Tag: Politicians must be the dumbest people ever

Fuck the people’s will! Leave my power alone.

When they win, they will tell you it is a mandate (not to be confused with 2 guys going out on a date) and that the will of the people MUST, I-say MUST be served. But when they lose, then we have shit like this.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Days after a Republican was elected mayor of Annapolis, City Council members say they will revisit legislation that would strip the mayor’s office of much of its power.

Democratic Alderman Ross Arnett of Ward 8 tells The Capital he will introduce a charter amendment to move Annapolis to a council-manager style of government. The city manager would report directly to the City Council, not the mayor.

Under Arnett’s legislation, the mayor’s post would be largely ceremonial. The mayor would retain a single vote on the council. Arnett says the change would stabilize the city’s management.

The People’s Republic of Massachusetts did the some of the same shit when Romney was elected. That was so they could make sure they could prevent him from appointing someone that wasn’t part of the crime syndicate that runs that state to the Senate, should old “U-Boat Commander” Teddy – I will fuck a pile of rocks on the off chance there is a snake in there – Kennedy croak and the governor be left with the option to pick the next senator. Of course as soon as a democrat won there again, they rescinded that ruling. I have a feeling this is more of the same.

The clear message here is that they don’t give a flying fuck about the people. It’s all about their power and their ability to keep that power. The rest of it is just for show. Fascists to the core.

Blue State model failure double down!

If you wonder why the blue state model is so destructive economically, take a look at the insanity reported as intelligent proposals by greedy pols in this story. Particularly this:

Rep. Betsy Ritter, a Waterford Democrat, not only has sponsored a “combined reporting” bill, but she has also proposed a hoarder’s tax. This would place a levy on liquid assets — companies with a lot of money in the bank — and dedicate the proceeds to job creation programs.

Ritter, whose district includes the state’s two nuclear power plants at Millstone Point, is one of a dozen lawmakers who contend that Malloy’s plans to extend the electricity generation tax could cost southeastern Connecticut hundreds of jobs.

While Malloy has said repeatedly this is not the time to raise taxes, that line already has been crossed, Ritter said.

“It sounds to me like the legislature is respectfully saying (tax increases) are something we have to have on the table to have a balanced discussion about the budget,” she said.

Malloy stuck those of us paying taxes in the People’s Republic of Connecticut with an across the board massive tax hike last year already, an the sheeple of this state almost revolted. That is why he is so reluctant about any more increases. But the other idiot collectivists kike this Ritter idiot don’t care. To morons like Ritter it’s the government’s money and they decide how much they should let you keep.

Like all the blue states, Connecticut has much higher unemployment than the average, and the numbers are far worse when you consider underemployment. The state tries real hard to put lipstick on this pig to make it look less ugly, but the truth can not be hidden. And politicians like this Ritter are the reason why businesses are leaving or not growing. This politician is not driven by any desire to do good. It is plain and simple envy, greed, and megalomania that produces ideas as stupid as this one.

Unfortunately for the collectivist blue model nanny staters, the massive amount of failures of their previous socio-engineering policies is now leaving them with no option than to resort to outright coercion and extortion, albeit through the law, to force businesses to act like collectivist work mills, just like government does, even when doing so will be financially ruinous to said businesses. Shining turds is a job, but it produces no value for either the business or the customer. Of course idiots like Ritter will just pass a law to make people have to buy polished turds, and that solves the problem.

Fucking idiots.
