Taxes

15 04 2008

I’m getting rammed in the ass yet again this tax season, this time owing the federal and DC governments over $1,000 in fucking goddamn taxes in addition to the withholding I already have to put up with.

Figure 1: All of us

The second most rage-inducing day of the year for most salaried Americans is the day they look at their W-2s and see exactly how much the government is taking out of their incomes. The number one rage-inducing day comes the day right after that, when you realize what the federal and local governments are doing with your stolen money:

  • Unleashing entire congressional committees on baseball players for steroid use, as if anyone gives a shit
  • Spending $255 million PER DAY on a bogus and unwinnable war in Iraq, much of which the Pentagon freely admits to wasting
  • Spending $67 million PER DAY on a bogus and unwinnable war in Afghanistan that, for some odd reason, nobody is fucking talking about anymore
  • Pretending to chase Osama Bin Laden through the mountains of Pakistan/Afghanistan when, in all likelihood, he’s getting a hummer from Jenna Bush in the White House as I type
  • Giving the Department of Homeland Security a $46.4 billion budget for 2008, nearly all of which will be wasted. I once worked a DHS contract with Lockheed Martin that billed 11,000 man-hours in 13 months at an average of $120 per hour. Not a single deliverable had been produced by the time I got fed up and left Lockheed to work with private and non-profit clients. No one was ever fired as a result of any of this.

I could go on forever.

Figure 2: This cat, like the IRS, should not exist

What amazes me about American political leadership is this:

  • Bill Clinton lies under oath in civil deposition regarding a sex scandal, and is impeached
  • George W. Bush starts ‘pre-emptive’ wars on multiple fronts after orchestrating attacks on the WTC and Pentagon*, runs the federal deficit into the TRILLIONS of dollars, allows thousands of American soldiers and HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF IRAQIS to die under false pretenses, withdraws from the Kyoto protocol and claims global warming “ain’t happenin'” while proposing manned missions to Mars for some fucking reason, and single handedly drives the American economy face-first into the ground while sitting over TWO recessions during his term…AND THIS DUDE IS BARELY BEING QUESTIONED ABOUT IT WHEN HE SHOULD BE TRIED FOR WAR CRIMES, NOT TO EVEN MENTION IMPEACHMENT!

What’s more, MY FUCKING TAX DOLLARS ARE PAYING FOR THIS SHIT

Personally, I believe in reparations, but not in the traditional sense. I don’t want a giant lump sum of inflation adjusted dollars for the forced labor of my ancestors distributed evenly among hard working black people who’d put the money to good use and stupid ass black people who should be lit on fire.

Figure 3: Somebody gimme a match…

I simply believe that reparations should consist of the following:

1. If you a.) are black, b.) can prove your direct descent from a black American slave, and c.) can prove the victimization of a direct ancestor by Jim Crow in the south or de facto segregation in the north within two generations – you never ever have to pay income taxes again

2. If you a.) are Native Amercian and b.) can INDIVIDUALLY prove a Native blood quantum of 1/4 or higher – you never ever have to pay income taxes again

This, of course, will never happen.

Instead, I have to sit here fuming at the big red font on Turbo Tax that says “Federal Tax Due: $1,014.98” while suppressing the urge to smash my head through the monitor.

*In general I am not a conspiracy nut, but I believe wholeheartedly in the 911 conspiracy. People tell me I’m nuts to think that Bush would kill thousands of American citizens just to get his hands on more oil/money and to tighten his authoritarian grip on the country. I tell people that they’re nuts for not believing he’d kill a whole lot more American citizens for a whole lot less. This is because I believe George W. Bush and those in his inner circle to be genuinely evil people in the classic, polarized, and unequivocal sense of the term ‘genuine evil’ that you see in the villains of cartoons like He-Man. History has shown that there is no limit to what evil white people will do to get what they want.

Luckily, I dont owe this year. But I am still trying to understand why more than 4024 men and women US soldiers are dead. What are we fighting for again? How did we shift from Afghanistan to Iraq? WHY are we still there? WHY am I still paying for this? WHY THE FUCK IS GAS THREE DOLLARS AND CHANGE FOR ONE GALLON?!!! AND RISING??!! And why is my “stimulus” only $300? If you want to stimulate the economy, lower gas prices to the 1989 prices for a month.

I owed taxes one year, I was livid. Even with my second job’s W-4 allowances being set to ‘0’ they still found a way to tell me ‘we’re not taking enough money from you, this is how much you owe’. I want to see the formula they use to come up with this shit, i mean really.

I knew today would be taxes, or tourists (both evil). This year is the first time I owe and I’m PISSED. I’ve been taxed about $5000 this year, and I owe?! I should pull a Wesley Snipes.

Oh, and I agree w/ the 911 thing. Living in NY that is something I don’t think I’ll EVER get over. I really felt my mortality that day. Looking out my window and seeing that. Seeing the footage of people dropping to the ground, LIVE. All while this motherfather reads Go Goat Go with some kids… even before Michael Moore came out w/ Farenheit 9/11 I had my doubts about what really went on and what we were being told..

Chris maybe you should freelance so you don’t have to report your income… You just have to join a freelance union to get health benefits.

As far as the tax break, that will never happen because “Bush (the gov in general) does not care about black people”… Kidding. (sort of) But we all seen what happened during hurricane season a few years back. We can barely get a break on a home loan so if there was such a break it would only be granted to a very small pool. I think I may have read somewhere that a few blacks actually have gotten reparations. I may be wrong though.

And the only native americans they care about are the Cherokee and a few from Canada (french). Even the breaks they give now aren’t for everyone. I applied for a tribe card thinking that I could go to school for free (if youre at least you are 1/4 Native american *from certain tribes* you can get a free college education at any approved school courtesy of the grand ol’ USA ), but quickly learned I can only get $2500 a year because the Choctaw are only worth that much.

MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS RISING ON THIS ONE.

Hate to beat a dead horse but this a good read:

“Somebody Blew Up America by Amiri Baraka”
http://www.amiribaraka.com/blew.html

That shit is no conspiracy theory, it’s common sense. How the hell, does a plane crash into the top of one of the strongest buildings in the world and bring the whole thing down, then causes another building down the street with federal records to explode. Please. An airplane crashed into a building over on the east side of 96th street about a year ago, it didnt come down. It caused a fire within the area it hit.
An airplane hits the pentagon doesn’t knock down anything it;s path not even a lamp post and leaves a perfectly round hole in the side of the building. And there were no huge chunks of big ass airplane laying on the front lawn, That makes sense.

“Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword.
It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. . . .
And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry.
Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so.
How do I know?

For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar. ”

“Terrorist” blow up the WTC and now the cops have the right to search my purse at random. 😐
I’m convinced this is why the French hate Americans. People love to say “oh the American people are different than the American government”. Bullshit. If Bush were a French leader the people would have taken to the streets stormed the capital and had his head on a stick. We let our leaders get away all kinds evil demonic bullshit, because we’re a spoiled people to concerned with comfort.
Reparations:

How about we just get the same freakin break on bank loans as immigrants to start our own businesses. If I have to see someone slinging relaxer and skin bleaching cream in the hood, I’d prefer it be a Sister rather than some Korean man.

Or maybe at least have the DOE in NYC distribute funds equally to Public school, based on the number of children being served and not the income taxes bracket in the community.

How about we get a break on freaking Government Student loans.

How about we band Weezy from the air waves. Lock him in a room and make him listen to Yani

Daaaaaaamn, you would think we’re bitter.

I would personally like to shove my bitter foot right up the mangina of at least half a dozen government officials and politicians. And that’s just before my third cup of coffee today. That’s the kind of reperations that all of us should be entitled to and yes! on the no income tax for slave descendants and natives done over and over and then over yet again by the policies of this country.

Oh great. Now I gotta go out and do more voter canvassing while choking down my rage. Thx bunches, kisskiss.

“If I have to see someone slinging relaxer and skin bleaching cream in the hood, I’d prefer it be a Sister rather than some Korean man. ”

Amen to that. There’s some special(don’t remember, else I’d link it) I caught on youtube about the “beauty-care” ,”ethnic product” business and how 99% of the profits from it goes to Koreans since most products/shops are Korean owned.

Anmarie for president!!!!!!

It breaks my heart to know that sisters are STILL using skin bleaching products. After decades and decades and decades of not seeing a single solitary Black woman go from dark or medium to light, why do they think this is possible? I am gonna start selling these women magic mullato beans or some shit. Show them a picture of my mom at 23 and tell them it’s me last year, and now I am ten shades lighter.

All of your reparation ideas are great, but there is one fundamental flaw: they would require the government to WANT Black and Native American people to succeed and florish, which may *kinda* hinder the current plan, which is to ensure that we self-destruct.

COSIGN TO ALL POSTS.

I am having a particular “I hate The Man” moment today, so this post was right on time. And yes, reparations would be a fantastic thing – I personally am contemplating an investigation as to whether my people were tobacco or cotton workers (if so, that’s grounds for a lawsuit, right, lol?) – but unfortunately I don’t think I could stand to see what large lump sums of money would turn (some) of our people into. People shoulda got on board with Malcolm when he was on his tip about separatism – I don’t think people realized how badly integration fucked us over in some senses…but you know what they say, “I love niggas; I love niggas, ’cause niggas are me, and I can only love that which is me…but if there is one thing I don’t love about niggas; niggas are scared of revolution.”

Sidebar: I HATE 50 CENT FOR CHOPPING UP SUCH A CLASSIC AND POWERFUL POLITICAL STATEMENT TO START THAT SHITTY-ASS SONG “IN DA CLUB” OR WHATEVER THE FUCK IT’S CALLED. NOW YOU HAVE MINDLESS DICKHEADS WALKING AROUND TALKING ABOUT, “I LOVE NIGGAS.” FUCK HIM, MAN!

“After decades and decades and decades of not seeing a single solitary Black woman go from dark or medium to light, why do they think this is possible?”

Ahh Sista Toldja but it is possible… in Ghana such women are called “fanta face, coca-cola body” Their face is bleached out to be much lighter than the rest of their body…dunno, maybe they ran out of cream. The reason most women give (in interviews, for the subject has been beaten to death there) for this habit is that men are more attracted to a lighter complexion. Dunno if the men are still attracted once the clothes come off, maybe the lights go off too at that point.

@Sista toldja
True. But I think the gov has been far more generous to the NA’s than to blacks. Many Native American tribes actually have gotten their reparations. There was a big deal when the Cherokee got theirs because Black tribe members from the CN were not included. The same thing happened to Black Seminoles. That tribe got there reparations AFTER they excommunicated the black memebers.
The US gave $$$, loans, grants, scholarships, tax free businesses etc. to certain Native tribes, but deliberately made sure that black decendants could not participate. Maybe one day it will change. There are alot of law suits going on in the US and I know Haiti is suing France for the same thing.

“History has shown that there is no limit to what evil white people will do to get what they want.”

I say this all the time – usually in class (did I mention I go to Ivy Leage Univ. of Penn?) – and people look astounded. I often wonder what history books THEY are reading, because clearly the history of the world as we learn it is nothing more than the rape and pillaging of other people’s and nations for the white man’s profit. So ruthless are they that they even turn against each other – Crusades, Inquisition, Holocaust, etc. WWI and WWII were both White men wars. How isn’t this obvious???

15 04 2008
Sister Toldja

@ Grimm- Oh, they definitely got more, but they also made sure there were only 5 NAs alive to get it.

@ Maya- I am confused….what is the sample used on “In The Club”?

15 04 2008
Sister Toldja

@ Machete- I have heard that phrase before, but I wouldn’t call that “working”, as it is 1) creepy and 2) what the fuck. And the women don’t turn a natural shade of light brown, they have a scary yellow face.

15 04 2008
thebusinesswoman

Here’s an idea-

Seeing as how paying taxes through withholding is simply giving the government an interest free loan, you might try to deduct the money yourself from every paycheck and put it into a high interest yielding savings account and when tax time comes around, you can pay your taxes and keep the extra couple hundred you made, for yourself.

Even better… if you can, put the money in a 12 month CD that pays a higher percentage, and then keep that excess after you pay your bill.

My mom taught me about that, and this year I made $211, it aint much ( cause I owed 4g’s), but it softened the blow a bit

More good news- If you take the time to start a (cough) company. Go to your county registrar’s office and file a DBA (doing business as), it cost like $22 to register your (cough) company. With that, you can legally not pay taxes for about five years with no penalty. You would just chalk it up to business losses ( be prepared to show some type of information should you get audited of course, but that is fairly simple to produce). After five years, a business that doesn’t turn a profit is considered a hobby and thus the tax free-ness ceases.

Or you could REALLY go into business for your self doing whatever and take the most random deductions from your 1099 income. Take all your friends out to eat and consider it a business expense, deduct gas mileage, all that.

Just a thought people 😉

The sample is used in the very beginning when the guy says “I looove niggas. I looove niggas, ’cause niggas are meeee!” Then the beat drops. It’s completely misleading and has nothing to do with the original song’s actual purpose. AT ALL.

The original is by The Last Poets, a 1960s spoken word group. (Also featured more recently on Common’s “The Corner). The sample erroneously used on 50’s song is from a song called “Niggas Are Scared of Revolution.” They also did that song, “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.”

I’m sure it’s on YouTube. I wish I could listen to it now. Ugh.

No.

Go to Pine Ridge or most other reservations and Indian ranches and look at the squalid third-world conditions those people live in. Many of them don’t even have running water, and rely on BIA food suppliments of flour and sugar just to survive. There’s a reason why tribes all over the midwest and southwest are sporting diabetes rates above 80 frggin percent. I’m sure many of them would like to leave the rez but – GASP – if you’re off the rez long enough you lose your federal status as an Indian!!!! I AM NOT JOKING! WOOOOOO!!!!!!

Imagine if a black person left Harlem for two years, then the government declares them to no longer be legally black. That’s the kinda shit Indians have to put up with from the US gov’t. Generous my motherfucking ass.

The media’s done a splendid job of portraying rez Indians, and therefore all Indians, as being filthy-rich off casino money and other crap by pointing out the Pequots and Cherokees as a pan-Indian example. This is a fucking crock of shit as stank as saying all black people are rich because Diddy and Jay-Z drive Bentleys.

Stepping off the reservation, examine the untold thousands of half to full blooded Indians in the country who aren’t associated with a tribe (because their tribes were obliterated), and therefore can’t qualify for the programs you’ve mentioned because, unlike any other minority in the country, Indians have to PROVE that they’re Indian by showing enrollment in a state or federally recognized tribe. So if whitey murked your entire nation 300 years ago, or you’ve been off the rez too long…tough shit. I know guys who look like the fucking Redskins’ logo that can’t apply for SBA loans because they don’t have and can’t get a CDIB.

Black people, including myself, have a huge advantage when it comes to qualifying for minority programs: NOBODY demands you to PROVE your blackness, and your status as a black person in the eyes of the government can’t evaporate into thin fucking air because of Byzantine BIA policies.

I’m sorry, but having seen the issue of ‘government generosity’ firsthand from both the red side and the black side – black people have it made. The worst thing you can possibly be in this country from the standpoint of treatment by the government and the dominant society at large, is an Indian.

Exactly like that.

Sister T. I was just about to tell you it is true. But Machete beat me to it. You ever been in a situation where you didn’t know what was happening or you didn’t know what the people were talking about so you just say quiet and listen closely until you catch on. That’s what Ghana was like. So I’m walking around town everyday for a month and I keep seeing all these women with this weird discolored skin, It’s a funny looking shade of light brown but their lips are dark brown and under their eyes are dark. Their necks are blochy. I’ve seen all types of illnesses so far so I’m wondering if this some kind of third world affliction. Then my girl friend rolls her eyes and says “If I see another woman with a bleached up face” Shocked mouth open I reply: “That’s what’s wrong with her face!”
So bleaching works and looks crazy like a sickness!
That being said i have a old picture of my dark skin mother whom I resemeble. Hmmm Business Partner? MWAHAHAHA!

People spend MAD money on going to have this shit done. Do you know there are ways to tape your eyelids so that they look more pronounced? I’ve seen my roommate do this shit. “You’re so lucky, Maya. You have eyelids…you can put makeup on without having to do this.” Whaa?

Anmarie, maya, and company…

YES

Here is my opinion on this whole thing. Throughout history various methods of “crowd control” have been implemented on societies as means to ensure the concept of the “rich get richer and the poor get poorer.” The only thing that has changed has been the actual ways of implementation course.

Terrorism is one of the most popular methods of ensuring crowd control and is perfectly shown in todays society here (as seen with 9/11 and Bush making a loose justification for a war that benefits he and his fellow rich brethren). But you know what… the buck just doesn’t stop there when it comes to terrorism because quite frankly, throughout the history of this country itself, various acts of sheer malevolence has plagued all of the races… ranging from lynchings to burnings (burning of “witches” post lies and ignorance). These can ultimately be tied into (dare I say it) religion… which at one time (as another person has mentioned) was used as another scare tactic to control the crowd and ensure that the rich got richer and the poor got poorer.

Of course this isn’t what they teach you in history class and instead feed you what they want you to believe… just like what is shown on TV to ensure social engineering continues to keep smart people from outsmarting those who have money.

I could literally go on and on and on and on about various conspiracies… but I won’t (please save the “thank gods” and “I’m glad he’s shutting up). But its imperative to see the larger picture and think outside of the box. Unfortunately ~88% of this country doesn’t and therefore takes everything for face value.

Its all a hoodwink.

Ok, instead of reading today tangent, I’ve been cracking up at photos of obese animals (thanks to Fig. 2).
How the tangent went from Uncle Sam to reparations to member size baffles me, but here’s my two cents anyway :D. Has anyone read (actually read, not just look at pictures) the Kama Sutra; well it discusses how member length and a women’s depth should compliment one another for maximum pleasure. A huge man and a shallow woman won’t work basically, and vice versa. Well, it will work, just doesn’t offer the most pleasure for both parties.

Chris I gotta agree with you on this post except for your 9/11 conspiracy. I think that might be a bit much. However, having spent some time on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation here in good ol’ Idaho, you are right. The mistreatment of Indians vs. Blacks isn’t even close. You talked about getting back wages by virtue of having slave ancestry, you ought to be getting real estate from your Native American side.

Forget labor money, I would want reparations for all of the societal damage done during and since slavery! For the rape, and the splitting of families, and the mental anguish and abuse that was passed from generation to generation.

If the American Gov did anything with reparations, it should be free education for black youth in America. Keep the cash, I can get my own damn money, but let’s make it a little easier for our kids to get an education and free themselves of the slave mentality. That’s priceless.

@ Dom,

lol. it’s hilarious to watch, but you’ll be amazed at the reactions you get from people (black folk included). i love when black people sit silently in these discussions in the hopes of looking unaffected or negating my point. i also love when white kids throw their two cents in to support my point. it’s frustrating, though, because my professors usually don’t even want to go to bat with me, so they immediately change the topic, especially if the conversation has really gotten good.

and yeah, it’s an amazing quote…those are just the first lines and how the song ends, but if you hear the whole thing it will really make you want take sister toldja up on her offer to take out 50 cent. have you heard alicia keys theory on so-called gangster rap? it supports your speculation well.

@ Chris- I mentioned the exclusion of blacks from NA reparations because people like you and I know that black tribe members were not given the same treatment b/c like I said the gov didnt/doesnt care about black people. But on to my comment:

-I am fully aware of the hardships NA’s face. Wrong is wrong. I never said they were living in the lap of luxury. But as far as reparations go, the U.S. was generous to every group but blacks. Maybe you feel that generous is too strong of a word, so I’ll say payout instead. So, blacks deserve the same “payouts” NA’s received.

-Even though black people have made strides toward doing better over the years, the government has NEVER attempted to more than a shrug and an “oops!” to blacks but has paid monetary debts to NA’s, Jews and the Japanese, and apologized. That isn’t fair. I wouldn’t have qualified for Choctaw $$$ for being a black one, but I can get $$$ for school b/c im 1/4??

-Blacks (and many other groups) do not have to take a blood test to prove their blackness because unlike blacks in PR, DR, or Brazil, many blacks here can’t “pass”. The skin, nose, body shapes… you know they’re black.

-It is a shame that NA’s have are forced to live on reservations to remain in touch with their identity, but let us not forget that when blacks leave harlem for corporate america they must leave behind dreds, cornrows, or afro (even women), the “hood”, hell, anything stereotypically black because they will be deemed “unprofessional”. I have heard quite a few lement that they had to sacrifice their “blackness” to get the job/promotion/respect. It may not be the same, but many ethnic groups have to sacrifice their identities to suceed.

-There are many other groups that have yet to recover from what the US did to them-take a look a mexicans who live near the US border.

-We all know that there is poverty so bad in parts of the south where the average income is less than $10000 and there is no running water. These are not reservations.

-Once again I never said the NA’s have it made. I just know that even though blacks are a minority, our stats have disproportionate lows: blacks have the lowest IQ’s, males in college, access to health care, home equity and median incomes (even lower than Hispanics)

And disproportionate highs: AIDS/STDs/STIs, abortion, infant mortality, job loss, incarceration, chemical dependancy, smoking, diabetes, rates and death rates from heart disease, stroke and cancer.
We STILL suffer from those set backs. We deserve $$$ too. thats all im saying.

Even if it was offered for free it wouldnt help everyone. You have to want an education. I’m just going off the assumption that you mean higher learning. As far ask K-12, better learning conditions (ex: smaller class sizes, humane conditions) would help, but you still have to have that hunger for knowledge. The gov’t can’t help with that, but the parents can. They can make, perpetuate or break that mentality.

So…genitalia aside, on the tax thing, and at the risk of sounding like a child-hating womb-monger, part of the reason our tax code is so screwed up is because our government insists on giving tax credits to the wrong people. Can anyone explain to me why my resource-sapping parent friends (single or otherwise) get tax credits for bearing more greedy little children? The more kids, the more credits. As a single person without children, why is my tax liability greater than those who use more resources than I? Shouldn’t the people on the dole and people with large families have to pay more? That’d certainly be an incentive to have fewer children, which would also go a long way toward addressing the climate change and population issue. And let’s face it, most people nowadays don’t need kids anyway, leastways not the nutcases I meet.

A friend of mine just had a baby (she and hubby are both educated-but-unemployed) and she was actually bragging about all the subsidies and credits she’d get this year, while I’m praying I don’t owe. I wanted to burn her Bridge Card and pour her Juicy Juice down the drain. My other friend once told me he smashed his BM every day in her 9th month of pregnancy with their 2nd child so she’d pop before the end of the year and he’d have a bigger refund (it worked, btw). CNN has a story about how single parents cost taxpayers $112 billion each year, for kids they shouldn’t have even had in the first place. If I had kids, I’d expect to have to pay our fair share too. But right now I don’t, and the EIC just pisses me off. It means I’m paying a disporportionate share for a bunch of shit I don’t even cosign.

Our government, with its infinite lack of foresight, has decided to fool people into this completely backward and unsustainable tax code, and by extension way of life. Life ain’t f#(%!^g fair.

You’re right, not saying I’m for reparations, but what monetary value can you really place on suffering? I agree wholely with freeing ourselves of “the slave mentality” and psychological baggage. I support free education, as long as it’s reinforced at home – which isn’t a guarantee.

One thing I WILLLLL say about the Tax Code having studied tax law (Lawd knows why…booooring) is that the custodial parent is the ONLY one to get the tax credit…the govt basically said Screw the non-custodial parent, even though they pay child support, see thier children, and in some cases provide more financial support than the custodial parent. You dont get ish. I feel they should at least get 1/3 of the tax credit that the custodial parent gets.

Disclaimer: I feel this is unfair for those non-custodial parents who give a damn about thier children. Not JaQuan who dont wanna pay child support for his 6 kids. Im talking about involved fathers (or mothers) who dont have custody, pay A LOT willingly in child support and/or childcare, clothing, allowance, etc, and are truly there for thier children…it does not seem right to me.

As a guardian ad litem, I have seen some truly TRIFLING mothers who dont want the fathers to see the children, claim the children, AND then they get all that tax credit and go on shopping sprees (for themselves NOT the children). It happens more than we think and Im tired of people beating up on certain GOOD men who arent like that. There are some BAD moms too who love to throw out the “Im a single mom” argument, which should only be reserved for REAL single moms who give a damn about thier children…but I digress…

I knew it was only a matter of time before someone raised the issue of single parent households! When talking about taxes amd refunds it’s virtually inevitable. Im usually pretty passionate about this one, so I have to remind myself to breathe as I type.

In my opinion, the single parent epidemic goes hand in hand with the problem of blacks not attaining advanced degrees, or in many cases even high school diplomas. The gov’t cant make you learn or even give you
common sense, we need to do that as a people.

If it were 50-100 years ago, I’d say maybe the government might want to encourage people to have larger families, but those days are long gone, and they ain’t coming back. We can’t even manage the 300 million Americans (of all races) we currently have. At our present rate of consumption, 300 million Americans= about 2 billion non-Americans, regardless of race. Our current tax structure is indicative of severely flawed thinking. Like Chris mentioned with those bullshit carbon credits, the issue is our use of resources, and not wanting to curb our lifestyles or be inconvenienced to do actually do something about it. Period. Make it more expensive for them to have kids, and people might think twice before doing it.

So i suppose when/if you have kids and you now qualify for this credit you’re going to say ‘Oh, no thanks, I’m good’? Should we now force all unwed mothers to have an abortion so we don’t have to pay for these bastards? Or maybe force them to get a good paying job. Wait.. first we’d have to make daycare available/affordable for them.. daycare can run you like $200 – $400 per week depending on the kids age.. but we don’t want to pay for that.. and damn if they get credits.. so i guess we’ll just force them to get good paying jobs.. oh wait.. we’re right back where we started.

IMO it’s a spend money to make money sort of thing. What is easier/makes more sense. Giving the parents single and married a credit because it costs a lot of money to raise/feed/clothe these kids, so hopefully they’ll use it on their kids, or charge them more, which will probably send them seeking gov’t maid, which everyone pays for anyway.

And in certain cases families do pay more.. one example.. health care through the job. To cover an individual it could be very inexpensive, or maybe even free. To cover a family can cost an arm..

LOL at “Ann Marie” and anyone else who is dumb enough to believe that a large plane couldn’t take down a building.

You obviously have no concept of how jet fuel works or building construction for that matter. You also have no clue at what temperature steel melts at. Most structural steel (the kind they built the towers with) melts at around 1500-degrees. Jet fuel burns at its highest at 1800-degrees. Do the math, genius.

Those magical planes slammed into the buildings, dumped all of their remaining jet fuel down into the crevices of the structure, SEVERED the sprinkler pipe lines (leaving them useless) and caused the literal structural meltdown of both buildings from the top down.

Learn a little about building construction before you spout off like an idiot first. And if you don’t believe me ask any firefighter worth his helmet what happens when a building losing its sprinkler system and gets a giant, unstoppable fireball inside of it.

Yeah, America’s racist. We know that. But you know what? The entire rest of the world sees Black Americans as Americans first, even if we don’t. Blacks of other nationalities feel absolutely no affinity for us because of our common skin color (visit Africa or a Caribbean nation for proof…not cruises or resorts either, the hood) . As a group, we’re financially better off than Blacks anywhere else in the world. I’d go so far as to update the esteemed W.E.B. and say that class is the real issue, not color. These two have been linked for a long time in America, but as the middle-class buffer rapidly disappears, I suspect we’ll find ourselves confronted with a whole other range of issues that have less to do with race, and more to do with bread costing a dollar a slice.

Also, what do other people’s kids being expensive to raise have to do with anything? Can’t afford kids? Don’t have any.

for some reason i can’t do a link. but ya’ll have hella long comments so here:

Stimulus package dates announced.

——————————————————————————–

If you file your return on time and request that your federal income tax refund is directly deposited, the stimulus payments will directly go into your bank account by May 2 if the last two digits of your Social Security number are 00-20.

If the last two digits are 21-75, the date to remember is May 9.

If the last two digits are 76-99, you’d get that money by May 16.

But if you do not use direct deposit to get your federal income tax refund – or you are paying taxes owed when you file that 2007 return – you’re going to get your tax rebate check later. The rollout times are more complicated, too.

If your last two digits of your Social Security number are 00-09, you could expect that rebate check to be mailed by May 16.

It’s by May 23 if the last two digits are 10-18.

It’s May 30 if the digits are 19-25.

It’s June 6 if the digits are 26-38.

It’s June 13 if the digits are 39-51.

It’s June 20 if the digits are 52-63.

It’s June 27 if the digits are 64-75.

It’s July 4 if the digits are 76-87.

It’s by July 11 if the digits are 88 -99 and the person did not use direct deposit of a refund this year – or if you wrote a check to cover money owed for the 2007 tax year.

got that from the website.

Reading IS fundamental, where did I say i have to worry about day care, dead beat dads or anything like that. You were speaking on married couples and single parents right? We have no problem paying for anything our kids need, we’re not living check to check but I’d be lying if i said I dont appreciate the EIC, Daycare and what ever other credit they want to give us.

I know my fertility is in my own hands, but I wasn’t complaining about it, you were. Because people with kids get credits you equate that to not doing our share, granted that’s YOUR opinion, and this is mine. Get over it. We’re not having kids to piss you or any one else off, so why be penalized for it? It’s not against the law to procreate, and as far as I know this isn’t China.

Ugh, please don’t get me started on W.E.B DuBois. He’s such a complex individual…and I don’t think he realized how much his own class standing enabled him to do things. He was very much a part of the Talented Tenth that he believed in (and we should all aspire towards, conceptually) but DuBois’ life was not comparable to most other Blacks of his time, though I am not all discrediting the racism he experienced himself.

P.S>>why is this white boy in here announcing that Bill Cosby is making a rap album as though I or the other black girl in our office are supposed to care? Chris already offered to lie to the cops for me if I kill him, but I swear shit is about to be so real in here I’mma need to confess.

Fruity Pebble should be the next Hall of Rage-r. Anyone who hates children and Bill Cosby deserves to be in the Hall of Rage.
In comparison to a lot of other countries, our taxes aren’t THAT high ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_rates_around_the_world ). And I don’t mind that families get so-called breaks. They aren’t real breaks anyway, kids are expensive little parasites.
We are financially “better-off” than Blacks elsewhere because of a different economy built on the free labor that slavery provided. Well, that’s just one reason.

15 04 2008
Dom

But Sista, shouldn’t black adults be willing to sacrifice the few pennies (and compared to the amout of suffering its “paying for”, it will indeed be pennies) we’d get as reparations for the greater good of the people?

I hate to say this but we all know black people are some of the biggest cpnsumers in the world. Cut ‘Ty n them’ a check and those fools gonna spend it on rims and ice.

Black people will never see reparations in that form anyway, and it just seems wiser to ask for something thats a little more tangible than a big fat check for every black person in America. Make the gov pay for the education of future generations! And in the meantime, work on getting the youths mind right so they can benefit from it.

And yeah, Bill Cosby could have picked a better forum that included a mostly black audience. He’s writing books right? How about picking up a pen and writing an article for a well known black paper? Or a black magazine? Hell, the black evangelist on the street corner in the hood seems to have found an ALL black audience, so dont give me that! The fact that he choose a white audience and talked about poor black people as disparagingly as he did makes me call bullshit. He may care, but he was trying to make a joke that many people didnt find very funny.

Plus, evaluating the situation we see that Bill has a history of being elitist. Notice that he only gives money to “Good” black institutions like Spelman and Morehouse. Where were his millions when Morris Brown was going under? Does he donate to Tuskeegee, or FAMU? Hell no!

“kids are expensive little parasites.” You take your place in that Hall of Rage too. lol.

I dont mind the break as much as I mind if you are going to give one, give one equally to both parents. If we want to promote fatherhood, maybe knowing that you get a litte back might encourage them to quit running away from child support…maybe not…but its worth a small try.

I think people would be les mad at taxes, if the majority of the money was not wasted on BULL. I dont mind supporting arts programs, teachers salaries, safer roads, social security…I DO mind supporting stupid fact finding missions, wars that dont make since, and $5000 desks in the white house.

@KnaturalB: It’s not even that I hate kids. I work with kids, and I love children. It just burns me up when people whine about how expensive they are, as if they just randomly showed up on their doorstep one day. I should also mention this exchange is taking place after an exchange with a friend that just enraged me yesterday, so yeah maybe I’m a little touchy. Dude was shocked I don’t engage in routine, repeated unprotected sex, even after he had an extremely sweaty HIV test only last nonth. Ugh. That type of mentality is another level of infuriating, and it’s the same mentality keeping Maury and his Sapphires in business.

It also burns me up that we have a very backward tax policy replete with disproportionate penalties/credits. Percentage-wise, our biggest problem is our pointless monster of a defense budget (not social subsidies), which brings us back to Chris’s original point. That’s why I’M mad.

Even though you’ve ‘dismissed’ me I’d like a shot at understanding what you mean since I’m getting you wrong.

You said:

but at least they understand the value of discouraging overpopulation.

But I don’t get how you’re tying that and EIC and whatever other credits together. If you feel I’m ignorant, for not getting it, then that’s your opinion. One question, who exactly are you talking about? Teenage mothers? Unwed mothers? Divorced mothers or just all people with more than a certain number of kids? Or people with more kids than they can afford. People don’t have kids to further ruin the state of the human race, in a perfect world people would have kids cause they’re ready, they can afford them, etc, but that’s obviously not always the case. What I’m getting from you is that people with kids should be punished. I have a problem with that statement. If you were talking about someone who has kids for the sole reason of getting a govt check to get their hair & nails done, the newest jordan’s etc, then that’s a different story.

If you don’t want to answer that’s cool too, but i figure maybe it would make more sense if I knew what group of people you were specifically referring to, if any.

Fruity Pebble

@ Lady: If you disagree with that statement, remember that you made it.

People with children (and there are no qualifiers there so it means ALL people with children) should not be rewarded by paying a smaller percentage in taxes, which is what I understand a tax credit to be…reduced tax liability. Let me put it to you like this: If you and I are roommates in a 3 bedroom apartment, 2 of which are used by you and your child, should I be responsible for a disproportionately large share of the bills because you find it expensive to raise your kid? And please keep in mind that I’m using a general “you” here.

Any policy (tax or otherwise) that, in our current global situation, rewards or encourages people to continue to overpopulate and over-consume (and this does not just mean the US gov’t), is irresponsible and backward, plain and simple. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

And maybe “ignorant” was harsh…but this is a forum for angry black people and the people who love them, and today I qualify.

Do the TAX policies really encourage people to overpopulate? Is getting a tax break of a couple grand really equal to what you spend on Pampers, baby clothes, food, etc?

@Fruity Pebble, obviously I was being facetious when I said you hate children. I read that you work with orphans, which is admirable, so I obviously don’t believe you hate little ones. And neither do I, though I called them expensive little parasites. And I know that Slavery permeated other countries, not just the US. That’s why I said it’s just one of the factors that’s shaped our status as an economic powerhouse, thereby making us better off than other Blacks in the Western Hemisphere. But of course we could factor in cost-of-living, social regulations, trade, everything that makes a country richer than her neighbor – Slavery alone doesn’t do that.

You obviously have no concept of how jet fuel works or building construction for that matter. You also have no clue at what temperature steel melts at. Most structural steel (the kind they built the towers with) melts at around 1500-degrees. Jet fuel burns at its highest at 1800-degrees. Do the math, genius.”

First of all my name is Anmarie.

Secondly
Steel melts at around 1500 degrees Celsius yes which is well over 2500 deg F.

Jet Fuel burns it’s hottest at yes 1800 degrees F! that’s 980 deg. C

What are you doing comparing apples and oranges with me here?
Even if the buildings fall because of the jet fuel, can you explain to me, rocket scientist, exactly what happened to 7-WTC, and why this never happened before in history?
Why didn’t the Empire state building or any of the surrounding buildings crumble to the ground in 1945?

“At 9:49 a.m., the ten-ton, B-25 bomber smashed into the north side of the Empire State Building. The majority of the plane hit the 79th floor, creating a hole in the building eighteen feet wide and twenty feet high. The plane’s high-octane fuel exploded, hurtling flames down the side of the building and inside through hallways and stairwells all the way down to the 75th floor. ”

Getting a tax break certainly had nothing to do with my very deliberate decision to breed. One of the reasons I waited until my 30s to have kids was the cost of raising them, all the way to college and I wanted to make sure we were in a position to first. On the other hand, since I was so practical I am quite happy for the little bit of credit since I plan on ending up with citizens who work, pay taxes and contribute to the overhead that we all have access to. Roads, bridges, sewers, water, salaries for all the people who make all of it run.

When I go to a restaurant or retail store and make a purchase, I know I’m paying for the hard costs of the business itself in addition to the actual product. I’m quite tired but I think that my analogy can be made to stretch to fit my point if you pull on it a bit.

As far as the people who have unplanned and unprovided for children, my take is that since those kids are here then we should do our best to make sure they have access to real schools and real educations, real breakfast, lunch and dinner and at least a shot at knowing there’s a better way to live than government check to government check. Otherwise, what? We say “fuck ya, your mom was dumb enough to squirt you out, she can deal with you?” as though that’s going to solve anything?

I know that makes me sound dangerously close to being smelly hippy but I’m enough of a realist to see that whatever we’ve been doing sure the hell isn’t working well enough.

I vote “yes” to conspiracy – which includes this very nonsensical war we’re in. I believe Obama to be a foil character in this charade – thus the reason why we can’t (and have made no real attempt to) find someone 6’8″ tall in the middle of rocks and sand…who releases videos like mixtapes openly taunting Americans (not the government) to further distract the public, coupled with the excessive propaganda from the White House. Conspiracy for this whole plan (“Operation Avenge Daddy Bush”) encompasses everything that’s gone down right in front of our eyes, including the fact that there are no WMD – all these people need was an excuse (and you know how white folk love invading shit) Black people disagreed with this shit from jump…and now everyone wants out (cause you know how white people hate feeling outsmarted.) As Angry pointed out, this shit has completely derailed from its starting point – finding bin Laden and moving Al Queda cells from Afghanistan – to some whole other shit about killing Hussein and proliferation democracy… While bin Laden & co. remain “at large,” the reason why this shit is falling apart is because the co-conspirators (Bush, et al.) are a bunch of fucking dumbasses who didn’t do their homework.

I think the key thing to examine as well is the whole Afghanistan vs. Iraq thing…when we were attacked on 9/11, the world rallied around America. We had 20+ nations committing combat forces and support to the efforts in Afghanistan, including Germany and France. When we decided Iraq was next….coincidentally everybody except the Brits pretty much backed out – the British because Tony Blair was pretty much a sycophant for anything we want to do (look historically – Tony Blair was a yes-man for every single decision, dating back in the 90s as well.)

Also, ahem. While I am quite willing to jump on the white guy, take that how you wish, I am enough of a shit stirrer to point out that he is not alone in savage colonisation of other peoples. Hello, Tibet, anyone? Manchuria? The Japanese made the Koreans their bitches for real, forbade their language, forced labour without pay, literally took away their names and gave them new ones in the master language. Familiar much? I used to know what was left of a family that escaped the Khmer and well, that shit was fucking diabolical. Fucking Pol Pot did not deserve to die in his sleep and I do pray that his karma will be interesting.

My point is that there have been several brute dominant cultures that committed mass exterminations and subjugation, who weren’t white so I’m just willing to say that there is something in the water when it comes to the power of evil and the evil in pursuit of power.

The nazis were incredibly efficient and put technology to use in their extermination and the english were diabolical with their blankets and the colonials were fucking greedy dickchokes in their perpetuation of stealing, packaging humans as livestock, and then buying, selling, trading and using them but good lord, it’s not BECAUSE they were white. It’s because they wanted to and they could and they had superior numbers and weapons. It’s what makes Billy Bob clench his asscheeks in fear at the possibility that a black man could end up in control of the red button and be tempted to turn those missiles ….. around. Mooo hahahaha, etc. In his gut, he knows that we all are capable of going there, regardless of our race. Plus, the little matter of knowing that payback can be the biggest bitch of all.

I know thats right Nina!! I itemized and laughed all the way to the bank.

Here’s a helpful tip to you homeowners: If you are planning on purchasing a new car, have the bank finance it WITH on your HOME LOAN. Not only will you get basically the same interest rate as the dealer, but the interest that you pay on the car is lumped in with the interest that you pay on your house, which we know we get credits for. So instead of just paying and losing out on the interest, you get it. Just a little tip my trust fund baby friends taught me. Apparently rich white people do this all the time. You still make two payments, and everything is seperate except for the interest, so you dont lose equity on your house.

White people have money, and they know how to keep it and make it accrue more money. We should do the same thing.

Taxes: I just don’t understand it…Just take out what you need and leave me the eff alone, why do I have to RE-report to you what I made for the previous year when you already have my infomation? A complete clusterfuck every GD year with the taxman! I owed from a previous year and they sure took every penny that I owe too, real quick, no questions asked, just a letter saying, “Hey no money for you, loser…we took what you owe”…PISSED!

The only joy I get is when I see the tax-evasionist standoffs on the news! Those folks are gangsta! They live in the woods somewhere and haven’t paid taxes for 20 years and yet they fight and fight, for like months or until they can’t take sitting in a cold dark house anymore which really pissing the IRS off, in turn putting a smile on my face!

TAXMAN GO SCREW!!!

Damn loved this post. Taxes are fuckin me and my soon to be husband in the fucking ass. We did our taxes this weekend too. I owe 1,000 and so does he. I work my ass off everyday so the goverment blue bellies can take my fucking money and buy fancy boats and nuclear war heads. SMH. As for Bush that assclown is nothing but a joke. And I must agree with Chris on the whole 911 thing he probably paid the suicide bombers to crash in the bulidings. And then has the nerve to send our troops to iraq for what? Not a damn thing. Ok they found Saddam in a poop hole but they can’t find Binladen? yea right Binladen probably Bush’s homeboy from back in the day. How can’t you find a 7 foot tall diabetic among short ppl?!! I dont get it.

1. If you a.) are black, b.) can prove your direct descent from a black American slave, and c.) can prove the victimization of a direct ancestor by Jim Crow in the south or de facto segregation in the north within two generations – you never ever have to pay income taxes again

That would be freaking sweet! But that will never happen in a million yrs. Not as long as white ppl are in charge.

Editor’s Note: so…I wrote this post before I added my Sched K-1 for the company my brother and I own. Uncle Sam, it turns out, will be paying me about $1,100.

Still, fuck the goddamn IRS.

The war in Afghanistan is not bogus. That is all.

Esdotto, thank you for bringing this blog in my life, as it brings me great pleasure (he mentioned it on a site we both write for, blindiforthekids.com, not to be confused with my personal jawn, the beautifulstruggler.blogspot.com ). I know you are military…..so, I’ma just wink at you and say “Yeah, not bogus at ALL! I know! Hey, did you know my cousin was in jail with Akon? Yeah. Akon is a thug.” And then I’m gonna wink again. In that really conspicuous way where everyone knows I’m lying.

Esdotto

uh oh, we may have a case of mistaken identity. I’ve never heard of either of those sites (the second link didn’t work for me.) maybe you have me confused with some other s dot.

i assure you that i did not make my last comment in jest. i would argue that Afghanistan is the most clear cut case of national defense since Pearl Harbor led to WWII.

i am not ignorant of the socio/geopolitical and religious differences. that being said, we were attacked in both, and responded in both. How is that bogus?

Sister Toldja

Oh. Last time, when I asked you if you were S*Dot, you said yes….I thought you meant you were the S*Dot I know. And I knew you weren’t jesting, I was being patronizing (not to be confused with patriotic 😉 )

Not getting in to this arguement, buddy! God bless and stay safe.

The war against Iraq was not about stealing their oil. You people on here need to get a grip. The war was fought on behalf of Israel.
Look up the history of the Neocons.

I am a white male. I owe none of you anything.

No you know what… fuck this… I am angry today and I’m in the mood to sun someone out here.

Death… you need to look at the bigger picture and get a grip yourself. Wars are fought for multiple reasons… NOT just one. Yes the war was over oil… and yes it probably did involve the tensions between Israel and Palestine… thus diverting the attention away from Israel since Ariel Sharone had done such a wonderful job of doing the polar opposite. But how about that economy? When the war first started, tax dollars were flowing into the pockets of contractors like water flowing into a pitcher. I bet you didn’t even bother to think of that there.

How about setting up a strategic interception point which cuts off the trade between Russia and the other countries like Syria and Jordan? I bet you didn’t even consider the fact that we have troops there either?

How about this war was a method of testing some of the newest weapons that have been in the development phase for the past 20 years?

What about the gentleman’s deals that were performed behind closed doors to lure other countries (namely England) into this war. Did you ever think about the fact that Amaco was sold to the British at an undercut rate… which the Brits made out like gang busters on by helping to raise the cost of oil. OUR oil that is drilled out of Alaska?

There are probably numerous other reasons why this war is going on that doesn’t get discussed on the news and probably will never get thrown into the history books… just like your wonderful “thousand years” war between Palestine and Israel. So don’t come up in here talking about “I’m white… I know all… you know nothing niggers” because your foolish pasty behind is just a stupid as the rest of the 88% in this country.

Fuck you.

“I should pull a Wesley Snipes.” – me, last Tuesday. Nevermind. They gave Our barometer of darkness three years in prison for tax fraud but acquitted three of NYPD’s finest (one of which emptied two full magazines) for shooting Sean Bell? I’m confused.

Did anybody else notice that when anyone mentions reparations every white person that you know of in a 100 mile radius feels like some black fool is going to run up on his doorstep and ask for some money out of his pocket?

How much subconcious prejudice are you holding onto that the comments would ruffle you enough that you needed to insert “i’m white and i don’t owe you anything” into the conversation?

do we know you?
do you have black people asking you for money?
do you owe some black people money you haven’t paid back?

if not, shut that silly shit up about owing somebody something. you owe your mind and mouth an apology for filling it with bullshit!

I’m so over all the stupid prejudice, ignorant shit that i’ve heard and seen today!

Great post. I hate getting my W-2s, I hate looking at my paystubs, and I hate filing. It actually angers me. When I filed this year, my (new) accountant asked me “How come you look so serious and rigid?” I said something to the effect of “I usually get fucked around this time of year.”

By the way, one of the soldiers killed in Iraq was a friend of mine – my close friend’s brother. 4 days after he was murdered by Bush, a very short blurb on the news that no one else noticed (probably) stated that there were no weapons of mass destruction found after that long investigation.

Your views on reparations sound like commonsense to me.

The 9/11 conspiracy sounds interesting but doesn’t actually hold up; it’s contingent upon there being bombs that blew up various WTC buildings, but the evidence used to support that theory doesn’t hold water.

“A plane couldn’t have gotten the buildings hot enough for the steel to melt! There must have been a bomb!”

Yeah, um, but it didn’t need to be hot enough to melt. The steel just had to be hot enough to get weak – not to melt. That’s why lots of funkily bent beams protruded from the wreckage and there weren’t dried puddles of steel.

Anyway, the conspiracy folks are off on this one. Sorry.

I wonder if you’re still bitching about all the extra taxes Obamacare and the various “stimuli” will cost?

Do you still support this Socialist tool?

Not that McCain would have been much better, but at least he wouldn’t have tried to take over the entire private sector.
