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.

Cuomo fan? Scarborough tells rich who harbor money abroad “you’re not welcome in USA: leave!” Ping to Today show list.
Are they doing something illegal?
They are like hobos who pay their own way.
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...
"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).
This jerk needs the irs up his arse about 25 miles.
Remember that the next time Joe claims to be from the redneck riviera. Phone POS.
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
So should Bill Gates leave?

Sean Hannity to Leave New York After Andrew Cuomo’s Anti-Conservative Rant
The current company that assumed the Obamacare Web Site this month (Formerly Arthur Andersen co.)may be based in Chicago (Where else?) but is incorporated in Ireland. Most of it’s IT work is outsourced to India.
Glenn Becks Open Letter to Gov. Cuomo: Are We Welcome in New York?
Jan. 20, 2014 3:21pm
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.
Read all at:
That would probably include most polititians, being the rich bunch that THEY are...
Maybe it’s not such a bad idea... hmmmmm...
Who the hell are these people to tell anyone who is or isn’t welcome in the United States of America?
And people who kill interns aren’t welcome neither.
Typical liberal. Dismissive, indignant, intolerant and self-righteous. They all have a superiority complex and feel entitled to tell everyone else how to live.
“Death to Kulaks!”
I wonder if Scarborough thought that Lori Klausutis was taking advantage of too many tax loopholes.
Strange, Joe and I are in sort of an agreement.
Illegal aliens that get paid and send their money “home” to their family in other countries do need to leave.
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.
Excellent post. Universitys like Harvard, Yale, etc. and many liberal foundations have hundreds of billions. Why are they excused from sharing their wealth with the poor?
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.
Don’t make them leave, just tax the exported money at 50%.
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.
See for yourself:
Treasury Department Form 90-22.1
Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FACTA)
IRS Form 8938:
Failure to report all your non-US accounts: $10,000 fine.
Yes, by all means take your investment capital and jobs creation and go to some other country.
What an asshat Joe-Blow is!
A few years ago we spent a lot of money on a weekend in Times Square. I will never go there again.
Conservatives should BOYCOTT the state of New York!

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 dont 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. Were 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. Thats 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.
They will leave. They will. Have no fear.
I wonder what he would say if he found out Obama was doing it.
Peple who do that are despicable!
They should shield it here in the USA like democrats and RINOs do.
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.
Don’t do any serious banking in the USA. \\
Money here is subject to lightening asset seizure without trial and subject to lawsuits.
Nazi Germany said the same thing about the Jews till they started rounding them up.
Duh, isn’t there a plaque on stature or something that invites to New York “ - - - the huddled masses? “
- - - - I don’t recall if that plaque mentioned anything about guns or the other toxic subjects Gov. C. finds repulsive - - - .
I’m sure it is on that plaque somewhere as a future Democrat President of the United States of America would never tell a lie.
Its these Globalist Corporations that fund the Left and advocate for higher taxes and more regulations on the rest of us.
Scarborough should take his own advice and leave. The guy is as useless as breast implants on a boar.
Only a fool would keep the bulk,of his fortune in the US, under the current level of risk. I’m betting Scarborough is no,fool, He’s a liar, just like the rest of them.
Yes indeed. Wasn’t he the one who had a dead intern show up in his office? I’ve always wondered about that. Strange indeed.
The “get out” mantra is going to become more common now... it’ll be seen as a left-populist pitch.
If I were among those “rich” who had million$ parked offshore, I’d probably think seriously of jumping off this sinking ship.
You beat me to it!
One thing you can count on is that ‘Progressives’ never progress. They still keep that same ol’ mentality that has bankrupted this country.
‘Ball of Confusion’ - Temptations 1970
“Politicians say more taxes will solve everything...
And the Band played on...”
Capital will seek the most hospitable conditions every time.
Tell Joe all they are ddoing is trying to keep the US from stealing it all and redistributing it to all the illegal aliens.
