    Where do libertarians come up with this stupid crap?

    OK, we've heard your sales pitch for corporate takeovers.
    No, its privately owned. Not all National Park is fully public land. Many of the National Rivers are public / private (The Adirondack Park model). Hot Springs National Park is a town.

    What I have learned is just how much contempt and borderline hatred those who see themselves as the enlightened left have for ordinary people. They don't care if someone works his whole life for their home for their old age and then loses it to new regulations. They spew incessant accusations at them calling the bigots and ignorant, when all they are doing it living their lives and trying to pay their bills at the end of the month.

    The left doesn't help people. It tries to profit off the votes of minorities and poor people, tries to buy votes and tries to gain power. Little else. But I have also seen there isn't a niclek's difference between the elitists on the left and the elitists on the right. They both want exactly the same, but use opposite reasons for the same goals. Power. Control. Self declared superiority. Arrogance. Ego mania.
    It's not the "left" that is big on property taxes rather than income taxes, its the right. The left thinks its better to have low or no property taxes and higher income taxes to make up the difference so that you are paying taxes when you are working, and your tax burden is quite low when you are retired. Its the right that hates income taxes and instead institutes sales and property taxes so that your relative tax burden as a percentage of your income is higher the less you make.

    Take Kansas City, MO for example. I live in the area so I know how it works here. We have one of the lowest housing costs of any major metro in the United States. We also have a 1% city income tax. So if you work in the city limits, you pay a 1% tax on your income regardless of where you live. The right wingers around here have fought it for years. The reason why there is a local earnings tax though is that if the city tried to raise the revenue it needed from property taxes alone, they would have some of the highest property tax rates in the country because homes here are more affordable than most cities, thus having a 1% earning tax keeps property tax rates relatively low for seniors and those at lower income levels.

    These are extremes that have a likelihood of about a billion to one, unless it is a government entity building them. Of course governments would consider themselves exempt from their regulations.

    It's too bad there's not a real Galt's Gulch. I'd certainly go there if one existed.

    What a ridiculous extreme--about a billion to one chance. And if the dump or reactor discharged anything that spread onto a neighbor's property, their owner(s) could be sued for trespass, and for big bucks. That is unless a local, state or federal project was involved; in that case they would go ahead anyway and say "screw you," regulations or not.

    I would not like the race track, but it would be a million times less obnoxious than a land use and regulation Gestapo.

    Nobody wants a bunch of mini-Napoleans telling them what color mailbox they're allowed to put up, but I think the race track would do it in for me.
