Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:
If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
—Ronald Reagan, 1981

Dems Pushing a VAT? – HOLLY NOTE: Australia, where Stan and I lived for years, has a VAT. It is a nightmare, especially for small business owners, start-ups and those with think profit margins. Their VAT regulation book is inches thick and companies usually have to hire at least one employee just to keep up with the minutia, changes, compliances and paperwork. Take a deli for example. If someone buys a ham sandwich, its tax rate is different than if someone bought a loaf of bread and sliced meat at the same counter. Additionally VATs have a tendency, once in place, to creep upward, never down. Check these countries' VATs.

Canada’s One of NATO’s Biggest Deadbeats, But with Trump, We Won’t Get Away With It Anymore – HOLLY NOTE: This editorial makes 2 very important points: 1) Obama and Bush 2 were perceived by the world as weak leaders; Trump is not. 2) In NATO (and elsewhere) America shoulders the financial burden way more than its fair share and carries other countries that can well afford to pay their equitable part. As Trump has made clear, we are done letting every other country suck the U.S. financial teat dry. Hence, new FAIR one-on-one trade deals. If no President has had leadership skills and courage to press the issue, why would they change? In this article, Canada admits they've let America carry the NATO defense expense load because they could. No wonder the world's newspapers are full of ire for Trump. Not only is the gravy train finished for illegal immigrants but for hanger-on countries as well.
