Another Stiff Dose of Hope and Change

     We are writing from San Antonio, in the very comfortable confines of the home of my wife's brother and sister-in-law.  In the correct Spanish that would be respectively, my cun~ado (brother-in-law) and concun~a (wife of my brother-in-law).   They have a very pleasant, nearly gingerbread-house fully adorned in classical American, Rockwellian Christmas vesture.  Remarkable, generous, and competent people.

     In the meantime, El Zorro rides through the night to remind young and old, tall and short, rich and poor....that if you work and/or invest and/or have anything at didn't do that.   The government let you have it.  The government decided to give it to you.  You didn't do it.   Therefore, as collateral damage associated with the  Obama Socialised Medicine Initiative, we need to remember the following little present from Santa know, the brother of Lois Lerner and the Gruber that stole Christmas, Easter, your private life, your children's and grandchildren's future, and traditional life as we knew it.

Remember this��WHEN YOU DO YOUR TAXES IN APRIL) ! ! ! ! ! !
In case you didn't notice.
Here is what happened on January 1, 2014��:
Top Medicare tax went from 1.45% to 2.35%,
an increase of 62 %
Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%,
an increase of 13 %
Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%,
an increase of 52 %
Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%��
an increase of 87 %
Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%,
an increase of 164 %
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%,
an increase of infinity . . .
Remember this fact:
These taxes were all passed��with��only��democrat votes
No republicans voted for these taxes.
These taxes were all��quietly passed
under the Affordable Care Act, aka OBAMACARE.
If you think it is important that everyone in the U. S.
should know this, pass it on.
If not, then delete it.

     Please forgive the assault upon the OROG community's sensibilities during the Feast of the Nativity.  But we must now fight on the Sabbath, on the High Holy Days, on Feast Days, on Fasting Days, and on every day of the Calendar.  Begin to-morrow on Boxing Day, just by remembering the above facts.  Bring them to mind to Boehner and McConnell.   Stand the good fight, and ride to the sound of the guns.   El Zorro's message is more than salient.   It has become a matter of life, death, and whether or not we pursue happiness of abide in misery and dependence.
