Yep, Vermont Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders rants about folks paying their “fair share,” Obama as well. One has to ponder, what exactly is this “fair share”? Who determines what that amount is and does it have a ceiling or it is a relative number, according to the greed of progressive socialists.
I still find it rather amusing, and also disconcerting, the conversation of one Fox Business News commentator extraordinaire, Neil Cavuto, with Keely Mullen of the “Million Student March.” When you have a few minutes, take a gander at this exchange.
Keely states, “there will always be a one-percent.” OK, but that available number is decreasing in one European country, led by an avowed socialist Francois Hollande. But the reason is not just about economic policies.
As reported by the International Business Times:
Rising tensions in France, especially in Paris following a series of Islamist terrorist attacks in 2015, have spurred an exodus of its super-wealthy citizens, a new report on migration trends of millionaires and high-net worth individuals across the world reveals. The report warns that other European countries, including the UK, Belgium, Germany and Sweden “where religious tensions are starting to emerge”, will also see similar trends.
According to the report, Millionaire migration in 2015, France topped the list of countries with maximum millionaire outflows as it lost 10,000 millionaires, or 3% of its millionaire population. Among the cities that saw maximum millionaire outflow, Paris, was at the top – losing about 6% of its millionaire population or 7,000 millionaires in 2015 to the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and Israel.
“The large outflow of millionaires from France is notable – France is being heavily impacted by rising religious tensions between Christians and Muslims, especially in urban areas. We expect that millionaire migration away from France will accelerate over the next decade as these tensions escalate,” the report warns.
After France, the list of countries ranked by millionaire outflows includes China ranked second, followed by Italy, India, Greece, the Russian Federation, Spain and Brazil in descending order.
So the global Islamic jihad is not just costing human capital, but it’s also affecting financial capital as well. One has to consider if this trend will follow from France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden and Norway across the English Channel to Britain herself. Based upon a story we recently shared, the NUTS of the National Union of Teachers (NUTs) in jolly ol’ England are already setting the stage for British wealth to depart the once mighty island nation.
I just have to wonder, how much in revenue lost do these Islamic jihadist attacks cost? We can never rectify the loss of lives all across these nations — which is, without a doubt, the greatest loss. But can it be that through the migration of these millions of “refugees,” nations are bleeding due to increased social welfare cost, along with the loss of a prime tax base who has the ability to relocate.
So what about the poor schmucks who have no choice, cannot just pick up and depart? What will these host nations do about the abhorrent security situation? What about the single young women who must fear being on the streets at night when these roving bands of military-aged Muslim males terrorize and disrespect them — by way of sexual assault and rape?
There are so many unrealized costs that this Islamic jihad is bringing forth against Western civilization, and I haven’t even figured the law enforcement man hours.
So what should we do? It appears there is a vicious pincer movement happening with progressive socialists and Islamo-fascists and their adverse affects upon our society. How do we reverse this trend?
First of all, we must reevaluate our immigration policies. I stand by my assertion that single, military-aged Muslim males need not apply — stay home and fight for your country. We need to do better in restraining immigration from any country on the terrorist watch list or a known harbor for Islamic terrorists. We need to review our student visa programs and begin to, first, get a handle on those who are in our county, and second, tighten controls and granting of those student visas. We should certainly improve our fiancee visa program — Tashfeen Malik should have NEVER been able to enter America.
Margaret Thatcher once stated, “one of the inherent problems with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” It appears that now, due to the global Islamic jihad, people are running with their money away from not just socialist economic policies — to secure their financial security. They’re also — literally — running for their lives, their survival.
What a damn shame, especially when you consider how grandiose these Muslim sheiks, princes and such live in their homelands, refusing to assist their brethren. And then they come to our nations and live these lavish lives flaunting their wealth before our own eyes — while their brethren kill and maim us.
This must end!
