Recently Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her new tax plan she would like to institute should we ever have the extreme misfortune of her occupying the Oval Office.
Her plan would call for a tax of 2% on wealth in excess of $50 million and a tax of 3% on wealth in excess of $1 billion.
It should be noted here that this is very different from income taxes. This is a tax on what you already have, not what you earn in any given year. This means that if one did nothing other than simply exist that one’s wealth would diminish over time eaten away by the government’s voracious appetite. By virtue of one simply having wealth and by a lack of virtue in the government, led by the covetous Lizzy Warren and her thieving cohorts, the fruits of one’s labors would waft away over time like the smoke from her teepee.
The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl yesterday.
I live in New England, in fact I live within earshot of Gillette Stadium.
I am a Patriots fan and enjoy watching the games during the season.
I too cheered all the big plays and when they won the game.
It is a pleasant distraction, a regalement.
But, I could do with a little perspective, please.
Imagine you’re a gun owner and you move to New York (and also try to imagine even a single reason why you would do that) and you walk into the town hall in your new town to apply for your New York State firearms license mistakenly thinking that the Bill of Rights is still the law of the land.
Congressman Swalwell is a Blood-Thirsty Totalitarian
Scratch a virtue signaling lefty and you’ll find a snarling, blood-thirsty totalitarian tyrant just beneath the surface.
They always start out trying to sound reasonable but when their ambitions are stymied you will see the militant side come out sooner rather than later. They want their way and dammit! they’re going to get it no matter who or what stands in their way.
Socialism doesn’t work.
It always starts out using the power of persuasion to promise utopia but when it fails, as it must due to the foibles of human nature, the powers that be, those true believers whose faith in socialism can never be shaken, realizing that starving people have very little to lose, send forth the capitalist funded, capitalist supplied troops to use the persuasion of power to force the non-compliant peons to continue to play by their defective rules against their collective wills.
What if you went into the town hall to register to vote and got a similar run-around as people in Massachusetts get when applying for a license to carry a firearm?
I was watching “The Fox News Specialists” show just now and the subject turned to the North Korean problem.
The regular panel this night was Ebony Williams, Kat Timpf and Lisa Booth filling in for Eric Bolling. The two “specialists” were Col. David Hunt (who twice voted for Barack Obama, ‘nuf said) and Krystal Ball whose parents apparently had a droll sense of humor.
I follow gun control issues very carefully and read quite a bit about this subject on the web including many comments to many articles. There is quite a bit written about so-called “assault rifles” lately due to several high profile atrocities that have occurred.
There is also a recurring theme that seems to be, “Why does anyone need these things? We need to ban them now!”
Let’s all be clear here; If this terrorist asshole in Orlando had been denied a permit or if these guns had been banned or if Obama had had a magic wand and waved it and made all the scary, black rifles disappear this still would have happened.
So here’s a shitty scenario, seems there’s lots of them these days. You get a call to see your doctor and he tells you that you have inoperable, terminal cancer. He goes on to say that if you do nothing you will be dead in six months or just after January 20th, 2017. Get it? However, there’s this new treatment that’s experimental and it’s a long shot but it might, emphasis on might, offer you some level of cure or perhaps just a chance to live a little longer.
