Obama Admin quietly kills embarrassing metric [Darleen Click]

King Barry I is just trying to protect us from troubling information

As the din of America’s falling headfirst over the fiscal cliff reverberates across the nation, the Obama administration is quietly killing a key economic metric that tells how, and how many, people are voting with their feet. Since 1991 the Internal Revenue Service has been compiling statistics on filers’ addresses, which the agency’s Statistics of Income division uses to show who is moving into and out of every county and state in the nation. As you’d expect, the IRS also knows the aggregate income levels of those who move. So the movements of the most fundamental productive components of the economy — taxpayers — can be analyzed by journalists and economists, or could until now.

The IRS and the U.S. Census Bureau (which provides technical support in reporting tax migration data) have not made an official announcement as to why the program is being discontinued. So we are left to speculate why such vital economic statistics suddenly got canceled.

  1. well duuuh

    they can’t afford to keep track of shit like that anymore. The IRS has got to pour all of its resources into getting Obamacare up and running.

  2. Red state run? Nah, nothing to see here…

  3. i bet you even food stamp doesn’t move to a high-tax hellhole state like illinois after he finishes raping the holy shit out of our battered and bleeding little country

  4. He has that mansion in Hawaii to go to, right?

    Taxes are really high there, too, but they’ll figure out a way to make sure he doesn’t pay them.

  5. silly cranky, the avoider-in-chief will stick to his pattern. Obama will find a way for someone else to pay his taxes.

  6. Darleen, I read that and somehow I think of “Springtime for Children” when Hitler receives the report about the battle.

  7. *Springtime for Hitler

    Doh.

  8. “SAN PABLO — As the buzzer sounds to announce the substitution, a handful of Mission College basketball supporters chant: “Gabbi! Gabbi! Gabbi!”
    Most of the 50 or so onlookers in the dingy, yellow-tinted gym briefly look up from their chili-cheese nachos and smartphones, and then back down. A few whisper and point at No. 42, marveling at her size.

    It was the debut of Gabrielle Ludwig, and at 6 feet 8, 220 pounds, with tattoos on her arms and legs, she stands out in the Contra Costa College gym. At 50, the Fremont resident is about three decades older than her Santa Clara junior college teammates and opponents — and much taller.”

  9. If I had to guess? I think Vital Economic Statistic slipped and fell and concussed itself, so it won’t be available to testify to the IRS for the forseeable future.

  10. I think I’m more puzzled at why we’re letting fifty-year-olds with any previous history in basketball join a team and play.

    Eligibility has nothing to do with your physical sex and everything to do with your experience with the game.

    Plus, as a friend pointed out when I linked him that, SRS and HRT will not replace a male skeleton and male muscular development. She’s still physically a man playing with a bunch of much smaller women.

  11. Just another fact our leftist friends no longer have to deal with.

    So close to Ameritopia now!

    “I think I’m more puzzled at why we’re letting fifty-year-olds with any previous history in basketball join a team and play.”

    They’re not. “She” played some college ball as a man in “her” youth.

  13. What many at the 19th annual Comet Classic did not know was Ludwig had only been a woman since July,

    Yeah, just looking at her I would have never guessed, lmao.

  14. Something else that puzzles me:

    Girlfriend Maryann Pondevida, 42, of La Palma, said Ludwig has rights like all the other players.

    If you like women, why would you want your tackle removed? Makes this guys point seem valid, to me.

    “I don’t want to see a 50-year-old man in the locker room,” Galli said

    Also the reason she was able to get her eligibility back is the State of California issued her a new birth certificate. I guess this is a Proggtards version of being born again.

  15. If anything drives home the point that the sexes are not fungible, it is “Gabbi”

    Indeed, if “gender is irrelevant” then we wouldn’t have women’s basketball/softball/gymnastics, et al at all.

    There would be just the sport and teams would be strictly on merit.

  16. If the sexes were fungible I would have had at least one boyfriend somewhere along the line. Which would have taken the “fun” right out of fungible.

  17. I think uhaul will still have data

  18. Also the reason she was able to get her eligibility back is the State of California issued her a new birth certificate. I guess this is a Proggtards version of being born again.

    okay I’m lmao

  19. “If the example I can set for the kids who are transgenders in high school, for the people who hate transgender people and for those learning to deal with transgenders, transsexuals, if they see me as a normal person and we are not the boogeyman and love life and raise kids just like you,” said Ludwig, a scientist at Roche Molecular Diagnostics in Pleasanton…

    What is a 50 year old working scientist doing being enrolled at a junior college?

  20. What is a 50 year old working scientist doing being enrolled at a junior college?

    Running for homecoming queen.

    I denounce myself.

  21. What is a 50 year old working scientist doing being enrolled at a junior college?

    Scoping out chicks in the locker room?

  22. That WAS a brilliant comment, Beemoe.

  23. Dang it, the above comes across as sarcastic. Stupid internet.

    But I’m seriously stealing that line for use later today.

  24. Congratulations to fans our new green NFC North Champions, long may they hardly blow.

  25. Although actually they’re the old green ones, too.

  26. We can talk about how much the Vikings suck too if you like, or the Chargers.

    Green Bay is the only team I have left that I want to win. At least I’ll have one round of playoffs to watch now.

  27. My computer is refusing to load that other thread at all, so I am going to just sit over here and twiddle my thumbs and think about how much my ISP sucks.

  28. The Vikes may suck (I dunno) but I’d sure like to sit and watch an end to end compilation of every play AP has carried the ball this year. Being a local, I’m guessing, has advantages those of us at a distance aren’t afforded (ignoring that being a local also entails sitting through the rest of the dreck, of course).

  29. Now the Steelers are dropping a huge steaming pile in Dallas.

    This football season went to shit for me so bad.

  30. Adrian Peterson is awesome. He has basically carried the Vikings for weeks. If they go anywhere it will be because of him.
