Musk buying Twitter... is pretty much like many of us buying a new Toyota Camry...

He purchased something valued at about 15% of his total net worth.

He went through Morgan Stanley to get the loan.





Let that sink in. I'm 100% in support of people "being all they can be" but let's have a serious talk about a wealth tax, ok?

I have NO PROBLEM with Billionaires, just pay up.

1. +1.. Personally, would like to see more billionaires, taxed properly.

 


Similar to a wealth tax, might be better to require those with large deferred taxes to sell a certain amount investments every year, generating taxable income. Thatís what IRS requires retired folks to do.

3. I bought a used Subaru. Glad it's not like that.

I think one day soon I will just close up twitter. It's annoying anyway, probably only getting worse.

4. Personally, I have no problem with a 100% tax on every dollar

over $1B.

Let those fuckers live within their means, like they always say about the poor.

Think what this country could have done if so damn many trillions weren't hoarded by people like them.
