Bite The Hand That Feeds You

Those of us in science very early on become familiar with Avogadro’s Number. This is the number of atoms in a quantity of an element known as a “Mole” a weight equal to its atomic weight in grams on the Periodic Table. For example, for Carbon 12, there would be one Mole in 12 grams and that would have Avogadro’s number of atoms.

This number is unbelievably large. It is the number 6 followed by 23 zeros! (600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000)

Another constant in physics is the speed of light. It is 186,000 miles per second, or 290000000 meters per second.

I propose a new constant in economics; the Obama’s Number. This would be the number 2 with 12 zeros after it. (2,000,000,000,000)

All three numbers are of unimaginable scale. The first two, constants in chemistry and physics, were designed by God and discovered by scientists. The third, a new constant in government spending, was created by Chairman Obama, Prime Minister Pelosi and Comrade Reed.

"A society that tries to spend itself to prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself by the handle." -Winston Churchill

Americans earning more than $200,000 per year provide most of the jobs in this country and most of the tax revenue. Those in the “top 5%” pay 70% of the taxes and this is about to go beyond 90%. The new era of income distribution will destroy big and small businesses alike and will bankrupt the entire country. Obama is literally biting the hands that feed this country and it is nothing more than government sanctioned robbery. This is being done so that Obama and the Pelosi-Reed Triumvirate can gain unprecedented power over the lives of all of us in perpetuity.

Now, more than ever, the spirits of our founding fathers demand a response. We must rise up for the good of all Americans. If we do not act, the current administration will bankrupt the country.

"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in;" - Abraham Lincoln

He understood the true meaning of charity. Lincoln was not talking about wealth redistribution or stealing from those who worked hard to earn their money. His understanding of charity was an attitude of good will toward all and actions that seeks to help everyone rise up rather than to create a perpetual underclass dependent upon the government forever.

Perhaps those earning over $200,000 yearly should begin thinking of themselves and not others. Perhaps the correct plan of action for those high earners and high producers would be:

1. Conserve money. Do not spend if the current practices are not reversed. Save for the inevitable crisis to come.

2. Reduce personal income. Take an extra two to four weeks of vacation. This will reduce the intake of the treasury under Turbo Tax Geithner by a huge amount, though not by Obama’s Number. All small businesses will do by continuing to employ, earn and produce is to feed the unending government redistribution efforts.

3. If high earners own more than one home, perhaps they should consider defaulting on one of them. Under the current plan, they probably owe more than it’s worth and homes will not regain their value for years, if ever. Why continue to pay so to underwrite those who do not? Continued payment as an honorable person will simply be used to help rob you blind. Credit ratings will mean nothing in the coming economy and under Obama’s plan there will be no tax deduction for the interest on higher value homes anyway.

4. Lay off employees. Obama will take care of the laid off workers and in the end small business owners will work less, pay less to the government and net income after taxes will not change much. Why continue to feed the huge alimentary canal that is Obama’s administration?

"The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other." - Ronald Reagan

5. If this does not work, perhaps a consideration would be simply not paying taxes under Obama’s new rules. A refusal to pay taxes by literally tens of millions of Americans would overwhelm the ability of Mr. Geithner to deal with such numbers and would send a message that hard working Americans are finished being the lambs sacrificed at the alter of irresponsibility and socialism.

"Withholding payment of taxes is one of the quickest methods of overthrowing a government." - Mahatma Gandhi

Sounds harsh, you say? Yes, but so was the US Revolution. This country was established principally because of taxation without representation. If our founding fathers could see what is happening under taxation with representation, they would want to re-join Britain. We must peacefully revolt or we will have national bankruptcy and worsening poverty for decades to come. Such action may temporarily worsen the economy, but it is the only chance we have to prevent being robbed by the government and to reverse these destructive trends that will cripple us for decades to come. We must sacrifice now for our children for they, and those of future generations, will blame us if we do not.

It's beginning to happen, with "Tea Parties" all over this great country. Join all hard working Americans to peacefully, thoughtfully rise up against this new tide. We are all in the same sinking ship. Everyone’s livelihood is at stake and we must as Americans come together. In the US revolution it was not rich against poor. It was rich and poor alike who banded together to ensure freedom for all. Freedom to succeed on one's own merits, not to plunder the homes of others. Equal opportunity does not and was never meant to equate with equal outcome. People of good will, poor and rich alike, know this and understand this.

At another very dark time in the history of the world, Winston Churchill was hoping for a change of heart in America when he said:
"Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing...after they have exhausted all other possibilities."

Let’s not prove Mr. Churchill right yet again.

For, as Benjamin Franklin said:
“We must hang together, or we shall all surely hang separately”.

GOD Bless the USA.
