Phil Mickelson getting flack for daring to say being in the highest tax bracket will influence where he lives!


Can you believe people are giving him flack because he wants to keep more than 40 cents on every dollar he earns? He will do far better with that money than the National Government bailing out banks, car companies, renewable energy sources or squandering it in the Middle East.

There are a ton of statist there in need of some Liberty rebuttals... and more than a few neo-cons getting their asses handed to them - which I don't really care about except for the fact that the statist think the neo-cons are anti-state. They aren't anti-state. At best they are just anti-state lite, hold the common sense and with an extra large side of jingoism.

What does the state of california do to help his golf game so much that they deserve 40% of his income? The least they can do is clean his balls.

How dare he!

As punishment he must give all his money to the government. And if he complains, that means he must hate his country. Real patriots are always obedient and never complain.

I used to not like Phil, but now I do. Tell 'em to shove it...

It's your natural right to speak your mind.

"Sticks and stones..."

I used to not like him either...

Until I discovered that his little heel up thing in his swing changed my life on the golf course! lol

Don't Hold Your Breaath

White men have to apologize breathing.

Time to move to Florida Phil.

The game these states are

The game these states are playing is not fair.

California taxes the rich. They then move to Florida. Florida needs government revenue, so they tax the middle-class. The middle=class cannot exactly move; they end up eating it.

This is in reference to the fact that overall tax revenue vs. GDP are very similar CA vs. Florida.

Rich people do not require social services and they provide revenue through their purchases.

Tax revenue v. GDP is irrelevant in this regard.
