   It’s called history… and it simply loves repeatin’ itself!  Our many enemy’s know this… we apparently do not.
