This just brings to mind the ending of The Magic Christian.
Maria, I need you to launder and iron these bills! Well get to it! No worse than cleaning babies!
Wow! Thank you Mr. Trump. You REALLY SHOULDN’T HAVE!
the trumpster is in office only for himself and his buddies. Is there anyway we can tell him he is fired?
Republicans have made the one per cent very happy.
In January, congress will start working on a plan to take back the $4.00 cost of living raise that I will be getting next year on my Social Security.
The problem is that trickle down has already proven EVERY time that it has been tried that it doesn’t work. It won’t this time either and logically never could. If you have a guy that mows your lawn and he’s doing an adequate job, then you get a raise at work, do you hire another guy to help him, or give him more money? Neither will the 1%ers. They will only hire more people if they are able to sell more product than they are able to produce with the current staff. The only way to increase demand so that more product is needed is to put more money in the hands of those who will actually spend it, instead of stashing it in the Caymans. So, give the money to the Middle Class. Trickle UP will work, always has and would benefit everyone, including the 1%ers.
Noticed that the hired help is colored as well.. nice attention to detail.
Pretty close to reality.
The son looks like one of these guys:
When you think you can do anything, you WILL do anything. Power corrupts, and there’s little feedback on billionaires save what they choose to accept. Many will only accept outright adulation.
It used to be that there was a reasonable and rational conservative position, which included the ideas that (a) the government shouldn’t go intio debt, (b) tax policy should not be used to redistribute wealth. I don’t agree with these positions, but they are not crazy, and they deserve debate. But conservatives seem to believe that (a) they should add 1.5 trillion dollars to the debt, and (b) tax policy should redistribute wealth from the poor and middle class to the wealthy. In addition, they are using the added debt to attack fundamental parts of the social safety net, thus putting the poor and middle class even more at a disadvantage. Is this what conservative means today? I guess so. But old fashioned conservatives would be horrified by this tax bill.
Republicans have tried to destroy America’s social system since the 1930’s, now they are succeeding unless you vote them out of office.
I don’t know if there are Constitutional impediments, but this latest bill has me promoting a wealth tax. 5% on every dollar of assets over $1 billion, each year. Just think of it as a variation on the dynasty tax (estate tax), which the Republicans just repealed.
the good life
That $9 per hour isn’t going to help with a place to live and food to eat, as prices skyrocket, the rich will give us a few extra pennies and expect us to be grateful.
