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.

I just learned the horrible news: Lord & Taylor is no more!

With all those professional (equal to personal, for me) turbulences I had no time nor interest in shopping –  and voila! I’m not just behind the times, I’m behind in “closing this store” bargains.

On the other hand, I’ve avoided the [semi-sweet] sorrow I experienced when shopping at Daffy’s during their last breathing days.

What a sad, sad world!

QotD

New York? I’ll tell you how New York is. New York has all the answers.[…]The city lives by slogans, isms, and fast sure answers. New York is saying to me right now: you, Jean Louise Finch, are not reacting according to our doctrines regarding your kind, therefore you do not exist. The best minds in the country have told us who you are. You cna’t escape it, and we don’t blame you for iy, but we do ask you to conduct yourself within the rules that those who know have laid down for your behavior, and don’t try to be anything else.

[..] I learned nothing from you except how to be suspicious. I didn’t know what hate was until I lived among you and saw you hating every day. […] I despise your quick answers, your slogans in the subways, and most of all I despise your lack of good manners: you’ll never have ’em as long as you exist.
