Here are two print ads, from the same company, GAP. One is being challenged as racist. Can you guess which?
I would like to see David Cameron resign from leader of the Conservative Party but NOT for the risible reasons being trotted out by the left this morning.
The essence of THEIR argument is that because Cameron received shares from his father, in his father’s company, and then sold these shares and paid all due tax at UK rates, this is a …gasp..resignation matter.
Yup, that’s how PATHETIC the Left are and they are in full moonbat howling mode about this at the moment. I was on LBC this morning to discuss this and made the gentle point that since NO laws were broken and since ALL tax laws were observed, there is no story here….beyond the delay in Cameron telling us about what he done in…2010 – BEFORE ever becoming PM.
If Labour want to have an investigation, let them have one into Tony Blair. In 2012, he paid £315,000 on income of £12m. That’s a 2% nett tax rate – pretty good if you can get away with it, right?
But here’s why I think Cameron should resign. Yesterday, he casually announced that he was going to spend £9.3m of OUR TAXES pushing his pro EU propaganda. Big deal, you may say, he’s Prime Minister and can do what he wants. However the Electoral Commission – the body charged with ensuring all votes are conducted properly, has stated that they think this cash grab is entirely inappropriate. The response from Cameron and his acolytes is to say they “note’ what the Commission says but that they will ignore it. ANYTHING to keep the UK captive. And THAT, dear reader, is why he should go.
That is what was pledged for our Liberty. This was pledged in Public before the People. Three Percent of the population Lead and Inspired 13 fledgling Colonies to ACCEPT Bonding Together and going to War with what was the most Powerful Nation in the World at the Time. They Won and took Ten Years to workout the Rules of Law that we were going to Live by to Ensure that Each Man would be in control of his OWN Life, Destiny, and Prosperity.
That Freedom was yours to Win or Fail, no one else can control it. Some did fail, Some got Comfortable, and Some got very Rich. Each got what he earned and we became the Richest, most Powerful Nation on the Earth. For the past 100yrs the Bolsheviks have incrementally undermined that Freedom and Liberty. The result is $19,250,000,000,000 of Debt and over a third of the Nation on Government Assistance.
It has long passed the Time to put an end to this nonsense. We are engaged in a process right now of deciding whether we continue down the path of Ruin or choose another Direction. The continued Path of Ruin is represented by Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. The Alternative options are a Successful Business Man, and a Constitutional Lawyer. There are segments of our population that fear each of these choices.
Sanders is a Socialist True and Red to the Bone. Nowhere in the History of Mankind have the Policies that he promotes lead to anything but Pain, Suffering, and Death on a Massive scale. Hillary Clinton is a Felon not yet convicted. She has spent her Entire Adult Life being paid by the Tax Payer and has amassed a Fortune of Hundreds of Millions of Dollars. Any politician that went into Government Poor or Middle Class that acquires a massive Fortune can ONLY have done so through corruption, whatever side of the aisle they sit on.
In her case she has passed what anyone can call corrupt and moved onto the category reserved for those consumed by power, hubristic pride, greed, lust, malicious envy, gluttony, wrath and indignant entitlement. Those who wrote our Laws did so to Protect from people EXACTLY of her Character. Power Corrupts. It is the nature of Man. To prevent those we entrust with power we demand that they must give up their Privacy. You are a SERVANT of the People. All your communications are monitored. It is the Law. Except Mrs. Clinton believes those Laws do not apply to Her.
Donald Trump is a Successful Business Man. If you doubt that or underestimate that then you are a Fool. At a whim he has seized control of the attention of an Entire Nation and is close to being picked as 1 of 2 out of over 300 million to run for President. To underestimate a man that has never held Public Office being able to achieve what he has so far is a sign of your own intellectual failing. Trump, however is a member of the L.C.R. Club. Lewd, Crude, and Rude Club. He has no filter on his mouth but gets away with it because he delivers, and does so flamboyantly.
Will he damage the Country further or help bring it back up from the precipice it has ridden over ? No one knows. What is frightening about the man is his lack of understanding of the Laws and History of our Nation. If he loses the election for the nomination, this will be why. There are 56 States and Territories that Elect Delegates. There are 56 Different Sets of Rules under which those Delegates are elected. In my own State, The Majority of Republican Delegates are what are called Delegates of Conscience. Meaning they are Free to Cast their Vote any way their Conscience tells them.
Ted Cruz is a Constitutional Lawyer that has argued and won cases Against the Government in the Supreme Court. He had every word of the Constitution Memorized by the time he was 11. He is a man of Faith both in God and his fellow Countryman. His integrity is unquestionable. He was elected to office under the Promise to Stop Obamacare and Obama’s ILLEGAL Amnesty given to those who have broken into our House. He has represented those positions his entire time in office. He has been attacked and ostracized by his own Party for doing so. When Mitch McConnell needed his vote he Lied to the Senator, upon discovery of the Lie he didn’t scheme for revenge. He went to the well of the Senate and Publicly held the Head of his Party up to public ridicule calling him the Liar that he is.
These are our Choices.
Sorry to report that Country legend Merle Haggard has died, aged 79. He hadn’t been well for some time.
Here’s a cover of one of one of his biggest hits ….
Some students never grow up. Seen this?
“A university student was threatened with being thrown out of a meeting after being accused of violating “safe space” rules – by raising her hand.
Imogen Wilson, the vice-president for academic affairs at Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA), spoke out against safe space rules becoming “a tool for the hard left to use when they disagree with people” following the incident last week. Ms Wilson, 22, was subject to a “safe space complaint” over her supposedly “inappropriate hand gestures” during a student council meeting.”
Isn’t it amazing? These little immature snowflakes censuring someone for “violating their safe space” by..raising her hand. Incredible. They may be at University but they are uneducated.
As the weeks tick by to the date of the UK referendum on continued EU membership, the establishment becomes more blatant in its frenzy to keep us IN the EU.
“Taxpayers’ money is to be spent sending a leaflet to every home in the country warning that the British economy would be damaged by a “Brexit”. David Cameron’s Government is to spend £9million sending a leaflet to every family in the country warning them that leaving the European Union would cause an “economic shock” and increase the prices of household goods. It is a repeat of the pamphlet issued to every British household by Harold Wilson ahead of the 1975 referendum setting out an “independent” government analysis of his renegotiation, alongside the pro- and anti- campaign literature.
Wilson lied to us back then. We were ASSURED it was a Common Market we were being asked to join, NOT a political union that transferred sovereignty to Brussels.
We are being lied to now and, infuriatingly, being made to pay for it. It’s our taxes that are being deployed against us, to deceive us and keep us captive in the EU.
Asad Shah was an Ahmadi muslim shopkeeper in Glasgow. (From what I read the Ahmadis are a “not completely mental” sect.) He was murdered outside his shop last week. Another muslim, Tanveer Ahmed, is accused of driving up from Bradford to kill him.
The accused has now released a statement, claiming that he murdered Shah for religious reasons.
Citizens are reminded that this has nothing to do with Islam.
Yesterday, the voters of Wisconsin gave a hard slap to the heavy favorites for the Democratic and Republican nominations.
I don’t think that the minds and hearts of most Democrats are in the least bit enthusiastic at the prospect of a candidate or president Hillary Clinton. A higher percentage of Republicans are very troubled at the idea of Trump representing them, or, God help us, their country.
The prospect of no outright winner is very real on the Republican side of the house. Trump fails every possible character test, and has been exposed, repeatedly, as one who hasn’t thought through most major issues. Cruz is a nasty, friendless bomb-thrower, a wolf who puts on his ” just plain folks ” coat when out in the precincts.
No outright Republican winner means a hugely divisive party convention in Cleveland, where all likely outcomes are bad for Republicans and the many, conflicted subcultures that make up today’s Republican Party
Hillary remains the heavy favorite to win the Democratic nomination, since the DNC rules heavily favor insiders. But the flawed, honest, Sanders continues to rip her hide with each additional state that he wins. She will take the nomination limping, exposed, with few enthusiastic supporters.
The country is in great need of a centrist, problem solving, coalition builder. One that unites, and who respects the person who holds a different opinion. There is nobody like this on the stage now, no sunny FDRs or Reagans anywhere , unless you count Kasich.
If ” none of the above “ were an option, that’s who most people that I know would vote for.
The Panama Papers business has unleashed a torrent of bullshit, much of it the dribbling nonsense that it’s somehow immoral to indulge in the noble art of tax minimisation. On the contrary, the great and moral task is to deny the tax monster as many of our pennies as we possibly can. Alright, that goes a touch further than John McTernan, but even that Labour man understands the dribbling nonsense out there –
Tax avoidance is an expression of basic British freedoms. You may not like the principles set out by Lord Tomlin in the Inland Revenue’s case against the Duke of Westminster, but they are as fundamental as Magna Carta, and a good deal more useful to most of us (my italics):
“Every man is entitled, if he can, to arrange his affairs so that the tax attaching under the appropriate Acts is less than it otherwise would be. If he succeeds in ordering them so as to serve that result, then, however unappreciative the Commissioners of Inland Revenue or his fellow taxpayers may be of his ingenuity, he cannot be compelled to pay an increased tax.”
