The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

The mayor of Philadelphia proves why liberals should never be in charge of finance, economics, or anything to do with money

For years liberal politicians have used the offer of free stuff to try to entice the voting public into believing that money simply grows on trees and that the laws of economics don't matter if the right party is in office.  Case in point, the fact that Bernie Sanders ran for the Presidency on a platform of free education, free healthcare, and a myriad of other free welfare programs that would have doubled the national debt from $19.5 trillion to right around $40 trillion.

Presidential contender Bernie Sanders' broadly progressive tax and spending proposals would add a whopping $21 trillion to the national debt over the next decade, according to a joint analysis released Monday. 
Sanders' proposals would cost $33.3 trillion in new spending, mostly from his health-care proposals — more than double the $15.3 trillion in new taxes, mostly on wealthier American households, that he proposes if he's elected president, according to the analysis by the Tax Policy Center. - CNBC
Of course, socialists, liberals, and Marxists like Sanders fail to ever look at the long history of nations who implemented their own versions of this, and the graveyard of failed economies that resulted from it.

Their solution?  More of the same, only on a much greater scale.

But liberal economics isn't relegated to just 'taxing the rich'.  And whether it involves trying to bankrupt individuals and economies through moronic schemes such as carbon credits, they have never learned that when governments get involved in an economy, there are consequences that emerge that they never plan for.

Such as in the city of Philadelphia, where the Mayor's push to 'fight obesity' through a beverage tax has now resulted in a massive decrease in tax revenues, and the onset of layoffs in industries that sell soda and other drinks with a modicum of sugar.

According to Philly.com reports, two months into the city’s sweetened-beverage tax, supermarkets and distributors are reporting a 30% to 50% drop in beverage sales and - adding insult to injury - are now planning for layoffs. 
One of the city's largest distributors told the Philadelphia website it would cut 20% of its workforce in March, and an owner of six ShopRite stores in Philadelphia says he expects to shed 300 workers this spring. “People are seeing sales decline larger than anything they’ve seen up to this point in the city,” said Alex Baloga, vice president of external relations at the Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association. 
Since all of this is taking place as previewed in a recent post: "The 'Soda Police' Just Learned A Valuable Lesson About Taxes", we doubt it would come as a surprise to anyone, although we are confident that Philadelphia city workers will be amazed by these unexpected developments. 
Sure enough, in response instead of admitting the tax was a bad decision, the city lashed out by launching the latest "fake news" campaign, when it questioned the legitimacy of the early figures and predicted that customers responding to the initial sticker shock by shopping outside the city would return. “We have no way of knowing if their sales figures and predicted job losses are anything more than fear-mongering to prevent this from happening in other cities,” said city spokesman Mike Dunn.
Mayor Kenney harshly rebuked reports of coming layoffs late Tuesday night. 
"I didn't think it was possible for the soda industry to be any greedier," Kenney said in an emailed statement. “…They are so committed to stopping this tax from spreading to other cities, that they are not only passing the tax they should be paying onto their customer, they are actually willing to threaten working men and women's jobs rather than marginally reduce their seven figure bonuses." 
Bob Brockway, chief operating officer of Canada Dry Delaware Valley, which distributes about 20 percent of the city’s soft drinks, said sales were down 45 percent in Philadelphia. The company will lay off 20 percent of its workforce the first week in March. The distributor is a subsidiary of Honickman Affiliates, owned by Harold Honickman, who helped lead the opposition to the tax last summer. The 35 jobs on the line include managers, sales people, and drivers, Brockway said. Sales are up about 20 percent in the suburbs, but that hasn’t helped the business break even, he said. - Zerohedge
The bottom line.  Taxing a product or service to push a political or social agenda simply means people will either quit using it, create a black market for it, or go someplace where there isn't a tax on it.  And all one has to do is look at when states began to tax cigarettes and realize that online sales, and sales of smokes from Indian reservations, would easily defeat the best intentions of liberal economics.

Daily show interview at the DNC shows just how far liberal hate and intolerance goes

For the most part, the Daily Economist tries to stick to primarily economic, financial, and monetary topics.  But the sad truth of today's society is, politics is now entrenched in every portion of our lives.  From the bedrooms, to what we eat, to what we are allowed to think.

On Sept. 5, Jon Stewart and the Daily Show completely obliterated once and for all the myth that liberals and the Democratic party is the 'big tent' of inclusion, and that hate really starts in the people who claim the affiliation, and not by those who simply have a different viewpoint on the matters of the world.

Most Americans would like to just live out their lives, enjoying the fruits of their labor, and finding the foundational desires of freedom of religion, speech, and the ability to succeed without government or activists mandating how you should do so.

Unfortunately, there are those who see tolerance as you being forced to accept their standards and viewpoints, and tolerance and compromise is in reality capitulation.  Where Christians find the action to be intolerable, liberals find the person themselves to be the problem, and thus hate and intolerance is more personal, than a topic open for discussion.

Welcome to the new America, as seen through the eyes of those who want to force not only their desires and viewpoints onto the majority, but with the agenda of destroying any alternative to their brave new world of hate.

Escape from California (Before it's too late)

The once breathtaking and economic marvel known as the state of California, which boasted the 8th largest GDP in the world, has become a cesspool of liberal ideologies, anti-business sentiment, and a psychopathic montage of finding new ways to screw their citizens.



In a breakdown of the decline of the state of California, the End of the American Dream broke down 16 different areas where Californians are running out of time to either escape from the coming disaster, or be consumed by it.

We will post just a few of the reasons here.



#2 California Is A Horrible Place To Do Business

For seven years in a row, CEOs ranked California as the worst place in the United States to do business. Thousands of good companies have left the state in recent years, and yet California lawmakers continue to pile on more rules, regulations and taxes.

#5 Desperate Municipalities Are Severely Slashing Government Services All Over The State
When you have no more money, you have to start cutting somewhere. In many cities in California, government services are being curtailed dramatically. Just check out what is going on in Costa Mesa....

Costa Mesa, a city of 110,000 south of Los Angeles, has slashed its payroll from 611 to 450. It is selling its police helicopters and has hired a neighboring city for air patrols. It's also pursuing a controversial effort to convert to a charter city from a general law city, which would give City Hall more power to outsource more work, said councilman Jim Righeimer.

 #7 California Has Some Of The Highest Tax Rates In The Nation
The last thing many California taxpayers want to hear is that taxes might be raised again. Californians already get absolutely hammered by taxes. California has one of the highest state income tax rates in the nation, one of the highest sales tax rates in the nation and the highest gasoline tax rate in the nation.

Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before the politicians come around for even more.

#8 Poverty Is Absolutely Exploding In California
Once upon a time, California was viewed as a land of great opportunity.

Now it is a land of crushing poverty in many areas.

Sadly, the number of children living in poverty in the state of California has increased by a staggering 30 percent since 2007.

In addition, 60 percent of all students attending California public schools now qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches.

#11 California Has Some Of The Worst Schools In The Nation
Many families are moving away from California because the public schools are absolutely nightmarish. The truth is that California has some of the worst schools in the entire nation. In the late 70s, California was number one in per-pupil spending on education, but now the state has fallen to 48th place.

#14 California Has One Of The Worst Health Care Systems In America
All over California, hospitals are shutting down. A big reason for this is because of the massive numbers of poor people and illegal aliens that are taking advantage of "free" medical care at hospital emergency rooms. A number of good hospitals have been forced to shut down in recent years and now the state of California ranks dead last out of all 50 states in the number of emergency rooms per million people.

When corrupt and liberal politicians are allowed to run wild over a city and state government, the results are inevitable.  Detroit, New Orleans, Cleveland, and now, the entire state of California.

Tax rich liberals... in fact, they WANT you too!

Michael Savage poignantly said that liberalism is a mental disorder, and judging by the statemens of two rich liberal supporters of President Obama, by gods he is right!

"Would you please raise my taxes?"

Oh, liberals gushed when a rich audience member asked Obama that question today. It seems relevant to point out that this rich liberal is Doug Edwards from the Obama-friendly and regulation-friendly Google.
Edwards has given $300,000 to politicians since 2000 -- every single dime to Democrats. He specifically said he wanted his higher taxes to cover Pell Grants.

That's about 60 Pell Grants he could have provided. - Timothy Carney, Washington Examiner


I dont know about you ladies and gentlemen, but I say BULLY!  Lets tax rich liberals!  Not only do people like Warren Buffet and Doug Edwards advocate it, they are volunteering!
