Very sad to hear about Mitchell Robinson needing hand surgery and gonna be out for 4 to 6 weeks, But that's a great breakdown for Gilbert Burns to win this fight. He needs to avoid the grappling. He needs to avoid the wrestling. He needs to avoid getting pinned up against the cage. Which husband did so well against the likes of horny hospital, but also against another restaurant time, Woodley. When you want the belt in March of 2019, he needs to keep this fight. Relatively close, in my opinion to the center of the Octagon, and he needs to stand and trade. He is a better boxer, the newsman, he has more power in his hands than tomorrow. Spend, he can knock out newsman. That's his best way to win this fight. Don't get into the grappling exchanges. Don't try to out wrestle him. That would be a mistake.

"Country, going to France and going to Spain, you know, and s so some of its people just beginning to really get their heads around this. Andre. You know it zone thing that people would like to be over because, you know, frankly, people are bored with it. It's it's gone on so long. But it also realizing that this is something that whose long term implications we don't really yet. No. Well, until December, 31st. There had never been a moment. When Ireland. And Britain. We're not in the EU together. So as island got richer through the nineties, the Oh ohs and and into the teens. Even through the crisis, even through the troubles, A lot of things evolved without any even a lot of conscious thought. The assumption that you could jump on a ferry and Be in Liverpool in a few hours that you could jump on a train and be in Belfast in a few hours. The That just ended up kind of abruptly on December 31st. And now suddenly, all these new things have to happen. Was there Was there a sense that Ireland was playing a strong hand at the bargaining table as we were figuring out what this after New Year's Day world was going to look like how it was gonna work? Yeah, you know, I remember when, when, when The Brexit vote came in. There was this sense of Oh, my God. What's gonna happen on this island? You know how we're gonna deal with this and on a real sense of powerlessness, you know, because of the people in Northern Ireland have voted have been voted to stay in the European Union, Of course, but they had a vote. At least you know. Is there a part of the UK But, you know, the majority of the island is the Republican violence, which Independent country and quite rightly didn't have a vote. We're something we're looking for a vote, but we nevertheless it was like we were collateral damage in this in this completely different war that was going on between. Half of England and Andre European Union and it had huge implications for us, but we could it sort of felt at that moment like we were powerless to really affect it. On Is the degree to which are actually was able to influence events and was able to influence them. Ironically, through being in the European Union, you know the very fact that you're in the club and that you're the you're the sort of favorites child that she like. I mean, Ireland is small. It's It's relatively weak. It's 1% of the European economy. You know it, Z tiny But book it turned out that they Europeans, actually, you know, took the Irish question incredibly seriously and really pushed very hard to make sure that Ireland was and sort of isolated and in particular, as you mentioned that this this border question, which was Such a huge one for our people that that was gonna be right at the top of the EU agenda. It wasn't gonna be something that would be you know, they deal with trade a video with all these kind of economic questions, by the way, those theories border They made it one of the absolute central issues for the European Union in terms of the deal with but with the British On If if the big boys they're clashing, You know, we're just gonna be caught in the middle and our interests are not going to be looked looked out for by anybody on. I think I'm usually kind of very critical of Irish governments. That's my job, You know, But they're actually you know, there are Irish diplomacy has been really very, very effective in terms of identifying what were the big things that are not needed to get out of this. Damage limitation. How was that going to be done on guy? Think on January 1st. We did realize actually, you know what? There's nothing good about this, But from an Irish point of view, it is the least damaging outcome that we could possibly have got. It's interesting to hear you reflect on that sense of what being small. Means toe Ireland, fewer people that in New York City just a little bit more than in Los Angeles. Uh, But there's more to that story. I mean, there's a lot of history here and certainly from the point of view of people living in the Republic of Ireland, a lot of bad history, not being able to get its own way and it's relationships with London. For centuries. Not not just since 1973 did that ad. Level of complexity, a level of challenge to this that might not have been there. If Ireland was, you know, talking about cross North Sea trade with Holland or with Belgium, you know whatever it was it raised the stakes. Absolutely, you know, so so I think you're absolutely right in the way, your friend the question, you know that. Normally these things would be you know, he'd say it's regrettable, but you know, Okay, it's about money. It's about trade. These are important things, but I don't feel like existentialists use of identity, right? Nobody's gonna kill somebody over. You know whether there's there's there's a customs charge on fish, you know, might argue over in the light, you know, like angry about it, but it Z not the sort of stuff that that sort of leads to Kind of catastrophic outcomes that we've had on the island of Ireland for for for a long period. So the biggest shoot for most Irish people was. Look. How can we make sure that extraordinary achievements which actually? After all, we're joins British Irish achievements. You know, the Irish government First government worked brilliantly together. With a lot of help from from from United States. But you know the key relationship was London, Dublin. They work together to create a peaceful solution in Northern Ireland. And they built up incredible trust on do you know really kind of genuine friendship in in doing that, and it was successful. That's not without qualification. Nothing ever is, But you know, it's If you look at world history In the period since 1998 when when the Belfast agreement was signed, You know, it stands out as one of the great achievements of international diplomacy, and it's had a huge effect on the island and one of the reasons it's exactly as you were saying so. When I was a kid that you know, I grew up double If I went to Belfast where we went about faster by close because they were cheaper. I came back wearing about five layers of clothes when users have die the heat on the train because your mother would put five years of close when you tried to fool the customs officials, eh? So you wouldn't have to pay taxes because officials, of course, knew exactly what was going on. But they you know, they was but nevertheless you were stopped by customs officials. You could be stopped by the police might get on the train that, you know. There's this sense that lasted really, very long time. Because as well as you know, the custom stuff. Of course. You have the troubles. He had security stuff. You have the army. You know, there were times when You know you're crossing the border and you're stopped by armed troops who stick and machine gun into the car. You know that disappeared, you know, and it disappeared because of the peace agreement, but also then because of single European market, right, so So there's no need for for customs. There's no need for troops. So what does that mean? It means you get on the train, and I remember finding myself in but I was just about 2010 or something. I'm just gonna going up to some business about faster. I was just looking out the window. You know what I just realized? I can't remember where the border was. Actually, you know, it was like 1000 wonderful moments in your life. You realize I know it's around here somewhere. Where else For most of my life, I would have known exactly where it was because you would have any choice but snow, and that has a huge effect on people. You know it. It doesn't seem like a big thing. But What it means is that ordinary life can can restart on the island. You know, people can. They could go to school in one part that you know all over the border and live on the other side. They can. They can work. They can meet their friends. They can you know that there's a whole set of social relationships that get built up there. Just just ordinary life. But life isn't something wonderful thing. You know, when you've had its absence he really realized just just tell brilliant. This is People didn't want to lose that. You know, there was this real sense that whatever else happens with this thing, we're not. We're not going to stand for it. You know what doesn't I've got a left the Brexit tank take this away..

"Got to look like. So having private business do it doesn't mean the low bidder gets it and everybody's going to be at risk from a safety standpoint. So Chris, that's where I went with that it could be applied. Air traffic control is a wonderful example. But you could apply what you just said to so many areas of the economy, where now government is the provider, post office, schools, healthcare and the like. Let government set the standards but not actually do the providing the providing itself. Is best left to private business. And that's my take away from your very good example of air traffic control, where we all dragging in the free market concepts behind Europe and Canada and perhaps the Far East as well. Now, Chris, There's another topic in the in the Biden plan. Well, first before we leave Biden for the minute. What is Biden's plan? You mentioned how he's going to be spending money, and you've mentioned his tax policy, which is going to be all used mentioned so far is increasing the capital gains tax with the possible detriment that it will discourage investment perhaps even move. Silicon Valley Toe Ireland where the tax rates are lower, being very theoretical. Of and we will have, in effect shopping for a lower tax jurisdiction with the profound loss to the U. S economy That may happen. Not has not A lot has been written about that. But tell us Help in the Biden plan to the extent that it has become public. How does he intend to spend to raise the money to spend the seven trillion is his plan increase the deficit? And who cares? Because I Biden will be dead when you have to pay the bill. Or does he have Ah plan such as it is to pay for it. Well, yeah, he proposes all these thieves tax increases to mailing pay for his his spending, So that's why he promises to raise the corporate income tax. Promises to raise the tax rates on on higher income individuals, although on uh that's a bit of a false promise, because with all the spending and all these promises, he's ultimately gonna have to raise taxes on everyone and I think the big fear going ahead is that the federal government's going to get so short of cash? They're gonna go toe they'll want to impose and impose a new broad based attacks. It hits everyone, either European style value added tax, which is attacked on every old consumption that everyone does or a giant new carbon tax, which is the That's sort of the trendy thing among stuff. Amongst centrists and liberal economist. They want a carbon tax that would hit all energy costs in the economy. So ultimately, all the spending and thing's gonna lead could lead dangerously to do broad based tax is on on everyone, So I think he hasn't said that directly. Although they're they're gonna They want to raise the cost of carbon, which is, you know the cost of energy on everything, but I think all these tax increases that would be really damaging to the economy. Of course, the lot hangs in the balance here with the with the two remaining seats in the U. S Senate with the Georgia election in January. I think it's Republicans really, you know, retain those two seats and Georgia the tax threat. What will be will lessen there's still a giant problem still be a giant problem of spending, though I fear that enough Republicans want to spend more money. Politicians love spending that the debt is just going to keep piling up and piling up and all the debt is a cost moved to young people on the future. It's usually unfair and I'll end with this. There's something that people often don't think about. With all those dead. The federal government's accumulated 20 trillion debt. It is all a cost. Move forward on the young people in the future, and the government has had all these trillions of dollars of extra stimulus bill this year to supposedly fight the recession and the like, But people forget that young people in the future will have their own crisis. America will have you know we may have wars or military challenges down the road. We may have other health crises or natural disasters down the road. So young people of the future are gonna have their own disasters to pay for, and we're asking them to pay for our disasters of Well by moving all the costs. Dead onto them. It's totally It's incredibly unfair what we're doing with all the debt moving this cost forward. So to me that you know this is all a moral issue as well as an economic issue. It is a profound moral issue and one that has never addressed when politicians will give lip service to reducing the deficit. You do hear the phrase it's become so almost hackneyed. We shouldn't saddle future generations with the debt yet no politician. Ever ran on a platform of reducing the debt. The that used to be AH, bedrock of conservative Republican Party planks their platform but no more. And there is nobody left to run who runs on a platform off? Living within our collective means Now, the answer. Ask as up, Chris said, is not raise taxes and then we're living within our means. Of course, raising taxes will have a long term damaging effect. It'll kill the Golden goose. It'll kill the economy. As you tax the producers and everybody and all of a sudden will be a housing shortage in gold's gold somewhere as there's no more room to move two golds Gulch to get away from the high taxation if you're a producer, so that's that's the long range prospect. Now, Chris, you have mentioned something that is one of my Very favorite. Tax discussion concepts, and we didn't discuss this when we paid for the show, but I'd like to just mention it and get your quick thoughts You mentioned. Biden's plan is, among other things to raise the corporate income tax. And it is it is bedrock core principles. When anybody says Let's tax the rich, They say Lex tax American corporations. That's like the placeholder for tax the rich and this almost no public discussion anymore. But Chris, there's about to be. If you and I having this conversation constitutes of public discussion. We're going to have a very short public discussion. On the the sophistry off thinking. If you tax a corporation, it somehow solves the problem. The reason I raised the issue is that Cooked to a corporation of business in general, I'm not just picking one corporate form. But when you tax a profit making enterprise, it becomes a cost like rent or salaries. And since businesses are determined to make a profit, they will simply build in that cost. The cost of Corporate taxation into their product, which means Corporations never pay taxes never, ever, ever. They pass along the cost in the product, which means if you tax auto companies, you're taxing auto buyers. You're taxing consumers. If you whoever you tax food cos you're taxing people who buy food and statistically..

The woman was also shouting quote. Everybody dies. It's krone or not, And I hope you bleeping die. Police were called and then the woman was arrested A passenger. Yeah, that's wild. I mean, you know, obviously, you really shouldn't do that. It is kind of amusing if you're not on the actual flight, you know, a woman getting off and coughing on everybody, and I think everybody listening right now. You can point to a family member that would do that. Whether it's an ant on uncle a mom a dad. Brother, sister, Grandpa, Grandma, you can point to a family member. Maybe not yours. Maybe your husbands your wife's family. And you can say ah, Boom. She Would do that. And we all know people that would we also know a lot of people that wouldn't But I got a a message from a friend of mine. I have a friend who was born and raised in France. And now he lives here in the United States of America, and he's at my age, but he spent his 1st 15 14, or 15 years in France. Didn't really know much English when he got here and has a slight, slight accent. If he's buzzed, it comes out, but otherwise you could never tell. He's French. So he sent me this article. And it was. You know why people just don't you know, in France, they tell you to put a mask on and you put a mask on. And there are almost no cases in France of people refusing the mask and people fighting people over mass rules. Almost zero If you look on online, they're almost zero. And if there are some there usually Americans, right, And so he's he sent me the article. And he said in your opinion Why don't people in America just all wear mass? Why is it still so combative? Like like this woman on the on the airplane? He said. Why is it Why didn when the government says, just do it? Why isn't everyone just do it? It's so much easier. And I said to him, Ah That's a guy who was not born in America. See nothing. I don't want to take anything away from the French, but you're not Americans. Americans are different from any other country in the world. When we're told to do something. We want to know why. And if that answer is not good enough, we don't do it. That's how this country was started. And that's why this country remains great. All the big tech companies air here because all the big tech companies at some point said You can't do that. What do you mean? You can't make a telephone? It's also a computer, and they're like, Oh, really? And then we did right. You can't make it on airplane that flies over the ocean without refueling. And we did and on and on and on and on. We've been told for centuries. What we can and can't do and we are different from the rest of the world. We just are. And we don't sit there and roll over and just do it because the government says to do it, We just don't mean a lot of us do right. But there are people that don't and God love him, even though I wish I was war off them, I guess right? I sometimes feel like a coward that I'm not, you know, aggressively fighting on more levels, but I am getting a little older and a little slower. Right? Those younger maybe. I don't know. I try to get along with people. But there are some instances where you know I don't but this is this country. Was built by people that that said No, you tell me why. And you show me why I should do something. Then I might And that's why this is the most powerful country in the world is filled with people who do not like to be told what to do. On almost every level, unless there's a really, really good reason, and there's really a lot of science behind it. We're just different that way and and again. It's the reason why millions of people risk their lives to come to this country. Every single year, right? There was a there was a Vietnamese family. Used to work at another radio states that we worked that here in Los Angeles and she remembers is a kid coming over from Vietnam. I think she was seven or eight at the time, and this is a horrible story. But you'll understand how desperate people are to get out of their country. They left. Vietnam went to another country and in that country, they stuck him in a steel cargo container and there it was their family and their extended family, so there's 15 people. In this steel cargo container and they were on the ocean for 14 15 16 days hotter than hell during the day, very little food. Very little water. They ran out of food. And they ran out of food and their uncle died. And guess what they did. In that metal container. They ate the uncle. And she tells a story and it's emotional about it. That's why I know it's true right and that's how desperate people are to come to this great country. It's the greatest country in the world. I love it. I make my daughter love it. My wife loves it. And we're different from everyone else. The world we're just different and I'm GDP, proud of it, and you should be too.

Nick Shifrin. I'm going to apologize for this ahead of time. The rain in Spain might have stayed mainly on the plain, but the former king has not Indira one, Carlos abdicated the throne in favour of his son six years ago. Why's he now fled the country. Right. He's fled the country because of a number of court investigations into business contracts and also a money laundering and tax evasion probe happening outside of Spain in Switzerland. So very embarrassing. He essentially has you know there is a $100 million gift that was given by the king of Saudi Arabia to a foundation that the king is linked to in Panama, and prosecutors are trying to figure out whether that $100 million was connected to the awarding of a contract. It's Spanish companies got to build a high speed rail link between the Saudi cities of Medina and Mecca. There's another foundation that's being investigated that's registered in Liechtenstein, and investigators are trying to find out. How did it get so much wealth? But you know, King Juan Carlos is a really interesting character. Because he's been very much a fixture in Spanish life for the last 45 years. He came to power right after the death of Franco the long time decades long dictator, But surprisingly, he actually helped usher the country into democracy. And you know, he's had a mixed record because in recent years he's had a lot of lovers and these investigations and questions about his spending, so it has now turned from not just embarrassment over him. But questions about the role of the monarchy in general because the junior coalition partner in Spain's Coalition government is a leftist party that wants to abolish the monarchy anyway and turn Spain into a republic. Nancy does anyone know where he is and what the future looks like for him? Well. The initial suggestion was that he went to Portugal. That doesn't appear to be the case, then the Dominican Republic until the foreign minister there said he was not in the Dominican Republican. Just before we went on the air. There was a report that he was in Abu Dhabi. And so the short answer is we don't know. But the possible places keep changing around the world, and even as we're on the air, we might hear of other locations because he hasn't said where he's gone. If I could just had real quickly to the point earlier about, you know his his leading the Spain towards a democracy. I think an important point that sort of trailed him throughout his tenure is because He had come in at a time when the monarch who is quite weak, I think there was sort of a baked into that original transition towards democracy. And unwillingness to really look at the monarchy and its spending habits because there was such a fear that any sort of close examination could could undermine a fragile state and one that even now there are questions over it. And I think what we're studying Sesay unraveling that it started in 2008 during the financial crisis when the mark he was spending so much money, and this is a continuation that so it's an interesting shift that comes From when he came in, and there was sort of an unspoken rule that you didn't examine the monarchy to now. Well, let's turn toe Ireland. There's a lot to say about the Nobel Peace Prize winner, John Hume. Tributes this week poured in from presidents and prime ministers. The economist says the lawmaker from Northern island it more than anyone else to help bring an end to decades of sectarian bloodshed. India right remind us why John, who mattered so much to so many people write well. He was seen at a time when Ireland was going through the troubles, you know, meaning the conflicts between the Protestants and the Catholics in Northern Ireland, which did then and still belongs to great Britain. He was seen as a figure who actually was above it, all willing to make peace not based on sectarian concerns between Protestants and Catholics. He did win the Nobel Prizes. You said he was one of the architects of Northern Ireland's peace process in the 1998 Belfast agreement and a CZ you mentioned tributes have come in from the pope, the Dalai Lama, several U. S and U. K president's because of Corona virus. They were limited to only 120 people masked up in the cathedral for the ceremony. But he really was seen as someone who focused on unity and peace and was able to put those ideas above narrow Sectarian concerns were to give some idea about how revered he was by his own people. There's a mural in his hometown dairy that Puts his image alongside Martin Luther King Jr. Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela, and this is part of a speech he gave after he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1998. All conflict is about the same thing. No matter where it is, it's about difference. Whether differences your religion or your wrists or your nationality. And the message that we have to get across that we have learned in our part of the world is a difference is an accident of birth. Difference is of the essence of humanity. And they're for respect for difference should be very, very normal and very common. But it is a first And deepest principle of real peace. President Bill Clinton talked about his persistence and unshakable commitment to nonviolent Nancy. How much has changed since the Good Friday agreement that he helped bring about? Well, I think if you look at his funeral, his his son really got it. I think the biggest change, which is The the sort of unwillingness of politicians too. Put there the interests of their nation ahead of perhaps their own party interests in one night, If you'll indulge me quote from his son, he said, Central to Dad's work was his deep appreciation of human interdependency. We all need one another. We all have a role to play. All of our roles are of equal importance. You know it during this feud only talked he mentioned his son mentioned John Lewis and Martin Luther King Jr. And they think the biggest difference you see is the absence and hunger for politicians who are willing to to put the the greater good ahead of their own personal good. You know, one reason he He lost his role as leaders, his his willingness to bring in vain and that actually led to their growing popularity over his own. And I think that's sort of his enduring legacy that he was part of a class that was willing to Publicly condemn violence and privately do the tough negotiations and all looking towards a greater good. You could feel that in his during this funeral that hunger for that kind of leadership. Mick. John Hume was seemed to be the right man in the right place at the right time when you think about it. Peace processes is having a sort of central key figure like him. How important is that? To the success of those of those movements, he quoted Martin's for King. He used to say an eye for an eye leaves everyone blind and then added, We have to start spilling sweat, not blood. On DH, so his voice as a moderate Roman Catholic as of course, a political leader, but as a person who called for moderation, who also combined the kind of tactics That one needs in order to succeed at some of these some of these movements, he publicly criticized the violence of the.

Oh, I think there's no doubt that it's the Irish culture has been bound together for many centuries by drink. But it's not unique Toe Ireland. I think if you look a defeated nations, if you look at Poland if you look at the American Indian, if you look at Ah, parts of Mexican life in the Southwest. People who have been defeated, often are granted the the luxury of destroying themselves by the conquerors, and I think Irish drinking came from the conquest of Ireland. It was not unique to to the Irish at the time. But if you have no true power you granted certain powers by The occupiers. Most of the time. Um One of them is drinking. Ah, Another thing is machismo. I think machismo is Mohr proud, prevalent under Ah, among defeated people than it is among the winners. So that I think the Irish do share something with those other people that is unique to people having lost franchises. It's being able to confront that and say, Will we let these people have a permanent victory? That leads to people saying that said, I'm not going to do them the favor of becoming a stage Irishman or a stage pole or a stage name Native American. Ah, I'm going to live my life, not perform it. Not according to their script. At least your father was a drinker. Your father was from Ireland moved to Brooklyn, where you were born. But he drank a lot when you were growing up. Did he ever give it up himself? Ah, no, he never did. I'm ah, near the end of his life. In the last five years of his life. He lived to be 80 in the last years of his life. Particularly after his hair started getting gray, which was at the age of 75. God bless him, Um He had trouble with his heart, and they put a pacemaker in the doctor forbade him. Ah! To either drink or smoke cigarettes. He went into the bleakest depression of his life, and I saw I went to the doctor. And said, Look, I think the man would rather be dead than to continue to live like this. He is so depressed by all of this, and he said, Well, Tell him he can have two drinks and three cigarettes. My father being my father expanded the franchise to five drinks and eight cigarettes and lived fairly happily until the day he left us So no, he did not. He did not stop. But he kept drinking, but not At his age and he had done of probably a lot of physical damage. It didn't take much for him to get To get wrecked him in a few drinks, and he would be gone. When you started at the post in 1960 New York had seven papers, which is just impossible to imagine now. Cities that have two papers air in really good shape nowadays. Was it like to have seven papers? It was an absolute feast and even having the seven papers we were mourning the fact that we had already lost two or three and we had lost the Brooklyn Eagle, which I used to deliver us. A kid, which had a Circulation of 300,000 was just serving the borough of Brooklyn that was gone. There was a paper called the Bronx Home knows that was gone. Ah! I think the city was a better city because we had seven newspapers there was set meant there was seven different teams of people keeping an eye on the politicians and watching what the cops did. And And and feeding the general sense of debate in the city. Ah, for newspaper man. It was an enormous thing, because if you didn't have a job if you didn't like the job you had at the New York Journal American, You could go down the street and go work for the post. Somebody would always hire a good craftsman. So there was a kind of security in the work that is missing now for a lot of people. But more than anything else, it was that you had seven distinct Ah, ah, points of view on almost everything in the city that simply has not been. Replaced by television when you started working at the post Do you think that the newspaper had a different place in its readers lives than newspapers have in the lives of readers today? Oh, I think that's I think lamentably. That's true because television, although it was strong in 1960 had been strong for most of the decade. Television had not become the all ruling version of information and entertainment. That has now become Ah! The respect almost worship of the printed word that came from the immigrants. Ah, For example, if you think that the daily forward, which is a Yiddish daily, once had a circulation of 250,000. And that its Children were reading The New York Post. The Children of those readers were reading The New York Post. You know that you were dealing with generations of people who know that the words would set them free. They worship newspapers, columnists. With the biggest stars in New York, not television people, television people read news. It was an enormous amazing period. Ah to be young and be alive in a city like New York. Pete Hamill, recorded in 1994 after the publication of his memoir, a Drinking Life. He died yesterday at age 85. After we take a short break.

This is fresh air. Local election officials in.
"toe ireland" Discussed on AM 1590 WCGO
"You can also follow me on Twitter at at Daily dirt nap. I want to talk about taxes. I've been talking about taxes a lot. There's you know, a 63% chance at this point that Joe Biden is going to get elected. There's in before you call in and yell at me for saying that Joe Biden is probably gonna get elected. It's just it's just for the betting markets are it may or may not reflect my personal opinion. My personal opinion is that You ever noticed how I look in a basketball game like a college basketball game? One team is up at 20 points at halftime. And then it always ends up going to O T. You know, I think it's going. I think that's going to narrow significantly. I think the debates are Biden's weakness, and I think it's going to be close going into the election, But I think a 63% chance of Biden getting elected. Is probably about right. And if you're talking about the chance that Biden is going to get elected, then you have to look at some of his tax proposals. As you probably already know. Taxes are going to go up. But your life Well, they're not going to go up on me. So I'd Oh, I care. Well, they will eventually go up on you. I can assure you of that they will eventually go up on you. But either way, it's not. You know, everybody seems to be OK with raising somebody else's taxes. And I think we've kind of reached the logical limit of that. Although Biden, you know, sort of proposes to extend that even further. But he is going to be raising taxes by a lot and let's talk about some of his proposals. Number one. He wants to raise the corporate tax from 21% to 28%. Okay? Now the corporate tax Used to be a 35% For years. Obama Bush I mean, just for a long time, the corporate taxes at 35% and there was some jurisdictions in the world like Ireland, For example, in Ireland, the corporate taxes 10% okay. So when Ireland lowered its corporate taxes to 10% all this business flooded toe Ireland in Ireland enjoyed a sustained economic boom. His last its last 20 years, and they're still it's still a hot economy, and the main reason is they lowered their corporate taxes to 10% now. In terms of 21% 21% is about average in developed economies. It's actually not low 21% is about average when it was 35%. It was the highest in the world. That's right. The U. S had the highest corporate taxes in the world. Japan had the second highest now Japan has the highest So one of the reasons why we wanted to lower the corporate taxes because we were losing US companies to places like Ireland places where there were lower taxes. It's about tax avoidance, okay? And people talk about Amazon and tax I. Amazon doesn't pay any tax and Amazons Amazons effective taxes are pretty low, but there are on ly there following the rules, right. So it's not even about the actual raid. It's aboutthe loopholes and closing loopholes and stuff like that. G. Once had a department of 800 people in financial engineering, trying to figure out how to avoid taxes. You lower tax rates, all of this tax avoidance goes away. And you actually end up collecting Maurin tax. But the biggest part of Joe Biden's tax plan. He is with Social Security taxes, okay? So we all if if you have a job, you pay payroll taxes, whether you're self employed, or you had your w two employees pay payroll taxes. You pay payroll taxes on the 1st $137,700 in income, and that 6.2% for Social Security and 1.4% for Medicare. Although there's no cap on Medicare, you pay Medicare taxes on all your income. So 6.2% for Social Security. Basically, what Biden wants to do is He wants to impose payroll taxes on people making Mohr than $400,000 a year. Okay, so we're going to charge payroll taxes 6.2% on the 1st 137,000 income. We're not going to charge payroll taxes up until 400,000 and then we're gonna charge 6.2% after that. Now self employed people. Pay both sides of the tax. Okay, so I'm self employed. So there's something called self employment tax. I don't pay 6.4% 6.2%. I paid 12.4%. So if you think about it this way, and also, Biden wants to raise the top tax rate from 37% to 39.6%. They take 39.6% and this is going to be a new marginal rate. It's going to be a new, higher marginal rate. You take 39.6% at 12.4% and now you have a 53% marginal income tax. That kicks in at $612,000. If you add in state taxes, state taxes in some states are very high in South Carolina there 7% In California. They're 13% in New York City there 13% if you take 53% plus. 13%. That's 66%. You're paying a 66% marginal tax rate. If you throw in Medicare taxes, that's another 3%. That's 69% taxes. So I don't. I don't think you need me to tell you this but 69% taxes and by the way in most states, it's going to be above 60%. 69%. Taxes are going to discourage people from working right, actually had an economics professor in grad school. With the great man Louis Lau, Chinese economics professor and I think he was kind of a right wing guy, and he stood up in front of class because if you go back to the seventies, when Jimmy Carter was president The top tax rate was 70% and it kicked in at $700,000 in income. And this professor, mainly we allow, he said. In a very thick Chinese accent, he said. If you tax me is 70% I don't work. I stay home. And that is what's going to happen. It's going to discourage business formation. Anybody who's starting a small business who knows that there are only going to be able to keep 31 cents on the dollar for what they make. Nobody is going to sign up for this, okay?.
