The Guardian expressed it thusly:

$2.1 Trillion of the worlds wealth was erased on June 24, 2016.
Well, it was actually $2.09 Trillion.  We are supposed to be saddened; what a horrible decision Brexit was we are to think… In one day it cost the world $2.1 Trillion dollars…..

Sad face  😦

But if you google $2.1 trillion (as I did for this article) you fail to find yesterday… (until I post this and then it will miraculously appear, thanks to Google)….

But you do see that $2.1 Trillion was ERASED from the world’s wealth as of August 26th, 2015.  Do you remember that?  I didn’t. Had to have my memory jogged.  But it did happen. and yet we can’t remember it?

You see that as of March 2015, US corporations were stashing $2.1 Trillion overseas to avoid taxes, something the Panama Papers showed us was endemic.  Have you missed that?  Apparently it is ongoing and is not such a great problem that anything has been done to solve it…

We find that in the last 6 years, our economy has only grown by $2.1`Trillion, while our debt has mushroomed $9 Trillion over the same time.   And life goes on, it really can’t be that much of a deal….

If anyone looks at the losses on the big exchanges and sees that they averaged down by 3.5% yesterday, with a little math, you would know then that the total global equity is then 60 trillion.  2.1 of which disappeared yesterday, and will eventually return.

Did your world change yesterday?  I have yet to find anyone’s whose did…..

Which means that $2.1 trillion as a part of wealth’s pie is inconsequential… They don’t miss it really, it comes and goes quite readily.

So that is the portion we need to shift through our tax laws from the elite back to society… We could probably do a lot more, but that would be a start that no one really could complain is costing too much…

But just for the record, if you took that non essential $2.1 trillion and divided it equally among all 7 billion of the world’s population, you would be printing 7 billion cashiers checks for $300 American dollars apiece.  That would go a long way in some of our most impoverished continents… Large families would do well.  Even in the US, a family of 4 would get a free $1200.

Yet no one cares when the rich people lose it… Even they don’t care…

So why are we not taxing sufficiently to meet our societies’ needs?  It is the one single thing everyone in the entire world needs to do…. Tax those who have the money…..

(At this point, some dork always says…. and give to the poor.)

No… build things. Lots of things and put your poor people to work making a decent living while doing something amazingly great for mankind….

By the way…. Bill Clinton put the cost at $3 billion for completely eliminating hunger in the world…. Brexit just eliminated 700 times that amount…. and no one really felt a thing… Think about that for a second….  Then think of what if feels like when YOU haven’t eaten for about 2 hours… then think about perpetual hunger, and that no one cares that we lost $2.1 trillion of the world’s equity wealth.

There is so much we can do…. We need to get started and to get started we need to change the tax laws so the rich pay more… Period… and there is no issue that cannot be fixed by doing this…. Every issue is money centered and we have the money… It’s just in the wrong account!…. Move it over and let’s get started….

Is the fact that Delaware’s most qualified candidate got 186 votes.  It goes to show the ineffectiveness of running on a third party ticket against an incumbent and the challenger from the previous election before.

It was a noble effort and had an unbelievable amazing amount of support from those outside his district who unfortunately were not able to vote for that candidate.  I think it does point out the prejudice many people have to third parties here in America.  “If you truly were a good candidate, you’d be on the ballot of one of the major parties, so therefore you can’t be that good, especially if I’ve never heard of you.” … I think that line best sums up the thought-process of most average Americans when they go into a booth and decide which button to push…..

It also does show that although voting (for us who love politics) is a never ending passion, it is an enthusiasm that many of our neighbors do not share… When we espouse the absolutely necessity of certain events taking, because they lead to other events to follow which will better their lives, their eyes glaze and they give it as much worth as if the Titans had to beat the Jaguars for your fantasy team to excel….

And it may be for the best.  Our blogging world as lagged without Steve’s daily input. Fights that should have seen the light of day, have languished without the right set of eyes to pull them out from their hiding holes… Perhaps it is better that the brilliance and wisdom of Steve be not confined to the floor of our General Assembly where a coalition could effectively bottle it up and silence it, but be strewn again to the winds of cyberspace where unlimited possibilities lie for it to land and become fertile. An active activist can not be an activist unless he remains active (or something like that).

He will surprisingly find that very few of his acquaintance will ever know the outcome… If they ask, just say you fell short and leave it at that.  That is all they want to know anyway, is if their Steve is back…  The rest of the world goes on, and if you quickly forget, so will they….. (That will be your biggest surprise; how quickly you fit right back into old and people don’t even seem to know you’ve been away.)

Through Steve’s and Catherine’s endeavor to try to launch through a third party, I have received insight….  Money.  One needs a sponsor, a patron with a pocket book, to first build a party; one needs mailers comparable to the other two parties arriving on doorsteps and mailboxes first outlining the need for a third party; and to arrive in off- times long before the election, when one does not automatically throw every lit drop piece in the trash, and is so grateful for a piece of mail, they will actually read it….  Build the idea of a third party first, and see if they will come…

As for a name, from watching this cycle I now lean more to the Greens than either Independents or Libertarians as a name to head the third party… However to counter the notion that Greens are a flaky liberal party of unrealistic aspirations, I would change the name to the Green Money party… (how can anyone not like green money) and a platform as this:  we are for the growth of small businesses, people’s prosperity, which are done in ways to enhance the environment, not destroy it.

Something along those lines…  Could we launch a third party in time for 2016?  We’d need 40,000 people and then in Delaware we could no longer be ignored.  Though not capable of winning on our own, we would by playing off one party against the other, make them both forced to listen to us.  One would think, at least.
