    The guy has never worked a day in his life. Didn’t get his first job until he was 40! FOURTY!
    Want to know what a worthless sack of shit he is? He was kicked out of a hippy commune because he didn’t do enough.

    I just wrote a bill and passed it myself to take Bernie Sanders' lakeside dacha and give it to myself.

    I might add a rider to the bill and help myself to Nancy Pelosi's jet.

    I just wish I had thought of this sooner!

    Evidently school is still in session. Who is your President? That's right Donald J Trump is your President.

    Questionable constitutionality of a retroactive "tax" starting two years earlier. If that's legal, that would swallow up the taking clause. Liberals could just tax everyone more for the last 100 years, resulting in wealth confiscation.

    Unconstitutional taking.

    It was be cheaper for Bezos to hire private soldiers of fortune and take out Sanders and Warren. If would be an interesting question for each of us: at what level of government theft of your wealth would you take up arms against their tyranny?

    Even though Bezos a liberal, it would be interesting to see how he would react. Probably by moving his money overseas. Remember Congress whining to Apple executives about their technology being overseas exempt from US taxes? Billionaires get great tax advice. It's the upper middle class that gets hammered by taxes and regulations.

    One time tax? LOL, yeah, because the government always lives up to their tax promises. No way they would ever extend to tax to everyone else, no way they wouldn't start confiscating IRA and other retirement accounts.

    When did that change happen? Dems do exactly that. Dems are a collection of small minorities. A few here, a few there...the biggest block, of course, is blacks, who are about 25% of Dem votes, but add in gays (a couple percent), Jews (perhaps 5% of voters), Muslims (2-4%)...and you get to 50% in a good year.

    Most of that wealth is tied up in stock. In order to pay $42 billion in taxes, Bezos would have to sell a huge chunk of Amazon stock, which would likely cause the price to drop. That, in turn, would damage existing investors. Nice. Just like a commie. Hurting the little guy, too.

    Anybody who thinks bringing these commie scum into power is a good idea is a traitor to this country.

    What amazes me is how guys like Bezos, Zuckerberg, and Gates remain leftists after stuff like this.

    I remember GaryB implying that he was making tons of money based on his brilliant mind and models; I wonder how much he would have to pay!

    It amazes me that liberals who vote for failed policies that the destroy the state where they live. This causes them to leave the state they ruined. Then they move to a Republican run state with lower taxes and less regulation because Republican policies make a state a nicer place to live. Stupid is making the same mistake over and over.
