Pro golfer Phil Mickelson
may leave US in response to
state, federal income tax hikes

Daily Caller, by Jessica Stanton

Professional golfer Phil Mickelson told reporters Sunday that he is considering “drastic changes” in response to state and federal income tax hikes — including possibly leaving the United States. “It’s been an interesting off-season. And I’m going to have to make some drastic changes. I’m not going to jump the gun and do it right away, but I will be making some drastic changes,” Mickelson said during a press conference following the Humana Challenge golf tournament in La Quinta, Calif.

We will be seeing more of these kinds of stories as long as demagogue Obama and his ´´Fairness´´ ilk promote higher tax rates over growth and actual revenue. In his economic ignorance and ideology, hellbent Obama would have us explore ever more punishing sections of the Laffer Curve.

I suspect there´s a lot of rich people who already think they´re paying their fair share and are tired of being targeted for all the problems in this country.

One effective argument I´ve used with Obamanomics fans is the fact that if Obama´s big government, big benefits plan worked, then Greece should be a booming economic paradise today, or at minimum a pleasant viable place to live. I´ve yet to get get a reasonable response when I´ve made that point.

#6 should recall that taxes are the reason many, many athletes live in Florida. Mickelson is probably considering a move to that state or maybe Texas.

I have many liberal friends who will scream bloody murder about this; Phil is just saying out loud what many are thinking. Thoughts and words are still legal in this country...unless saying you are leaving a state because of oppressive taxes is now akin to shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

Good for you, Phil. Do what is best for you and your family...don´t worry about California because they certainly are not worrying about you.

Good for Mickelson. I would not blame any rich person for taking his money and moving out of the country entirely. Why should they submit to being shorn like a bunch of sheep? Take your money away, don´t let Obama get it. Come back after the inevitable collapse and help us pick up the pieces.

Greedy Capitalist Pig! He should pay his fair share. IThe purist form of patriotism is for those with the money to give to those without the money. Our collectivism wellbeing is centered on the few supporting the many. How dare he consider his own greed above the needs of the middle class. Where is he going?

Yeah, isn´t it true and obvious that Mickelson stole all his money from the little guys? I mean, none of his wealth has anything to do with him or his talent, right? His wealth started with government who built the roads.

And if anything #6, "his country" has turned its back on him. Remember it was Obama who said he has made to much money anyway. Do you really think he should work hard to earn that money just to have Obama take it for a vacation to Hawaii?

#6 Are you one of those people that think that people with a lot of money just have that money piled up in one big room? No, that money is actually out working, invested in companies that create jobs. Yes, in the process they make a profit (pardon me for using that nasty word). The article mentions that he pays Workmans Comp so he employs people as well. Jobs created by this filty rich man, golly gee.

The phrase Taxation Without Representation keeps running though my head and I’ll bet Phil feels the same way. How many of us voted to have our tax money bail out solar panel companies that went bankrupt but still managed to contribute to BO’s reelection campaign? Or wanted relief money legislation for Sandy victims to be laden with pork for Alaska and other non-storm related states? I’ll be interested in Phil’s decision and the discussions it spurs.

Golly, we should just pass a law that slams that door on his nose as he tries to keep the money he´s been stealing from the little people. Then we should fine him for not fighting for his country or sticking his neck out far enough for conservative causes. I mean, some of us can´t even afford those country club dues.

A read of the article tells us he is unhappy with Jerry Brown´s new tax on those earning millions. That he is could leave the state. The part about leavint the country is dropped in after his saying "or even".

The headline writer picked up the most sensational thing he could out of an otherwise blah article about an athlete´s contemplating moving from the place where he was born and raised to another place where taxes are not so high.

All proceeding according to the leftists plans. They drive away the productive (their only real competition), leaving themselves in control by default. Wherever Democrats/Leftists/Statists seize control the place turns into Cuba, North Korea, Detroit, Venezuela, etc. Some go quicker, some slower but they all go to the same place. That´s why the low info voter is key (gotta love that education establishment). Leftists are the political vultures, the bottom feeders, everything seems alright while there´s still a lot of meat left on the body politic carcass for them to feed on. The true enormity of the mistaken actions of giving them control only becomes more apparent when there are no more crown jewels left to sell. Take Venezuela for example, Chavez and his group have been stripping that country since 1999 and there´s still much more deprivation to be meted out to those poor people. Phil Mickelson is just another signpost. One other thing, it appears from the article that not only will his additional tax revenue be leaving, his much larger and longer term investment capital will be leaving as well. That´s a signpost of note too...

Tiger Wooods did this YEARS ago. He grew up in southern Californin and played briefly at Stanford but moved to a lower tax jurisdiction (Florida) when he turned pro. I expect Phil will do the same thing although a few star athletes do establish residency offshore as well.

It is not Phil Mickelson´s job to be political. His sponsors may even forbid it. The fact is that Mr. Mickelson is generous. He and his wife fund an educational foundation. With no fanfare he underwrote former NFL player Conrad Dobler´s daughter´s college education at an expensive school. No matter though, as there will always be resentful, naive individuals who demand that people like Phil Mickelson "pay their fair share."

If Mickelson wants to move to another state or out of the country, I say fine - going Galt is the only thing that will have any impact. Why should his money go to fund corrupt politicians and their pork boondoggles? There is plenty of money in the country to fund the necessary, yet our politicians have figured out a way to buy votes with the treasury.

I watched the History Channel´s shows yesterday about the history of the presidency. George Washington had an $2 million budget. That won´t even cover one of the Poseur´s vacations. (I know you have to adjust for inflation, but the point is still valid.)

Maybe it’s not just the money the Phil is upset about. Maybe being sneered at by his president as a greedy one percenter who doesn’t so his fair share has something to do with it. Perhaps while we’re on the subject of money and fair share, we could compare Phil’s and Obama’s charitable contributions. Maybe the it is the whole direction and tone of this national conversation that Phil doesn’t appreciate. I’m with Phil.

Mickelson: "But if you add up ... all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and the state, my tax rate´s 62, 63 per cent," he said. "So I´ve got to make some decisions on what I´m going to do."

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell.

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

Ever since ObamaCare supposedly hit the arbitrary target of 7 million sign-ups by March 31, its supporters have been taking the most premature victory lap since conservative proponents of the Iraq War (like me) crowed about the results of the three elections inside Iraq in 2005 and how they demonstrated the country was on the verge of a historic peace. “It’s all over but the shouting: ObamaCare is working,” said Eugene Robinson in Tuesday’s Washington Post. “All the naysaying in the world can’t drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, is a real success.” Those

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error. The ferry was carrying 477 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
