It would give him more credibility on the subject. Which I think he is probably lacking looking over his Biography.
> My research and teaching center on what could be called the “decolonial turn” in political thought, the moment of epistemic and political interrogation that emerges in response to colonialism and global social inequality. My first book, We Created Chávez, is a theoretically rich “people’s history” of contemporary Venezuela which locates the origins of current political dynamics in the long-term history of Venezuelan social movements, demonstrating that Hugo Chávez was not the cause, but rather the result, of a broader and more fundamental transformative process. - http://www.drexel.edu/histpol/contact/facultyDirectory/GeorgeCiccariello-Maher/
I will start taking #ClimateDisruption seriously when the people who claimed we need to actually do.
At the height of the Progressive Era our first Progressive President Theodore Roosevelt (eternally frustrated during his time in Office by his inability to spend money the Federal Government didn't have) and our first Fascist President Woodrow Wilson got the 16th Amendment passed. And so in 1913 everyone paid Income Taxes for the first time.
And the top rate: 7%. I am pretty sure Grover Norquist could live with that.
Of course, what any of this has to do with the States I have no idea. Possibly because I have never lived in a State with an Income Tax. It seems like such a weird idea to me.
As Americans realize states don't need an income tax to fit their budgets, Norquist argues, people will start to question why the federal government needs one too. "For most of our country's history we didn't have an income tax," Norquist explains. "In our 50 states, nine don't have income taxes. I think in the next 15 years it will be 25 that don't have income taxes."
Instead, we had the Tariff, at every moment at least the second most controversial government policy, and the excises. To remedy the crushing burden of the Tariff, Congress passed an income tax. That tax was declared unconstitutional -- on a reading which held that an in income tax is tantamount to a direct tax on property, so the decision is in obvious error -- so we passed the Sixteenth Amendment with broad support across the political spectrum.
Because, in all seriousness, the only people who supported the Tariff were factory owners who were greatly subsidized by it.
And so we had, by the end of World War I, taxation as we know it today. Not that Norquist would be aware or care, he's just a conservative media personality. Seriously, it would be as if Democrats really did let $movie_star write their platforms.
Oh and what was the top Marginal Rate from 1789-1861? Hint: http://taxfoundation.org/article/us-federal-individual-income-tax-rates-history-1913-2013-nominal-and-inflation-adjusted-brackets
The flag of the brave and the free,
Its stars and its stripes, forever glorious,
Gleam bright on the land and the sea.
Oh! look where the sunlight is falling,
And gilding the colors anew,
The stars and the stripes, they are calling,
Three cheers for the Red, White, and Blue!
"As many as 1 in 4 women could be sexually assaulted while in college, according to a new policy brief from University of Michigan researchers analyzing previous surveys."
"Giving voice to someone who argues that statistics on sexual assault exaggerate the problem and condemns reputable studies for engaging in “statistical hijinks” serves only to trigger obstructive dialogue and impede the progress of the university’s commitment to providing increased resources to survivors." - http://www.thehoya.com/no-more-distractions/
"But the BJS warning about the use of CSA data demonstrates the president and the vice president went too far in suggesting the “one in five” statistic applied to all college students. Instead, this oft-cited statistic comes from a Web-based survey of two large universities, making it misleading to suggest that it is representative of the experience of all college women." - http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2014/12/17/one-in-five-women-in-college-sexually-assaulted-an-update/
One of my mostly strongly-held personal beliefs is that people are entitled to their own feelings. If something offends you, you have the right to be offended.
But does Society have the responsibility to protect you from everything that might possibility offend you? I don't think so. And to even try is dangerous.
