Quote what playbook? The one that says the corporate tax rate should be 0%? Wait, which party wants a lower corporate tax rate again?

You should know hard work is meaningless.

Also, it isn't about jealousy. It's about collapsing our economy. It's kind of weasely to say "you only want that because you're jealous." No, our entire economy is drastically weakened because too many people aren't being paid enough money. But our country is earning a ton, so where is that money going?

Again, in the 1970s the top 1% had 19.5% of the wealth. Today it has 34.5% of the wealth and, since the 1990s, it has had 93% of the income growth, according to Bloomberg.

This isn't sustainable.


Listen, you can call me jealous all you want. I'd wager $100 I'm much more educated than you (which isn't a sign of intelligence or hard work, just a sign of pedigree) and therefore much more likely to ever be in the C-Suite of any company (because the decisions you make before 25 often matter as much as those made after - having the right letters and names after your own matter as much as what you prove on the job these days.)
