    This is what TAX SLAVERY looks like!
    Tax his land, Tax his bed, Tax the tableAt which he’s fed. Tax his tractor, Tax his mule, Teach him taxes Are the rule. Tax his work, Tax his pay, He works for peanuts anyway! Tax his cow, Tax his goat, Tax his pants, Tax his coat. Tax his ties, Tax his shirt, Tax his work, Tax his dirt. Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink, Tax him if he Tries to think. Tax his cigars, Tax his beers, If he cries Tax his tears. Tax his car, Tax his gas, Find other ways To tax his ass. Tax all he has Then let him know That you won’t be done Till he has no dough. When he screams and hollers; Then tax him some more, Tax him till He’s good and sore. Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave, Tax the sod in Which he’s laid… Put these words Upon his tomb, Taxes drove me to my doom…’ When he’s gone, Do not relax, Its time to apply The inheritance tax. STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY? Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids. What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’ I hope this goes around THE USA at least 545 times!!! YOU can help it get there!!! GO AHEAD. . . BE AN AMERICAN!!!

    Are there no provisions for firing Congress people? They have not worked a day for the people. They blatantly spend tax dollars on whatever trip, ceremony, meetings, social gatherings, etc. In a private business, an employee would be fired, in a heartbeat. It is open embezzlement. They give themselves raises, with no discussion given or vote taken by the taxpayer. The list is actually endless. Surely, there is some way, besides voting them out. It is just idiotic that they can do whatever they please, with no penalties or termination.

    Manager Adam Schiff has suggested we put ourselves in the Biden’s shoes.
    I would assume that if you did what the Bidens did – allowing Hunter Biden to turn Ukraine into an ATM machine receiving an estimated $3 million from one of the most corrupt companies in a corrupt country – I dare say you should expect some questions coming your way. If you are a Republican, you could expect Mr. Schiff to be your worst nightmare.
    If VP Pence and his son were in this spot, I’m confident Mr. Schiff and our Democratic colleagues would be demanding someone look into this matter, not simply sweep it under the rug. Every media outlet in the country would demand an accounting and Democrats would be howling for an investigation.
    It is clear to me that the House managers are misleading the Senate and the country when they say that the Bidens’ conflict of interest in Ukraine is baseless and has been debunked.
    When this trial is over, I expect either congressional oversight or an independent investigation into the Biden matter.

    There is no interference in our election looking into corruption by anybody running for public office. While it may interfere with a candidate seeking a nomination, that is part of politics. It’s the President’s duty to look into corruption regardless of who it affects.

    Here are some interesting points to think about prior to 2020, especially to my friends on the fence, like moderate Democrats, Libertarians and Independents and the never Trump Republicans and those thinking of “walking away” from the Democratic party:
    – Women are upset at Trump’s naughty words — they also bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray.
    – Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.
    – No Border Walls. No voter ID laws. Did you figure it out yet? But wait… there’s more…
    – Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year. Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege. And just like that, they went from being against foreign interference in our elections to allowing non-citizens to vote in our elections.
    – President Trump’s wall costs less than the Obamacare website. Let that sink in, America!
    – We are one election away from open borders, socialism, gun confiscation, and full-term abortion nationally. We are fighting evil.

      “Women are upset at Trump’s naughty words — they also bought 80 million copies of 50 Shades of Gray.” – the vast majority of those were bought by men, as gifts to their wives and girlfriends, most of whom were horrified. The women pretended to like them because they actually got a present for once, and of course it was really a present a man bought for himself, just like the stupid “sexy nightgown.”
      “Not one feminist has defended Sarah Sanders. It seems women’s rights only matter if those women are liberal.” – Women of all political persuasions have defended her, unless she was parroting a Trump lie everybody knew was wrong, which she did a lot.
      “No Border Walls. No voter ID laws. Did you figure it out yet?” – We’re fine with walls, just not ineffective insanely expensive ones, with contracts given to Trump cronies. We’ve figured out a lot more than you.
      “Chelsea Clinton got out of college and got a job at NBC that paid $900,000 per year.” – Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of George W. Bush, is the co-host of Today with Hoda & Jenna, the fourth hour of NBC’s morning news program Today, a job for which she has no credentials other than her name. She makes $4 million per year, four times what Chelsea Clinton is paid. “Her mom flies around the country speaking out about white privilege.” – She speaks on many topics, including that one.
      “President Trump’s wall costs less than the Obamacare website.” – A flat-out lie, and at least Obamacare actually does some good for the working poor. The wall is a welfare program for Trump’s billionaire donors, who got the contract to build it without bidding.
      “We are one election away from open borders, socialism, gun confiscation, and full-term abortion nationally. We are fighting evil.” – More lies. If you have your way, we’re one election away from full totalitarianism. You ARE the evil, masquerading as good, which is the worst kind.

A nutcase like Tlaib being forcefully dragged out of a meeting screaming everyone was crazy! Omar trying to form a simple one sentence question on a subject she knew nothing about.

    2nd Floor Conf. R, City Hall 1-16-20
    Mason City, Iowa 6:00 P.M.

    MINUTES
    COUNCIL WORKSESSION

    The City Council of the City of Mason City, Iowa, met in Worksession pursuant to law and rules of said Council, in the 2nd Floor Conference Room of City Hall at 6:00 P.M., on January 16, 2020. The meeting was called to order by the Mayor and on roll being called, there were present, Mayor in the Chair Schickel and the following Council Members: Lee, Jaszewski, Adams, Thoma, Masson. Absent: Symonds.

    Jacobson highlighted the Capital Improvements Fund by yearly comparison. The funds included Local Option Sales Tax, GO Bonds, Road Use Tax, Storm Sewer, Water, Sewer, Sanitation and Ambulance.

    General Projects Fund: Jacobson provided a review of the General Projects Fund, advising it was pretty straight forward and staff was asking for $92,000.

    Storm Sewer Fund: Jacobson reviewed the projects, stating the S. Monroe Paving & Utilities Project was a carry-over that would probably not be done this year. He also noted the City was paring back projects for 2021. The projects amounted to $471,000 and that included carry-over balances, adding staff was not looking at an increase in rates this year.

    Discussion followed regarding steadily increasing rates and industrial usage.

    Ambulance: Jacobson stated the debt would be paid off in 2021 and they were anticipating that $250,000 of revenues over expenses in operating would take care of the capital request, noting they would continue to try to stay above $250,000 in reserves. Burnett pointed out there would be ambulance replacement as revenues allowed and they had been running pretty lean, but were optimistic that the recently approved contract with GEMT would bring more money into that fund.

    Sanitation Fund: Jacobson advised they had not replaced a vehicle for a couple years so it was now time, adding the increase was $0.40 a month ($12.05 minimum) and the fund was looking solid for the next 5 years. He also stated right now collections were ahead of schedule and he did not see this as being a major issue and rates had to increase in order to maintain the fund with Burnett adding equipment for sanitation had gone up considerably and had outpaced normal inflation.

    Water Fund: Jacobson discussed various projects proposed in the fund, advising the 12th Street NW Reconstruction and the Water Tower Maintenance Program were carryovers. He stated within the Water fund there was $275,000 in excess Operating revenues to be used for Capital and $942,000 in GO Bonds to be abated with Water Revenue. The monthly increase for this fund would be $0.71 or $28.05 a month (water portion) for the average homeowner using 500cf or a projected yearly increase of 2.55% (1% increase for operating and 1.55% increase in debt service).

    Discussion followed regarding Well #15 and a request for a presentation on Jordon Aquafer as it pertained to the City of Mason City Local Wellfield Report.

    Sewer Fund: Jacobson reviewed the projects included in the fund and explained how staff was trying to methodically build (increase) rates so the impact to the citizens wouldn’t be as large when it came time to start the Nutrient Reduction project. There were approximately $1.8 million in projects, with $700,000 in Operating revenues with some reserves being used to fund the projects. In addition, $585,000 GO Revenue Bonds would be abated with Sewer revenues and concluded by stating the average homeowner would be seeing an increase of $0.49 ($17.66) or a projected yearly increase of 2.83%

    Discussion followed regarding the Televising and Collection System Sewer Repairs Project, the Nutrient Reduction Program.

    Local Option Sales and Service Tax: Jacobson discussed when a vote would be held for this (2022) and reviewed the projects. He referred to the items highlighted, stating one of the bigger items was leased vehicles, explaining staff had identified ways to turn the vehicles around quicker and a cost and analysis had completed and it was determined that there should be a cost savings. In addition, he discussed the Debt issue for the Highline Trials and the items listed under Parks and Recreation and advised $400,000 would be transferred to Debt Service to be used for RCR bonds. Jacobson stated there was $1.9 Million for projects and $325,000 in Local Option Sales Tax Reserves and with $341,000 transferred out to Road Use there would be total funding sources of $1,883,394.00

    Comments followed regarding the status of the Highline Trails, leasing vehicles and the Iowa Great Places Grant.

    Road Use Tax Fund: Jacobson highlighted the projects and explained they were looking at $1,989,031 for the Road Use Tax fund which would be bonded money.
    G.O. Bonds: Jacobson reviewed the projects and stated these projects would increase the fiscal year 2022 Debt Service Levy by approximately $0.33 with current debt paid off and reducing the levy $0.22 for a net increase in the levy of $0.13. Jacobson also stated there was $3,075,000 in carryover funds, $8,700,000 outside sources (RCR Project) and $1,989,031 in Road Use Tax GO Bonding. He also stated the $8.7 million could increase the Debt Service Levy by up to $0.75 depending on the State credits and that amount could be affected by the increase in incremental values within the downtown TIF district.

    Discussion followed regarding State Tax Credits, TIF, backfill, need for a charging station, etc.

    Outside Funding Sources: Jacobson stated the items in blue were TIF funded and a few projects had grants as the primary funding source, but noted if the revenues did not come in the projects would not happen. He also mentioned there would be a rate increase in Internal Services which was something that hadn’t happened for several years. Jacobson stated the CIP plan had $29.8 million in projects which meant a monthly $1.60 increase over the year for projects identified in 2021.

    Discussion followed regarding the Debt Service Levy and CoRL and DoRL.

    Conclusion: Jacobson stated with the projects discussed the following increases would apply for Enterprise Funds:

    $0.71 water increase
    $0.49 sewer
    $0.40 sanitation
    $1.60 a month Utility Rate & Levy Increase for an average user (500CF) or a yearly increase of $19.20 for the average homeowner

    The Mayor adjourned the meeting at 7:50 P.M.

    “I MISS BILL”
    It doesn’t matter what party you belong to, this is good natured political humor from a Canadian TV show, where a black comedian said he misses Bill Clinton… “Yep, that’s right – I miss Bill Clinton” He was the closest thing we ever got to having a real black man as President. He plays the saxophone. He smoked weed. He had his way with ugly white women. Even now? Look at him… his wife works, and he doesn’t! And, he gets a check from the government every month. Manufacturers announced today that they will be stocking America’s shelves this week with “Clinton Soup,” in honor of one of the nations’ distinguished men. It consists primarily of a weenie in hot water. Chrysler Corporation is adding a new car to its line to honor Bill Clinton. The Dodge Drafter will be built in Canada. When asked what he thought about foreign affairs, Clinton replied, “I don’t know, I never had one.” The Clinton revised judicial oath: “I solemnly swear to tell the truth as I know it, the whole truth as I believe it to be, and nothing but what I think you need to know.” Clinton will be recorded in history as the only President to have sex in the Oval Office between the Bushes. It’s just been announced by Dell that a new computer will be introduced to the market in the near future. It’s the Bill Clinton model featuring a 6 inch hard-drive and no memory.

    The night of the 2016 election when Clinton lost, you never hear of her destroying $30,000 of hotel property. She also did a great deal of destruction along with stealing from the White House when they left.

    ***My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. The results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

      **I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

        ***The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60’s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today. The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

          **With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War. Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!” But it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

            **Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.

    **The fact that socialists are openly running for public office in America — that socialists actually hold public office in Congress — should serve as enough wake up call that the nation’s moral and political compasses are skewed, in dire need of correcting. That it doesn’t only screams this: America’s public school systems have become utter failures.

    **Tie the tax dollars to the individual child and let parents choose where and how they want their children educated. Yes, it is going to force some of the current public schools to shut down, but they need to, they need to be forced to restructure. Throwing more and more money at an already failed system is never the solution and is completely insane. For the record I believe there are a lot of good teachers out there but their hands are tied by a corrupt bureaucratic system… Where good teachers are seldom rewarded and the incompetent ones can never be fired.

        *If CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. If they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

          *So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

    *A scientific paper published by a team of Australian researchers has revealed a startling find: Scientists at the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) have been “adjusting” historical data regarding tide levels in the Indian Ocean. Their “highly questionable” activities have depicted rapidly rising seas — but the truth is that there is no reason to be alarmed at all. Scientists have found that sea levels are stable — and have been for the entirety of the 20th century. To put it simply, these PSMSL “scientists” have been arbitrarily changing their data in order to create the illusion of a problem that doesn’t actually exist.
