If It Moves, Tax It!
The former French president Nicholas Sarkozy says he thinking of moving to London to escape French taxes.
Now pro golfer Phil Mickelson said he's thinking of moving out of California because of the new state tax that brings his total tax bill to between 62 and 63 percent.
At least Mickelson has apologized for bringing up the subject after last week's event in Palm Springs.
Finances and taxes are a personal matter, and I should not have made my opinions on them public. I apologize to those I have upset or insulted, and assure you I intend not to let it happen again.”It is unseemly for multi-millionaires to complain about their tax bills. So let me do it for them.
Tax rates that take more than half of what any man or women earns are confiscatory and inherently unjust. Not only that, they are stupid. They chase productive people to other states and other lands. The problem here isn't selfish individuals, it's Jabba the Hut government; disgustingly fat, greedy and powerful.
Pretty soon California is going to have to put a barbed-wire fence; not to keep illegal aliens out, but to keep it's millionaires in. And all to pay for the public employee unions, who bought the state's (and other states') politicians years ago.
