California plans to tax space travel by the mile



Liberals are salivating at the idea of taxing cars by the distance they travel, to better rake in money for their nefarious purposes. But in California they are taking the idea one step further, planning to tax space rockets by the mile as well.

According to the proposal, California will collect tax from space transportation companies based on a formula factoring in how often a company launches spacecrafts out of the state, and, most importantly, how far a commercial spacecraft travels from California soil. Between May and mid-October, there were eight launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base, in Santa Barbara County about 50 miles south of San Luis Obispo.

The Franchise Tax Board proposal said certainty about tax treatment “will lead to increased activity in the industry and will foster an atmosphere of growth and prosperity once present during the golden age of California’s aviation industry, thereby creating jobs as the industry thrives in this state.”

Yes, taxes always foster growth and prosperity... somewhere else where taxes are lower.

At least one company has already been lured away from California for the promise of greater financial incentives — though of a more earthly variety. Moon Express, a company working to mine the moon for natural resources, moved from Mountain View to Florida.

What this means in practice is that someone might take a trip to the moon from California, but if they were going to Mars or Venus or Dagobah, they would probably want to save money and leave from Florida instead. If those rockets have meters like taxi cabs, and the rockets fly several hundred miles a minute, can you imagine how fast their meters will spin?

California state government spends all it's time 24/7 thinking of new ways to tax people and businesses. It's curious, though, that they don't seem to brainstorm ways to tax the dot com industry, say with a mouse click tax for companies like Google. I guess Google has too much political clout to allow that.

What do you think California will tax next?

Trump calls on President to fight harder for border wall


Donald Trump was very critical of the President's move to agree to what basically is a Democratic spending bill for the next five months, which funds all the Democrats' priorities like the EPA, Obamacare, and Planned Parenthood while giving nothing for the construction of a border wall. That's why Mr. Trump tweeted:

Most of President Trump's environmental executive orders have been great. He has started the process of reconsidering the CAFE standards, which makes cars lighter and more deadly in car crashes. He is in the process of opening up otherwise worthless lands and oceans to valuable oil, gas, and coal exploration. He is decoupling environmental policy from imaginary global warming considerations. These actions are all very, very good.

Trump "very happy" with bill outlawing future border wall


While it's commonly known by now that the new spending bill that Congress and the Trump Administration agreed to funds mostly Democratic priorities, and doesn't fund President Trump's border wall, what's not widely known is that the new legislation goes even farther than this. Not only does it not fund the border wall, but it prevents the government from constructing a border wall with any funds.

Donald Trump put together a list of promises he would keep when elected president, not merely by the end of his first term but specifically by the end of his first 100 days in office in his "100 day action plan". How many of these promises has he kept? I have rated the results below on a scale from 1-5 Bannons (more Bannons is good) to 1-5 Kushners (more Kushners is bad).
