Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 23, 2020

Getting rid of Trump means taking seriously "shit-life syndrome""and its resulting misery, which includes suicide, drug overdose death, and trauma for surviving communities. My state of Ohio is home to many shit-life syndrome sufferers. In the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton lost Ohio's 18 electoral votes to Trump. She got clobbered by over 400,000 votes (more than 8%). She lost 80 of Ohio's 88 counties. Trump won rural poorer counties, several by whopping margins. Trump got the shit-life syndrome vote.

Maybe you need to get out of that comfy LA bubble some time?

Because despite the "booming economy" life really isn't that great for the average person.

Many of my childhood friends who stayed in the hometown are living this story.

"Since 1975, practically all the gains in household income have gone to the top 20% of households."

"Thanks Illegal Immigration!"

Nonsense. Thank the tax code that funnels money upward. GRATs, stepped-up basis, inheritance rules, carried interest, and favored rates on LTCGs are just the tip of the iceberg.

So in mackris' world, average means schit life and therefore it's not a concern?

Illegal Immigration affects unskilled wages. To claim otherwise is just an inability to see cause and effect.

"3 generations wipes out inheritance."

The fact inheritors squander money has NO BEARING WHATSOEVER on the inherent advantages. It's insulting to even suggest as much.

'Illegal Immigration affects unskilled wages."

I never said it didn't. I simply said the tax code simply is a much bigger driver, and gave examples of how wealth transfers easier at the top of the scale.

"To claim otherwise is just an inability to see cause and effect."

What a riot: Your two charts actually disprove your claim, especially since one is a raw number, and one is adjusted. 1995-2005 is particularly deadly to your bullschitt.

Trump proves this incorrect.

"Trump proves this incorrect."

You're right.

The truth data is that 90% of family fortunes are wiped out within three generations.
