A Message From Us Rich Plutocrats To All You Little People



So whatís puzzling you about why we hate Obama? Heís in our way. And thatís a much bigger threat to us than higher tax rates. Our incredible sway over politics, the economy and culture is being challenged.

Repeat after me. You sir, are a job creator and the richer you get, the better off my family will be. Regulation is bad, and the less of it we have, the better off my family will be. Never forget these things. And never forget that the rising inequality you see all around isnít a sign of decay. Itís a sign of prosperity. Get with the program. Now. Or we will fire you.




I love this for it's cynical irony - "You sir, are a job creator and the richer you get, the better off my family will be. Regulation is bad, and the less of it we have, the better off my family will be."

Sadly, there are a whole lot of sleep deprived people working 12 hour night shifts who believe this...
