IngsocTo sell Obamacare to the public, payments to the IRS were billed as “not a tax” and it was billed as “not a tax” for a long time. Then came the Supreme Court challenge and the lawyers realized there was no way for the “law” to be upheld unless it was… a tax… so in the halls of the Court it was… a tax. But that hurdle has been cleared for some time and it’s back to appearance trumping substance. So when’s the last time you heard of the penalty to paid for not getting insurance (Obamacare or otherwise) described as a tax again (by someone other than a conservative).

The IRS is certainly not going to make that mistake. They they know who they serve. (Hint: It’s not the people, it’s the left.)

“If you (or any of your dependents) do not maintain coverage and do not qualify for an exemption, you will need to make an individual shared responsibility payment with your return.” — IRS Term for the Obamacare Mandate Tax

George Orwell’s Big Brother would be proud.


Meanwhile the “investigation” of IRS abuse continues…

This is the reason the IRS needs to go away… but then, that could be said about most government agencies.

Just in case you’re wondering; yes, Obama still thinks you are as dumb as dirt. With ten plus percent unemployment; with layoffs announced weekly/monthly; with higher bankruptcies, with home foreclosures continuing… Obama is happy to announce that his $787,000,000,000 porkulus package has “already created or saved up to 2 million jobs.”

Christina Romer, mouthpieces for this crap said, “That’s truly a stunning and important effect. It has done exactly what we have anticipated it would do….We are very much tracking what we anticipated.” This simply means that soon she and Obama will expect you to swallow that another 1.5 million jobs have been “saved or created” on top of this 2 million just announced. Why? Because Obama said earlier that 3.5 million would be “saved or created” overall; and that number will be reached no matter the statistical and/or mental contortions required.

In George Orwell’s classic 1984; the government of Big Brother would release announcements within hours of each other that were in direct contradiction to each other. There was never an explanation for the contradiction; it was understood by all that the original announcement never happened. Absolute photographic proof that the government was lying, held in the hand of protagonist, Winston Smith, meant nothing. Well actually, Winston’s belief in his own eyes and reasoning over the government propaganda; meant he was guilty of thought crime, but that’s another part of the story.

Obama expects nothing less than this sort of suspension of reasoning from his party and from his serfs. Ignore the facts, ignore what your reasoning tells you, ignore that I have set up a totally subjective system to prove my points and declare them facts. I have said it… it is your truth.

More truths you might expect to be handed down from upon high besides Obama having saved or created 2 million jobs… The unemployment rate has dropped to 10% and continues its steady decline since Obama took office… New hiring in green energy jobs have hit an all time high; training people to meet the demand for these high paying jobs is going on across the country (just not where you are, yet)… We have to pass health care reform quickly even through it doesn’t go into effect for years… Global warming is destroying the planet, we need cap and trade taxes now… The auto industry went bust because they didn’t build energy efficient tin cans the public clamors for…

For now, Obama and the liberals are content that the party and you the populace will simply ignore the contradictions and out-and-out lies. Having near complete control over the news media; they at least know their “facts” will never be challenged. However, they may eventually expect us to take it a step further as Big Brother did.

It was not enough for Winston to know the government was lying and ignore it. Big Bother demanded complete obedience. Winston had to train his mind to re-arrange and dispose of inconvenient facts; so that in the end the only reality was that dictated by Big Brother at that moment; no other possibility existed.

“We are at war with Eurasia. We have always been at war with Eurasia…. he (Winston) had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother”.
