The great American fortunes, shipping, steel and railroads in the 19th century, Autos, rubber, oil in the 20th, electronics and attendant software today and grasping, greedy bankers all along the way, were made by graft, corruption, political patronage and the ruthless suppression of legitimate competition. This isn't lying liberal propaganda, just the sad truth about a supposedly free enterprise society.
We're hearing a lot about how Barry O is a socialist maniac, out to redistribute the precious, hard earned wealth of honest Americans. What the fuck does that mean. I worked hard for a long time. Whenever there was an opening, I worked hard to get promoted and often was. Maybe I didn't make a lot but it was more than a lot of people did. I saved almost every penny I ever made. I don't really have very much. Given inflationary trends in a lot less time than it took me to save it, I will have nothing, whether I spend it or not.
I hope Barry redistributes the hell out of the wealth. The people that have most of it either stole it or inherited it and never worked a day in their lives. I'm not stupid enough to think I would get any of the redistributed wealth. I might even be one who gets what wealth he has redistributed. I don't care. It would be worth it just to see.
