How To Get Our Money Back
A little wealth tax goes a long way.
Last week’s viral video earned us a spot on Trae Crowder’s (aka The Liberal Redneck) Weekly Skews show. I talked about the Warren wealth tax plan and how a little tax fairness could go a long way when a few people at the top have all our money. Here’s the show:

The Holler is going to keep pumping out short videos with a pro-working class message aimed at hippies and rednecks everywhere. We’re doing this from our perch on the Ohio River in Appalachia. If that’s the kind of political media you like, sponsor our labor with a modest donation at our digital tip jar pretty please!
And if you have issues you want put to video, please pop off in the comment section!
Have an excellent Labor Day weekend. I’ll be joining a Labor Day rally celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the Battle of Blair Mountain in West Virginia. Miners took up arms against extractive coal monopolies to secure their rights and enjoy the fruits of their labor. They identified themselves by wearing red bandanas around their necks, giving the term “redneck” a unique pro-working class symbolism.
As you’re doing what you’re doing, please take a moment to remember those who fought for the good life, and recommit yourself in your own way to keeping it alive now.
Take it easy! But take it!
