While many of us just finished a Thanksgiving weekend filled with family, friends and feasting, Bill O'Reilly seems to have spent it sucking his sour grapes of racial resentment at the loss of “traditional America.” You may recall that O'Reilly has been whining about this subject for weeks now. Tonight, he announced during his Talking Points segment, “Many Americans are depressed because traditional America seems to be disappearing.” Many Americans? Or just those who can't stand the thought of their taxes going up to pay for welfare queens?
In case you didn't get what kind of (white) traditional America O'Reilly was referring to, he soon brought up President Obama and his “social justice” philosophy. Obama “will take money away from successful Americans in order to finance his vision,” O'Reilly said.
Poor Bill. So many welfare queens, so little likelihood that his taxes will not go up and get “redistributed” (in his mind) to all those non-traditional, people-of-color Americans. And just in time for the war on Christmas!
courthouse, a Dairy Queen, and 1 hotel. I have NEVER seen that many plywood windows in my life, and I have been thru hurricanes.
So to the point. It wouldn’t matter if Texas had income taxes as NOBODY has an income.
Bill. If you want to see ‘Traditional America’ watch the movie “Gangs of New York”. See how the welcome mat was laid out for the Irishman.
“Many Americans” = white, Christian, upper 1% males
Let’s make it easy. There is this guy I know paying, rounding up figures for the sake of simplicity, 1.5% living in Los Angeles.
According to the Franchise Tax Board (California’s tax collector) the sales tax is “as low as” 7.25%. Again, depending on the locale, it may be as high as 8.75%.
So, let’s make it an even 10%.
I don’t think anyone wants to go through a 1040 and California’s CA540, but let me say this. My friend pays enough in property taxes ALONE to just square off his yearly state tax obligation, maybe paying a couple hundred bucks with the final return.
Having said that, Billdo’s argument is a complete fallacy.
BECAUSE my friend makes his money WHERE he can make money.
Let me put it another way.
There are places, even within California, where I, er, my friend wouldn’t live.
And I, er, my friend don’t go around bitchin’ about my taxes are soooo high I rather quit making money, BECAUSE NOT MAKING MONEY makes SOOOO MUCH SENSE.
How much traditional ’murka has changed!
For my previous post, I had written a comparison between California and Texas without knowing Billdo had made the same and it was the basis for his “let’s bash the progressive secularist President.”
I scraped it after thinking maybe it was too long.
Now I found Billdo’s rant against California at another site.
I’ll start by saying Billdo doesn’t know WTF he is talking about with his idiotic non sequitur.
I’ll will skip the long rant debunking Billdo but the conclusion will be the same.
Billdo, if you don’t like the LBRUL states MOVE THE PHUCK OUT TO TEXAS and SECEDE.
“In Texas there is no income tax and that’s why so many workers are moving there.”
Billdo, you ignorant whiner, you think people finding a job and getting paid worry about their state income taxes?
Do us all a favor Billdo. Pull a sht flinging baboon Glenn Beck and MOVE TO TEXAS so you don’t have to pay those horrible TAXES.
No, wait, Billdo. Move to the Cayman Islands.
Then whine some more about the demise of “traditional murka” because morons in Texas want to secede and be free of President Obama’s big bad gubbimint Marxist vision.
Don’t forget to sell all your assets before capital gains taxes go up, Billdo.
President XXX âwill take money away from successful Americans in order to finance his vision,â
That’s how it’s been since Dec. 7 1941 Killer. “Empire” costs everyone. If it makes you feel better you can claim your taxes for the past 16 years paid for the op. to kill OBL. Got that? … now STFU!
NOTE TO BILLY
The only reason Ailes keeps you because your show is #1. But that won’t last long because Hannity has plans to be the new #1 Fox “News” show, but you knew this already, old guy.
Now the tax breaks might go to folks who will actually spend that money on goods and services, thereby creating demand, thereby creating the need for business to hire more folks. That creates a self-sustaining economic cycle of prosperity for both individuals and business.
Why are Republicans so bad at simple economics?
If he’s not careful, his goobers might just turn on him!
