Musk got (gets) billions in Federal Funding. Those working for minimum wage; their taxes go into Musk's pocket. He's not interested in going to Mars. He's only interested in getting government funding to explore going to Mars.

Nations divide is due to Rich not wanting Dems to tax them.

Would it be wrong to suggest bringing back the guillotine?

If we can't tax them now, we may have to eat them later.

There's a big difference between millionaires and billionaires. Tens of thousands times differences. Thing is most of the "rich" are taxed appropriately.
We need to be progressive and really tax those ultra-rich. take their taxes back to the 1980's.

I understand, that took more than three words.

Agreed. There are a lot of millionaires and many of them pay their taxes (while utilizing the loopholes Congress gives them). Someone has to live in all those $M homes we see. The billionaires are obscenely rich and would suffer zero diminution of their life style if they lost half of it.

I'll "like" this every time you post it. No one should have even one billion dollars. What do you do with all that money. In a bank at 4% (conservative), you would earn $40,000,000 per year. I don't even know what I would do with that kind of money.

No one knows what to do with that much money. It does no good.
For example, Jeff Bezos has a yacht that follows and tends to his yacht. Two giant ass ships for him to play on a jet ski. So silly
