KANSAS CITY CHIEFS OWNER CLARK HUNT AND HIS EPIC INHERITANCE MAKE EXCELLENT CASE FOR SOCIALISM 2020???



Even the Trump Administration realizes that a nation of HAVES VS. HAVE NOTS is UNAMERICAN and betrays the promise of freedom and liberty championed by the Constitution. More to the point, throughout world history po'folk have a tendency of taking out their frustrations on the ruling class and dismantling the unfair and rigged systems that only benefit the status quo. To that end, one of the most informative debates of the 2020 election season will bring arguments about the Trump Economic Boom Vs. Rising Income Inequality. It's one of the very few discussions worth having given that younger voters are seeing a legit choice betwixt socialism vs. capitalism.

Remember that 70% of millennials say they'd vote for a socialist because they don't get a lot of news about formerly working-class people forced to eat pets in Venezuela and simply think the economic debate won't have any impact on the prices of avocado toast. It might.

And all of this brings us to the problem of Clark Hunt.

As far as NFL owners goes, he's pretty good. He has clearly made smart decisions and seems to genuinely care about his team and Kansas City.

However . . . He was born into his good luck and inherited the team and his vast fortune. Like it or not, Clark Hunt isn't a model for unabashed, work-to-eat capitalism that plays well on social media forums.

In a tough election year as American class-stratification grows more distinct and obvious, there's no denying the privilege enjoyed by Clark Hunt. The backstory of an NFL owner might not mean much to football fans more concerned with tailgating and touchdowns but when informed denizens of the discourse REALLY talk about the impact of a Super Bowl win on Kansas City, the question of "equity" is bound to arise. Accordingly, the so-called economic benefit MIGHT help local biz but certainly boosts the bottom line of this fortunate son.

Again, Clark Hunt is a pretty decent owner but the financial reality is that the Kansas City Chiefs are propped up by taxpayer cash that continues to support one of the greatest inheritances in American history and broke-ass locals should probably remember as much when cheering for "the home team" next Sunday.

Clark Hunt is pecuniarily insouciant by way of birth and blood vis a vis sweat and effort (That should piss off my fans!).

Born into the lace, he has no idea what blue collar slugs work through in their day to day existence.

That said, most of the rich people I know are pretty nice and pay their bills, so..., no reason to meet on the tennis court any time soon. So, instead of storming the the Bastille, I think we should Stormi Maya!

^^You can see what the muddle class cares about.

"... throughout world history po'folk have a tendency of taking out their frustrations on the ruling class and dismantling the unfair and rigged systems that only benefit the status quo."

There is a homelessness crises in this country, & claiming that the homeless are all mentally ill drug addicts won't make it go away. Blacks make up only 13% of the population, but 50% of the homeless, which gives you a hint at the real causes. Add a bunch of brown people who feel constantly harassed. vilified & hunted, & you have a class war that looks a lot like a race war, but it will still be a class war & the rich are counting on middle class white men to protect them. Believe me, they will play the Patriotism Card.

Talk of socialism always brings up talk of Venezuela, but never Norway, Sweden, or any of the Democratic Socialist countries, because they don't want to inform, they want to defend the billionaires underpaying their employees & overcharging their customers. As AOC said, "No one earns a billion dollars. They take it."

Yes, some rich people feel a moral obligation to try to make things better & are good men for it. Men like John Kennedy, Jay Rockefeller & your own, Crosby Kember, III. But, their philanthropy doesn't change the basic unfairness of capitalism.

Meanwhile, banks, auto industry & farmers are bailed out with government money & everyone is pretending that this is not socialism.

If you don't start seeing the homeless as your fellow countrymen, then you may lose your country, & you would deserve it.

Clark's grandpa was rated the richest man in the world in mid 1900s. I will assume the family is still doing well. I don't hold it against them. They dumped worlds of meth and kept The Chiefs. And other businesses here.

The real measure is that most fans in KC couldn't ever afford the $7,000 tickets. I love the Chiefs but from a safe distance.

CORPORATE WELFARE, PRESIDENTIAL ASSASSINATION, AND COMMODITY PRICE MANIPULATION

KC Chiefs tickets, parking, food and drink prices to be hiked before next season. Must price gouge silly fanboys to the maximum extent possible.

The Hunt family of Dallas were among those who plotted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Nelson Bunker Hunt, Lamar Hunt, and William Herbert Hunt, the sons of Texas oil billionaire Haroldson Lafayette Hunt, Jr., had for some time been attempting to corner the market in silver. In 1979, the price for silver (based on the London Fix) jumped from $6.08 per troy ounce ($0.195/g) on January 1, 1979 to a record high of $49.45 per troy ounce ($1.590/g) on January 18, 1980, an increase of 713%. The brothers were estimated to hold one third of the entire world supply of silver (other than that held by governments).

In 1988, the brothers were found responsible for civil charges of conspiracy to corner the market in silver. This forced the brothers to declare bankruptcy, in one of the biggest such filings in Texas history.

Leave it to Up-Chuck to argue against himself.

If Nordic Countries aren't socialist, then certainly none of the US Democrats (which are to the right of those examples) are socialist.

And Venezuela as a cautionary model? Nigga please.

Hugo Chavez was poisoned after an ill successful coup by the CIA. Then the CIA put in their man ever since. So if you want to bullshit the public and call that Socialism then fuck off.

There is no excellent case for socialism. There is no good case for socialism. There is not even a bad case for socialism. Socialism is inherently evil and wrong and has never been successful anywhere. Period.

Often I walk down the street asking random people their worth . Followed by how they received it.

8:47PM comment "Jane, you ignorant slut"

(small excerpt) 8:47 repent and seek forgiveness for your stupidity.

This material ties together the links and implications of H L HUNT in the assassination of JOHN F. KENNEDY in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. The evidence set out in this material provides evidence of motive, means, opportunity and links to prime suspects in the JFK assassination that would indicate either an implication in or a set-up as a legend of H. L. HUNT involvement in the covert operation and conspiracy.
H L HUNT was in 1963 one of the richest men in the world. His full name had been Haroldson Lafayette Hunt and liked to go by the name of H. L. Hunt. Based in Dallas, HUNT made his fortune in oil. HUNT developed extreme right wing political views. He supported a movement of DOUGLAS MACARTHUR for President in 1951. HUNT funded and developed two extreme right wing radio shows called the Facts Forum and Life Line. HUNT used these radio shows to support all of the claims made by JOSEPH MCCARTHY in the “communist in every closet” red scare of the 1950s. Radio shows in the 1950’s had much larger audiences and influence than they do in today’s media and news market place. In the early 1950s, TV had not come into being and most people would set around the living room listening to a radio much like people do today with television. These radio programs reached a wide national market and tended to whip people into a hysteria about communism taking over the United States. These propaganda programs also attempted to tie the growing civil rights movement into a communist conspiracy.

HUNT became a large supporter and member of the JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY as well as a supporter and close friend of GENERAL EDWIN WALKER. HUNT also became a supporter and large financial backer of the political career of LYNDON JOHNSON. HUNT also provided funds for the removal by any means including assassination of FIDEL CASTRO in Cuba in covert operations supported by both the CIA and the American mafia. HUNT had been extremely opposed to JOHN F. KENNEDY and his polices concerning communism, Russia and Cuba. He had also been extremely opposed to the JFK proposal to void out wide tax exemptions for people in the oil business which if passed through congress would of cost him millions of dollars in federal income tax.
