The philosophy of the democrat party – their need justifies the seizure of the products of someone else’s life – is no different than it was when they were owning slaves, they are just using third parties and flowery language to attempt to justify it. And failing. It truly isn’t need, it is their whims or their desires.
The Democrat party today is the party of both victims and victimizers. Everyone is both a victim and victimizing someone else to try to get ahead.
Instead of free people, making free decisions it is the party of a dog-eat-dog philosophy where everyone’s life and property is held only at the whim of someone else.
Let’s parse “I can’t imagine the Supreme Court wants to give the wealthiest people on earth billions in tax cuts”. There is no annual billionaires wealth tax or taxes on unrealized gains yet. Wyden says that NOT TAXING PEOPLE is a tax cut? Is anyone paying attention to his stupidity? So every year that 100% of your income is not taxed, you got a tax cut. There are grave constitutional issues for imposing taxes on unrealized gains, does anyone in DC care?
Is he the dumbest person in the Senate? Perhaps, but there is plenty of competition.
It won’t be long until this impacting “a few hundred” people is “a few hundred million people.” Remember the $400,000 cutoff is where one is rich or not.
“Build Back Better” is an Orwellian name if ever there was one. The Democrat party and many of their voters believe that your life and the products of it may be disposed of at their whim. The same justification that led to their defense of slavery, just in the third party now: it isn’t “we need it”, it is “someone else’s need justifies taking the hours of your life.”
p.s. If you want to destroy a country and liberty, debase the currency. The degree to which the currency is debased will be proportional to the destruction. MMT is insanity masquerading as economics.
Do you have a right to your own life or not? For centuries the Democrats and their conspirators have said no. Look at the slaveowners. Look at their advocacy for socialism, fascism and communism or other forms of authoritarianism?
Look at the regressive’s destruction of the constitutional protections over the last century. All to get to the point where people will vote themselves into socialism’s slavery.
“She was a fighter. She had a hard life and her attitude always was … basically, all Americans who were not around for World War II were basically spoiled brats.” – Dorene Giacopini on her 105 year old mother’s – Primetta Giacopini’s – views after Primetta passed away in 2021
Right now Fauci, the NIH, CDC etc are saying one doesn’t need a booster for 6 or 8 or more months after the 2nd of the mRNA shots. This is completely inaccurate and no supported by the data. The data from Israel and other places is showing that one needs a booster within 5 months of the second mRNA shot. And they are not recommending them for everyone.
Mark my words, within 6-8 months the CDC, NIH, Fauci and crew will be changing the recommendations to having a booster within 5 months of the second shot and it will be for everyone. Perhaps less than 6-8 months.
Right now it suits the powers that be in DC and the WHO to minimize the number of people getting boosters.
The break through cases on the shots will increase after the 4-5 month timeframe and the current advice will be shown to have been lies or – charitably – bad advice.
One can not post this on Twitter or Facebook because they are covering for the tech oligarchs which are supporting the current misinformation coming from the CDC, WHO and Fauci and the rest of the administration.
“Do you think that General Patton was woke? I don’t think he was too woke. I think he was the exact opposite. You know what woke means? It means you’re a loser. Everything woke turns to shit. Okay, it’s true. It’s true. Look at what’s happening,” Trump said to large applause.
“The press is prepared, and striving to prepare the public, for American shooting in the Far East,” according to a November 1941 memo sent to Henry G. Morgenthau Jr., the Secretary of the Treasury. (from Countdown to Pearl Harbor)
If anyone thinks that the US press was truly free and without an agenda, they are incorrect. The vast majority of the US press has been on the side of authoritarians – whether fascist, socialist, or communist – for more than a century.
Liberty is not the byword of the press in the United States, power and influence is.
Pitbull rails against Castro and communism in Cuba and yet supports the authoritarian party in the US. Supporting the Bernie, Biden, Hillary side is supporting the same bankrupt philosophy that the democrat slave owners in the old South had and that they are attempting to impose on people today. A socialist dictatorship that AOC and that crowd advocate for is no better than that in Cuba.
Whether socialist, communist or fascist, the end goal is the same. No freedom and someone else controlling you and your life.
Socialism is the gateway drug to communism. The sooner that Pitbull realizes that, the better.

Regarding Gamestop, WSB etc. I strongly believe in the power of p2p/distributed groups and projects. You know the open source kind, the kind that started in January 2009 (I don’t want to run afoul of the mod bot, you know the one), the kind that since they are p2p are not subject to big tech control and censorship. Instead of having to entrust your money with some expensive third party running a hedge fund, you have a distributed hedge fund (or mutual fund or ETF) here.
Instead of one person saying “our fund is going to buy this” you have a group saying, “I like this because of X, buy it if you agree.” Hedge funds will often bet against each other, here the distributed hedge fund has more money and power to bet against the centralized hedge funds and can win.
This is one such p2p group. This isn’t necessarily a fight between Wall Street and Main Street, but a much wider fight that is being repeated in lots of other areas in the US and around the world. This is a power play between the so-called elites and so-called non elites in many fields from here in the market to politics to people (e.g. the CA gov) hiding information because he thinks people are too stupid to understand it. This is the same type of fight between those who want one set of rules for some people and a different set of rules for the powerful elites. Freedom depends on a single set of rules for everyone, and these so-called elites are fighting back. Put the screws to them. Market shorts are important in the market, but this is the counterbalance and should be used more often.
My concern is that like Discord, will Reddit allow WSB to continue there? If not, a purely distributed p2p option would be useful. Encrypted too.
