F Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway were having drinks, when
Fitzgerald told Hemingway, “The very rich are different from you and me.” And Hemingway replied, “Yes, they have more money.”
They’re also dumber:
Barack Obama’s rich supporters fear his tax plans show he’s a class warrior
Some of Barack Obama’s richest supporters fear they have elected a “class warrior” to the White House, who will turn America’s freewheeling capitalism into a more regulated European system.
No sh*t, Sherlock!
it is now dawning on many among them that Mr Obama was serious about his campaign trail promises to bring root and branch reform to corporate America – and that they were more than just election rhetoric.
As Moe says,
You knew and I knew that this was going to happen. You knew and I knew that the upper classes were going to be subject to the Democrats’ faux-populism soon enough. You knew and I knew that they’d be going to raise tax rates on the wealthy, and never mind that it won’t actually work. And you knew and I knew that when Rahm Emanuel informed the world that you never let a good crisis go to waste, he meant it. So, it seems almost a duty to mock the people who are just now coming to the realization that they’re not only going to get beaten with clubs; they’re going to get beaten with the clubs that they themselves have paid for.
When politicians tell you they’re going after your money, believe it.
