The Eventual Effects Of Crime And High Taxes
Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit and other cities are seeing a continuing exodus of its citizens, moving to better and safer locations due to crime and violence. They are also moving from states with high state taxes like California, Michigan and New York. Some of these states are now offering businesses tax free exemptions to move there because of revenue loss.
Why? Why didn't someone see the handwriting on the wall and take preventative steps to stop the problem? Why didn't the cities crack down on crime before it got out of hand? Why didn't states tighten their budgets prior to realizing people were moving out?
Why? People are fed up with thugs who commit crime every day. People are fed up with big governments that tax the common citizen at every opportunity. Moreover people are fed up with liars and thieves who run these governments, lining their pockets.
So what happens? Slowly but surely, law abiding citizens move to a healthier, less taxing, environment, leaving the cities to the lawless and government officials. The tax base of the city grows smaller and services are reduced or cut. The city falls into disrepair, homes are foreclosed and the final result is one giant ghetto whose inhabitants feed on each other.
Businesses that are burned out in riots rarely return to rebuild. In the current Baltimore rioting, my thoughts are that the CVS that was looted and burned will not return. The almost completed, senior citizens building which would have had sixty low-income residencies may or may nor return.
Political corectness is totally out of hand and the media and government say nothing without making sure that it is PC. There is always some bleeding heart coming forward and crying inequality, injustice or religous persecution.
Allowing thugs to rule the streets, looting and burning everything in sight is insane. The media fans the flames with extensive coverage while incorrectly reasoning that the thugs are protesting someone's death by police.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. While some may indeed be upset by an unexplained death, the majority look at the situation as an opportunity to steal.
Time and space does not allow further and deeper thoughts, but the day is nearing when the majority will stand up and not allow a few people to control the lives of the many.....
The News As I See It: Hillary Clinton was channeling Obama during her recent speech in New York City. She focused on equality, justice and how hard it was for her growing up as a young black man in Hawaii. Clinton wrote an Op-Ed for a paper in Iowa about her plans to help the middle class. Middle-class Americans said, "Why didn't you just say that in a speech?" and she said, "Because I charge $200,000 for a speech."
Bruce Jenner, In a two-hour interview last Friday, told ABC's Diane Sawyer, "For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman." At which point, Joe Biden ran in and started giving Bruce a shoulder rub.

Today's Horoscope: Taurus - April 29th: Today might be the day when you get stuck in a hole with a dwarf. All that research you did into dwarf habits in order to prevent mental breakdown should come in handy. Giving dwarfs nicknames like "Shorty" or any reference to Snow White's entourage may be in poor taste.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Jim decided to tie the knot with his long time girlfriend. One evening, after the honeymoon, he was cleaning his fishing gear. His wife was standing there watching him.
After a long period of silence she finally speaks, "Honey,I've been thinking, now that we are married, I think it's time you quit fishing. Maybe you should sell your boat." Jim got a horrified look on his face.
She says, "Darling, what's wrong?" Jim replied, "There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife." She screamed, "Ex-wife?! I didn't know you were married before!" Jim said, "I wasn't....."
Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were taking a walk one fine March day. One remarked to the other, "Windy, ain't it?" The second man replied, "No, it's Thursday." The third man chimed in, "So am I. Let's have a beer.
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my pal Mike for his contributions to today's stories.
A young fellow at the state fair stood watching an old Indian. Above the old Indian was a sign that read, "$5.00 - If I can't tell you where you're from, I'll pay you $50.00." The young man watched a cowboy approach the Indian and ask, "Is the sign right?" The Indian says, "yes." The cowboy hands him a five and says, ""you're on."
The Indian looks the cowboy up and down, noticing some cow dung on his boots and flatly states, "you're from Wyoming." The cowboy shakes his head and says, "I'll be darned! You're right" and strolls away.
A second cowboy approaches the Indian and goes through the same routine. Handing him the fiver, he stands and watches as the Indian looks him up and down and notices a bit of straw and cow dung on his boots. The Indian says, "you're from Montana." The dejected cowboy walks away.
The young man decides he's going to give the Indian a run for the money. He goes into the men's room, takes his boots off, scrubs them up, dries them off, puts on a coat of polish and approaches the Indian. He hands the Indian a five dollar bill and says, "Do your stuff."
The Indian looks and looks, up and down, and appears to be befuddled. The young man is now thinking he's gone one up on the Indian. The Indian says, "You're from Arkansas."
The young man gets really upset and can't for the life of him figure out how the Indian could know that, so he asks, "How in the world did you know I'm from Arkansas?" The Indian replies, "By the wool on your zipper."
A man and his wife were driving home one very cold night when the wife asks her husband to stop the car. There was a baby skunk lying at the side of the road and she got out to see if it was still alive.
The baby skunk was alive and she said to her husband, "It’s nearly frozen to death. Can we take it with us, get it warm and let it go in the morning?" He said, "Okay, get in the car with it."
His wife got in the car with the little skunk and asked, "Where shall I put it to get it warm?” He says, "Put it in between your legs. It’s nice and warm there." She asked, "But what about the smell?" Her husband replied, "Just hold its little nose."
That's it for today, my little polecats. Remember, the life you lead contains strong language, adult situations and nudity. Discretion is advised. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
