Forced patriotism is no patriotism at all. It's just like kneeling during the anthem. If the goal is to force patriotism you spit on the graves of those who fought for our freedom

'Lockdown' states like California did better economically than 'looser' states like Florida, new COVID data shows

Yet for much of the past year, some experts have quietly advanced a counterargument: that economic activity is mainly affected by the rising and falling severity of the pandemic itself — not the relative strictness of the measures implemented to mitigate it. In fact, these experts argued, nonpharmaceutical interventions, or NPIs — a set of 20 government responses such as business closures, mask mandates and stay-at-home advisories that Oxford University rates according to stringency — can have an economic upside. The more the virus seems to be under control, the more eager people will be to participate in the economy.

Last week, this argument got a boost with the publication of a new report by economists at the University of California, Los Angeles. According to the latest quarterly UCLA Anderson Forecast, not only did big states with more stringent COVID measures end 2020 with fewer infections per capita, they also tended to post better economic growth numbers last year than states with fewer restrictions.

 In other words, California’s economy actually fared better than Florida’s.

couple things...

1.  Your link talks about people making $540 k per year and lumps them in with billionaires, that’s insane.  In a country of 350 million, the top 1% is about 3.5 million people.  Out of THAT group, the richest 50 own far more than the others COMBINED.  And THOSE are the ones who pay no taxes, that tiny fraction of the populace at the tippy top.

So yeh, millionaires are overtaxed.  Billionaires are not.  And even if they were, you are basing your whole argument here on income tax, which is merely a tax on liquid gains in one year.  It says nothing about how the top .00001% own the media, the airports, the oil refineries and factories, toll roads, they basically own all the DEBT in the country (huge usury/interest $profits), all the land, the banks and other assets - including stocks which are taxed as capitol gains, a different bracket than income.

2.  You are not a billionaire.  If you were, you would be counting your money all day instead of posting here.  So why do you advocate for billionaires constantly when their economic interests are in direct conflict with yours?  You are like a battered spouse who makes excuses for the guy who keeps beating her ***

Politics: Libertarian
Location: Right Here

The steady drift to the left always moves the goal posts in defining liberals and conservatives... in this Country anyway.

What was considered "liberal" five or six decades ago is now center right or even "conservative" in today's political climate. By that same movement, yesterday's conservatives are today's radical right, the liberals became centrists, the progressives are the liberals, and the radical left are the new progressives.

JFK was considered a liberal in his day, but he would be center right or maybe ever considered a conservative by today's standards.

This is why today, the "conservatives" seem to be more anti-establishment" than the "liberals"... when in reality, the anti- establishment right are really more like yesterday's liberals.

I really wish people would quit **** with the goal post myself.
