In the Liberal/Socialist/Communist socioeconomic world, Keynesian and Krugman ideas produce some very bitter ends. The carnage is bipartisan, those from whom the Socialists have stolen livelihoods to the Idiots practicing this amoral ideal. No winners, only losers and a demented governing policy result every time.

In upstate NY, a snowflake melts under court order. And he turned into ice before losing.

Parents can kick their 30-year-old son out of their home, court rules

The strange case of a New York state couple going to court to get their 30-year-old son to move out has ended in favor of the parents, according to media outlets in upstate New York.

State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood ruled Tuesday that Michael Rotondo must leave his parents’ home in Camillus in upstate New York, reported TV station WSTM.

Rotondo said he planned to appeal, calling the judge’s decision “outrageous,” reported WSYR. [snip]

Rotondo’s parents, Christina and Mark Rotondo, have been trying for months get their son to move out, according to WTHR. At one point, they even offered him money to help find a new place to live, reported Syracuse.com.

He steadfastly refused and insisted they violated state laws by not giving him a proper six months’ written notice, the station reported.

The case may be far from over. [snip]

Perhaps they should have offered him a trophy for leaving. That seems to work on most of the Snowflakes.

According to any Socialist, “It’s not your money”. That makes it fine that the Government takes it from you.

Left-Wing Billionaire Michael Bloomberg: Raising Taxes on Poor People Is a “good thing.”

Bloomberg: “The question is do you want to pander to those people?”
Bloomberg: “Taxes or life? Which do you want to do? Take your poison.”

Michael Bloomberg, a nanny-state-imposing left-wing billionaire, is now on video promoting tax increases on poor people, calling such tax hikes a “good thing.” For years, Bloomberg has personally funded and promoted all sorts of regressive taxes and regulations in an attempt to push people around. He uses the coercive power of the government to force people to live their lives as he sees fit.

So here is Bloomberg on stage with another global mandarin, Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund. Bloomberg refers to low income individuals as “those people” and takes shots at the U.S. military and coal miners. He clearly reveals his arrogant, bullying worldview [click here for video]:

Michael Bloomberg: “Some people say, well, taxes are regressive. But in this case, yes they are. That’s the good thing about them because the problem is in people that don’t have a lot of money. And so, higher taxes should have a bigger impact on their behavior and how they deal with themselves. So, I listen to people saying ‘oh we don’t want to tax the poor.’ Well, we want the poor to live longer so that they can get an education and enjoy life. And that’s why you do want to do exactly what a lot of people say you don’t want to do.

The question is do you want to pander to those people? Or do you want to get them to live longer? There’s just no question. If you raise taxes on full sugary drinks, for example, they will drink less and there’s just no question that full sugar drinks are one of the major contributors to obesity and obesity is one of the major contributors to heart disease and cancer and a variety of other things.

So, it’s like saying, ‘I don’t want to stop using coal because coal miners will go out of work, will lose their jobs.’ We have a lot of soldiers in the United States in the US Army, but we don’t want to go start a war just to give them something to do and that’s exactly what you’re saying when you say ‘well, let’s keep coal killing people because we don’t want coal miners to lose their jobs.’ The truth of the matter is that there aren’t very many coal miners left anyways and we can find other things for them to do. But the comparison is: a life or a job. Or, taxes or life? Which do you want to do? Take your poison.”

Christine Lagarde: “So its regressive, it is good. There are lots of tax experts in the room. And fiscal experts, and I’m very pleased that they hear you say that. And they all say that two things in life which are absolutely certain. One is death, the other one is tax. So you use one to defer the other one.”

Bloomberg: “That’s correct. That is exactly right. Well said.” [Applause]

You have to remember that Bloomberg doesn’t pay taxes on earned income. He doesn’t have any. He clips coupons on bonds, collects other interest and dividends. All that is taxes at the huge rate of 15%.

These last are remarkably alike, separated by some thousands of miles and pure mushwit governance.

Venezuelans buy bus tickets out after Maduro wins re-election

Betsabeth Casique saved for eight months for bus tickets out of Venezuela for herself and her three children. At 1.4 million bolivars each, they are worth what she earns in a month working as a nurse.

It is less than two dollars at the black market exchange rate.

When socialist President Nicolas Maduro won re-election to a six-year term on Sunday in a vote the opposition and foreign governments called illegitimate, Casique decided to leave, first for the western city of San Cristobal and from there to Cucuta, Colombia. [snip]

It appeared the emigration crisis Venezuela had experienced in recent years as its economy collapsed would continue since Maduro’s government was unlikely to change policies that led to hyperinflation, food and medicine shortages and rising crime.

The United Nations has estimated that nearly 1 million Venezuelans the country left between 2015 and 2017. [snip]

Feet are the greatest votes. One cannot rig a migration; apparent to the world is the popularity of the government. Next comes the Banana Leaf Curtain like the USSR’s Iron one. Maduro will have to do this to keep out all the world from trying to get into Venezuela to partake of their diet and weight reduction health plan.

Meanwhile the same thinking is occurring in Illinois, mostly for the same reasons. Strange how this happens, no?

Illinoisans Fleeing State by Tens of Thousands over Taxes and Financial Loss

Illinois is losing more citizens than nearly every other state, and according to reports, the biggest reason citizens are leaving is that they can no longer afford to live in the Land of Lincoln.

Certainly, Americans move from place to place for a large variety of reasons. From new jobs, to schooling, to weather and family, Americans are a people motivated by the need for change. But in Illinois, one of the major reasons to seek a change of venue is because the state is simply taxing them out of their homes, according to Chicago’s WGN TV.

According to reports, Illinois alone lost 33,703 citizens to outward migration last year. In 2016, the state lost another 37,508 people. A report by the Chicago Tribune also noted that Chicago has been a net loser of its citizens for the last three years running. And the surrounding county was also a net loser of its population.

Indeed, Chicago is unique in the U.S. for being the only major city that has consistently lost citizens over the last five years. The Tribune’s editorial board even published an editorial saying that it no longer makes any sense to live in Illinois. [snip]

With so many leaving Illinois, it is no wonder that moving van Line company United Van Lines ranked the state as number one for outbound moving vans.

So, how is the state’s legislature reacting to the tens of thousands of constituents leaving every year over high taxes? Well, legislators are proposing a massive tax hike, naturally.

Unlike Venezuela, Illinois cannot erect a wall around the State. That would admit that Trump is correct. The only possibility is to jam in place an exit tax. New York is trying this by grabbing as much as they can from fleeing ex-pats.
However to keeping the social programs in place requires loot. This explains the increases in taxation and that other nasty program of impounding cars for minor traffic violations. It can cost upward of a couple thousand to get your car back. But so what, IT’S NOT YOUR MONEY, REMEMBER!
