Mike's Blog Round Up
August 8, 2020

Off the Kuff: It’s almost as if Texas doesn’t want more members of Congress.

Welcome Back to Gotham City: It’s almost as if Coronavirus should hold a press conference to explain how it will save us from Trump.

Hackwhackers: It’s almost as if you could get a better understanding of the news from a bunch of cartoons.

EPI Blog: It’s almost as if record income inequality is the inevitable outcome of right-wing rule.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
""I have worked with investors for 60 years and I have yet to see anyone--not even when capital gains rates were 39.9 percent in 1976-77--shy away from a sensible investment because of the tax rate on the potential gain. People invest to make money, and potential taxes have never scared them off." (Warren Buffett, August 14, 2011.)
