1) Short thread to clarify a few things:

Just to set the record straight; I don't come on twitter and bang the drums of liberty and then walk back into RL and violate the principles that I espouse here!
2) Unlike many, I don't say #TaxationIsTheft and then go pay Income Tax. I stopped paying them in the 1990s despite the duress and hardships that the gov't tried very hard to inflict onto me.

This is where @jkenney gets his wrong headed info about defined benefit pension plans. The MP plan is the worst example. Remember, public sector DB plans generally have 50/50 employee/employer contributions.

Before 2016 the MP plan had a 96%/4% contribution split. #ABLeg

Failures led to the changing American paradigm shift that brought us @realDonaldTrump , #QAnon and loss of faith in the media.

Would anyone be interested in my doing a @Shem_Infinite - style breakdown?

It’s a 500 page academic paper so it would be long...but there’s a lot of-
