Once again we see a liberal saying something stupid and provocative that a conservative could never say and get away with. Here’s what she said in an interview with the liberal group Mediaite: I mean, I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down.

Horror, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy fiction author Stephen King wants to be taxed more. He even wrote an article with the title “Tax Me, for [email protected]%&’s Sake!” He’s not satisfied being taxed at 28 percent. He believes a 50 percent rate is about right. No one’s stopping him from
George Washington said, “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” People who vote for a more powerful government are more dangerous than government itself. One way to keep these types of people from voting would

“Blameshift: a process in business and government wherein the blame for something bad is shifted from person to person.” Blameshifting has a long and inglorious history. When Adam fell into sin, he blamed his wife and eventually blamed God: “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave
When taxes are high in one state, businesses and individual tax payers have the freedom to move to another state. The number of millionaires who have left New York is getting to Red Sea proportions. Rush Limbaugh moved his operation to Florida, a state that doesn’t have a state income
I’ve never paid a bank fee. I don’t own a debit card. I’ve never withdrawn cash from a teller machine. I pay off my credit cards each month. My businesses get to use the bank’s money interest-free for about 24 days each month. The sky miles I rack up pay
“I’ve been hearing a lot of these Republicans talking about, oh, that’s class warfare, and he just wants to redistribute, and doesn’t believe in work, and he’s trying to create an entitlement society, and this and that and the other. Let me be absolutely clear: I should pay more taxes,
The media and, unfortunately, some Republicans are making an issue out of the tax rate that Mitt Romney pays. First, we should be thankful that many people get to pay just 15 percent on their income. This means that the money is not going to the government to be wasted
A story in USA Today reports that inmates, some of them serving life sentences, have applied to the IRS to be tax preparers. Most of them did not reveal that they were incarcerated. It’s good to know that prisoners are trying to be productive members of society. It’s kind of
It’s the end of the year, and my business partner and I have to figure out how to reduce our taxes. If we didn’t have to pay so much in taxes, we could hire the four people we need to hire. The government takes so much in taxes from us
A CNN article reports that many corporations don’t pay income taxes, and many more don’t pay the 35 percent corporate tax rate. The average tax is around 18 percent. You and I should be thankful that some corporations don’t pay any taxes and be upset that the average tax rate
Finally, I found something on which I can agree with the President. The following comments were in front of the Key Bridge, which spans Arlington, Va. and Washington. The President urged Congress to pass the infrastructure piece of his jobs plan: “If Congress tells you they don’t have time, they
The rich often get a bum rap. Liberals are incensed when it is suggested that “the rich” get any type of tax reduction even though the top 50% of wage earners pay 96% of all income taxes. Since they spend more money, the rich also pay a disproportionate amount in
When we think of taxes, we most likely look at what we pay to the Federal government and the states where we live, but there are dozens more, incorporated into everything we purchase. Every time we might the government to tax the corporations, we are asking them to tax us.
George Stephanopoulos (Γεώργιος Στεφανόπουλος), the descendant of Greek immigrants, stated companies that go overseas as a result of high taxes in America are “unpatriotic.” Was it unpatriotic for his Greek relatives to leave their home country to find a better life in the United States? When they left Greece, they
