Talk about something having disparate impact in a racist and sexist fashion. It is hitting whites and males at a much higher rate than others.
If this passes – taxing unrealized capital gains for billionaires, it won’t be long until it is applied to the rest of us. The income tax after all was only supposed to hit “only the richest taxpayers.” Sounds like now with the billionaires for huge change in taxing authority.
Envy, greed, money and power are fantastic motivating factors for politicians and their voters.
It will also be rife with fraud for people who can afford it since regular people won’t be able to hire legions of accountants to value private entities, artwork and the like.
The Democrat’s policies are really division, exclusion, and inequity. It is not diversity, inclusion and equity.
Dividing people by skin color, gender, and county of origin. Exclusion of people from various activities based on skin color and gender – multicultural centers that exclude people who have lighter skin, for example. Inequity by treating some people as more equal than others – some people have to be masked and vaccinated to take part in activities, others do not. Some people have to obey the law, others do not. In short, everyone is equal, just some people are more equal than others.
All this is done to engender hate and envy to amass power to themselves.
The Democrat party leadership hasn’t changed its strips since the Civil War, they are just more adept at hiding their true goals.
Talk about “aid and comfort to the enemy”. Where is the civilian control of the military? This is outrageous. What do the Chinese, Russia and other states think about a rogue military?
Yellen’s comments about the U.S. pushing to end global “race to the bottom” tells you all you need to know about her authoritarian, fascist philosophy. When a US official tells you that a monopoly is a good thing, you know that they want control, not liberty. Competition between countries and their tax systems keeps people free and countries honest. Freedom requires competition and the authoritarians worldwide don’t like it.
Yellen is proposing a “race to the bottom” herself where there is one huge monopoly that she and totalitarians like her control everyone and everything in order to leech of the 99% on the bottom.
Yellen and her cronies ignore the fact that only people pay taxes. They stir up envy and hate in order to divide people so that they can then conquer them. Then they use their envy and hate to get people to vote themselves into higher tax regimes so that they can take their cut in money and power.
The statists want monopolies that they can control, and this is a huge step into getting it.

“[If] freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” George Washington
Attorney General Bill Barr will resign in disgrace, 12/23/2020 after helping to orchestrate the pre-election coverup of the Hunter and Joe Biden DOJ investigation.
Hey, AG Barr, and the rest of DC, we are not children. Hiding information like Fauci, and Jerome Adams and others have done is despicable. People deserve the facts, they don’t need to be managed.
The nanny state, deep state, inside the beltway idiots want to keep the voters, ignorant, uninformed, and dependent in order to maintain their own power. Completely disgusting.
Is Barr like that? Hiding vital information from the voters makes it seem that way.
If at any time since Robert Bork the democrat party had really cared about a true hearing and not an attempted character assassination, I’d have thought the hearings were worthwhile. Given the last 30-35 years hearings of a republican nominated candidate are pretty much useless, they should cut them out and just vote. The republicans (for better or worse) don’t treat democrat nominees like this.
Don’t give the the democrats a platform for demagoguing.
“I think a study of the map would be advisable for all of us because the Hitler method has always been aimed at a little move here and a little move there” – Franklin D. Roosevelt to reporters,
It is somewhat funny to hear FDR say that, because it is the same philosophy he was using with regard to accumulating power. A little more here and a little more there and pretty soon you go from a country with a Constitution that has enumerated the powers of the government to one where you have enumerated liberties.
So I think a study of the Constitution and historical documents would be advisable for all of us because the collectivist authoritarian method has always been aimed at a little move here and a little move there and pretty soon you are no longer in a free country, but a dictatorship, surveillance state.
The totalitarian left, whether socialists, communists, or fascists pretending to be anti-fascist, is coming closer to power in the United States today. If Joe Biden wins in November and the democrat party takes the Senate and keeps the House, a laundry list of items will be immediately on the agenda:
- Eliminating the filibuster. Sen. Schumer has already stated eliminating it is on the table. This will turn the Senate into the House without any need for consensus. and provide the opportunity for all kinds of mischief, including the following.
- Giving citizenship to around 20 million people who have entered the country illegally, after blocking all President Trump’s attempts to fix the issue over his first term.
- Packing the Supreme Court by adding additional seats.
