Choking on "The Most Transparent Administration in History"

Offer this evidence to the morons naifs who swallow that line and never choke. And you could rightfully file this away under the heading "Open Contempt."
Gov't taxes & fees now included

To add to the grim irony, the address of the link is titled -- ta dum -- pop_fullFareDisclosure.html

Full fare disclosure?


There is NO breakdown of the regulatory fees imposed by the Statist government whatsoever.

Here, let me put it in the proper voice. Ahem.

"Eat your taxes and don't worry about how big they are or what we even claim to be using them for.
Why should we even bother figuring it out anyway. Where's your need to know what we are doing? The need to know is above your pay-grade citizen peon."


  1. You at the highest reaches of power:

    Your hatred for and contempt of humanity has become crystal clear to those of us who are unafraid to face up to what you are up to.

    You must harbor a special hatred for us who know that you are not God for the very fact we know it.

    I call myself agnostic because I do not KNOW He exists. (I have faith He exists, but I do no know it. That is how He chose to do things, and I accept it and respect it.)

    However, what I DO know is that you are not Him. Either you will be forgotten, or you memory will be like a curse. And deservedly so since you will have seen to it that millions (if not billions given your plans) will die unnecessarily in pursuit of your pessimistic, wrong and vain vision.

    As to what this comment has to do with the facts of the thread, it is that as your contempt builds (as it is on display here) your true intentions will become too clear to deny no matter how much propaganda you spew.

    Your purpose in being so in-you-face is that it help you identify those who know and are against you. That way you can remove them in sufficient quantitities so they can't scare the Sheeple before you get all your Judas goats in place.

    And, of course, you will mock me and those like me. But it is not us you need to worry about. It is Him. Repent and face the music in this world and maybe He will have mercy on your currently doomed soul.

  2. Just an extension of payroll taxes, eh?
    If you don't see them, they won't upset you so much.
    Except in your case. And mine.
    I think your comment should be another post.

    1. It is also probably a preliminary move prior to adding "green" taxes to the fees. The Soviet style media (SSM) won't report on them, or report on them glowingly but unobtrusively, while they get bigger and bigger -- and then the Left will claim it's the greedy airline companies that are exploiting the fare-payers.

      Same thing now in California with fuel taxes. There are green taxes buried in the prices of gas and electricity whilst the SSM wails about the greedy fuel companies. Of course, all the usual naifs gobble it up because even the bigger blogs won't nail them daily like I do when I'm refreshed and fired up.

    2. My first comment is my way of building up to a wider discussion.

      I'd be interested in discussing some of my thoughts with you. Here's one.

      Some friends said that Moses being told to take off his shoes on the holy ground by the burning bush was symbolic. I averred it may have been much more than that. If God's purpose for our lives it to test our souls (as many have considered), then this is an indication that there are some things even God cannot prevent -- such as an impurity (any object of death or deadly thought) in the presence of Him would bring about the destruction of that soul.

      I know there are many Calvinist sects that profess that ALL a human need do is say he believes in Him and that will wash away their sins. However, if it is untrue in their hearts that they've repented, that untruth will lead to the death of their souls and there is NOTHING the Son can do for a faker. Their own still blemished, phonily repentant souls will do them in.

      We know that God had much for Moses to do. Written history about Him begins there. I would not be agnostic were He to speak to me. So would He say "take off your shoes," I don't ask what holy ground implies, I simply do it. I think there is a high likelihood that there is more than mere symbolism there.

  3. Pasc, When Jesus washed the disciples feet, Peter said "All of me! (ed's personal transliteration).
    Jesus said that he was clean, only his feet needed washing.
    I (and my class) believe that that meant that when you walk in this world, you pick up crap on your feet from having come in contact with it. So you might be cleansed (salvation) but you need a rinse once in a while.
    Moses gave the Law after the burning bush incident.
    That meant that there was no Law for him to have broken yet.
    He could not be 'unclean" as that was not defined yet.
    So all God required to satisfy His holiness requirements was for Moses to remove his shoes that had "world" on them.
    I'm not a Calvinist.
    I think some people are more disposed towards salvation than others. Trick is, it's like alcoholism. You never know til you try it.
    I explained to a guy once that Jesus is both Savior and Lord.
    I made Him my Lord (I recognized His position of authority from reading the prophecy concerning Him) before making Him my Savior (admitting that I had sin that needed dealt with).
    More often it's the other way around.
    People ask for forgiveness (altar call) but never do what he asks or requires of them (per your example).
    Hope I didn't come off too pedantic.

  4. BTW: When I said I was not a Calvinist, I didn't mean to imply that you thought I was one, I was just stating a starting point for my position.

  5. "Moses gave the Law after the burning bush incident.
    That meant that there was no Law for him to have broken yet."
    I assume you are comfortable with this statement, no doubt in great part because it fits the rest of your ideas. No you are not pedantic for me. I'm constantly in search of better understanding and know the best of us are fortunate to have been given a peak into the Mind of God. Like the 4 blindmen and the elephant, even piecing together their reports does not describe an elephant well.

    OTOH, I hope I don't come off as too Socratic with what follows.

    There are several issues this statement brings to mind. What about the 7 laws given to Noah. He couldn't have broken them? Recall he fled Egypt because he'd killed the slave driver and had good reason to doubt he'd be tried justly. But still he was under a cloud.

    The 10 Commandment, OTOH, were meant for a nation of priests, not for all mankind. Now, although it would not hurt the rest to try to meet the 10, the 7 are hard enough. And even then, who passes flawlessly? Thus the need for repentance and pleas for salvation.

    So again, I ask, is it not plausible that God was warning Moses far more than symbolically? My original concerns remain. There are things we can shun and be pure. Slipping off that which we tread in. Or washing our soles. But if any of that remains internalized, stuck to our souls, they are consumed. All of it.

    Moses, in the end, was punished IN THIS world for disobedience that grew out of frustration and impatience. Looking at those last two words and it is very hard not to understand, especially if the rock he was told to speak to is a metaphor for the Israelites. He struck them many times over the course of 40 years. It would have been some miracle to have been able to get 100 percent compliance from them. Indeed, knowing what I know, it would have been a miracle for him to have achieved 50 percent. BTW, Moses spoke to the rock and got water at the beginning of the 40 years, but it didn't work at the end of the 40 years, and that led to him striking it.

    Familiarity breeds contempt is a very old saying. Correspondingly in the Gospel, Jesus was regarded least well in the town in which He grew up. The more dedicated the priests were in serving God to the letter, the less they felt they felt inclined to relate to mankind for whom they were in that service. And we have "public servants" today who have not been told that by our clergy for fear of the IRS being used to strike back for such effrontery.

    What does that tell us? That today's clergy, who are a stand-in or placeholders, for the priests of old, are more fearful of earthly rulers than of Him. And the public servants who wish to be treated as rulers are a far cry from the station for which they were elected or appointed. By trampling liberties in the name of pursuing equality (better all be poorer than a few more rich than others -- 'cepting for the ruling class), they have made their ideology the new god to be served. And then there are the closet misanthropes who urge all of this because of their death cult pagan morality. Hence the animosity towards and intimidation of any who retain some sound understanding of the foundations of the Judeo-Christian ethic.

  6. Wow. I thought I posted a long reply.
    I know it was nothing you'd delete, so I must have screwed up.
    I just want you to know that I didn't neglect my side of the conversation.
    I never heard of the Seven Laws of Noah and upon googling see that they are extra-biblical which would explain my unfamiliarity.
    I agree with your last paragraph, except that there are some clergy who stand as Nathan and call out the wrongs.
    But many (including my own pastor, a great guy) are afraid of offending the sensibilities of a couple members.
    I've spoken up in Sunday School and had them act like I was wrong to challenge their cherished political views.

    1. I've learned to save anything in an email draft that I am concerned might be chewed up by blogger or any other site engine. Typically long ones because they are the hardest to recreate. In fact, given that it is hard to find a comment with search engines, anything you think might be germane to use at another time is worth keeping in any case. Obtaining dialogues that stimulate my thinking is hard enough without the worry losing the seeds that new thought provoke.

    2. When I speak disparagingly of clergy, I am speaking of the institutions, not of all individuals. They are probably more irritated than I am but are trapped by what I have referred to as "I thought you were smarter than that." Other words they hear are "don't you know which way the wind blows?" And "better to know which side of the bread is buttered." And "there you go tilting at windmills again." The pressure to conform to opinions within any institution today in America is worse than at any time in my life. Global warming is maybe the worst thing to happen to science -- Gallileo barely escaped the pyre to be confined to house arrest for daring to challenge the consensus of his time. Consensus is not science, and going along with the charades in order to stay employed often appears to be a lesser evil; to whit "better to suffer and try my best because it will be tougher to achieve reforms from outside."

      Those two members of concern likely are on the buttered side of the bread, no?

    3. I should have written not "they are probably..." but instead "whatever their numbers, they are..."

      What troubles them are how many around them succumb to all those entreaties to bend a little here, a little there. Pretty soon they forget why they're there. No man can serve two masters. We have an endemic problem throughout society not the least of which is because of that feeling of being surrounded. And it is probably not true either, but the media helps support the notion, making it even more important to speak out. It's tough at first. It should be especially tough for an agnostic like myself rather than for those who profess to believe in Him. But I still try to follow the guidelines that ask "would He approve or disapprove?" and go on from there.

  7. "But I still try to follow the guidelines that ask "would He approve or disapprove?" and go on from there."

    1. Until now I had never thought about that phrase very hard. And now it strikes me as totally wrong headed. Jesus was capable of DELIVERING miracles. We can only request them without certainty of fulfillment. And what is more He know it too. No, I sense it is a different matter altogether for us mortals. We are expected to use our judgment and perhaps be judged by how well we stuck to it. IOW, where we know we have a choice and weigh the outcome. It is far from easy. My days are filled with memories of poor and even stupid choices and I remain amazed that I'm still here to berate myself for them.
