Sparky and his Ilk
I am not really knocking Lightning. It is his Senators that I’d like to see deported. The new Republican one is bad enough with a mind on being part of the nanny government. But, he pales in comparison to Durbin. The guy is a joke. Sadly, he is a very powerful joke. And that ain’t funny.
What’s Danny Durbin up to now? Same old same old. He never seen a dollar in some citizen’s hand that he didn’t want to spend. He has never met a tax he didn’t like. He’s never seen an entitlement he wouldn’t support.
He’s going to introduce a new tax. He wants Internet businesses taxed. The first problem is there are more than 7500 taxing entities. That is a big hit at the cost of doing business. He also attacking job creation giants. According to a Google search, Amazon employees 13,900 people. He’s probably inspired by his home state. They instituted taxing on the Internet that has already moved Internet business across state line. That was a recent lead in their local news.
He is also the first up to the microphone to bemoan those rich bitches that are getting another unfair tax break. Now the fact is that the top ten percent of those earners pay ninety-five percent of the taxes now. Do they get unfair tax breaks? Darn right and many of those came with the support of Senator Durbin.
He is always on the local TV with another sound bite about another wondrous idea originating from his fertile mind. He is so fertile that he should be constrained in a man-size condom. Better yet; his father should have been given a box.
The only guy over there dumber is their Governor. You wouldn’t believe that guy so I better quit before I ask Lightning who he voted for — not that there was a reasonable choice.
Poker is all about probability. We are fairly sophisticated in evaluating it. It would be nice if politician played a bit of poker to understand it better.
