Democrat Senator’s Son Calls Him On The Carpet Over Taxes

Perhaps a bit over the top, family-wise.

With Thanksgiving coming up we all may have to gird our loins for family political controversy. As awkward as it is, thrice divorced aunt Marge could decide to regale the assembled clan with tales of her exploits at her latest woke march. Cousin Brad may counter with his MAGA hat, which he refuses to remove at the table.

Grandfather and grandmom, the likely hosts of the meal, may just want everyone to calm down, especially college freshman Pat whose announced gender has changed 3 times in the past year and is now telling various parents, including its own, what criminals they were for breeding in the first place.

Ah yes, and it’s good to know that senatorial households are not spared, as multimillionaire limo liberal Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon is taken to task by his multimillionaire hedge fund manager son. Though, one wonders if junior got a lot of advantages from dad’s money and power? If so, isn’t it a little crass to be calling out dad publicly on this? Wouldn’t a text be more appropriate between family members?

At least one of my six kids does not agree with me politically and we avoid the subject. She thinks I’m an aged Neanderthal. I know she will grow more conservative when she leaves college and joins the real world. Unless, as is her goal, she joins the State Department. Then, Yikes!

FNC: “Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon and his ‘cronies’were blasted by the senator’s multimillionaire son for hating the ‘American dream.’ Adam Wyden, the Oregon Democrat’s son and a multimillionaire hedge fund manager, put his dad on blast in a Sunday night tweet. The younger Wyden torched legislators for trying to ‘mindlessly and haphazardly’ take things apart.”

“Why does he hate us / the American dream so much?!?!?!?!” the Florida-based hedge fund manager/Wyden the Younger wrote. “Reality is: most legislators have never built anything… so I guess it’s easier to mindlessly and haphazardly try and tear stuff down. Thankfully, I think I can compound faster than my dad and his cronies can confiscate it…” young Wyden added.

The kid’s tweet came as a riposte to a Twitter roast of Senator Wyden by Elon Musk after Wyden the Elder took a shot at the Tesla founder. “Whether or not the world’s wealthiest man pays any taxes at all shouldn’t depend on the results of a Twitter poll,” the Senate Finance Committee chairman wrote. “It’s time for the Billionaires Income Tax.” What was Wyden of the Senate referring to? A goof, which went over Wyden’s head, by Musk.

“Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support this?” Musk asked on Twitter, whose denizens voted in favor of the move. Since the poll Musk has not sold any stock, nor is he likely to. The tax was killed by Joe Manchin.

Clearly Musk isn’t the only elite who understands that there are no measurable results in any of the radicals programs except for those pocketing the money.

It would be so easy for the weak Republicans to just demand the results from any of these Restorative or Social Justice programs that they funnel all our taxes into. They have been doing it for years and when they demand more funds, they just steal them from the mentally ill, veterans or senior causes.

Will they ever demand results from all of our money?

The “supply chain” being manufactured by the Dimsis going to continue to worsen until a few critical thing change!
1. King Barry Obama is somehow REMOVED from the US political scene! PERMANENTLY….
Continuing takeover of US businesses by Blacks is STOPPED!
Until the Dims are STOPPED from buying votes by pandering to Illegal immigrants, career
welfarites, and just plain bums at the expense of productive citizens!

King Barrie Osama Obama now has an excellent scam going! He is running the US into the ground while sleepy Joe is taking the credit for all the shit Barryis instructing Joe to do!

THE WIRST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE US AND TO THE WORLD IS THE PHONY ELECTION OF KING BARRIE OSAMA OBAMA!
