>…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.

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  I have an advanced degree in engineering, and my skillset did become outdated, but that wasn’t the ultra-rich’s fault.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.
