The Beatles – Taxman

One, two, three, four…
One, two, (one, two, three, four!)

Let me tell you how it will be;
There’s one for you, nineteen for me.
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Should five per cent appear too small,
Be thankful I don’t take it all.
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

(if you drive a car, car;) – I’ll tax the street;
(if you try to sit, sit;) – I’ll tax your seat;
(if you get too cold, cold;) – I’ll tax the heat;
(if you take a walk, walk;) – I’ll tax your feet.


‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Don’t ask me what I want it for, (ah-ah, mister Wilson)
If you don’t want to pay some more. (ah-ah, mister heath)
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

Now my advice for those who die, (taxman)
Declare the pennies on your eyes. (taxman)
‘Cause I’m the taxman,
Yeah, I’m the taxman.

And you’re working for no one but me.


The Contrast on Taxes – Pro-growth reform or Job Crushing Tax Hikes

The Budget Debate’s Missing Ingredient – Economic Growth

Paul Ryan at the Economic Club of Chicago: Shared Scarcity vs Renewed Prosperity

Neither higher taxes nor more deficits and a higher national debt are the path to economic growth and prosperity.

President Obama hides in his budget proposal a tax rate increase to 44% for the so-called rich whose businesses create wealth and jobs in America .

This is a great speech or talk by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.

Unfortunately, while Paul Ryan talks the talk, his proposed Republican Budget simply does not walk the walk.

Congressman Ryan hides the Republican Party’s deficit in the open yet the press cannot even figure it out.

The proposed Ryan Republican budget for fiscal year 2012 results in an estimated deficit of $995 billion dollars or about another $1,000 billion increase in the national debt.

Yes, this is better than President Obama’s estimated Fiscal Year 2012 budget deficit of $1,101 billion.

Yet both proposed budgets are not fiscally responsible but business as usual for the Democratic and Republican Party establishments.

Neither the Republican nor Democratic Party budget proposals are the road to peace and prosperity but a Tea Party budget with balanced budgets most definitely is:

The real problem is out of control government spending and unbalanced budgets for nearly three more decades.

Paul Ryan long and winding road to a balanced budget in twenty-five years or longer is not a path to prosperity but a road to economic stagnation and financial ruin for the United States.

I applaud Paul Ryan’s growth and jobs message.

However, more and more deficit spending and an ever-increasing national debt are a recipe for failure.

Stop spinning and distracting us Mr. Ryan.

Balance the budget in Fiscal Year 2012 or you too will be replaced with someone from the tea party movement who will balance the budget and really cut spending.

Senators DeMint, Lee and Paul are on the right track for a peace and prosperity balanced budget that would cut spending by permanently closing Federal Departments.

Rand Paul “I Don’t Think We’re On A Path To Balancing The Budget”

3/09/11: Sen. Rand Paul on balancing the budget

03/17/11: Sen. Rand Paul Introduces Five-Year Balanced Budget Plan

Rep. Garrett explains the RSC plan to balance the budget in less than ten years on “Stossel”

However, five years is simply too long to wait and the spending cuts are too small.

The United States economy is on the brink of another recession that must be prevented by balancing the budget now to restore business and consumer confidence that Congress understands both the scope and urgency of problem.

Time is running out on both the Democratic and Republican Party establishment and their leadership.

With over thirty million American searching for a full-time job, the American people will vote out of office both big spending Democrats and Republicans.

Food and gasoline prices as well as the prices of imports and other goods and service are going up as the Federal Reserve devalues the dollar by massively increasing the money supply with so-called quantitative easing.

In other words the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar is falling in value to pay for the Federal Government’s out of control spending.

Ron Paul: There’s Too Much Bipartisanship in Spending and Welfare/Warfarism

Ron Paul: Fall of the Federal Empire

The tea party movement wants balanced budgets and absolutely no increase in the National Debt ceiling.

Any Republican or Democratic in the House or Senate that votes for unbalanced budgets starting in Fiscal Year 2012 and an increase in the National Debt ceiling should be voted out of office in the next election.

Rep. Garrett dissects the debt ceiling with Judge Napolitano

Neither Taxman Obama nor The Long and Winding Road Ryan are the stairway to heaven with a peace and prosperity economy.

George Michael – The Long And Winding Road

The Beatles The Long & Winding Road (2009 Stereo Remaster)

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to your door.

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day.
Why leave me standing here?
Let me know the way.

Many times I’ve been alone
And many times I’ve cried,
Anyway you’ll never know
The many ways I’ve tried.

And still they lead me back
To the long, winding road
You left me standing here
A long, long time ago
Don’t leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door.

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long, long time ago (ohhh)
Don’t keep me waiting here (don’t keep me waiting)
Lead me to your door. (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

The American people will be calling the tune and throwing out of office both Democrats and Republicans who waste the people’s hard-earned money on all that glitters–warfare and welfare.

The American people are looking for the piper with the message of living within ones means with balanced budgets and a dollar that is stable in value or purchasing power.

The American people know that to quote the late President Ronald Reagan, ” In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem government is the problem.”

A Reminder from Ronald Reagan

The American people are looking for a leader that is a rock when it comes to balancing the budget

The American people are not looking to be rolled by yet another articulate but fundamentally deceitful politician.

Led Zeppelin-Stairway to Heaven

“Stairway To Heaven”

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying the stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying the stairway to heaven.

There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
The piper’s calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying the stairway to heaven.

47% See Major Changes in Defense, Social Security, Medicare As Necessary to Big Budget Cuts, 36% Don’t

“…Most voters know they want to cut government spending in a serious way, but despite the ongoing national budget-cutting debate, they don’t seem to recognize what that’s going to take.

The majority of U.S. federal spending is allotted to national defense, Social Security and Medicare. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 47% of Likely U.S. Voters correctly recognize that it is necessary to make major changes in those areas to make truly significant long-term cuts in government spending. Thirty-six percent (36%) don’t believe big changes in these three areas are needed, while another 17% aren’t sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This marks virtually no change from early April but shows increased voter awareness from February of last year.

The most high-profile plan for changing Medicare that’s currently on the table is the one proposed by Republican Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. That plan, which includes allowing individuals to purchase private health insurance as an alternative and raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67, has been denounced by most Democrats and even has drawn the criticism of Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich.

But despite the attention politicians and pundits are giving Ryan’s plan, public views of it are virtually unchanged from late last month. Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters continue to favor Ryan’s budget proposal, while 34% are opposed to it. The plurality (40%) is not sure what they think of the plan. …”

Will ‘Watchdog’ Media Report on Obama’s Stealth Tax Hike?

By Lachlan Markay | May 23, 2011

“…New facts released by the office of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., reveal a hidden tax increase in President Obama’s budget proposal. Obama’s plan would, these facts demonstrate, impose a 20 percent increase in the top income tax rate – a significantly greater increase than the president has admitted.

The news media fancies itself a watchdog, so if the president is going to dramatically hike taxes, one would hope that Americans would hear about it first. But thus far, there has been almost no coverage of these stealth tax hikes. On Monday, Washington Post fact-checker Greg Kessler confirmed the veracity of Ryan’s claims. Whether other major media outlets report on them will be the true test.
