Skip to comments.Because of asset seizures, I am starting my new company outside California

While the law stipulates that I must surrender this money, I refuse to acknowledge this as a tax at all. This is not a tax. This is an asset seizure plain and simple. The term retroactive tax is a despicable euphemism. It is no different than when Hugo Chavez used the benign-sounding nationalize to describe his seizure of private property in Venezuela.
Now before I go any further, let me tell you what I am not.
I am not a Tea Party member. I am not even a Republican. Twice I have voted for Barack Obama, and I was supportive of his tax compromise earlier this year. I am not a person who opposes paying taxes, even higher ones. I am a very reasonable person who respects the great opportunity that America has given to me.
But there is a very clear and unambiguous line between taxes regardless of how high they are and asset seizures. The State of California has taken money from me. Money that I already earned and paid taxes on, and I will not tolerate this act of theft.

I have run into some stunned Obama voters recently.
Well then stay in your cesspool, Californication...
I don’t feel sorry for anybody who voted for 0bama. This guy got what he asked for. He deserves it. He voted to screw me and all conservatives.
Literally ‘stuned’ Obama voters ~ and now you know what it means to be ‘stuned’
Major stuneage of Leftist beebers, eh?
What a maroon! Hope he stays out of Colorado. We have enuff of his type of idiot here.
So have I. The are confused why their taxes and insurance premiums are going up. Most have refused to acknowledge us eeeevil conservatives were right. However, one has actually applied for a pistol permit. Somehow, I doubt that’s what Obama wanted.
Alrighty then... Moving from California to New York - now there is a brilliant move for you. Because we know New York will never resort to the type of asset theft he has experienced in California... Never...
He's too stupid to run a company, he's too stupid to work for a company, best he find a cardboard box and an overpass to live under.
But he’s moving to New York City, another high tax place.
I am not sure he is going not encounter the same problem in NY, within a year or 2.
That is why moved from So. Cal to Dallas.
I agree I’ll take bad weather (we spend most modern lives indoors anyway) over bad government. I also was tired of having be told to me that I was EVIL for making good decisions (when I was young and now) and work my butt off to make a better-than-most living.
I won’t stay where I am not wanted, so I left the place of my birth and life and haven’t looked back except to have great Schadenfreude, especially with articles like this.
California may be closer to the tipping point than it thinks.
I’ve had it with these Soviets! I’m moving to Cuba!
No self described “reasonable person” would have ever voted for Obama, twice.
Somehow, I doubt thats what Obama wanted.
I am not so sure becasue The O-hole will blame everything on conservatives. He is a community disorganizer.
Excellent post, mrsmel.
He can stay out of Ohio too.I’ve got a serious infestation of liberal morons just to the north of us,it’s called Cleveland.
Well if you look up his company here:
You find out the true story.
It took me about 5 minutes to figure out who Obama was in Feb/March 2008 when he seriously challenged Clintoon for the Dem nomination. Some dense people need more clues.
This should link correctly:
This, ladies and gentleman, is what you get when you vote for gay policies and because you are made against the war on women ... or the war in Iraq, or you are some sort of environmental nut case.
I hope he goes to infect some other liberal state with his madness. Stay the HELL out of the Red States ...he and his ilk are like a virus that just keeps popping up and cannot be eradicated.
“Twice I have voted for Barack Obama, and I was supportive of his tax compromise earlier this year.”
Then you got what you voted for, didn’t you, moron? Just wait; it gets a whole lot worse over the next 4yrs.
He's going to New York. LoL.
Amen to that we have WAY to many Californians here in Colorado.
Wouldn’t the taxes in NYC be higher than in CA?
So he’s moving his company to New York. Great. Instead of asset seizures, he’ll get worse weather and smaller sodas. And THEN they’ll probably seize his assets with a retroactive tax, between Bloomberg and Cuomo.
Maybe he’ll learn someday. Maybe.
However, if we're serious about turning things around, these people are opportunities.
This person could vote more conservative next time.
Isn't that our goal? Shouldn't we be pleased that they've seen the light?
What can we do to further enlighten them?
Oh, no government will never steal the assets of the citizens.
Retroactive tax increases.
Stupid liberal. Stay there! We don’t want any more of you moving out to screw up other states like you did California. You made your bed, now lay in it.
He’s moving to NEW YORK. He’s a lost cause.
What a pedestrian!
“You can’t tax me, I voted for Obama!”
Thanks for posting. Stories like this just make my day.
Voted twice for Obozo?
Then it is not asset seizure, it’s retroactive tithing to your religion. You asked for it, now enjoy a big heaping serving of fascism.
Anyone voting for the Kenyan a second time is just paying a well deserved tax on stupidity. It should be 95%.
I will try to state this briefly about illegal federal taxes.
State governments evidently do not understand that the Supreme Court has clarified that Congress’s power to lay taxes is limited. Consequently, state governments are now unthinkingly trying to rob taxpayers by means of asset seisures, as Mr. Goldberg has put it, because they don’t understand that corrupt Congress is arguably robbing state revenues in the form of illegal federal taxes being layed on citizens.
I gotta say, the liberal mind sure is full of mush and hypocrisy. Frankly, I think he not only got what he asked for, he's going to get a double infusion of it when he moves to his beloved liberal NYC. HAHAHAHAH !
“I am not a Tea Party member. I am not even a Republican. Twice I have voted for Barack Obama...”
Elections have consequences. You’re a dumbass - that has consequences, too. Good luck with that.
Don't think I could have mumbled it under my breath any better... hahaha
Tax him into my backyard shed. LOL What a dumby.
Hard to feel sorry for the morons that voted for Obama though. Personally, I think their assets should be the first to be seized.
Heh. Touche! Ya got me there.
I just think we need to help people understand instead of rejecting them because they didn’t “get it” as soon as we’d like.
Unfortunately we can’t be an exclusive club and get our way at the same time. The math doesn’t lie.
Clearly a liberal who has been mugged, just not mugged badly enough to get his head on straight and become a conservative.
So now this genius is moving his new company to the east coast, New York, specifically, and he expects everything to be better. Truly, insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.
no sympathy. we warned people about voting for obama and other libtards. we warned them what they were going to do.
You're missing out on an important fact: they never DO see the light. These people practice tribalism in politics. They are unable to EVER see past step one in any process. They refuse to acknowledge consequence. Even if they are aware of the negative consequences, they choose to ignore it for "a greater good". They truly are the lessors on the intelligence scale because they think with their hormones instead of their brains.
For instance: Gun Control to them = less guns = safer society so... the answer is: outlaw guns. That's it. There is nothing else to say, it's emotional to them and they can't reason with consequences.
Another example: We feel sorry for GroupX because their quality of life suffers for ReasonZ. We need money and there is only one place to get it: tax the wealthy. They can't comprehend the idea that conservatives "have no heart" when they refuse to hand over the cash. Again, it's emotional to them, they equate that refusal to hand over your cash to you being stingy bastard. They don't see past phase one of their plan.
I often compare them to the SouthPark underwear gnomes. If you haven't seen that episode, search it out and watch it... the relationship will become crystal clear.
These people cannot be turned, they are zombies for all intents and purposes. If they don't make the transition in their early 30's like most people who grow up and see reality, they never will.
LOL! I think moving to New York is just as good. Oppression of a different sort..

Furthermore, in this excerpt he doesn't mention whether he voted for Governor Moonbeam and in favor of the Demagogic Party lock on the state legislature, but it's safe to assume that he did.
