Power of Taxes

From my electric bill’s explanation of charges:

 

Trump-instigated tax relief balances off social-engineering tax imposed by NYS socialistic bureaucrats. Yay!

 

Last month’s debate at Soho Forum – where I periodically went to observe live libertarians in NYC, despite unreasonably expensive tickets and mediocre snacks provided by catering service of Japanese wife of the organizer – will be the last for me.

Last time I was forced to listen to this kind of anti-Semitic, anti-Israel drivel  was when I was leaving USSR – as a Jewish refugee – and it was precisely the reason I left.

Danny-boy, pictured above, in best imitation of Soviet TV anchors, same actor’s diction and modulations, and almost the same expressions, accused Israel of genocide (attempted, if not performed – his words); assured the audience that he is not an anti-semite  (short of declaring his best friends are Jews) – but he’s looking after interests of all Middle East, to save lives of American soldiers and in interest of fairness; his heart of a soldier breaks for poor abused palestinians who live without a hope for their own state – while un-democratic Israelis pronounce themselves shamelessly a national Jewish state. He said that Hamas now is not the same as it was 10yrs ago, and “we” (US) should be forcing Israel to make a peace with it. That rockets that fly to Israeli cities are 1st, harmless, 2nd, don’t come from palestinians, 3rd, come as reaction to aggressive Israeli oppression. That the fact that claiming a “right to return” are now 3 times more “palestinians” than were at the time they were kicked out of Israel land is explained not by fraud – but by “increased demographic birthrates, a tradition in the region”. That it is time to stop feeding Israel with American money and arms! – not  a word of how much we’ve bleed to Arafat and Co and whole unholy cabal of arab leaches.

So on, and on, and on.  My blood boils when I try to recall it all, for this post.

Leftist, anti-semitic, racist, base lies and libel.

His opponent was also a leftist – but a Jew. Lame, whining, apologetic. Said he “doesn’t condone Israeli expansion to settlements”and he’s opposed to Israel as a national state. Disgusting. He lost in the “debate”- and public ( mixed, with fair proportion of Arabs in attendance) rejoiced.

I am appalled.

Sent a request for refund for my VIP package of the 5 debates, explaining exactly why. We’ll see if I have to fight to get my money back.

To hell with NY libertarians, to hell with this “Oxford-style debate”, and to hell with its organizer – with a Jewish name.

 

Здравствуйте!

-сказали за дверью на моё “Who’s there?”

Наверное, новые соседи,- думаю.- Кооп недавно продал 2 квартиры, может быть, русским? И они хотят наводить контакты. С улицы же к нам не зайдёшь, там intercom и входная дверь на замке. Тем более забраться на 4й этаж.

Открываю.

Высокий, симпатичный, черноволосый господин;  за ним ещё один – постарше, с картофельным лицом.

-Здравствуйте! Я – Виталий, а это – Александр. Сегодня мы хотим задать вам важный вопрос…Скажите, вы знаете, для чего бог создал человека?!

Two faces of Indian medal

One – Kamala Harris, one of two daughters of an Tamil-Indian expat, a woman who came to Berkley at 19 and participated in student revolt of the 60’s. She married another protestor, a Jamaican-American student of economics; but left him later and raised her kids surrounded by her side of extended Indian family. She became a breast cancer researcher, but – in the words of her obituary in San Francisco Chronicle  –  “Her passion for science was augmented by a fervent commitment to social justice … leading to a lifelong fight against injustice, racial discrimination and intolerance. She instilled these values in her daughters, who in turn have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of justice and equality.” In other words, she was a SJW and  used the race card for advancement.

That’s a legacy Kamala has taken from her mother and carries as a flag in her Presidential campaign. SHe’s trying to out-populist the Great Populist himself, by resurrecting the stinking ghost of reparations to descendants of negro slaves. That positively enraged her father, who reminded Kamala of the family history – namely, that they are coming from the other side of plantation:

My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born.

Two: Nikki Haley

“Haley’s parents Ajit and Raj Randhawa moved to Bamberg in 1969 after living in India. Her father, Ajit Randhawa, had taken a biology professor post at nearby Voorhees College, an historically black college. Her mother worked as a school teacher before opening a clothing store “Exotica” in 1976. They replaced some of the ceiling tiles to create rows of red and blue tiles in the design of the American flag. They stapled 50 white glittery stars to the blue tiles. [..]

While in elementary school, Haley wanted to be a Pilgrim in a school play, but instead was tapped to play Pocahontas.“We weren’t dark enough to be black or pale enough to be white,” she wrote. She was bullied in third grade to the point where her dad talked with her teacher and her mom brought Indian snacks to school and answered her classmates’ questions about India. “I still feel like that kid in survival mode who has to focus on bringing people together … and how we’re more similar than different,” Haley said.”

“Bringing people together” – vs. stereotypical SJW. Same life experience, opposite conclusions, opposite results.
