Well, she nailed THAT to the door of the church and no mistake.
Today is the 75th anniversary of the start of the Nuremberg trials that prosecuted Nazis. What better time for Biden to prepare to launch Nuremberg style trials on January 21 that bring Trump, his appointees, and other enablers to justice.
Biden failing to prosecute will embolden the GOP to bring forth more tax cuts.
It not just tax losses that lead to loss of life. It the very concept of the Multi-National Corporation along with all of those "free trade’ deals.
By design they extract the wealth of nations and send that wealth back to their head offices as profit and as a return for their shareholders. If a gold miner in El Salvador works in a gold mine owned by Barrick Mining in Toronto , he is paid a pittance and forced to work and die in unsafe conditions so that Barrick mining can extract profits. These profits are extracted at the cost of people lives even if taxes paid on them.
There are children and people dying on a daily basis working in factories in India or on coconut oil plantations in Burma all so that someone living thousands of miles away can profit off their labor.
Capitalism itself is lives lost.
