Bloomberg: Taxing the Poor is Good

Now that former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced his candidacy for president, he is -- of course -- fair game. And yes, that's great for us with a working memory. After all, there have been many times when Bloomberg proved himself to be an extremely arrogant member of the Know-It-All elite. Case in point? Just watch this video in which Bloomberg basically explains that it's a great idea to tax the poor because higher taxes mean they have less money to hurt themselves. Or something. "[Some] say, well, 'taxes are regressive.' But in this case, yes they are, that's the good thing about them," Bloomberg said

FTA: ''...about taxes on sugary drinks and such. "Because the problem is in people that don't have a lot of money. And so higher taxes should have a bigger impact on their behavior and how they deal with themselves." Does this mean when a poor person goes into a store to buy a 'sugary drink and such' they must show an I.D. proving they're really poor? Or did he forget to mention the tax will be paid by EVERYONE for ''sugary drinks and such.?'' And what is ''as such''? I don't think this racism and arrogance is going to make the headlines in the so-called MSM. More proof the democrats don't have a single sane person running for president.

Reminds me of Bubba’s odious statement after Republicans (Thanks to Newt) eliminated the deficit during his reign of error that, “We could give you a tax refund but you wouldn’t spend it the right way.”

Yes, #5, it is. Everybody should be invested in the system. How much the poor pay in proportion to the middle-class, semi-wealthy, wealth, super-wealthy is up to discussion, but everybody ought to be pay something. If "No Taxation Without Representation" - that is, ability to vote (directly or for a representative) within the system that sets the taxes, then No Representation Without Taxation. You should feel some consequence for your vote, not just be a beneficiary of other people's taxes.

I don't think social scientists or economists would agree with such a radical statement. Homeless populations continue to grow around the nation, they really don't have money to hurt themselves. Bloomberg is ignorant of the plight of the poor in America.

If the leftist and liberal Democrats are stupid enough to nominate “Little Michael” as their Presidential candidate, the Trump Campaign should put “Little Michael’s” philosophy of essentially taxing the poor more so that they will have less money to hurt themselves right up front for everyone to know and see.

What an arrogant a**. I do think that ALL levels of income need to pay federal income taxes. Even the bottom rung needs to pay at least 5% in taxes, to be part of the country in the sense of "having some skin in the game". Lowering their taxes to zero was a serious mistake, and of course, the reality is that lower income folks actually not only don't PAY taxes, they get money from IRS as a welfare payment, calling it "earned income tax credit" which is ANYTHING but earned.

Ex-spy Christopher Steele accused Comey

Former British spy Christopher Steele described FBI Director James Comey’s October 2016 letter to Congress about Hillary Clinton's emails as "unconscionable. Treasonous, really,” according to a new book. At the time, Steele, 55, a former MI6 officer, was working for opposition research company Fusion GPS to investigate connections between Donald Trump, then the 2016 GOP presidential nominee. At the same time, he was a confidential informant for the FBI. His fury over Comey's intervention, which he believed damaged Clinton while concealing what the FBI knew about Trump, prompted him to push for what became known as the "Steele dossier" in the public domain.

Hunter Biden was suspected of smoking crack inside a strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits — at the same time he held a seat on the board of a controversial Ukrainian natural gas company, The Post has learned. The incident, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, DC, late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Biden, 49, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction that included a crack binge in 2016. Workers at Archibald’s, located about three blocks north of the White House, said Biden was a regular there, with two bartenders and a security worker

Calling his suspension from office “little more than a sham and mockery of fairness and due process,” Scott Israel, the former sheriff of Broward County, has sued Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Senate President Bill Galvano in federal court. The lawsuit, filed at about 11 p.m. Friday in the Northern District of Florida, asks U.S. District Court Judge William Stafford to reinstate Israel to his post, or — barring that — to set up an adjudication process that does not violate Israel’s due process rights. Israel was suspended by DeSantis three days after the governor took office. The pretext for the dismissal was Israel’s handling of the January 6, 2017

One of the most useful defenses against surveillance is countersurveillance, "the process of detecting surveillance devices, including covert listening devices, visual surveillance devices as well as countersurveillance software to thwart unwanted" monitoring by someone else. The best way to prevent spying on people is to spy on the spies and spot them first. Ever since Microsoft won the national defense cloud computing contract they've had an implicit brief to watch all the major hacking threats to that system. The "Big Four" are apparently China, Russia, Iran and North Korea. Though most of the media attention has been focused on Russia even the smaller players pose a threat.

Life was hard in the American West of old. Water could be scarce, infrastructure was non-existant, the natives were sometimes deadly, and the law could be hours or even days away. But hard times breed hard people, and the people who settled the West tamed the West. What was once a wild frontier soon grew into America's economic engine of resource production and technological innovation. Life can be hard in modern Florida, too. Think of the sweltering heat, streets built on top of sinkhole sands, Yankee immigrants who think they can wrestle alligators, and foreign tourists determined to cut in front of you in line at Hollywood Studios.

Disgraced former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was resentenced Friday to 30 to 60 years in prison -- the same penalty as before -- for sexually abusing children. Sandusky was wearing a yellow prison jumpsuit with his hands cuffed as he made his way inside the Centre County court in Bellefonte, Pa. He again asserted his innocence, choked up twice in brief remarks to the judge and told his supporters he loves them. The 75-year-old was convicted in June 2012 of 45 counts of child sex abuse over several years. Eight young men testified that Sandusky, who founded a charity for at-risk youth, subjected

On Friday morning, President Donald Trump told Fox & Friends that spygate — the Obama administration's surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election based on the false pretense of Trump being in league with Russia — will be "perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of our country." He said Attorney General Bill Barr's investigation of FISA abuses and U.S. Attorney John Durham's criminal investigation will prove "historic," and he predicted that the investigations will implicate former President Barack Obama himself. "Now, what you’re going to see, I predict, will be perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of our country, political scandal," Trump said.

Then he heard Jimi Hendrix. “Suddenly, there wasn’t a day when I didn’t listen to him," said Corley, 23. “It got to the point that listening wasn’t enough. I wanted to play his music, too.” For his 17th birthday, Corley’s parents gave him a Fender Stratocaster guitar, the same model Hendrix played. Musically, he never looked back. Corley later enrolled in the University of Tampa and founded the school’s Guitar Club, where he and others often jammed on Hendrix tunes. Earlier this year, Corley learned that Hendrix had played across the Hillsborough River from campus at the old Curtis Hixon Hall —

First and most obvious is the current field of contenders for the Democrat nomination.

Bad weather on Thanksgiving week can be stressful in the best of circumstances. But this week’s outbreak of TV weather hysteria was a sight to behold. For days on end, even Trump news was booted from the top of the network evening newscasts by dire warnings of the “triple storm danger” heading across the country and the “holiday travel nightmare” likely to result. The reports hit all the usual TV-weather bases: shots of skidding cars and chugging snowplows; airport scenes of passengers stranded by flight delays; Al Roker bounding among the weather maps as though he were plotting a military operation.

Two of the nation’s last three presidents won the presidency in the Electoral College, even though they lost the popular vote nationwide. In 2000, Al Gore outpolled George W. Bush by more than 540,000 votes but lost in the Electoral College, 271–266. Sixteen years later, Hillary Clinton tallied almost 3 million more votes than Donald Trump but lost decisively in the Electoral College, 306–232. And, as a recent New York Times poll suggested, the 2020 election could very well again deliver the presidency to the loser of the popular vote.

As one can readily see, Hillary Clinton has been unable to recover from having lost the 2016 presidential election -- a self-inflicted wound that she will never cop to. Or, possibly, an act of divine intervention. She has come up with well over a dozen reasons for her defeat -- every one but the real one, i.e. she is a loser -- not just a sore loser, but a total loser. She is incredibly incompetent, fundamentally dishonest, and criminally corrupt, and these are her good qualities. In addition, she is bereft of a trace of integrity or character, has absolutely no judgment, and is devoid of people skills
