We Have a New Contender!

The Pie is shrinking The asset hedge funds that could walk out.

Jared Walczak, senior policy analyst at the right-leaning Tax Foundation, said, "It’s plausible that political circumstances led to a deferral of income" in 2016, leading to a decline in the number households reporting income of $1 million or more. But Mr. Walczak said some rich Connecticut residents may have reached a tipping point and concluded it is no longer reasonable to live there because of the income taxes.

Paradoxically, the Hedge Clippers might achieve their goals sooner than they expect: Because after the state’s wealthiest are forced to bear the brunt of the SALT-deduction elimination (which effectively ends federal tax subsidies to typically blue states with a high cost of living), Greenwich – which has already endured a precipitous drop in sales of luxury homes – might turn into a ghost town, or at the very least more closely resemble the rest of the state. That is, unless Republican Bob Stefanowski, who has campaigned on phasing out the state’s income tax, wins an upset victory in the Democratic-leaning state.

Why would CT be a contender when CA might institute medicare for all and open borders? Size. Economically CA dwarfs CT. Any drop in tax revenue in CT would be drop in the bucket for CA. Say three of those asset fund firms moved to FL. CT loses the income tax, property tax, use fees, etc for both the firm exiting and the relocating employees.

California I am still rooting for ya, but the competition is stiff.

    Conn may be surging but Gavin Newsome is promising free medical care for illegals.
    I don’t see how a bump in taxes can compete with that!

    JR, did you get your official state election guide yet?
    Mine came and Gavin Newsome doesn’t even have a bio page. Confident? Or screwed up the scheduling?

    Jim, We haven’t gotten ours yet…I’ll let ya know. It would be a MASSIVE upset for Cox to beat Newsome though

    Grassley grows a pair. “Use the scheduled time slot or lose it.” The bluff has been called. Do the Dims raise or call?

    Good chance Grassley did a vote check and knows he has the votes to confirm.

    agree completely with #7

    and remember, this “assassination” by media ONLY applies to Republicans. Keith Ellison, Teddy Kennedy, Robert Byrd…et al…all protected by the magic (D)

    Henkel, a German company that sells everything from Dial soap to All detergent to Schwarzkopf women’s hair care To adhesives recently went against the grain and moved its US headquarters from Scottsdale, AZ to Stamford, CT, presumably to be closer to the mother ship both in terms of time zones and travel distance. You have to wonder what impact it had on employees who relocated.

    Other than Henkel, what company would move from Arizona to Connecticut?

    Sadly, I agree with Eph…squishy RINOs are still waiting to sabotage Trump, and Kavanaugh is a convenient way for them to do so.

    JR #8

    You forgot Billy Jeff, who has been accused by at least a dozen women of everything from groping to rape. Ford’s lawyer – Bull Dyke Katz – has said there is no way he could be convicted of anything with Paula Jones because of the lack of witnesses. We know Clinton’s character – he had oral sex with an intern repeatedly in the Oval Office.

    She seems to have different opinions based on a man’s political philosophy.

    Clinton and Kennedy were pro-abortion so they could do anything to women and still be considered a hero by feminists.

    Hawaii Senator Crazy Mazie Hirino: Men should ‘Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing.’

    So apparently men should just remain silent when someone without any proof (and apparently unwilling to testify) tries to ruin a man’s career.

    How many false accusations have ween leveled by women, Muslims, blacks? Can anyone say “Duke Lacrosse?”

    I had not read the actual “lie detector” statement…it is damning, IMHO

    On the advice of Katz, who said she believed Ford would be attacked as a liar if she came forward, Ford took a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent in early August. The results, which Katz provided to The Post, concluded that Ford was being truthful when she said a statement summarizing her allegations was accurate.

    so she was being TRUTHFUL when she answered “Yes” to the question: “Is this what you said?”

    My only surprise is how brazen they put this stuff right in the yearbook.

    May it not be a hoax.

    “The Senate panel should stop everything,” attorney Debra Katz said, “and delay the confirmation vote until a full criminal investigation can be completed — or until Democrats re-take the Senate, whichever comes first.”

    As you have been saying JR, they don’t even hide it anymore!

    Kavanaugh’s accuser now has a new set of lawyers (amazing, huh?)

    they are now saying she would LOVE to testify…just not on “Monday” (Mondays are bad for her…or something). Whatever date Grassley agrees to (if he does) will then also (sadly) be postponed…soooooo sorry. And so on…for WEEKS!

    Finish it!!

    25 – Nope they don’t, it’s right there in black and white for everyone to see.

    If I was a GOPer on committee I would. As they say in the courts, “It goes to the veracity of the witness your honor.”

    PS: Fact we need to expose her. As someone once opined — “Extraordinary charges require extraordinary evidence.” Ford should not get a pass. If the GOPer let her do so its open season on any person requiring senate confirmation. Better to make one think twice.

    I saw a brief mention in a comment stream of Ford calling for women to allege sexual encounters with Repubs.
    Supposedly on her (recovered?) Facebook but no link was given, so maybe fake news.

    Jim, the only reason it is probably fake, is that Facebook will protect her deleted account to the ends of the Earth. Now then, if Kavanaugh has written anything the Left doesn’t like, then THAT will be splashed all over.

    Two sets of rules.

    Muz airline mgmt student, here on visa, tries to steal airliner.


    MELBOURNE, Fla. —

    A student pilot at the Florida Institute of Technology is in custody after he allegedly hopped a fence at Orlando Melbourne International Airport and boarded an American Airlines jet that was parked in a maintenance area.

    The Nishal Sankat, a 22-year-old student, has been charged with criminal attempt to steal an airplane, a visa violation and criminal trespassing.

    Nothing to see here…move along.

    Three of the demands by Ford’s team of lawyers (and yes, it is a TEAM):

    Wants to testify second and Kavanaugh to appear first;
    Hmmmm….why is that? Oh yeah, if Kavanaugh pulls out old home movies showing he spent the whole Summer of 1982 in Botswanna working in a medical clinic, then his accuser suddenly “remembers” it was the Summer of 1981 or 1983. Oops.

    Doesn’t want Kavanaugh in the room at the same time with her;
    Hmmmm….why is that? Because even the most practiced liar has trouble lying directly to someone’s face.

    Cannot be questioned by outside counsel, but only by the senators on the committee.
    Hmmmm….why is that? Because this has NOTHING to do with the truth, which a FEMALE lawyer could safely search for. But if EVERY TIME an “old white male” Republican asks her ANY question, the Democrat Senators will SCREECH horrible things…and Christine will tremble and cry at the “harsh” treatment.

    It’s the kind of process one would expect to see in the “finest” Stalinesque show trials. Which is what this has become.

    A doppelganger theory emerges — https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-20/was-kavanaugh-accuser-almost-raped-his-doppelganger-new-theory-emerges

    JR, By the way the Ford setup is exactly the arrangement students have received at the hands of university star chamber courts. If it flows this way during the confirmation a good chunk of America is going to be appalled which should end such witch trials.
