The Idle Rich

Posted on May 10, 2011 11:01 am

I have a new Pajamas Media column out on the blight of the idle rich — those who got all their wealth handed to them and take it for granted. Go read and be educated.

    The next step would be to change the attitudes of all the idle wealthy in this country. Everyone born in this country owes a huge debt to those who went before and built it up for us, and if you’re not going to try and be one who adds to the wealth of this country, at least be grateful for what you have and don’t think you’re owed any more or have a right to the wealth of anyone else.

    Emphasis mine. The truest paragraph I’ve seen you write, Frank. I’ve tried to live my life to the utmost for the purpose of fulfilling what I put in italics.

    Excellent article Frank. It boggles the mind for me to even comprehend anyone over 16 contemplating the thought that people wealthier than them are unfair and/or evil.

    Good rant, Mr. Frank J. Ayn Rand mindmeld complete.

    You’re spot on, but the neo-colonialists, like Obama, Rathke, Ayers and Wright would agree with you. These nits argue that we don’t deserve wealth. Says Obama, “The United States is wealthy because it robbed the rest of the world, so I will redistribute wealth back by allowing the third world to tax our energy consumption in the form of carbon credits, and then I’ll drive up the costs of petro-fuels so third world nations can get it cheaper than we do. Plus, I wish I had the brains of a crow. If I could be a crow, I wouldn’t be so afraid of Michelle.”

    Note that in their enfeebled brains, these spider monkeys believe that they are acting for the good of America by righting perceived wrongs and bringing the US into a perceived fairer place in the world.

    Brillaint. And funny, too. Should be required reading in all high schools.

    to add to the “to try and be one who adds to the wealth of this country” I wouul;d like to add “and not be a burden to the other wealth producers”.

    We’re going to have a lot of exports on our hands! So like where do we send the complainers. Oh yea…I know! Afganistan or Iraq! We own both places and can carve out a nice little village for these people! Excellent article Frank J!

    Heh heh heh, USSJC said Village People.

    FrankJ, you make us proud!

    A magnum opus in 2 pages. Phucking brilliant. Seriously.

    like the punchline to that famous joke (“How may feminists does it take to change a light bulb”), and storm1911 notwithstanding, that’s not funny.

    Frank J. for Preznit!

    And if you get elected, we can go back to spelling president correctly.
