Despite Tax Increase, California
State Revenues in Freefall

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Chriss W. Street

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/8/2012 10:33:23 AM

California State Controller John Chiang has announced that total state revenue for the month of November 2012 fell $806.8 million, or 10.8%, below budget. Democrats thought they could hammer “the rich” by convincing voters to pass Proposition 30 to create the highest state income tax in the nation. But it now appears that high income earners have already “voted with their feet” by moving themselves and their businesses out of state, resulting in over $1 billion shortfall in corporate and income taxes last month and the beginning of a new financial crisis. Passage of Proposition 30 set off euphoria

If California had more businesses and more people with decent jobs and homes they owned (that would follow with more businesses), they´d see more tax revenue. Trouble is, the hyper-taxation drives away businesses, downsizes or closes up those that remain, puts people out of work and uses up their wealth. Revenues drop. What a dilemma Sacramento has created!

Here´s a clue. When you attract an unlimited number of third world illegals with free stuff and they elect even more people who give them more free stuff, they (illegals plus illegal-pandering legislators) turn your state/country into a third world hellhole.

Now we have a President doing this to the entire country. Pretty soon there won´t be state left that you can run to.

I live in California, and it feels a lot like being on the deck of the Titanic, waving to the people leaving in life boats. Two days after the election, a soft-ware company here in San Diego announced that it was moving to Texas. Employees have till the end of the year to decide whether to move with the company or take their chances finding another job here. (Good luck with that.) Then, our very best neighbors on the block--the people you call in an emergency, the people who organize block parties--announced that they are moving to Texas. They have a small business and want to expand. No way can they do that here. Their house is up for sale and they´ll move as soon as escrow closes. Meanwhile, another house on our block has gone back to the bank. But our dynamite legislature is preoccupied with outlawing plastic bags and insisting that the contribution of gays be taught to elementary school students.

Revenues in freefall despite tax increases. I´m shocked, shocked!

Liberals are so stupid they literally thought that businesses and high-earners would be euphoric, too, over the chance to provide even more lavishly for government workers and parasites (redundant, I know) who actually voted for this piece of crap.

We don´t have to bother with secession. We´ll soon have our own pleasant, well-run states populated by sensible and responsible people; and they will have their self-righteous, politically-correct, parasite-riddled hell holes.

My son is a college student and still lives in California. He called me awhile ago and told me to send plastic grocery bags to his Grandma (my mom). The county on the central coast where they live has already banned them.

I miss the beautiful scenery California has to offer, but I don´t think I´ll ever miss the lefty lunacy.

I live in the Central Coast where the plastic bags are banned AND all retailers have to charge 10 cents a bag for paper bags. It won´t be long until the articles will be flooding the news of disease being spread by the dirty reusable bags people are forced to haul into the stores. And I too hear the stories of businesses closing.

Despite all of that, after spending four years in solid traveling in all of the 48 states, there is no place I´d rather live.

Sigh....I mourn for my state...the idiots in Sac are so stupid they couldn´t pour p*** out of a boot if the instructions were printed on the heel. We have contemplated moving, but with my Mom with moderate to severe dementia, there is no moving at this time. We live in one of the poorist counties in the state, with agriculture as our major business. Lots of businesses have closed, it´s a sad state of affairs.

They bulldozed the orchards I loved in 1968 and replaced them with freeways and shopping centers, in the Santa Clara Valley. In 1979 I returned and stayed with my father, while trying for months to find a place to rent. It would take two hours to drive the 10 miles to work on the freeway. The illegals already had most of the jobs and housing, and it was no longer the California I grew up in. I gave up and moved to New Mexico. Unfortunately, the Cal liberals followed me, and they shut down logging, ranching, and mining. They are like a pestilence that destroys an area and moves on to the next.

Since Obama et al knows all this - that raising taxes lowers revenue - what is the reason for doing this to the entire country? The fact that he doesn´t want to eliminate loopholes - like the ones his friends from GE and Warren Buffet use - means that the "rich" aren´t his actual target - at least the ones who support him.

I have to imagine that his real target are independent thinking smaller businesses - entrepreneurs who want the government off their back. If Obama eliminates the middle class then we´ll only have the controllers and the takers and the takers will wake up someday and realize they are all equally miserable with no way out since they´re both dependent on the government.

I work with a guy originally from Eritrea in Africa which he tells me was the most industrial country in Africa with a ton of Italian influence. His mother speaks fluent Italian, cooks Italian from scratch, etc. But then someone took over by force and now they are the least industrialized country in Africa...which is saying a lot. Seems to me this is what Obama has in mind - turning us into a third world country while he and his friends live like rich Arabs.

Much of the budgetary woes California is in now can be attributed to the power of politics corrupting even some of the decent legislators in Sacramento. It´s like an addictive drug. Benjamin Franklin was right when he said, "when people find that they can vote themselves free money, that will usher the end of our republic". Case in point are Detroit, Chicago, and Sacramento.

They started with temporary increase of corporate taxes, sales taxes, and income taxes. The lost corporate tax revenue, raised money with the sales tax (unavoidable) and lost a little on the income tax. You just knew that this wouldn´t convince them that tax increases didn´t work. So now they´ve made it part of the tax code and surprise, they lose revenue. California won´t let the oil companies drill for oil they know is there, won´t let the farmers have the water from the reservoirs built for that purpose, and have driven the motion picture industry to film in other states. Where are they going to find money to tax?

That´s the funniest part of this article, the last paragraph. "As panic spreads that goosing taxes on the rich may have created enough “tax flight” that the California will actually collect less taxes, there was welcome news that a business had committed to opening in the State. Executives of the 99 Cents Only Stores Inc. proclaimed they would be opening a new location in Beverly Hills on formerly posh Rodeo Drive."

Perhaps they will be able to sell to the squatters living in the abandoned houses in Beverly Hills once the rich actors have set up residency in another state.

They are doing it wrong. They need to tax everyone one-hundred percent. The dummies who keep electing tax collectors don´t realize it´s not about raising taxes. It is about economic equalizing to the lowest common denominator.

The worst part is that the responsible uneducateds will flee the state and infest the rest of the nation. Someone alluded to FLA. It is full of NY socialists.

We need to get back to letting the states decide issues such as how much to spend on social programs. If states like California want to spend a lot of money, and tax their citizens accordingly, then that is thier business.

The Federal government is broke. A centralized power in Washington DC is not a good thing. We should cut back Federal spending and federal taxes, and let the states decide how much to spend and how much to tax.

This is why we need a new political party to replace the Repugs. Neither the Dimms nor the Repugs want to decentralize power outside of Washington.

Poster #29: Since Obama et al knows all this - that raising taxes lowers revenue

This has been in the public record for five decades, President Kennedy said this when lowering taxes. 0bama admitted he knew this to be true in a pre-primary debate with HiLIARy in 2008. The moderator, Charles Gibson referenced specific tax increases and decreases with Reagan, Clinton and Bush and their inevitable consequences.

0bama then said, "Yes, but, I want to raise taxes to be fair." He has a distorted definition of "fair," he doesn´t care about lowered revenue.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
