Oh great another billionaire saviour. :lol:

I think it's the inflated sense of self entitlement that grates me. Many seem to happily acknowledge and even exalt all the hard work they've done, but don't have the humility to realize how much dumb luck is involved in the rise of the Bill Gates in the world. Not to mention quite a bit of chicanery with regard to DOS, and that many more of them already started at the top. Greater minds than theirs were buried in mountains of poverty, never to realize their potential.
Not one of the cool kids, and really insecure about it.

He could also be doing so much more.

:thup:

Gates in himself may not be a serious part of the problem, although part of the problem he is. You've seen up close what he's done and, genuinely, that's brilliant.  However, surely you can see that this is about more than just Bill Gates?  Surely you can see how billionaires as a class of people, have steadily used their influence to rig a system so they can hoard so much of this money in the first place?  That if they hadn't done stuff like that, perhaps Americans could well have healthcare by now given the absurdity that they don't and one of the few nations still in that position. 

That filters through all countries also, as the rich in each and every country do very similar things to, thankfully, lesser effect.  Perhaps Africa wouldn't be in such a hole if the rich that ran the Western empires of the past, with greed that is no worse than today's lot, hadn't raped the continent in the same way many of these people do with their corporations today, that dodge all sorts of scrutiny, through, you guessed it, the disproportionate influence they have gained through their incredible levels of greed.

There are many rich people in the states who reckon they should be taxed more.  That's not their issue, it's those in power that need to solve that, and does america really want that?  I'm actually highly doubtful.

I quite agree, but how much of that change of mindset has been down to the way some of these billionaire influencers have controlled the politicians.  Politicians didn't take them there on their own, they were incentivised to do so, and only the billionaire class could offer such rewards.  Just like the UK, the US had a fairly decent redistribution of wealth going until the crashes in the 70s. Then the money took over.

That Netflix documentary covers this point of view. Bill Gates says he was very lucky to come from a well off family. He says it's down to luck he was born in the USA where he had the opportunities. Give it a watch. He's not a saint but it seems he's trying to do some good. There are plenty of rich people who are only looking after themselves.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

Yup.

Tangentially, Booker or Castro would make strong VP picks for Warren or Bernie.

Have to agree with that.  Not a massive fan of Booker, but I can see the strengths.  Just another billionaire with a messiah complex.

Bloomberg is probably getting in at the insistnence/nervousness of "liberal" donors. They think Biden can't win, they see Bernie and Liz as threats, and would like to maintain the status quo.

Absolutely - it’s Clinton all over again. Can’t have a progressive party represented by a progressive, no sir. Need a centrist/centre-right candidate under a progressive banner to beat Trump :mackems:

Quote
Among the people I love is a sibling who works at Walmart cleaning toilets at night in a thinly populated part of eastern Oregon. She’s been there more than 25 years and has trouble saving a dime and certainly no path to retirement. She’s likely to vote, again, for President Trump.

No matter how much I point out that Trump is trying to take away her health care protections by litigating to kill Obamacare, that his tariffs have made it harder to pay her bills, that he is the most repulsive and creepy man ever to occupy the White House, she holds firm.

Why? One reason is what she hears from the other side. Many Democrats, she says, are dismissive of her religious beliefs and condescending of her lot in life. She’s turned off by the virtue-signaling know-it-alls.

Needless to say, but once more for those in the back:

These 👏🏼 people 👏🏼 were 👏🏼 always 👏🏼 going 👏🏼 to 👏🏼 vote 👏🏼 again 👏🏼 for 👏🏼 Trump 👏🏼

It's sadly hilarious that the elitists are the ones who think it's ridiculous for people to have wholly unjustified anger about reverse racism while the ones using them as their pawns are real Americans.
