Corporate Taxes For Thee, Not For Me.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D NY) who has said corporations should pay taxes at a rate of 70% is embroiled in a bit of a controversy after a failed business venture of hers has an unpaid tax bill on the books in New York.

US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise taxes on the rich — but not pay her own.

The Democratic socialist congresswoman from The Bronx still hasn’t paid a 7-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture.

AOC had founded Brook Avenue Press, a publishing house that sought designers, artists and writers from urban areas to help paint The Bronx in a positive way in children’s stories, in 2012.

As The Post previously reported, public records show the state dissolved the company in October 2016. The state can make such a move when a business fails to pay corporate taxes or file a return.

Harmeet K. Dhillon Is Not Happy. But Is He Wrong?

We’ve never met, seen or read anything from a person by the name of Harmeet k. Dhillon before, yet this epic rant was sent our way and we thought it was worthy of discussion. Dhillon appears to be from San Francisco, California.

Here’s what Dhillon had to say:

Biden, Guns, And Colin Noir.

We’re starting to like this Colin Noir fellow. In the video below, he takes Joe Biden to task over Biden’s run in with a Michigan auto worker over gun confiscation.

Biden’s statements are strange in this exchange. First the whole “yelling ‘fire in a crowded theater'” thing is wrong. Of course you can yell “fire!” in a crowded theater. What the law does not allow is the First Amendment protecting you against consequences when you shout “fire!” in a theater when there is no fire and people are harmed.

Secondly, his comment on the “AR-14” can be put down to extemporaneous speech where someone screws up a detail and we can forgive that. However, Biden is wrong on the use of AR-15 variants in home defense vs. a shotgun. Young kids have used the AR-15 against home invaders for the very reason Biden hates it – it is effective in closed spaces and has the capacity to carry more shots than a shotgun. There is a difference in the ability to control a shotgun and an AR-15 variant which is one of the reasons why it is the United States most popular long gun.

Star Trek Meets Bernie Sanders.

Satire.

Well done satire to boot.




Trump: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

You may or may not be aware that since being elected President, Donald Trump has not taken a salary.

Although the law requires him to receive a salary, he has always donated the salary to some cause or agency.

For his first three years in office, President Trump donated his $400,000 salary each quarter to different agencies. Each has received $100,000.

The White House provided a list of every recipient through the third quarter of last year:

2017:

  • Q1: NPS (Dept. of Interior)
  • Q2: Dept. of Ed
  • Q3: HHS
  • Q4: Transportation

2018:

  • Q1: VA
  • Q2: SBA
  • Q3: NIH
  • Q4: DHS

Did Sanders Just Lose Florida?

During and interview with 60 Minutes, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders praised oppressive Cuban leader Fidel Castro. He then doubled down on the praise in other settings.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., doubled down on his remarks praising former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during a televised town hall on Monday night after he raised eyebrows for complimenting the brutal leader’s education reforms.

“When Fidel Castro first came into power … you know what he did? He initiated a major literacy program. It was a lot of folks in Cuba at that point who were illiterate and he formed the Literacy Brigade … and they went out and they helped people learn to read and write You know what? I think teaching people to read and write is a good thing,” Sanders said in response to criticism.

This is a new ad released by the GOP.

It’s powerful and on point.




Letters To The Editor.

Failed politician Matt Fleming has a letter to the editor in the January 12, 2020 edition of the Florida Today. As is often the case with Fleming, the letter demonstrates a lack of understanding of many things, including the Constitution.

We’ll fisk the letter here.

POTUS should heed Constitution, too

Do you support going to war with Iran?

We didn’t think we are at war with Iran. In fact, we are sure we are not at war since there has been no declaration of war by the Congress.
