Dennis the Menace syndrome..

(I’m being kind)

According to Webster: men·ace, (in context) A troublesome or annoying person.

A few days ago, ..I received a menacing e-mail, ..i.e., ..a (forward) ..from a good friend, who I will simply refer to as “Pete,” for purposes of anonymity. “Pete,” a civic minded individual and longtime friend shared with me what he believed would be information of significant interest to me, as I am, what society correctly refers to as a senior citizen, i.e., and/or an old guy dependent on his Social Security.

The following is the forward that I received from Pete..

“ON JANUARY 1ST 2012, THE GOVERNMENT IS REQUIRING EVERYONE TO HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT FOR SS CHECKS. WONDER WHY?

Do you receive a retirement check from soc sec or a pension fund and have it direct deposit?? Well guess what….looks as if Obama wants to tax it 1% !!! *just one more nail in the coffin me thinks…..
All of you old coots, and old coots to be, had better read this. This Obama gang is diabolical. Is your Soc. Sec. check on direct deposit?

1% tax on all bank transactions HR4646
Watch for this AFTER November elections; remember this BEFORE you VOTE in case you think Obama’s looking out for your best interest.

This government just cannot think of enough ways to hurt the American people!

1% tax on all bank transactions HR 4646 – ANOTHER NEW OBAMA TAX SLIPPED IN WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP. Checked this on snopes, it’s true! Check out HR 4646.

President Obama’s finance team is recommending a one percent (1%) transaction fee (TAX). Obama’s plan is to sneak it in after the November elections to keep it under the radar.

This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution – banks, credit unions, savings and loans, etc. Any deposit you make, or even a transfer within your account, will have a 1% tax charged. ~If your paycheck or your social security or whatever is direct deposit, it will get a 1% tax charged for the transaction. ~If your paycheck is $1000, then you will pay Obama $10 just for the privilege of depositing your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry your paycheck or any check into your bank for a deposit, 1% tax will be charged. ~You receive a $5,000 stock dividend from your broker, Obama takes $50 just to allow you to deposit that check in the bank.. ~If you take $1,000 cash to deposit at your bank, 1% tax will be charged.

Mind you, this is from the man who promised that, if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax. Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn about this guy’s under-the-table moves to increase the number of ways you are taxed.

~Oh, and by the way, if you receive a refund from the IRS next year and you have it direct deposited or you walk in to deposit that check, you guessed it. You will pay a 1% charge of that money just for putting it in your bank. Remember, any money, cash, check or whatever, no matter where it came from, you will pay a 1% fee if you put it in the bank.
Some will say, oh well, it’s just 1%. Are you kidding me? It’s a 1% tax increase across the board. Remember, once the tax is there, they can also raise it at will. And if anyone protests, they will just say, “oh, that’s not really a tax, it’s a user fee”! Think this is no big deal? Go back and look at the transactions you made from last year’s banking statements. Then add the total of all those transactions and deduct 1%. Still think it’s no big deal?”

Keeping in mind, that “Pete’s” intellect is equal to any American citizen who spends less than two hours a week on the Internet, as Pete is a working, productive individual. So Pete bought the fish…

Which I completely understand, ..because I use to buy the fish before I threw my hat in the ring…

After doing a Google search of HR 4646, my reply to my friend was…

Good morning “anonymous, ..and/or Pete”, I received your missive concerning house bill HR 4646, ..I don’t know who sent you this fish? , ..but if you do? ..send them this !  ..way too much bulk making its way around in cyberspace, ..you gotta check ’em out. ..C

“H.R. 4646: Debt Free America Act

To establish a fee on transactions which would eliminate the national debt and replace the income tax on individuals.

Sponsor: Rep. Chaka Fattah [D-PA2]

This bill never became law. This bill was proposed in a previous session of Congress. Sessions of Congress last two years, and at the end of each session all proposed bills and resolutions that haven’t passed are cleared from the books. Members often reintroduce bills that did not come up for debate under a new number in the next session.

“A troublesome or annoying person,” doesn’t even begin to describe the moronic clowns, that by some stretch of their demented imaginations, believe that flooding the Internet with misinformation is somehow fun.

If you can’t participate by the rules, (honestly, with some semblance of ethics) ..take your gloves off.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
