THE INTERCEPT HAS OBTAINED a secret, internal U.S. government catalogue of dozens of cellphone surveillance devices used by the military and by intelligence agencies. The document, thick with previously undisclosed information, also offers rare insight into the spying capabilities of federal law enforcement and local police inside the United States.
So, income taxes, this is just a knee slapper to be honest, one that should have grown men crying once you peel back a few layers of the onion. I suspect the reason many don’t is just a matter of obliviousness. When you’re writing or thinking about personal income tax it’s sometimes difficult to know where a reader might be coming from. Once you’ve been researching this topic a while you start to assume everyone already knows what you’re seeing, but they just don’t care. Then you think maybe not, because if everyone knew about it there would literally be a revolt on such a massive scale it couldn’t be missed.
Many folks in the world are now coming around to the realization that personal income tax is the biggest sham/fraud there is, or ever was. The arguments about where THAT particular money goes are endless. One thing for sure is the sum is staggering. It’s not far from being equal to the amount of money united states citizens pay in interest on the federal budget. A little food for thought. When you ponder the amount of spending there is for defense department nonsense, the NSA’s expenses for running their mass surveillance on us and of course WAR… it starts to make sense why the government needs to steal money via income tax, so badly.
One thing that has always puzzled the hell out of me is that issue we all know about regarding money in general. You know, how people close to you always advise never to get involved with friends, family, etc., with regard to money. Like never borrow, or go into business and that sort of thing. The message has always been that because when it comes to money, nothing, and I mean nothing will bring out the EVIL in people faster than getting screwed out of money. Therein lies the matter that has me so perplexed. I cannot, and probably never will be able to figure out how politicians have ever gotten away with stealing money from people via the personal income tax.

The endless circles the government flies in trying to justify overall spending on matters having to do with controlling the population, are laughable. That is of course when they bother to explain anything at all. However, and this is the point, it is interesting as hell to look deeply into how much the pentagon, department of defense, and other similar agencies funding and budgets run into literally TRILLIONS of dollars every single year – that have NOTHING to do with the population’s welfare. If you do the math and lookup the figures for how much the pentagon or DOD “loses” every year, it’s horrifying. That highly notable loss somewhere in the ballpark of 3 trillion prior to 911, that all evidence of supposedly went up in smoke, was but a continuation of many similar years. Few people realize the reason that kind of money even can “go missing” is because so much of our tax dollars are earmarked for black-ops or any other thing under a title that means we can’t know about it.
Falling into the trap of feeling helpless is such an easy thing to do. This facilitates the apathy or will to look the other way, ignore it or in some cases it might just be psychological repression. Whatever the case, it is simply way, way too much money to ignore. This website is a good place to go if you would like to see a few things that could be done with the amount of money that is being stolen from the individual tax payer and diverted to things like defense contractors, every year.
