26. It is impossible to discuss the current economic situation...

...without making some general observations. To take it personally is just silly IMO. We all know there are many good people who are wealthy, and we also all know there are many rich people who live up to all the negative stereotypes.

Possibly Taibbi should have limited his discussion to the top .1% or even the top .01%. Because those who buy islands, and who buy politicians, and who have direct influence on public policy, tend to be not the rich but the super-rich.
