Car-tax detour confronts gov.-elect – Arnold is discovering the double standard of

taxation. It is very easy for our rulers to raise taxes; yet it’s much more difficult to lower them. This is by no means an accidental arrangement by our rulers.

The Deficit’s Falling – Another example of why I’ve always said that projected Federal budget figures are nothing more than WAGs (wild ass guesses) and not to be trusted as anywhere close to accurate predictions of reality. Anyone who cites these numbers as legitimate is either an idiot, a liar, or both.

Fighting Back In Ohio

Posted by taxguru on October 16, 2003

One of my underlying beliefs has always been that just complaining about things isn’t as productive as doing something about them. Everyone likes to complain about taxes, but few want to make the effort to do something about keeping the lid on them. This is why I have always made a strong point about taxes being the symptoms of other problems, namely irresponsible people in positions of high power in our various levels of government. People who claim that discussions of politics have no place in tax news are too short sighted to themselves be trusted for any real tax advice.

In this spirit, I do feel good when I hear news of people fighting back against the ruling elite who have no qualms about shoving ever higher tax bills down the throats of their subjects. Some Ohio taxpayers have reached their breaking point when their RINO governor broke a promise to not raise taxes without a vote and unilaterally increased the state sales tax by 20%. The anti tax forces have an ally in high places, Ohio’s Secretary of State, Ken Blackwell, who the Wall Street Journal refers to as Arnold of Ohio
