IOS: iOS 11’s Most Obnoxious Features

Friday, September 29, 2017

Image credit: iOS 11 brings a lot of new and exciting features to the iPhone and iPad. It also brings a lot of pretty annoying ones. Like most new operating systems, iOS 11 has had a few hiccups during its first full week out on the town, including a bug that made it impossible for Microsoft Exchange users to send or receive emails using their iPhones.

And, they have screwed up the PODCAST feature that played all the “unplayed” podcasts.

POLITICAL: How to get politics out of taxation or Gooferment “theft”

Friday, September 29, 2017

2017-Oct-06

FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL “The 10-Point”

*** begin quote ***

Responding to yesterday’s question on the GOP tax proposals, Bob Jones of New Jersey said: “Let’s stop using the tax code to encourage certain behaviors. Get rid of all tax deductions and preferences. That means the same rate for corporate income, personal income and capital gains, and no deductions for anything, including charitable contributions, mortgage interest or solar panels. Then set the rate to balance the budget, and they’re done. Simple.” Jim Miner of Michigan commented: “Unemployment is low, inflation is low and growth is now steady and sustainable instead of the boom-and-bust cycles of the past. Exactly what problem is this tax cut supposed to fix?” And Mark Pankin of Virginia asked: “The logic behind doing away with the deduction for state and local taxes is that taxpayers in low-tax states should not subsidize those in high-tax states. Shouldn’t the same logic apply to the mortgage interest deduction? Why should taxpayers without mortgages subsidize those who have them?”

As a little L libertarian, I believe that “taxes are theft”. Pure and simple.

In order to get to a truly free market economy I liked Bob Jones of New Jersey idea. Same rate and just balance the budget. 

Then we can move the fight to reducing the size and scope of Gooferment.

SECESSION: Support for Secession?

New Poll on Americans’ Support for Secession
By Kirkpatrick Sale September 20, 2017

*** begin quote ***

In the final analysis, this is a global issue that has gained traction in the last few years. From Scotland and Catalan, to Venice, France, the UK, and now loud calls can even be heard in California and Texas. The ghosts of Lincoln, (“I must save the Union”) and Jefferson (“A rebellion is necessary every generation”) appear to be roaming the American landscape as a sizeable portion of the public are sympathetic to the cause of Independence from D.C.

*** end quote ***

One can only hope!

Clearly the “coastal” states violently disagree with the “heartland” states. Like the War of Northern Aggression, why can’t States leave.

Federalism has been destroyed by the all-powerful Federal Gooferment. The repeal of the Seventeenth Amendment was the nail in the coffin for States to prevent unfunded liabilities.

Just like the Federal Reserve gives the Feds an unlimited “checkbook”, the States have no power to frustrate the loss of their inherent Constitutional power.

Argh!
