Creators Syndicate honcho whines about taxes, fails to note underlying causes

Creators Syndicate founder Rick Newcombe takes to the pages of the Wall Street Journal to offer "Why We'll Leave L.A./The business climate is worse than the air quality" (link). He's threatening to move his company to another city or state because L.A. reversed their decision on his company's tax classification:

Everything was fine until the city started running out of money in 2007. Suddenly, the city announced that it was going to ignore its own ruling and reclassify us in the higher tax category. Even more incredible is the fact that the new classification was to be imposed retroactively to 2004 with interest and penalties. No explanation was given for the new classification, or for the city's decision to ignore its 1994 ruling...

...As long as City Hall operates like a banana republic, why is anyone surprised that jobs have left the city in droves and Los Angeles is teetering on the brink of bankruptcy?

Of course, this fails to note a couple points. Businesses and people have been leaving Los Angeles for many years, due in good part to massive immigration, most of it illegal. And, that massive immigration has led to more spending, causing the City to look for additional sources of revenue. One of those is his company. And, that massive immigration has led to a great deal of political power for people such as Antonio Villaraigosa and others who push for more spending.

Newcombe might know this and agree but left it out for innocent reasons. However, others I'm not too sure of. They keep whining about taxes, but they completely fail to note the role massive immigration plays in giving more power to the far-left and in increasing spending. In some cases (such as Reason Magazine), that's because they support massive/illegal immigration and are being dishonest in order to avoid admitting just how flawed their policies are.


The political agenda of mexico city and its people are working well inside L.A. This is what will happen to the former USA, Can we say? ideologically no ideals but total third world BS ideals of NO freedom? can we say total hispanic dishonest political race ideals? of the third world? total ideals of the dictaor? the total down fall is coming and has started. The next move is the ideals of total extermintion of any who stand against the third world people are its leaders. "by the way", a people who do not have leaders and the will to take on evil doers is doomed like most Americans are doomed to be enslaved by others, a people and leaders who have the will, can always over come ten times its numbers.

American Workers can breath a sigh of relief, as for once our politicians are listening to us all? Well! Not quite? They have instituted E-Verify, the illegal worker extraction process from the workplace? BUT TELL ME WHY IT DOESN'T COVER EVERYBODY WHO COLLECTS A PAYROLL CHECK? Not just the new arrival workers, but everybody who works for the company? American citizens and legal residents, don't care about checking their identity, unless they have something to hide? But E-Verify will trap illegal trap people offering illegal Social Security Numbers and bogus ID papers. What's significant is that E-Verify is not in stasis, but being upgraded, modified all the time. All irregularities can be checked out at the Social Security office. Not a good place where illegal workers would enter. Almost every law on the books that includes 287(g) for local enforcement is always weakened or even snuffed out by political conspirators. Any activist knows whose behind annulling the 287(g) police questioning, arrest and detain of illegal aliens? Our lady at the Homeland Security office, Madam Janet Napolitano. She keeps opening her mouth and with a forked tongue, swears she adamantly supported E-Verify and other programs, while secretly she and her minions underfund working laws, just as she did when she was governor of Arizona? If it really is being made MANDATORY for all federal employees and contractors? What reason are they arguing that it shouldn't be MANDATORY in every business throughout America? Every patriotic employer should use the E-Verification process? Unfortunately it's still voluntary for the public sector, which I am sure has been strongly influenced by US Chamber of Commerce, ACLU, Cato Institute and Council of Foreign Relations. Please don't take my word for the ominous agendas of these organizations? Allow yourself to--GOOGLE-- the rancid truth by surfing the Internet about these outfits? These are all anti-sovereignty, pro-illegal--CHEAP LABOR ENTITIES. They refuse any restrictions of any--REAL BORDER ENFORCEMENT? The next step is to push our SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN to implement rigid INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT. An army of E-Verify federal inspectors to make unannounced visits to Human Resources, stores, factories, industry, businesses with a general warrant to audit books around the country. This would certainly be a parasite employers nightmare and hold their feet to the proverbial fire. Those who consider hiring illegal cheap labor will instantly condemn themselves to heavy fine, confiscation of business asset and even a prison term if caught with the undocumented labor. Always the ACLU, the subversive La Raza (THE RACE) is up front with filing lawsuits, against any town that considers ordinances to stop illegal immigrants from settling there. These are--ALL OPEN BORDER ZEALOTS--Brought and paid for by corporate money. If we didn't have sincere patriotic Senators like Sessions, E-Verify would have been tabled and hidden away fro

come on people have fun in the last days of the former USA.

Funniest of all is Newcombe expected some sort of response from the city and mayor, boy is he out to lunch, they want to you to leave the city. What part of "leave or we tax you to death" do you not understand?

Smitty, people will understand tax to death soon.
