SALT IN THE WOUND – WE LOVE TO SEE THE BLEEDING HEARTS HOWL

Rubbing salt in the wound is a metaphor that typifies a situation where a protagonist doubles up by criticizing a target; been going on for years.  The verbal salt assault ramps up pain to such a degree that the receiver can no longer take the scorn; they then lash out, but to no avail. In the case we are alluding to is the new tax law signed by President Trump in December 2017.

SALT is an acronym for State and Local Taxes. According to the new law, State and Local tax deduction limits are set at $10,000 combined when itemizing vs the new standard deduction of $12,000 for singles and $24,000 for marrieds.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) limited the ability of taxpayers to deduct state and local taxes (SALT) from their federal taxable income. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called it an act of war and California Senate Leader Kevin de Leon inveighed against a “tax scam [that] disproportionately harms California taxpayers.”  PLEASE DON’T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA!  SALT hurts these progressive maniacs to such a degree that they have to lash out at the President, but IT IS OK FOR THEM TO TAX THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF THEIR TAXPAYERS.  A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITICAL TWO FACED CRIMINALS.

Unlike prior tax cuts or reform, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ends the longstanding practice of the federal tax code subsidizing high state and local taxes (known as SALT in tax code jargon). Instead of mostly well-off taxpayers being able to take an unlimited deduction for the state and local taxes they pay, the new tax law limits the deduction to $10,000 per family. This operates as if all 50 states changed their tax code all at once, because, unlike typical federal tax code changes, this reform doesn’t treat all states the same.

So what are these progressive malcontents doing about it? They are seeking a work around. How, you say, does that work? In their scheme (they are always scheming) they plan on allowing their taxpaying citizens to donate to a sham charity, set up by the individual state, the amount of SALT taxes due. This the will be treated as a charitable donation for Federal Income Tax. Not so fast says Uncle Sam. You can’t do that, but a valiant try nonetheless. We give them an A for tenacity, but an F for being Jerks. 

CONNECTICUT’S CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE CONTINUES UNDER MALLOY – NEW JERSEY’S MURPHY DOUBLES DOWN

A sanctuary state run by criminal democrats. Lock them up! BUILD THE  WALL! Connecticut is not alone, other states provide financial aid to illegal aliens. (click)New Jersey just entered the fray. But now the “do you hear us now” campaign is getting some traction when those who will pay for these scheming dreamers realize they will be burdened with debt infinitum.

Incentives to Break the Law’: Student Rips ‘Absurd’ Bill Allowing Illegal Immigrants to Apply for Financial Aid’

A Rutgers University student blasted a new bill that allows illegal immigrants attending college in New Jersey to apply for and receive financial aid.

“It’s just absurd that we’re giving illegal immigrants more and more incentives to break the law. … I’m going to be paying for that debt after college,” Nick Knight said.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) called the United States the “world’s melting pot” where people come “in the hope of a new life,” when he signed the legislation at Rutgers-Newark, according to NJ.com.

The Garden State became the ninth in the country to allow illegal immigrants to receive financial aid with the bill’s signing.

(click)Gov. Dannel P. Malloy signed into law Friday landmark legislation that allows undocumented immigrants to get state financial aid at Connecticut’s colleges and universities.

“The battle we are in over DACA has sought to punish children,” said Malloy. “It’s a toxic environment in which to exist and I hope the message to the world is that there is another way.”

He signed the bill surrounded by undocumented students lobbied at the Capitol for the bills’ passage for four years.

The House approved the proposal on Wednesday by a vote of 91-59, with 13 Republicans in support, following overwhelming support for the bill in the Senate.  YES THIS IS CORRECT 13 REPUBLICANS VOTED TO BURDEN OUR CITIZENS INTO THE DISTANT FUTURE.

The legislation mostly follows the provisions of the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, policy, which allows young illegal immigrants to remain in the country if certain requirements are met.

CHRISTIE WENT “ALL IN” BUT DIDN’T COLOR OUT

Governor Chris Christie of the Garden State was flush with taxpayer’s cash, went “all in” throwing good money after bad in Atlantic City. The results, four casinos were swept away, not by the Atlantic waves, but by the winds of time. A metaphor for other do-gooders, mostly of the liberal bent who continue to throw billions upon billions into public education. It just doesn’t work – stupid is stupid.P1050726

Perhaps the next stop for Governor Christie is Las Vegas, the city of dreams. A guy by the name of Adelson, knows a little bit about winning after all he owns the Sands, most likely will tell Christie that the way to win is to know when to walk away from the table.

Looking forward to 2016, Christie has to face the facts, his state is facing a 7% unemployment rate, Atlantic City’s rate is approaching 15%, Newark is in Detroit class and citizens are picking up and leaving before more of their savings are confiscated by big government. Can anyone imagine a Christie presidency? What would you have, Obama light.”

The Revel, the most recent casino, cost $2 billion and change folded up like a cheap suit. This was Christie’s biggest gamble, one where he said that Atlantic City is back. Actually, the casino industry in Atlantic City had their back up against the wall for the past decade. Revel Atlantic City from boardwalk.jpg

Revel’s next door neighbor also folded, the Showboat is no more. The Trump Plaza crapped out closing its doors after the Miss America Pageant on September 16.  What is left are the memories. Perhaps the collapse of Atlantic City’s icons are a good thing, less places to lose your money means spending on things you need may jump start the economy.

When will those who gamble on casinos creating jobs realize that bottom line “that casino and all forms of gambling  are not net job creators.
