Elizabeth Warren’s Tax Proposal Aims at Assets of Wealthiest Americans

Elizabeth Warren’s Tax Proposal Aims at Assets of Wealthiest AmericansWarren, a Massachusetts senator who recently established an exploratory committee for the 2020 Democratic nomination, said she would use the revenue to rebuild the middle class, potentially by using the money to pay for child care or relieve student debt. The proposal underscores Warren’s economic populist message at the heart of her campaign to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. A former Harvard law professor, she has written extensively about the shrinking middle class and made enemies on Wall Street for pinning the blame for rising income inequality on the wealthy and large corporations.

Actually Jeff Bezos, I'm the world's wealthiest man if you count how rich I am in love and also my drug empire

Actually Jeff Bezos, I'm the world's wealthiest man if you count how rich I am in love and also my drug empireWell Jeff Bezos, you've been named the new world's wealthiest person, so I suppose congratulations are in order. That is, they would be, if not for one simple fact: you are not the world's wealthiest person. I am. That's right, Mr. Bezos, all of your billions ($ 90.6 of them, according to
Forbes) pale in comparison to MY wealth. You see, Jeff, I am rich in love for my family, and the profundity of that love far surpasses your bank accounts.  Also, I run a global criminal drug empire worth more than $ 300 billion. SEE ALSO: In the gig economy, I'm a doer. And you can be one too Sorry, Jeff! Your spot at the top of the world's wealthiest list is unfortunately meaningless! Even with all your money, profit and influence, you'll never match how truly rich I feel each and every day of my life when I walk into my home and am greeted by my sweet young daughter Alise, my beautiful wife Shannon, and my 75 personal bodyguards armed to the teeth to protect me and all of my drugs 24/7. Of course, I'm sure you're feeling good today, thinking about where you started and how far you've come along on your journey to becoming the world's wealthiest man. Your passion for your business is very admirable. But mark my words, Mr. Bezos: some day soon you will look around and know that your $ 90.6 billion is chump change — a hollow, meager number meaning nothing — when stacked up against the swell of love in my heart when my daughter says, "Goodnight Daddy, I love you," or my right hand, Jürgen, tells me, "We have defeated the cartel. You now control all of North America's major drug routes." I wouldn't trade a second with my incredible family for all the money in your bank account, sir. I also wouldn't trade it for my own bank account, which has much more money than that in it (because of the drugs). This beautiful moment is worth more than your entire net worth. Literally. I keep $ 92 billion in the lining of the couch I am sitting on. The money is from drugs.Image: Shutterstock / Dragon ImagesIf you're interested in being
truly wealthy, Mr. Bezos, I do have some advice for you: Make time for family dinners. Don't put work first. Don't force everything into a schedule. Be spontaneous. Take a break! Kill your competitors using paid assassins, and then kill those assassins to cover your tracks. Invent a really bad drug and sell it for a lot of money. Taking a walk with your family is the best investment you can make, Jeff. Besides paying off police forces so you can run drugs between countries without profit loss, that is.Image: Shutterstock / Dragon ImagesRemember: being wealthy on paper is less of a blessing than it is a curse, my friend. Be careful it doesn't make you lose sight of what really matters: your incredible family. Also it is bad for me because the IRS will see my drug money and I will go to jail for a long time, possibly forever.
