    Poor rich people...

    The 100 richest Americans would hand over more than $78 billion of their personal fortunes under a wealth tax proposed by progressive lawmakers.

    "In 2020, the richest 100 Americans added $598 billion to their wealth, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The tax would capture 13% of that increase.

    Minnesota Bill Would Criminalize Trans Athletes Using Female Locker Rooms

    [​IMG]
    A Minnesota lawmaker has introduced a bill that will ban transgender athletes from participating in women’s sports and criminalize biological males using female restrooms, locker rooms and shower rooms.


    Republican State Rep. Eric Lucero’s bill, HR 1657, asserts that “male” is defined as a person with a “heterogametic sex chromosome pair consisting of one X chromosome and one Y chromosome.”

    The Hill reports that “the bill would ban transgender students who identify as women from trying out for or participating in female-only school sports. It would make doing so a petty misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $300.”

    “The bill would also prohibit a transgender student from using communal areas such as restrooms, locker rooms and shower rooms that are designated female. It would make doing so a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in prison and a $1,000 fine,” the report continues.

    Mississippi has already passed a law banning transgender athletes from girls’ or women’s sports at schools and universities.

    Wisconsin also had legislation introduced on Tuesday that would ban transgender athletes from participating in girls’ and women’s sports from kindergarten through college.

    It's ridiculous that a law is needed to defend good old common sense!

    Ergo the reason many of the BIG tech corporations have shunned 45. Corporate greed. Don't kid yourself for a minute, BOTH Dems and Repubs have the same motivation: MONEY, the almighty dollar!

    Donald is afterall, the CEO and sole owner of the corporation which bears his name. The globalists simply didn't want to have his shingle hanging on every corner - and his seat on the 'throne of power' was simply too much of a threat to their bottom line. Whatever excuse he could conjure up to win the hearts and minds of Americans was nothing more than a ruse to secure it ...and profit in so doing. :greedy:

    Tax cuts for the rich, stimulate the economy.
    Democrats waste our taxpayer money.

    They’re the worst. “Spend Spend Spend.”

    I don't think that bothered them so much. What bothered them was:

    1- That he was unpredictable. They prefer someone more malleable, willing to sell-out, and obedient, like what they have now. A President Harris would be their dream.
    2- That he would inadvertently be open about the kinds of things globalists prefer to be quiet about.

    And in this, he was not even nearly as bad as Biden - so I don't see your point. However dishonest Trump may have been as a businessman, Biden was all of that while posing and being paid as a representative of the people. If Trump stabbed his business partners in the back, Biden stabbed Americans and the nation in the back. And has been rewarded for it.

    All 40+ years of trickle down has done is consolidated wealth in fewer hands and added trillions to the debt.

    Tax cuts never pay for themselves. They just make rich people richer at the expense of future generations.

    At least the Democratic party wants raise taxes and pay for spending. The GOP wants to just spend and heap that debt burden on the backs of future generations.

    If you want a real stimulus give money to people who have to actually spend it, not hoard it.

    LOL. "Torture".

    If that is the definition of torture then many people in prison are being tortured daily.

    You remember when Bush and his GOP cronies tried to say waterboarding is not torture, but this is. (y)

    He makes Journalism great again.
    The only one who asks Jen “Circle back” Psaki tough questions. All other journalists; so soft.
    180 degrees; Journalists arent **** 🐍

    What changed? It’s like they dont want to find ways to make Biden look racist from nothing.

    An unpredictable loudmouth...blatent BS like it was some kind of truth, like, I never understood wind...and nobody knows windmills better than me blah blah blah. Together with the kind of cronies I used to drink with in Yakuza bars, like Giuliani, who most likely has some debts to pay back to his mob bosses, not to mention Bannon and his pardoned crew (back in business instead of behind bars). Like T said, the world is a very small place, and America only a patch of land on it, why not co-operate with others? We never got to see the full meal deal (thankfully) had he been re-elected.

    It's true, Biden is more candid, especially now due to his deteriorating mental condition and definitely has personally benefitted from a lifetime of Washington politics. They pay them well enough. He wouldn't have been my choice, but of the two candidates running, def the better choice for prez. I would've preferred seeing someone younger and more progressive, yet he does have his moments of clarity and is more cordially disposed to working with others, plus much of his agenda is backed by science not against it.

    Strangely, just like conspiracy theories, there are often nuggets of accuracy hidden in the lies.
    With misinformation, you put in some partial truths that give it a little bit of credibility, then throw in garbage.
