Peanut Butter, Taxes and Local Debt

by | Aug 2, 2020 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This China Wuhan virus business has changed a lot of things. Primarily, our grocery shopping habits have emptied shelves of some products and left others untouched. Toilet paper for example is deemed essential because people don’t want to get poo on their fingers when there are other market alternatives available for ones personal hygiene. Grocery market shelves are great indicators of whats really important to people at the family level.
My wife mentioned to me recently that when she goes to the market to re-stock our meager lauder for the week, she has noted that peanut butter, especially the big jars, is the one item consistently missing from the shelves every time she goes. As an affordable food source, especially for families with children, peanut butter is like nectar and ambrosia. Lucky for us, China isn’t making it. Their version is pureed fish and crushed rice, eaten with chop sticks.
My wife and I, and I suspect many of you reading this too, were early on addicted to peanut butter. The product, with or without crushed peanuts mixed in, for us, fulfills a basic need that satisfies our bodies demand for nourishment without the need of preparing a meal or eating fattening doughnuts. The satisfaction of our afternoon hunger pangs is sated by a spoonful of peanut butter, occasionally smeared over a slice of hot toast with honey.
My wife and I are both products of the WWII experience with fathers, uncles and brothers gone off to war, aunts and mothers working in the war industry and families living on rationed food. Peanut butter however, was an available food staple that allowed ration affected families to feed children cheaply with nourishing food. For us little children peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread was a marvelous lunch time treat, the staple of our daily existence. They accompanied us to school with an apple and a bag of chips as our noon meal. My mom loved Fritos. At supper time our meals were often beans, chicken and fried eggplant, and home grown fruits and vegetables from our own Victory Gardens. I never realized we were poor!
What does Peanut Butter have to do with local debt? $0.74 cents out of every dollar paid to our county’s Tax Commissioner goes to the School District, a lot of it spent on feeding other people’s children! Perhaps it’s the cost of feeding so many ‘hungry’ school children at tax payer expense that the school district takes such a high bite out of our tax dollar.
Can the costs incurred be alleviated by the cheaper alternative of turning the feeding of their own children back over to the parents? It can be done. It was done before and nobody complained, and because store shelves quickly empty of peanut butter, clearly they’re doing it again. I think peanut butter and jelly sandwiches taken to school in a paper bag will do quite nicely.
Because it’s the one food product during this China Wuhan virus crisis consistently missing from modern day store shelves, is where the clue lies. We can easily extrapolate from the items missing from store shelves that people are buying peanut butter as a nutritional alternative because its inexpensive, children love it, children can make sandwiches themselves, it goes a long way, and fulfills the nutritional needs children’s bodies require, on the cheap so to speak. 
Government(s), county governments, simply cannot continue spending money they don’t have by taxing the citizens of money they don’t have, to satisfy the Progressive need to prove that government must provide everything to everybody, all the time. It’s another mark of the loss of Americans’ self-sufficiency and independence. Gimmicks like Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST) schemes are losing their appeal to local tax payers.
Let’s start re-thinking our real needs and how to pay for ’em!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!

George McClellan

George G. McClellan, a California native, was a Regular Army veteran and served a post-war Korea tour. His post-army professional career covered 43 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol and the US Naval Investigative Service (NCIS). With the latter, he became a world traveler visiting and working in many countries from the Philippine Islands to the United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle-East, Bosnia, Europe, Russia, and India. He retired from the NIS at Naval Air Station, Atlanta, Ga., and has remained in the north Georgia area since 1990 as a co-owner of a Security Consulting company. He earned a Certified Protectional Professional (CPP) certification from the American Society for Industrial Security and a Fraud Examiner Certification (CFE).

He has published a historical biography on a namesake, a John Jacob Astor Fur Company member who explored a route west and back, after Lewis and Clark. Early American history, Celtic influence on America, and conservative politics remain his greatest interests. He is also a bagpiper since 1975. He and his wife, since 1965, now resides in Gilmer County, Ga.

America’s Marxist Termite Infestation

America’s Marxist Termite Infestation

The American body politic has drifted far afield from the Madisonian constitutional moorings of check and balance controls by three separate co-equal branches to an imperial executive that rules through edicts, guidance directives, and appointed publicly unaccountable agency bureaucrats — such as the EPA, FBI/DOJ and Department of Education.

How to Defund Unconstitutional Government Programs

How to Defund Unconstitutional Government Programs

Here are a few examples of how Constitutional Conservatives can use the “defund” movement to move the country back in the direction of constitutionally limited government. There is nothing in the Constitution about government-funded elementary schools, government-funded universities, and government-funded free food. Defund all government agencies not enumerated in the Constitution…

Israel Smashes Hamas’ Terror Tunnels

Israel Smashes Hamas’ Terror Tunnels

Israel secured an undeniable victory in Gaza this week. By eliminating the terrorist fighters in the tunnels, Israel may have saved hundreds of Palestinian lives, lives that otherwise might have been lost, because they were forced to be human shields for the Hamas officers and fighters who were hiding among them. By driving the terrorists into the tunnels, these lives were spared…

Biden, Kerry and the Moderate Iranian Fantasy

The most important revelations pertaining to the mindset of the Ayatollahs’ leadership, its priorities, and internal conflicts came from the leaked recording. These details prove that the terrorist regime is hell-bent on military domination of the Middle East by every means possible, especially by proxy terrorist entities, such as Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Kataaib in Iraq, and Houthis in Yemen, to name a few…

The Science of Pseudoscience for Sinister Gain

The Science of Pseudoscience for Sinister Gain

Real science no longer plays a role in establishing pandemic policies; it is the enemy of the rogue state. These are cases of good science leading to evil outcomes, however, you wish to analyze them. What is most concerning is that the Wuhan viral manipulation actors include the brainchildren of eugenics advocates, such as the Bill Gates and the Rockefeller foundations. Did they not fund this research?

Biden is on Losing Side of All Key Voting Issues

The Democrat Left’s influential alignment with radical neo-Marxist “woke” ideologies and agendas are bound to be prominently featured by Republicans in the 2022 midterms. Amid rising violent disorder, Left-aligned defund the police, and Second Amendment assaults are even opposed by many properly worried traditional Democrat voters, including most…

Hamas ‘Rain’ of Terror:  Israel Fights Back

Hamas ‘Rain’ of Terror: Israel Fights Back

Today, as the Israeli-Arab violence continues to spiral out of control, Israel is fighting a two-front (and maybe even a three-front) war, and the terrorists show no sign of giving in or giving up. Every war that Israel has been forced to engage in is a fight for survival. Hamas’ mission is clear. Hezbollah has the same mission. As does the Palestinian Authority. The destruction of the Jewish state and the creation of a…

GOP Bill Calls for CCP-Infiltrated Colleges to Fess Up

In his remarks, Sen. Chuck Grassley said: “One member of the communist regime said: ‘The Confucius Institute is an appealing brand for expanding our culture abroad. It has made an important contribution toward improving our soft power. The ‘Confucius’ brand has a natural attractiveness. Using the excuse of teaching Chinese language, everything looks reasonable and logical.’”

Is The CDC Trustworthy Anymore? 

Is The CDC Trustworthy Anymore? 

Tucker Carlson wonders why Dr. Fauci hasn’t been indicted yet. He’s the guy in charge of America’s response to the Covid infestation, isn’t he; and it appears he’s the guy who funded the NIAID’s Wuhan research lab that he denies. Could Dr. Fauci be charged one may ask? Well, he did approve the Federal NIAID Grant to the Wuhan Labs, in explicit contravention of Federal Law banning US funding of “Gain of Function” experiments…
