Scarborough To Rich Who Shield Money Abroad: 'You're Not Welcome in the USA: Leave!'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 01/21/2014 6:13:09 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

Is Joe Scarborough taking tips from NY Governor Andrew Cuomo? Cuomo recently declared that conservatives who are pro-life, pro-Second Amendment and opposed to gay marriage "have no place in the state of New York."

On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough took things a step further, telling rich people who shield money abroad to reduce their taxes "you're not welcome in the United States of America." Thundered the self-righteous Scarborough: "Follow your damn money. Leave! Go!" Wonder if Scarborough's banishment order applies to corporations as well as individuals? If so, say sayanora to Apple, Google, Microsoft, IBM, Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard . . . not to mention MSNBC's previous owner, GE, from whom Scarborough took paychecks for years. All are among the 15 US corporations with the most money held offshore.

This man makes no sense whatsoever. He says whatever pops into his tiny head.

My personal favorite today was his discussion with some writer about how the whole world is falling into poverty and Morning Schmoe agreed with that; then dopey Bill Gates came on and said that the world was becoming more middle class and MS agreed with THAT.

It’s a global economy. These leftists (Joe included) are satisfied creating a horrific environment here and then preventing free will of our citizens to do better in other places. The correct solution...simplify and fix our tax code and business climate to make us competitive. Their solution...continue to worsen the environment here and then trap everyone in like a Berlin Wall.

But the illegals that make use of our tax dollars are given the red carpet?

I am tired of all these elite sorts making declarations of who is welcome and who is not.

Maybe one day the snobby ones won’t be so welcome...

According to the US Supreme Court, it is not the duty of anyone to pay more in taxes than they are legally required.

"Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes." - Judge Learned Hand, Helvering v. Gregory, 69 F.2d 809, 810-11 (2d Cir. 1934).

Once again, I’m not advocating anything, just pointing it out... Once SHTF I expect that the numbers of “Getting Even” homicides will explode.

I see the anger and determination building up via the MSM and the internet. And once that anger reaches the right point it WILL be released. How is the question though?

I will point out that so far in the past few years all of the reported episodes of Mass murder have been done by members of the Left or left-leaning.

And what Scarborough and MSNBC are doing is just ramping that anger up another notch. And just who is their targeted viewing demographic? Well... I’ll leave that for your fertile imaginations.

Ironic isn’t it. Rich like Rockfeller foundation and Henry Ford foundation have billions giving to the poor

University’s like Harvard, Yale, have billions and churn out liberals.

These idiots have no idea what they are talking about which is why I no longer watch any tv news or discussion shows.

I am pretty much limited to the Food network or SiFY

Glenn Beck’s Open Letter to Gov. Cuomo: Are We Welcome in New York?

Jan. 20, 2014 3:21pm
Glenn Beck

Dear Gov. Cuomo:

In light of your comments this past Friday, in which you declared that those “…extremist conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon, anti-gay” have no place in the state of New York, we would humbly request a written explanation as to whether or not we are welcome to do business in this state. For many of our employees are pro-life and believe strongly in the Second Amendment. All of us will stand with any group being discriminated against.

But if we are not welcome, we will leave.

To give you some background on who we are and what we believe, Mercury Radio Arts and TheBlaze Inc. is a multimedia news, opinion and entertainment company, dedicated to delivering high-quality programming 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Through our Mercury One non-profit organization, we have also raised and given away for emergency relief over $14 million since its inception.

We were the first responders to Coney Island during Superstorm Sandy, not the federal government and not the state government, but Mercury One. We are good neighbors. We employ approximately 200 people in the State of New York and well over 300 people nationally from Washington D.C. to Dallas, Texas.


Our organization creates jobs for hundreds of people in your state, and provides news, opinion, entertainment and a helping hand for millions of people across this country. Are our contributions, tax dollars, and genuine goodness as citizens not welcome here?”

The company that recently took over the Obamacare Web Site responsibility from the former contractor is named Accenture. Accenture is Chicago based (where else)and was foremerly name Arthur Andersen & Co. They changed the name after the Anderson name got embroiled in various Financial Scandals most notably Enron. The company may be based in Chicago, but it is incorporated in Ireland for Tax purposes and outsources most of its’ IT work to India.

Any “US Person” (not only citizens but anyone who must file a US income tax return) must not only declare and pay taxes on any income no matter where it was earned, but must file an annual file an annual report to the Treasury list all non-US financial accounts, and thanks to FACTA, must provide a lot of details about those accounts.

The only people who are exempt are those with less than $100,000 in a non-US account.

Moreover, from the standpoint of the principles upon which this country was founded (as opposed to the “social justice” the left is attempting to strangle us with), by respecting the liberty and property rights of each citizen, the country was a superior place to put your money to work. But the current environment is no longer as appealing as elsewhere and fungible capital will go where it is most welcome.

When liberals attempt to increase domestic prosperity by destroying the ability of people to invest freely, they actually destroy our prosperity. Socialism only can work via coercion and socialism can never be as prosperous as liberty.

Sorry Joe, you have it all wrong.

The ‘rich’ will do fine and don’t care what windbag Scarborough has to say,

But down at our level a similar analogy is made for why the House should pass that Senate “Tax fairness’ bill that forces online businesses to collect sales taxes from customers resident in other states.

Here in Blue state Maryland buying products online is a way to protest Martin O Malley’s sales tax increase, and if the GOP in congress does his (Coumo and Jerry Brown’s too) bidding on this then they are no better than Dems.

Alabama Governor Extends Invitation To New York Conservatives
by Lonely Conservative • January 20, 2014 • 5 Comments

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news last week when he said that conservatives don’t belong in New York. Alabama Governor Dr. Robert Bentley responded by telling us to “come on down,” according to Yellowhammer News.

“In Alabama we strongly support and uphold our great U.S. Constitution on which our nation and our states were founded,” Bentley told Yellowhammer. “The Constitution serves to protect individual Freedoms. Among them are those guaranteed in the Second Amendment, which protects the right of the people to keep and bear Arms. We will protect the Freedoms of individuals and welcome any one or any company to Alabama to discover as so many have, that we are a pro-business state filled with good, hardworking people.”

Bentley also encouraged tourists thinking about their next travel destination to consider what Alabama has to offer.

“Alabama has so much for people to enjoy, from our warm sunny beaches to our beautiful lakes and rivers,” Bentley said. “We’re proud of the cultural diversity that makes our state so unique, and we welcome New Yorkers and anyone to experience for themselves what makes our state so great.”

Back in New York, it appears that a lot of New Yorkers were already leaving, even before Cuomo encouraged them to.

A migration study conducted by United Van Lines found that 61 percent of their New York clients in 2013 were moving to other states. That’s the third highest percentage in the country. (Read More)

My local PO0PO (Professional Official 0bama Propaganda Outlet) newspaper, the Albany (NY) Times Union is yet to note Cuomo’s BS and attempts at crayfishing the statement.
However, you will be happy to know that Christie’s problems are being covered in depth.
There have been two Knockout Assault Deaths (murders) in Syracuse and at least one in Rochester and the PO0PO has ignored them also. Suspects known.
The Amsterdam News and the Gay City News provide a more balanced coverage than does the Albany PO0PO, at least attacks are reported.

Thanks for posting this thread.

I try to keep up with what the enemy is doing, and today was a bonanza on PMSNBC’s “Socialist Joe’s Show.”

One of the parts of his show that tickled me was Micromush’s ex-head Bill Gates glaring dependence on “Education.”

Everything that Billy G. talked about concerned behavior control of a “poor” population by funding “Education.”

Without “Aid to Education,” the Left has no real power to shape the future voter’s values!

Another point I picked up on followed the Obamacrat Speech by multi-millionaire De Rosa from Connecticut on the evils of “Income Inequality.”

Although De Rosa read her Valerie Garret typed speech well, the part that I thought interesting was Joe’s comment afterward: “ - - - There should at least be a 30 % minimum income tax in America! - - - “

_______________

HEY! Socialist Joe! Yeah, YOU!

The problem is INCOME TAX INEQUALITY, not “Income Inequality!”

The problem is that 47 % of working age adults pay NO personal Federal Income Tax.
