IRS Head: ‘We May Not Have the Resources…to Provide Refunds as Quickly’

IRS Head: ‘We May Not Have the Resources…to Provide Refunds as Quickly’

IRS LogoWASHINGTON (AP) — IRS Commissioner John Koskinen says budget cuts just enacted by Congress could delay tax refunds next year.

At a news conference Thursday, Koskinen said taxpayer services will be hurt, and fewer agents will be auditing returns. He said about half the people who call the agency for assistance won’t be able to get through to a person. SOURCE

When Americans are taxed as much as we are and you have the IRS saying, ‘We May Not Have the Resources…to Provide Refunds as Quickly’, it tends to make ME believe that the issues with the IRS go well be beyond Lois Lerner and some missing emails.

We have sick, homeless and hungry children that need to be educated right here in the United States, in THIS nation, and that is a travesty.

We have sick, homeless and hungry disabled military Veterans that need medical care to keep themselves alive, they need food and shelter, they need to be cared for and they are turned away or given 2nd class treatment and the bare minimum of medicines.

Even though some DO get a meager amount of food and medication, many still die every day.

We have military Veterans that have given this nation a lifetime of service, only to be told that their benefits will be cut back because the government just doesn’t have the money to give them what they earned and what they deserve.

Our government, and particularly our President, spends money, or should I say; wastes money, in unheard of amounts. They do so because they feel like they have a bottomless money pit to dip from. That would be us, the tax payer.

I don’t know how much Obama’s Christmas Vacation to Hawaii is going to cost us, We, the People, but here’s a link from the Washington Examiner on this date last year and somehow I doubt the cost is any less this year. Obama’s 17-day trip to Hawaii costs taxpayers $4M.

Just how much does Barack Hussein Obama and his family cost the taxpayers for their travels?

Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama have the wildly inappropriate habit of spending our money on themselves. In particular, they seem to enjoy expensive vacations — at Martha’s Vineyard in the summer and Hawaii in the winter — as well as junkets to other parts of the world, aboard Air Force One. SOURCE

According to this source dated 07/05/2014, The Obamas Have Spent Over $44,351,777.12 In Taxpayer Cash On Travel.

OK, I am NOT a fool, I know that in the grand scheme of things $44,351,777.12 is not that much money and it certainly won’t pay off the deficit or run the nation, but it would go a long ways, if properly administered to ensure there was no theft and fraud, it would feed and care for a lot of hungry kids and Veterans.  Continue reading

Obama loves Cuba, America Suffers his ignorance

Obama reignites political debate over Cuba

WASHINGTON (AP) — The surprising move by President Barack Obama to restore U.S. ties with Cuba reignited long-simmering political passions over the fate of the island nation, reinforcing yet another difference between Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and several Republicans eyeing bids for the White House.

Yet even in Florida, the nation’s most essential swing state, those distinctions may not matter as much as they once did amid an increasingly diverse electorate of Hispanic voters and younger Cuban-Americans, many of whom do not share the same fervor to depose Cuba’s Castro brothers as their parents and grandparents.

“If you’re a third-generation Cuban, in your mid-30s, went to college here … things that define your worldview are not Cuban embargo politics,” said Steve Schale, a Florida-based Democratic strategist who led Obama’s state effort in 2012. SOURCE

Something is Wrong
I hate to say it but that graphic is 100% correct, we are having our freedoms infringed upon and the so-called *leadership* of this nation wants to get all cozy with Cuba.

This headline caught my eye earlier, Obama hands Cuba’s Castros a major victory, but Congress can still stop itContinue reading

Ted Cruz: Evil Conservative – Killing the GOP

Republicans blame Cruz for year-end confirmations

GOP Elephant ButtonWASHINGTON (AP) — Unhappy Republicans say Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has given President Barack Obama a present this holiday season — a gift certificate good for confirmation of 12 judicial appointments, not long after the voters had delivered the Democrats a lump of coal in midterm elections.

Cruz, a tea party favorite and potential 2016 presidential contender, disputed the claim through his spokesman on Monday.

But there was no dissent that Democrats, who must turn over power to Republicans in January, were in position to confirm not only the judges, but 11 other appointees before the Senate wraps up work for the year. SOURCE

I hope I am wrong but from what I am seeing we’re about to enter into a GOP controlled Senate and House term that is going to be more of a *play nice now, we don’t want to hurt our friends the Dems fragile little feelings* than it will be a *Let’s FIX America*.

GOP WON

I am not a TEA Party kind of person and if the experience you had with the TEA Party was anything like the experience we had with the TEA Party here in Rowlett Texas I am pretty sure you wouldn’t be a TEA Party person either.

That said; I have really become fond of Ted Cruz, I believe him to be a fire-eating kind of guy that hits the problem head on and isn’t going to compromise his Conservative way of doing things to make the GOP OR the Democrats happy.

I know that there are some GOP lawmakers that cuss Ted Cruz and the TEA Party with every breath. I have had conversations where I was told that some on the GOP side of the aisle refer to Cruz and his allies as the *wacky* side of the GOP, stealing a phrase from Sen. Harry Reid where he called Cruz and Company *wacky birds*.

Personally, I don’t know that I would want to emulate anything coming from Harry Reid, for obvious reasons, at least obvious to me. Reid IS the enemy and thankfully he will be gone soon, but as soon as he’s gone he’ll be replaced by a RINO that’s just as weak, if not weaker, than Harry Reid ever was, Sen. Mitch *I invented the word RINO* McConnell.

For those not knowing, a RINO is a Republican In Name Only. 

A RINO is something far removed from the Party of Reagan, a RINO is a lot closer to being a Democrat than a Republican, so much so that many political bloggers simply call people like McConnell and Boehner *Dem Lite*, and frankly, I don’t see them being all that *Lite* any more.

There’s an old Latin saying, “Victoribus Spolia” which translated means “To the victor go the spoils”.  Continue reading
