New York Getting Bluer

More and more, New York is getting more socialist

More and more, conservatives are leaving the state.

More and more, New York is getting bluer,

Which in turn makes it more socialist.

I figure, in a decade or two there won’t be a conservative in the whole state.  Then we get to see what happens when socialists run things.

Then again, we are getting something of a preview already.  A good look at California will give us a good hint.  Then of course, a good look at almost every major city will give us a clue.  Every time those characters in Memphis think about raising taxes, it drives my property value up a dollar or three.  When people start looking for property just outside Memphis, it makes my little house worth just a little more, and the property they left behind a little less.

Those libs running Chicago have demonstrated how quickly they can take a bad situation and make it worse.

I simply do not understand how the African-Americans can look at what all the dems have not accomplished for them and yet they stand steadfast behind them at every election.

Let me state this as clearly as I can.  Socialists are not for the poor.  Their methods insure the poor remain poor.  America is the only nation where a poor man can become a multi-billionaire, if he puts his mind to it.  The reason is because of the capitalist system and the freedom to do what you want.  The socialists do not tax the rich, only those who are trying to get rich.

Consider, if I have ten million dollars, I can lock it up and take a few dollars out every now and then.  I’d not pay a dollar on income taxes.  On the other hand, if I make a million dollars a year and it is taxed at 60%, It will likely take me thirty years to save the ten million.  Hence, it is the man who works the hardest who is penalized by paying the higher taxes.  On the other hand, if I don’t work at all and rely on the welfare state, I neither work nor pay taxes.

Therefore, the only people penalized are the ones who work.  It is why every time New York raises their taxes, their revenues go down.  It is also why the rich leave town.  …and, it stands to reason, if the only people paying taxes are poor or indigent, the tax revenues will be greatly be reduced eventually to practically nothing.

I don’t know why I should have to explain this.  It has been demonstrated time and again.  Yet, when those socialists start talking free this and free that, it seems all past memories are instantly destroyed.  Everyone likes those handouts.

Just remember.  If you want to see what a future socialist US will look like, look to New York and California.  You don’t need a crystal ball to see our future.

The Game

I write stories. Admittedly, most of my stories are unbelievable. If you will permit, let me tell you the story of two football teams and the game they played. Mostly, each team has their color. In this case, one team is red, the other blue.

Naturally, the officials wear black and white striped jerseys. It signifies that they are neutral, or at least they are supposed to be. All calls should be unbiased and objective as possible. Now and then, they miss a call, it is normal. They are human. However, in this game, to be honest, they should wear blue. Effective, they have merged with and become part of the blue team. They do little to hide it.

To make matters worse, some of the red team help the blue team. I assure you it isn’t by accident. Indeed, instead of their red jerseys, they should wear purple, maybe blue.

Okay. Some of you figured out what I’m getting at. For those who don’t let me spell it out. The red team are the Republicans. The blue team are the Democrats. The officials are the socialist news media, the ones that are supposed to be neutral. Then of course, there are those who call themselves Republican, but are really dems in disguise. That is to say, RINOs, Republicans In Name Only. I would mention a few names, but what difference does it make. You likely already know them. After all, they don’t hide it.

Repeatedly, complaints come from the crowds. It would seem that the Republicans can’t get anything done. Is it no wonder? Is there anyone who can’t figure out why?

The liberal media keep complaining that President Trump is trying to stifle the news media. Please, let me remind all who read this. When a government becomes socialist, the first thing that goes is the free press. In a socialist country, the government owns everything. They tell everyone what to do say or think. …and that includes the press.

So before you write that lie, just think. Would you get away with that in Russia, or China. Maybe you think a free press in welcomed in Cuba or Venezuela. It’s not going to happen. If are in any of those countries and you write things the leadership doesn’t like, you don’t get stifled; you get thrown in prison, or maybe you just disappear. It has been know to happen.

The Problems with Tyrants

“From each according to his ability, to each according to each according to his need.”  Many attribute the above quote to the Bible.  It shows how little they know about the Bible.  It also shows that they don’t have much knowledge of history.  The quote is from Karl Marx in 1875.  It is part of his concept of communism.  It was part of his plan for world wide paradise.

Since then, it has been tried many times without success.  In the USSR it was tried, failed and then modified. The government that the Soviet Union lived under was not communism.  Quickly, they realized that true communism won’t work.

To fix the problem, they came up with a leader, a tyrant.  Then China tried communism and, again, they modified it.  They appointed a leader who was, believe it or not, a tyrant.  Cuba tried communism.  Again, their leader was a tyrant.

Have you noticed the pattern?  To make communism work, it takes a leader.  Invariably, the leader must be a tyrant.  Even then, it doesn’t work.  Central government doesn’t work.  It is horribly inefficient.  People make decisions who are inept.  (as an example, people in one location is oversupplied [resulting in spoiled food] while in other locations people starve.)  People who are lazy don’t work without taskmasters.  Why should they?  They don’t receive any reward for their efforts.  If they do nothing, they still get their share.  Finally, the tyrants ride in limos and private jets while the rest of the population walk or ride in horse carts.  The tyrants eat caviar while the public has a meager diet of beans and, if they are lucky, a little bread.

It is exactly what the dems complain about in the US. Yet most of us have healthy diets, a roof over our heads and even air-conditioning.  Then again, I guess there isn’t much need for air-conditioning in Moscow.

I guess that the communism might stand halfway succeed as capitalism if the leader were a good person.  The problem is that tyrants are tyrants.  The only people they think about are themselves and a small circle of those around them.  If you have any doubts about what I am writing about, ask those in North Korea.

Oh.  Yest that’s right.  You can’t.  The tyrant running the country won’t let you.

If someone tells you how wonderful socialism works, you might want to consider the above.  You might want to think about how well it is working in Venezuela (also ruled by a tyrant).  You might want to ask them to name one country where socialism works.

You might also think about how well Obama Care has worked here.  I’m not sure this country will ever recover from that one.  I know I won’t.
