Like so many others who want to impose the same socialist paradise that has been such a glowing success in places like Cuba and Venezuela, this guy is a fraud. The only problem he has with the gap between the rich and the poor is that it is not wide enough. These clowns are all about maintaining the illusion that they care about the common man and woman while they live in walled compounds to make sure they do not encounter any who are not on the servant staff.
Carlos Maza doesn’t like rich people. The social media socialist with more than 150,000 followers on Twitter and YouTube combined regularly uses his platforms to rail against the wealthy and powerful and urges fans to be skeptical of their opinions. “Just found out James Carville — who spends his time lecturing Democrats for being ‘too far left’ — lives in an absolutely obscene four-story mansion,” Maza said in one such example from February — blasting the longtime Democratic strategist and posting a photo of Carville’s old home to his Twitter account. “Dear god can we STOP taking political advice from the ultra-wealthy,” he bemoaned. “You really have to respect this guy’s grift. Constantly dressing in normal clothes on TV to feign relatability [sic] while living like this. Masterful con artist” “We should treat gay people the SAME WAY we treat straight people: Eating them when they get too rich,” he said in another post. Like any good online socialist, Maza raises money for his internet presence through a Patreon account, where “comrades” — a word Carlos uses to describe his supporters — can fund him in increments of $2, $5 and $10 a month. But if Maza wants to start eating the rich — he may have to have to begin with his own family. Through his clan, the millennial firebrand is connected to multiple Florida mega-mansions, a $7.1 million pad on the Upper West Side purchased under an LLC — and a yacht by luxury boat-maker Donzi. Maza’s mother Vivian Maza was one of the first employees at Ultimate Software, a Florida-based behemoth which now employs more than 5,000 people. Starting in 1990 as an office manager, she ultimately rose to become the group’s chief people officer in 2004. In addition to her day job, Vivian Maza also developed a very close personal relationship with company founder Scott Scherr — so close that an independent assessment of the company in 2016 cited the relationship as a “corporate governance concern.” The report said they believed the pair to be “more than just co-workers” and have a “familial relationship.” The two later became engaged, and the couple has lived together for years, with Scherr being a de facto stepfather to Carlos. Public records show Vivian, Scott, Carlos and sister Isabel all registered to vote at a five-bedroom, eight-bathroom waterfront palace in Boca Raton, Florida. The property sold in 2018 for $10.8 million according to realty website Zillow. Scherr also unloaded a four-bed, four-bath home in 2015 mansion in Weston, Florida, for $1,850,000 in 2015.YouTube socialist Carlos Maza slams the wealthy but lived in luxury
I was watching a mother’s panel on fox news this morning, and one of the ladies mentioned a website called bernietax.com. Out of curiosity, I took a look at it. And based on what he presents there, my disposable income would be almost 100 dollars a week more. Sounds great, right? If you ignore the reality that what is presented there is utter nonsense, you might be tempted to support the Sanders candidacy. If you can overlook the fact that his proposals would double or even triple the federal budget, it is easy to convince yourself that middle and lower-income taxpayers will pay less under a Sanders administration. You also might want to check to see if someone has mixed peyote into your weed.
Bernie has become quite adept at dodging the question of the price tag of all the “free” stuff he keeps promising the gullible and the stupid. Health care, as proposed by Sanders, would cost more than the entire current federal budget. He also wants to cancel all student loan debt, make college free for everyone, and provide universal pre-k for all. When pressed for details, he merely says the rich and the corporations will pay their “fair share.” No, they won’t. Economics 101: Companies never pay a penny in tax. They include it in their cost of doing business and pass it on to their customers. The rich and their money will run for the proverbial hills should this buffoon get elected, and the only ones who will benefit will be the tax havens.
But Bernie lives in a fantasy world. In his world, Castro was cool because he taught his subjects to read and write before he imprisoned and shot them for doing just that. Cuba was such a beautiful place to live that thousands risked their lives to get here on literally anything that would float. In Bernie’s world China is a paragon of progress and prosperity as long as you can ignore the imprisonment, torture, and murder of millions. The people of Hong Kong are not impressed. They are getting beaten, teargassed, and shot in the streets for having the audacity to protest the Beijing interference on their island. Unlike Sanders and his idiot followers, they are not interested in the Chinese socialist paradise.
It will be interesting to see tonight at the Democratic debate if the other candidates take advantage of the free oppo research the DNC has instructed its minions in the press to trumpet. Not that all this stuff isn’t true. But the Democrats and their propagandist media are becoming quite proficient at releasing information and videos at a time expertly calculated to do those they oppose the most harm.
But in Bernie’s world, he is going to get the nomination and beat President Trump. But the reality is that should he get the nomination, it would be a forty state landslide for President Trump. And the powers that be in the DNC know that. I have a feeling that as long as Sanders is in this race, he will be targeted in a way that is usually reserved for Republican Supreme Court nominees and Donald Trump. Welcome to the real world, Bernie.
I know. Bernie is surging in the polls. Biden looks out of Gas. The race in South Carolina, which Biden was supposed to win handily, is now within reach for Sanders. But Bernie is no longer the amusing left wingnut sideshow he once was. He is on track to take down the Democratic Party as their nominee. While at the moment it seems that there is no way to stop him, the long knives are out for the socialist interloper. The Party lapdogs in the MSM are already attacking him with the type of vitriol and venom usually reserved for President Trump.
Interviews are appearing all of a sudden showing Sanders defending some of the vilest dictators the world has ever known. When he is finally challenged on just how he plans on paying for what the Socialist Senator is proposing, he has no idea. His Medicare for all boondoggle will cost 30 trillion dollars by his own reckoning, which tells me the cost would be much higher. When pushed on the cost of this and the rest of his plan, he gives a vague disingenuous answer that it will be less than the cost of the current system.
Of course, most thinking people know that Bernie is a fraud. And he is not even a very convincing fraud. He has been able to peddle his idiotic proposals with the blessings of the DNC for some time. They were able to swat him aside with the Hillary Clinton cudgel in 2016. But Joe Biden, who was supposed to fulfill that role in this election cycle, isn’t up to the task.
Watch for the emergence of more realistic analyses of what Bernie is proposing in the now unleashed press. Watch for the attacks on the debate stage, not only from the other candidates but from the moderators. Bloomberg took much of the fire that would have been directed at the frontrunner in the last debate. But everyone will have their marching orders. It will be amusing to watch.
To begin with, I did not watch. From what I’ve seen in the morning shows on CBS and FOX News there was nothing new other than Castro’s announcement that he was going to start buying votes. He is not content with the usual Democratic method of promising something for nothing with no clue how to pay for it. No, taking a page from the Al Capone school of politics, his campaign is sending cash to people.
I heard this morning that a whole bunch of lawyers have looked at this and declared that it’s all fine and dandy and we know that if the lawyers say it’s okay then it must be so, right? Well then someone will have to explain to the American people just when bribery became legal in the election process because when you strip away the Orwellian Clintonisms and legalistic rhetoric that is all it is – 1930’s Chicago style cash for votes bribery.
WHO’S GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THIS?
And when will someone in the press seriously pursue the question of how any of these wild giveaway schemes they are all promoting in one guise or another are going to be paid for? Dizzy Lizzy Warren says, “It will be paid for by the people at the very top.” Not to pick on this nit more than the rest of the wits, just how would that work? Even if you could confiscate their entire net worth you would not even come close to funding this utopian dream of yours.
So where will the funding come from? The same place it always comes from. You and I. What does that mean? Well let’s look at this in terms of a single paycheck. If you currently make 700.00 a week you are probably taking home between 500.00 and 600.00 per week for a forty hour workweek at current tax rates. As the burden of paying for an ever expanding government bureaucracy-because it’s not big enough already-so that all of this can be offered to those who will not work, be prepareto see that paycheck take-home shrink to 350.00 or less.
But hey! At least you will not have a healthcare premium to pay.
