California Lawmakers Look to Pillage Population with Taxes on Tires, Water, and MORE

Californians may soon face not only a tax on soda, but also WATER.

At one point in our history, very early on, Americans used to find themselves wholly incensed at the idea of higher taxes.

In fact, it’s what drove We The People, at the time a bunch of libertarian farmers, to defeat the single greatest fighting force in the world after throwing a bunch of their tea into the harbor in Boston.  We put our foot down and said that the British government would no longer be allowed to funnel our hard earned money back to the UK in order to keep the monarchy plump and comfortable.

Somewhere along the way, we seem to have become jaded about taxes and the things that they are used for in government.

The people of California know this all too well, thanks to the state legislature’s undeniable fondness for taxing just about anything they can get away with.

Now it seems as though there is no end in sight, with a bevy of new tax proposal floating around The Golden State, including a tax on water.

The proposal, which if enacted would levy a fee of between 95 cents and $10 a month on residents’ water bills depending on meter readings, has divided members of Newsom’s own party. Tax and fee increases require support from two-thirds of lawmakers and, despite Democrats holding roughly 75 percent of the legislative seats in the state, some representatives from moderate and agricultural strongholds balk at the water tax idea.

And everyone knows that you can’t make tea without water…

Other proposed pillaging includes taxes on things such as tires, soda, and guns; the latter being seen as a possible deterrent to ownership by precocious progressives.

The bill, which was sponsored by Democratic Assemblyman Marc Levine, would implement “an excise tax on the sales of handguns and semiautomatic rifles” and then hand over the resulting revenue to the California Violence Intervention and Prevention Grant Program (CalVIP).

“California needs to bolster violence prevention initiatives so that they are commensurate with our state’s tough gun laws and as effective as violence prevention programs of other states,” Levine said in a statement earlier this month.

There are certainly plenty of harbors and bays off the coast of California, should Americans need a place to expel a little frustration with their over-taxing government.

Michelle Obama Is Blaming Her ‘Low-Grade Depression’ On the Trump Administration [Details]

Oy vey!

Michelle Obama and other Americans who will vote for Joe Biden in November seem to forget the damage Barack’s administration caused for nearly a full decade. If they weren’t race-baiting or pandering, the members of the team really didn’t know what to do with themselves. The nation is a better place now that the Obamas are out of the spotlight. But that’s not where they want to be. From The Daily Wire: Former first lady Michelle Obama claimed that she has been suffering from “low-grade depression” recently, and pinpointed the Trump administration’s response to the nation’s racial problems as a cause. During an interview on her new podcast with Washington Post columnist Michele Norris, Obama said that, like many Americans, the coronavirus pandemic and the turmoil roiling the nation since George Floyd’s death have led her to some low points. CONTINUED: “There have been periods throughout this quarantine where I just have felt too low,” Obama said. “You know, I’ve gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.” Claiming she has been experiencing sleep disturbances, Obama continued, “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/1290996047104409601?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1290996047104409601%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-claims-he-didnt-mean-to-make-racist-comments-about-blacks-despite-doubling-down-fails-to-apologize

He is everywhere – even inside a random Walmart in North Versailles, Pennsylvania. The clip you’ll see below went viral for all the right reasons. You can take the people out of the church, but you can’t take the church out of the people. From Post Millennial: A video of a worship service happening inside a Walmart, reportedly in North Versailles, Pennsylvania, has the internet chirping. The churchgoers took to Walmart to come together in worship, as churches have been closed, but Walmarts are open. WATCH: https://twitter.com/LifeNewsHQ/status/1291411407947407363?s=20 The left has never been a friend of Jesus. How some liberals can consider themselves Christians, while supporting the atrocity that is abortion, makes little to no sense whatsoever. On Monday, Bernie Sanders-supporting radical Shaun King tweeted something he should feel pretty silly about. But he probably doesn’t. From Daily Wire: Shaun King, the controversial Black Lives Matter activist known for pushing false claims, called for the destruction of Jesus Christ statues and Christian churches for their depiction of the “white” holy family, which King argued are forms of “white supremacy” and “racist propaganda” that promote “oppression.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275106946916499456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275106946916499456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p He then followed it up with this gem… https://twitter.com/shaunking/status/1275113067555303424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1275113067555303424&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftear-them-down-blm-activist-shaun-king-calls-for-destruction-of-jesus-christ-statues-churches-for-white-supremacy-oppression-racist-p
