A short compilation of idiocy in America.


There’s easy relief for the taxpayers in the states controlled by the Social Democrats.

No relief in sight for taxpayers denied deductions for state and local taxes

President Donald Trump again indicated this week that he might be open to revisiting the new limit on state and local tax deductions that hits many middle-income residents hard in California and other high-tax, Democratic states.

Even so, don’t count on any changes soon to the Republican tax law that went into effect last year.

Legislative and political realities mean the $10,000 cap is unlikely to be scrapped or increased until after the 2020 elections at the earliest.

Although opposition to the cap is widely believed to have helped defeat Republican House members in California, New York and New Jersey last November, a key Senate Republican is adamantly opposed to a change. And increasing or eliminating the cap probably wouldn’t help get those seats back.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat and leader of the fight against the cap, this month called the new tax policy “an economic civil war that helps red states at the expense of blue states.”

Cuomo met with Trump at the White House Tuesday to discuss the matter.

“I told the president myself today: SALT repeal is hurting us. And if you hurt New York, you’re harming the economic engine of the nation,” Cuomo tweeted afterward. [snip]

Republicans argue that the state and local tax deduction is mostly used by the wealthy and is unfair to residents of lower-tax states. Capping the deduction helped simplify the tax code and make it more equitable, they said.

What’s more, the rules adopted by the new House Democratic majority mean they would have to raise hundreds of billions of dollars elsewhere to make up for the tax revenue lost by reinstating the deduction. That would increase Republican opposition. [snip]

Each of the complaining states can easily remediate this problem. Toss out the illegals, cut welfare, vote for capitalism, not socialism and the problem is solved.


She’s head of the House? Dear God, does she know what century we’re in now.

CONFUSION: Pelosi wishes ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ — on Valentine’s Day!

What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi?

The House Speaker held a public bill signing on Thursday, and during her remarks, she wished reporters a “Happy Thanksgiving.”

It was Valentine’s Day. She was a mere 84 days late.

The woman second in line to the presidency didn’t correct herself.

Earlier in the day, the House Speaker gave her weekly brief press conference, she could be seen suffering brain freezes, confusing millions and billions, and at one point, caught herself holding up only five fingers while talking about six bills. [snip]

This is what Progressivism does to the brain.


Death in the kitchen. Another alarm from the mushwits.

Burnt toast could be more toxic than TRAFFIC FUMES, scientists warn

BURNT toast can expose people to more pollution than if they were standing at a busy road junction, a study has claimed.

Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin found burnt toast was especially harmful and the safest way was to “go for gold” – allowing the bread to turn a light gold colour.

The team of experts built a mock-up of a three-bed house and equipped it with monitors to assess how everyday activities impacted on air quality.

Roasting and frying can also prove to be toxic, the research found.

Roasting and frying can also prove to be toxic, the research found.

But researcher Marina Vance said the biggest shock was discovering just what the impact of toasters was.

It was found they sent toxic particles into the air the moment they are switched on, The Times has reported.

Vance said at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science: “When you make toast, the heating element starts warming up the debris and gunk in the toaster which includes oils.”

Other pollutants included cleaning agents, especially household sprays, and air-purifiers which give off scents when plugged in to a socket.

Scented candles and wood-burning stoves were also found to be powerful polluters.

Other research recently published in the academic journal Atmosphere measured just how bad some of the pollutants were. [snip]

Evryone needs to move out to their backyard or nearest park where they can browse on the luscious herbs and forbs  found there. Just avoid where the dogs peed.


Race Day opener

A new day and a new way will open the racing season starting with the Daytona 500. Every Social Democrat with two nickles to rub together has been to the bookie and is betting on AOC’s entry into that august field of gear jammers.

The driver of this wondrous machine has yet to be announced. Speculation among the knowing leads us to believe that Sen Markey is the front runner for this august honor. We wonder how the selected driver will respond to:

“Drivers, Start your motors.”

Democratic socialist wunderkind Ocasio-Cortez compares her election to landing on the moon and wiring America for electricity saying ‘we’ve done what we thought was impossible’

Democratic socialist wunderkind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Friday that her surprising election victory, and those of other liberal congressional freshmen, are on a par with a series of landmark moments in American history.

During a press conference hosted by the Sunshine Movement, an advocacy group that leverages youth protests to oppose global warming, the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez said her Nov. 6 achievement ranks with the 1969 Moon landing and the 1964 Civil Rights Act. [snip]

More proof that socialism pollutes, destroys rather than buld and like the old USSR, collapses under incompetence, malfeasance and an unswerving belief in socialism as the future.

Venezuela Is Leaking Oil Everywhere

From a distance, the scene is beautiful, a dark pool shimmering under the midday sun, reflecting billowing clouds. But when you close in on the dirt-packed trail leading toward a trio of storage tanks, a pungent odor makes it clear. It’s not pretty; it’s an oil spill.

In this one spot in the Orinoco Belt, a region in Venezuela named for the river that flows above the world’s largest deposits of crude, so many barrels have escaped from underground pipes that a 2,150-square-foot pit around the tanks is filled to the brim. The country is pockmarked with these messes, as Petroleos de Venezuela’s infrastructure rots after years of neglect, scant investment and corruption scandals under the regimes of the late Hugo Chavez and his successor as president, Nicolas Maduro.

Venezuela, an OPEC member dependent on oil sales for almost half the national budget, is pumping at the lowest levels since the 1940s.

The spills are conspicuous signs of what has gone so horribly wrong at once-mighty PDVSA. The state-owned company doesn’t publish statistics, but environmentalists, analysts and workers keep seemingly endless lists of examples of wayward crude—unleashed by busted valves, ripped gaskets, cracked pipes and on and on—that they say has polluted waterways and farmland and probably has seeped into aquifers.[snip]

While the watermelons chatter and preach about how we need to ‘become sustainable’, they when in power, care less about the environment.
They only want to control you.
