Employers Allowed to Pocket your State Income Tax

Most people assume that states use their state income taxes to fund school systems, pave roads, fund state parks, pay for prisons or even provide low income housing. After all, when you pay taxes you expect the state to you expect them to provide a public service. However the truth is a little more insidious.

Per The Christian Science Monitor, “an ever increasing amount of those tax dollars aren’t funding services; they aren’t even getting to the state capital. Sixteen states now allow corporations to withhold state income taxes from employees and keep the money as an incentive to locate to or remain in a state. That means that, in effect, employees pay personal income tax to their company rather than their state government. (The 16 states are: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, and Utah.)

Pile of Money “A recent report from Good Jobs First entitled, “Paying Taxes to the Boss,” sheds light on how widespread this practice has grown. An estimated 2,700 companies now take advantage of this welfare system, fueling an economic war between states that costs employees an estimated $700 million a year in diverted tax income, the report concludes. Those who profit include corporate giants like Sears, Goldman Sachs, and General Electric.

“Illinois offers a special tax incentive that can divert up to 100 percent of withheld taxes into subsidies to encourage companies to locate or expand operations in Illinois when the companies are actively considering a competing location in another state.

“New Jersey’s Business Employment Incentive Program (BEIP) is among the most costly of these programs, with new grants totaling more than $73 million. Ohio and Kentucky top the list of states for the number of companies they subsidize through employee personal income tax withholding.

“The practice has been around for more than a decade, and it’s continuing steadily – with six of the 22 programs identified nationwide enacted since 2009 – according to Good Jobs First, a policy resource center that focuses on economic development and “smart growth.”

“Most corporate tax incentives are simply bad policy, representing an attempt at social engineering our already patchwork tax code. For one thing, businesses don’t make investment decisions based solely on state tax burdens. For another, tax loopholes enable the savviest companies to live tax-free.

“Since money is fungible, some claim it doesn’t matter whether this corporate welfare comes from corporate taxes or personal income taxes. The states are out $700 million in either case. But it does and should matter.

“The personal income tax is a covenant between the citizen and the state. For the executives and shareholders to retain those tax dollars violates that covenant. Employee-funded corporate tax incentives reduce the amount of tax dollars available for vital social services like schools and law enforcement.”

This type of action amounts to fraud, and unfair highly destructive business practices, employees assume that they are paying for a state service, but instead watch as state budgets get smaller and they get less service, then TV tell them it’s because of Welfare, however they fail to mention that they companies they buy their goods at everyday are the ones on Welfare robbing the state blind.

Secondly it gives these large companies who already have huge advantage an unbeatable one. They can use the money given to them by the state to drop their prices below any local small business and drive them out of business. Then once the competition is gone they can raise their prices and reap in huge profits, which go right into the hands of the CEO and stock holders.

These states are damaging their own economies and will bring about their own ruin if this practice is not ceased.

The Secret of Oz — Winner, Best Docu of 2010

The Secret of Oz

In 1996, in a documentary called The Money Masters, we asked the question why is America going broke. It wasn’t clear then that we were, but it is today. Now the question is how can we get out of this mess. Foreclosures are everywhere, unemployment is skyrocketing – and this is only the beginning. America’s economy is on a long, slippery slope from here on. The bubble ride of debt has come to an end.

What can government do? The sad answer is – under the current monetary system – nothing. It’s not going to get better until the root of the problem is understood and addressed. There isn’t enough stimulus money in the entire world to get us out of this hole. Why? Debt. The national debt is just like our consumer debt – it’s the interest that’s killing us.

Though most people don’t realize it the government can’t just issue it’s own money anymore. It used to be that way. The King could just issue stuff called money. Abraham Lincoln did it to win the Civil War. No, today, in our crazy money system, the government has to borrow our money into existence and then pay interest on it. That’s why they call it the National Debt. All our money is created out of debt. Politicians who focus on reducing the National Debt as an answer probably don’t know what the National Debt really is. To reduce the National Debt would be to reduce our money – and there’s already too little of that.

The economy of the U.S. is in a deflationary spiral. Nothing can stop it — except monetary reform.

  1. No more national debt. Nations should not be allowed to borrow. If they want to spend, they have to take the political heat right away by taxing.
  2. No more fractional reserve lending. Banks can only lend money they actually have.
  3. Gold money is NOT the answer. Historically gold ALWAYS works against a thriving middle class and ALWAYS works to create a plutocracy.
  4. The total quantity of money + credit in a national system must be fixed, varying only with the population.

The American Idiot

With education standards dropping in the U.S. since the 1960’s, most Americans will argue they have not, since most are too uneducated now to even pick up a book written in the 1960’s, is it any wonder that we are now a nation of easily manipulated idiots who believe whatever we are told by News Pundits?

The stupider we get the more easily we are tricked into the latest scheme to rip us off. Many American’s wonder why jobs are leaving our country, but can’t look to see they started leaving when, first Reagan and then Clinton lowered tariffs. Many wonder why we had the financial collapse. They can’t look and see that Clinton and McCain passed a bill the deregulated the finance industry, making it legal to do the activities that caused the collapse.

All the information we get is controlled by 6 mega corporations, who have many connections between each corporation, is it any wonder we get no stimulating media content? Yet the average American is not even aware of this fact.

This video really illustrates the terrible condition the American society is in.

Attorney General Eric Holder Defends Legality of Targeted Killings of U.S. Citizens Overseas

Using armed drones, President Obama has overseen the targeted killing of at least three U.S. civilians overseas — more than President Bush did in his eight years in office. Are the killings legal? Hina Shamsi, director of the ACLU’s National Security Project, says Attorney General Eric Holder’s defense on Monday of the Obama administration’s policy authorizing the assassination of U.S. citizens abroad “left open more questions than it answered.” She says Holder’s speech amounted to a broad defense of the administration’s claimed expansive authority to kill its own citizens, far from any battlefield and without judicial review or oversight of legal standards. While “Holder acknowledges that the Constitution requires ‘due process’ before the government takes the life of one of its own citizens,” Shamsi argues, “He says it is up to the Executive Branch alone without judicial review to determine what process is due and to make that decision without any oversight — and that’s simply not the case in our constitutional system of checks and balances.” The ACLU is suing the White House to disclose its legal memos that justify targeted killings.

Buy Payday Monsanto's "Your Slumber"

“Very soon we will give you an implantable
Chip to insert in your neck like an animal.
Let me slow it down so you can comprehend it.
I’ve got the undebunkable truth.
Elementary puzzle, not a complicated riddle.
They’ve got you talkin about guns, diamonds, and bitches.
Elementary puzzle, not a complicated riddle.
I don’t think you understand the severity of the situation.

Atomic bomb blasts brought to you by Comcast.
Recorded on DVR so you can press rewind fast.
Virtual combat prepping you for missions soon.
Practicing on civilians while you’re chilling in your living room.
Identical to real life, except for the menu.
Kill for real when you get sent to kill in real life.
Animation done so realistically, when you see the true battlefield
You think the shit was done by Disney.
They pixilated the perception of a generation.
Mesmerized the multitudes with handy little innovations.
Gave them convenient means to love their own incarceration.
Non-invasive ways that they can track and trace and database them.
And if you aint prepared to get your VeriChip,
There’s a list for you in which you’ll be labeled a terrorist.
200,000 heartless mercenary forces,
Are back from Iraq to take orders from their bosses.

(Chorus)

WAKE UP
Wake the fuck up from your slumber.
This is not a joke nor is it a test.
Wake the fuck up from your slumber.
I’ve got the undebunkable truth.
It’s all written down in black and white,
The plans, the plans, the plans, to control you.
Wake the fuck up from your slumber!

Verse II
The human language was fabricated by cannibals,
To better make the human animal understand the rules.
The alphabet got you under a spell that is magical.
You’ve been possessed ever since your first day of grammar school.
Easily programmable by your controllers,
Education developed by devils, the mind molders.
It don’t take long to get you under the spell,
And square off your head, another brick into the well.
Child protection services ruled by child molesters,
Cheaters, wife beaters, and leaders of wild fiestas.
The heads of University used to favor men, openly
And walk around naked in the gymnasium.
Today you send your children off alone to be with them
Good ole boy clubs like the Bohemian is where you’ll see them in.
You better learn about your enemy with urgency
Instead of wasting all your energy on absurdity.

(Chorus)

It’s all written down in black and white:
The plans, the plans, the plans to control YOU….

Monsanto a Corporation that Should Have Long Since Been Dissolved

This documentary exposes the sordid past, lies and murder committed by the Monsanto corporation. It makes one wonder why this corporation was not dissolved 30 years ago and its board of directors arrested.

Monsanto have an impressive history of committing corporate crimes. Recent Monsanto crimes include:

BST
BST or rBGH marketed by Monsanto as Posilac is a genetically engineered hormone designed to make cows produce more milk. Large amounts of research indicate that BST use has serious implications for the health and welfare of dairy cattle, including making cows more prone to mastitis and sores.
Because of evidence that BST milk may cause breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer in humans, it is banned in Europe. Monsanto is trying to overturn the ban.

Contaminating our food with GM crops
As the market leaders in GM crops it is Monsanto who have been largely responsible for contaminating the global food chain with GM crops. The long term health effects of eating GM crops are as yet unknown.

Contaminating our environment with GM crops
The long term effects of Monsanto’s GM crops on the environment are as yet unknown. In areas where RoundUp Ready crops are being grown commercially, herbicide tolerance is being spread to neighbouring crops and wild plants by cross pollination. Rather than reducing the amount of chemicals used in farming RoundUp Ready crops are locking farmers into a chemical dependant farming system.

Several scientific studies have suggested that the Bt technology utilised by Monsanto in their Bollgard, YieldGard and NewLeaf insect resistant crops may kill ‘non-pest’ insects such as the Monarch butterfly.

Developing world
Having encountered increasing opposition to GM technology in the developed global north, Monsanto have put more energy into pushing their products in the developing global south. An example of this being the attempt by Monsanto/Mahyco to rush their Bt insect resistant cotton through the Indian government’s regulatory process and on to the market. The decision on allowing commercial growing of Bt cotton was postponed for a year in the face massive opposition from Indian farmers and NGOs all over the world.

Terminator Technology
Monsanto holds a patent for ‘terminator’ technology. Terminator technology involves the genetically engineering of plants to produce sterile seeds thus forcing farmers to buy new seed every year, rather than saving their own seed from year to year. Monsanto has said it will not use this technology but still holds the patents and may use it in future.

Corporate Bully Boys
Monsanto don’t like the thought of anyone publicly disagreeing with them or worse still pulling a fast one on them. Where their GM crops are being grown commercially Monsanto have paid a small army of private investigators to check whether farmers are growing their GM crops without permission. Monsanto have successfully sued a Canadian farmer Percy Schmeiser for supposedly planting GM oil seed rape without a license agreement. Percy claims that he has never planted GM crops on his land and that any GM crops on his land are a result of cross pollination from GM crops grown on neighbouring farms. He is launching a counter suit against Monsanto.

In 1997 2 TV journalists Steve Wilson and Jane Akre who had been making a documentary on the dangers of Monsanto’s BST were fired by their employers Fox TV. Fox TV had come under pressure from Monsanto to change the content of the documentary, when Wilson and Akre refused to be muzzled they were sacked.

In 1998 Monsanto took out a wide ranging SLAPP (Stategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) against activists from Genetix Snowball. At the time Genetix Snowball were engaged in a campaign of accountable, non-violent direct action against GM crops. The injunction was designed to intimidate members of the public into not taking direct action against Monsanto’s UK GM field trials.

In 1998 the environmental journal the Ecologist was due to publish a special edition attacking Monsanto. However, the Ecologist’s printers – Penwells of Saltash, Cornwall, destroyed the 14,000 print run without notice fearing liable action from Monsanto.

Climate Change Co-option
Monsanto have seen the potential for new markets for their GM products within the mechanisms of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol on climate change. Since 1998 Monsanto has been one of the principle corporations attempting to hijack the UN climate change negotiations for its own ends. Monsanto claims that its products offer high tech solutions in the battle to reduce CO2 emissions. Monsanto hopes to gain carbon credits in two ways.

1. Monsanto claims that wide spread use of RoundUp Ready crops will reduce the need for ploughing thus keeping large quantities of CO2 locked in the soil.

2. Monsanto hopes to be a major provider of GM trees for forestry ‘carbon sinks’ (large areas of forests planted to soak up CO2 emissions). Monsanto are close to commercialising RoundUp Ready trees and are rumoured to be developing carbon absorbing trees and plants.

Payday Monsanto “The Complex” Music Video & Lyrics

Payday Monsanto “The Complex”

The Complex is about the military industrial complex controlling our government wanting to keep it in a perpetual war so they can get rich.

It’s time we ended control of the U.S. government by special interests. Make lobbying illegal, and prosecute politicians for bribery. Additionally campaign donations should only come from individual people who actually vote in the election of that official. Most elected officials get over 80% of their funding from other sates, so how can they represent their district when the people of their district are not funding them?

Payday Monsanto “The Complex” Lyrics

(I hate your fucking games,
But I love you all so much
Sometimes you got overcome with greed.
It’s your arrogants I need.)

I got higher education for you
Vaccinations for you,
and all kinds of experimental medications for ya.
I got professors and doctors and indoctrinated kids
And media outlets to tell you how great it is.
We concentrated it, now you must depend upon,
Banking institutions integrated with the Pentagon.
It’s been said we spread malice and greed
But the benefits are limitless: We’ve got everything you need!
 

(Chorus)

While you were sleeping
We came and took it all away
You can bet the farm on that
You never saw us creeping
And that’s how it’s going to stay
That’s why they say, that’s why they say, that’s why they say.
I hate your fucking guts
But I love you all so much
You make me overcome with greed
But you’re everything I need.

You’re the only one that can make me leave my home.
It’s like you’ve got a gun pointed at my dome.
 
Who are you going to believe?
Kooky conspiracy theorists whose shits been discredited
Just because we said it is?
I know we’ve been noted to see
But we’ve improved upon our record
Just take our word for it in your sedative.
You’re inevitably headed towards a filthy dirty state
Your name is THX 1138
Whether you like it or not,
I’m George Orwell’s ghost,
Hosting a party and exposing the plot.
And talking about heat; giving you one in the dark.
Ask McDaddy Cain Bang will tell you I warm it up.
Please find this as infamous for givin niggers stitches
Ask I’m on a roll towards delicious riches (by gomez)
My philosophies coincide with Chris”
In so many ways stop the violence and kill the dissers.
He’s been saying that shit for 30 years
Still he got more mothers than ever him crying mercy tears.

(Chorus)

Knowledge is dangerous potentially used in the wrong fashion
The wisdom is safety: Distinguish between knowledge and wisdom.
Please….
Distinguish

Henry Kissinger’s Most Maniacal Quotes

Kissinger Picking NoseHenry Kissinger has been an advisor (officially or unofficially) to every president since Eisenhower, except for John F. Kennedy, who did not want Kissinger near the White House. Kennedy declared that Kissinger’s policies were (and perhaps Kissinger himself was) “insane”.

Richard Nixon, however, thought he was such a great asset that he not only put Kissinger on as National Security Advisor, but made him Secretary of State as well. While Nixon and Congress were preoccupied with Watergate, Kissinger was busy running U.S. foreign policy, hopping around the globe making secretive closed-door deals with foreign countries.

When Gerald Ford took office, he drastically diminished Kissinger’s role. Ford considered this move to be his “most important contribution” to foreign policy.

Bob Woodward’s new book, “State of Denial,” portrays Kissinger as the single most frequent outside adviser to President Bush on foreign policy.

A master of secrecy and deception, some say it was quite logical that George Bush chose Kissinger to head the 9/11 investigations. Shortly after taking the post, Kissinger resigned when a legal opinion from the Senate Ethics Committee said that all members of the commission would have to comply with Congressional financial disclosure requirements. Senator Harry Reid, Chairman of the Senate Ethics Committee, stated “There were too many conflicts of interest for him to lead this task. I knew he would never disclose that information.”

Over the years, Kissinger has worked closely with Nelson, then David Rockefeller. He was instrumental in the design and implementation of the successful CIA operation that installed Gen. Pinochet (September 11, 1973) as dictator of Chile, thus preserving Rockefeller business interests. Over 3000 people were killed in this violent overthrow of Chile’s democracy.

“The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer.”


“What we in America call terrorists are really groups of people that reject the international system…”

— At a May 31, 2007 conference in Istanbul Turkey


“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”

— Henry Kissinger
“The Final Days” by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, page 194 to line 14 of page 195


“Intelligence is not all that important in the exercise of power, and is often, in point of fact, useless.”

— Henry Kissinger


“It is an act of insanity and national humiliation to have a law prohibiting the President from ordering assassination.”

— Henry Kissinger
Statement at a National Security Council meeting in 1975.


“I can think of no faster way to unite the American people behind George W. Bush than a terrorist attack on an American target overseas. And I believe George W. Bush will quickly unite the American people through his foreign policy.”

— Henry Kissinger
Statement from 2000.


“Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the third world, because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.”

— Henry Kissinger


“Wouldn’t have mattered very much. If the Vietnam domino had fallen then, no great loss.”

— When asked “What if the United States had allowed Vietnam to go communist after World War II?”


“Why should we flagellate ourselves for what the Cambodians did to each other?”

— Commenting on the massive U.S. bombing of Cambodia in 1973, which killed three-quarters of a million peasants and disrupted Cambodian society, setting the stage for Pol Pot to come to power and ultimately kill another one-and-a-half million people.


“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will willingly be relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by their world government.”

— Henry Kissinger
In an address to the Bilderberger organization meeting at Evian, France, on May 21, 1991. As transcribed from a tape recording made by one of the Swiss delegates.
