Obama: Exporting American Jobs Since 2009

Grouchy Old Cripple: Soak The Rich

The U.S., which had been a net exporter of yachts, became a net importer as U.S. companies closed. Jobs shifted to companies in Europe and the Bahamas. The U.S. Treasury collected zero revenue from the sales driven overseas.

There’s the rub. Aside from destroying jobs, and resulting in net decreases in tax collections, these tax-punishment schemes drive businesses permanently out of the country, where they are lost to us forever.

The rich don’t give a damn. They’d just as soon buy their yachts from Japan as from California. And they always have ways to evade taxes on these purchases. But the symbolism looks good to mouth-breathing class warriors who can’t add two plus two, and who are fueled entirely by envy and greed.

Oh, yeah, and one other thing: Obama isn’t making mistakes with this crap. He’s doing it on purpose.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  2. Oh, yeah, and one other thing: Obama isn’t making mistakes with this crap. He’s doing it on purpose.

    Glad to see more and more folks coming around to this view. Obama is not a failed presidency by any stretch; he has pushed his real, anti-American, anti-Semitic, Marxist agenda about as far and as fast as even his most optimistic masters could have hoped. And with Mittens looming as GOP nominee, he’ll have four more years to complete the job.

    After that, there will be blood.

  3. BTW, it’s not as if Obama and friends believe Capitalism is flawed and won’t work due to its “internal contradictions” to quote their intellectual hero. They don’t really believe this claptrap. As in Islam, it is not merely permissible but even mandatory to lie in order to protect/further the ideology.

    Rather, they are anti-Capitalism precisely because they know that it works. Why bother to spend huge amounts of effort over many decades to subvert something that will fail on its own anyway?

    Though too stupid to get it, even the Occupy Everything idiots implicitly testify to Capitalism’s efficacy.

  4. I’m bitterly clinging to a psychic prediction that Barry will last only 3 years before being forced out of office. I’ll take my chances with a year of crazy Joe. Incompetence can’t cause any more damage than deliberate malfeasance.

  5. Lorenzo, be careful what you wish for. One of the pre-requisites for passing the Great Society and LBJ’s re-election was the ability to ride on JFK’s martyrdom cred.

    I would not be the least bit surprised if Soros and Co haven’t already started grooming their James Earl Ray, complete with links to all their boogeymen.

  6. SDN, old psychic Whatshername didn’t predict an assassination, but removal from office by resignation/impeachment, and predicted that August 2011 would be when the bloom came off the rose for Barry. She even went so far as to predict Barry would end up living outside the U.S. after leaving the WH. As I said, I’m bitterly clinging to the astronomical odds she might be right.

  7. “But I thought it was Michelle!” he’ll wail…

    Could turn out to be the only halfway-honest mistake he ever made…

    Li’l Obambam’s not exactly the slickest willie in DeeCee, not by a long slide. He’s a big Marxist-minded ego in a stylishly-cut but empty suit; he’s just been allowed, by his Chicago-school politi-schemer handlers, to believe that he Can Do No Wrong – so long as he sticks to the Party line, and stays with the script he’s handed.

    He’s been their “useful tool” for a long time – only, now their schemes are starting to show the seams, and gaps are opening up. Now, he’s becoming their fall-guy – and I think he sees it happening, even while he tries to deny the ever-increasing reality, and it’s starting to make him desperate.
