    Not a huge AOC fan either but at least "tax the rich" is not nearly as confusing as "defund the police." At least it is direct and to the point.

    criticism is healthy, but it's key to understand what and why you are criticizing. I'd like to know why it's hypocritical to go to an exclusive event and promote a message to close the economic gap? that's exactly the audience you need to reach to gain those things in society, and to get people talking. talking to poor people is all fine and dandy, understanding their problems, but if you don't promote that message to the elite, you won't get anywhere.

    I said it was hypocritical because she was attending said event, an event strictly for the elite, so her message is tone deaf at beast and to me hypocritical. She claims to be for the little people but she's attending one of the highest profile galas for the elite.

    Spreading her message is fine but spreading that message while attending the Met Gala shows me she really doesn't get it.
    disagree. we wouldn't be talking about her message today had she not done this. 

    that's called a successful outing. 
    I disagree with this.  Success is moving the middle, not preaching to the choir..  As someone in teh middle, she didn't move me.  
    you are one person in the middle.

    And I'm very inclined to liberal arguments too.  Our local Rangers fan seems to feel the same way as me though.

    Best thing from this was

    "so if that did happen, the media is saying that donating a bunch of money to a museum is a bad thing.  That's an interesting take."

    Hahahahaha!  Killed them w that one!

    I disagree w taxing them until we are all on the same playing field.  You need diversity.  Remove that and then creativity dies, corruption blossoms.

    I don't see what is wrong with a 2% increase across the board on the rich though.  It's just enough to kick the bees nest and not get stung too bad.

    Teh problem you have his how those families live now.  Because they have such massive assets, what they do is borrow against the assets and only draw down what is needed to pay the note on the loan.  They live on the loan.  It's very clever and prevents them from paying untold amounts of capital gains taxes.  They only have to pay it on what they use to repay the loans.

    My question about this, if this is the case (and it is) and if there are super wealthy people (and there are)….why the $400,000 level for taxes? Why is that the number used? Plenty of hard working real Americans in that boat. 

    And I guess I don’t recall, is the $400,000 individual or total family income?

    Yes.  Do it in small increments or percentages.

    Bit confused with your use of diversity here. Do you mean a wide range of socioeconomic status? Not sure how that promotes creativity and limits corruption. Quite the opposite, really. Wealth inequality is growing and the racial wealth divide is anything but diverse.

    If you tax a person until they aren't rich anymore does no good for anyone.  That is pretty much communism.  You need economic diversity, yes.

    The racial wealth is bad, we all know this.  Taking from someone else until they don't have it anymore won't go over well.

    The sun beams down on a brand new day
    No more welfare tax to pay
    Unsightly slums gone up in flashing light
    Jobless millions whisked away
    At last we have more room to play
    All systems go to kill the poor tonight -- DK

    Country Joe and the Fish are responsible for the US pulling out of Vietnam. If only Tricky Dick had known.

  • Taxing until they are not rich anymore  is laughable. Come on Tempo! 
    It is.  I can't believe someone wrote that in a song.
    Who cares about a song lyric though?
    Someone thought enough about it to post it...  I happen to enjoy chatting w them too.
