And a large round of “attaboy” to fellow billionaire Patrick Byrne, chief executive of Overstock.com. After the voucher measure he financed went down to ignominious defeat, he called the referendum a state IQ test that the voters failed.
Bravo, Patty old boy. Why on earth should people like us have to shoulder the entire cost of education for our kids while the great rabble sends their spawn to the nearest available public schools at our expense? Why should we have to support their urchins and our own children as well?
Don’t those low-IQ Philistines know that the more money we have, the more money they will eventually have? It’s all about investment. While they may go out and squander their money on food, or rent, or whatever such individuals spend it on, we’ll invest the money in the economy, which will benefit everyone.
Cheers again to Patty for putting the billionaire point of view front and center! We need more like him!
