Elizabeth Warren’s tax plan is popular with all demographics except the one that might actually pay it.

Well, that actually makes sense now doesn’t it?

Courtesy of NYT:

Senator Elizabeth Warren’s plan to tax the assets of America’s wealthiest individuals continues to draw broad support from voters, across party, gender and educational lines. Only one slice of the electorate opposes it staunchly: Republican men with college degrees.

Not surprisingly, that is also the profile of many who’d be hit by Ms. Warren’s so-called wealth tax, which has emerged as the breakout economic proposal in the Democratic presidential primary race.

Nearly a year after Ms. Warren proposed it, the wealth tax has the support of six in 10 Americans, according to a new nationwide poll conducted by the online research firm SurveyMonkey for The New York Times. That support has dipped slightly since July, but Ms. Warren’s plan remains more popular than most proposed tax increases, and its appeal across coalitions is unusual among high-profile campaign proposals.

The ridiculous thing about this group who do not support the tax is that the vast majority of them, and I mean the vast majority, will remain unaffected by it. 

I mean if you are Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, or Jeff Bezos well then fair play. 

But if you are the manager of your local Costco, feeling super superior with your degree in economics, you have little hope of ever breathing the same rarified air with which  billionaires fill their lungs.

What was that quote about Americans again?

Oh yes, “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”

And that is really the root of the problem right there.

    Patriarchy is a band of brothers. And the brothers protect themselves and their hierarchies of power and aggression first.
    Trump was a laughingstock — the lowest man on the totem pole. But he was still a man, and all men are above women, and therefore, the real threat was Hillary. Not to democracy — who cares about that? — but to patriarchy. So the band of brothers turned on Hillary viciously and violently.
    What do good bros do? They give other bros the benefit of the doubt — always, no matter what.
    Donald Trump…over Hillary. He was given the benefit of the doubt over and over again, literally announcing things like “I could kill someone on Fifth Avenue…grab em by the pussy…” and so on. That’s how the band of brothers works. Bros will be bros.
    The band of brothers isn’t just the bad guys — more perniciously, more dangerously, it’s also many of the good guys.
    now it’s bros celebrating bros for being bros cheering on their bros. Mediocre yet elite white men are doing what they do best — rewarding mediocre but elite white men. While the women are treated as threats and dangers.

      The energies of the masculine and feminine are not to be confused for biology and gender. That’s what the ignorant do.

    The billionaires gang up on her and somehow magically right on cue she is “sinking” in the polls. The billionaires are spending multiple millions on negative ads in Iowa and New Hampshire.

    And that should make all decent people despise them. Michael Bloomberg loves his money so much that he is willing to make an ass of himself nationwide rather than part with even one nickel. Funny that nobody ever asks him in which country his 50+ billions are and the sycophants interviewing him never ask him if he is going to hide his tax returns and if he plans to shack up with his girlfriend in the White House. I’ve always disliked Michael Bloomberg and considered him a shitty mayor. He is an asshole and I’m mystified why the DNC didn’t just tell him to fuck off- have they learned nothing?
