Obama in a press conference had the further audacity to parrot the false liberal mantra that corporations pay the least taxes in history and contribute nothing. HOGWASH! Obama only brings up Federal taxes and doesn't include all the fees, red tape, restrictions ETC. that one must jump through just to get things going. He also doesn't mention state AND local taxes as well as local laws rules and fees that one must pay and all the hoops to go through just to build something or create a single job.
When you total it all up, our business system in America, big and small, (in particular small business, the backbone of our economy and job sector.) Has never before in history been under assault. This is because liberal Democrats despise the private sector and despise independence. They want the government to hold a monopoly on all jobs and sources of income. They want YOU and I to be slaves to the government and bow down and grovel before the legislature just to get a job and a pay check. Government knows better.
Which can probably explain why the failed bailout plan is costing somewhere between 200k and a million dollars just to create a single low paying job. With that much money the private sector could pay out handfuls of those same jobs even better paying jobs. But liberals want the state to be in control instead of there being prosperity. To make matters worse, Democrats in most states have circumvented GOP efforts and have raised sales and other taxes and fees. These are generally regressive taxes that hurt the poor, the very people liberals falsely claim to support.
The situation is even more bleak in Liberal controlled states. In particular California, Vermont, New Jersey, Maine, New York and The state of Washington. In California, efforts are underway to raise taxes, cut benefits from those whose jobs were taken away by socialism and illegal aliens and to take away the independence of the industrial city of Vernon.
The city of Vernon which has a population of 100 is located in South Central Los Angeles. Its only residents live in a public housing building and it includes a few homeless who sometimes work odd jobs in the area. 44,000 people commute to Vernon each day to work in this safe haven from socialism. But the safe haven is cracking.
Vernon recently suffered a set back after a scandal involving corruption. City officials just like in Bell were responsible for pilfering the city treasury. This of course is nothing new whenever you depend on the government for a hand out. But liberals always want more communism as a solution for communism's failures.
Since the seventies, California liberals have tried to take away Vernon's independent status so that Los Angeles Democrats can sink their fangs into its prospering businesses. Now with the corruption scandal they might have good excuse and its sending shock waves throughout LA county.
Governor Rick Perry and other red state governors have already reached out to struggling Californians, giving comparisons of their business models to California's. Its nothing new. We've been through this before but liberals just whine and caterwaul that they are weaseling out of their obligations to pay their fair share to illegal aliens and lazy crack addicts on welfare who won't work. A more accurate view, They are weaseling out of the liberal demand to dig their own graves which liberals expect of all of us.
California leftists have already begun a campaign to punish businesses that try and leave the state. A friend of mine from Santa Barbara told me how he was in La La Land and was driving through Little Tokyo and came across billboards showing the state of Texas Lassoing the state of California and squeezing money out of it and redirecting to a website on how to save Vernon jobs.
Well liberals have their own plan. A retro active tax that would kick in if the business closed down and reopened in another state which would just all together kill the jobs benefiting absolutely no one. You create welfare recipients and more people who take from the treasury instead of putting it in. At least these ones are trying to work despite half a decade of leftist policy.
Other than that there is the usual plan, tax and tax again. Spend and spend again to create more government jobs. Never mind that for every job the state creates, handfuls disappear.
In the state of Vermont which probably May be even more left wing than California in some aspects, the state legislature has approved a so called universal health care plan. this plan is very eerily similar to the one the traitor Mitt Romney created. This will no doubt cost the already cash strapped state more than it can handle. Vermont was recently branded by several top economic think tanks including sperlings, moody's economy and Forbes as one of the worst states to conduct business. One can only fathom how they expect to pay for all this with their tax base gone. Then again Do liberals ever expect to owe anything in the end? Something to consider in light of the current debt crisis.
My former home state of Maine is in the troubles too. It is the worst state in America for jobs and has the 2nd or 3rd largest tax burden in the country. In addition public sector unions and communist agitators hold the state hostage. It has the largest state government and is among the poorest states in the nation. But even though they finally got a republican in Augusta, Governor LePage is fighting an uphill battle against overpaid government workers who want the state to continue its enslavement under communist oppression.
The terrible economy and bankrupt treasury have made it easy to cut back pensions but his move to remove a pro union mural and demands to test welfare bums for drugs are starting to create backlash. What happened in Wisconsin and Indiana could possibly happen in Augusta. If it does my hope is for the tea party to mobilize and demonstrate to Mainers just what really caused our bad economy.
And of course red states like Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Colorado continue to become a powerhouse for jobs and prosperity while blue states continue to bleed. The liberals continue to go into denial however. The Daily Kos for instance used phony job numbers to downplay the Texas miracle and many of them are actually GET THIS comparing Texas to China! HOW CAN YOU COMPARE TEXAS WITH CHINA! The State of Texas is a free state! The government wont confiscate your bank account, steal your property or limit your freedom for any reason! The constitution is applicable there! You might as well as compare New Hampshire to Maine or California while were at it. But that wont apply if you live in Austin or El Paso.
A friend of mine from New Hampshire was telling me this story. His High School Biology teacher had a fish tank with clown fish and anemone. The clown fish swim in the anemone to avoid predators and lure them to it to be eaten. Well the clown fish that was sold to him by this pet shop owner were sick and defective and were eaten by the anemone. The next morning when he showed up he saw the anemone was full. He brought it immediately to the pet shop and argued to the owner about what had happen. The pet shop owner denied everything even as the anemone began spiting up scales and bones.
The anemone clearly ate the clown fish but the owner argued and argued and they got into a shouting match. In the end he called the police and had the teacher escorted out of the pet shop. This is what we are seeing with liberals. The tax system and economic policies of Obama and the Democrats on federal and local levels are destroying jobs and Democrats continue to blame Bush, (even though he's been gone the past 3 years and Pelosi has been in charge these past 5)the tea party and EVEN THE UNEMPLOYED! You heard that right! If you remember my previous articles about SSI and so on one of the reasons liberals do this is to cover up the failure of government, a trait possessed by liberal totalitarian countries throughout history.
All this while government continues to fail and jobs continue to vanish or fly over to Texas and Middle America and government tightens its fist around our economy. With this in mind we must demand that our congressmen not raise taxes to solve the debt problem.
