    Some of y’all just don’t understand the struggle of us multimillionaires, tbh... we’re already forced to donate to charity to dodge as much taxing as possible, pay accountants through the nose to find every loophole, ‘donate’ to politicos to get them off our back. The only thing government is good for is handing us those filthy rich contracts, and those ain’t free either, they take a lot of greasing the right people.

    I want to see you guys pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps, like I did. It’s not our fault that we make more money trading stocks, futures, etc than employing people, tbh.
    A lot of that is exactly what people want to fight. Each side (right and left) have their own versions of people trying to politicize and divide for their own gain but we have to agree on what is good for the country. Winners have always been touting that money is supposed to trickle down. We have the lowest taxes for the super-rich vs any modernized country in the world on top of that an inefficient medical system that puts working families in serious threat. Historically it has been shown that money in not trickling down and winners are hoarding more. I come from a relatively wealthy family and it's all about money and all about building on top of what they have. Making sustainable well-paying jobs with good health insurance? The opposite goals of most people with money. Andrew Yang is right about the way stock market, GDP growth, relative economic ideology in this country is not built for sustainable growth as a country but a "only take care of me" mentality. "Trickle Down" has been greatly overstated and will soon die because of automation and AI unless you are a computer/software programmer (only a few have the skills to be true winners).

    "Winners" easily benefit from a stronger and healthier working class. As a christian I think we need to find a way to get more people engaging and taking care of their communities. Living in TEXAS you can see "winners" picking up leaving, building new communities, and dividing themselves from other "losers". That mentality it will only keep getting worse and leave behind more devastated and dangerous communities which equates to more crime and more inequality. What are we going to leave behind after we live? What trends are we setting?

    Bloomberg's entire platform: I'm an old, white, male, billionaire, misogynist, but I'm not as awful as Trump, so vote for me.

    Thatís not my ďconcernĒ. It was an example of a real actualized benefit to people having healthcare outside of the current trappings of this system.
    Youíre trying to have it both ways. Either itís a meaningful benefit or valid concern to you, in which case I suggested, what I think to be, a better alternative. Or the benefit of avoiding the current trapping of the system isnít that important. Identifying a problem isnít meaningful if the problem itself isnít meaningful.

    I'm not defending people expecting return. If I were you'd have a point but I'm not so you don't.

    In other words you can defend people based on principle. Just like people defend the free speech rights of others even if they disagree with what they say. It's really not complicated.

    Bill Gates preyed on smaller businesses not to mention stole their ideas in his cutthroat days

    you realize windows was created at Xerox labs right and Bill stole it.

    without that we could possibly have a better world with multiple IT giants competing w each other

    for example that Xerox lab of geniuses would still be thriving and producing much better that Bill



    its sad that ppl dont knowthe truth about that criminal Gates

    Any thoughts about your hero Sanders dodging disclosing his taxes in the 2016 election or the curiously unaccounted for way he never fully disclosed how he financed purchase of his Maine home? If weíre purity testing all the candidates letís do it for everyone.

    ...and Bernie never withdrew from the 2016 election until way after it was obvious he wasnít going to win and didnít tepidly endorse Clinton until the last minute. Bernie is a little weasel with a big weasel ego.

    meh first of all Im not too hung up on Dump not disclosing his taxes. if we want to make that a requirement for presidents then Im all for changing the law and making it mandatory

    second I dont need to see Bernies taxes to decide that the man lives like an average politician/senator. sure they probably live a bit better than most

    third, this is Bernies famous “lake house” its a hole IMO Im not gona bend over backwards to find out how he purchased that rathole

    Bill stole it from Apple who walked right in and took it from Xerox. If you ever want to see a talk about how the GUI we know and love today was invented at Xerox PARC, you should check these two videos:





    These are from an amazing freshman CS course called CS61A at UC Berkeley based on one of the greatest CS books ever written (which is also 100% free).

    It's pretty cool how they developed GUIs from studying how kids learned and how they used computers. And the lecture is given by the guy largely credited with inventing object oriented programming as we know it today through Smalltalk, the language of the Xerox Alto.

    Better yet, read the book "Accidental Empires" by Robert Cringely. That book explicates the entire Gates, Jobs, Xerox PARC story.

    Spoiler alert, Xerox didn't get anything stolen from them. They just didn't think it was worth anything.

    He should sell that house and give the money to the poor. After all he doesn't "need" that house and that's your standard.
