And design only hits wealth OVER $50 million. Typical homeowners pay tiny % of their wealth (their home). The same tiny % on wealth > $50 million for only 75K taxpayers won't limit even most affluent lifestyle-and could fund life-altering economic security for millions.

The reaction to a wealth tax - silence or active opposition or arguing in this one area complexity is a stopper - has been particularly disappointing, Especially as it can clearly help fund economic dignity & security & even a small nest egg for tens & tens of millions families.

I was told I was too dark to be on TV and that viewers wouldn’t “want to see that”. I’m entering my 12th year on the air in TV news.

Blake Griffin on fans booing Drummond: “he’s busted his ass for this franchise for I dunno how many years. We wouldn’t be here without him. You never want to hear that from your own fans”

The zealous targeting of people on Social Security Disability is a disgrace. The Trump team expands multi-billion giveaways for the largest companies and most well-off families - and then targets and denigrates struggling Americans on SSDI or the EITC. Disgraceful.

Any objective read of the mueller report portrays a president who systematically lied, misled, is ethically and morally challenged, tried to interfere in an investigation, asked others to interfere, and sought to serve only himself.

"85,000 Yemeni children under the age of 5 have died of starvation since 2015. More than a million children are suffering from severe malnutrition, and fully half of Yemen's 28 million people are at risk of "the worst famine in 100 years."

Red underline is what Barr quoted from Mueller report, blue underline is what he omitted. If my students submitted a paper containing this quote with the rest omitted, I’d fail them because the quote would be grossly misleading. Barr gets an F. He failed the American people.

The degree to which Barr lied about the contents of this report is mind-blowing.

This shift in the president's apparent motives over time is important for the question of whether and when he acted with corrupt intent.

I am actually old enough to remember a time (that being any other moment in America history) where all of that would have been universally seen and reported on as a devastating Presidential scandal.
