AGAIN, THE LEFT PROVES HOW CLUELESS IT IS


Here we go again. This time it's Seattle . Seattle has a huge homeless problem, much of it government imposed.
It's illegal to build a high rise, or a boarding house, or an apartment complex. All that is allowed is single family dwellings. The building code is 745 pages long, and it takes an army of lawyers to decipher it.
So you end up with people who cannot afford to live there, but can't move anywhere else.

So how to they want to solve the problem ? By loosening regulations like " "Welded splices shall be of ASTM A706 steel" and "foam plastic signs shall not be greater than 1/2 inch" thick. "
Nah- can't let the free market take care of the problem.
Their answer is to tax the mega businesses that are located there , like Starbucks, Amazon, Boeing, Costco Wholesalers and Microsoft'
At first it was $500 per employee, then they " compromised " with $ 275 per employee. OOOOO some compromise. Go from a bad deal, to a half bad deal.

" Seattle's big-government restrictions created a housing problem. So now they propose to solve it with more heavy-handed government.
Seattle promises its new per-employee tax will only hit "big" companies, those grossing more than $20 million per year (about 3 percent of Seattle's businesses).
Don't the politicians realize that many growing companies will simply stop expanding when they get close to $20 million in income, just as companies, looking to escape ObamaCare, avoid employing more than 49 workers? " says John Stossel.

What person in their right mind would double down on a bad situation? Government, that's who , and the " right mind " caveat is obvious.

“The city does not have a revenue problem – it has a spending efficiency problem,” Drew Herdener, Amazon vice president, said in a statement. “We are highly uncertain whether the city council’s anti-business positions or its spending inefficiency will change for the better.”
I am sure the city will find some way to spend the extra tax revenue without doing a thing about the homeless problem. It would be far too sensible to let the free market take care of the housing problem, by building lower priced dwellings.

Not only that, they have some avowed socialists on the city council - members like Kshama Sawant. She and members of her political party, Socialist Alternative, demonstrated in support of the tax. They chanted, "Housing is a human right!"
Uh- no it's not. You have to define a right. Exactly what kind of house is it your " right " to have, Kshama? You can't have any of the ones the city has decided to make illegal, so I guess you are going to build all those thousands of homeless a nice 2 bedroom bungalow. Nothing but the best for the poor and downtrodden. Let the hard working middle class foot the bill.

So how did Amazon respond ? They announced they may put a hold on expansion, or leave the city. That's a big DUH , isn't it campers?
And for that they were called names. Sawant called Amazon's threat to leave "extortion." The activist group Working Washington asked Seattle's attorney general to charge Amazon with the crime of "issuing mob-like threats."

You just want to be left alone to sell stuff, expand and that creates jobs. The city tells you to pay up or else. And who is the mobster here?

And , of course, people like Kshama and company, however short they are in the reality department , are well- intentioned. They just don't seem to learn from other's mistakes.
Head taxes are extremely rare in the U.S. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel scrapped the Windy City’s tax after calling it a job killer.
Seattle once had a $25-a-year per head tax, but killed it in 2009.
And you can't point to one place on the planet where socialism has worked. But am sure, like all good believers in " to each according to his need " they think this time will be different.

Instead of raising tax revenues to pay for everything, here in Ontario the government is going to be getting additional revenue from government run online gambling and by selling government run legalized marijuana. The government is not even planning to keep the extra revenue, they are planning to give it away to the people by paying every single person a guaranteed income. They plan to get rid of old age pension and welfare and people still get the exact same income from the government regardless of whether they're employed, unemployed, retired, on welfare, etc. They've already tried this guaranteed income in several cities here and apparently it has been very successful.

You have been doing that for seniors, which is not unlike Social Security, and when you read the details, from when it was proposed in 2016, looks like it is not much different that throwing everyone on some sort of welfare.
Instead of giving everyone incentive NOT to work, how about incentive to create and expand business so everyone is not dependent on Government? But then, you just might create incentive for the Government to not secure their own power over you for eternity.
Social welfare programs here, except for social security were supposed to be a temporary prop up , while you were helping yourself do better. Instead, it has turned into a life style and is breaking the bank here. But then, you have a lot less people, so maybe it will work.
My question is, who is paying into the tax coffers, when most are just taking out?

As Margaret Thatcher said- Sooner or later, you run out of other people's money.
I don't know why the Left thinks businesses are some bottomless pit of money they can tax to death and not have the business just leave, or stop expanding. When profits go down, they stop hiring, and Seattle is out their damn " head tax " Idiots.

IF I owned a large business with several employees, and taxes and regulations became too cumbersome, I would definitely either sell it out or move it to another area of the country where it could be more profitable.
We have seen big factories whose workers were overpriced by the unions in our area do just that. It would be no different if the added costs were brought on by the government.
A business is in business to make money, and will go do it where ever it is most profitable.

Splitting can interfere with relationships and lead to intense and self-destructive behaviors. A person who splits will typically frame people or events in terms that are absolute with no middle ground for discussion.

Kind of like all the Government must decide what is right and wrong, and must be on the " progressive " agenda. No middle ground for gay marriage, abortion on demand , Israel is always the aggressor, all guns are bad, GMO always will kill you, Trump is evil, Republicans want dirty air and water, housing is an unequivocal right, what we decide is hate speech must be prosecuted, and on and on and on.

Meanwhile, we Constitutional libertarians just want to be left alone by the Government, except what they are allowed to do by the Constitution. The rest is left to the states and the people.
Every argument I have made is that Government is stepping on the toes of its citizens, overstepping its bounds, or has its neck on the free market.

And the Left wants to economically cripple the people it wants money from. Nobody likes taxes on themselves- they always want the other guy to pay. And that is both sides.
Encourage business to grow, expand and sell stuff, not eliminate the incentive to do those things. In the long run , more tax is collected, both from new workers and profits. Tax profits at a reasonable rate, just like they tax any income.
Providing health insurance should be a business decision a company offers to attract workers, not a mandate forced to discourage hiring.
Government always fails to understand how business works.
Let me offer an example:
You have more work coming in. You can do a couple of things- 1. hire or 2. put more work on the current employees. Business will most of the time try number 2, if number 1, costs too much.
Many times offering overtime for a couple of weeks is less than hiring, and hiring temp or part time is less than hiring full time, if the Government mandates full time benefits.
Payroll is finite and is based on sales, income, billable hours, or however you make money. Unlike the Government, business cannot operate on deficit spending.

You have used this psychobabble before, and it's clear you don't understand -- or willfully misunderstand -- the condition. It has nothing to do with political speech. If you advocate a position or a legislation, you will in some sense be "splitting" others into broad groups of agreement and disagreement.

"Splitting" is the psychological sense describes personal relationships. It can be aligned with borderline personality disorder or narcissism. The person who is doing the splitting is basically trying to preserve his/her own shaky self-esteem by exaggerating her worth. This can be disastrous to a relationship.

According to your understanding, you yourself constantly involve in splitting behavior. What else could you call your mockery of believing Christians, conservatives, and on down your long, long list of bogeymen.

BTW, I do hope you recognize your constant inability to discuss an issue. You dismiss a viewpoint, not because you hold a superior one, and then proceed to tell us why, but instead try to dismiss the viewpoint by claiming it is held by a person or people who are personally too flawed to hold a valid view.

Wrong yet again, flitty. My first wife was a psychological counselor and taught me about splitting behavior in the 80's. She applied it astutely to mutual acquaintances.

Medicare and Social Security have their roots in the New Deal, a Government centric program pushed by a President whose economic advisors were fans of Stalin and Communism.
Having said that, I do not think either program is all that bad, but people still need a choice- to let the Government help them or not. The Government automatically deducts $122 a month from my Social Security. I rarely see a doctor, have no major issues , and take two minor meds for my back pain, as needed.
If competition for health insurance was the same as other insurance, we could buy across state lines, and bundle, getting multi-policy discounts.
The Government should be the place of last resort

Here just for your information Big Mouth.

Here are some examples of why I believe Washington is totally out of touch with the American people.
The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775—you have had 234 years to get it right—and it is broke.
Social Security was established in 1935—you have had 74 years to get it right—and it is broke.
Fannie Mae was established in 1938—you have had 71 years to get it right—and it is broke.
War on Poverty started in 1964—you have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor"—and they only want more.
Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965—you have had 44 years to get it right—and they are broke.
Freddie Mac was established in 1970—you have had 39 years to get it right—and it is broke.

Then you got the Amigos, James Clapper the former Director of National Intelligence, James Comey, the fired director of the FBI and John Brennan, the CIA head. The three of them look like they were, you know, a dog-and-pony show organized to go on the road and say whatever the hell they wanted. All three are so crooked they will have to screw them into the ground when they die.

You say we should trust the government, surely you jest.

The issue here is your innocent and undying faith in Government. They do a few things well- the military for one. Armies are supposed to kill people and break things in war. We got that one down .
What government does not do well is anything the private sector can do better- like health care ( look at the VA scandals )
The private sector is accountable to its customers, and hence has a profit motive to provide good service and decent goods and still make money. The Government , as much as the politicians like to posture about " the voters ", is not accountable.
When your doctor is a Government employee , do you think the medical profession would still attract the same quality of personnel? When your doctor would be , as a Government employee, hamstrung by rules, regulations and bureaucracy , do you think you would have timely care, without a huge wait time ? And when Bureaucrats are using charts and table to decide if your life or your child's is worth saving, ( see Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans ) how much will you love Government then?

In other words, if you love the DMV and the IRS, you will love Government health care.

And one more thought TX- " deserving of health care " is a nice emotional fallacy, but it does not determine that the Government is the one best to provide it. Emotion does not make the Government efficient or trustworthy, or a good steward of the money it takes from taxpayers.

And one more thought Maisie......American healthcare outcomes are generally lower,very complicated and cost much more than all those countries that have government-run single-payer systems. This contradicts your claim that emotion is the basis for why people want it.......

    And you had never heard of the expression " off their feed " , which you announced with great pomposity , was my ignorance.
    Have you ever said anything nice to anyone, ever ?
"Have you ever said anything nice to anyone, ever ?"

Said the person who has never said anything nice to anyone...ever.

Cue apron string chaser's name-calling rant in 3, 2, 1.

Although I appreciate the honorable mention, I'll have to respectfully decline your award on the basis of it being a flaming crock of shit. Maybe you're the one who should read the comments on your own blogs to see who really is deserving of that much power, and give credit where credit is due.

Thanks for the honorable mention though chick.

It looks like you've got a nice, new haircut. It's very flattering! It frames your face nicely, and allows your turkey neck to take center stage.

Cue the gum that's stuck to the bottom of your shoe's, name-calling rant in
3, 2, 1.

Oh my! Was that nasty?

I won't refer you to BigMouth's blog then, you'd stroke out!

Yeah, turkey neck- the bane of old ladies everywhere. Hands show age also, for most people. But glad you liked the haircut.
