Quotes of the day

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced Thursday that he will propose legislation that would cut taxes for Detroit and other areas of the country that are in dire financial straits, pitching the idea as an alternative to bureaucratic government stimulus programs…

“What we hope to do is create taxes so low that you essentially are able to bail yourselves out, by having more money accumulate in the area over time,” Paul said.

The taxes that would be reduced include the income tax, the corporate tax, payroll taxes and the capital gains tax. The bill would also lower the economic threshold for immigrants who want to start businesses in these areas to $50,000.

The legislation would apply to all areas of the country with an unemployment rate that is at least 50 percent greater than the national average.

“[Jack] Kemp loved figuring out ways to empower people — real people, regardless of race or family background,” Paul will say in his speech on Friday, according to excerpts. “He called his plan a ‘Conservative war on poverty.’ It’s time we revisit Jack Kemp’s plan and expand on it.”

While Kemp’s ideas were celebrated on the right, they faced deep skepticism elsewhere, as will Paul’s proposal.

Critics of proposals like Paul’s argue they are nothing more than a dramatic tax cut for big businesses that will do little to help lower-income Americans.

“Enterprise zones are not especially effective at increasing overall economic activity or raising incomes for the poor,” said Len Burman, director of the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and a former Clinton administration official. “They just seem to move the locus of activity across the zone’s boundary — reducing activity outside the zone and increasing it inside.”

***

His speech, which came after a visit to a new African-American voter outreach center office opened by the Michigan Republican Party in Detroit, also touched on a variety of issues ranging from taxes to education to criminal justice to the 2016 presidential race…

“We need to be a more diverse party if we’re ever going to win again. We need people with tattoos, ponytails and earrings,” he said. “The Democratic Party is more diverse than we are. We lose all the big cities. We have to change or we won’t win nationally again.”…

Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican from Kentucky, said Republicans have to do more than just show up.

“It’s about economic empowerment, education and school choice … and criminal justice,” he said. “It’s important that we talk about this, because I don’t think we’ve treated people fairly.”

***

“How are you supposed to make child support payments if you’ve been in prison, and the best job you can get is $9 an hour?” Sen. Rand Paul asked, wearing a suit and tie at the opening of a new GOP office on Livernois Avenue in Detroit.

Child support, prison and the war on drugs are not usual topics for the GOP senator, who had previously gained media attention for launching a filibuster against President Obama’a nominee to head the CIA because Paul questioned the administration’s use of drones…

“Today’s opening of this office is the beginning of a new Republican Party,” Paul said. “This is going to be a Republican Party that is in big cities and small cities, in the countryside, in the city. It’s going to be about bringing a message that is popular no matter where you’re from, whether you’re rich or poor, whether you’re black, white or brown.”

Out-of-context Biden comment to working women in Tokyo sparks firestorm back home
By David Nakamura, Saturday, December 7, 12:11 PM
*************************************************

SEOUL — Vice President Biden’s trip to Asia was the perfect opportunity for a politician with a reputation for verbal gaffes to show off his serious political chops. A skirmish between China and Japan thrust him into the role of international mediator on the eve of his departure.

But no sooner had Biden arrived at his first stop in Tokyo on Wednesday than his aides were greeted with a nightmare series of headlines and cable TV shout-fests back in Washington over whether the vice president is a sexist with old-fashioned, patriarchal attitudes toward women.

The evidence in question was a comment Biden made during a carefully staged photo op with female employees at a Japanese Internet firm. Sliding into a booth next to five young women, Biden opened his small talk with them by asking, “Do your husbands like you working full time?”

You go on welfare.

The progressives in either party will oppose any initiative that is not based on government control of wealth and redistribution to their favored groups, whether “big business” on the GOP side or “community organizers” on the Dem side. So Paul’s idea is DOA.

As for getting people with “ponytails, earrings, and tattoos” into the GOP, short of establishing the death penalty for owning a gun, a car, or a business, blowing up every power plant in CONUS, and launching a national Free Dope For Life program for all “truly good, sensitive, and caring people”, it ain’t gonna happen.

There are some gaps that cannot be bridged short of death of the self, and they have nothing to do with sartorial faux pas’.

After the repubics pass their Amnesty Plan and Pathway to Citizenship, Paul wants the “new immigrants” given a “Homestead Opportunity” in Detroit along with his extended Kemp plan.

Every city’s low-life politicians can then promise the moon at elections, spend like crazy and later demand the same bailout. USA = united suckers of America.

“How are you supposed to make child support payments if you’ve been in prison, and the best job you can get is $9 an hour?”

Granted that once someone is imprisoned that it usually leads to an endless cycle of incarceration and dependency on the government, but just focusing on easing the laws won’t change anything. There needs to be drastic changes in the cultures where this breeds, and that includes the majority of our so called black leadership. The people and their culture are the problem, not conservatism. Till that’s addressed, no amount of pandering in the inner cities will make any difference. Something Rand Paul doesn’t seem to get.

I’ve always looked at Detroit’s last 30 yr situation as a twisted form of ethnic-cleansing ,
where a productive middle class got “cleansed” out using marxism .
Muzies have been increasingly taking over such locales, buildings,cities and businesses in the US, these days.
BTW, I see nothing wrong with the partition of India and Pakistan, it was a good thing that a big part of 7th century savages removed themselves from the Indian population resulting in a better India .

Detroit has a 60(?) year history of liberals proudly redistributing other peoples hard earned wealth. One has to know that as soon as possible the low taxes and incentives will be cast aside and they will be coming hard to confiscate as much of your money as they can get their hands on.

Rand Paul, a politician, correctly knows that the GOP has to do better with AA, Latino, Asian, and women voters if it wants a shot at winning in 2016. Knowing this, he is pitching ideas that might resonate with those groups and get them to cast ballots for him and the GOP.

I don’t live in her basement, but I visit. Work on her truck, help out with whatever.

Cold in the morning. Ride after it warms up.

She cooks one helluva breakfast. My dad died young.

I’ll spend every minute I can with my mom.

We play music. Guitar, clawfoot banjo, violin, viola, mandolin.

Hippie mom.

“How are you supposed to make child support payments if you’ve been in prison, and the best job you can get is $9 an hour?” Sen. Rand Paul asked, wearing a suit and tie at the opening of a new GOP office on Livernois Avenue in Detroit.

Gee! I wonder why he made a comment about prison and child support payments in Detroit.

Fact of the matter is that anybody who could get out of Detroit did so a long time ago. That includes all the responsible parents. If Rand Paul thinks that the baby daddies of whoever is remaining are going to suddenly pay child support he is as stupid as his father.
