What’s a fair share? depends on your greed, and yes, you don’t have to be rich or super-rich to be greedy. Is having a million bucks worth of assets middle class or is it the 1 percent? Live in some places and a run-of-the-mill house is over a million even efficiency apartments in some cities can be more than that. Times have changed since the people with the man buns and rings in the nose flunked econ 101.
Her email contains the same old litany about Big Pharma and how only progressives are trying to help us during this pandemic and the final solution to all problems being a wealth tax levied on “millionaires” or the 1% as though those aren’t two extremely different crowds. A few of the latter have actually contributed billions to world health.
“Republicans are gearing up to crush our Progressives & strip us of health care for all to protect the top 1%.”
Really? Now I’m not entirely sure what a Progressive is and can’t explain the large difference in the angry rhetoric used by all those who claim to be one, but I am sure that a million bucks isn’t what it used to be during the Depression when so much of these canned tirades were first penned.
I am, as a “sorta” Liberal in favor of affordable and accessible health care, but do I have to accept AOCs version with no other option lest I am pigeonholed as the enemy of the people or worse – an independent thinker with some experience?
“Did you know that people in poorer communities are being passed over for vaccines compared to people in wealthier communities?”
One thing I don’t know is that the sole or even the major factor is the malice of millionaires or the greed of “Big Pharma” I don’t know that they are being passed over and are not also resistant and suspicious, or that they lack transportation.
Actually, I see “Big Pharma” as having pulled off an unprecedented semi-miracle of advanced biochemistry here, It’s likely that the world’s population would be reduced by one-half without the advanced knowledge and technology behind it.
It reminds me of the 60s and the “whitey’s on the moon” philosophy that asked us to give the money that changed the world as much or more than anything else in history, to the poor. I feel the poor would still be with us and probably more of them without the digital technology that came out of big this and big that and of course Capitalism.
Progressives—they’re active in howling about how Biden has done nothing about the most important things like handing out money and forgiving college loans and giving free tuition. Although some of that may have merit, the man has been president for a month and no kids, we’re not there yet. The fascists still have their hands around our necks and are effectively strangling democracy and the rule of law. It’s about our survival, not you.
So, I’m happy Ms. Warren isn’t president. Neither she nor her supporters are able to handle the Trumpers or provide the leadership without the class warfare, without the fake economics. these people can’t see the difference between the middle class and the people with hundreds of billions through the smokescreen of jealousy.
They’re against democracy and in favor of theory and the inevitable authoritarianism that is needed to carry out unpopular ideas. So no, I won’t be donating the asked for three bucks. I won’t be accepting my free money either, greedy millionaire racist exploiter of the masses that I must be, and I won’t be donating it to the self-appointed champions of the masses either. It will go to Autism research.
