Slavery Never Existed.

Apparently historians have decided that history needs some editing, specifically during the time period in which Egyptian Pharaohs used ‘slaves’ to build the temples and pyramids. Historians have decided that this is all a myth, that they weren’t really ‘slaves’, they were free laborers, conscripts, who were paid a wage and needed the work.   The basis for this shift is in the term ‘conscript’.   It is not unlike obligatory military service wherein housing and meals are provided in return for labor. Another term used to identify the laborers who built the pyramids is – civil servant. And civil servants require a ‘strong government’ body to … force them into slave labor.

Hmmm.

Is this some weird way of heralding in Social-Communism?

Of course there is the fact that a conscript in the military is not free to leave, as this would be considered AWAL, and grounds for court marshal, the terminology is rather obliquely conveyed to serve a purpose, albeit a strange one.

The entire basis of this new conclusion is the fact that a dozen intact skeletons were found in a shaft constructed of mud and brick behind the Giza pyramids. According to this conclusive evidence, historians conjecture that if they were slaves they would not have been buried, and they had to have been pyramid builders because their grave was behind a pyramid.

YIMINEE.

Interesting logic, not for its conclusion but for its absolute immature irrational thinking process.

Oddly, this same logic would seem not to apply to black slaves in Europe and the US who were buried, many with headstones and inscriptions.   Should we then conclude that the slaves in Europe, the white slaves of the Barbary Coast, and all slaves of history were not really slaves, but simply civil servants, laborers?

A friend shared with me that a man who is of black, white and Hispanic heritage believes that all white men should pay remuneration to all black men because of past slavery.   Of course, given that this man is partially white, wouldn’t his white part have to thus pay all black men?   And if we apply his remuneration logic, wouldn’t his black part have to pay all European whites for their Barbary Coast slave trade?   And given that Spain was considered a pioneer of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, wouldn’t this man’s Hispanic heritage make him libel to his black heritage and all black men?

He’d go broke.

Of course all of this is on the heels of the new agenda in which all white men are brutalized as having ‘white privilege’ for which they must be made to suffer and curl into a ball of shame.    But shame isn’t the real agenda, the real agenda is redistribution of $$$$.   A stage is being set for a special white privilege tax to be levied, lawsuits to erupt, and chaos to ensue.

So let’s do what the historians have done regarding the Egyptian slavery – let’s simply redefine it as civil conscription, i.e. a necessary service in order to build agriculture which benefits everyone…

And women were not really property or chattel, they were laborers who were ‘persuaded’ to have more children so as to benefit society with their added labor and protection.

Problem solved!! Slavery never existed.

Tucker Carlson vs Caroline Heldman – 90% Tax Bracket

Professor Caroline Heldman was on Tucker Carlson advocating for much higher tax rates on the 1%ers, claiming that Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations were examples of what it meant to ‘pay their fair share’.  

Eisenhower: In 1954 the adjusted gross income of all tax returns amounted to about $229 billion, with a total tax liability of about $26.7 billion or roughly 9% tax revenue on all income.

In 2015, the IRS raked in $3.25 Trillion in tax revenue, of that $1.54 Trillion was individual income tax. Total payroll in 2015 was roughly $16 Trillion. That equates to roughly 9% tax on revenue. The same as during the Eisenhower administration.

So what is a fair share?

What is the current distribution of tax revenue? The top 1% of all income earners paid 45.7% of all federal income taxes, but earned 17.1% of all income in the U.S. The top 20% paid 83.9% of all federal income taxes, after earning 51.9% of all income in America. The middle 20% of income earners paid 5.9% of all federal income taxes, but earned 14.8% of all income.

During Eisenhower, the top tier tax rate applied to those making $400,000 which converts to about $3.622 million in today’s dollars. The problem is the fair sharers are using $390,000 as the 1% measure. That would equate to about $38,000 in 1950 which was taxed at roughly 48%.

But even this isn’t a fair measure because it doesn’t account for all the revenue that is diverted out of the US in order to avoid/evade tax.   Income concentration today is roughly the same as it was post The Great Depression in the 1920’s when most of the wealth was held by the top tier elites.   Taxing them to death is not going to create a ‘redistribution’ of wealth, it only means they will ‘evade’ further through tax havens.

Taxing the wealthy is rather simplistic. It doesn’t solve income disparity, it merely means the government is potentially wealthier, thus expanding their already burgeoning expenditures and welfare. In addition, Mz. Heldman failed to note the economic, political, and social courses of the Eisenhower administration.

His cabinet was dubbed ‘eight millionaires and a plumber’. His policies were geared toward the annihilation of communism, securing Iranian oil, threatening China, demanding Russia agree to a reduction of nuclear arms, massive infrastructure spending, fighting the far right GOP good ole boys, promoting technology development, thawing the Cold War, balancing the budget, and putting America First.

He wasn’t the best, made blunders, and had failures, but he had successes too.

That being said, Mz. Heldman’s view is certainly not of the caliber of someone whose education includes a PhD given it was driven without any statistics, proven analysis, or in-depth thinking and deserved the response she got from Carlson – a laugh.

Interestingly, Mz. Heldman has a number of bio’s that offer different accomplishments including co-founder of New Orleans Women’s Shelter, co-founder of critical Response, leadership position with Common Ground, co-founded End Rape on Campus, and more. Oddly; None of these organizations mention her by name as having anything to do with their leadership or founding…?

Her bio also states she wrote a book; The War On Women’s Bodies in 2016 – but oddly it doesn’t come up in any Google search?

Her Occidental bio also states she ‘co-authored’ the book, Rethinking Madame President, when in fact she ‘co-edited’ the book. Oops. It’s important to truthful.
