Mid-West Pragmatism?

leave a comment »

 I was listening to a local radio host, Brian Gongol on WHO Radio 1040, who was on the fence whether or not it was a good idea to get rid of income tax and SS tax and replace it with a carbon tax. That’s like a pedophile wondering what type of sodomy is best. Both are bad things…But then again may be he likes grabbing his ankles. Leave it to mid-west pragmatism to be on the fence about such things. I bet he approves of GPS’s in people’s cars to track mileage for the purpose of taxes. As Bugs Bunny would say, “What a maroon”.

The People’s Republic of New York

with 2 comments

The Dear Leader of the People’s Republic of New York has just unveiled a new budget with 88 new taxes, including an 18% obesity tax on sugared soda. In addition, he proposes lay offs and cuts in services. This is one instance where I am glad I do not live there anymore. When politicians propose new spending increases for pet projects and social programs, they never take into consideration of a what if a bad economy comes along. Patterson, the new governor sfacime of New York, the new El Supremo has a responsibility to keep state finances in line, but obviously, he does not have the acumen or the balls to cut taxes and services. As usual, New Yorkers lose. I wonder if the blind man can see the effects of his folly. Then again, he did inherit a lot this mess, but he’s taking the wrong tack.
