Muth’s Truths: May 1, 2017

President Donald Trump held a 100-Day celebration/rally in Harrisburg, PA on Saturday instead of going to the annual black-tie White House “Fake” Correspondents Dinner.  And it was fabulous.  Vintage Trump.

He started off skewering the media, always a crowd pleaser…

“A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now.  They are trapped at the dinner, which will be very very boring.  I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington’s swamp, spending my evening with all of you with a much, much larger crowd and much, much better people.”

The president then rattled through the list of accomplishments that “fake news” rarely gives him credit for, and reiterated the campaign promises he made and the ones he’s already kept. He also assured his supporters that he’ll keep on moving forward with the agenda he was elected to pursue and took a couple of well-deserved shots at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

After the speech, CNN’s talking-heads panel had their usual conniption and meltdown.

Has-been David Gergen said it was the “most divisive” presidential speech he’s ever heard.  Jerkwad Paul Begala called the President of the United States a “moral midget” and “needy little baby.”  Failed former Democrat Gov. Jenny Granholm was practically sobbing about the speech being “so, so sad for America.”

Here are the closing lines from this “moral midget’s” “divisive” speech that radicalized liberals find “so, so sad”…

“Whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.  And we all share the same glorious freedoms of our magnificent country.  We are all made by the same almighty God.  As long as we remember these truths, we will not fail.  We will never fail.  We are Americans and the future belongs to us…

“Together, we will make America strong again.  We will make America wealthy again.  We will make America prosper again.  We will make America proud again.  We will make America safe again.  And we will make America great again!  Thank you.  God bless you.”

You have to be suffering from a serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to oppose those words or call them “divisive.” That so many on the left do is what’s truly “so, so sad for America.”

Cheers.

P.S.  Attention, Carnival Baja Cruisers!

Jeff Church of Reno plans to park at the Long Beach Park & Ride rather than park at the pier ($19/day) adjacent to the dock.  Anyone interested in saving a few bucks and car-pooling with Jeff should contact him directly at (800) 554-9519 or at renocop@earthlink.net.

Also, if for some reason you have trouble contacting me via email or text (chuck@chuckmuth.com / (702) 350-0040) once onboard the Imagination, my room is E-190.

On Sunday afternoon before we cast off, the best odds of finding me will be to head to the Lido Deck.  Look for the old white dude drinking a “Carnival Punch” and wearing a bright red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap!

How Sly Nevada Legislators are Trying to Sneak around the Gibbons Tax Restraint Law

The tax-hikers among us are as unscrupulous as they are relentless.  At issue this time in Nevada are a pair of cunningly wily bills: Senate Bill 149 and Assembly Bill 375.  But before talking about these scams, everyone needs to understand something about how Nevada’s government is set up.

The various counties and cities do NOT have “home rule.”  Which means they can’t raise taxes on you and me on their own.  While I might think they should have that authority – government closest to the people and all – they don’t.

Only the Nevada Legislature can raise taxes.  So legislators should either change the “home rule” law or follow it – not try to get around it.

Secondly, efforts to RESTRAIN taxes over the years have had no chance of passing in the Legislature.  So conservatives have been forced to go out and collect signatures – a very expensive and time-consuming process – in order to put tax restraint measures on the ballot.

That includes the Gibbons Tax Restraint Initiative which constitutionally requires a 2/3 super-majority vote of the Legislature to raise taxes and was approved TWICE by Nevada voters.

Now comes the 2017 Legislature…

FAMOUS LAST WORDS

“The rich deserve an income tax cut more than you do.  That’s because the income tax soaks the rich.  The top 5 percent of taxpayers pay 58.5 percent of income tax revenues.  Meanwhile, the bottom 90 percent of taxpayers pay 41.4 percent on income tax revenues.” – Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Victor Joecks
