Current Events

Donna Brazile

(Fox News) Donna Brazile's newly released 2016 campaign tell-all accuses the FBI and the Democratic National Committee she used to lead of a bungled response to the email hacks that threw the party into turmoil last summer.

Will Donna Brasile be invited to the Clinton's for Thanksgiving? Maybe not. And I don't think that Debbie Wasserman (the shamed and expunged leader of the DNC) will invite Brazile to join with her on the 8 crazy nights of Chanukah. BUT I'm sure that Brazile will strike both of them from the list of people she invites over for chicken and watermelon on Kwanzaa.

The Democrat talking points are now: Forget the past, let's move on...bright future ahead...a thousand points of light...let's put the Social Security fund in a lock box...the party of freaks and misfits.

And in California

This, just in: California Governor Jerry Brown has denounced President Trump's tax plan. He plans to lead a taxpayer's revolt, which he will call the Tea Party.

Brown has been floating the notion of raising the lid on California income tax from 11% to 15%. The Trump program would put a spike in his vision of yet higher taxes.

Californians started paying 12 cents a gallon more than they used to in order to speed income redistribution on November 1. They all want to do their part to help illegal aliens (democrat party voters even though they're illegal) settle in, and the $52 million per year that the tax increase will gather is only a small step in a much larger plan. 

That plan may be placed in jeopardy by President Trump. Will Brown's new tea party succeed? They're budgeting now to hire protestor/participants and to pay to have them bussed to locations and to have signs made for them - which is not a new strategy for the Democrats. Will Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA/San Francisco) be the first member of the New Tea Party?
As an aside, I signed up for the Joe Biden for President Exploratory Committee and promised to pay them (fingers crossed). The initial newsletters have been too dumb to share with you. Biden can only talk about the glorious Obama Years and the wonders of Obamacare. Apparently Rep. Pelosi is forming something too because she'd like to emerge like a phoenix from the shambles that is the Democrat Party. I expressed interest: "run, Nancy, run!" and will let you know what happens.

  2. LL,

    Coming from a NO STATE INCOME TAX state, I don't know how the state income tax in California offsets the federal income tax, however, I don't want to pay for your wetbacks and I don't want you to pay for mine. (And Cesar Chavez didn't want your wetbacks there either.) So, despite being anti tax, this tax increase seems like a reasonable idea, even though I would lose my deduction for state sales tax deduction.

    I wonder why the Democrats Progressive Republik of Kalifornia, the DPRK, want a regressive tax like the gas tax? Unless they have a convoluted provision that taxes by car type and cost. Of course this means that they are getting so convoluted that they are closer to original intent constitutionally, hence, my tax plan : everybody pays the same (not percentage, amount) Like a membership fee. The lower income levels thereby have a greater interest in low taxes and there are more of them to get out the vote. Also, there is a greater incentive to make more money. The predictable way, of course, is education in a field that pays.

    1. California already has something like $.60 per gallon gas tax. The additional $.12 just jacks it up more. Excise taxes in California are legendary. Auto registration fees/taxes are also very high. My Toyota FJ just came up for renewal in CA, so I re-titled/registered it in Arizona.

      Arizona allows you to register your car for 1, 2 or 5 years at a time. I registered my Toyota for 2 years and it was about $50 less than what California wanted for one year.

      Gasoline in Arizona, grade for grade, brand for brand, is about $1.00 per gallon less expensive than it is in California.

  3. Not so naïve to think that the statists will ever pass it, but I can dream can't I?
    A side note, some people think that it has never been done, however, for the majority of our nation's history, that was the law. Until the worst President of all time, Wilson.

    1. You're right. The graduated income tax was one of America's first major efforts at income re-distribution. And don't hold your breath to see THAT repealed.

  4. What's the future for California, a vast sea of millions of low/no skill immigrants ruled over by MillSoc tech oligarchs and Celebrities? Curious.

    1. It will be a progressive paradise, filled with unicorns and rainbows. The Crips and Bloods will surrender their firearms, and all will be right with the world.

  5. Last I heard Nancy Pelosi talk, all I could think was she should call John McCain and ask for his neurology doc's name and number. She sounds like she has either had a stroke or has a brain tumor herself!

  6. Overall, states with the highest taxes are blue states and they call President Trump dumb?
