The Biggest “Fat Cat” of All
by Frank J. Fleming
All the folks protesting the “wealthiest 1 percent” seem so earnest — how could anyone not take drum circles seriously? — and yet they all blatantly ignore America’s most egregious example of unearned wealth. While the “Occupy” people pick on a few small-fry millionaires and billionaires, they haven’t taken on the one who has far, far too much money, got his wealth through dubious means and doesn’t appreciate the cash he has.
I’m speaking, of course, of that fat-cat weasel Uncle Sam.
If you want a great example of income inequality, compare Sam to any minuscule billionaire. He spends the net worth of Bill Gates in a couple of weeks. In fact, this one guy takes in a staggering 28 percent of all the wealth earned in this nation.
If you’re wondering where all our money went, look to the country’s only trillionaire, who is stroking his weird goat beard and laughing at us.
Heh. Quite true.
