"Prop 38 and Prop 39 – Two additional tax hike measures, the first targeting individual taxpayers and the second targeting businesses. Rejected 73-27 and approved 60-40." That's hillarious! "No way you're gonna tax me! Oh, sure, go ahead and tax that other guy, though." Taxes for thee and not for me. There's the new America in a nutshell. Do any of the numbskulls in that 60% realize that a tax on business will get passed on as a tax on them? Probably not.

They fail to understand that the business is just going to pass the buck onto those that purchase what they "make". So prices will increase, and those that did not want to pay an increase or a tax are going to anyhow.

Many of these consumers probably figure they're not buying much anyway, and those that do buy a lot of stuff are rich anyway, so the taxes will be redistributed in their favor after all. How about those cost of living allowance increases in entitlement programs? When you're getting your stuff free from the state, the additional cost on the stuff is irrelevant.

It need not be that the cost will be passed on to the customer. Not if you can control prices, as a Socialist might. And if the customer is a union member or governmental employee or elected official, you may find them excepted. They often are, and that will happen more and more, to gain the vote from them.

A lot of people say Obama is anti-business, but there’s one part of the American economy that is delighted that he got reelected.

No, I’m not talking about bankruptcy lawyers or corrupt lobbyists, though those would be good guesses.

The real winners from Obama’s re-election are America’s gun manufacturers and gun sellers.

Not that I’ve looked at any data. I’m just basing this on the comments I’ve heard over the past few years and the up-tick in such comments in the past 36 hours.

But I’m quite confident that the overall firearms industry has profited from Obama’s tenure.
