Herewith, a good example of why the Democratic Party is stuck in its current mode. “Mike Bloomberg spent enough on his campaign to give every American $1 million.” @BWilliams on @11thHour @MSNBC pic.twitter.com/iBsWvqEIHf — Bad Econ Takes (@BadEconTakes) March 6, 2020 Obviously, the math here is spectacularly off. If Michael Bloomberg had divided the money he spent on his presidential run evenly among Americans, we would each have got $1.53, not $1 million. For Bloomberg to give $1 million to each American, he would have to be worth $327 trillion (in cash), which, for context,

How about dividing all the money he and Steyer wasted on campaigns among all those whose annual income is less than $30,000? 😁

Did the math in my head while driving with two grandkids in the backseat poking each other and came up with about a buck fifty. I am halfway to age 70 and have not attended college. Learned that math in grammer school.

There is a reason that coveting things that are not yours is proscribed in the Ten Commandments; it is not only offensive to God but destructive to people as well. The seed of Socialism is to covet other's possessions. This is founded in the idea that they obtained them unfairly or illegally and therefore have no moral right to them. This is mostly untrue and therefore the whole distribution of wealth that Socialism is built on is a lie. This lie is needed because if a person justly earns his money, taking it from them would be stealing. So the first tenet of Socialism is that those who have money are not deserving of it. Now the evil of coveting your neighbor's goods is magically transformed to justly seeking a rebalancing to right the wrongs they committed in getting their wealth. I doubt the Lord is fools by such sophistry. No one person can earn enough to support everyone else. Nor can a fairly large group do so. Further, wealth is the fertilizer from which tomorrow's accomplishments are nourished. Wealth taxes steal the fertilizer and wither future harvests, depriving all. So the ends of Socialism, wealth for all, is a lie as well. In addition, concentrated wealth can accomplish great public things. Many libraries, museums, gardens, etc. that educate, entertain, and amaze have their foundations in private wealth. It is very doubtful that government or a collection of individuals could have built such things so broadly. I can almost understand the spot mangling of the numbers and it's pretty well established that television reporters aren't the brightest bulbs. What is reprehensible is that media at large ignores the fallacies of Socialism that demands it will ALWAYS fail. They can't all be that stupid. The one thing that Socialism does accomplish is the concentration of power. THIS is what is truly sought and the media is willing to burn everything else down to achieve it.

While this degree of stupidity could very well run throughout the whole of MSNBC, I doubt all the behind-the-scenes peeps there are so vapid. If Williams is the oh-so-clever, smarter-than-anyone person that he thinks he is, I'll bet his 11th Hour crew set him up for the fall. These type of star anchors like to call all the shots, so they let him shoot himself. He's such a pompous ass who's proven repeatedly he lives and reports fantasy that he was knocked him off his perch at Nightly News. Tom Brokaw he wasn't. He can't be happy on the graveyard shift and probably lets the staff know it. I'd pay to be a fly on the wall after this episode. Author thinks this aired because libs want to show gross imbalance of riches, but the guest said the underlying issue was money in politics. (which has proven to be another false flag evidenced by DJT in '16, and Steyer and Bloomey in '20)

I agree with the sentiment that the money could have been spent somewhere else. That applies to both men but the heartburn I felt with Michael Bloomberg is the reasoning for his campaign. He was campaigning to take out Donald Trump. Yes, I know Donald Trump makes mistakes. We all do. He is someone that no longer wants to kick the can down the road. Seems like wage earners and taxpayers have had to put up with that from politicians. We have a President who wants to make America great again. Why does Michael Bloomberg want to take out President Trump? His money could have accomplished some of those things. I think it comes down to power and greed. From the sounds of it, Michael Bloomberg, along with Democrats, doesn't have the power and will do everything possible to get it back. Truly sad.

Sorry for the second post but another added thought to what I already posted. Democrats, liberals or RINO's don't like the fact that power resides in the American voters. How many times did we hear Barack Obama tell us "he won" so live with it? Well, American voters went for Donald Trump and not Hillary. They have become such sore losers that even Michael Bloomberg tells everyone he is campaigning because he wants to take out Donald Trump. He really has become greedy and wants power at all costs.

$1,000,000,000 / 327,000,000 = $3.058 each. Hey, Bloomberg, or any other wealthy intelligentsia person, your attention is needed. $240 million dollars would pay for cleft lip/mouth surgery of 1 million children in the world who desperately need the surgery. Today the surgery is paid for by individual contributions of $240 dollars per child.

I have several journalist friends. I ask them, "If you have $100 and you increase it by 150% how much do you have?" The answer every time is $150. Math is haaaaaarrrrd.

This is hilarious. Seeing that woman nod and say "That's true" to such a bogus claim is just a hoot. But, Bloomberg never had a chance and anyone with any political sense at all would KNOW he had no chance. That 500 million he spent could have built 50 homeless shelters for 10 million each. Those would have been deluxe. He could have provided 20,000 scholarships for 25,000.00 each for deserving kids who do not have the money to go to college. BTW, if you divided the 1 billion up between everyone making less than 30 grand a year... 157 million x .465 = 73,005,000 workers. 1,000,000,000 (roughly, probably higher than is should be) divided by 73,005,000 is 13.70. Those who make less than 30K per year won't make that 13.70 stretch very far. My advice, quit smoking, drinking beer and eat out one night less per month. That would be like a Bloomberg check for 13.70 at least once per week... for life.

They are innumerate. Exactly the same as illiterate, except with numbers. They have literally no meaningful concept what a million of anything is, and no concept of how that is related to a billion or a trillion, other than the way a three year old thinks.....big, bigger, biggest. Absolutely no ability to actually grasp ANY numbers in a meaningful way. This was actually true of FDR, too. Read about his efforts to handle the economy, written by his economic advisors. He couldn't grasp anything that they were telling him, and he was a total business failure for the same reason. He did a great job understanding what we needed in WW2, and putting the right men in charge of things to make it happen, but he made the Depression much worse due to his innumeracy. Very common among the chattering classes. Ever wonder how those folks who won $65 million in the lottery could be dead broke in 3 years? Innumerate, and too foolish to find an HONEST financial advisor and listen to that person to manage their money. Again, like a three year old with a HUGE bag full of candy. Eat lots, give away lots, spill lots and suddenly - the bag is empty. WAAHHHH!

“I am from Brooklyn.” That statement made by Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer was meant to excuse threats he has made against two conservative justices the day before on the steps of the Supreme Court. His “apology” seemed to be a mix of claiming a license for all New Yorkers to use “strong language” and claiming justification because some justices are “working hand in glove” with Republicans. This was like a bizarre road rage defense from a Brooklyn driver who apologizes for the situation but explains that it was all due to the lousy driving of the other guy.

Last week, the IRS released its annual Statistics of Income. This much-anticipated document is exactly what it sounds like: a thorough analysis of taxpayers’ incomes and payments to the IRS, this time for 2018. Each year, these numbers are illuminating for a number of reasons. For one thing, they show the progression of tax payments over time. For example, revenues have continued to rise since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowered income tax rates for everyone. And the number of filers taking the mortgage interest deduction plummeted from 33 million in 2017 to just 13 million in 2018, as more taxpayers took advantage

After a week of covering the Wuhan coronavirus as both as a pundit and a biosafety professional, I have come to the conclusion that maybe it is time to dial back the drama associated with the pathogen. Let’s begin by starting with some perspective. The current flu season has hit 32 million Americans, resulting in 18,000 deaths, and the vaccine that was selected for the flu season was limited in its effectiveness. Yet, we are not doing a daily flu death countdown. Understandably, COVID-19 is a new pathogen. However, American bioscientists and medical professionals have focused on it with impressive intensity.

A potential political bloodbath at this summer’s Democratic presidential convention, along with Bernie Sanders supporters’ “establishment versus Bernie” campaign motif, shouldn’t surprise anyone who remembers 1968. Back then, like today, the Democrats faced a showdown between their left and center wings—and that confrontation led to violence in Chicago, site of the Democratic Convention, where anti-Vietnam War protestors fought with police in the streets. Inside the convention hall, New Left activists focused their ire not on Republican candidate Richard Nixon but on Vice President Hubert Humphrey, the eventual Democratic nominee. Ironically, Bernie Sanders is old enough to have been part of that movement. Today, he inspires a movement that echoes it.

March 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. In its first decade, ObamaCare has failed to solve many of the health care problems it was supposed to address. Even worse, it has compounded many of the issues it was meant to fix — the law of unintended consequences in action. First, then-candidate Barack Obama said his namesake act would “cut the cost of a typical family’s premiums by up to $2,500 a year.” In reality, the opposite has occurred. According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “premiums have doubled for individual health insurance plans since 2013,

Now that the once-sprawling field of Democrats seeking the presidency has become a two-man race, many in the party are breathing a sigh of relief. All the more so because Joe Biden is the clear front-runner and the dreaded Bernie Sanders looks to be fading. So it’s all set. Biden will be the nominee and give the party a solid chance of scoring a November trifecta: beating President Trump, taking the Senate and holding the House. Count me as skeptical. Instead of a smooth ride, it’s more likely that the Dems’ desperate search for a Trump slayer will hit more turbulence and an alternative to Biden still could be necessary.
