Does anyone remember what opie’s last tax return was? Remember CLintooon. His sold dock space and secret intellectual properites to the chinese on satellite and covert operations for hundred of millions. had to open up secret banking accounts in hong kong and Bejing. The money tail is so obvious, but for some odd reason NSA and CIA seemed to dumbto investigate. He stole thier intel and national secrets, sold it and well….Who canever forget Monic’s dress covers with bill’s seman….

And people b—- here in California because raising taxes takes a 2/3 vote of the Legislature. I so hope they don’t try this crap here!!!

Automatic tax increases = NO CONSEQUENCES for politicians spending more and more to buy votes of the untaxed.

We are all slaves if this POS goes through. (Some would argue we are now, but …)

Now look at their space program. It will exceed ours soon.

It is a great idea. The trigger will go off and still, the yearly debt is not paid for. What will happen then?
