5. Exactly!

I can only hope Karma dishes them all up a large intense serving of covid! After all, it's crown-shaped...only befitting the egocentric scum who would behave in such a manner!

I was stuck at a social event that I couldn't escape from (several weeks ago) & wouldn't you know, there was a very wealthy - obscenely wealthy, narcissistic - repuke I was stuck talking to for a few (revolting!) minutes.

Guy said, "I believe as a human being, Trump is a truly horrible person, but he's better than any Democrat whose focus is redistribution of wealth."

I almost puked in his face.

They are so short sighted & cold hearted...

Crime here is ridiculously high because people have no hope of a better life.

If I were so wealthy, I would still push for better social programs & higher wages simply because (from a repuke "all about me" perspective), ultimately, it would make for a much safer environment. (It is quite common for random shootings & other atrocities to occur here. Self-isolating is little diffrrence for me because I have been living this way for literal fear for my life.)

The infrastructure here is so poor that roads - even interstates - are like off-roading & it is very common to for roads to break suspension parts, wheels, oil pans, etc.

Their greed is just incomprehensible. I believe it is clinically pathological, but patriarchy rewards such behavior. 🤮

7. Redistribution of wealth. That is a mantra from the Reagan era, born through that whole

government is not the answer. That ALWAYS meant little to no regulations, more profits for the wealthy.

8. Absolutely!

I did manage to throw insome good jabs at "St. Regan" & how our country must enact Warren's plan to reinstitute the wealth tax.

I'm sure the mofo had nightmares about me...at least I hope so! 🤣🤣🤣👍

10. Its sad but that mindset is what you see in the Ron Paul libertarian approach too. The cruelty

behind those policies are incredible.

Warren was my first choice, just love her plans!

11. YES!

Prisons are literally filled with people who embody such worldviews & callousness.

Oh I adore Warren!

I'm still holding out hope that Joe will consider her as VP, but there are many crital roles she can play in the new Democratic admin come January!

13. ABSOLUTELY!

And by such a large margin that anything short of a landslide for Joe will be obvious election interference!

18. Are you in Oklahoma?

We visited there last fall ... for a wedding ...

Before we were out of the state (our son had met us there in his vehicle, so we had two), his windshield was broken by a rock, thrown up on a highway by a semi tire, and we had four tires ruined on our Ď85 Toyota motorhome ... belts destroyed from potholes ... (those tires had been replaced last summer before the trip).

19. No

I current exist in the repuke shithole referred to as TN. Memphis metro. 🤮

Sorry to hear about your vehicle! It is quite surreal.

Roads have literally destroyed power steering rack, struts & mounts, oil pans, umerous sensors & solenoids, cd player, radio capacitors, various wiring, etc, etc, etc.

Conveniently, shis shithole has NO income tax, but 9.5% tax on everything so, in typical repuke fashion, we have those who can least afford expenditures of high taxes pulling the wagon with these high taxes on food & medicine.

The illustrious Gov Lee recently received I think $25 mil from Fed for infrastructure; however, none of it (according to local news at the time) was provided to Memphis area.

Gawd I detest them.

20. I remember traveling across the country in the early '90s

we could tell the difference in the politics of each state, just by road conditions...

For the life of me, I just donít understand how others seem oblivious to their own destructive decisions...

14. The monetizing of healthcare

Has created monsters

Martin Shkreli

On September 17, 2015, Dave Muoio of Healio, an in-depth clinical information website for health care specialists,[63] reported on a letter from the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the HIV Medicine Association to executives at Turing,[64] questioning a new pricing for Daraprim.[61] The price of a dose of the drug in the U.S. market increased from US$13.50 to US$750 per pill, overnight, a factor of 56.

15. So they are no different than say, the Mob. Pay up or die.

Except the Mob doesn't get to kill with immunity.
