WAKE UP!!!! This is no longer a Fox news conspiracy, people are literally killing babies in New York! The ink is hardly dry on the new abortion bill infamously signed by Cuomo and morbidly celebrated by turning the satanic death monument pink for all the world to see. The 21st century is quickly becoming a really bad twilight zone episode nobody would believe. How is this protecting women’s health? Women can now have ‘local sourced’ ‘organic’ ‘work from home’ abortions courtesy of their pig demon boyfriend that doesn’t want anymore responsibility in his middle aged life.
Bravo communists, bravo…this is all the twilight zone you’ve been planning for decades, the long game, piling up the refuse so high maybe God himself can smell the odor, you make me sick. Try looking for this article, you need to dig around like everything else these days on 1984-net, the main stories don’t mention anything about him skating on half of his murder charges. It’s a good thing infowars and other alternative media is banned from all platforms or else people might find out about stuff like this. No no no no no no no no orange man bad orange man bad orange man bad Russia Russia Russia racist racist racist racist racist America sucks America sucks America sucks!!!!!! WAKE UP EVERYONE!!!
So far all the Democrats who have declared their candidacy for the 2020 nomination, as well old hats like Bernie Sanders and young Party members like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez all agree on is we need to tax billionaires (some saying to point of nonexistence) and use that money to fund all the trillions of dollars of additional spending they want, notably Medicare-for-All.
The problem that no one wants to talk about is that for all their wealth, the billionaires simply don’t have that much money, not on the order of what these Democrats want to spend. So here’s some math:
Medicare-for-All is estimated to cost 32 trillion dollars over 10 years, that averages to 3.2 trillion per year (it would actually be higher in the first few years as the program ramps up, but 3.2 trillion is fine for our purposes) Every billionaire in the country, when combined, have a total net worth of about 2.8 trillion dollars. That’s not all liquid assets, or even liquidable, so there’s no way you could get the full 2.8 trillion out of them, ever, but again 2,8 trillion is fine for our purposes
So we need 3.2 trillion per year, and we can get as much as 2,8 trillion but putting every billionaire in the poor house. That doesn’t even get us to December of the first year of Medicare-for-All, let alone all the other programs
Obviously we can go after the rest of the so-called “1%” (anyone with a net worth over about 10 million dollars) to keep the train rolling a little more. Now its much harder to find figures for a total net worth of the top 1% but its estimated to be about 40% of the total wealth of the country, that total is just under 100 trillion for all households and nonprofit organizations. So 40% of 100 trillion, minus the 2.8 trillion we already spent, leaves 37.2 trillion. Again these are not all liquidable assets, but we can still use this figure. It will at least get us over the next 10 years of Medicare-for-All, with about 8 trillion left, so liberally 3 more years of Medicare for a total of 13 years,
Similarly by going after the rest of the millionaires (the top 10%) we can collect about another 20 trillion, which we are going to need because we’ve only funded Medicare for the last 13 years, not any other government program. But at current spending levels 20 trillion will only last 5 years, not 13. Sure we also collect income taxes from people with less than 1 million net worth, but the portion is much smaller (the bottom 90% pays about 30% of the total income tax)
Basically the only conclusion is that if we want Medicare-for-All we need to not only raise taxes on the ultra-wealthy, but also the regular wealthy, the middle class, and maybe even the working class. Effective tax rates will need to be at least doubled across the board. If you don’t believe me look at the European states that we want to emulate with universal healthcare, their middle and working classes are taxed at about double what we pay here
All that just to fund Medicare, a program that no one who is forced to use even likes, and anyone with an option immediately abandons. Maybe we should force government employees to use Medicare first, then see if they want that everyone
And we thought Trump had balls…maybe balls isn’t the right word, bravado, hootspa, ignorance, I honestly don’t know what you call it, but the embroiled VA gov continues to turn the heat up on himself and looks like he could not be more satisfied. Maybe this guy is a next level sociopath publically auditioning for the third installment of American Psycho? The second one was disappointing, he could relaunch the entire series with an old south twist. I don’t think one politician has made so many offensive gaffs in such a short period and that covered the entire political outrage spectrum, and he’s a Democrat!!! He starts with post birth abortions, ends with African chattel slaves being indentured servants, and sandwiched in the middle is blackface, a klan hood, and Michael Jackson…wow!!! I’m speechless…but Trump’s racist right?
In the long-run, profits equal zero, and for McDonald’s, the end maybe sooner than later. In my opinion, their demise started with the dollar menu bonanza and ended with the 24 hour breakfast menu. When a company starts changing that means their current outlook doesn’t look good, so changes are made to maintain the desired profit margins. McDonald’s continues to rebrand itself in international markets to cater to local tastes, shrimp in Chinese locations etc. But in the US, revenue and customers have peaked, and for the past ten years, the innovator of fast food has struggled to meet the curent expectations set by their competitors and demanded from their shrinking, older customer base.
Despite whatever McDonald’s brass thinks, they are not Starbucks, Chikfila, or Five Guys and they never will. Apple didn’t try to be IBM, Amazon didn’t try to be Walmart, and so on. Newcomers innovate, that’s what changes the balance of power in markets. McDonald’s is failing to innovate, they’ve been playing catchup for over a decade, and it’s beginning to show. I see them quickly turning into a food tech/information company, and that’s a huge decline from the golden arch fastfood institution with the fun movie and toy promotions we all grew up not being able to live without.
People went to McDonald’s for everything but the food, maybe the fries, now there’s nothing left but the food and it’s no longer a dollar or two; that is unless you give them all your information and let them track you with their new app, then most of your food is free. If anyone bothered going to McDonald’s anymore, I’d suggest you notice next time you’re in the not-so-busy drive thru, few people pay anymore, they just get their app scanned. Not sure how well that business model looks moving forward. Sell and short Mickey D’s until further notice, be awhile before I’m back.
On February 5th, Marx’s tomb was attacked by land, and by nightfall potus excel lance Donald Trump was dropping truth bombs all over zombified western socialism. Coincidence or fate? Surprised the fakenews didn’t try to blame Trump for the attack, luckily it happened before the SOTU address. Maybe that’s why Bernie turned so red when Trump berated his religion.
Nobody deserves to have their memorials defaced after death, unless they fought for the ideals of the USA or founded the USA; if that’s the case, then their memories must be removed from all property, public and private immediately. After trillions were wasted and millions perished, the Europeans chose to welcome socialism with open arms, and now the woke U.S. millenials have been doing much of the same. During Trump’s renewed renounce of socialism, Cortez’s face summed up her generation.
What I found most alarming was the rush to admonish this hannus act perpetrated against the mankind’s darling that we all should mimic in our daily lives. Nobody killed more people in human history than Karl Marx, yet his tomb is supposed to be worshipped while monuments of Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee, William McKinley, George Washington, all must be torn down. I know the Marx tomb is in a private Victorian cemetery, but the hypocrisy proliferated by the legacy media, and the most worthless generation since the baby boomers, is suffocating us all into moral extinction.

In 2019 politics, one day you’re passionately touting a new unfettered abortion bill on a local female hosted radio show, the next day you’re defending your college yearbook klan photo; the day after, your black lieutenant governor has a newly leaked 15yo sex scandal, the day after that the attorney general admits he wore black face 40 years ago, and the day after that the Senate majority leader confesses he created the infamous yearbook page. Welcome to the modern Virginia Democratic Party! Wait a minute, wasn’t Jefferson a racist for possibly having an affair with one of his inherited slaves during his golden years, 200 years ago?
In an effort to double deflect, the controversy that started with the hypothetical of killing a child during birth has been reduced to who wore black face and when. Megyn Kelly was fired last year for admitting people wore politically incorrect costumes 40 years ago. NBC had a zero tolerance, lol, policy. The VA Democrats are not resigning, and pictures from the past are being posted on social media of liberal entertainment darlings, who also wore blackface, and received zero admonishment.
The hypocrisy is obvious, but where does the social conversation go from here? Are liberals going to continue dominating our ever-changing social norms? Or is this an inflection point where common sense, context, and accountability returns to dictate American adult behavior? I’m cynical that anything changes for the better. My prediction: this will be spun as more white racism exasperated by the current potus, the outed stars will double down on virtue signaling as a form of apology, and everyone will forget about unfettered abortion laws quietly being passed in state houses coast to coast.
