17. MAJOR difference. myth wrongney is nothing but a HOARDER.

It strikes me that anyone with his kind of money, anyone with Wall Street's kind of money, has NO BUSINESS whining about "uncertainty." When you have that kind of money in your back pocket, or stashed away somewhere that only you can reach, YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY UNCERTAINTY IN YOUR LIFE!!!!! PERIOD!!!!! NOT THE SLIGHTEST FUCKING BIT!!!!!!!

I'm sick and tired of hearing the fat cats and high rollers whining and sniveling about how they can't possibly do anything about investing in the economy or creating jobs because of "UNCERTAINTY!!!!!"

I'm even SICKER and MORE tired of hearing this new trend of fat-cat mega-rich CEOs sniveling and whining in emails to their employees that they're not sure what's gonna happen to THEIR business if YOU don't vote the way THEY want you to - or else.

Do you know what "uncertainty" is?

"Uncertainty" is when you're not sure you'll have enough money to buy food and your meds, and still have money left over to cover the house payment.

"Uncertainty" is when you're not sure if you'll be able to send your gifted child to college - when you still have to pay out of pocket to care for an elderly relative.

"Uncertainty" is when more and more people in your office are getting pink slips in your paycheck, and you're not sure if you'll be next - and no one's talking to you from upstairs, much less telling you the truth.

"Uncertainty" is when the phone keeps ringing. And you're afraid to pick it up because it's probably another bill collector for whom you have no satisfactory response. And you don't know what they're gonna do to you - or what they CAN do, or how ruthless they'll be.

"Uncertainty" is when you're not sure how long it'll be before you are realistically living in your car.

THAT is fucking damn-ass UNCERTAINTY!!!! When you have more money than God, you DO NOT have ANY "uncertainty" in your life, and there is NO trouble, NO wolf-at-the-door, NO threats, and NO dangers - from which your money can't buy you a way out.

None of them seems to remember that The Christ - that very same Savior they claim to worship - drove their kind OUT of the Temple in one of the very few times the Gospels say He actually got royally pissed off and threw a temper fit. None of them remembers how they're nothing but camels facing the Pearly Gates - that are the size of the eye of a needle. And I'm sure they think they're far more Christian than the rest of us, too.
