Tax Breaks for the Rich

Over the years, the dems complain all the time about tax breaks for the rich. Now they are in favor of one. They want to reinstate the tax breaks for state income tax and real estate(known as SALT). Actually, there is already such a tax break. People can deduct certain state and local taxes on their federal taxes if they itemized. However, there is a limit. They can only deduct $10,000.

I find it odd that the dems are not happy with that. They are currently trying to get the cap raised, or better, removed. Guess what? Only the the rich would profit from the change. For instance, it would include folks with a big property tax bill, and/or those paying a lot of state income tax. That sounds like the rich to me.

So, it sounds to me as if they seek a tax break for the rich. If not, tell me how I am wrong. I mean who is going to pay state and local income taxes and property taxes of over 10 grand. Most of us poor folks don’t get close to that on our best years. On my best year, my gross income was only 4 times that. My state and local taxes barely reached a thousand dollars. Their proposed change certainly wouldn’t come close for me, even if I wasn’t retired.

Then again, I live in Mississippi, not New York or New Jersey.

Once again, the folks up there in the northeast want us to help pay for their lifestyle. Perhaps I should rephrase that. They want us to help pay for the lifestyle of the rich — northeast or not.

Isn’t it bad enough that they are using gas taxes intended to build and maintain highways to subsidize their subways and trains.

Rules, Rules, Rules

One thing I’ve got to say about those dems. They do love to play by the rules, as long as they get to make them up as we go along. They were the first to alter the rules on the filibuster. Last election, they altered the rules in mass, even though that was against the rules. They claimed it was UN-American for people to challenge the presidential election, though they did it many times before. By the way, they are now challenging the election of a representative. It would seem the rule they made concerning the challenging of elections is that they can, we can’t. Now they want to pack the Supreme Court. I wonder, just what rules will they want to change next?

A Message to the CEOs

Pepsi is a good alternative to Coke. Sam’s Cola tastes as good and is far less expensive. When I go out to eat, I just might start drinking Ice tea or water. It is likely better for me anyway.

I used to fly quite a bunch, especially when I repaired computers. I preferred American Airlines. I don’t have the need or desire to fly as much but if I did, it would not be American or Delta. They likely won’t miss me but there are others who feel as I do when I say I’d rather take the bus than give them a dollar.

As for the major leagues, I gave them up long ago… all of them. I’ve started watching college games. I even go to little league games in the area. I found them far more interesting and they don’t toss in a bunch of left wing propaganda. Those ten, eleven and twelve-year-olds know the purpose of the game. The old pros seem to have forgotten it.

I am not even a drop in the water. The above folks will likely never miss me. I will not even show up on their stats. However, I am sure I am not alone and those stats just might show that they made a bad decision.

Far more important they might all remember this. We need farmers. We need truck drivers. We need storekeepers and we need homes. Coca-cola… not so much. Without pro basketball, baseball or football, some might go into sports withdrawal, but we CAN do without them. It is a convenience to be able to visit relatives who are far away, but we don’t have to. And, as I mentioned before, there is always the bus. Maybe those of you who sit in your ivory towers and have taken bailout dollars should remember where that money came from. The government might have signed the checks, but part of it came from me and people like me. There are over 70 million people in the country who will remember what you have done. For that matter, there might be a few dems who will remember it too, such as the people in Georgia. There just might be a few who own restaurants, cafes and hotels near the ball bark. There were also a few people who worked there. But then, why should you care. You managed to survive for another day or two. That is the attitude of business today. Never mind the decades. Just, let’s just survive today.

Fear

Many of us learn fear from our youth. For some people the fear is not natural. Some people refuse to leave their homes. Others, like me, fear heights. Fortunately, my fear of heights is more-or-less under control. Still, I refuse to go up in those rides where all they do is lift you to great heights. Some, let you rapidly descend and slow you just before you reach the ground.

I guess my fear of heights does have some basis. To be sure, the height won’t cause any harm. In general most people survive the fall. It’s that sudden stop I fear.

Some have great fear of the dark while most of us know that it isn’t the dark that can cause us harm. Now on the other hand, all those treacherous gremlin that hide in the dark….

Most of us, to some degree, fear the IRS. If you don’t believe me, just tell someone that the IRS is going to audit his last five years of returns. I suppose, to some degree, this is a good fear. It keeps most of us honest. On the other hand, the not so honest have more fear than most of us. Sometimes it nags at such people. It is the ol’ “What if” question that comes to mind, at least once or twice a day.

Often times we try to destroy what we fear. Sometimes, this is without reason. Sometimes we have a reason.

Take for instance the dems, the general news media, and especially those who have lied to the public. In general, they fear the truth and as such they try to destroy it.

This speaks well of President Trump. Those that have lied, cheated and stolen, or those who have aided and abetted those who have, have a good reason to fear the former president. He represents the truth. And, if there is one thing these folks have to fear is the truth, or those who speak the truth. It is no wonder there are so many trying to destroy President Trump and those who support him.

If they don’t fear the truth, then why won’t they let him speak? Why did they take him down from all the social sites?

It looks to me as if they are running scared. Because they fear him, they try to destroy him.

Moreover, it is a pattern. Anywhere you see someone trying to destroy the truth, it is a sign that they have something to hide. Remember Ms. Clinton and her E-mails. She feared the truth getting out more than she feared the penalty of the law. Then again, she does have a D after her name. She did know she had a good chance of getting away with it. So she successfully broke the law and hid the truth. As such, we, the public will never know what she hid.

DeRoy Murdock Said Something Worth Repeating

The Dems like to say they want to compromise. Well DeRoy Murdock came up with an excellent idea, though he might not have meant it as a compromise.

The Dems claim that the people who live in Washington DC get taxed but they get no meaningful representation. Well, what Mr. Murdock suggest is that we don’t tax the people who legitimately live within the limits of district.

I would suggest that the Federal government would not miss the revenues and it would be good for the city. People might even move there in an effort to make money instead of bribing congressmen. To be sure, those who want to live outside city and lobby would not be eligible. They would actually have to move in and become residents year-round.

Now let’s see. It would drive the value of the land up. It would somewhat extract all the liberals out of Virginia and Maryland. Moreover, it might actually result in some industry the city besides politics and tourism. It would also free monies to go for city infrastructure.

The thing is, who knows what all would happen after a few capitalist decide to move in and replace the liberals. They might actually have a city befitting of our great nation.

Thing is, it will never happen. Like all good ideas, the dems won’t let it happen. Besides, what they really want has nothing to do with the representation of the citizens of the district. It is all about power. If the district were to be added as a state, the dems would pick up another representative and two senators. To them, that is power. So, never mind the great idea. Their idea of the important thing is to keep control of both chambers and the presidency. Then of course, they will want the Supreme Court as well. That way, their kingdom will be complete and no one will be able to stand against them, other than China.

Oh. Did I mention they already control the media. What little conservative media remains will have to transmit from a ship off shore. It will become Radio Free America. Invariably, it will need to put up with harassment from the Union of Socialist America

The Goals of the Dems

  1. They obliterated the border security.
  2. They Have driven us well toward national bankruptcy plans to repay their contributors and leftist supporters.
  3. They allowed countless diseased people from all over the earth while managing to keep people arriving legally at airports under quarantine.
  4. The governors of four major states have managed to cause the deaths of unknown hundreds, thousands by putting diseased people into nursing homes.
  5. They have kept our schools and businesses closed for almost a year. Moreover, they hope to elongate that as much as possible.
  6. They caused at least one major plant to move to Mexico and, naturally, their plans call for many more. In this case it benefited Ford. Those that worked at the plant, not so much. To be sure, there will be no apologies or explanations. At best, they tell them to find jobs making solar panels, or maybe windmills.
  7. With all the illegals entering the country they have managed to increase the unemployment. On the other hand, they are decreasing wages. Cheaper to pay a Latino to clean hotel rooms than American citizens…of any ethnicity.
  8. They have just about ruined New York. Everyone who can is headed south, where the governors know how to run things. Worse, they have destroyed the tourist trade. Everyone knows that if they go to the Big Apple, they won’t be able to find a place to sit down and have a pizza. Some people are stuck in New York as value of their property has bottomed out.

It would seem that the dems managed this all in less than two months. That is fast than I expected. Given three more years, who knows what kind of things they will attain.

It is a fortunate thing that President Trump called for Project Warp Speed (the nine month development of vaccines). Had he not, the dems would still be fumbling around through the red tape and not even Biden or Harris would have received a shot for at least two more years. By that time, many more would have died and the economy would be totally in the tank. That would make things just right for the dems. The Chinese Communists would be able to just march into this country and we would be able to do little or nothing about it. Moreover, they would likely make their approach from Mexico. They would have no need for a sea landing.

The New Royalty

After The Revolutionary War, almost immediately, they offered the throne of the new nation to George Washington. He refused it and suggested that the idea of a throne for the new country was a bad idea. He said something to the effect that they had just fought to free themselves from a throne.

It was totally unprecedented. Always before, those who led their nation to victory assumed the throne. Throughout history it was the pattern. In fact, I cannot ever recall it ever happening any other way, certainly in the major countries.

Perhaps it came close in Greece and Rome, but, in the end, they both had their tyrants, their kings. Though they were not known as such, it amounted to the same thing. Throughout Europe kings rose up and fell. Some kingdoms simply disintegrated, others were conquered, or a combination of the two as with Rome.

The news spread all around the world and it shocked those who heard of it. Then, Washington was voted to be president of the new nation. After serving two terms, he left though they wanted him to stay. He said that no on man should ever serve more than two terms. It again rocked the world. Washington not only turned down the power once, but twice.

To be sure, he likely didn’t want it. More than that, he likely felt he should set a good example for those who followed. Apparently, Roosevelt didn’t feel the same. He was elected 4 times. I don’t know if he would have run for a fifth term had he lived. It is one answer we will never know this side of eternity.

Nonetheless, he established some patterns. Since that time, people sought power. To be sure, they sought power before, but it was on a new scale and it was for far different reasons. Before, people sought the power for the good they could do. Now, they just seek the power. It is now a race for royalty and it has become far more noticeable after President Trump took office. You see, he was not one of the royalty. He was not supposed to ascend to the highest office in the land. He was an outsider. It was not his turn to rule. Besides he graduated from U Penn, not Harvard or Yale. Even more, his degree was in business, not law or politics.

He rolled over all the royalty like a steam roller. More than that, he had the audacity to try to do the will of the people who elected him. He had the nerve to do what was good for American citizenry, not the one world order. He called out the other leaders who were taking the US for ride, which the rinos did not like. After all, they liked their business deals with China and the cheap labor from illegal immigrants. The dems didn’t like him building the wall either. He stopped the future potential democrat voters. After all, they plan was to turn Texas blue as they did California.

There was no doubt it. Something had to be done. Both the republican and democrat royalty had to get him out of office and it did not much how, even if they had to resort to illegal methods. Moreover, they had to discredit the movement he created. It was destroying all the progress they made in establishing their royalty.

I know not what all this royalty has in mind for us, but I do know what they have in mind for themselves. They want to set up a kingdom and they want to rule it. To be part of that kingdom, as with all royalty, there are qualifications. That means you must graduate from Yale or Harvard and you must come from the right family. If not, forget it. You will be as the rest of us. Now let me see. What did they used to call them? I think the word is peasants. I think they called them serfs. I think they called some of them slaves.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter the word they use. The result is the same. They will live like royalty. They will tell you what to do and you will do it. They will tell you what to think and you will think it. Mostly, don’t expect them to give up their thrones as Washington did. That is not going to happen. They will be fighting among themselves to see who will be “king of the mountain,” or in this case, ruler of the world.

It was what Alexander the Great wanted. It is what the Caesars wanted. It is what the English kings and Napoleon were after. It was the goal of all three of the axis nations as well as the Soviets. It is not knew. It is only disguised in a new container.

Gov. Noem Nailed It

So far Gov. Noem has my favorite speech. Then again, President Trump hasn’t had his turn. regardless, Gov. Noem had a line that is well worth repeating and repeating. I’m not putting it in quotes because I’m not sure it is verbatim.

The socialists want to be the shepherds. The problem is that that means we have to be the sheep.

The only thing I would add to that is that they are awfully poor shepherds. They have caused countless deaths and immeasurable grief. Then, of all things, they stand in front of the microphones and beat on their chests and brag of all the good they did.

Nonetheless, her statement does sum it up better than I have heard before; they want to be the leaders and they don’t want us to have any say in the matter. They just want us to follow like good little sheep and keep our mouths shut.

Let me give you and example. Pelosi admitted to holding back on the China virus aid to make the prior president look bad. However, it was more than that. There was a secondary benefit and even then they knew it. By waiting, they were able to pass all the stuff they wanted to pass…all the stuff they knew they would never get past the Senate. They even had hopes of passing the $15 minimum wage. Also, thanks to their strategy, they are able to use tax dollars to promote and pay for abortions. (One of the gods)

As I have said many times before, it is all about control. They have no empathy for those who lost family to the China virus. The only reason they are providing help now is so that they might gain more control. Only 10% of the bill will go to China relief; the rest to pet projects. So they give us the morsel so that they can gain control. There is no other purpose. Their is no sympathy. Their is no desire to help. In the end, their only desire is control. They want to turn us all into sheep who just follow their instructions without complaint.

… for Political Gain

Over 500 thousand people have died from the China virus. The dems have decided to take advantage of it. How? To put subways near San Francisco. To raise the minimum wages. To build big bridges (if the bridge is needed, let it be funded by a separate bill. It has nothing to do with the virus.) To bail out state governments that know not how to run states. I’m sure you get the idea.

If these ideas are so good, let them become law in their own bills. If they cannot become law on their own, maybe they ought not become law. Might I remind you, the dems have House, Senate and White House.

As a side note, those who have read my past posts realize I seldom used the term China virus. Now that Biden has kept those in federal employment from using the term, I will use it every chance I have. Indeed I will use it when I have not a reason to use it. Moreover, I urge anyone and everyone to do the same. It would seem that he too has no problem capitalizing on the death and tragedy of Americans killed by, in essence, biological warfare.

One more note for Biden: He keeps complaining the previous administration left him nothing to fight the virus. That is an outright lie and he knows it. Had it not been for President Trump, he’d not have have the vaccine for another 3 or 4 years yet. More over, he had millions of doses the minute that he took the oath, which he doesn’t seem to respect much.

A Tale of Two Governors

When I first considered this post, I also considered the title a tale of two states. Obviously, I borrowed the concept, “A Tale of Two Cities” and choosing the two state idea would fit the old title better but not the circumstance so much.

To be sure, both states are suffering but, on the other hand, the governors are in deep trouble. I’m sure that you have figured it out, that is, to whom and to which states I am referring. It would appear both governors have been disasters to their states and they love to blame it on others. At this point, it would appear that Newsom will soon be removed from being governor and will likely suffer a political death. Much the same can be said about Gov. Cuomo, but more so. He just might end up trading his expensive suits for a very plain and common orange jumpsuit.

To be truthful, I don’t think Cuomo will ever get convicted of anything, not with a democrat president, though the state just might find something for which to convict him. Now that would be a trial to be seen, a real trial in a real court. It would bear little resemblance to the mock trial held in The Senate recently.

I like the question a man asked the news-person today, “Is it really okay to invent evidence.” as they did against Trump. Well, if Cuomo is tried, the evidence will not be invented and if he is convicted, he will not just be removed from office, but he would, as they say, “…go directly to jail.”

As for Newsom, he will likely just find some big mansion to retire to and live out his life in disgrace. What real useful purpose would he serve. Naturally, he would want all his servants to wear space suits. He wouldn’t want to catch anything from them.
