How dare some people are successful!  

 

The left is way too interested in taking what they want from anyone that earns $10 dollars more than they do!  You guys are so predictable.

(2018)     Insert a picture of a dumb and dumber RW here:  


Obama inherited the debt of $10 trillion dollars and when he left office, he brought the debt to $20 trillion dollars (100% increase in only 8 years). Trump has increased the debt another $2 trillion dollars (just shy of $22 trillion dollars) causing an increase in debt of 10% in two years. Those are the facts.

 

Google it to prove it to yourself.

Most of those snowflakes that earn $1 million/year are liberals in Hollywood.  They won't look favorably at your suggestion if you try to take THEIR money away to give to others. 

From 1936 until 1965, we got along GREAT with a TMR of 91%, which meant those at the very top contributed an average of 68% of their income and were forced to squeek by on a mere 20 times what the middle 60% netted after taxes. Even with that high income tax rate, the rich got richer every year, BUT the middle got richer faster, and the gap between rich and poor SHRANK.

 Everyone knows that a graduated income tax that goes to 91% is insane and that's why it doesn't exist anymore.

We are facing two monumental issues - Climate Change and the increasing obsolence of human labor.

 According to the left, these are the most pressing things.  Liberals won't face the facts that taxes won't change the climate but the real goal is getting more taxes. If you were really worried about the obsolescence of human labor, you wouldn't encourage illegal entry to our country.

Within our children's lifetime, we as a Nation will have to deal with the greatest human migration in history as sea levels displace over 1/3d of all the people on Earth and increased temperatures alter the growing season of our most productive cropland. Where will we live and what will we eat?

More CO2 means that the climate will warm somewhat encouraging more plants to grow (warmer temps and more CO2 is what plants crave). As a byproduct of this new plant growth, we will see an increase of oxygen (the element that plants exhale).

 

While this is happening, automation will make it possible to satisfy all our material needs with input from less than half the adult population. What will we do with all that "surplus" labor?

 What will we do with the illegal aliens that the left is allowing to come to our country? That is "surplus labor".

The answer to those INEVITABLE problems is NOT more billionaires.


Your hatred for success is admirable but not helpful.

The left is always looking out for new and innovative ways to increase taxes with the goal of redistribution of the wealth.  This is another warmed over Climate Change initiative that would create problems where they don't exist and raise the overall income taxes on the people hardest hit by the income tax already. Good luck on finding enough fools to fall for this scam.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sat with Anderson Cooper for an upcoming 60 Minutes interview set to air this Sunday, a portion of which has been released as a promotion. In the released segment, Ocasio-Cortez reveals how exactly she suggests paying for the environmental agenda known as the “Green New Deal” — with remarkably higher tax rates for the super wealthy.

 

Ocasio-Cortez suggests in the clip that in her esteem, people should be doing more to pay their “fair share.” When Cooper pressed on how she could possibly pay for the deal, she pointed to the progressive tax rate system in the 1960s, explaining that if you earn 0 to $75,000 a year, you would only pay 10% or 15% in income tax.

She continued:

 

“But once you get to the tippie tops, on your $10 millionth, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60% or 70%. That doesn’t mean all $10 million are taxed at an extremely high rate. But it means that as you climb up this ladder, you should be contributing more.”

Cooper replied that she was proposing a “radical agenda.”

 

“If that’s what radical means, call me a radical,” she said.

 

The newly elected New York representative has quickly become something of a lightning rod of attention for people of all political stripes, so this suggestion is certain to get as much attention as the recently revealed and viral clip of a teen-aged AOC doing a Breakfast Club style dance on a rooftop.

....How dare someone who will be around when Global Warming kicks into high gear go looking for a solution.    She and 99 or 97% of all scientist that work in the field of Global Warming agree is real are working towards a solution.     

    The screaming by the author ( more on that later)  is that the FED should have nothing to do with planning for the nation.   Gee, isn't that called Infrastructure.    

 

    Apparently attempting to hide or obscure the information about the author, is what RW skeptics do, but this guy is such a dousy, I can't not hide is background:   Tom is the founder and editor of Grabien. He created and produced The Peter Schiff Show and was previously the long-time executive producer of The Laura Ingraham Show, the 5th most listened to radio show in America. Before that, he served on the editorial board of The New York Post and The New York Sun. He attended Bucknell University, where he founded the award-winning newspaper, The Counterweight. He's currently living with his wife and two sons in Madrid, Spain.

THE 'GREEN NEW DEAL': A RADICAL MANDATE FOR GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF AMERICAN SOCIETY

'Ocasio-Cortez sees this plan is being a vehicle through which social equality might finally realized, as it will use reparations to right historical injustices'

 

BY:  Tom Elliott

 

 

Incoming New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brings with her a massive online following, influence she says she’ll deploy only in support of candidates and politicians who support her plan for a “Green New Deal.”

 

“The Green New Deal” is something Ocasio-Cortez invokes frequently in media appearances and rallies.

 

So what’s actually in it?

 

Her office recently released the text of a proposed House rules change outlining the plan.

 

The proposed rule change for the upcoming 116th Congress would require the creation of a “Select Committee for a Green Deal” that would be responsible for creating the plan by January 1, 2020, with corresponding draft legislation soon after. The text of the rule change lays out the committee’s jurisdiction and required areas of action.

 

Its scope and mandate for legislative authority amounts to a radical grant of power to Washington over Americans’ lives, homes, businesses, travel, banking, and more.

 

Early on, under “Jurisdiction,” the document makes clear its grandiose philosophical vision: “The select committee shall have authority to develop a detailed national, industrial, economic mobilization plan for the transition of the United States economy to become greenhouse gas emissions neutral and to significantly draw down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and oceans and to promote economic and environmental justice and equality.”

 

In addition to achieving its goal of “meeting 100% of national power demand through renewable sources,” the document also repeatedly states the Green New Deal will advance non-environmental projects, such as, “social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice.” 

 

Ocasio-Cortez’s plan further claims it will (virtually) eliminate poverty: “The Plan for a Green New Deal (and the draft legislation) shall recognize that a national, industrial, economic mobilization of this scope and scale is a historic opportunity to virtually eliminate poverty in the United States and to make prosperity, wealth and economic security available to everyone participating in the transformation.”

 

More specifically, Ocasio-Cortez’s plan calls for, within 10 years, a series of lofty overhauls of American life [emphasis added]:  

 

  • The installation of a “national, energy-efficient, “smart grid.”
  • Upgrading every residential and industrial building for state-of-the-art energy efficiency, comfort and safety”
  • Eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from the manufacturing, agricultural and other industries” as well as from America’s transportation and infrastructure network
  • Funding “massive investment” in reducing existing greenhouse gasses

Between its calls for “upgrading” homes and overhauling travel, public infrastructure, and even the way Americans consume electricity, the plan leaves virtually no facet of everyday life untouched. Think of how often you don’t use electricity to imagine how much of your average day the plan wouldn’t impact.

 

The proposed committee would also have seemingly total oversight of American industry, with a mandate for pushing union membership. Under “Scope of the Plan,” a section on labor states the committee’s final plan shall: “Require strong enforcement of labor, workplace safety, and wage standards that recognize the rights of workers to organize and unionize free of coercion, intimidation, and harassment, and creation of meaningful, quality, career employment.”

 

Later in the document, Ocasio Cortez’s plan imagines creating a national jobs force to help people participate in this “transition.” The Green New Deal, it says, shall “provide all members of our society, across all regions and all communities, the opportunity, training and education to be a full and equal participant in the transition, including through a job guarantee program to assure a living wage job to every person who wants one.”

 

The plan also imagines creating governmental support for “transitioning” minority communities. The deal shall: “ensure a ‘just transition’ for all workers, low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous communities, rural and urban communities and the front-line communities most affected by climate change, pollution and other environmental harm including by ensuring that local implementation of the transition is led from the community level.”

 

More, Ocasio-Cortez sees this plan is being a vehicle through which social equality might finally realized through the use of reparations to right historical injustices. The final Green New Deal will “mitigate deeply entrenched racial, regional and gender-based inequalities in income and wealth (including, without limitation, ensuring that federal and other investment will be equitably distributed to historically impoverished, low income, deindustrialized or other marginalized communities in such a way that builds wealth and ownership at the community level).”

 

And if that weren’t enough to ensure that Democratic Socialism could be fully realized in America, the plan includes failsafe in the form of universal income and Medicare for All: The plan, it says, shall “include additional measures such as basic income programs, universal health care programs and any others as the select committee may deem appropriate to promote economic security, labor market flexibility and entrepreneurism.”

 

Ocasio-Cortez clarifies that this plan would not only need to be financed by taxpayers, but also the Federal Reserve and other institutions the government can create. The end of the document contains a Q&A, one of which deals with the plan’s funding: “The Federal Reserve can extend credit to power these projects and investments, new public banks can be created (as in WWII) to extend credit and a combination of various taxation tools (including taxes on carbon and other emissions and progressive wealth taxes) can be employed.”

 

Ocasio-Cortez may not be in Congress yet, but she already has a plan to remake the way Americans drive, commute, live, work, and even use the financial system. Let there be little doubt how she aspires to wield power in Washington.

 

Here is a copy of the document:
