Warmongers Haven’t Given Up on Syria

False flags are flying in Syria. A false flag is a deception carried out by one party so as to make it look as if another party is responsible. In March of 2013, media first reported the use of chemical weapons in Syria, after President Obama declared their use a “red line”, meaning the US would attack in response to their use.
Warmongers beat the war drums, but saner heads resisted. Pat Buchanan wrote, “It does not require Inspector Clouseau to surmise this may be a fabrication to stampede the ever-gullible Americans into plunging into Syria to win the war for the al-Qaida-saturated Syrian rebels.” That May, The Chicago Tribune reported the statement of one of the UN investigators of the attack, “This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.”
That temporarily stalled the rush to war, but the warmongers weren’t finished, so the rebels staged another false flag chemical attack in August. The Israeli government, which also provided supposed intelligence supporting the first false flag, claimed to have intercepted a phone call of a general officer ordering the attack.
The Russians disputed the charge against the Syrian government, claiming, “[T]he shell used in the incident ‘does not belong to the standard ammunition of the Syrian army and was crudely according to type and parameters of the rocket-propelled unguided missiles manufactured in the north of Syria by the so-called Bashair al-Nasr brigade’” The Russians ought to know since they supplied Syria with its chemical weapons.
But this time casualties numbered in the hundreds, and it looked like the warmongers were going to get their war until the American people forced Obama to back down and accept a deal brokered by Russian President Putin to remove Syria’s chemical weapons.
Famed journalist Seymour Hersh recently verified this attack was also a false flag. From London Review of Books, “[Turkish] Prime Minister Recep Erdoğan was known to be supporting the al-Nusra Front, a jihadist faction among the rebel opposition, as well as other Islamist rebel groups. ‘We knew there were some in the Turkish government,’ a former senior US intelligence official, who has access to current intelligence, told me, ‘who believed they could get Assad’s nuts in a vice by dabbling with a sarin attack inside Syria – and forcing Obama to make good on his red line threat.’” Hersh continues, “The [Defense Intelligence Agency] paper drew on classified intelligence from numerous agencies: ‘Turkey and Saudi-based chemical facilitators,’ it said, ‘were attempting to obtain sarin precursors in bulk, tens of kilograms, likely for the anticipated large scale production effort in Syria.’”
The US was aware these were false flags all along. Turkey is in NATO, so it can drag the US into war in Syria.
Hersh also verified the four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, were killed over weapons trafficking, “A highly classified annex to the [Senate report on the Benghazi attack], not made public, described a secret agreement reached in early 2012 between the Obama and Erdoğan administrations. It pertained to the rat line. By the terms of the agreement, funding came from Turkey, as well as Saudi Arabia and Qatar; the CIA, with the support of MI6, was responsible for getting arms from Gaddafi’s arsenals into Syria. A number of front companies were set up in Libya, some under the cover of Australian entities. Retired American soldiers, who didn’t always know who was really employing them, were hired to manage procurement and shipping.”
In March, Turkey shot down a Syrian plane which officials claimed entered Turkish airspace. Also in March, Turkish officials were recorded discussing staging another false flag attack in Syria. One official said, “I’ll send 4 men from Syria, if that’s what it takes. I’ll make up a cause of war by ordering a missile attack on Turkey; we can also prepare an attack on [Turkish monument] Suleiman Shah Tomb if necessary.” Erdoğan responded by blocking Twitter and YouTube so Turks couldn’t listen to the recording.
Now it’s happened again. On April 12 The Washington Post reported, “Syrian government media and rebel forces said Saturday that poison gas had been used in a central village, blaming each other for an attack that reportedly injured scores of people.”
The US, Britain, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and al Qaeda affiliates may seem like unlikely allies. The common factors behind this alliance and between Syria and Ukraine are Russian influence, oil and dollars. Russia has a naval base in Syria and one in Crimea which it recently annexed. Strategic oil pipelines also run through both countries. The US wants control of those pipelines because it fears Russia may sell oil denominated in currency other than the dollar, severing the petrodollar link and ending the status of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. This would trigger hyper-inflation in the US. The US already toppled Saddam Hussein and Muammar Qaddafi because they rejected the petrodollar. Iran may be next for the same reason. These civil wars are proxy wars to delay the collapse of the dollar.

Is Paul Ryan a Democrat Operative?

By all accounts, Republicans were set up for a wave election this November. As of this writing, Real Clear Politics predicts Republicans win 47 Senate seats to 46 for Democrats, 24 governorships to 18, and 232 House seats to 187. The rest are toss-ups. Famed statistical prognosticator Nate Silver predicts Republicans will pick up six seats and win the Senate. Panicked Democrats are ceding the House in an attempt to save the Senate.
President Obama’s approval rating sits at 42 percent and Democrats are running from him like rats fleeing a sinking ship. But the worst issue for Democrats right now is Obamacare. Politico reports even after Obama gloated about his phony 7.1 million sign-up milestone, Democrats are still running from it, “Vulnerable incumbents who voted for the Affordable Care Act but have distanced themselves have no plans to suddenly embrace it. They plan to continue emphasizing the ways they want to ‘fix it’ and ‘make it work.’”
If Democrats wanted to get it right, if they could get it right, they could have done so the first time. No Republicans voted for Obamacare. They have nobody to blame. Like every other socialist policy, there’s no fixing Obamacare. The problem is inherent in socialism, not the policy implementation. Fortunately, most Americans realize that about Obamacare. Too bad they don’t realize it for all socialist programs.
So despite Obama’s duplicity - he won’t tell us how many people actually paid for Obamacare, how many of those were uninsured previously, or how many of those are the young, healthy people necessary to subsidize the costs for older, less healthy people before the election - things looked rosy for Republicans.
The Republican establishment has also battered and broken the Tea Party. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s boasts in The Washington Times, “‘I think we are going to crush them everywhere,’ he said, The New York Times reported, ‘I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.’” McConnell faces a Tea Party primary challenge, so maybe this is wishful thinking, but I doubt it.
Enter Paul Ryan. With everything going Republicans’ way, Ryan promoted a nakedly political budget, taking the focus off Obamacare and giving Obama - the greatest demagogue of my lifetime - red meat to attack.
The New York Times notes the political nature of Ryan’s budget, “Mr. Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman and a possible White House contender in 2016, laid out a budget plan that cuts $5 trillion in spending over the next decade. He said it would bring federal spending and taxes into balance by 2024, through steep cuts to Medicaid and food stamps, and the total repeal of the Affordable Care Act just as millions are reaping the benefits of the law.”
Ryan targets only programs overwhelmingly favored by Democrats, and his cuts, besides Obamacare, are phony, actually reductions in increases. The Demagogue-in-Chief called Ryan’s budget a stink-burger to great fanfare.
Tea Party activists saw through Ryan’s gimmick too. Breitbart News quotes one critic, “Ben Cunningham, founder of the Nashville Tea Party, told Breitbart News it is fitting that Ryan released his budget on April Fool's Day. ‘On this day when we celebrate fools, we are once again presented with a budget by Republicans and asked to believe it is something more than a political document,’ Cunningham said.”
Another critic exposes the budget for increasing spending for two years before beginning reductions, “Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, told Breitbart News ‘Ryan's budget should be found in the book store in the fiction department. If there is one thing we know about Washington, increased spending now with the promises of spending cuts in the future means we will get the spending but never the cuts.’”
Breitbart continues, “‘The sad fact is that the promised reductions never come,’ [Mark Kevin] Lloyd said. ‘Future congresses are not bound by the dreams, schemes, and chicanery of previous congresses. These people think the American people are stupid, and the fact that we keep letting them get away with it makes me believe they might be right.’”
In midterm elections the party that controls the White House generally has trouble turning out their voters, but voters for the opposition party come out strong. With Obamacare and Obama both so unpopular, that’s how 2014 was shaping up. Ryan’s budget turns that upside-down by energizing Democrat voters and chilling Republican excitement. Obama’s approval rating will increase as he attacks Ryan’s budget.
Ryan is no fool. He’s a long-time member of House Speaker Boehner’s ruling elite from a moderate district in the liberal state of Wisconsin. He’s about to become Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. He and Boehner knew the political consequences of releasing that budget.
Ryan’s budget shows the Republican and Democrat divide is fake. The real divide is between ruling predators and us, their prey. No predator wants its food supply reduced. Republican and Democrat partners rule us more thoroughly through divide and conquer than any invading army ever could.

Government Exacerbates Income Inequality

President Obama thinks income inequality is the biggest problem facing Americans. The Pope thinks it’s the most important issue in the world. The two men recently met to discuss it, but if they were honest, the solution would be readily apparent to both of them. Obama’s policies, and the economic policies of all governments, create the outrageous income inequality we see around the world today.
Still, income inequality is far from the worst problem facing society. For example, income inequality in China today is far greater than it was when Mao Zedong killed 65 million equally poor people in his Great Leap of Mass Murder. Obama is a great demagogue of income inequality because it benefits him personally. The reality is older people tend to make more money because they’re more skilled and they tend to have amassed more wealth because they’ve worked longer. If government hadn’t broken our economy, young people would do the same.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with income inequality when it’s based on merit. Every individual is unique, with different strengths, weaknesses and priorities. In a free market, better businessmen would make more money than worse businessmen, and business owners would make more money than workers in general in because business owners incur more risk than workers. More skilled workers would earn more than less skilled workers in general because there would be a smaller supply of higher skilled workers. The incentive of earning more income based on merit would create an environment of generally increasing productivity that would benefit everybody.
At the same time, no business owner would earn outrageously more income than others, at least not for long, because as soon as they did, competitors would enter the market to take a share of those profits until unrestrained competition lowered the profits back into the normal range.
On the other hand, it’s grossly unfair when government uses it power of coercion to enrich some at the expense of others, but that’s the only reason government as we know it exists. It’s a law of economics that taxes and regulations benefit the richest by protecting them from competition because their big businesses can absorb the additional expenses better than smaller competitors. Taxes, regulations and printing money are the tools government uses to create giant banks, corporations and the fantastic salaries of the plutocrats while making everybody else poorer. The problem of income inequality Obama pretends to care about is caused by US government interventions in the marketplace that keep the economy from being a meritocracy, and Obama is the worst interventionist of my lifetime. Bush the Younger was the worst before him. The more government intervenes, the wealthier the plutocrats get. It has nothing to do with partisanship. It’s the nature of all coercive governments at every level.
The blog identifies Obama’s policies as one source of income inequality, “He has presided over corporate bailouts, not only declaring the Wall Street banks too big to fail, while a multitude of small businesses did fail, his policies continue to support the banking industry through low interest rates and the payment of interest on reserves held at the Fed. Banks holding bad mortgages were bailed out while individual homeowners were evicted from their homes.”
Economist George Reisman writes of another source, “Credit expansion is responsible for sharply increased economic inequality, in which the wealthier strata of the population appear to increase their wealth dramatically relative to the rest of the population and for no good reason.” All central banks including the Federal Reserve (Fed) expand credit by counterfeiting funny-money and handing it out to their big bank cronies. The Fed is a quasi-private entity whose owners are secret, but run primarily by political appointees. It was created by Congress for the benefit of the government and plutocrat bankers. Because it is a legalized counterfeiting organization, it could not exist without government.
So-called intellectual property rights - patents and copyright - are another source of income inequality government uses to quash competition, artificially enriching giant corporations by raising prices for consumers. Patents are described as grants of privilege, but they’re better understood as bans on competition. They are grants of monopoly. Government creates monopolies, not the free market. Patents and copyright create high tech, music and movie plutocrats.
The defining issue of our times is economic freedom or, since every decision is an economic decision, freedom. Countries with greater economic freedom invariably enjoy greater prosperity, security, health and happiness. They also invariably enjoy greater economic growth. Economic freedom in the US fell under Bush and plummeted under Obama. The Heritage Foundation ranks US twelfth in economic freedom in 2014, below Estonia. 63 percent of Americans believe the country is going in the wrong direction, and this collapse in economic freedom is why. All you have to do is look around to see Americans were better off when we were more free. When the debt bubble collapses, we’ll realize how bad income inequality really is. We’ll be stuck with a modern version of feudalism much like survivors after the fall of Rome.

Big Bang Cultists Steal Our Money

Unless you live under a rock, you probably saw headlines proclaiming scientists discovered evidence proving the Cosmic Inflation theory of the Big Bang. The Big Bang theory claims the universe sprang into existence from nothing over 13 billion years ago. The simple Big Bang theory had lots of problems, so Dr. Alan Guth theorized that, shortly after springing into existence, the universe rapidly inflated at faster than the speed of light.
Both theories have fundamental problems. One of the principles of modern science is that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. The principle is called Conservation of Energy. But the Big Bang theorizes all the matter and energy in the universe sprang out of nothing - something from nothing - violating that principle. Another basic principle of science is that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. The speed of light is called the cosmic speed limit. Yet the Cosmic Inflation theory violates that principle. Pseudo-scientists, when their theories don’t work, resort to magic to fix them. That so-called scientists propose these theories with a straight face is an insult to real scientists.
One of the funniest aspects of this story is the researchers didn’t discover what they expected, yet they claim their results support the theory. notes, “The researchers were surprised to detect a B-mode polarization signal considerably stronger than many cosmologists expected.” Real science is predictive. When observations don’t match the predictions, the theory is falsified. But being a high priest of the Big Bang cult means never having to admit your theory is wrong.
Physicist Wal Thornhill explains the Big Bang theory was a religious product from the beginning, “The big bang was not ‘discovered’ but contrived by mathematicians following the proposal of a Belgian Roman Catholic priest and astronomer, George Lemaitre, for the origin of the universe from a ‘primeval atom’ or ‘Cosmic Egg exploding at the moment of the creation.’ The theory defies physics principles and is unrealistic, needing most of the matter in the universe to be invisible (not even dark) and a mysterious ‘dark’ energy. Even galaxies must have mathematical figments (black holes) at their hearts to explain just a few of their characteristics.” The theory was an attempt to marry religious creation myth with 20th century observations, not a product of science, and it operates as a religion today. Much like the pseudo-scientists of the great Global Warming scam, Big Bang priests look silly because they use the trappings of science in an attempt to prove a theory - already falsified - instead of trying to disprove it as the scientific method demands. Thus Guth looked silly breaking down and crying after he heard the news like a prophet who had just received a vision from God.
Eric Lerner, author of The Big Bang Never Happened, wrote, “One of the most destructive features of the methodology of the big bang is that it conveys the idea that only people versed in extremely complicated mathematics can understand the universe… This is, of course, the argument of the emperor’s new clothes. If you can’t see the emperor’s new clothes you must be either stupid or incompetent.” This is how high priests of cults control people.
The Big Bang theory is based on the idea that redshift of cosmic bodies indicates both their distance from Earth and the speed at which they are receding. Although that idea is credited to Edwin Hubble, Hubble never believed it. He suspected redshift was an intrinsic property of matter. Examining the universe from the redshift-indicates-distance perspective creates the bizarre impression that all galactic clusters in the universe are pointing toward Earth in an artifact called the Fingers of God. This harkens back to the old Church dogma that the Earth is the center of the universe and should dissuade any real scientist from supporting the redshift theory.
Astronomer Halton Arp catalogued a number of objects in the sky with high redshift that are closer to the Earth than low redshift objects behind them. Just one such observation falsifies the theory that redshift indicates distance, yet the Big Bang cultists ignore those observations. Arp was so dangerous to them, they denied him telescope access and blackballed him.
Thornhill describes the plasma signature the researchers really discovered, “The evidence is available that shows the ‘cosmic microwave background’ (CMB) radiation is not ‘background’ at all. It is a local radio ‘fog’ from interacting Birkeland filaments within the Milky Way.”
Ultimately, the Big Bang cult is about stealing taxpayers’ money. Thanks to these headlines, Guth and the researchers who made the announcement will enjoy a big, taxpayer-funded payday. Because of the publicity, government will shower money on all the priests of the Big Bang cult. Like Arp, anybody who exposes the cult will be cut off from the taxpayer gravy train and impoverished. The livelihoods of these priests depend on promoting the Big Bang lie, and as long as government has an effective monopoly on funding science, it will pour taxpayers’ money down the Big Bang rathole.

Keystone Kops Lose Malaysia Flight 370

As of this writing, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been missing for more than a week. It’s like Lost in real life. The circus surrounding the search would be hilarious if 239 lives weren’t at stake. The government agents in control can’t even say if the jet crashed or landed safely, let alone where. From the perspective of the private sector that most of us live in, this fiasco appears astonishingly incompetent. Unfortunately, it’s not incompetence. This fiasco illustrates the inherent irrationality of socialism which creates such outrageous, systemic failures.
The airline industry all around the world is socialist. Some governments, like the US, allow nominally private ownership of airlines, but those airlines are controlled through overwhelming regulation, and therefore effectively owned by the government. Airports, air traffic control, security and whatnot are outright owned by the government. Because of this, the airline industry is primitive and dysfunctional. The loss of Flight 370 highlights how primitive and dysfunctional it is.
The inherent problem with socialism is government agents, because they don’t sell a product, cannot perform economic calculation. They have no prices, profits or losses to guide their decisions. Therefore they have no way to rationally value goods or services. For example, National Security Agency agents can locate your cell phone, and therefore you, with a few keystrokes, but the government can’t locate a multi-million dollar airliner with 239 people on board. That’s because, since government agents can’t rationally assign values to goods, they use self-serving political motives to direct their resources. Politically, our rulers value tracking the people because they loot the people like milk cows, and the people have the power to resist their looting and withdraw consent like in Egypt, Ukraine and many other countries recently. Since airlines, like all giant corporations, are created by the government and either implicitly or explicitly owned by the government, they pose no danger to our rulers. Therefore airliners need not be tracked in real time.
The Guardian highlights this absurdity, “The ongoing mystery of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is the fault of a bizarre quirk in our networked society. Even cars have broadband connectivity now, but the modern jet airliner – perhaps our most technologically evolved mode of transport – still exists in the age of radio.” Primitive.
Author Charles Hugh Smith considers the perverse motives behind confusing and contradictory statements by the Malaysian government, “What is the agenda driving their evasion? What is known is that Malaysian security is obviously lax. This fact has caused Malaysian authorities to lose face, i.e. be humiliated on the global stage. Malaysia is an Asian nation, and maintaining face in Asia is of critical importance. We can conclude that one reason the Malaysian authorities are dissembling is to hide their gross incompetence.
“It is also suspected that Malaysia is a safe haven for potentially dangerous Islamic groups. (Follow the threads from Pakistan's secret nuclear proliferation program to Malaysia for documentation of this possibility.) The Malaysian government may have an informal quid pro quo along these lines: you are welcome to set up shop as long as you don't cause any trouble here or do anything to cause Malaysia to lose face.”
In Socialist World, finding the plane and the people on board is way down the list of priorities, so taxpayers’ money is squandered on worthless searches. Smith identifies similar priority conflicts for the US government, “The Strait of Malacca [between western Malaysia and Indonesia] is a key shipping lanes chokepoint, and is thus of strategic interest to the U.S. and other nations with space-based assets. U.S. authorities have already revealed that U.S. coverage of the area is ‘thorough.’
“This confirms that U.S. communications monitoring and space-based assets cover the seas around the Strait of Malacca. Given what is known about these monitoring and space-based assets, it is likely that the U.S. intelligence agencies have additional data but are not revealing them, as this would provide direct evidence of U.S. capabilities.” Dysfunctional.
It’s not incompetence. Lacking economic calculation, socialists can’t value the lost people and plane as highly as people in the private sector do, so they behave irrationally. Additionally, these socialists have nothing at risk. Whether they find the plane or not, and no matter how long it takes, they still get paid. Lacking economic incentive, they’re driven by political motivations.
Imagine if we had a free market in air travel. Airliners full of people are the most valuable asset owned by airlines, so keeping them safe would be top priority. A fiasco like this could mean bankruptcy, therefore airlines would employ modern technology in unpredictably innovative ways to track airliners and their status in real time. Somebody would have been notified the minute Flight 370 veered off course. The airline would have contacted the plane or sent chase planes after it. Its location and status, even if it crashed, would be known at all times. Rescue resources would be optimized to save lives. Air travel would be safer, cheaper and pleasant. That’s how it should be.

Tax breaks bring Cate Blanchett film to Cincinnati

This year’s best actress Oscar winner Cate Blanchett is coming to Cincinnati to film a new movie titled Carol. The film will also star Rooney Mara, known for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Sarah Paulson, best known for Oscar winner 12 Years a Slave and TV’s American Horror Story, and Kyle Chandler from TV’s Friday Night Lights. Todd Haynes will direct.
This is a great opportunity for people in Southwest Ohio. The entire film will be filmed in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission called for 700 extras to be cast locally. Also, since the film takes place in 1950s New York, the producers called for 1950s background cars for the film. That should excite people in this car town. This is a big deal. It’s like Hollywood is coming to Southwest Ohio. reports tax breaks brought the movie to Cincinnati, “Carol was awarded an Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit by the Ohio Film Office, which announced the project today along with the Greater Cincinnati Film Commission.”
For those people who don’t realize taxes harm businesses and kill jobs, the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit proves otherwise. In 2011, Cleveland’s Newsnet5 documented, “The spotlight may be on Hollywood, but the Ohio film industry continues to grow as Ohio's Motion Picture Tax Credit secures more productions. According to the Ohio Film Office, five new projects will bring in anticipated revenue of more than $17.1 million for Ohio.” In 2010, noted, “The tally in the first year of Ohio's film tax credit is nine movies and at least one new resident. ” The Ohio Film Office describes the credit, “The Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit provides a refundable tax credit that equals 25 percent off in-state spend and non-resident wages and 35 percent in Ohio resident wages on eligible productions.” This tax break brings new business into the state, boosts local businesses and benefits all Ohioans. It also creates lasting business connections and opportunities that continue to boost our economy over time. In addition, it increases tax revenue. Too many people don’t understand that. That’s it’s only downside.
Ohioans aren’t the only people attracting business out of Hollywood with tax incentives. Variety reports Hollywood continues to flee California at an alarming rate “despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other states such as New York, which offers $420 million a year in credits for 30% of production costs.” The secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor feared Hollywood is turning into Detroit and for the same reasons: high taxes and oppressive labor unions.
Tax breaks, best of all tax cuts, don’t only benefit the film industry. New York attracted The Tonight Show from California with a $20 million a year tax break. And they don’t just benefit the entertainment industry. They benefit all businesses. Fuyao Glass Industry Group considered moving someplace besides Moraine despite the market forces that made Moraine an ideal location until JobsOhio promised undisclosed - meaning really big - tax incentives.
Politicians only offer tax breaks to big businesses - plutocrats and cronies  - but the people of Dayton are legally scheduled to receive a significant tax cut. 0.5 percent of Dayton’s 2.25 percent income tax expires this year. That would give every worker and business owner in Dayton a 22 percent income tax cut. As Ohio’s movie tax break illustrates, that will bring new business to Dayton. It will also immediately make existing businesses more profitable. It will make every worker in Dayton wealthier. It will create productive jobs. It will improve the lives of everybody in and around Dayton. The boost in business would also increase tax revenue for the city, its only downside.
But Mayor Whaley doesn’t want the people of Dayton to be wealthier. She doesn’t want Dayton’s economy to improve. She wants her stolen money. She wants voters to make that 0.5 percent, business-killing income tax permanent in an election at the beginning of May. Whaley supports Detroit-style taxes and labor unions. We know how that ended up for Detroit.
If the government did nothing, we’d all become instantly wealthier. Because the tax is set to automatically expire, Dayton’s economy would instantly improve. Instead of allowing that to happen, Whaley and her cronies are forcing a vote for a new, permanent tax to replace the temporary one that’s done so much harm. Dayton’s minority governing cabal hid the permanent tax behind confusing ballot language, but they will come out in force to vote for it in a traditionally low turnout election they hope nobody else shows up for.
So tell your family, tell your friends, tell your neighbors. This is our one chance to win a tax cut that long-suffering Daytonians desperately need, but it can only happen if the people come out in force at the beginning of May to vote against the ruling cabal’s legalized theft of our incomes.
