TAX THE EVIL.


Carl Icahn, billionaire investor, and his ilk have made hundreds of millions of dollars this year betting America’s malls would default on their loans.

WHO COULD HAVE PREDICTED THAT AMERICA’S MALLS WOULD BE AFFECTED BY A HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS AND DEADLY VIRUS.

Oh right: anyone. Even me! Believe it or not, I could have totally predicted that! I am a professional psychic, after all. Yet strangely, I myself have NOT made hundreds of millions of dollars recently. WTF?

And hold on…my spirit guides are now telling me…that…

…millions of retail workers across the country, who were not exactly raking in the big bucks before COVID-19 and are now unemployed, somehow did not make hundreds of millions of dollars either. Huh.

I guess we can only conclude that Carl Icahn has worked hundreds of millions of times harder than those retail workers have. Simple. That’s how capitalism works, right? American Dream! Bootstraps, and all of that!

A system that generates profits for a tiny minority of elites from the misery, misfortune, death and destruction of others is inherently evil.

Health insurance companies.

“Defense” contractors.

Slumlords.

Fossil fuel exploiters.

Hedge funders.

This is hardly a complete list. But every single one of these industries should be re-incorporated as non-profits, with excess revenues going to programs that ameliorate the damage and carnage they so casually wreak.

    I don’t understand people like that. With that kind of loot, you could get a solid gold Rolls Royce, with a trunk full of cocaine, chauffeured by a super model, to drive all your friends to a private cottage, where a world-class chef will prepare the best meal you’ve ever had, while your favorite artist entertains.

    Instead, they choose to go to the office and make another few million dollars that they’ll never get to spend. Money is wasted on the rich.

    Hoarders of money.

    Mentally ill*, so messed up as human beings and yet lauded by our badly messed up & broken society as if their obsession, their ideology was somehow healthy.

    * Apologies for any inadvertant splash damage that here to the good neurologically atypical people out there (of which I’m kinda one as well ) but, I have tried yet really cannot think of a better way of describing them here. :-(
