Good promo for Clean Coal:
... And a good article at AT today by Frank Ryan describing civil disobedience and how that IS required now-a-days. Here are some examples of what ALL Americans need to do:
"Drive less for a few weeks. The federal fuel tax per gallon of gasoline is 18.4 cents. To that you must also add the state fuel tax, which ranges from about 8 cents per gallon in Alaska to 49 cents per gallon in New York. The federal and state highway budgets are already struggling.
If you itemize your deductions on your federal tax return, consider increasing your charitable contributions. Again, you save your marginal tax rate, not your average tax rate, due to the type of tax structure we have -- and you will feel better.
If you are able to retire early and draw Social Security at age 62, do so. This not only draws on the fund, but it reduces your tax liability since your earned income is reduced. You really starve the beast with this step.
If there are toll roads in your area, do not use them unless the time savings are significant. Many state governments have substantially increased tolls because they think you are not sensitive to toll price increases (called elasticity of demand).
The next tool is to pay your taxes only when they are due. Paying taxes early feeds the very beast that's abusing you. This government needs your money in order to keep abusing you.
Martin Luther King has been heralded as a great leader. Change occurred because he, as a leader, was willing to take a stand for a principle he believed in.
Our government has so overstepped its responsibilities as enumerated in Article 1, Sections 7 and 8 of the U.S. Constitution that I can no longer recognize the government that I thought represented me.
This president and this Congress have done nothing more than enslave the very people whom they proclaim they are trying to protect with this massive public debt and overspending.
The greatest gift one can ever give to a people is the right of self-determination. Our out-of-control entitlement mentality has effectively enslaved future generations to pay for our decisions and for the government overreach of today.
These entitlements have also enslaved the people receiving them.
I can think of nothing more disingenuous than to make someone dependent. It is equally disingenuous for a president to do that to an entire nation.
It's simple. If you really believe in your principles, stop feeding this beast. Make your economic voice heard.
Reduce your income, cut back spending, and fund your taxes only when due. Do these three things in unison, and we will win. Vote with your wallet!"
Good tips Mr. Ryan, thanks!
