Democrats Target Small Business, Propose Orwellian Housing Laws

Here is a recent excerpt from foxnews.com:

Small business owners across the country are receiving letters from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) questioning if they are reporting all of their cash income, in a new push by the agency some are saying could unnecessarily create fear in the small business community.

…The agency says the letters are not the same as an audit, and it is simply seeking more tax information from the businesses. However, some lawmakers and business owners who received the letters say the initiative is alarming. (end of foxnews.com excerpt)

This is yet another act of intimidation after decades in which the IRS has browbeaten honest citizens tens of millions of times over. Now here is another foxnews.com excerpt from January 2013:

Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer support in fiscal 2012, marking a steady increase in government funding despite Republican-led efforts at the state and federal levels to cut off that stream.  … The numbers showed roughly 45 percent of Planned Parenthood's budget now comes from taxpayer dollars. (end of foxnews.com excerpt)

Friends, do you see what is happening to our great nation?

It is this: Honest, law-abiding entrepreneurs who own small businesses and who often are struggling to make ends meet, people who are the backbone of a free American economy and have been for more than 200 years are being relentlessly harassed by the Democrat party and its Internal Revenue Service goons.

At the same time a radical left-wing abortion provider is getting more than $500 million annually in taxpayer money. This is socialism writ large: Positive elements in our society (small business owners, honest people, hard workers) are being forced to subsidize negative ones (abortion providers, welfare freeloaders etc.)

In short, socialism insistently takes money from good people and far too often gives it to nefarious, negative or downright bad people. This is how our nation is being bankrupted.

A recent study showed that the federal government and state governments are spending $1 TRILLION annually on so-called “anti-poverty” programs. That is about $20,000 for each “poor person”. And don’t forget that a “poor person” can be a 6-year old schoolkid, a single mother, an able-bodied male adult or a lazy 30-year old female. A “poor household” can easily collect $40,000 from the government in direct payments and in-kind services. And that is tax-free.

This massive wealth giveaway comes at the same time that the IRS is targeting conservatives, small businesses and Tea Party groups for added scrutiny.

In other words the wealth “creators” are hectored and harassed while the wealth “consumers” are rewarded over and over, often without lifting a finger. It is shameful. But that is how socialism always works and why it always produces a negative outcome. That is why very liberal American states and socialistic nations always have terrible economies – because the wealth “creators” are treated terribly while the wealth “consumers” are coddled.

But we all know a liberal who owns a small business, don’t we? And they are being targeted by the Internal Revenue Service too, aren’t they?

Not necessarily at all. Because if you have been paying attention for the last few months or if you understand how Democrats have operated for decades then you know that any business owner who can be traced to support for or contributions to the Democrat party, environmental groups, gay groups, anti-gun groups etc. will get little or no scrutiny from the IRS in the way that conservatives and Tea Partiers will. These liberals can commit any tax evasion and take any deduction and are rarely singled out. They get the IRS letter just to make it look fair, like everyone is getting it.

Now look at what our taxpayer dollars are subsidizing:

*Planned Parenthood and other hideous leftist groups like the voter-fraud group ACORN.

*Tens of billions in ‘green’ energy subsidies. Only problem is that ‘green’ energy does not work. Yet the federal government and state governments are subsidizing it lavishly. And these subsidies are enriching people on the political left who make, install and advocate ineffective windmills and solar panels.

Meanwhile small businesses are intimidated by the IRS over every nickel that they earn. It is shameful.

*Corrupt Democrats politicians in our cities nationwide, particularly in places like Detroit, steal every taxpayer penny they can get their hands on as honest, hard-working small-business owners are sent threatening letters by the Internal Revenue Service.

It is shameful.

*The federal bureaucracy is a massive blob of inefficiency in which employees, who are largely Democrats, earn twice the average salary of private-sector workers and get the most generous benefits and pensions in America. Meanwhile the owner of a dry-cleaning store in a small town in Tennessee works extra hard just to make ends meet as his tax bill goes up and up and up.

It is shameful.

*Obama bails out the unionized auto industry with tens of taxpayer billions while honest Tea Partiers are stonewalled by the IRS in their attempt to organize politically.

It is shameful.

*The collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both funded by taxpayer dollars, ruined the entire economy and cost taxpayers almost $200 billion just in direct bailout costs. Meanwhile a bicycle repair shop with four employees in a small city in Wisconsin gets a threatening letter from the federal government.

It is shameful.  Indeed it is all shameful. The list goes on and on. But to Democrats this is the status quo. Now here is a commentary about housing. Check this out from foxnews.com:

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. 

The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it.

…Data from this discrimination database would be used with zoning laws, housing finance policy, infrastructure planning and transportation to alleviate alleged discrimination and segregation. (end of foxnews.com excerpt)

This is stunning. This is the Orwellian society that we have been warned about. The government, once again, is seeking to insure some nebulous “diversity” in our neighborhoods.

To put it bluntly this means that the government is going to seek to force blacks into white neighborhoods. Because that is what this brand of “diversity” is really all about.

Of course when you mention “diversity” don’t ever expect Democrats to enforce genuine diversity like diversity of thought, like forcing tens of thousands of conservatives into teaching positions in our universities to make them balanced.  No, under the Democrats intellectual diversity is discouraged and even penalized and punished in that conservative thinking is not allowed.

Meanwhile they demand diversity of skin color because they know that 98% of blacks are liberals and so they want the blacks mixed in everywhere in order to imprint their liberalism.

One critic of the HUD guidelines said that they smack of a dangerous utopian idealism. "This is just the latest of a series of attempts by HUD to social engineer the American people," said Ed Pinto, of the American Enterprise Institute. "It started with public housing and urban renewal, which failed spectacularly back in the 50's and 60's. They tried it again in the 90's when they wanted to transform house finance, do away with down payments, and the result was millions of foreclosures and financial collapse.”

HUD has already used the courts in places like Westchester County, New York where mayors and attorneys in several towns are protesting the mandates.

For instance, in the town of Cortlandt HUD alleged that town zoning laws are limiting new residential development that could accommodate blacks in the largely white suburb. But the crowded town says that it is saving its remaining few industrial/commercial zones to provide space for needed economic development.

Then again this is how the Democrat left intimidates good citizens – by attaching fault to everyday behavior and even to zoning laws and finding a way to call them discriminatory.

Meanwhile the Democrats blame poverty on the location of the poor people rather than on factors that are known to cause poverty like horrible urban schools (controlled by Democrat teacher unions), single motherhood, illegitimacy, criminality and violence in areas with voters who support the Democrat party almost 100%.

At the same time the federal government never reports what usually happens when poor blacks move of their own accord into stable white neighborhoods and undermine them with crime, drugs, illegitimacy, sloth and violence. Because that “diversity” is something that the Democrats never want anyone to know about.
