Death and Taxes

Nothing is certain but death and taxes

Well, well, well.... Obama has now nominated/anointed three politicians who are behind in their taxes. Tim Geithner is my synch favorite - the new head of the Treasury Department!?! Maybe I'm alone on this, but I think the guardian of the Treasury should regard paying taxes like Catholics regard tithing!

I guess taxes are only for the little people now. Besides all the perks, bribes and kickbacks, now politicians don't even pay taxes on their HONEST money! Not that I am without sin here so I can't really throw the first stone... maybe a pebble?

The IRS has garnered its share of conspiracy theories over the years, my favorite being that it is secretly infiltrated by agents of Scientology. L. Ron (Elron) Hubbard was fascinated by money and commanded his followers to stop at NOTHING in obtaining it, so it makes perfect sense that Scientology would eventually worm its way into the mother of all money extractors. My own pinging on Scientology is that it is truly an inspired religion - inspired by the devil himself. Scientology is actually a fairly honest religion as far as religions go - very upfront about the exchange of cash for salvation. So it makes me wonder, since the devil exposes himself with every move on Chessboard (Battlefield) Earth...

Maybe there are taxes in heaven? Ten percent seems about right. A flat tax on your ecstatic experience that goes to the house! In fact, maybe that is what MAKES him God - the ability to collect XTC tax. Maybe Earth is like a Duty Free shop that Satan and his space pirates have set up, much like Baron Lando Calrissian in Cloud City, mining tibanna gas from the planet Bespin below:

During the Dark Nest Crisis, Bespin was troubled by the appearance of Tibanna tappers, siphoning gas from floating refineries such as BesGas Three to sell elsewhere. Because of this, Cloud City's profits dropped by at least ten percent. Fortunately, the Jedi made an effort to stop the Tibanna tappers. --Wookieepedia

Maybe these so-called Tibanna Tappers are the church - collecting tithes and offerings all these many years - the spiritual storehouse. To Lando/Satan - tithes to God cut into profit. Better put a stop to that. So following the Scientology model, Satan infiltrates the church/IRS, until the pirates are minding the store.

I note that the only time Jesus really got PISSED OFF was in the temple, overthrowing the tables of the moneychangers. Hmmm... turning the tables.

So I dunno, I almost feel like becoming Catholic! A pirate infested island could use some help. Maybe "secret agent" works both ways.

Abba: Money Money Money. Note the black and white flapper theme, and interestingly, the middle eastern vocals.

Lando Calrissian? As the Satan in the Star Wars mythos? Interesting, Michael. But, interestinger is the fact that I see not an eagle holding a scales of justice in its beak in the (very) abstract emblem for the IRS you attached here; it is, instead, a cowled figure holding in its claw (?) an inverted (reeead: Satanic) crucifix to which is attached two compasses, one for measuring this world, the other for measuring the Otherworld. Recall that the world renowned logo for the Free & Accepted Masons is the T-square & compass, as they're supposed to be the architects behind world affairs.

Forget not, Michael, what one of our mutual heroes, Mikhail Bakunin, the father of TRUE anarchy, not the bomb-hurling, bloodshed fomenting kind, had spake so, so long ago:

"But here steps in Satan, the eternal rebel, the first free-thinker & emancipator of worlds. He makes man ashamed of his bestial ignorance & obedience; he emancipates him, stamps upon his brow the seal of liberty & humanity, in urging him to disobey & eat of the fruit of knowledge."

Well, I'm sure that you're familiar with the Hebrew for Satan NOT being the specific name of the Fallen One, but merely a title meaning "adversary".

ABBA! I love them! They were truly one of the most intelligent & well-crafted bands in Pop music, let alone one of the most prolific. Try THIS You Tube morsel, all in primitive CGI animation, for their alien abduction song, "The Visitors":

Speaking of the Satanicly-inspired Church of Scientology! You're aware that its founder, Hubbard, was a big Crowleyan with his best bud, Jack Parsons, are you not?

The latter happens to have been the inventor of NASA's rocket fuel. A book by a John Carter, whose name oddly mirrors that of the sci-fi hero, John Carter of Mars, a character penned by the creator of Conan the Barbarian, Edgar Rice Burroughs, wrote a book about the ill-fated inventor, "Sex & Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons". As I'm sure you must 'Gno' fraternising with us conspiraloons, sex magick was an attempt of bridging dimensions to usher in offworld entities.

Someone, somewhere, some way, has Hell to pay. I'm glad that it izzint me. Great work, Michael ~ Anadæ Effro ( :-)}

ARGH! ... error alert. My mistake. It was Robert E. Howard, best buds with the New England Gent himself, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, who had given life to the Hyborian Cimmerian, Conan the Barbarian, not, repeat, not Edgar Rice Burroughs. Ooof, that hurt.

I think that it's high time that I removed caffeine from my daily intake of herbal infusions. Other 'an 'at lapse of accountability, I stand by everything else I observed.

An aspiring Catholic convert are you, Michael? Ya might wanna try Episcopalian, the Americanised version of the Church of England, one of the most notably wealthiest of all denominations stateside.

They do, after all, have one of the largest gay congregations, as you are well aware, causing quite the rift in the Anglican Communion worldwide. Later, man.

Make mine herbal tea, decaf,

Hi Anadae - thanks for the comments! To start at the end, I'm not really an aspiring Catholic, I just have too many personal "Catholic" synchs to ignore - and I do find the bizarre war between the Catholics and the Templars to be fascinating.

Thanks for the Conan reference, and yes, the Parsons/Hubbard/Crowley love triangle is quite amazing.

As far as the Eternal Rebel goes, I guess I'm tired of him. I desire reconciliation more than some noble cause. It's funny 'cause my high school mascot was the Rebel. Sometimes obedience is a rebel act.

Thanks for the reading of the IRS logo, I was hoping someone would be able to "divine" it!

Cheers, Michael
