In an effort to toughen enforcement of immigration laws
across the country, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has threatened to withhold or revoke law enforcement
funding from states and cities that block the police or sheriffs from informing federal authorities about illegal invaders
in their custody. Of course, only a raging Communist or a reactionary libtard would oppose the proposed policy. Because of
the fact that these invaders can, and often do, cross state lines, the matter is legally and clearly a Federal issue.
Big City Communist Mayors like
DeBlasio (New York) and Emmanuel (Chicago) would rather protect violent gang members than
their own citizens.
But our rebuttal today will focus not upon the threatened cut-off of funding, but rather,
a broader principle which is never discussed nor questioned -- namely, this bizarre business which involves the Federal collection
of taxes from we-the-people, who all live in one of the fifty States, and the Federal kickback of
some of these very same tax dollars back to those
very same States which we-the-people live in. Why take our money in the first place?!
Parallel to this fiscal insanity
are the State-level kickbacks to various towns and municipalities which occur after the people of said town and municipalities have been taxed by the State. Consider the folly at work here: We pay income,
excise, corporate and gas taxes to the Feds, as well as income taxes and sales taxes to our particular State, topped off by
property taxes (for renters it is embedded) to the city or town. The Feds piss a fraction of those dollars back to
the grateful States and cities. The State also trickles a fraction of their own revenues back to the grateful localities.
Again, why collect that money in the first place?
Such idiotic transfers, based
on the erroneous principle that bureaucrats know best, can only create inefficiencies and waste of taxpayer dollars. The comical
circle-jerk scam exists only because Boobus Americanus has fully bought into the illusion that funds which flow down
from higher sources (State and then Federal) are like "manna from heaven" -- doled out by other-wordly
fairies at no cost to them. Few at the local level are able to realize that the government teat they are sucking on is only
pumping out milk that was stolen from their own cows! Such is the downright ignorant state of economic illiteracy in America
to State and towns, and additional State grants to towns do not come from heaven. The idiotic 3-way-circle-jerk only sucks
A perfect illustration of this fiscal fraudulence -- one that
the New Jersey-based
Sugar and I, er, "The Editorial Board" of The Anti-New York Times
can personally relate to -- is the "Middle Class Property Tax Relief" program of New Jersey. Sold
to over-taxed suburbanites as a way to reduce property taxes (2/3 of
which go towards "education") the State's annual checks paid out to the cities and towns of New Jersey now
consume about 85% of "Joisey's" total revenue collected from State income taxes. So, not only is Boobus Jerseyus getting dinged each pay period for New Jersey income taxes (which did
not even exist until 1976), but since the idiotic scheme's introduction sometime during the 1980's, property/school taxes
have skyrocketed anyway!
And, not only are the "property owners" of the People's Republic of New Jersey are on
the hook for the local extortion, and not only is there a State income tax of 5.5% - 9% depending on income; and a State Sales
Tax of just under 7%; but Crispy Creme Christie, in 2016, signed a whopping $0.23 per
gallon gasoline tax into law in order to cover the State's budget shortfall -- a large portion of which is due
to that expensive "Middle Class Property Tax Relief" that we
are told is oh-so-indispensable. How ironically insane it is that we now need "relief" from the crushing burden
of "tax relief!" And woe to any politician who tries to cut off the Marxist "manna from heaven." For he
will be falsely accused and politically damaged for wanting to "cut education" (which currently costs $20,000 per pupil here in New Jersey! (here)) and of "starving the poor."
"I brought home a zillion dollars back
to our State (or District)," brags your typical US Senator or Congressman during election season. "Yay,
we love you." cheer the boobs -- never thinking to ask how much money he had to vote to send to other states
and districts in order to get his share. You see, the circle jerk isn't just vertical. It also works horizontally among the
435 Congressmen and 100 Senators from all across America.
Dear Lord, guard our sanity from the maddening effects if this mass
insanity that our wicked world is so steeped in. We close with a fitting quote from
19th Century poet and critic, James Russell Lowell.

2- Communist teachers and their sympathetic dupes raged at NJ Governor Christie over his tiny
and temporary symbolic "cut" on "education funding" checks to municipalities for "local tax relief."
1: I read in the New York Times today that Trump is threatening to cut off sanctuary cities like New York
from receiving grant money.
2: What a jerk! Our police and children need that money.
Sugar: Hey Boobuss! Let me draft $25 out of your bank account each week and I'll give your sstupid kid a generouss grant of $100 at the end of the year.
Hmmmm. You just gave me an idea for a fundraiser.
