The desperate government drones are flailing about in their death throes, frantically trying to milk the taxpayer cow for every last drop before they die of thirst. These feckless politicians have wasted your money for decades on worthless programs and projects. The do gooders have pissed away your money on public education and the union government drones running the education system. The result has been millions of clueless dupes who can’t think for themselves.
Politicians have destroyed our major cities by taxing the citizens and businesses to the point that producers leave. They have made entitlement promises that can never be honored. Detroit was the 1st domino to fall. The idiots running the City of Philadelphia are too stupid to see they are on the exact same path as Detroit. The tax base is gone. They are left with hordes of free shit army privates. Rather than deal with reality and cut expenses, they try the same old solution – create new taxes, new regulations and new laws.
It seems the job of government drones is to crush entrepreneurial spirit, deter innovation, restrict freedom, and tax the shit out of anything the moves, breathes or helps others. Three young dudes, fresh out of college created an idea called Air Bed & Breakfast, now called Airbnb.com, in 2008. The idea was for individuals with spare rooms to be matched up with other individuals in need of a room. Two individual people coming to a mutually beneficial agreement and eliminating corporate hotels, ridiculous rules, regulations and taxes does not sit well with the oligarchs and politicians. They aren’t getting their slice of the pie. Of course, their slice would amount to nine-tenths of the pie.
These three entrepreneurs have grown their business to $2.5 billion in five years. It’s amazing what individuals with a great idea can accomplish without Obama subsidies, the government deciding winners and losers, and control freak do-gooders imposing rules, regulations and taxes to stop the business dead in its tracks.
Airbnb epitomizes the sharing economy, in which folks rent or swap all kinds of underused assets – spare rooms, cars, parking spots, lawnmowers, children’s clothes or their time.The new sector inspires almost messianic devotees who say it’s an engine of innovation that creates value out of thin air, conserves resources, empowers ordinary people to be entrepreneurs, and disrupts industries and corporations.
The slumlords, corporate hotel chains, and tax & spend politicians are outraged at this dreadful act of liberty and freedom by people across the country. And they are going to do something about it. Democratic councilman Bill Green of Philadelphia is going to stop these entrepreneurial terrorists before they make too many people satisfied. He is so impressed by their service he wants to tax and regulate the shit out of them.
“It’s a product that I use when I travel. And its something that’s clearly being used here, and we’re not enforcing the law. So we might as well figure out a way to create a registration process, and tax it, [so] that [it] works with our zoning code.”
“Right now, it’s underground, so we have to figure out how to make the sharing economy, whether its ride sharing, car sharing, Airbnb or other things like that that work with Philadelphia’s zoning code.”
What would we possibly do without politicians protecting us from ourselves and creating taxes to crush new businesses? We truly need to starve the beast. We need to expand the underground economy and starve these bastards of their taxes. Barter with people. Conduct as many transactions in cash as possible. The laws and tax regulations were written by the corporate fascists to benefit the corporate fascists. Their kingdom built on a foundation of lies and false promises is crumbling. Let’s give it a push by starving them of their tax and fee revenues.
