TRUMP’S INFRASTRUCTURE SCAM

Our country is in dire need of massive investments in infrastructure, but what Donald Trump is proposing is nothing more than a huge tax giveaway for the rich.

1. It’s a giant public subsidy to developers and investors. Rather than taxing the wealthy and then using the money to fix our dangerously outdated roads, bridges, airports, water systems, Trump wants to give rich developers and Wall Street investors tax credits to encourage them to do it That means that for every dollar they put into a project, they’d actually pay only 18 cents and we would contribute the other 82 cents through our tax dollars.

2. We’d be turning over public roads and bridges to private corporations who will charge us expensive tolls and earn big profits. These tolls will be set high in order to satisfy the profit margins demanded by elite Wall Street investors. So—essentially—we pay twice – once when we subsidize the developers and investors with our tax dollars, and then secondly when we pay the tolls and user fees that also go into their pockets.

3. We get the wrong kind of infrastructure. Projects that will be most attractive to Wall Street investors are those whose tolls and fees bring in the biggest bucks – giant mega-projects like major new throughways and new bridges. Not the thousands of smaller bridges, airports, pipes, and water treatment facilities most in need of repair. Not the needs of rural communities and smaller cities and towns too small to generate the tolls and other user fees equity investors want. Not clean energy.

To really make America great again we need more and better infrastructure that’s for the public – not for big developers and investors. And the only way we get that is if corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes.

More Random Requests

People need to stop hating groups from the big 3 for being more popular. The big 3 became the big 3 because they were better at making music, promoting, creating new concepts than smaller companies, they weren’t handed the success and money, literally any company can achieve what the big 3 achieved by being as good at the big 3 are, they earned to have a easier way for new groups and bts, vixx, aoa, girlfriend etc are the biggest proof you don’t need to be a group from the big 3 to make it big

Taylor Swift's Songwriting For Calvin Harris And Little Big Town Could Earn Her Millions

By Hugh McIntyre

For a little while there, it looked as if the second half of 2016 was going to be missing any music from Taylor Swift, but like it or not, the country-turned-pop singer-songwriter has found her way onto the airwaves yet again, though not in the same manner in which the public is accustomed to. The powerful musician and pop star has written a pair of songs this year that have both gone on to quickly become true hits, and their successes could mean big bucks for Swift, even in an “off year,” as if there was ever such a thing when it came to her.

The first smash Swift scored this in 2016 was “This Is What You Came For,” a song sheoriginally published under a pseudonym. The “Blank Space” singer gave the track to her then-boyfriend EDM producer Calvin Harris, who invited Rihanna to take on vocal duties. The song wasted no time in rising on the charts all around the world, and since it peaked at No. 3 here in the States, the song has sold millions of copies, racked up hundreds of millions of streams and it was a radio favorite for months on end.

More recently, country music group Little Big Town revealed that their new single “Better Man” was also penned by Swift herself. The song is the first to be released off their upcoming album The Breaker, which is expected sometime in 2017. The revelation that somebody as well known as Swift was involved helped rocket “Man” up the charts, certifying it as a hit in the country world in no time. The song has thus far peaked at No. 53 on the Hot 100 and No. 6 on the genre-specific Hot Country Songs tally.

The success enjoyed by these two songs could net Swift a pretty healthy payday and up her earnings for the year. According to a source with a deep understanding of Swift’s publishing situation, a top five smash on the Hot 100 could earn a songwriter—any songwriter, not just one as famous and beloved as Swift—around $500,000 or $600,000 over time, and a No. 1 hit on the country charts could bring in about the same amount. Now, “Better Man” hasn’t yet made it to the top of the country tally, but it’s close, and with names like Little Big Town and Taylor Swift attached to it, anything is possible for the new single.

The source suggests that a fair estimate when it comes to Swift’s earnings as a songwriter from these two tracks alone could be close to $1 million, and that’s not even the full story. The 10-time Grammy winner could earn even more dough from “This Is What You Came For” and “Better Man” from technical sources and because of the fact that she owns a part of her own publishing, so the total could be significantly north of that $1 million figure when all is said and done.

It is worth noting that for almost the entirety of her career, Swift’s songwriting prowess has been proven through her own songs, though when she’s in between campaigns, she decided to hand off her lyrics to others. It is possible that the pop singer specifically opted to gift these tracks, and, importantly, to let the public know she was behind them, in a year when she wasn’t busy promoting anything or touring, where the majority of her money comes from. Between 2015 and mid-2016, Swift brought in an incredible $170 million, which made her the highest-earning celebrity in the world. She probably won’t hit the same high point when FORBES refreshes that annual list come summer 2017, but the fractions of cents she earns every time both “Better Man” and “This Is What You Came For” are played on the radio, streamed on certain platforms or even purchased on iTunes will add up and are sure to keep her living well, even during her “downtime.“

By far, the most valuable toys are the ones that were recalled because of a change in production method, error/misprint, or potential to kill your child<. One particular Jawa figure is heralded as the “holy grail” of collectibles because, we shit you not, its cape is made from vinyl instead of cloth. It’s the same with some early models of Luke, Obi-Wan, and Darth Vader, which came packaged with flimsy-looking lightsabers. As a result of complaints, the lightsabers were switched out and the shitty versions became ultra-rare.

They’re the same figures, but produced in different ways. One will make you rich. The other won’t. And there’s no way that you can tell what valuable treasures are going to be recalled until after they’ve been thrown into a furnace, ala Toy Story 3.

If there’s any Force Awakens toy that’ll earn you big bucks, it’ll be this figure of Kylo, which was accidentally packaged into a Captain Phasma box.

If you think that’s a dumb thing to cherish and one day pay fistfuls of galactic credits for, welcome to the exciting and fickle world of collecting Star Wars toys.

Why Modern ‘Collectible’ Toys Are A Total Scam

My friend went out on sunday and was too poor to get a cab home because he lives so far away so he decided to start a 4hour journey at 3am walking from south side to north side of brisbane and on the way jumped into the hungry jacks playground (where we work), walked past a cop car who he had a quick joke with where they told him to stop walking so fast or he’d go over the speed limit….he asked them for a lift home but they said no obviously so he kept on his journey, made it to a maccas and (because he had no money) asked them if he could work for half an hour for food sO McDonald’s let this drunk guy work for them until he’d done enough to earn a big mac and off he went with his burger towards home…..later on he saw what he thought was another cop car only to find out it was the sAME two guys and my friend again asked nicely if they could drop him home, NOw by this time the cops started to look pretty pissed, muttered something to one another and got out, got my friends details, threw him on the bonnet and handcuffed him, my friend basically shits himself as they throw him in the back of the car (he’s a (usually) smart kid and can’t get a record) and turn there sirens on speeding off through many sets of traffic lights… they drive around for a while then next thing you know they’re at my friends house, turn around and say to him “don’t worry mate we were only fuCKING WITH YOU, go to bed” and if that isn’t the most auscore story you ever heard im deleting

How the Peoples Party Prevailed in 2020

Third parties have rarely posed much of a threat to the dominant two parties in America. So how did the People’s Party win the U.S. presidency and a majority of both houses of Congress in 2020?

It started four years before, with the election of 2016.

As you remember, Donald Trump didn’t have enough delegates to become the Republican candidate, so the GOP convention that summer was “brokered” – which meant the Party establishment took control, and nominated the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.

Trump tried to incite riots but his “I deserve to be president because I’m the best person in the world!” speech incited universal scorn instead, and he slunk off the national stage (his last words, shouted as he got into his stretch limousine, were “Fu*ck you, America!”)

On the Democratic side, despite a large surge of votes for Bernie Sanders in the final months of the primaries, Hillary Clinton’s stable of wealthy donors and superdelegates put her over the top.

Both Republican and Democratic political establishments breathed palpable sighs of relief, and congratulated themselves on remaining in control of the nation’s politics.

They attributed Trump’s rise to his fanning of bigotry and xenophobia, and Sanders’s popularity to his fueling of left-wing extremism. 

They conveniently ignored the deeper anger in both camps about the arbitrariness and unfairness of the economy, and about a political system rigged in favor of the rich and privileged.

And they shut their eyes to the anti-establishment fury that had welled up among independents, young people, poor and middle-class Democrats, and white working-class Republicans.

So they went back to doing what they had been doing before. Establishment Republicans reverted to their old blather about the virtues of the “free market,” and establishment Democrats returned to their perennial call for “incremental reform.”

And Wall Street, big corporations, and a handful of billionaires resumed pulling the strings of both parties to make sure regulatory agencies didn’t have enough staff to enforce rules, and to pass the Trans Pacific Partnership.

Establishment politicians also arranged to reduce taxes on big corporations and simultaneously increase federal subsidies to them, expand tax loopholes for the wealthy, and cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for it all. (“Sadly, we have no choice,” said the new President, who had staffed the White House and Treasury with Wall Streeters and corporate lobbyists, and filled boards and commissions with corporate executives).

Meanwhile, most Americans continued to lose ground. 

Even before the recession of 2018, most families were earning less than they’d earned in 2000, adjusted for inflation. Businesses continued to shift most employees off their payrolls and into “on demand” contracts so workers had no idea what they’d be earning from week to week. And the ranks of the working poor continued to swell.

At the same time, CEO pay packages grew even larger, Wall Street bonus pools got fatter, and a record number of billionaires were becoming multi-billionaires.

Then, of course, came the recession, along with bank losses requiring another round of bailouts. The Treasury Secretary, a former managing director of Morgan Stanley, expressed shock and outrage, explaining the nation had no choice and vowing to “get tough” on the banks once the crisis was over.

Politics abhors a vacuum. In 2019, the People’s Party filled it.

Its platform called for getting big money out of politics, ending “crony capitalism,” abolishing corporate welfare, stopping the revolving door between government and the private sector, and busting up the big Wall Street banks and corporate monopolies.

The People’s Party also pledged to revoke the Trans Pacific Partnership, hike taxes on the rich to pay for a wage subsidy (a vastly expanded Earned Income Tax Credit) for everyone earning below the median, and raise taxes on corporations that outsource jobs abroad or pay their executives more than 100 times the pay of typical Americans.

Americans rallied to the cause. Millions who called themselves conservatives and Tea Partiers joined with millions who called themselves liberals and progressives against a political establishment that had shown itself incapable of hearing what they had been demanding for years.

The rest, as they say, is history.
