Jesus Christ. Income of professionals - such as doctors, lawyers, architects, and accountants - practicing in partnerships will be tax-free. In a law firm, for example, the partners will pay no tax, while the clerical staff will continue on the tax rolls. But they'll cut education spending to make up the $4.5 BILLION loss in revenue.

Brilliant!

Confabulat: Let's find the stupidest people in the world and wonder why they're so poor and live in a flat dirty shiathole filled with nothing but corn and idiots for miles and miles in every direction.


My grandmother grew up there during the 40's and her parents were german immigrants,1934 actually. But anyways she was one of the most racist people I've known and I've had a bipolar guy do a full on nazi salute in my living room. The weirdest thing? She was a holocaust denier which caused quite a bit of issues with a great,great uncle of mine. He liberated one of the camps and when I was a kid I never understood why his wife would be in the kitchen sitting at the table just chatting up a storm with my grandma and he'd be sitting in the living room looking kinda pissed. All that went away when I learned the other bits of info as an adult.

/Boring,weird story sis
//Kansas sounds like shiathole even compared to southeast Ky.

The serfs should form their own corporations and be independent contractors for their former employers that way they get to pay no taxes as well.

"Who will still be paying Kansas income tax? Only three groups: 1) employees, 2) some retirees and 3) individuals whose investments are so modest that they cannot afford to create a trust or partnership to shelter their investment income."

Unfarkingbelievable.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present your GOP!

Yes, but the Job Creators will bring 10,000,000 new jobs to Kansas! Just wait!

I WANT to pay higher taxes just to piss off Republicans. Screw you, Wal-Mart, I'd rather give it to a silly gopher tortoise study in Indiantown than another pillow or clock or whatever you morans try to sell people.
 
2012-05-28 09:37:37 AM
I mean, seriously, think of one moral standing of the Republican Party.

Then think of anything good and decent you learned from Mr. Rogers.

See if you can find anything in common, at all.

Is it April 1st again? Did we modify the rules to Memorial Day to include April 1st pranks? That doesn't seem like a smart thing to do.
 
2012-05-28 09:53:57 AM
So when every doctor, lawyer, etc. moves to Kansas to open a firm and finds that there are no clients that can afford their services nor educated workers to staff their offices -- what happens?

Sure, it will be a golden age for cable advertisers who will have a metric asston of "Have you been run over by a combine? Call 1-800-CORN-LAW!" commercials to sell...for a while.
 
2012-05-28 09:57:42 AM
Wow. Arizona and Florida may get all the press, but once in a while Kansas will come out of nowhere and completely blow you away with something so massively retarded it can actually change the frame of reference.

The only motivation of a Kansan is to spite Missouri. With this, they'll be able to pull more KC metro businesses into Johnson County so that they can wag their dicks at us while their pockets are picked.

It took me a minute before I saw you had the next post down as well, so i was desperately trying to see the meaning in the blank area. I felt I came up with some good theories anyway.

The only advantage here is that this is about as close to a GOP wonderland as we'll see unless a state secededs. In 2 or 3 years we can point to a dystopian Kansas and show what GOP policies really lead to.

The stalwart and duped? Sure. Those that benefit? Sure. But the emperical evidence will probably be enough to sway those with even basic reasoning.

But the tried and true Republicans? They'll blame the fed.

Some doctors will be paying taxes until they figure it out. Income of professionals - such as doctors, lawyers, architects, and accountants - practicing in partnerships But the hospilists, ER doctors, the specialists who can't form partnerships and the research doctors working for the University Hospitals will be taxed. That will impact care in my opinion.

I understand that the author is a professor of tax law, specializing in estate and bankruptcy taxation. If this is an accurate summary of the new taxation regime, its hard to imagine Kansas sustaining itself in terms of basic services--police, fire, education, road maintenance, national guard as well as state regulatory and licensing services. Also, this means that abortion providers wouldn't pay any taxes either, except perhaps the receptionist. I'm not sure Kansans will accept all this.

spongeboob: the specialists who can't form partnerships and the research doctors working for the University Hospitals will be taxed


Research doctors will leave for elsewhere. The specialists will figure out how to form appropriate partnerships to compensate-everybody's gonna need a proctologist in KS anyway when this comes to fruition.

You would be surprised what they'll accept. The interstates are already toll roads and they've been giving unsustainable tax breaks to businesses for years in order to get them to come to Kansas. They're pretty proud of their schools in Johnson County though, so who knows what will happen if the quality starts to drop off.

Nope. It's what happens when you have Republicans in charge and a batsh*t insane Governor who used to live in a building designated as a church in DC when he was a Senator, and washed a staffer's feet, because Jesus did that for his disciples.

And do you know what the best part is? They actually had to pull back on their original tax plan because of resistance from other Republicans in the legislature who were concerned about the potential revenue drop. That's right, this is the compromise plan.

This doesn't make sense, if they are concerned about any revenue drop it shows they're not complete imbeciles and it shows they're not deliberately trying to bankrupt the state, so why do this ludicrous measure which is still slightly imbecilic and will bankrupt the state?

old news is SO exciting.
 
2012-05-28 11:51:23 AM
Well, let's think about this:

Poor people are too damn poor to pull up stakes and move elsewhere, so they'll take it in the ass just like the Kansas GOP wants them to.

Rich doctors will seriously consider moving to Kansas.

Nurses and other medical staff will say, "fark this shiat - I can get a job anywhere in the country" and move away.

You know that a bill full of tax cuts is a bad idea when you can't convince every Republican in the legislature to support that bill.
