Why isn’t this man rich?
Somehow “income inequality” failed to become the hot campaign issue of the 2016 election–probably because it looks so freakin’ ridiculous when some gazillionaire politician complains about it and says that you, the hard-pressed taxpayer, ought to shell out more money so they can lavish it on ne’er-do-wells and sluggards.
Why do people in government make such preposterously extravagant claims? “We’re gonna create income equality! We’re going to stop the climate from changing! We’re gonna to direct the course of human evolution!”
Are these people quite all there?
And what’s wrong with us, that we allow liars and mountebanks to lord it over us?
