Way to go..only about 2 years behind on the story. Maybe the media will next come through with some breaking news that Bill Clinton had ties to Jeffrey Epstein. Maybe, just maybe, Facebook and Twitter shouldn’t be burying stories and suspending accounts before they know any of the facts?
Hypocrisy and Double Standards Are the Foundation of the Democrat Party
Random Thoughts of the Day
A lot of us remember seeing a young Bill Gates testifying in the Microsoft Antitrust case brought by the Clinton Justice Department in the 90s. Gates was arrogant, condescending, and bitter. He felt entitled and openly mocked the lawsuit against his company. To refresh your memory, the case centered around Microsoft’s packaging of Internet Explorer directly with Windows. Microsoft had done many underhanded, monopolistic things throughout its history, but to go after the Internet Explorer issue was completely ridiculous. Anyone who works in technology could tell you it was easy to install the competing product, Netscape, which is exactly what most did as Internet Explorer was slow and clunky. The real truth is that Bill Gates didn’t play the game right. He didn’t make major political contributions. He didn’t spout the standard liberal socialist talking points. Gates simply concentrated on taking over the world of technology, and Bill Clinton made him pay!
The lesson was learned though, not just for him, but all billionaires and big corporate CEOs–play the Washington game or your business is in jeopardy. This is why you often see corporations making big contributions to both parties, spouting calls for big government and “woke” BS that has nothing to do with their companies. It’s why you hear Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Jeff Bezos publicly supporting higher taxes, while they take advantage of every tax break & loophole in the book.
These people didn’t get to where they are by being stupid, and all of them know you can get away with almost anything if you publicly play the game to keep socialist politicians and their woke mob supporters at bay.
Bill Gates sounds a lot like Howard Schultz and Warren Buffett when he recently said he should pay higher taxes and didn’t deserve his wealth, but I notice none of them are writing additional checks to the government. Gates was very anti-government in the 1990s when Bill Clinton’s Justice Department was hitting Microsoft with antitrust action. He’s finally learned like other billionaires if you spout Socialist talking points and contribute to all the right liberal politicians, you’ll be left alone to practice capitalism and use every tax break in the books to compound your wealth.
