    I don't believe that to be true at all. No doubt you have some proof for this assertion?

    Yes, most wealthy households are Democrat,

    and well over half of the billionaires are Democrat.

    Democrats have Wall Street, Hollywood, and Big Tech.

    Democrats and Republicans share Big Pharma, Big Insurance, and the Military-Defense Contracting Industries.

    Republicans have Big Oil, and Big Rifles, Handguns, and Firearm Ammunition.

    On the whole, Democrats control most of the wealth in this country, and most of the wealthy people and wealthy households are Democrat.

    I highly doubt Democrats have wall street. Hollywood sure, and to an extent the tech industry.

    Maybe we should thread split this one so it doesn't derail the 737 conversation.

    Do you not remember Goldman Sach's continuous support of Hillary Clinton?

    Just where do you think Wall Street is located?

    There is nothing the New York rich like so much as to pretend they care about the poor.

    In fact, it is a running sport for the children, adult children or real children, of New York multi-millionaires, to pose as poor or struggling have nots.

    No proof, just an opinion.

    That was the last Presidential election, hence still relevant.

    But, for fun, current New York Congress people overwhelmingly Democrat.

    Current New York Governor, Democrat.

    Wall Street, the power money players in New York, are also overwhelmingly Democrat.

    Republicans make easy targets because they say goofy Evangelical Christian magic mumbo jumbo bullshit.

    But, Democrats have the Muslims, and slightly more Catholics and Jews than the Republicans.

    And, in addition to the Muslims and existing Catholics in the Democratic Party base,

    The Democrats are absorbing a lot of Hispanic immigrants, most of whom are every bit as religious as the Evangelical Christians.

    And the Muslims are the gold medal winners for stupid and extreme religious positions that they think everybody should have to bow to, and they are for the most part firmly Democrat.

    I also regard people with transgender beliefs the same as I do people with religious beliefs.

    Mind over matter only goes so far, believe what you want, but I will stick with scientific and empirical realities.

    There is a very small percentage of the transgender population that have a genetic mutation, or a testosterone insensitivity, etc.

    The rest of the transgender population are just exercising the same kind of fantasy type belief

    as those who state that their prayers do anything to the world around them,

    or that their religious beliefs must be acknowledged as "true".

    And the transgender population is mostly Democrat.

    So, both the Democrat and Republican Parties are filled with pushy people who insist other people should have to believe or act like they believe their favorite unicorns, leprechauns, magic beliefs, etc are true.

    And it is actually growing increasingly difficult to peg either the Democrats or the Republicans as the pushier or sillier party when it comes magical belief system pushiness.

    I totally missed that this is now a criminal investigation, allegedly.

    The usual unnamed sources and refusals to comment grains of salt apply, but Seattle Times is certainly frothy on the matter, with several self-referential stories.
