We Ask Just One Thing: Leave Your Blues Behind

Post by psk836 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 8:12 am

As the mass migration due to high taxes, high costs, misuse of tax revenue, and soft on crime policies from blue cities and states to red, we red staters ask just one thing. Please leave your blue mentality behind. Understand why you left, and understand what attracted you here.

"In 2007, Chicago's budget had a $94 million deficit. By the time current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took office in 2011, after years of steadily rising structural deficits and a crippling recession, the city was facing a $650 million annual budget gap, not to mention billions upon billions of dollars in unfunded public pension liabilities.

Emanuel's solution has been to try and nickel-and-dime his way out of these massive budget gaps. The Emanuel administration has jacked up the costs on just about every minor tax, fine, and permit on the city's books: cigarette taxes, restaurant permits, valet and loading zone fees for businesses, cable television fees, mandatory vehicle stickers, towing fees, water and sewage, garbage collection, garage parking, even a fine for allowing weeds in one's yard to grow too tall. His most recent budget proposal increases taxes for Uber and Lyft rides, monthly telephone bills, and big-draw sports and music events.

At the same time, the city began aggressively pursuing debtors. "Moving forward there will be no more free rides, debt scofflaws will be found and they will pay what they owe the City," Emanuel announced in 2011 when unveiling his first city budget."

Sure thing: just as soon as we blue state providers can cut off the red state takers we've been keeping afloat for a century and a half.

The civil war ended a century before I was born. Try again, loser.

My own opinion has been often stated: let every damn Confederate state go off on its own if they want, plus any other contiguous state crazy enough to join them.

If the crazy went far enough,some trades might need to be made: for instance, Alaska vs. Colorado/New Mexico. Or a corridor cutting Indiana off from Lake Michigan, linking the blue states of the Northeast with those of the Midwest.

All I ask is that we just let Ohio go wherever they want as long as they don't stay with us. Some real weirdos in that state.
