73. His final sentence pretty much sums it up
Wealth is not a four-letter word, and I should have the unfettered right to spend or invest 100 percent of it at my discretion.

Translation: Fuck all y'all, I got mine. Yeah, I know my taxes go to provide some health care to people who can't afford it, and they pay to maintain roads I drive my huge-ass, gas-suckin' Hummer down every day, and some of 'em pay for books and buildings and teacher salaries for the public school system (which I attended, but I ain't attendin' 'em no more, so goddamn, let me keep the part of my taxes that would pay for that), and they pay for the war that I strongly support but won't fight in. (Hey, I'm too busy makin' money and bein' all "upwardly mobile" 'n' shit.) It's my world, assholes--you're just livin' in it.
