The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Brooke N…
Brooke N.: An NC Tax Plan That’s an Exercise in Villainy:
Please read the comment and the article. This is NOT about a conspiracy theory. It is about what is happening to North Carolinians in broad daylight. I have friends who involve themselves in all kinds of conspiracy theories. The Rothschilds, the Fed., Kennedy’s Assassination, 9/11. To my mind, some of these theories could be at least partially true, but it doesn’t matter because even if we knew for sure that the CIA or whomever killed Kennedy, there is nothing we can do with that knowledge. We are powerless. If we could do anything it would make no difference in our lives. I find those things to be distractions from what happens where the rubber hits the road. At the state and local level where we KNOW what is happening, it affects us and we CAN do more about it than we can about Obama’s origins or FEMA camps. With that I share a commentary on North Carolina’s new tax legislation.
Amos H.: I’m glad to see that Gene Nichol is still fighting the villains who’ve tried to silence him.
Brooke N.: Sad situation in NC.
George R.: I had the honor of volunteering on Gene’s campaign when he ran for Senate in Colorado. He is a wonderful man. That said, I have always been a supporter of the “Fair Tax” and don’t believe that it is a “regressive tax” at all. But here we are not talking about the “Fair Tax” exactly although both entail a sales tax.
Sharon B.: One sure thing they can expect is a rise in petty theft. Food ad clothing come first and everything else follows.
