Most billionaires should be ashamed of themselves!

I just copied this from MarketWatch as it's concise:
Billionaire philanthropy is a ‘PR scam,’ says CEO who raised his workers’ minimum pay to $70,000
Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price, who raised his workers' minimum pay to $70,000 in 2015, recently called philanthropy 'one of capitalism's biggest PR scams.'
The CEO known for increasing his employees’ base annual pay to $70,000 says wealthy people donating their money and getting rewarded with “glowing articles, a hospital named after you and a massive tax write-off” amount to “one of capitalism’s biggest PR scams.”
Dan Price, the CEO of the credit-card processing company Gravity Payments, slammed America’s elites on Twitter TWTR , charging that the average billionaire donates a smaller share of their money to charity each year than the average non-billionaire.
As evidence, Price cited a recent ranking of the biggest charitable contributions of 2020, which included deep-pocketed donors such as Amazon AMZN founder Jeff Bezos. Critics of wealth inequality have pointed out that billionaires have seen their fortunes swell during the pandemic, but the contributions they’ve made to charity represent a tiny fraction of their growing wealth.

Whenever you see a billionaire (or close to) you should make them ashamed of themselves, if you can.

We all should Shame the Super-Rich

We’re talking about all those Super-Rich that minimize the taxes they pay.

The Super-Rich that earn in an hour (some in a MINUTE) more than the average person earns in a year.

The ones that think they are worth it all because they are so GREAT! Even though in fact they just got lucky, or their parents or ancestors were criminals or bullies.

The ones that say they are REALLY SMART and worked REALLY HARD for it and ARE WORTH it! Like there’s nobody that worked harder but didn’t have their luck.

The ones that leak some of their riches to slimy people that, in exchange, tell us we should LOVE our Super-Rich because they create jobs, and they donate to worthy causes but studies show they donate very little and create very few jobs and if they paid more taxes they would do MUCH more good.

Well, if you ever see a Super-Rich or know that they see you, show them your disgust and disdain by (pretending to, as it’s not really nice, and we’re civilized people) spitting on the ground! Or find your own creative way, but show it.

Maybe once they realize they only like themselves among themselves they will do the right thing and make it possible for this Lil TaxMan to distribute more of their money to the good of us all!
