    Scott Morrison cares about OP. It's who he voted for after all. The one ruining his life.

    The Prime Minister is Australia is literally nicknamed Scummo because he's a corrupt right wing fascist religious nut job. You can't make this shit up.

    Meanwhile, under the Patriot Act which was filed quickly after 9/11, more of your rights got stripped away because fear led you to a place of valuing security over freedom. Whether that be security from "terrorism" or "climate change" is irrelevant.

    Keep fighting for that climate change though.

    Oh, and the FBI is totally your friend and this has nothing to do moving towards a surveillance police state.
    you failed - He asked a question , and I answered him , he doesn't want to stand up and say that no flight law did not affect climate is looking for his own moral answers, to make himself look good(.)

    So you do see that these people are the enemy, why do you keep voting for their tax cuts? No one champions against Amazon like Bernie, why do you hate him? When Bezos wanted to build his Amazon headquarters and threatened to go elsewhere if NY didn't subsidize his taxes, AOC told him to stick it when a bunch of morons crucified her because 'Bezos is taking those jobs with him to another city'. And guess what Bezos didn't go elsewhere. He built in NY still because he's not building his headquarters in a shithole in Kentucky.

    Taxing them doesn't make billionaires leave. They want you to believe that, sure. The most prosperous era in US history was when FDR presented the New Deal which taxed the rich 90%. And guess what? The rich hid their money overseas and paid taxes on money they couldn't hide. McConnell is pro billionaire just as much as Manchin is. This red vs blue thing is a smokescreen to keep everyone fighting. Billionaires don't bring value to society, they're simply leeches. Their companies are powerful as they are because they monopolize the educated talent in the USA.

    Billionaires were also supposed to create all these wonderful paying jobs through trickle-down economics once we cut their taxes & slashing environmental laws, and the wealth would trickle down to everyone else.. So much for that over the last 40yrs

    What ended up happening? Billionaires pocketed the extra money, placed a lot of it in overseas bank accounts, and very little if anything trickled down to enrichen others. Rich have not only gotten significantly richer over the last 40yrs, but their wealth growth rate has significantly increased. They have done all they could to eat up 90% of the wealth, while the rest of us are stuck down here fighting like dogs over the 10% leftovers tossed down to us.

    They are going nowhere. Where will they run off to from the US, the wealthiest nation in the history of this planet? China? Russia? Norway? Germany? Australia?
    It's an empty threat to keep control over you fools by continuing with these tax-cuts that benefit them and keep pushing to slash everything but the military. Speaking of the military, that's another reason why the vast majority is not leaving after being safe here for generations.
