Ex-Marlins President Brags About Fleecing Fans, Taxpayers in $1.2 Billion Team Sale

At this point, every single person who worked for the Miami Marlins when Jeffrey Loria owned the team should be under strict FBI surveillance. Robert Mueller should be stalking these people. They keep revealing themselves to be vampires.

Case in point: Loria’s former team president, David Samson, hopped onto a stage at ESPN personality Dan Le Batard’s birthday party over the weekend and bragged about fleecing Miami taxpayers and sports fans after Loria sold the team for literally a billion dollars. Samson then flipped off the crowd. Had there not been security, he might have been guillotined, though Le Batard and Samson now claim that this was some sort of planned “skit.” If true, the skit sucked.

When will “We, The Sheeple” realize that the politicians and bureaucrats do NOT have the Taxpayers’ best interests at heart.

Surely, there must be some way to “claw back” these ill-gotten Crony Capitalist “gains”.

Argh!

MONEY: “Public” pensions should be under scrutiny by both taxpayers and potential recipients

Great article out of Zero Hedge today covering the current pension crisis in America. If you’ve listened to this show for any length of time, you know the public pension system is wrecked. But this article really went into detail about how it all might shape out in the end. Let’s just say it’s not a rosy picture. Like Mauldin says, “There are no good choices anymore.”

*** end quote ***

An excellent point that BOTH taxpayers and those future “public” pension recipients should be very skeptical and demanding that the politicians and bureaucrats be accountable.

Political promises are worth the paper that they are printed on. (Hint: It’s all oral.)

Forewarned is fore armed.

POLITICAL: Taxation Is Theft

Taxation Is Theft
by Andrew P. Napolitano

*** begin quote *** 

With a tax code that exceeds 72,000 pages in length and consumes more than six billion person hours per year to determine taxpayers’ taxable income, with an IRS that has become a feared law unto itself, and with a government that continues to extract more wealth from every taxpaying American every year, is it any wonder that April 15th is a day of dread in America? Social Security taxes and income taxes have dogged us all since their institution during the last century, and few politicians have been willing to address these ploys for what they are: theft.

*** end quote ***

This is a Libertarian mantra!

“Taxation Is Theft”

Coke versus Pepsi. McD’s versus Burger King. HomeDepot versus Lowes.

I get a choice.

With Gooferment, no choice. I have to pay for everything — even if it’s morally reprehensible, even if I don’t want it, even if I can’t use it.

Why? Because some number of Sheeple, politicians, or bureaucrats decide what’s good for me.

Wrong!

I may make bad choices, but they are MY choices!

Argh!

MONEY: This economy, and lack of political fiscal discipline, is hardest on the poor

Why is Wal-Mart worried? Payroll tax could cut consumer spending. (+video)
Recent reports forecast lower spending for this year, anticipating that the restored payroll tax will impact consumers’ wallets, especially low-income earners. Wal-Mart is adjusting its strategy.

“It’s a big deal,” says Morgan Housley, a macroeconomic analyst with Motley Fool, an online financial education website. “The biggest impact is on lower-income households since the payroll tax is regressive, only applying to the first $113,000 of income. Wealthier households don’t feel the same pinch because the tax doesn’t hit all of their income. Lower-income households also spend a larger share of their income than wealthier consumers.… Low-income families are in one of the toughest spots they’ve been in since 2009.”

Anyone believe a less that 2% cpi?

Not me!
