Your solution would be then ... RAISE TAXES, RAISE TAXES!

My cumulative tax rate is somewhere between 40 and 60%.

I pay income taxes 25% and 8%
I pay Property Taxes
I pay sales taxes
I pay gasoline taxes

If people realized how much in taxes they were actually paying, they wouldn't revolt. Luckily for the government, they hide taxes so you don't notice.

What we need are rule in place that if you are applying for H1B Visa workers, you have to prove you have done qualified job search for the positions and found NO workers to fill them. Make the Corporations prove they actually need the workers before issuing a single H1B visa. Right now, they just say it, and it is so.

The problem isn't H1B visas, the problem is that we have record unemployment and are still importing workers from outside to take the jobs of those workers still trying to earn a living.

If it turns out that Ms. Cordray donates heavily to charities that help the poor, for example, that might be considered a libelous statement of fact.

Nope. Donating to the poor could simply be a means to court favor in public opinion. I can fully defend my previous claim "who cares nothing for her fellow humans" simply by pointing out all the reasons this is bad, and noting that no human being would be exempted, thus she doesn't care a whit about anyone, regardless of her donating however much to poor people. She cares more about making a buck than taking any measures to protect even one person.

Good luck winning a tort claim with that approach. And if she did sue me, I would use that as additional evidence that she doesn't care, by trying to squelch negative reviews, something she doesn't afford anyone else of in her approach, thus proving she doesn't care about anyone but herself.

No, your "Capitalism at its finest" (sarcasm, I get it) was a swipe at Capitalism. On the other hand you have socialism at its finest, which you'll likely ignore. I'll take Capitalism at its finest over Socialism at its finest. Especially if the worst we can do is SPAM ourselves with click-bait advertisement sites on our cell phones.

For the past 50 years, Blacks have been a voting block of 90% for (D). In the past 50 years (two full generations) very little, if any, progress has been made. I've seen the "Black Lives" matter crowd, who seem to only defend criminals with racist (Its cultural) rants about their own people. It is as if they are saying "Black people are criminals, because they are black". The most racist comments are the ones that indicate that blacks cannot help themselves, and must rely upon the government to give them everything they need, because, well, they can't figure it out for themselves (more or less).

You see people who are actually trying to change the status quo, by giving black people the ability to leave their crappy lives behind, only to be shot down as "racist", indicating that blacks need to stay in their ghettos because well that is where they belong.

Just because something is cultural doesn't mean it is good for the people. Culturally, blacks are still enslaved by white task masters, who let only a few out on occasion when it suits the purposes of keeping the rest of the blacks enslaved to the status quo.

The most racist people I know, are black liberals who hate success using terms like "Uncle Tom" in attempts to drag black people back to the ghetto.

You should modify it to say In My Opinion, because your opinion is free speech. Hearsay "I have it on good authority" means that they can compel your source in court, when suing you for liable or slander. And if you are knowingly spreading false reports (made up shit) you are subject to libel and slander tort.

In My Opinion, Peeple co-founder Julia Cordray is a greedy bitch who sees noting wrong with a platform that allows unreliable, anonymous character assassination. She is a worthless twat and a horrible human being who cares nothing for her fellow humans.

So, your solution is to regulate the shit out of every last detail, and have government approve of everything we do, and we can't do it without government approval.

How about we vote with our wallets? If you want to see the latest click bait "Wardrobe malfunction" article, by all means click it. You get what you deserve.
