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.

Filmmaker Michael Moore Says Biden’s Lead In The Polls ‘Is Not An Accurate Count’

Michael Moore

It’s no secret that radical leftist filmmaker Michael Moore wants nothing more than to see President Donald Trump ousted from the White House by losing the election on November 3rd. However, despite the fact he hates Trump with every fiber of his being, he’s also not blind to the real possibility that current polls that have Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden coming out on top next week could be very, very wrong. via Daily Wire: Speaking on The Hill TV’s “Rising,” Moore lamented the ease with which President Trump was able to cut Biden’s lead in half in the state of Michigan after he previously led the president by 16 points in the state. Moore warned Democrats that they should not believe the polls putting Biden so far ahead. “Trump has tightened virtually every one of these swing states to the point where—what are they saying this morning? … ‘Biden’s five points ahead in Wisconsin… maybe three [to five] points ahead in Florida, two points ahead in Arizona.’ Listen, don’t believe these polls, first of all,” Moore said. “And second of all, the Trump vote is always being undercounted. Pollsters, when they actually call a real Trump voter, the Trump voter is very suspicious of the Deep State calling them and asking them who they’re voting for.” “So it is not an accurate count. I think the safe thing to do—this is not scientific, I’m just saying from my experience of being a Michigander—whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half, right now, in your head. Cut it in half, and now you’re within the four-point margin of error. That’s how close this is! That’s how desperately close this is!” he stressed. Moore has been constantly warning Democrats not to grow in their complacency by actually believing that…

CNN Host Don Lemon Says Trump Supporters Have To ‘Hit Rock Bottom’ To Get Help; Compares Them To Addicts

CNN host Don Lemon has made it clear over the last four years that he’s not at all a fan of President Donald Trump, nor does he have much love for his supporters. However, his latest rant about the president’s supporters is taking things to a whole new level of deplorable. During his program on Thursday, Lemon compared Trump’s supporters to drug addicts. Lemon’s colleague, Chris Cuomo, joined him on his program where the two attacked the president for continuing to hold political rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, going on to suggest that Trump supporters are beyond help. What kind of help do they need, Don? Please share with the class. via Fox News: “You know what the sad thing is? And I’ll be honest with you … I’ve had many people who I love in my life- and yeah I come from a red state, I’ve lived in several red states, there are a lot of friends who I’ve had to really get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue,” Lemon said. “They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president, they repeat it and they’re blinded by it.” “I had to get rid of them because they’re too far gone. I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points,” Lemon told Cuomo. “I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want…
