Brit Millionaires Worried That They Might Be Due For A “Spread The Wealth Around” Ogabe-Like Fleecing

And, UNEXPECTEDLY, start considering fleeing the country.

Who could possibly have foreseen this???

So, Brit Socialists, if you do decide to go for an “eat the rich” approach just like our Ear Leader™ wants to do, where are those “added revenues” going to come from when the ones you want to fleece are no longer there?

It’s the same “mistake” socialists always make, and we use quotation marks here because they know full well that it’s going to happen, they just don’t want the drooling sheeple to know as well. “If You Tax It, It Will Leave™.”

Ask Kalifornikated with their recent “tax Amazon for people living in Kalifornikate selling Amazon stuff on their websites.”

What happened the very minute it passed was that Amazon, of course, immediately dropped their associates program in Kalifornikate.

End result? The “added revenue” that the greedy socialist parasites were drooling to get disappeared overnight without having even materialized in the first place AND the income taxes that Kalifornikate was collecting from the associates living there disappeared with it.

Another Epic Socialist Fail™.

It’s really quite simple, you know.

Which is why it’s particularly galling to hear our domestic, socialist, tax and spend highway robbers rail against those Evil Corporate Entities Outsourcing Jobs.™

There’s a reason for all of this outsourcing, and a constructive approach would be to enact legislation encouraging companies to stay rather than legislation forcing them to flee. But that would make too much sense, of course. Funny, though, we seem to recall a time when Why Do They Hate Us?™ was ever so popular on the left.

Thatisall.

    Which was the same thing that happened in Illinoiz when they passed the exact same bill, but a lot of the local businesses moved to Wisconsin or Indiana.

    Same thing with the “sin taxes”. They put a punitive tax on something (cigarettes, alcohol, disposable diapers) that is not approved of by the state that will raise 1.2 billion per year in revenue for the state to offset the cost of a program, so they fund 1.2 billion for the program, but…three years down the road, the people have either stopped using the taxed product or have found a way around it and revenue is only .006 billion. However they have a mandated program requiring 1.2 billion + and yearly COLA of 8%….and you are in Kalifornistan or any of the other states or countries that have tried this BS.

    It ain’t only the rich that do their damnedest to avoid stupid taxes.

    Pennsylvania did that very thing with cigarettes. Two hours up the road is an Indian casino and reservation…… no taxes on cigarettes. The vehicles that come back from the casino, loaded with cigs, is astounding.

    Heck, the UK did this to themselves before… its the real reason for the ‘British Invasion” of entertainment people (musicians, actors, etc) in the ’60s and precisely what the Beatles song Taxman refers to…

    Yep. that’s why Lennon was in New York , Starr was in California and Harrison died in Kalifornia.

    Socialism is the greatest thing, until you start to make money and they want to apply “social justice” to your earnings, then you start looking for an out.

    U2 (the band) bailed out of Ireland (went to Netherlands) when the tax exempt laws for “artists” were changed. These self-proclaimed champions of the down-trodden didn’t waste a day in protecting their millions from the Irish tax-man. So much for altruistic hogwash….friggin’ hypocrites! :em07:

    The Brit “elite” will do the very same when it means saving their money……
