Americans Increasingly in Favor of Pillaging the Pockets of the Ultra Wealthy

The free market capitalism we were promised has been molested by the ultra-rich, with help from Congress, and the American people are not happy about it.

As the nation continues to seethe at an uncontrollable federal government whose pocketbooks are more important to them than We The People, we are bound to see wild shifts in our feelings about wealth.

The free market has been successful, undoubtedly, in creating some intense competition among those who would provide goods and services to America.  This competition breeds innovation both in quality and cost, and has been responsible for an untold number of corporate, medical, and technological breakthroughs.

On the other hand, however, this win-at-all-costs attitude is easily co-opted by those who would wish to push the moral boundaries of the free market.  Capitalism has been commandeered by these greed-dependent derelicts, and they have literally used the legislative branch of government to change the rules to their advantage.

This had led to an increasingly polarized financial situation the world over, in which the rich grease the palms of the lawmakers in order to make both richer.

You can only guess where that money is coming from while looking in the mirror.

That is why Americans are becoming increasingly in favor of taking back some of this exorbitant wealth for ourselves, especially from those who are sitting on more money than they could possibly spend in several lifetimes.

Surveys are showing overwhelming support for raising taxes on top earners, including a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll released Monday that found 76 percent of registered voters believe the wealthiest Americans should pay more in taxes. A recent Fox News survey showed that 70 percent of Americans favor raising taxes on those earning over $10 million — including 54 percent of Republicans.

The numbers suggest the political ground upon which the 2020 presidential campaign will be fought is shifting in dramatic ways, reflecting the rise in inequality in the United States and growing concerns in the electorate about the fairness of the American system.

“There is a deep wellspring in terms of perception of unfairness in the economy that’s been tapped into here that either didn’t exist five years ago or existed and had not had a chance to be expressed,” said Michael Cembalest, chairman of market and investment strategy at JPMorgan Asset Management who has studied the latest tax proposals. “This is quite a moment in American economic history where all of a sudden in a matter of months this thing has kind of exploded like this.”

This sentiment is precisely what has sent French Yellow Vest protesters into a prolonged and violent 12 week gripe with their government…and also what has kept the mainstream media from spreading their message.

In France, these protests for economic equality come from a population not endowed with the Second Amendment, which we as Americans possess for the sole purpose of righting the wrongs of a tyrannical government…hence the reluctance of the American media to adequately and factually relay the situation in France to our television screens.

Houston Chemical Fire Prompts “STAY INSIDE” Warning for Residents

Despite the obvious danger to the public, authorities waited until Thursday to warn residents.

Houston

The people of Houston, Texas are in trouble. On Sunday, a massive chemical plant in the Texas city went up in smoke.  Alarmed social media users in The Lone Star State took to Twitter to share the harrowing images of a dark plume of who-knows-what smothering the sky over their homes. https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/1108183014608158721 https://twitter.com/Ace_Gagnon/status/1107646470264631298 https://twitter.com/gulf_news/status/1108190169956519939 Houston residents were told that there was no need to be concerned about possible health concerns, despite the noxious plume having spread far and wide. Suddenly, and frighteningly, authorities have backtracked on that assessment, and are now warning residents to stay indoors. National Guard troops have been called in and residents were told to stay inside after elevated levels of benzene were detected early Thursday near a Houston-area petrochemicals storage facility that caught fire this week. Harris County officials said the Guard and hazardous materials teams have established perimeters around the Intercontinental Terminals Company in Deer Park, which is about 15 miles southeast of Houston. The Texas Environmental Protection Agency said Wednesday that benzene levels near the facility didn’t pose a health concern. But authorities issued a shelter-in-place order Thursday following “reports of action levels of benzene or other volatile organic compounds” within Deer Park, according to the city. Several school districts also canceled classes for the day, citing “unfavorable air quality conditions.” Residents near to the fire have reported a range of strange symptoms, including headaches and nosebleeds, according to local environmental groups.

Media Finally Debunks Nutty Enviro Claim We Have Only 12 Years to ‘Save Earth’

“There is no scientific consensus, much less unanimity, that the planet only has 12 years to fix the problem,” the AP wrote in its Monday fact-check.

The absurd claim that we only have 12 years before the earth is destroyed by climate change has become part of the Democrat mantra for the 2020 election cycle. But, at last one media outlet has finally moved to debunk the claim. This week, after the accomplishment-free “Beto” O’Rourke jumped into the race for president, even the left-wing Associated Press had to admit that he was all wet with his idea that the earth is doomed in “12 years” if we don’t “do something” about global warming. On Monday, the AP published a fact check of O’Rourke’s claim that the we will all die in 12 years if climate change is ignored. O’Rourke made the absurd claim that we have only 12 years left to live during his kick off for his run for the Democratic presidential nomination in Keokuk, Iowa. “This is our final chance. The scientists are absolutely unanimous on this. That we have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis,” O’Rourke piously exclaimed. But the AP found O’Rourke’s proclamation a little bit less than the truth. “There is no scientific consensus, much less unanimity, that the planet only has 12 years to fix the problem,” the AP wrote in its Monday fact-check. https://twitter.com/AP_Politics/status/1106975520779051014 Of course, as he has pretty much already proven, O’Rourke is not a thinker and does not have his own ideas. He was merely spouting the idea du jour about globaloney as recently espoused by communist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who said the earth will be destroyed in 12 years unless we act now to prevent climate change. Ocasio-Cortez delivered this fact-free line at a Jan. 21 event marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day at which she called climate change “our World War II.” Um… first of all, “our…
