He sure had a lot to say about Wall Street in his campaign. Then he went and filled his entire cabinet with Wall Street.

Carried interest loophole, anyone?

Remember when that was a thing?

Trump doesn't have any colleagues/acquaintances/friends that aren't elitsts with deep pockets.

It's all he has ever known.

So you are calling Trump two face which is no different than posters here calling the Dem candidates two face.

People in both parties tell the public one thing to get their votes and then go and do the opposite.

In reality neither party is really a party of the people.

We are there to vote them into office and then empty our wallets to fund their careers.

In fact, you likely pay higher taxes than the people you label rich.









I didn't use the word "demonize" but it might have been suggested.


Warren and Bernie and others are gearing up to wage war on the rich. They say it everyday in their speeches when they pander to minorities, lower and middle class people. They are blaming much of what they deem wrong in America as the fault of greedy white rich men. I don't think there is any denying this and smart people know this.



Now of course blaming them and telling the rest of us that they are going to make them pay is one thing and actually making them pay is another but while they complain and make promises to us they will gladly accept donations from the rich.


It really is disgusting.

There are constant fundraisers out here during election season, for both parties, but mostly democrats. Bon Jovi just had a fundraiser at his house for Corey Booker, which made me laugh. Why would people waste their time and money on a candidate that has virtually zero chance of winning? Last weekend, Bill Clinton was umpiring for the annual artists vs writers softball game. But Iím sure he must have been out here fundraising for someone. At least it wasnít for Hillary this time.
