Exclamation Civilization collapses as makers Go Galt! Yacht Parade cancelled! - 12-23-2012, 03:51 PM

Like many successful job creators, I own a couple of yachts, including one I dock at Newport Beach, Connecticut. The harbour needs work though:
The city's five-year plan for the harbor calls for $29 million in long-overdue maintenance. Its silt-filled channels haven't been fully dredged since the Great Depression. Ancient, leaky sea walls protecting neighborhoods need to be repaired or replaced. "We have the makings of a perfect storm like they did on the East Coast" during Superstorm Sandy, said Chris Miller, the city's harbor resources manager. "The sea walls are nearing the end of their useful life."
Easy problem to solve: just make a payroll tax on the lazier classes, or borrow the money.

But what did the class warriors do? They've increased the fees:
Newport's dock fee, which has stood at $100 a year for the last two decades, will now be based on a dock's size. The city says rents will increase to about $250 for a small slip to $3,200 annually for a large dock shared by two homeowners.
What a rip off! At this rate, I might as well just get a private dock, since it would only cost ten or twenty thousand dollars more. I should do it just to spite these statist goons. And I would, if it didn't cost more. They should be begging me to honor their docks with my presence, not expecting me to pay for them, at the extortionate rate of 10% the private-sector price.

So, the yacht-owners of Newport Beach are GOING GALT! We are going to show the world what happens when you don't have millionaires and billionaires around:
We will "...boycott the boat parade and festival of lights by a group calling itself "Stop the Dock Tax."

"It costs us thousands of dollars to voluntarily decorate our homes and boats to bring holiday smiles to nearly 1 million people," organization Chairman Bob McCaffrey wrote to the city. "This year, we are turning off our lights and withdrawing our boats..."
I'm not just stopping at having an unlit yacht, I'm also going to take my Sunday drives without shining, no, with out even WASHING (the outside that is) of my sports cars. Every Sunday I bring smiles to people, as they gaze upon my cars, and my young import "secretary" Katya (or Kathia, she seems to change how she pronounces it all the time). How, I ask, how will you in the lazier classes be able to smile when you can't see my shiny cars and import secretaries? (You'll still be able to see her, but she'll be wearing more clothes.)

See how the collapse of civilization is coming, as we Go Galt? Now you'll have to live without yacht parades. Next others will also drive unshined luxury cars, and our secretaries and autobiographers will dress unsexily. Next, just to drive home how much you need us, our powerpoint presentations will be in black and white!

And you know how we deliver smiles to people by having fancy ornate gates in our gated communities? Next it will be plain old razor wire. See, now we're straight into Mad Max territory! See how much you need billionaires?

This is typical liberal get-more-give-more nonsense.

Whatever happened to good old conservative values like get-more-give-bare-minimum? How is anybody supposed to make a profit in this economy?

Mr. Thurmond, on behalf of poor people let me apologize to you for our greediness. Rest be assured I will be campaigning hard for the City of San Diego to purchase full service docks for billionaire yacht owners and a new stadium for our loser football team. We all benefit from the miracle of trickle-down economics so it's only fair we return it many-fold over in tax breaks and debt forgiveness. After all, a few billion dollars of incentives to a billionaire, when spread over millions of poor people, is only a few thousand bucks each.

It turns out that rich Christian capitalists are not the only ones going "Galt". The rich Limousine Liberals – the ones always admonishing the rest of us to pay "our fair share" of the taxes are "Galting" their "responsibility" as well – like the Democrat Senator John Kerry from the socialist workers paradise of Taxachusetts.

John Kerry Saves $500,000 By Docking 76-Foot Luxury Yacht Out Of State
First Posted: 07/23/10 11:09 AM ET Updated: 05/25/11 06:10 PM ET

BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is docking his family's new $7 million yacht in neighboring Rhode Island, allowing him to avoid paying roughly $500,000 in taxes to the cash-strapped Bay State.

If the "Isabel" were kept at the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee's summer vacation home on Nantucket, or in Boston Harbor near his city residence, he would be liable for $437,500 in one-time sales tax. He would also have to pay $70,000 in annual excise taxes.

Rhode Island repealed those taxes in 1993. That has made the state something of a nautical tax haven.

Kerry spokesman David Wade said Friday the boat is being kept at Newport Shipyard not to evade taxes, but "for long-term maintenance, upkeep and charter purposes."

Wade noted the vessel was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine and purchased in the state. It was built in New Zealand by Friendship Yachts.

A Department of Revenue spokesman said Kerry would be liable for Massachusetts taxes if he berthed the boat in the Bay State within six months of its purchase. If the "Isabel" were brought to Massachusetts after that period, the state would have to decide if it wanted to pursue the taxes.

Massachusetts, like most other states, has been grappling with plunging tax revenues. Last year's budget decifict was $600 million, and officials are bracing for a $1 billion deficit this year.

The 76-foot sloop has two cabins, a pilot house fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage, according to the Boston Herald, which first reported its Rhode Island berthing. It derives its moniker from the middle name of Kerry's mother and the name his wife, Teresa Heinz, planned to give a daughter.

Instead, she had three sons.

Coast Guard registration records show the vessel is owned by Great Point LLC, a limited liability corporation based in Pittsburgh, Heinz's longtime home. The millionaire heiress to the Heinz ketchup fortune is a philanthropist and environmentalist.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/0..._n_656985.html
Of course John Kerry didn't arrive at his fortune the old fashioned way – by actually working to make ketchup, he did it by marrying a heiress to those that did.

If Obama has his way, all those involved in the trickle down yachting industry – from manufacturing, selling, and maintaining yachts, will be out of a job soon. They might be able to find work at the IRS making sure that the rest of us can't go "Galt" escaping ObamaCare.

Healthcare Reform Law Requires New IRS Army Of 1,054
By Paul Bedard

The Internal Revenue Service says it will need an battalion of 1,054 new auditors and staffers and new facilities at a cost to taxpayers of more than $359 million in fiscal 2012 just to watch over the initial implementation of President Obama's healthcare reforms. Among the new corps will be 81 workers assigned to make sure tanning salons pay a new 10 percent excise tax. Their cost: $11.5 million.

Another key part of civilization collapses: now you'll miss out on the pleasure of looking at our mansions, as we abandon them. He might even stop working - how will civilization survive without advertisers?
Legendary advertising guru Jerry Della Femina is the latest Hamptons fat cat to unload his East End spread at the precipice of the dreaded fiscal cliff. The flamboyant Madison Avenue guru has sold his 8,500-square-foot estate — the host of many legendary bashes — for $25 million, and blames his flight squarely on President Obama’s fiscal policies.

“I’m basically the loser in Obama’s class warfare. That’s what this boils down to. If Romney was elected, we would have had our parties in East Hampton this year. … I want the proceeds of this sale to go to my kids and my grandkids. I don’t want my money going to Obama, and that’s what’s going to happen in the New Year. That’s why I sold right now, that’s why I wanted to get this done.”
Exactly: don't give your money to some mooching construction worker to repair infrastructure. This should be a land of rugged individualists, who pull ourselves up by own own bootstraps. The truly self-reliant don't need government jobs, we inherit our money.

I tried to find out how much of the federal budget goes to Obama's salary, but the government is engaging in a coverup. Look, it's not even on the chart:
