Stop, look, listen. Limousine liberals yap about “Income Inequality” at $30,000-a-plate dinners. From his luxurious vacation hideaway in Hawaii, paid for by you and me, the Occupant of the White House chides Congress for taking vacations. Rolling Stone runs an editorial calling for abolition of private property ownership, “guaranteed jobs” for everyone, and a guaranteed income. Only “hard, old-fashioned communism” can save America, prattles an MSNBC talking head.

Betcha it was. I betcha it was.
