I say, it’s refreshing to finally have a President who openly admits the needs of the rich outweigh those of the poor. This Obama fellow, it appears, threatened to veto any bill that would take money away from Race to the Top. As readers are no doubt aware, Race to the Top encourages innovations from chaps like Bill Gates, yours truly, and those lovable Wal-Mart folks. We have priorities and we know what’s important.
When we get to close a public school and drain it of unionized employees, it’s good for business. As any fool knows, what’s good for business is good for America. Otherwise, why would the government see fit to bail us out whenever we find ourselves in a bit of a tizzy? It’s brilliant of the Obama fellow to take the funds from food stamps. What on earth do people produce by using food stamps? It is, frankly, one of the most unproductive uses of money I can imagine. What does it produce?
To take it a step further, what would happen if one of the great unwashed consumed something poisonous? Would the government step in to help? Hopefully not, as that would cause even more drain on society, and possibly lead to a tax increase for PLUs. On the other hand, if I were to make a spectacularly unfavorable investment, you can be sure that this government would fly to my rescue and cover it, as they did last year.
It’s fairly clear that investing in rich people involves no risk whatsoever, while investing in the bootless and unhorsed is a dicey prospect indeed.
