    commandments No. 10: COVETOUSNESS
    “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house; thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

    Biblical justice means equality before the law.
    “You shall do no injustice in judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor nor defer to the great, but you are to judge your neighbor fairly” (Lev. 19:15).

    The greatest argument for state based taxation and for a payment to be made to the Federal government from that taxation, not the other way around.
    We need tax competition.
    They’ll soon learn how revenue comes from decreased taxation and private sector activity.

    That is the problem with education today.

    In a proper society everyone would feel such an obligation to everyone else they would be charging en masse to government offices demanding to be able to hand over their money.

    They would view every dollar they had they had as mute but unambiguous accusation. They would be sick at the thought of having two boiled turnips if they knew somebody else had only one.

    There would be TV shows and newspaper articles highlighting individual acts of austerity and devotion to the state – the single manifestation of a united people with a common dream.

    SOLIDARITY comrades!

    No, they would cut out the middle man and support them directly, face to face, or via private charities.

    Hi John A, I was kind of voicing Cuomo’s thoughts – and his astonishment that people are not thrilled to be taxed to bits but will move to keep a bit more of what is theirs.

    How much is cuomo the homo worth? What are the sources of his wealth? Does he live in a gated community to avoid nasty illegals ? Have you noticed the shock in lefties when people avoid paying them the money they earned by working ? They know they are stuffed without other peoples money,without OPM socialism dies ,look at Venezuela ! To defeat the left deprive them of OPM .

    Gary North:
    A society which begins to adopt taxation policies that exceed the tithe is tyrannical slavery ( tithe = ten per cent of income )

    After all, who can trust a civil government which claims the right to take more of a person’s income than God requires for the support of his kingdom?  What kind of protection from injustice can we expect from such a civil government?

    Not the first time NY has hit troubled times IIRC correctly. From wiki:

    Abraham David “Abe” Beame (March 20, 1906 – February 10, 2001)[2] was the 104th Mayor of New York City, from 1974 to 1977.[3] As mayor, he presided over the city during its fiscal crisis of the mid-1970s, during which the city was almost forced to declare bankruptcy.

  9. New York needs a wall to keep the wealthy in! Or maybe an exit tax is in the offing. Trust the bureaucrats to try something!

    Its amazing and somewhat repetitive how liberals screw things up, are suprised by the consequences of their actions and then try to externalise it by blaming others. In this case they even threw in a “it’s much worse than we thought” climate alarmist style.

    Such is their superior certainty and hubris, they remain wilfully oblivious and just double down all they way into the toilet California style.

    Does this mean that Rudd and Turnbull are hit with these socialist taxes. Or is this whishful thinking.
