Death & Taxes: Welcome to Obamaland


In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.

We’ve heard this clever aphorism countless times, and nodded our heads in bleak recognition. And yet, have we ever really pondered the ghoulishness that equates taxes with mortality?

Anyone who has ever been audited by the IRS—Seraphic Secret has been twice audited, each time emerging battered but owing the government zero dollars—knows the helpless feeling of being forced to submit to an absolute power, where the normal rules of law and civil society are suspended by an all-powerful government with unlimited resources.

The IRS is a temporal tyranny. Death is the ultimate tyranny. One was created by man, the other by G-d.

Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat party are now playing G-d, by joining death and taxes into one sinister package.

Obamacare is administered by the IRS.

The same lawless agency that has been targeting and oppressing citizens who disagree with the current administration’s policies, is the very agency now tasked with the health—which is to say every breath—of every American.

Indeed, the Obama administration is now setting in motion a system whereby a central government data base will connect Health and Human Services with the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security Administration, Homeland Security, and who knows how many other government agencies.

This makes Big Brother look like a benevolent midget.

The dream of the left, articulated by Marx and Lenin, is to create a rigidly ordered society where messy individualism—AKA liberty—is suppressed in favor of  a utopian common good. Of course, the common good, as defined by the ruling leftists, is forever being downgraded to new normals.

For Obama, this is the new normal of massive unemployment and unsustainable national debt. In a few years, the new normal will be further redefined and downgraded. Before you know it, you live in a society where the common good has been so degraded that the very act of remembering what life used to be like under the banner of liberty and free enterprise is but a distant memory, if not a subversive thought as defined by those supermen who regulate our intake of salt, the size of our soda cups, what light bulbs we can use, and how we flush our toilets.

Welcome to Obamaland, where death and taxes is no longer an ironic statement, but a grim reality.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    A bit off topic, but has anyone besides me ever realized just exactly how disgusting an insult “Get out of my hair” is? What gets INTO people’s hair?

    There was a reason why the Constitution provided no income tax until the most despotic presidents and legislators forced it through, first unconstitutionally, then by amendment only after the nine robed despots woke up after a few decades. Yet too few learn. They call it fair — as in pay your fair share — but it never is, never can be, and creates serfdom every time. Surprise!

    There is a National Review article that I will read tonight – the premise being that this unsustainable debt is about to come crashing down – and the author’s premise (I believe) is that it will be a good thing for the country.
    What the politicians refuse to see will be taken care of by natural economic forces, it seems.
    Who knows how it will affect each of us down the road.
    Still can’t get over Justice Robert’s switch – I guess if anything is to be administered by the IRS it is by definition a “tax” and thus OK.
