""I'm just a dumbass that barely made it out of 12th grade but wouldn't it make more sense to close the freaking loopholes and leave the working people alone?""

The rich put the loopholes in there for their friends for a reason.

Bill Gates pays no income tax. They (The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) donates all kinds of stuff and get a big name and DEDUCTION for every cent donated. Right now it is most likely Covid vaccine. But it for 50 cents, donate it and deduct $4/dose. It is all in the rules..

The big ones all do it. Pelosi and others in congress get 'insider trading' info and use it, legal for them. Others go to prison.

“The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome becomes bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.”

Cicero, 55 BC.

So, evidently, we have learned absolutely nothing over the past 2076 years.

Amen! History DOES repeat itself! That’s why the dems want to do away with teaching it!!! That way young people don’t know the dark side of socialism!

Same.
I'm fairly confident that 99% of Biden's voters haven't paid attention to one thing his administration has done since they voted him in.

Two Americas

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

The America that works, and the America that doesn’t.

The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts.

Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America.

It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility.

It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office.

It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country. That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.

The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Biden pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.

That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Biden will take it for you. Vote Democrat.

That is the philosophy that produced Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America .

It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.

The Democrats have not empowered their followers; they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope.

The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful – seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices, and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society are a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure. Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income.

You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education and/or employment.

You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course.

Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an inequality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I chose another avenue.

He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Joe Biden needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.

It is not inequality Joe Biden intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted decisions.

President Biden and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort. The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.” Biden would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society.

Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if President Biden Barack gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas, and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts. It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

What Biden offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow.

Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

You are right on Chuck.
But it's all bullshit.
They will seek to accomplish this with taxes, to which the majority will be fleeced.
This commie crap is all bullshit to control the mass idiots and scare the rest.
The big players at the top that are calling the shots aren't actual commies.
They are globalist criminals. They dont just want wealth.
They want to control the wealth.
Even Putin isn't a commie.
He's the richest man on earth.

Bishop Ennis Tait when commenting on the Bryant shooting in Ohio on FOX News was asked where her parents were. His response was that "it takes a village to raise a child", right, pass the buck. It's someone else's fault that your kid is an ass wipe. It doesn’t take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say ‘NO!’
Smack the kid in the grocery store caiuse they want something (candy bar, etc) and the sheriff will be waiting in your driveway when you get there.
They have many of the bases covered and many help em, like the grocery store worker(s)
in the above case.

If your Sherrif would do that you now know where your problem lies, now dont you?
Vote locally, and you won't have that problem.
