A Scary Halloween Twitter Message from Bernie Sanders

Mars Snickers Bar
Summary:

The successful Mars family, of candy bar fame, is the third wealthiest family in America… and a scary example of a wealth dynasty…

As we pass out Snickers to trick-or-treaters this Halloween, we should pause to ponder the successful Mars family, of candy bar fame. It is, after all, the third wealthiest family in America… and a pretty scary example of a wealth dynasty.

So, um, what kind of taxes do you think they pay? And why does that matter to democracy? As it happens, Bernie Sanders tweeted the answers to those very questions in The Spooky Truth About Your Candy.



Happy Scary Halloween!

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
