Jerry Brown: California tax vote
start of national tax hike sweep

Sacramento Bee [CA], by David Siders

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/11/2012 11:40:19 PM

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a television interview this morning that passage of his initiative to raise taxes has national implications, with California at the start of a broader movement to increase taxes on the rich. "Revenue means taxes, and certainly those who have been blessed the most, who have disproportionately extracted, by whatever skill, more and more from the national wealth, they´re going to have to share more of that," Brown said in a taped interview on CNN´s State of the Union with Candy Crowley. "And everyone is going to have to realize

Comments:
If you have disproportionately extracted from the national wealth (his words) you must share more of it. He should change his name from Brown to Red.

And no amount of history or experience that raising taxes suppresses growth will deter these "redistributors" from their mission!

The rest of us must pull a Willy Wonka: "stop, wait, come back..." to which none of them will listen.

Jerry Brown never worked in any private job. His father was well off so Brown never had to worry about money.

So does this mean that Hollywooders will move out of the state? It would be interesting to see how many use addresses in other states.

Of course. Class warfare has prevailed, maybe. There are more takers than earners in CA. The majority is in favor of wealth redistribution. The sales tax increase will affect all, so it can not be avoided. But, the increased income taxes could bring negative results. Many high dollar earners are able to relocate outside CA and take their high incomes with them. Then, Moonbeam and the takers will get NONE of their income, instead of the current amount. If enough people do this, CA will have a net loss of revenue.

Who will be over-taxed next?

Translated: "We want to spend a lot more of your income on High Speed Rail (No trains or crew, just rails), increased tuition for our undocumented visitors, increased benefits for government employees etc. We´ll start with the rich because there are fewer of them and then work our way down the economic ladder. Be patient, we´ll get to everyone eventually." .

Check this out, Moonbeam; I didn´t "extract" anything. I earned it. I´d add that I make more because I´m very good at my job after years spent learning it. I left your pathetic state as a young man seven years ago. I wanted to raise a family and didn´t want to fight your stupid laws and thieving tax code every step of the way. You get no taxes off of what is now a pretty handsome income.

I will be "going Galt" in the next 10 years (if we make it that long), and then you get nothing. I will relocate to a red state, pay cash, and shake my head as I watch your collapse from a distance.

The bums will always lose. Do you hear me Lebowski? The bums will always lose.

Take it from Gov. Moonbeam. Can you say detached from reality? The state is bankrupt. Property values are falling and more and more legal residents are moving to Colorado and elsewhere every year. And that´s the good news. At least three cities have declared bankruptcy. With many more to come.

About 10 years ago, through an act of fate, I ended up standing right next to Jerry Brown in a meeting of the Board of the Port of Oakland. It was just before he became Mayor of Oakland.

I apologize to all here for my failure of nerve and a missed opportunity.

So, it is coming time to move out of California. So my question: do I move to Texas, where I can be among people of my kind, or to Virginia, where I can help conservatives re-take the majority?

"Disproportionately extracted from the national wealth". I´ll bet Jugears wishes he had thought of that one. He´ll probably steal it from Moonbeam and use it to write an executive order to take more of your money.

The whacked out thing is that idiots like Jerry Brown think that earned income (salary) of 60,000/yr is "disproportionately blessed". Of course the cost of living in California is already one of the highest in the country. Stupid is as stupid does. I hope he sees a huge reduction of revenues (a la Laffer).

#17, come on over here to the Old Dominion. We got plenty of room and a good solid conservative governor, Bob McDonnell. Unfortunately, somehow the electorate chose a complete idiot Tim Kaine as Senator, but we´ll have a chance to replace Mark Warner in 2014. I retired from the military here vs my home state of NJ and have been very happy.

This is a scary trend, though, but I think Moonbeam overstates the case. Calif is a state of unparalleled natural beauty, but with idiots in power there for years, it is going broke and broker.

I find it ironic that financially conservative republican run states are in the black and ALL demonrat run states are in the red. There isn´t a demonrat anywhere who can´t think of some more wasteful spending. They keep doing the same thing over and over and over and expecting different results. Pfft.

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion
Washington Post, by Kimberley Winston    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 10:46:11 PM     Post Reply
“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

Grandma Hillary Is a
Double-Edged Sword in 2016

When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama

Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst
since 2008, as GOP brand surges

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

Colorado Democrats

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
