“Lying means never having to say you’re Sorry?” yeah, right.


 

“I have had a very long career. That is the first time anyone has ever told me I don’t believe you.” 

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen responded to Paul Ryan’s explosive testimony of the lies surrounding the lost emails of Lois Lerner. The head of the agency also had no feelings of remorse as far as the detailed targeting of Conservative taxpayers embedded in the crash of technology.welfare

Further investigation into my own dealings this past week with the IRS my accountant called me yesterday. His findings concerning the letter I received informing us we owed $534.29 more in taxes. The IRS or the NC Dept. of Revenue could not locate 2 other payments I made of estimated taxes for the year 2013.

In other words, I pay estimated taxes each year on money I don’t have yet. The IRS in NC billed me for $534.29 with accrued interest for late payments on money I really don’t have to pay upfront.

That’s right. Estimated taxes are a choice for the taxpayer; not a tool for the IRS to use as a debt to pay with interest added into the amount!

My accountant explained the NC Dept. of Revenue could not account for over $1000 of estimated taxes I paid last year!  They are too busy! Overworked and incompetent?

Reiterating the accountants news they spend more time correcting mistakes of the IRS than they do for their clients it was evident of his frustration.

Researching our account to find the 4 checks I sent to the NC Dept. of Revenue last year was time wasted when I needed to be doing important work.  Once discovered, the accountant had to write a letter with copies of the cleared expenses to clarify all of the funds had been paid.

Forget these taxes are not required to be paid up front.

Forget the fact the IRS is inept and incapable of performing the tasks we pay them to do.

Forget the fact the IRS is costing taxpayers  extra in charges with their unskilled, uncaring and criminal behavior.

Seriously; I am re-thinking ever paying estimated taxes again no matter what I owe by April 15th of every year.

And…..there is no apology here.

 

Proverbs 14:5 A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

Now the truth is coming out


Please listen to this video. If there was any doubt how President Obama was re-elected, this reveals the truth of what he did.  Mitt Romney was blasted by even some Republicans stating the President bought votes with our tax dollars. He was right.
If Detroit voted for him to get bailed out, who else did he promise such a lie? And what gives the President the right to do such a crooked deal with our money?  Wake up America.  No wonder he wants to raise taxes so much; he has a lot of people to payoff.

The Fiscal Cliff of Idolatry


“The ‘cliff’ is nothing more than an arbitrary deadline that will be replaced by another arbitrary deadline in the future.”

The following link reveals we are headed for a fiscal cliff?

http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/unemployment-benefits-payroll-tax-cut-really-risk-going-161508496.html

While many are standing in line for unemployment benefits, they are turning down part time work. Why?

Why work when they can get free money? Or not free money, but yours, mine and those who work….those who pay taxes. That’s right; just wait it out and get all you can before you actually find a job.

NO! Unfortunately this is the mindset of many Americans which is why the President was re-elected. Why not vote for a leader who freely gives hard earned dollars from working citizens to free-loaders?

The many videos and articles I have read about welfare, food stamps and unemployment benefits reveal numbers of citizens believe they deserve for others to pay for their “free-ride.”

In this video these two smart guys even supported that people who are able and collecting unemployment benefits should do something in return for those free hand-outs! Whoa! You mean like work?

Yes; like rebuilding roads, streets, bridges that are crumbling on our nation’s highways. The two arguably agree our infrastructure is in decline.

What about visiting nursing homes or hospitals to offer expertise in areas of need?

How about working with veterans or the disabled? Or better yet why not make use of the “moochers” by forcing them to locate other “moochers” or free loaders. Maybe it would be lessons learned and put a stop to this wasteful fraud.

And while the democrats pursue raising taxes why not cut out unnecessary government jobs? That should save wads.

Why not hire unemployed people to research every government program to eliminate unnecessary spending and slack employees. Why not rid the tax payers of useless programs altogether? Wow, what a novel idea.

Aaron Task and his buddy here voiced the fact no one is talking about payroll taxes going up? What? NO? The amount taken out each month of my husband’s salary is just plain wrong.

Hard work in=garbage out.

In other words his hard earned money is going to pay for that which we don’t believe in or “it’s the entitlements stupid.”

And of course the President is announcing how the Republicans are holding the middle and lower class hostage because they won’t sign his extension of the Bush-era tax breaks.

Why? He wants to tax the rich.
That is class warfare and it is not Biblical.

The President is the one holding America hostage. Has he created any jobs since his famous re-election? No. His Obamacare has certainly poised many companies to lay people off though! And his defense cuts just keep on coming.

The mentality of this administration if I didn’t know any better is to crumble America to its knees so government will rescue them! Sorry. They just want control and power.

By sinking the American ship, they believe we are ignorant enough to fall for their callous greed and look to them as our savior. At least that is what Jamie Foxx called the President.

Besides the financial “fiscal cliff” we are facing, statements like that place America in a far worse danger zone.

The Christians who voted for him made the difference in him being re-elected. What does that say about our country? He represents everything that God isn’t.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me……you think God has changed his mind about that?

Figure it out Please!


Ok. This is a rant. If you don’t like rants you don’t have to read this.

Christians need to get with the program. You can’t have it both ways or every other way or whenever it suits you.

You are in or out; on the fence or in the yard; inside the gates or knocking on the door.

Do you read the Bible? Do you believe it in its entirety or do you pick through it choosing only the parts you want to?

Do you agree and support abortion? The Bible doesn’t. Ex.20:13 Thou shall not murder

Do you agree and support homosexuality? The Bible doesn’t. Lev. 18:22

Do you agree and support Israel? The Bible does. (Psalm 102: 16-22)

Do you agree and support a strong military and defense? The Bible does. Genesis 14

Do you agree and support helping the poor, impoverished, disabled, widowed and orphans? The Bible does. It does not support those who can and won’t work or those who take welfare funds of any kind when they are sluggards. Ex. 20: 15 Thou shall not steal. 2 Thessalonians 3”10 “if you don’t work you don’t eat.”

Do you believe in religious freedom? The Bible does. (Judges 2:16-23)

Do you believe our present tax system is Biblical? It isn’t. (Numbers 27:8-11)

Do you believe in “Spreading the Wealth?” The Bible doesn’t. (Exod 30:13-15)

Do you believe in the death tax? The Bible doesn’t. (Prov 13:22)

The list goes on and on. And you may say that it is all in how it is interpreted, but our interpretations don’t matter just as our opinions don’t. It is what God says that matters. No ifs. Ands. Or Buts.

We can twist his words, turn them around, switch them or throw them out.

There are reasons why they are written as they are and who are we to question God?

Unfortunately in today’s world many, especially Christians have decided to “weed” out of the Bible what they want and don’t want. Depending on their present mood, or situation can be the determining factors to “opt out” of the “do not steal” the ketchup bottle from the local diner to “I paid for it anyway.” No you didn’t.

What if God decided to change his mind about his word? What if he chose to do part of what he says and not the other parts? I would have a problem with that. I would have to re-think whether I wanted to believe in God or not. Duh……

How do you think he feels when his own people are you shall have no other gods before me?”  

Oh, we can cross it out if we want to idolize a Hollywood star or break the golden rule.  But then we don’t want to cross out the part that says, “For he commands his angels to protect us wherever we go.”

Sure, go ahead. We want protection from terrorist’s attacks, crime and violence but we also have our Buddha sitting on the hearth to adore and praise for his….what does he do?

“Oh, my Buddha? He is just a dust collector. Isn’t he cute?”  Get it out of the house.

Whether you have the golden nugget collector or an obsession with Dexter, how do you think God feels when you place anything above him?

“Oh, God understands. He loves me anyway.”

Wake up. He may still love you, but since you have such an obsession with Dexter, he may just let Dexter show up at your house.

You say, “how terrible!”

I say. “Why should God protect America when we have kicked him out?”

God has stepped out of our selfish ways and allowed us to grovel in our own mess. He is a gentleman and will not force us to love him, pay attention to him or even acknowledge him.

Christians: we have got to find a way to understand God has his own plans and he doesn’t need our approval for any of them. We need to unify as his children and follow his rules and stop making up our own.

In other words, live, eat, breathe and spread his truth. Not parts of it.

And we need to do it together.

“Spreading the Wealth” or “Spreading the Gospel”


The “Spread the Wealth” idea the present administration has attempted to entice the nation to accept is not Biblical.

Praying seriously about the state of our country and this election for the last year, God finally revealed to me what I needed to know.

I have found the more I “pester” God about an issue the more he reveals to me. However, many prayer requests remain on his cherry wooden desk waiting on his response.

Maybe he needs a better assistant.

A few weeks ago I received an Absentee Ballot due to circumstances surrounding Nov 6th.  Knowing God does not want Christians to vote for anyone who actively opposes his Biblical references, is not only a vote against God, it will in turn declare an unrighteous position on the voter that automatically affects our country.

The issue of “Spread the Wealth” program was one of my many “questions for God.”

God knows the hearts of people and how much we want to help others.

The programs already administered by the government like welfare, food stamps; WIC, Medicare, etc. are given out by citizens who qualify. The funds are collected in taxes. What happens if the government is broke?

No problem. Raise taxes.

IF THEY RAISE TAXES ON ME I WILL YELL. PRESENTLY I AM PAYING ESTIMATED TAXES ON MONEY THE GOVERNMENT THINKS I WILL GET. NOT MONEY I AM RECEIVING; THE GOVERNMENT WANTS THEIR SHARE BEFORE I GET MINE!

I feel better now.

Governments who continue to seize taxpayer’s money will eventually be given more control.

So the people the government says they want to help end up with less because there is no more money from the taxpayers……

I wonder if the government is going to take from the homeless what they don’t have.

Oh. They took it from me when I was a single mother, who worked while half dead for 12 years. We barely had enough to eat but they taxed me because I had a job. Therefore, forget giving me food stamps or WIC. I didn’t qualify.

Somehow that wasn’t fair to me or my child. I should protest.

God in his infinite humor loves to entice me with his clever devices of announcing himself. As if he is playing a game, I am chasing after him through the mazes of his word so I CAN HAVE SOME PEACE!

Besides my marathon running after him, he thrives on NEVER DOING IT THE SAME WAY TWICE!

The following is his plan of equality written centuries ago that our government has shoved out the door.

1 Corinthians 8:13-15 “Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality, as it is written: “The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.”

That’s it folks; plain and simple. We help each other willingly as we have so that when we need, others help us.

You ask, “Isn’t that what the government is doing?”

Giving is opposite of taking which is the government’s idea; not God’s.

God’s heavenly bank is always overflowing. Governments were not created to be a source of income for everything. Taxes are specifically for building up a defense to protect the people and infrastructure.

James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

The above verses spell out that equality is the church’s job, not the government. When God is in charge, you won’t get ripped off.

As we have, we give.

The more you give, the more abundance will flow into your life so you can give more….. 

So here is a little quiz: if God controls who our leaders are and we only have 2 candidates, which one speaks from a Biblical standpoint? The following are a few of the major differences in the two candidates.

 

President Obama: For: abortion, gay marriage, defense cuts, raise taxes, national healthcare, more spending (no budget)

Against: support of Israel, Keystone pipeline, drilling on U.S. soil,

 

Governor Mitt Romney: For: Support of Israel 100%, strengthen defense, lower taxes, balanced budget, cut spending,

Against: abortion, gay marriage, Obamacare, illegal immigration.

The question you should ask yourself is do you vote your opinion of what you think this country needs or God’s point of view?

If you aren’t sure, maybe you should ask God what you should do. And if you are sure, check with God anyway; he likes that.
