It’s Taxing

Blog Post

There’s a lot in the news now about climate change, because a new ice age is climate change…and it’s clearly President Trump’s fault. Unless you’re in France, where the narrative has changed, and they don’t want a new weather tax.
California is kicking around the idea of taxing computer texting as a means to defeat the weather. I’m sure that the people there would be thrilled to pay more in taxes if it’s going to fight a headwind or to turn down the temperature of the Sun a few degrees. 
Eliminating plastic drinking straws in some progressive communities was a good first step in showing the world how it’s done. Most of California is ‘straw optional’ and waiters give you a choice. At the same time, plastic water bottles are consumed in the millions every day and make their way to landfills — a few by percentage, are recycled.
Stopping pollution is important for its own sake, but there’s no evidence that plastic drinking straws contributed to either the global warming hoax or to the coming ice age.

Angry Hondurans marched in Tijuana, demanding $50,000 each and assuring the US Taxpayers that if they were paid the danegeld, they would go home. It didn’t work for English who paid off Vikings 1300 years ago and I doubt that it would work in the case of Hondurans in Mexico, but nice try, right? I wouldn’t be surprised if California paid them each $50K to hop the wall and set up residence in the Golden State. Maybe they could tax existing California residents for breathing air and give the money to the new voters. An Air Tax is very progressive. Since everything else is taxed, that’s about all that’s left to tax in the Golden State.

And from the Russia File
Member of the Czar’s Imperial
Guard — before the revolution.
Yeah, I just like the picture.

A young, ruthless executive died and went to hell. 
When he got there, he saw one sign that said Capitalist Hell, and another that said Socialist Hell. In front of the Socialist Hell was an incredibly long line, while there was no one in front of the Capitalist Hell. 
So the executive asked the guard, “What do they do to you in Socialist Hell?” 
“They boil you in oil, whip you, and then put you on the rack,” the guard replied. 
“And what do they do to you in Capitalist Hell?” 
“The same exact thing,” the guard answered. 
“Then why is everybody in line for Socialist Hell?” 
“Because in Socialist Hell, they’re always out of oil, whips, and racks!”

  1. I heard some idiot California lawmaker (redundant, I know) wants the Text Tax to be retroactive five years.

    Aside from the fact that I think that's unconstitutional, can you imagine how big that tax bill is going to be for your average kid who uses texting about billion times more than the actual "phone" part of their phone?

  2. I heard the text tax was to offset the tens of millions they were losing providing free phones for poor people. Exactly what kind of phones are they providing for free? You can get a basic Tracfone for about $8.00 per month. Ironic that those free phones include unlimited texting.

  3. California politicians seem to be testing the frog in the heated pot theory. What happens when the frog dies?

  4. Wow. Just, wow.
    I hope Kalifornia has outlawed those plastic rings that hold six and eight pack bottles and cans. Those are the real danger to living things.

  5. I like everything about this post, especially the closing infographic of the Czarist Imperial Guard. The evil Bolsheviks ruined a lot.

  6. Kommiefornia is ramping up the stoopid! Sigh… And Macron apparently has gone into hiding… LOL

  7. The days of lounging on peaceful sidewalk cafes along the Champs de Elysee taking in the spring Paris air are over. Now you can't get away from the stench of burning cars and tires. Socialists always wreck their environs. They can't help themselves.

  8. Linda – I always cut mine up to prevent ensnarement by wildlife if they should end up where they don't belong – which is not likely as I don't litter.

  9. There are also a lot of homeless Muslims on the boulevards of Paris, pissing and dumping these days (it's very progressive). What once was a very nice place to visit is not anymore – though it may be Islamaphobic to suggest that.

  10. California is pushing the liberal agenda to the max. Macron may be poisoned by his Illuminati masters who are grooming a replacement.

  11. The Czars, much like the Bourbon Kings, were out of touch. Macron is likewise completely out of touch, thinking that the public will support the weather tax, giving their money to the third world.

  12. Obamaphones are expensive. Illegal aliens and homeless people want those $1,000 i-phones with unlimited plans.

  13. Yes, it's unconstitutional, but the liberals want a "living Constitution" where all those problems would be managed.

  14. I don't think there's much difference between "I'm law-abiding" and "I'm only following orders". Liberals would not have taken over the world if conservatives didn't obey their policies. The conservative is the submissive compliment to the liberal's dominant. It's a codependent relationship. The liberal cracks the whip and the conservative jumps to obey, because it makes them feel good to obey

    Codependency is a controversial concept for a dysfunctional helping relationship where one person supports or enables another person's addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement. Among the core characteristics of codependency, the most common theme is an excessive reliance on other people for approval and a sense of identity.

    Do you expend all of your energy in meeting your partner's needs? Do you feel trapped in your relationship? Are you the one that is constantly making sacrifices in your relationship? Then you may be in a codependent relationship.

    Co-dependency is a learned behavior that can be passed down from one generation to another. It is an emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual's ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as "relationship addiction" because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. The disorder was first identified about ten years ago as the result of years of studying interpersonal relationships in families of alcoholics. Co-dependent behavior is learned by watching and imitating other family members who display this type of behavior.

  15. Used to be that mimes pestering Paris pedestrians were the vermin that everybody tried not to make eye contact with. Now muslims. What's worse? I'm still not a mime fan.

  16. Fredd, I am just old enough to remember the Cafe Wars in the early 60s
    during the time that France was having a difficult time in Algeria.
    Almost 4,000 dead and over 10,000 wounded.
    A favorite technique was a shooter ensconced on the back of a scooter armed with a submachine gun to interrupt the opposition's lunch.
    Bombing were also very effective in killing the opposition and collateral damage was not an issue.
    I recall reading that an amazing number of Algerians that were captured by the gendarmes were found drowned after they had tried to escape by swimming the Seine while wearing handcuffs.

  17. I think that some of the cocktail parties this Christmas Season in France might have different topics than they usually do. Of course, because they are French and speak the language of love, the parties of the elite usually end the same way.
