becca.tv "To govern people is a tremendous responsibility and should only be in the hands of those who are righteous, sane and moral." (From the DVD: "Marvin Gaye, Behind the Legend") -- Unrelated to that but about Marvin: Why isn't the estate of #MarvinGaye suing that guy #CharliePuth? Just became aware of that disastrous "song" that came out in April it seems and I'm more than alarmed that Marvin could be appropriated AND disrespected by white American pop stars who don't seem to have ever listened to #WhatsGoingOn or care about #SocialJustice or contribute anything of value to American culture. The sexual side of his message, even though relevant, is only one of the very important messages that this true intellectual shared with the entire world. I am still in shock from watching the video this morning.

  •   humansareanimalstoo @its.trader the only taxes bernie has even mentioned are taxes on wall street (thats money was generated by working people, it belongs to the working people) and they would benefit the poor, and taxes on the rich, which take their money from workers' starvation-wages, which would help pay off the deficit, which is just a giant debt that they rich have dumped upon all americans, bailout plan after bailout plan, billionaire taxbreak after billionaire tax break. Youll learn more about politics as you get older. 22h
  •   its.trader Age doesn't make my argument void. Bernie Sanders said he would support a 90% income tax. This redistribution of wealth would put everyone at an equal, overstated "starvation-wage". By basic economic principles, socialism is always doomed to fail. Raising the minimum wage, also, does not work. Seattle is proof in itself. The radical leftist leaders of Greece put forth economic polices virtually identical to that of Sanders, and it will work for us about as well as it worked for them. I think its ironic that many liberal politicians like to say, "if you work hard you should be able to get ahead, and stay ahead." Yet they support redistribution of wealth. So in reality it's "if you work hard you should be able to get ahead, and stay ahead. But, if you get too far ahead were gonna take 90% of your income and disregard all the work it took to get you where you are." Redistribution of wealth kills incentive to work hard and take challenging positions on the job market. Why work hard, go into medical school and stay in residency for 6 years to become a surgeon and get rich if the government is just gonna take it away if you acquire too much. Bernie Sander's entire net worth is only twice that of his annual salary, so he's clearly not that genius with his money. Socialism doesn't work. It's a tried and true failure. You'll learn more about politics when you do some research. 22h
  •   humansareanimalstoo @its.trader Seattle actually saw a serious drop in unemployment because of that, its been great for their economy. A 90% tax rate on the rich would be fantastic for this country, and we've done it before in this country, and it was fantastic for this country. Real educated (and rich) adults like Bill Gates understand this and talk about this. Actually, its not Socialism, its called #NordicCapitalism, and it works great, its yielded the highest standard of living in the modern world (Scandinavia). No need to reply on this post again. Im going to tag you to Bill Gates explaining why its good, and a caption explaining further why its just logical. I understand that you are petty and selfish, but taxes are the price you pay for a high standard of living in a large and highly populated country. 22h
  •   its.trader The comparison of the income tax rate from the fifties to now to the fifties is a false equivalency. I don't feel like typing it out because its a novel, but its been debunked and I read it - I encourage you to do the same. Also, seattles economy is struggling right now and is on a downhill slop. Nordic capitalism isnt real capitalism. Capitalism in its true and most succesful form is laissez faire capitalism, a true free market. And bill gates didn't explain anything there, he just said its time for higher taxes... Finally, I fail to see how people like me are "petty and selfish" when you want to take the money we worked for. There's broken logic there. 22h
  •   humansareanimalstoo @its.trader why do i care if its "true" capitalism? I dont have a capitalism fetish, and im not selfish, my only interest is helping those in need. Maybe youre just a sociopath and you cant relate. 22h
  •   humansareanimalstoo @its.trader and gates says very clearly "our best decade of economic growth was when our top tax rates were 90%". Our economic growth was at 4% a year, now that we lowered our top rates to 30% we are lagging at 2% growth 22h

  •   amir.alsafi Am iraqi. I dont mind being called iranian. Cause Iran is so beutiful in every way!! 1d
  •   qwertystar Something seriously needs to be done to America and Israel! Can't stand Israel!!! 1d
  •   the_soldier_of_resistance @qwertystar No one can stand Israel. They are a illegal myth which is called by much people "state". If you look at the facts you will realize that the most aspects of the Israeli history are based on lies. For example: The Lavon Affair, the iraqi nuclear bomb, the false flag terrorist attack of Argentina and today the lies about the iranian "nuclear bomb" 1d

  •   joeymoe12 So what are you going to do? Are you going to audition again? 4d
  •   brazzy_jay 🏻🏻 4d
  •   sywoods7 That's funny that you should ask that, I was with a friend last night who suggested that I should actually audition again. It would be a "happily ever after" scenario for everyone. I'm not so sure however if all believe in yellow brick roads and fairy tales. Perhaps I should consult with another opinion. Should I audition again? What do you think? @chasewin 3d
  •   sywoods7 ^^One day at a time right?^^ I welcome any feedback @manthasam4 @jimmyfowlie 3d
