Awful discussing going on here all right so golf star Phil Mickelson now regrets saying that he -- California over high taxes.
The -- boosted rates and now for every buck film makes 63 cents goes to the government which oddly pays for Obama's golf.
-- that has since apologized to anyone he may have upset.
But who did he upset or insults it's not like you said hey I'm leaving California because they're too many -- -- -- Everyone knows there aren't enough.
Though he didn't offend a -- -- orientation or even -- Dana.
Though Phil just invented the preemptive apology.
Could -- -- boy there could be outraged he already folded.
And that's where we are in this sad sad world a place where the successful.
Living in fear of offending people who think their success is this -- Like Glenn Berman -- Syracuse professor they have been there who blogs at Ford's.
Referring to is well he tells Phil do you have any idea how lucky you are.
-- professor do you have any lucky have any idea how lucky you are.
Looking George gig where there are no standards no win loss columns no performance reviews know grueling practices no chance for injury no criticism from the demanding audience.
No young bucks pushing you out the door.
The what -- you believe -- success comes at the cost of others because success has never been asked of you.
But that's the beauty of being a professor at Syracuse you'll never know how lucky you are.
Or how good you are either.
Did you don't have green jacket there either though they don't this is what's happened to a call for Sally -- -- -- call -- -- this is -- biology.
I he said finances in taxes are personal matter and I -- not a made my opinions on them public I apologize to those that upset or insult that.
I don't even want to finish this it makes me sad our injury is the preemptive apology the new apology.
May -- but I do think there may be a simpler reason for this but I have a feeling because he's on the tour.
And they don't like his political attention and maybe just -- the men and said.
Let's clarify this and for reasons because he wants to keep making more money I don't think he should have done at that he was right the first time yeah -- I would doubt that the court suggested he pull it back I think -- advertisers who is the people who -- paying.
The other 55 million of -- sixty million dollars he makes a year.
Probably said hey you know don't alienate half of the people or buying our products or are but that -- -- Why the tour would also tell us where they have corporate sponsors that say war wolf we don't like headlines and controversy over -- -- -- he's saying that truth data.
Tiger Woods even a group of people are leaving California for tax reasons Tiger Woods left.
NN all the when when they -- leave and they still have problem I had to raise taxes on the remaining people -- analysts say.
-- where'd everybody go out and if -- -- that governor Perry in Texas inmate and extended an invitation to come live here but she did -- a lot of businesses to get them to go there.
I really don't like.
Pretty apology apology sorry in the nation status also when he says it's -- taxes are personal matter.
Not we all know that how much he makes and and also but IRS knows exactly how much that's not personal but you must love preemptive apology.
Well that's -- do them I I I do you're right and I think that there -- certain.
Categories of wealthy people.
Who get paid an awful lot of money for doing an awfully little bits hedge fund opera measured good -- -- -- group.
And if I were -- hedge fund operator taking a billion dollars year in Connecticut because I was sort of basically ripping off the market to learn how to do it.
I would probably apologize for that if our film Anderson I think most people think they get paid an awful lot of money.
Mystery got ripping off.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Hedge funds' -- -- I thought yes do you have any basis for -- -- I think it'll be is the story as it -- it's an information they use but -- I know let's stick to the golfers are saying is that guys -- -- -- lobbed -- about what a market there has.
When he gets paid and if California wants to charge thirteen point 3% state income tax on everyone's earnings knock yourself out California they're gonna -- -- that I think Governor Perry up.
And and governor Scott up in Florida where they have zero state income tax and move the distance.
Sarkozy is leaving France because of high taxes you -- Girardi Pardo wants to lead France because by tax eventually we're gonna get it.
-- a high taxes drives people away from high tax states and countries.
In -- -- taxes our lives it's it can handle it taxes.
And what is ironic is that ultimately hurts the welfare state in the end right hurts all the programs you need -- need the individual it's not collected it and doesn't work it out.
Edit this a lot of elected action and yet I think -- that the left does at -- very good at -- at making getting you to shut up.
They they they don't want conservatives to talk that was the preemptive apology the -- doesn't -- conservatives to talk that's right.
You talk more than any group of people who you know now ice and I want the word count of the show by the way grip let's let's do get to work has as good eye -- is -- them.
I apologize for what I say for the in the I don't at this price -- -- okay all right that's good to now we should do pretty well except on the five.
We should all apologize and a block for what we're -- I apologize for.
-- what we start.
Not the things you say to -- the break those pictures of your dog.
