>…Spike, you said you have no animosity toward the ultra rich and I accept that, but if you were unemployed because your skill set had just become obsolete due to technology and your child was dying of a treatable disease because you couldn't afford health insurance you might have a different attitude.
John K Clark
On the contrary John. I have an advanced degree in engineering, and my skillset did become outdated, but that wasn’t the ultra-rich’s fault. Health insurance damn well has become outrageously expensive, but that still isn’t the ultra-rich’s fault. I don’t see anything they have done wrong or what good it would do to criticize them. I don’t even see the line of reasoning that would implicate them. The ultra-rich are our friends. They invest in stuff that creates jobs. OK cool, the richer the better.
