    I can't stand repubs for not being an effective opposition. For not giving me a choice. I am so disgusted with both parties and yearn for someone to vote. I think I will sit out the next one-unless Hillary runs-then will vote against.

    Taxes on spirits, beer, tobacco, tariffs paid for the govt.s needs from the
    colonies until WW1.

    To think this country existed without income taxes until what 1920s?? prior to that there was a short period of income taxes to pay off debt from the civil war and then it was abolished again. Just imagine, no endless wars, no arresting millions of Americans to build the prison industrial complex and people feel the hunger in the belly and will start rioting against offshoring etc.

    I can't believe the bald guy-he is saying they are enslaving this race of beings-really??? Turn them loose in Africa and have lions, hyenas eat their foals alive and chase them and kill them and eat them. Everytime they go to water, they have to be fearful of an ambush from the predators on land and crocodiles-every single time they have to drink. Then of course every night have the lions come and eat them.

    Too many people grow away from nature and really have no clue about life and death. Hey just turn out horsies in a big field to graze on tax payers dime . They never have to do anything-just have others pay for their existence. What a shame...

    Here is another take on the NV standoff. Looks like a solar developer might be interested in the land being grazed by Bundy.

    The point is that cattle destroy the natural eco system. It doesn't make any
    difference whether that is Nevada or Brazil. Cattle cause destruction

    Umm no. The ecosytem does not exist by itself as the Disney lovers believe.. Grazing animals have been part of the ecosystem for a gazillion years. it is a balance and we play the role of the predators to keep it in balance and check overgrazing. if we don't , the animals will die off from lack of food anyways.

    My only thing is that he is not paying any fees while running a business. That is like saying I have been renting a building for 50 yrs and so now I think the building is mine and I won't pay rent. Business is business-there are plenty of ranchers in TX, MT etc who own their own land and run their own herds. if you are running herds on leased land-govt or private-you are subject to the whims of the owner at the end of the contract.

    I would think that is a conservative position-usually it is the socialists who screech that owners are evil and renters should get the property after x number of years. many countries actually have this-usually communist/far left leaning countries.

    mmmarvel says

    I don't really have a problem with it. Just another example of what having high corporate tax rates will do - not only to companies but eventually people. Ah, but the only drum democrats know is tax, tax and tax some more.

    true, but only corporations can move away. America is the only first world country that taxes its non resident citizens-subject to an exemption and dual taxation treaties etc. no other first world country on earth does this-only us. But corporations of course can incorporate anywhere and escape taxes. Why can't I??

    That only works if the multi-generations are PAYING into the costs, which don't seem to be the case today... Mom and dad are paying the bills for the creatures living in the basement...

    Not only paying the bills, but doing the laundry, cooking cleaning and never getting to be retired and enjoying life.

    Another bogus bullshit claim is about endangered turttles.

    Have you ever seen Cows walking amongst rocks and bolders?

    NO! No you haven't, Cows would never step on a rock or anything shaped like one. They weigh a ton, and their leg might slip and they could break a bone and do some serious damage.

    If you've ever seen a pasture, there are a few trails where they keep most of the traffic. They don't trample the whole ground flat, nor do they destroy the grass. That's what Sheep and Goats do, that's why there was a big conflict with Sheep herders and Cattle ranchers, because the Sheep herds would destroy the grass.

    I don't like the FEds using bogus claims of turtles or endagenderd rats as excuses. Like they are using the smelt fish in Sacramento river to avoid diverting water for once in a century drought.

    But that is one issue-here the rancher is not paying and still grazing -which is not right. I do agree with you on cows not damaging the land. The BLM is very strict on how many cows are allowed to graze the land and it is scientific. Plus the land in NV is very different than east coast/midwest. I don't remember exactly, but I think it was 50 acres to support one cow or some such. it is very poor/sparse land and on top of that you have the mustangs that use the water and land

    But the guy is not paying up-which he should. Now maybe he is not paying up after the turtle incident-in which case, I am more neutral. I think the federal endangered species law is far too over reaching.

    Pity that a corporation is allowed to do this, but an American citizen is not. The welfare hordes must be quaking in their boots.

  • On 13 Apr 2014 in Electronic bracelets for gun owners???, lostand confused said:

    CaptainShuddup says

    The DOJ already has bracelets for gun owners, the one's on parole. And it doesn't stop them from blowing people away with Guns they got because Holder put them on the black market.

    Wow, I didn't realize they had that. Now they want to transfer it to law abiding citizens. I fear for this country-someday someone is going to have to fight for our freedom. We are humans, not cattle.

  • On 13 Apr 2014 in John Wayne whoops the Spooks, lostand confused said:

    he does not pay grazing fees, but still grazes cattle. If that is right, then why can't someone bring a horse to their neighbour's lawn and let it eat the grass and poop there too without permission?

    Now the bLM stopping grzing because of a turtle is dumb. if the Feds came to his land and did such nonsense-I would be outraged, but this is different. But I don't see how one can graze cattle for free. The grazing fees are very low. What is to stop miners, oil explorers to do it free then? Why can't I go and drill up federal land for oil for free??

    So the guy grazes his cattle for free on federal land and considers himself a hero? Wow must have been a banker in another life.

    Who knows, in the near future the NSA might actually start doing that. Want to stop us from telling the spouse you are cheating on them-pay 200 bucks a month. That is not too far fetched-especially if the gubmnt dries up on funding. Even the KGB can't hold a candle.

    Obviously they won't stop until 90% of women are single moms pushing their bastadrly strollers through the alleyways of local shopping malls. Instead of shaming the broads over moral vices of premarital sex they are exalting it as a form of idolatry like the hasidic orthodox hebrews who think they are so superior because their eat they matza and shun bread.

    Lets go party and get knocked up and hope it is a star and get 1/2 million a year in tax free child support. Oops was too drugged/drunk to notice who I was banging and even Maury ran out of DNA kits to test my possible baby daddys-no problem-the state supports me fully with everything. Not only do they support me, they are not allowed to even say anything bad about my conduct , while I live off their tax dollars and get knocked up multiple times more-suckers. No wonder this country is in such a mess.

  • On 6 Apr 2014 in Soaring Housing Costs Driving Educated People From Big Cities, lostand confused said:

    I myself left. Till about 2002/2003 I could afford a home. I can still buy a home, but will be stretched. I am looking at minimum of 1 acre properties here and have my pick of neighbourhoods and prices. I still do love CA, but prefer not being in debt . Of course then there is southern California and horrific commutes. I thought I would settle down in LA-not to be. I definitely prefer warmer weather-but hey maybe in another 15-20 yrs might move again. With the money and savings and if things go according to plan, I might be able to retire, so might move somewhere warmer . I wouldn't mind the southwest.

    tatupu70 says

    I'm from that region and have family there and I find it almost unbelievable

    Not really. With prices going down so much, the tax assessments are not matching the downward trajectory as rapidly. Take a look at Zillow or realtor on decent houses-list prices vs property taxes. You will find a few approaching that figure/rate. Disputing is a pastime, but still it takes a while.

    now of course 3%+ is almost standard especially collar counties of Cook. Cook was a bit less I believe , but Rahm is going to make up for that.

    Though in Indiana I believe they have a cap or maybe just counties on the amount I think?

    I am surprised residents put up with this crap though.
