It’s Time To Stick It
To the Blue States

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/7/2012 8:47:46 PM

After years of campaigning for higher taxes, it is beginning to dawn on liberal residents of blue states that the effects, for them, will not be pretty. Most of the nation’s “rich”–those earning over $250,000 a year, or, depending on President Obama’s mood, $175,000–live in the blue states. Moreover, the deductions that are likely slated for reduction or elimination, including state taxes and home mortgages, mostly benefit blue state residents. So the New York Times, a prime agitator for higher taxes, appears to be having second thoughts: As they continue to wrangle over the year-end fiscal deadline

They will escape to Red States and infect them with their liberalism.

You don´t feed cancer.

You excise it or starve it ...

... but don´t let it spread.

Or maybe those of us in the red States will change the ones who come here.

We aren´t going to win this tax battle; we can only hope that Obama and the Democrats own this economy after they get their way. But I look forward to the blue states getting hit hard!

Residents of Blue states who voted for Obama need to have punishing taxes levied on them ... these are the people who just LOVE to spend other people´s money except, of course, now it will be THEIR money. California has done that in spades to achieve a financial debacle there that no other state wants to experience. Obama is THEIR guy so what´s the problem? What you sow so shall you reap, Richie Rich. And stay out of my state fools.

They move to Red states to escape the liberal hell they have created in their home states.

Then many start whining about how much better it was ´back home´.

Then the whiners start working to recreate the cesspits they just escaped from.
And they vote for the same kind of liberals they did ´back home´.

These kind of escapees have pretty well ruined much of North Carolina, Florida and many other parts of the south.

The first deduction that has to go is the one for state income taxes. Those of us in the red states should not to have to subsidize the blue states that have high state income taxes.

Just as there are exemptions for corporations that don´t want the Obamboozlercare (so long as they play nice) there could well be tax exemptions in the works for top earners (so long as they play nice). This is how Marxists build a following.

By all means stick it to the blue states - oh but I live in a very blue state with no hope unless it is split down the middle into red and blue - even then that won´t help as my half ,the blue half, has all the unions in it and the red half the free thinkers. Got any good potato soup recipes anyone?

Obama wants to raise taxes. His first inclination is to raise everyone´s taxes and blame it on the GOP. His strategy is to force the GOP to keep proposals until they create new revenue without raising taxes this year. Then next year he will take the new revenue and then raise taxes. I´d rather have everyone pay the Clinton rates than create new revenue this year AND then pay the Clinton tax rates in addition in a year.

If every red state got rid of their state income tax it might mean a huge wealth transfer to them from the blue states. Obamacare is a huge opportunity for this as well. Every state that refuses to cooperate will wind up being subsidized by blue states. Another way to make it more difficult for blue staters to move to red states would be for red states to refuse to recognize credentials from blue states, and force them to obtain new credentials. I´ll tell you one thing, if I ever escape from California I will never tell anyone where I came from.

#2, it certainly hasn´t worked like that in Colorado. Many Californians fled here, and now I suppose everyone moving here for legal marijuana will turn this state permanently blue.

The blue states are all the ones going into a death spiral. Maybe sticking it to them will finally wise them up. Or maybe not, because that´s where the uber-grifters reside.

A some point the useful idiots wake up and realize, "Where did these chains come from, they are not laying lightly on my shoulders". Communists can not allow them to use their voter fraud and other skills against their masters. Historically speaking the useful idiots get the plastic bag treatment, pol pot style. Happened in Russia, China, Cuba and Cambodia. The greatest punishment is allways reserved for the useful idiots. The conservative opposition gets the re-education camp. We are the ones that make the useful idiot skull pyramids

The manifest problem with the "sticking it to the blue states" is that O really sticks it to the non-blue upper earners of the blue states. Think seriously about that.

These wealthy Obama supporters are the super rich. No tax increase will affect their lifestyles. But for the ones who are still working, enjoy your Obamacare taxes, your increased rates of tax on long-term capital gains, your 43% tax on qualified dividends. Have fun sending your money to Barack. He´ll be jetting around the US and the world calling you a bunch of greedy rich people. He knows, he is a greedy rich person. ($16 million from his books through 2011.)

It will all be fun and games until the Treasury auction comes and no buyers are there. Then he will have to turn to your IRA and 401(k) accounts. Sorry about that. You are the ones that voted for him.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
