Sinking States of the Union and Their Worried NeoFascists

Which ‘sinkhole states’ are most at risk from the GOP tax bill?

by Joseph Smith…….at Forbes:       (Article sent by Lisa Rich out in California.)
“Forbes financial writer William Baldwin asks which “sinkhole states” will have the biggest headaches from the GOP tax bill:
These are places where the population dependent on the state – for employment, welfare[,] or a pension – is larger than the population feeding it.  That excess of takers over makers is recipe enough for trouble when the next recession hits.  But now some of the sinkholes have a new worry.
The Trump tax law enacted in December just about killed the federal deduction that prosperous people take for state income taxes.  In states with stiff taxes, the cost of living has suddenly gone up.
Baldwin, a former editor of Forbes magazine, has compiled a list of “sinkhole states” having a “Feed Me Ratio” over 100 and a net out-migration of taxpayer income: “[s]inkholes also have a Feed Me Ratio worse than 100.  The ratio is the population of takers for every 100 makers.”
Baldwin next computes a “Soak ’em Score” to see which sinkhole states depend most heavily on high-income taxpayers to pay the bills.  The Soak ’em Score is the “percentage of state tax revenues coming from people with incomes over $500,000.”  Those tax revenues are “vulnerable” under the new federal tax law, says Baldwin: “[n]ot every high earner can relocate, but a lot can.”
Baldwin’s formula finds that four high-tax blue states – California, Connecticut, Illinois, and New York – are sinkhole states at the greatest financial risk under the new tax law:
California: Feed Me Ratio: 134, Soak ’em Score: 25.5
Connecticut: Feed Me Ratio: 103, Soak ’em Score: 26.3
Illinois: Feed Me Ratio: 116, Soak ’em Score: 10.4
New York: Feed Me Ratio: 118, Soak ’em Score: 30.1
The table included in Baldwin’s column, also posted at realclearmarkets.com, also shows New Jersey, with a 22.7 Soak ’em Score, just missing the Feed Me Ratio cutoff for sinkhole state status.  With a newly elected “proudly progressive” governor, look for New Jersey to make up for lost time on the sinkhole state list.
Four red states – Alaska, Louisiana, Mississippi, and West Virginia – qualify as sinkhole states under the Baldwin formula, but with relatively few wealthy taxpayers, those states have very low Soak ’em Scores.
Mr. Baldwin also highlights the staggering levels of unfunded pension liabilities in the sinkhole states.  Using more conservative interest rates than the “wishful rates used by state actuaries,” Baldwin says Illinois is “in the hole” for $361 billion on state pensions, and California is some $769 billion in the hole for pensions.  “If you live in a sinkhole state, be wary of the home-state municipal bonds[.]”
Mr. Baldwin’s Soak ’em Score analysis may not be too popular in certain state capitals, whose politicians may finally have to pay the piper.
Steve Moore, writing at washingtontimes.com, says, “Americans will go to great lengths to lower their taxes,” and, now that the federal deduction for state income taxes has been cut back, “[s]o will politicians”:
The blue[-]state governors have argued for many years that their high tax rates don’t cause people to move – even though the two highest income tax states, California and New York, have each lost about one million residents to other states over the past decade.
But now that their high tax rates are no longer tax[-]deductible the incentive to leave is magnified and these governors like Andrew Cuomo of New York are leaping into action.
Cuomo and other blue-state governors, says Moore, are “examining whether they can convert their income taxes into payroll taxes,” “threatening to sue the federal government,” and “investigating whether their states can convert income tax payments into tax[-]deductible charitable contributions to the state government.”
“Good luck with that,” Moore adds.
Moore concludes that “politicians like Mr. Cuomo and California’s [Governor] Jerry Brown” can either “try to conjure up more short-term gimmicks to ease the coming tax hit” or “stop complaining and start taking competitiveness seriously by cutting their excessive taxes and spending.”
Baldwin at forbes.com says the “harsh reality of the new tax law will sink in when 2018 tax returns are filed fifteen months from now,” and Moore adds that if blue-state sinkhole politicians don’t get their houses in order, “they will see right before their very eyes how taxes matter as moving vans whisk taxpayers from blue[-] to red[-]state America at an accelerated pace.”……”

The Fascism of today’s American Press

Fascism:  any movement, tendency, or ideology that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition.

Accordingly, name one relatively  well read American  news publication that doesn’t hammer President Donald J. Trump nearly every issue!

The overwhelming majority of national “news” from  newspapers in America today is sold by college-crippled  leftist  professionals from  three fascistic national  American   Obamaling loving,  Soviet-like ‘journals’…… The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times.

Nearly all of major American television sources from coast to coast  also sell only  college-crippled, Obamaling loving, fascistic Soviet-like,   one Party politics whether news telling or “humor” whether news or for laughs.

Nearly all of our America’s educational institutions have also  become fascistic screamers and atheist preachers “religiously” selling leftism, antiAmericanism,  projecting their anti-truths to destroy the truths of  present and past.   In addition they  sell the arrival of twenty million foreigners, nearly all unlearned,  unskilled, to vote whether legal or not, to secure one Party  fascistic control of our already weakened and poorly educated America already owned in their Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary California, Oregon, and Washington to be…. where the know-better Hillary  “Democrat” neoStalinists can dictate One Party  life at every  level “for the good of the country”.

Our courageous, bright, skilled problem solver, totally American, skilled  builder  President Donald J. Trump, has had to endure leftism’s   poison  and evil from  every Obamaling fascism’s corner in America, about 99% Democrat Party and 30 % Romney type Republican Party aristocrats who apparently  went to school or college to study  how they can best learn to hate honesty, forthrightness, courage,  and white males in four years or less.   Fasicism needs them!



The Imps at Powerline who want to take the Trump out of Our Donald!


by Paul Mirengoff  at Powerline:

Richard Epstein offers a “mixed report card” for President Trump’s first year. Here’s the short version:

The bad news is the man. The good news is his administration. The overall picture is a tricky composite.

The bad news has two facets:

Trump’s personality is marred by two fatal flaws that his opponents relentlessly exploit. The first is that he is a bully whose specialty is the abusive and tasteless tweet. The second is that he is extraordinarily thin-skinned and immature, so that he will always take the bait when provoked. Democrats today know that harsh comments can lure him into senseless outbursts. . . .

So long as Trump is in office, his outsized personality will impose huge costs in time and morale on the Republican Party, and make it difficult for the GOP to retain control over the House and the Senate in 2018.

I agree.

The good news is, as Epstein says, Trump’s administration. In fact, I give Trump higher marks on this side of the equation than Epstein does, though I agree, in the main, with Epstein’s critique of the president on trade issues. For one thing, Epstein focuses almost entirely on economic issues, so he doesn’t give Trump as much credit as he deserves for reversing, in part, President Obama’s foreign and national security policy.

Perhaps because I find even more to like than Epstein does in Trump’s administration, I don’t view the “composite” of Trump’s first year quite so “tricky.” Epstein, though, ends up drawing a composite that’s close to mine. He concludes:

The current report card is mixed, but so far the economic positives have outweighed the personal negatives. Happy New Year.

I wonder if anyone at PowerLine….any Republicans who run or try to run the Republican show from Washington to frozen Minnesota, from corrupt Massachusetts to Fascist California will awaken to the reality of this American President, Donald J. Trump…….”Oh my, his hair!”  “God forbid his language!”  “Damn his Tweets!”   “He’s a hater!…..(of women, blacks, and Hispanics, America’s  Schumer type FASCISTS advertise.)”    Some at Fox have come to scent a hero in Trump, but the Stirewalts get fatter and fatter eating, dreaming, and thinking everything yesterday BD….Before Donald….and what it could have been if only the  Foxies would lead the show.

I like, I love our unique American, Donald J. Trump, as he is, as he organizes, as he directs, as he listens, as he collects more of his knowledge FOR THE WORDS AND DEEDS HE PUTS TOGETHER TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

I love our Donald for his packing our Nation’s courts with people noted for their honesty, integrity, intelligence and knowledge of the Law of the Land rather than loading it with Ruth Bader Ginsburgs.

DONALD TRUMP IS AN AMERICAN LEADER AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL, BY BEING DONALD J. TRUMP!!   And, I have a hunch that the majority leaders programmed  to be  wusses heading Republican Headquarters anywhere and everywhere, are beginning to wake up to reality that this President is most likely to become  the savior of Freedom in America and its JudeoChristian principles and values.

He’s has always had energy, brains, love of family, love and care for his country that has become so generous to him and his parents.  His ego and adulthood have turned him to work for his country and its people!!!   Thank GOD he has learned to negotiate rather than spread the the slime of ‘clever’ politicians!



Are All Today’s Democrats Bigots? The Obama Legacy?


You can’t make this stuff up: Vogue, a reliable Democratic Party outlet, has gone crazy over First Lady Melania Trump’s White House Christmas decorations:

Melania Trump unveiled the White House holiday decorations on Monday, which are, as some people on the internet have noticed, very, very white.

White decorations at Christmas? The horror!

No, wait, that was the Obamas in 2015. Never mind…

This is truly beyond the pale:

In a year during which many have speculated that Melania hates her husband and does not want to be First Lady at all (a claim that has recently resurfaced), Melania’s White House Christmas could be interpreted as a snowy and desolate manifestation of her own isolation, which begs the question: Is she trying to tell us something?

This isn’t just over-the-top partisan, it is borderline insane. The craziness continues:

Indeed, some of the decorations brought to life an apocalyptic, barren landscape similar to what some of us imagine lies in America’s future, or the calming white walls of a mental institution.

You have to see it for yourself, or you would never believe how nutty–speaking of mental institutions–today’s Democrats have become.

Vogue goes on to assemble some of the “best reactions to Melania’s White House creations.” All of which are sick. Here is just one example:

When I read this sort of thing, I always wonder: did anyone say anything like this about Michelle Obama? I lived through those long eight years, and I can tell you the answer is No. As an antidote to the Democrats’ hatefulness, let’s close with some photos of this year’s White House decorations:

America’s Mobs of Leftists Attack Bible Museum

People are Mad the Museum of the Bible Represents ‘Only a Judeo-Christian Perspective’

Apparently they miss that it’s called the Museum of the Bible.

Apparently they miss that it’s called the Museum of the Bible.

Life sized sculptures of Galileo, right, and George Washington Carver, center, at an exhibit showing biblical influence on science at the Museum of the Bible which opens to the public today on November, 18, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Some people have voiced frustration with the fact that the Museum of the Bible only represents a “Judeo-Christian” perspective and leaves out other religions Friday.

These critics say the Museum of the Bible, within walking distance from the National Mall in Washington, D.C., doesn’t reflect other religious point of views, such as an Islamic one, and also singularly focuses on American Protestantism, reports The New York Times. One professor also critiqued the museum for not telling viewers which areas in the Bible are historically accurate or not.

“There are a number of prominent omissions that make it clear that it’s not a museum of the Bible as one might imagine it from a secular perspective. They don’t do a good job of talking about whether parts of the Bible are historically accurate,” Joel S. Baden, Yale University’s professor of the Hebrew Bible, told the outlet. Baden also disagreed with the lack of representation of Islam and Mormonism in the Museum of the Bible.

The Museum of the Bible, with six floors of religious pieces, opened Saturday to the public. Described as a “must see” museum of 2017 by the Smithsonian Institute, the museum offers viewers the opportunity to see some of the earliest Bibles made in the United States, as well as witnessing an Israeli scribe working on a Torah and parts of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Hobby Lobby CEO Steven Green founded the museum and set up the foundation that would fund the $500 million project.
