Workers lost $3.7 Trillion during Pandemic

Billionaires made $3.9 trillion during Pandemic
Totally just a coincidence guys. I'm sure those two facts are completely unrelated.

It couldn’t be because those billionaires are advancing the tech that will allow further control of citizens and donating to the party that wants to implement that control, could it?

I've been arguing, that I think the support for welfare, benefits etc... is just a con job. The moment Democrats assume uniparty control of America... they'd roll all that shit back down to nothing and all of the welfare would go to corporate welfare.

I don't think the "Socialists" Call the shots, and are just there to con the young gullible people. In fact, I think once they assumed uniparty control of America... they'd even even go after labor unions. They'll use their power over the media, to frame anyone going on strike as being "anti-semitic" and shut it down.
Just like they tried to shut down the gamestop fiasco, by trying to paint it as "Anti-semitic". The "Left" has lately really started becoming faaaaaaaaar more in favor of heartless capitalism than even Conservatives ever have been.

"Their business, their rules". They're even defending GoFundMe... literally *STEALING* people's money... because its their business. They're willing to be fooled into opposing literally *ANYONE* so long as one side flies a rainbow flag, and they accuse the enemy of being anti-semites.


"Today, an anti-semitic union was raised to the ground by G4S Security machinegunners. Survivors were raped, tortured, and mutilated to set an example that racist and sexist demands for higher wages would not be tolerated. Our GodKing, Jeff Bezos, adorned in rainbow colors assured his loyal followers... that their meager possessions and savings would be redistributed to pay for transgender reassignment surgeries and homosexual weddings. All heil Jeff Bezos! All Heil Mark Zuckerberg! CRUSH THE INTOLERANT RACIST POOR! EAT THE BUGS, LIVE IN THE POD, FUCK THE TRANNY, OBEY YOUR MASTERS"

She only serves as a carrot to lead on the gullible young. They promise socialism, but never deliver anything.
All they deliver, is more corporatism, and maybe *MAYBE* every once in a while... they throw you a bone.

The real people in power at the DNC, are the Neo-Liberals. If they had uniparty control... they would turn on Labor Unions in a heartbeat and probably label them "Anti-semitic" and "Racist" and start cracking down on them.

If you think wealth is a zero sum game you are a poor. That is the beauty of capitalism and thank god we have it. You can have your socialism somewhere else where EVERYONE is poor if that’s what you really want.

Poor people squander money, if you gave them money it’ll flow out of their hands like water

If you hate tech billionaires stop sending them your money! (Amazon could be killed off just as easily as Sears, Apple could go the way of blackberry, Facebook could “MySpace”, ALL if y’all all quit using them).

I can't tell you how many times I've heard Democrats defend rampant illegal immigration by mocking poor people who are affected as "losers" who "cant compete with a lowly immigrant lol". Of course, it completely escapes them how that very same stated attitude isn't... INCREDIBLY fucking racist.

The other wealth transfer is the forcible closing of small businesses deemed non-essential.  Those small businesses for the most part folded.  Their landlords had no income and they got foreclosed on.  This is how the rich get richer.  Wealth is transferred from the middle class up.  Same thing happens with inflation.

Because it is quickly transferred into the hands of the wealthy.  Why do you think the ultra rich support the  Democrat Party?  

How many people do you think used the money to pay down debt?  A wise old banker once told me, “Never borrow money for personal property.”  The guy was a billionaire and he drove a 5 year old station wagon he bought through his loan department who took it back on a defaulted loan.

His position was only to borrow money if you can make more money than it cost you to borrow it.

This is a steaming pile of crap.

Fed reverse repo facility has been averaging 1.5+ trillion for a while. This is excess reserves by banks and other financial companies being parked with the fed short term to earn a few crumbs of interest

The banking system isn't on the brink of insolvency, it's so stuffed full of excess cash that they literally can't find enough good places to lend or invest it. When they do it will just drive inflation faster. Where did all that money come from? From the Fed's reckless asset buying program and expanded balance sheet
