DaTechGuy’s actual meanings of common phrases “commission”

Type: Noun

Accepted Meaning A group of persons directed to perform some duty.

Actual meaning: When prefaced by the word “government.” Political Cover

Purpose of accepted meaning: To deceive the public as to your true intentions.

Result of said purpose: Being able to vote for an unpopular law without actually taking responsibility saying that you are only following the recommendations of the commission.

Commentary:

In this case very simple. The public is on the verge of a tax revolt but the liberals/progressives/socialists want to perpetuate and expand the welfare state. In order to do so they need to find a new source of revenue but the only source that is available is the middle/lower classes. As has already been demonstrated support for a VAT is political death. The new Fiscal commission has one single purpose: To give congressional democrats political cover for the creation of a national VAT/sales tax. Even rank and file democrats aren’t going to support this, but once there is a commission then the media will make it the “responsible” decision and the lemmings who walk with the democrats and the media will do so.

And let me tell you once Government has a new source of revenue from you, democrats, republicans et/al they will want it for themselves!

If we as a people do this to ourselves then we will deserve the end result.

You have been warned.

Update: Via Itsonlywords on twitter. Can someone explain to me how the president say: “at a certain point you’ve made enough money” but there is never a certain point where we have been taxed enough nor a certain point when the government has spent enough?

Update 2: HotAir makes it the quote of the day
